Wannabe Data Scientists! Learn the basics with these 7 books! – Medium In the last few years I spent a significant time with reading books about Data Science. I found these 7 books the best. These together are a very valuable source of learning the basics. It drives you through everything, you need to know. Average Annual Percent Change (AAPC) — Joinpoint Help System While Joinpoint computes the trend in segments whose start and end are determined to best fit the data, sometimes it is useful to summarize the trend over a fixed predetermined interval. The AAPC is a method which uses the underlying Joinpoint model to compute a summary measure over a fixed pre-specified interval. Annual Percent Change (APC) is one way to characterize trends in cancer rates over time. With this approach, the cancer rates are assumed to change at a constant percentage of the rate of the previous year. For example, if the APC is 1%, and the rate is 50 per 100,000 in 1990, the rate is 50 x 1.01 = 50.5 in 1991 and 50.5 x 1.01 = 51.005 in 1992.

Analysis and Control of Linear Systems Edited by Philippe de Larminat, IRCCyN, Nantes, France Publication Date: January 2007 Hardback 560 pp. eBooks 35 invaluable books on Data Visualization Are you a hard-core enthusiast of data visualization? Or a beginner, who wants to learn and be able to create more effective visualisations? Check out our list of 35 invaluable books you must read for better visualization. (Some books in the list might not be directly connected to data visualization as such, but we included them because they were highly recommended by many data visualization experts.

Geometric standard deviation In probability theory and statistics, the geometric standard deviation describes how spread out are a set of numbers whose preferred average is the geometric mean. For such data, it may be preferred to the more usual standard deviation. Note that unlike the usual arithmetic standard deviation, the geometric standard deviation is a multiplicative factor, and thus is dimensionless, rather than having the same dimension as the input values. Definition[edit] If the geometric mean of a set of numbers {A1, A2, ..., An} is denoted as μg, then the geometric standard deviation is ntrol of Continuous Linear Systems Kaddour Najim, Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse, France Publication Date: April 2006 Hardback 352 pp. eBooks Description This book contains more than 150 problems and solutions on the control of linear continuous systems.

The R Trader » Blog Archive » BERT: a newcomer in the R Excel connection A few months ago a reader point me out this new way of connecting R and Excel. I don’t know for how long this has been around, but I never came across it and I’ve never seen any blog post or article about it. So I decided to write a post as the tool is really worth it and before anyone asks, I’m not related to the company in any way.
