The first issue of the new Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) Collections series has been published. Volume 1 in the series, Beyond Parametrics in Interdisciplinary Research: Festschrift in Honor of Professor Pranab K. Sen, is edited by N. Balakrishnan, Edsel Pena, and Mervyn J. Silvapulle. This volume covers “beyond parametrics” approaches which include nonparametrics, semi-parametrics, Bayes methods, and many others. The volume reviews some of the recent developments in this direction, focuses on some new methodologies and highlights their applications, and suggests some interesting open problems and possible new directions for further research. <p”> <p”>A number of authors were invited to contribute an article for this volume.
