Publisher Synopsis

Review of the hardback: 'Weatherburn's book is excellent...Its great virtue is its compactness of argument, which facilitates seeing the whole.' Nature Review of the hardback: 'A very useful reference book and an excellent text...will be of much aid to both students and teachers' Statistical Methodology Reviews Review of the hardback: 'The need for a book of this kind has been long felt, and Professor Weatherburn is to be congratulated on filling it so admirably...The treatment is remarkably lucid and brings out well the connection between the different distributions, and the underlying unity of the subject.' Economica Review of the hardback: 'A worthy contribution...The book is carefully written, and the result is a high order of clarity throughout. It is not a little astonishing to realise after reading the book how much both of theory and of example has been set comfortably in 271 pages...This is a book every statistician will want in his library.' American Statistical Association Book Review Review of the hardback: 'A much needed and well written book...should be of interest to others apart from those for whom it is specifically written. Professor Weatherburn is not only a mathematician: he is an able and experienced teacher.' Times Educational Supplement Read more...
