Ordered Data Analysis, Modeling and Health Research Methods In Honor of H. N. Nagaraja's 60th Birthday

This volume presents an eclectic mix of original research articles in areas covering the analysis of ordered data, stochastic modeling and biostatistics. These areas were featured in a conference held at the University of Texas at Dallas from March 7 to 9, 2014 in honor of Professor H. N. Nagaraja’s...
