Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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

Note:Star Maps captures the beauty and awe of the heavens through celestial prints and star atlases. It traces the history of celestial cartography and relates this history to the changing ideas of humanity's place in the universe. Thetext of this Second Edition is enriched with 263 photographs, 91 in color, showing images from actual antiquarian celestial books and atlases, each one with an explanation of its astronomical and cartographic features. This new editionof Star Maps: History, Artistry, and Car tography includes: - over 50 new pages of text and 44 new images (16 in color) - completely new sections on celestial frontispieces, deep-sky objects, playing card maps, additional cartographers,and modern computerized star maps - updated figures and text about celestial globes, volvelles, telescopes, and planets and asteroids - revised and updated text and illustrations throughout. The book focuses on the development ofcelestial cartography from ancient to modern times and describes the relationships bet ween different star maps and atlases. It demonstrates contemporary cosmological ideas, constellation representations, and cartographic advances.Uniquely, it contains material on early American influences and non-European constellation representations. Thi s book is a must-have reference for anyone interested in the workings of the heavens

Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years. Alexander Krmer i s an internist and epidemiologist who co-founded the firstSchool of Public Health in the German-speaking region of Europe at the University of Bielefeld.

Note:This book traces the history of celestial cartography and relates this history to the changing ideas of mans place in the universe and to advances in map-making. Photographs from actual antiquarian celestial atlases andprints, many previously unpubli shed, enrich the text, and a legend accompanies each illustration to explain its astronomical and cartographic features. Also included in the book are discussions of non-European celestial maps andchapters on early American influences and celestial map-co llecting. With the construction of the International Space Station, and new plans for manned missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond, there is renewed interest in the heavens. Anever-increasing number of people are fascinated with the science of space and a re becoming amateur astronomers. Antiquarian map societies are prospering, and celestial maps are now viewed as a specialty of map collecting. The beautyand awe generated by the celestial void captures our imagination and delights our aesthetic sense

Title:Multiscale Modeling [electronic resource] : A Bayesian Perspective
Author(s): Marco A. R Ferreira
Herbert K. H Lee
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A wide variety of processes occur on multiple scales, either naturally or as a consequence of measurement. This book contains methodology for the analysis of data that arise from such multiscale processes. The book brings togethera number of recent d evelopments and makes them accessible to a wider audience. Taking a Bayesian approach allows for full accounting of uncertainty, and also addresses the delicate issue of uncertainty at multiple scales. The Bayesianapproach also facilitates the use of know ledge from prior experience or data, and these methods can handle different amounts of prior knowledge at different scales, as often occurs in practice. The book is aimed at statisticians,applied mathematicians, and engineers working on problems dealing w ith multiscale processes in time and/or space, such as in engineering, finance, and environmetrics. The book will also be of interest to those working on multiscalecomputation research. The main prerequisites are knowledge of Bayesian statistics and basic Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. A number of real-world examples are thoroughly analyzed in order to demonstrate the methods and to assist thereaders in applying these methods to their own work. To further assist readers, the authors are making source c ode (for R) available for many of the basic methods discussed herein. Marco A. R. Ferreira is an Assistant Professor ofStatistics at the University of Missouri, Columbia. Herbert K. H. Lee is an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and authored the book Bayesian Nonparametrics via NeuralNetworks
