DescriptionTable of ContentsDetailsHashtagsReport an issue ### Book Description

The purpose of the 3rd edition of this book is to give a sound and self-contained (in the sense that the necessary probability theory is included) introduction to classical or mainstream statistical theory. It is not a statistical-methods-cookbook, nor a compendium of statistical theories, nor is it a mathematics book. The book is intended to be a textbook, aimed for use in the traditional full-year upper-division undergraduate course in probability and statistics, or for use as a text in a course designed for first-year graduate students. The latter course is often a "service course," offered to a variety of disciplines.

No previous course in probability or statistics is needed in order to study the book. The mathematical preparation required is the conventional full-year calculus course which includes series expansion, mUltiple integration, and partial differentiation. Linear algebra is not required. An attempt has been made to talk to the reader. Also, we have retained the approach of presenting the theory with some connection to practical problems. The book is not mathematically rigorous. Proofs, and even exact statements of results, are often not given. Instead, we have tried to impart a "feel" for the theory. ### Table of Contents

Introduction to the Modeling and Analysis of Complex Systems introduces students to mathematical/computational modeling and analysis developed in the emerging interdisciplinary field of Complex Systems Science. Complex systems are systems made of a large number of microscopic components interacting with each other in nontrivial ways. Many real-worl...

Books about Oxford have generally focused on the University rather than the city. This original book on the local politics of Oxford City from 1830 to 1980 is based on a comprehensive analysis of primary sources and tells the story of the city's progressive politics. The book traces this history from Chartism and electoral reform in the mid-ni...
