Karl Pearson and the Scandinavian school of statistics

Guttorp, Peter and Lindgren, Georg LU (2009) In International Statistical Review 77(1). p.64-71
Abstract
The relationship between Karl Pearson and the Scandinavian statisticians was more of a competitive than a collaborative nature. We describe the leading statisticians and stochasticists of the Scandinavian school, and relate some of their work to the work of Pearson.
