              Resampling methods--techniques for repeatedly resampling data to obtain results--are being used in virtually every research area. This practical guide discusses the applications of these methods, especially in the areas of microarrays and data mining. Each chapter contains a weal...th of exercises along with R and Stata code. Written by a leading authority in the field, the text covers such topics as estimation, the bootstrap method, multivariate tests, decision trees, categorical data, multiple hypotheses, and model building.

              Distribution-free resampling methods-permutation tests, decision trees, and the bootstrap-are used today in virtually every research area. A Practitioner's Guide to Resampling for Data Analysis, Data Mining, and Modeling explains how to use the bootstrap to estimate the precision... of sample-based estimates and to determine sample size, data permutations to test hypotheses, and the readily-interpreted decision tree to replace arcane regression methods. Highlights Each chapter contains dozens of thought provoking questions, along with applicable R and Stata code Methods are illustrated with examples from agriculture, audits, bird migration, clinical trials, epidemiology, image processing, immunology, medicine, microarrays and gene selection Lists of commercially available software for the bootstrap, decision trees, and permutation tests are incorporated in the text Access to APL, MATLAB, and SC code for many of the routines is provided on the author's website The text covers estimation, two-sample and k-sample univariate, and multivariate comparisons of means and variances, sample size determination, categorical data, multiple hypotheses, and model building Statistics practitioners will find the methods described in the text easy to learn and to apply in a broad range of subject areas from A for Accounting, Agriculture, Anthropology, Aquatic science, Archaeology, Astronomy, and Atmospheric science to V for Virology and Vocational Guidance, and Z for Zoology. Practitioners and research workers and in the biomedical, engineering and social sciences, as well as advanced students in biology, business, dentistry, medicine, psychology, public health, sociology, and statistics will find an easily-grasped guide to estimation, testing hypotheses and model building.

              Divorce and the loss of his job have left Peter at the mercy of a series of psychologists. Teaching at an all-black college in the Deep South promises a new beginning. Within hours after pulling off the Interstate, Pete has an apartment, an answering service, and a new girl frien...d, Peri Mattox. But the presence of so many blacks makes him nervous. The woman whose job he's taking hasn't left yet and doesn't plan to. Senior faculty resent his existence. And his cover-your-ass boss makes it clear it's to be sink or swim. His position at the college seems increasingly temporary. Changes he thought he'd made to his department (accompanied by all the necessary signatures) never materialize. He turns to Peri for comfort, only to find she is leaving him for a woman. The opening chapter of this novel, an invocation, found Peters in the office of a psychiatrist. In the closing chapter, again in a psychiatrist's office, we view the events of the novel in a completely different light.

              John Kennedy was President when five young men, one of them white, sat in at a downtown New Orleans lunch counter. The same five sat in at the Tulane University cafeteria months later. The University didn't change its whites only policy, nor did Woolworth's, but in May 1961, the ...Parish School Board announced they would open the Orleans public school system to children of all races. Wood came to New Orleans on his motorcycle looking for adventure. The first night, he crashed a hotel wedding reception, hustled a Bourbon Street strip joint, was swept up in a police raid, got a part-time job as an animal caretaker, and met the women of his dreams-all three of them. For Wood, the integration movement is of no more interest than scenery glimpsed from a passing train, like a sit-in at a five and dime, a meeting of the Congress on Racial Equality, Leander Perez at the Civic Auditorium, a Citizen's Council fund raiser in the Garden District, and a riot at an elementary school.

              A year ago, Diana decided to return home, get a teaching credential, and work with kids as mixed up as herself. Going through the boxes in the garage, the stuff her family had been lugging around for as long as she could remember, she found a record of another dropout from anothe...r generation. Her father's Berkeley Barb articles were in those boxes, along with some short-story attempts, and the responses to Aimai Cristen's ad in the Barb's personal column. She wanted to discuss them. Her professor father was reluctant, afraid where their discussions might lead. Young attractive girl, 24, searching for love, compassion, joy from a man who can provide financial security.
