Hand DJ, 2016, Measurement: a very short introduction, Publisher: Oxford University Press, ISBN: 9780198779568
Measurement underpins all of modern society, from science, through medicine, to management, economics, and government. This book describes the history of measurement, and presents a unified theory of measurement, covering all its aspects from measuring mass and length to measuring pain, depression, GDP, and beyond.
Hand DJ, 2015, From evidence to understanding: a commentary on Fisher (1922) 'On the mathematical foundations of theoretical statistics', PHILOSOPHICAL TRANSACTIONS OF THE ROYAL SOCIETY A-MATHEMATICAL PHYSICAL AND ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Vol: 373, ISSN: 1364-503X
The nature of statistics has changed over time. Itwas originally concerned with descriptive ‘mattersof state’—with summarizing population numbers,economic strength and social conditions. But duringthe course of the twentieth century its aim broadenedto include inference—how to use data to shed light onunderlying mechanisms, about what might happen inthe future, about what would happen if certain actionswere taken. Central to this development was RonaldFisher. Over the course of his life he was responsiblefor many of the major conceptual advances instatistics. This is particularly illustrated by his 1922paper, in which he introduced many of the conceptswhich remain fundamental to our understanding ofhow to extract meaning from data, right to the presentday. It is no exaggeration to say that Fisher’s work, asillustrated by the ideas he described and developedin this paper, underlies all modern science, andmuch more besides. This commentary was writtento celebrate the 350th anniversary of the journalPhilosophical Transactions of the Royal Society

Henrion M, Mortlock DJ, Hand DJ, et al., 2013, Classification and anomaly detection for astronomical survey data, Astrostatistical Challenges for the New Astronomy, Pages: 149-184, ISBN: 9781461435082
© Springer Science+Business Media New York 2013. All rights reserved. We present two statistical techniques for astronomical problems: a stargalaxy separator for the UKIRT Infrared Deep Sky Survey (UKIDSS) and a novel anomaly detection method for cross-matched astronomical datasets. The star-galaxy separator is a statistical classification method which outputs class membership probabilities rather than class labels and allows the use of prior knowledge about the source populations. Deep Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) data from the multiply imaged Stripe 82 region are used to check the results from our classifier, which compares favourably with the UKIDSS pipeline classification algorithm. The anomaly detection method addresses the problem posed by objects having different sets of recorded variables in cross-matched datasets. This prevents the use of methods unable to handle missing values and makes direct comparison between objects difficult. For each source, our method computes anomaly scores in subspaces of the observed feature space and combines them to an overall anomaly score. The proposed technique is very general and can easily be used in applications other than astronomy. The properties and performance of our method are investigated using both real and simulated datasets.
