Title:Software Reliability Modeling [electronic resource] : Fundamentals and Applications
Author(s): Shigeru Yamada
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Software reliability is one of the most important characteristics of software product quality. Its measurement and management technologies during the software product life cycle are essential to produce and maintainquality/reliable software systems. Part 1 of this book introduces several aspects of software reliability modeling and its applications. Hazard rate and nonhomogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) models are investigated particularly forquantitative software reliability assessment. Further, impe rfect debugging and software availability models are discussed with reference to incorporating practical factors of dynamic software behavior. Three software managementproblems are presented as application technologies of software reliability models: the optimal software release problem, the statistical testing-progress control, and the optimal testing-effort allocation problem. Part 2 of the bookdescribes several recent developments in software reliability modeling and their applications as quantitative techniques for software quality/reliability measurement and assessment. The discussion includes a quality engineeringanalysis of human factors affecting software reliability during the design review phase, which is the upper stream of software development , as well as software reliability growth models based on stochastic differential equations anddiscrete calculus during the testing phase, which is the lower stream. The final part of the book provides an illustration of quality-oriented software managemen t analysis by applying the multivariate analysis method and the existingsoftware reliability growth models to actual process monitoring data

Title:Networks of Networks: The Last Frontier of Complexity [electronic resource]
Author(s): Gregorio D'Agostino
Antonio Scala
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The present work is meant as a reference to provide an organic and comprehensive view of the most relevant results in the exciting new field of Networks of Networks (NetoNets). Seminal papers have recently been published posingthe basis to study what happens when different networks interact, thus providing evidence for the emergence of new, unexpected behaviors and vulnerabilities. From those seminal works, the awareness on the importance understandingNetworks of Networks (NetoNets) has spread to the entire community of Complexity Science. The reader will benefit from the experience of some of the most well-recognized leaders in this field. The contents have been aggregated underfour headings General Theory, Phenomenology, Applications and Risk Asses sment. The reader will be impressed by the different applications of the general paradigm that span from physiology, to financial risk, to transports. We arecurrently making the first steps to reduce the distance between the language and the way of thinki ng of the two communities of experts in real infrastructures and the complexity scientists. Although this path may prove to be long, itis extremely promising, both in extending our understanding of complex systems and in finding concrete applications that can enhance the life quality of millions of people

Title:The Art of Progressive Censoring [electronic resource] : Applications to Reliability and Quality
Author(s): N Balakrishnan
Erhard Cramer
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph offers a thorough and updated guide to the theory and methods of progressive censoring, an area that has experienced tremendous growth in recent years. Progressive censoring, originally proposed in the 1950s, is anefficient method of h andling samples from industrial experiments involving lifetimes of units that have either failed or censored in a progressive fashion during the life test, with many practical applications to reliability andquality. Key topics and features: Data sets from the literature as well as newly simulated data sets are used to illustrate concepts throughout the text Emphasis on real-life applications to life testing, reliability, and qualitycontrol Discussion of parametric and nonparametric inference Coverage of e xperimental design with optimal progressive censoring The Art of Progressive Censoring is a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers, andpractitioners in applied statistics, quality control, life testing, and reliability. With its accessible style and concrete examples, the work may also be used as a textbook in advanced undergraduate orbeginning graduate courses oncensoring or progressive censoring, as well as a supplementary textbook for a course on ordered data

Title:Spin Fluctuation Theory of Itinerant Electron Magnetism [electronic resource]
Author(s): Yoshinori Takahashi
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume shows how collective magnetic excitations determine most of the magnetic properties of itinerant electron magnets. Previous theories were mainly restricted to the Curie-Weiss law temperature dependence of magneticsusceptibilities. Based o n the spin amplitude conservation idea including the zero-point fluctuation amplitude, this book shows that the entire temperature and magnetic field dependence of magnetization curves, even in the groundstate, is determined by the effect of spin fluctuat ions. It also shows that the theoretical consequences are largely in agreement with many experimental observations. The readers will therefore gain a new comprehensive perspective oftheir unified understanding of itinerant electron magnetism

Title:Advances in Combinatorics [electronic resource] : Waterloo Workshop in Computer Algebra, W80, May 26-29, 2011

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume, as Andrew M. Odlzyko writes in the foreword, commemorates and celebrates the life and achievements of an extraordinary person. Originally conceived as an 80th birthday tribute to Herbert Wilf, the well-knowncombinatorialist, the book has evolved beyond the proceeds of the W80 tribute. Professor Wilf was an award-winning teacher, who was supportive of women mathematicians, and who had an unusually high proportion of women among his PhDcandidates. He was Editor-in-chief of the American Mat hematical Monthly and a founder of both the Journal of Algorithms and of the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics. But he was first a researcher, driven by his desire to know andexplain the inner workings of the mathematical world. The book collects high- quality, refereed research contributions by some of Professor Wilfs colleagues, students, and collaborators. Many of the papers presented here werefeatured in the Third Waterloo Workshop on Computer Algebra (WWCA 2011, W80), held May 26-29, 2011 at Wilfri d Laurier University, Waterloo, Canada. Others were included because of their relationship to his important work incombinatorics. All are presented as a tribute to Herb Wilfs contributions to mathematics and mathematical life

Title:Iris Runge [electronic resource] : A Life at the Crossroads of Mathematics, Science, and Industry
Author(s): Renate Tobies
Date:2012
Publisher:Basel : Springer Basel
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book concerns the origins of mathematical problem solving at the internationally active Osram and Telefunken Corporations during the golden years of broadcasting and electron tube research. The woman scientist Iris Runge,who received an interdis ciplinary education at the University of Gttingen, was long employed as the sole mathematical authority at these companies in Berlin. It will be shown how mathematical connections were made between statisticsand quality control, and between physical-chemi cal models and the actual problems of mass production. The organization of industrial laboratories, the relationship between theoretical and experimental work, and the role ofmathematicians in these settings will also be explained. By investigating the so cial, economic, and political conditions that unfolded from the time of the German Empire until the end of the Second World War, the book hopes to build abridge between specialized fields mathematics and engineering and the general culture of a particul ar era. It hopes, furthermore, to build a bridge between the history of science and industry, on the one hand, and the fields ofGender and Womens Studies on the other. Finally, by examining the life and work of numerous industrial researchers, insight wil l be offered into the conditions that enabled a woman to achieve a prominent professional position duringa time when women were typically excluded from the scientific workforce

Note:Light pollution is a major threat to astronomy across the entire developed world. The night sky that most of us can see bears little relationship to the spectacular vistas that our ancestors have gazed at fortens of thousands ofyears. It is ironic th at as our understanding of the universe has improved, our ability to see it has been dramatically reduced by the skyglow of our civilization. In the second edition of Light Pollution - Responses and Remedies, BobMizon delves into the history and practice of lighting and how its misue has not only stolen the stars, but blighted our lives and those of our fellow-creatures on this planet. This book suggests how we can win back the night sky andat the same time save energy and money, improve our health, and e ven lower crime rate! It also includes a list of targets for urban stargazers, and recommendations for ensuring sane lighting worldwide

Title:Fundamentals of Clinical Trials [electronic resource]

Date:2010
Edition:Fourth
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:This is the fourth edition of a very successful textbook on clinical trials methodology, written by three recognized experts who have long and extensive experience in all areas of clinical trials. Most chapters have been revisedconsiderably from the third edition. A chapter on ethics has been added and topics such as noninferiority and adaptive designs now receive considerable discussion. There is much new material on adverse events, adherence, datamonitoring, and issues in analysis. This book is int ended for the clinical researcher who is interested in designing a clinical trial and developing a protocol. It is also of value to researchers and practitioners who must criticallyevaluate the literature of published clinical trials and assess the merits of each trial and the implications for the care and treatment of patients. The authors use numerous examples of published clinical trials from a variety ofmedical disciplines to illustrate the fundamentals. The text is organized sequentially from definin g the question to trial closeout. One chapter is devoted to each of the critical areas to aid the clinical trial researcher. These areasinclude pre-specifying the scientific questions to be tested and appropriate outcome measures, determining the organiza tional structure, estimating an adequate sample size, specifying the randomization procedure, implementing theintervention and visit schedules for participant evaluation, establishing an interim data and safety monitoring plan, detailing the final analysi s plan, and reporting the trial results according to the pre-specified objectives.Although a basic introductory statistics course is helpful in maximizing the benefit of this book, a researcher or practitioner with limited statistical background would sti ll find most if not all the chapters understandable andhelpful. While the technical material has been kept to a minimum, the statistician may still find the principles and fundamentals presented in this

Note:The objective of this book is to make its readers better informed and more critical consumers of clinical research to help them recognize the strengths and the weaknesses of scientific publications. In doing so, the reader willbe able to distinguish patient-important and methodologically sound studies from those having limitations in design, conduct and interpretation. There are no prerequisites for reading this book. The text is basic and has no statisticalformulas. Key take-home messages are listed at the end of each chapter. The large number of cartoons has two purposes: First, to make the text easier to read and generate a few laughs and, second, to underscore specific points,sometimes in a provocative way. Bengt D. Furberg, MD, PhD is board-cert ified in internal medicine. After spending a decade as medical director in the pharmaceutical industry, he now serves as medical consultant, evaluating the safetyand efficacy of pharmaceutical products and medical devices and promoting evidence-based medi cine. His brother, Curt D. Furberg, MD, PhD, is Professor in the Division of Public Health Sciences, Wake Forest University School ofMedicine, Winston-Salem, NC, USA. After arriving in the United States from Sweden, he worked at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health for 12 years. He is co-author of Fundamentals ofClinical Trials with Lawrence M. Friedman and David L. DeMets. His areas of interest are clinical trials, evidence-based medicine and drug safety. The authors have acquired much of their knowledge about clinical studies through thetrial and error method. Thus, they have personal experience with many of the problems they describe

Title:Indirect Sampling [electronic resource]
Author(s): Pierre Lavalle
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:Following the classical sampling theory, the survey statistician selects samples of people, businesses or others, in order to obtain the desired information. Drawing the samples is usually done by randomly selecting from a listrepresenting the target population. In practice, this list is often not available. At best, the statistician only has access to a different list, indirectly related to the targeted population. The example of a survey of children wherethe statistician only has a list of adult pe rsons is a typical case. In this case, the statistician first draws a sample of adults, and for each selected adult, the statistician then identifies his/her children. The survey is done fromthe latter. This is what is called indirect sampling. When indir ect sampling is used jointly with the sampling of clusters of persons (families, for example), many complications arise for the survey statistician. One of thecomplications relates to the computation of the estimates from the survey. The production of est imates of simple totals or means can then become nightmares for the survey statistician. To solve this problem, the author proposes asimple solution, easy to implement, that is called the generalised weight share method. This book is the reference on indi rect sampling and the generalised weight share method. It contains the different developments done by the authoron these subjects. The theory surrounding them is presented, but also different possible applications that drive its interest. The reader will find in this book the answer to questions that come, inevitably, when working in a contextof indirect sampling. Pierre Lavalle has been a survey statistician at Statistics Canada since 1985. He gas worked in social, business, and agricultural surveys. He has also worked for Eurostat in Luxembourg

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. The software grew out of his work with colleagues at the Methodology Department of the Institute for ScienceEducation (IPN) in Kiel, Germany. Von Davier's current research is concerned with extensions of Rasch models and more general

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Analysis of variance (ANOVA) models have become widely used tools and play a fundamental role in much of the application of statistics today. In particular, ANOVA models involving random effects have found widespread applicationto experimental design in a variety of fields requiring measurements of variance, including agriculture, biology, animal breeding, applied genetics, econometrics, quality control, medicine, engineering, and social sciences. Thistwo-volume work is a comprehensive presentation o f different methods and techniques for point estimation, interval estimation, and tests of hypotheses for linear models involving random effects. Both Bayesian and repeated samplingprocedures are considered. Volume I examines models with balanced data (or thogonal models) Volume II studies models with unbalanced data (nonorthogonal models). Features and Topics: * Systematic treatment of the commonly employedcrossed and nested classification models used in analysis of variance designs * Detailed and thoroug h discussion of certain random effects models not commonly found in texts at the introductory or intermediate level * Numericalexamples to analyze data from a wide variety of disciplines * Many worked examples containing computer outputs from standard sof tware packages such as SAS, SPSS, and BMDP for each numerical example * Extensive exercise sets at the endof each chapter * Numerous appendices with background reference concepts, terms, and results * Balanced coverage of theory, methods, and practical ap plications * Complete citations of important and related works at the end of eachchapter, as well as an extensive general bibliography Accessible to readers with only a modest mathematical and statistical background, the work will appeal to a broad audien ce of students, researchers, and practitioners in themathematical, life, social, and engineering sciences. It may be used as a textbook in upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, or as a refere
