What is it about?

Modeling and Analysis of Compositional Data presents a practical and comprehensive introduction to the analysis of compositional data along with numerous examples to illustrate both theory and application of each method. Based upon short courses delivered by the authors, it provides a complete and current compendium of fundamental to advanced methodologies along with exercises at the end of each chapter to improve understanding, as well as data and a solutions manual which is available on an accompanying website. Complementing Pawlowsky-Glahn’s earlier collective text that provides an overview of the state-of-the-art in this field, Modeling and Analysis of Compositional Data fills a gap in the literature for a much-needed manual for teaching, self learning or consulting.

Modeling and Analysis of Compositional Data is a compendium of many years of work in the field of CoDa, and reflects our understanding of how the analysis of this type of data should be approached. It goes beyond the mathematical formulation and tries to transmit the impact of understanding which is the sample space and which is its algebraic-geometric structure.
