Editorial Introduction Suppose a table of data concerning three variables x , y and z is given, forexample:If we look at the values of x and y we may observe that when x is thesame also y is the same. The converse is not true: y can be the same ona row without x being the same. In the light of this data we say that yfunctionally depends on x but not conversely. If the conc
