Date:2012
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 book offers a new approach to information theory that is more general then the classical approach by Shannon. The classical definition of information is given for an alphabet of symbols or for a set of mutually exclusivepropositions (a partition of the probability space ) with corresponding probabilities adding up to 1. The new definition is given for an arbitrary cover of , i.e. for a set of possibly overlapping propositions. The generalizedinformation concept is called novelty and it is accompa nied by two new concepts derived from it, designated as information and surprise, which describe opposite versions of novelty, information being related more to classicalinformation theory and surprise being related more to the classical concept of statis tical significance. In the discussion of these three concepts and their interrelations several properties or classes of covers are defined, which turnout to be lattices. The book also presents applications of these new concepts, mostly in statistics and i n neuroscience

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The recent emergence of Local Binary Patterns (LBP) has led to significant progress in applying texture methods to various computer vision problems and applications. The focus of this research has broadened from 2D textures to 3Dtextures and spatiote mporal (dynamic) textures. Also, where texture was once utilized for applications such as remote sensing, industrial inspection and biomedical image analysis, the introduction of LBP-based approaches have providedoutstanding results in problems relating t o face and activity analysis, with future scope for face and facial expression recognition, biometrics, visual surveillance and video analysis. Computer Vision Using Local Binary Patternsprovides a detailed description of the LBP methods and their varian ts both in spatial and spatiotemporal domains. This comprehensive reference also provides an excellent overview as to how texture methods can be utilized for solvingdifferent kinds of computer vision and image analysis problems. Source codes of the basic LBP algorithms, demonstrations, some databases and a comprehensive LBP bibliography can be found from an accompanying web site. Topics include: - Local binary patterns and their variants in spatial and spatiotemporal domains - Texture classification and s egmentation, description of interest regions - Applications in image retrieval and 3D recognition - Recognition andsegmentation of dynamic textures - Background subtraction, recognition of actions - Face analysis using still images and image sequences, vi sual speech recognition - LBP in various applications Written by pioneers of LBP, this bookis an essential resource for researchers, professional engineers and graduate students in computer vision, image analysis and pattern recognition. The book will al so be of interest to all those who work with specific applications ofmachine vision

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The detection and neutralization of unexploded ordnance (UXO) has been of major concern for very many decades at least since the First World War. UXO continues to be the subject of intensive research in many fields of science.While today's headlines emphasize the mayhem resulting from the placement of improvised explosive devices (IEDs), humanitarian landmine clearing continues to draw significant global attention as well. In many countries of the world,landmines threaten the population and hinder re construction and fast, efficient utilization of large areas of the mined land in the aftermath of military conflicts. The reports in this volume, written by world leaders from academia,Government and industry, describe how basic ideas from mathematics, ra dar, sonar and chemistry can be combined with ongoing improvements in hardware and computation, as well as very new advances in multisensor data fusion, to yield thepromise of more sophisticated and accurate UXO detection and identification capabilities t han currently exist

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a thorough introduction to the most important topics in data mining and machine learning. It begins with a detailed review of classical function estimation and proceeds with chapters on nonlinear regression,classification, and ensemble m ethods. The final chapters focus on clustering, dimension reduction, variable selection, and multiple comparisons. All these topics have undergone extraordinarily rapid development in recent years and thistreatment offers a modern perspective emphasizing the most recent contributions. The presentation of foundational results is detailed and includes many accessible proofs not readily available outside original sources. While theorientation is conceptual and theoretical, the main points are regularly reinf orced by computational comparisons. Intended primarily as a graduate level textbook for statistics, computer science, and electrical engineering students,this book assumes only a strong foundation in undergraduate statistics and mathematics, and facility with using R packages. The text has a wide variety of problems, many of an exploratory nature. There are numerous computed examples,complete with code, so that further computations can be carried out readily. The book also serves as a handbook for researc hers who want a conceptual overview of the central topics in data mining and machine learning. Bertrand Clarkeis a Professor of Statistics in the Department of Medicine, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, and the Center for Computational Scienc es at the University of Miami. He has been on the Editorial Board of the Journal of theAmerican Statistical Association, the Journal of Statistical Planning and Inference, and Statistical Papers.

Title:Introduction to Nonparametric Estimation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alexandre B Tsybakov
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:Methods of nonparametric estimation are located at the core of modern statistical science. The aim of this book is to give a short but mathematically self-contained introduction to the theory of nonparametric estimation. Theemphasis is on the constru ction of optimal estimators therefore the concepts of minimax optimality and adaptivity, as well as the oracle approach, occupy the central place in the book. This is a concise text developed from lecturenotes and ready to be used for a course on the grad uate level. The main idea is to introduce the fundamental concepts of the theory while maintaining the exposition suitable for a first approach in the field. Therefore, the results arenot always given in the most general form but rather under assumptions that lead to shorter or more elegant proofs. The book has three chapters. Chapter 1 presents basic nonparametric regression and density estimators and analyzestheir properties. Chapter 2 is devoted to a detailed treatment of minimax lower bounds. Chapter 3 develops more advanced topics: Pinsker's theorem, oracle inequalities, Stein shrinkage, and sharp minimax adaptivity

Title:Applied Partial Differential Equations [electronic resource] : A Visual Approach
Author(s): Peter A Markowich
Date:2007
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 selected topics in science and engineering from an applied-mathematics point of view. The described natural, socioeconomic, and engineering phenomena are modeled by partial differential equations that relatestate variables such as mass, velocity, and energy to their spatial and temporal variations. Typically, these equations are highly nonlinear in many cases they are systems, and they represent challenges even for the most modern andsophisticated mathematical and numerical-analyti c techniques. The selected topics reflect the longtime scientific interests of the author. They include flows of fluids and gases, granular-material flows, biological processes such aspattern formation on animal skins, kinetics of rarified gases, free bou ndaries, semiconductor devices, and socioeconomic processes. Each topic is briefly introduced in its scientific or engineering context, followed by a presentationof the mathematical models in the form of partial differential equations with a discussion of their basic mathematical properties. The author illustrates each chapter by a series of his own high-quality photographs, which demonstratethat partial differential equations are powerful tools for modeling a large variety of phenomena influencing our da ily lives

Title:Statistics and Analysis of Shapes [electronic resource]
Author(s): Hamid Krim
Anthony Yezzi
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The subject of pattern analysis and recognition pervades many aspects of our daily lives, including user authentication in banking, object retrieval from databases in the consumer sector, and the omnipresent surveillance andsecurity measures around s ensitive areas. Shape analysis, a fundamental building block in many approaches to these applications, is also used in statistics, biomedical applications (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), and many other relateddisciplines. With contributions from some of the leading experts and pioneers in the field, this self-contained, unified volume is the first comprehensive treatment of theory, methods, and algorithms, available in a single resource,without the typical quagmire of vast information scattered over a wide body of literature. Developments are discussed from a rapidly increasing number of research papers in diverse fields, including the mathematical and physicalsciences, engineering, and medicine. The initial chapters explore the statistical modeling of land marks while subsequent chapters address the probabilistic modeling of entire shapes. The latter part of the book, with the exception ofthe last two chapters, concentrates on case studies as well as implementational and practical challenges in real systems . Extensive illustrations throughout help readers overcome the sometimes terse technical details of the geometricand probabilistic formalism. Knowledge of advanced calculus and basic statistics and probability theory are the only prerequisites for the rea der. Statistics and Analysis of Shapes will be an essential learning kit for statisticalresearchers, engineers, scientists, medical researchers, and students seeking a rapid introduction to the field. It may be used as a textbook for a graduate-level spec ial topics course in statistics and signal/image analysis, or for anintensive short course on shape analysis and modeling. The state-of-the-art techniques presented will also be useful for experienced r

Note:All the data was out there to warn us of this impending attack, why didn't we see it? This was a frequently asked question in the weeks and months after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon onSeptember 11, 2001. In the wak e of the attacks, statisticians moved quickly to become part of the national response to the global war on terror. This book is an overview of the emerging research program at the intersection of nationalsecurity and statistical sciences. A wide range of talented researchers address issues in . Syndromic Surveillance---How do we detect and recognize bioterrorist events? . Modeling and Simulation---How do we better understand andexplain complex processes so that decision makers can take the best course of action? . Biometric Authentication---How do we pick the terrorist out of the crowd of faces or better match the passport to the traveler? . Game Theory---Howdo we understand the rules that terrorists are playing by? This book includes technical treatments of statistical issues that will be of use to quantitative researchers as well as more general examinations of quantitative approaches tocounterterrorism that will be accessible to decision makers with stronger policy backgrounds. Dr. Alyson G. Wilson is a statistician and the technical lead for DoD programs in the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos NationalLaboratory. Dr. Gregory D. Wilson is a rhetorician and ethnographer in the Statistical Sciences Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Dr. Dav id H. Olwell is chair of the Department of Systems Engineering at the Naval PostgraduateSchool in Monterey, California

Title:Modern Multidimensional Scaling [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Ingwer Borg
Patrick J. F Groenen
Date:2005
Edition:Second Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides a comprehensive treatment of multidimensional scaling (MDS), a family of statistical techniques for analyzing the structure of (dis)similarity data. Such data are widespread, including, for example,intercorrelations of survey items, direct ratings on the similarity on choice objects, or trade indices for a set of countries. MDS represents the data as distances among points in a geometric space of low dimensionality. This map canhelp to see patterns in the data that are not obvious f rom the data matrices. MDS is also used as a psychological model for judgments of similarity and preference. This book may be used as an introduction to MDS for students inpsychology, sociology, and marketing. The prerequisite is an elementary background in statistics. The book is also well suited for a variety of advanced courses on MDS topics. All the mathematics required for more advanced topics isdeveloped systematically. This second edition is not only a complete overhaul of its predecessor, but also adds some 140 pages of new material. Many chapters are revised or have sections reflecting new insights and developments in MDS.There are two new chapters, one on asymmetric models and the other on unfolding. There are also numerous exercises that help t he reader to practice what he or she has learned, and to delve deeper into the models and its intricacies.These exercises make it easier to use this edition in a course. All data sets used in the book can be downloaded from the web. The appendix on comput er programs has also been updated and enlarged to reflect the state of the art. IngwerBorg is Scientific Director at the Center for Survey Methodology (ZUMA) in Mannheim, Germany, and Professor of Psychology at the University of Giessen, Germany. He has a uthored or edited 14 books and numerous articles on data analysis,survey research, theory construction, and various substantive topics of psychology. He also served as president of several professional
