Title:Computational Experiment Approach to Advanced Secondary Mathematics Curriculum [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sergei Abramovich
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book promotes the experimental mathematics approach in the context of secondary mathematics curriculum by exploring mathematical models depending on parameters that were typically considered advanced in the pre-digitaleducation era. This approac h, by drawing on the power of computers to perform numerical computations and graphical constructions, stimulates formal learning of mathematics through making sense of a computational experiment. It allowsone (in the spirit of Freudenthal) to bridge seri ous mathematical content and contemporary teaching practice. In other words, the notion of teaching experiment can be extended to include a true mathematical experiment. When usedappropriately, the approach creates conditions for collateral learning (in t he spirit of Dewey) to occur including the development of skills important for engineering applications of mathematics. In the context of a mathematics teachereducation program, this book addresses a call for the preparation of teachers capable of utilizi ng modern technology tools for the modeling-based teaching of mathematics with a focus on methods conducive to the improvement of the wholeSTEM education at the secondary level. By the same token, using the books pedagogy and its mathematical content in a pre-college classroom can assist teachers in introducing students to the ideas that develop the foundation ofengineering profession

Title:Mathematical Models for Eddy Currents and Magnetostatics [electronic resource] : With Selected Applications
Author(s): Rachid Touzani
Jacques Rappaz
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph addresses fundamental aspects of mathematical modeling and numerical solution methods of electromagnetic problems involving low frequencies, i.e. magnetostatic and eddy current problems which are rarely presented inthe applied mathemat ics literature. In the first part, the authors introduce the mathematical models in a realistic context in view of their use for industrial applications. Several geometric configurations of electric conductorsleading to different mathematical models are c arefully derived and analyzed, and numerical methods for the solution of the obtained problems are given. Related issues such as convergence of the approximations and error estimates arediscussed. The second part of the monograph presents various coupled problems that involve eddy current or magnetostatic problems, in particular magneto-hydrodynamic problems and magnetic shaping problems concerning the melt flow ofelectrically conducting metals, induction heating processes, inductively coupled plasmas and ferromagnetic screening modeling. The presentation of each model comes with numerical illustration from industrial applications

Title:A Primer on Scientific Programming with Python [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hans Petter Langtangen
Date:2014
Edition:4th ed. 2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The book serves as a first introduction to computer programming of scientific applications, using the high-level Python language. The exposition is example and problem-oriented, where the applications are taken from mathematics,numerical calculus, st atistics, physics, biology and finance. The book teaches Matlab-style and procedural programming as well as object-oriented programming. High school mathematics is a required background and it is advantageousto study classical and numerical one-variable c alculus in parallel with reading this book. Besides learning how to program computers, the reader will also learn how to solve mathematical problems, arising in various branches of scienceand engineering, with the aid of numerical methods and programming. By blending programming, mathematics and scientific applications, the book lays a solid foundation for practicing computational science. From the reviews: Langtangen does an excellent job of introducing programming as a set of skills in problem solving. He guides the reader into thinking properly about producing program logic and data structures for modeling real-world problems using objectsand functions and embracing the object-oriented paradigm. Summing Up: Highly recommended. F. H. Wild III, Choice, Vol. 47 (8), April 2010 Those of us who have learned scientific programming in Python on the streets could be alittle jealous of students who have the opportunity to take a course out of Langtangens Primer. John D. Cook, The Mathematical Association of Am erica, September 2011 This book goes through Python in particular, and programmingin general, via tasks that scientists will likely perform. It contains valuable informationfor students new to scientific computing and would be the perfect bridge between a n introduction to programming and an advanced course onnumerical methods or computational science.

Note:This book features 13 papers presented at the Fifth International Symposium on Recurrence Plots, held August 2013 in Chicago, IL. It examines recent applications and developments in recurrence plots and recurrence quantifi cationanalysis (RQA) with s pecial emphasis on biological and cognitive systems and the analysis of coupled systems using cross-recurrence methods. Readers will discover new applications and insights into a range of systems provided byrecurrence plot analysis and new theoretical and mathematical developments in recurrence plots. Recurrence plot based analysis is a powerful tool that operates on real-world complex systems that are nonlinear, non-stationary, noisy, ofany statistical distribution, free of any particular model type, and not particularly long. Quantitative analyses promote the detection of system state changes, synchronized dynamical regimes, or classifi cation of system states. Th ebook will be of interest to an interdisciplinary audience of recurrence plot users and re searchers interested in time series analysis of complex systems in general

Title:Multi-Band Effective Mass Approximations [electronic resource] : Advanced Mathematical Models and Numerical Techniques
Author(s): Matthias Ehrhardt
Thomas Koprucki
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book addresses several mathematical models from the most relevant class of kp-Schrdinger systems. Both mathematical models and state-of-the-art numerical methods for adequately solving the arising systems of differentialequations are presented. The operational principle of modern semiconductor nano structures, such as quantum wells, quantum wires or quantum dots, relies on quantum mechanical effects. The goal of numerical simulations using quantummechanical models in the development of semicondu ctor nano structures is threefold: First they are needed for a deeper understanding of experimental data and of the operational principle. Secondly, they allow us to predict and optimizein advance the qualitative and quantitative properties of new devices in order to minimize the number of prototypes needed. Semiconductor nano structures are embedded as an active region in semiconductor devices. Thirdly and finally,the results of quantum mechanical simulations of semiconductor nano structures can be used with upscaling methods to deliver parameters needed in semi-classical models for semiconductor devices, such as quantum well lasers. This bookcovers in detail all these three aspects using a variety of illustrative examples. Readers will gain detailed ins ights into the status of the multiband effective mass method for semiconductor nano structures. Both users of the kpmethod as well as advanced researchers who want to advance the kp method further will find helpful information on how to best work with thi s method and use it as a tool for characterizing the physical properties of semiconductor nanostructures. The book is primarily intended for graduate and Ph.D. students in applied mathematics, mathematical physics and theoretical physics, as well as all t hose working in quantum mechanical research or the semiconductor /opto-electronic industry who are interested in new mathematical aspects

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:The concept of 'shape' is at the heart of image processing and computer vision, yet researchers still have some way to go to replicate the human brain's ability to extrapolate meaning from the most basic of outlines. This volumereflects the advances of the last decade, which have also opened up tough new challenges in image processing. Today's applications require flexible models as well as efficient, mathematically justified algorithms that allow dataprocessing within an acceptable timeframe. Examin ing important topics in continuous-scale and discrete modeling, as well as in modern algorithms, the book is the product of a key seminar focused on innovations in the field. It is athorough introduction to the latest technology, especially given the tuto rial style of a number of chapters. It also succeeds in identifying promising avenues for future research. The topics covered include mathematical morphology,skeletonization, statistical shape modeling, continuous-scale shape models such as partial differ ential equations and the theory of discrete shape descriptors. Some authors highlight new areas of enquiry such as partite skeletons,multi-component shapes, deformable shape models, and the use of distance fields. Combining the latest theoretical analysis with cutting-edge applications, this book will attract both academics and engineers

Note:The first derivative of a particle coordinate means its velocity, the second means its acceleration, but what does a fractional order derivative mean? Where does it come from, how does it work, where does it lead to? Thetwo-volume book written on hig h didactic level answers these questions. Fractional Derivatives for Physicists and Engineers The first volume contains a clear introduction into such a modern branch of analysis as the fractionalcalculus. The second develops a wide panorama of applicatio ns of the fractional calculus to various physical problems. This book recovers new perspectives in front of the reader dealing with turbulence and semiconductors, plasma andthermodynamics, mechanics and quantum optics, nanophysics and astrophysics. The bo ok is addressed to students, engineers and physicists, specialists in theory of probability and statistics, in mathematical modeling and numericalsimulations, to everybody who doesn't wish to stay apart from the new mathematical methods becoming more and more popular. Prof. Vladimir V. UCHAIKIN is a known Russian scientist and pedagogue, a Honored Worker of Russian High School,a member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He is the author of about three hundreds articles and more than a dozen books (mostly in Russian) in Cosmic ray physics, Mathematical physics, Levy stable statistics, Monte Carlomethods with applications to anomalous processes in complex systems of various levels: from quantum dots to the Milky Way galaxy

Note:This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlyingmathematical principl es, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functionalanalysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessaryconcepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Thro ughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numericalsoftware MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox. We have also had the ambition to cover some of the most important applications of finite elements and the basic finite element methods developed for those applications, including diffusion andtransport phenomena, solid and fluid mechanics, and also electromagnetics.

Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specializedmonographs, accessible to a b road readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. This book is targeted at students of physics and traffic engineeringand, more generally, also at students and professi onals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It also offers material for project work in programming and simulation at college and university level. The mainpart, after presenting different categories of traffic data, is devoted t o a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopicmany-particle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver.Focus chapters on traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation present these topics in a novel and systematic way.Finally, thetheoretical framework is shown at work in selected applications such as traffic-state and travel-time estimation, intelligent transpor tation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physics-based model for fuelconsumption and emissions

Note:From the reviews of the previous editions .... The book is a first class textbook and seems to be indispensable for everybody who has to teach combinatorial optimization. It is very helpful for students, teachers, andresearchers in this area. The aut hor finds a striking synthesis of nice and interesting mathematical results and practical applications. ... the author pays much attention to the inclusion of well-chosen exercises. The reader does notremain helpless solutions or at least hints are given in the appendix. Except for some small basic mathematical and algorithmic knowledge the book is self-contained. ... K.Engel, Mathematical Reviews 2002 The substantial developmenteffort of this text, involving multiple editions and trailing in the context of various workshops, university courses and seminar series, clearly shows through in this new edition with its clear writing, good organisation,comprehensive coverage of essential theory, and well-chosen applications. The proofs of important results and the representation of key algorithms in a Pascal-like notation allow this book to be used in a high-level undergraduate orlow-level graduate course on graph theory, combinatorial optimization or computer science algorithms. The well-worked solutions to ex ercises are a real bonus for self study by students. The book is highly recommended. P .B. Gibbons,Zentralblatt fr Mathematik2005 Once again, the new edition has been thoroughly revised. In particular, some further material has been added: more on NP-comp leteness (especially on dominating sets), a section on the Gallai-Edmondsstructure theory for matchings, and about a dozen additional exercises as always, with solutions. Moreover, the section on the 1-factor theorem has been completely rewritten: it now presents a short direct proof for the moregeneral Berge-Tutte formula. Several recent research developments are discussed and quite a few references have been added

Note:The author defines Geometric Algebra Computing as the geometrically intuitive development of algorithms using geometric algebra with a focus on their efficient implementation, and the goal of this book is to lay thefoundations for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a powerful, intuitive mathematical language for engineering applications in academia and industry. The related technology is driven by the invention of conformal geometricalgebra as a 5D extension of the 4D projective geometric alg ebra and by the recent progress in parallel processing, and with the specific conformal geometric algebra there is a growing community in recent years applying geometricalgebra to applications in computer vision, computer graphics, and robotics. This book is organized into three parts: in Part I the author focuses on the mathematical foundations in Part II he explains the interactive handling ofgeometric algebra and in Part III he deals with computing technology for high-performance implementations based on geometric algebra as a domain-specific language in standard programming languages such as C++ and OpenCL. The book iswritten in a tutorial style and readers should gain experience with the associated freely available software packages and applications. The book is suitable for students, engineers, and researchers in computer science, computationalengineering, and mathematics

Note:In the recent decade, there has been a growing interest in the numerical treatment of high-dimensional problems. It is well known that classical numerical discretization schemes fail in more than three or four dimensions due tothe curse of dimensiona lity. The technique of sparse grids helps overcome this problem to some extent under suitable regularity assumptions. This discretization approach is obtained from a multi-scale basis by a tensor productconstruction and subsequent truncation of the result ing multiresolution series expansion. This volume of LNCSE is a collection of the papers from the proceedings of the workshop on sparse grids and its applications held in Bonn in May2011. The selected articles present recent advances in the mathematical u nderstanding and analysis of sparse grid discretization. Aspects arising from applications are given particular attention.

Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Note:The sheer computing power of modern information technology is changing the face of research not just in science, technology and mathematics, but in humanities and cultural studies too. Recent decades have seen a major shift bothin attitudes and deplo yment of computers, which are now vital and highly effective tools in disciplines where they were once viewed as elaborate typewriters. This revealing volume details the vast array of computing applications thatresearchers in the humanities now have recou rse to, including the dissemination of scholarly information through virtual co-laboratories, data retrieval, and the modeling of complex processes that contribute to our natural andcultural heritage. One key area covered in this book is the versatility o f computers in presenting images and graphics, which is transforming the analysis of data sets and archaeological reconstructions alike. The papers publishedhere are grouped into three broad categories that cover mathematical and computational methods, r esearch developments in information systems, and a detailed portrayal of ongoing work on documenting, restoring and presenting culturalmonuments including the temples in Pompeii and the Banteay Chhmar temples of the Angkorian period in present-day Cambodi a. Originally presented at a research workshop in Heidelberg, Germany, they reflect the rapidly developing identityof computational humanities as an interdisciplinary field in its own right, as well as demonstrating the breadth of perspectives in this you ng and vibrant research area

Note:Many mathematical models of physical, biological and social systems involve partial differential equations (PDEs). The desire to understand and influence these systems naturally leads to considering problems of control andoptimization. This book pres ents important topics in the areas of control of PDEs and of PDE-constrained optimization, covering the full spectrum from analysis to numerical realization and applications. Leading scientists addresscurrent topics such as non-smooth optimization, Hamilt onJacobiBellmann equations, issues in optimization and control of stochastic partial differential equations, reduced-order models and domain decomposition, discretizationerror estimates for optimal control problems, and control of quantum-dynamical system s. These contributions originate from the International Workshop on Control and Optimization of PDEs in Mariatrost in October 2011. This book isan excellent resource for students and researchers in control or optimization of differential equations. Reader s interested in theory or in numerical algorithms will find this book equally useful

Note:This book primarily concerns quasilinear and semilinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations, inequalities, and systems. The exposition leads the reader through the general theory based on abstract (pseudo-)monotone or accretive oper ators as fast as possible towards the analysis of concrete differential equations, which have specific applications in continuum (thermo-) mechanics of solids and fluids, electrically (semi-) conductive media,modelling of biological systems, or in mechani cal engineering. Selected parts aremainly an introduction into the subject while some others form an advanced textbook. Thesecond edition simplifies and extends the exposition atparticular spots and augments the applications especially towards thermally coupled systems, magnetism, and more. The intended audience is graduate and PhD students as well as researchers in the theory of partial differential equationsor in mathematical modelling of distributed parameter systems. ------ The monograph contains a w ealth of material in both the abstract theory of steady-state or evolution equations of monotone and accretive type and concreteapplications to nonlinear partial differential equations from mathematical modeling. The organization of the material is well d one, and the presentation, although concise, is clear, elegant and rigorous. () this book is a notableaddition to the existing literature. Also, it certainly will prove useful to engineers, physicists, biologists and other scientists interested in the ana lysis of (...) nonlinear differential models of the real world.

Note:This is the first comprehensive monograph on the mathematical theory of the solitaire game The Tower of Hanoi which was invented in the 19th century by the French number theorist douard Lucas. The book comprises a surveyof the historical development from the games predecessors up to recent research in mathematics and applications in computer science and psychology. Apart from long-standing myths it contains a thorough, largely self-containedpresentation of the essential mathematical facts with comple te proofs, including also unpublished material. The main objects of research today are the so-called Hanoi graphs and the related Sierpiski graphs. Acknowledging the greatpopularity of the topic in computer science, algorithms and their correctness proofs form an essential part of the book. In view of the most important practical applications of the Tower of Hanoi and its variants, namely in physics,network theory, and cognitive (neuro)psychology, other related structures and puzzles like, e.g., the Tower of London, are addressed. Numerous captivating integer sequences arise along the way, but also many open questions imposethemselves. Central among these is the famed Frame-Stewart conjecture. Despite many attempts to decide it and large-scale numerical e xperiments supporting its truth, it remains unsettled after more than 70 years and thus demonstratesthe timeliness of the topic. Enriched with elaborate illustrations, connections to other puzzles and challenges for the reader in the form of (solved) exer cises as well as problems for further exploration, this book is enjoyablereading for students, educators, game enthusiasts and researchers alike

Title:Lectures on Sphere Arrangements the Discrete Geometric Side [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kroly Bezdek
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 monograph gives a short introduction to parts of modern discrete geometry, in addition to leading the reader to the frontiers of geometric research on sphere arrangements. The readership is aimed at advanced undergraduate andearly graduate stude nts, as well as interested researchers. It contains 30 open research problems ideal for graduate students and researchers in mathematics and computer science. Additionally, this book may be considered ideal for aone-semester advanced undergraduate or grad uate level course. The core of this book is based on three lectures given by the author at the Fields Institute during the thematic program on Discrete Geometry and Applications andcontains four basic topics. The first two deal with active areas that hav e been outstanding from the birth of discrete geometry, namely dense sphere packings and tilings. Sphere packings and tilings have a very strong connection tonumber theory, coding, groups, and mathematical programming. Extending the tradition of studying packings of spheres is the investigation of the monotonicity of volume under contractions of arbitrary arrangements of spheres. The thirdmajor topic can be found under the sections on ball-polyhedra that study the possibility of extending the theory of co nvex polytopes to the family of intersections of congruent balls. This section of the text is connected in many waysto the above-mentioned major topics as well as to some other important research areas such as that on coverings by planks (with close ties to geometric analysis). The fourth basic topic is discussed under covering balls by cylinders.

Title:Brownian Dynamics at Boundaries and Interfaces [electronic resource] : In Physics, Chemistry, and Biology

Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Brownian dynamics serve as mathematical models for the diffusive motion of microscopic particles of various shapes in gaseous, liquid, or solid environments. The renewed interest in Brownian dynamics is due primarily to their keyrole in molecular and cellular biophysics: diffusion of ions and molecules is the driver of all life. Brownian dynamics simulations are the numerical realizations of stochastic differential equations that model the functions ofbiological micro devices such as protein ionic ch annels of biological membranes, cardiac myocytes, neuronal synapses, and many more. Stochastic differential equations are ubiquitous models in computational physics, chemistry,biophysics, computer science, communications theory, mathematical finance theor y, and many other disciplines. Brownian dynamics simulations of the random motion of particles, be it molecules or stock prices, give rise to mathematicalproblems that neither the kinetic theory of Maxwell and Boltzmann, nor Einsteins and Langevins theori es of Brownian motion could predict. This book takes the readers on a journey that starts with the rigorous definition ofmathematical Brownian motion, and ends with the explicit solution of a series of complex problems that have immediate applications. It is aimed at applied mathematicians, physicists, theoretical chemists, and physiologists who areinterested in modeling, analysis, and simulation of micro devices of microbiology. The book contains exercises and worked out examples throughout

Title:Surrogate-Based Modeling and Optimization [electronic resource] : Applications in Engineering

Note:Contemporary engineering design is heavily based on computer simulations. Accurate, high-fidelity simulations are used not only for design verification but, even more importantly, to adjust parameters of the system to have it meetgiven performance re quirements. Unfortunately, accurate simulations are often computationally very expensive with evaluation times as long as hours or even days per design, making design automation using conventional methodsimpractical. These and other problems can be allevi ated by the development and employment of so-called surrogates that reliably represent the expensive, simulation-based model of the system or device of interest but they are much morereasonable and analytically tractable. This book is about surrogate-bas ed modeling and optimization techniques, and their applications for solving difficult and computationally expensive engineering design problems. It beginsbypresentingthe basic concepts and formulations of the surrogate-based modeling and optimization para digm and thendiscusses relevant modeling techniques, optimization algorithms and design procedures, as well as state-of-the-artdevelopments. The chapters are self-contained with basic concepts and formulations along with applications and examples. The boo k will be useful toresearchers in engineering and mathematics, in particular those who employcomputationally heavy simulations in their design work

Note:Rcpp is the glue that binds the power and versatility of R with the speed and efficiency of C++. With Rcpp, the transfer of data between R and C++ is nearly seamless, and high-performance statistical computing is finallyaccessible to most R users. Rc pp should be part of every statistician's toolbox. Michael Braun, MIT Sloan School of Management Seamless R and C++ Integration with Rcpp is simply a wonderful book. For anyone who uses C/C++and R, it is an indispensable resource. The writing is outstandi ng. A huge bonus is the section on applications. This section covers the matrix packages Armadillo and Eigen and the GNU Scientific Library as well as RInside whichenables you to use R inside C++. These applications are what most of us need to know to rea lly do scientific programming with R and C++. I love this book. Robert McCulloch, University of Chicago Booth School of Business Rcpp isnow considered an essential package for anybody doing serious computational research using R. Dirk's book is an excelle nt companion and takes the reader from a gentle introduction to more advanced applications via numerous examples andefficiency enhancing gems. The book is packed with all you might have ever wanted to know about Rcpp, its cousins (RcppArmadillo, RcppEigen etc.), modules, package development and sugar. Overall, this book is a must-have on yourshelf. Sanjog Misra, UCLA Anderson School of Management The Rcpp package represents a major leap forward for scientific computations with R. With very few lines of C+ + code, one has R's data structures readily at hand for furthercomputations in C++. Hence, high-level numerical programming can be made in C++ almost as easily as in R, but often with a substantial speed gain. Dirk is a crucial person in these development s, and his book takes the reader from thefirst fragile steps on to using the full Rcpp machinery. A very recommended book!
