The death of Professor K. C. Sreedharan Pillai on June 5, 1985 was a heavy loss to many statisticians all around the world. This volume is dedicated to his memory in recog- nition of his many contributions in multivariate statis- tical analysis. It brings together eminent statisticians Working in multivariate analysis from around the world. The research and expository papers cover a cross-section of recent developments in the field. This volume is especially useful to researchers and to those who want to keep abreast of the latest directions in multivariate statistical analysis. I am grateful to the authors from so many different countries and research institutions who contributed to this volume. I wish to express my appreciation to all those who have reviewed the papers. The list of people include Professors T. C. Chang, So-Hsiang Chou, Dipak K. Dey, Peter Hall, Yu-Sheng Hsu, J. D. Knoke, W. J. Krzanowski, Edsel Pena, Bimal K. Sinha, Dennis L. Young, Drs. K. Krishnamoorthy, D. K. Nagar, and Messrs. Alphonse Amey, Chi-Chin Chao and Samuel Ofori-Nyarko. I wish to thank Professors Shanti S. Gupta and James 0. Berger for their keen interest and encouragement.
Thanks are also due to Cynthia Patterson for her help and Reidel Publishing Com~any for their cooperation in bringing this volume out.
