An Introduction to Statistical Learning

with Applications in R

An Introduction to Statistical Learning provides an accessible overview of the field of statistical learning, an essential toolset for making sense of the vast and complex data sets that have emerged in fields ranging from biology to finance to marketing to astrophysics in the past twenty years. This book presents some of the most important modeling and prediction techniques, along with relevant applications. Topics include linear regression, classification, resampling methods, shrinkage approaches, tree-based methods, support vector machines, clustering, and more. Color graphics and real-world examples are used to illustrate the methods presented. Since the goal of this textbook is to facilitate the use of these statistical learning techniques by practitioners in science, industry, and other fields, each chapter contains a tutorial on implementing the analyses and methods presented in R, an extremely popular open source statistical software platform.
Two of the authors co-wrote The Elements of Statistical Learning (Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, 2nd edition 2009), a popular reference book for statistics and machine learning researchers. An Introduction to Statistical Learning covers many of the same topics, but at a level accessible to a much broader audience. This book is targeted at statisticians and non-statisticians alike who wish to use cutting-edge statistical learning techniques to analyze their data. The text assumes only a previous course in linear regression and no knowledge of matrix algebra.

'"This book by James, Witten, Hastie, and Tibshirani was a great pleasure to read, and I was extremely surprised by it and the available material. In my opinion, it is the best book for teaching statistical learning approaches to undergraduate and master students in statistics. ... All in all, this is a great textbook for teaching an introductory course in statistical learning. ... In my opinion, there is no better book for teaching modern statistical learning at the introductory level." (Andreas Ziegler, Biometrical Journal, Vol. 58 (3), May, 2016)"This book has a very strong advantage that sets it well ahead of the competition when it comes to learning about machine learning: it covers all of the necessary details that one has to know in order to apply or implement a machine learning algorithm in a real-world problem. Hence, this book will definitely be of interest to readers from many fields, ranging from computer science to business administration and marketing." (Charalambos Poullis, Computing Reviews, September, 2014)"The book provides a good introduction to R. The code for all the statistical methods introduced in the book is carefully explained. ... the book will certainly be useful to many people (including me). I will surely use many examples, labs and datasets from this book in my own lectures." (Pierre Alquier, Mathematical Reviews, July, 2014)"The stated purpose of this book is to facilitate the transition of statistical learning to mainstream. ... it adds information by including more detail and R code to some of the topics in Elements of Statistical Learning. ... I am having a lot of fun playing with the code that goes with book. I am glad that this was written." (Mary Anne, Cats and Dogs with Data, maryannedata.com, June, 2014)"This book (ISL) is a great Master's level introduction to statistical learning: statistics for complex datasets. ... the homework problems in ISL are at a Master's level for students who want to learn how to use statistical learning methods to analyze data. ... ISL contains 12 very valuable R labs that show how to use many of the statistical learning methods with the R package ISLR ... ." (David Olive, Technometrics, Vol. 56 (2), May, 2014)"Written by four experts of the field, this book offers an excellent entry to statistical learning to a broad audience, including those without strong background in mathematics. ... The end-of-chapter exercises make the book an ideal text for both classroom learning and self-study. ... The book is suitable for anyone interested in using statistical learning tools to analyze data. It can be used as a textbook for advanced undergraduate and master's students in statistics or related quantitative fields." (Jianhua Z. Huang, Journal of Agricultural, Biological, and Environmental Statistics, Vol. 19, 2014)"It aims to introduce modern statistical learning methods to students, researchers and practitioners who are primarily interested in analysing data and want to be confined only with the implementation of the statistical methodology and subsequent interpretation of the results. ... the book also demonstrates how to apply these methods using various R packages by providing detailed worked examples using interesting real data applications." (Klaus Nordhausen, International Statistical Review, Vol. 82 (1), 2014)"The book is structured in ten chapters covering tools for modeling and mining of complex real life data sets. ... The style is suitable for undergraduates and researchers ... and the understanding of concepts is facilitated by the exercises, both practical and theoretical, which accompany every chapter." (Irina Ioana Mohorianu, zbMATH, Vol. 1281, 2014)"The book excels in providing the theoretical and mathematical basis for machine learning, and now at long last, a practical view with the inclusion of R programming examples. It is the latte

Gareth James is a professor of statistics at University of Southern California. He has published an extensive body of methodological work in the domain of statistical learning with particular emphasis on high-dimensional and functional data. The conceptual framework for this book grew out of his MBA elective courses in this area.

Daniela Witten is an associate professor of biostatistics and statistics at the University of Washington.Her research focuses largely on high-dimensional statistical machine learning. She has contributed to the translation of statistical learning techniques to the field of genomics, through collaborations and as a member of the Institute of Medicine committee that led to the report Evolution of Translational Omics.

Trevor Hastie and Robert Tibshirani are professors of statistics at Stanford University, and are co-authors of the successful textbook Elements of Statistical Learning. Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling software and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves and surfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap.
