Astrostatistical Challenges for the New Astronomy presents a collection of monographs authored by several of the disciplines leading astrostatisticians, i.e. by researchers from the fields of statistics and astronomy-astrophysics, who work in the statistical analysis of astronomical and cosmological data. Eight of the ten monographs are enhancements of presentations given by the authors as invited or special topics in astrostatistics papers at the ISI World Statistics Congress (2011, Dublin, Ireland). The opening chapter, by the editor, was adapted from an invited seminar given at Los Alamos National Laboratory (2011) on the history and current state of the discipline; the second chapter by Thomas Loredo was adapted from his invited presentation at the Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy V conference (2011, Pennsylvania State University), presenting insights regarding frequentist and Bayesian methods of estimation in astrostatistical analysis. The remaining monographs are research papers discussing various topics in astrostatistics. The monographs provide the reader with an excellent overview of the current state astrostatistical research, and offer guidelines as to subjects of future research. Lead authors for each chapter respectively include Joseph M. Hilbe (Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Arizona State Univ); Thomas J. Loredo (Dept of Astronomy, Cornell Univ); Stefano Andreon (INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, Italy); Martin Kunz ( Institute for Theoretical Physics, Univ of Geneva, Switz); Benjamin Wandel ( Institut d'Astrophysique de Paris, Univ Pierre et Marie Curie, France); Roberto Trotta (Astrophysics Group, Dept of Physics, Imperial College London, UK); Phillip Gregory (Dept of Astronomy, Univ of British Columbia, Canada); Marc Henrion (Dept of Mathematics, Imperial College, London, UK); Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay (Dept of Statistics, Univ of Calcutta, India); Marisa March (Astrophysics Group, Dept of Physics, Imperial College, London, UK).


《新天文學的天文統計挑戰》是一本由幾位領先的天文統計學家撰寫的專著集,這些學者來自統計學和天文天體物理學領域,從事天文和宇宙學數據的統計分析。其中八篇專著是作者在國際統計學會世界統計大會(2011年,愛爾蘭都柏林)上作為邀請或特別主題在天文統計學論文中發表的內容的擴展。第一章由編者撰寫,改編自他在洛斯阿拉莫斯國家實驗室(2011年)的邀請研討會上關於該學科的歷史和現狀的演講;第二章由Thomas Loredo撰寫,改編自他在現代天文學中的統計挑戰V會議(2011年,賓夕法尼亞州立大學)上的邀請演講,介紹了天文統計分析中頻率論和貝葉斯方法的估計。其餘的專著是關於天文統計學的各種主題的研究論文。這些專著為讀者提供了對當前天文統計研究的優秀概述,並提供了未來研究主題的指南。各章的主要作者分別包括Joseph M. Hilbe(喷气推进实验室和亚利桑那州立大学);Thomas J. Loredo(康奈尔大学天文学系);Stefano Andreon(意大利布雷拉天文台);Martin Kunz(日内瓦大学理论物理研究所);Benjamin Wandel(巴黎天体物理研究所);Roberto Trotta(伦敦帝国理工学院天体物理学组);Phillip Gregory(英属哥伦比亚大学天文学系);Marc Henrion(伦敦帝国理工学院数学系);Asis Kumar Chattopadhyay(加尔各答大学统计学系);Marisa March(伦敦帝国理工学院天体物理学组)。
