Engineering Biostatistics : An Introduction using MATLAB and WinBUGS Hardback
Part of the Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics series
Provides a one-stop resource for engineers learning biostatistics using MATLAB and WinBUGS Through its scope and depth of coverage, this book addresses the needs of the vibrant and rapidly growing bio-oriented engineering fields while implementing software packages that are familiar to engineers.
The book is heavily oriented to computation and hands-on approaches so readers understand each step of the programming.
Another dimension of this book is in parallel coverage of both Bayesian and frequentist approaches to statistical inference.
It avoids taking sides on the classical vs. Bayesian approach, and many examples in this book are solved using both methods. The results are then compared and commented upon. Readers have the choice of MATLAB for classical data analysis and WinBUGS/OpenBUGS for Bayesian data analysis.
Every chapter starts with a box highlighting what is covered in that chapter and ends with exercises, a list of software scripts, datasets, and references. Engineering Biostatistics: An Introduction using MATLAB and WinBUGS also includes: * parallel coverage of classical and Bayesian approaches, where appropriate * substantial coverage of Bayesian approaches to statistical inference * material classroom tested in an introductory statistics course in bioengineering over several years * exercises at the end of each chapter and an accompanying website with full solutions to even-numbered exercises, hints for odd-numbered exercises, and additional materials and examples Engineering Biostatistics: An Introduction using MATLAB and WinBUGS can serve as a textbook for introductory-to-intermediate applied statistics courses, as well as a useful reference for engineers interested in biostatistical approaches.
