David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
42 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in English and held by 733 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Latent Variable Models and Factor Analysis provides a comprehensive and unified approach to factor analysis and latent variable modeling from a statistical perspective. This book presents a general framework to enable the derivation of the commonly used models, along with updated numerical examples. Nature and interpretation of a latent variable is also introduced along with related techniques for investigating dependency. This book:Provides a unified approach showing how such apparently diverse methods as Latent Class Analysis and Factor Analysis are actually members of the same family. Presen

Uncertain belief : is it rational to be a Christian? by
David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
19 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The certainties which underpinned Christian belief have crumbled in a world where science sets the standard of what is true. A rational case for belief must therefore be constructed out of uncertainties. Probability theory provides the tools for measuring and combining uncertainties and is thus the key to progress. This book examines four much debated topics where the logic of uncertain reference can be brought to bear. These are: miracles, the paranormal, God's existence, and the Bible. Given the great diversity of evidence, it is not surprising that opposite conclusions have been drawn by supposedly rational people. An assessment of the state of the argument from a probabilistic perspective is overdue. In this book Professor Bartholomew examines and refutes some of the more extravagant claims, evaluates the weight of some of the quantitative evidence, and provides an answer to the fundamental question: can a rational person be a Christian?

Measuring intelligence : facts and fallacies by
David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book aims to penetrate the mists of controversy, ideology and prejudice by providing a clear nonmathematical framework for the definition and measurement of intelligence derived from modern factor analysis. Building on this framework and drawing on everyday ideas, the author addresses key controversies in a clear and accessible style and explores some of the claims made by wellknown writers in the field such as Stephen Jay Gould and Michael Howe."Jacket

God, chance, and purpose : can God have it both ways? by
David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
15 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Scientific accounts of existence give chance a central role. At the smallest level, quantum theory involves uncertainty and evolution is driven by chance and necessity. These ideas do not fit easily with theology in which chance has been seen as the enemy of purpose. One option is to argue, as proponents of Intelligent Design do, that chance is not real and can be replaced by the work of a Designer. Others adhere to a deterministic theology in which God is in total control. Neither of these views, it is argued, does justice to the complexity of nature or the greatness of God. The thesis of this book is that chance is neither unreal nor nonexistent but an integral part of God's creation. This view is expounded, illustrated and defended by drawing on the resources of probability theory and numerous examples from the natural and social worlds."Jacket

Statistics without mathematics by
David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An ideal primer for students who need an introduction to the concepts of statistics without the added confusion of technical jargon and mathematical language. It introduces the intuitive thinking behind standard procedures, explores the process of informal reasoning, and uses conceptual frameworks to provide a foundation for students new to statistics. It showcases the expertise we have all developed from living in a data saturated society, increases statistical literacy and offers the tools needed to approach statistical mathematics with confidence"Back cover

Unobserved variables : models and misunderstandings by
David J Bartholomew(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The classical statistical problem typically involves a probability distribution which depends on a number of unknown parameters. The form of the distribution may be known, partially or completely, and inferences have to be made on the basis of a sample of observations drawn from the distribution; often, but not necessarily, a random sample. This brief deals with problems where some of the sample members are either unobserved or hypothetical, the latter category being introduced as a means of better explaining the data. Sometimes we are interested in these kinds of variable themselves and sometimes in the parameters of the distribution. Many problems that can be cast into this form are treated. These include: missing data, mixtures, latent variables, time series and social measurement problems. Although all can be accommodated within a Bayesian framework, most are best treated from first principles
