The versatile capabilities and large set of add-on packages make R an excellent alternative to many existing and often expensive data mining tools. Exploring this area from the perspective of a practitioner, Data Mining with R: Learning with Case Studies uses practical examples to illustrate the power of R and data...

What you hold in your hand or—this is the 21st century—view on screen
shouldn’t exist.

Let me explain. Mathematics is often taught by presenting students with a
broad concept, like linear independence, and then a set of tools for identifying,
using, or creating it. More rigorous courses might...

As the world becomes increasingly complex, so do the statistical models required to analyse the challenging problems ahead. For the very first time in a single volume, the Handbook of Approximate Bayesian Computation (ABC) presents an extensive overview of the theory, practice and application of ABC methods. These simple, but...
