This Book Presents Modern Nonparametric Statistics from a Practical Point of View and Emphasises Methods in Regression and Curve Fitting.

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "Nonparametric Statistics With Applications to Science and Engineering" to their offering.

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.
