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.

Research on mixed models has been extensive over the most recent decade. This book differs from the authors' previous monographs on longitudinal data in that it focuses on mixed models of a linear, generalized linear and nonlinear type. The book pays attention to recent developments that include ...

Outside of randomized experiments, association does not imply causation, and yet there is nothing defective about our knowledge that smoking causes lung cancer, a conclusion reached in the absence of randomized experimentation with humans. How is that possible? If observed associations do not ...

Object Oriented Data Analysis is a framework that facilitates inter-disciplinary research through new terminology for discussing the often many possible approaches to the analysis of complex data. Such data are naturally arising in a wide variety of areas. This book aims to provide ways of thinking...

The authors of this monograph have developed a large and important class of survival analysis models that generalize most of the existing models. In a unified, systematic presentation, this monograph fully details those models and explores areas of accelerated life testing usually only touched upon...
