Models and Estimation
Overdispersion is commonly encountered in modelling data. Statisticians and those working in the application areas need to know how to deal with it, and this book provides a complete source for identifying and handling overdispersion. With increasing focus on modelling in the applied sciences, this...

Multilevel, Longitudinal, and Structural Equation Models
This book unifies and extends latent variable models, including multilevel or generalized linear mixed models, longitudinal or panel models, item response or factor models, latent class or finite mixture models, and structural equation models. Following a gentle introduction to latent variable...

Impacts and Bayesian Adjustments
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...

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...

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...

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...

Applications of Dynamical Systems in Search and Optimization
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...

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...

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...
