Visual Statistics - Forrest W. Young; Pedro M. Valero-Mora; Michael Friendly
Call Number: Q325.5 .B347 2012
ISBN: 9780471681601
Publication Date: 2006-08-04
A visually intuitive approach to statistical data analysis Visual Statistics brings the most complex and advanced statistical methods within reach of those with little statistical training by using animated graphics of the data. The book provides users with the opportunity to view the graphics in a dynamic way by illustrating how to analyze statistical data and explore the concepts of visual statistics and is also ideal as a reference/self-study guide for engineers, scientists, and mathematicians. With contributions by highly regarded professionals in the field, Visual Statistics not only improves a student's understanding of statistics, but also builds confidence to overcome problems that may have previously been intimidating.

A Career in Statistics - J. Mather; Necip Doganaksoy; Gerald J. Hahn
Call Number: QA276.17 .H34 2011
ISBN: 9780470404416
Publication Date: 2011-06-28
A valuable guide to a successful career as a statistician A Career in Statistics: Beyond the Numbers prepares readers for careers in statistics by emphasizing essential concepts and practices beyond the technical tools provided in standard courses and texts. This insider's guide from internationally recognized applied statisticians helps readers decide whether a career in statistics is right for them, provides hands-on guidance on how to prepare for such a career, and shows how to succeed on the job. The book provides non-technical guidance for a successful career.

Basic Data Analysis for Time Series with R - Derryberry, DeWayne R.
Call Number: QA280 .D475 2014
ISBN: 9781118422540
Publication Date: 2014-07-08
Written at a readily accessible level, Basic Data Analysis for Time Series with R emphasizes the mathematical importance of collaborative analysis of data used to collect increments of time or space. Balancing a theoretical and practical approach to analyzing data within the context of serial correlation, the book presents a coherent and systematic regression-based approach to model selection.  The book illustrates these principles of model selection and model building through the use of information criteria, cross validation, hypothesis tests, and confidence intervals.

Model Building in Mathematical Programming - H. Paul Williams
Call Number: T57.7 .W55 2013
ISBN: 1118443330
Publication Date: 2013-03-04
The 5th edition of Model Building in Mathematical Programming discusses the general principles of model building in mathematical programming and demonstrates how they can be applied by using several simplified but practical problems from widely different contexts. Suggested formulations and solutions are given together with some computational experience to give the reader a feel for the computational difficulty of solving that particular type of model.

  • EbscoHOST
    This multi-disciplinary database provides full text for thousands of journals, including full text for many peer-reviewd titles and PDF backfiles to 1886. Some useful subjects in this database include business, marketing management and economics.
  • MathSciNet
    This electronic publication offers access to a carefully maintained and easily searchable database of reviews, abstracts and bibliographic information for much of the mathematical sciences literature. Over 100,000 new items are added each year, most of them classified according to the Mathematics Subject Classification. MathSciNet® contains over 2.8 million items and over 1.6 million direct links to original articles. Bibliographic data from retrodigitized articles dates back to the early 1800s. Reference lists are collected and matched internally from approximately 500 journals, and citation data for journals, authors, articles and reviews is provided.
  • Science Citation Index
    The Science Citation Index (part of Web of Science) provides access to current and retrospective bibliographic information, author abstracts, and cited references found in approximately 5,900 of the world's leading scholarly science and technical journals covering more than 150 disciplines. AFIT access to partial-full text only.

Google Scholar

Did you know that we also link our full-text databases through Google Scholar?  If you search from any campus computer or authenticate through VPN, Google Scholar will direct you to sources from the D'Azzo Research Library.
