The field of statistics focuses on drawing conclusions from data by modeling and analyzing the data using probabilistic models. The authors of this introductory text describe three key concepts from statistics—estimators, tests, and confidence regions—which they demonstrate and apply in an extensive variety of examples and case studies. An entire chapter covers regression models, including linear regression and analysis of variance. This book, designed for students, assumes a basic knowledge of probability theory, calculus, and linear algebra.
