Preface and Preamble:
Mathematics is the language of the sciences.i However, one area of mathematics dominates in
scientific research: statistics. From the statistical mechanics to machine learning and social
psychology, the degree of overlap in the statistical methods, measures, and models is rather
astounding considering how different typical methods used in these and other fields are, let alone
the fields themselves. For example, the following is from a paper by two experienced researchers
(one with both an MD and PhD) in a volume on pain research methods
Standard tests such as analysis of variance (ANOVA), Scheffs F test, and serial ttests...should be used to ensure statistical significance (p < 0.05)ii.
What these standard tests are is far less important than that they are standard. But standard
for whom? Naturally, the authors mean standard for their target audience:
target readers include beginners in pain research who may have substantial training and
experiences in other fields; and pain researchers who may have extensive knowledge and
experience in a specific field, but who may want to extend their research to a new level
(p. v).

Clearly, business researchers dont qualify. Yet looking at a textbook on business research
methodsiii we find ANOVA, t-tests, & F-tests all on one page in a chapter summary of Key
Concepts (p. 548). So despite the radical differences between beta testing products and
classifying nociceptive neurons in the peripheral nervous system, the same statistical tests are
standard.
Unfortunately, these standard tests are frequently inferior to readily available and easily used
alternatives, and are employed without a sufficient appreciation of their underlying logic and
assumptions. The literature on problems with the uses of statistics across different sciences is
vast, but the first point at least can be illustrated with a neutral statement based on
mathematically demonstrable fact:
Many of the statistical methods routinely used in contemporary research are based on a
compromise with the ideal... The compromise is represented by most statistical tests in
common use, such as the t and F testsiv
The most widely used statistical tests (including the t and F statistics) were developed by
Pearson, Galton, Edgeworth, Gosset, & Fisher in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.v Of
course, being old isnt the issue. After all, ideal [methods]represented by permutation tests,
such as Fishers exact testvi include those that have been around since the 30s. It was not until
computers that many of these methods could be used due to their computational demands.
Today, most researchers carry mobile phones that are more powerful than personal computers
from the 80s and 90s, while Fishers exact test was formulated roughly a decade prior to perhaps
the first rigorously defined theoretical computer.vii Meanwhile, far too many researchers us
powerful computers equipped with expensive statistical software only to continue using the
statistical tests that, as noted above, were compromises almost a century ago. We have possessed
the capability to employ superior methods we do not for far too long. It is time to start exploiting
the computational power we have at our disposal.
By exploiting their power I do not mean the garbage in, garbage out approach that seems to
necessarily follow from standard curricula. Even in top universities, such as Boston College, we
find evidence that graduate curricula is trending toward (if not already at) the point of actually
designing statistics and research methods courses around this approach. For example, at BC, we
find that the multivariate statistics course Sociology 703 uses the textbook Statistics and Data
Analysis for Nursing Research. Are there truly no adequate textbooks that explain the same
methods but in a context fit for students of sociology? More troublesome is how graduate level
research & statistics courses across the sciences have increasingly become more classes on how
to use software than courses on statistics. In other words, we are teaching future researchers how
to use utilize software such as SPSS in order to perform statistical techniques they do not
understand.
The reason for this is not just because such software enables researchers to perform complicated
analyses or construct sophisticated models with minimal understanding. Another major
contributing factor is easily found. We need look no farther than e.g., the 3rd edition of The
Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know, as linear algebra is the foundation
for basically all of modern statistics:

Linear algebra is a living, active branch of mathematical research which is central to


almost all other areas of mathematics and which has important applications in all
branches of the physical and social sciences and in engineering. However, in recent
years the content of linear algebra courses required to complete an undergraduate
degree in mathematicsand even more so in other areasat all but the most dedicated
universities, has been depleted to the extent that it falls far short of what is in fact needed
for graduate study and research or for real-world application. This is true not only in the
areas of theoretical work but also in the areas of computational matrix theory, which are
becoming more and more important to the working researcher as personal computers
become a common and powerful tool. Students are not only less able to formulate or even
follow mathematical proofs, they are also less able to understand the underlying
mathematics of the numerical algorithms they must use. The resulting knowledge gap has
led to frustration and recrimination on the part of both students and faculty alike, with
each silentlyand sometimes not so silentlyblaming the other for the resulting state of
affairs. This book is written with the intention of bridging that gap.
This book is designed for students who will be entering graduate mathematics programs. It is
intended, therefore, to address the shortcomings of students whose mathematical experience and
sophistication is beyond that of many researchers across multiple sciences. In particular, it is
aimed at the deficiencies graduate mathematics students present in a subject that happens to be
the backbone of multivariate statistics and data analysis. Graduate students in neuroscience,
managerial science, nursing, economics, etc. do not in general have the mathematical experience
nor competency that a mathematics major does. It is understandable, then, that faced with the
difficulties of graduate students whose university-level mathematical education consists of
nothing or little other than a single introductory statistics course, graduate programs have opted
to rely more on teaching students just enough to associate a certain experimental design or
question with some set of procedures in SPSS or built-in R functions. Understandable, though,
doesnt mean acceptable.
The following bibliography is designed to both introduce new researchers to techniques and
methods frequently not taught, to point out the deficiencies in the methods that are taught, and to
provide sources to remedy both issues.

Sect. 3: Probability Theory: Statistics by Any Other Name is Still Important
I added this section for two reasons:
1) I have found that more and more researchers who rely on statistical methods, tests, models,
etc., appeal to probability distributions without having studied probability

2) Even those who have taken a course in probability theory remain unfamiliar with measuretheoretic probability. Although its hardly necessary for most researchers to understand Lebesque
integration, functional spaces, and so forth, understanding probability measure at some level is
actually important.

Sect. 7: Statistical & Computational Software
I have deliberately avoided including general introductions to software packages, one simple
reason being that these abound and are too much alike for me to recommend those I think best
written. Instead, I have tried to include sources that are specific to a subject or topic, or in
general texts covering applications that general introductions (and giant reference books) lack. I

have also deliberately not included any SPSS books (as I find SPSS to be a major factor in the
current deficit in statistics education for many graduate students) and so too with Excel (which is
just SPSS without the pre-loaded statistical methods).
