As the summer winds down, I’m very happy to report that we actually made measurable progress on our book project this summer!
I’ve been working on a book “The Fundamentals of Heavy Tails” for more years than I’d like to admit now, but progress has been very slow — especially since I became department chair. Well, this summer I finally managed to put aside a day a week for book writing and it paid off! We’ve completed drafts of two chapters and have two more that are nearly complete!
Many of the other chapters just require polishing too! So, hopefully, we’ll be able to continue to release chapters during the fall…
In the meantime, I’d love to get comments on the completed chapters, so please take a look and then write to me. You can download chapters here. (We ask that you fill out a form so that we can contact you with updates as we release more chapters and complete the book.)
