This book contains a collection of commissioned, edited chapters on the general theme of descriptive multivariate analysis, provided by a series of contributors to a symposium held at the University of Exeter. Areas covered include cluster analysis, principal components, canonicalcorrelations and varieties, nonlinear methods, biplots, Procrustes analysis, correspondence analysis, graphical models, and analysis of functional data. The emphasis throughout is on methodology, but computational aspects and applications are also highlighted where appropriate. Each chapter iswritten by an expert in the field, and the book as a whole provides a state of the art summary of the descriptive multivariate area. The academic level lies between that of an introduction to the subject and an advanced monograph, and the book contains numerous topics not covered elsewhere inexisting texts.
W. J. Krzanowski is at University of Exeter.

Editorial Reviews

"It fills a gap left by standard textbooks on multivariate analysis, which (understandably) contain only basic ideas and techniques. As such it would provide useful supplemental material for a graduate-level course...." --Technometrics
" ... this volume contains some good expositions of standard theory as well as recently developed ideas." --Mathematical Reviews
