Full of real-world case studies and practical advice, Exploratory Multivariate Analysis by Example Using R focuses on four fundamental methods of multivariate exploratory data analysis that are most suitable for applications. It covers principal component analysis (PCA) when variables are quantitative, correspondence analysis...

The cost of statistical computing software has precluded many universities from installing these valuable computational and analytical tools. R, a powerful open-source software package, was created in response to this issue. It has enjoyed explosive growth since its introduction, owing to its coherence, flexibility, and free availability....

This book grew out of my experience teaching MATLAB® and other computing languages to freshmen engineering students at Salt Lake Community College. I was frustrated by the lack of a text that “started at the beginning.” Although there were many comprehensive reference books, they assumed a level of both mathematical and...

"The book presents a welcome selection and careful exposition of material that can be (and is) covered in a single course...In this reviewer's opinion, this would be an interesting text to use with a group of advanced students well-grounded in undergraduate mathematics and computer science, and would produce a valuable course for the...

Support Vector Machines: Optimization Based Theory, Algorithms, and Extensions presents an accessible treatment of the two main components of support vector machines (SVMs)âclassification problems and regression problems. The book emphasizes the close connection between optimization theory and SVMs since optimization is...

If you’ve always wanted to learn how to program a computer, or to learn the widely used C++ programming language in particular, C++ Without Fear, Second Edition,offers...

This book is an introduction to modern ideas in cryptology and how to employ
these ideas. It includes the relevant material on number theory, probability, and
abstract algebra, in addition to descriptions of ideas about algorithms and com
plexity theory. Three somewhat different terms appear in the discussion of secure
communications...

Even bad code can function. But if code isn’t clean, it can bring a development organization to its knees. Every year, countless hours and significant resources are lost because of poorly written code. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Noted software expert Robert C. Martin presents a revolutionary paradigm with...

Inspired by the groundbreaking A History of the World in 100 Objects, this book draws on the unique collections of The Strong museum in Rochester, New York, to chronicle the evolution of video games, from Pong to first-person shooters, told through the stories of dozens of objects essential to the field’s creation and...

Since the publication of the bestselling first edition, many advances have been made in exploratory data analysis (EDA). Covering innovative approaches for dimensionality reduction, clustering, and visualization, Exploratory Data Analysis with MATLAB^{®}, Second Edition uses numerous examples and applications to...
