## Applied Multivariate Data Analysis

Multivariate analysis plays an important role in the understanding of complex data sets requiring simultaneous examination of all variables. Breaking through the apparent disorder of the information, it provides the means for both describing and exploring data, aiming to extract the underlying patterns and structure. This intermediate-level textbook introduces the reader to the variety of methods by which multivariate statistical analysis may be undertaken. Now in its 2nd edition, 'Applied Multivariate Data Analysis' has been fully expanded and updated, including major chapter revisions as well as new sections on neural networks and random effects models for longitudinal data. Maintaining the easy-going style of the first edition, the authors provide clear explanations of each technique, as well as supporting figures and examples, and minimal technical jargon. With extensive exercises following every chapter, 'Applied Multivariate Data Analysis' is a valuable resource for students on applied statistics courses and applied researchers in many disciplines.

## Multivariate Data Analysis in Sensory and Consumer Science

This book is an outgrowth of research done by Dr. Gamt Dijsterhuis for his doctoral thesis at the University of Leiden. However, there are also contributions by several other authors, as well, including Eeke van der Burg, John Gower, Pieter Punter, Els van den Broek, and Margo Flipsen. This book discusses the use of Multivariate Data Analysis to solve problems in sensory and consumer research. More specifically the focus is on the analysis of the reactions to certain characteristics of food products, which are in the form of scores given to attributes perceived in the food stimuli; the analyses are multivariate; and the senses are mainly the senses of smell and taste. The four main themes covered in the book are: (1) Individual Differences, (2) Measurement Levels; (3) Sensory-Instrumental Relations, and (4) Time-Intensity Data Analysis. The statistical methods discussed include Principle Components Analysis, Generalized Procrustes Analysis, Multidimensional Scaling, Redundancy Analysis, and Canonical Analysis. This book will be a value to all professionals and students working in the sensory studies

## Methods of Multivariate Analysis

Praise for the Second Edition "This book is a systematic, well-written, well-organized text on multivariate analysis packed with intuition and insight . . . There is much practical wisdom in this book that is hard to find elsewhere." —IIE Transactions Filled with new and timely content, Methods of Multivariate Analysis, Third Edition provides examples and exercises based on more than sixty real data sets from a wide variety of scientific fields. It takes a "methods" approach to the subject, placing an emphasis on how students and practitioners can employ multivariate analysis in real-life situations. This Third Edition continues to explore the key descriptive and inferential procedures that result from multivariate analysis. Following a brief overview of the topic, the book goes on to review the fundamentals of matrix algebra, sampling from multivariate populations, and the extension of common univariate statistical procedures (including t-tests, analysis of variance, and multiple regression) to analogous multivariate techniques that involve several dependent variables. The latter half of the book describes statistical tools that are uniquely multivariate in nature, including procedures for discriminating among groups, characterizing low-dimensional latent structure in high-dimensional data, identifying clusters in data, and graphically illustrating relationships in low-dimensional space. In addition, the authors explore a wealth of newly added topics, including: Confirmatory Factor Analysis Classification Trees Dynamic Graphics Transformations to Normality Prediction for Multivariate Multiple Regression Kronecker Products and Vec Notation New exercises have been added throughout the book, allowing readers to test their comprehension of the presented material. Detailed appendices provide partial solutions as well as supplemental tables, and an accompanying FTP site features the book's data sets and related SAS® code. Requiring only a basic background in statistics, Methods of Multivariate Analysis, Third Edition is an excellent book for courses on multivariate analysis and applied statistics at the upper-undergraduate and graduate levels. The book also serves as a valuable reference for both statisticians and researchers across a wide variety of disciplines.
