Probability and mathematical genetics : [papers in honour of Sir John Kingman] [EBook] / edited by N.H. Bingham, C.M. Goldie.
Focussing on the work of Sir John Kingman, one of the world's leading researchers in probability and mathematical genetics, this book touches on the important areas of these subjects in the last 50 years. Leading authorities give a unique insight into a wide range of currently topical problems....
