This volume originates from the collaboration of high-level specialists: Christophe Biernacki (Université de Lille I), Jean-Michel Marin (Université de Montpellier), Pascal Massart (Université de Paris-Sud), Cathy Maugis-Rabusseau (INSA de Toulouse), Mathilde Mougeot (Université Paris Diderot), and Nicolas Vayatis (École Normale Supérieure de Cachan) who were all speakers at the 16th biennal workshop on advanced statistics organized by the French Statistical Society. In this book, the reader will find a synthesis of the methodologies’ foundations and of recent work and applications in various fields.
