View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This text is an accessible, student-friendly introduction to the wide range of mathematical and statistical tools needed by the forensic scientist in the analysis, interpretation and presentation of experimental measurements.

From a basis of high school mathematics, the book develops essential quantitative analysis techniques within the context of a broad range of forensic applications. This clearly structured text focuses on developing core mathematical skills together with an understanding of the calculations associated with the analysis of experimental work, including an emphasis on the use of graphs and the evaluation of uncertainties. Through a broad study of probability and statistics, the reader is led ultimately to the use of Bayesian approaches to the evaluation of evidence within the court. In every section, forensic applications such as ballistics trajectories, post-mortem cooling, aspects of forensic pharmacokinetics, the matching of glass evidence, the formation of bloodstains and the interpretation of DNA profiles are discussed and examples of calculations are worked through. In every chapter there are numerous self-assessment problems to aid student learning.

Its broad scope and forensically focused coverage make this book an essential text for students embarking on any degree course in forensic science or forensic analysis, as well as an invaluable reference for post-graduate students and forensic professionals.

Key features:

  • Offers a unique mix of mathematics and statistics topics, specifically tailored to a forensic science undergraduate degree.
  • All topics illustrated with examples from the forensic science discipline.
  • Written in an accessible, student-friendly way to engage interest and enhance learning and confidence.
  • Assumes only a basic high-school level prior mathematical knowledge.

Review:

"The book's main selling point is its pedagogical approach to make the contents relevant to the intended audience by using subject-specific examples. This is successful in the main, with examples originating from a wide variety of areas in forensic science, so that neither the forensic biologist nor the forensic chemist or physicist need to feel neglected. It is even more commendable that Craig Adams manages to find a forensic context for the development of essential skills, such as the computation of concentrations from spectrophotometric measurements and the plotting of standard curves for HPLC data." (Reviews, December 2010)
