Review
"… a concise but simple manual for using SAS. It has put thousands of pages of SAS manuals in less than 400 pages of a paperback…describes the use of SAS Version 8.1 in the Microsoft Windows Environment. However, the programming part can be used in almost any environment … The authors have again done an excellent job of explaining each statement as well as the resulting output … In summary, the handbook introduces SAS programming through a number of datasets of varied complexity, makes the datasets suitable for analysis through programming statements, then uses SAS procedures for analysis. SAS procedures and the resulting outputs are properly explained, and suggestions for appropriate analyses are provided where necessary. Overall, I consider this an excellent handbook for a beginning SAS user. Statisticians...

Book Description
Bernard Rosner's FUNDAMENTALS OF BIOSTATISTICS is a practical introduction to the methods, techniques, and computation of statistics with human subjects. It prepares students for their future courses and careers by introducing the statistical methods most often used in medical literature.

Book Description
Advances in computers and biotechnology have had a profound impact on biomedical research, and as a result complex data sets can now be generated to address extremely complex biological questions. Correspondingly, advances in the statistical methods necessary to analyze such data are following closely behind the advances in data generation methods. The statistical methods required by bioinformatics present many new and difficult problems for the research community. This book provides an introduction to some of these new methods. The main biological topics treated include sequence analysis, BLAST, microarray analysis, gene finding, and the analysis of evolutionary processes. The main statistical techniques covered include hypothesis testing and estimation, Poisson processes, Markov models and Hidden Markov...


Model Selection and Multi-Model Inference
Kenneth P. Burnham, David Anderson
0387953647
December 4, 2003
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
The second edition of this book is unique in that it focuses on methods for making formal statistical inference from all the models in an a priori set (Multi-Model Inference). A philosophy is presented for model-based data analysis and a general strategy outlined for the analysis of empirical data. The book invites increased attention on a priori science hypotheses and modeling. Kullback-Leibler Information represents a fundamental quantity in science and is Hirotugu Akaike's basis for model selection. The maximized log-likelihood function can be bias-corrected as an estimator of expected, relative Kullback-Leibler information. This leads to Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC) and various extensions. These methods are relatively simple and easy to use in practice, but based on deep statistical theory. The information...
