Includes bibliographical references (p. 259-264) and index.
TOC Prologue on probability; the concept of likelihood; support; Bayes' theorem and inverse probability; maximum support - the method of maximum likelihood; the method of support for several paramters; expected information and the distribution of evaluates; application in anomalous cases; support tests; miscellaneous topics. Appendices: a problem in the doctrine of chances; the history of likelihood; fiducial distributions; the likelihood treatment of linear regression; R.A. Fisher's work on statistical inference.
Assuming only a basic knowledge of probability theory, the author sets out to reconstruct a consistent theory of statistical inference in science. Using a likelihood approach, he explores estimation, tests of significance, randomization, experimental design and other statistical topics.
