  1. 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...

  4. 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...

  5. 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...
