Luc Pronzato and Anatoly Zhigljavsy (eds)
This edited volume is dedicated to Professor Henry Wynn, director of the Decision Support and Risk Group at LSE, on the occasion of his sixtieth birthday.
It reflects his broad range of research interests, focusing in particular on the applications of optimal design theory in optimization and statistics. It covers algorithms for constructing optimal experimental designs, general gradient-type algorithms for convex optimization, majorization and stochastic ordering, algebraic statistics, Bayesian networks and nonlinear regression.
Written by leading specialists in the field, each chapter contains a survey of the existing literature along with substantial new material.
This work will appeal to both the specialist and the non-expert in the areas covered. By attracting the attention of experts in optimization to important interconnected areas, it should help stimulate further research with a potential impact on applications.
The volume also contains papers written by Professor Henry Wynn.
