Title:The Foundations of Statistics: A Simulation-based Approach [electronic resource]
Author(s): Shravan Vasishth
Michael Broe
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistics and hypothesis testing are routinely used in areas (such as linguistics) that are traditionally not mathematically intensive. In such fields, when faced with experimental data, many students and researchers tend torely on commercial packag es to carry out statistical data analysis, often without understanding the logic of the statistical tests they rely on. As a consequence, results are often misinterpreted, and users have difficulty in flexiblyapplying techniques relevant to their own rese arch they use whatever they happen to have learned. A simple solution is to teach the fundamental ideas of statistical hypothesis testing without using too much mathematics. This bookprovides a non-mathematical, simulation-based introduction to basic sta tistical concepts and encourages readers to try out the simulations themselves using the source code and data provided (the freely available programming language Ris used throughout). Since the code presented in the text almost always requires the use of previously introduced programming constructs, diligent students also acquire basic programming abilities in R. The book is intended foradvanced undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline, although the focus is on linguistics, psychology, and co gnitive science. It is designed for self-instruction, but it can also be used as a textbook for a first course onstatistics. Earlier versions of the book have been used in undergraduate and graduate courses in Europe and the US. Vasishth and Broe have wr itten an attractive introduction to the foundations of statistics. It is concise,surprisingly comprehensive, self-contained and yet quite accessible. Highly recommended. Harald Baayen, Professor of Linguistics, University of Alberta, Canada By using the text students not only learn to do the specificthings outlined in the book, they also gain a skill set that empowers them to explore new areas that lie beyond the books coverage.
