Abstract

Three papers from the early history of efficient parametric estimation are reprinted with commentary: (1) Fisher (1912), "On an absolute criterion for fitting frequency curves"; (2) Engledow and Yule (1914), "The determination of the best value of the coupling-ratio from a given set of data"; and (3) Fisher (1922), "The systematic location of genes by means of crossover observations."
