Meta Analysis : A Guide to Calibrating and Combining Statistical Evidence Paperback / softback
Part of the Wiley Series in Probability and Statistics series
Meta Analysis: A Guide to Calibrating and Combining Statistical Evidence acts as a source of basic methods for scientists wanting to combine evidence from different experiments.
The authors aim to promote a deeper understanding of the notion of statistical evidence. The book is comprised of two parts - The Handbook, and The Theory.
The Handbook is a guide for combining and interpreting experimental evidence to solve standard statistical problems.
This section allows someone with a rudimentary knowledge in general statistics to apply the methods.
The Theory provides the motivation, theory and results of simulation experiments to justify the methodology. This is a coherent introduction to the statistical concepts required to understand the authors' thesis that evidence in a test statistic can often be calibrated when transformed to the right scale.
