The Memorial Sessions in Honor of Professor Moshe Shaked

Moshe Shaked (1945-2014) was a world leader in stochastic orders and distribution theory. His book on stochastic orders, coauthored with George Shanthikumar, has been very influential for people who study and use comparison methods in their research and teaching in probability, statistics, operation research, management science, economics, risk analysis, and various other fields.
