An appendix provides distribution tables for commonly used nonparametric statistics
While no quantitative model will probably ever perfectly meet such criteria, one existing class of nonparametric statistics
, rank correlation statistics, comes close.
Most textbooks cover either nonparametric statistics
or categorical data analysis, he says, but with this textbook his is able to deal with both during a one-semester course that also sets out a framework for choosing the best statistical technique.
On the other hand, G24, G1, G3, G2, G18 and G10 had the highest S i (1) and S i (2) values; therefore, they were determined to be unstable Two other nonparametric statistics
(S i (3) and S i (6)) combine yield and stability based on yield ranks of genotypes in each environment (Nassar and Huehn, 1987).
With examples, illustrations and accessible text Stapleton describes discrete probability models, special discrete distributions, continuous random variables, special continuous and conditional distributions, moment generating functions and limit theory, estimation, testing of hypotheses, the multivariate normal (as well as chi-square, t and F distributions) nonparametric statistics
, linear statistical models, and frequency data.
