by Wendy L. Martinez, Angel R. Martinez Focusing on the computational aspects of statistics rather than the theoretical, this handbook uses a down-to-earth approach that makes statistics accessible to a wide range of users. The authors include algorithmic descriptions and MATLAB code for many of the latest methods in computational statistics. Detailed procedures are also included for readers who do not know MATLAB so they can implement the algorithms using other software packages. As a companion to the handbook, MATLAB functions are available for download that implement the techniques described in the text. This is the first book on the market to show how to use MATLAB to execute a wide variety of computational statistics methods and techniques.
