Mathematica Data Analysis

By: Sergiy Suchok

Overview of this book

There are many algorithms for data analysis and it’s not always possible to quickly choose the best one for each case. Implementation of the algorithms takes a lot of time. With the help of Mathematica, you can quickly get a result from the use of a particular method, because this system contains almost all the known algorithms for data analysis. If you are not a programmer but you need to analyze data, this book will show you the capabilities of Mathematica when just few strings of intelligible code help to solve huge tasks from statistical issues to pattern recognition. If you're a programmer, with the help of this book, you will learn how to use the library of algorithms implemented in Mathematica in your programs, as well as how to write algorithm testing procedure. With each chapter, you'll be more immersed in the special world of Mathematica. Along with intuitive queries for data processing, we will highlight the nuances and features of this system, allowing you to build effective analysis systems. With the help of this book, you will learn how to optimize the computations by combining your libraries with the Mathematica kernel.

Chapter 2. Broad Capabilities for Data Import

In order to process and analyze data, it is necessary to be able to import data into Mathematica. However, the data may not be always in a convenient format; they may contain errors, may be incomplete, or on the contrary—they may contain redundant information. Therefore, in order to learn how to import data, you will understand the following from this chapter:

  • What types of data can be imported in Mathematica?

  • What built-in functions are used for importing?

  • How to check data for completeness

  • How to clean the data and transform them into a convenient format for analysis
