excellent encyclopedia 12 Dec 2008
By Michael R. Chernick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have the first edition of this which was a six volume set. The editors are the same. Peter Armitage is a world famous biostatistician. The entries in the first edition were excellent and up to the standards set by the Encyclopedia of Statistical Sciences by Johnson, Kotz and Read. I would expect the same in the second edition and the expansion to 8 volumes is just a testament to the new terms and methodologies that have matured over the last several year.
