Title:Holy Sci-Fi! [electronic resource] : Where Science Fiction and Religion Intersect
Author(s): Paul J Nahin
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Can a computer have a soul? Are religion and science mutually exclusive?Is there really such a thing as free will?If you could time travel to visit Jesus, would you (and should you)?For hundreds of years, philosophers,scientists, and science fiction writers have pondered these questions and many more. In Holy Sci-Fi!, popular writer Paul Nahin explores the fertile and sometimes uneasy relationship between science fiction and religion. With a scopespanning the history of religion, philosophy, and lite rature, Nahin follows religious themes in science fiction from Feynman to Foucault, and from Asimov to Aristotle. An intriguing journey through popular and well-loved books andstories, Holy Sci-Fi! shows how sci-fi has informed humanity's attitudes toward s our faiths, our future, and ourselves

Title:Probability Theory [electronic resource] : A Comprehensive Course
Author(s): Achim Klenke
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This second edition of the popular textbook contains a comprehensive course in modern probability theory. Overall, probabilistic concepts play an increasingly important role in mathematics, physics, biology, financial engineeringand computer science. They help us in understanding magnetism, amorphous media, genetic diversity and the perils of random developments at financial markets, and they guide us in constructing more efficient algorithms. To addressthese concepts, the title covers a wide variet y of topics, many of which are not usually found in introductory textbooks, such as: limit theorems for sums of random variables martingales percolation Markov chains andelectrical networks construction of stochastic processes Poisson point process and infinite divisibility large deviation principles and statistical physics Brownian motion stochastic integral and stochasticdifferential equations. The theory is developed rigorously and in a self-contained way, with the chapters on measure theory interlaced with the probabilistic chapters in order to display the power of the abstract concepts inprobability theory. This second edition has been carefully extended and includes many new features. It contains updated figures (over 50), computer simulat ions and some difficult proofs have been made more accessible. A wealth ofexamples and more than 270 exercises as well as biographic details of key mathematicians support and enliven the presentation. It will be of use to students and researchers in mathe matics and statistics in physics, computer science,economics and biology

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The first derivative of a particle coordinate means its velocity, the second means its acceleration, but what does a fractional order derivative mean? Where does it come from, how does it work, where does it lead to? Thetwo-volume book written on hig h didactic level answers these questions. Fractional Derivatives for Physicists and Engineers The first volume contains a clear introduction into such a modern branch of analysis as the fractionalcalculus. The second develops a wide panorama of applicatio ns of the fractional calculus to various physical problems. This book recovers new perspectives in front of the reader dealing with turbulence and semiconductors, plasma andthermodynamics, mechanics and quantum optics, nanophysics and astrophysics. The bo ok is addressed to students, engineers and physicists, specialists in theory of probability and statistics, in mathematical modeling and numericalsimulations, to everybody who doesn't wish to stay apart from the new mathematical methods becoming more and more popular. Prof. Vladimir V. UCHAIKIN is a known Russian scientist and pedagogue, a Honored Worker of Russian High School,a member of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences. He is the author of about three hundreds articles and more than a dozen books (mostly in Russian) in Cosmic ray physics, Mathematical physics, Levy stable statistics, Monte Carlomethods with applications to anomalous processes in complex systems of various levels: from quantum dots to the Milky Way galaxy

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

Title:Deterministic Global Optimization [electronic resource] : Geometric Branch-and-bound Methods and their Applications
Author(s): Daniel Scholz
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph deals with a general class of solution approaches in deterministic global optimization, namely the geometric branch-and-bound methods which are popular algorithms, for instance, in Lipschitzian optimization, d.c.programming, and interv al analysis.It alsointroduces a new concept for the rate of convergence and analyzes several bounding operations reported in the literature, from the theoretical as well as from the empirical point of view.Furthermore, extensions of the prototype algorith m for multicriteria global optimization problems as well as mixed combinatorial optimization problems are considered. Numerical examples based on facility location problems support thetheory. Applications of geometric branch-and-bound methods, namely the circle detection problem in image processing, the integrated scheduling and location makespan problem, and the median line location problem in the three-dimensionalspace are also presented. The book is intended for both researchers and students in the are as of mathematics, operations research, engineering, and computer science

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:New technologies allow us to handle increasingly large datasets, while monitoring devices are becoming ever more sophisticated. This high-tech progress produces statistical units sampled over finer and finer grids. As themeasurement points become clo ser, the data can be considered as observations varying over a continuum. This intrinsic continuous data (called functional data) can be found in various fields of science, including biomechanics,chemometrics, econometrics, environmetrics, geophysics, med icine, etc. The failure of standard multivariate statistics to analyze such functional data has led the statistical community to develop appropriate statistical methodologies,called Functional Data Analysis (FDA). Today, FDA is certainly one of the most m otivating and popular statistical topics due to its impact on crucial societal issues (health, environment, etc). This is why the FDA statistical communityis rapidly growing, as are the statistical developments . Therefore, it is necessary to organize reg ular meetings in order to provide a state-of-art review of the recent advances in this fascinating area. This book collects selectedand extended papers presented at the second International Workshop of Functional and Operatorial Statistics (Santander, Spa in, 16-18 June, 2011), in which many outstanding experts on FDA will present the most relevant advances inthis pioneering statistical area. Undoubtedly, these proceedings will be an essential resource for academic researchers, master students, engineers, and practitioners not only in statistics but also in numerous related fields ofapplication.

Note:The importance of having efficient and effective methods for data mining and knowledge discovery (DM) is rapidly growing. This is due to the wide use of fast and affordable computing power and data storage media and also thegathering of huge amounts of data in almost all aspects of human activity and interest. While numerous methods have been developed, the focus of this book presents algorithms and applications using one popular method that has beenformulated in terms of binary attributes, i.e., by Boolean functions defined on several attributes that are easily transformed into rules that can express new knowledge. This book presents methods that deal with key data mining andknowledge discovery issues in an intuitive manner, in a natural sequence, a nd in a way that can be easily understood and interpreted by a wide array of experts and end users. The presentation provides a unique perspective into theessence of some fundamental DM issues, many of which come from important real life applications such as breast cancer diagnosis. Applications and algorithms are accompanied by extensive experimental results and are presented in a waysuch that anyone with a minimum background in mathematics and computer science can benefit from the exposition. Rigor in m athematics and algorithmic development is not compromised and each chapter systematically offers some possibleextensions for future research

Note:Published in honor of his 70th birthday, this volume explores and celebrates the work of G.W. (Pete) Stewart, a world-renowned expert in computational linear algebra. It is widely accepted that Stewart is the successor to JamesWilkinson, the first gi ant in the field, taking up the perturbation theory research that Wilkinson so ably began and using it as a foundation for algorithmic insights. Stewarts results on rounding error in numerical computationsprovided basic understanding of floating-point com putation. His results on perturbation of eigensystems, pseudo-inverses, least-squares problems, and matrix factorizations are fundamental to numerical practice today. His algorithms forthe singular value decomposition, updating and downdating matrix facto rizations, and the eigenproblem broke new ground and are still widely used in an increasing number of applications. Stewarts papers, widely cited, arecharacterized by elegance in theorems and algorithms and clear, concise, and beautiful exposition. His si x popular textbooks are excellent sources of knowledge and history. Stewart is a member of the National Academy of Engineering andhas received numerous additional honors, including the Bauer Prize. Key features of this volume include: * Forty-four of Stew arts most influential research papers in two subject areas: matrix algorithms and rounding and perturbationtheory * A biography of Stewart * A complete list of Stewarts publications, students, and honors * Selected photographs * Commentaries on Stewarts w orks in collaboration with leading experts in the field G.W.

Note:Fuzzy logics are many-valued logics that are well suited to reasoning in the context of vagueness. They provide the basis for the wider field of Fuzzy Logic, encompassing diverse areas such as fuzzy control, fuzzy databases, andfuzzy mathematics. Thi s book provides an accessible and up-to-date introduction to this fast-growing and increasingly popular area. It focuses in particular on the development and applications of proof-theoretic presentations offuzzy logics the result of more than ten years of intensive work by researchers in the area, including the authors. In addition to providing alternative elegant presentations of fuzzy logics, proof-theoretic methods are useful foraddressing theoretical problems (including key standard completeness resul ts) and developing efficient deduction and decision algorithms. Proof-theoretic presentations also place fuzzy logics in the broader landscape of non-classicallogics, revealing deep relations with other logics studied in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Philosophy. The book builds methodically from the semantic origins of fuzzy logics to proof-theoretic presentations such as Hilbert andGentzen systems, introducing both theoretical and practical applications of these presentations

Title:Bayesian Computation with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jim Albert
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:There has been a dramatic growth in the development and application of Bayesian inferential methods. Some of this growth is due to the availability of powerful simulation-based algorithms to summarize posterior distributions.There has been also a gro wing interest in the use of the system R for statistical analyses. R's open source nature, free availability, and large number of contributor packages have made R the software of choice for many statisticiansin education and industry. Bayesian Computation with R introduces Bayesian modeling by the use of computation using the R language. The early chapters present the basic tenets of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one andtwo-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian computational methods such as Lapl ace's method, rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are illustrated in the context of a random effects model. The construction and implementation ofMarkov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These simulation-based algorithms are implemente d for a variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and binary response regression, hierarchical modeling, order-restrictedinference, and robust modeling. Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computinglanguage, is described with several illustrative examples. This book is a suitable companion book for an introductory course on Bayesian methods and is valuable to the statistical practitioner who wishes to learn more about the Rlanguage and Bayesian methodology. The LearnBayes package, written by the author and available from the CRAN website, contains all of the R functions described in the book. The s econd edition contains several new topics such as the useof mixtures of conjugate priors and the use of Zellners g priors to choose between models in linear regression. There are more illustrations o

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

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:One of the most intriguing questions facing modern science is the inner workings of the human brain. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is a powerful tool used to study the human brain in action. The data produced frommapping the active pro cesses within the brain present many challenges to statisticians, computer scientists, engineers and other data analysts, due to their complex structure and the ever-increasing sophistication of the scientificquestions being posed by researchers. This boo k represents the first in-depth discussion of statistical methodology, which it couples with an introduction to the scientific background needed to understand the data. Starting from thebasic science - where fMRI data come from, why they are so complicate d, and the role statistics can play in designing and interpreting experiments - the book gives a detailed survey of the numerous methods that have been applied in thelast fifteen years. The analysis of fMRI data features many of the major issues of concer n in modern statistics, such as high dimensionality, multiple testing, and visualization. The array of techniques examined in the book ranges fromthe simple two-sample t-test and the general linear model to hierarchical spatiotemporal models, multivariate methods such as principal components analysis, and Bayesian approaches as they have been used in fMRI. Software, includingdescriptions of the most popular freeware packages and their capabilities, is also discussed. This book offers researchers who are i nterested in the analysis of fMRI data a detailed discussion from a statistical perspective that coversthe entire process from data collection to the graphical presentation of results. The book is a valuable resource for statisticians who want to learn mo re about this growing field, and for neuroscientists who want to learn more abouthow their data can be analyzed. Nicole A.

Note:There has been a dramatic growth in the development and application of Bayesian inferential methods. Some of this growth is due to the availability of powerful simulation-based algorithms to summarize posterior distributions.There has been also a gro wing interest in the use of the system R for statistical analyses. R's open source nature, free availability, and large number of contributor packages have made R the software of choice for many statisticiansin education and industry. Bayesian Computation with R introduces Bayesian modeling by the use of computation using the R language. The early chapters present the basic tenets of Bayesian thinking by use of familiar one andtwo-parameter inferential problems. Bayesian computational methods such as Lapl ace's method, rejection sampling, and the SIR algorithm are illustrated in the context of a random effects model. The construction and implementation ofMarkov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) methods is introduced. These simulation-based algorithms are implemente d for a variety of Bayesian applications such as normal and binary response regression, hierarchical modeling, order-restrictedinference, and robust modeling. Algorithms written in R are used to develop Bayesian tests and assess Bayesian models by use of the posterior predictive distribution. The use of R to interface with WinBUGS, a popular MCMC computinglanguage, is described with several illustrative examples. This book is a suitable companion book for an introductory course on Bayesian methods and is valuable to the statistical practitioner who wishes to learn more about the Rlanguage and Bayesian methodology. The LearnBayes package, written by the author and available from the CRAN website, contains all of the R functions described in the book. Jim A lbert is Professor of Statistics at Bowling Green StateUniversity. He is Fellow of the American Statistical Association and is past editor of The American Statistician. His books include Ordinal Data Mo

Title:An Introduction to Queueing Theory and Matrix-Analytic Methods [electronic resource]
Author(s): L Breuer
D Baum
Date:2005
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The textbook contains the records of a two-semester course on queueing theory, including an introduction to matrix-analytic methods. The course is directed to last year undergraduate and first year graduate students of appliedprobability and computer science, who have already completed an introduction to probability theory. Its purpose is to present material that is close enough to concrete queueing models and their applications, while providing a soundmathematical foundation for their analysis. A pr ominent part of the book will be devoted to matrix-analytic methods. This is a collection of approaches which extend the applicability of Markov renewal methods to queueing theory byintroducing a finite number of auxiliary states. For the embedded Markov chains this leads to transition matrices in block form resembling the structure of classical models. Matrix-analytic methods have become quite popular in queueingtheory during the last twenty years. The intention to include these in a students' introducti on to queueing theory has been the main motivation for the authors to write the present book. Its aim is a presentation of the most importantmatrix-analytic concepts like phase-type distributions, Markovian arrival processes, the GI/PH/1 and BMAP/G/1 queu es as well as QBDs and discrete time approaches

Title:Nonlinear Optimization with Financial Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michael Bartholomew-Biggs
Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book introduces the key ideas behind practical nonlinear optimization. Computational financean increasingly popular area of mathematics degree programmesis combined here with the study of an important class ofnumerical techniques. The financia l content of the book is designed to be relevant and interesting to specialists. However, this materialwhich occupies about one-third of the textis also sufficiently accessible to allow thebook to be used on optimization courses of a more general nature. The essentials of most currently popular algorithms are described and their performance is demonstrated on a range of optimization problems arising in financialmathematics. Theoretical convergence properties of methods are stated and formal proofs are p rovided in enough cases to be instructive rather than overwhelming. Practical behaviour of methods is illustrated by computationalexamples and discussions of efficiency, accuracy and computational costs. Supporting software for the examples and exercise s is available (but the text does not require the reader to use or understand these particular codes). The author has been active in optimization for over thirty years in algorithm development and application and in teaching and research supervision. Audi ence The book is aimed at lecturers and students (undergraduate and postgraduate)in mathematics, computational finance and related subjects. It is also useful for researchers and practitioners who need a good introduction to nonlinear optimization
