Basic Data Analysis and More: A Guided Tour Using Python
by O. Melchert
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 62
In these lecture notes, a selection of frequently required statistical tools will be introduced and illustrated. They allow to post-process data that stem from, e.g., large-scale numerical simulations. From a point of view of data analysis, the concepts and techniques introduced here are of general interest and are, at best, employed by computational aid. Consequently, an exemplary implementation of the presented techniques using the Python programming language is provided.

The cookbook contains a succinct representation of various topics in probability theory and statistics. It provides a comprehensive reference reduced to the mathematical essence, rather than aiming for elaborate explanations.
