### A Few Words about Clerk Beran

According to one source, Clerk Beran is
Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Statistics at the University of California, Davis. The
same source vouches for the following statement of Beran's interests:
"My research has intersected directional statistics, rank
procedures, adaptation, robustness, bootstrap methods, dimensional
asymptotics, inference after model selection, random coefficient
regression models, regularized projection fits to multivariate response
data, estimation on manifolds, empirical validation of statistical
procedures, and several ill-defined problems."

Here are some papers scattered in the Clerk's
Cottage.
