Title:Applied Data-Centric Social Sciences [electronic resource] : Concepts, Data, Computation, and Theory
Author(s): Aki-Hiro Sato
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Applied data-centric social sciences aim to develop both methodology and practical applications of various fields of social sciences and businesses with rich data. Specifically, in the social sciences, a vast amount of data onhuman activities may be useful for understanding collective human nature. In this book, the author introduces several mathematical techniques for handling a huge volume of data and analysing collective human behaviour. The book isconstructed from data-oriented investigation, wit h mathematical methods and expressions used for dealing with data for several specific problems. The fundamental philosophy underlying the book is that both mathematical and physicalconcepts are determined by the purposes of data analysis. This philosophy is shown throughout exemplar studies of several fields in socio-economic systems. From a data-centric point of view, the author proposes a concept that maychange peoples minds and cause them to start thinking from the basis of data. Several goals underli e the chapters of the book. The first is to describe mathematical and statistical methods for data analysis, and toward that end theauthor delineates methods with actual data in each chapter. The second is to find a cyber-physical link between data and da ta-generating mechanisms, as data are always provided by some kind of data-generating process in the real world.The third goal is to provide an impetus for the concepts and methodology set forth in this book to be applied to socio-economic systems

Title:The Welsh Language in the Digital Age [electronic resource]
Author(s): Georg Rehm
Hans Uszkoreit
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This white paper is part of a series that promotes knowledge about language technology and its potential. It addresses educators, journalists, politicians, language communities and others. The availability and use of languagetechnology in Europe vari es between languages. Consequently, the actions that are required to further support research and development of language technologies also differ for each language. The required actions depend on many factors,such as the complexity of a given language an d the size of its community. META-NET, a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission, has conducted an analysis of current language resources and technologies. This analysisfocused on the 23 official European languages as well as other importa nt national and regional languages in Europe. The results of this analysis suggest that there are many significant research gaps for each language. A more detailedexpert analysis and assessment of the current situation will help maximise the impact of add itional research and minimize any risks. META-NET consists of 54 research centres from 33 countries that are working with stakeholders fromcommercial businesses, government agencies, industry, research organisations, software companies, technology provide rs and European universities. Together, they are creating a common technology vision while developing a strategicresearch agenda that shows how language technology applications can address any research gaps by 2020

Title:Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers [electronic resource]
Author(s): Milan Holick
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:The theory of probability and mathematical statistics is becoming an indispensable discipline in many branches of science and engineering. This is caused by increasing significance of various uncertainties affecting performance ofcomplex technologica l systems. Fundamental concepts and procedures used in analysis of these systems are often based on the theory of probability and mathematical statistics. The book sets out fundamental principles of the probabilitytheory, supplemented by theoretical model s of random variables, evaluation of experimental data, sampling theory, distribution updating and tests of statistical hypotheses. Basic concepts of Bayesian approach to probability andtwo-dimensional random variables, are also covered. Examples of relia bility analysis and risk assessment of technological systems are used throughout the book to illustrate basic theoretical concepts and their applications. The primaryaudience for the book includes undergraduate and graduate students of science and enginee ring, scientific workers and engineers and specialists in the field of reliability analysis and risk assessment. Except basic knowledge ofundergraduate mathematics no special prerequisite is required

Title:Bayesian Hierarchical Space-Time Models with Application to Significant Wave Height [electronic resource]
Author(s): Erik Vanem
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 book provides an example of a thorough statistical treatment in space and time of ocean wave data. It is demonstrated how the flexible framework of Bayesian hierarchical space-time models can be applied to oceanographicprocesses such as signific ant wave height in order to describe dependence structures and uncertainties in the data. This monograph is a research book and it is in some sense cross-disciplinary. The methodology itself is firmly rootedin the statistical research tradition, based on probability theory and stochastic processes. However, the methodology has been applied to a problem within physical oceanography, analysing data for significant wave height, which are ofcrucial importance to ocean engineering disciplines. Indeed, the stat istical properties of significant wave height are important for the design, construction and operation of ships and other marine and coastal structures. Furthermore,the book addresses the question of whether climate change has an effect of the ocean wave climate, and if so what these effects might be. Thus, this book is an important contribution to the on-going debate on climate change, itsimplications and how to adapt to a changing climate, with a particular focus on the maritime industries and the marin e environment. This book should be of general interest to anyone with an interest in statistical modelling ofenvironmental processes, and in particular to those with a particular interest in the ocean wave climate. It is written on a level that should be understandable to everyone with a basic background in statistics or elementarymathematics, and an introduction to some basic concepts is given in appendices for the uninitiated reader. The intended readership incudes students and professionals involved in statistics, oceanography, ocean engineering,environmental research, climate sciences and risk assessment. Moreover, different stakeholders within the maritime industries such as design offices, classif

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes EnvStats, a new comprehensive R package for environmental statistics. EnvStats and R provide an open-source set of powerful functions for performing graphical and statistical analyses of environmental data,along with an extensive hypertext help system that explains what these methods do, how to use them, and where to find them in the environmental statistics literature. EnvStats also includes numerous built-in data sets from regulatoryguidance documents, state and federal database s, and the literature. This book shows how to use EnvStats and R to easily: * Graphically display environmental data and probability distributions * Deal with non-detect (censored) data *Perform and plot results of goodness-of-fit tests * Compare chemical concentrations to a protection standard using confidence intervals for percentiles or parameters * Assess compliance at multiple sites for multiple constituents usingsimultaneous prediction limits * Test for trend accounting for seasons and serial correl ation * Perform power and sample size computations with companion plots for sampling designs based on hypothesis tests, confidence intervals,prediction intervals, or tolerance intervals * Perform probabilistic risk assessment using Monte Carlo simulation * Reproduce specific examples in EPA guidance documents EnvStats combined with other R packages provide the environmentalscientist, statistician, researcher, and technician with tools to get the job done! Steven P. Millard, Ph.D., is an independent statis tical consultant and Senior Biostatistician at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System inSeattle, Washington, and has worked in the field of environmental and health care statistics for over 25 years. He has worked at the US Geological Survey, CH2M Hill, th e University of California at Santa Barbara, Saint MartinsCollege, Insightful Corporation, and the Cystic Fibrosis Therapeutics Development Network Coordinating Center.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Strategic Economic Decision-Making: Using Bayesian Belief Networks to Solve Complex Problems is a quick primer on the topic that introduces readers to the basic complexities and nuances associated with learning Bayes theoryand inverse probability for the first time. This brief is meant for non-statisticians who are unfamiliar with Bayes theorem,walkingthem through the theoretical phases of set and sample set selection, the axioms of probability,probability theory as it pertains to Bayes theorem, and posterior probabilities. All of these concepts are explained as they appear in the methodology of fitting a Bayes model, and upon completion of the text readers will be ableto mathematically determine posterior probabilities of multiple independent nodes across any system available for study. Very little has been published in the area of discrete Bayes theory, and this brief will appeal tonon-statisticians conducting research in the fields of engineering, computing, life sciences, and social sciences.

Note:This white paper is part of a series that promotes knowledge about language technology and its potential. It addresses educators, journalists, politicians, language communities and others. The availability and use of languagetechnology in Europe vari es between languages. Consequently, the actions that are required to further support research and development of language technologies also differ for each language. The required actions depend on many factors,such as the complexity of a given language an d the size of its community. META-NET, a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission, has conducted an analysis of current language resources and technologies. This analysisfocused on the 23 official European languages as well as other importa nt national and regional languages in Europe. The results of this analysis suggest that there are many significant research gaps for each language. A more detailedexpert analysis and assessment of the current situation will help maximise the impact of add itional research and minimize any risks. META-NET consists of 54 research centres from 33 countries that are working with stakeholders fromcommercial businesses, government agencies, industry, research organisations, software companies, technology provide rs and European universities.

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Because statistical confidentiality embraces the responsibility for both protecting data and ensuring its beneficial use for statistical purposes, those working with personal and proprietary data can benefit from the principlesand practices this book presents. Researchers can understand why an agency holding statistical data does not respond well to the demand, Just give me the data Im only going to do good things with it. Statisticians canincorporate the requirements of statistical confidentiality i nto their methodologies for data collection and analysis. Data stewards, caught between those eager for data and those who worry about confidentiality, can use the tools ofstatistical confidentiality toward satisfying both groups. The eight chapters lay o ut the dilemma of data stewardship organizations (such as statistical agencies) in resolving the tension between protecting data from snoopers whileproviding data to legitimate users, explain disclosure risk and explore the types of attack that a data sno oper might mount, present the methods of disclosure risk assessment, give techniques for statistical disclosure limitation ofboth tabular data and microdata, identify measures of the impact of disclosure limitation on data utility, provide restricted acce ss methods as administrative procedures for disclosure control, and finally explore the future ofstatistical confidentiality. George T. Duncan is Professor of Statistics, Emeritus, Carnegie Mellon University. He chaired the National Academy of Sciences Pa nel on Confidentiality and Data Access. Mark Elliot is lecturer in socialstatistics at Manchester University in the UK, consultant to data stewardship organisations worldwide, and inventor of methods for assessing disclosure risk. J.J.

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Portfolio analysis and optimization, together with the associated risk assessment and management, require knowledge of the likely distributions of returns at different time scales and insights into the nature and properties ofdependences between the different assets. This book offers an original and thorough treatment of these two domains, focusing mainly on the concepts and tools that remain valid for large and extreme price moves. Strong emphasis isplaced on the theory of copulas and their empirica l testing and calibration, because they offer intrinsic and complete measures of dependences. Extreme Financial Risks will be useful to: students looking for a general and in-depthintroduction to the field financial engineers, economists, econometricians, actuarial professionals researchers and mathematicians looking for a synoptic view comparing the pros and cons of different modelling strategies andquantitative practitioners for the insights offered on the subtleties and the many dimensional components of both risk and dependence. In toto, the content of this book will also be useful to a broader scientific community interestedin quantifying the complexity of many natural and artificial processes in which a growing emphasis is on the role and importance of extreme phenomena

Note:This book provides a broad introduction to the fascinating subject of environmental space-time processes addressing the role of uncertainty. Within that context, it covers a spectrum of technical matters from measurement toenvironmental epidemiology to risk assessment. It showcases non-stationary vector-valued processes, while treating stationarity as a special case. The contents reflect the authors cumulative knowledge gained over many years ofconsulting and research collaboration. In particular, wi th members of their research group, they developed within a hierarchical Bayesian framework, the new statistical approaches presented in the book for analyzing, modeling, andmonitoring environmental spatio-temporal processes. Furthermore they indicate new directions for development. This book contains technical and non-technical material and it is written for statistical scientists as well as consultants,subject area researchers and students in related fields. Novel chapters present the authors hierarchic al Bayesian approaches to spatially interpolating environmental processes designing networks to monitor environmental processesmultivariate extreme value theory incorporating risk assessment. In addition, they present a comprehensive and critical survey o f other approaches, highlighting deficiencies that their method seeks to overcome.

Title:Introduction to Modern Portfolio optimization with NUOPT and S-PLUS [electronic resource]
Author(s): Bernd Scherer
R. Douglas Martin
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:In recent years portfolio optimization and construction methodologies have become an increasingly critical ingredient of asset and fund management, while at the same time portfolio risk assessment has become an essentialingredient in risk management, and this trend will only accelerate in the coming years. Unfortunately there is a large gap between the limited treatment of portfolio construction methods that are presented in most university courseswith relatively little hands-on experience and limite d computing tools, and the rich and varied aspects of portfolio construction that are used in practice in the finance industry. Current practice demands the use of modern methods ofportfolio construction that go well beyond the classical Markowitz mean-va riance optimality theory and require the use of powerful scalable numerical optimization methods. This book fills the gap between current university instructionand current industry practice by providing a comprehensive computationally-oriented treatment o f modern portfolio optimization and construction methods. The computational aspect of the book is based on extensive use of S-Plus, theS+NuOPT optimization module, the S-Plus Robust Library and the S+Bayes Library, along with about 100 S-Plus scripts and some CRSP sample data sets of stock returns. A special time-limited version of the S-Plus software isavailable to purchasers of this book. For money managers and investment professionals in the field, optimization is truly a can of worms rather left un-op ened, until now! Here lies a thorough explanation of almost all possibilitiesone can think of for portfolio optimization, complete with error estimation techniques and explanation of when non-normality plays a part. A highly recommended and practical hand book for the consummate professional and student alike!Steven P. Greiner, Ph.D. Chief Large Cap Quant & Fundamental Research Manager Harris Investment Management The authors take a huge ste
