By Maurizio Carpita, Eugenio Brentari, El Mostafa Qannari

The e-book, belonging to the sequence “Studies in Theoretical and utilized statistics– chosen Papers from the Statistical Societies”, offers a peer-reviewed number of contributions on appropriate themes equipped through the editors at the get together of the SIS 2013 Statistical convention "Advances in Latent Variables. equipment, versions and Applications", held on the division of Economics and administration of the college of Brescia from June 19 to 21, 2013.

The concentration of the e-book is on advances in statistical tools for analyses with latent variables. actually, lately, there was expanding curiosity during this huge examine quarter from either a theoretical and an utilized standpoint, because the statistical latent variable process permits the powerful modeling of advanced real-life phenomena in quite a lot of study fields.

A significant objective of the quantity is to collect articles written by way of statisticians from varied examine fields, which current diversified ways and studies concerning the research of unobservable variables and the examine of the relationships among them.

Further, one of the main arguments in favour of considering the Octavia a not original tragedy of Seneca is that one of the characters of the story is named Seneca, which is again reflected by our principal component analysis.
