Title:The Protos Mandate [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Nick Kanas M.D.
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In the 25th Century, the effects of overpopulation and global warming on Earth have led to the formation of human colonies on the Moon, Mars and elsewhere in the Solar System, yet the limited number of viable places forceshumanity to look to the star s.A crash program has been developed to send Protos 1, a giant multigenerational starship, to a newly discovered Earth-like planet orbiting a nearby star. The plan is for awake crewmembers to run the ship,and for people in suspended animation to be roused before planetfall to use their skills in exploration and colony formation. To fulfill the goals of the mission and ensure that the in-flight population does not deplete the limitedresources, the Protos Mandate is set up to govern a tightly controlled soc ial system for the duration of the journey, which will take several generations.But problems threaten to sabotage the mission during its launch and transit,and what finally awaits the crewmembers shocks them in an unpredictable way. This novel chronicles the trials and tribulations of this epic first interstellar mission. The scientific appendix at the end of the book discusses thechallenges of such an interstellar mission based on an extensive literature review, and it links these challenges to specific episodes in the novel. Issues that are considered include interstellar propulsion systems, economicconsiderations of interstellar flight, psychological and sociological factors inherent in a multigenerational space mission, problems with suspended animat ion, current knowledge of exoplanets, and issues related to colonizing a distantplanet and the possible discovery of extraterrestrial life.A history of interstellar missions in science fiction is also reviewed. Nick Kanas is an Emeritus Professor of Psyc hiatry at the University of California, San Francisco,where he directed the group therapy training program. For over 20 years he conducted research in group therapy, and for nearly 2

Title:Systems Engineering, Systems Thinking, and Learning [electronic resource] : A Case Study in Space Industry
Author(s): Hubert Anton Moser
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on systems engineering, systems thinking, and how that thinking can be learned in practice. It describes a novel analytical framework based on activity theory for understanding how systems thinking evolves andhow it can be improved to support multidisciplinary teamwork in the context of system development and systems engineering. This method, developed using data collected over four years from three different small space systems engineeringorganizations, can be applied in a wide var iety of work activities in the context of engineering design and beyond in order to monitor and analyze multidisciplinary interactions in working teams over time. In addition, the bookpresents a practical strategy called WAVES (Work Activity for a Evoluti on of Systems engineering and thinking), which fosters the practical learning of systems thinking with the aim of improving process development in differentindustries. The book offers an excellent resource for researchers and practitioners interested in s ystems thinking and in solutions to support its evolution. Beyond its contribution to a better understanding of systems engineering,systems thinking and how it can be learned in real-world contexts, it also introduce a suitable analysis framework that hel ps to bridge the gap between the latest social science research and engineering research.

Title:Excel 2010 for Engineering Statistics [electronic resource] : A Guide to Solving Practical Problems
Author(s): Thomas J Quirk
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This is the first book to show the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach engineering statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solvepractical engineering problems. If understanding statistics isnt your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you. Excel, a widely availablecomputer program for students and managers, is also an effecti ve teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in engineering courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics mucheasier than in years past. However, Excel 2010 for Engineering Statistics: A Guide to S olving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching students and managers how to apply Excel tostatistical techniques necessary in their courses and work. Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the r eader to use Excelcommands to solve specific, easy-to-understand engineering problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an Appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in anAppendix) th at allows readers to test what they have learned. Includes 159 Illustrations in color Suitable for upper undergraduates or graduate students At the beginning of his academic career, Prof. Quirk spent six years ineducational research at The American Instit utes for Research and Educational Testing Service. He then taught Social Psychology, Educational Psychology, General Psychology, Marketing, Management, and Accounting at Principia College,and is currently a Professor of Marketing in the George Herbert Wal ker School of Business & Technology at Webster University based in St. Louis, Missour

Michael Schreckenberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The 6th International Conference on Pedestrian and Evacuation Dynamics conference (PED2012) showcased research on human locomotion. This book presents the proceedings of PED2012. Humans have walked for eons our drive to settlethe globe began with a w alk out of Africa. However, much remains to discover. As the world moves toward sustainability while racing to assess and accommodate climate change, research must provide insight on the physical requirements ofwalking, the dynamics of pedestrians on the move and more. We must understand, predict and simulate pedestrian behaviour, to avoid dangerous situations, to plan for emergencies, and not least, to make walking more attractive andenjoyable. PED2012 offered 70 presentations and keynotes and 70 poster presentations covering new and improved mathematical models, describing new insights on pedestrian behaviour in normal and emergency cases and presenting researchbased on sensors and advanced observation methods. These papers offer a starting point for in novative new research, building a strong foundation for the next conference and for future research

Title:Test Equating, Scaling, and Linking [electronic resource] : Methods and Practices
Author(s): Michael J Kolen
Robert L Brennan
Date:2014
Edition:3rd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides an introduction to test equating, scaling, and linking, including those concepts and practical issues that are critical for developers and all other testing professionals. In addition to statisticalprocedures, successful equating, scaling, and linking involves many aspects of testing, including procedures to develop tests, to administer and score tests, and to interpret scores earned on tests. Test equating methods are used withmany standardized tests in education and psychology to ensure that scores from multiple test forms can be used interchangeably. Test scaling is the process of developing score scales that are used when scores on standardized testsare reported. In test linking, scores from two or more tests are related to one another. Linking has received much recent attention, due largely to investigations of linking similarly named tests from different test publishers or testsconstructed for different purposes. In recent years, researchers from the education, psychology, an d statistics communities have contributed to the rapidly growing statistical and psychometric methodologies used in test equating,scaling, and linking. In addition to the literature covered in previous editions, this new edition presents coverage of signi ficant recent research. In order to assist researchers, advanced graduate students and testing professionals,examples are used frequently, and conceptual issues are stressed. New material includes model determination in log-linear smoothing, in-depth pres entation of chained linear and equipercentile equating, equating criteria, test scoring,and a new section on scores for mixed-format tests. In the third edition, each chapter contains a reference list, rather than having a single reference list at the end of the volume The themes of the third edition include: * thepurposes of equating, scaling and linking and their practical context * data collection designs * statistical methodology * designing r

Note:This is the first comprehensive monograph on the mathematical theory of the solitaire game The Tower of Hanoi which was invented in the 19th century by the French number theorist douard Lucas. The book comprises a surveyof the historical development from the games predecessors up to recent research in mathematics and applications in computer science and psychology. Apart from long-standing myths it contains a thorough, largely self-containedpresentation of the essential mathematical facts with comple te proofs, including also unpublished material. The main objects of research today are the so-called Hanoi graphs and the related Sierpiski graphs. Acknowledging the greatpopularity of the topic in computer science, algorithms and their correctness proofs form an essential part of the book. In view of the most important practical applications of the Tower of Hanoi and its variants, namely in physics,network theory, and cognitive (neuro)psychology, other related structures and puzzles like, e.g., the Tower of London, are addressed. Numerous captivating integer sequences arise along the way, but also many open questions imposethemselves. Central among these is the famed Frame-Stewart conjecture. Despite many attempts to decide it and large-scale numerical e xperiments supporting its truth, it remains unsettled after more than 70 years and thus demonstratesthe timeliness of the topic. Enriched with elaborate illustrations, connections to other puzzles and challenges for the reader in the form of (solved) exer cises as well as problems for further exploration, this book is enjoyablereading for students, educators, game enthusiasts and researchers alike

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complexity occurs in biological and synthetic systems alike. This general phenomenon has been addressed in recent publications by investigators in disciplines ranging from chemistry and biology to psychology and philosophy.Studies of complexity for m olecular scientists have focussed on breaking symmetry, dissipative processes, and emergence. Investigators in the social and medical sciences have focused on neurophenomenology, cognitive approaches andself-consciousness. Complexity in both structure and function is inherent in many scientific disciplines of current significance and also in technologies of current importance that are rapidly evolving to address global societalneeds. Several of these multifaceted scientific disciplines are addressed in th is book including complexity from the general and philosophical perspective, magnetic phenomena, control of self assembly and function in largemulticomponent clusters, application of theory to probe structure and mechanism in highly complex molecular spec ies, and the design of multifunctional nanoscale molecules of value in decontamination and solar fuels research. Eachchapter is both a review and addresses some ongoing challenges, thus each should provide a good preparation for further work in these high ly active areas of research endeavour.

Laurence T Maloney
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Many of the commonly used methods for modeling and fitting psychophysical data are special cases of statistical procedures of great power and generality, notably the Generalized Linear Model (GLM). This book illustrates how to fitdata from a variety of psychophysical paradigms using modern statistical methods and the statistical language R.The paradigms include signal detection theory, psychometric function fitting, classification images and more. In twochapters, recently developed methods for scalin g appearance, maximum likelihood difference scaling and maximum likelihood conjoint measurement are examined.The authors also consider the applicationof mixed-effects models topsychophysical data. R is an open-source programming language that is widely us ed by statisticians and is seeing enormous growth in its application to data in all fields. It is interactive, containing many powerful facilities foroptimization, model evaluation, model selection, and graphical display of data. The reader who fits data in R can readily make use of these methods. The researcher who uses R to fit and model his data has access to most recentlydeveloped statistical methods. This book does not assume that the reader is familiar with R, and a little experience with any progra mming language is all that is needed to appreciate this book. There are large numbers of examples of Rin the text and the source code for all examples is available in an R package MPDiR available through R. Kenneth Knoblauch is a researcher in the Departm ent of Integrative Neurosciences in Inserm Unit 846, The Stem Cell and BrainResearch Institute and associated with the University Claude Bernard, Lyon 1, in France. Laurence T. Maloney is Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University. His research focusses on applications of mathematicalmodels to perception, motor control and decision making

Edition:1
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Agreement assessment techniques are widely used in examining the acceptability of a new or generic process, methodology and/or formulation in areas of lab performance, instrument/assay validation or method comparisons, statisticalprocess control, goo dness-of-fit, and individual bioequivalence. Successful applications in these situations require a sound understanding of both the underlying theory and methodological advances in handling real-life problems. Thisbook seeks to effectively blend theory and applications while presenting readers with many practical examples. For instance, in the medical device environment, it is important to know if the newly established lab can reproduce theinstrument/assay results from the established but outdating lab. Wh en there is a disagreement, it is important to differentiate the sources of disagreement. In addition to agreement coefficients, accuracy and precision coefficientsare introduced and utilized to characterize these sources. This book will appeal to a broad range of statisticians, researchers, practitioners and students, in areas of biomedical devices, psychology, medical research, and others, inwhich agreement assessment are needed. Many practical illustrative examples will be presented throughout the book in a wide variety of situations for continuous and categorical data

Title:Statistical Models for Test Equating, Scaling, and Linking [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alina A Davier
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goal of this book is to emphasize the formal statistical features of the practice of equating, linking, and scaling. The book encourages the view and discusses the quality of the equating results from the statisticalperspective (new models, robus tness, fit, testing hypotheses, statistical monitoring) as opposed to placing the focus on the policy and the implications, which although very important, represent a different side of the equatingpractice. The book contributes to establishing equating as a theoretical field, a view that has not been offered often before. The tradition in the practice of equating has been to present the knowledge and skills needed as acraft, which implies that only with years of experience under the guidance of a knowledg eable practitioner could one acquire the required skills. This book challenges this view by indicating how a good equating framework, a soundunderstanding of the assumptions that underlie the psychometric models, and the use of statistical tests and stati stical process control tools can help the practitioner navigate the difficult decisions in choosing the final equatingfunction. This book provides a valuable reference for several groups: (a) statisticians and psychometricians interested in the theory beh ind equating methods, in the use of model-based statistical methods for data smoothing, and in theevaluation of the equating results in applied work (b) practitioners who need to equate tests, including those with these responsibilities in testing compani es, state testing agencies, and school districts and (c) instructors inpsychometric, measurement, and psychology programs. Dr. Alina A. von Davier is a Strategic Advisor and a Director of Special Projects in Research and Development at Educational Testing Service (ETS).

Title:Fundamentals of Modern Statistical Methods [electronic resource] : Substantially Improving Power and Accuracy

Edition:Second
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Conventional statistical methods have a very serious flaw. They routinely miss differences among groups or associations among variables that are detected by more modern techniques, even under very small departures from normality.Hundreds of journal a rticles have described the reasons standard techniques can be unsatisfactory, but simple, intuitive explanations are generally unavailable. Situations arise where even highly nonsignificant results becomesignificant when analyzed with more modern methods. Without assuming the reader has any prior training in statistics, Part I of this book describes basic statistical principles from a point of view that makes their shortcomingsintuitive and easy to understand. The emphasis is on verbal and graphical descr iptions of concepts. Part II describes modern methods that address the problems covered in Part I. Using data from actual studies, many examples areincluded to illustrate the practical problems with conventional procedures and how more modern methods can make a substantial difference in the conclusions reached in many areas of statistical research. The second edition of this bookincludes a number of advances and insights that have occurred since the first edition appeared. Included are new results relevan t to medians, regression, measures of association, strategies for comparing dependent groups, methods fordealing with heteroscedasticity, and measures of effect size. Rand Wilcox is a professor of psychology at the University of Southern California. He is a fellow of the Royal Statistical Society and the Association for PsychologicalScience. Dr. Wilcox currently serves as an associate editor of Computational Statistics & Data Analysis, Communications in Statistics: Theory and Methods, Communications in St atistics: Simulation and Computation, and Psychometrika.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:From his unique perspective, renowned statistician and educator Frederick Mosteller describes many of the projects and events in his long career. From humble beginnings in western Pennsylvania to becoming the founding chairman ofHarvard Universitys D epartment of Statistics and beyond, he inspired many statisticians, scientists, and students with his unabashed pragmatism, creative thinking, and zest for both learning and teaching. This candid account offersfresh insights into the qualities that made M osteller a superb teacher, a prolific scholar, a respected leader, and a valued advisor.

Note:This book, a classic in its field, deals with the physical systems and physiological processes that intervene in music. It analyzes what objective, physical properties of sound are associated with what subjective psychologicalsensations of music, and it describes how these sound patterns are actually generated in musical instruments, how they propagate through the environment, and how they are detected by the ear and interpreted in the brain. Using theprecise language of science, but without complica ted mathematics, the author weaves a close mesh of the physics, psychophysics and neurobiology relevant to music. A prior knowledge of physics, mathematics, neurobiology or psychology isnot required to understand most of the book it is, however, assumed t hat the reader is familiar with music - in particular, with musical notation, musical scales and intervals, and some of the basics of musical instruments.

Title:Bayesian Evaluation of Informative Hypotheses [electronic resource]
Author(s): Herbert Hoijtink
Irene Klugkist
Paul A Boelen
Date:2008
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:This book presents an alternative for traditional null hypothesis testing. It builds on the idea that researchers usually have more informative research-questions than the nothing is going on null hypothesis, or thesomething is going on alternative h ypothesis. To be more precise, researchers often express their expectations in terms of expected orderings in parameters, for instance, in group means. This book introduces a novel approach,wherein theories or expectations of empirical researchers are tra nslated into one or more so-called informative hypotheses, i.e., hypotheses imposing inequality constraints on (some of) the model parameters. As a consequence,informative hypotheses are much closer to the actual questions researchers have and therefore m ake optimal use of the data to provide more informative answers to these questions. A Bayesian approach is used for the evaluation ofinformative hypotheses and is introduced at a non-technical level in the context of analysis of variance models. Technical aspects of Bayesian evaluation of informative hypotheses are also considered and different approaches arepresented by an international group of Bayesian statisticians. Furthermore, applications in a variety of statistical models including among others la tent class analysis and multi-level modeling are presented, again at a non-technicallevel. Finally, the proposed method is evaluated from a psychological, statistical and philosophical point of view. This book contains numerous illustrations, all in the c ontext of psychology. The proposed methodology, however, isequally relevant for research in other social sciences (e.g., sociology or educational sciences), as well as in other disciplines (e.g., medical or economical research). The editors are all affili ated at the faculty of Social Sciencesat Utrecht University in the Netherlands. Herbert Hoijtink is a professor in applied Bayesian statistics at the Department of Methodology and Statistics. Irene

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

Title:Multivariate and Mixture Distribution Rasch Models [electronic resource] : Extensions and Applications

Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume covers extensions of the Rasch model, one of the most researched and applied models in educational research and social science. This collection contains 22 chapters by some of the most recognized international expertsin the field. They co ver topics ranging from general model extensions to applications in fields as diverse as cognition, personality, organizational and sports psychology, and health sciences and education. The Rasch model is designedfor categorical data, often collected as e xaminees' responses to multiple tasks such as cognitive items from psychological tests or from educational assessments. The Rasch model's elegant mathematical form is suitable for extensionsthat allow for greater flexibility in handling complex samples of examinees and collections of tasks from different domains. In these extensions, the Rasch model is enhanced by additional structural elements that either account fordifferences between diverse populations or for differences among observed variables. Rese arch on extending well-known statistical tools like regression, mixture distribution, and hierarchical linear models has led to the adoption ofRasch model features to handle categorical observed variables. We maintain both perspectives in the volume and s how how these merged modelsRasch models with a more complex item or population structureare derived either from theRasch model or from a structural model, how they are estimated, and where they are applied. Matthias von Davier is a Senior Research Scienti st in the Research & Development Division at Educational Testing Service. He is the author ofWINMIRA, a software package for estimating latent class models, mixture distribution Rasch models, and hybrid Rasch models.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book provides a comprehensive treatment of multidimensional scaling (MDS), a family of statistical techniques for analyzing the structure of (dis)similarity data. Such data are widespread, including, for example,intercorrelations of survey items, direct ratings on the similarity on choice objects, or trade indices for a set of countries. MDS represents the data as distances among points in a geometric space of low dimensionality. This map canhelp to see patterns in the data that are not obvious f rom the data matrices. MDS is also used as a psychological model for judgments of similarity and preference. This book may be used as an introduction to MDS for students inpsychology, sociology, and marketing. The prerequisite is an elementary background in statistics. The book is also well suited for a variety of advanced courses on MDS topics. All the mathematics required for more advanced topics isdeveloped systematically. This second edition is not only a complete overhaul of its predecessor, but also adds some 140 pages of new material. Many chapters are revised or have sections reflecting new insights and developments in MDS.There are two new chapters, one on asymmetric models and the other on unfolding. There are also numerous exercises that help t he reader to practice what he or she has learned, and to delve deeper into the models and its intricacies.These exercises make it easier to use this edition in a course. All data sets used in the book can be downloaded from the web. The appendix on comput er programs has also been updated and enlarged to reflect the state of the art. IngwerBorg is Scientific Director at the Center for Survey Methodology (ZUMA) in Mannheim, Germany, and Professor of Psychology at the University of Giessen, Germany. He has a uthored or edited 14 books and numerous articles on data analysis,survey research, theory construction, and various substantive topics of psychology.

Title:Branch-and-Bound Applications in Combinatorial Data Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Michael J Brusco
Stephanie Stahl
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:There are a variety of combinatorial optimization problems that are relevant to the examination of statistical data. Combinatorial problems arise in the clustering of a collection of objects, the seriation (sequencing or ordering)of objects, and the selection of variables for subsequent multivariate statistical analysis such as regression. The options for choosing a solution strategy in combinatorial data analysis can be overwhelming. Because some problems aretoo large or intractable for an optimal s olution strategy, many researchers develop an over-reliance on heuristic methods to solve all combinatorial problems. However, with increasingly accessible computer power and ever-improvingmethodologies, optimal solution strategies have gained popularity for their ability to reduce unnecessary uncertainty. In this monograph, optimality is attained for nontrivially sized problems via the branch-and-bound paradigm. Formany combinatorial problems, branch-and-bound approaches have been proposed and/or develop ed. However, until now, there has not been a single resource in statistical data analysis to summarize and illustrate available methods forapplying the branch-and-bound process. This monograph provides clear explanatory text, illustrative mathematics and algorithms, demonstrations of the iterative process, psuedocode, and well-developed examples for applications of thebranch-and-bound paradigm to important problems in combinatorial data analysis.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The second edition of this popular guide demonstrates the process of entering and analyzing data using the latest version of SPSS (12.0), and is also appropriate for those using earlier versions of SPSS. The book is easy to followbecause all procedur es are outlined in a step-by-step format designed for the novice user. Students are introduced to the rationale of statistical tests and detailed explanations of results are given through clearly annotated examplesof SPSS output. Topics covered range from descriptive statistics through multiple regression analysis. In addition, this guide includes topics not typically covered in other books such as probability theory, interaction effects inanalysis of variance, factor analysis, and scale reliability. Chap ter exercises reinforce the text examples and may be performed for further practice, for homework assignments, or in computer laboratory sessions. This book can be usedin two ways: as a stand-alone manual for students wishing to learn data analysis techni ques using SPSS for Windows, or in research and statistics courses to be used with a basic statistics text. The book provides hands-on experiencewith actual data sets, helps students choose appropriate statistical tests, illustrates the meaning of results , and provides exercises to be completed for further practice or as homework assignments. Instructions are provided for usingthe World Wide Web to obtain the data sets to be analyzed. With this guide, students learn how to conduct reasonably sophisticated statistical analyses using SPSS while gaining insight into the nature and purpose of statisticalinvestigation. Susan B.

Title:Functional Data Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): J. O Ramsay
B. W Silverman
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:Scientists and others today often collect samples of curves and other functional observations. This monograph presents many ideas and techniques for such data. Included are expressions in the functional domain of such classics aslinear regression, pr incipal components analysis, linear modeling, and canonical correlation analysis, as well as specifically functional techniques such as curve registration and principal differential analysis. Data arising in realapplications are used throughout for both m otivation and illustration, showing how functional approaches allow us to see new things, especially by exploiting the smoothness of the processes generating the data. The data sets exemplifythe wide scope of functional data analysis they are drawn from g rowth analysis, meteorology, biomechanics, equine science, economics, and medicine. The book presents novel statistical technology, much of it based on the authors ownresearch work, while keeping the mathematical level widely accessible. It is designed to appeal to students, to applied data analysts, and to experienced researchers it will have value both within statistics and across a broadspectrum of other fields. This second edition is aimed at a wider range of readers, and especially those who would li ke to apply these techniques to their research problems. It complements the authors' other recent volume AppliedFunctional Data Analysis: Methods and Case Studies. In particular, there is an extended coverage of data smoothing and other matters arising in the preliminaries to a functional data analysis. The chapters on the functional linearmodel and modeling of the dynamics of systems through the use of differential equations and principal differential analysis have been completely rewritten and extended to include new developments. Other chapters have been revisedsubstantially, often to give more weight to examples and practical considerations. Jim Ramsay is Professor of Psychology at McGill Unive
