This graduate-level text provides a survey of the logic and reasoning underpinning statistical analysis, as well as giving a broad-brush overview of the various statistical techniques that play a major roll in scientific and social investigations. Arranged in rough historical order, the text starts with the ideas of provability that underpin statistical methods and progresses through the developments of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries to modern concerns and solutions. Assuming only a basic level of Mathematics and with numerous examples and illustrations, this text presents a valuable resource not only to the experienced researcher but also to the student, by complementing courses in a wide range of substantive areas and enabling the reader to rise above the details in order to see the overall structure of the subject.

Einführung in Statistik und Messwertanalyse für Physiker


Author: G. Bohm,G. Zech

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: 9783540257592


Page: 400

Die Einf]hrung in die Statistik und Messwertanalyse f]r Physiker richtet sich weniger an mathematischen \berlegungen aus, sondern stellt die praktische Anwendung in den Vordergrund und schdrft die Intuition experimentelle Ergebnisse richtig einzuschdtzen. Zahlreiche ausf]hrlich betrachtete Beispiele dienen dazu, hdufig bei der Datenanalyse gemachte Fehler zu vermeiden (unsinnige Anwendung des Chi-Quadrattests, Funktionenanpassung bei falscher Parametrisierung, Entfaltung mit willk]rlicher Regularisierung). Ein besonderes Augenmerk wird auf den Vergleich von Daten mit Monte-Carlo-Simulationen gelenkt. Moderne Experimente kommen nicht ohne Simulation aus. Deshalb ist es wichtig zu wissen, wie Parameteranpassungen und Entfaltungen in diesem Fall durchgef]rt werden. Au_erdem werden den Studierenden moderne Entwicklungen der Statistik nahegebracht, die in dlteren Lehrb]chern nicht behandelt werden.

"Medical treatment is becoming more and more dependent on decisions arrived at through a variety of carefully planned and interpreted investigations. Biostatistics is recognized as the basic tool for arriving at these decisions. Today training of a medical research worker as well as a medical practitioner would be considered incomplete without a reasonable acquaintance with biostatistical techniques. The present book is aimed at providing a comprehensive treatment of the subject and to serve as a textbook of biostatistics for graduate and postgraduate medical students and for students of pharmaceutical courses. The book will be especially useful for those engaged in clinical research."--Back cover.
