Presents articles on applications of modern statistical classification in signal processing, banking, and marketing. Specific topics include ranking by pairwise comparisons with special reference to ordering portfolios, new uses of statistics in retail banking, symptotic properties of least squares estimators for the parameters in undamped exponential signals, and a reduced game property for the proportional solution for claims problems. Other subjects are non-null distributions of the Wald's criteria in random effects growth curve models, selecting the component with maximal difference of two multinormal means, and the risk process as a linear premium control model. This work lacks a subject index.
