A Practical Guide to Scientific Data Analysis

by

A Practical Guide to Scientific Data Analysis Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by the author's need for practical guidance in the processes of data analysis, A Practical Guide to Scientific Data Analysis has been written as a statistical companion for the working scientist. This handbook of data analysis with worked examples focuses on the application of mathematical and statistical techniques and the interpretation of their results.

Covering the most common statistical methods for examining and exploring relationships in data, the text includes extensive examples from a variety of scientific disciplines.

The chapters are organised logically, from planning an experiment, through examining and displaying the data, to constructing quantitative models. Each chapter is intended to stand alone so that casual users can refer to the section that is most appropriate to their problem.

Written by a highly qualified and internationally respected author this text:

  • Presents statistics for the non-statistician
  • Explains a variety of methods to extract information from data
  • Describes the application of statistical methods to the design of “performance chemicals”
  • Emphasises the application of statistical techniques and the interpretation of their results

Of practical use to chemists, biochemists, pharmacists, biologists and researchers from many other scientific disciplines in both industry and academia.

Book News Annotation:

For scientists with little statistics background, such as chemists, biochemists, pharmacists, and biologists, Livingstone (U. of Portsmouth, UK) provides a guide to scientific data analysis that focuses on the application of mathematical and statistical techniques and the interpretation of their results. He covers the most common multivariate statistical methods for examining and exploring relationships in data, with many examples from different scientific disciplines, including the design of foods, drugs, and cosmetics, and chapters covering aspects from planning an experiment, to examining and displaying data, to constructing quantitative models. Discussion of theory is minimized. Elementary knowledge of statistics is assumed. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A practical handbook aimed at the working scientist, it covers the application of statistical and mathematical methods to the design of performance chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, fragrances, flavours and paints. This volume will have wide appeal, not only to chemists, but biochemists, pharmacists and other researchers within the field of statistical analysis of experimental results. The first book in this field to address this topic The statistics book for the non-statistician Highly qualified and internationally respected author

Synopsis:

“This book is a guide to the wide range of methods available. Not surprisingly given the author’s background, the examples in the book are all chemical and hence it will be of most interest and value to chemistry researchers.” (Chemistry World, May 2010)
