In my student days in the 1950’s Statistics was a chore. It is only when I had some data of my own was it interesting. But it was the event of electronic calculators and later computers that got me interested again in Maths. The greater part of my professional career in Nuclear Medicine again stimulated an interest in both maths and the physical sciences. Latter, I became interested in heath effects of the radiation of populations. Especially, of interest to me was the debate, still on-going of the, ‘No Linear Threshold.’ I understand very useful from the point of view of setting regulatory standards. Useless from the point of view of predicting deaths from low level radiation. Of course, this was formulated prior to contemporary ideas of cell biology. To return to your lecture series, it is of great interest to me as to the definitions used in epidemiology. Thank you for a stimulating series
