Advanced Statistical Computing

by Roger D. Peng

2018-07-17

The book covers material taught in the Johns Hopkins Biostatistics Advanced Statistical Computing course. I taught this course off and on from 2003–2016 to upper level PhD students in Biostatistics. The course ran for 8 weeks each year, which is a fairly compressed schedule for material of this nature. Because of the short time frame, I felt the need to present material in a manner that assumed that students would often be using others’ software to implement these algorithms but that they would need to know what was going on underneath. In particular, should something go wrong with one of … Read more →

The preface gives some details about the author. The text is the joint product of the members of the Department of Data Theory of the Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Leiden. ‘Albert Gifi’ is their ‘nom de plume’.
