SUMMARY

Permutation tests permit us to choose the test statistic best suited to the task at hand. This freedom of choice opens up a thousand practical applications, including many which are beyond the reach of conventional parametric staยญ tistics. Flexible, robust in the face of missing data and violations of assumpยญ tions, the permutation test is among the most powerful of statistical proceยญ dures. Through sample size reduction, permutation tests can reduce the costs of experiments and surveys. This text on the application of permutation tests in biology, medicine, science, and engineering may be used as a step-by-step self-guiding reference manual by research workers and as an intermediate text for undergraduates and graduates in statistics and the applied sciences with a first course in statistics and probability under their belts. Research workers in the applied sciences are advised to read through Chapters 1 and 2 once quickly before proceeding to Chapters 3 through 8 which cover the principal applications they are likely to encounter in practice. Chapter 9 is a must for the practitioner, with advice for coping with realยญ life emergencies such as missing or censored data, after-the-fact covariates, and outliers. Chapter 10 uses practical applications in archeology, biology, climatology, education and social science to show the research worker how to develop new permutation statistics to meet the needs of specific applications. The practitioner will find Chapter 10 a source of inspiration as well as a practical guide to the development of new and novel statistics
