Note: | Main concepts of quasi-stationary distributions (QSDs) for killed processes are the focus of the present volume. For diffusions, the killing is at the boundary and for dynamical systems there is a trap. The authors present theQSDs as the ones that al low describing the long-term behavior conditioned to not being killed. Studies in this research area started with Kolmogorov and Yaglom and in the last few decades have received a great deal of attention. Theauthors provide the exponential distribution pr operty of the killing time for QSDs, present the more general result on their existence and study the process of trajectories that survive forever. For birth-and-death chains anddiffusions, the existence of a single or a continuum of QSDs is described. Th ey study the convergence to the extremal QSD and give the classification of the survival process. In this monograph, the authors discuss Gibbs QSDs forsymbolic systems and absolutely continuous QSDs for repellers. The findings described are relevant to re searchers in the fields of Markov chains, diffusions, potential theory, dynamical systems, and in areas where extinction is acentral concept. The theory is illustrated with numerous examples. The volume uniquely presents the distribution behavior of indiv iduals who survive in a decaying population for a very long time. It also provides the background forapplications in mathematical ecology, statistical physics, computer sciences, and economics |

Note: | Many economic and social surveys are designed as panel studies, which provide important data for describing social changes and testing causal relations between social phenomena. This textbook shows how to manage, describe, andmodel these kinds of dat a. It presents models for continuous and categorical dependent variables, focusing either on the level of these variables at different points in time or on their change over time. It covers fixed and randomeffects models, models for change scores and even t history models. All statistical methods are explained in an application-centered style using research examples from scholarly journals, which can be replicated by the reader throughdata provided on the accompanying website. As all models are compared to each other, it provides valuable assistance with choosing the right modelin applied research. The textbook is directed at master and doctoral students as wellas applied researchers in the social sciences, psychology, business administration and economics .

Note: | Combining two important and growing areas of applied mathematicscontrol theory and modelingthis textbook introduces and builds on methods for simulating and tackling problems in a variety of applied sciences. Control theoryhas moved from primarily be ing used in engineering to an important theoretical component for optimal strategies in other sciences, such as therapies in medicine or policy in economics. Applied to mathematical models, control theory hasthe power to change the way we view biological and financial systems, taking us a step closer to solving concrete problems that arise out of these systems. Emphasizing learning by doing, the authors focus on examples andapplications to real-world problems, stressing concepts and minimizing technicalit ies. An elementary presentation of advanced concepts from the mathematical theory of optimal control is provided, giving readers the tools to solvesignificant and realistic problems. Proofs are also given whenever they may serve as a guide to the introduc tion of new concepts. This approach not only fosters an understanding of how control theory can open up modeling in areas suchas the life sciences, medicine, and economics, but also guides readers from applications to new, independent research. Key featur es include: * An introduction to the main tools of MATLAB, as well as programs that move from relativelysimple ODE applications to more complex PDE models * Numerous applications to a wide range of subjects, including HIV and insulin treatments, populatio n dynamics, and stock management * Exploration of cutting-edge topics in laterchapters, such as optimal harvesting and optimal control of diffusive models, designed to stimulate further research and theses projects * Exercises in each chapter, allowing st udents a chance to work with MATLAB and achieve a bettergrasp of the applications * Minimal prerequisites: undergraduate-level calculus * Appendices with basic concepts and results from f |

Note: | The Poisson-Dirichlet distribution is an infinite dimensional probability distribution. It was introduced by Kingman over thirty years ago, and has found applications in a broad range of areas including Bayesian statistics,combinatorics, differential geometry, economics, number theory, physics, and population genetics. This monograph provides a comprehensive study of this distribution and some related topics, with particular emphasis on recent progressesin evolutionary dynamics and asymptotic behavio rs. One central scheme is the unification of the Poisson-Dirichlet distribution, the urn structure, the coalescent, the evolutionary dynamics through the grand particle system of Donnellyand Kurtz. It is largely self-contained. The methods and techniques used in it appeal to researchers in a wide variety of subjects |

Note: | An observational study is an empiric investigation of effects caused by treatments when randomized experimentation is unethical or infeasible. Observational studies are common in most fields that study the effects of treatmentson people, including me dicine, economics, epidemiology, education, psychology, political science and sociology. The quality and strength of evidence provided by an observational study is determined largely by its design. Design ofObservational Studies is both an introduction to statistical inference in observational studies and a detailed discussion of the principles that guide the design of observational studies. Design of Observational Studies is divided intofour parts. Chapters 2, 3, and 5 of Part I cover concisely, in about one hundred pages, many of the ideas discussed in Rosenbaums Observational Studies (also published by Springer) but in a less technical fashion. Part II discussesthe practical aspects of using propensity scores and other tools to create a matched compari son that balances many covariates. Part II includes a chapter on matching in R. In Part III, the concept of design sensitivity is used toappraise the relative ability of competing designs to distinguish treatment effects from biases due to unmeasured cova riates. Part IV discusses planning the analysis of an observational study, with particular reference to Sir RonaldFishers striking advice for observational studies, make your theories elaborate. Paul R. Rosenbaum is the Robert G. Putzel Professor of Stati stics at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He is a fellow of theAmerican Statistical Association. In 2003, he received the George W. Snedecor Award from the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies. He is a senior fellow of the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics and a ResearchAssociate at the Population Studies Center, both at the University of Pennsylvania.

Note: | Mathematical modeling using dynamical systems and partial differential equations is now playing an increasing role in the understanding of complex multi-scale phenomena. Behavior in seemingly different areas such as sociology,economics, and the life sciences can be described by closely related models. Systems made out of a large enough number of individual members can be said to exhibit a collective behavior, from which insight can be gathered in a way thatreal-life experiments cannot. Using examples from financial markets and modern warfare to the flocking of birds and the swarming of bacteria, the collected research in this volume demonstrates the common methodological approaches andtools for modeling and simulating collective behavior. Specific to pics covered include: * analysis of wealth distributions * dynamics of price formation * spreading of opinions * models of social behavior * population dynamics *aggregation and swarming The topics presented point toward new and challenging frontiers of a pplied mathematics, making the volume a useful reference text for applied mathematicians, physicists, biologists, and economists involved inthe modeling of socio-economic systems |

Note: | This work examines viability theory and its applications to control theory and differential games. The emphasis is on the construction of feedbacks and dynamical systems by myopic optimization methods. Systems of first-orderpartial differential inclu sions, whose solutions are feedbacks, are constructed and investigated. Basic results are then extended to the case of fuzzy control problems, distributed control problems, and control systems with delays andmemory. Aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians, both pure and applied, this book offers specialists in control and nonlinear systems tools to take into account general state constraints. Viability theory also allowsresearchers in other disciplinesartificial intelligence, economics, gam e theory, theoretical biology, population genetics, cognitive sciencesto go beyond deterministic models by studying them in a dynamical or evolutionaryperspective in an uncertain environment. The book is a compendium of the state of knowledge about viabil ity...Mathematically, the book should be accessible to anyone who has had basic graduate courses in modern analysis and functionalanalysisThe concepts are defined and many proofs of the requisite results are reproduced here, making the present book essent ially self-contained. Bulletin of the AMS Because of the wide scope, the book is an ideal reference forpeople encountering problems related to viability theory in their researchIt gives a very thorough mathematical presentation. Very useful for anybody co nfronted with viability constraints. Mededelingen van het WiskundigGenootschap |

Note: | The application of auto-repeat facilities in telephone systems, as well as the use of random access protocols in computer networks, have led to growing interest in retrial queueing models. Since much of the theory of retrialqueues is complex from an analytical viewpoint, with this book the authors give a comprehensive and updated text focusing on approximate techniques and algorithmic methods for solving the analytically intractable models. RetrialQueueing Systems: A Computational Approach also Prese nts motivating examples in telephone and computer networks. Establishes a comparative analysis of the retrial queues versus standard queues with waiting lines and queues with losses.Integrates a wide range of techniques applied to the main M/G/1 and M/M/c retrial queues, and variants with general retrial times, finite population and the discrete-time case. Surveys basic results of the matrix-analytic formalism andemphasizes the related tools employed in retrial queues. Discusses a few selected retrial que ues with QBD, GI/M/1 and M/G/1 structures. Features an abundance of numerical examples, and updates the existing literature. The book isintended for an audience ranging from advanced undergraduates to researchers interested not only in queueing theory, bu t also in applied probability, stochastic models of the operations research, and engineering. The prerequisite is agraduate course in stochastic processes, and a positive attitude to the algorithmic probability |

Title: | Survival and Event History Analysis [electronic resource] : A Process Point of View |

Note: | Time-to-event data are ubiquitous in fields such as medicine, biology, demography, sociology, economics and reliability theory. Recently, a need to analyze more complex event histories has emerged. Examples are individuals thatmove among several stat es, frailty that makes some units fail before others, internal time-dependent covariates, and the estimation of causal effects from observational data. The aim of this book is to bridge the gap between standardtextbook models and a range of models where t he dynamic structure of the data manifests itself fully. The common denominator of such models is stochastic processes. The authors show how counting processes, martingales, and stochasticintegrals fit very nicely with censored data. Beginning with standa rd analyses such as Kaplan-Meier plots and Cox regression, the presentation progresses to the additive hazard model and recurrent event data. Stochastic processes arealso used as natural models for individual frailty they allow sensible interpretations of a number of surprising artifacts seen in population data. The stochastic process framework is naturally connected to causality. The authors showhow dynamic path analyses can incorporate many modern causality ideas in a framework that takes the time aspec t seriously. To make the material accessible to the reader, a large number of practical examples, mainly from medicine, aredeveloped in detail. Stochastic processes are introduced in an intuitive and non-technical manner. The book is aimed at investigator s who use event history methods and want a better understanding of the statistical concepts. It issuitable as a textbook for graduate courses in statistics and biostatistics. Odd O. Aalen is professor of medical statistics at the University of Oslo, Norwa y. His Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975 introducedcounting processes and martingales in event history analysis. He has also contributed to numerous other areas of event history |

Note: | Dynamical Systems with Applications using Mathematica provides an introduction to the theory of dynamical systems with the aid of the Mathematica computer algebra package. The book has a very hands-on approach and takes thereader from basic theory to recently published research material. Emphasized throughout are numerous applications to biology, chemical kinetics, economics, electronics, epidemiology, nonlinear optics, mechanics, population dynamics,and neural networks. Mathematicas symbolic, numeri cal, and graphical capabilities make it ideal for the study of nonlinear dynamical systems. An introductory chapter provides complete tutorials on how to use Mathematicastext-based input commands and palettes, enabling new users to become familiar with th e program, while providing a good reference source for experts. Working Mathematica notebooks will be available athttp://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/Books/AppliedMathematics/. Throughout the book, the author has focused on breadth of coverage rather th an fine detail, with theorems and proofs being kept to a minimum. The first part of the bookdeals with continuous systems using ordinary differential equations, while the second part is devoted to the study of discrete dynamical systems. Some of the mater ial presented is at the postgraduate level and has been influenced bythe authors own research interests. Exercises are included at the end of every chapter. A comprehensive bibliography including textbooks and research papers rounds out the work. The book is intended for senior undergraduate andgraduate students as well as working scientists in applied mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering. Many chapters of the book are especially useful as reference material for senior undergraduate independ ent project work.Also by the author: Dynamical Systems with Applications using MATLAB, ISBN 978-0-8176-4321-8 Dynamical Systems with Applications using Maple, ISBN 978-0-8176-4150-4 |
