A Look Inside
Flap Copy
The first one of its kind, this book compiles autobiographical essays on the scientific lives of ten leading Indian statisticians who emerged from the great statistical movement initiated and guided by P.C. Mahalanobis, the founder of the Indian Statistical Institute. The success achieved by them in their creative endeavours as well as the difficulties that they encountered have been detailed. The present volume will serve as a source of inspiration for aspiring young statisticians as well as a permanent record of development of statistics as a discipline in India.
