ABSTRACT
Statistical computing involves the interaction of virtually every aspect of statistical theory and practice with computer science. In many ways, statistical computing forms the boundary between the two disciplines. There are three major approaches to statistical computing programs: Single programs, statistical systems or large package programs, and collections of statistical algorithms. Although computers can reduce the errors that may be introduced into calculations by humans, computers also have their own set of associated errors. A wide variety of software application programs are available for performing statistical calculations. Programs run the gamut from blending with relational database software on one end of the spectrum to blending with mathematical software at the other end.
