The IMS Textbooks series, published with Cambridge University Press, give introductory accounts of topics of current concern suitable for advanced courses at master’s level, for doctoral students and for individual study. They are typically shorter than for a fully developed textbook, often arising from material created for a topical course. The books typically contain exercises.
IMS Monographs are concise research monographs of high quality on any branch of statistics or probability of sufficient interest to warrant publication as books. Some will concern relatively traditional topics in need of up-to-date assessment; others will be on emerging themes. In all cases the objective will be to provide a balanced view of the field.
The Editors for both series are Xiao-Li Meng, Susan Holmes, Ben Hambly, D. R. Cox, Alan Agresti.
