Title:Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frits Agterberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newlydeveloped by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research by geomathematical colleagues, but by government organizations and industry worldwide. These includeWeights-of-Evidence modelling, mineral resource e stimation technology, trend surface analysis, automatic stratigraphic correlation and nonlinear geochemical exploration methods. The author has developed maximum likelihood methodologyand spline-fitting techniques for the construction of the international numerical geologic timescale. He has introduced the application of new theory of fractals and multifractals in the geostatistical evaluation of regional mineralresources and ore reserves and to study the spatial distribution of metals in rocks. The book also contains sections deemed important by the author but that have not been widely adopted because they require further research. Theseinclude the geometry of preferred orientations of contours and edge effects on maps, time series analysis of Quaternary retreating ice sheet related sedimentary data, estimation of first and last appearances of fossil taxa fromfrequency distributions of their observed first and last occurrences, tectonic reactivation along pre-existing schistosity planes in fold belts, us e of the grouped jackknife method for bias reduction in geometrical extrapolations, andnew applications of the theory of permanent, volume-independent frequency distributions

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The center of our Solar System is a star, one among billions of stars in our own galaxy. This star, which we call the Sun, gives rise to all life on Earth, is the driver of the photosynthesis in plants, and is the source of allfood, energy, and fossi l fuels on Earth. For us humans, the Sun as seen with the naked eye appears as a static and quiet yellow disk in the sky. However, it is in fact a stormy and variable star and contributes much more than onlylight and heat. It is the source of the beautifu l northern and southern lights and can affect our technology-based society in many ways. The Sun is, like astronomy in general, a good entrance to natural science, since it affects us inso many ways and connects us to many other fields of science, such as physics, chemistry, biology, and meteorology. The book includes additional material on Springer Extras, a large number of animations and video material. A PowerPointpresentation of the book is also included there as a useful resource for teachers

Title:The Second Law of Economics [electronic resource] Energy, Entropy, and the Origins of Wealth
Author(s): Reiner Kmmel
Date:2011
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:Nothing happens in the world without energy conversion and entropy production. These fundamental natural laws are familiar to most of us when applied to the evolution of stars, biological processes, or the working of an internalcombustion engine, but what about industrial economies and wealth production, or their constant companion, pollution? Does economics conform to the First and the Second Law of Thermodynamics? In this important book, ReinerKmmel takes us on a fascinating tour of these laws and their influence on natural, technological, and social evolution. Analyzing economic growth in Germany, Japan, and the United States in light of technological constraints oncapital, labor, and energy, Professor Kmmel upends conventional economic wisdom by showing that the productive power of energy far outweighs its small share of costs, while for labor just the opposite is true. Wealth creation byenergy conversion is accompanied and limited by polluting emissions that are coupled to entropy production. Th ese facts constitute the Second Law of Economics. They take on unprecedented importance in a world that is facing peakoil, debt-driven economic turmoil, and threats from pollution and climate change. They complement the First Law of Economics: Wealth is a llocated on markets, and the legal framework determines the outcome. By applying the First andSecond Law we understand the true origins of wealth production, the issues that imperil the goal of sustainable development, and the technological options that a re compatible both with this goal and with natural laws. The criticalrole of energy and entropy in the productive sectors of the economy must be realized if we are to create a road map that avoids a Dark Age of shrinking natural resources, environmental d egradation, and increasing social tensions

Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Forest Analytics with R combines practical, down-to-earth forestry data analysis and solutions to real forest management challenges with state-of-the-art statistical and data-handling functionality. The authors adopt aproblem-driven approach, in whic h statistical and mathematical tools are introduced in the context of the forestry problem that they can help to resolve. All the tools are introduced in the context of real forestry datasets, whichprovide compelling examples of practical applications. Th e modeling challenges covered within the book include imputation and interpolation for spatial data, fitting probability density functions to tree measurement data using maximumlikelihood, fitting allometric functions using both linear and non-linear leas t-squares regression, and fitting growth models using both linear and non-linear mixed-effects modeling. The coverage also includes deploying and usingforest growth models written in compiled languages, analysis of natural resources and forestry inventory data, and forest estate planning and optimization using linear programming. The book would be ideal for a one-semester class inforest biometrics or applied statistics for natural resources management. The text assumes no programming background, some intr oductory statistics, and very basic applied mathematics. Andrew Robinson has been associate professor offorest mensuration and forest biometrics at the University of Idaho, and is currently senior lecturer in applied statistics at the University of Melbou rne. He received his PhD in forestry from the University of Minnesota. Robinson isauthor of the popular and freely-available icebreakeR document.

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 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

Title:Maximum Penalized Likelihood Estimation [electronic resource] : Volume II: Regression
Author(s): Vincent N LaRiccia
Paul P Eggermont
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

Title:Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations [electronic resource]

Date:2008
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Computational resources have developed to the level that, for the first time, it is becoming possible to apply large-eddy simulation (LES) to turbulent flow problems of realistic complexity. Many examples can be found intechnology and in a variety of natural flows. This puts issues related to assessing, assuring, and predicting the quality of LES into the spotlight. Several LES studies have been published in the past, demonstrating a high level ofaccuracy with which turbulent flow predictions can be attained, without having to resort to the excessive requirements on computational resources imposed by direct numerical simulations. However, the setup and use of turbulent flowsimulations requires a profound knowledge of fluid mechanics, numerical techni ques, and the application under consideration. The susceptibility of large-eddy simulations to errors in modelling, in numerics, and in the treatment ofboundary conditions, can be quite large due to nonlinear accumulation of different contributions over t ime, leading to an intricate and unpredictable situation. A full understanding of the interacting error dynamics in large-eddysimulations is still lacking. To ensure the reliability of large-eddy simulations for a wide range of industrial users, the devel opment of clear standards for the evaluation, prediction, and control of simulation errors in LES issummoned. The workshop on Quality and Reliability of Large-Eddy Simulations, held October 22-24, 2007 in Leuven, Belgium (QLES2007), provided one of the fi rst platforms specifically addressing these aspects of LES
