From Probability to Statistics and Back: HighDimensional Models and
Processes  A Festschrift in Honor of Jon A. Wellner
Editors: M. Banerjee, F. Bunea, J. Huang, V. Koltchinskii, and M. H. Maathuis
View this volume in:
Project Euclid
For more than thirty years, Jon A. Wellner has made outstanding
contributions to several very active and important areas of statistics
and probability. His results have been especially influential in
semiparametric statistics, estimation and testing problems under shape
constraints, empirical processes theory (both classical and abstract),
survival analysis, biostatistics, bootstrap, probability in Banach
spaces and highdimensional probability. Among the main features of
Jon’s work are his exceptional taste and ability to identify research
problems in statistics that are both challenging and important, his
deep understanding of the purely mathematical side of statistics, his
extraordinary curiosity and interest in the work of others and the
quality of his insights.

Nonparametrics and Robustness in Modern Statistical Inference and Time Series Analysis:
A Festschrift in honor of Professor Jana Jurecková
J. Antoch, M. Huskova and P. K. Sen, Editors
View this volume in:
Project Euclid
In the broader domain of Statistics and Probability theory, Jana Jurecková is a distinguished researcher, especially in Europe and among the women researchers. Her fundamental research contributions stemmed from the inspiring ideas of her advisor Jaroslav Hájek and covered the evolving areas of nonparametrics, general asymptotic theory, robust statistics, as well as, applications in sampling theory, econometrics and environmetrics.

Borrowing Strength: Theory Powering Applications
A Festschrift for Lawrence D. Brown
James O. Berger, T. Tony Cai, and Iain M. Johnstone, Editors
View this volume in:
Project Euclid
Larry is one of the leading statisticians of our time; his work has spanned the theory and application of statistics, from its mathematical and philosophical foundations in the decision theoretic assessment of widely used methods through to influential policy advice on critical national statistical instruments such as the decennial census. Topics covered in this volume include: Decision Theory; High Dimensional Models; Modeling DataApplications; Modeling Data Topology; Model Selection and Testing; Nonparametric Regression and Basis Function Models; and Shrinkage Estimation.

High Dimensional Probability V: The Luminy Volume
Christian Houdré, Vladimir Koltchinskii, David Mason and Magda Peligrad, Editors
View this volume in:
Project Euclid
The term High Dimensional Probability in the title of this volume refers to a circle of ideas and problems that originated in Probability in Banach Spaces and the Theory of Gaussian Processes more than forty years ago. Initially, the main focus was on the study of necessary and sufficient conditions for the continuity of Gaussian processes and of classical limit theorems–laws of large numbers, laws of iterated logarithm and central limit theorems in Banach spaces.

Markov Processes and Related Topics: A Festschrift for Thomas G. Kurtz
Stewart N. Ethier, Jin Feng, Richard H. Stockbridge, Editors
View this volume in:
Project Euclid
A fourday conference, “Markov Processes and Related Topics,” was held at the University of Wisconsin–Madison July 10–13, 2006, in celebration of Tom Kurtz’s 65th birthday and his many contributions to mathematics. Speakers were invited to submit a paper to this collection, and after a lengthy refereeing and editing process, the present “Festschrift” volume has emerged. Its diversity of topics is a reflection of the wide range of subjects to which Tom has contributed.
