Multivariate Statistical Analysis
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.
Vector and matrix algebra; Groups and Jacobian of some transformations; Multivariate distributions and Invariance; Properties of multivariate distributions; Estimators of parameters and their functions; Basic multivariate sampling distributions; Tests of hypotheses of mean vectors; Tests concerning covariance matrices and mean vectors; Discriminant analysis; Principal components; Canonical correlations; Factor analysis.
This is the first book on multivariate analysis to look at large data sets which describes the state of the art in analyzing such data. Material such as database management systems is included that has never appeared in statistics books before.
The book presents multivariate statistical methods useful in geological analysis. The essential distinction between multivariate analysis as applied to full-space data (measurements on lengths, heights, breadths etc.) and compositional data is emphasized with particular reference to geochemical data. Each of the methods is accompanied by a practically oriented computer program and backed up by appropriate examples. The computer programs are provided on a compact disk together with trial data-sets and examples of the output. An important feature of this book is the graphical system developed by Dr. Savazzi which is entitled Graph Server. Geological data often deviate from ideal statistical requirements. For this reason, close attention has been paid to the analysis of data that contain atypical observations.
Multivariate Statistical Inference is a 10-chapter text that covers the theoretical and applied aspects of multivariate analysis, specifically the multivariate normal distribution using the invariance approach. Chapter I contains some special results regarding characteristic roots and vectors, and partitioned submatrices of real and complex matrices, as well as some special theorems on real and complex matrices useful in multivariate analysis. Chapter II deals with the theory of groups and related results that are useful for the development of invariant statistical test procedures, including the Jacobians of some specific transformations that are useful for deriving multivariate sampling distributions. Chapter III is devoted to basic notions of multivariate distributions and the principle of invariance in statistical testing of hypotheses. Chapters IV and V deal with the study of the real multivariate normal distribution through the probability density function and through a simple characterization and the maximum likelihood estimators of the parameters of the multivariate normal distribution and their optimum properties. Chapter VI tackles a systematic derivation of basic multivariate sampling distributions for the real case, while Chapter VII explores the tests and confidence regions of mean vectors of multivariate normal populations with known and unknown covariance matrices and their optimum properties. Chapter VIII is devoted to a systematic derivation of tests concerning covariance matrices and mean vectors of multivariate normal populations and to the study of their optimum properties. Chapters IX and X look into a treatment of discriminant analysis and the different covariance models and their analysis for the multivariate normal distribution. These chapters also deal with the principal components, factor models, canonical correlations, and time series. This book will prove useful to statisticians, mathematicians, and advance mathematics students.

Multivariate Statistical Methods: A Primer provides an introductory overview of multivariate methods without getting too deep into the mathematical details. This fourth edition is a revised and updated version of this bestselling introductory textbook. It retains the clear and concise style of the previous editions of the book and focuses on examples from biological and environmental sciences. The major update with this edition is that R code has been included for each of the analyses described, although in practice any standard statistical package can be used. The original idea with this book still applies. This was to make it as short as possible and enable readers to begin using multivariate methods in an intelligent manner. With updated information on multivariate analyses, new references, and R code included, this book continues to provide a timely introduction to useful tools for multivariate statistical analysis.
The three decades which have followed the publication of Heinz Neudecker's seminal paper `Some Theorems on Matrix Differentiation with Special Reference to Kronecker Products' in the Journal of the American Statistical Association (1969) have witnessed the growing influence of matrix analysis in many scientific disciplines. Amongst these are the disciplines to which Neudecker has contributed directly - namely econometrics, economics, psychometrics and multivariate analysis. This book aims to illustrate how powerful the tools of matrix analysis have become as weapons in the statistician's armoury. The majority of its chapters are concerned primarily with theoretical innovations, but all of them have applications in view, and some of them contain extensive illustrations of the applied techniques. This book will provide research workers and graduate students with a cross-section of innovative work in the fields of matrix methods and multivariate statistical analysis. It should be of interest to students and practitioners in a wide range of subjects which rely upon modern methods of statistical analysis. The contributors to the book are themselves practitioners of a wide range of subjects including econometrics, psychometrics, educational statistics, computation methods and electrical engineering, but they find a common ground in the methods which are represented in the book. It is envisaged that the book will serve as an important work of reference and as a source of inspiration for some years to come.
