The book aims to present a wide range of the newest results on multivariate statistical models, distribution theory and applications of multivariate statistical methods. A paper on Pearson-Kotz-Dirichlet distributions by Professor N Balakrishnan contains main results of the Samuel Kotz Memorial Lecture. Extensions of linear models to multivariate exponential dispersion models and Growth Curve models are presented, and several papers on classification methods are included. Applications range from insurance mathematics to medical and industrial statistics and sampling algorithms.
