Title:Visualizing Time [electronic resource] : Designing Graphical Representations for Statistical Data
Author(s): Graham Wills
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Art, or Science? Which of these is the right way to think of the field of visualization? This is not an easy question to answer, even for those who have many years experience in making graphical depictions of data with a view tohelp people understand it and take action. In this book, Graham Wills bridges the gap between the art and the science of visually representing statistical data. He does not simply give rules and advice, but bases these on generalprinciples and provides a clear path between the m. This book is concerned with the graphical representation of time data and is written to cover a range of different users. A visualization expert designing tools for displaying timewill find it valuable, but so also should a financier assembling a repo rt in a spreadsheet, or a medical researcher trying to display gene sequences using a commercial statistical package

Title:Risk and Meaning [electronic resource] : Adversaries in Art, Science and Philosophy
Author(s): Nicolas Bouleau
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This richly illustrated book is an exploration of how chance and risk, on the one hand, and meaning or significance on the other, compete for the limelight in art, in philosophy, and in science. In modern society, prudence andprobability calculation permeate our daily lives. Yet it is clear for all to see that neither cautious bank regulations nor mathematics have prevented economic crises from occurring time and again. Nicolas Bouleau argues that it is themeaning we assign to an event that determine s the perceived risk, and that we generally turn a blind eye to this important fact, because the word meaning is itself awkward to explain. He tackles this fundamental question throughexamples taken from cultural fields ranging from painting, architecture , and music, to poetry, biology, and astronomy. This enables the reader to view overwhelming risks in a different light. Bouleau clarifies that the most importantthing in a time of uncertainty is to think of prudence on a higher level, one that truly addr esses the various subjective interpretations of the world

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In these pages, the reader can follow the engaging saga of astronomical exploration in the southern hemisphere, in a modern merger of aesthetics, science, and a story of human endeavor. This book is truly a celebration ofsouthern skies. Jerry Bonnell , Editor - Astronomy Picture of the Day The southern sky became accessible to scientific scrutiny only a few centuries ago, after the first European explorers ventured south of the equator. Modernobserving and imaging techniques have since revealed what s eems like a new Universe, previously hidden below the horizon, a fresh astronomical bounty of beauty and knowledge uniquely different from the northern sky. The authors havecrafted a book that brings this hidden Universe to all, regardless of location or latitude. Treasures of the Southern Sky celebrates the remarkable beauty and richness of the southern sky in words and with world-class imagery. In part,a photographic anthology of deep sky wonders south of the celestial equator, this book also celebrates the human story of southern astronomy with an engaging and detailed history of key contributors to southern sky exploration. Theaccompanying text provides the reader with intriguing facts and useful information about the featured objects. The volume is a rranged by southern hemisphere season and brings to the printed page many of the most provocative andbeautiful astronomical images of our time, many in print for the first time. The collection of imagery covers a full range of deep sky astronomical object s, including the familiar and iconic as well as those that are more obscure butno less intriguing. Masterful, state of the art professional and amateur astrophotography highlights the authors' carefully selected deep sky treasures. DUST JACKET: The beauty and richness of the southern night sky is legendary.From southern latitudes the finest globular clusters in the sky are visible to the unaided eye, as are the nearest galaxies, the Magellanic Cloud

Title:Symmetry Rules [electronic resource] : How Science and Nature are founded on Symmetry
Author(s): Joe Rosen
Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When we use science to describe and understand the world around us, we are in essence grasping nature through symmetry. In fact, modern theoretical physics suggests that symmetry is a, if not the, foundational principle of nature.Emphasizing the conc epts, this book leads the reader coherently and comprehensively into the fertile field of symmetry and its applications. Among the most important applications considered are the fundamental forces of nature and theUniverse. It is shown that the Universe c annot possess exact symmetry, which is a principle of fundamental significance. Curie's principle - which states that the symmetry of the effect is at least that of the cause - featuresprominently. An introduction to group theory, the mathematical languag e of symmetry, is included. This book will convince all interested readers of the importance of symmetry in science. Furthermore, it will serve as valuablebackground reading for all students in the physical sciences

Title:The Grammar of Graphics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Leland Wilkinson
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book was written for statisticians, computer scientists, geographers, researchers, and others interested in visualizing data. It presents a unique foundation for producing almost every quantitative graphic found inscientific journals, newspapers , statistical packages, and data visualization systems. While the tangible results of this work have been several visualization software libraries, this book focuses on the deep structures involved inproducing quantitative graphics from data. What are the rules that underlie the production of pie charts, bar charts, scatterplots, function plots, maps, mosaics, and radar charts? Those less interested in the theoretical andmathematical foundations can still get a sense of the richness and structure of the s ystem by examining the numerous and often unique color graphics it can produce. The second edition is almost twice the size of the original, with sixnew chapters and substantial revision. Much of the added material makes this book suitable for survey cour ses in visualization and statistical graphics. From reviews of the first edition: Destined to become a landmark in statisticalgraphics, this book provides a formal description of graphics, particularly static graphics, playing much the same role for graph ics as probability theory played for statistics. Journal of the American Statistical AssociationWilkinsons careful scholarship shows around every corner. This is a tour de force of the highest order.
