The present book, Data Analysis Using SAS Enterprise Guide, provides readers with an overview of Enterprise Guide, the newest point-and-click interface from SAS. SAS Enterprise Guide is a graphical user (point-and-click) interface to the main SAS application, having relatively recently replaced the Analyst interface, which itself had replaced...

S+Functional Data Analysis is the first commercial object oriented package for exploring, modeling, and analyzing functional data. Functional data analysis (FDA) handles longitudinal data and treats each observation as a function of time (or other variable). The functions are related. The goal is to analyze a sample of functions instead of a...

In the early days of pattern recognition and statistical data analysis life was
rather simple: datasets were relatively small, collected from well-designed experiments,
analyzed using a few methods that had good theoretical background.
Explosive growth of the use of computers led to the creation of huge amounts of
data of all kinds,...

Complete with examples from the chemical and pharmaceutical laboratory and manufacturing areas, this thoroughly updated book clearly...

Investment and risk management problems are fundamental problems for financial institutions and involve both speculative and hedging decisions. A structured approach to these problems naturally leads one to the field of applied mathematics in order to translate subjective probability beliefs and attitudes towards risk and reward into...

With over 110 practical recipes, this is the ideal book for all statisticians who want to explore the vast capabilities of Minitab to organize data, analyze it, and visualize it with impactful graphs.

Overview

Gain an in-depth understanding of data formatting in Minitab

Classical statistical techniques fail to cope well with deviations from a standard distribution. Robust statistical methods take into account these deviations while estimating the parameters of parametric models, thus increasing the accuracy of the inference. Research into robust methods is flourishing, with new methods being developed and...

R is a high-level language and an environment for data analysis and graphics. The design of R was heavily influenced by two existing languages: Becker, Chambers and Wilks’ S and Sussman’s Scheme. The resulting language is very similar in appearance to S, but the underlying implementation and semantics are derived from Scheme. This...
