Books for Statistics and Mathematics
Statistical literature mostly requires much knowledge. For this reason fundamental concepts are often treated in a non-convincing way. But if you want to understand the basics, follow our recommendation and have a closer look on the book of Casella and Berger. The second text deals with statistical methods in ecology and is of great interest for readers applying statistics in life sciences.
"Statistical Inference" is a modern text on statistical theory and provides basic concepts of probability as well as more advanced methods and techniques. This book helps the reader to develop a much better feel for statistical topics. It has everything one needs in a modern book on statistics.
