520    Focussing on the work of Sir John Kingman, one of the 
       world's leading researchers in probability and 
       mathematical genetics, this book touches on the important 
       areas of these subjects in the last 50 years. Leading 
       authorities give a unique insight into a wide range of 
       currently topical problems. Papers in probability 
       concentrate on combinatorial and structural aspects, in 
       particular exchangeability and regeneration. The Kingman 
       coalescent links probability with mathematical genetics 
       and is fundamental to the study of the latter. This has 
       implications across the whole of genomic modelling 
       including the Human Genome Project. Other papers in 
       mathematical population genetics range from statistical 
       aspects including heterogeneous clustering, to the 
       assessment of molecular variability in cancer genomes. 
       Further papers in statistics are concerned with empirical 
       deconvolution, perfect simulation, and wavelets. This book
       will be warmly received by established experts as well as 
       their students and others interested in the content
