In this update of the classic 1978 text, professors emeriti of statistics/engineering (U. of Wisconsin-Madison; Princeton U.) present examples of how analytic tools may be applied by subject area specialists. Promoting cross-fertilization between statisticians and scientists, they treat the shared problems of complexity, experimental error, and correlation vs. causation after a review of basic statistics. New topics include graphical analysis of variance, computer analysis of complex designs, Bayesian approaches to model selection, and time series models. Quotes from eclectic sources (e.g. "Experiment and you'll see!"—Cole Porter) enliven the volume. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
