Case Studies and Applications

Case Studies expand topics introduced at the beginning of each chapter, usually adding real-world data and providing opportunities for further exploration.

Applications extend existing topics in the text or introduce new applications. Woven into each discussion are exercises that often involve moderately large real-world data sets and thus require technology for their solution.

Case studies and applications are available in the formats listed below. You can download the case studies and applications for that format by clicking on the appropriate link.

You will need either StuffIt Expander for the Mac or WinZip for the PC to unstuff any of the downloadable archives.
