The Wiley-Interscience Paperback Series consists ofselected books that have been made more accessible to consumers inan effort to increase global appeal and general circulation. Withthese new unabridged softcover volumes, Wiley hopes to extend thelives of these works by making them available to future generationsof statisticians, mathematicians, and scientists.
"In recent years many monographs have been published onspecialized aspects of multivariate data-analysis–on clusteranalysis, multidimensional scaling, correspondence analysis,developments of discriminant analysis, graphical methods,classification, and so on. This book is an attempt to review thesenewer methods together with the classical theory. . . . This onemerits two cheers."–J. C. Gower, Department of StatisticsRothamsted Experimental Station, Harpenden, U.K.Review in Biometrics, June 1987
Multivariate Observations is a comprehensive sourcebookthat treats data-oriented techniques as well as classical methods.Emphasis is on principles rather than mathematical detail, andcoverage ranges from the practical problems of graphicallyrepresenting high-dimensional data to the theoretical problemsrelating to matrices of random variables. Each chapter serves as aself-contained survey of a specific topic. The book includes manynumerical examples and over 1,100 references.
