Editorial Reviews


"... this is an enormously rich and useful handbook representing well the state of art in this area. ... This handbook should be available in any institutional library, and it will be more than useful to both theorists and applied scientists."
Zentralblatt MATH 1282

"Zaven Karian and Edward Dudewicz, major authorities on the GLD, along with numerous colleagues have authored the most comprehensive reference on the theoretical and applied aspects of the GLD in conjunction with numerous ancillary topics. The Handbook is an exciting benchmark in the four-decade history of the GLD and outstanding anchor for state-of-the-practice. … Is the book recommended? Yes. The Handbook is a milestone on the GLD that should be embraced and have residence on the shelves of many practitioners, including myself. The typeset source code and included CD-ROM of software are valuable. The Handbook provides extensive real-world examples by the authors and numerous contributors pertaining to distributional analysis requiring the flexibility of the GLD. Therefore, the Handbook is also recommended for advanced data analysts."
The American Statistician, May 2014

"… reading through this book is certainly an enlightening experience―many different aspects of GLD modeling are shown and motivated (including the interesting potential for GLD mixture use in chromatographic spectra modelling). Interesting and idea-rich presentations of much more general approaches appear in various chapters …"
