Title:LEP - The Lord of the Collider Rings at CERN 1980-2000 [electronic resource] : The Making, Operation and Legacy of the World's Largest Scientific Instrument
Author(s): Herwig Schopper
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Housed by a 4 m diameter tunnel of 27 km circumference, with huge underground labs and numerous surface facilities, and set up with a precision of 0.1 mm per kilometer, the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP) was not only thelargest but also one o f the most sophisticated scientific research instrument ever created by Man. Located at CERN, near Geneva, LEP was built during the years 1983 - 1989, was operational until 2000, and corroborated the standardmodel of particle physics through continous hig h precision measurements. The Author, director-general of CERN during the crucial period of the construction of LEP, recounts vividly the convoluted decision-making and technicalimplementation processes - the tunnel alone being a highly challenging geo- a nd civil engineering project - and the subsequent extremely fruitful period of scientific research. Finally he describes the difficult decision to close downLEP, at a time when the discovery of the Higgs boson seemed within reach. LEP was eventually disma ntled in 2000, enabling the tunnel to be reused for building the next generation machine, the much more powerful Large Hadron Collider(LHC), an upgrade then called LEP3 and foreseen from the beginning. It became operational just as this account was being completed. Written by the main protagonist responsible for making LEP a reality, this is the definitive insidestory of a remarkable machine and the many thousands of scientists and engineers from around the world, whose efforts contributed to the new know ledge it produced

Title:Parallel Coordinates [electronic resource] : Visual Multidimensional Geometry and Its Applications
Author(s): Alfred Inselberg
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 book is about visualization, systematically incorporating the fantastic human pattern recognition into the problem-solving process, and focusing on parallel coordinates. The barrier, imposed by our three-dimensionalhabitation and perceptual expe rience, has been breached by this innovative and versatile methodology. The accurate visualization of multidimensional problems and multivariate data unlocks insights into the role of dimensionality.Beginning with an introductory chapter on geometry, the mathematical foundations are intuitively developed, interlaced with applications to data mining, information visualization, computer vision, geometric modeling, collisionavoidance for air traffic and process-control. Many results appear for the first time . Multidimensional lines, planes, proximities, surfaces and their properties are unambiguously recognized (i.e. convexity viewed in any dimension)enabling powerful construction algorithms (for intersections, interior-points, linear-programming). Key featu res of Parallel Coordinates: * An easy-to-read self-contained chapter on data mining and information visualization * Numerousexercises with solutions, from basic to advanced topics, course projects and research directions * Fast Track markers throughout p rovide a quick grasp of essential material. * Extensive bibliography, index, and a chapter containinga collection of recent results (i.e. visualizing large networks, complex-valued functions and more) Parallel Coordinates requires only an elementary knowl edge of linear algebra. It is well-suited for self-study and as a textbook (orcompanion) for courses on information visualization, data mining, mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, finance, management, manufacturing, in scientific disci plines and even the arts

Note:The construction of mathematical models is an essential scientific activity. Mathematics has long been associated with developments in the exact sciences and engineering, but more recently mathematical modelling has been used toinvestigate complex sy stems that arise in many other fields. The contributors to this book demonstrate the application of mathematics to modern research topics in ecology and environmental science, health and medicine, phylogeneticsand neural networks, theoretical chemistry, e conomics and management. The reader will find some review papers outlining current research directions in hot topics such as pattern formation and applications to medicine, and more targetedresearch papers on current developments in the various discipline s included. Both should provide insight and inspiration for further work on these subjects. The extensive relevant literature cited in some of the survey expositoryarticles is another feature

Title:Point Process Theory and Applications [electronic resource] : Marked Point and Piecewise Deterministic Processes
Author(s): Martin Jacobsen
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text offers a mathematically rigorous exposition of the basic theory of marked point processes developing randomly over time, and shows how this theory may be used to treat piecewise deterministic stochastic processes incontinuous time. The focu s is on point processes that generate only finitely many points in finite time intervals, resulting in piecewise deterministic processes with few jumps. The point processes are constructed from scratch withdetailed proofs and their distributions character ized using compensating measures and martingale structures. Piecewise deterministic processes are defined and identified with certain marked point processes, which are then used inparticular to construct and study a large class of piecewise deterministic Markov processes, whether time homogeneous or not. The second part of the book addresses applications of the just developed theory. This analysis of variousmodels in applied statistics and probability includes examples and exercises in survival analysis, branching processes, ruin probabilities, sports (soccer), finance and risk management (arbitrage and portfolio trading strategies), andqueueing theory. Graduate students and researchers interested in probabilistic modeling and its applications will find t his text an excellent resource, requiring for mastery a solid foundation in probability theory, measure andintegration, as well as some knowledge of stochastic processes and martingales. However, an explanatory introduction to each chapter highlights thos e portions that are crucial and those that can be omitted by non-specialists, makingthe material more accessible to a wider cross-disciplinary audience

Note:Foundations and Applications of MIS presents a unique systems theory approach to management information system (MIS) development. The development is driven by the need to eliminate ambiguity in specification, design andconstruction of the application software. Further, the authors show that the considerable effort being expanded nowadays on validation, verification and testing, as required in current software engineering practices, will be reduced.The approach also reinforces the belief that MIS deve lopment is independent of software development. The work presents an approach that provides a theoretical foundation for MIS development from the systems theoretic viewpoint alongwith practical applications ranging from a transaction processing system to a solver system. Both formal systems theory and automatic system generation based on the authors' newly extended Prolog offer a significant increase in theefficiency of specification, design and production of the application software, as well as an increa se in the functional reliability of the software produced. The book assumes a working knowledge of elementary set theory, logic, andfamiliarity with some systems concepts, such as the automaton model. Senior undergraduates and graduate students, researche rs in management information systems, systems engineers and systems scientists will benefit from this book

Title:Introduction to Modern Portfolio optimization with NUOPT and S-PLUS [electronic resource]

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In recent years portfolio optimization and construction methodologies have become an increasingly critical ingredient of asset and fund management, while at the same time portfolio risk assessment has become an essentialingredient in risk management, and this trend will only accelerate in the coming years. Unfortunately there is a large gap between the limited treatment of portfolio construction methods that are presented in most university courseswith relatively little hands-on experience and limite d computing tools, and the rich and varied aspects of portfolio construction that are used in practice in the finance industry. Current practice demands the use of modern methods ofportfolio construction that go well beyond the classical Markowitz mean-va riance optimality theory and require the use of powerful scalable numerical optimization methods. This book fills the gap between current university instructionand current industry practice by providing a comprehensive computationally-oriented treatment o f modern portfolio optimization and construction methods. The computational aspect of the book is based on extensive use of S-Plus, theS+NuOPT optimization module, the S-Plus Robust Library and the S+Bayes Library, along with about 100 S-Plus scripts and some CRSP sample data sets of stock returns. A special time-limited version of the S-Plus software isavailable to purchasers of this book. For money managers and investment professionals in the field, optimization is truly a can of worms rather left un-op ened, until now! Here lies a thorough explanation of almost all possibilitiesone can think of for portfolio optimization, complete with error estimation techniques and explanation of when non-normality plays a part.
