SDL Component Suite - Statis

The unit STATIS offers some of the most fundamental procedures of mathematical statistics. Along with the Gamma and the Beta function, all major types of distributions are implemented (normal, t, F, and chi-square distribution). A major benefit of this package is that the distribution functions are calculated analytically and not by approximations, or by table lookup. Thus the precision is at least eight digits. More details can be found in the online help pages.

The unit STATIS is part of the SDL Component Suite.

Tips, Tricks and Applications

Delphi Bits Fast Calculation of Quantiles An efficient way to speed up the calculation of quantiles.
SDL TechNotes Kurtosis and skewness do not match the values of Excel The calculations of statistical parameters differs dedpending on whether you look at a sample or at a population.
DataLab DataLab uses many routines of the SDL Component Suite If you want to test the statistical and mathematical routines available within the SDL Suite without writing a single line of code you could download the evaluation copy of DataLab and play with your data before you start programming your particular application.
