Publisher Comments:

This text provides a thorough introduction to the statistical methods used in the experimental sciences and to the numerical methods used to implement them. Bridging the gap between statistical theory and practical problems, the treatment emphasizes concise but rigorous mathematics while retaining its focus on applications.After introducing probability and random variables, the book turns to the generation of random numbers (and application to Monte Carlo methods) and to important distributions (such as binomial, Poisson, and normal distributions). Subsequent chapters discuss statistical samples, the maximum likelihood method, and the testing of statistical hypothesis. The text concludes with a detailed discussion of several important statistical methods: least squares, minimization, analysis of variance, polynomial regression, and analysis of time series. Appendices present the necessary methods of matrix algebra and combinatorics as well as many useful formulae, algorithms, and computer routines. The reader is presumed to have a sound basic knowledge of differential and integral calculus and some knowledge of vectors and matrices.The richly illustrated text is intended for graduate students setting out on experimental research, but it should also provide a useful reference and programming guide for scientists and professionals. To guide the student, the text includes many worked-out examples as well as problems (many with hints or solutions). An accompanying cross-platform CD-ROM provides an extensive source program library (now in Java) to be used as a tool kit for the readers own applications, a graphics library (for Windows or Linux), and many sample programs (as source code and executable files).New in the Fourth Edition:- The chapter on statistical tests now also contains a section on tolerance limits, a concept of particular importance in industrial applications.- The chapter on least squares is extended. Special emphasis is given to examples with correlated measurement.- There are even more examples and problems with solutions then previously.- Included in the book is a CD-ROM containing two program libraries (data analysis and graphics) as well as many example programs and solutions to programming problems posed in the text. The programs are now presented in the platform independent and object oriented Java language. Many examples contain the widow-like user interfaces typical of Java. All programs are also given in Fortran and C as previously.

Review:

The book is concise, but gives a sufficiently rigorous mathematical treatment of practical statistical methods for data analysis. The content of the book is built up very clearly. The different subjects are nicely illustrated and the computer programs are a real support for the better understanding of the subjects treated. The book is both a textbook and a book of reference. It can be of great use to all who are involved with data analysis. -PHYSICALIA

Review:

Serves as a nice reference guide for any scientist interested in the fundamentals of data analysis on the computer. -THE AMERICAN STATISTICIAN"

Synopsis:

This richly illustrated reference provides a thorough introduction to the statistical methods used in the experimental sciences and to the numerical methods used to implement them. The accompanying CD-ROM provides an extensive program source library to be used as a toolkit for the reader's own applications, graphics library, and many sample programs. 273 illus.
