Overview

In this convenient textbook and reference work, the reader will find an introduction to statistical computing and a critical, balanced presentation of the algorithms and computational methods currently in use. Emphasizing the most accurate and widely used of these methods, the book thoroughly describes the algorithms that have been incorporated into the leading software systems of today, and discusses techniques for implementing algorithms in a computer. Statistical Computing contains the detail that researchers need, in the form of a textbook that gives advanced students a broad understanding of the subject, even in its most sophisticated aspects. Complete with exercises and extensive reference lists, Statistical Computing can be applied to a one-semester course for graduate students in statistics, mathematics, computer science, and any field in which numerical methods and algorithms are used in statistical data analyses.
