ORFE Professor Jianqing Fan published a new book titled “Statistical Foundations of Data Science” which aims at providing graduate students and researchers a comprehensive view on the modern statistical theory and methods for data science.
This book, co-authored with Runze Li, Cun-Hui Zhang and Hui Zou was 10 years in the making. Although a decade of work went into this book Prof. Fan is confident that finishing earlier would have led to rewriting the book today, “due to the rapid developments in statistical machine learning and data science.” Prof. Fan adds that the collaboration with the “celebrated researchers in the area make the book broader.”
