About the Authors
  • Multiple Decision Procedures: Theory and Methodology of Selecting and Ranking Populations provides an encyclopaedic coverage of the literature in the area of ranking and selection procedures, summarizing and surveying in a unified manner a majority of more than 600 main references in the bibliography. It also deals with related problems, such as the estimation of unknown ordered parameters. A separate chapter is devoted to information about several tables available in the literature for carrying out various specific procedures. Examples are given in another chapter illustrating applications of these procedures in various practical contexts. This book can serve as a text for a graduate topics course in ranking and selection. It will also serve as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in various fields, such as agriculture, industry, engineering, and behavioral sciences.
