This reference not only provides an overview of multidimensional nonlinear descriptive analysis (MUNDA) of discrete data, it also offers new results in a variety of fields. The first part of the book covers conceptual and technical preliminaries needed to understand the data analysis in subsequent chapters. The next two parts contain applications of MUNDA to diverse data types, with each chapter devoted to one type of categorical data, a brief historical comment, and basic skills peculiar to the data types. The final part examines several problems and then concludes with suggestions for future progress.
Covering both the early and later years of MUNDA research in the social sciences, psychology, ecology, biology, and statistics, this book provides a framework for potential developments in even more areas of study.
"…The strengths of the book lie in the accessibility of the material, the author’s undisputed expertise in MUNDA, and the fact that the material is mostly self-contained. … In summary, this book presents an accessible, authoritative treatment of the subject."
—J. Wade Davis, University of Missouri, The American Statistician, August 2008
