From the PublisherNew record values in sports, finances, climate, ... are of interest to most people, and for about half a century, probabilists and statisticians have taken up the challenge of modelling their behaviour. The present monograph provides results on statistical inference problems for record-breaking data. For example: how to fit a parametric or nonparametric model to such data? Or also: how to predict the next record, based on the values of the past records. The main body of the book (Chapters 4-7) is a discussion of all the known work on nonparametric inference for this type of data.
The book will be a useful reference for researchers in this area. There could also be interest from engineers working in destructive stress testing and quality control.
