Dublin - Research and Markets
has announced the addition of the "Statistical Methods in e-Commerce
Research" report to their offering.
     With the expanding presence of technology in today's economic market,
the use of the Internet for buying, selling, and investing is growing
more popular and public in nature. Statistical Methods in e-Commerce
Research is the first book of its kind to focus on the statistical
models and methods that are essential in order to analyze information
from electronic-commerce (e-Commerce) transactions, identify the
challenges that arise with new e-Commerce data structures, and discover
new knowledge about consumer activity.
     This collection gathers over thirty researchers and practitioners from
the fields of statistics, computer science, information systems, and
marketing to discuss the growing use of statistical methods in
e-Commerce research. From privacy protection to economic impact, the
book first identifies the many obstacles that are encountered while
collecting, cleaning, exploring, and analyzing e-Commerce data.
Solutions to these problems are then suggested using established and
newly developed statistical and data mining methods. Finally, a look
into the future of this evolving area of study is provided through an
in-depth discussion of the emerging methods for conducting e-Commerce
     Statistical Methods in e-Commerce Research successfully bridges the gap
between statistics and e-Commerce, introducing a statistical approach
to solving challenges that arise in the context of online transactions,
while also introducing a wide range of e-Commerce applications and
problems where novel statistical methodology is warranted. It is an
ideal text for courses on e-Commerce at the upper-undergraduate and
graduate levels and also serves as a valuable reference for researchers
and analysts across a wide array of subject areas, including economics,
marketing, and information systems who would like to gain a deeper
understanding of the use of statistics in their work.
