Exploring Multivariate Data with the Forward Search (Springer Series in Statistics)by A. C. Atkinson
Synopses & Reviews
The forward search provides a method of revealing the structure of data through a mixture of model fitting and informative plots. The continuous multivariate data that are the subject of this book are often analyzed as if they come from one or more normal distributions. Such analyses, including the need for transformation, may be distorted by the presence of unidentified subsets and outliers, both individual and clustered. These important features are disguised by the standard procedures of multivariate analysis. The book introduces methods that reveal the effect of each observation on fitted models and inferences. The powerful methods of data analysis will be of importance to scientists and statisticians. Although the emphasis is on the analysis of data, theoretical developments make the book suitable for a graduate statistical course on multivariate analysis. Topics covered include principal components analysis, discriminant analysis, cluster analysis and the analysis of spatial data. S-Plus programs for the forward search are available on a web site. This book is a companion to Atkinson and Riani's Robust Diagnostic Regression Analysis of which the reviewer for The Journal of the Royal Statistical Society wrote "I read this book, compulsive reading such as it was, in three sittings." Anthony Atkinson is Emeritus Professor of Statistics at the London School of Economics. He is also the author of Plots, Transformations, and Regression and coauthor of Optimum Experimental Designs. Professor Atkinson has served as Editor of The Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B.
This book is concerned with data in which the observations are independent and in which the response is multivariate. Companion book to Robust Diagnostic Regression Analysis (ISBN 0-387-95017) published by Springer in 2000.
This book is concerned with data in which the observations are independent and in which the response is multivariate. Anthony Atkinson has been Professor of Statistics at the London School of Economics since 1989. Before that he was a Professor at Imperial College, London. He is the author of Plots, Transformations, and Regression, co-author of Optimum Experimental Designs, and joint editor of The Fascination of Statistics, a volume celebrating the centenary of the International Statistical Institute. Professor Atkinson has served as editor of The Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B and as associate editor of Biometrika and Technometrics. He has published well over 100 articles in these and other journals including The Annals of Statistics, Biometrics, The Journal of the American Statistical Association, and Statistics and Computing. Marco Riani, after receiving his Ph.D. in Statistics in 1995 from the University of Florence, joined the Faculty of Economics at Parma University as postdoctoral fellow. In 1997 he won the prize for the best Italian Ph.D. thesis in Statistics. He is currently Associate Professor of Statistics in the University of Parma. He has published in Technometrics, The Journal of Computational and Graphical Statistics, The Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, The Journal of Forecasting, Environmetrics, Computational Statistics and Data Analysis, Metron, and other journals.
