  • Samuel Stanley Wilks (June 17, 1906 – March 7, 1964) was an American mathematician and academic who played an important role in the development of mathematical statistics, especially in regard to practical applications.Born in Little Elm, Texas and raised on a farm, Wilks was educated at the University of Iowa, where he acquired his Ph.D. under Everett F. Linquist; his thesis dealt with a problem of statistical measurement in education, and was published in the Journal of Educational Psychology. Wilks became an instructor in mathematics at Princeton University in 1933; in 1938 he assumed the editorship of the journal Annals of Mathematical Statistics in place of Harry C. Carver. Wilks assembled an advisory board for the journal that included major figures in statistics and probability, among them Ronald Fisher, Jerzy Neyman, and Egon Pearson.Wilks was named professor of mathematics and director of the Section of Mathematical Statistics at Princeton in 1944, and became chairman of the Division of Mathematics at the university in 1958. He was noted for his work on multivariate statistics. He also conducted work on unit-weighted regression, proving the idea that under a wide variety of common conditions, almost all set of weights will yield composites that are very highly correlated (Wilks, 1938), a result that has been dubbed Wilks's theorem (Ree, Carretta, & Earles, 1998).From the start of his career, Wilks favored a strong focus on practical applications for the increasingly abstract field of mathematical statistics; he also influenced other researchers, notably John Tukey, in a similar direction. Drawing upon the background of his thesis, Wilks worked with the Educational Testing Service in developing the standardized tests like the SAT that have had a profound effect on American education. He also worked with Walter Shewhart on statistical applications in quality control in manufacturing.During World War II he was a consultant with the Office of Naval Research. Both during and after the War he had a profound impact on the application of statistical methods to all aspects of military planning.Wilks died in 1964 in Princeton.The American Statistical Association named its Wilks Memorial Award in his honor.Wilks' lambda distribution is a probability distribution related to two independent Wishart distributed variables. It is important in multivariate statistics and likelihood-ratio tests.
  • Samuel Stanley Wilks (* 17. Juni 1906 in Little Elm, Texas; † 7. März 1964 in Princeton, New Jersey) war ein US-amerikanischer Statistiker.Wilks wuchs auf einer Farm auf und studierte am North Texas State Teachers College, wobei er sich vor allem für Architektur interessierte, unterrichtete kurz an Schulen und studierte nebenbei Mathematik an der University of Texas mit dem Bachelor-Abschluss. Er setzte sein Studium an der University of Iowa fort, wo er 1931 bei Henry Rietz (1875–1943) in Statistik promoviert wurde (On the distributions of statistics in samples from a normal population of two variables with matched sampling of one variable).1933 wurde er Instructor an der Princeton University, wo er den Rest seiner Karriere blieb und 1944 Professor wurde und Direktor der neu gegründeten Abteilung Mathematische Statistik. 1958 stand er der Mathematik-Fakultät vor. Seit 1938 war er Herausgeber der Annals of Mathematical Statistics. Er ist für Beiträge zur multivariaten Statistik und Regressionsanalyse (Unit-weighted regression 1938) bekannt. Er befasste sich nicht nur mit mathematischer Statistik, sondern legte Wert auf praktische Anwendungen und war an der Entwicklung von Eignungstests (SAT) für Schulen in den USA beteiligt und befasste sich mit Qualitätskontrolle in der Industrie. Im Zweiten Weltkrieg war er Berater des Office of Naval Research.Der Wilks Memorial Award der American Statistical Association ist ihm zu Ehren benannt.
