Description & Coverage
Description:

With the development of computing technologies in today’s modernized world, software packages have become easily accessible. Open source software, specifically, is a popular method for solving certain issues in the field of computer science. One key challenge is analyzing big data due to the high amounts that organizations are processing. Researchers and professionals need research on the foundations of open source software programs and how they can successfully analyze statistical data.

Open Source Software for Statistical Analysis of Big Data: Emerging Research and Opportunities provides emerging research exploring the theoretical and practical aspects of cost-free software possibilities for applications within data analysis and statistics with a specific focus on R and Python. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as cluster analysis, time series forecasting, and machine learning, this book is ideally designed for researchers, developers, practitioners, engineers, academicians, scholars, and students who want to more fully understand in a brief and concise format the realm and technologies of open source software for big data and how it has been used to solve large-scale research problems in a multitude of disciplines.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Cluster Analysis
  • Data Analytics
  • Data Visualization
  • Fatality Rate Modeling
  • High Performance Computing
  • Machine Learning
  • Neural Networks
  • Python
  • R Programming
  • Statistical Coding
  • Time Series Forecasting
Reviews and Testimonials

"With the ever-increasing demand for the analysis of Big Data, this volume is a welcome addition which provides critical information on how to approach working with very large data. It discusses important areas of Big Data Analysis, particularly with the detailed descriptions and uses of Open Source Software (OSS)."

– Prof. John Quinn, Bryant University, USA
