Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In a world in which we are constantly surrounded by data, figures, and statistics, it is imperative to understand and to be able to use quantitative methods. Statistical models and methods are among the most important tools ineconomic analysis, decis ion-making and business planning. This textbook, Exploratory Data Analysis in Business and Economics, aims to familiarise students of economics and business as well as practitioners in firms with the basicprinciples, techniques, and applications of descri ptive statistics and data analysis. Drawing on practical examples from business settings, it demonstrates the basic descriptive methods of univariate and bivariate analysis. Thetextbook covers a range of subject matter, from data collection and scaling to the presentation and univariate analysis of quantitative data, and also includes analytic procedures for assessing bivariate relationships. It does notconfine itself to presenting descriptive statistics, but also addresses the use of computer programmes such as Excel, SPSS, and STATA, thus treating all of the topics typically covered in a university course on descriptive statistics.The German edition of this textbook is one of the bestsellers on the German market for literature in statistics

Note:Many economic and social surveys are designed as panel studies, which provide important data for describing social changes and testing causal relations between social phenomena. This textbook shows how to manage, describe, andmodel these kinds of dat a. It presents models for continuous and categorical dependent variables, focusing either on the level of these variables at different points in time or on their change over time. It covers fixed and randomeffects models, models for change scores and even t history models. All statistical methods are explained in an application-centered style using research examples from scholarly journals, which can be replicated by the reader throughdata provided on the accompanying website. As all models are compared to each other, it provides valuable assistance with choosing the right modelin applied research. The textbook is directed at master and doctoral students as wellas applied researchers in the social sciences, psychology, business administration and economics . Readers should be familiar with linear regression and have a good understanding of ordinary least squares estimation

Note:The importance of supply chain management has increased over the last few decades. Today, entire supply chains are competing with each other instead of individual companies. As such, supply chain management has become a way forcompanies to set themse lves apart from competing companies and their supply chains. Interestingly, supply chain management mainly focuses on efficiency-oriented topics rather than effectiveness-driven issues, in particular the designof supply chains from manufacturing sites dow nstream, instead of upstream from the customer. The Supply Chain Differentiation Guide offers a modern approach to supply chain management. While for many years one-size-fits-allapproaches to supply chain management were very common, the current efforts o f managers and academics alike focus on the simultaneous management of multiple supply chains. Despite the interest of the business sector in the managementof multiple supply chains, academia has largely neglected this topic to date. The Supply Chain Diff erentiation Guide addresses this shortcoming, introducing both established and cutting-edge management methods to the context of supplychain differentiation and providing inspirations for how to improve corporate operations

Note:Exceptional managers know that they can create competitive advantages by basing decisions on performance response under alternative scenarios. To create these advantages, managers need to understand how to use statistics toprovide information on perf ormance response under alternative scenarios. This updated edition ofthe populartext helps business students develop competitive advantages for use in their future careers as decision makers. Studentslearn to build models using logic and experience, produ ce statistics using Excel 2013 with shortcuts, and translate results into implications for decision makers. The author emphasizes communicating results effectively in plain Englishand with compelling graphics in the form of memos and PowerPoints. Statisti cs, from basics to sophisticated models, are illustrated with examples using real data such as students will encounter in their roles as managers. A number ofexamples focus on business in emerging global markets with particular emphasis on emerging market s in Latin America, China and India. Results are linked to implications for decision making with sensitivity analyses to illustrate howalternate scenarios can be compared. Chapters include screenshots to make it easy to conduct analyses in Excel 2013 with time-saving shortcuts expected in the business world. PivotTables and PivotCharts, used frequently in businesses,are introduced from the start. The Third Edition features Monte Carlo simulation in three chapters, as a tool to illustrate the range of poss ible outcomes from decision makers assumptions and underlying uncertainties. Model buildingwith regression is presented as a process, adding levels of sophistication, with chapters on multicollinearity and remedies, forecasting and model validation, autoc orrelation and remedies, indicator variables to represent segmentdifferences, and seasonality, structural shifts or shocks in time series models.

Note:R for Business Analytics looks at some of the most common tasks performed by business analysts and helps the user navigate the wealth of information in R and its 4000 packages. With this information the reader can select thepackages that can help pro cess the analytical tasks with minimum effort and maximum usefulness. The use of Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) is emphasized in this book to further cut downand bend the famous learning curve in learningR. This book is aimed to help you kick-start with analytics including chapters on data visualization, code examples on web analytics and social media analytics, clustering, regression models, text mining, data mining models andforecasting. The book tries to expose the reader to a breadth of business anal ytics topics without burying the user in needless depth. The included references and links allow the reader to pursue business analytics topics. Thisbook is aimed at business analysts with basic programming skills for using R for Business Analytics. Note the scope of the book is neither statistical theory nor graduate level research for statistics, but rather it is for businessanalytics practitioners. Business analytics (BA) refers to the field ofexploration and investigation of data generated by busines ses. Business Intelligence (BI) is the seamless dissemination of information through the organization,which primarily involves business metrics both past and current for the use of decision support in businesses. Data Mining (DM) is the process of discove ring new patterns from large data using algorithms and statistical methods. Todifferentiate between the three, BI is mostly current reports, BA is models to predict and strategizeand DM matches patterns in big data. The R statistical software is the faste st growing analytics platform in the world, and isestablished in both academia and corporations for robustness, reliability and accuracy.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The idea of modeling the behavior of phenomena at multiple scales has become a useful tool in both pure and applied mathematics. Fractal-based techniques lie at the heart of this area, as fractals are inherently multiscaleobjects they very often desc ribe nonlinear phenomena better than traditional mathematical models. In many cases they have been used for solving inverse problems arising in models described by systems of differential equations anddynamical systems. Fractal-Based Methods in Analysis draws together, for the first time in book form, methods and results from almost twenty years of research in this topic, including new viewpoints and results in many of thechapters. For each topic the theoretical framework is carefully explained using exa mples and applications. The second chapter on basic iterated function systems theory is designed to be used as the basis for a course and includesmany exercises. This chapter, along with the three background appendices on topological and metric spaces, m easure theory, and basic results from set-valued analysis, make the book suitable for self-study or as a source book for agraduate course. The other chapters illustrate many extensions and applications of fractal-based methods to different areas. This boo k is intended for graduate students and researchers in applied mathematics, engineering and socialsciences. Herb Kunze is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Guelph. Davide La Torre is an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics, Business and Statistics, University of Milan.Franklin Mendivil is a Professor in the Department ofMathematics and Statistics, Acadia University.Edward R.

Regression models are some of the most prevalent tools for modeling under uncertainty and arewidely applied in differe nt branches of science such as in industrial research, agriculture, medicine, and business and economics. Regression Analysis Under A Priori Parameter Restrictions will be of interest to a broad spectrum ofreaders in applied mathematics, mathematical stat istics, identification theory, systems analysis, econometrics, finance, optimization, and other scientific disciplines. Requiring a background in algebra, probability theory,mathematical statistics, and mathematical programming, this work may also be a us eful supplement for advanced graduate courses in estimation theory, regression analysis, mathematical statistics, econometrics, mathematical programmingand optimal control, and stochastic optimization. The material contained in this monographsuccessfully combines interesting theoretical results with methods and algorithms for solving practical problems. It focuses on theconstruction of regression models with linear and non-linear constraint inequalities and is the first book in which the theoretical resul ts lying in the background of construction and studying regression models with inequalityconstraints on parameters are presented systematically and solidly. Problems are described and studied in a clear, precise, and rigorous method and include: calculati on of estimates for regression parameters, determination of theirasymptotic properties and accuracy of estimation, point and interval prediction by the regression, parameters of which are estimated under inequality constraints. The authors approach lends itself to numerous applications in variouspractical problems, several of which are discussed in detail

Note:Exceptional managers know that they can create competitive advantages by basing decisions on performance response under alternative scenarios. To create these advantages, managers need to understand how to use statistics toprovide information on perf ormance response under alternative scenarios. This updated edition ofthe populartext helps business students develop competitive advantages for use in their future careers as decision makers. Studentslearn to build models using logic and experience, produ ce statistics using Excel 2010 with shortcuts, and translate results into implications for decision makers. The author emphasizes communicating results effectively in plain Englishand with compelling graphics in the form of memos and PowerPoints. Statisti cs, from basics to sophisticated models, are illustrated with examples using real data such as students will encounter in their roles as managers. A number ofexamples focus on business in emerging global markets with particular emphasis on China and India . Results are linked to implications for decision making with sensitivity analyses to illustrate how alternate scenarios can be compared.Chapters include screenshots to make it easy to conduct analyses in Excel 2010 with time-saving shortcuts expected in the business world. PivotTables and PivotCharts, used frequently in businesses, are introduced from the start. MonteCarlo simulation is introduced early, as a tool to illustrate the range of possible outcomes from decision makers assumptions and underlyin g uncertainties. Model building with regression is presented as a process, adding levels ofsophistication, with chapters on multicollinearity and remedies, forecasting and model validation, autocorrelation and remedies, indicator variables to represent se gment differences, and seasonality, structural shifts or shocks in timeseries models. Special applications in market segmentation and portfolio analysis are offered, and an introduction to conj

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity, Cognition and the City aims at a deeper understanding of urbanism, while invoking, on an equal footing, the contributions both the hard and soft sciences have made, and are still making, when grappling with the manyissues and facets of re gional planning and dynamics. In this work, the author goes beyond merely seeing the city as a self-organized, emerging pattern of some collective interaction between many stylized urban agents he makesthe crucial step of attributing cognition to his age nts and thus raises, for the first time, the question on how to deal with a complex system composed of many interacting complex agents in clearly defined settings. Accordingly, theauthor eventually addresses issues of practical relevance for urban planner s and decision makers. The book unfolds its message in a largely nontechnical manner, so as to provide a broad interdisciplinary readership with insights,ideas, and other stimuli to encourage further research with the twofold aim of further pushing back the boundaries of complexity science and emphasizing the all-important interrelation of hard and soft sciences in recognizing thecognitive sciences as another necessary ingredient for meaningful urban studies

Title:The Linear Ordering Problem [electronic resource] Exact and Heuristic Methods in Combinatorial Optimization

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complex optimization problems abound in the real world. In the face of these challenges, established methods often fall short of providing solutions. However, exact and heuristic techniques are dramatically enhancingour ability to solve significant p ractical problems in the world of optimization. They are changing the landscape in the field, broadening the frontiers of the possible, and allowing us to engage effectively with a whole new range ofchallenges. This monograph sets out state-of-the-art opt imization methods for tackling the linear ordering problem (LOP). Whereas important applications in business, engineering and economics lie beyond the reach of methodologiesthat have been the focus of academic research for three decades, the fresh approac hes set out in this volume provide practical solutions to the LOP. The focus on the LOP does not limit the monographs scope and applicability,however. The exact and heuristic techniques outlined in these pages can be put to use in any number of combinator ial optimization problems. While the authors employ the LOP to illustrate cutting-edge optimization technologies, the bookis also a tutorial on how to design effective and successful implementations of exact and heuristic procedures alike. The information in these pages provides readers with a toolkit that can be employed in a variety of settings. As aresult, the book will be of great interest to researchers and practitioners in a number of fields, including computer science, mathematics, operations resea rch, management science, industrial engineering, and economics. It is alsosuitable for use as a textbook on issues of practical optimization in a masters course, or as a reference book for engineering optimization algorithms. The authors have sought to ma ke the book accessible to as wide an audience aspossible by providing the reader with basic definitions and concepts in optimization. In addition, the numerous tutorials aid speedy

Note:The book aims at presenting technical and financial features of life insurance, non-life insurance, pension plans. The book has been planned assuming non-actuarial readers as its natural target, namely - advancedundergraduate and graduate students in Economics, Business and Finance - professionals and technicians operating in Insurance and pension areas, whose job may regard investments, risk analysis, financial reporting, etc, and henceimplies a communication with actuarial professionals and manager s. Given the assumed target, the book focuses on technical and financial aspects of insurance, however avoiding the use of complex mathematical tools. In this sense, thebook can be placed at some midpoint of the existing literature, part of which adopts m ore formal approaches to insurance problems implying the use of non-elementary mathematics, whereas another part addresses practical questionstotally avoiding even simple mathematical tools (which, in our opinion, can conversely provide effective tools fo r presenting technical and financial features of the insurance business)
