Erich Lehmann’s Contributions to Orderings of Probability Distributions
Part of the Selected Works in Probability and Statistics book series (SWPS)
The initial contributions to the theory of comparison of experiments appeared in the late forties/early fifities (see, e.g., Bohnenblust, Shapley, and Sherman, 1949; Stein, 1951; Blackwell, 1951, 1953).

These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
