520    In many ways, estimation by an appropriate minimum 
       distance method is one of the most natural ideas in 
       statistics. However, there are many different ways of 
       constructing an appropriate distance between the data and 
       the model: the scope of study referred to by "Minimum 
       Distance Estimation" is literally huge. Filling a 
       statistical resource gap, Statistical Inference: The 
       Minimum Distance Approach comprehensively overviews 
       developments in density-based minimum distance inference 
       for independently and identically distributed data. 
       Extensions to other more complex models are also 
       discussed. Comprehensively covering the basics and 
       applications of minimum distance inference, this book 
       introduces and discusses: The estimation and hypothesis 
       testing problems for both discrete and continuous models 
       The robustness properties and the structural geometry of 
       the minimum distance methods The inlier problem and its 
       possible solutions, and the weighted likelihood estimation
       problem The extension of the minimum distance methodology 
       in interdisciplinary areas, such as neural networks and 
       fuzzy sets, as well as specialized models and problems, 
       including semi-parametric problems, mixture models, 
       grouped data problems, and survival analysis. Statistical 
       Inference: The Minimum Distance Approach gives a thorough 
       account of density-based minimum distance methods and 
       their use in statistical inference. It covers statistical 
       distances, density-based minimum distance methods, 
       discrete and continuous models, asymptotic distributions, 
       robustness, computational issues, residual adjustment 
       functions, graphical descriptions of robustness, penalized
       and combined distances, weighted likelihood, and 
       multinomial goodness-of-fit tests. This carefully crafted 
       resource is useful to researchers and scientists within 
       and outside the statistics arena
