4.12: Numerical summaries: summary

In this section, various ways of summarising certain aspects of a data set by a single number have been discussed. You have been introduced to two pairs of statistics for assessing location and dispersion. The median and interquartile range provide one pair of statistics, and the mean and standard deviation the other, each pair doing a similar job. As for the choice of which pair to use, there are pros and cons for either. You have seen that the median is a more resistant measure of location

3 The language of proof

In Section 3 we examine the language used to express mathematical statements and proofs, and discuss various techniques for proving that a mathematical statement is true. These techniques include direct proof, proof by mathematical induction, proof by contradiction and proof by contraposition. We also illustrate the use of counter-examples to show that a statement is false.

2.3.2 The project (single) team

The project, or single, team consists of a group of people who come together as a distinct organisational unit in order to work on a project or projects. The team is often led by a project manager, though self-managing and self-organising arrangements are also found. Quite often, a team that has been successful on one project will stay together to work on subsequent projects. This is particularly common where an organisation engages repeatedly in projects of a broadly similar nature – for e

Menu costs at work : restaurant prices and the introduction of the Euro
This paper on menu costs by Bart Hobijn, Federico Ravenna and Andrea Tambalotti was originally published in the Quarterly Journal of Economics, Volume 121, August 2006. "Restaurant prices in the euro area increased dramatically after the introduction of the euro. We argue that this increase can be explained by a common model of menu cost pricing, extended to include the state-dependent decision of firms on when to adopt the new currency. Two mechanisms drive this result. First, firms concentrate

2.4.1 Glycosylation

Glycosylation of a protein entails the covalent attachment of carbohydrate groups (typically oligosaccharides) and the resulting modified protein is called a glycoprotein. Covalent attachment of sugar residues to proteins occurs in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and Golgi apparatus. The oligosaccharide chains usually contain less than 15 sugar residues but are very diverse and are often branched. They are linked to the protein component via either the –OH groups of serine and threoni

Elizabeth Norton, Ph.D.: Using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to characterize human face processing in space
A key feature of the human social brain is its specialized ability to process faces. EEG and fMRI brain imaging studies have yielded conflicting results about whether the brain's response to faces is qualitatively or quantitatively different in individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Here, I present data from a study using simultaneous EEG-fMRI to relate the EEG/ERP time course of face processing to the associated fMRI activation in adults with and without ASD. This approach is novel
