Title: | The Stars of Galileo Galilei and the Universal Knowledge of Athanasius Kircher [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Roberto Buonanno |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | In this fascinating book, the author traces the careers, ideas, discoveries, and inventions of two renowned scientists, Athanasius Kircher and Galileo Galilei, one a Jesuit, the other a sincere man of faith whose relations withthe Jesuits deteriorate d badly. The Author documents Kirchers often intuitive work in many areas, including translating the hieroglyphs, developing sundials, and inventing the magic lantern, and explains how Kircher was a forerunnerof Darwin in suggesting that animal species ev olve. Galileos work on scales, telescopes, and sun spots is mapped and discussed, and care is taken to place his discoveries within their cultural environment. While Galileo is withoutdoubt the winner in the comparison with Kircher, the latter achieved ex traordinary insights by unconventional means. For all Galileos fine work, the author believes that scientists do need to regain the power of dreaming,vindicating Kirchners view |

Title: | XML and Web Technologies for Data Sciences with R [electronic resource] |
Author(s): |
Deborah Nolan Duncan Temple Lang |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | Web technologies are increasingly relevant to scientists working with data, for both accessing data and creating rich dynamic and interactive displays. The XML and JSON data formats are widely used in Web services, regular Webpages and JavaScript cod e, and visualization formats such as SVG and KML for Google Earth and Google Maps. In addition, scientists use HTTP and other network protocols to scrape data from Web pages, access REST and SOAP Web Services,and interact with NoSQL databases and text sea rch applications. This book provides a practical hands-on introduction to these technologies, including high-level functions the authors have developed for data scientists. It describesstrategies and approaches for extracting data from HTML, XML, and JSON formats and how to programmatically access data from the Web. Along with these general skills, the authors illustrate several applications that are relevant todata scientists, such as reading and writing spreadsheet documents both locally and via GoogleD ocs, creating interactive and dynamic visualizations, displaying spatial-temporal displays with Google Earth, and generating code fromdescriptions of data structures to read and write data. These topics demonstrate the rich possibilities and opportunities to do new things with these modern technologies. The book contains many examples and case-studies thatreaders can use directly and adapt to their own work. The authors have focused on the integration of these technologies with the R statistical computing environment. However, the ideas and skills presented here are more general,and statisticians who use other computing environments will also find them relevant to their work. Deborah Nolan is Professor of Statistics at University of California, Berkeley. Duncan Temple Lang is Associate Professor of Statisticsat University of California, Davis and has been a member of both the S and R development teams |

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 |

Title: | Fluctuations in Markov Processes [electronic resource] : Time Symmetry and Martingale Approximation |

Note: | Diffusive phenomena in statistical mechanics and in other fields arise from markovian modeling and their study requires sophisticated mathematical tools. In infinite dimensional situations, time symmetry properties can beexploited in order to make ma rtingale approximations, along the lines of the seminal work of Kipnis and Varadhan. The present volume contains the most advanced theories on the martingale approach to central limit theorems. Using thetime symmetry properties of the Markov processes, th e book develops the techniques that allow us to deal with infinite dimensional models that appear in statistical mechanics and engineering (interacting particle systems,homogenization in random environments, and diffusion in turbulent flows, to mention ju st a few applications). The first part contains a detailed exposition of the method, and can be used as a text for graduate courses. The secondconcerns application to exclusion processes, in which the duality methods are fully exploited. The third part is about the homogenization of diffusions in random fields, including passive tracers in turbulent flows (including thesuperdiffusive behavior). There are no other books in the mathematical literature that deal with this kind of approach to the problem of the central limit theorem. Hence, this volume meets the demand for a monograph on this powerfulapproach, now widely used in many areas of probability and mathematical physics. The book also covers the connections with and application to hydrodynamic limit s and homogenization theory, so besides probability researchers it willalso be of interest to mathematical physicists and analysts |

Note: | Dwarf galaxy research constitutes an extremely vibrant field of astrophysical research, with many long-standing questions still unsettled and new ones constantly arising. The intriguing diversity of the dwarf galaxy population,observed with advanced ground-based and space-borne observatories over a wide spectral window providing an unprecedented level of detail, poses new challenges for both observers and theoreticians. The aim of this symposium was to bringtogether these two groups to exchange ideas and new results on the many evolutionary aspects of and open issues concerning dwarf galaxies. The main topics addressed include: the birth of dwarf galaxies: theoretical concepts andobservable relics across wavelength and time the morphological, structu ral and chemical evolution of dwarf galaxies possible evolutionary connections between early-type and late-type dwarfs the star formation history ofdwarf galaxies and its dependence on intrinsic and environmental properties the origin and implications of starburst activity in dwarf galaxies the fate of dwarfish systems born out of tidally ejected matter in galaxycollisions |

Note: | Sunlight profoundly influences the Earth's atmosphere and biosphere. Nature fuels the evolution of all living things, their visual systems, and the manner in which they adapt, accommodate, and habituate. Sun luminance measurementsserve as data to cal culate typical changes in the daily, monthly, and annual variability characteristics of daylight. Climate-based sky luminance patterns are used as models in predicting daylighting calculation and computer programsapplied in architecture and building desig n. Historically, daylight science and daylighting technology has prioritized photometric methods of measurements, calculation, and graphical tools aimed at predicting or evaluating thedaylighting of architectural design alternatives. However, due to a hei ghtened awareness of general health and well-being, sunlight exposure and freedom from visual discomfort while undertaking visual tasks are now equally prioritized.Therefore, in order to assure optimal environmental quality, daylighting technology must be based on sound science.

Note: | World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards inrapidly growing countries. T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges |

Note: | The development of powerful computing environment and the geographical information system (GIS) in recent decades has thrust the analysis of geo-referenced disease incidence data into the mainstream of spatial epidemiology. Thisbook offers a modern p erspective on statistical methods for detecting disease clustering, an indispensable procedure to find a statistical evidence on aetiology of the disease under study. With increasing public health concerns aboutenvironmental risks, the need for sophistica ted methods for analyzing spatial health events is immediate. Furthermore, the research area of statistical methods for disease clustering now attracts a wide audience due to the perceivedneed to implement wide-ranging monitoring systems to detect possibl e health-related events such as the occurrence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pandemic influenza and bioterrorism As an invaluable resource for a widerange of audience including public health researchers, epidemiologists and biostatistia ns, this book features: A concise introduction to basic concepts of disease clustering/clusters A historical overview of methods for diseaseclustering A detailed treatment of selected methods useful for practical investigation of disease clustering Analys is and illustration of methods for a variety of real data sets Toshiro Tango, Ph.D., is the Director of Department ofTechnology Assessment and Biostatistics of National Institute of Public Health, Japan.

Note: | This book provides an introduction, suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, to two important aspects of molecular biology and biophysics: computer simulation and data analysis. It introduces tools toenable readers to lea rn and use fundamental methods for constructing quantitative models of biological mechanisms, both deterministic and with some elements of randomness, including complex reaction equilibria and kinetics, populationmodels, and regulation of metabolism and d evelopment to understand how concepts of probability can help in explaining important features of DNA sequences and to apply a useful set of statistical methods to analysis of experimentaldata from spectroscopic, genomic, and proteomic sources. These quan titative tools are implemented using the free, open source software program R. R provides an excellent environment for general numerical and statistical computing andgraphics, with capabilities similar to Matlab. Since R is increasingly used in bioinforma tics applications such as the BioConductor project, it can serve students as their basic quantitative, statistical, and graphics tool as theydevelop their careers |

Note: | This work examines viability theory and its applications to control theory and differential games. The emphasis is on the construction of feedbacks and dynamical systems by myopic optimization methods. Systems of first-orderpartial differential inclu sions, whose solutions are feedbacks, are constructed and investigated. Basic results are then extended to the case of fuzzy control problems, distributed control problems, and control systems with delays andmemory. Aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians, both pure and applied, this book offers specialists in control and nonlinear systems tools to take into account general state constraints. Viability theory also allowsresearchers in other disciplinesartificial intelligence, economics, gam e theory, theoretical biology, population genetics, cognitive sciencesto go beyond deterministic models by studying them in a dynamical or evolutionaryperspective in an uncertain environment. The book is a compendium of the state of knowledge about viabil ity...Mathematically, the book should be accessible to anyone who has had basic graduate courses in modern analysis and functionalanalysisThe concepts are defined and many proofs of the requisite results are reproduced here, making the present book essent ially self-contained. Bulletin of the AMS Because of the wide scope, the book is an ideal reference forpeople encountering problems related to viability theory in their researchIt gives a very thorough mathematical presentation.

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: | Evolution is a critical challenge for many areas of science, technology and development of society. The book reviews general evolutionary facts such as origin of life and evolution of the genome and clues to evolution throughsimple systems. Emerging areas of science such as systems biology and bio-complexity are founded on the idea that phenomena need to be understood in the context of highly interactive processes operating at different levels andon different scales. This is where physics meets compl exity in nature, and where we must begin to learn about complexity if we are to understand it. Similarly, there is an increasingly urgent need to understand and predict theevolutionary behavior of highly interacting man-made systems, in areas such as comm unications and transport, which permeate the modern world. The same applies to the evolution of human networks such as social, political and financialsystems, where technology has tended to vastly increase both the complexity and speed of interaction, whi ch is sometimes effectively instantaneous. The book contains reviews on such diverse areas as evolution experiments withmicroorganisms, the origin and evolution of viruses, evolutionary dynamics of genes and environment in cancer development, aging as an evolution-facilitating program, evolution of vision and evolution of financial markets |

Note: | Springer 2013 e-book collections |
Note: | This book is unique because of its focus on the practical implementation of the simulation and estimation methods presented. The book will be useful to practitioners and students with only a minimal mathematical backgroundbecause of the many R progra ms, and to more mathematically-educated practitioners. Many of the methods presented in the book have not been used much in practice because the lack of an implementation in a unified framework. This bookfills the gap. With the R code included in this boo k, a lot of useful methods become easy to use for practitioners and students. An R package called sde provides functions with easy interfaces ready to be used on empirical datafrom real life applications. Although it contains a wide range of results, the book has an introductory character and necessarily does not cover the whole spectrum of simulation and inference for general stochastic differentialequations. The book is organized into four chapters. The first one introduces the subject and presents seve ral classes of processes used in many fields of mathematics, computational biology, finance and the social sciences. The secondchapter is devoted to simulation schemes and covers new methods not available in other publications. The third one focuses on pa rametric estimation techniques. In particular, it includes exact likelihood inference, approximated andpseudo-likelihood methods, estimating functions, generalized method of moments, and other techniques. The last chapter contains miscellaneous topics lik e nonparametric estimation, model identification and change point estimation. Thereader who is not an expert in the R language will find a concise introduction to this environment focused on the subject of the book. A documentation page is available at th e end of the book for each R function presented in the book.Stefano M.

Note: | When you go to the pharmacy and fill a prescription, have you ever wondered if the dose of the medication is right for you? Can the dose be too low so that the drug will not work? Can the dose be too high that it may cause somepotential problem? How do people learn about dosing information? This book answers some of these questions. Dosing information on the drug label is based on discussion and agreement between the pharmaceutical manufacturer and the drugregulatory agency. A drug label is a high le vel summary of results obtained from many scientific experiments. Scientists with biological, chemical, medical, or statistical background working in the pharmaceutical industry designed andexecuted these experiments to obtain information to help understa nd the dosing information. This book introduces the drug development process, the design and analysis of clinical trials. Many of the discussions are based onapplications of statistical methods in the design and analysis of dose response studies. Although the book is prepared mainly for statisticians/biostatisticians, it also serves as a useful reference to a variety of professionalsworking for the pharmaceutical industry. The potential readers include pharmacokienticists, clinical scientists, clinical ph armacologists, pharmacists, project managers, pharmaceutical scientists, clinicians, programmers, datamanagers, regulatory specialists, and study report writers. This book is also a good reference for professionals working in a drug regulatory environment , for example, the FDA. Scientists and/or reviewers from both U.S. and foreigndrug regulatory agencies can benefit greatly from this book. In addition, statistical and medical professionals in academia may find this book helpful in understanding the drug development process and practical concerns in selectingdoses for a new drug.

Note: | This book develops methods for two key problems in the analysis of large-scale surveys: dealing with incomplete data and making inferences about sparsely represented subdomains. The presentation is committed to two particularmethods, multiple imputat ion for missing data and multivariate composition for small-area estimation. The methods are presented as developments of established approaches by attending to their deficiencies. Thus the change to moreefficient methods can be gradual, sensitive to the management priorities in large research organisations and multidisciplinary teams and to other reasons for inertia. The typical setting of each problem is addressed first, and then theconstituency of the applications is widened to reinforce the view that the general method is essential for modern survey analysis. The general tone of the book is not from theory to practice, but from current practice to betterpractice. The third part of the book, a single chapter, presents a method for efficient estimation under model uncertainty. It is inspired by the solution for small-area estimation and is an example of from good practice to bettertheory. A strength of the presentation is chapters of case studies, one for each problem. Whenever possible, turning to exam ples and illustrations is preferred to the theoretical argument. The book is suitable for graduate studentsand researchers who are acquainted with the fundamentals of sampling theory and have a good grounding in statistical computing, or in conjunction wi th an intensive period of learning and establishing one's own a modern computing andgraphical environment that would serve the reader for most of the analytical work in the future. While some analysts might regard data imperfections and deficiencies, such as nonresponse and limited sample size, as someone else'sfailure that bars effective and valid analysis, this book presents them as respectable analytical and inferential challenges, opportunitie |

After a very successful sky survey performed in the eighties by the IRAS satellite, the Infrared Space Observatory, in the nineties, brought spectacular advances in the understanding of the processes givingrise to powerful infrared emission by a gr eat variety of celestial sources. Outstanding results have been obtained on the bright comet Hale-Bopp, and in particular of its water spectrum, as well as on the formation, chemistry anddynamics of planetary objects in the solar system. Ideas on the earl y stages of stellar formation and on the stellar initial mass function have been clarified. ISO is the first facility in space able to provide a systematic diagnosisof the physical phenomena and the chemistry in the close environment of pre-main sequence stars, in the interstellar medium, and in the final stages of stellar life, using, among other indicators, molecular hydrogen, ubiquitouscrystalline silicates, water and ices. ISO has dramatically increased our ability to investigate the power production, excitation and fuelling mechanism of galaxies of every type, and has discovered a new very cold dust component ingalaxies. ISO has demonstrated that luminous infrared galaxies were brighter and much more numerous in the past, and that they played a domin ant role in shaping present day galaxies and in producing the cosmic infrared background |
