About this book

Useful survey of the field of pattern analysis which although founded in the mathematical sciences has much relevance for all biologists.

A dazzling 'tour de force' on patterns. It is a substantial, original contribution by a leader--indeed, originator--in the field, and has the potential for significant impact on the direction of future research. It includes a profoundly insightful treatise on patterns, their nature, and the role of randomness in generating and analyzing them. Examples range from language to weaving to cellular biology. Even non-statisticians and non-scientists reading this material will find their thoughts clarified and provoked.--'Alan F. Karr, National Institute of Statistical Sciences '
