Part III: I took a convenience sample of 32 participants 18 MD students; 14 clinicians from two separate classes at McMaster University during the month of January The participants were presented with a single page to rate the helpfulness and easiness to understand of the definitions of five terms that I considered to be among commonly used terms in clinical or epidemiological research on the scale of 1 to 7 for helpfulness: They were not told where the definitions came from or about the purpose of the exercise.

Table 1 shows the summary of descriptive statistics. It is important to note this is not based on a probability sample and therefore the results need to be interpreted with caution. For helpfulness, the median ratings vary from 4. Risk Factor 32 4. Risk Factor 31 2. Confounder 31 4. Confounder 32 3. Efficacy 31 4. Efficacy 32 3. Hazard Ratio 32 4. Hazard Ratio 32 3.

Part IV: Overall, this second edition has made attempts to address some of the suggestions raised in reviews of the first edition. First, it is a good resource to have for a quick reference for many statistical terms that would certainly not be familiar to clinicians and MD students.

Third, the price is quite reasonable.

This is one of the most commonly used words in clinical studies. It would be a worthwhile purchase for any health sciences library. References [1] Everitt, B.

Processus ponctuels spatiaux. English version Written by ten or so authors among the greatest specialists in their respective fields, this book lies somewhere between classical monographs and conference proceedings. It provides an excellent synthesis that bridges methods of spatial analysis point processes and spatial autoregressive models and geostatistics. Emphasis is put on theoretical aspects of the methods, so relatively few examples are present.

Being a collective work, some repetitions and lack of ties between groups of chapters are unavoidable. Box, Norman R.

This is the second edition of a well-known book by the same authors entitled Empirical Model Building and Response Surfaces, first published in There is much new material and in particular an increased emphasis on ridge analysis and its development. This is the interpretation of second-degree response surfaces by reduction to canonical form, that is by reducing the second degree portion to principal axes. Extensions include provision for constraints, as, for example, in mixture experiments.

The general characteristics of the book will be known in advance to many readers. These include strong emphasis on subject-matter motivation and on the limitations of formal specifica- tions.

There is meticulous explanation of underlying theoretical notions at a relatively elementary theoretical level with extensive use of matrix algebra supplemented by geometrical interpretation and motivation. There are a large number of intrinsically interesting real applications and many more as exercises for students.

Outline answers to these take up over pages and there is a bibliography of almost the same length, these two sections partly accounting for the considerable length of the book. The emphasis is on experimentation in the process industries. While much of the discussion is implicitly at least of very broad interest the concern is with situations in which random variability is relatively small, so that experiments with quite a small number of runs are valuable. Also the highly appropriate emphasis on the iterative nature of enquiry is most immediately relevant when results can be obtained relatively quickly.

Finally the stress throughout is on the response surface relating expected outcome to factor levels quantitatively specified, that is on the surface itself rather than the contribution of individual factors. While the general principles of experimental design are very broadly applicable it is these three features that give the present discussion its special flavour.

This is an authoritative and lucid account of an important field. It will be an important reference source.

This volume contains papers presented at a conference held in Woodstock, Vermont, 22—23 October The various papers explore the different kind of risks facing financial institutions and examine methods that can be used to measure and predict risk. Each paper is followed by a Comment and a summary of the discussion. The banking sector has changed dramatically over the past quarter century, revolutionized by computer technology, the derivatives market, and new kinds of participants, such as hedge funds.

These changes have led to new perceptions of the kinds of risks facing the sector, and to substantial changes in financial risk management strategies. In particular, a maturing taxonomy of risks is developing, including market risk, credit risk, and operational risk all with highly a developed understanding , liquidity risk, strategic risk, and business risk less highly developed , and model risk and systemic risk.

Of course, any collection of papers must inevitably be somewhat heterogeneous. It would provide excellent supplementary reading for a course on risk in the financial sector.

Mathematical proof and its discontents She apparently exists in reality, since the author says that her name has been changed. Because Christina is married to a mathematician, she wants to know more about mathematics and therefore writes to the author two letters, containing several questions on this topic.

Why does not she ask her husband about them? The first question is: Then the first hit would be from Wikipedia: Why is mathematics difficult, and why do I spontaneously react negatively when I hear the word?

The main part of the book is a further elaboration of themes discussed in this dialogue. Quoting the author: It consists of a number of loosely linked essays that may be read independently and for which I have tried to provide a leitmotif by throwing light on the relationship between mathematics and common sense.

This book has a heavy emphasis on the use of computers and software for organizing and managing research. The general approach is to describe the problem that the chapter addresses and then give a brief survey of the software available that might be used.

The unsaid assumption is that the computer being used is a PC running Microsoft Windows.

Apple Macintosh is indexed on 5 pages only, Linux on just one. Open source, freeware, and shareware solutions are suggested as alternatives to commercial software in many cases. Certain parts of the book are not particularly relevant to statistical research.

Other material is much more appropriate for statisticians. Overall the book provides much useful advice for research students in Statistics, despite some irrelevancies.

Factorial designs Tests of direction and magnitude of effect 6. Repeated-measures and randomized block designs Fundamentals of validity 7. Multivariate designs General guidelines and software availability Readership: Not surprisingly, the contents of the book reflect very much the areas of application that concern the authors, with much on conventional experimental designs with random allocation of subjects to treatments.

The book will therefore be interesting and informative to those wanting to use randomization tests in this area. If you are a psychologist or another type of scientist working in an area where data are usually collected from an experiment with subjects randomly allocated to treatments, then this book should be of interest to you. If, like me, you are usually interested in data where the random allocation of subjects to treatments is not possible then the first paragraph of the book will put you off.

It claims that randomization tests do not apply to your data because you do not have the random assignment of subjects to treatments. Actually, to me, and many others, the first paragraph of the book is wrong. What defines a randomization test is the randomization of data values to produce alternative sets of data that might have occurred in order to see whether the observed set of data could reasonably have occurred by chance on the assumption that certain aspects of the data are completely random.

Based on this idea many ecologists, for example, run randomization tests to see whether aspects of community structure appear to be random rather than the results of interactions between species.

The ecologists think that this is perfectly valid and reasonable, but the authors of this book seem to disagree. I would not recommend the book to a biologist or for the reasons mentioned above and because I could find no mention in the book of the important papers on the properties of randomization tests with experimental designs that have been published in recent years in biology journals.

Generalized linear models and survival analysis Epilogue models Readership: Researchers requiring practical skills in data analysis or students looking for examples of applications to complement a more theoretically based course.

This second edition is an example- based introduction to data analysis using R and reflects the changes in R since first edition of this book. This updated book also contains new material on survival analysis, random coefficients models and the handling of high-dimensional data. The treatment of regression methods has been extended, including a brief discussion of errors in predictor variables and new graphs have been added.

The mathematical content has been kept to a minimum while the statistical and scientific issues are explored in more depth. Only basic statistical knowledge, such as that covered in a first undergraduate course is required to follow the book. The user will have to have R installed on their machine to be able to do the exercises, which are provided at the end of the chapters. Solutions to selected exercises, R scripts that have all the code from the book and other supplementary materials are available via the link given at http: This site proved difficult to access and hence is not readily available.

The text includes a wealth of practical examples, drawn from a variety of practical applications, which should easily be understood by the reader.

The methods demonstrated are suitable for use in areas such as biology, social science, medicine and engineering. The core of the book is taken up with detailed discussion of regression methods, which leads onto more advanced statistical concepts. Each chapter starts with a brief explanation and ends with a recap, references and suggestions for further reading and exercises for the reader to complete.

Heteroskedastic models Seasonality Readership: Long memory in the sense of slowly decaying correlations is known to occur in a wide variety of different disciplines: Nile River flows being an early celebrated example, more recent examples include internet traffic and the volatility of financial returns.

Although it is not explicitly stated, an underlying assumption is that the reader is already familiar with, or has taken a first course on, Time Series Analysis at a level comparable to that of the book by Brockwell and Davis At the same time, however, graphs and tables illustrating some of the important results are also presented.

An important focus of the book is on the likelihood and the associated semi-parametric and non-parametric approaches to the estimation of the memory parameter, but an introduction to the Bayesian approaches to this question is also provided. A pedagogic introduction to the evaluation of the likelihood function for the ARFIMA class of models is given and which is followed up by a proof of the consistency and asymptotic normality of the maximum likelihood estimators.

There is also a useful discussion of long memory in financial time series and of linear regression models with long memory errors. Bibliographic notes point readers to the relevant references to consult for more information. The list of references is selective but quite comprehensive. A major omission that I noticed was the question of model selection, which is relevant for a practical application of long memory models; also, the recent work on non-linear long memory models is not mentioned.

Designs with more than two formulations in single- and multiple-dose bioequivalence studies 8. Analysis of pharmacokinetic interactions 3. Basic statistical considerations 9. Population and individual bioequivalence 4. Equivalence assessment in case of clinical design endpoints 5.

Statisticians in the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory agencies, as well as academic statisticians, interested in the design and analysis of bioequivalence trials. This is the third book devoted exclusively to the topic of bioequivalence studies, previous books on the topic being by Chow and Liu and Patterson and Jones Starting with the background information on bioequivalence trials, the book delves into the cross-over designs used to obtain the relevant data, the models used for the data analysis, and the criteria used for the assessment of bioequivalence.

The book provides a detailed development of the definitions and criteria set forth by the U. The average bioequivalence criterion and the related tests and confidence intervals are discussed in detail, along with the power and sample size calculations in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Guidelines for the presentation of the results from bioequivalence studies are clearly described in a chapter. The standards set forth in this chapter should be of considerable practical value while carrying out bioequivalence studies. There is a chapter-long discussion of drug—drug and food—drug interaction studies, both of which can be addressed as equivalence problems. The bioequivalence problem for comparing several test formulations to a single reference formulation is also discussed in the book.

The book contains a very thorough and detailed discussion of the population bioequivalence and individual bioequivalence criteria. The development of the criteria is clearly described, along with the available test procedures. However, the book does not include topics that are of academic interest only; for example, there is no discussion of tests that improve upon the two one-sided tests TOST.

A number of examples are included in the book, based on actual bioequivalence studies; SAS codes are given along with the output and the interpretation of the results.

For anyone interested in any aspect of bioequivalence, the book is a very valuable reference. Design and Analysis of Bioavailability and Bioequivalence Studies 2nd edition. Embed Size px. Start on. Show related SlideShares at end. WordPress Shortcode. Published in: Full Name Comment goes here.
