I’m going to give a talk in the CUEB on some topics in the discipline of statistics at the invitation of the Association of Statistics of CUEB, and I’ve mainly prepared two topics for them: one is about those jokes from Prof. Gary’s gallery of statistics jokes, and the other is about some tools for the research of statistics. Below are materials for this talk:

- Slides for “Jokes in Statistics” (English, PDF by LaTeX);
- Slides for “A Leisure Look on Some Tools for Statistics” (
*Chinese*, PDF by PowerPoint) and code;

If there are any errors in these materials, please tell me (through email `x@y`

with `x = xieyihui`

& `y = gmail.com`

or leave a message here directly). Thanks!

P.S. The time of this talk has been decided now: Nov 1st, 2007. For details please refer to: http://cos.name/cn/topic/8122
