This classic book retains its outstanding ongoing features and continues to provide readers with excellent background material necessary for a successful understanding of mathematical statistics. Chapter topics cover classical statistical inference procedures in estimation and testing, and an in-depth treatment of sufficiency and testing theory including uniformly most powerful tests and likelihood ratios. Many illustrative examples and exercises enhance the presentation of material throughout the book. For a more complete understanding of mathematical statistics.
