  1. Drug Synergism and Dose-Effect Data Analysis

    By Ronald J. Tallarida

    Not since this author's bestselling Manual of Pharmacologic Calculation-long out of print-has there been a reference available for drug data analysis, and even that work did not deal with drug combinations. Although pharmacologists and most other scientists know what synergism is, mainstream...

  2. The Theory of the Design of Experiments

    By D.R. Cox, Nancy Reid

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability

    Why study the theory of experiment design? Although it can be useful to know about special designs for specific purposes, experience suggests that a particular design can rarely be used directly. It needs adaptation to accommodate the circumstances of the experiment. Successful designs depend upon...

  3. Fitting Statistical Distributions

    The Generalized Lambda Distribution and Generalized Bootstrap Methods

    By Zaven A. Karian, Edward J. Dudewicz

    Throughout the physical and social sciences, researchers face the challenge of fitting statistical distributions to their data. Although the study of statistical modelling has made great strides in recent years, the number and variety of distributions to choose from-all with their own formulas,...

  4. Statistical Modelling with Quantile Functions

    By Warren Gilchrist

    Galton used quantiles more than a hundred years ago in describing data. Tukey and Parzen used them in the 60s and 70s in describing populations. Since then, the authors of many papers, both theoretical and practical, have used various aspects of quantiles in their work. Until now, however, no one...

  5. Analysis of Pretest-Posttest Designs

    By Peter L. Bonate

    How do you analyze pretest-posttest data? Difference scores? Percent change scores? ANOVA? In medical, psychological, sociological, and educational studies, researchers often design experiments in which they collect baseline (pretest) data prior to randomization. However, they often find it...

  6. Meta-Analysis in Medicine and Health Policy

    Edited by Dalene Stangl, Donald A. Berry

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series

    This remarkable text raises the analysis of data in health sciences and policy to new heights of refinement and applicability by introducing cutting-edge meta-analysis strategies while reviewing more commonly used techniques. Each chapter builds on sound principles, develops methodologies to solve...

  7. Quantitative Investigations in the Biosciences using MINITAB

    By John Eddison

    Until recently, acquiring a background in the basic methodological principles that apply to most types of investigations meant struggling to obtain results through laborious calculations. The advent of statistical software packages has removed much of the tedium and many of the errors of manual...

  8. A First Course in the Design of Experiments

    A Linear Models Approach

    By John H. Skillings, Donald Weber

    Most texts on experimental design fall into one of two distinct categories. There are theoretical works with few applications and minimal discussion on design, and there are methods books with limited or no discussion of the underlying theory. Furthermore, most of these tend to either treat the...

  9. A Course in Categorical Data Analysis

    By Thomas Leonard

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science

    Categorical data-comprising counts of individuals, objects, or entities in different categories-emerge frequently from many areas of study, including medicine, sociology, geology, and education. They provide important statistical information that can lead to real-life conclusions and the discovery...

  10. Statistical Aspects of BSE and vCJD

    Models for Epidemics

    By C A Donnelly, N M Ferguson

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability

    Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) or "mad cow disease," first diagnosed in late 1986, is transmitted through feed, indirect horizontal transmission, apparently maternally and possibly horizontally, through cattle-to-cattle contact or a contaminated environment. With no ante-mortem test yet...
