Synopsis: Keeping pace with the latest developments in all branches of statistical science.
Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences is the number one source of information on statistical theory, methods, and applications for researchers and clinicians. This new volume is the last of three updates designed to bring the Encyclopedia in line with new and emerging topics and important advances in statistical science made over the past decade. Each self-contained entry is written by a leader in the field and easily understood by readers with a modest statistical background. In addition to the main selections, which feature fascinating discussions of developments in various branches of the statistical sciences, readers will find a series of shorter entries ranging in subject matter from the lives of pioneers in statistics to updates of earlier articles and reviews of statistical agencies and journals. Up-to-date bibliographies, thorough cross-referencing, and extensive indexing facilitate quick access to specific information and provide an indispensable platform for further study and research. A cumulative index and listing of all the entries in the 13 volumes of the Encyclopedia, together with the corresponding authors, are included.
With the publication of this update installment, the Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences retains its position as the only cutting-edge reference of choice for those working in statistics, probability theory, biostatistics, quality control, and economics and in applications of statistical methods in sociology, engineering, computer and communication science, biomedicine, psychology, and many other areas.
