Book description
Instructs readers on how to use methods of statistics and experimental design with R software
Applied statistics covers both the theory and the application of modern statistical and mathematical modelling techniques to applied problems in industry, public services, commerce, and research. It proceeds from a strong theoretical background, but it is practically oriented to develop one's ability to tackle new and nonstandard problems confidently. Taking a practical approach to applied statistics, this userfriendly guide teaches readers how to use methods of statistics and experimental design without going deep into the theory.
Applied Statistics: Theory and Problem Solutions with R includes chapters that cover R package sampling procedures, analysis of variance, point estimation, and more. It follows on the heels of Rasch and Schott's Mathematical Statistics via that book's theoretical background—taking the lessons learned from there to another level with this book’s addition of instructions on how to employ the methods using R. But there are two important chapters not mentioned in the theoretical back ground as Generalised Linear Models and Spatial Statistics.
 Offers a practical over theoretical approach to the subject of applied statistics
 Provides a preexperimental as well as postexperimental approach to applied statistics
 Features classroom tested material
 Applicable to a wide range of people working in experimental design and all empirical sciences
 Includes 300 different procedures with R and examples with Rprograms for the analysis and for determining minimal experimental sizes
Applied Statistics: Theory and Problem Solutions with R will appeal to experimenters, statisticians, mathematicians, and all scientists using statistical procedures in the natural sciences, medicine, and psychology amongst others.
