Abstract

Statistics benefited greatly from the introduction of the modern digital computer in the middle of the 20th century. Simulations and other analyses that once required laborious and error-prone hand calculations could be programmed into the computer, saving time and increasing accuracy. We have already used simulations for some demonstrations. In this chapter, we will discuss modern robust alternatives to the standard statistical techniques we discussed in  Chapter 10.
