Multivariate Statistical Simulation Mark E. Johnson For the researcher in statistics, probability, and operations research involved in the design and execution of a computer-aided simulation study utilizing continuous multivariate distributions, this book considers the properties of such distributions from a unique perspective. With enhancing graphics (three-dimensional and contour plots), it presents generation algorithms revealing features of the distribution undisclosed in preliminary algebraic manipulations. Well-known multivariate distributions covered include normal mixtures, elliptically assymmetric, Johnson translation, Khintine, and Burr-Pareto-logistic. 1987 (0 471-82290-6) 230 pp. Aspects of Multivariate Statistical Theory Robb J. Muirhead A classical mathematical treatment of the techniques, distributions, and inferences based on the multivariate normal distributions. The main focus is on distribution theory—both exact and asymptotic. Introduces three main areas of current activity overlooked or inadequately covered in existing texts: noncentral distribution theory, decision theoretic estimation of the parameters of a multivariate normal distribution, and the uses of spherical and elliptical distributions in multivariate analysis. 1982 (0 471-09442-0) 673 pp. Multivariate Observations G. A. F. Seber This up-to-date, comprehensive sourcebook treats data-oriented techniques and classical methods. It concerns the external analysis of differences among objects, and the internal analysis of how the variables measured relate to one another within objects. The scope ranges from the practical problems of graphically representing high dimensional data to the theoretical problems relating to matrices of random variables. 1984 (0 471-88104-X) 686 pp.
This comprehensive text introduces readers to the most commonly used multivariate techniques at an introductory, non-technical level. By focusing on the fundamentals, readers are better prepared for more advanced applied pursuits, particularly on topics that are most critical to the behavioral, social, and educational sciences. Analogies between the already familiar univariate statistics and multivariate statistics are emphasized throughout. The authors examine in detail how each multivariate technique can be implemented using SPSS and SAS and Mplus in the book’s later chapters. Important assumptions are discussed along the way along with tips for how to deal with pitfalls the reader may encounter. Mathematical formulas are used only in their definitional meaning rather than as elements of formal proofs. A book specific website - www.psypress.com/applied-multivariate-analysis - provides files with all of the data used in the text so readers can replicate the results. The Appendix explains the data files and its variables. The software code (for SAS and Mplus) and the menu option selections for SPSS are also discussed in the book. The book is distinguished by its use of latent variable modeling to address multivariate questions specific to behavioral and social scientists including missing data analysis and longitudinal data modeling. Ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in the behavioral, social, and educational sciences, this book will also appeal to researchers in these disciplines who have limited familiarity with multivariate statistics. Recommended prerequisites include an introductory statistics course with exposure to regression analysis and some familiarity with SPSS and SAS.
The majority of data sets collected by researchers in all disciplines are multivariate, meaning that several measurements, observations, or recordings are taken on each of the units in the data set. These units might be human subjects, archaeological artifacts, countries, or a vast variety of other things. In a few cases, it may be sensible to isolate each variable and study it separately, but in most instances all the variables need to be examined simultaneously in order to fully grasp the structure and key features of the data. For this purpose, one or another method of multivariate analysis might be helpful, and it is with such methods that this book is largely concerned. Multivariate analysis includes methods both for describing and exploring such data and for making formal inferences about them. The aim of all the techniques is, in general sense, to display or extract the signal in the data in the presence of noise and to find out what the data show us in the midst of their apparent chaos. An Introduction to Applied Multivariate Analysis with R explores the correct application of these methods so as to extract as much information as possible from the data at hand, particularly as some type of graphical representation, via the R software. Throughout the book, the authors give many examples of R code used to apply the multivariate techniques to multivariate data.

Multivariate data appear in all scientific fields of investigation and the study of multivariate analysis has become central to the discipline of data science. Not only is it part of the statistical education curriculum but it is also an essential tool for applied scientists in their research work. An Introduction to Multivariate Data Analysis clearly explains how to successfully reduce a large and complex set of data with many variables to a manageable new formulation where information, structure and underlying patterns are more clearly revealed.
This book enables readers who may not be familiar with matrices to understand a variety of multivariate analysis procedures in matrix forms. Another feature of the book is that it emphasizes what model underlies a procedure and what objective function is optimized for fitting the model to data. The author believes that the matrix-based learning of such models and objective functions is the fastest way to comprehend multivariate data analysis. The text is arranged so that readers can intuitively capture the purposes for which multivariate analysis procedures are utilized: plain explanations of the purposes with numerical examples precede mathematical descriptions in almost every chapter. This volume is appropriate for undergraduate students who already have studied introductory statistics. Graduate students and researchers who are not familiar with matrix-intensive formulations of multivariate data analysis will also find the book useful, as it is based on modern matrix formulations with a special emphasis on singular value decomposition among theorems in matrix algebra. The book begins with an explanation of fundamental matrix operations and the matrix expressions of elementary statistics, followed by the introduction of popular multivariate procedures with advancing levels of matrix algebra chapter by chapter. This organization of the book allows readers without knowledge of matrices to deepen their understanding of multivariate data analysis.
This book provides a broad overview of the basic theory and methods of applied multivariate analysis.

All examples are analyzed using SAS for Windows Version 8.0.
Select the Optimal Model for Interpreting Multivariate Data Introduction to Multivariate Analysis: Linear and Nonlinear Modeling shows how multivariate analysis is widely used for extracting useful information and patterns from multivariate data and for understanding the structure of random phenomena. Along with the basic concepts of various procedures in traditional multivariate analysis, the book covers nonlinear techniques for clarifying phenomena behind observed multivariate data. It primarily focuses on regression modeling, classification and discrimination, dimension reduction, and clustering. The text thoroughly explains the concepts and derivations of the AIC, BIC, and related criteria and includes a wide range of practical examples of model selection and evaluation criteria. To estimate and evaluate models with a large number of predictor variables, the author presents regularization methods, including the L1 norm regularization that gives simultaneous model estimation and variable selection. For advanced undergraduate and graduate students in statistical science, this text provides a systematic description of both traditional and newer techniques in multivariate analysis and machine learning. It also introduces linear and nonlinear statistical modeling for researchers and practitioners in industrial and systems engineering, information science, life science, and other areas.

This book is an introduction to the principles and methodology of modern multivariate statistical analysis. It is written for the user and potential user of multivariate techniques as well as for postgraduate students coming to the subject for the first time. The author's emphasis is problem-oriented; he stresses geometrical intuition in preference to algebraic manipulation. Mathematical sections which are not essential for a practical understanding of technique are clearly indicated so they may be skipped by nonspecialists. The book covers recent developments concerning discrete and mixed variable techniques, as well as continuous variable techniques and other new ideas. This is an up-to-date and very readable account--with a practical emphasis--for research workers in subjects as diverse as anthropology, education, industry, medicine, and taxonomy.
Attention is focused on the supraindividual biological level in example plant ecology, phytosociology and taxonomy.
This book provides full coverage of the wide range of multivariate topics that graduate students across the social and behavioral sciences encounter, using a conceptual, non-mathematical, approach.
