Title:Measurement and Probability [electronic resource] : A Probabilistic Theory of Measurement with Applications
Author(s): Giovanni Battista Rossi
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Measurement plays a fundamental role both in physical and behavioral sciences, as well as in engineering and technology: it is the link between abstract models and empirical reality and is a privileged method of gatheringinformation from the real wor ld. Is it possible to develop a single theory of measurement for the various domains of science and technology in which measurement is involved? This book takes the challenge by addressing the followingmain issues: What is the meaning of measurement? How do we measure? What can be measured? A theoretical framework that could truly be shared by scientists in different fields, ranging from physics and engineering to psychology isdeveloped. The future in fact will require greater collaboration between scienc e and technology and between different sciences. Measurement, which played a key role in the birth of modern science, can act as an essentialinterdisciplinary tool and language for this new scenario. A sound theoretical basis for addressing key problems i n measurement is provided. These include perceptual measurement, the evaluation of uncertainty, the evaluation ofinter-comparisons, the analysis of risks in decision-making and the characterization of dynamical measurement. Currently, increasing attention is paid to these issues due to their scientific, technical, economic and social impact. Thebook proposes a unified probabilistic approach to them which may allow more rational and effective solutions to be reached. Great care was taken to make the text a s accessible as possible in several ways. Firstly, by giving preferenceto as interdisciplinary a terminology as possible secondly, by carefully defining and discussing all key terms. This ensures that a wide readership, including people from different mat hematical backgrounds and different understandingsof measurement can all benefit from this work. Concerning mathematics, all the main results are preceded by intuitive discussions and illustrated by si

Title:Nonparametric Statistics for Applied Research [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jared A Linebach
Brian P Tesch
Lea M Kovacsiss
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Non-parametric methods are widely used for studying populations that take on a ranked order (such as movie reviews receiving one to four stars). The use of non-parametric methods may be necessary when data have a ranking but noclear numerical interpr etation, such as when assessing preferences. In terms of levels of measurement, non-parametric methods result in ordinal data. As non-parametric methods make fewer assumptions, their applicability is muchwider than the corresponding parametric methods. In particular, they may be applied in situations where less is known about the application in question. Also, due to the reliance on fewer assumptions, non-parametric methods are morerobust. Non-parametric methods have many popular applications, and are wid ely used in research in the fieldsof thebehavioral sciences and biomedicine. This isa textbook on non-parametric statistics for applied research.Theauthors propose tousea realistic yet mostly fictional situation and series of dialoguesto illustrate in det ail the statistical processes required to complete data analysis. This book draws on a readers existing elementaryknowledge of statistical analyses to broaden his/her research capabilities. The material within the book is covered in such a way that someon e with a very limited knowledge of statistics would be able to read and understand theconcepts detailed in the text. Thereal world scenario to be presented involves amultidisciplinary team of behavioral, medical, crime analysis, and policy analysis profes sionals work together to answer specific empiricalquestions regarding real-world applied problems. The reader is introduced to the team and the data set, and through the course of the text follows the team as they progress through the decision making proc ess of narrowing the dataand the research questions to answer the applied problem.

Title:Missing Data [electronic resource] : Analysis and Design
Author(s): John W Graham
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:Missing data have long plagued those conducting applied research in the social, behavioral, and health sciences. Good missing data analysis solutions are available, but practical information about implementation of thesesolutions has been lacking. Th e objective of Missing Data: Analysis and Design is to enable investigators who are non-statisticians to implement modern missing data procedures properly in their research, and reap the benefits interms of improved accuracy and statistical power. Missing Data: Analysis and Design contains essential information for both beginners and advanced readers. For researchers with limited missing data analysis experience, this bookoffers an easy-to-read introduction to the theoretical underpinnings of analysis of missing data provides clear, step-by-step instructions for performing state-of-the-art multiple imputation analyses and offers practical advice,based on over 20 years' experience, for avoiding and troubleshooting problems. For more advanced readers, uniqu e discussions of attrition, non-Monte-Carlo techniques for simulations involving missing data, evaluation of the benefitsof auxiliary variables, and highly cost-effective planned missing data designs are provided. The author lays out missing data theory i n a plain English style that is accessible and precise. Most analyses described in the book areconducted using the well-known statistical software packages SAS and SPSS, supplemented by Norm 2.03 and associated Java-based automation utilities. A related w eb site contains free downloads of the supplementary software, as well assample empirical data sets and a variety of practical exercises described in the book to enhance and reinforce the readers learning experience. Missing Data: Analysis and Design and its web site work together to enable beginnersto gain confidence in their ability to conduct missing data analysis, and more advanced readers to expand their skill set.

Title:Quantitative Sociodynamics [electronic resource] : Stochastic Methods and Models of Social Interaction Processes

Note:This new edition of Quantitative Sociodynamics presents a general strategy for interdisciplinary model building and its application to a quantitative description of behavioral changes based on social interaction processes.Originally, the crucial meth ods for the modeling of complex systems (stochastic methods and nonlinear dynamics) were developed in physics and mathematics, but they have very often proven their explanatory power in chemistry, biology,economics and the social sciences as well. Quantit ative Sociodynamics provides a unified and comprehensive overview of the different stochastic methods, their interrelations and properties. In addition, it introduces important conceptsfrom nonlinear dynamics (e.g. synergetics, chaos theory). The applicab ility of these fascinating concepts to social phenomena is carefully discussed. By incorporating decision-theoretical approaches, a fundamental dynamic model isobtained, which opens new perspectives in the social sciences. It includes many established mod els as special cases, e.g. the logistic equation, the gravity model, some diffusion models, evolutionary game theoryand social fieldtheory. Moreover, it implies numerous new results and is relevant for various application areas, such as opinion formation, migration, the self-organizationof behavioral conventions, and the behavior of customers andvoters.Theoretical results are complemented and illustrated by numerous computer simulations. Quantitative Sociodynamics is relevant both for social scientists an d natural scientists who are interested in the application ofstochastic and synergetics concepts to interdisciplinary topics.

Note:Emergence and complexity refer to the appearance of higher-level properties and behaviours of a system that obviously comes from the collective dynamics of that system's components. These properties are not directly deductablefrom the lower-level mot ion of that system. Emergent properties are properties of the whole'' that are not possessed by any of the individual parts making up that whole. Such phenomena exist in various domains and can be described,using complexity concepts and thematic knowledge s. This book highlights complexity modelling through dynamical or behavioral systems. The pluridisciplinary purposes, developped along the chapters, are enable to design links between awide-range of fundamental and applicative Sciences. Developing such li nks - instead of focusing on specific and narrow researches - is characteristic of the Science of Complexity that we try to promote by this contribution

Note:Functional Equations and Inequalities with Applications presents a comprehensive, nearly encyclopedic, study of the classical topic of functional equations. Nowadays, the field of functional equations is an ever-growing branch ofmathematics with far- reaching applications it is increasingly used to investigate problems in mathematical analysis, combinatorics, biology, information theory, statistics, physics, the behavioral sciences, and engineering. Thisself-contained monograph explores all aspects of functional equations and their applications to related topics, such as differential equations, integral equations, the Laplace transformation, the calculus of finite differences, andmany other basic tools in analysis. Each chapter examines a particular f amily of equations and gives an in-depth study of its applications as well as examples and exercises to support the material. The book is intended as a referencetool for any student, professional (researcher), or mathematician studying in a field where fu nctional equations can be applied. It can also be used as a primary text in a classroom setting or for self-study. Finally, it could be aninspiring entre into an active area of mathematical exploration for engineers and other scientists who would benefit from this careful, rigorous exposition

Title:Marginal Models [electronic resource] : For Dependent, Clustered, and Longitudinal Categorical Data

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Marginal Models for Dependent, Clustered, and Longitudinal Categorical Data provides a comprehensive overview of the basic principles of marginal modeling and offers a wide range of possible applications. Marginal models are oftenthe best choice for answering important research questions when dependent observations are involved, as the many real world examples in this book show. In the social, behavioral, educational, economic, and biomedical sciences, data areoften collected in ways that introduce d ependencies in the observations to be compared. For example, the same respondents are interviewed at several occasions, several members of networks or groups are interviewed within the samesurvey, or, within families, both children and parents are investi gated. Statistical methods that take the dependencies in the data into account must then be used, e.g., when observations at time one and time two are compared inlongitudinal studies. At present, researchers almost automatically turn to multi-level models or to GEE estimation to deal with these dependencies. Despite the enormous potential and applicability of these recent developments, theyrequire restrictive assumptions on the nature of the dependencies in the data. The marginal models of this book provi de another way of dealing with these dependencies, without the need for such assumptions, and can be used to answerresearch questions directly at the intended marginal level. The maximum likelihood method, with its attractive statistical properties, is us ed for fitting the models. This book has mainly been written with applied researchers in mind.It includes many real world examples, explains the types of research questions for which marginal modeling is useful, and provides a detailed description of how to apply marginal models for a great diversity of research questions. Allthese examples are presented on the book's website (www.cmm.st), along with user friendly programs. Wicher Bergsma is Senior Lect

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Multilevel analysis is the statistical analysis of hierarchically and non-hierarchically nested data. The simplest example is clustered data, such as a sample of students clustered within schools. Multilevel data are especiallyprevalent in the social and behavioral sciences and in the bio-medical sciences. The models used for this type of data are linear and nonlinear regression models that account for observed and unobserved heterogeneity at the variouslevels in the data. This book presents the stat e of the art in multilevel analysis, with an emphasis on more advanced topics. These topics are discussed conceptually, analyzed mathematically, and illustrated by empirical examples. Theauthors of the chapters are the leading experts in the field. Given the omnipresence of multilevel data in the social, behavioral, and biomedical sciences, this book is useful for empirical researchers in these fields. Prior knowledgeof multilevel analysis is not required, but a basic knowledge of regression analysis, (as ymptotic) statistics, and matrix algebra is assumed. Jan de Leeuw is Distinguished Professor of Statistics and Chair of the Department ofStatistics, University of California at Los Angeles. He is former president of the Psychometric Society, former editor of the Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, founding editor of the Journal of Statistical Software, andeditor of the Journal of Multivariate Analysis. He is coauthor (with Ita Kreft) of Introducing Multilevel Modeling and a member of the Alb ert Gifi team who wrote Nonlinear Multivariate Analysis. Erik Meijer is Economist at the RANDCorporation and Assistant Professor of Econometrics at the University of Groningen. He is coauthor (with Tom Wansbeek) of the highly acclaimed book Measurement Er ror and Latent Variables in Econometrics
