Introduction to Statistics for Forensic Scientists is an
essential introduction to the subject, gently guiding the reader
through the key statistical techniques used to evaluate various
types of forensic evidence. Assuming only a modest mathematical
background, the book uses real-life examples from the forensic
science literature and forensic case-work to illustrate relevant
statistical concepts and methods.

Opening with a brief overview of the history and use of
statistics within forensic science, the text then goes on to
introduce statistical techniques commonly used to examine data
obtained during laboratory experiments. There is a strong emphasis
on the evaluation of scientific observation as evidence and modern
Bayesian approaches to interpreting forensic data for the courts.
The analysis of key forms of evidence are discussed throughout with
a particular focus on DNA, fibres and glass.


An invaluable introduction to the statistical interpretation of
forensic evidence; this book will be invaluable for all
undergraduates taking courses in forensic science.
