Cover toned, ink name & date stamp on front flyleaf. 1943 Trade Paperback. 261 pp. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: William Edwards Deming (October 14, 1900 - December 20, 1993) was an American statistician, college professor, author, lecturer, and consultant. Deming is widely credited with improving production in the United States during World War II, although he is perhaps best known for his work in Japan. There, from 1950 onward he taught top management how to improve design (and thus service), product quality, testing and sales (the last through global markets) through various methods, including the application of statistical methods such as analysis of variance (ANOVA) and hypothesis testing. Deming made a significant contribution to Japan's later renown for innovative high-quality products and its economic power. He is regarded as having had more impact upon Japanese manufacturing and business than any other individual not of Japanese heritage. Despite being considered something of a hero in Japan, he was only beginning to win widespread recognition in the U.S. at the time of his death. -- Wikipedia CONTENTS: On the Meaning of Adjustment; Simple Illustrations of Curve Fitting; Least Squares Solution of More Complicated Problems; Propagation of Error; General Problem in Least Squares; Conditions without Parameters; Geometric Conditions; Systematic Computation for Geometric Conditions; Adjusting Sample Frequencies to Expected Marginal Totals; Conditions Containing Parameter; Curve Fitting In More Complicated Circumstances; Systematic Computation for Fitting Curves by Least Squares; Exercises and Notes; Four Examples in Curve Fitting; Fitting an Isotherm; Another Polynomial; A Formula Useful; in Forestry; A Sample Survey of Canned Goods; Tables for Making Random Observations for Class Illustration.
