DESCRIPTION:

Her book will thus appeal to professional statisticians as well as amateurs wanting to learn about a subject which permeates almost every aspect of modern life.. Jerzy Neyman received the National Medal of Science "for laying the foundations of modern statistics and devising tests and procedures that have become essential parts of the knowledge of every statistician." Until his death in 1981 at the age of 87, Neyman was vigorously involved in the concerns and controversies of the day, a scientist whose personality and activity were integral parts of his contribution to science. His career is thus particularly well-suited for the non-technical life-story which Constance Reid has made her own in such well-received biographies of Hilbert and Courant. She was able to talk extensively with Neyman and have access to his personal and professional letters and papers

"great carefully done biography" according to Michael R. Chernick. Constance Reid is a biographer who has specialized writing about the lives of mathematicians, statisticians and scientists. Besides Neyman's book she wrote one about Courant.Neyman had a very interesting life, from his early years in Europe where he grew up and did his fundamental work on mathematical statistics particularly the Neyman-Pearson theory fo hypothesis testing. Neyman met controversy head on as he like Karl Pearson before him had lively debates with Fisher as to what constitutes a test of significance. Neyman's approach w

Neyman was that rare combination, a man of extraordinary talent and also extraordinary temperament. From the Inside Flap "A wonderful, remarkable, beautiful productive life of science, full of excitement, yes, adventure, conflicts, stubborness, persistence, dedication, and brilliant success - the life of Jerzy Neyman That is the miracle of Constance Reid, who restores him to life, not a mirrored reflection, not a photograph but Jerzy Neyman himself -perhaps the last of the world-renowned statisticians, combining both mathematical and applied statistics." -- Leo A. Both talent and temperament are drawn beautifully in this fine biogra
