Frequency Analyses of Natural Extreme Events : A Spreadsheets Approach, Hardback Book

Frequency Analyses of Natural Extreme Events : A Spreadsheets Approach Hardback

Part of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Library series



This book is of paramount importance in the fields of engineering and applied sciences, given that through the values obtained by these procedures, many structures, like spillways of dams and highway culverts, are designed and constructed.

The main aim of this book is to provide procedures for implementing many probability distribution functions, all of them based on using a standard and a common computational application known as Excel, which is available to any personal computer user.

The computer procedures are given in enough detail, so readers can develop their own Excel worksheets. All the probability distribution functions in the book have schemes to estimate its parameters, quantiles, and confidence limits through the methods of moments and maximum likelihood.
