About this book

This is the first comprehensive, yet clearly presented, account of statistical methods for analysing spherical data. The analysis of data, in the form of directions in space or of positions of points on a spherical surface, is required in many contexts in the earth sciences, astrophysics and other fields, yet the methodology required is disseminated throughout the literature. Statistical Analysis of Spherical Data aims to present a unified and up-to-date account of these methods for practical use. The emphasis is on applications rather than theory, with the statistical methods being illustrated throughout the book by data examples.

Contents

Media reviews

'The book is up-to-date and very comprehensive, yet carefully written, with excellent index and bibliography. Notable features are the worked examples using real data and the profusion of computer-generated plots and diagrams. Undoubtedly, this will become the standard reference work on the application of statistical methods to spherical data.' R. M. Clark, The Australian Journal of Statistics
