Book description
ChiSquared Goodness of Fit Tests with Applications provides a thorough and complete context for the theoretical basis and implementation of Pearson’s monumental contribution and its wide applicability for chisquared goodness of fit tests. The book is ideal for researchers and scientists conducting statistical analysis in processing of experimental data as well as to students and practitioners with a good mathematical background who use statistical methods. The historical context, especially Chapter 7, provides great insight into importance of this subject with an authoritative author team. This reference includes the most recent application developments in using these methods and models.
 Systematic presentation with interesting historical context and coverage of the fundamentals of the subject
 Presents modern model validity methods, graphical techniques, and computerintensive methods
 Recent research and a variety of open problems
 Interesting reallife examples for practitioners
