For more than a quarter of a century, this internationally recognized series has fostered the growth of statistical science by publishing upper level textbooks of high quality at reasonable prices. These texts, which cover new frontiers as well as developments in core areas, continue to have a major role in shaping the discipline through the education of young scientists both in statistics as well as in fields wherein the role of statistics is becoming increasingly important.

The series covers a very broad domain. Students in upper level undergraduate and graduate courses in biostatistics, epidemiology, probability and statistics will constitute the primary readership for the series. However, others in areas such as engineering, life science, business, environmental science and social science will find books of interest. Scientists in these areas will also find useful references since emphasis is placed on readability, real examples and case studies, and on tying theory into relevant software such as SAS, Stata, and R.

Please contact us if you have an idea for a book for the series.
