"The methods described in the book shed light on extremely important issues in astrophysics, cosmology, and fundamental physics. Most of the results of the book were first proved by the authors. Rigourous mathematical proofs of other results appear here for the first time in a monograph form. ...the material is very accessible, both technically interesting and a pleasure to read. The presentation is very clear. The book is a must for mathematicians and for graduate and postgraduate students who would like to work in the area of statistical analysis of cosmological data." Anatoliy Malyarenko, Mathematical Reviews
