About This Special Issue
Computational statistics, or statistical computing, is the interface between statistics and computer science. It is the area of computational science (or scientific computing) specific to the mathematical science of statistics. This area is also developing rapidly, leading to calls that a broader concept of computing should be taught as part of general statistical education. This journal fosters the publication of applications and methodological research in the field of computational statistics. It provides a forum for computer scientists, mathematicians, and statisticians working in a variety of areas in statistics, including biometrics, econometrics, data analysis, graphics, simulation, algorithms, knowledge-based systems, and Bayesian computing.

    Abstract: For a long period of time, Ethiopia has involved in foreign trade and experienced trade deficit several time in the past. This deficit can be largely explained by the unequal terms of trade between agricultural commodities (the country's major export) and capital goods (the country’s major import). The core objective of study was to model the balan... Show More

    Abstract: The present article derives an expression for classical statistical entropy of black hole using Maxwell- Boltzmann statistics and shows that the classical statistical entropy is directly proportional to the area of event horizon of black hole leading the result as SbhαA(r). No primary and secondary data is used in this paper. We have designed the w... Show More
