Title:For Better or For Worse? Collaborative Couples in the Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Annette Lykknes
Donald L Opitz
Brigitte Van Tiggelen
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this volume, a distinguished set of international scholars examine the nature of collaboration between life partners in the sciences, with particular attention to the ways in which personal and professional dynamics can fosteror inhibit scientific practice. Breaking from traditional gender analyses which focus on divisions of labor and the assignment of credit, the studies scrutinize collaboration as a variable process between partners living in thenineteenth and twentieth centuries who were marri ed and divorced, heterosexual and homosexual, aristocratic and working-class and politically right and left. The contributors analyze cases shaped by their particular geographicallocations, ranging from retreat settings like the English countryside and Wo ods Hole, Massachusetts, to university laboratories and urbancenters in Berlin, Stockholm, Geneva and London. The volume demonstrates how the terms andmeanings of collaboration, variably shaped by disciplinary imperatives, cultural mores, and the agency o f the collaborators themselves, illuminate critical intellectual and institutional developments in the modern sciences

Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is an introduction to the dynamics of reaction-diffusion systems, with a focus on fronts and stationary spatial patterns. Emphasis is on systems that are non-standard in the sense that either the transport is not simplyclassical diffusion ( Brownian motion) or the system is not homogeneous. A important feature is the derivation of the basic phenomenological equations from the mesoscopic system properties. Topics addressed include transport withinertia, described by persistent random walks an d hyperbolic reaction-transport equations and transport by anomalous diffusion, in particular subdiffusion, where the mean square displacement grows sublinearly with time. In particularreaction-diffusion systems are studied where the medium is in turn eit her spatially inhomogeneous, compositionally heterogeneous or spatially discrete. Applications span a vast range of interdisciplinary fields and the systemsconsidered can be as different as human or animal groups migrating under external influences, popul ation ecology and evolution, complex chemical reactions, or networks of biological cells. Several chapters treat these applications indetail

Note:The book introduces the basic concepts and methods that are useful in the statistical analysis and modeling of DNA-based marker and phenotypic data that arise in agriculture, forrestry, experimental biology, and other fields. Itconcentrates on the li nkage analysis of markers, map construction and quantitative trait locus (QTL) mapping and assumes a background in regression analysis and maximum likelihood approaches. The strengths of this book lie in theconstruction of general models and algorithms fo r linkage analysis and QTL mapping in any kind of crossed pedigrees initiated with inbred lines of crops and plant and animal model systems or outbred lines in forest trees and wildlifespecies. The book includes a detailed description of each approach and the step-by-step demonstration of live-example analyses designed to explain the utilization and usefulness of statistical methods. The book also includes exercisesets and computer codes for all the analyses used. This book can serve as a textbook for gra duates and senior undergraduates in genetics, agronomy, forest biology, plant breeding and animal sciences. It will also be useful toresearchers and other professionals in the areas of statistics, biology and agriculture.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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
