Why One Needs to Analyze Data
In this chapter you will find a collection of examples of phenomena where the randomness plays an essential role. Browse through them at your leisure, experiment with the data provided, and use this opportunity to ease your way into Mathematica. The idea is to get a general feel for the issues to be discussed later in the book in greater detail.
