Important features of this Second Edition include:

  • Examples based on real-world applications from various fields including genetics, ecology, economics, network systems, biology, and medicine
  • Explanations of how computational methods are important components of major statistical approaches such as Bayesian models, linear and generalized linear models, random effects models, survival models, and hidden Markov models
  • Expanded coverage of Markov chain Monte Carlo methods
  • New topics such as sequential sampling methods, particle filters, derivative free optimization, bootstrapping dependent data, and adaptive MCMC
  • New exercises and examples that help readers develop the skills needed to apply computational methods to a broad array of statistical problems
  • A companion website offering datasets and code in the R software package

Computational Statistics, Second Edition is perfect for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in statistical computing and as a reference for practicing statisticians.
