Statistical methods in biology by
Norman T. J Bailey(
Book
)
112 editions published between 1959 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,056 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Generations of biologists have relied upon this useful book, which presents the basic concepts of statistics lucidly and convincingly. It recognises that students must be aware of when to use the standard techniques and how to apply the results they obtain. The reasoning behind the more important procedures is carefully explained. Since many biologists do not have a strong mathematical background, the arguments are gauged in terms which can be easily understood by those with only an elementary knowledge of algebra. Unlike many other introductory books, mathematical derivations are avoided and formulae are only used as a convenient shorthand. Although the subject is presented with great simplicity, the coverage is wide and will satisfy the needs of those working in many disciplines."Jacket

The craft of probabilistic modelling : a collection of personal accounts by
J. M Gani(
Book
)
9 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book brings together the personal accounts and reflections of nineteen mathematical modelbuilders, whose specialty is probabilistic modelling. The reader may well wonder why, apart from personal interest, one should commission and edit such a collection of articles. There are, of course, many reasons, but perhaps the three most relevant are: (i) a philosophicaJ interest in conceptual models; this is an interest shared by everyone who has ever puzzled over the relationship between thought and reality; (ii) a conviction, not unsupported by empirical evidence, that probabilistic modelling has an important contribution to make to scientific research; and finally (iii) a curiosity, historical in its nature, about the complex interplay between personal events and the development of a field of mathematical research, namely applied probability. Let me discuss each of these in turn. Philosophical Abstraction, the formation of concepts, and the construction of conceptual models present us with complex philosophical problems which date back to Democritus, Plato and Aristotle. We have all, at one time or another, wondered just how we think; are our thoughts, concepts and models of reality approxim & tions to the truth, or are they simply functional constructs helping us to master our environment? Nowhere are these problems more apparent than in mathematical model ling, where idealized concepts and constructions replace the imperfect realities for which they stand

Mathematics, statistics, and systems for health by
Norman T. J Bailey(
Book
)
16 editions published between 1977 and 1988 in English and Spanish and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The purpose of this book is to make available to a wide reading public a greater understanding of the role of quantitative methods in helping to develop and improve medical care and health services throughout the world. Special attention has been paid to the significance and potentialities of mathematics, statistics, modelling, computers, operational research, systems analysis, and system dynamics. The edition adopts an intergrated treatment, and keeps the purely mathematical aspects down to a minimum. It is more concerned with general notions and principles than with technical mathematical details
