Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In honor of Samuel Kotz, an international collection of articles on the latest advances in statistics.

This tribute to Samuel Kotz features articles by eminent statisticians from around the world, all recognizing the lifetime of accomplishments of one of the premier statisticians of our time. Centered on distributions, models, and their applications, this book highlights some recent developments in both theory and applications of statistics.

Editors Norman L. Johnson and N. Balakrishnan, both of whom have collaborated extensively with Samuel Kotz, have gathered contributions from theoreticians and practitioners in 18 countries, giving the volume a global perspective. Each article is classified into one of 10 areas in the theory and practice of statistics. The areas highlighted in this volume are:

  • Statistics in the world.
  • Models.
  • Biostatistics.
  • Testing and estimation.
  • Univariate distributions.
  • Multivariate distributions.
  • Characterizations.
  • Probability.
  • Bayes theory.
  • Descriptive statistics.

Many of the articles in the volume highlight Samuel Kotz's pioneering and fundamental contributions to these areas. Commemorative articles by those who knew and worked with Samuel Kotz, as well as the detailed exploration of classical and new directions in statistical research, make this volume an essential addition to any statistics library.

Book News Annotation:

In tribute to statistician Samuel Kotz (b. 1930), the editors present his multinational biography and his publications list, before 67 international contributors expound upon far-ranging topics in statistical models, biostatistics, univariate and multivariate distributions, characterizations of exponential distributions, probability, Bayes Theory, and the descriptive Peters-Belson approach to measures of economic and legal discrimination. The intriguing initial section focuses upon Kotz's fostering of "dispersion and cohesion in the statistical profession," and the relationship between the often naughty playmates of politics and statistics. Abbreviations used are helpfully listed.
