My scientific work has essentially dealt with statistics in human
sciences - mainly psychology and social sciences - from the viewpoint of statistics for researchers.
The site is conceived in the manner of a dissertation report, aiming to provide an
introduction to this
work, for researchers using statistical methods,
also for mathematicians
interested in applications. The background of the ideal-typical reader
of this Website is a scientific highschool level, together with some practice of
elementary statistical methods. No prerequisite in
statistics” is necessary.
In the heading Travaux Statistiques (“Statistical Works”) , each unit is devoted
to a topic, with a guide of
publications, with complementary subunits and relevant
Notes de Lecture (“Reading Notes”). As the case may be, "upstream" modules ( i.e. those which give
access to the module) are specified, as well as "downstream"
ones (i.e. those to which it gives
In the heading “Personalia”, one will find, in
addition to CV and Scientific trajectory, the subheading Loisirs (“Leisure”) , with
Feuilles et Bons Mots (“Good Pages and Witty remarks”), that do not belong to my scientific work,
but may illuminate its context and spirit.

was undertaken in the spring of 2004 with the assistance of Thierry
Cabanal-Duvillard, Lecturer in Paris 5. The current presentation is due
to Mohamed Sidir, Lecturer at the University of Picardy. My thanks
