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 |

Author(s): |
Barry B Luokkala |
Date: | 2014 |
Publisher: | New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer |
Size: | 1 online resource |
Note: | How does Einsteins description of space and time compare with Dr. Who? Can James Bond really escape from an armor-plated railroad car by cutting through the floor with a laser concealed in a wristwatch? What would it take tocreate a fully-intelligent android, such as Star Treks Commander Data? How might we discover intelligent civilizations on other planets in the galaxy? Is human teleportation possible? Will our technological society ever reach thepoint at which it becomes lawful to discriminate on the basis of genetic information, as in the movie GATTACA? Exploring Science Through Science Fiction addresses these and other interesting questions, using science fiction as aspringboard for discussing fundamental science concepts and cutting-edge scienc e research. The book is designed as a primary text for a college-level course which should appeal to students in the fine arts and humanities as well as toscience and engineering students. It includes references to original research papers, landmark scien tific publications and technical documents, as well as a broad range of science literature at a more popular level. With over 180references to specific scenes in 130 sci-fi movies and TV episodes, spanning over 100 years of cinematic history, it should be an enjoyable read for anyone with an interest in science and science fiction |

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 |

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 |

Note: | The world as it is viewed from modern physics and cosmology has many strange and unexpected features. Often these are in stark contrast with our everyday experience or our preconceptions, such as the concept of space and time asfinite and changeable. Nevertheless it is this strange world which is the fundamental basis of our existence. Therefore modern science also has a few things to say about the age-old questions: Who are we? Where do we come from? Where are we going? The author, an experienced s cientist and teacher, presents the knowledge that we have about our worldfor non-experts. He takes us on a journey through cosmology and the quantum world of elementary particles. Andhe sketches the impact of the insights gained into philosophical assumpt ions and religious beliefs in these disciplines. In the end he asks the speculative question whether there is something beyond the limits of the natural sciences.Gerhard Brner is a Professor of Physics at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich and co nducts research on the early universe and dark matter at the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching near Munich. He received hisPhD for a thesis on particle physics under the supervision of Werner Heisenberg and Hans-Peter Drr. Professor Brner is the author of the successful graduate textbook The Early Universe (published by Springer and now in its 4thedition), as well as of several popular science books on cosmology. In 2009 he received the Chinese Academy of Sciences Award for International C ooperation in Science and Technology (together with Prof. Maurice-Roger Bonnet). In 2010he received the Friendship Award, and in January 2011 the Chinese governments National Award for Cooperation in Science and Technology, the highest honor bestowed on f oreigners |

Note: | When you look up at the sky at night and see the stars, do you understand what youre looking at? What is starlight made up of, and how does it travel to us? How are stars born, and how do they die? How do we figure out how faraway are the stars and h ow massive they are? Can we know which stars will go supernova and which will end up as white dwarfs or black holes? How long will our Sun continue to shine down on us, and how do we know its age? There are somany questions, and in this engaging and infor mative book by Keith Robinson, which serves as a companion to his very popular earlier book called Spectroscopy the Key to the Stars, you will learn the basics of stellar physics andthe answers to many of these questions, as well as how to figure out som e of those answers for yourself. We have come so far in our understanding of stellar light and heat. By reading this book, you, too, can understand many of thesecrets of the fiery Sun that rules our Solar System and the gemlike points of light in the nigh t sky |

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 |

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: | 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. He is a recipient of the S.S. Bhatnagar Award, the most well-known scientific honor from the Government of India. C. F.

Title: | Nonlinear Optimization with Financial Applications [electronic resource] |

Note: | Springer e-book platform |

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 |
