Information and resources for students and users of statistical analysis of data.

For information about e-books accessible through the Library, please see the following library resource guides : -

There are also a few electronic textbooks, available freely on the web, which might be of interest: -

- The Electronic Statistics Textbook (http://www.statsoft.com/textbook/stathome.html ) has comprehensive discussions of a wide range of topics, and an excellent glossary; while the
- Engineering Statistics Handbook (http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/ ) has much information on applications to engineering.
- The Probability and statistics EBook (http://wiki.stat.ucla.edu/socr/index.php/EBook ) is also a textbook, mainly on Statistics. Note that it is a wiki, so you might need to verify the information elsewhere.

Once you find a good book in the library catalogue, click on the **subject **links at the bottom of the record to find more items on that topic, e.g.

**Mathematical statistics.****Sampling(Statistics).****Analysis of variance.****Multivariate analysis.****Regression analysis.****Probabilities.****Statistical decision****Bayesian Statistical decision theory.****Statistical hypothesis testing.****Survival analysis (Biometry).****Experimental design****Time-series analysis.**

For applications of statistics in a particular subject or discipline, you can also use the subject name + the term Statistical methods, e.g. Engineering - statistical methods.
