## Statistical InferenceThis text provides information on topics such as ancillarity, invariance, Bayesian methods, pivots, Stein estimation, errors in variables and inequalities. The authors discuss both theoretical statistics and the practical applications of the theoretical developments. Many ideas are introduced in the context of data analysis rather than pure mathematics. |
