Concise encyclopedia of mathematics

Upon ebook, the 1st version of the CRC Concise Encyclopedia of arithmetic obtained overwhelming accolades for its exceptional scope, clarity, and software. It quickly took its position one of the most sensible promoting books within the historical past of Chapman & Hall/CRC, and its recognition keeps unabated. but additionally unabated has been the commitment of writer Eric Weisstein to amassing, cataloging, and referencing mathematical proof, formulation, and definitions.

On the other hand, these quantities can be very sensitive to "wild" observations ( "outliers" ) and may indicate association when, in fact, little exists. In spite of these shortcomings, covariance and correlation coefficients are routinely calculated and analyzed. They provide cogent numerical summaries of as­ sociation when the data do not exhibit obvious nonlinear patterns of association and when wild observations are not present. Suspect observations must be accounted for by correcting obvious recording mistakes and by taking actions consistent with the identified causes.

In Chapter 3, we show how the closeness of points in n dimensions can be re­ lated to measures of association between the corresponding variables. 4 DATA D I SPLAYS AN D PI CTORIAL REPRESENTATI O N S The rapid development o f powerful personal computers and workstations has led to a proliferation of sophisticated statistical software for data analysis and graphics. It is often possible, for example, to sit at one ' s desk and examine the nature of multidi­ mensional data with clever computer-generated pictures.

Comparing Figures 1 . 2, we find that the marginal dot diagrams are the same, but that the scatter diagrams are decidedly different. X1 , x2 , s1 1 , and s22 remain unchanged, but the sample covariance s1 2 , which measures the association between pairs of variables, will now be negative. The different orientations of the data in Figures 1 . 2 are not discernible from the marginal dot diagrams alone. At the same time, the fact that the marginal dot diagrams are the same in the two cases is not immediately apparent from the scatter plots.
