Astronomical surveys produce large amounts of photometric, spectroscopic and time-series data. Object classification, parameter determination, novelty detection and the discovery of structure in these are challenging tasks. This book, featuring contributions from both astronomers and computer scientists, discusses a broad range of astronomical problems and shows how various machine learining and statistical analysis techniques are being used to solve them.
