Announcing mathStatica 2 for Mathematica 7
mathStatica 2 provides perfect compatibility with Mathematica 7. The core components of mathStatica, namely (i) the software Code, (ii) the Help System, (iii) the live electronic Book, and (iv) the Solution Manual have all been completely revised, updated, optimised and polished for Mathematica 7, together with some major new functionality ...
A.   Key Feature of 2.0     Full support for Mathematica 7
 Code – fully revised for perfect Mathematica 7 compatibility Help System – completely re-built for Mathematica 7 – new v7 look and feel Electronic Book – New 2010 edition! Rose, C. and Smith, M.D. (2010) Mathematical Statistics with Mathematica – revised for full v7 compatibility – takes full advantage of the latest v7 front-end interface: live real-time animations, manipulations, rotations, live links, fully interactive ... The most up-to-date electronic Mathematica text available: single-click to open any section live links from the text to the integrated mathStatica Help real-time interactive animations all seamlessly integrated into the v7 build Solution Manual – revised for full 7.x compatibility – now includes solutions to all the chapter exercises in the book

C.   Major New Functions in v2
 Maximum Minimum – pdf of max(X, Y, Z, ...)   [ Show me ] TransformProduct – pdf of X * Y   [ Show me ] OrderStatNonIdentical – pdf of order statistics sampling from non-identical parent distributions   [ Show me ] JohnsonSU JohnsonSL – automated fitting for the Johnson SU and SL family Unbiased estimators – now all multivariate ... The entire suite of unbiased estimator functions now support arbitrary multivariate worlds. Moments of moments – now all multivariate ... The entire suite of moments of moments functions are now multivariate. e.g. Find the covariance between, say:     and   [ Show me ]
D.   Palettes in v2
E.   Easy to start
 – To load mathStatica 2:  simply press the new 'Start' button ...Incredibly easy!
F.   Easy to maintain
 \$UserBaseDirectory – In the olde days, mathStatica had to be installed inside the Mathematica application itself, because ... well ... that is the way things used to be done when mathStatica 1.0 was designed. mathStatica 2 supports modern install locations like \$UserBaseDirectory and \$BaseDirectory ... which means, every time you upgrade to a newer version of Mathematica, your mathStatica installation just keeps on going, ceteris paribus, without having to re-install or do anything extra.
G.   Massive Speed Increases
 DiscreteRNG – dramatically faster for finite List Form domains(typically, 10 to 100 times faster) – twice as fast for Function Form domains FrequencyPlot – about 50 times faster than mathStatica 1.5(both timed in v7) on large data sets FrequencyPlotDiscrete – about 60 times faster than mathStatica 1.5(both timed in v7) on large data sets
