Professor C. R. Rao has continued his productive research career through his tenth decade, and now begins the eleventh. A celebration of his 100th birthday is
completely appropriate. There has been no difficulty in encountering individuals
enthusiastic about contributing to this felicitation volume. That it will appear in time for Prof. Rao’s 101st birthday is a consequence of the care invested in preparing suitable contributions by the many scholars whose lives have been directly or indirectly influenced by him and his many contributions to Statistics and related fields. We, the editors, consider it an honor to have been able to contribute to the organization and development of this tribute volume. If ever there was a statistician who needs no introduction, it is C. R. Rao. This is true even though many students may wonder if his first name is Cramer, or perhaps that his last name might be Blackwell. Be that as it may, they definitely know and respect (as we do) Prof. Rao and his many accomplishments!
We present this volume to Prof. Rao with our best wishes for a continued
productive and enjoyable life.
We wish to take this opportunity to thank all those who have contributed papers
to this volume. In addition, we express our sincere gratitude to the scholars who
provided refereeing services. Their constructive commentaries were, in most cases,
much appreciated by the authors.
We also wish to thank our Springer editor, Ms. Veronika Rosteck, who has
patiently helped us by guiding us through the necessary steps to bring this project to
