Theory of Rank Tests book cover

Theory of Rank Tests

The first edition of Theory of Rank Tests (1967) has been the precursor to a unified and theoretically motivated treatise of the basic theory of tests based on ranks of the sample observations. For more than 25 years, it helped raise a generation of statisticians in cultivating their theoretical research in this fertile area, as well as in using these tools in their application oriented research. The present edition not only aims to revive this classical text by updating the findings but also by incorporating several other important areas which were either not properly developed before 1965 or have gone through an evolutionary development during the past 30 years. This edition therefore aims to fulfill the needs of academic as well as professional statisticians who want to pursue nonparametrics in their academic projects, consultation, and applied research works.

Audience
Graduate students in mathematical sciences (statistics, applied statistics, and biostatistics), academics, professional statisticians, and mathematicians.

Reviews

  • s book is an updated second edition of the famous and outstanding textbook of Hájek and Å idák. The statistical community is grateful to Å idák and Sen, who continued Hájek's work by their worthwhile treatment of the subject. The present revised and extended edition now presents the topic in a modern form and it is again a landmark."
