Edited by

  • P.R. Krishnaiah
  • P.K. Sen

Prominent statisticians discuss in this volume, the general methodological aspects of nonparametric methods, and applications, in a logically integrated and systematic form. The topics covered include biological assays, cancer research, categorical data analysis, clinical trials, empirical distributions, estimation procedures, life testing and reliability, linear models, meteorological applications, order statistics, robustness, sequential methods, statistical tables, and time series.
