  1. Measurement Error and Misclassification in Statistics and Epidemiology

    Impacts and Bayesian Adjustments

    By Paul Gustafson

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Mismeasurement of explanatory variables is a common hazard when using statistical modeling techniques, and particularly so in fields such as biostatistics and epidemiology where perceived risk factors cannot always be measured accurately. With this perspective and a focus on both continuous and...

  2. Statistical Analysis of Gene Expression Microarray Data

    Edited by Terry Speed

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Although less than a decade old, the field of microarray data analysis is now thriving and growing at a remarkable pace. Biologists, geneticists, and computer scientists as well as statisticians all need an accessible, systematic treatment of the techniques used for analyzing the vast amounts of...

  3. An Invariant Approach to Statistical Analysis of Shapes

    By Subhash R. Lele, Joan T. Richtsmeier

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Natural scientists perceive and classify organisms primarily on the basis of their appearance and structure- their form , defined as that characteristic remaining invariant after translation, rotation, and possibly reflection of the object. The quantitative study of form and form change comprises...

  4. Group Sequential Methods with Applications to Clinical Trials

    By Christopher Jennison, Bruce W. Turnbull

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Group sequential methods answer the needs of clinical trial monitoring committees who must assess the data available at an interim analysis. These interim results may provide grounds for terminating the study-effectively reducing costs-or may benefit the general patient population by allowing early...

  5. Dynamical Search

    Applications of Dynamical Systems in Search and Optimization

    By Luc Pronzato, Henry P. Wynn, Anatoly A Zhigljavsky

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Certain algorithms that are known to converge can be renormalized or "blown up" at each iteration so that their local behavior can be seen. This creates dynamical systems that we can study with modern tools, such as ergodic theory, chaos, special attractors, and Lyapounov exponents. Furthermore, we...

  6. Graphical Analysis of Multi-Response Data

    By Kaye Enid Basford, John Wilder Tukey

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    A comprehensive summary of new and existing approaches to analyzing multiresponse data, Graphical Analysis of Multiresponse Data emphasizes graphical procedures. These procedures are then used, in various ways, to analyze, summarize, and present data from a specific, well-known plant breeding...

  7. Statistics for Environmental Biology and Toxicology

    By A. John Bailer, Walter. Piegorsch

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Statistics for Environmental Biology and Toxicology presents and illustrates statistical methods appropriate for the analysis of environmental data obtained in biological or toxicological experiments. Beginning with basic probability and statistical inferences, this text progresses through...

  8. Astrostatistics

    By Gutti Jogesh Babu, E.D. Feigelson

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Modern astronomers encounter a vast range of challenging statistical problems, yet few are familiar with the wealth of techniques developed by statisticians. Conversely, few statisticians deal with the compelling problems confronted in astronomy. Astrostatistics bridges this gap. Authored by a...

  9. Markov Chain Monte Carlo in Practice

    Edited by W.R. Gilks, S. Richardson, David Spiegelhalter

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    In a family study of breast cancer, epidemiologists in Southern California increase the power for detecting a gene-environment interaction. In Gambia, a study helps a vaccination program reduce the incidence of Hepatitis B carriage. Archaeologists in Austria place a Bronze Age site in its true...

  10. Introduction to Computational Biology

    Maps, Sequences and Genomes

    By Michael S. Waterman

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Biology is in the midst of a era yielding many significant discoveries and promising many more. Unique to this era is the exponential growth in the size of information-packed databases. Inspired by a pressing need to analyze that data, Introduction to Computational Biology explores a new area of...
