Computational Statistics: An Introduction

Computational Statistics: An Introduction by James E. Gentle, Wolfgang Härdle, Yuichi Mori.

I suspect this to be:

Handbook of Computational Statistics (Volume I) Concepts and Methods
Gentle, James E.; Härdle, Wolfgang; Mori, Yuichi (Eds.)
2004, XII, 1070 p. 236 illus., Hardcover
ISBN: 3-540-40464-3
Language: English
Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York


But there is no date or other information about the book on the webpages that I could find.

If it is the 2004 edition (seems likely), I doubt the basics of computational statistics have changed all that much. The only way to know for sure would be to get a copy of the second edition, if it issues, and compare the two.

If you make a comparison or have other information about this resource, please post a response.

I checked at the Spring site and they no longer list this work in the series. There are a nice selection of > $300 (US) books in the series if you are interested.

Data mining is going in the direction of greater reliance on computational analysis so a firm grounding in statistics (and their limitations) is a good skill set to have.
