About this book


The contributions collected in this book have been written by well-known statisticians to acknowledge Ludwig Fahrmeir's far-reaching impact on Statistics as a science, while celebrating his 65th birthday. The contributions cover broad areas of contemporary statistical model building, including semiparametric and geoadditive regression, Bayesian inference in complex regression models, time series modelling, statistical regularization, graphical models and stochastic volatility models.

From the reviews:

“The festschrift is a collection of 24 contributions stemming from a wide area of statistical models ranging from semiparametric and geoadditive regression to Bayesian inference, time series modeling, statistical regularization, and others. The topics are of current interest. … The format of the volume is uniform and nicely presented … . will be a useful resource for graduate students, researchers, and practitioners with an interest in these topics. I think the festschrift deserves a broad readership.” (Technometrics, Vol. 52 (3), August, 2010)
