Modern Methods for Business Research by George A. Marcoulides

By George A. Marcoulides

This quantity introduces the most recent well known tools for accomplishing company examine. The aim of every bankruptcy author--a top authority in a specific topic area--is to supply an figuring out of every procedure with not less than mathematical derivations. The chapters are prepared inside of 3 normal interrelated topics--Measurement, determination research, and Modeling.

The chapters on size talk about generalizability concept, latent trait and latent classification versions, and multi-faceted Rasch modeling. The chapters on determination research function utilized situation thought types, information envelopment research, and heuristic seek strategies. The chapters on modeling learn exploratory and confirmatory issue research, dynamic issue research, partial least squares and structural equation modeling, multilevel facts research, modeling of longitudinal information through latent progress curve equipment and buildings, and configural versions of longitudinal express data.

Foundations of Statistical Natural Language Processing

Statistical techniques to processing common language textual content became dominant lately. This foundational textual content is the 1st finished creation to statistical average language processing (NLP) to seem. The publication includes the entire conception and algorithms wanted for construction NLP instruments. It offers wide yet rigorous insurance of mathematical and linguistic foundations, in addition to exact dialogue of statistical tools, permitting scholars and researchers to build their very own implementations. The booklet covers collocation discovering, be aware feel disambiguation, probabilistic parsing, details retrieval, and different applications.

Fundamentals of Modern Statistical Methods: Substantially Improving Power and Accuracy

Traditional statistical tools have a really severe flaw. They oftentimes omit variations between teams or institutions between variables which are detected by way of extra glossy recommendations, even less than very small departures from normality. countless numbers of magazine articles have defined the explanations typical recommendations should be unsatisfactory, yet uncomplicated, intuitive causes are quite often unavailable.

Statistics in Science: The Foundations of Statistical Methods in Biology, Physics and Economics

An inference might be outlined as a passage of suggestion in keeping with a few process. within the concept of information it really is frequent to tell apart deductive and non-deductive inferences. Deductive inferences are fact keeping, that's, the reality of the premises is preserved within the con­ clusion. hence, the belief of a deductive inference is already 'contained' within the premises, even though we would possibly not comprehend this truth till the inference is played.

Business Statistics

Directed basically towards undergraduate company college/university majors, this article additionally offers functional content material to present and aspiring pros. company information exhibits readers the way to practice statistical research talents to real-world, decision-making difficulties. It makes use of an immediate strategy that always offers innovations and methods in method that merits readers of all mathematical backgrounds.
