Advanced Statistics with Applications in R fills the gap between several excellent theoretical statistics textbooks and many applied statistics books where teaching reduces to using existing packages. This book looks at what is under the hood. Many statistics issues including the recent crisis with p-value are caused by misunderstanding of statistical concepts due to poor theoretical background of practitioners and applied statisticians. This book is the product of a forty-year experience in teaching of probability and statistics and their applications for solving real-life problems.
There are more than 442 examples in the book: basically every probability or statistics concept is illustrated with an example accompanied with an R code. Many examples, such as Who said #? What team is better? The fall of the Roman empire, James Bond chase problem, Black Friday shopping, Free fall equation: Aristotle or Galilei, and many others are intriguing. These examples cover biostatistics, finance, physics and engineering, text and image analysis, epidemiology, spatial statistics, sociology, etc.
Advanced Statistics with Applications in R teaches students to use theory for solving real-life problems through computations: there are about 500 R codes and 100 datasets. This data can be freely downloaded from the button below.
Mixed Models: Theory and Applications with R
This book features unique applications of mixed model methodology, as well as:
Comprehensive theoretical discussions illustrated by examples and figures
Problems and extended projects requiring simulations in R intended to reinforce material
Summaries of major results and general points of discussion at the end of each chapter
Open problems in mixed modeling methodology, which can be used as the basis for research or PhD dissertations
Over 300 exercises, end-of-section problems, updated data sets, and R subroutines
About the Author
PROFESSOR EUGENE DEMIDENKO works at Dartmouth College in the Department of Biomedical Science, he teaches statistics at Mathematics Department to undergraduate students and to graduate students at Quantitative Biomedical Sciences at Geisel School of Medicine. He has brought experience in theoretical and applied statistics, such as epidemiology and biostatistics, statistical analysis of images, tumor regrowth, ill-posed inverse problems in engineering and technology, optimal portfolio allocation, among others. His first book with Wiley Mixed Model: Theory and Applications with R gained much popularity among researchers and graduate/PhD students. Prof. Demidenko is the author of a controversial paper The P-value You Can't Buy published in 2016 in The American Statistician.
