P Das
Date:2014
Publisher:New Delhi : Springer India : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book dwells mainly on the optimality aspects of mixture designs. As mixture models are a special case of regression models, a general discussion on regression designs has been presented, which includes topics like continuousdesigns, de la Garza p henomenon, Loewner order domination, Equivalence theorems for different optimality criteria and standard optimality results for single variable polynomial regression and multivariate linear and quadraticregression models. This is followed by a review of t he available literature on estimation of parameters in mixture models. Based on recent research findings, the volume also introduces optimal mixture designs for estimation of optimummixing proportions in different mixture models, which include Scheffs qua dratic model, Darroch-Waller model, log- contrast model, mixture-amount models, random coefficient models and multi-response model. Robust mixture designsand mixture designs in blocks have been also reviewed. Moreover, some applications of mixture designs in areas like agriculture, pharmaceutics and food and beverages have been presented. Familiarity with the basic concepts of designand analysis of experiments, along with the concept of optimality criteria are desirable prerequisites for a clear understan ding of the book. It is likely to be helpful to both theoreticians and practitioners working in the area ofmixture experiments

Note:Statistical shape analysis is a geometrical analysis from a set of shapes in which statistics are measured to describe geometrical properties from similar shapes or different groups, for instance, the difference between male andfemale Gorilla skull s hapes, normal and pathological bone shapes, etc. Some of the important aspects of shape analysis are to obtain a measure of distance between shapes, to estimate average shapes from a (possibly random) sample andto estimate shape variability in a sample[1] . One of the main methods used is principal component analysis. Specific applications of shape analysis may befound in archaeology, architecture, biology, geography, geology, agriculture,genetics, medical imaging, security applications such as face recogn ition, entertainment industry (movies, games), computer-aided design and manufacturing. This is a proposal for a new Brief on statistical shape analysis and thevarious new parametric and non-parametric methods utilized to facilitate shape analysis.

Note:Construction of various models of objects under uncertainty is one of the most important problems in modern decision making theory. 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:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of stochastic programming is to find optimal decisions in problems which involve uncertain data. This field is currently developing rapidly with contributions from many disciplines including operations research,mathematics, and probability. A t the same time, it is now being applied in a wide variety of subjects ranging from agriculture to financial planning and from industrial engineering to computer networks. This textbook provides a firstcourse in stochastic programming suitable for student s with a basic knowledge of linear programming, elementary analysis, and probability. The authors aim to present a broad overview of the main themes and methods of the subject. Itsprime goal is to help students develop an intuition on how to model uncerta inty into mathematical problems, what uncertainty changes bring to the decision process, and what techniques help to manage uncertainty in solving the problems.In this extensively updated new edition there is more material on methods and examples includin g several new approaches for discrete variables, new results on risk measures in modeling and Monte Carlo sampling methods, a new chapter onrelationships to other methods including approximate dynamic programming, robust optimization and online methods. T he book is highly illustrated with chapter summaries and many examples and exercises. Students, researchers andpractitioners in operations research and the optimization area will find it particularly of interest. Review of First Edition: The discussion on modeling issues, the large number of examples used to illustrate the material, and thebreadth of the coverage make'Introduction to Stochastic Programming' an ideal textbook for the area.

Note:Factorial design plays a fundamental role in efficient and economic experimentation with multiple input variables and is extremely popular in various fields of application, including engineering, agriculture, medicine and lifesciences. Factorial expe riments are often used in case studies in quality management and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS). The last twenty years have witnessed a significant growth of interest in optimal factorial designs, under possiblemodel uncertainty, via the minimum aberration a nd related criteria. The present book gives, for the first time in book form, a comprehensive and up-to-date account of this modern theory. Many major classes of designs are covered in thebook. While maintaining a high level of mathematical rigor, it also provides extensive design tables for research and practical purposes. In order to equip the readers with the necessary background, some foundational concepts andresults are developed in Chapter 2. Apart from being useful to researchers and practitioners, the book can form the core of a graduate level course in experimental design. It can also be used for courses in combinatorial designs orcombinatorial mathematics. Rahul Mukerjee is a Professor of Statistics at the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta . Formerly, he was a Professor at the Indian Statistical Institute. He is a co-author of four other researchmonographs including two from Springer and one from Wiley. A Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Indian National Science Aca demy, Professor Mukerjee has served on the editorial boards of several internationaljournals.

Note:Analysis of variance (ANOVA) models have become widely used tools and play a fundamental role in much of the application of statistics today. In particular, ANOVA models involving random effects have found widespread applicationto experimental design in a variety of fields requiring measurements of variance, including agriculture, biology, animal breeding, applied genetics, econometrics, quality control, medicine, engineering, and social sciences. Thistwo-volume work is a comprehensive presentation o f different methods and techniques for point estimation, interval estimation, and tests of hypotheses for linear models involving random effects. Both Bayesian and repeated samplingprocedures are considered. Volume I examines models with balanced data (or thogonal models) Volume II studies models with unbalanced data (nonorthogonal models). Features and Topics: * Systematic treatment of the commonly employedcrossed and nested classification models used in analysis of variance designs * Detailed and thoroug h discussion of certain random effects models not commonly found in texts at the introductory or intermediate level * Numericalexamples to analyze data from a wide variety of disciplines * Many worked examples containing computer outputs from standard sof tware packages such as SAS, SPSS, and BMDP for each numerical example * Extensive exercise sets at the endof each chapter * Numerous appendices with background reference concepts, terms, and results * Balanced coverage of theory, methods, and practical ap plications * Complete citations of important and related works at the end of eachchapter, as well as an extensive general bibliography Accessible to readers with only a modest mathematical and statistical background, the work will appeal to a broad audien ce of students, researchers, and practitioners in themathematical, life, social, and engineering sciences. It may be used as a textbook in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, or as a refere
