This book is a collection of thirty invited papers, covering the important parts of a rapidly developing area like "computational statistics". All contributions supply information about a specialized topic in a tutorial and comprehensive style. Newest results and developments are discussed. Starting with the foundations of computational statistics, i.e. numerical reliability of software packages or construction principles for pseudorandom number generators, the volume includes design considerations on statistical programming languages and the basic issues of resampling techniques. Also covered are areas like design of experiments, graphical techniques, modelling and testing problems, a review of clustering algorithms, and concise discussions of regression trees or cognitive aspects of authoring systems.
