The Role of Statistics in Scientific Investigations

  • Glen McPherson
Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)

Abstract

Statistics means different things to different people. The everyday view is of the study of sets of numbers. Mathematicians seek a mathematical structure, statistical consultants might include the design of experiments and interpretation of experimental findings, and experimenters often regard computing as part of Statistics.
