Note:Applied Spatial Data Analysis with R, Second Edition, is divided into two basic parts, the first presenting R packages, functions, classes and methods for handling spatial data. This part is of interest to users who need to accessand visualise spatia l data. Data import and export for many file formats for spatial data are covered in detail, as is the interface between R and the open source GRASS GIS and the handling of spatio-temporal data. The second partshowcases more specialised kinds of spatial d ata analysis, including spatial point pattern analysis, interpolation and geostatistics, areal data analysis and disease mapping. The coverage of methods of spatial data analysis ranges fromstandard techniques to new developments, and the examples used ar e largely taken from the spatial statistics literature. All the examples can be run using R contributed packages available from the CRAN website, with code and additionaldata sets from the book's own website. Compared to the first edition, the second edit ion covers the more systematic approach towards handling spatial data in R, as well as a number of important and widely used CRAN packages that haveappeared since the first edition. This book will be of interest to researchers who intend to use R to hand le, visualise, and analyse spatial data. It will also be of interest to spatial data analysts who do not use R, but who areinterested in practical aspects of implementing software for spatial data analysis. It is a suitable companion book for introductory spatial statistics courses and for applied methods courses in a wide range of subjects using spatialdata, including human and physical geography, geographical information science and geoinformatics, the environmental sciences, ecology, public health and disease control, economics, public administration and political science. Thebook has a website where complete code examples, data sets, and other support material may be found: http://www.asdar-boo

Title:Stochastic Differential Games. Theory and Applications [electronic resource]

Note:Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction

Note:Numerical Ecology with R provides a long-awaited bridge between a textbook in Numerical Ecology and the implementation of this discipline in the R language. After short theoretical overviews, the authors accompany the usersthrough the exploration of the methods by means of applied and extensively commented examples. Users are invited to use this book as a teaching companion at the computer. The travel starts with exploratory approaches, proceeds with theconstruction of associationmatrices, then addre sses three families of methods: clustering, unconstrained and canonical ordination,and spatial analysis. All the necessary data files, the scripts used in the chapters, as well as theextra R functions and packages written by the authors, can be downloaded from a web page accessible through the Springer web site(http://adn.biol.umontreal.ca/~numericalecology/numecolR/). This book is aimed at professionalresearchers, practitioners, graduate students and teachers in ecology, environmental science and enginee ring, and in related fields such as oceanography, molecular ecology, agriculture and soil science, who already have a background ingeneral and multivariate statistics and wish to apply this knowledge to their data using the R language, as well as people w illing to accompany their disciplinary learning with practical applications. People from other fields (e.g.geology, geography, paleoecology, phylogenetics, anthropology, the social and education sciences, etc.) may also benefit from the materials presente d in this book. The three authors teach numerical ecology, both theoretical andpractical, to a wide array of audiences, in regular courses in their Universities and in short courses given around the world.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Based on their extensive experience with teaching R and statistics to applied scientists, the authors provide a beginner's guide to R. To avoid the difficulty of teaching R and statistics at the same time, statistical methods arekept to a minimum. Th e text covers how to download and install R, import and manage data, elementary plotting, an introduction to functions, advanced plotting, and common beginner mistakes. This book contains everything you need toknow to get started with R. Its biggest advan tage is that it aims only to teach R...It organizes R commands very efficiently, with much teaching guidance included. I would describe this book as being handy--it's the kind of book thatyou want to keep in your jacket pocket or backpack all the time, re ady for use, like a Swiss Army knife. (Loveday Conquest, University of Washington) Whilst several books focus on learning statistics in R..., the authors of thisbook fill a gap in the market by focusing on learning R whilst almost completely avoiding any statistical jargon...The fact that the authors have very extensive experience of teaching R to absolute beginners shines throughout. (MarkMainwaring, Lancaster University) Exactly what is needed...This is great, nice work. I love the ecological/biological examples they will be an enormous help. (Andrew J. Tyne, University of Nebraska-Lincoln) Alain F. Zuur is seniorstatistician and director of Highland Statistics Ltd., a statistical consultancy company based in the UK.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The third edition of this classic text maintains its focus on applications of demographic models, while extending its scope to matrix models for stage-classified populations. The authors first introduce the life table to describeage-specific mortalit y, and then use it to develop theory for stable populations and the rate of population increase. This theory is then revisited in the context of matrix models, for stage-classified as well as age-classifiedpopulations. Reproductive value and the stable eq uivalent population are introduced in both contexts, and Markov chain methods are presented to describe the movement of individuals through the life cycle. Applications of mathematicaldemography to population projection and forecasting, kinship, microdemo graphy, heterogeneity, and multi-state models are considered. The new edition maintains and extends the books focus on the consequences of changes in the vitalrates. Methods are presented for calculating the sensitivity and elasticity of population growth rate, life expectancy, stable stage distribution, and reproductive value, and for applying those results in comparative studies.Stage-classified models are important in both human demography and population ecology, and this edition features examples from both human and non-human populations. In short, this third edition enlarges considerably the scope and powerof demography. It will be an essential resource for students and researchers in demography and in animal and plant population ecology. Nathan Keyf itz is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Harvard University. After holding positions atCanadas Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the University of Chicago, and the University of California at Berkeley, he became Andelot Professor of Sociology and Demography at Harvard in 1972. After retiring from Harvard, he becameDirector of the Population Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna from 1983 to 1993. Keyfi
