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:Optimization for Industrial Problems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Patrick Bangert
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Industrial optimization lies on the crossroads between mathematics, computer science, engineering and management. This book presents these fields as a conversation between the theory of mathematics and computer science and casestudies demonstrating e ngineering and management. Most of all, the case studies illustrate what may reasonably be expected from an optimization project in a commercial enterprise. While many other books treat some of the aspects ofthis book, it is practical and may be used as a manual for conducting an optimization project. This book will not make its reader into a mathematician but it will help him to improve his plant. The book requires no mathematical ortechnical background beyond a good high school training all else is addr essed within. It is aimed at managers or engineers of industrial facilities and is also suitable for university students and their professors as an illustrationof how academic material may be used in real life. The book includes 19 case studies that were conducted in real plants. They include chemical plants, fossil power plants, wind power plants, nuclear power plants, oil refineries, oilproduction plants, injection molding fascilities and retail industry shops. All case studies were conducted by the aut hor in cooperation and co-authorship with some of the leading industrial enterprises including RWE, Vattenfall, EDF,PetroChina, Vestolit, Sasol, and Hella

Title:For Better or For Worse? Collaborative Couples in the Sciences [electronic resource]
Author(s): Annette Lykknes
Donald L Opitz
Brigitte Van Tiggelen
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this volume, a distinguished set of international scholars examine the nature of collaboration between life partners in the sciences, with particular attention to the ways in which personal and professional dynamics can fosteror inhibit scientific practice. Breaking from traditional gender analyses which focus on divisions of labor and the assignment of credit, the studies scrutinize collaboration as a variable process between partners living in thenineteenth and twentieth centuries who were marri ed and divorced, heterosexual and homosexual, aristocratic and working-class and politically right and left. The contributors analyze cases shaped by their particular geographicallocations, ranging from retreat settings like the English countryside and Wo ods Hole, Massachusetts, to university laboratories and urbancenters in Berlin, Stockholm, Geneva and London. The volume demonstrates how the terms andmeanings of collaboration, variably shaped by disciplinary imperatives, cultural mores, and the agency o f the collaborators themselves, illuminate critical intellectual and institutional developments in the modern sciences

Title:Statistical Design [electronic resource]
Author(s): George Casella
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:Although statistical design is one of the oldest branches of statistics, its importance is ever increasing, especially in the face of the data flood that often faces statisticians. It is important to recognize the appropriatedesign, and to understand how to effectively implement it, being aware that the default settings from a computer package can easily provide an incorrect analysis. The goal of this book is to describe the principles that drive gooddesign, paying attention to both the theoretical b ackground and the problems arising from real experimental situations. Designs are motivated through actual experiments, ranging from the timeless agricultural randomized complete block,to microarray experiments, which naturally lead to split plot designs and balanced incomplete blocks. George Casella is Distinguished Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Florida. He is active in many aspectsof statistics, having contributed to theoretical statistics in the areas of decision theory and statistical confidence, to environmental statistics, and has more recently concentrated efforts in statistical genomics. He also maintainsactive research interests in the theory and application of Monte Carlo and other computationally intensive metho ds. He is listed as an ISI Highly Cited Researcher. In other capacities, Professor Casella has served as Theory andMethods Editor of the Journal of the American Statistical Association, 1996-1999, Executive Editor of Statistical Science, 2001-2004, and Co -Editor of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B, 2009-2012. He has served onthe Board of Mathematical Sciences of the National Research Council, 1999-2003, and many committees of both the American Statistical Association and the Institut e of Mathematical Statistics. Professor Casella has co-authored fivetextbooks: Variance Components, 1992 Theory of Point Estimation, Second Edition, 1998 Monte Carlo Statistical Methods, Second Edit
