Science and Method by Henri Poincaré Classic account of basic methodology and psychology of scientific discovery explains how scientists analyze and choose their working facts and explores the nature of experimentation, theory, and the mind. 1914 edition.
This popular and critically acclaimed text for undergraduate courses concentrates on the practical applications of statistics to biology. Its straightforward approach offers students with a minimal background in mathematics an accessible introduction to biostatistics. Worked-out examples appear throughout the book, illuminating highly relevant examples of solutions to problems in biological data analysis. The treatment progresses from descriptive statistics to fundamental distributions and the testing of elementary statistical hypotheses. It introduces the analysis of variance, presenting an in-depth survey that ranges from single-classification to two-way analysis of variance. Additional topics include regression, correlation, and analysis of frequencies. Numerous tables provide computational methods, from initial setup to final result, for solving a variety of biostatistical problems.
