This volume provides solid methodological development in the area of statistics for business and economics. The development of each technique is presented in an application setting, with statistical results providing insights and solutions to problems.
Preface The expression "necessity is the mother of all invention" is so true. I would not have taken on this project if there was another text out there that I could have referenced. Just like every other topic these days, there is an abundance of information on the Internet if you want to do some research. I found no manuscript that consolidates, for a business audience, topics related to Linux and open source in one place. I also believe that some of the paradigm shifts initiated by the open source movement have not been documented for corporate managers, until now. The Linux and open source movement has instigated "religious wars" between different camps, each presenting extreme but often...
This book provides some of the most recent developments in Computational Intelligence applied to business and economics presented at the MS''10 International Conference, Barcelona, 15 - 17 July, 2010. It presents several new theoretical advancements and a wide range of applications in different business and economic areas including accounting, finance, management, marketing, sports, tourism, economics and politics, and also some applications related with engineering and modeling and simulation. This book is very useful for researchers and graduate students interested in pursuing research in business and economics with an orientation to modern techniques for dealing with uncertainty such as those related with modeling and simulation and computational intelligence.
The First Edition of this text was written at a time when the structures of international relations were undergoing a profound transformation, with the collapse of Soviet-style communism just behind us and the creation of NAFTA and the WTO just ahead. The Second Edition came at a time when NAFTA and the WTO had taken shape but not yet acquired a history. At the time of the Third Edition, both of those structures can be studied in detail and their ramifications for the world economy can be better appreciated. In the interim, the Internet has established itself as a presence in innumerable firms and households, and the dot com bubble has come and gone. The services-oriented information economy...
Essentials of Business Statistics presents basic statistic concepts, including descriptive statistics, probability, and elementary inferential statistics in a student oriented style. All concepts are developed with support of unique three part examples: problem, solution, and interpretation, which give students the full picture. Applications are drawn from all areas of business and economics. This book is a refocused and shortened version of APPLIED STATISTICS FOR BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS 2/e by Webster. This briefer book concentrates on the core topics in business statistics. It is important to retain 2/e Webster users by presenting this 1/e as a "shortened" book. It is also very important to present it as a "new" alternative to the Mason level market, to replace any brief text, e.g. Mason, Levin/Rubin, Mann, Trioloa/Franklin and Anderson/Sweeney/Williams Essentials.
