Populationgrowth, increasing land utilization and shrinking natural resources have led to anincreasing demand of improved efciency of existing technologies and thedevelopment of new ones. Additionally, growing complexities of societalfunctionalities and interdependencies among infrastructures and urban habitatsamplify consequences of malfunctions and failures. Malevolence, sustainabledevelopments and climatic changes have more recently been added to the list ofchallenges. Over the last decades, substantial progress has been made in assessingand quantifying risks. However, with regard to the broader utilization of riskassessment as a means for societal strategic and operational planning, there is still agreat need for further development.

The author focuseson non-absolute convergence in conjunction with random variation. Any conceptionor understanding of the random variation phenomenon hinges on the notions ofprobability and its mathematical representation in the form of probability distributionfunctions. The central and recurring theme throughout this book is that, providedthe use a non-absolute method of summation, every nitely additive, function ofdisjoint intervals is integrable. In contrast, more traditional methods in probabilitytheory exclude signicant classes of such functions whose integrability cannot beestablished whenever only absolute convergence is considered. An examplesincludes the Feynman "measure-which-is-not-a-measure" - the so-called probabilityamplitudes used in the Feynman path integrals of quantum mechanics.WileyA Practitioners Guide to Resamplingfor Data Analysis, Data Mining, and978143985550819.08.2011Oprawa: twarda 59,99Phillip I.

Even the two most popular, and most related, clustering methods-K-Means for partitioning and Wards method for hierarchical clustering-have lacked thetheoretical underpinning required to establish a rm relationship between the twomethods and relevant interpretation aids. Other approaches, such as spectralclustering or consensus clustering, are considered absolutely unrelated to eachother or to the two above mentioned methods. Clustering: A Data RecoveryApproach, Second Edition presents a unied modeling approach for the mostpopular clustering methods: the K-Means and hierarchical techniques, especially fordivisive clustering. It signicantly expands coverage of the mathematics of datarecovery, and includes a new chapter covering more recent popular networkclustering approaches-spectral, modularity and uniform, additive, and consensus-treated within the same data recovery approach.Taylor & FrancisComputation and Modelling inInsurance and Finance: An Introduction978052183048501.10.2013Oprawa: twarda 65,00Eric BolvikenFocusing on what actuaries need in practice, this introductory account providesreaders with essential tools for handling complex problems and explains howsimulation models can be created, used and re-used (with modications) in relatedsituations.

This numeraireapproach leads to simpler pricing options for complex products, such as barrier,lookback, quanto, and Asian options. Most of the ideas presented rely on intuitionand basic principles, rather than technical computations. The rst chapter of thebook introduces basic concepts of nance, including price, no arbitrage, portfolio,nancial contracts, the First Fundamental Theorem of Asset Pricing, and the changeof numeraire formula. Subsequent chapters apply these general principles to threekinds of models: binomial, diffusion, and jump models. The author uses the binomialmodel to illustrate the relativity of the reference asset. In continuous time, he coversboth diffusion and jump models in the evolution of price processes. The book alsodescribes term structure models and numerous options, including European, barrier,lookback, quanto, American, and Asian.Taylor & FrancisStochastic Financial Models978142009345220.01.2010Oprawa: twarda 46,99Douglas KennedyFilling the void between surveys of the eld with relatively light mathematical contentand books with a rigorous, formal approach to stochastic integration andprobabilistic ideas, Stochastic Financial Models provides a sound introduction tomathematical nance.

The relentless escalation of ination-adjusted cost perapproved medicine in the United States - from $200 million in 1950 to $1.2 billion in2010 - has driven industry giants to, at best, slavish imitation in drug design, and atworst, to abandonment of research and embracing of widespread fraud inconsumer marketing. The book adapts formalism across a number of disciplines tothe strategy for design of mutilevel interventions, focusing, rst, on molecular,cellular, and larger scale examples, and extending the argument to thesimplications provided by the dominant role of social and cultural structures andprocesses in individual and population patterns of health and illness. In place of"magic bullets", we must now apply "magic strategies" that act across both thescale and level of organization. This book provides an introductory roadmap to thenew tools that will be needed for the design of such strategies.World Scientic PublishingA Practical Guide to Cluster RandomisedTrials in Health Services Research978047051047603.02.2012Oprawa: twarda 50,00Sandra EldridgeCluster randomisedtrials are trials in which groups (or clusters) of individuals arerandomly allocated to different forms of treatment.

This might involve describing past variation, understandingthe mechanisms underlying observed changes, making projections of possiblefuture change, or monitoring the effect of intervening in some environmental system.This book provides an overview of modern statistical techniques that may berelevant in problems of this nature. Practitioners studying environmental change willbe familiar with many classical statistical procedures for the detection and estimationof trends. However, the ever increasing capacity to collect and process vastamounts of environmental information has led to growing awareness that suchprocedures are limited in the insights that they can deliver. At the same time,signicant developments in statistical methodology have often been widelydispersed in the statistical literature and have therefore received limited exposure inthe environmental science community.

As with writtenmaterial, there are almost always differences between the meaning of the originaltext and translated text. Additionally, many versions can be suggested, each withtheir advantages and disadvantages. Analysis of Questionnaire Data with Rtranslates certain classic research questions into statistical formulations. Asindicated in the title, the syntax of these statistical formulations is based on the well-known R language, chosen for its popularity, simplicity, and power of its structure.Although syntax is vital, understanding the semantics is the real challenge of anygood translation. In this book, the semantics of theoretical-to-practical translationemerges progressively from examples and experience, and occasionally frommathematical considerations. Sometimes the interpretation of a result is not clear,and there is no statistical tool really suited to the question at hand. Sometimes datasets contain errors, inconsistencies between answers, or missing data.Taylor & Francis 57.

Statystyka 65Tree-Based Graph PartitioningConstraint978184821303612.07.2011Oprawa: twarda 63,50Xavier LorcaCombinatorial problems based on graph partitioning enable us to mathematicallyrepresent and model many practical applications. Mission planning and the routingproblems occurring in logistics perfectly illustrate two such examples. Nevertheless,these problems are not based on the same partitioning pattern: generally, patternslike cycles, paths, or trees are distinguished. Moreover, the practical applications areoften not limited to theoretical problems like the Hamiltonian path problem, or K-node disjoint path problems. Indeed, they usually combine the graph partitioningproblem with several restrictions related to the topology of nodes and arcs. Thediversity of implied constraints in real-life applications is a practical limit to theresolution of such problems by approaches considering the partitioning problemindependently from each additional restriction. This book focuses on constraintsatisfaction problems related to tree partitioning problems enriched by severaladditional constraints that restrict the possible partitions topology. On the one hand,this title focuses on the structural properties of tree partitioning constraints.WileyUnderstanding Biplots: Methods andApplications of Biplots978047001255024.12.2010Oprawa: twarda 68,95John C.

EverittThe majority of data sets collected by researchers in all disciplines are multivariate,meaning that several measurements, observations, or recordings are taken on eachof the units in the data set. These units might be human subjects, archaeologicalartifacts, countries, or a vast variety of other things. In a few cases, it may besensible to isolate each variable and study it separately, but in most instances all thevariables need to be examined simultaneously in order to fully grasp the structureand key features of the data. For this purpose, one or another method ofmultivariate analysis might be helpful, and it is with such methods that this book islargely concerned. Multivariate analysis includes methods both for describing andexploring such data and for making formal inferences about them. The aim of all thetechniques is, in general sense, to display or extract the signal in the data in thepresence of noise and to nd out what the data show us in the midst of theirapparent chaos.SpringerAn Introduction to Bootstrap Methodswith Applications to R978047046704602.12.2011Oprawa: twarda 66,95Michael R.

It connects the objectives of research to the type ofexperimental design required, describes the actual process of creating the designand collecting the data, shows how to perform the proper analysis of the data, andillustrates the interpretation of results. Drawing on a variety of application areas, frompharmaceuticals to machinery, the book presents numerous examples ofexperiments and exercises that enable students to perform their own experiments.Harnessing the capabilities of SAS 9.2, it includes examples of SAS data stepprogramming and IML, along with procedures from SAS Stat, SAS QC, and SASOR. The text also shows how to display experimental results graphically using SAScodes graphics. The author emphasizes how the sample size, the assignment ofexperimental units to combinations of treatment factor levels (error control), and theselection of treatment factor combinations (treatment design) affect the resultingvariance and bias of estimates as well as the validity of conclusions.Taylor & FrancisDesign of Experiments: An IntroductionBased on Linear Models978158488923627.07.2010Oprawa: twarda 62,99Max MorrisOffering deep insight into the connections between design choice and the resultingstatistical analysis, Design of Experiments: An Introduction Based on Linear Modelsexplores how experiments are designed using the language of linear statisticalmodels. The book presents an organized framework for understanding the statisticalaspects of experimental design as a whole within the structure provided by generallinear models, rather than as a collection of seemingly unrelated solutions to uniqueproblems. The core material can be found in the rst thirteen chapters. Thesechapters cover a review of linear statistical models, completely randomized designs,randomized complete blocks designs, Latin squares, analysis of data fromorthogonally blocked designs, balanced incomplete block designs, random blockeffects, split-plot designs, and two-level factorial experiments. The remainder of thetext discusses factorial group screening experiments, regression model design, andan introduction to optimal design. To emphasize the practical value of design, mostchapters contain a short example of a real-world experiment.Taylor & FrancisDesign of Observational Studies978144191212106.11.2009Oprawa: twarda 76,95Paul R. RosenbaumAn observational study is an empiric investigation of effects caused by treatmentswhen randomized experimentation is unethical or infeasible. Observational studiesare common in most elds that study the effects of treatments on people, includingmedicine, economics, epidemiology, education, psychology, political science andsociology. The quality and strength of evidence provided by an observational studyis determined largely by its design. Design of Observational Studies is both anintroduction to statistical inference in observational studies and a detailed discussionof the principles that guide the design of observational studies. Design ofObservational Studies is divided into four parts. Chapters 2, 3, and 5 of Part I coverconcisely, in about one hundred pages, many of the ideas discussed inRosenbaums Observational Studies (also published by Springer) but in a lesstechnical fashion. Part II discusses the practical aspects of using propensity scoresand other tools to create a matched comparison that balances many covariates.Part II includes a chapter on matching in R.SpringerDirichlet and Related Distributions978047068819913.04.2011Oprawa: twarda 257,00Kai Wang NgThe Dirichlet distribution appears in many areas of application, which includemodelling of compositional data, Bayesian analysis, statistical genetics, andnonparametric inference.

This book reveals the relation between theasymptotic behaviour of M-estimators and the complexity of parameter space.Virtually all results are proved using only elementary ideas developed within thebook; there is minimal recourse to abstract theoretical results. To make the resultsconcrete, a detailed treatment is presented for two important examples of M-estimation, namely maximum likelihood and least squares. The theory also coversestimation methods using penalties and sieves. Many illustrative examples are given,including the Grenander estimator, estimation of functions of bounded variation,smoothing splines, partially linear models, mixture models and image analysis.Graduate students and professionals in statistics as well as those with an interest inapplications, to such areas as econometrics, medical statistics, etc., will welcomethis treatment.Cambridge University PressEssentials of Statistical Inference978052154866329.03.2010Oprawa: mikka 21,99G.A.

It covers Markovchains in discrete and continuous time, Poisson processes, renewal processes,martingales, and mathematical nance. One can only learn a subject by seeing it inaction, so there are a large number of examples and more than 300 carefully chosenexercises to deepen the reader,s understanding The book has undergone athorough revision since the rst edition. There are many new examples andproblems with solutions that use the TI-83 to eliminate the tedious details of solvinglinear equations by hand. Some material that was too advanced for the level hasbeen eliminated while the treatment of other topics useful for applications has beenexpanded. In addition, the ordering of topics has been improved. For example, thedifcult subject of martingales is delayed until its usefulness can be seen in thetreatment of mathematical nance.

SmallAsymptotic methods provide important tools for approximating and analysingfunctions that arise in probability and statistics. Moreover, the conclusions ofasymptotic analysis often supplement the conclusions obtained by numericalmethods. Providing a broad toolkit of analytical methods, Expansions andAsymptotics for Statistics shows how asymptotics, when coupled with numericalmethods, becomes a powerful way to acquire a deeper understanding of thetechniques used in probability and statistics.The book rst discusses the role of expansions and asymptotics in statistics, thebasic properties of power series and asymptotic series, and the study of rationalapproximations to functions. With a focus on asymptotic normality and asymptoticefciency of standard estimators, it covers various applications, such as the use ofthe delta method for bias reduction, variance stabilisation, and the construction ofnormalising transformations, as well as the standard theory derived from the work ofR.A. Fisher, H. Cramr, L. Le Cam, and others. The book then examines the closeconnection between saddle-point approximation and the Laplace method.Taylor & FrancisFisher, Neyman, and the Creation ofClassical Statistics978144199499803.08.2011Oprawa: mikka 26,95Erich L. LehmannClassical statistical theory-hypothesis testing, estimation, and the design ofexperiments and sample surveys-is mainly the creation of two men: Ronald A.Fisher (1890-1962) and Jerzy Neyman (1894-1981). Their contributions sometimescomplemented each other, sometimes occurred in parallel, and, particularly at laterstages, often were in strong opposition. The two men would not be pleased to seetheir names linked in this way, since throughout most of their working lives theydetested each other. Nevertheless, they worked on the same problems, andthrough their combined efforts created a new discipline. This new book by E.L.Lehmann, himself a student of Neymans, explores the relationship betweenNeyman and Fisher, as well as their interactions with other inuential statisticians,and the statistical history they helped create together. Lehmann uses directcorrespondence and original papers to recreate an historical account of the creationof the Neyman-Pearson Theory as well as Fishers dissent, and other importantstatistical theories.SpringerFrequency Curves and Correlation978110760129130.06.2011Oprawa: mikka 16,99William Palin EldertonOriginally published in 1906 by C. & E.

The absolute sum of autocorrelations of suchprocesses diverges and their spectral density at the origin is unbounded. This isunlike the so-called weakly dependent processes, where autocorrelations tend tozero exponentially fast and the spectral density is bounded at the origin. In a longmemory process, the dependence between the current observation and the one ata distant future is persistent; whereas in the weakly dependent processes, theseobservations are approximately independent. This fact alone is enough to warn aperson about the validity of the classical inference procedures based on the squareroot of the sample size standardization when data are generated by a long-termmemory process. The aim of this volume is to provide a text at the graduate levelfrom which one can learn, in a concise fashion, some basic theory and techniquesof proving limit theorems for numerous statistics based on long memory processes.World Scientic PublishingLarge-Scale Inference978110761967829.11.2012Oprawa: mikka 24,99Bradley EfronWe live in a new age for statistical inference, where modern scientic technologysuch as microarrays and fMRI machines routinely produce thousands andsometimes millions of parallel data sets, each with its own estimation or testingproblem. Doing thousands of problems at once is more than repeated application ofclassical methods. Taking an empirical Bayes approach, Bradley Efron, inventor ofthe bootstrap, shows how information accrues across problems in a way thatcombines Bayesian and frequentist ideas. Estimation, testing and prediction blend inthis framework, producing opportunities for new methodologies of increased power.New difculties also arise, easily leading to awed inferences. This book takes acareful look at both the promise and pitfalls of large-scale statistical inference, withparticular attention to false discovery rates, the most successful of the newstatistical techniques.

This book collects and compares current results - mostlystrong theorems which describe the properties of a random walk. The modernproblems of the limit theorems of probability theory are treated in the simple case ofcoin tossing. Taking advantage of this simplicity, the reader is familiarized with limittheorems (especially strong ones) without the burden of technical tools anddifculties. An easy way of considering the Wiener process is also given, through thestudy of the random walk. Since the rst and second editions were published in1990 and 2005, a number of new results have appeared in the literature. The rsttwo editions contained many unsolved problems and conjectures which have sincebeen settled; this third, revised and enlarged edition includes those new results. Inthis edition, a completely new part is included concerning Simple Random Walks onGraphs. Properties of random walks on several concrete graphs have been studiedin the last decade. Some of the obtained results are also presented.World Scientic PublishingRegression Analysis by Example978047090584505.10.2012Oprawa: twarda 83,50Samprit ChatterjeePraise for the Fourth Edition: "This book is excellent source of examples forregression analysis. It has been and still is readily readable and understandable." --Journal of the American Statistical Association Regression analysis is a conceptuallysimple method for investigating relationships among variables.

FreedmanDavid A. Freedman presents here a denitive synthesis of his approach to causalinference in the social sciences. He explores the foundations and limitations ofstatistical modeling, illustrating basic arguments with examples from politicalscience, public policy, law, and epidemiology. Freedman maintains that many newtechnical approaches to statistical modeling constitute not progress, but regress.Instead, he advocates a shoe leather methodology, which exploits natural variationto mitigate confounding and relies on intimate knowledge of the subject matter todevelop meticulous research designs and eliminate rival explanations. WhenFreedman rst enunciated this position, he was met with scepticism, in partbecause it was hard to believe that a mathematical statistician of his stature wouldfavor low-tech approaches. But the tide is turning. Many social scientists nowagree that statistical technique cannot substitute for good research design andsubject matter knowledge.

G. QuinnMany electronic and acoustic signals can be modelled as sums of sinusoids andnoise. However, the amplitudes, phases and frequencies of the sinusoids are oftenunknown and must be estimated in order to characterise the periodicity or near-periodicity of a signal and consequently to identify its source. This 2001 bookpresents and analyses several practical techniques used for such estimation. Theproblem of tracking slow frequency changes over time of a very noisy sinusoid isalso considered. Rigorous analyses are presented via asymptotic or large sampletheory, together with physical insight. The book focuses on achieving extremelyaccurate estimates when the signal to noise ratio is low but the sample size is large.Each chapter begins with a detailed overview, and many applications are given.Matlab code for the estimation techniques is also included. The book will thus serveas an excellent introduction and reference for researchers analysing such signals.Cambridge University PressThe Practitioners Guide to Statistics andLean Six Sigma for Process Improvements978047011494028.01.2010Oprawa: twarda 98,95Mikel J.

HaasThe decision to implement environmental protection options is a political one. These,and other political and social decisions affect the balance of the ecosystem and howthe point of equilibrium desired is to be reached. This book develops a stochastic,temporal model of how political processes inuence and are inuenced byecosystem processes and looks at how to nd the most politically feasible plan formanaging an at-risk ecosystem. Finding such a plan is accomplished by rst tting amechanistic political and ecological model to a data set composed of observationson both political actions that impact an ecosystem and variables that describe theecosystem. The parameters of this tted model are perturbed just enough to causehuman behaviour to change so that desired ecosystem states occur. This perturbedmodel gives the ecosystem management plan needed to reach desired ecosystemstates. To construct such a set of interacting models, topics from political science,ecology, probability, and statistics are developed and explored. Key features:Explores politically feasible ways to manage at-risk ecosystems. Gives agent-basedmodels of how social groups affect ecosystems through time.Wiley 103.

Obtaining high response rates is sometimes difcult andexpensive, but clearly plays a benecial role in terms of improving data quality. It isbecoming increasingly clear, however, that simply boosting response to achieve ahigher response rate will not in itself eradicate nonresponse bias. In this book theauthors argue that high response rates should not be seen as a goal in themselves,but rather as part of an overall survey quality strategy based on random probabilitysampling and aimed at minimising nonresponse bias.Key features of Improving Survey Response: A detailed coverage of nonresponse issues, including a unique examination ofcross-national survey nonresponse processes and outcomes.

Whiletraditionally understood statistical models relate to data generating processes whichpresuppose facts, this book focuses on analytical models which relate to substantialprocesses generating social facts. It formally develops individual-level, population-level, and multilevel versions of such models and uses these models as frameworksfor the denition of notions of functional causality. The book further develops adistinction between the representation of states and events, which is then used toformally distinguish between comparative and dynamic notions of causality. It isshown that, due to the involvement of human actors in substantial processesconsidered in social research, the conceptual framework of randomized experimentsis of only limited use. Instead, modelling selection processes should become anexplicit task of social research.Taylor & FrancisModern Analysis of Customer Surveys:with Applications Using R978047097128406.01.2012Oprawa: twarda 65,00Ron KenettCustomer survey studies deals with customers, consumers and user satisfactionfrom a product or service.

Andries van der ArkCategorical data are quantied as either nominal variables--distinguishing differentgroups, for example, based on socio-economic status, education, and politicalpersuasion--or ordinal variables--distinguishing levels of interest, such as thepreferred politician or the preferred type of punishment for committing burglary. Thisnew book is a collection of up-to-date studies on modern categorical data analysismethods, emphasizing their application to relevant and interesting data sets. Thisvolume concentrates on latent class analysis and item response theory. Thesemethods use latent variables to explain the relationships among observedcategorical variables. Latent class analysis yields the classication of a group ofrespondents according to their pattern of scores on the categorical variables. Thisprovides insight into the mechanisms producing the data and allows the estimationof factor structures and regression models conditional on the latent class structure.Item response theory leads to the identication of one or more ordinal or intervalscales.

This has led to an emphasis on voice and speaking out in the researchendeavour. Moments of secrecy and silence are less often addressed. This givesrise to a number of questions. What are the silences, secrets, omissions and andpolitical consequences of such moments? What particular dilemmas andconstraints do they represent or entail? What are their implications for researchpraxis? Are such moments always indicative of voicelessness or powerlessness? Ormay they also constitute a productive moment in the research encounter?Contributors to this volume were invited to reect on these questions. The resultingchapters are a fascinating collection of insights into the research process, making animportant contribution to theoretical and empirical debates about epistemology,subjectivity and identity in research.

However, what we choose to count, what we choose not to count, whodoes the counting, and the categories and values we choose to apply whencounting, matter. This volume addresses the ways in which statistics and numbersare gathered and applied in social science research. The contributors argue that wemust become more aware of the power and the limitations of statistics. Learningstatistics needs to be about more than simply mastering the techniques of using thetool; it needs to also be about learning the dangers of that tool and learning tocontrol it within social and ethical bounds. These dangers lie in the routines throughwhich statistics are applied; the discourses from which they emerge and into whichthey are deployed; the power relations created by those discourses; and theassumptions, meanings, and categories statistics carry with them in thosediscourses. This volume will be necessary reading for students and scholars usingquantitative data within the social sciences.Taylor & FrancisThe Research Journey: Introduction toInquiry978146250512808.05.2012Oprawa: mikka 23,99Sharon F. RallisDesigned to foster "inquiry-mindedness," this book prepares graduate students todevelop a conceptual framework and conduct inquiry projects that are linked toongoing conversations in a eld. The authors examine different ways of knowing andshow how to identify a research question; build arguments and support them withevidence; make informed design decisions; engage in reective, ethical practices;and produce a written proposal or report. Each chapter opens with a set of criticalquestions, followed by a dialogue among ve ctional graduate students exploringquestions and concerns about their own inquiry projects; these issues are revisitedthroughout the chapter. Other useful features include end-of-chapter learningactivities for individual or group use.Useful pedagogical features include:Framing questions for exploration and reectionChapter-opening dialogues that bring in perspectives from multiple disciplinesExample boxes with detailed cases and questions for the readerTaylor & FrancisThe Visualisation of Spatial SocialStructure978111996293903.08.2012Oprawa: twarda 27,50Danny DorlingHow do you draw a map of 100,000 places, of more than a million ows of people,of changes over time and space, of different kinds of spaces, surfaces and volumes,from human travel time to landscapes of hopes, fears, migration, manufacturing andmortality? How do you turn the millions of numbers concerning some of the mostimportant moments of our lives into images that allow us to appreciate theaggregate while still remembering the detail? The visualization of spatial socialstructure means, literally, making visible the geographical patterns to the way ourlives have come to be socially organized, seeing the geography in society. To astatistical readership visualization implies using data. More widely dened it impliesfreeing our imaginations. "The Visualization of Spatial Social Structure" introducesthe reader to new ways of thinking about how to look at social statistics, particularlythose about people in places. The author presents a unique combination ofstatistical focus and understanding of social structures and innovations invisualization, describing the rationale for, and development of, a new way ofvisualizing information in geographical research.WileyTheory Construction and Model-building Skills978160623340526.02.2010Oprawa: twarda 43,99James JaccardMeeting a crucial need for graduate students and newly minted researchers, thisinnovative text provides hands-on tools for generating ideas and translating theminto formal theories.

MurphyThis volume presents the rst wide-ranging critical review of validity generalization(VG)--a method that has dominated the eld since the publication of Schmidt andHunters (1977) paper "Development of a General Solution to the Problem of ValidityGeneralization." This paper and the work that followed had a profound impact onthe science and practice of applied psychology. The research suggests thatfundamental relationships among tests and criteria, and the constructs theyrepresent are simpler and more regular than they appear. Looking at the history ofthe VG model and its impact on personnel psychology, top scholars and leadingresearchers of the eld review the accomplishments of the model, as well as thecontinuing controversies. Several chapters signicantly extend the maximumlikelihood estimation with existing models for meta analysis and VG. Reviewing 25years of progress in the eld, this volume shows how the model can be extendedand applied to new problems and domains. This book will be important toresearchers and graduate students in the areas of industrial organizationalpsychology and statistics.Taylor & FrancisWhen to Use What Research Design978146250353706.04.2012Oprawa: mikka 26,99W.
