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
Author(s): Ilias S Kotsireas
Eugene V Zima

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, 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

Curt D Furberg
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: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
Author(s): Matthias Davier
Claus H Carstensen
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
