In very general terms there are two reasons for introducing sequential methods into statistical analysis. One is to solve more efficiently a problem which has a fixed sample solution. The other is to deal with problems for which no fixed sample solution exists. It is the first category which is the primary concern of this book, but we begin here with a few comments about the second.
