Title:Nonparametric Statistics for Applied Research [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jared A Linebach

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.

Note:Channel modeling and analysis of multiband signals are becoming increasingly important in the field of communications, and the study of time and band limiting is a crucial component of these processes. This concise butcomprehensive monograph is the f irst to be devoted specifically to this study, providing a thorough investigation of its theory and applications. Via state-of-the-art numerical methods, it develops the tools for applications not onlyto communications engineering, but also to optical eng ineering, geosciences, planetary sciences, and biomedicine. Duration and Bandwidth Limitingbegins with a discussion of the Bell Labs theory, both discrete and continuous, andgoes on to address various related numerical and analytical techniques. It introd uces a number of problems relevant to finite signal processing, and finally builds a theoretical framework for the sampling of time- and band-limitedsignals. Throughout, the book contains extensive supplemental material, giving greater depth on these subt opics to those who desire it. With an unprecedented breadth of coverage and a careful balance between rigor and readability,Duration and Bandwidth Limiting is a particularly convenient resource both for mathematicians interested in the field and for profe ssional engineers with an interest in theory.

Note:Extreme Photonics & Applications arises from the 2008 NATO Advanced Study Institute in Laser Control & Monitoring in New Materials, Biomedicine, Environment, Security and Defense. Leading experts in the manipulation of lightoffered by recent advances in laser physics and nanoscience were invited to give lectures in their fields of expertise and participate in discussions on current research, applications and new directions. The sum of their contributionsto this book is a primer for the state of scien tific knowledge and the issues within the subject of photonics taken to the extreme frontiers: molding light at the ultra-finest scales, which represents the beginning of the end tolimitations in optical science for the benefit of 21st Century technologic al societies. Laser light is an exquisite tool for physical and chemical research. Physicists have recently developed pulsed lasers with such short durationsthat one laser shot takes the time of one molecular vibration or one electron rotation in an atom, which makes it possible to observe their internal electronic structure, thereby enabling the study of physical processes and newchemical reactions. In parallel, advances in micro- and nano-structured photonic materials allow the precise manipulation of l ight on its natural scale of a wavelength. Photonic crystals, plasmons and related metamaterials - composedof subwavelength nanostructures - permit the manipulation of their dispersive properties and have allowed the experimental confirmation of bizarre n ew effects such as slow light and negative refraction. These advances open a vista on anew era in which it is possible to build lasers and engineer materials to control and use photons as precisely as it is already possible to do with electrons. http://ww w.photonics.uottawa.ca/nato-asi-2008/

Note:The discovery of molecular nanomagnets showing novel quantum effects, as the quantum tunneling of the magnetization, has brought to a renewed interest for the study of molecular magnetism and multifunctional molecular material.These materials have re cently triggered an intense research activity in view of their possible applicabilities as, for example, as nanosized information storage units and as magnetic nanoparticles for bio-medicine. Several fundamentalaspects of the microscopic static and dynami c properties of these molecular materials have been obtained by means of spectroscopies using local probes, as nuclei and muons. In this book an extensive overview on the results obtainedduring the last decade and on recent achievements in the study of mo lecular magnets by means of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Muon Spin Rotation, Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Mossbauer techniques is presented. The aim is to introducethe reader to these techniques and to give a general background on their application to mo lecular spin systems

Note:To adequately describe complex spatio-temporal processes that occur in multi-cellular organisms, a class of models is required that simultaneously takes into account differences between individual cells as well as their ability tocommunicate and inte ract with one another and their environment. Single-cell-based models form a framework that allows for the explicit incorporation of different properties of individual cells, but at the same time enables all cellsto act together as one collective body. Th is leads ultimately to more biologically realistic models of heterogeneous tissues and multi-cellular organisms and allows for a better understanding of the principles underlying the complexbiological processes occurring during the formation, growth and m aintenance of multi-cellular bodies. The aim of this book is to assemble a collection of different mathematical and computational models and techniques that focus onindividual cells, cell processes and cell behaviour, that are also suitable to address pro blems on the multi-cellular or tissue scale. We would like to focus the level of the book equally to students starting their research in thefield of mathematical biology and to scientists already modelling multi-cellular processes. Therefore, our intentio n is to include in this book a detailed description of each model and an extensive review of suitable biological andmedical applications

Note:The goal of this book is to disseminate information on the worldwide status and trends in biosensing R&D to government decisionmakers and the research community. The contributors critically analyze and compare biosensing researchin the United States with that being pursued in Japan, Europe and other major industrialized countries. Biosensing includes systems that incorporate a variety of means, including electrical, electronic, and photonic devices biologicalmaterials (e.g., tissue, enzymes, nucleic acids, etc.) and chemical analysis to produce detectable signals for the monitoring or identification of biological phenomena. In a broader sense, the study of biosensing includes any approachto detection of biological elements and the associated software or computer identification technologies (e.g., imaging) that identify biological characteristics. Biosensing is finding a growing number of applications in a wide varietyof areas, including biomedicine, food production and processing, and detection of ba cteria, viruses, and biological toxins for biowarfare defense. Subtopics likely to be covered in this study include the following: Nucleic acid sensorsand DNA chips and arrays, organism- and cell-based biosensors, bioelectronics and biometrics, biointerfa ces and biomaterials biocompatibility and biofouling, integrated, multi-modality sensors and sensor networks, system issues,including signal transduction, data interpretation, and validation, novel sensing algorithms, e.g., non-enzyme-based sensors for gl ucose, mechanical sensors for prosthetics, related issues in bio-MEMS and NEMS (microelectromechanicaland nanoelectromechanical systems), possibly including actuators, applications in biomedicine, the environment, food industry, security and defense.

Title:Life As a Matter of Fat [electronic resource] : The Emerging Science of Lipidomics

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:LIFE - as a Matter of Fat Lipidomics is the science of the fats called lipids. Lipids are as important for life as proteins, sugars, and genes. The present book gives a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and theparticular role play ed by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes. The book is aimed at undergraduate students and young research workers within physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nutrition, as wellas pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The emphasis is on the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces. By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recentstudies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is an d how it can be quantitatively described. Furthermore, it is shown how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure andorganization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells. Applications of lipids in nano-technologyand biomedicine are also described. The Emerging Science of Lipidomics We have just witnessed a scientific revolution at the end of the 20th century that took us through the genomics era with a focus on sequencing genes and mappinggene products. We are now in the middle of the proteomics era where the multitude of proteins that are encoded in the genes are identified an d their functions are unveiled. In front of us we have a new era recognizing the role oflipids. The science of lipidomics is emerging. Lipidomics involves a quantitative experimental and theoretical study of, e.g. lipid and membrane self-assembly, lipid-p rotein interactions, lipid-gene interactions, and the biophysicalproperties of lipid structure, function, and dynamics
