About this book

This successful textbook is intended for students, professionals and research workers who need to apply statistical analysis to a large variety of practical problems using SPSS, MATLAB, STATISTICA and R. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of the main statistical analysis topics important for practical applications such as data description, statistical inference, classification and regression, factor analysis, survival data and directional statistics. The relevant notions and methods are explained concisely, illustrated with practical examples using real data, presented with the distinct intention of clarifying sensible practical issues. The solutions presented in the examples are obtained with one of the software packages in a pedagogical way. It provides guidance on how to use SPSS, MATLAB, STATISTICA and R in statistical analysis applications without having to delve in the manuals. The accompanying CD-Rom includes several specific software tools for the topics described in the book, including a set of MATLAB functions for directional statistics as well as the data sets used in the examples and exercises covering a broad spectrum of areas from engineering, medicine, biology, psychology, economy, geology, and astronomy.

Major improvements of the second edition are the inclusion of the R language as one of the application tools, a new section on bootstrap estimation methods, a revised explanation and treatment of tree classifiers as well as extra examples and exercises, additional MATLAB functions and a set of R functions in the accompanying CD-Rom.
