Title:Text Analysis with R for Students of Literature [electronic resource]
Author(s): Matthew L Jockers
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Text Analysis with R for Students of Literature is written with students and scholars of literature in mind but will be applicable to other humanists and social scientists wishing to extend their methodological tool kit toinclude quantitative and com putational approaches to the study of text. Computation provides access to information in text that we simply cannot gather using traditional qualitative methods of close reading and human synthesis. TextAnalysis with R for Students of Literature provides a practical introduction to computational text analysis using the open source programming language R. R is extremely popular throughout the sciences and because of its accessibility,R is now used increasingly in other research areas. Readers begin workin g with text right away and each chapter works through a new technique or process such that readers gain a broad exposure to core R procedures and a basicunderstanding of the possibilities of computational text analysis at both the micro and macro scale. E ach chapter builds on the previous as readers move from small scale microanalysis of single texts to large scalemacroanalysis of text corpora, and each chapter concludes with a set of practice exercises that reinforce and expand upon the chapter lessons. The books focus is on making the technical palatable and making the technicaluseful and immediately gratifying

Title:Simulating Social Complexity [electronic resource] : A Handbook

Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Social systems are among the most complex known. This poses particular problems for those who wish to understand them. The complexity often makes analytic approaches infeasible and natural language approaches inadequate forrelating intricate cause an d effect. However, individual- and agent-based computational approaches hold out the possibility of new and deeper understanding of such systems. Simulating Social Complexity examines all aspects of usingagent- or individual-based simulation. This approac h represents systems as individual elements having each their own set of differing states and internal processes. The interactions between elements in the simulation representinteractions in the target systems. What makes these elements social is that the y are usefully interpretable as interacting elements of an observed society. In this, the focus is on human society, but can be extended to includesocial animals or artificial agents where such work enhances our understanding of human society. The phenome na of interest then result (emerge) from the dynamics of the interaction of social actors in an essential way and are usuallynot easily simplifiable by, for example, considering only representative actors. The introduction of accessible agent-based modell ing allows the representation of social complexity in a more natural and direct manner than previoustechniques. In particular, it is no longer necessary to distort a model with the introduction of overly strong assumptions simply in order to obtain analyt ic tractability. This makes agent-based modelling relatively accessible to arange of scientists. The outcomes of such models can be displayed and animated in ways that also make them more interpretable by experts and stakeholders. This handbook is intende d to help in the process of maturation of this newfield. It brings together, through the collaborative effort of many leading researchers, summaries of the best thinking and practice in this a

Title:The Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jonathan S Golan
Date:2012
Edition:3rd ed. 2012
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear algebra is a living, active branch of mathematics which is central to almost all other areas of mathematics, both pure and applied, as well as to computer science, to the physical, biological, and social sciences, and toengineering. It encompa sses an extensive corpus of theoretical results as well as a large and rapidly-growing body of computational techniques. Unfortunately, in the past decade, the content of linear algebra courses required tocomplete an undergraduate degree in mathematics ha s been depleted to the extent that they fail to provide a sufficient theoretical or computational background. Students are not only less able to formulate or even follow mathematicalproofs, they are also less able to understand the mathematics of the nume rical algorithms they need for applications. Certainly, the material presented in the average undergraduate course is insufficient for graduate study. This bookis intended to fill the gap which has developed by providing enough theoretical and computation al material to allow the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student to overcome this deficiency and be able to work independentlyor in advanced courses. The book is intended to be used either as a self-study guide, a textbook for a course in adv anced linear algebra, or as a reference book. It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portionof prelim exams or PhD qualifying exams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assume any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, tosome of the basic ideas and techniques, such as manipulation of small matrices and the solution of small systems of linear equations over the real numbers. More i mportantly, it assumes a seriousness of purpose, considerable motivation,and a modicum of mathematical sophistication on the part of the reader.

Title:Models of Science Dynamics [electronic resource] : Encounters Between Complexity Theory and Information Sciences

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Models of science dynamics aim to capture the structure and evolution of science. They are developed in an emerging research area in which scholars, scientific institutions and scientific communications become themselves basicobjects of research. In order to understand phenomena as diverse as the structure of evolving co-authorship networks or citation diffusion patterns, different models have been developed. They include conceptual models based onhistorical and ethnographic observations, mathematica l descriptions of measurable phenomena, and computational algorithms. Despite its evident importance, the mathematical modeling of science still lacks a unifying framework and acomprehensive research agenda. This book aims to fill this gap, reviewing and describing major threads in the mathematical modeling of science dynamics for a wider academic and professional audience. The model classes presented herecover stochastic and statistical models, game-theoretic approaches, agent-based simulations, populati on-dynamics models, and complex network models. The book starts with a foundational chapter that defines and operationalizesterminology used in the study of science, and a review chapter that discusses the history of mathematical approaches to modeling sc ience from an algorithmic-historiography perspective. It concludes with a survey of future challengesfor science modeling and discusses their relevance for science policy and science policy studies

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:One common characteristic of a complex system is its ability to withstand major disturbances and the capacity to rebuild itself. Understanding how such systems demonstrate resilience by absorbing or recovering from major externalperturbations require s both quantitative foundations and a multidisciplinary view of the topic. This book demonstrates how new methods can be used to identify the actions favouring the recovery from perturbations on a variety ofexamples including the dynamics of bacterial bio films, grassland savannahs, language competition and Internet social networking sites. The reader is taken through an introduction to the idea of resilience and viability and shown themathematical basis of the techniques used to analyse systems. The idea of individual or agent-based modelling of complex systems is introduced and related to analytically tractable approximations of such models. A set of case studiesillustrates the use of the techniques in real applications, and the final section describes h ow one can use new software tools for carrying out the necessary calculations. The book is intended for a general scientific audience ofreaders from the natural and social sciences, although it requires some mathematics to gain a full understanding of the more theoretical chapters. It is an essential point of reference for those interested in the practical applicationof the concepts of resilience and viability

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

Title:Simulation and Inference for Stochastic Differential Equations [electronic resource] : With R Examples
Author(s): Stefano M Iacus
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is unique because of its focus on the practical implementation of the simulation and estimation methods presented. The book will be useful to practitioners and students with only a minimal mathematical backgroundbecause of the many R progra ms, and to more mathematically-educated practitioners. Many of the methods presented in the book have not been used much in practice because the lack of an implementation in a unified framework. This bookfills the gap. With the R code included in this boo k, a lot of useful methods become easy to use for practitioners and students. An R package called sde provides functions with easy interfaces ready to be used on empirical datafrom real life applications. Although it contains a wide range of results, the book has an introductory character and necessarily does not cover the whole spectrum of simulation and inference for general stochastic differentialequations. The book is organized into four chapters. The first one introduces the subject and presents seve ral classes of processes used in many fields of mathematics, computational biology, finance and the social sciences. The secondchapter is devoted to simulation schemes and covers new methods not available in other publications. The third one focuses on pa rametric estimation techniques. In particular, it includes exact likelihood inference, approximated andpseudo-likelihood methods, estimating functions, generalized method of moments, and other techniques. The last chapter contains miscellaneous topics lik e nonparametric estimation, model identification and change point estimation. Thereader who is not an expert in the R language will find a concise introduction to this environment focused on the subject of the book. A documentation page is available at th e end of the book for each R function presented in the book.Stefano M. Iacus is associate professor of Probability and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Milan, Department of Economics, Busi

Title:The Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jonathan S Golan
Date:2007
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Linear algebra is a living, active branch of mathematics which is central to almost all other areas of mathematics, both pure and applied, as well as computer science, the physical and social sciences, and engineering. It entailsan extensive corpus o f theoretical results as well as a large body of computational techniques. The book is intended to be used in one of several possible ways: (1) as a self-study guide (2) as a textbook for a course in advancedlinear algebra, either at the upper-class under graduate level or at the first-year graduate level or (3) as a reference book. It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portion of prelim exams or PhD qualifyingexams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assu me any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, to some basic ideas and techniques, suchas the solution of a small system of linear equations over the real numbers. More important ly, it does assume a seriousness of purpose and a modicum of mathematical sophistication. The book also contains over 1000 exercises, many ofwhich are very challenging

Note:Providing an introduction to the theory of nonlinear Fokker-Planck equations, this book discusses fundamental properties of transient and stationary solutions, emphasizing the stability analysis of stationary solutions by means ofself-consistency equ ations, linear stability analysis, and Lyapunov's direct method. Also treated are Langevin equations and correlation functions. Nonlinear Fokker-Planck Equations addresses various phenomena such as phasetransitions, multistability of systems, synchronizat ion, anomalous diffusion, cut-off solutions, travelling-wave solutions and the emergence of power law solutions. A nonlinear Fokker-Planck perspective to quantum statistics,generalized thermodynamics, and linear nonequilibrium thermodynamics is given. The oretical concepts are illustrated where possible by simple examples. The book also reviews several applications in the fields of condensed matterphysics, the physics of porous media and liquid crystals, accelerator physics, neurophysics, social sciences, population dynamics, and computational physics

Title:Permutation, Parametric and Bootstrap Tests of Hypotheses [electronic resource]
Author(s): Phillip Good
Date:2005
Edition:Third Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text will equip both practitioners and theorists with the necessary background in testing hypothesis and decision theory to enable innumerable practical applications of statistics. Its intuitive and informal style makes itsuitable as a text for both students and researchers. It can serve as the basis a one- or two-semester graduate course as well as a standard handbook of statistical procedures for the practitioners desk. Parametric, permutation, andbootstrap procedures for testing hypotheses ar e developed side by side. The emphasis on distribution-free permutation procedures will enable workers in applied fields to use the most powerful statistic for their applications andsatisfy regulatory agency demands for methods that yield exact significan ce levels, not approximations. Algebra and an understanding of discrete probability will take the reader through all but the appendix, which utilizes probabilitymeasures in its proofs. The revised and expanded text of the 3rd edition includes many more re al-world illustrations from biology, business, clinical trials, economics, geology, law, medicine, social science and engineering along withtwice the number of exercises. Real-world problems of missing and censored data, multiple comparisons, nonresponder s, after-the-fact covariates, and outliers are dealt with at length. New sections are added on sequential analysis andmultivariate analysis plus a chapter on the exact analysis of multi-factor designs based on the recently developed theory of synchronous permutations. The book's main features include: Detailed consideration of one-, two-, and k-sampletests, contingency tables, clinical trials, cluster analysis, multiple comparisons, multivariate analysis, and repeated measures Numerous practical applicati ons in archeology, biology, business, climatology, clinical trials, economics,education, engineering, geology, law, medicine, and the social sciences Valuable techniques for reducing computation time
