This page provides an annotated, topic-based collection of available resources for statistics,
statistical graphics, and computation related to research, data analysis and teaching, now
containing over 580 links. Recently added links are now maintained automatically and indicated
with the icon. There is both some
redundancy (some sites listed more than once, or separate listings for different documents
maintained at a single place), and some unevenness (it reflects my idiosyncratic interests) in
this list, but I hope it's useful nonetheless.

The page has grown to the point where it should be subdivided and reorganized. That process
has begun, and the address for this page may need to change to reflect that reorganization.

``APL is a programming language best known for its use of non-ASCII symbols, including a few
Greek letters. It is a terse, general-purpose, high-level language created by Ken Iverson and
colleagues at IBM in the 1960s. Whereas many computer languages bega n as tools for specifying
machine instructions in a system- independent way, APL was designed as a powerful,
mathematically-inspired executable notation unhindered by many of the inconvenient, limiting
aspects of computer hardware.'' (from
