# Random Variables, Their Properties, and Deviational Ellipses: In Map Point and Excel, v 4.0

Abstract

This book is a practical reference guide accompanied with an Excel Workbook. This book gives an elementary introduction of the weighted standard deviational ellipse. This book also presents the computational aspects of the weighted exponential distributions as well. For the examples given, calculations are performed using VBA for Excel. This book makes comparisons and shows the computations via VBA for Excel using the likelihood functions with spatial data of the weighted ellipses. Lastly, the book covers spherical statistics. Throughout the text, the reader can see how to perform these difficult calculations and learn to adapt the code for his research.
