## Statistical theory and modelling: in honour of Sir David Cox, FRSStatistical Theory and Modelling is a celebration of the work of Sir David Cox, FRS, and reflects his many interests in statistical theory and methods. It is a series of review articles, intended as an introduction to a variety of topics suitable for the graduate student and practicing statistician. Many of the topics are the subject of book-length treatments by Sir David and authors of this volume. Each chapter leads to a larger literature. Topics range the breadth of statistics and include modern degvelopments in statistical theory and methods. Special topics covered are generalized linear models, residuals and diagnostics, survival analysis, sequential analysis, time series, stochastic modelling of spatial data, design of experiments, likelihood inference and statistical approximation. |
