Astrostatistical demanding situations for the recent Astronomy offers a suite of monographs authored by way of a number of of the disciplines best astrostatisticians, i.e. by way of researchers from the fields of records and astronomy-astrophysics, who paintings within the statistical research of astronomical and cosmological facts. 8 of the 10 monographs are improvements of displays given by way of the authors as invited or certain themes in astrostatistics papers on the ISI international data Congress (2011, Dublin, Ireland). the outlet bankruptcy, through the editor, was once tailored from an invited seminar given at Los Alamos nationwide Laboratory (2011) at the heritage and present nation of the self-discipline; the second one bankruptcy by way of Thomas Loredo was once tailored from his invited presentation on the Statistical demanding situations in sleek Astronomy V convention (2011, Pennsylvania kingdom University), proposing insights relating to frequentist and Bayesian equipment of estimation in astrostatistical research. the remainder monographs are learn papers discussing quite a few subject matters in astrostatistics. The monographs give you the reader with an outstanding evaluation of the present kingdom astrostatistical study, and supply guidance as to topics of destiny learn. Lead authors for every bankruptcy respectively contain Joseph M. Hilbe (Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Arizona country Univ); Thomas J. Loredo (Dept of Astronomy, Cornell Univ); Stefano Andreon (INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, Italy); Martin Kunz ( Institute for Theoretical Physics, Univ of Geneva, Switz); Benjamin Wandel ( Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, Univ Pierre et Marie Curie, France); Roberto Trotta (Astrophysics staff, Dept of Physics, Imperial university London, UK); Phillip Gregory (Dept of Astronomy, Univ of British Columbia, Canada); Marc Henrion (Dept of arithmetic, Imperial collage, London, UK); Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay (Dept of information, Univ of Calcutta, India); Marisa March (Astrophysics crew, Dept of Physics, Imperial university, London, UK).
