About these proceedings

Introduction

The concept of conditional specification is not new. It is likely that earlier investigators in this area were deterred by computational difficulties encountered in the analysis of data following con­ ditionally specified models. Readily available computing power has swept away that roadblock. A broad spectrum of new flexible models may now be added to the researcher's tool box. This mono­ graph provides a preliminary guide to these models. Further development of inferential techniques, especially those involving concomitant variables, is clearly called for. We are grateful for invaluable assistance in the preparation of this monograph. In Riverside, Carole Arnold made needed changes in grammer and punctuation and Peggy Franklin miraculously transformed minute hieroglyphics into immaculate typescript. In Santander, Agustin Manrique ex­ pertly transformed rough sketches into clear diagrams. Finally, we thank the University of Cantabria for financial support which made possible Barry C. Arnold's enjoyable and productive visit to S- tander during the initial stages of the project. Barry C.
