Description - Statistical Methods, Experimental Design, and Scientific Inference by R. A. Fisher
R.A. Fisher has had more influence on the development of statistical theory and practice than any other twentieth-century statistician. His writings (both in paper and book form) have proved to be as relevant to present-day statisticians as they were when first published. This book brings together as a single volume three of Fisher's most influential textbooks: Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments , and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference . In this new edition Frank Yates has provided a foreword which sheds fresh light on Fisher's thinking and on the writing and reception of each of the books. He discusses some of the key issues tackled in the three books and reflects on how the ideas expressed have come to permeate modern statistical practice.
