Other volumes in the Wiley Series in Probability and Mathematical Statistics, Ralph A. Bradley, J. Stuart Hunter, David G. Kendall, & Geoffrey S. Watson, Advisory Editors Statistical Models in Applied Science Karl V. Bury Of direct interest to engineers and applied scientists, this book presents general principles of statistics and specific distribution methods and models. Prominent distribution properties and methods that are useful over a wide range of applications are covered in detail. The strengths and weaknesses of the distributional models are fully described, giving the reader a firm, intuitive approach to the selection of the model most appropriate to the problem at hand. 1975 656 pp. Fitting Equations To Data Computer Analysis of Multifactor Data for Scientists and Engineers Cuthbert Daniel & Fred S. Wood With the assistance of John W. Gorman The purpose of this book is to help the serious data analyst, scientist, or engineer with a computer to: recognize the strengths and limitations of his data; test the assumptions implicit in the least squares methods used to fit the data; select appropriate forms of the variables; judge which combinations of variables are most influential; and state the conditions under which the fitted equations are applicable. Throughout, mathematics is kept at the level of college algebra. 1971 342 pp. Methods for Statistical Analysis of Reliability And Life Data Nancy R. Mann, Ray E. Schafer & Nozer D. Singpurwalla This book introduces failure models commonly used in reliability analysis, and presents the most useful methods for analyzing the life data of these models. Highlights include: material on accelerated life testing; a comprehensive treatment of estimation and hypothesis testing; a critical survey of methods for system-reliability confidence bonds; and methods for simulation of life data and for testing fit. 1974 564 pp.

Author Information

About the Author Cuthbert Daniel, Consultant in Engineering Statistics, earned his B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, studying further at the University of Berlin in 1928 and at Harvard University, 1930-31. He has taught courses in design of experiments and industrial statistics at Columbia University and at the University of California, Berkeley. In the mid-40's he worked as a Statistician at the Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Manhattan Project, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Mr. Daniel has served as a consultant in statistics to the Research and Development Departments of several large corporations, including Procter and Gamble, United States Steel, General Foods, Interchemical, Standard Oil (Indiana), and Okonite. Mr. Daniel has been a consultant on design of experiments and analysis of engineering data to the Office of Air Polution, and to the Consumers Union. He was a member of Cancer Clinical Investigations Review Committee of NCI, and of NAS/NRC Committee on National Statistics. He is author (with F. S. Wood) of Fitting Equations to Data: Computer Analysis of Multifactor Data for Scientists And Engineers, published by Wiley-Interscience in 1971.
