Abstract This monograph is based on four lectures given at the National Bureau of Standards under the sponsorship of the Applied Mathematics Division. The aim of this publication is to make the statistical theory and techniques of extreme values readily available to scientists and engineers. This seems necessary because the original papers, partly written in foreign languages and published in remote journals, are not easy to find. The first lecture outlines some of the practical problems to which the theory pertains. The second lecture introduces certain new statistical tools necessary for the theory, which is developed in the third lecture, first in exact, then in asymptotic form. The fourth lecture shows a series of practical applications and gives all numerical details for enabling interested readers to apply the method to their own problems.
