Inference involves drawing conclusions about some general phenomenon from limited empirical observations in the face of random variability. Two central unifying components of statistics are the likelihood function and the exponential family. These are here brought together for the firsttime as the central themes of a book on statistical inference. This book is appropriate as an advanced undergraduate or graduate text in mathematical statistics.
J. K. Lindsey is at University of Liege.
