Statistics and probability are important domains in the scientific world, having many applications in various fields, such as engineering, reliability, medicine, biology, economics, physics, and not only, probability laws providing an estimated image of the world we live in. This Special Volume deals targets some certain directions of the two domains as described below.
Some applications of statistics are clustering of random variables based on simulated and real data or scan statistics, the latter being introduced in 1963 by Joseph Naus. In reliability theory, some important statistical tools are hazard rate and survival functions, order statistics, and stochastic orders. In physics, the concept of entropy is at its core, while special statistics were introduced and developed, such as statistical mechanics and Tsallis statistics.
~In economics, statistics, mathematics, and economics formed a particular domain called econometrics. ARMA models, linear regressions, income analysis, and stochastic processes are discussed and analyzed in the context of real economic processes. Other important tools are Lorenz curves and broken stick models.
~Theoretical results such as modeling of discretization of random variables and estimation of parameters of new and old statistical models are welcome, some important probability laws being heavy-tailed distributions. In recent years, many distributions along with their properties have been introduced in order to better fit the growing data available.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of articles that reflect the importance of statistics and probability in applied scientific domains. Papers providing theoretical methodologies and applications in statistics are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Mathematics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
