# 20 Handbooks on Modern Statistical Methods

20 Handbooks on Modern Statistical Methods

With the two most recent ones, in this CRC series, published in January 2019.

The objective of the series is to provide high-quality volumes covering the state-of-the-art in the theory and applications of statistical methodology. The books in the series are thoroughly-edited and present comprehensive, coherent and unified summaries of specific methodological topics from statistics. The chapters are written by the leading researchers in the field, and present a good balance of theory and application through a synthesis of the key methodological developments and examples and case studies using real data.

The scope of the series is wide, covering topics of statistical methodology that are well developed and find application in a range of scientific disciplines. The volumes are primarily of interest to researchers and graduate students from statistics and biostatistics, but also appeal to scientists from fields where the methodology is applied to real problems, including medical research, epidemiology and public health, engineering, biological science, environmental science and the social sciences.

Note from the Editor: These books might be much less expensive if you do not purchase directly from the publisher. I suggest that you also check the price on Amazon and elsewhere. I received the announcement about these books, in my mailbox. In the email dated February 6, they included a code (STM19) to get a 15% discount.
