This volume presents 71 articles dealing with models and methods of data analysis and classification, statistics and stochastics, information systems and text analysis as well as manifold applications. Eight sections have been arranged: Data Analysis and Classification. Neural Networks and Pattern Recognition. Statistical Models and Methods. Information Systems: Design and Implementation. Text Analysis and Information Retrieval. Applications in Medicine. Applications in Economics and Social Sciences. Applications in Archaeology, Biology, Linguistics and Dialectometry. The grouping shows how theoretical aspects, applications and interdisciplinarities are interrelated in many respects.
