The UK nonlinear news state

The Royal Statistical Society (UK) has announced in the March 2007 issue of the RSS News that the Guy Medal in Silver 2007 is awarded to Professor Howell Tong for his many important contributions to time series analysis over a distinguished career, and in particular for his fundamental and highly influential paper "Threshold autoregression, limit cycles and cyclical data", read to the Society in 1980, which paved the way for a major body of work in non-linear time series modelling. Previous recipients of the medal, which was inaugurated in 1893, include Maurice Bartlett, George Box, David Cox, Henry Daniels, David Kendall, C. R. Rao, Bernard Silverman, Adrian Smith, Peter Whittle, and others.
