## Bayesian and Likelihood Methods in Statistics and Econometrics: Essays in Honor of George A. BarnardThis volume is dedicated to Professor George A. Barnard, an internationally acclaimed statistician, who is renowned not only for his statistical expertise but also for his broad knowledge of the history of statistics and its relation to the philosophy of science and applications in many fields of natural, biological and social science. The papers in this volume treat a broad spectrum of topics ranging from theoretical inference to applied forecasting and computation, which reflects George Barnard's wide ranging interest in, and work on, theoretical and applied statistical problems. |
