About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1969, this informative textbook is the second edition of the second part of a two-volume set, which explores the subject of statistics in full, from elementary to advanced level. Primarily aimed at university students as a course of self-study, this second part focuses on advanced statistics and contains multiple examples and exercises, predominantly taken from past examination papers so as to meet the requirements of examinations at the time of publication. Chapters cover all of the key topics expected of an advanced-level statistics course; chapter titles include, 'Location and dispersion', 'The binomial distribution' and 'Samples and significance'. Notably, at the end of the book a glossary summarising the terms and formulae is included for reference. This numerical, experimental and practical book will be of great value to scholars of mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in physics, economics and the history of education.
