An Introduction to the Theory of Statistics.
With 53 Figures and Diagrams.London: Charles Griffin and Company, Limited, 1911 Stock Code: 119912
First edition of the influential mathematician's work on statistics, the standard textbook for the subject and his most popular work. The book, which was part of Griffin's Scientific Series and by 1932 had run through ten editions, was developed from a series of lectures which Yule delivered as the Newmarch lecturer at University College, London between 1902 and 1909.
"Yule had great influence on the early development of modern statistics, particularly on experimentation in biology and agriculture, and analysis of vital and industrial statistics. His main contributions in the theoretical field were concerned with regression and correlation, with association, particularly in 2 x 2 contingency tables, with time-series, with Mendelian inheritance, and with epidemiology" (ODNB).
