Contents 1. Type-distance of probability distribution pairs -- 2. Determinations of probability distribution types -- 3. Norms of deviations and residuals -- 4. Different characteristics for the dispersion of data -- 5. Asymptotic scatter characterising the accuracy of the determinations of the location parameter -- 6. Statistical efficiencies -- 7.

Summary After an introduction on the philosophy of most frequent value (MFV) procedure, chapters deal with different problems, such as type- distance of probability distribution pairs, determination of probability distribution types, norms of deviations and residuals, different characteristics for the dispersion of data, asymptotic scatter characterizing the accuracy of the determinations of the location parameter, statistical efficiencies, indices of robustness, resistance against outliers, generalized and robustified covariance and correlation matrix, and applications of modern optimum methods.
