Theodore Wilbur Anderson (June 5, 1918 – September 17, 2016) was an American mathematician and statistician who has specialized in the analysis of multivariate data.He was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He was on the faculty of Columbia University from 1946 until moving to Stanford University in 1967, becoming Emeritus Professor in 1988. He served as Editor of Annals of Mathematical Statistics from 1950 to 1952. He was elected President of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 1962.

  • Theodore (Ted) Wilbur Anderson (* 5. Juni 1918 in Minneapolis, Minnesota; † 17. September 2016 in Stanford, Kalifornien) war ein US-amerikanischer Mathematiker mit dem Schwerpunkt im Bereich Statistik und der Analyse von multivarianten Daten. Anderson war 1946 Guggenheim-Stipendiat und lehrte ab 1946 an der Columbia Universität, bis er 1967 an die Stanford Universität wechselte. Im Jahre 1988 emeritierte er. Er war der Herausgeber der Annals of Mathematical Statistics von 1950 bis 1952 und der Leiter des Institute of Mathematical Statistics im Jahre 1962. Bekannt geworden ist er durch den Anderson-Darling-Test, der überprüft, ob ein gegebener Satz von Daten mit einer vorgegebenen Wahrscheinlichkeitsverteilung übereinstimmt. Diesen hatte er zusammen mit Donald Allan Darling im Jahre 1952 erstmals beschrieben. Anderson war Mitglied der American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1974) und der Norwegischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. (de)

He served as Editor of Annals of Mathematical Statistics from 1950 to 1952. He was elected President of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics in 1962. Anderson's 1958 textbook, An Introduction to Multivariate Analysis, educated a generation of theorists and applied statisticians; it was "the classic" in the area until the book by Mardia, Kent and Bibby. Anderson's book emphasizes hypothesis testing via likelihood ratio tests and the properties of power functions: Admissibility, unbiasedness and monotonicity. Anderson is also known for Anderson–Darling test of whether there is evidence that a given sample of data did not arise from a given probability distribution. He also framed the Anderson–Bahadur algorithm along with Raghu Raj Bahadur which is used in statistics and engineering for solving binary classification problems when the underlying data have multivariate normal distributions with different covariance matrices.
