Summary: Hardbound. Volume 17 of the Handbook of Statistics is the concluding volume covering Order Statistics. Dealing

primarily with Applications, it is divided into six parts as follows: Results for Specific Distributions, Linear Estimation, Inferential

Methods, Prediction, Goodness-of-fit Tests and Applications. Major theoretical advances were made in this area of research,

and in the course of these developments order statistics has also found important applications in many diverse areas. These

include life-testing and reliability, robustness studies, statistical quality control, filtering theory, signal processing, image

processing, and radar target detection.
Theoretical researchers working on theoretical and methodological advancements on order statistics and applied statisticians

and engineers developing new and innovative applications of order statistics have been successfully brought together to create

this handbook
