This book is an introduction to the principles and methodology of modern multivariate statistical analysis. It is written for the user and potential user of multivariate techniques as well as for postgraduate students coming to the subject for the first time. The author's emphasis is problem-oriented; he stresses geometrical intuition in preference to algebraic manipulation. Mathematical sections which are not essential for a practical understanding of technique are clearly indicated so they may be skipped by nonspecialists. The book covers recent developments concerning discrete and mixed variable techniques, as well as continuous variable techniques and other new ideas. This is an up-to-date and very readable account—with a practical emphasis—for research workers in subjects as diverse as anthropology, education, industry, medicine, and taxonomy.
