Statistical Computing in C++ and R (Chapman & Hall/CRC The R Series)

Buy

With the advancement of statistical methodology inextricably linked to the use of computers, new methodological ideas must be translated into usable code and then numerically evaluated relative to competing procedures. In response to this, Statistical Computing in C++ and R concentrates on the writing of code rather than the development and study of numerical algorithms per se. The book discusses code development in C++ and R and the use of these symbiotic languages in unison. It emphasizes that each offers distinct features that, when used in tandem, can take code writing beyond what can be obtained from either language alone.

The text begins with some basics of object-oriented languages, followed by a "boot-camp" on the use of C++ and R. The authors then discuss code development for the solution of specific computational problems that are relevant to statistics including optimization, numerical linear algebra, and random number generation. Later chapters introduce abstract data structures (ADTs) and parallel computing concepts. The appendices cover R and UNIX Shell programming.

Features

  • Includes numerous student exercises ranging from elementary to challenging
  • Integrates both C++ and R for the solution of statistical computing problems
  • Uses C++ code in R and R functions in C++ programs
  • Provides downloadable programs, available from the authors’ website

The translation of a mathematical problem into its computational analog (or analogs) is a skill that must be learned, like any other, by actively solving relevant problems. The text reveals the basic principles of algorithmic thinking essential to the modern statistician as well as the fundamental skill of communicating with a computer through the use of the computer languages C++ and R. The book lays the foundation for original code development in a research environment.

Global Expansion: Britain and its Empire, 1870-1914 (Pluto Critical History)
Global Expansion: Britain and its Empire, 1870-1914 (Pluto Critical History)
This short volume focuses upon the British empire and the development and growth of the country’s imperial system between 1870 and the outbreak of World War I, in the context of historically unprecedented global expansion by certain European powers. The British was incomparably the largest both in area and population of the European overseas...
Digital Filters: Principles and Applications with MATLAB (IEEE Series on Digital & Mobile Communication)
Digital Filters: Principles and Applications with MATLAB (IEEE Series on Digital & Mobile Communication)
The history of digital filters essentially began in the mid - 1970s, concurrent with the advent of the fi eld of study called digital signal processing (DSP). Over the ensuing 30 something years, digital filters have become both a facilitating and enabling technology. They serve as analog replacements as well as serving in unique...

Optical Switching and Networking Handbook
Before you begin to read this book, please take a moment to read these introductory comments. The title of the book may be misleading for many people:

For the engineering person, this may sound like the bible of optical networks and switching systems. Not so! This is not an engineering book and will not dig into the gory details of bits

Mapping Antarctica: A Five Hundred Year Record of Discovery (Springer Praxis Books)
Mapping Antarctica: A Five Hundred Year Record of Discovery (Springer Praxis Books)
Antarctica was to be the greatest discovery of them all! It was never to be a tripping over of a piece of useless land: the Greek philosophers had predicted a polar land- mass of geophysical importance! The question was rather whether or not man could bridge the "torrid equatorial zone" that was thought to separate the...
