520    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. Awkwardly translated from Hungarian. No index.
