Phillips Computing for Scientists R. J. Barlow and A. R. Barnett Written by a physicist, Statistics is tailored to the needs of physical scientists, containing and explaining all they need to know. It concentrates on parameter estimation, especially the methods of Least Squares and Maximum Likelihood, but other techniques, such as hypothesis testing, Bayesian statistics and non-parametric methods are also included. Intended for reasonably numerate scientists it contains all the basic formulae, their derivations and applications, together with some more advanced ones. Statistics features: Comprehensive coverage of the essential techniques physical scientists are likely to need. A wealth of examples, and problems with their answers. Flexible structure and organisation allows it to be used as a course text and a reference. A review of the basics, so that little prior knowledge is required.
