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.

Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book brings theories in nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes, irreversible thermodynamics, physical chemistry, and biochemistry together in an introductory but formal and comprehensive manner. Coupled with examples, thetheories are developed stepwise, starting with the simplest concepts and building upon them into a more general framework. Furthermore, each new mathematical derivation is immediately applied to one or more biological systems.

Title:Elliptic Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource] : Volume 2: Reaction-Diffusion Equations
Author(s): Vitaly Volpert
Date:2014
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:If we had to formulate in one sentence what this book is about it might be How partial differential equations can help to understand heat explosion, tumor growth or evolution of biological species. These and many otherapplications are described by re action-diffusion equations. The theory of reaction-diffusion equations appeared in the first half of the last century. In the present time, it is widely used in population dynamics, chemical physics,biomedical modelling. The purpose of this book is to pre sent the mathematical theory of reaction-diffusion equations in the context of their numerous applications. We will go from the general mathematical theory to specific equationsand then to their applications. Mathematical anaylsis of reaction-diffusion eq uations will be based on the theory of Fredholm operators presented in the first volume. Existence, stability and bifurcations of solutions will be studiedfor bounded domains and in the case of travelling waves. The classical theory of reaction-diffusion equations and new topics such as nonlocal equations and multi-scale models in biology will be considered

Note:Martin Grtschel is one of the most influential mathematicians of our time. He has received numerous honors and holds a number of key positions in the international mathematical community. He celebrated his 65th birthday onSeptember 10, 2013. Martin G rtschels doctoral descendant tree 19832012, i.e., the first 30 years, features 39 children, 74 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren, a total of 139 doctoraldescendants. This book starts with a personal tribute to Martin G rtschel by the editors (Part I), a contribution by his very special predecessor Manfred Padberg on Facets and Rank of Integer Polyhedra (Part II), and thedoctoral descendant tree 19832012 (Part III). The core of this book (Part IV) contains 16 contributio ns, each of which is coauthored by at least one doctoral descendant. The sequence of the articles starts with contributions tothe theory of mathematical optimization, including polyhedral combinatorics, extended formulations, mixed-integer convex optimiza tion, superclasses of perfect graphs, efficient algorithms for subtree-telecenters, junctions in acyclicgraphs, and preemptive restricted strip covering, as well as efficient approximation of non-preemptive restricted strip covering. Combinations of new t heoretical insights with algorithms and experiments deal with network designproblems, combinatorial optimization problems with submodular objective functions, and more general mixed-integer nonlinear optimization problems. Applications include VLSI layout design, systems biology, wireless network design,mean-risk optimization, and gas network optimization. Computational studies include a semidefinite branch and cut approach for the max k-cut problem, mixed-integer nonlinear optimal control, and mixed-inte ger linear optimization forscheduling and routing of fly-in safari planes. The two closing articles are devoted to computational advances in general mixed-integer li

Note:Differential algebraic equations (DAEs), including so-called descriptor systems, began to attract significant research interest in applied and numerical mathematics in the early 1980s, no more than about three decades ago. In thisrelatively short tim e, DAEs have become a widely acknowledged tool to model processes subjected to certain constraints in order to simulate and to control processes in various application fields such as network simulation, chemicalkinematics, mechanical engineering and syste ms biology. DAEs and their more abstract versions in infinite dimensional spaces comprise a great potential forthe future mathematical modeling of complex coupled processes. The purpose ofthe book is to expose the impressive complexity of general DAEs fro m an analytical point of view, to describe the state of the art as well as open problems andin sodoing to motivate further researchof this versatile,extraordinary topic from a broader mathematical perspective. The book elaborates on a new general, structu ral analysis capturing linear and nonlinear DAEs in a hierarchical way. The DAE structure is exposed by means of specialprojector functions. Some issues on numerical integration and computational aspects are also treated in this context

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

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

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The semigroup methods are known as a powerful tool for analyzing nonlinear diffusion equations and systems. The author has studied abstract parabolic evolution equations and their applications to nonlinear diffusion equations andsystems for more than 30 years. He gives first, after reviewing the theory of analytic semigroups, an overview of the theories of linear, semilinear and quasilinear abstract parabolic evolution equations as well as general strategiesfor constructing dynamical systems, attract ors and stable-unstable manifolds associated with those nonlinear evolution equations. In the second half of the book, he shows how to apply the abstract results to various models in the realworld focusing on various self-organization models: semiconducto r model, activator-inhibitor model, B-Z reaction model, forest kinematic model, chemotaxis model, termite mound building model, phase transition model, and Lotka-Volterracompetition model. The process and techniques are explained concretely in order to an alyze nonlinear diffusion models by using the methods of abstract evolution equations. Thus the present book fills the gaps of related titles thateither treat only very theoretical examples of equations or introduce many interesting models from Biology an d Ecology, but do not base analytical arguments upon rigorous mathematical theories

Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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. Very useful for anybody co nfronted with viability constraints. Mededelingen van het WiskundigGenootschap

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
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:The aim of this volume that presents Lectures given at a joint CIME and Banach Center Summer School, is to offer a broad presentation of a class of updated methods providing a mathematical framework for the development of ahierarchy of models of comp lex systems in the natural sciences, with a special attention to Biology and Medicine. Mastering complexity implies sharing different tools requiring much higher level of communication between differentmathematical and scientific schools, for solving clas ses of problems of the same nature. Today more than ever, one of the most important challenges derives from the need to bridge parts of a system evolving at different time and spacescales, especially with respect to computational affordability. As a resul t the content has a rather general character the main role is played by stochastic processes, positive semigroups, asymptotic analysis, kinetic theory,continuum theory and game theory

Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Using tools from mathematical kinetic theory and stochastic game theory, this work deals with the modeling of large complex systems in the applied sciences, particularly those comprised of several interacting individuals whosedynamics follow rules de termined by some organized, or even intelligent ability. Traditionally, methods of mathematical kinetic theory have been applied to model the evolution of large systems of interacting classical or quantumparticles. This book, on the other hand, examines t he modeling of living systems as opposed to inert systems. The author develops new mathematical methods and toolshopefully a new mathematicstoward the modeling of livingsystems. Such tools need to be far more complex than those dealing with systems of ine rt matter. The first part of the book deals with deriving general evolution equations that can be customized to particular systems of interest in theapplied sciences. The second part of the book deals with various models and applications. The presentation unfolds using the following common approach in each chapter: * Phenomenological interpretation of the physical system in thecontext of mathematical modeling * Derivation of the mathematical model using methods from mathematical kinetic theory for active particles * Simulations, parameter sensitivity analysis, and critical inspection of the derived modeltowards validation * Overview of presented ideas to improve existing models, with special emphasis on applications Specific topics covered include: * Mode ling of the competition between cells of an aggressive invasive agent and cellsof the immune system * Modeling of vehicular traffic flow * Modeling of swarms and crowd dynamics in complex geometric environments * Methodological aspects related to multisca le modeling of large systems viewed as interconnectedsubsystems Modeling Complex Living Systems is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, economists

Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:R is an Open Source implementation of the S language. It works on multiple computing platforms and can be freely downloaded. R is now in widespread use for teaching at many levels as well as for practical data analysis andmethodological development. This book provides an elementary-level introduction to R, targeting both non-statistician scientists in various fields and students of statistics. The main mode of presentation is via code examples withliberal commenting of the code and the output, from t he computational as well as the statistical viewpoint. A supplementary R package can be downloaded and contains the data sets. The statistical methodology includes statisticalstandard distributions, one- and two-sample tests with continuous data, regressi on analysis, one- and two-way analysis of variance, regression analysis, analysis of tabular data, and sample size calculations. In addition, the last sixchapters contain introductions to multiple linear regression analysis, linear models in general, logi stic regression, survival analysis, Poisson regression, and nonlinear regression. In the second edition, the text and code have beenupdated to R version 2.6.2. The last two methodological chapters are new, as is a chapter on advanced data handling.

Title:Simulation and Inference for Stochastic Differential Equations [electronic resource] : With R Examples
Author(s): Stefano M Iacus
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note: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.

Title:Model Based Inference in the Life Sciences: A Primer on Evidence [electronic resource]
Author(s): David R Anderson
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The abstract concept of information can be quantified and this has led to many important advances in the analysis of data in the empirical sciences. This text focuses on a science philosophy based on multiple workinghypotheses and statistical models to represent them. The fundamental science question relates to the empirical evidence for hypotheses in this seta formal strength of evidence. Kullback-Leibler information is the information lostwhen a model is used to approximate full reality. Hirotugu A kaike found a link between K-L information (a cornerstone of information theory) and the maximized log-likelihood (a cornerstone of mathematical statistics). This combinationhas become the basis for a new paradigm in model based inference. The text advoca tes formal inference from all the hypotheses/models in the a priori setmultimodel inference. This compelling approach allows a simple ranking of thescience hypothesis and their models. Simple methods are introduced for computing the likelihood of model i, given the data the probability of model i, given the data and evidence ratios. These quantities represent a formal strengthof evidence and are easy to compute and understand, given the estimated model parameters and associated quantities (e.g., residual sum of squares, maximized log-likelihood, and covariance matrices). Additional forms of multimodelinference include model averaging, unconditional variances, and ways to rank the relative importance of predictor variables. This textbook is written for peo ple new to the information-theoretic approaches to statistical inference,whether graduate students, post-docs, or professionals in various universities, agencies or institutes. Readers are expected to have a background in general statistical principles, r egression analysis, and some exposure to likelihoodmethods. This is not an elementary text as it assumes reasonable competence in modeling and parameter estimation. DAVID R. ANDERSON retired

Gheorghe Moroanu
Date:2007
Publisher:Basel : Birkhuser Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a detailed asymptotic analysis of some important classes of singularly perturbed boundary value problems which are mathematical models for various phenomena in biology, chemistry, and engineering. The authors areparticularly interest ed in nonlinear problems, which have hardly been examined so far in the literature dedicated to singular perturbations. This book proposes to fill in this gap, since most applications are described by nonlinearmodels. Their asymptotic analysis is very int eresting, but requires special methods and tools. The treatment presented in this volume combines some of the most successful results from different parts of mathematics, includingfunctional analysis, singular perturbation theory, partial differential equ ations, and evolution equations. Thus a complete justification for the replacement of various perturbed models with corresponding reduced models, which aresimpler but in general have a different character, is offered to the reader Specific applications ar e addressed, such as propagation of electromagnetic or mechanical waves, fluid flows, or diffusion processes. However, the methodspresented are also applicable to other mathematical models. The book covers mostly original results by the authors. It is des igned for researchers and graduate students

Note:This book presents models written as partial differential equations and originating from various questions in population biology, such as physiologically structured equations, adaptive dynamics, and bacterial movement. Its purposeis to derive appropr iate mathematical tools and qualitative properties of the solutions (long time behavior, concentration phenomena, asymptotic behavior, regularizing effects, blow-up or dispersion). Original mathematical methodsdescribed are, among others, the generalized relative entropy method - a unique method to tackle most of the problems in population biology, the description of Dirac concentration effects using a new type of Hamilton-Jacobi equations,and a general point of view on chemotaxis including various scales of description leading to kinetic, parabolic or hyperbolic equations

Note:Mathematical models in biology and medicine cannot be based on natural laws as it is the case with physics and chemistry. This is due to the fact that biological and medical processes are concerned with living organisms.Mathematical models, however, can be used as a language by which certain aspects of biological or medical processes can be expressed. In general, several mathematical models can be designed in order to describe a biological or medicalprocess and there is no unique criterion which mode l gives the best description. This book presents several of these models and shows applications of them to different biological and medical problems. The book shows that operationsresearch expertise is necessary in respect to modeling, analysis and optimi zation of biosystems

Title:Killer Cell Dynamics [electronic resource] : Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Immunology
Author(s): Dominik Wodarz
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book reviews how mathematics can be used in combination with biological data in order to improve understanding of how the immune system works. This is illustrated largely in the context of viral infections. Mathematicalmodels allow scientists to capture complex biological interactions in a clear mathematical language and to follow them to their precise logical conclusions. This can give rise to counter-intuitive insights which would not be attainedby experiments alone, and can be used for the de sign of further experiments in order to address the mathematical results. This book provides both an introduction to the field of mathematical immunology, and an overview of many topicswhich are the subject of current research, covering a broad variety of immunological topics. It starts with basic principles of immunology and covers the dynamical interactions between the immune system and specific viral infections,including important human pathogens such as HIV. General biological and mathematical backgro und material to both virus infection and immune system dynamics is provided, and each chapter begins with a simple introduction to thebiological questions examined. This book is intended for an interdisciplinary audience. It explains the concept of mathem atical modeling in immunology and shows how modeling has been used to address specific questions. It is intendedboth for the mathematical biologists who are interested in immunology, and for the biological readership that is interested in the use of mathe matical models in immunology. Dominik Wodarz is an Associate Professor at the Department ofEcology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine

Title:Functional Approach to Nonlinear Models of Water Flow in Soils [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gabriela Marinoschi
Date:2006
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a work of applied mathematics focusing on the functional study of the nonlinear boundary value problems relating to water flow in porous media. As far as revealed by the literature, a systematic study of these modelswithin the above ment ioned framework has not been done and the book has been written with the belief that the abstract theory may be sometimes easier and richer in consequences for applications than standard classical approaches are.The volume deals with diffusion type models and emphasizes the mathematical treatment of their nonlinear aspects. A unifying functional approach to different boundary value problems modelling the water movement in porous media ispresented, and the high degree of generality and abstraction, kept ho wever within reasonable limits, is rewarded by the richness of the results obtained in this way. From the mathematical point of view the results obtained can beconsidered as general results in the theory of nonlinear parabolic equations. Although water fl ow in soils was the principal exemplification for the functional treatment, the techniques used within the book and the results obtainedhere turn out useful for studying other appropriate problems arising in general in the movement of fluids in porous med ia, in the heat theory, phase transitions, biology, chemistry or engineering

Note:Power Laws, Scale-free Networks and Genome Biology deals with crucial aspects of the theoretical foundations of systems biology, namely power law distributions and scale-free networks which have emerged as the hallmarks ofbiological organization in t he post-genomic era. The chapters in the book not only describe the interesting mathematical properties of biological networks but moves beyond phenomenology, toward models of evolution capable of explainingthe emergence of these features. The collection of chapters, contributed by both physicists and biologists, strives to address the problems in this field in a rigorous but not excessively mathematical manner and to represent differentviewpoints, which is crucial in this emerging discipline. Each chapte r includes, in addition to technical descriptions of properties of biological networks and evolutionary models, a more general and accessible introduction to therespective problems. Most chapters emphasize the potential of theoretical systems biology for discovery of new biological phenomena

Title:Tutorials in Mathematical Biosciences II [electronic resource] : Mathematical Modeling of Calcium Dynamics and Signal Transduction
Author(s): James Sneyd
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents a series of models in the general area of cell physiology and signal transduction, with particular attention being paid to intracellular calcium dynamics, and the role played by calcium in a variety of celltypes. Calcium plays a cr ucial role in cell physiology, and the study of its dynamics lends insight into many different cellular processes. In particular, calcium plays a central role in muscular contraction, olfactory transduction andsynaptic communication, three of the topics t o be addressed in detail in this book. In addition to the models, this book also presents much of the underlying physiology, so that readers may learn both the mathematics and the physiologyat the same time, and see how the models are applied to specific biological questions. It is thus neither a mathematics book nor a physiology book, but has features from both sides of the fence. It is intended primarily as a graduatetext or a research reference. However, some parts of the book, particularly the introdu ctory chapters on calcium dynamics will be well within the reach of some undergraduates. It will serve as a concise and up-to-date introduction toall those who wish to learn about the state of calcium dynamics modeling, and how such models are applied to physiological questions

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Analysis of variance (ANOVA) models have become widely used tools and play a fundamental role in much of the application of statistics today. In particular, ANOVA models involving random effects have found widespread applicationto experimental design in a variety of fields requiring measurements of variance, including agriculture, biology, animal breeding, applied genetics, econometrics, quality control, medicine, engineering, and social sciences. Thistwo-volume work is a comprehensive presentation o f different methods and techniques for point estimation, interval estimation, and tests of hypotheses for linear models involving random effects. Both Bayesian and repeated samplingprocedures are considered. Volume I examines models with balanced data (or thogonal models) Volume II studies models with unbalanced data (nonorthogonal models). Features and Topics: * Systematic treatment of the commonly employedcrossed and nested classification models used in analysis of variance designs * Detailed and thoroug h discussion of certain random effects models not commonly found in texts at the introductory or intermediate level * Numericalexamples to analyze data from a wide variety of disciplines * Many worked examples containing computer outputs from standard sof tware packages such as SAS, SPSS, and BMDP for each numerical example * Extensive exercise sets at the endof each chapter * Numerous appendices with background reference concepts, terms, and results * Balanced coverage of theory, methods, and practical ap plications * Complete citations of important and related works at the end of eachchapter, as well as an extensive general bibliography Accessible to readers with only a modest mathematical and statistical background, the work will appeal to a broad audien ce of students, researchers, and practitioners in themathematical, life, social, and engineering sciences.

Title:Modeling Longitudinal Data [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert E Weiss
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the artand statistical scie nce of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend andcovariates, models the covariance matrix, and t hen draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured modelsamong others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and cri tique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables.Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, mode ls for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computationalalgorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as backgroun d and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum.The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostati stics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students indisciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many fig ures and tables illustrating longitudinal data andnumerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material

Title:Shortest Connectivity [electronic resource] : An Introduction with Applications in Phylogeny
Author(s): Dietmar Cieslik
Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The problem of Shortest Connectivity has a long and convoluted history: given a finite set of points in a metric space, search for a network that connects these points with the shortest possible length. This shortest networkmust be a tree and may con tain vertices different from the points which are to be connected. Over the years more and more real-life problems are given, which use this problem or one of its relatives as an application, as a subproblemor a model. This volume is an introduction to th e theory of Shortest Connectivity, as the core of the so-called Geometric Network Design Problems, where the general problem can be stated as follows: given a configuration ofvertices and/or edges, find a network which contains these objects, satisfies so me predetermined requirements, and which minimizes a given objective function that depends on several distance measures. A new application of shortestconnectivity is also discussed, namely to create trees which reflect the evolutionary history of living e ntities. The aim in this graduate level text is to outline the key mathematical concepts that underpin these importantquestions in applied mathematics. These concepts involve discrete mathematics (particularly graph theory), optimization, computer science , and several ideas in biology
