Jiming Jiang is a Professor of Statistics at the University of California, Davis. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. He is the author of another Springer book, Linear and Generalized Linear Mixed Models and Their Applications (2007). Jiming Jiang is a prominent researcher in the fields of mixed effects models, small area estimation and model selection. Most of his research papers have involved large sample techniques. He is currently an Associate Editor of the Annals of Statistics.
From the reviews: "Each chapter is supplemented by a series of exercises. ... The book clearly helps the beginner to learn the foundations and techniques of large sample theory in statistics in part one, provides an outline of more advanced tools in part two and gives an impressions of the flavor of their applicability in part three. It is very suitable as a survey of and a guide to the addressed topics ... ." (Erich Haeusler, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2011 k) "Jiming Jiang's book on large sample techniques is a very welcome addition to the literature. Its strong points include the breadth of covered material, choice of relevant and interesting topics, lucid and attractive style of presentation, and sound pedagogical aspects. ... Along with its excellent coverage of the fundamentals in its initial chapters, the book addresses a number of important topics in the latter half as well. ... All in all, Large Sample Techniques in Statistics is an excellent book that I recommend whole-heartedly." (Moulinath Banerjee, Journal of the American Statistical Association, Vol. 106 (496), December, 2011) "A book on techniques for large samples in statistics is timely. ... Anyone with a background in ... mathematical statistics can benefit from the very thorough nature of the book. The author is systematic and detailed in the developing of each topic and utilizes examples and cases to illustrate the practical import of each concept. ... I found the book quite enlightening as the author again and again pointed out the confusions and misinterpretations that often arise in the context of common applications ... ." (Mark A. McComb, Technometrics, Vol. 54 (1), February, 2012)
