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

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

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

Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In this book, the author leads the reader, step by step and without any advanced mathematics, to a clear understanding of the foundations of modern elementary particle physics and cosmology. He also addresses current andcontroversial questions on top ics such as string theory. The book containsgentle introductions to the theories of special and general relativity, and also classical and quantum field theory. The essential aspects of these conceptsare understood with the help of simple calculations for example, the force of gravity as a consequence of the curvature of the space-time. Also treated are the Big Bang, dark matter and dark energy, as well as the presently knowninteractions of elementary particles: electrodynamics, the strong and the weak in teractions including the Higgs boson. Finally, the book sketches as yet speculative theories: Grand Unification theories, supersymmetry, string theory andthe idea of additional dimensions of space-time. Since no higher mathematical or physics expertise is required, the book is also suitable for college and university students at the beginning of their studies. Hobby astronomers andother science enthusiasts seeking a deeper insight than can be found in popular treatments will also appreciate this unique bo ok

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

Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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. Stewart: SelectedWorks with Commentaries will appeal to graduate students, practitioners, and researchers in computational linear algebra and the history of mathematics

Blackjack is among the most popular of the casino table games, one where astute choices of playing strategy can create an advantage for the player.Risk and Reward analyz es the game in depth, pinpointing not just its optimal strategies but also its financial performance, in terms of both expected cash flow and associated risk. The book begins by describing the strategies and theirperformance in a clear, straightforward st yle. The presentation is self-contained, nonmathematical, and accessible to readers at all levels of playing skill, from the novice to the blackjack expert. Careful attention is also given tosimplified, but still nearly optimal strategies that are easier to use in a casino. Unlike other books in the literature the author then derives each aspect of the strategy mathematically, to justify its claim to optimality. Thederivations mostly use algebra and calculus, although some require more advanced analysis d etailed in supporting appendices. For easy comprehension, formulae are translated into tables and graphs through extensive computation. Thisbook will appeal to everyone interested in blackjack: those with mathematical training intrigued by its application to this popular game as well as all players seeking to improve their performance. N. Richard Werthamer is retired froma successful career as a scientist and executive, most recently as the Executive Officer of the American Physical Society. He graduated summa cum laude from Harvard College before receiving his PhD in Theoretical Physics from theUniversity of California at Berkley. His original research has been published extensively in the worlds leading journals. In this book, he applies his scientific background to the analysis of blackjack

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

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.

Note:During the past decade there has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it have come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge ofunderstanding these data ha s led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are oftenexpressed with different terminology. This book d escribes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples aregiven, with a liberal use of color graphics. It is a valuable resource f or statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book's coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervisedlearning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification tre es and boosting---the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in theoriginal, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression and path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for``wide'' data (p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman are professors of statistics at Stanford University. They are prominent researchers in thisarea: Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling softw are and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves andsurfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap. Friedman is the co-inve

Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:QuasiMonte Carlo methods have become an increasingly popular alternative to Monte Carlo methods over the last two decades. Their successful implementation on practical problems, especially in finance, has motivated thedevelopment of several new resea rch areas within this field to which practitioners and researchers from various disciplines currently contribute. This book presents essential tools for using quasiMonte Carlo sampling in practice.The first part of the book focuses on issues related to Mo nte Carlo methodsuniform and non-uniform random number generation, variance reduction techniquesbut the material is presented to prepare the readers for the next step,which is to replace the random sampling inherent to Monte Carlo by quasirandom sampling. The second part of the book deals with this next step. Several aspects of quasi-Monte Carlo methods are covered, including constructions,randomizations, the use of ANOVA decompositions, and the concept of effective dimension. The third part of the book i s devoted to applications in finance and more advanced statistical tools like Markov chain Monte Carlo and sequentialMonte Carlo, with a discussion of their quasiMonte Carlo counterpart. The prerequisites for reading this book are a basic knowledge of sta tistics and enough mathematical maturity to follow through the various techniques usedthroughout the book. This text is aimed at graduate students in statistics, management science, operations research, engineering, and applied mathematics. It should also be useful to practitioners who want to learn more about MonteCarlo and quasiMonte Carlo methods and researchers interested in an up-to-date guide to these methods.

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:Symmetry [electronic resource] : Cultural-historical and ontological aspects of science-arts relations The natural and man-made world in an interdisciplinary approach

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:All of us have a certain conception of what symmetry means, at least as far as its main forms are concerned (like mirror-reflection or rotation, but only rarely translation). What are the common features of these transformations?How can one generalis e them to explain similar phenomena that appear in different arts and sciences? What other forms of symmetry can we include in the scope of our study by the application of these generalised rules? How can a commonphenomenon lend possible solutions from on e discipline to another? Did you know that symmetry is a universal concept that has appeared in all cultures since prehistoric times, accompanying us through the history of mankind? Whatimportant role have asymmetries like the one-handedness of the neutri no played in the formation of matter, from the assumed Big Bang through to the asymmetries of the human brain? This book tries to explain these and a number ofrelated questions. This is the first comprehensive book on the topic since the publication of H. Weyls popular book on symmetry more than fifty years ago. It is relevant to almost all fields of science where symmetry appears as aphenomenon or is applied as a method, and where the concept is present in contemporary sciences, humanities and arts. Symm etry used to be a fundamental phenomenon in crystallography, where its basic concept was elaborated, inmorphological biology, and of course in mathematics, which provided its exact description. In the last half century symmetry (and symmetry breaking) has become a leading principle in physics, in all sciences that deal with thestructure of matter, as well as in the biochemistry of proteins, the study of the genetic code, brain research (where functional asymmetries have been revealed), psychology, and in developing architectural structures and in businessdecision-making, to name but a few examples. This book seeks to find common regularities among these apparently disparate phenomena. It covers most

Note:Factorial design plays a fundamental role in efficient and economic experimentation with multiple input variables and is extremely popular in various fields of application, including engineering, agriculture, medicine and lifesciences. Factorial expe riments are often used in case studies in quality management and Design for Six Sigma (DFSS). The last twenty years have witnessed a significant growth of interest in optimal factorial designs, under possiblemodel uncertainty, via the minimum aberration a nd related criteria. The present book gives, for the first time in book form, a comprehensive and up-to-date account of this modern theory. Many major classes of designs are covered in thebook. While maintaining a high level of mathematical rigor, it also provides extensive design tables for research and practical purposes. In order to equip the readers with the necessary background, some foundational concepts andresults are developed in Chapter 2. Apart from being useful to researchers and practitioners, the book can form the core of a graduate level course in experimental design. It can also be used for courses in combinatorial designs orcombinatorial mathematics. Rahul Mukerjee is a Professor of Statistics at the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta . Formerly, he was a Professor at the Indian Statistical Institute. He is a co-author of four other researchmonographs including two from Springer and one from Wiley. A Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and the Indian National Science Aca demy, Professor Mukerjee has served on the editorial boards of several internationaljournals.

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:Prime Numbers [electronic resource] : A Computational Perspective
Author(s): Richard Crandall
Carl Pomerance
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:Prime numbers beckon to the beginner, as the basic notion of primality is accessible even to children. Yet, some of the simplest questions about primes have confounded humankind for millennia. In the new edition of this highlysuccessful book, Richard Crandall and Carl Pomerance have provided updated material on theoretical, computational, and algorithmic fronts. New results discussed include the AKS test for recognizing primes, computational evidence forthe Riemann hypothesis, a fast binary algorithm for the greatest common divisor, nonuniform fast Fourier transforms, and more. The authors also list new computational records and survey new developments in the theory of prime numbers,including the magnificent proof that there are arbitrarily long arit hmetic progressions of primes, and the final resolution of the Catalan problem. Numerous exercises have been added. Richard Crandall currently holds the title of AppleDistinguished Scientist, having previously been Apple's Chief Cryptographer, the Chief S cientist at NeXT, Inc., and recipient of the Vollum Chair of Science at Reed College. Though he publishes in quantum physics, biology, mathematics,and chemistry, and holds various engineering patents, his primary interest is interdisciplinary scientific c omputation. Carl Pomerance is the recipient of the Chauvenet and Conant Prizes for expository mathematical writing. He iscurrently a mathematics professor at Dartmouth College, having previously been at the University of Georgia and Bell Labs. A popular l ecturer, he is well known for his research in computational number theory, his efforts havingproduced important algorithms now in use. From the reviews of the first edition: Destined to become a definitive textbook conveying the most modern computational ideas about prime numbers and factoring, this book will stand as anexcellent reference for this kind of computation, and thus be of interest to both educators and researchers. <- L'Enseignement Math

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
