Introduction to Statistics with the Wolfram Language applies the extensive computational power of the Wolfram Language to the field of statistics. Starting from the basics and working through a range of foundational concepts, Klopper shows just how accessible computational statistics can be given the appropriate tool set. Topics include descriptive statistics, distributions, hypothesis testing, parametric testing, correlation and much more. Follow along as Klopper offers step-by-step instructions and relevant exercises from the field of medical statistics designed to teach readers how to understand and present data in today's increasingly data-driven world.

The Wolfram Language represents a major advance in programming languages that makes leading-edge computation accessible to everyone. Unique in its approach of having vast built-in knowledge and automation, the Wolfram Language scales from a single line of easy-to-understand interactive code to million-line production systems.
