The shape-space l. k m whose points a represent the shapes of not totally degenerate /c-ads in IR m is introduced as a quotient space carrying the quotient metric. When m = 1, we find that Y\ = S k ~… Expand

Paul G. Hoel's “Introduction to Mathematical Statistics” seems to me to be an excellent work, and if only it can become generally available it may have a most favourable effect on the situation just described.Expand

This is a review of the current state of the "theory of shape" introduced by the author in 1977. It starts with a definition of "shape" for a set of k points in m dimensions. The first task is to… Expand

Kendall’s paper reviews a number of contributions to the stochastic theory of population. Besides the sections reproduced here and in chapter 7, they include birth, death and immigration processes;… Expand
