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: | The Weyl Operator and its Generalization [electronic resource] |

Note: | This book deals with the theory and application of associating a function of two variables with a function of two operators that do not commute. The concept of associating ordinary functions with operators has arisen in many areasof science and mathe matics, and up to the beginning of the twentieth century many isolated results were obtained. These developments were mostly based on associating a function of one variable with one operator, the operator generallybeing the differentiation operator. With the discovery of quantum mechanics in the years 1925-1930, there arose, in a natural way, the issue that one has to associate a function of two variables with a function of two operators that donot commute. Methods to do so became known as rules of associ ation, correspondence rules, or ordering rules. This has led to a wonderfully rich mathematical development that has found applications in many fields. Subsequently it wasrealized that for every correspondence rule there is a corresponding phase-space dis tribution. Now the fields of correspondence rules and phase-space distributions are intimately connected. A similar development occurred in the fieldof time-frequency analysis where the aim is to understand signals with changing frequencies. The Weyl Oper ator and Its Generalization aims at bringing together the basic results of the field in a unified manner. A wide audience isaddressed, particularly students and researchers who want to obtain an up-to-date working knowledge of the field. The mathematics i s accessible to the uninitiated reader and is presented in a straightforward manner |

Note: | Hilbert space frames have long served as a valuable tool for signal and image processing due to their resilience to additive noise, quantization, and erasures, as well as their ability to capture valuable signalcharacteristics. More recently, finite frame theory has grown into an important research topic in its own right, with a myriad of applications to pure and applied mathematics, engineering, computer science, and other areas. Thenumber of research publications, conferences, and workshops on this topic has increased dramatically over the past few years, but no survey paper or monograph has yet appeared on the subject. Edited by two of the leading experts in thefield, Finite Frames aims to fill this void in the literature by providing a comprehens ive, systematic study of finite frame theory and applications. With carefully selected contributions written by highly experienced researchers, itcovers topics including: * Finite Frame Constructions * Optimal Erasure Resilient Frames * Quantization of Fi nite Frames * Finite Frames and Compressed Sensing * Group and Gabor Frames * Fusion Frames. Despite the variety of itschapters' source and content, the book's notation and terminology are unified throughout and provide a definitive picture of the current state of frame theory. With a broad range of applications and a clear, full presentation, thisbook is a highly valuable resource for graduate students and researchers across disciplines such as applied harmonic analysis, electrical engineering, quantum c omputing, medicine, and more. It is designed to be used as a supplementaltextbook, self-study guide, or reference book |

Note: | This introductory and self-contained book gathers as much explicit mathematical results on the linear-elastic and heat-conduction solutions in the neighborhood of singular points in two-dimensional domains, and singular edgesand vertices in three-dim ensional domains. These are presented in an engineering terminology for practical usage. The author treats the mathematical formulations from an engineering viewpoint and presents high-orderfinite-element methods for the computation of singular solutions in isotropic and anisotropic materials, and multi-material interfaces. The proper interpretation of the results in engineering practice is advocated, so that thecomputed data can be correlated to experimental observations. The book is divided into fourte en chapters, each containing several sections. Most of it (the first nine Chapters) addresses two-dimensional domains, where only singularpoints exist. The solution in a vicinity of these points admits an asymptotic expansion composed of eigenpairs and as sociatedgeneralized flux/stress intensity factors (GFIFs/GSIFs), which are being computed analytically when possibleor by finite element methods otherwise. Singular points associated with weakly coupled thermoelasticity in the vicinity of singularities ar e also addressed and thermal GSIFs are computed. The computed data is important in engineeringpractice forpredicting failure initiation in brittlematerials on a daily basis. Several failure lawsfor two-dimensional domains with V-notches arepresented and t heir validity is examined by comparison to experimentalobservations.A sufficient simple and reliable condition for predicting failureinitiation (crack formation) in micron level electronic devices, involving singularpoints, is still a topic of active rese arch and interest, and isaddressed herein. Explicit singular solutions in the vicinity of vertices and edges in three-dimensional domains are provided in the rem |

Note: | This book chronicles the development of graph factors and factorizations. It pursues a comprehensive approach, addressing most of the important results from hundreds of findings over the last century. One of the main themes is theobservation that man y theorems can be proved using only a few standard proof techniques. This stands in marked contrast to the seemingly countless, complex proof techniques offered by the extant body of papers and books. In addition tocovering the history and development of this area, the book offers conjectures and discusses open problems. It also includes numerous explanatory figures that enable readers to progressively and intuitively understand the mostimportant notions and proofs in the area of factors and factorization |

Note: | R is a powerful and free software system for data analysis and graphics, with over 4,000 add-on packages available. This book introduces R using SAS and SPSS terms with which you are already familiar. It demonstrates which of theadd-on packages are m ost like SAS and SPSS and compares them to R's built-in functions. It steps through over 50 programs written in all three packages, comparing and contrasting the packages' differing approaches. The glossary definesR terms using SAS/SPSS terminology and ag ain using R terminology. The table of contents and the index allow you to find equivalent R functions by looking up both SAS statements and SPSS commands. The second edition adds 216 pages ofnew topics. I found the book extremely helpfulThe material is la id out in a way that makes it very accessible. Because of this I recommend this book to any R user regardless of his or her familiarity with SAS or SPSS...For new Rusers it will demystify many aspects, and for existing R users it will have many answers to those questions you have been too afraid to ask in public. --The American Statistician an excellent introduction to Rthe bookmeticulously covers data management, data structures, programming, graphics and basic statistical analysis in R. The prose is cle ar, the examples tied to their SPSS and SAS analogs. The handling of both traditional and newerggplot2 graphics is comprehensive: SPSS and SAS users will undoubtedly find lots to like. --Information Management As a long time SAS user this book makes the task of transition to R much more palatable and appealing. Italso greatly reduces the time to get up and running in R effectively. --Technometrics It is great to see this book in a second edition. It serves nicely as an introduction to R, irrespective of whether they are familiar with SASor SPSS. I have long been a fan of programming by example and the book is full of excellent ones. --Graham Williams, Author, Data M |

Note: | In Miletus, about 550 B.C., together with our world-picture cosmology was born. This book tells the story. In Part One the reader is introduced in the archaic world-picture of a flat earth with the cupola of the celestial vaultonto whichthe celestial bodies are attached. One of the subjects treated in that context is the riddle of the tilted celestial axis. This part also contains an extensive chapter on archaic astronomical instruments.Part Twoshowshow Anaximander (610-547 B.C.) blew up this archaic world-picture and replaced it by a new one that is essentially still ours. He taught that the celestial bodies orbit at different distances and that the earth floats unsupported inspace. This makes him the founding father of cosmology.Part Threediscusses topics that completed the new picturedescribed by Anaximander. Special attention is paid to the confrontation between Anaxagoras and Aristotle on thequestion whether the earth is flat or spherical, and on the battlebetween Aristotle and Heraclides Pontic us on the question whether the universe is finite or infinite. In this book, Dirk L. Couprie presents his efforts atclarifying the views of the pioneers of theoretical cosmology. It covers the crucial period from about the middle of the sixth until the mi ddle of the fourth century B.C., with its focus on the magnificent figure of Anaximander. Thebook by Dirk Couprie constitutes an important and in several respects indispensable contribution to this field. Dmitri Panchenko St. Petersburg State University |

Note: | The theory of directed graphs has developed enormously over recent decades, yet this book (first published in 2000) remains the only book to cover more than a small fraction of the results. New research in the field has made asecond edition a necessi ty. Substantially revised, reorganised and updated, the book now comprises eighteen chapters, carefully arranged in a straightforward and logical manner, with many new results and open problems. As well ascovering the theoretical aspects of the subject, w ith detailed proofs of many important results, the authors present a number of algorithms, and whole chapters are devoted to topics such as branchings, feedback arc and vertex sets,connectivity augmentations, sparse subdigraphs with prescribed connectivit y, and also packing, covering and decompositions of digraphs. Throughout the book, there is a strong focus on applications which include quantum mechanics,bioinformatics, embedded computing, and the travelling salesman problem. Detailed indices and topic- oriented chapters ease navigation, and more than 650 exercises, 170 figures and 150 open problems are included to help immerse thereader in all aspects of the subject. Digraphs is an essential, comprehensive reference for undergraduate and graduate studen ts, and researchers in mathematics, operations research and computer science. It will also prove invaluable tospecialists in related areas, such as meteorology, physics and computational biology.

Note: | During the past decade there has been an explosion in computation and information technology. With it have come vast amounts of data in a variety of fields such as medicine, biology, finance, and marketing. The challenge ofunderstanding these data ha s led to the development of new tools in the field of statistics, and spawned new areas such as data mining, machine learning, and bioinformatics. Many of these tools have common underpinnings but are oftenexpressed with different terminology. This book d escribes the important ideas in these areas in a common conceptual framework. While the approach is statistical, the emphasis is on concepts rather than mathematics. Many examples aregiven, with a liberal use of color graphics. It is a valuable resource f or statisticians and anyone interested in data mining in science or industry. The book's coverage is broad, from supervised learning (prediction) to unsupervisedlearning. The many topics include neural networks, support vector machines, classification tre es and boosting---the first comprehensive treatment of this topic in any book. This major new edition features many topics not covered in theoriginal, including graphical models, random forests, ensemble methods, least angle regression and path algorithms for the lasso, non-negative matrix factorization, and spectral clustering. There is also a chapter on methods for``wide'' data (p bigger than n), including multiple testing and false discovery rates. Trevor Hastie, Robert Tibshirani, and Jerome Friedman are professors of statistics at Stanford University. They are prominent researchers in thisarea: Hastie and Tibshirani developed generalized additive models and wrote a popular book of that title. Hastie co-developed much of the statistical modeling softw are and environment in R/S-PLUS and invented principal curves andsurfaces. Tibshirani proposed the lasso and is co-author of the very successful An Introduction to the Bootstrap. Friedman is the co-inve |

Note: | Linear algebra is a living, active branch of mathematics which is central to almost all other areas of mathematics, both pure and applied, as well as computer science, the physical and social sciences, and engineering. It entailsan extensive corpus o f theoretical results as well as a large body of computational techniques. The book is intended to be used in one of several possible ways: (1) as a self-study guide (2) as a textbook for a course in advancedlinear algebra, either at the upper-class under graduate level or at the first-year graduate level or (3) as a reference book. It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portion of prelim exams or PhD qualifyingexams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assu me any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, to some basic ideas and techniques, suchas the solution of a small system of linear equations over the real numbers. More important ly, it does assume a seriousness of purpose and a modicum of mathematical sophistication. The book also contains over 1000 exercises, many ofwhich are very challenging |

Title: | A Remarkable Collection of Babylonian Mathematical Texts [electronic resource] Manuscripts in the Schyen Collection Cuneiform Texts I |

Note: | This new text from Jran Friberg, the leading expert on Babylonian mathematics, presents 130 previously unpublished mathematical clay tablets from the Norwegian Schyen collection, and provides a synthesis of the author's mostimportant work. Through a close study of these tablets, Friberg has made numerous amazing discoveries, including the first known examples of pre-Classical labyrinths and mazes, a new understanding of the famous table text Plimpton 322,and new evidence of Babylonian familiarity wit h sophisticated mathematical ideas and objects, such as the three-dimensional Pythagorean equation and the icosahedron. In order to make the text accessible to the largest possibleaudience, the author has included an introductory chapter entitled, How to get a better understanding of mathematical cuneiform texts. Throughout the text he avoids anachronisms and makes every effort to teach the reader to do thesame. The approach in this book is inherently pedagogical, as Friberg illustrates all the steps of t he process of interpretation and clearly explains the mathematical ideas, including terminology, metrological systems, and methods ofcalculation. Drawings and color photos of a large selection of tablets are also included. Particularly beautiful hand copi es of the most complicated texts were made by Farouk Al-Rawi, professor of Ancient Languages and Archaeology atBaghdad University. While the book is reader-friendly, it remains as detailed and exhaustive as possible. It is the most comprehensive treatment of a set of Babylonian mathematical texts ever published and will open up this subject toa new generation of students, mathematicians, and historians of science. Jran Friberg is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Chalmers University of Technology, Swed en. He has recently published the book Unexpected Links BetweenEgyptian and Babylonian Mathematics (World Scientific 2005), and its sequel Amazing Traces of a Babylonian Origin in Greek Mathemat |

Note: | This book presents the authors new method of two-stage maximization of likelihood function, which helps to solve a series of non-solving before the well-posed and ill-posed problems of pseudosolution computing systems oflinear algebraic equations (or , in statistical terminology, parameters estimators of functional relationships) and linear integral equations in the presence of deterministic and random errors in the initial data. This book, for thefirst time, presents a solution of the problem of reci procal influence of passive errors of regressors and of active errors of predictors by computing point estimators of functional relationships. Audience This book is intended forstudents, postgraduate students, scientists, and other researchers on handling economical and technical data. The book is especially intended for those who constantly use regression analysis in their own research and for those whocreate the mathematical software for computers |
