N.K Mandal
Manisha Pal
P Das
Date:2014
Publisher:New Delhi : Springer India : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book dwells mainly on the optimality aspects of mixture designs. As mixture models are a special case of regression models, a general discussion on regression designs has been presented, which includes topics like continuousdesigns, de la Garza p henomenon, Loewner order domination, Equivalence theorems for different optimality criteria and standard optimality results for single variable polynomial regression and multivariate linear and quadraticregression models. This is followed by a review of t he available literature on estimation of parameters in mixture models. Based on recent research findings, the volume also introduces optimal mixture designs for estimation of optimummixing proportions in different mixture models, which include Scheffs qua dratic model, Darroch-Waller model, log- contrast model, mixture-amount models, random coefficient models and multi-response model. Robust mixture designsand mixture designs in blocks have been also reviewed. Moreover, some applications of mixture designs in areas like agriculture, pharmaceutics and food and beverages have been presented. Familiarity with the basic concepts of designand analysis of experiments, along with the concept of optimality criteria are desirable prerequisites for a clear understan ding of the book. It is likely to be helpful to both theoreticians and practitioners working in the area ofmixture experiments

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chainnetwork analytics framewo rk is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food andfrom fashion apparel to technology. This Brie f provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability ofthe product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustratethe power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described alon g with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and forapplications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management sc ience, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broaderappreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced und ergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselveswith methodologies and supply chain network models and applications

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a state-of-the-art overview on non amplified DNA detection methods and provides chemists, biochemists, biotechnologists and material scientists with an introduction to these methods. In fact all these fields havededicated resources t o the problem of nucleic acid detection, each contributing with their own specific methods and concepts. This book will explain the basic principles of the different non amplified DNA detection methods available,highlighting their respective advantages an d limitations. The importance of non-amplified DNA sequencing technologies will be also discussed. Non-amplified DNA detection can be achieved by adopting different techniques. Such techniqueshave allowed the commercialization of innovative platforms for DNA detection that are expected to break into the DNA diagnostics market. The enhanced sensitivity required for the detection of non amplified genomic DNA has prompted newstrategies that can achieve ultrasensitivity by combining specific materials with sp ecific detection tools. Advanced materials play multiple roles in ultrasensitive detection. Optical and electrochemical detection tools are among themost widely investigated to analyze non amplified nucleic acids. Biosensors based on piezoelectric crystal have been also used to detect unamplified genomic DNA. The main scientific topics related to DNA diagnostics are discussed by anoutstanding set of authors with proven experience in the field

Title:Mathematical Modeling for Complex Fluids and Flows [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michel O Deville
Thomas B Gatski
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:Colloids are submicron particles that are ubiquitous in nature (milk, clay, blood) and industrial products (paints, drilling fluids, food). It has been known for a long time that adding salt or polymer influences thecharacteristics of colloidal suspe nsions. Think of the Egyptians who engineered ink by adding gum Arabic to soot particles a few thousand years ago. Unknowingly, they were taking advantage of the anchoring of the polysaccharides ontothe colloids to provide the stabilization of the soot pa rticles that eventually provided an ink to write on papyrus. The effect of charges and polymers attached to the surface of colloidal particles on their stability has beenunderstood and studied extensively in the last century. But the more elusive, albeit ubiquitous, effects of the addition of free polymers and small colloids as depletants to colloidal dispersions have become in focus recently. Inrecent decades it has become clear that adding such depletants allows one to tune the interactions between the colloids and in this way control the stability, structure and rheological properties of colloidal dispersions. This bookoffers a concise introduction to the fundamentals of depletion effects and their influence on the phase behavior of colloidal dispersio ns. These fundamental principles promote insight and the intuitive sense needed to isolate issuesrelated to depletion effects in technological problems and design critical experiments. In an introductory chapter, the authors provide a historical perspecti ve and the applications of depletion effects not only in colloid science butalso in biology, medicine and technology. In the subsequent chapter they address the basics of depletion interactions, including the effects of anisotropic depletants. The next ch apter covers the basics of phase behavior in colloidaldispersions, followed by extensions towards mixtures of spherical colloids with polymers or small colloids inducing depletion forces.

Note:Terahertz (THz) and Mid-Infrared (MIR) radiation (TERA-MIR) can be transmitted through nearly any material without causing biological harm. Novel and rapid methods of detection can be created with devices operation in thesespectral ranges allowing sc anning for weapons, detecting hidden explosives (including plastic landmines), controlling the quality of food and a host of other exciting applications. This book focuses on mathematical and physicalaspects of the field, on unifying these two spectral do mains (THz and MIR) with regard to common sources, detectors, materials and applications, and on key interdisciplinary topics. The main THz and MIR source is the quantum cascadelaser (QCL). Thus significant attention is paid to the challenge of turning th is advanced technology into affordable commercial devices so as to exploit its enormous potential. However other alternatives to THz QCLs are also presented,e.g. sub-terahertz imaging from avalanching GaAs bipolar transistors, Josephson junctions as THz s ources, semiconductor materials for pulsed THz sources, superconducting THz electronics with Josephson vortices. In summary thisbook delivers a global picture of the state of the art in TERA-MIR generation, detection and applications

Note:Quantum mechanics is one of mankind's most remarkable intellectual achievements. Stunningly successful and elegant, it challenges our deepest intuitions about the world. In this book, seventeen physicists and philosophers, alldeeply concerned with un derstanding quantum mechanics, reply to Schlosshauer's penetrating questions about the central issues. They grant us an intimate look at their radically different ways of making sense of the theory'sstrangeness. What is quantum mechanics about? What is it telling us about nature? Can quantum information or new experiments help lift the fog? And where are we headed next? Everyone interested in the contemporary but oftenlongstanding conundrums of quantum theory, whether lay reader or expert, will find much food for thought in these pages. A wealth of personal reflections and anecdotes guarantee an engaging read.

Note:With the goal of establishing a version for partial differential equations (PDEs) of the AubryMather theory of monotone twist maps, Moser and then Bangert studied solutions of their model equations that possessed certainminimality and monotonicity pr operties. This monograph presents extensions of the MoserBangert approach that include solutions of a family of nonlinear elliptic PDEs onRn and an AllenCahn PDE model of phase transitions. Afterrecalling the relevant MoserBangert results, Extensions of M oserBangert Theory pursues the rich structure of the set of solutions of a simpler model case, expanding upon the studies of Moser and Bangert to include solutions thatmerely have local minimality properties. Subsequent chapters build upon the introductor y results, making the monograph self contained. Part I introduces a variational approach involving a renormalized functional to characterize thebasic heteroclinic solutions obtained by Bangert. Following that, Parts II and III employ these basic solutions together with constrained minimization methods to construct multitransition heteroclinic and homoclinic solutions onRTn-1and R2Tn-2, respectively, as local minima of the renormalized functional. The work is intended for mathematicians who specialize in p artial differential equations and may also be used as a text for a graduate topics coursein PDEs

Title:A Lost Mathematician, Takeo Nakasawa [electronic resource] The Forgotten Father of Matroid Theory
Author(s): Hirokazu Nishimura
Susumu Kuroda
Date:2009
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Matroid theory was invented in the middle of the 1930s by two mathematicians independently, namely, Hassler Whitney in the USA and Takeo Nakasawa in Japan. Whitney became famous, but Nakasawa remained anonymous until two decadesago. He left only four papers to the mathematical community, all of them written in the middle of the 1930s. It was a bad time to have lived in a country that had become as eccentric as possible. Just as Nazism became more and moreflamboyant in Europe in the 1930s, Japan becam e more and more esoteric and fanatical in the same time period. This book explains the little that is known about Nakasawas personal life in a Japan that had, among other failures, lostcontrol over its military. We do not know what forces caused him to be discharged from the Tokyo University of Arts and Sciences. His work was considered brilliant, his papers superb, if somewhat unconventional and mysterious innotation. We do know that, in the latter half of the 1930s, forced to give up his mathematical ca reer, he chose to live as a bureaucrat in Manchuria, at that time a puppet state of Japan. He died in 1946 at Khavarovsk, at the age of33, after one year of forced labor in Siberian and other USSR camps, without sufficient food or shelter to protect his h ealth. This book contains his four papers in German and their English translations as well as some extendedcommentary on the history of Japan during those years. The book also contains 14 photos of him or his family. Although the veil of mystery surroundi ng Nakasawas life has only been partially lifted, the work presented in this bookspeaks eloquently of a tragic loss to the mathematical community

Title:Maximum Penalized Likelihood Estimation [electronic resource] : Volume II: Regression

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 is the second volume of a text on the theory and practice of maximum penalized likelihood estimation. It is intended for graduate students in statistics, operations research and applied mathematics, as well as for researchersand practitioners in the field. The present volume deals with nonparametric regression. The emphasis in this volume is on smoothing splines of arbitrary order, but other estimators (kernels, local and global polynomials) pass review aswell. Smoothing splines and local polyno mials are studied in the context of reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. The connection between smoothing splines and reproducing kernels is of course well-known. The new twist is that letting theinnerproduct depend on the smoothing parameter opens up new p ossibilities. It leads to asymptotically equivalent reproducing kernel estimators (without qualifications), and thence, via uniform error bounds for kernel estimators, touniform error bounds for smoothing splines and via strong approximations, to confiden ce bands for the unknown regression function. The reason for studying smoothing splines of arbitrary order is that one wants to use them for dataanalysis. Regarding the actual computation, the usual scheme based on spline interpolation is useful for cubic smoothing splines only. For splines of arbitrary order, the Kalman filter is the most important method, the intricacies ofwhich are explained in full. The authors also discuss simulation results for smoothing splines and local and global polynomials for a variety of test problems as well as results on confidence bands for the unknown regression functionbased on undersmoothed quintic smoothing splines with remarkably good coverage probabilities. P.P.B. Eggermont and V.N. LaRiccia are with the Statistics P rogram of the Department of Food and Resource Economics in the College ofAgriculture and Natural Resources at the University of Delaware, and the authors of Maximum Penalized Likelihood Estimation: Volu

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:We all know that Earths population is growing at an alarming rate, and vital resources are becoming scarce. There simply isnt enough space to grow the food the bulging human populations will need in the future. An energycrisis is also upon us. What h appens when the oil runs out or becomes too costly to support us in the lifestyles to which weve become accustomed? What do we do? There are no easy solutions. Planned population growth would certainlybe a possible solution, but there are probably already too many mouths too feed, and few nations would be willing to pass or enforce laws limiting their countrys birth rate. Some scientists have suggested the answer lies inhumankinds spacefaring nature and fantastic engineering capabilities. We know that the re are other terrestrial bodies in our Solar System that share some features with Earth. Can they be made habitable, or at least be used to growfood or supply energy to Earths expanding populations? What would it take? Which of those bodies are our best h ope? Can we create an atmosphere where there is none or change a poisonous atmosphere to one we can breathe? These andother questions concerning modern-day realities and the future possibilities of terraformingthe science of making of new worlds (even ext rasolar ones) habitable for humansare tackled in this engrossing and revealing study byMartin Beech

This evolution directly concerns statisticians, who have to propose new methodologies while taking into account such high-dimensional data (e.g.continuous processes, functional data, etc.). The num erous applications (micro-arrays, paleo- ecological data, radar waveforms, spectrometric curves, speech recognition, continuous time series, 3-D images, etc.) in various fields(biology, econometrics, environmetrics, the food industry, medical sciences, pa per industry, etc.) make researching this statistical topic very worthwhile. This book gathers important contributions on the functional and operatorialstatistics fields

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistical Monitoring of Clinical Trials: Fundamentals for Investigators introduces the investigator and statistician to monitoring procedures in clinical research. Clearly presenting the necessary background with limited use ofmathematics, this boo k increases the knowledge, experience, and intuition of investigations in the use of these important procedures now required by the many clinical research efforts. The author provides motivated clinicalinvestigators the background, correct use, and interp retation of these monitoring procedures at an elementary statistical level. He defines terms commonly used such as group sequential procedures and stochastic curtailment innon-mathematical language and discusses the commonly used procedures of Pocock, OBr ienFleming, and LanDeMets. He discusses the notions of conditional power, monitoring for safety and futility, and monitoring multiple endpointsin the study. The use of monitoring clinical trials is introduced in the context of the evolution of clinical re search and one chapter is devoted to the more recent Bayesian procedures. Dr. Lemuel A. Moy, M.D., Ph.D. is a physicianand a biostatistician at the University of Texas School of Public Health. He is a diplomat of the National Board of Medical Examiners an d is currently Professor of Biostatistics at the University of Texas School of Public Health inHouston where he holds a full time faculty position. Dr. Moy has carried out cardiovascular research for twenty years and continues to be involved in the design , execution and analysis of clinical trials, both reporting to andserving on many Data Monitoring Committees. He has served in several clinical trials sponsored by both the U.S. government and private industry. In addition, Dr. Moy has served as statistic ian/epidemiologist for six years on both theCardiovascular and Renal Drug Advisory Committee to the Food and Drug Administration and the Pharmacy Sciences Advisory Committee to the FDA.

Title:Life As a Matter of Fat [electronic resource] : The Emerging Science of Lipidomics

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:LIFE - as a Matter of Fat Lipidomics is the science of the fats called lipids. Lipids are as important for life as proteins, sugars, and genes. The present book gives a multi-disciplinary perspective on the physics of life and theparticular role play ed by lipids and the lipid-bilayer component of cell membranes. The book is aimed at undergraduate students and young research workers within physics, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, nutrition, as wellas pharmaceutical and biomedical sciences. The emphasis is on the physical properties of lipid membranes seen as soft and molecularly structured interfaces. By combining and synthesizing insights obtained from a variety of recentstudies, an attempt is made to clarify what membrane structure is an d how it can be quantitatively described. Furthermore, it is shown how biological function mediated by membranes is controlled by lipid membrane structure andorganization on length scales ranging from the size of the individual molecule, across molecular assemblies of proteins and lipid domains in the range of nanometers, to the size of whole cells. Applications of lipids in nano-technologyand biomedicine are also described. The Emerging Science of Lipidomics We have just witnessed a scientific revolution at the end of the 20th century that took us through the genomics era with a focus on sequencing genes and mappinggene products. We are now in the middle of the proteomics era where the multitude of proteins that are encoded in the genes are identified an d their functions are unveiled. In front of us we have a new era recognizing the role oflipids. The science of lipidomics is emerging. Lipidomics involves a quantitative experimental and theoretical study of, e.g. lipid and membrane self-assembly, lipid-p rotein interactions, lipid-gene interactions, and the biophysicalproperties of lipid structure, function, and dynamics
