Lisp-Stat Functional, matrix,
object-oriented and graphical programming in Lisp and Lisp-Stat.
Programming is taught via an extensive set of programming
examples using online datasets.
Lisp-Stat is a computational environment for data analysis and dynamic
graphics. It is taught as a basis for understanding current (and creating
new) methods in Psychometrics, Computational Statistics and Graphical
Statistics. Lisp-Stat is an object-oriented environment for statistical
computing and dynamic graphics that is open, extensible and freely
available. It is designed to facilitate high-level statistical programming
and data analysis by sophisticated statistical data analysts. Lisp-Stat
is based on XLisp,
a freely available version of
Common Lisp, a functional object-oriented computing language.
A Statistical Visualization system written in Lisp by Forrest Young
and students in this class. ViSta demonstrates the use of statistical
and graphical programming in Lisp to create an open and extensible point-and-click
system with modern statistical visualization capabilities. ViSta is
designed to ViSta is designed for students and teachers of statistics
to facilitate the learning of statistics. ViSta features dynamic visual
tools that: reveal structure in your data; guide you through an analysis;
show you results of your analyses; and structure your data analysis
