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
