Since its inception in 1960 under the leadership of Sir David R. Cox, the series has established itself as a leading outlet for monographs presenting advances in statistical and applied probability research. With over 150 books published - over 100 still in print - the series has gained a reputation for outstanding quality.
The scope of the series is wide, incorporating developments in statistical methodology of relevance to a range of application areas. The monographs in the series present succinct and authoritative overviews of methodology, often with an emphasis on application through worked examples and software for their implementation. They are written so as to be accessible to graduate students, researchers and practitioners of statistics, as well as quantitative scientists from the many relevant areas of application.
Please contact us if you have an idea for a book for the series.

Bayesian methods in reliability cannot be fully utilized and understood without full comprehension of the essential differences that exist between frequentist probability and subjective probability. Switching from the frequentist to the subjective approach requires that some fundamental concepts be...
