VOL. 57 | 2009 Some History of Optimality

Abstract

This paper gives an account of the history of both small- and large-sample optimality for both estimation and testing. It covers this history from the beginnings by Laplace and Gauss to the ongoing research on optimal multiple comparison procedures, and also includes the optimality of designs.
