Series: Handbook of Statistics

The Handbook of Statistics is a series of self-contained reference books, with each volume devoted to a particular topic in statistics. Every chapter is written by prominent contributors in the field. The series addresses the community of statisticians as a whole, as well as scientists in various disciplines who use statistical methodology in their work. At the same time, special emphasis is placed on applications-oriented techniques, with the applied statistician in mind as the primary audience. For further information about the series please contact the Series Editor or the Acquisitions Editor, Kirsten Shankland at k.shankland@elsevier.com.
