Title:Symmetries in Fundamental Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kurt Sundermeyer
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Over the course of the last century it has become clear that both elementary particle physics and relativity theories are based on the notion of symmetries. These symmetries become manifest in that the laws of nature areinvariant under spacetime tran sformations and/or gauge transformations. The consequences of these symmetries were analyzed as early as in 1918 by Emmy Noether on the level of action functionals. Her work did not receive due recognitionfor nearly half a century, but can today be unders tood as a recurring theme in classical mechanics, electrodynamics and special relativity, Yang-Mills type quantum field theories, and in general relativity. As a matter of fact, asshown in this monograph, many aspects of physics can be derived solely from symmetry considerations. This substantiates the statement of E.P. Wigner ... if we knew all the laws of nature, or the ultimate Law of nature, the invarianceproperties of these laws would not furnish us new information. Thanks to Wigner we now also under stand the implications of quantum physics and symmetry considerations: Poincare invariance dictates both the characteristic propertiesof particles (mass, spin, ...) and the wave equations of spin 0, 1/2, 1, ... objects. Further, the work of C.N. Yang and R. Mills reveals the consequences of internal symmetries as exemplified in the symmetry group of elementaryparticle physics. Given this pivotal role of symmetries it is thus not surprising that current research in fundamental physics is to a great degree motivated and inspired by considerations of symmetry. The treatment of symmetries inthis monograph ranges from classical physics to now well-established theories of fundamental interactions, to the latest research on unified theories and quantum gravity

Bernhard Burgeth
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Arising from the fourth Dagstuhl conference entitled Visualization and Processing of Tensors and Higher Order Descriptors for Multi-Valued Data (2011), this book offers a broad and vivid view of current work in this emergingfield. Topics covered rang e from applications of the analysis of tensor fields to research on their mathematical and analytical properties. Part I, Tensor Data Visualization, surveys techniques for visualization of tensors and tensorfields in engineering, discusses the current sta te of the art and challenges, and examines tensor invariants and glyph design, including an overview of common glyphs. The second Part, Representation and Processing of Higher-orderDescriptors, describes a matrix representation of local phase, outlines ma thematical morphological operations techniques, extended for use in vector images, and generalizes erosion to the space of diffusion weighted MRI. Part III,Higher Order Tensors and Riemannian-Finsler Geometry, offers powerful mathematical language to mode l and analyze large and complex diffusion data such as High Angular Resolution Diffusion Imaging (HARDI) and Diffusion Kurtosis Imaging(DKI). A Part entitled Tensor Signal Processing presents new methods for processing tensor-valued data, including a nove l perspective on performing voxel-wise morphometry of diffusion tensor data using kernel-based approach, exploresthe free-water diffusion model, and reviews proposed approaches for computing fabric tensors, emphasizing trabecular bone research. The last P art, Applications of Tensor Processing, discusses metric and curvature tensors, two of themost studied tensors in geometry processing. Also covered is a technique for diagnostic prediction of first-episode schizophrenia patients based on brain diffusion M RI data. The last chapter presents an interactive system integratingthe visual analysis of diffusion MRI tractography with data from electroencephalography

Title:Dressed Photons [electronic resource] : Concepts of LightMatter Fusion Technology
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Authored by the developer of dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics, this book outlines concepts of the subject using a novel theoretical framework that differs from conventional wave optics. It provides aquantum theoretical d escription of optical near fields and related problems that puts matter excitation such as electronic and vibrational ones on an equal footing with photons. By this description, optical near fields are interpretedas quasi-particles and named dressed photo ns which carry the material excitation energy in a nanometric space. The author then explores novel nanophotonic devices, fabrications, and energy conversion based on the theoretical picture ofdressed photons. Further, this book looks at how the assembly of nanophotonic devices produces information and communication systems. Dressed photon science and technology is on its way to revolutionizing various applications indevices, fabrications, and systems. Promoting further exploration in the field, this book presents physically intuitive concepts, theories, and technical details for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in research anddevelopment in dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics

Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published

Title:Symmetries in Fundamental Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kurt Sundermeyer
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Over the course of the last century it has become clear that both elementary particle physics and relativity theories are based on the notion of symmetries. These symmetries become manifest in that the laws of nature areinvariant under spacetime tran sformations and/or gauge transformations. The consequences of these symmetries were analyzed as early as in 1918 by Emmy Noether on the level of action functionals. Her work did not receive due recognitionfor nearly half a century, but can today be unders tood as a recurring theme in classical mechanics, electrodynamics and special relativity, Yang-Mills type quantum field theories, and in general relativity. As a matter of fact, asshown in this monograph, many aspects of physics can be derived solely from symmetry considerations. This substantiates the statement of E.P.Wigner ... if we knew all the laws of nature, or the ultimate Law of nature, the invarianceproperties of these laws would not furnish us new information. Thanks to Wigner we now also unders tand the implications of quantum physics and symmetry considerations: Poincare invariance dictates both the characteristic propertiesof particles (mass, spin, ...) and the wave equations of spin 0, 1/2, 1, ... objects. Further, the work of C.N.Yang and R. Mills reveals the consequences of internal symmetries as exemplified in the symmetry group of elementary particlephysics. Given this pivotal role of symmetries it is thus not surprising that current research in fundamental physics is to a great degree mot ivated and inspired by considerations of symmetry.The treatment of symmetries in thismonograph ranges from classical physics to now well-established theories of fundamental interactions, to the latest research on unified theories and quantum gravity

Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 6th International Conference on Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics conference (PED2012) showcased research on human locomotion. This book presents the proceedings of PED2012. Humans have walked for eons our drive to settlethe globe began with a w alk out of Africa. However, much remains to discover. As the world moves toward sustainability while racing to assess and accommodate climate change, research must provide insight on the physical requirements ofwalking, the dynamics of pedestrians on the move and more. We must understand, predict and simulate pedestrian behaviour, to avoid dangerous situations, to plan for emergencies, and not least, to make walking more attractive andenjoyable. PED2012 offered 70 presentations and keynotes and 70 poster presentations covering new and improved mathematical models, describing new insights on pedestrian behaviour in normal and emergency cases and presenting researchbased on sensors and advanced observation methods. These papers offer a starting point for in novative new research, building a strong foundation for the next conference and for future research

Title:Integrating Routing Decisions in Public Transportation Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Marie E Schmidt
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book treats three planning problems arising in public railway transportation planning: line planning, timetabling, and delay management, with the objective to minimize passengers travel time. While many optimizationapproaches simplify these prob lems by assuming that passengers route choice is independent of the solution, this book focuses on models which take into account that passengers will adapt their travel route to the implementedplanning solution. That is, a planning solution and passenger s routes are determined and evaluated simultaneously. This work is technically deep, with insightful findings regarding complexity and algorithmic approaches to publictransportation problems with integrated passenger routing. It is intended for researcher s in the fields of mathematics, computer science, or operations research, working in the field of public transportation from an optimizationstandpoint. It is also ideal for students who want to gain intuition and experience in doing complexity proofs and designing polynomial-time algorithms for network problems. The book models line planning, timetabling, and delaymanagement as combined design and routing problems on networks. In a complexity analysis, the border between NP-hard and polynomially solvable problems is illustrated. Based on that, the insights gained are used to develop solutionapproaches for the considered problems. Besides integer programming formulations, a heuristic method iterating planning and routing steps is proposed to solve the prob lems

Title:Small Satellites and Their Regulation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ram S Jakhu
Joseph N Pelton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Since the launch of UoSat-1 of the University of Surrey (United Kingdom) in 1981, small satellites proved regularly to be useful, beneficial, and cost-effective tools. Typical tasks cover education and workforce development,technology demonstration, verification and validation, scientific and engineering research as well as commercial applications. Today the launch masses range over almost three orders of magnitude starting at less than a kilogram up to afew hundred kilograms, with budgets of less th an US$ 100.00 and up to millions within very short timeframes of sometimes less than two years. Therefore each category of small satellites provides specific challenges in design,development and operations. Small satellites offer great potentials to gain responsive, low-cost access to space within a short timeframe for institutions, companies, regions and countries beyond the traditional big players in thespace arena. For these reasons (particularly the low cost of construction, launch and operation), sma ll (micro, cube or nano) satellites are being preferred by students and educational institutions, amateur radio operators, small anddeveloping countries, international aid agencies and most recently by defense agencies and satellite operators who are exam ining deployment of constellation clusters instead of conventional application satellites. In some cases thesenew capabilities are being deployed as hosted payloads on larger satellites. The advent of hosted payloads as a significant part of the satellite industry represents a key new topic that this book will address. The number of smallsatellitesof various types--is increasing fast as their benefits are being realized. This short and unique interdisciplinary book, covering both technical and regulatory aspects, examines all the different types of applications andreasons for small as well as exploring technical and operational innovations that are being introduced.

Title:Statistical Decision Problems [electronic resource] : Selected Concepts and Portfolio Safeguard Case Studies
Author(s): Michael Zabarankin
Stan Uryasev
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Statistical Decision Problems presents a quick and concise introduction into the theory of risk, deviation and error measures that play a key role in statistical decision problems. It introduces state-of-the-art practical decisionmaking through twent y-one case studies from real-life applications. The case studies cover a broad area of topics and the authors include links with source code and data, a very helpful tool for the reader. In its core, the textdemonstrates how to use different factors to fo rmulate statistical decision problems arising in various risk management applications, such as optimal hedging, portfolio optimization, cash flow matching, classification, and more. Thepresentation is organized into three parts: selected concepts of stat istical decision theory, statistical decision problems, and case studies with portfolio safeguard. The text is primarily aimed at practitioners in the areas of riskmanagement, decision making, and statistics. However, the inclusion of a fair bit of mathem atical rigor renders this monograph an excellent introduction to the theory of general error, deviation, and risk measures for graduatestudents. It can be used as supplementary reading for graduate courses including statistical analysis, data mining, stoc hastic programming, financial engineering, to name a few. The high level of detail may serve useful to appliedmathematicians, engineers, and statisticians interested in modeling and managing risk in various applications

Title:A Probability Path [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sidney I Resnick
Date:2014
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Many probability books are written by mathematicians and have the built-in bias that the reader is assumed to be a mathematician coming to the material for its beauty. This textbook is geared towards beginning graduate studentsfrom a variety of disci plines whose primary focus is not necessarily mathematics for its own sake. Instead, A Probability Path is designed for those requiring a deep understanding of advanced probability for their research instatistics, applied probability, biology, operations research, mathematical finance, and engineering. Aone-semester course is laid out in an efficient and readable manner covering the core material. The first three chaptersprovide a functioning knowledge of measure theory. Chapter 4 discusses independence, with expectation and integration covered in Chapter 5, followed by topics on different modes of convergence, laws of large numbers with applicationsto statistics (quantile and distribution function estimation), and applied probability. Two subsequent cha pters offer a careful treatment of convergence in distribution and the central limit theorem. The final chapter treatsconditional expectation and martingales, closing with a discussion of two fundamental theorems of mathematical finance. Like Adventures in Stochastic Processes, Resnicks related and very successful textbook, A Probability Path isrich in appropriate examples, illustrations, and problems, and is suitable for classroom use or self-study. The present uncorrected, softcover reprintis designed to make this classic textbookavailable to a wider audience. This book is different from the classical textbooks on probability theory in that it treats the measure theoreticbackground not as a prerequisite but as an integral part of probability theory. Th e result is that the reader gets a thorough and well-structured framewo

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

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This research monograph provides a geometric description of holonomic differential systems in one or more variables. Stokes matrices form the extended monodromy data for a linear differential equation of one complex variable nearan irregular singular point. The present volume presents the approach in terms of Stokes filtrations. For linear differential equations on a Riemann surface, it also develops the related notion of a Stokes-perverse sheaf. This point ofview is generalized to holonomic systems of linear differential equations in the complex domain, and a general Riemann-Hilbert correspondence is proved for vector bundles with meromorphic connections on a complex manifold. Applicationsto the distributions solutions to such systems are also discu ssed, and various operations on Stokes-filtered local systems are analyzed

Title:Space-Filling Curves [electronic resource] : An Introduction with Applications in Scientific Computing
Author(s): Michael Bader
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present book provides an introduction to using space-filling curves (SFC) as tools in scientific computing. Special focus is laid on the representation of SFC and on resulting algorithms. For example, grammar-basedtechniques are introduced for tr aversals of Cartesian and octree-type meshes, and arithmetisation of SFC is explained to compute SFC mappings and indexings. The locality properties of SFC are discussed in detail, together with theirimportance for algorithms.

Note:Introduction to Global Optimization Exploiting Space-Filling Curves provides an overview of classical and new results pertaining to the usage of space-filling curves in global optimization. The authors look at a family ofderivative-free numerical alg orithms applying space-filling curves to reduce the dimensionality of the global optimization problem along with a number of unconventional ideas, such as adaptive strategies for estimating Lipschitzconstant, balancing global and local information to acce lerate the search. Convergence conditions of the described algorithms are studied in depth and theoretical considerations are illustrated through numerical examples. This workalso contains a code for implementing space-filling curves that can be used for constructing new global optimization algorithms. Basic ideas from this text can be applied to a number of problems including problems with multiextremaland partially defined constraints and non-redundant parallel computations can be organized. Professors, students, researchers, engineers, and other professionals in the fields of pure mathematics, nonlinear sciences studying fractals,operations research, management science, industrial and applied mathematics, computer science, engineering, economics, and t he environmental sciences will find this title useful .

Note:This is the most comprehensive survey of the mathematical life of the legendary Paul Erds (1913-1996), one of the most versatile and prolific mathematicians of our time. For the first time, all the main areas of Erds'research are covered in a single project. Because of overwhelming response from the mathematical community, the project now occupies over 1000 pages, arranged into two volumes. These volumes contain both high level research articles aswell as key articles that survey some of the cornerst ones of Erds' work, each written by a leading world specialist in the field. A special chapter Early Days, rare photographs, and art related to Erds complement this strikingcollection. A unique contribution is the bibliography on Erds' publications: the m ost comprehensive ever published. This new edition, dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Paul Erds' birth, contains updates on many of the articlesfrom the two volumes of the first edition, several new articles from prominent mathematicians, a new introd uction, and more biographical information about Paul Erds with an updated list of publications. The second volume containschapters on graph theory and combinatorics, extremal and Ramsey theory, and a section on infinity that covers Erds' research on set t heory. All of these chapters are essentially updated, particularly the extremal theory chapter thatcontains a survey of flag algebras, a new technique for solving extremal problems

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology develops a wide spectrum of nonlinear optimization applications expressed in the GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) language. The book is highly self-containedand is designed to pres ent applications in a general form that can be easily understood and quickly updated or modified to represent situations from the real world. The book emphasizes the local solutions of the large-scale, complex,continuous nonlinear optimization application s, and the abundant examples in GAMS are highlighted by those involving ODEs, PDEs, and optimal control. The collection of these examples will be useful for software developers andtesters. Chapter one presents aspects concerning the mathematical modeling process in the context of mathematical modeling technologies based on algebraic-oriented modeling languages. The GAMS technology is introduced in Chapter 2,mainly as a system for formulating and solving a large variety of general optimization models. The bulk of the82 nonlinear optimization applications is given in Chapter 3. This book is primarily intended to serve as a reference forgraduate students and for scientists working in various disciplines of industry/mathematical programming that use optimizat ion methods to model and solve problems. It is also well suited as supplementary material for seminars inoptimization, operations research, and decision making, to name a few

Note:Survey sampling is fundamentally an applied field. The goal in this book is to put an array of tools at the fingertips of practitioners by explaining approaches long used by survey statisticians, illustrating how existingsoftware can be used to solve survey problems, and developing some specialized software where needed. This book serves at least three audiences: (1) Students seeking a more in-depth understanding of applied sampling either through asecond semester-long course or by way of a supplemen tary reference (2) Survey statisticians searching for practical guidance on how to apply concepts learned in theoretical or applied sampling courses and (3) Social scientists andother survey practitioners who desire insight into the statistical thinking a nd steps taken to design, select, and weight random survey samples. Several survey data sets are used to illustrate how to design samples, to make estimatesfrom complex surveys for use in optimizing the sample allocation, and to calculate weights. Realist ic survey projects are used to demonstrate the challenges and provide a context for the solutions. The book covers several topics thateither are not included or are dealt with in a limited way in other texts. These areas include: sample size computations for multistage designs power calculations related to surveys mathematical programming for sample allocation in amulti-criteria optimization setting nuts and bolts of area probability sampling multiphase designs quality control of survey operations and sta tistical software for survey sampling and estimation. An associated R package,PracTools, contains a number of specialized functions for sample size and other calculations. The data sets used in the book are also available in PracTools, so that the reader may replicate the examples or perform further analyses.Richard Valliant is a Research Professor at the Institute for Social Research of the University of Michigan and at the Joint Program in S

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

Note:Essentials of Monte Carlo Simulation focuses on the fundamentals of Monte Carlo methods using basic computer simulation techniques. The theories presented in this text deal with systems that are too complex to solve analytically.As a result, readers are given a system of interest and constructs using computer code, as well as algorithmic models to emulate how the system works internally. After the models are run very many times, in a random sample way, thedata for each output variable(s) of interest is analyzed by ordinary statistical methods. This book features 11 comprehensive chapters, and discusses such key topics as random number generators, multivariate random variates, andcontinuous random variates. More than 100 numerical examples are present ed in the chapters to illustrate useful real world applications. The text also contains an easy to read presentation with minimal use of difficult mathematicalconcepts. With a strong focus in the area of computer Monte Carlo simulation methods, this book will appeal to students and researchers in the fields of Mathematics and Statistics. Nick T. Thomopoulos is a professor emeritus at theIllinois Institute of Technology. He is the author of six books, including Fundamentals of Queuing Systems (2012).

Note:Finite-dimensional optimization problems occur throughout the mathematical sciences. The majority of these problems cannot be solved analytically. This introduction to optimization attempts to strike a balance betweenpresentation of mathematical theo ry and development of numerical algorithms. Building on students skills in calculus and linear algebra, the text provides a rigorous exposition without undue abstraction. Its stress on statisticalapplications will be especially appealing to graduate stude nts of statistics and biostatistics. The intended audience also includes students in applied mathematics, computational biology, computer science, economics, and physics whowant to see rigorous mathematics combined with real applications. In this second edition, the emphasis remains on finite-dimensional optimization. New material has been added on the MM algorithm, block descent and ascent, and thecalculus of variations. Convex calculus is now treated in much greater depth. Advanced topics such as the F enchel conjugate, subdifferentials, duality, feasibility, alternating projections, projected gradient methods, exact penaltymethods, and Bregman iteration will equip students with the essentials for understanding modern data mining techniques in high dime nsions

Note:The connected dominating set (CDS)has been a classic subject studied in graph theory since 1975. It has been discovered inrecent years thatCDS has important applications in communication networks especially in wirelessnetworks as a virtual backbone. Motivated from those applications, many papers have been published in the literature during last 15 years. Now, the connected dominating set has become a hot research topic in computer science. Thiswork isa valuable reference for researchers in computer s cience and operations research, especially in areas of theoretical computer science, computer communication networks, combinatorial optimization, industrial engineering, anddiscrete mathematics. The book may also be used as a text in a graduate seminar fo r PhD students. Readers should have a basic knowledge of computational complexity and combinatorial optimization. In this book, the authors present thestate-of-the-art in the study of connected dominating sets.

Note:Matrix-analytic and related methods have become recognized as an important and fundamental approach for the mathematical analysis of general classes of complex stochastic models. Research in the area of matrix-analytic andrelated methods seeks to dis cover underlying probabilistic structures intrinsic in such stochastic models, develop numerical algorithms for computing functionals (e.g., performance measures) of the underlying stochastic processes, andapply these probabilistic structures and/or compu tational algorithms within a wide variety of fields. This volume presents recent research results on: the theory, algorithms and methodologies concerning matrix-analytic and relatedmethods in stochastic models and the application of matrix-analytic and re lated methods in various fields, which includes but is not limited to computer science and engineering, communication networks and telephony, electrical andindustrial engineering, operations research, management science, financial and risk analysis, and b io-statistics. These research studies provide deep insights and understanding of the stochastic models of interest from amathematicsandapplications perspective, as well as identify directions for future research

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:In this book the author presents a new approach to the study of weakly structurable dynamic systems. It differs from other approaches by considering time asa sourceof fuzzy uncertainty in dynamic systems. It begins with athorough introduction, where the general research domain, the problems, and ways of their solutions are discussed. The book then progresses systematically by first covering the theoretical aspects before tackling the applications. Inthe application section, a software library is desc ribed, which contains discrete EFDS identification methods elaborated during fundamental research of the book. Extremal Fuzzy Dynamic Systems will be of interest to theoreticiansinterested in modeling fuzzy processes, to researchers who use fuzzy statisti cs, as well as practitioners from different disciplines whose research interests include abnormal, extreme and monotone processes in nature and society.Graduate students could also find this book useful

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The purpose of this book is to provide a sound introduction to the study of real-world phenomena that possess random variation. It describes how to set up and analyse models of real-life phenomena that involve elements of chance.Motivation comes from everyday experiences of probability, such as that of a dice or cards, the idea of fairness in games of chance, and the random ways in which, say, birthdays are shared or particular events arise. Applicationsinclude branching processes, random walks, Mark ov chains, queues, renewal theory, and Brownian motion. This popular second edition textbook contains many worked examples and several chapters have been updated and expanded. Somemathematical knowledge is assumed. The reader should have the ability to wo rk with unions, intersections and complements of sets a good facility with calculus, including integration, sequences and series and appreciation of thelogical development of an argument. Probability Models is designed to aid students studying probability as part of an undergraduate course on mathematics or mathematics and statistics
