Anirban DasGupta, ed., A Festschrift for Herman Rubin (Beachwood, Ohio, USA: Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2004)
This volume is a collection of 32 original papers and two biographical accounts put together as a Festschrift to Herman Rubin to honor his diverse and many deep contributions to mathematical sciences over more than 50 years. The topics of the original articles touch on the main themes in which Professor Rubin has contributed, as well as other topics of intense current activity. This volume contains innovative new methodological articles on cluster analysis, goodness of fit, likelihood inference, classification algorithms, and meta analysis. On the purely theoretical side, there are a number of comprehensive review articles on fractional Brownian motion, stochastic integration, de Finetti theorems, admissibility, and estimation under constraints. Each of these review articles provides readable glimpses into the current state of the art. Some notable classic unsolved problems in number theory and random permutations provide attractive additions to the interesting landscape of this volume.
