About this book

Dedicated to one of the most outstanding researchers in the field of statistics, this volume in honor of C.R. Rao, on the occasion of his 100th birthday, provides a bird’s-eye view of a broad spectrum of research topics, paralleling C.R. Rao’s wide-ranging research interests. The book’s contributors comprise a representative sample of the countless number of researchers whose careers have been influenced by C.R. Rao, through his work or his personal aid and advice. As such, written by experts from more than 15 countries, the book’s original and review contributions address topics including statistical inference, distribution theory, estimation theory, multivariate analysis, hypothesis testing, statistical modeling, design and sampling, shape and circular analysis, and applications. The book will appeal to statistics researchers, theoretical and applied alike, and PhD students. Happy Birthday, C.R. Rao!

Carlos A. Coelho is a Full Professor of Statistics at NOVA University of Lisbon, Portugal. He holds a Ph.D. in Biostatistics from the University of Michigan and his main research focuses on developing likelihood ratio tests in multivariate analysis and obtaining their exact distributions in closed finite form, whenever possible, or developing the so-called near-exact distributions for the other cases, which are sharp asymptotic distributions that are asymptotic for all parameters involved.
