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.

This book explains why geometry should enter into parametric statistics and how the theory of asymptotic expansions involves a form of higher-order differential geometry. It gives some new explanations of geometric ideas from a first principles point of view as far as geometry is concerned....

This book takes the standard methods as the starting point, and then describes a wide range of relatively new approaches and procedures designed to deal with more complicated data and experiments - including much recent research in the area. Throughout mention is given to the computing ...

This book provides a comprehensive survey of the most recent methodology--both theoretical and applied--on the statistical analysis and detection of defective/"non-conforming" items in various types of inspection for attributes, when the inspection itself is subject to error....

This is a classic book on Queues. First published in 1961 it is clearly and concisely introduces the theory of queueing systems and is still just as relevant today. The monograph is aimed at both students and operational research workers concerned with the practical investigations of queueing, ...

This book describes an array of power tools for data analysis that are based on nonparametric regression and smoothing techniques. These methods relax the linear assumption of many standard models and allow analysts to uncover structure in the data that might otherwise have been missed. While ...

Repeated measures data arise when the same characteristic is measured on each case or subject at several times or under several conditions. There is a multitude of techniques available for analysing such data and in the past this has led to some confusion. This book describes the whole spectrum ...

The success of the first edition of Generalized Linear Models led to the updated Second Edition, which continues to provide a definitive unified, treatment of methods for the analysis of diverse types of data. Today, it remains popular for its clarity, richness of content and direct relevance to ...

The first edition of this book (1970) set out a systematic basis for the analysis of binary data and in particular for the study of how the probability of 'success' depends on explanatory variables. The first edition has been widely used and the general level and style have been preserved in the ...

The book gives an up-to-date account of various approaches availablefor the analysis of infectious disease data. Most of the methods havebeen developed only recently, and for those based on particularlymodern mathematics, details of the computation are carefullyillustrated. Interpretation is ...
By Raymond J. Carroll, David Ruppert
August 01, 1988
This monograph provides a careful review of the major statistical techniques used to analyze regression data with nonconstant variability and skewness. The authors have developed statistical techniques--such as formal fitting methods and less formal graphical techniques-- that can be applied to ...
By Bernard. W. Silverman
April 01, 1986
Although there has been a surge of interest in density estimation in recent years, much of the published research has been concerned with purely technical matters with insufficient emphasis given to the technique's practical value. Furthermore, the subject has been rather inaccessible to the ...

This monograph contains many ideas on the analysis of survival data to present a comprehensive account of the field. The value of survival analysis is not confined to medical statistics, where the benefit of the analysis of data on such factors as life expectancy and duration of periods of freedom...
