As with the bestselling first edition, "Computational Statistics Handbook with MATLAB" makes computational statistics as accessible as possible by playing down theory and building an understanding of the algorithms used in a wide range of applications. This second edition recognizes the new functionality of the MATLAB[registered] statistics toolbox and other updates like the new plotting capabilities of version 7.0. It includes a discussion of GUI functionality and expanded coverage of topics such as support vector machines, bagging, boosting, and random forests in pattern recognition. The text also features updated and new problem sets, data sets, exercises, and an appendix containing answers to selected problems.
