The book is divided into three sections: Part I discusses comparative analysis of distributions, compositions, sequences of rates, and other vectors; Part II studies the interdependence of the parts that together make up the whole; and Part III investigates the aggregative analysis of such parts in both static and dynamic terms.
Key Features
