Mathematical Statistics: Basic Ideas and Selected Topics, Volume II presents important statistical concepts, methods, and tools not covered in the authors' previous volume. This second volume focuses on inference in non- and semiparametric models. It not only reexamines the procedures introduced in the first volume from a more sophisticated point o
