Note:This is a unique book addressing the integration of risk methodology from various fields. It stimulates intellectual debate and communication across disciplines, promotes better risk management practices and contributes to thedevelopment of risk mana gement methodologies. Book chapters explain fundamental risk models and measurement, and address risk and security issues from diverse areas such as finance and insurance, health sciences, life sciences,engineering and information science.

Note:Exceptional managers know that they can create competitive advantages by basing decisions on performance response under alternative scenarios. To create these advantages, managers need to understand how to use statistics toprovide information on perf ormance response under alternative scenarios. This updated edition ofthe populartext helps business students develop competitive advantages for use in their future careers as decision makers. Studentslearn to build models using logic and experience, produ ce statistics using Excel 2013 with shortcuts, and translate results into implications for decision makers. The author emphasizes communicating results effectively in plain Englishand with compelling graphics in the form of memos and PowerPoints. Statisti cs, from basics to sophisticated models, are illustrated with examples using real data such as students will encounter in their roles as managers. A number ofexamples focus on business in emerging global markets with particular emphasis on emerging market s in Latin America, China and India. Results are linked to implications for decision making with sensitivity analyses to illustrate howalternate scenarios can be compared. Chapters include screenshots to make it easy to conduct analyses in Excel 2013 with time-saving shortcuts expected in the business world. PivotTables and PivotCharts, used frequently in businesses,are introduced from the start. The Third Edition features Monte Carlo simulation in three chapters, as a tool to illustrate the range of poss ible outcomes from decision makers assumptions and underlying uncertainties. Model buildingwith regression is presented as a process, adding levels of sophistication, with chapters on multicollinearity and remedies, forecasting and model validation, autoc orrelation and remedies, indicator variables to represent segmentdifferences, and seasonality, structural shifts or shocks in time series models.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Construction of various models of objects under uncertainty is one of the most important problems in modern decision making theory. Regression models are some of the most prevalent tools for modeling under uncertainty and arewidely applied in differe nt branches of science such as in industrial research, agriculture, medicine, and business and economics. Regression Analysis Under A Priori Parameter Restrictions will be of interest to a broad spectrum ofreaders in applied mathematics, mathematical stat istics, identification theory, systems analysis, econometrics, finance, optimization, and other scientific disciplines. Requiring a background in algebra, probability theory,mathematical statistics, and mathematical programming, this work may also be a us eful supplement for advanced graduate courses in estimation theory, regression analysis, mathematical statistics, econometrics, mathematical programmingand optimal control, and stochastic optimization. The material contained in this monographsuccessfully combines interesting theoretical results with methods and algorithms for solving practical problems. It focuses on theconstruction of regression models with linear and non-linear constraint inequalities and is the first book in which the theoretical resul ts lying in the background of construction and studying regression models with inequalityconstraints on parameters are presented systematically and solidly. Problems are described and studied in a clear, precise, and rigorous method and include: calculati on of estimates for regression parameters, determination of theirasymptotic properties and accuracy of estimation, point and interval prediction by the regression, parameters of which are estimated under inequality constraints. The authors approach lends itself to numerous applications in variouspractical problems, several of which are discussed in detail

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity, Cognition and the City aims at a deeper understanding of urbanism, while invoking, on an equal footing, the contributions both the hard and soft sciences have made, and are still making, when grappling with the manyissues and facets of re gional planning and dynamics. In this work, the author goes beyond merely seeing the city as a self-organized, emerging pattern of some collective interaction between many stylized urban agents he makesthe crucial step of attributing cognition to his age nts and thus raises, for the first time, the question on how to deal with a complex system composed of many interacting complex agents in clearly defined settings. Accordingly, theauthor eventually addresses issues of practical relevance for urban planner s and decision makers. The book unfolds its message in a largely nontechnical manner, so as to provide a broad interdisciplinary readership with insights,ideas, and other stimuli to encourage further research with the twofold aim of further pushing back the boundaries of complexity science and emphasizing the all-important interrelation of hard and soft sciences in recognizing thecognitive sciences as another necessary ingredient for meaningful urban studies

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The practice of business is changing. More and more companies are amassing larger and larger amounts of data, and storing them in bigger and bigger data bases. Consequently, successful applications of data-driven decision makingare plentiful and incr easing on a daily basis. This book will motivate the need for data and data-driven solutions, using real data from real business scenarios. It will allow managers to better interact with personnel specializing inanalytics by exposing managers and decision makers to the key ideas and concepts of data-driven decision making. Business Analytics for Managers conveys ideas and concepts from both statistics and data mining with the goal ofextracting knowledge from real business data and actionable insight for managers. Throughout, emphasis placed on conveying data-driven thinking. While the ideas discussed in this book can be implemented using many different softwaresolutions from many different vendors, it also provides a quick-start to one of the most powerf ul software solutions available. The main goals of this book are as follows: To excite managers and decision makersabout the potential that resides in data and the value that data analytics can add to business processes. To provide managers with a basi c understanding of the main concepts of data analytics and a common language toconvey data-driven decision problems so they can better communicate with personnel specializing in data mining or statistics
