*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

"The book is an excellent and thorough outline of work in the area. It would provide an ideal volume for someone who plans to undertake research in the area." -International Statistical Review, 2013 "The book provides a comprehensive overview of the theory of density-based minimum distance methods and it is well written and easy to read and understand. The book is well suited for graduate students, professionals and researchers not only in statistics but also in biosciences, engineering and various other fields where statistical inference plays a fundamental role." -Alex Karagrigoriou, Journal of Applied Statistics, 2012 Read more...
