Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book comprises selected papers presented at the XIX Annual Congress of the Portuguese Statistical Society (SPE) in 2011. … given the broad range of topics covered, the book should be well received by postgraduates and researchers in applied statistics and computing.” (Soubhik Chakraborty, Computing Reviews, November, 2014)
