BarnettWritten by a physicist, Statistics is tailored to the needs ofphysical scientists, containing and explaining all they need toknow. It concentrates on parameter estimation, especially themethods of Least Squares and Maximum Likelihood, but othertechniques, such as hypothesis testing, Bayesian statistics andnon-parametric methods are also included. Intended for reasonablynumerate scientists it contains all the basic formulae, theirderivations and applications, together with some more advancedones. Statistics features: * Comprehensive coverage of the essential techniques physicalscientists are likely to need. * A wealth of examples, and problems with their answers. * Flexible structure and organisation allows it to be used as acourse text and a reference. * A review of the basics, so that little prior knowledge isrequired.

This book is about helping you to choose and use the right statistical technique to analyze your data and write about your results and findings convincingly. It provides a guide to the essential statistical skills needed for success in your assignment, project or dissertation. Berman Brown and Saunders concentrate on particular statistical tests and their three Ws--what, why, and when. They provide you with the tools to choose the graphs and statistics that are suitable for your data, and to understand what the statistical results actually mean. In addition, the book explains why it is impossible to avoid using statistics in analysing data; describes the language of statistics to make it easier to understand the various terms used for statistical techniques; deals with using tables and charts to present data so that they are easy to understand; and explains the statistics used to describe data used to inferdifferences and relationships. The book also includes a handy alphabet of statistics as well as a glossary of key statistical terms. --From publisher's description.

Mathematical Methods of Statistics

Author: Harald Cramér

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 9780691005478

Category: Mathematics

Page: 575

View: 7057

In this classic of statistical mathematical theory, Harald Cramér joins the two major lines of development in the field: while British and American statisticians were developing the science of statistical inference, French and Russian probabilitists transformed the classical calculus of probability into a rigorous and pure mathematical theory. The result of Cramér's work is a masterly exposition of the mathematical methods of modern statistics that set the standard that others have since sought to follow. For anyone with a working knowledge of undergraduate mathematics the book is self contained. The first part is an introduction to the fundamental concept of a distribution and of integration with respect to a distribution. The second part contains the general theory of random variables and probability distributions while the third is devoted to the theory of sampling, statistical estimation, and tests of significance.

Traditional texts in mathematical statistics can seem - to some readers-heavily weighted with optimality theory of the various flavors developed in the 1940s and50s, and not particularly relevant to statistical practice. Mathematical Statistics stands apart from these treatments. While mathematically rigorous, its focus is on providing a set of useful tools that allow students to understand the theoretical underpinnings of statistical methodology. The author concentrates on inferential procedures within the framework of parametric models, but - acknowledging that models are often incorrectly specified - he also views estimation from a non-parametric perspective. Overall, Mathematical Statistics places greater emphasis on frequentist methodology than on Bayesian, but claims no particular superiority for that approach. It does emphasize, however, the utility of statistical and mathematical software packages, and includes several sections addressing computational issues. The result reaches beyond "nice" mathematics to provide a balanced, practical text that brings life and relevance to a subject so often perceived as irrelevant and dry.

This book has successfully taught introductory statistics to non-mathematicians who had previously failed two semester of statistics or had completed the courses with no idea of what they had done. It uses a statistical decision model that is easy to understand and apply. Each chapter leads the student through one stats test using Minitab. The book helps the student understand which stat to use and what the results mean to a business person.

What is most valuable about this book is the very high quality of the model solutions It is a problem book for those teaching or learning a first course in mathematical statistics This one is outstandingly good and highly recommended.Goeff CohenUniversity of Edinburgh, ScotlandThe authors of this useful book take the view that the ability to solve practical problems is fundamental to an understanding of statistical techniques The book is designed to be read alongside a standard text. I expect it is likely to be most useful to the teacher or to the able student forced to work largely alone.David GreenThis book not only provides a solution to each problem set but gives notes about that solution. These notes should help students to understand the reasoning behind the techniques used, so giving them confidence to deal with problems of a similar nature This book should prove a valuable addition to the library of students and teachers of statistics.M J G AnsellHatfield PolytechnicThe book consists of aseries of examples, each followed by one or more alternative solutions and accompanying notes. The solutions themselves are useful models. The notes go one stage further and explain why particular techniques were chosen to solve each problem. This approach may help to overcome the common difficulty of deciding which method to choose when answering examination questions The book is easy to read and suitable for individual study.Richard J FieldThese notes provide fascinating insights into the process that experienced statisticians go through in order to solve a problem. Students (and maybe some instructors) will benefit greatly from going through the solutions and the notes in thisbook.Gudmund R IversenSwarthmore CollegeThe approach of the authors is to improve a students understanding of statistics, and to help students appreciate which techniques might be appropriate for any problem.Zentralblatt Math., 2001
