Summary Barry Arnold has made fundamental contributions to many different areas of statistics, including distribution theory, Bayesian inference, multivariate analysis, bounds and orderings, and characterization problems. Organized to honor Arnold's significant contributions to the field, this volume is an outgrowth of the 'International Conference on Distribution Theory, Order Statistics, and Inference', held at the University of Cantabria, Santander, Spain. Several distinguished and active researchers highlight some of the recent developments in statistical distribution theory, order statistics and t
