About this book

This book presents multivariate statistical methods useful in geological analysis. The essential distinction between multivariate analysis as applied to full-space data (measurements on lengths, heights, breadths etc.) and compositional data is emphasized with particular reference to geochemical data. Each of the methods is accompanied by a practically oriented computer program and backed up by appropriate examples. The computer programs are provided on a compact disk together with trial data-sets and examples of the output. An important feature of this book is the graphical system developed by Dr. Savazzi which is entitled "Graph Server". Geological data often deviate from ideal statistical requirements. For this reason, close attention has been paid to the analysis of data that contain atypical observations.


Graph Server and Graph Wizard. Methods for Analysing a Sample Drawn From a Single Population. Comparing Samples From Two Populations: The Discriminant Function. Analysis of Several Groups: Canonical Variate Analysis. Correlating Between Sets. Some Problems in Petrology and Geochemistry. Miscellaneous Examples.
