Description

As one of the great statisticians of the century, Sir Maurice Kendall worked in areas covering an extraordinary range from intricate theory to detailed application. This memorial selection concentrates on a number of his less well known papers. They fall into four general groups. First are four papers concerned with applications, including his Presidential Address to the Royal Statistical Society. The next group consists of six papers on the theory of symmetric functions of sample observations. The third group includes a selection of Kendall's papers in the theory of ranking methods, including his 1938 discovery of the rank correlation coefficient since named after him. The last group of papers contains three of his early papers on the theory of time-series. General statistical readers as well as specialists will appreciate the book's sampling of Kendall's remarkable range of contributions.show more
