Author Saville, David J. author Statistical Methods [electronic resource] : A Geometric Primer / by David J. Saville, Graham R. Wood New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer, 1996 http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4612-0747-4 XI, 268 p. online resource

SUMMARY

The aim of this book is to present the mathematics underlying elementary statistical methods in as simple a manner as possible. These methods include independent and paired sample t-tests, analysis of variance, regression, and the analysis of covariance. The author's principle tool is the use of geometric ideas to provide more visual insight and to make the theory accessible to a wider audience than is usually possible
