Title:Measurement and Probability [electronic resource] : A Probabilistic Theory of Measurement with Applications
Author(s): Giovanni Battista Rossi
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Measurement plays a fundamental role both in physical and behavioral sciences, as well as in engineering and technology: it is the link between abstract models and empirical reality and is a privileged method of gatheringinformation from the real wor ld. Is it possible to develop a single theory of measurement for the various domains of science and technology in which measurement is involved? This book takes the challenge by addressing the followingmain issues: What is the meaning of measurement? How do we measure? What can be measured? A theoretical framework that could truly be shared by scientists in different fields, ranging from physics and engineering to psychology isdeveloped. The future in fact will require greater collaboration between scienc e and technology and between different sciences. Measurement, which played a key role in the birth of modern science, can act as an essentialinterdisciplinary tool and language for this new scenario. A sound theoretical basis for addressing key problems i n measurement is provided. These include perceptual measurement, the evaluation of uncertainty, the evaluation ofinter-comparisons, the analysis of risks in decision-making and the characterization of dynamical measurement. Currently, increasing attention is paid to these issues due to their scientific, technical, economic and social impact. Thebook proposes a unified probabilistic approach to them which may allow more rational and effective solutions to be reached. Great care was taken to make the text a s accessible as possible in several ways. Firstly, by giving preferenceto as interdisciplinary a terminology as possible secondly, by carefully defining and discussing all key terms. This ensures that a wide readership, including people from different mat hematical backgrounds and different understandingsof measurement can all benefit from this work. Concerning mathematics, all the main results are preceded by intuitive discussions and illustrated by si

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

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.

Title:The Foundations of Statistics: A Simulation-based Approach [electronic resource]

Michael Broe
Date:2011
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Statistics and hypothesis testing are routinely used in areas (such as linguistics) that are traditionally not mathematically intensive. In such fields, when faced with experimental data, many students and researchers tend torely on commercial packag es to carry out statistical data analysis, often without understanding the logic of the statistical tests they rely on. As a consequence, results are often misinterpreted, and users have difficulty in flexiblyapplying techniques relevant to their own rese arch they use whatever they happen to have learned. A simple solution is to teach the fundamental ideas of statistical hypothesis testing without using too much mathematics. This bookprovides a non-mathematical, simulation-based introduction to basic sta tistical concepts and encourages readers to try out the simulations themselves using the source code and data provided (the freely available programming language Ris used throughout). Since the code presented in the text almost always requires the use of previously introduced programming constructs, diligent students also acquire basic programming abilities in R. The book is intended foradvanced undergraduate and graduate students in any discipline, although the focus is on linguistics, psychology, and co gnitive science. It is designed for self-instruction, but it can also be used as a textbook for a first course onstatistics. Earlier versions of the book have been used in undergraduate and graduate courses in Europe and the US. Vasishth and Broe have wr itten an attractive introduction to the foundations of statistics. It is concise,surprisingly comprehensive, self-contained and yet quite accessible. Highly recommended. Harald Baayen, Professor of Linguistics, University of Alberta, Canada By using the text students not only learn to do the specificthings outlined in the book, they also gain a skill set that empowers them to explore new areas that lie beyond the books coverage.

Note:On the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the birth of Hermann Gramann (1809-1877), an interdisciplinary conference was held in Potsdam, Germany, and in Gramann's hometown Szczecin, Poland. The idea of the conference was topresent a multi-faceted p icture of Gramann, and to uncover the complexity of the factors that were responsible for his creativity. The conference demonstrated not only the very influential reception of his work at the turn of the20th century, but also the unexpected modernity of his ideas, and their continuing development in the 21st century. This book contains 37 papers presented at the conference. They investigate the significance of Gramann's work forphilosophical as well as for scientific and methodological questions, for com parative philology in general and for Indology in particular, for psychology, physiology, religious studies, musicology, didactics, and, last but not least,mathematics. In addition, the book contains numerous illustrations and English translations of orig inal sources, which are published here for the first time. These include life histories of Gramann (written by his son Justus) and ofhis brother Robert (written by Robert himself), as well as the paper On the concept and extent of pure theory of number'' by Justus Gramann (the father). In November 2010 the capital of the federal state of Brandenburg (Germany)chose the Gramann Conference as the first-time winner of the Potsdam Conference-Award in the category Innovative and/or exceptional events

Note:Quantum-like structure is present practically everywhere. Quantum-like (QL) models, i.e. models based on the mathematical formalism of quantum mechanics and its generalizations can be successfully applied to cognitive science,psychology, genetics, ec onomics, finances, and game theory. This book is not about quantum mechanics as a physical theory. The short review of quantum postulates is therefore mainly of historical value: quantum mechanics is just thefirst example of the successful application of non-Kolmogorov probabilities, the first step towards a contextual probabilistic description of natural, biological, psychological, social, economical or financial phenomena. A generalcontextual probabilistic model (Vxj model) is presented. It can be used for describing probabilities in both quantum and classical (statistical) mechanics as well as in the above mentioned phenomena. This model can be representedin a quantum-like way, namely, in complex and more general Hilbert spaces. In this way quantum pro bability is totally demystified: Born's representation of quantum probabilities by complex probability amplitudes, wave functions, issimply a special representation of this type

Title:Contextual Approach to Quantum Formalism [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andrei Khrennikov
Date:2009
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The aim of this book is to show that the probabilistic formalisms of classical statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics can be unified on the basis of a general contextual probabilistic model. By taking into account thedependence of (classical) pr obabilities on contexts (i.e. complexes of physical conditions), one can reproduce all distinct features of quantum probabilities such as the interference of probabilities and the violation of Bellsinequality. Moreover, by starting with a formula for the interference of probabilities (which generalizes the well known classical formula of total probability), one can construct the representation of contextual probabilities bycomplex probability amplitudes or, in the abstract formalism, by normalized vectors of the complex Hilbert space or its hyperbolic generalization. Thus the Hilbert space representation of probabilities can be naturally derived fromclassical probabilistic assumptions. An important chapter of the book critically reviews known no-go theore ms: the impossibility to establish a finer description of micro-phenomena than provided by quantum mechanics and, inparticular, the commonly accepted consequences of Bells theorem (including quantum non-locality). Also, possible applications of the contex tual probabilistic model and its quantum-like representation in complex Hilbert spaces inother fields (e.g. in cognitive science and psychology) are discussed

Title:A Missing Link in Cybernetics [electronic resource] Logic and Continuity
Author(s): Alex M Andrew
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The relative failure of attempts to analyze and model intelligence can be attributed in part to the customary assumption that the processing of continuous variables and the manipulation of discrete concepts should be treatedseparately. In this book, the author considers concept-based thought as having evolved from processing of continuous variables. Although fuzzy theory acknowledges the need to combine conceptual and continuous processing, itsassumption of the primacy of concept-based processing mak es it evolutionarily implausible. The text begins by reviewing the origins and aims of cybernetics with particular reference to Warren McCullochs declared lifetime quest ofunderstanding mans understanding. It is shown that continuous systems can undergo c omplex self-organization, but a need for classification of situations becomes apparent and can be seen as the evolutionary beginning ofconcept-based processing. Possibilities for complex self-organization are emphasized by discussion of a general principl e that has been termed significance feedback, of which backpropagation of errors in neural nets is a special case.It is also noted that continuous measures come to be associated with processing that is essentially concept-based, as acknowledged in Marvin Minskys reference to heuristic connection between problems, and the associated basiclearning heuristic of Minsky and Selfridge. This reappearance of continuity, along with observations on the multi-layer structure of intelligent systems, supports a potent ially valuable view of intelligence as having a fractal nature.This is such that structures at a complex level, interpreted in terms of these emergent measures, reflect others at a simpler level. Implications for neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence a re also examined. The book presentsunconventional and challenging viewpoints that will be of interest to researchers in AI, psychology, cybernetics and systems science, and should help prom

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. The software grew out of his work with colleagues at the Methodology Department of the Institute for ScienceEducation (IPN) in Kiel, Germany.

Title:The Innermost Kernel [electronic resource] Depth Psychology and Quantum Physics. Wolfgang Paulis Dialogue with C.G. Jung
Author(s): Suzanne Gieser
Date:2005
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The Innermost Kernel recounts the physicist and Nobel Laureate Wolfgang Pauli and his interest in Jungian psychology, philosophy and western world-view. It is also an exploration of the intellectual setting and context ofPauli's thinking, which has i ts starting point in the cultural and intellectual climate of fin-de-sicle Europe. As a contribution to the general history of quantum physics this study has a special focus on the psychological andphilosophical issues discussed by physicists belonging to the Copenhagen school. The work is mainly based on the correspondence of the principle characters and explores some of the central issues discussed there, as for instance thesubject-object relation, complementarity, the relation of conscious and unconsci ous, the process underlying concept-formation, the psychology of scientific discovery, the symbolic world of alchemy, the theories of archetypes and ofsynchronicity. Ultimately this book is about a remarkable scientist searching for a new understanding of the interrelatedness of man and world

Title:Modeling Longitudinal Data [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert E Weiss
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:Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the artand statistical scie nce of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend andcovariates, models the covariance matrix, and t hen draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured modelsamong others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and cri tique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables.Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, mode ls for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computationalalgorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as backgroun d and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum.The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostati stics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students indisciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many fig ures and tables illustrating longitudinal data andnumerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material
