Statistical methods, experimental design, and scientific inference by
Ronald Aylmer Fisher(
Book
)
37 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
R.A. Fisher has had more influence on the development of statistical theory and practice than any other twentiethcentury statistician. His writings (both in paper and book form) have proved to be as relevant to presentday statisticians as they were when first published. This book brings together as a single volume three of Fisher's most influential textbooks: Statistical Methods for Research Workers, The Design of Experiments, and Statistical Methods and Scientific Inference . In this new edition Frank Yates has provided a foreword which sheds fresh light on Fisher's thinking and on the writing and reception of each of the books. He discusses some of the key issues tackled in the three books and reflects on how the ideas expressed have come to permeate modern statistical practice

Muchas clases importantes de datos pueden ser imterpretadas en el supuesto de que una desviacion normal es linealment dependiente de alguna medida concomitante observable, y que una frecuencia observable es aquella con la cual esta desviacion es excedida en una distribucion normal. Por ejemplo, la frecuencia conn que se juzga un peso mas pesado que el de un standard aumenta con el peso real empleado; la frecuencia con que un buen saltador salta una barra disminuye con la altura a que esta se coloca
