More mathematical people : contemporary conversations by Donald J Albers( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the tradition of the first volume of Mathematical People comes another collection of interviews and profiles with some of the most prestigious mathematicians of our time. The chapters tell in the mathematicians' own words how they became interested in mathematics, how they chose their speciality, and about their hobbies and personal lives. Each interview has its own colorful character and is full of photographs so personal and lively that they add a new dimension to the reader's perception. -- from dust jacket

Fundamentals of exploratory analysis of variance by David C Hoaglin( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The analysis of variance is presented as an exploratory component of data analysis, while retaining the customary least squares fitting methods. Balanced data layouts are used to reveal key ideas and techniques for exploration. The approach emphasizes both the individual observations and the separate parts that the analysis produces. Most chapters include exercises and the appendices give selected percentage points of the Gaussian, t, F chi-squared and studentized range distributions"--Publisher's website
Statistics as principled argument by Robert P Abelson( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author delves into the too-often-dismissed problems of interpreting quantitative data and then presenting them in the context of a coherent story about one's research ... The focus of the book is that the purpose of statistics is to organize a useful argument from quantitative evidence, using a form of principled rhetoric. Five criteria, described by the acronym MAGIC (magnitude, articulation, generality, interestingness, and credibility) are proposed as crucial features of a persuasive, principled argument. Particular statistical methods are discussed, with minimum use of formulas and heavy data sets. The ideas throughout the book revolve around elementary probability theory, t tests, and simple issues of research design. It is therefore assumed that the reader has already had some access to elementary statistics. Many examples are included to explain the connection of statistics to substantive claims about real phenomena

Stochastic models for learning by Robert R Bush( Book )

1 edition published in 1955 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of this book is to contribute to the study of learning--one of the many fields of psychology. A possible probabilistic framework or model for analyzing data from a variety of experiments on animal and human learning is presented. This model is described in general terms and is applied to a number of experiments. The stress is on the viewpoint that learning is probabilistic or stochastic--that events change the probabilities of the various responses. The book is divided into two main parts. The first presents the general model, describes many of its formal properties, and considers a number of special cases. The second part applies the model to a number of experiments on learning and treats the statistical problems of estimating parameters and measuring goodness of fit. The mathematics used is given in detail in an elementary manner. Serious mathematical difficulties are avoided by Monte Carlo or stat-rat trials that simulate learning experiments by means of routines based on random numbers. Stat-rat trials facilitate the comparison of actual observations with the model. Several special tables will help the reader apply the model to his own experiments"--Jacket.
