Advances in Statistics, Combinatorics and Related Areas: Selected Papers from SCRA2001-FIM VIII

This book is a collection of selected refereed papers presented at the International Conference on Statistics, Combinatorics and Related Areas, and the Eighth International Conference of the Forum for Interdisciplinary Mathematics. It includes contributions from eminent statisticians such as Joe Gani, Clive Granger, Chris Heyde, R Nishii, C R Rao, P K Sen and Sue Wilson. By exploring and investigating deeper, these papers enlarge the reservoir in the represented areas of research, such as bioinformatics, estimating functions, financial statistics, generalized linear models, goodness of fit, image analysis, industrial data analysis, multivariate statistics, neural networks, quasi-likelihood, sample surveys, statistical inference, stochastic models, and time series.
