This Book Presents Modern Nonparametric Statistics from a Practical Point of View and Emphasises Methods in Regression and Curve Fitting.
This book presents modern nonparametric statistics from a practical point of view. It is primarily intended for use with engineers and scientists. While the book covers the necessary theorems and methods of rank tests in an applied fashion, the novelty lies in its emphasis on modern nonparametric methods in regression and curve fitting, bootstrap confidence intervals, splines, wavelets, empirical and nonparametric likelihood, and goodness of fit testing. MATLAB is the computing and programming system of choice throughout the book because of its special applicability for research analysis and simulation.
Paul H. Kvam, PhD, is Professor of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology. His research interests include nonparametric estimation, statistical reliability with applications to engineering, and analysis of complex and dependent systems. He has written over fifty refereed articles and was named a Fellow of the American Statistical Association in 2006.
Brani Vidakovic, PhD, is Professor of Statistics and Director of the Centre for Bioengineering Statistics at The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology. He has authored or co-authored three books and has published more than four dozen refereed articles. His areas of interest include wavelets, Bayesian inference, biostatistics, statistical methods in environmental research, and statistical education.
