About The Author

S.C. Gupta (born 1937), has a brilliant academic record with Honours in Mathematics (1957) from Punjab University, postgraduation in Mathematical Statistics (1959) and Mathematics (1966), both from Delhi University, and M.S. in Statistics (1970-72) from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (U.S.A.). Mr. Gupta started his teaching career as a lecturer in the Department of Statistics, Meerut College, Meerut (July 1960 to March 1963) and then as Associate Lecturer in Statistics at I.T.T. Kharagpur (March 1963 to September 1963). He was an eminent and dedicated faculty member of Hindu College, University of Delhi, since September 1963 and retired as Associate Professor in Statistics in November 2002. Mr. Gupta was a `Visiting Scientist` at Clark Atlanta University, Atlanta GA (U.S.A.) from July 1 to August 31, 2002 under MSEIP Programme to work in a special project on "Introductory Statistics", partly funded by the U.S. Department of Education.

During his teaching career spanning over four decades, Mr. Gupta has taught numerous Statistics courses like Statistical Methodology, Theory of Probability, Probability Distributions, Applied Statistics, Sample Surveys and Sampling Techniques, Design of Experiments, Theory of Estimation and Testing of Hypohtesis, etc. at undergraduate (Honours) level. He has also been associated with postgraduate teaching at the Department of Statistics, University of Delhi for over 15 years. A well-established author of international repute, he has written books on Mathematical Statistics, Fundamentals of Statistics, Applied Statistics, Business Statistics, Engineering Mathematics and Matrices, which have been prescribed as textbooks in most of the Universities. Reading, writing and teaching are still his main passion.
