Supports the assertion that multiple views of data have a greater prospect of revealing prominent patterns than single views
This book provides a portal into the realms of the open source data analysis system called R though exposition by example
The authors formulate approaches that are operable in R that support preliminary and progressive prioritization
This monograph is a four-fold featuring of adaptive analysis.
· First is data distillation and comparative coupling whereby the results of one analysis are fed forward into another analysis without necessarily returning directly to the original data matrix, and analytical avenues usually seen as alternatives are pursued in parallel with results being carried forward together as complementary comparatives.
· Third is a major mission to introduce innovative methodologies for preliminary and/or partial prioritization that arise from partial order theory. We formulate functions in R that provide for generation and visualization of partial orderings based on combinations of criteria. These methods support etiological exploration for explanations that underlie apparent concurrence or conflict among multiple indicators of suitability or severity.
Fourth is delving more deeply into some multivariate methods such as principal components using the matrix methods available in R. R makes highly compact calls available for several such multivariate methods, but sometimes discernment demands delving into details.
