Title: The Interplay between Statistics and Computing in Data Analysis
Abstract: The personal computer is becoming a widely used tool for data analysis.
I describe some minimum requirements for a data analysis machine and discuss
the theoretical objects (machine data structures) in order to efficiently
organize the interplay between statistics and computing. The ideas are shown
to be implementable on a desktop system like an IBM AT or PS/2. The
particular implementation discussed here is called XploRe and is written in
TURBO PASCAL 5.0.
Keywords: Machine data structures, Interplay between statistics and
computing, Corvette versus chevette, XploRing data, Xplo Re session
