Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics II is a compendium of papers presented at an international symposium on Statistical Decision Theory and Related Topics held at Purdue University in May, 1976. The researchers invited to participate, and to author papers for this volume, are among the leaders in the field of Statistical Decision Theory. This collection features works on general decision theory, multiple decision theory, optimal experimental design, and robustness. Mathematicians and statisticians will find the book highly insightful and informative.
