A sparse statistical model has only a small number of
nonzero parameters or weights; therefore, it is much
easier to estimate and interpret than a dense model.
This book presents methods that exploit sparsely to
help recover the underlying signal in a set of data.

This book discusses the theory and applications of model-
based experimental design with a strong emphasis on
biopharmaceutical studies. The book begins with an
explanation of the key ideas, using linear models as
examples. Applying the linearization in the parameter
space, it then covers nonlinear models and locally
optimal designs as well as minimax, optimal on average,
and Bayesian designs. The authors also discuss adaptive
designs, focusing on procedures with non-informative

This book provides an introductory overview of multivariate methods
without getting too deep into the mathematical details.This fourth
edition is a revised and updated version of this bestselling introductory
textbook.It retains the clear and concise style of the previous editions
of the book and focuses on examples from biological and environmental
sciences. The major update with this edition is that R code has been
included for each of the analyses described, although in practice
any standard statistical package can be used. The original idea with
this book still applies. This was to make it as short as possible
and enable readers to begin using multivariate methods in an intelligent manner.

This short book introduces the main ideas of statistical
inference in a way that is both user friendly and
mathematically sound. Particular emphasis is placed on
the common foundation of many models used in practice. In
addition, the book focuses on the formulation of
appropriate statistical models to study problems in
business, economics, and the social sciences, as well as
on how to interpret the results from statistical
analyses. The book will be useful to students who are
interested in rigorous applications of statistics to
problems in business, economics and the social sciences,
as well as students who have studied statistics in the
past, but need a more solid grounding in statistical
techniques to further their careers.

This book is about the Lean system. It describes the
guiding principles of the Shingo process for continuous
improvement layout and evaluation. It examines the
principles, systems, and tools of continuous improvement
and demonstrates how to deploy these proven methods in
plants and distribution centers. The book covers time-
tested continuous improvement process tools and
practices, including the visual workplace, mistake
proofing, PDCA, 5S, Heijunka, standard work, Kaizen, and
value stream mapping. It also examines Lean performance
measures and introduces a comprehensive Lean tool
assessment system. Presenting seven proven techniques for
altering and guiding a Lean culture, the book identifies
a formal process for overcoming common roadblocks. It
also illustrates the proliferation of the Lean initiative
across an organization-s various sites.

The wolf is tricked by Red Riding Hood into strangling
her grandmother and is subsequently arrested. Sleeping
Beauty and Cinderella do not live happily ever after. And
the fairies are saucy, angry, and capricious. This book
collects thirty-six tales, many newly translated, by writers
associated with the decadent literary movement, which flourished
in France in the late nineteenth century. Written by such creative
luminaries as Charles Baudelaire, Anatole France, and Guillaume
Apollinaire, these enchanting yet troubling stories
reflect the concerns and fascinations of a time of great
political, social, and cultural change.
