Title:Photoelectron Spectroscopy [electronic resource] : Bulk and Surface Electronic Structures
Author(s): Shigemasa Suga
Akira Sekiyama
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Photoelectron spectroscopy is now becoming more and more required to investigate electronic structures of various solid materials in the bulk, on surfaces as well as at buried interfaces. The energy resolution was much improved inthe last decade down to 1 meV in the low photon energy region. Now this technique is available from a few eV up to 10 keV by use of lasers, electron cyclotron resonance lamps in addition to synchrotron radiation and X-ray tubes. Highresolution angle resolved photoelectron sp ectroscopy (ARPES) is now widely applied to band mapping of materials. It attracts a wide attention from both fundamental science and material engineering. Studies of the dynamics of excitedstates are feasible by time of flight spectroscopywith fully util izing the pulse structures of synchrotron radiation as well as lasers including the free electron lasers (FEL). Spin resolved studies also made dramatic progress byusing higher efficiency spin detectors and two dimensional spin detectors. Polarization dep endent measurements in the whole photon energy spectrum of the spectra provide useful information on the symmetry of orbitals. The book dealswith the fundamental concepts and approaches for the application of this technique to materials studies. Complemen tary techniques such as inverse photoemission, photoelectron diffraction, photon spectroscopy including infrared andX-ray and scanning tunneling spectroscopy are presented. This book provides not only a wide scope of photoelectron spectroscopy of solids b ut also extends our understanding of electronic structures beyond photoelectron spectroscopy

Title:Networks of Echoes [electronic resource] : Imitation, Innovation and Invisible Leaders
Author(s): Bruce J West
Malgorzata Turalska
Paolo Grigolini
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Networks of Echoes: Imitation, Innovation and Invisible Leaders is a mathematically rigorous and data rich book on a fascinating area of the science and engineering of social webs. There are hundreds of complex networkphenomena whose statistical prop erties are described by inverse power laws. The phenomena of interest are not arcane events that we encounter only fleetingly, but are events that dominate our lives. We examine how this intermittentstatistical behavior intertwines itself with what appear s to be the organized activity of social groups. The book is structured as answers to a sequence of questions such as: How are decisions reached in elections and boardrooms?How is the stability of a society undermined by zealots and committed minorities, and how is that stability re-established? Can we learn to answer such questions about human behavior by studying the way flocks of birds retain theirformation when eluding a predator? These questions and others are answered using a generic model of a comp lex dynamic networkone whose global behavior is determined by a symmetric interaction among individuals based on socialimitation.The complexity of the network is manifest in time series resulting from self-organized critical dynamics that have divergent f irst and second moments, are non-stationary, non-ergodic, and non-Poisson. How phasetransitions in the network dynamics influence such activity as decision making is a fascinating story and provides a context for introducing many of the mathematical ideas necessary for understanding complex networks in general. Thedecision making model (DMM) is selected to emphasize that there are features of complex webs that supersede specific mechanisms and need to be understood from a general perspective. This insight ful overview of recent tools and theiruses may serve as an introduction and curriculum guide in related courses

Title:Bayesian Hierarchical Space-Time Models with Application to Significant Wave Height [electronic resource]
Author(s): Erik Vanem
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:This book provides an example of a thorough statistical treatment in space and time of ocean wave data. It is demonstrated how the flexible framework of Bayesian hierarchical space-time models can be applied to oceanographicprocesses such as signific ant wave height in order to describe dependence structures and uncertainties in the data. This monograph is a research book and it is in some sense cross-disciplinary. The methodology itself is firmly rootedin the statistical research tradition, based on probability theory and stochastic processes. However, the methodology has been applied to a problem within physical oceanography, analysing data for significant wave height, which are ofcrucial importance to ocean engineering disciplines. Indeed, the stat istical properties of significant wave height are important for the design, construction and operation of ships and other marine and coastal structures. Furthermore,the book addresses the question of whether climate change has an effect of the ocean wave climate, and if so what these effects might be. Thus, this book is an important contribution to the on-going debate on climate change, itsimplications and how to adapt to a changing climate, with a particular focus on the maritime industries and the marin e environment. This book should be of general interest to anyone with an interest in statistical modelling ofenvironmental processes, and in particular to those with a particular interest in the ocean wave climate. It is written on a level that should be understandable to everyone with a basic background in statistics or elementarymathematics, and an introduction to some basic concepts is given in appendices for the uninitiated reader. The intended readership incudes students and professionals involved in statistics, oceanography, ocean engineering,environmental research, climate sciences and risk assessment. Moreover, different stakeholders within the maritime industries such as design offices, classif

Note:This text introduces upper division undergraduate/beginning graduate students in mathematics, finance, or economics, to the core topics of a beginning course in finance/financial engineering. Particular emphasis is placed onexploiting the power of th e Monte Carlo method to illustrate and explore financial principles. Monte Carlo is the uniquely appropriate tool for modeling the random factors that drive financial markets and simulating their implications.The Monte Carlo method is introduced early and it is used in conjunction with the geometric Brownian motion model (GBM) to illustrate and analyze the topics covered in the remainder of the text. Placing focus on Monte Carlo methodsallows for students to travel a short road from theory to practical ap plications. Coverage includes investment science, mean-variance portfolio theory, option pricing principles, exotic options, option trading strategies, jumpdiffusion and exponential Lvy alternative models, and the Kelly criterion for maximizing investment growth. Novel features: inclusion of both portfolio theory and contingent claim analysis in a single text pricing methodology forexotic options expectation analysis of option trading strategies pricing models that transcend the BlackScholes framework opt imizing investment allocations concepts thoroughly explored through numerous simulation exercises numerousworked examples and illustrations The mathematical background required is a year and one-half course in calculus, matrix algebra covering solutions o f linear systems, and a knowledge of probability including expectation, densities andthe normal distribution. A refresher for these topics is presented in the Appendices. The programming background needed is how to code branching, loops and subroutines in some mathematical or general purpose language.

Title:Sequential Experimentation in Clinical Trials [electronic resource] : Design and Analysis
Author(s): Jay Bartroff
Tze Leung Lai
Mei-Chiung Shih
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 presents an integrated methodology for sequential experimentation in clinical trials. The methodology allows sequential learning during the course of a trial to improve the efficiency of the trial design, which oftenlacks adequate informati on at the planning stage. Adaptation via sequential learning of unknown parameters is a central idea not only in adaptive designs of confirmatory clinical trials but also in the theory of optimal nonlinearexperimental design, which the book covers as intr oductory material. Other introductory topics for which the book provides preparatory background include sequential testing theory, dynamic programming and stochastic optimization,survival analysis and resampling methods. In this way, the book gives a self -contained and thorough treatment of group sequential and adaptive designs, time-sequential trials with failure-time endpoints, and statistical inference atthe conclusion of these trials.

Note:Strategic Economic Decision-Making: Using Bayesian Belief Networks to Solve Complex Problems is a quick primer on the topic that introduces readers to the basic complexities and nuances associated with learning Bayes theoryand inverse probability for the first time. This brief is meant for non-statisticians who are unfamiliar with Bayes theorem,walkingthem through the theoretical phases of set and sample set selection, the axioms of probability,probability theory as it pertains to Bayes theorem, and posterior probabilities. All of these concepts are explained as they appear in the methodology of fitting a Bayes model, and upon completion of the text readers will be ableto mathematically determine posterior probabilities of multiple independent nodes across any system available for study. Very little has been published in the area of discrete Bayes theory, and this brief will appeal tonon-statisticians conducting research in the fields of engineering, computing, life sciences, and social sciences.

Note:Conflicts in the form of wars, or competition among countries and industrial institutions are plenty in human history. The introduction of game theory in the middle of the twentieth century shed insights and enabled researchers toanalyze this subject with mathematical rigor. From the ground-breaking work of VonNeumann and Morgenston, modern game theory evolved enormously. In the last few decades, Dynamic game theory framework has been deepened and generalizedfrom the pioneering work on differential g ames by R. Isaacs, L.S. Pontryagin and his school, and on stochastic games by Shapley. This book will expose the reader to some of the fundamental methodology in non-cooperative game theory,and highlight some numerical methods, along with some relevant ap plications. Since the early development days, differential game theory has had a significant impact in such diverse disciplines as applied mathematics, economics, systemstheory, engineering, operations, research, biology, ecology, environmental sciences, among others. Modern game theory now relies on wide ranging mathematical and computational methods, and relevant applications that are rich andchallenging. Game theory has been widely recognized as an important tool in many fields. Importance of game theo ry to economics is illustrated by the fact that numerous game theorists, such as John Forbes Nash, Jr., Robert J. Aumannand Thomas C. Schelling, have won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics Sciences. Simply put, game-theory has the potential to reshape the analysis of human interaction

Title:Why Society is a Complex Matter [electronic resource] : Meeting Twenty-first Century Challenges with a New Kind of Science

Edition:1
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Society is complicated. But this book argues that this does not place it beyond the reach of a science that can help to explain and perhaps even to predict social behaviour. As a system made up of many interacting agents people, groups, institutions and governments, as well as physical and technological structures such as roads and computer networks society can be regarded as a complex system. In recent years, scientists have made great progress inunderstanding how such complex systems operate, rang ing from animal populations to earthquakes and weather. These systems show behaviours that cannot be predicted or intuited by focusing on the individual components, but which emergespontaneously as a consequence of their interactions: they are said to be self-organized. Attempts to direct or manage such emergent properties generally reveal that top-down approaches, which try to dictate a particularoutcome, are ineffectual, and that what is needed instead is a bottom-up approach that aims to guide self-org anization towards desirable states. This book shows how some of these ideas from the science of complexity can beapplied to the study and management of social phenomena, including traffic flow, economic markets, opinion formation and the growth and struct ure of cities. Building on these successes, the book argues that the complex-systems view ofthe social sciences has now matured sufficiently for it to be possible, desirable and perhaps essential to attempt a grander objective: to integrate these efforts into a unified scheme for studying, understanding and ultimatelypredicting what happens in the world we have made. Such a scheme would require the mobilization and collaboration of many different research communities, and would allow society and its inter actions with the physical environment to beexplored through realistic models and large-scale data collection and analysis. It should enable us to find new and effective solutions

Note:The book comprises an assembly of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics collected over the last twenty years. Analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to many applications inenvironmental engineering, su ch as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilisation, carbon capture and storage, water resources management, hydrology, even climate chance. In order to assess the feasibility as well as thesafety of geotechnical applications, process-based m odelling is the only tool to put numbers, i.e. to quantify future scenarios. This charges a huge responsibility concerning the reliability of computational tools. Benchmarking is anappropriate methodology to verify the quality of modelling tools based on best practices. Moreover, benchmarking and code comparison foster community efforts. The benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open sourceproject to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation

Note:Mathematical Modeling for Complex Fluids and Flows provides researchers and engineering practitioners encountering fluid flows with state-of-the-art knowledge in continuum concepts and associated fluid dynamics. In doing so itsupplies the means to de sign mathematical models of these flows that adequately express the engineering physics involved. It exploits the implicit link between the turbulent flow of classical Newtonian fluids and the laminar andturbulent flow of non-Newtonian fluids such as thos e required in food processing and polymeric flows. The book develops a descriptive mathematical model articulated through continuum mechanics concepts for these non-Newtonian,viscoelastic fluids and turbulent flows. Each complex fluid and flow is examined in this continuum context as well as in combination with the turbulent flow of viscoelastic fluids. Some details are also explored via kinetic theory,especially viscoelastic fluids and their treatment with the Boltzmann equation. Both solution and modeli ng strategies for turbulent flows are laid out using continuum concepts, including a description of constructing polynomialrepresentations and accounting for non-inertial and curvature effects. Ranging from fundamental concepts to practical methodology, a nd including discussion of emerging technologies, this book is ideal for those requiring asingle-source assessment of current practice in this intricate yet vital field

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

Note:Six Sigma has arisen in the last two decades as a breakthrough Quality Management Methodology. With Six Sigma, we are solving problems and improving processes using as a basis one of the most powerful tools of human development:the scientific method. For the analysis of data, Six Sigma requires the use of statistical software, being R an Open Source option that fulfills this requirement. R is a software system that includes a programming language widely usedin academic and research departments. Nowad ays, it is becoming a real alternative within corporate environments. The aim of this book is to show how R can be used as the software tool in the development of Six Sigma projects. Thebook includes a gentle introduction to Six Sigma and a variety of ex amples showing how to use R within real situations. It has been conceived as a self contained piece. Therefore, it is addressed not only to Six Sigma practitioners,but also to professionals trying to initiate themselves in this management methodology. The book may be used as a text book as well

Title:Neutral and Indifference Portfolio Pricing, Hedging and Investing [electronic resource] : With applications in Equity and FX

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is written for quantitative finance professionals, students, educators, and mathematically inclined individual investors. It is about some of the latest developments in pricing, hedging, and investing in incompletemarkets. With regard to pr icing, two frameworks are fully elaborated: neutral and indifference pricing. With regard to hedging, the most conservative and relaxed hedging formulas are derived. With regard to investing, the neutralpricing methodology is also considered as a tool for connecting market asset prices with optimal positions in such assets. While there are many books on the financial mathematics of incomplete markets based on probability, andequivalent martingale measure approach to pricing, this book is based solely on t he analytical aspects of stochastic control, or more precisely, portfolio optimization. Namely, relying solely on portfolio optimization, neutral andindifference pricing as well as hedging methodologies were fully developed in the context of arbitrary dif fusiveMarkovian market models and portfolios of contracts. That was made possible by some recent discoveries, the most specificone being a recently found matrix inverse the fundamental matrix of derivatives pricing and hedging. This approach, while very general, is very feasible for practical implementations. So, many examples are fully derived. The readerwill get the full understanding of the relationship between neutral and indifference pricing, how to implement either one of these pricing methodologie s, how to implement hedging methodologies, and how to apply all these in equityportfolio valuations and foreign exchange.

Title:Modern Issues and Methods in Biostatistics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Mark Chang
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Classic biostatistics, a branch of statistical science, has as its main focus the applications of statistics in public health, the life sciences, and the pharmaceutical industry. Modern biostatistics, beyond just a simpleapplication of statistics, is a confluence of statistics and knowledge of multiple intertwined fields. The application demands, the advancements in computer technology, and the rapid growth of life science data (e.g., genomics data)have promoted the formation of modern biostatistics. There are at least three characteristics of modern biostatistics: (1) in-depth engagement in the application fields that require penetration of knowledge across several fields, (2)high-level complexity of data because they are longitudinal, incomplete, o r latent because they are heterogeneous due to a mixture of data or experiment types, because of high-dimensionality, which may make meaningful reductionimpossible, or because of extremely small or large size and (3) dynamics, the speed of development in methodology and analyses, has to match the fast growth of data with a constantly changing face. This book is written forresearchers, biostatisticians/statisticians, and scientists who are interested in quantitative analyses. The goal is to introduce moder n methods in biostatistics and help researchers and students quickly grasp key concepts and methods.Many methods can solve the same problem and many problems can be solved by the same method, which becomes apparent when those topics are discussed inthis s ingle volume

Title:Designing Quantitative Experiments [electronic resource] : Prediction Analysis
Author(s): John Wolberg
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The method of Prediction Analysis is applicable for anyone interested in designing a quantitative experiment. The design phase of an experiment can be broken down into problem dependent design questions (like the type of equipmentto use and the exper imental setup) and generic questions (like the number of data points required, range of values for the independent variables and measurement accuracy). This book is directed towards the generic design phase of theprocess. The methodology for this phase of the design process is problem independent and can be applied to experiments performed in most branches of science and technology. The purpose of the prediction analysis is to predict theaccuracy of the results that one can expect from a proposed experime nt. Prediction analyses can be performed using the REGRESS program which was developed by the author and can be obtained free-of-charge through the author's website.Many examples of prediction analyses are included in the book ranging from very simple exp eriments based upon a linear relationship between the dependent and independent variables to experiments in which the mathematical models arehighly non-linear

Title:Statistics for Innovation [electronic resource] : Statistical Design of Continuous Product Innovation
Author(s): Pasquale Erto
Date:2009
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The objective of this book is to illustrate statistical methodologies that incorporate physical and numerical experiments and that allow one to schedule and plan technological innovation, similar to any other productive activity.This methodology shou ld be implemented through a structured procedure aimed at reducing the high rate of commercial failure characterizing actual innovation processes. In fact, it is well known that: i) The rate of commercial failureof a innovative idea is very high (9094 out of 100 proposals for innovation undergo substantial failure in the EU and in the USA). ii) Low reliability in the long run and sensitivity to usage conditions are the factors thatdetermine the failure of the innovation. The definition of an iterative des ign activity is an objective that can be reached by subdividing the complex innovation process into short steps in experimental statistics research. Theapproach adopted to analyze customer needs and the tools used to reduce unwanted variability form the f ramework for the statistical design of continuous product innovation. Starting from the observation that product innovation isachieved when a quality that is able to satisfy a new customer need is conferred on the product and survives over real operating conditions and time, this book illustrates the operative steps required to perform the wholeinnovation process iteratively

Title:Innovation Networks [electronic resource] : New Approaches in Modelling and Analyzing
Author(s): Andreas Pyka
Andrea Scharnhorst
Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The science of graphs and networks has become by now a well-established tool for modelling and analyzing a variety of systems with a large number of interacting components. Starting from the physical sciences, applications havespread rapidly to the n atural and social sciences, as well as to economics, and are now further extended, in this volume, to the concept of innovations, viewed broadly. In an abstract, systems-theoretical approach, innovation can beunderstood as a critical event which destabili zes the current state of the system, and results in a new process of self-organization leading to a new stable state. The contributions to this anthology address different aspects of therelationship between innovation and networks. The various chapters in corporate approaches in evolutionary economics, agent-based modeling, social network analysis and econophysics and explore the epistemic tension between insights intoeconomics and society-related processes, and the insights into new forms of complex dynam ics

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:In the past decade, the study of networks has increased dramatically. Researchers from across the sciencesincluding biology and bioinformatics, computer science, economics, engineering, mathematics, physics, sociology, andstatisticsare more and more involved with the collection and statistical analysis of network-indexed data. As a result, statistical methods and models are being developed in this area at a furious pace, with contributions comingfrom a wide spectrum of disciplines. This book provides an up-to-date treatment of the foundations common to the statistical analysis of network data across the disciplines. The material is organized according to a statisticaltaxonomy, although the presentation entails a conscious balance of concepts versus m athematics. In addition, the examplesincluding extended cases studiesare drawn widely from the literature. This book should be of substantialinterest both to statisticians and to anyone else working in the area of network science. The coverage of topics i n this book is broad, but unfolds in a systematic manner, moving from descriptive (or exploratory) methods, tosampling, to modeling and inference. Specific topics include network mapping, characterization of network structure, network sampling, and the mo deling, inference, and prediction of networks, network processes, and network flows. Thisbook is the first such resource to present material on all of these core topics in one place. Eric Kolaczyk is a professor of statistics, and Director of the Program in Statistics, in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics atBoston University, where he also is an affiliated faculty member in the Center for Biodynamics, the Program in Bioinformatics, and the Division of Systems Engineering. His publications on ne twork-based topics include work ranging fromthe detection of anomalous traffic patterns in computer networks to the prediction of biological function in networks of interacting protein

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

Title:Markov Decision Processes With Their Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Qiying Hu
Wuyi Yue
Date:2008
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Markov decision processes (MDPs), also called stochastic dynamic programming, were first studied in the 1960s. MDPs can be used to model and solve dynamic decision-making problems that are multi-period and occur in stochasticcircumstances. There are three basic branches in MDPs: discrete-time MDPs, continuous-time MDPs and semi-Markov decision processes. Starting from these three branches, many generalized MDPs models have been applied to various practicalproblems. These models include partially obse rvable MDPs, adaptive MDPs, MDPs in stochastic environments, and MDPs with multiple objectives, constraints or imprecise parameters. Markov Decision Processes With Their Applicationsexamines MDPs and their applications in the optimal control of discrete e vent systems (DESs), optimal replacement, and optimal allocations in sequential online auctions. The book presents four main topics that are used to study optimalcontrol problems: *a new methodology for MDPs with discounted total reward criterion *transfo rmation of continuous-time MDPs and semi-Markov decision processes into a discrete-time MDPs model, thereby simplifying the application ofMDPs *MDPs in stochastic environments, which greatly extends the area where MDPs can be applied *applications of MDPs in optimal control of discrete event systems, optimal replacement, and optimal allocation in sequential onlineauctions. This book is intended for researchers, mathematicians, advanced graduate students, and engineers who are interested in optimal control , operation research, communications, manufacturing, economics, and electronic commerce

Title:Computational Turbulent Incompressible Flow [electronic resource] : Applied Mathematics: Body and Soul 4
Author(s): Johan Hoffman
Claes Johnson
Date:2007
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This is Volume 4 of the book series of the Body & Soul mathematics education reform program, and presents a unified new approach to computational simulation of turbulent flow starting from the general basis of calculus and linearalgebra of Vol 1-3. T he book puts the Body & Soul computational finite element methodology in the form of General Galerkin (G2), up against the challenge of computing turbulent solutions of the inviscid Euler equations and theNavier-Stokes equations with small viscosity. The book shows that direct application of G2 without any turbulence or wall modeling, allows reliable computation on a PC of mean value quantities of turbulent flow such as drag and lift.The power of G2 is demonstrated by resolving several classical scientifi c paradoxes of fluid flow and by uncovering secrets of flying, sailing, racing and ball sports. The book presents new aspects on both mathematics and computationof turbulent flow, and challenges established approaches. The book is directed to a wide audie nce of computational mathematicians fluid dynamicists and scientists. The G2 solver is available as part the free software project FEniCS atwww.fenics.org. The book has a dedicated dynamic web page, including movies from a wide variety of simulations, at www.bodysoulmath.org. The book is focussed on incompressible flow, but opens to compressible flow continued in Vol 5 onthermodynamics. The authors are experts on computational mathematics and technology

Note:The control of complex systems is one of the most important aspects in dealing with systems exhibiting nonlinear behaviour or similar features that defy traditional control techniques. This specific subject is gradually becomingknown as cybernetical physics, borrowing methods from both theoretical physics and control engineering. This book is, perhaps, the first attempt to present a unified exposition of the subject and methodology of cybernetical physics aswell as solutions to some of its problems. Emphasis of the book is on the examination of fundamental limits on energy transformation by means of control procedures in both conservative and dissipative systems. A survey of applicationin physics includes the control of chaos, synchronisation of coup led oscillators, pendulum chains, reactions in physical chemistry and of quantum systems such as the dissociation of diatomic molecules. This book has been written havingresearchers from various backgrounds in physics, mathematics and engineering in mind and is thus also suitable as introduction to graduate students working on the understanding of a broad range of complex systems in the naturalsciences

Note:All phenomena in nature are characterized by motion this is an essential property of matter, having infinitely many aspects. Motion can be mechanical, physical, chemical or biological, leading to various sciences of nature,mechanics being one of them . Mechanics deals with the objective laws of mechanical motion of bodies, the simplest form of motion. In the study of a science of nature mathematics plays an important role. Mechanics is the first scienceof nature which was expressed in terms of mathema tics by considering various mathematical models, associated to phenomena of the surrounding nature. Thus, its development was influenced by the use of a strong mathematical tool on theother hand, we must observe that mechanics also influenced the introduc tion and the development of many mathematical notions. In this respect, the guideline of the present book is precisely the mathematical model of mechanics. Aspecial accent is put on the solving methodology as well as on the mathematical tools used vectors , tensors and notions of field theory. Continuous and discontinuous phenomena, various mechanical magnitudes are presented in a unitaryform by means of the theory of distributions. Some appendices give the book an autonomy with respect to other works, spe cial previous mathematical knowledge being not necessary. Some applications connected to important phenomena ofnature are presented, and this also gives one the possibility to solve problems of interest from the technical, engineering point of view. In th is form, the book becomes we dare say a unique outline of the literature in thefield the author wishes to present the most important aspects connected with the study of mechanical systems, mechanics being regarded as a science of nature, as well as its links to other sciences of nature. Implications in technicalsciences are not neglected. Audience: Librarians, and researchers interested in the fundamentals of mechanics
