Parametrische Statistik: Verteilungen, maximum likelihood by Carsten F. Dormann

By Carsten F. Dormann

Beispielreich baut dieses Buch Schritt für Schritt die statistischen Grundlagen moderner Datenanalysen auf. Im Gegensatz zu anderen einführenden Werken legt dieses Buch großen Wert auf einen umfassend gespannten Bogen, einen roten Faden, der alle Methoden zusammenführt. Dabei werden klassische statistische Methoden (etwa t-Test oder a number of Regression) als Spezialfall des Generalisierten Linearen Modells entwickelt. Entsprechend legt das Buch zunächst eine Grundlage in beschreibender Statistik, Verteilungen und greatest chance, aus der dann alle anderen Verfahren abgeleitet werden (ANOVA, a number of Regression).

Jeder Schritt ist auf zwei Kapitel verteilt: Im ungradzahligen Kapitel wird anhand von vielen Beispielen und Abbildungen die Idee der statistischen Herangehensweise erläutert. Im sich daran anschließenden gradzahligen Kapitel wird die Umsetzung in der freien Statistiksoftware R gezeigt. Ein Kapitel zur Wissenschafts- und Forschungstheorie und eines zum layout von Experimenten und Stichprobeverfahren komplettiert dieses einleitende Werk.

Das Buch legt großen Wert auf Verständlichkeit und Umsetzung. Mathematische Herleitungen treten demgegenüber stark in den Hintergrund. Jedes Kapitel enthält explizit ausgewiesene Lerninhalte, die durch Übungen zu jedem R-Kapitel geprüft werden können. Ein ausführliches Schlagwortverzeichnis inklusive der R-Funktionen macht das Buch auch als Nachschlagewerk nutzbar.

Die zweite Auflage wurde ergänzt um Schätzung mittels der Momentenmethode, Residuendiagnostik für nicht-normalverteilte Daten und die erschöpfende Modellsuche.
