### Intel® Summary Statistics Library 1.0 Update

## Product Overview

Intel® Summary Statistics Library is a set of algorithms for parallel processing of multi-dimensional datasets. It contains functions for initial analysis of raw data which allow investigating structure of datasets and get their basic characteristics, estimates, and internal dependencies.

## Features and Benefits

The library provides rich set of tools for estimation of various statistical characteristics of a dataset:

**Basic statistics.** Algebraic and central moments up to 4th order, skewness, kurtosis, variation coefficient, quantiles and order statistics.

**Estimation of Dependencies. **Variance-covariance/correlation matrix, partial variance-covariance/correlation matrix, pooled/group variance-covariance/correlation matrix.

**Data with Outliers.** The Intel® Summary Statistics Library contains a tool for detection of outliers in a dataset. Also the library allows computing robust estimates of the covariance matrix and mean in presence of outliers.

**Missing Values. **Data which contains missing values can be effectively processed using modern algorithms implemented in the package.

**Out-of-Memory Datasets.** Many algorithms of the library support data which cannot fit into the physical memory processing huge data arrays in portions. Specifically, variance-covariance matrix estimators, algebraic and central moments, skewness, kurtosis, and variation coefficient can process a dataset in portions.

**Various Data Storage Formats.** The Intel® Summary Statistics Library supports in-rows and in-columns storage formats for datasets, full and packed format for variance-covariance matrix.

The Intel® Summary Statistics Library uses recent advances of statistics by providing modern algorithms that enhance accuracy and performance of statistical computations. The library is optimized for latest multi-core Intel processors what allows to achieve significant performance benefits compared to traditional statistical packages and libraries.
