The collected works of John W. Tukey. Volume I: Time series: 1949-1964. Volume II: Time series: 1965-1984. Ed. by David R. Brillinger. (English) Zbl 0699.62084

The Collected Works are meant to be more than a collection for the record or for future historians to sort out scientific movements. They can be used right now by researchers, by data analysts, and by students. To help readers, The Collected Works have been divided into subjects with an editor for each. The editors have selected just enough papers to convey the philosophies and methodologies of Tukey and have provided comments to guide readers through the writings. Many of John Tukey’s writings, including some of his most influential work, have never appeared before in published form. These volumes give the scientific and technological community easy access to this important material. (From the preface)
