ASTROSTATISTICS
Astrostatistics is rapidly becoming a major subfield within astronomy
and cosmology (once again). In this section we provide a number of
introductory articles on basic statistics, links to other sites and
some review articles on astronomy in the Internet Age.

 HIPR2: Hypermedia
Image Processing Reference  The Hypermedia Image Processing
Reference (HIPR) was developed at the
Department of Artificial Intelligence in the University of Edinburgh
in order to provide a set of computerbased tutorial materials for use
in teaching courses on image processing and machine vision.
The package provides online reference and tutorial information on a
wide range of image processing operations, extensively illustrated
with actual digitized images, and bound together in a hypermedia
format for easy browsing, searching and crossreferencing.
An extensive glossary of commonly used terms in image processing is
provided by HIPR ar the following URL:

 KARMA  Developed
by an Australian radio astronomer (Richard Gooch at CSIRO)
KARMA is a toolkit for interprocess communications, authentication,
encryption, graphics display, user interface and manipulating the
KARMA network data structure. The package contains KarmaLib (the
structured libraries and API) and a large number of modules
(applications) to perform many standard tasks. A suite of
visualisation tools are distributed with the library.

 Data Analysis
BriefBook  The Data Analysis BriefBook is a condensed handbook, or
an extended glossary, written in encyclopedic format, covering subjects in
statistics, computing, analysis, and related fields. It intends to be
both introduction and reference for data analysts, scientists and
engineers.
This BriefBook has been prepared by
R.K. BOCK and
W. KRISCHER, both at CERN (Geneva).
 Particle Detector
BriefBook  The Particle Detector BriefBook is a condensed
handbook, or an
extended glossary, written in encyclopedic format, covering subjects
around particle detectors, the underlying physics, and the analysis of
their data. It intends to be both introduction for newcomers and
reference for physicists working in the field.
This BriefBook has been prepared by
R.K. BOCK, at CERN, Geneva, and
A. VASILESCU, at IFA, Bucuresti.

National Laboratory (host site) provides completetext access to
Postscript and PDF files for the book "Numerical Recipes" in both the
FORTRAN77 and the C versions.
