Title:Software Reliability Modeling [electronic resource] : Fundamentals and Applications
Author(s): Shigeru Yamada
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Software reliability is one of the most important characteristics of software product quality. Its measurement and management technologies during the software product life cycle are essential to produce and maintainquality/reliable software systems. Part 1 of this book introduces several aspects of software reliability modeling and its applications. Hazard rate and nonhomogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) models are investigated particularly forquantitative software reliability assessment. Further, impe rfect debugging and software availability models are discussed with reference to incorporating practical factors of dynamic software behavior. Three software managementproblems are presented as application technologies of software reliability models: the optimal software release problem, the statistical testing-progress control, and the optimal testing-effort allocation problem. Part 2 of the bookdescribes several recent developments in software reliability modeling and their applications as quantitative techniques for software quality/reliability measurement and assessment. The discussion includes a quality engineeringanalysis of human factors affecting software reliability during the design review phase, which is the upper stream of software development , as well as software reliability growth models based on stochastic differential equations anddiscrete calculus during the testing phase, which is the lower stream. The final part of the book provides an illustration of quality-oriented software managemen t analysis by applying the multivariate analysis method and the existingsoftware reliability growth models to actual process monitoring data

Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published

Title:Using Commercial Amateur Astronomical Spectrographs [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jeffrey L Hopkins
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Amateur astronomers interested in learning more about astronomical spectroscopy now have the guide they need. It provides detailed information about how to get started inexpensively with low-resolution spectroscopy, and then howto move on to more adv anced high-resolution spectroscopy. Uniquely, the instructions concentrate very much on the practical aspects of using commercially-available spectroscopes, rather than simply explaining how spectroscopes work.The book includes a clear explanation of the laboratory theory behind astronomical spectrographs, and goes on to extensively cover the practical application of astronomical spectroscopy in detail. Four popular and reasonably-pricedcommercially available diffraction grating spectrographs are used as examples. The first is a low-resolution transmission diffraction grating, the Star Analyser spectrograph. The second is an inexpensive fiber optic coupled benchspectrograph that can be used to learn more about spectroscopy. The third is a newcomer, the AL PY 600 spectrograph. The fourth spectrograph considered is at the other end of the market both in performance and cost, the high-resolutionLhires III. While considerably more expensive, this is a popular and excellent scientific instrument, that allows mo re advanced amateur astronomers to produce scientifically valuable data. With all of these tools in place, the amateurastronomer is well-prepared to forger deeper into the night sky using spectroscopy

Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The author defines Geometric Algebra Computing as the geometrically intuitive development of algorithms using geometric algebra with a focus on their efficient implementation, and the goal of this book is to lay thefoundations for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a powerful, intuitive mathematical language for engineering applications in academia and industry. The related technology is driven by the invention of conformal geometricalgebra as a 5D extension of the 4D projective geometric alg ebra and by the recent progress in parallel processing, and with the specific conformal geometric algebra there is a growing community in recent years applying geometricalgebra to applications in computer vision, computer graphics, and robotics. This book is organized into three parts: in Part I the author focuses on the mathematical foundations in Part II he explains the interactive handling ofgeometric algebra and in Part III he deals with computing technology for high-performance implementations based on geometric algebra as a domain-specific language in standard programming languages such as C++ and OpenCL. The book iswritten in a tutorial style and readers should gain experience with the associated freely available software packages and applications. The book is suitable for students, engineers, and researchers in computer science, computationalengineering, and mathematics

Title:Space-Time Reference Systems [electronic resource]

Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The high accuracy of modern astronomical spatial-temporal reference systems has made them considerably complex. This book offers a comprehensive overview of such systems. It begins with a discussion of The Problem of Time,including recent development s in the art of clock making (e.g., optical clocks) and various time scales. The authors address the definitions and realization of spatial coordinates by reference to remote celestial objects such asquasars. After an extensive treatment of classical equi nox-based coordinates, new paradigms for setting up a celestial reference system are introduced that no longer refer to the translational and rotational motion of the Earth. Therole of relativity in the definition and realization of such systems is clarif ied. The topics presented in this book are complemented by exercises (with solutions). The authors offer a series of files, written in Maple, a standardcomputer algebra system, to help readers get a feel for the various models and orders of magnitude. Bey ond astrometry, the main fields of application of high-precision astronomical spatial-temporal reference systems and frames arenavigation (GPS, interplanetary spacecraft navigation) and global geodynamics, which provide a high-precision Celestial Referenc e System and its link to any terrestrial spatial-temporal reference system. Mankinds urgentenvironmental questions can only be answered in the context of appropriate reference systems in which both aspects, space and time, are realized with a sufficiently high level of accuracy. This book addresses all those interested inhigh-precision reference systems and the various techniques (GPS, Very Long Baseline Interferometry, Satellite Laser Ranging, Lunar Laser Ranging) necessary for their realization, includi ng the production and dissemination of timesignals.

Note:Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) are devices thatenable people tocommunicate via thought alone. Brain signals can be directly translated into messages or commands. Until recently, these devices were used primarily to helppeople who could not move. Ho wever, BCIs are now becoming practical tools for a wide variety of people, in many different situations. What will BCIs in the future be like? Who will use them, and why? This book, written by many of thetop BCI researchers and developers, reviews the lat est progress in the different components of BCIs. Chapters also discuss practical issues in an emerging BCI enabled community. The book is intended both for professionals and forinterested laypeople who are not experts in BCI research

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology develops a wide spectrum of nonlinear optimization applications expressed in the GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) language. The book is highly self-containedand is designed to pres ent applications in a general form that can be easily understood and quickly updated or modified to represent situations from the real world. The book emphasizes the local solutions of the large-scale, complex,continuous nonlinear optimization application s, and the abundant examples in GAMS are highlighted by those involving ODEs, PDEs, and optimal control. The collection of these examples will be useful for software developers andtesters. Chapter one presents aspects concerning the mathematical modeling process in the context of mathematical modeling technologies based on algebraic-oriented modeling languages. The GAMS technology is introduced in Chapter 2,mainly as a system for formulating and solving a large variety of general optimization models. The bulk of the82 nonlinear optimization applications is given in Chapter 3. This book is primarily intended to serve as a reference forgraduate students and for scientists working in various disciplines of industry/mathematical programming that use optimizat ion methods to model and solve problems. It is also well suited as supplementary material for seminars inoptimization, operations research, and decision making, to name a few

Note:The proceedings represent the state of knowledge in the area of algorithmic differentiation (AD). The 31 contributed papers presented at the AD2012 conference cover the application of AD to many areas in science and engineeringas well as aspects of A D theory and its implementation in tools. For all papers the referees, selected from the program committee and the greater community, as well as the editors have emphasized accessibility of the presented ideasalso to non-AD experts. In the AD tools arena new implementations are introduced covering, for example, Java and graphical modeling environments or join the set of existing tools for Fortran. New developments in AD algorithms targetthe efficiency of matrix-operation derivatives, detection and exploit ation of sparsity, partial separability, the treatment of nonsmooth functions, and other high-level mathematical aspects of the numerical computations to bedifferentiated. Applications stem from the Earth sciences, nuclear engineering, fluid dynamics, and chemistry, to name just a few. In many cases the applications in a given area of science or engineering share characteristics thatrequire specific approaches to enable AD capabilities or provide an opportunity for efficiency gains in the derivative compu tation. The description of these characteristics and of the techniques for successfully using AD should makethe proceedings a valuable source of information for users of AD tools

Title:Normal Forms, Melnikov Functions and Bifurcations of Limit Cycles [electronic resource]

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Dynamical system theory has developed rapidly over the past fifty years. It is a subject upon which the theory of limit cycles has a significant impact for both theoretical advances and practical solutions to problems. Hopfbifurcation from a center o r a focus is integral to the theory of bifurcation of limit cycles, for which normal form theory is a central tool. Although Hopf bifurcation has been studied for more than half a century, and normal formtheory for over 100 years, efficient computation in this area is still a challenge with implications for Hilberts 16th problem. This book introduces the most recent developments in this field and provides major advances infundamental theory of limit cycles. Split into two parts, the first focuses on the s tudy of limit cycles bifurcating from Hopf singularity using normal form theory with later application to Hilberts 16th problem, while the secondconsiders near Hamiltonian systems using Melnikov function as the main mathematical tool. Classic topics with new results are presented in a clear and concise manner and are accompanied by the liberal use of illustrations throughout.Containing a wealth of examples and structured algorithms that are treated in detail, a good balance between theoretical and applied topics is demonstrated. By including complete Maple programs within the text, this book also enablesthe reader to reconstruct the majority of formulas provided, facilitating the use of concrete models for study. Through the adoption of an elementary and practical approach, this book will be of use to graduate mathematics studentswishing to study the theory of limit cycles as well as scientists, across a number of disciplines, with an interest in the applications of periodic behavior

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Due to inherent limitations in human sensing organs, most data collected for various purposes contain uncertainties. Even at the rare occasions when accurate data are available, the truthful predictions derived on the data tend tocreate chaotic conse quences. So, to effectively process and make sense out of available data, we need methods to deal with uncertainty inherently existing inside the data. The intent of this monograph is to explore the fundamentaltheory, methods, and techniques of practical application of grey systems theory, initiated by Professor Deng Julong in 1982. This volume presents most of the recent advances of the theory accomplished by scholars from around the world.From studying this book, the reader will not only acquire an over all knowledge of this new theory but also be able to follow the most current research activities. All examples presented are based on practical applications of the theorywhen urgent real-life problems had to be addressed. Last but not the least, this book concludes with three appendices. The first one compares grey systems theory and interval analysis while revealing the fact that interval analysis isa part of grey mathematics. The second appendix presents an array of different approaches of studying unce rtainties. And, the last appendix shows how uncertainties appear using general systems approach

Title:An Introduction to Applied Multivariate Analysis with R [electronic resource]

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The majority of data sets collected by researchers in all disciplines are multivariate, meaning that several measurements, observations, or recordings are taken on each of the units in the data set. These units might be humansubjects, archaeological artifacts, countries, or a vast variety of other things. In a few cases, it may be sensible to isolate each variable and study it separately, but in most instances all the variables need to be examinedsimultaneously in order to fully grasp the structure a nd key features of the data. For this purpose, one or another method of multivariate analysis might be helpful, and it is with such methods that this book is largely concerned.Multivariate analysis includes methods both for describing and exploring such d ata and for making formal inferences about them. The aim of all the techniques is, in general sense, to display or extract the signal in the data in thepresence of noise and to find out what the data show us in the midst of their apparent chaos. An Introd uction to Applied Multivariate Analysis with R explores the correct application of these methods so as to extract as muchinformation as possible from the data at hand, particularly as some type of graphical representation, via the R software. Throughout t he book, the authors give many examples of R code used to apply the multivariate techniques tomultivariate data

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Using the quantum properties of single photons to exchange binary keys between two partners for subsequent encryption of secret data is an absolutely novel technology. Only a few years ago quantum cryptography or better:quantum key distribution was the domain of basic research laboratories at universities. But during the last few years things changed. QKD left the laboratories and was picked up by more practical oriented teams that worked hard todevelop a practically applicable technology out of th e astonishing results of basic research. One major milestone towards a QKD technology was a large research and development project funded by the European Commission that aimed atcombining quantum physics with complementary technologies that are necessary to create a technical solution: electronics, software, and network components were added within the project SECOQC (Development of a Global Network for SecureCommunication based on Quantum Cryptography) that teamed up all expertise on European level to ge t a technology for future encryption. The practical application of QKD in a standard optical fibre network was demonstrated October 2008in Vienna, giving a glimpse of the future of secure communication. Although many steps have still to be done in order t o achieve a real mature technology, the corner stone for future secure communication is already laid. QKD will notbe the Holy Grail of security, it will not be able to solve all problems for evermore. But QKD has the potential to replace one of the weakes t parts of symmetric encryption: the exchange of the key. It can be proven that the keyexchange process cannot be corrupted and that keys that are generated and exchanged quantum cryptographically will be secure for ever (as long as some additional condit ions are kept). This book will show the state of the art of QuantumCryptography and it will sketch how it can be implemented in standard communication infrastructure. The growing vulnerability of

Note:A matroid is an abstract mathematical structure that captures combinatorial properties of matrices. This book offers a unique introduction to matroid theory, emphasizing motivations from matrix theory and applications to systemsanalysis. This book se rves also as a comprehensive presentation of the theory and application of mixed matrices, developed primarily by the present author in the 1990's. A mixed matrix is a convenient mathematical tool for systemsanalysis, compatible with the physical observat ion that fixed constants and system parameters are to be distinguished in the description of engineering systems. This book will be extremely useful to graduate students andresearchers in engineering, mathematics and computer science.

Title:Modern Fluid Dynamics [electronic resource] : Basic Theory and Selected Applications in Macro- and Micro-Fluidics
Author(s): Clement Kleinstreuer
Date:2010
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook covers the essentials of traditional and modern fluid dynamics, i.e., the fundamentals of and basic applications in fluid mechanics and convection heat transfer with brief excursions into fluid-particle dynamics andsolid mechanics. Spec ifically, the book can be used to enhance the knowledge base and skill level of engineering and physics students in macro-scale fluid mechanics (see Chapters I-V), followed by an introductory excursion intomicro-scale fluid dynamics (see Chapters VI-X). C learly, most of Chapters I-X could be taught in one course to honours-level seniors and first-year graduates. A Solutions Manual to the assigned book problems will be provided. This workevolved primarily out of industrial demands and post-graduate expecta tions, because a fine knowledge base in modern fluid dynamics is important, focusing on novel application areas such as microfluidics, mixture flows, fluid-structureinteraction, biofluid dynamics, thermal flows, and fluid-particle transport. Building on c ourses in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and solid mechanics as prerequisites as well as on a junior-level math background, a differentialapproach is most insightful to teach the fundamentals in fluid mechanics, to explain traditional and modern applicat ions on an intermediate level, and to provide sufficient physical insight to understand results, later on generatedwith useful CFD software. Pedagogical elements include a consistent 50/50 physics-mathematics approach when introducing new material, illust rating concepts, showing flow visualizations, and solving problems. The problem solution formatstrictly follows the pattern of system sketch, assumptions, and concept/approachbefore starting the solution phase which consists of symbolic math model develop ment (Appendix A), numerical solution, graphs, and comments onphysical insight. After some illustrative examples, most solved text examples have the same level of difficulty as suggested homework,

Title:The Rubato Composer Music Software [electronic resource] Component-Based Implementation of a Functorial Concept Architecture
Author(s): Grard Milmeister
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Both modern mathematical music theory and computer science are strongly influenced by the theory of categories and functors. One outcome of this research is the data format of denotators, which is based on set-valued presheavesover the category of mo dules and diaffine homomorphisms. The functorial approach of denotators deals with generalized points in the form of arrows and allows the construction of a universal concept architecture. This architecture isideal for handling all aspects of music, espec ially for the analysis and composition of highly abstract musical works. This book presents an introduction to the theory of module categories and the theory of denotators, as well as thedesign of a software system, called Rubato Composer, which is an imp lementation of the category-theoretic concept framework. The application is written in portable Java and relies on plug-in components, so-called rubettes, which may becombined in data flow networks for the generation and manipulation of denotators. The Ru bato Composer system is open to arbitrary extension and is freely available under the GPL license. It allows the developer to build specializedrubettes for tasks that are of interest to composers, who in turn combine them to create music. It equally serve s music theorists, who use them to extract information from and manipulate musical structures. They may even develop newtheories by experimenting with the many parameters that are at their disposal thanks to the increased flexibility of the functorial con cept architecture. Two contributed chapters by Guerino Mazzola and Florian Thalmann illustrate theapplication of the theory as well as the software in the development of compositional tools and the creation of a musical work with the help of the Rubato fr amework

Title:Bayesian Computation with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jim Albert
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:There has been a dramatic growth in the development and application of Bayesian inferential methods. Some of this growth is due to the availability of powerful simulation-based algorithms to summarize posterior distributions.There has been also a gro wing interest in the use of the system R for statistical analyses. R's open source nature, free availability, and large number of contributor packages have made R the software of choice for many statisticiansin education and industry. Bayesian Computation with R introduces Bayesian modeling by the use of computation using the R language. The early chapters present the basic tenets of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one andtwo-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian computational methods such as Lapl ace's method, rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are illustrated in the context of a random effects model. The construction and implementation ofMarkov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These simulation-based algorithms are implemente d for a variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and binary response regression, hierarchical modeling, order-restrictedinference, and robust modeling. Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computinglanguage, is described with several illustrative examples. This book is a suitable companion book for an introductory course on Bayesian methods and is valuable to the statistical practitioner who wishes to learn more about the Rlanguage and Bayesian methodology. The LearnBayes package, written by the author and available from the CRAN website, contains all of the R functions described in the book. The s econd edition contains several new topics such as the useof mixtures of conjugate priors and the use of Zellners g priors to choose between models in linear regression.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Yearly global mean temperature and ocean levels, daily share prices, and the signals transmitted back to Earth by the Voyager space craft are all examples of sequential observations over time known as time series. This book givesyou a step-by-step in troduction to analysing time series using the open source software R. Each time series model is motivated with practical applications, and is defined in mathematical notation. Once the model has been introduced itis used to generate synthetic data, using R code, and these generated data are then used to estimate its parameters. This sequence enhances understanding of both the time series model and the R function used to fit the model to data.Finally, the model is used to analyse observed data taken from a practical application. By using R, the whole procedure can be reproduced by the reader. All the data sets used in the book are available on the websitehttp://staff.elena.aut.ac.nz/Paul-Cowpertwait/ts/. The book is written for undergraduate students of ma thematics, economics, business and finance, geography, engineering and related disciplines, and postgraduate students who may needto analyse time series as part of their taught programme or their research. Paul Cowpertwait is an associate professor in mat hematical sciences (analytics) at Auckland University of Technology with a substantial research record in boththe theory and applications of time series and stochastic models. Andrew Metcalfe is an associate professor in the School of Mathematical Science s at the University of Adelaide, and an author of six statistics text books and numerousresearch papers. Both authors have extensive experience of teaching time series to students at all levels

Note:Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) is a non-intrusive optical measurement technique which allows capturing several thousand velocity vectors within large flow fields instantaneously. Today, the PIV technique has spread widely anddifferentiated into man y distinct applications, from micro flows over combustion to supersonic flows for both industrial needs and research. Over the past decade the measurement technique and the hard- and software have been improvedcontinuously so that PIV has become a reliabl e and accurate method for real life investigations. Nevertheless there is still an ongoing process of improvements and extensions of the PIV technique towards 3D, time resolution, higheraccuracy, measurements under harsh conditions and micro- and macrosca les. This book gives a synopsis of the main results achieved during the EC-funded network PivNet 2 as well as a survey of the state-of-the-art of scientific researchusing PIV techniques in different fields of application

Note:The 2006 Abel symposium is focusing on contemporary research involving interaction between computer science, computational science and mathematics. In recent years, computation has been affecting pure mathematics in fundamentalways. Conversely, ideas and methods of pure mathematics are becoming increasingly important within computational and applied mathematics. At the core of computer science is the study of computability and complexity for discretemathematical structures. Studying the foundations o f computational mathematics raises similar questions concerning continuous mathematical structures. There are several reasons for these developments. The exponential growth ofcomputing power is bringing computational methods into ever new application area s. Equally important is the advance of software and programming languages, which to an increasing degree allows the representation of abstract mathematicalstructures in program code. Symbolic computing is bringing algorithms from mathematical analysis int o the hands of pure and applied mathematicians, and the combination of symbolic and numerical techniques is becoming increasinglyimportant both in computational science and in areas of pure mathematics. We are witnessing a development where a focus on com putability, computing and algorithms is contributing towards a unification of areas of computer science,applied and pure mathematics. The 2006 Abel symposium brought together some of the leading international researchers working in these areas, presented a snapshot of current state of the art, and raised questions about future researchdirections

Note:This book examines various mathematical toolsbased on generalized collocation methodsto solve nonlinear problems related to partial differential and integro-differential equations. Covered are specific problems and modelsrelated to vehicular traffic flow, population dynamics, wave phenomena, heat convection and diffusion, transport phenomena, and pollution. Based on a unified approach combining modeling, mathematical methods, and scientificcomputation, each chapter begins with several examples and pr oblems solved by computational methods full details of the solution techniques used are given. The last section of each chapter provides problems and exercises givingreaders the opportunity to practice using the mathematical tools already presented. Round ing out the work is an appendix consisting of scientific programs in which readers may find practical guidelines for the efficient application ofthe collocation methods used in the book. Although the authors make use of Mathematica, readers may use other packages such as MATLAB or MapleTM depending on their specific needs and software preferences. Generalized CollocationMethods is written for an interdisciplinary audience of graduate students, engineers, scientists, and applied mathematicians with an inte rest in modeling real-world systems by differential or operator equations.

Note:Advances in statistical methodology and computing have played an important role in allowing researchers to more accurately assess the health effects of ambient air pollution. The methods and software developed in this area areapplicable to a wide arr ay of problems in environmental epidemiology. This book provides an overview of the methods used for investigating the health effects of air pollution and gives examples and case studies in R which demonstratethe application of those methods to real data. The book will be useful to statisticians, epidemiologists, and graduate students working in the area of air pollution and health and others analyzing similar data. The authors describe thedifferent existing approaches to statistical modeling and cover ba sic aspects of analyzing and understanding air pollution and health data. The case studies in each chapter demonstrate how to use R to apply and interpret differentstatistical models and to explore the effects of potential confounding factors. A working k nowledge of R and regression modeling is assumed. In-depth knowledge of R programming is not required to understand and run the examples.Researchers in this area will find the book useful as a ``live'' reference. Software for all of the analyses in the bo ok is downloadable from the web and is available under a Free Software license. The reader is free to run theexamples in the book and modify the code to suit their needs. In addition to providing the software for developing the statistical models, the aut hors provide the entire database from the National Morbidity Mortality and Air PollutionStudy (NMMAPS) in a convenient R package. With the database, readers can run the examples and experiment with their own methods and ideas. Roger D. Peng is an Assistan t Professor in the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns HopkinsBloomberg School of Public Health. He is a prominent researcher in the areas of air pollution and health risk assessment and statistica

Note:Algorithms in algebraic geometry go hand in hand with software packages that implement them. Together they have established the modern field of computational algebraic geometry which has come to play a major role in boththeoretical advances and appli cations. Over the past fifteen years, several excellent general purpose packages for computations in algebraic geometry have been developed, such as, CoCoA, Singular and Macaulay 2. While these packagesevolve continuously, incorporating new mathematical a dvances, they both motivate and demand the creation of new mathematics and smarter algorithms. This volume reflects the workshop Software for Algebraic Geometry held in the weekfrom 23 to 27 October 2006, as the second workshop in the thematic year on App lications of Algebraic Geometry at the IMA. The papers in this volume describe the software packages Bertini, PHClab, Gfan, DEMiCs, SYNAPS, TrIm, Gambit,ApaTools, and the application of Risa/Asir to a conjecture on multiple zeta values. They offer the rea der a broad view of current trends in computational algebraic geometry through software development and applications
