His extensive research activities abroad included important projects in Waterloo, Vienna, Dundee (Scotland), Sidney, China, Kiev. During the more than 40 years of his academic work he has published outstanding, original articles on econometrics and statistics.

His book Entscheidungskriterien bei Risiko, published in 1967, is an excellent starting for anyone looking for an introduction to the complex iSsues involved.
