Listings are organized by statistical topic (see below). We have concentrated
on methods with public domain Fortran and C source codes, but some listings
give executables, interactive services, or even complete statistical computing
environments. Codes range from isolated (sometimes poorly documented) subroutines
in ASCII to well-documented multi-purpose packages, often in *tar.Z, *.uu or
UNIX shell archive formats. The latter packages are labeled (P) .
In some fields (like signal processing, pattern recognition or wavelets) the
available material is so vast that only metasites to code sources are provided.
The General directory also links to metasites with general resources in statistics.
SearchStatCodes by keywords through the Astronomical Software Directory Service.
We encourage researchers within astronomy, statistics and other fields to inform us of relevant FORTRAN and C codes. Please send links and brief descriptions to Thomas Loredo for Bayesian statistics and Eric Feigelson for all other topics.
StatCodes is located at
http://www.astro.psu.edu/statcodes and is a free service of the
research group at Penn State , which also operates the
Statistical Consulting Center for
Astronomy , organizes cross-disciplinary conferences, and has authored
an introductory monograph Astrostatistics . The
contents of StatCodes is regulated by an informal
committee consisting of: Eric D. Feigelson (Astronomy & Astrophysics, Penn
State University), G. Jogesh Babu (Statistics, Penn State University),
Thomas Loredo (Astronomy, Cornell University), Fionn Murtagh (Informatics,
University of Ulster), and Edward J. Wegman (Computational Sciences & Informatics,
George Mason University). Listing in StatCodes does not constitute
any warranty concerning the validity, quality or applicability of the code.
