Professor Herbert A. David of Iowa nation college could be turning 70 on December 19, 1995. he's attaining this milestone in existence with a truly special profession as a statistician, educator and administrator. we're bringing out this quantity in his honor to rejoice this celebration and to acknowledge his contributions to reserve statistics, biostatistics and layout of experiments, between others; and to the statistical occupation quite often. With nice admiration, recognize and enjoyment we commit this festschrift to Professor Herbert A. David, often referred to as Herb and H.A. between his pals, colleagues and scholars. once we all started this undertaking in Autumn 1993 and contacted strength members from the above workforce, the enthu siasm used to be out of the ordinary. The fruits of this collective exercise is that this quantity that's being devoted to him to have fun his upcoming birthday. numerous participants have contributed in quite a few capacities to the good fortune ful of entirety of this venture. We in actual fact thank the authors of the papers showing right here. with out their devoted paintings, we might simply have this pref ace! a lot of them have served as (anonymous) referees to boot. additionally, we're grateful to the subsequent colleagues for his or her time and recommendation: John Bunge (Cornell), Z. Govindarajulu (Kentucky), John Klein (Medical U.

This isn't a manifesto. Manifestos offer a glimpse of a global to return and likewise name into being the topic, who even supposing now just a specter needs to materialize to turn into the agent of switch. Manifestos paintings just like the historic prophets, who by way of the ability in their imaginative and prescient create their very own humans. Today's social routine have reversed the order, making manifestos and prophets out of date.

**Raman Spectroscopy: Theory and Practice**

Raman Spectroscopy, quantity 1, was once conceived to supply built-in and finished insurance of all elements of the sector by means of a bunch of experts. despite the fact that, within the 3 years because the first quantity was once released a lot vital paintings has been performed. on account that quantity 1 used to be rather well acquired, this moment quantity has been ready within the trust that an extension of the insurance it deals will fulfill a true want during this swiftly altering and very attention-grabbing box.

**Neural Nets: A Theory for Brains and Machines**

The aim of this publication is to advance neural nets as a powerful conception for either brains and machines. the idea is constructed in shut correlation with the biology of the neuron and the houses of human reasoning. This strategy implies the subsequent: - Updating the biology of the artificialneuron. The neurosciences have skilled a big improvement within the final 50 years.

1) To prove (i), note that F is continuous and - d Xn=XI which together imply F(Xn) is uniformly distributed over (0,1) . 1). On the Proportion above Sample Mean for Symmetric Stable Laws For (ii), observe that n -1-1. X n Q. 2) implies that, for any K > 0, - - P{Xn > K} = P{Xn < -K} -+ 1 2' This means that F{X n) is asymptotically uniformly distributed over (O, 1). 1). For (iii), we begin with F{X) - F{O) = -X{F'{O) + op{l». 4) which proves (iii) . Finally, as remarked earlier, (iv) follows from the discussion in the introduction.
