Title:Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frits Agterberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newlydeveloped by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research by geomathematical colleagues, but by government organizations and industry worldwide. These includeWeights-of-Evidence modelling, mineral resource e stimation technology, trend surface analysis, automatic stratigraphic correlation and nonlinear geochemical exploration methods. The author has developed maximum likelihood methodologyand spline-fitting techniques for the construction of the international numerical geologic timescale. He has introduced the application of new theory of fractals and multifractals in the geostatistical evaluation of regional mineralresources and ore reserves and to study the spatial distribution of metals in rocks. The book also contains sections deemed important by the author but that have not been widely adopted because they require further research. Theseinclude the geometry of preferred orientations of contours and edge effects on maps, time series analysis of Quaternary retreating ice sheet related sedimentary data, estimation of first and last appearances of fossil taxa fromfrequency distributions of their observed first and last occurrences, tectonic reactivation along pre-existing schistosity planes in fold belts, us e of the grouped jackknife method for bias reduction in geometrical extrapolations, andnew applications of the theory of permanent, volume-independent frequency distributions

Title:Small Satellites and Their Regulation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ram S Jakhu
Joseph N Pelton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Since the launch of UoSat-1 of the University of Surrey (United Kingdom) in 1981, small satellites proved regularly to be useful, beneficial, and cost-effective tools. Typical tasks cover education and workforce development,technology demonstration, verification and validation, scientific and engineering research as well as commercial applications. Today the launch masses range over almost three orders of magnitude starting at less than a kilogram up to afew hundred kilograms, with budgets of less th an US$ 100.00 and up to millions within very short timeframes of sometimes less than two years. Therefore each category of small satellites provides specific challenges in design,development and operations. Small satellites offer great potentials to gain responsive, low-cost access to space within a short timeframe for institutions, companies, regions and countries beyond the traditional big players in thespace arena. For these reasons (particularly the low cost of construction, launch and operation), sma ll (micro, cube or nano) satellites are being preferred by students and educational institutions, amateur radio operators, small anddeveloping countries, international aid agencies and most recently by defense agencies and satellite operators who are exam ining deployment of constellation clusters instead of conventional application satellites. In some cases thesenew capabilities are being deployed as hosted payloads on larger satellites. The advent of hosted payloads as a significant part of the satellite industry represents a key new topic that this book will address. The number of smallsatellitesof various types--is increasing fast as their benefits are being realized. This short and unique interdisciplinary book, covering both technical and regulatory aspects, examines all the different types of applications andreasons for small as well as exploring technical and operational innovations that are being introduced. Italso examinesthe new technic

Title:Discrete Time Series, Processes, and Applications in Finance [electronic resource]

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:Most financial and investment decisions are based on considerations of possible future changes and require forecasts on the evolution of the financial world. Time series and processes are the natural tools for describing thedynamic behavior of financ ial data, leading to the required forecasts. This book presents a survey of the empirical properties of financial time series, their descriptions by means of mathematical processes, and some implications forimportant financial applications used in many ar eas like risk evaluation, option pricing or portfolio construction. The statistical tools used to extract information from raw data are introduced. Extensive multiscale empiricalstatistics provide a solid benchmark of stylized facts (heteroskedasticity, l ong memory, fat-tails, leverage), in order to assess various mathematical structures that can capture the observed regularities. The author introduces abroad range of processes and evaluates them systematically against the benchmark, summarizing the succe sses and limitations of these models from an empirical point of view. The outcome is that only multiscale ARCH processes with longmemory, discrete multiplicative structures and non-normal innovations are able to capture correctly the empirical properties. In particular, only a discrete time series framework allows to capture all the stylized facts in a process,whereas the stochastic calculus used in the continuum limit is too constraining. The present volume offers various applications and extensions for this class of processes including high-frequency volatility estimators, market riskevaluation, covariance estimation and multivariate extensions of the processes. The book discusses many practical implications and is addressed to practitioners and quants in the financial industry, as well as to academics, includinggraduate (Master or PhD level) students. The prerequisites are basic statistics and some elementary financial mathematics. Gilles Zumbach

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades at least since the First World War. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many fields of science.While today's headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw significant global attention as well. In many countries of the world,landmines threaten the population and hinder re construction and fast, efficient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military conflicts. The reports in this volume, written by world leaders from academia,Government and industry, describe how basic ideas from mathematics, ra dar, sonar and chemistry can be combined with ongoing improvements in hardware and computation, as well as very new advances in multisensor data fusion, to yield thepromise of more sophisticated and accurate UXO detection and identification capabilities t han currently exist

Title:Bayesian Computation with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jim Albert
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:There has been a dramatic growth in the development and application of Bayesian inferential methods. Some of this growth is due to the availability of powerful simulation-based algorithms to summarize posterior distributions.There has been also a gro wing interest in the use of the system R for statistical analyses. R's open source nature, free availability, and large number of contributor packages have made R the software of choice for many statisticiansin education and industry. Bayesian Computation with R introduces Bayesian modeling by the use of computation using the R language. The early chapters present the basic tenets of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one andtwo-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian computational methods such as Lapl ace's method, rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are illustrated in the context of a random effects model. The construction and implementation ofMarkov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These simulation-based algorithms are implemente d for a variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and binary response regression, hierarchical modeling, order-restrictedinference, and robust modeling. Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computinglanguage, is described with several illustrative examples. This book is a suitable companion book for an introductory course on Bayesian methods and is valuable to the statistical practitioner who wishes to learn more about the Rlanguage and Bayesian methodology. The LearnBayes package, written by the author and available from the CRAN website, contains all of the R functions described in the book. The s econd edition contains several new topics such as the useof mixtures of conjugate priors and the use of Zellners g priors to choose between models in linear regression.

Note:Special functions are pervasive in all fields of science and industry. The most well-known application areas are in physics, engineering, chemistry, computer science and statistics. Because of their importance, several books andwebsites (see for inst ance http: functions.wolfram.com) and a large collection of papers have been devoted to these functions. Of the standard work on the subject, namely the Handbook of Mathematical Functions with formulas, graphs andmathematical tables edited by Milton Abram owitz and Irene Stegun, the American National Institute of Standards claims to have sold over 700 000 copies! But so far no project has been devoted to the systematic study of continuedfraction representations for these functions. This handbook is the res ult of such an endeavour. We emphasise that only 10% of the continued fractions contained in this book, can also be found in the Abramowitz and Stegun project or atthe Wolfram website!

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The process of discovery in science and technology may require investigation of a large number of features, such as factors, genes or molecules. In Screening, statistically designed experiments and analyses of the resulting datasets are used to ident ify efficiently the few features that determine key properties of the system under study. This book brings together accounts by leading international experts that are essential reading for those working in fieldssuch as industrial quality improvement, eng ineering research and development, genetic and medical screening, drug discovery, and computer simulation of manufacturing systems or economic models. Our aim is to promote cross-fertilizationof ideas and methods through detailed explanations, a variety o f examples and extensive references. Topics cover both physical and computer simulated experiments. They include screening methods for detecting factors that affect thevalue of a response or its variability, and for choosing between various different resp onse models. Screening for disease in blood samples, for genes linked to a disease and for new compounds in the search for effective drugs are alsodescribed. Statistical techniques include Bayesian and frequentist methods of data analysis, algorithmic met hods for both the design and analysis of experiments, and the construction of fractional factorial designs and orthogonalarrays. The material is accessible to graduate and research statisticians, and to engineers and chemists with a working knowledge of s tatistical ideas and techniques. It will be of interest to practitioners and researchers who wish tolearn about useful methodologies from within their own area as well as methodologies that can be translated from one area to another. Angela Dean is Profes sor of Statistics at The Ohio State University, USA. She is a Fellow of theAmerican Statistical Association, the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, and an elected member of the International Statisti

Title:Introduction to Modern Portfolio optimization with NUOPT and S-PLUS [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bernd Scherer
R. Douglas Martin
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform

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. A highly recommended and practical hand book for the consummate professional and student alike!Steven P. Greiner, Ph.D. Chief Large Cap Quant & Fundamental Research Manager Harris Investment Management The authors take a huge ste
