The book provides a generalization of Gaussian error intervals ti situations where the data follow non-Gaussian distributions. This usually occurs in frontier science, where the observed parameter is just above background or the histogram of multiparametric data contains empty bins. Then the validity of a theory cannot be decided by the chi-squared-criterion, but this long-
