Request a sales quoteA wide range of topics and perspectives in the field of statistics are brought together in this volume. The contributions originate from invited papers presented at an international conference which was held in honour of C. Radhakrishna Rao, one of the most eminent statisticians of our time and a distinguished scientist.
