The second edition of Statistics for Experimenters focuses on applications in the physical, engineering, biological, and social sciences. From the beginning, the book's source of ideas is the scientific method itself and the need of the investigator to make his or her research as effective as possible through proper choice and conduct of experiments and appropriate analysis of data. After a problem is stated, appropriate statistical methods of design and analysis are discussed. And frequently, examples are presented for which standard mathematical assumptions are wrong, thus forcing the reader's attention onto the essential precautions necessary in the conduct of the experiment to ensure valid conclusions.
