    Presenting the first comprehensive review of the subject's theory and applications inmore than 15 years, this outstanding reference encompasses the most-up-to-date advances in lognormal distributions in thorough, detailed contributions by specialists in statistics, business and economics, industry, biology, ecology, geology, and meteorology. Lognormal Distributions describes the theory and methods of point and intervalestimation as well as the testing of hypotheses clearly and precisely from a modemviewpoint-not only for the basic two-parameter lognormal distribution but also for itsgeneralizations, including three parameters, truncated distributions, delta-lognormaldistributions, and two or more dimensions.Featuring over 600 references plus author and subject indexes, this volume rev iews thesubject's history .. . gives explicit formulas for minimum variance unbiased estimates ofparameters and their variances ... provides optimal tests of hypotheses and confidenceinterval procedures for various functions of the parameters in the two-parameter model. .. and discusses practical methods of analysis for truncated, censored, or groupedsamples.
