Statistics for Science and Engineering

John J. Kinney, 2002, Addison Wesley, 488 pp., hardcover.

This book is an introduction to the statistical analysis of data that arise from experiments, sample surveys, or other observational studies. The emphasis is on explaining statistical techniques and showing how they are used, not on discussing their mathematical origins. The book focuses on topics that are frequently used by scientists and engineers, particularly the topics of regression, design of experiments, and statistical process control. Exercises are drawn largely from applied situations in which scientists and engineers are likely to find themselves. Mathematica is used to illustrate results graphically and to do complex calculations, and Appendix A provides instruction and guidance in the use of Mathematica.
