Book Description

Object Oriented Data Analysis is a framework that facilitates inter-disciplinary research through new terminology for discussing the often many possible approaches to the analysis of complex data. Such data are naturally arising in a wide variety of areas. This book aims to provide ways of thinking that enable the making of sensible choices.

The main points are illustrated with many real data examples, based on the authors' personal experiences, which have motivated the invention of a wide array of analytic methods.

While the mathematics go far beyond the usual in statistics (including differential geometry and even topology), the book is aimed at accessibility by graduate students. There is deliberate focus on ideas over mathematical formulas.

J. S. Marron is the Amos Hawley Distinguished Professor of Statistics, Professor of Biostatistics, Adjunct Professor of Computer Science, Faculty Member of the Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Curriculum and Research Member of the Lineberger Cancer Center and the Computational Medicine Program, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Ian L. Dryden is Professor of Statistics in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Nottingham, has served as Head of School, and is joint author of the acclaimed book Statistical Shape Analysis.

"Lots of common-sense advice, a lot of informative graphs, and not too much theory…A breath of fresh air in an area where there can be a tendency to make the material overly technical." (John Kent, University of Leeds)

"We need this book badly in statistics." (Jim Ramsay, McGill University)

"The particular strength of this book is that is connects classical statistics, "classical" machine learning and statistics on non-Euclidean spaces with one another…This is a book I have been waiting for." (Stephan F. Huckemann, Georgia-Augusta-University Goettingen)

"An exciting and timely project highlighting the importance of non-Euclidean data across different scientific applications…Covers important and fast-developing topic areas that are important in many applications." (Anuj Srivastava, Florida State University)

Reviews

I wrote a report last year on an earlier draft of the book. I was enthusiastic then and I remain so. I can see the book being very popular both with graduate students and with more advanced researchers in disciplines such as Statistics, Biology, Computer Science and Engineering. There is lots of common sense advice, a lot of informative graphs, and not too much theory…I regard the manuscript as a breath of fresh air in an area where there can be a tendency to make the material overly technical.
~John Kent, University of Leeds

"We need this book badly in statistics. This field, like most in the mathematical sciences tends to generate a literature that offers more and more exposition of research on less and less. The authors say this well in their first two pages, where they point out how much of statistical practice, literature and software assumes data in the form of a two-dimensional table. As in functional data analysis, the theoreticians will sniff and grouch about the lack of theory, but this quickly follows as they see the opportunities for more intense mathematical effort in the area. Both authors are high levels theoreticians in their own right."
~Jim Ramsay, McGill University

"The chapters I have read are very informative and convey the deep insight of two senior specialists in the field. This is very valuable, especially for younger scientists that want to quickly grasp the fundamentals of the field…The particular strength of this book is that is connects classical statistics, "classical" machine learning and statistics on non-Euclidean spaces with one another…This is a book I have been waiting for and I love to read it in detail and profit from it for research and teaching, once it is finished."
~Stephan F. Huckemann, Georgia-Augusta-University Goettingen

"This textbook represents an exciting and timely project highlighting the importance of non-Euclidean data across different scientific applications. It uses numerous examples to motivate this scientific approach, to engage researchers from different backgrounds and experiences. The textbook starts by introducing OODA–overview, contexts, and preliminaries. The main focus of the textbook is on statistical case studies driven by non-Euclidean data. The principal component analysis is frequently used as a primary data analysis tool, extracting interesting patterns from the data. Then the textbook moves into specific methods – distance-based methods, visualizations, shapes, curves, and trees. In the last part, the manuscript focuses on pattern analysis techniques – clustering, classification, smoothing, and asymptotics. I strongly recommend the publication of this textbook. This manuscript covers important and fast-developing topic areas that are important in many applications."
