Short description Promoting a deeper understanding of the notion of statistical evidence, Probe It: Combining Statistical Evidence acts as a source of basic methods for scientists wanting to combine evidence from different experiments. The book is comprised of two parts: The Handbook and The Theory. The Handbook is a guide for combining and interpreting experimental evidence to solve standard statistical problems. This section allows readers with a rudimentary knowledge in general statistics to apply the methods. The Theory provides the motivation, theory and results of simulation experiments to justify the methodology.
