Computational Statistics [entry]

SpringerReference   unpublished
There seems to be an agreement between textbook writers that computational statistics is statistics that uses computation, often a lot of computation, while statistical computing is computational mathematics for statisticians. Both fields are hybrids, but it seems that in computational statistics the emphasis is on the statistics and in statistical computation the emphasis is on the tools. Of course, not everybody rigorously uses the distinction, and often it is quite difficult to draw the line.
