A dictionary of statistics and probability that focuses on application and comprehensibility rather than completeness, hence an incomplete dictionary. This small volume contains detailed explanations, including formulae, of many interesting concepts from different areas of statistics, including

- probability
- inference
- statistical modelling
- regression analysis
- hypothesis testing
