Note:Selected papers submitted by participants of the international Conference Stochastic Analysis and Applied Probability 2010 ( www.saap2010.org ) make up the basis of this volume. The SAAP 2010 was held in Tunisia, from 7-9October, 2010, and was organi zed by the Applied Mathematics & Mathematical Physics research unit of the preparatory institute to the military academies of Sousse (Tunisia), chaired by Mounir Zili. The papers cover theoretical,numerical and applied aspects of stochastic processes and stochastic differential equations. The study of such topic is motivated in part by the need to model, understand, forecast and control the behavior of many natural phenomenathat evolve in time in a random way. Such phenomena appear in the fields of financ e, telecommunications, economics, biology, geology, demography, physics, chemistry, signal processing and modern control theory, to mention just a few.As this book emphasizes the importance of numerical and theoretical studies of the stochastic differenti al equations and stochastic processes, it will be useful for a wide spectrum of researchers in applied probability, stochasticnumerical and theoretical analysis and statistics, as well as for graduate students. To make it more complete and accessible for graduate students, practitioners and researchers, the editors Mounir Zili and Daria Filatova have includeda survey dedicated to the basic concepts of numerical analysis of the stochastic differential equations, written by Henri Schurz

Title:Recursive Partitioning and Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Heping Zhang
Burton H Singer
Date:2010
Edition:Second
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The routes to many important outcomes including diseases and ultimately death as well as financial credit consist of multiple complex pathways containing interrelated events and conditions. We have historically lacked effectivemethodologies for ident ifying these pathways and their non-linear and interacting features. This book focuses on recursive partitioning strategies as a response to the challenge of pathway characterization. A highlight of the secondedition is the many worked examples, most of t hem from epidemiology, bioinformatics, molecular genetics, physiology, social demography, banking, and marketing. The statistical issues, conceptual and computational, are not only treatedin detail in the context of important scientific questions, but als o an array of substantively-driven judgments are explicitly integrated in the presentation of examples. Going considerably beyond the standard treatments of recursivepartitioning that focus on pathway representations via single trees, this second edition has entirely new material devoted to forests from predictive and interpretive perspectives. For contexts where identification of factorscontributing to outcomes is a central issue, both random and deterministic forest generation methods are introduced via examples in genetics and epidemiology. The trees in deterministic forests are reproducible and more easilyinterpretable than the components of random forests. Also new in the second edition is an extensive treatment of survival forests and post-market ev aluation of treatment effectiveness. Heping Zhang is Professor of Public Health,Statistics, and Child Study, and director of the Collaborative Center for Statistics in Science, at Yale University. He is a Fellow of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics, a MyrtoLefkopoulou Distinguished Lecturer Awarded by Harvard School of Public Health, and a Medallion lecturer selected by the Institute of Mathematical Statis

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is the first of its kind to describe interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical studies. It views analyses of biomedical data sets, such as cancer morbidity and mortality, from a different and richer than classicepidemiological perspective by using mathematical modeling methods, including ones providing insights into probable mechanisms of human carcinogenesis. The book will be useful for many specialists, e.g., epidemiologists, oncologists,medical researchers, biologists, public health and environmental specialists, and specialists in mathematical modeling. Medical, biology and math undergraduates and postgraduates, as well as basic and applied researchers attempting toextend their studies in collaboration with other specialists in interdi sciplinary teams, will find practical information here. Biomedical specialists could be interested in historical aspects of cancer treatment and prevention,mechanisms of carcinogenesis, cancer risk factors, cancer mortality and morbidity trends in the U.S . over a more than 50-year period, as well as specific features of cancer histotypes, and recent approaches to cancer prevention.Readers interested in analytic aspects can find information on existing and innovative approaches used in interdisciplinary st udies such as stochastic process models, microsimulation of interventions, and empirical Bayes approaches.This book was written by authors with different backgrounds who teamed in an interdisciplinary group.

Note:Much of biology can be understood in terms of demography. It is the demographic processes of birth and death which govern rates of population growth and the rates at which gene frequencies change. The analysis of demographicprocesses in free-living o rganisms is, however, far from simple. Scientists from diverse fields in biology and statistics have united to address the challenges by developing mark-recapture methods and other approaches. Progress hasbeen rapid, and this volume represents a snapshot of the emerging field. It has eleven sections in total, covering the most important biological and statistical frontiers, new software developments, and an open forum. It covers thelatest approaches in modeling population dynamics, evolutionary ecology an d wildlife biology. It addresses issues in the estimation of abundance and movement, and it covers new statistical approaches in the combination of information,Bayesian statistics, Robust Designs and the modeling of state-uncertainty

Note:Human rights issues are shaping the modern world. They define the expectations by which nations are judged and affect the policy of governments, corporations, and foundations. They have set the agenda in prosecutions at theInternational Criminal Cour t at the Hague, funding decisions by the International Monetary Fund, and corporate expansion programs by multinationals. Statistics is central to the modern perspective on human rights. It allows researchersto measure the effect of health care policies, the penetration of educational opportunity, and progress towards gender equality. The new wave of entrepreneurial charities demands impact assessments and documentation of milestoneachievement. Non-governmental organizations need statistics to build cases , conduct surveys, and target their efforts. This book describes the statistics that underlie the social science research in human rights. It includes casestudies, methodology, and research papers that discuss the fundamental measurement issues. It is int ended as an introduction to applied human rights research. The editors of the book are Jana Asher, David Banks, and Fritz Scheuren.Jana Asher led the first national human rights survey in Sierra Leone and provided statistical support for surveys in Iraq, Kosovo, East Timor and Peru. She is the former Senior Program Associate in the Science and Human Rights Programat the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

Title:The Frailty Model [electronic resource]
Author(s): Luc Duchateau
Paul Janssen
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:Clustered survival data are encountered in many scientific disciplines including human and veterinary medicine, biology, epidemiology, public health and demography. Frailty models provide a powerful tool to analyse clusteredsurvival data. In contrast to the large number of research publications on frailty models, relatively few statistical software packages contain frailty models. It is demanding for statistical practitioners and graduate students tograsp a good knowledge on frailty models from the e xisting literature. This book provides an in-depth discussion and explanation of the basics of frailty model methodology for such readers. The discussion includes parametric andsemiparametric frailty models and accelerated failure time models. Common tech niques to fit frailty models include the EM-algorithm, penalised likelihood techniques, Laplacian integration and Bayesian techniques. More advanced frailtymodels for hierarchical data are also included. Real-life examples are used to demonstrate how part icular frailty models can be fitted and how the results should be interpreted. The programs to fit all the worked-out examples in thebook are available from the Springer website with most of the programs developed in the freeware packages R and Winbugs. T he book starts with a brief overview of some basic concepts in classical survival analysis, collecting what isneeded for the reading on the more complex frailty models. Luc Duchateau is Associate Professor of Statistics at the Faculty of Veterinary Medici ne of the Ghent University, Belgium. He is board member of the Quetelet Society (BelgianRegion of the International Biometric Society) and of the International Biometric Society Channel Network.

Title:Survival and Event History Analysis [electronic resource] : A Process Point of View

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Time-to-event data are ubiquitous in fields such as medicine, biology, demography, sociology, economics and reliability theory. Recently, a need to analyze more complex event histories has emerged. Examples are individuals thatmove among several stat es, frailty that makes some units fail before others, internal time-dependent covariates, and the estimation of causal effects from observational data. The aim of this book is to bridge the gap between standardtextbook models and a range of models where t he dynamic structure of the data manifests itself fully. The common denominator of such models is stochastic processes. The authors show how counting processes, martingales, and stochasticintegrals fit very nicely with censored data. Beginning with standa rd analyses such as Kaplan-Meier plots and Cox regression, the presentation progresses to the additive hazard model and recurrent event data. Stochastic processes arealso used as natural models for individual frailty they allow sensible interpretations of a number of surprising artifacts seen in population data. The stochastic process framework is naturally connected to causality. The authors showhow dynamic path analyses can incorporate many modern causality ideas in a framework that takes the time aspec t seriously. To make the material accessible to the reader, a large number of practical examples, mainly from medicine, aredeveloped in detail. Stochastic processes are introduced in an intuitive and non-technical manner. The book is aimed at investigator s who use event history methods and want a better understanding of the statistical concepts. It issuitable as a textbook for graduate courses in statistics and biostatistics. Odd O. Aalen is professor of medical statistics at the University of Oslo, Norwa y. His Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975 introducedcounting processes and martingales in event history analysis. He has also contributed to numerous other areas of event history

Title:Indirect Sampling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Pierre Lavalle
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:Following the classical sampling theory, the survey statistician selects samples of people, businesses or others, in order to obtain the desired information. Drawing the samples is usually done by randomly selecting from a listrepresenting the target population. In practice, this list is often not available. At best, the statistician only has access to a different list, indirectly related to the targeted population. The example of a survey of children wherethe statistician only has a list of adult pe rsons is a typical case. In this case, the statistician first draws a sample of adults, and for each selected adult, the statistician then identifies his/her children. The survey is done fromthe latter. This is what is called indirect sampling. When indir ect sampling is used jointly with the sampling of clusters of persons (families, for example), many complications arise for the survey statistician. One of thecomplications relates to the computation of the estimates from the survey. The production of est imates of simple totals or means can then become nightmares for the survey statistician. To solve this problem, the author proposes asimple solution, easy to implement, that is called the generalised weight share method. This book is the reference on indi rect sampling and the generalised weight share method. It contains the different developments done by the authoron these subjects. The theory surrounding them is presented, but also different possible applications that drive its interest. The reader will find in this book the answer to questions that come, inevitably, when working in a contextof indirect sampling. Pierre Lavalle has been a survey statistician at Statistics Canada since 1985. He gas worked in social, business, and agricultural surveys. He has also worked for Eurostat in Luxembourg

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Sustainability of pension systems, intergeneration fiscal equity under population aging, and accounting for health care benefits for future retirees are examples of problems that cannot be solved without understanding the natureof population forecast s and their uncertainty. Similarly, the accuracy of population estimates directly affects both the distributions of formula-based government allocations to sub-national units and the apportionment of politicalrepresentation. The book develops the statisti cal foundation for addressing such issues. Areas covered include classical mathematical demography, event history methods, multi-state methods, stochastic population forecasting, samplingand census coverage, and decision theory. The methods are illustrate d with empirical applications from Europe and the U.S. For statisticians the book provides a unique introduction to demographic problems in a familiar language. Fordemographers, actuaries, epidemiologists, and professionals in related fields, the book pre sents a unified statistical outlook on both classical methods of demography and recent developments. To facilitate its classroom use, exercisesare included. Over half of the book is readily accessible to undergraduates, but more maturity may be required t o benefit fully from the complete text. Knowledge of differential and integral calculus, matrix algebra, basic probabilitytheory, and regression analysis is assumed. Juha M. Alho is Professor of Statistics, University of Joensuu, Finland, and Bruce D. Spe ncer is Professor of Statistics and Faculty Fellow at the Institute for Policy Research, NorthwesternUniversity. Both have contributed extensively to statistical demography and served in advisory roles and as statistical consultants in the field

Title:Applied Mathematical Demography [electronic resource]
Author(s): Nathan Keyfitz
Hal Caswell
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:The third edition of this classic text maintains its focus on applications of demographic models, while extending its scope to matrix models for stage-classified populations. The authors first introduce the life table to describeage-specific mortalit y, and then use it to develop theory for stable populations and the rate of population increase. This theory is then revisited in the context of matrix models, for stage-classified as well as age-classifiedpopulations. Reproductive value and the stable eq uivalent population are introduced in both contexts, and Markov chain methods are presented to describe the movement of individuals through the life cycle. Applications of mathematicaldemography to population projection and forecasting, kinship, microdemo graphy, heterogeneity, and multi-state models are considered. The new edition maintains and extends the books focus on the consequences of changes in the vitalrates. Methods are presented for calculating the sensitivity and elasticity of population growth rate, life expectancy, stable stage distribution, and reproductive value, and for applying those results in comparative studies.Stage-classified models are important in both human demography and population ecology, and this edition features examples from both human and non-human populations. In short, this third edition enlarges considerably the scope and powerof demography. It will be an essential resource for students and researchers in demography and in animal and plant population ecology. Nathan Keyf itz is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Harvard University. After holding positions atCanadas Dominion Bureau of Statistics, the University of Chicago, and the University of California at Berkeley, he became Andelot Professor of Sociology and Demography at Harvard in 1972. After retiring from Harvard, he becameDirector of the Population Program at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) in Vienna from 1983 to 1993. Keyfi
