This volume presents some of the most influential papers published by Rabi N. Bhattacharya, along with commentaries from international experts, demonstrating his knowledge, insight, and influence in the field of probability and its applications. For more than three decades, Bhattacharya has made significant contributions in areas ranging from theoretical statistics via analytical probability theory, Markov processes, and random dynamics to applied topics in statistics, economics, and geophysics. Selected reprints of Bhattacharya's papers are divided into three sections: Modes of Approximation, Large Times for Markov Processes, and Stochastic Foundations in Applied Sciences. The accompanying articles by the contributing authors not only help to position his work in the context of other achievements, but also provide a unique assessment of the state of their individual fields, both historically and for the next generation of researchers.
Rabi N. Bhattacharya: Selected Papers will be a valuable resource for young researchers entering the diverse areas of study to which Bhattacharya has contributed. Established researchers will also appreciate this work as an account of both past and present developments and challenges for the future.

"I enjoyed rereading some of the articles with interest and pleasure. This collection has some nice collection of statistical and related works and provides some historical perspectives of some of the important work in respective scientific fields produced by Bhattacharya. Surely, this volume will be of interest to researchers in probability and statistics with applications in diverse fields. Certainly, this volume is a one-stop shopping and contains wealth of information." (S. Ejaz Ahmed, Technometrics, Vol. 59 (4), November, 2017)
