Comparative statistical inference by Vic Barnett( Book )

65 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This fully updated and revised third edition, presents a wide ranging, balanced account of the fundamental issues across the full spectrum of inference and decision-making. Much has happened in this field since the second edition was published: for example, Bayesian inferential procedures have not only gained acceptance but are often the preferred methodology. This book will be welcomed by both the student and practising statistician wishing to study at a fairly elementary level, the basic conceptual and interpretative distinctions between the different approaches, how they interrelate, what assumptions they are based on, and the practical implications of such distinctions. As in earlier editions, the material is set in a historical context to more powerfully illustrate the ideas and concepts. * Includes fully updated and revised material from the successful second edition * Recent changes in emphasis, principle and methodology are carefully explained and evaluated * Discusses all recent major developments * Particular attention is given to the nature and importance of basic concepts (probability, utility, likelihood etc) * Includes extensive references and bibliography Written by a well-known and respected author, the essence of this successful book remains unchanged providing the reader with a thorough explanation of the many approaches to inference and decision making"--Publisher description

Environmental statistics : methods and applications by Vic Barnett( Book )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 847 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In modern society, we are ever more aware of the environmental issues we face, whether these relate to global warming, depletion of rivers and oceans, despoliation of forests, pollution of land, poor air quality, environmental health issues, etc. At the most fundamental level it is necessary to monitor what is happening in the environment ₆ collecting data to describe the changing scene. More importantly, it is crucial to formally describe the environment with sound and validated models, and to analyse and interpret the data we obtain in order to take action. Environmental Statistics provides a broad overview of the statistical methodology used in the study of the environment, written in an accessible style by a leading authority on the subject. It serves as both a textbook for students of environmental statistics, as well as a comprehensive source of reference for anyone working in statistical investigation of environmental issues. Provides broad coverage of the methodology used in the statistical investigation of environmental issues. Covers a wide range of key topics, including sampling, methods for extreme data, outliers and robustness, relationship models and methods, time series, spatial analysis, and environmental standards. Includes many detailed practical and worked examples that illustrate the applications of statistical methods in environmental issues. Authored by a leading authority on environmental statistics

Statistics for the environment 2 : water related issues by SPRUCE conference <2. ; 1993 ; Harpenden>( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental issues will continue to be of major concern to scientists, sociologists and politicians of all countries in the immediate future. At the forefront of such interest are issues related to water which are manifest in problems of pollution, nourishment, management, conservation, flood control, climate, energy supply and so on." "It is natural therefore that the SPRUCE initiative, concerned as it is with Statistics in Public Resources, Utilities and in Care of the Environment, should have organised its second international conference, held in Rothamsted, UK, in September 1993, on the specific theme of statistical models and methods in relation to environmental problems concerning water." "This volume presents an integrated and comprehensive coverage of the material of the conference, contributed by leading workers in the field." "The dual emphasis is on soundly constructed statistical models and methods and on their use in specific practical applications, making this book an essential resource for scientists and statisticians involved in water related areas of environmental monitoring, protection and conservation."--Jacket
Quantitative methods for current environmental issues by C. W Anderson( Book )

4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is increasingly clear that good quantitative work in the environmental sciences must be genuinely interdisciplinary. This volume, the proceedings of the first combined TIES/SPRUCE conference held at the University of Sheffield in September 2000, well demonstrates the truth of this assertion, highlighting the successful use of both statistics and mathematics in important practical problems. It brings together distinguished scientists and engineers to present the most up-to-date and practical methods for quantitative measurement and prediction and is organised around four themes: - spatial and temporal models and methods; - environmental sampling and standards; - atmosphere and ocean; - risk and uncertainty. Quantitative Methods for Current Environmental Issues is an invaluable resource for statisticians, applied mathematicians and researchers working on environmental problems, and for those in government agencies and research institutes involved in the analysis of environmental issues
