Bernoulli Society News July 2014 

  • New Publications Committee Chair: The present Bernoulli Society Publications Committee (PubCom) Chair Professor Eulalia Vares has to step down early, because she is to become Chief Editor of Annals of Probability at the start of 2015 - a very high honour. Her successor from (1st October 2014) will be Professor Thomas Mikosch. The business of Bernoulli PubCom is extensive, and key to the operations of Bernoulli Society; we are very grateful to both for their willing and able service.
