About the Authors
  • Dr Edwards' stimulating and provocative book advances the thesis that the appropriate axiomatic basis for inductive inference is not that of probability, with its addition axiom, but rather likelihood - the concept introduced by Fisher as a measure of relative support amongst different hypotheses. Starting from the simplest considerations and assuming no more than a modest acquaintance with probability theory, the author sets out to reconstruct nothing less than a consistent theory of statistical inference in science.

    Reviews & endorsements

    ' … a cogent and clear argument in favour of likelihood as a basis for statistics.' Operations Research

    'The book is extremely clearly and well written. It contains a wealth of interesting and practical examples drawn from various fields of science. A general book on this topic at this level was long overclue, and having appeared it will be hard to beat.' Mathematical Reviews
