Title:Computational Experiment Approach to Advanced Secondary Mathematics Curriculum [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sergei Abramovich
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book promotes the experimental mathematics approach in the context of secondary mathematics curriculum by exploring mathematical models depending on parameters that were typically considered advanced in the pre-digitaleducation era. This approac h, by drawing on the power of computers to perform numerical computations and graphical constructions, stimulates formal learning of mathematics through making sense of a computational experiment. It allowsone (in the spirit of Freudenthal) to bridge seri ous mathematical content and contemporary teaching practice. In other words, the notion of teaching experiment can be extended to include a true mathematical experiment. When usedappropriately, the approach creates conditions for collateral learning (in t he spirit of Dewey) to occur including the development of skills important for engineering applications of mathematics. In the context of a mathematics teachereducation program, this book addresses a call for the preparation of teachers capable of utilizi ng modern technology tools for the modeling-based teaching of mathematics with a focus on methods conducive to the improvement of the wholeSTEM education at the secondary level. By the same token, using the books pedagogy and its mathematical content in a pre-college classroom can assist teachers in introducing students to the ideas that develop the foundation ofengineering profession

Title:A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hans Petter Langtangen
Date:2014
Edition:4th ed. 2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book serves as a first introduction to computer programming of scientific applications, using the high-level Python language. The exposition is example and problem-oriented, where the applications are taken from mathematics,numerical calculus, st atistics, physics, biology and finance. The book teaches Matlab-style and procedural programming as well as object-oriented programming. High school mathematics is a required background and it is advantageousto study classical and numerical one-variable c alculus in parallel with reading this book. Besides learning how to program computers, the reader will also learn how to solve mathematical problems, arising in various branches of scienceand engineering, with the aid of numerical methods and programming. By blending programming, mathematics and scientific applications, the book lays a solid foundation for practicing computational science. From the reviews: Langtangen does an excellent job of introducing programming as a set of skills in problem solving. He guides the reader into thinking properly about producing program logic and data structures for modeling real-world problems using objectsand functions and embracing the object-oriented paradigm. Summing Up: Highly recommended. F. H. Wild III, Choice, Vol. 47 (8), April 2010 Those of us who have learned scientific programming in Python on the streets could be alittle jealous of students who have the opportunity to take a course out of Langtangens Primer. John D. Cook, The Mathematical Association of Am erica, September 2011 This book goes through Python in particular, and programmingin general, via tasks that scientists will likely perform. It contains valuable informationfor students new to scientific computing and would be the perfect bridge between a n introduction to programming and an advanced course onnumerical methods or computational science.

Title:Basic Concepts in Computational Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Benjamin A. Stickler
Ewald Schachinger
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:With the development of ever more powerful computers a new branch of physics and engineering evolved over the last few decades: Computer Simulation or Computational Physics. It serves two main purposes: - Solution of complexmathematical problems such as, differential equations, minimization/optimization, or high-dimensional sums/integrals. - Direct simulation of physical processes, as for instance, molecular dynamics or Monte-Carlo simulation ofphysical/chemical/technical processes. Consequently, the book is divided into two main parts: Deterministic methods and stochastic methods. Based on concrete problems, the first part discusses numerical differentiation and integration,and the treatment of ordinary differential equations. This is augmented by n otes on the numerics of partial differential equations. The second part discusses the generation of random numbers, summarizes the basics of stochastics whichis then followed by the introduction of various Monte-Carlo (MC) methods. Specific emphasis is on MARKOV chain MC algorithms. All this is again augmented by numerous applications from physics. The final two chapters on Data Analysisand Stochastic Optimization share the two main topics as a common denominator. The book offers a number of appendices to provide the reader with more detailed information on various topics discussed in the main part. Nevertheless, thereader should be familiar with the most important concepts of statistics and probability theory albeit two appendices have been dedicated to provide a rudimentary discussion

Title:Stochastic Simulation and Monte Carlo Methods [electronic resource] : Mathematical Foundations of Stochastic Simulation

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In various scientific and industrial fields, stochastic simulations are taking on a new importance. This is due to the increasing power of computers and practitioners aim to simulate more and more complex systems, and thus userandom parameters as wel l as random noises to model the parametric uncertainties and the lack of knowledge on the physics of these systems. The error analysis of these computations is a highly complex mathematical undertaking.Approaching these issues, the authors present stochas tic numerical methods and prove accurate convergence rate estimates in terms of their numerical parameters (number of simulations, time discretization steps). As a result, the bookis a self-contained and rigorous study of the numerical methods within a th eoretical framework. After briefly reviewing the basics, the authors first introduce fundamental notions in stochastic calculus and continuous-time martingaletheory, then develop the analysis of pure-jump Markov processes, Poisson processes, and stochasti c differential equations. In particular, they review the essential properties of It integrals and prove fundamental results on theprobabilistic analysis of parabolic partial differential equations. These results in turn provide the basis for developing st ochastic numerical methods, both from an algorithmic and theoretical point of view. The book combinesadvanced mathematical tools, theoretical analysis of stochastic numerical methods, and practical issues at a high level, so as to provide optimal results on the accuracy of Monte Carlo simulations of stochastic processes. It isintended for master and Ph.D. students in the field of stochastic processes and their numerical applications, as well as for physicists, biologists, economists and other professional s working with stochastic simulations, who willbenefit from the ability to reliably estimate and control the accuracy of their simulations.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents the various types of resonance effects on excitons, biexcitons and the local electronic centers (LEC) in solids, such as paramagnetic and paraelectric resonances on excitons, exciton acoustic resonance at intra-and interband transi tions, radio-optical double resonance on excitons, hole-nuclear double resonance on localized biexcitons, ENDOR and acoustic ENDOR on LEC. The criteria for the generation of coherent photons, phonons and magnons byexcitons are explained. The interactions of excitons and biexcitons with paramagnetic centers and nuclear spins, the indirect interaction between the PC through a field of excitons as well as the quasienergy spectrum of excitons andspin systems are discussed. It is proved that the interactionof paramagnetic centers with excitons increases the spin relaxation rate of paramagneticcenters in comparison with the case of their interaction with free carriers. Thegiant magneto-opticaleffects in semi-magnetic semiconductors are theoretically interpreted . In recent years, a new perspective has been added to these systems and their interactions: they can be used for storing and processinginformation in the form of quantum bits (qubits), the building blocks of quantum computers. The basics of this emerging technology are explained and examples of demonstration-type quantum computers based on localized spins in solidsare discussed

Title:Statistical Approach to Quantum Field Theory [electronic resource] : An Introduction

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:Over the past few decades the powerful methods of statistical physics and Euclidean quantum field theory have moved closer together, with common tools based on the use of path integrals. The interpretation of Euclidean fieldtheories as particular sys tems of statistical physics has opened up new avenues for understanding strongly coupled quantum systems or quantum field theories at zero or finite temperatures. Accordingly, the first chapters of this bookcontain a self-contained introduction to path in tegrals in Euclidean quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics. The resulting high-dimensional integrals can be estimated with the help of Monte Carlo simulations based on Markovprocesses. The most commonly used algorithms are presented in detail so as to prepare the reader for the use of high-performance computers as an experimental tool for this burgeoning field of theoretical physics. Several chaptersare then devoted to an introduction to simple lattice field theories and a variety of spin systems wi th discrete and continuous spins, where the ubiquitous Ising model serves as an ideal guide for introducing the fascinating area ofphase transitions. As an alternative to the lattice formulation of quantum field theories, variants of the flexible renormal ization group methods are discussed in detail. Since, according to our present-day knowledge, all fundamentalinteractions in nature are described by gauge theories, the remaining chapters of the book deal with gauge theories without and with matter. This text is based on course-tested notes for graduate students and, as such, its style isessentially pedagogical, requiring only some basics of mathematics, statistical physics, and quantum field theory. Yet it also contains some more sophisticated concepts w hich may be useful to researchers in the field. Each chapter endswith a number of problems guiding the reader to a deeper understanding of some of the material presented in the main text a

Date:2013
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:This book addresses an interesting area of quantum computation called quantum walks, which play an important role in building quantum algorithms, in particular search algorithms. Quantum walks are the quantum analogue of classicalrandom walks. It is known that quantum computers have great power for searching unsorted databases. This power extends to many kinds of searches, particularly to the problem of finding a specific location in a spatial layout, which canbe modeled by a graph. The goal is to fi nd a specific node knowing that the particle uses the edges to jump from one node to the next. This book is self-contained with main topics that include: Grover's algorithm, describing itsgeometrical interpretation and evolution by means of the spectral d ecomposition of the evolution operater Analytical solutions of quantum walks on important graphs like line, cycles, two-dimensional lattices, and hypercubes usingFourier transforms Quantum walks on generic graphs, describing methods to calculate the limit ing distribution and mixing time Spatial search algorithms, with emphasis on the abstract search algorithm (the two-dimensional lattice isused as an example) Szedgedy's quantum-walk model and a natural definition of quantum hitting time (the complete grap h is used as an example) The reader will benefit from the pedagogical aspects of the book, learning faster and withmore ease than would be possible from the primary research literature.

Title:Isotope-Based Quantum Information [electronic resource]
Author(s): Vladimir G. Plekhanov
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present book provides to the main ideas and techniques of the rapid progressing field of quantum information and quantum computation using isotope - mixed materials. It starts with an introduction to the isotope physics andthen describes of the i sotope - based quantum information and quantum computation. The ability to manipulate and control electron and/or nucleus spin in semiconductor devices provides a new route to expand the capabilities of inorganicsemiconductor-based electronics and to desi gn innovative devices with potential application in quantum computing. One of the major challenges towards these objectives is to develop semiconductor-based systems and architectures in whichthe spatial distribution of spins and their properties can be c ontrolled. For instance, to eliminate electron spin decoherence resulting from hyperfine interaction due to nuclear spin background, isotopically controlled devices areneeded (i.e., nuclear spin-depleted). In other emerging concepts, the control of the sp atial distribution of isotopes with nuclear spins is a prerequisite to implement the quantum bits (or qbits). Therefore, stable semiconductorisotopes are important elements in the development of solid-state quantum information. There are not only differen t algorithms of quantum computation discussed but also the different models of quantum computers are presented. Withnumerous illustrations this small book is of great interest for undergraduate students taking courses in mesoscopic physics or nanoelectron ics as well as quantum information, and academic and industrial researches working in thisfield

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book of nature is written in the language of mathematics -- Galileo Galilei How is it possible to predict weather patterns for tomorrow, with access solely to todays weather data? And how is it possible to predict theaerodynamic behavior of an a ircraft that has yet to be built? The answer is computer simulations based on mathematical models sets of equations that describe the underlying physical properties. However, these equations areusually much too complicated to solve, either by the smarte st mathematician or the largest supercomputer. This problem is overcome by constructing an approximation: a numerical model with a simpler structure can be translated into aprogram that tells the computer how to carry out the simulation. This book conveys the fundamentals of mathematical models, numerical methods and algorithms. Opening with a tutorial on mathematical models and analysis, it proceeds tointroduce the most important classes of numerical methods, with finite element, finite difference and sp ectral methods as central tools. The concluding section describes applications in physics and engineering, including wavepropagation, heat conduction and fluid dynamics. Also covered are the principles of computers and programming, including MATLAB

Title:A Short History of Mathematical Population Dynamics [electronic resource]

Note:

As Eugene Wigner stressed, mathematics has proven unreasonably effective in the physical sciences and their technological applications. The role of mathematics in the biological, medical and social sciences has been much moremodest but has recentl y grown thanks to the simulation capacity offered by modern computers.

This book traces the history of population dynamics---a theoretical subject closely connected to genetics, ecology, epidemiology anddemography---where mathematics has brought si gnificant insights. It presents an overview of the genesis of several important themes: exponential growth, from Euler and Malthus to the Chinese one-child policy the development ofstochastic models, from Mendel's laws and the question of extinction of fa mily names to percolation theory for the spread of epidemics, and chaotic populations, where determinism and randomness intertwine.

The reader of thisbook will see, from a different perspective, the problems that scientists face when governments as k for reliable predictions to help control epidemics (AIDS, SARS, swine flu), manage renewable resources (fishing quotas, spread ofgenetically modified organisms) or anticipate demographic evolutions such as aging.

Title:Mechanics [electronic resource] : From Newton's Laws to Deterministic Chaos
Author(s): Florian Scheck
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book covers all topics in mechanics from elementary Newtonian mechanics, the principles of canonical mechanics and rigid body mechanics to relativistic mechanics and nonlinear dynamics. It was among the first textbooks toinclude dynamical system s and deterministic chaos in due detail. As compared to the previous editions the present fifth edition is updated and revised with more explanations, additional examples and sections on Noether's theorem.Symmetries and invariance principles, the basic ge ometric aspects of mechanics as well as elements of continuum mechanics also play an important role. The book will enable the reader to develop general principles from which equationsof motion follow, to understand the importance of canonical mechanics an d of symmetries as a basis for quantum mechanics, and to get practice in using general theoretical concepts and tools that are essential for all branches ofphysics. The book contains more than 120 problems with complete solutions, as well as some practica l examples which make moderate use of personal computers. This will be appreciated in particular by students using this textbook toaccompany lectures on mechanics. The book ends with some historical notes on scientists who made important contributions to the development of mechanics

Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:You love sky watching and are excited by what you see through your telescope. You want to keep a record of what you see. You want others to see it. These are all good reasons to put down your pencil and pad and get startedcybersketching! What is cybe rsketching? It is using a small computer, such as a laptop or a PDA, to make a sketch of what you see through your telescope or even with your naked eye. Particularly good subjects are the Moon and thebrighter planets, but even deep space has much to offe r a cybersketcher. Why cybersketch? Sketching what you see is a fantastic way not only to record what you see but to share it with others. Before imaging, sketching was the only waypeople had of sharing their discoveries. With all the fancy new imaging de vices around, sketching has become something of a lost art. But it shouldnt be! Not only is it an inexpensive and quick way to record and share what you see.It also helps you to hone your observational skills. Using a computer gives you a variety of excit ing and fun tools to use and ways to make your sketches almost professional, so you can show them off and display them. In this book,Peter Grego outlines the evolution of cybersketching, with a brief review of the history of computers, hardware and softwa re, and how to use the tools that are now available to astronomy buffs. If you are not sketching because youthink it is old-fashioned, or if you are sketching using only a pencil and paper, read this book and see why you are missing out on some terrific n ew technologies that are easy to use and affordable to nearly everyone. Become anastronomical cybersketcher, and you will find that the time you spend exploring the night sky is even more rewarding than you ever imagined

James Herod
Date:2009
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 presents mathematical biology as a field with a unity of its own, rather than only the intrusion of one science into another. It updates an earlier successful edition and greatly expands the concept of the computerbiology laboratory, giving students a general perspective of the field before proceeding to more specialized topics. The book focuses on problems of contemporary interest, such as cancer, genetics, and the rapidly growing field ofgenomics. It includes new chapters on parasites, ca ncer, and phylogenetics, along with an introduction to online resources for DNA, protein lookups, and popular pattern matching tools such as BLAST. In addition, the emerging field ofalgebraic statistics is introduced and its power illustrated in the conte xt of phylogenetics. A unique feature of the book is the integration of a computer algebra system into the flow of ideas in a supporting but unobtrusive role.Syntax for both the Maple and Matlab systems is provided in a tandem format. The use of a compute r algebra system gives the students the opportunity to examine what if scenarios, allowing them to investigate biological systems in away never before possible. For students without access to Maple or Matlab, each topic presented is complete. Graphic visu alizations are provided for all mathematical results. Mathematical Biology includes extensive exercises, problemsand examples. A year of calculus with linear algebra is required to understand the material presented. The biology presented proceeds from the study of populations down to the molecular level no previous coursework in biology isnecessary. The book is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students studying mathematics or biology and for scientists and researchers who wish to study the appli cations of mathematics and computers in the natural sciences

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Catadioptric telescopes (CATs), such as the Schmidt Cassegrains, are increasingly popular with todays amateur astronomers and are capable of showing even the novice observer thousands of beautiful deep space wonders. ModernCATs, though, have become i ncreasingly reliant on computers. This allows them to automatically point to and track celestial objects, making astronomy more accessible to more people than ever before. Unfortunately, because of thehigh-tech nature of these telescopes, selecting one an d learning how to use it is often a difficult experience for stargazers both old and new. Thats where Choosing and Using the New CAT comes in. This book guides even the mostgreenhorn astronomer past the pitfalls encountered on the path to enjoying the bea uties and mysteries of the universe. Here you will learn not just which telescope is right for you but how to set up, operate, and maintain the mostcomplex and electronics-laden CAT. There are plenty of tips for keeping the new CAT happy and working corre ctly, and there is even guidance on advanced applications, such as hooking computers to CATs and using these telescopes to takegorgeous pictures of planets and deep space objects. This book gives readers the benefit of the authors thirty-five years experi ence using and enjoying catadioptric telescopes and solving the problems that inevitably crop up. If youdream of owning a telescope or are frustrated by the telescope you already own, this is the book for you!

Note:Information is an important feature of the modern world. Mathematical techniques underlie the devices that we use to handle it, for example, mobile phones, digital cameras, and personal computers. This book is an integratedintroduction to the mathema tics of coding, that is, replacing information expressed in symbols, such as a natural language or a sequence of bits, by another message using (possibly) different symbols. There are three main reasons fordoing this: economy, reliability, and security, a nd each is covered in detail. Only a modest mathematical background is assumed, the mathematical theory being introduced at a level that enables the basic problems to be statedcarefully, but without unnecessary abstraction. Other features include: clear a nd careful exposition of fundamental concepts, including optimal coding, data compression, and public-key cryptography concise but complete proofs ofresults coverage of recent advances of practical interest, for example in encryption standards, authentica tion schemes, and elliptic curve cryptography numerous examples and exercises, and a full solutions manual available tolecturers from www.springer.com This modern introduction to all aspects of coding is suitable for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate courses in mathematics, computer science, electrical engineering, or informatics.

Title:Measure, Topology, and Fractal Geometry [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gerald Edgar
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:For the Second Edition of this highly regarded textbook, Gerald Edgar has made numerous additions and changes, in an attempt to provide a clearer and more focused exposition. The most important addition is an increased emphasison the packing measure, so that now it is often treated on a par with the Hausdorff measure. The topological dimensions were rearranged for Chapter 3, so that the covering dimension is the major one, and the inductive dimensions arethe variants. A reduced cover class notion was introduced to help in proofs for Method I or Method II measures. Research results since 1990 that affect these elementary topics have been taken into account. Some examples have beenadded, including Barnsley leaf and Julia set, and most of the figures ha ve been re-drawn. From reviews of the First Edition: ...there has been a deluge of books, articles and television programmes about the beautiful mathematicalobjects, drawn by computers using recursive or iterative algorithms, which Mandelbrot christened f ractals. Gerald Edgar's book is a significant addition to this deluge. Based on a course given to talented high-school students at OhioUniversity in 1988, it is, in fact, an advanced undergraduate textbook about the mathematics of fractal geometry, treati ng such topics as metric spaces, measure theory, dimension theory, and even some algebraic topology...the book alsocontains many good illustrations of fractals... - Mathematics Teaching The book can be recommended to students who seriously want to know ab out the mathematical foundation of fractals, and to lecturers who want to illustrate astandard course in metric topology by interesting examples. - Christoph Bandt, Mathematical Reviews ...not only intended to fit mathematics students who wish to learn fr actal geometry from its beginning but also students incomputer science who are interested in the subject. [For such students] the author gives the required topics from metric topology and measure

Title:Numerical Methods for Laplace Transform Inversion [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alan M Cohen
Date:2007
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Operational methods have been used for over a century to solve many problemsfor example, ordinary and partial differential equations. In many problems it is fairly easy to obtain the Laplace transform, but it can be verydemanding to determine the inv erse Laplace transform that is the solution of the given problem. Sometimes, after some difficult contour integration, we find that a series solution results, but even this may be quite difficult toevaluate in order to get an answer at a particular time v alue. The advent of computers has given an impetus to developing numerical methods for the determination of the inverse Laplace transform. This book gives background material onthe theory of Laplace transforms together with a comprehensive list of methods that are available at the current time. Computer programs are included for those methods that perform consistently well on a wide range of Laplacetransforms. Audience This book is intended for engineers, scientists, mathematicians, statisticians and fina ncial planners

Title:Reliability, Life Testing and the Prediction of Service Lives [electronic resource] : For Engineers and Scientists

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is intended for students and practitioners who have had a calculus-based statistics course and who have an interest in safety considerations such as reliability, strength, and duration-of-load or service life. Manypersons studying statistic al science will be employed professionally where the problems encountered are obscure, what should be analyzed is not clear, the appropriate assumptions are equivocal, and data are scant. Yet tutorial problemsof this nature are virtually never encountered in coursework. In this book there is no disclosure with many of the data sets what type of investigation should be made or what assumptions are to be used. Most reliability practitionerswill be employed where personal interaction between disciplines is a necessity. A section is included on communication skills to facilitate model selection and formulation based on verifiable assumptions, rather than favorableconclusions. However, whether the answer is right can never be ascertained. Past and current appl ications of stochastic modeling to life-length can only be a guide for future adaptations under different conditions, with newmaterials in unknown usages. This book unifies the study of cumulative-damage distributions, namely, Wald and Tweedie (i.e., inve rse-Gaussian and its reciprocal) with fatigue-life. These distributions are most useful when thecoefficient-of-variation is more appropriate than is the variance as a measure of dispersion. It is shown, uniquely, that the same hyperbolic-sine transformati on of each life length variate has a Chi-square one-df distribution. Thisproperty is useful in the sample statistics. These IHRA distributions realistically model life-length, strength or duration of load under linear cumulative damage and can be combined as approximations in non-linear situations. Sam C.Saunders has served as a research engineer for 17 years at the Boeing Scientific Research Laboratories, 20 years as a consultant to the Advisory Co

Title:Linear and Generalized Linear Mixed Models and Their Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jiming Jiang
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:This book covers two major classes of mixed effects models, linear mixed models and generalized linear mixed models, and it presents an up-to-date account of theory and methods in analysis of these models as well as theirapplications in various field s. The book offers a systematic approach to inference about non-Gaussian linear mixed models. Furthermore, it has included recently developed methods, such as mixed model diagnostics, mixed model selection,and jackknife method in the context of mixed mode ls. The book is aimed at students, researchers and other practitioners who are interested in using mixed models for statistical data analysis. The book is suitable for a course in a M.S.program in statistics, provided that the section of further results a nd technical notes in each of the first four chapters is skipped. If these four sections are included, the book may be used for a course in a Ph. D. program instatistics. A first course in mathematical statistics, the ability to use computers for data ana lysis, and familiarity with calculus and linear algebra are prerequisites. Additional statistical courses such as regression analysis and agood knowledge about matrices would be helpful. Jiming Jiang is Professor of Statistics and Director of the Statisti cal Laboratory at UC-Davis. He is a prominent researcher in the fields of mixed effects models and small areaestimation, and co-receiver of the Chinese National Natural Science Award and American Statistical Association's Outstanding Statistical Applicati on Award

Title:Ideals, Varieties, and Algorithms [electronic resource] : An Introduction to Computational Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Algebraic Geometry is the study of systems of polynomial equations in one or more variables, asking such questions as: Does the system have finitely many solutions, and if so how can one find them? And if there are infinitelymany solutions, how can t hey be described and manipulated? The solutions of a system of polynomial equations form a geometric object called a variety the corresponding algebraic object is an ideal. There is a close relationshipbetween ideals and varieties which reveals the intima te link between algebra and geometry. Written at a level appropriate to undergraduates, this book covers such topics as the Hilbert Basis Theorem, the Nullstellensatz, invarianttheory, projective geometry, and dimension theory. The algorithms to answer qu estions such as those posed above are an important part of algebraic geometry. Although the algorithmic roots of algebraic geometry are old, it is only inthe last forty years that computational methods have regained their earlier prominence. New algorithm s, coupled with the power of fast computers, have led to both theoretical advances and interesting applications, for example inrobotics and in geometric theorem proving. In addition to enhancing the text of the second edition, with over 200 pages reflecti ng changes to enhance clarity and correctness, this third edition of Ideals, Varieties and Algorithmsincludes: A significantly updated section on Maple in Appendix C Updated information on AXIOM, CoCoA, Macaulay 2, Magma, Mathematica and SINGULAR A shorte r proof of the Extension Theorem presented in Section 6 of Chapter 3 From the 2ndEdition: I consider the book to be wonderful. ... The exposition is very clear, there are many helpful pictures, and there are a great many instructive exercises, some quite challenging ... offers the heart and soul of moderncommutative and algebraic geometry. -The American Mathematical Monthly

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform

Note:This book considers one of the basic problems in discrete mathematics: given a collection of constraints, describe up to isomorphism all the objects that meet them. Only a handful of classification results for combinatorialobjects are dated before th e mid-20th century indeed, it is through modern computers and recent developments in algorithms that this topic has flourished and matured. This book is the first comprehensive reference on combinatorialclassification algorithms, with emphasis on both the general theory and application to central families of combinatorial objects, in particular, codes and designs. The book will be of great interest to researchers and can be used ascourse material for graduate courses in both computer science and mathemati cs

Enrique Castillo
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook, deals with tensors that are treated as vectors, and has a practical orientation. In addition to dealing with the classical topics of tensor books, new tensor concepts are introduced, such as the rotation of tensors,the transposer tenso r, the eigentensors, the permutation tensor structure, etc. The book covers an existing gap between the classic theory of tensors and the possibility of solving tensor problems with a computer. In fact, thecomputational algebra is formulated in matrix for m to facilitate its implementation on computers. For the first time tensor contraction is formulated in terms of matrix operations. A computer package , written in Mathematica, isavailable through Internet at: http://personales.unican.es/castie/tensors th at complements the book. In summary, the book is not a standard book on tensors because of its orientation, the many novel contributions included in it, thecareful notation and the stretching-condensing techniques used for most of the transformations used in the book

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Advanced Visual Quantum Mechanics is a systematic effort to investigate and to teach quantum mechanics with the aid of computer-generated animations. It is a self-contained textbook that combines selected topics from atomicphysics (spherical symmetry , the hydrogen atom, and particles with spin) with an introduction to quantum information theory (qubits, EPR paradox, teleportation, quantum computers). It explores relativistic quantum mechanics and thestrange behavior of Dirac equation solutions. A ser ies of appendices covers important topics from perturbation and scattering theory. The book places an emphasis on ideas and concepts, with a fair to moderate amount of mathematicalrigor. Though this book stands alone, it can also be paired with Thaller Vi sual Quantum Mechanics to form a comprehensive course in quantum mechanics. The software for the first book earned the European Academic Software Award 2000 foroutstanding innovation in its field

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years, the discovery of new algorithms for dealing with polynomial equations, coupled with their implementation on fast inexpensive computers, has sparked a minor revolution in the study and practice of algebraicgeometry. These algorithmic methods have also given rise to some exciting new applications of algebraic geometry. This book illustrates the many uses of algebraic geometry, highlighting some of the more recent applications of Grbnerbases and resultants. The book is written for nonsp ecialists and for readers with a diverse range of backgrounds. It assumes knowledge of the material covered in a standard undergraduate course in abstract algebra, and it would help tohave some previous exposure to Grbner bases. The book does not assume t he reader is familiar with more advanced concepts such as modules. For the new edition, the authors have added a unified discussion of how matrices can be used tospecify monomial orders a revised presentation of the Mora normal form algorithm two sections discussing the Grbner fan of an ideal and the Grbner Walk basis conversion algorithm and a new chapter on the theory of order domains,associated codes, and the Berlekamp-Massey-Sakata decoding algorithm. They have also updated the references, improved so me of the proofs, and corrected typographical errors. David Cox is Professor of Mathematics at Amherst College.John Little is Professor of Mathematics at College of the Holy Cross. Donal OShea is the Elizabeth T. Kennan Professor of Mathematics and Dean o f Faculty at Mt. Holyoke College. These authors also co-wrote the immensely successfulbook, Ideals, Varieties, and Algorithms
