Yet most astronomers still use a narrow suite of traditional statistical methods. Linking astronomy to the world of modern statistics, this volume is a unique resource, introducing astronomers to advanced statistics through ready-to-use code in the public-domain R statistical software environment"--|cProvided by publisher. 650 0 Statistical astronomy. 650 0 R (Computer program language) 700 1 Babu, Gutti Jogesh,|d1949- 910 DC 201602
