Viens Attains Uncommon "Annals Quadfecta" Status
Michigan State University statistician Frederi Viens is one of a select group of 23 scholars worldwide who have achieved what has been dubbed the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) Annals quadfecta.
The IMS is one of the main professional organizations for statisticians. It also covers probability theory and applied probability, two mathematical fields at the foundation of statistics. The institute publishes four flagship "Annals" research journals, considered to be top periodicals in each of their respective subfields: the Annals of Probability, the Annals of Statistics, the Annals of Applied Probability, and the Annals of Applied Statistics.
A recent IMS Bulletin article explains how this inaugural list of 23 scholars was defined and measured.
