Description:

Written to convey an intuitive feel for both theory and practice, its main objective is to illustrate what a powerful tool density estimation can be when used not only with univariate and bivariate data but also in the higher dimensions of trivariate and quadrivariate information. Major concepts are presented in the context of a histogram in order to simplify the treatment of advanced estimators. Features 12 four-color plates, numerous graphic illustrations as well as a multitude of problems and solutions.

Richard M. Talman is Professor of Physics at Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. After receiving B.A and M.A. at the University of Western Ontario, he received his Ph.D. at the California Institute of Technology in 1963. Since then he has been at Cornell, accepting a full professorship for Physics in 1971. He has spent terms as visiting scientist at Stanford(2), CERN(2), Berkeley(2) and Saskatchewan, and served as leader of the Instrumentation and Diagnostics Group at the SSC project in Dallas. He has given courses on accelerators at Chicago, Austin, Rice, and Yale. Initially a particle physics experimentalist, Professor Talman has been engaged in the design of a series of accelerators, with recent emphasis on their use for x-ray production.
