About this book

Barry Arnold has made fundamental contributions to many different areas of statistics, including distribution theory, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, bounds and orderings, and characterization problems. Organized to honor Arnold’s significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the "International Conference on Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference," held at the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain.

Several distinguished and active researchers highlight some of the recent developments in statistical distribution theory, order statistics and their properties, as well as inferential methods associated with them. Applications to survival analysis, reliability, quality control, and environmental problems are emphasized. The volume is classified into the following five parts, according to the focus of the articles:

 

* Discrete distributions and applications

 

* Continuous distributions and applications

 

* Order statistics and applications

 

* Reliability and applications

 

* Inference

 

This comprehensive reference work will serve the statistical and applied mathematics communities, as well as practitioners, researchers, and graduate students in applied probability and statistics, reliability engineering, and biostatistics.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This volume, which is written in the honour of Professor Barry C. Arnold, reflects his diverse interests and recognizes his important contributions to different areas of statistics (e.g., order statistics, distribution theory, Bayesian inference … and characterization problems). … This book marks the main advances in these areas of research containing theory, methods, applications and extensive bibliographies. All these elements recommend this work as a significant scientific contribution and an important instrument for researchers and graduate students in the areas of statistics and applied mathematics.” (Lucian Maticiuc, Iasi Polytechnic Magazine, Vol. 21 (1/4), March/December, 2009)
