Reviews

In his foreword to the book President of International Society for Mathematical Statistics and Probability Theory, Professor A.N. Shiryaev writes:
”The author’s scientific results are interesting and probably right now we have to speak about the beginning of a new (and quite unexpected) trend in the applied statistics, which may be very promising. Written at the top scientific level, the book presents a unique event in the international scientific literature in the field of the applications of the mathematical statistics. No one reader will remain indifferent… ”
