Handbook of Approximate Bayesian Computation 

Scott A. Sisson/ 9781439881507/ Price:¢G 100.00 



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 powerful statistical techniques, take Bayesian statistics beyond the need to specify overly simplified models, to the setting where the model is defined only as a process that generates data. This process can be arbitrarily complex, to the point where standard Bayesian techniques based on working with tractable likelihood functions would not be viable. ABC methods finesse the problem of model complexity within the Bayesian framework by exploiting modern computational power, thereby permitting approximate Bayesian analyses of models that would otherwise be impossible to implement.
The Handbook of ABC provides illuminating insight into the world of Bayesian modelling for intractable models for both experts and newcomers alike. It is an essential reference book for anyone interested in learning about and implementing ABC techniques to analyse complex models in the modern world.

Handbook of Graphical Models 

Marloes Maathuis/ 9781498788625/ Price:¢G 100.00 



A graphical model is a statistical model that is represented by a graph. The factorization properties underlying graphical models facilitate tractable computation with multivariate distributions, making the models a valuable tool with a plethora of applications. Furthermore, directed graphical models allow intuitive causal interpretations and have become a cornerstone for causal inference.
While there exist a number of excellent books on graphical models, the field has grown so much that individual authors can hardly cover its entire scope. Moreover, the field is interdisciplinary by nature. Through chapters by leading researchers from different areas, this handbook provides a broad and accessible overview of the state of the art.
Key features:
* Contributions by leading researchers from a range of disciplines
* Structured in five parts, covering foundations, computational aspects, statistical inference, causal inference, and applications
* Balanced coverage of concepts, theory, methods, examples, and applications
* Chapters can be read mostly independently, while crossreferences highlight connections
The handbook is targeted at a wide audience, including graduate students, applied researchers, and experts in graphical models.

Essentials of Statistics. 

Borres, Maria C. C./ 9781680945850/ Price:US$ 145.00 



In making predictions, Statistics uses the companion subject of Probability, which models chance mathematically and enables calculations of chance in complicated cases. Today, statistics has become an important tool in the work of many academic disciplines such as medicine, psychology, education, sociology, engineering and physics, just to name a few. Statistics is also important in many aspects of society such as business, industry and government. Because of the increasing use of statistics in so many areas of our lives, it has become very desirable to understand and practise statistical thinking. This is important even if you do not use statistical methods directly.

Probability: Theory and Examples. 

Borres, Maria C. C./ 9781680945874/ Price:US$ 145.00 



The probability of an event refers to the likelihood that the event will occur. Nearly every day you use probability to plan around the weather. Meteorologists can¡¦t predict exactly what the weather will be, so they use tools and instruments to determine the likelihood that it will rain, snow or hail. This book provides an introduction to probability that is both mathematical, in the sense that the underlying theory is developed from axioms, and practical, in the sense that applications to realworld problems are discussed. It is essential that we grasp the difference between theory and reality. Theories are ideas proposed to explain phenomena in the real world. As such they are approximations or models of reality.

Statistical Theory. 

/ 9781680955767/ Price:US$ 64.95 



The theory of statistics provides a basis for the whole range of techniques, in both study design and data analysis, that are used within applications of statistics. The theory covers approaches to statisticaldecision problems and to statistical inference, and the actions and deductions that satisfy the basic principles stated for these di erent approaches. Within a given approach, statistical theory gives ways of comparing statistical procedures; it can nd a best possible procedure within a given context for given statistical problems, or can provide guidance on the choice between alternative procedures. Statistical theory provides a guide to comparing methods of data collection, where the problem is to generate informative data using optimization and randomization while measuring and controlling for observational error.

Probablity Theory. 

Phillips, William A./ 9781682501047/ Price:US$ 170.00 



Probability theory, a branch of mathematics concerned with the analysis of random phenomena. The outcome of a random event cannot be determined before it occurs, but it may be any one of several possible outcomes. The actual outcome is considered to be determined by chance. As a mathematical foundation for statistics, probability theory is essential to many human activities that involve quantitative analysis of large sets of data. Methods of probability theory also apply to descriptions of complex systems given only partial knowledge of their state, as in statistical mechanics. This book is concerned with probability theory and all of its conventional mathematics in a wider context.

Descriptive Statistics. 

Aldous, David J./ 9781682501054/ Price:US$ 160.00 



Descriptive statistics refers the analysis of data that helps describe, show or summarize data in a meaningful way. Descriptive statistics do not, however, allow us to make conclusions beyond the data we have analyzed or reach conclusions regarding any hypotheses we might have made. They are simply a way to describe our data. Descriptive statistics are very important because if we simply presented our raw data it would be hard to visualize what the data was showing, especially if there was a lot of it. Descriptive statistics therefore enables us to present the data in a more meaningful way, which allows simpler interpretation of the data. This book allows common types of descriptive statistics and why they are important for understanding psychological research.

Elementary Stochastic Processes. 

Yoshida, Hiroaki/ 9781682501078/ Price:US$ 170.00 



In probability theory, a stochastic process, or often random process, is a collection of random variables, representing the evolution of some system of random values over time. This is the probabilistic counterpart to a deterministic process. Instead of describing a process which can only evolve in one way, in a stochastic or random process there is some indeterminacy: even if the initial condition is known, there are several directions in which the process may evolve. This book emphasis on the theory of stochastic processes in an elementary manner.

Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, 3Vols/Set. 

Salkind, N./ 9781412916110/ Price:¢G 340.00 



In fields as varying as education, politics and health care, assessment and the use of measurement and statistics have become an integral part of almost every activity undertaken. These activities require the organization of ideas, the generation of hypotheses, the collection of data and the interpretation, illustration and analysis of data.
No matter where we look, this critical analysis is more important than ever in an age where information  and lots of it  is readily available. The average consumer must know what a `median' is or what the connotations of the term `significant' are when intelligently reading The Times, Science News or a tabloid. Likewise, students, practitioners and researchers must grapple with sophisticated terms and techniques when conducting research, writing proposals and analyzing data. The terms themselves have proven to be anxietyprovoking.
The Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, in twovolumes, presents stateoftheart information and readytouse facts from the fields of measurement and statistics in a nonintimidating and accessible style. The Encyclopedia is specifically written to appeal to undergraduate students as well as practitioners, researchers and consumers of information.
Whilst there are reference works covering statistics and assessment in depth, none provide as comprehensive a resource in as focused and approachable a manner as this encyclopedia.

Questionnaires, 4Vols/Set. 

Bulmer, Martin/ 9780761971481/ Price:¢G 645.00 



Questionnaires are one of the principal research tools for discovering people's thoughts, experience, attitudes and orientations to future action. Social scientists and researchers have been using questionnaires systematically for about three quarters of a century, since market research, opinion polling and survey research became a feature in both US and UK society in the 1920s and 30s.
This unrivalled collection provides the most complete resource of material about questionnaires.
The first volume provides an introduction to the use of questionnaires. It examines the principles of question construction, considers different types of questionnaire, principles of social measurement and the relationship between expressed attitudes and actual social behaviour.
The second volume covers the main types of questionnaire and question construction. Included here is material on question order, question wording and response alternatives. The measurement of attitudes is examined.
The third volume focuses on how to handle sensitive questons, problems of validity, the extent to which researchers succeed in measuring what they want to measure, and the relationship between the tools which they use and the underlying theoretical constructs.
The fourth volume, on Surveys in the World, brings together the best material on memory and recall, truthtelling issues and how respondents comprehend basic questions. The advent of the computer programmed questionnaire is examined.
The collection represents a distillation of the world's best material on questions and questionnaires in social surveys.

Introduction Anova and Ancova: AGLM Approach. 

Rutherford, Andrew/ 9780761951605/ Price:¢G 102.00 



Traditional approaches to ANOVA and ANCOVA are now being replaced by a General Linear Modeling (GLM) approach. This book begins with a brief history of the separate development of ANOVA and regression analyses and demonstrates how both analysis forms are subsumed by the General Linear Model. A simple single independent factor ANOVA is analysed first in conventional terms and then again in GLM terms to illustrate the two approaches.
The text then goes on to cover the main designs, both independent and related ANOVA and ANCOVA, single and multifactor designs. The conventional statistical assumptions underlying ANOVA and ANCOVA are detailed and given expression in GLM terms.
Alternatives to traditional ANCOVA are also presented when circumstances in which certain assumptions have not been met. The book also covers other important issues in the use of these approaches such as power analysis, optimal experimental designs, normality violations and robust methods, error rate and multiple comparison procedures and the role of omnibus Ftests.

Examples are provided to illustrate the application of GLM to actual data and the author includes his web address where additional resources can be found. 


VA08172 
Multiple and Generalized Nonparametric Regression. 

Fox, John/ 9780761921899/ Price:¢G 16.99 



While regression analysis traces the dependence of the distribution of a response variable to see if it bears a particular (linear) relationship to one or more of the predictors, nonparametric regression analysis makes minimal assumptions about the form of relationship between the average response and the predictors. This makes nonparametric regression a more useful technique for analyzing data in which there are several predictors that may combine additively to influence the response. (An example could be something like birth order//gender//and temperament on achievement motivation).
Unfortunately, researchers have not had accessible information on nonparametric regression analysisuntil now. Beginning with presentation of nonparametric regression based on dividing the data into bins and averaging the response values in each bin, Fox introduces readers to the techniques of kernel estimation, additive nonparametric regression, and the ways nonparametric regression can be employed to select transformations of the data preceding a linear leastsquares fit. The book concludes with ways nonparametric regression can be generalized to logit, probit, and Poisson regression.

Introducing LISREL: A Guide for the Uninitiated. 

Diamantopoulos, Adamantios/ 9780761951704/ Price:¢G 111.00 



Emphasizing substantive issues rather than intricate statistical details, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to LISREL for structural equation modeling (SEM) using a nontechnical, useroriented approach that. The emphasis is on:
 exposing the reader to the major steps associated with the formulation and testing of a model under the LISREL framework
 describing the key decisions associated with each step
 highlighting potential problems and limitations associated with LISREL modeling
 assisting the interpretation of LISREL input and output files.
The overall aim is to provide a critical understanding of what is really involved in LISREL modeling and sensitize the reader against `mechanically' fitting or modifying models.
The entire range of decisions associated with the practical application of the LISREL program is covered in a userfriendly fashion. Concrete examples are used throughout to illustrate issues relating to model conceptualization, specification, identification, estimation, evaluation, modification, and crossvalidation and illustrated with actual program output.
The program is made much more accessible by adopting the more userfriendly SIMPLIS command language for preparing input files. Although primarily aimed at beginning users, readers are directed to further reading together with a comprehensive bibliography for the more advanced user.

Collected Works of Robert Giffen, The., 6Vols/Set 

/ 9781855063761/ Price:¢G 675.00 



Sir Robert Giffen (18371910) was a prolific writer on economic, financial and statistical subjects. His main contributions lie in his accurate measurement and prediction of such indicators as wage rates, economic growth, and national product. Primarily a statistician, his keen eye for the pitfalls of prediction enhanced the reputation and encouraged the study of statistics in this country.
Although he tried to avoid political partisanship he delivered a 'most powerful and damaging indictment' of the finances of Gladstone's Home Rule proposals. A strong individualist, Giffen viewed any infraction of the rule of laissezfaire with suspicion, but conceded that a slightr preference to colonial imports might be justified politically. He remains one of the true pioneers of applied economics in its modern sense.
