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: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:Learning Regression Analysis by Simulation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Kunio Takezawa
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The standard approach of most introductory books for practical statistics is that readers first learn the minimum mathematical basics of statistics and rudimentary concepts of statistical methodology. They then are given examplesof analyses of data o btained from natural and social phenomena so that they can grasp practical definitions of statistical methods. Finally they go on to acquaint themselves with statistical software for the PC and analyze similar datato expand and deepen their understanding of statistical methods. This book, however, takes a slightly different approach, using simulation data instead of actual data to illustrate the functions of statistical methods. Also, Rprograms listed in the book help readers realize clearly how these met hods work to bring intrinsic values of data to the surface. R is free software enabling users to handle vectors, matrices, data frames, and so on. For example,when a statistical theory indicates that an event happens with a 5 % probability, readers can co nfirm the fact using R programs that this event actually occurs with roughly that probability, by handling data generated bypseudo-random numbers. Simulation gives readers populations with known backgrounds and the nature of the population can be adjusted easily. This feature of the simulation data helps provide a clear picture of statistical methodspainlessly. Most readers of introductory books of statistics for practical purposes do not like complex mathematical formulae, but they do not mind using a PC to produce various numbers and graphs by handling a huge variety of numbers.If they know the characteristics of these numbers beforehand, they treat them with ease. Struggling with actual data should come later. Conventional books on this topic frighten readers by presenting unidentified data to themindiscriminately. This book provides a new path to statistical concepts and practical skills in a readily accessible manner

Author(s): Hubert Anton Moser
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on systems engineering, systems thinking, and how that thinking can be learned in practice. It describes a novel analytical framework based on activity theory for understanding how systems thinking evolves andhow it can be improved to support multidisciplinary teamwork in the context of system development and systems engineering. This method, developed using data collected over four years from three different small space systems engineeringorganizations, can be applied in a wide var iety of work activities in the context of engineering design and beyond in order to monitor and analyze multidisciplinary interactions in working teams over time. In addition, the bookpresents a practical strategy called WAVES (Work Activity for a Evoluti on of Systems engineering and thinking), which fosters the practical learning of systems thinking with the aim of improving process development in differentindustries. The book offers an excellent resource for researchers and practitioners interested in s ystems thinking and in solutions to support its evolution. Beyond its contribution to a better understanding of systems engineering,systems thinking and how it can be learned in real-world contexts, it also introduce a suitable analysis framework that hel ps to bridge the gap between the latest social science research and engineering research.

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

Title:Alfred Tarski [electronic resource] : Early Work in PolandGeometry and Teaching
Author(s): Andrew McFarland
Joanna McFarland
James T Smith
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:Alfred Tarski (19011983) was a renowned Polish/American mathematician, a giant of the twentieth century, who helped establish the foundations of geometry, set theory, model theory, algebraic logic, and universal algebra.Throughout his career, he taug ht mathematics and logic at universities and sometimes in secondary schools. Many of his writings before 1939 were in Polish and remained inaccessible to most mathematicians and historians until now. Thisself-contained book focuses on Tarskis early contri butions to geometry and mathematics education, including the famous BanachTarski paradoxical decomposition of a sphere as well as high-school mathematical topics and pedagogy.These themes are significant since Tarskis later research on geometry and its fo undations stemmed in part from his early employment as a high-school mathematics teacher and teacher-trainer. The book contains careful translations andmuch newly uncovered social background of these works written during Tarskis years in Poland. Alfred Ta rski: Early Work in PolandGeometry and Teaching serves the mathematical, educational, philosophical, and historicalcommunities by publishing Tarskis early writings in a broadly accessible form, providing background from archival work in Poland, and updati ng Tarskis bibliography

Note:Complexity Science and Chaos Theory are fascinating areas of scientific research with wide-ranging applications. The interdisciplinary nature and ubiquity of complexity and chaos are features that provides scientists with amotivation to pursue genera l theoretical tools and frameworks. Complex systems give rise to emergent behaviors, which in turn produce novel and interesting phenomena in science, engineering, as well as in the socio-economic sciences.The aim of all Symposia on Chaos and Complex Syst ems (CCS) is to bring together scientists, engineers, economists and social scientists, and to discuss the latest insights and results obtained in the area of correspondingnonlinear-system complex (chaotic) behavior. Especially for the 4th International I nterdisciplinary Chaos Symposium on Chaos and Complex Systems, which took place April 29th to May 2nd, 2012 in Antalya, Turkey, the scope of thesymposium had been further enlarged so as to encompass the presentation of work from circuits to econophysics, and from nonlinear analysis to the history of chaos theory. The corresponding proceedings collected in this volumeaddress a broad spectrum of contemporary topics, including but not limited to networks, circuits, systems, biology, evolution and ecology, n onlinear dynamics and pattern formation, as well as neural, psychological, psycho-social,socio-economic, management complexity and global systems

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

Title:Simulating Social Complexity [electronic resource] : A Handbook

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform

Note:Social systems are among the most complex known. This poses particular problems for those who wish to understand them. The complexity often makes analytic approaches infeasible and natural language approaches inadequate forrelating intricate cause an d effect. However, individual- and agent-based computational approaches hold out the possibility of new and deeper understanding of such systems. Simulating Social Complexity examines all aspects of usingagent- or individual-based simulation. This approac h represents systems as individual elements having each their own set of differing states and internal processes. The interactions between elements in the simulation representinteractions in the target systems. What makes these elements social is that the y are usefully interpretable as interacting elements of an observed society. In this, the focus is on human society, but can be extended to includesocial animals or artificial agents where such work enhances our understanding of human society. The phenome na of interest then result (emerge) from the dynamics of the interaction of social actors in an essential way and are usuallynot easily simplifiable by, for example, considering only representative actors. The introduction of accessible agent-based modell ing allows the representation of social complexity in a more natural and direct manner than previoustechniques. In particular, it is no longer necessary to distort a model with the introduction of overly strong assumptions simply in order to obtain analyt ic tractability. This makes agent-based modelling relatively accessible to arange of scientists. The outcomes of such models can be displayed and animated in ways that also make them more interpretable by experts and stakeholders. This handbook is intende d to help in the process of maturation of this newfield. It brings together, through the collaborative effort of many leading researchers, summaries of the best thinking and practice in this a

Note:Dynamics of Information Systems: Algorithmic Approaches presents recent developments and results found by participants of the Fourth International Conference on the Dynamics of Information Systems, which took place at theUniversity of Florida, Gaines ville FL, USA on February 2022, 2012. The purpose of this conference was to bring together scientists and engineers from industry, government, and universities to exchange knowledge and results in abroad range of topics relevant to the theory and practice of the dynamics of information systems. Dynamics of Information plays an increasingly critical role in our society. The influence of information on social, biological, genetic,and military systems must be better understood to achieve large advances in th e capability and understanding of these systems. Applications are widespread and include: detection of terrorist networks, design of highly efficientbusinesses, computer networks, quantum entanglement, genome modeling, multi-robotic systems, and industria l and manufacturing safety. The book contains state-of-the-art work on theory and practice relevant to the dynamics ofinformation systems. It covers algorithmic approaches to numerical computations with infinite and infinitesimal numbers presents importan t problems arising in service-oriented systems, such as dynamic composition and analysis ofmodern service-oriented information systems and estimation of customer service times on a rail network from GPS data addresses the complexity of the problems arisin g in stochastic and distributed systems and discusses modulatingcommunication for improving multi-agent learning convergence. Network issuesin particular minimum-risk maximum-clique problems, vulnerability of sensor networks, influence diffusion, communit y detection, and link prediction insocial network analysis, as well as a comparative analysis of algorithms for transmission network expansion planningare described in later chapters

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Arnold Sommerfeld (1868-1951) belongs with Max Planck (1858-1947), Albert Einstein (1879-1955) and Niels Bohr (1885-1962) among the founders of modern theoretical physics, a science that developed into a budding discipline duringhis lifetime. Sommerf eld witnessed many of the most dramatic scientific, cultural and political events of this era. His correspondence with his family offers a vivid testament to the challenges and joys of a life in science. Thisbiography attempts to reconstruct Sommerfelds l ife and work not only from the perspective of his achievements in theoretical physics but also with the goal of portraying the career of a scientist within the social and politicalenvironment in which it evolved. It is based to a large extent on Sommerfel ds voluminous correspondence, which sheds light both on his private and scientific life. Furthermore, it provides an authentic view on the circumstances thatshaped Sommerfelds career in different places Knigsberg, Gttingen, Clausthal, Aachen, Munich and in different institutional and disciplinary settings mineralogy, mathematics, engineering, physics. Although thisbiography is not a study of Sommerfelds school, it also renders transparent what made this group of physicists so unique and gave its founde r the aura of a charismatic teacher. This becomes particularly evident in the reverence withwhich he was received by his hosts during his travels all over the world travels that Sommerfeld perceived as cultural missions. International politics, personal zeal and scientific interests became closely entangled at suchoccasions. Such an entanglement is by no means uncommon in the history of science but it is rarely observed so persistently as in Sommerfelds case

Note:This work aims to foster the interdisciplinary dialogue between mathematicians and socio-economic scientists. Interaction among scholars and practitioners traditionally coming from different research areas is necessary more thanever in order to bette r understand many real-world problems we face today. On the one hand, mathematicians need economists and social scientists to better address the methodologies they design in a more realistic way on the otherhand, economists and social scientists need to be aware of sound mathematical modelling tools in order to understand and, ultimately, solve the complex problems they encounter in their research. With this goal in mind, this work isdesigned to take into account a multidisciplinary approach that will e ncourage the transfer of knowledge, ideas, and methodology from one discipline to the other. In particular, the work has three main themes: Demystifying andunravelling complex systems Introducing models of individual behaviours in the social and economic sciences Modelling socio-economic sciences as complex living systems. Specific tools examined in the work include a recentlydeveloped modelling approach using stochastic game theory within the framework of statistical mechanics and progressing up to mod eling Darwinian evolution. Special attention is also devoted to social network theory as a fundamentalinstrument for the understanding of socio-economic systems

Note:This self-contained book systematically explores the statistical dynamics on and of complex networks with a specialfocus on time-varying networks. In the constantly changing modern world, there is an urgent need to understandproblems related to syste ms that dynamically evolve in either structure or function, or both. Thiswork is an attempt to address such problems in the framework of complex networks. Dynamics on and of Complex Networks, Volume 2:Applications to Time-Varying Dynamical Systems is a co llection of surveys and cutting-edge research contributions exploring key issues, challenges, and characteristics of dynamical networks that emerge in various complex systems.Toward this goal, the work is thematically organized into three main sections wi th the primary thrust on time-varying networks: Part I studies social dynamics Part II focuses on community identification and Part III illustratesdiffusion processes. The contributed chapters in this volume are intended to promote cross-fertilization in several research areas and will be valuable to newcomers in the field, experienced researchers, practitioners, and graduatestudents interested in pursuing research in dynamical networks with applications to computer science, statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, linguistics, and the social sciences.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Hidden HarmonyGeometric Fantasies describes the history of complex function theory from its origins to 1914, when the essential features of the modern theory were in place. It is the first history of mathematics devoted tocomplex function theory, and it draws on a wide range of published and unpublished sources. In addition to an extensive and detailed coverage of the three founders of the subjectCauchy, Riemann, and Weierstrassit looks at thecontributions of great mathematicians from dAlembert to Po incar, and Laplace to Weyl. Select chapters examine the rise and importance of elliptic function theory, differential equations in the complex domain, geometric functiontheory, and the early years of complex function theory in several variables. Unique em phasis has been placed on the creation of a textbook tradition in complex analysis by considering some seventy textbooks in nine different languages.This book is not a mere sequence of disembodied results and theories, but offers a comprehensive picture o f the broad cultural and social context in which the main players lived and worked by paying attention to the rise ofmathematical schools and of contrasting national traditions. This work is unrivaled for its breadth and depth, both in the core theory and its implications for other fields of mathematics. It is a major resource for professionalmathematicians as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students and anyone studying complex function theory

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 Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know [electronic resource]

Edition:3rd ed. 2012
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
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 to computer science, to the physical, biological, and social sciences, and toengineering. It encompa sses an extensive corpus of theoretical results as well as a large and rapidly-growing body of computational techniques. Unfortunately, in the past decade, the content of linear algebra courses required tocomplete an undergraduate degree in mathematics ha s been depleted to the extent that they fail to provide a sufficient theoretical or computational background. Students are not only less able to formulate or even follow mathematicalproofs, they are also less able to understand the mathematics of the nume rical algorithms they need for applications. Certainly, the material presented in the average undergraduate course is insufficient for graduate study. This bookis intended to fill the gap which has developed by providing enough theoretical and computation al material to allow the advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate student to overcome this deficiency and be able to work independentlyor in advanced courses. The book is intended to be used either as a self-study guide, a textbook for a course in adv anced linear algebra, or as a reference book. It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portionof prelim exams or PhD qualifying exams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assume any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, tosome of the basic ideas and techniques, such as manipulation of small matrices and the solution of small systems of linear equations over the real numbers. More i mportantly, it assumes a seriousness of purpose, considerable motivation,and a modicum of mathematical sophistication on the part of the reader. In the latest edition, new major theorems have been added

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Missing data have long plagued those conducting applied research in the social, behavioral, and health sciences. Good missing data analysis solutions are available, but practical information about implementation of thesesolutions has been lacking. Th e objective of Missing Data: Analysis and Design is to enable investigators who are non-statisticians to implement modern missing data procedures properly in their research, and reap the benefits interms of improved accuracy and statistical power. Missing Data: Analysis and Design contains essential information for both beginners and advanced readers. For researchers with limited missing data analysis experience, this bookoffers an easy-to-read introduction to the theoretical underpinnings of analysis of missing data provides clear, step-by-step instructions for performing state-of-the-art multiple imputation analyses and offers practical advice,based on over 20 years' experience, for avoiding and troubleshooting problems. For more advanced readers, uniqu e discussions of attrition, non-Monte-Carlo techniques for simulations involving missing data, evaluation of the benefitsof auxiliary variables, and highly cost-effective planned missing data designs are provided. The author lays out missing data theory i n a plain English style that is accessible and precise. Most analyses described in the book areconducted using the well-known statistical software packages SAS and SPSS, supplemented by Norm 2.03 and associated Java-based automation utilities. A related w eb site contains free downloads of the supplementary software, as well assample empirical data sets and a variety of practical exercises described in the book to enhance and reinforce the readers learning experience. Missing Data: Analysis and Design and its web site work together to enable beginnersto gain confidence in their ability to conduct missing data analysis, and more advanced readers to expand their skill set.

Note:This proposed text appears to be a good introduction to evolutionary computation for use in applied statistics research. The authors draw from a vast base of knowledge about the current literature in both the design ofevolutionary algorithms and stat istical techniques. Modern statistical research is on the threshold of solving increasingly complex problems in high dimensions, and the generalization of its methodology to parameters whose estimatorsdo not follow mathematically simple distributions is u nderway. Many of these challenges involve optimizing functions for which analytic solutions are infeasible. Evolutionary algorithms represent a powerful and easily understood meansof approximating the optimum value in a variety of settings. The proposed t ext seeks to guide readers through the crucial issues of optimization problems in statistical settings and the implementation of tailored methods (includingboth stand-alone evolutionary algorithms and hybrid crosses of these procedures with standard stati stical algorithms like Metropolis-Hastings) in a variety of applications. This book would serve as an excellent reference work forstatistical researchers at an advanced graduate level or beyond, particularly those with a strong background in computer scie nce

Note:Discrete Mathematics and theoretical computer science are closely linked research areas with strong impacts on applications and various other scientific disciplines. Both fields deeply cross fertilize each other. One of thepersons who particularly co ntributed to building bridges between these and many other areas is Lszl Lovsz, whose outstanding scientific work has defined and shaped many research directions in the past 40 years. A number offriends and colleagues, all top authorities in their fields of expertise gathered at the two conferences in August 2008 in Hungary, celebrating Lovsz' 60th birthday. It was a real fete of combinatorics and computer science. Some ofthese plenary speakers submitted their research or survey papers prior to the confer ences. These are included in the volume Building Bridges. The other speakers were able to finish their contribution only later, these are collectedin the present volume

Title:The Mathematical Works of Leon Battista Alberti [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Leon Battista Alberti (14041472) was a highly prolific polymath of the fifteenth century. Although his contributions to architecture and the visual arts are well known and available in good English editions, as are many ofhis literary and social writ ings, his mathematical works are not well represented. This present volume was planned to fill that gap, with entirely new English translations and critical commentaries making the works easily accessiblefor a wide readership of specialists and non-specia lists alike. Four texts are included here. Although Albertis Commentarii rerum mathematicarum appears to be lost, we have his Ludi matematici . In these games Albertidescribes twenty practical applications of mathematics in an accessible style. The transl ation is accompanied by a new transcript of the recently identified manuscript held in the National Library in Florence upon which it was based.In Elementi di pittura, Alberti provides a catalogue of definitions and geometric constructions, using Euclidea n references but drawing a distinction between theoria of mathematical entities and praxis of painterly applications.Albertis most original mathematical contribution is a late work, De compendis cifris, first discussing the frequency of vowels, consonants , and different groupings in Latin, and then introducing a method of polyalphabeticsubstitution. Even more original is his enciphered code which permutes four numerals in two-, three-, and four-digit groups. De lunularum quadratura rehearses the classical demonstration of squaring a lune by Hippocrates

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This milestone extensive work combines the essentials of history biography, chronology, political and economic background with the observations, theories, principles, laws and equations that constitute the specifics ofscience. The 5800-page Encyclo pedia arises from the conviction that the optimal perspective on science is through the lens of history, setting aside traditional divisions of discipline and specialty, and rising above geopoliticalboundaries. Reaching from 4,200 BCE to the 21st century CE, the Encyclopedia relates (as the author himself puts it) not only who did it and when it was done but also precisely what was done. The author, Ari Ben-Menahem, surveys100 generations of great thinkers, offering 2070 detailed biographies of scientists , engineers, explorers and inventors, who left their mark on the history of science and technology. The span of coverage is all-encompassing:mathematics, philosophy, logic, physical and environmental sciences (including physics, chemistry, astronomy, eart h and space sciences and cosmology), life sciences (biology, medicine, physiology, botany, zoology and biochemistry),associated engineering disciplines, and the social sciences (among them economics, psychology, sociology, anthropology, linguistics and mo re). The six-volume Encyclopedia also includes 380 articles summarizing the time-line of ideas inthe leading fields of science, technology, mathematics and philosophy, plus useful tables, figures and photos, and 20 Science Progress Reports detailing scien tific setbacks. Interspersed throughout are quotations, gathered fromthe wit and wisdom of sages, savants and scholars throughout the ages from antiquity to modern times

Note:How can our societies be stabilized in a crisis? Why can we enjoy and understand Shakespeare? Why are fruitflies uniform? How do omnivorous eating habits aid our survival? What makes the Mona Lisas smile beautiful? How dowomen keep our social structu res intact? Could there possibly be a single answer to all these questions? This book shows that the statement: weak links stabilize complex systems provides the key to understanding each of theseintriguing puzzles, and many others too. The author (recip ient of several distinguished science communication prizes) uses weak (low affinity, low probability) interactions as a thread to introduce a vast variety of networks fromproteins to economics and ecosystems. Many people, from Nobel Laureates to high-scho ol students have helped to make the book understandable to all interested readers.

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the past decade, the study of networks has increased dramatically. Researchers from across the sciencesincluding biology and bioinformatics, computer science, economics, engineering, mathematics, physics, sociology, andstatisticsare more and more involved with the collection and statistical analysis of network-indexed data. As a result, statistical methods and models are being developed in this area at a furious pace, with contributions comingfrom a wide spectrum of disciplines. This book provides an up-to-date treatment of the foundations common to the statistical analysis of network data across the disciplines. The material is organized according to a statisticaltaxonomy, although the presentation entails a conscious balance of concepts versus m athematics. In addition, the examplesincluding extended cases studiesare drawn widely from the literature. This book should be of substantialinterest both to statisticians and to anyone else working in the area of network science. The coverage of topics i n this book is broad, but unfolds in a systematic manner, moving from descriptive (or exploratory) methods, tosampling, to modeling and inference. Specific topics include network mapping, characterization of network structure, network sampling, and the mo deling, inference, and prediction of networks, network processes, and network flows. Thisbook is the first such resource to present material on all of these core topics in one place. Eric Kolaczyk is a professor of statistics, and Director of the Program in Statistics, in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics atBoston University, where he also is an affiliated faculty member in the Center for Biodynamics, the Program in Bioinformatics, and the Division of Systems Engineering. His publications on ne twork-based topics include work ranging fromthe detection of anomalous traffic patterns in computer networks to the prediction of biological function in networks of interacting protein

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Using tools from mathematical kinetic theory and stochastic game theory, this work deals with the modeling of large complex systems in the applied sciences, particularly those comprised of several interacting individuals whosedynamics follow rules de termined by some organized, or even intelligent ability. Traditionally, methods of mathematical kinetic theory have been applied to model the evolution of large systems of interacting classical or quantumparticles. This book, on the other hand, examines t he modeling of living systems as opposed to inert systems. The author develops new mathematical methods and toolshopefully a new mathematicstoward the modeling of livingsystems. Such tools need to be far more complex than those dealing with systems of ine rt matter. The first part of the book deals with deriving general evolution equations that can be customized to particular systems of interest in theapplied sciences. The second part of the book deals with various models and applications. The presentation unfolds using the following common approach in each chapter: * Phenomenological interpretation of the physical system in thecontext of mathematical modeling * Derivation of the mathematical model using methods from mathematical kinetic theory for active particles * Simulations, parameter sensitivity analysis, and critical inspection of the derived modeltowards validation * Overview of presented ideas to improve existing models, with special emphasis on applications Specific topics covered include: * Mode ling of the competition between cells of an aggressive invasive agent and cellsof the immune system * Modeling of vehicular traffic flow * Modeling of swarms and crowd dynamics in complex geometric environments * Methodological aspects related to multisca le modeling of large systems viewed as interconnectedsubsystems Modeling Complex Living Systems is a valuable resource for applied mathematicians, engineers, physicists, biologists, economists

Note:Human rights issues are shaping the modern world. They define the expectations by which nations are judged and affect the policy of governments, corporations, and foundations. They have set the agenda in prosecutions at theInternational Criminal Cour t at the Hague, funding decisions by the International Monetary Fund, and corporate expansion programs by multinationals. Statistics is central to the modern perspective on human rights. It allows researchersto measure the effect of health care policies, the penetration of educational opportunity, and progress towards gender equality. The new wave of entrepreneurial charities demands impact assessments and documentation of milestoneachievement. Non-governmental organizations need statistics to build cases , conduct surveys, and target their efforts. This book describes the statistics that underlie the social science research in human rights. It includes casestudies, methodology, and research papers that discuss the fundamental measurement issues. It is int ended as an introduction to applied human rights research. The editors of the book are Jana Asher, David Banks, and Fritz Scheuren.Jana Asher led the first national human rights survey in Sierra Leone and provided statistical support for surveys in Iraq, Kosovo, East Timor and Peru. She is the former Senior Program Associate in the Science and Human Rights Programat the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

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.

Note:Public interest in the first lunar landing transcended political, economic and social borders the world was briefly united by the courage of the crew, and the wonder of the accomplishment. Prompted by the rivalry of the ColdWar, Apollo 11 and the fi ve missions that subsequently landed on the Moon were arguably the finest feats of exploration in human history. But these were more than exercises in flags and footprints, because the missions involvedthe crews making geological field trips on a low grav ity site while wearing pressure suits, carrying life-support systems on their backs and working against an unforgiving time line. The missions delivered not only samples of moonrock,but also hard-learned lessons for how to work on the surface of another p lanet, and this experience will be crucial to planning the resumption of the human exploration of the Moon and going on to Mars

Note:The book reviews the synergism between various fields of research that are confronted with networks, such as genetic and metabolic networks, social networks, the Internet and ecological systems. In many cases, the interactingnetworks manifest so-call ed emergent properties that are not possessed by any of the individual components. This means that the detailed knowledge of the components is insufficient to describe the whole system. Recent work hasindicated that networks in nature have so-called scale -free characteristics, and the associated dynamic network modelling shows unexpected results such as an amazing robustness against accidental failures. Modelling the signaltransduction networks in bioprocesses as in living cells is a challenging interdisc iplinary research area. It is now realized that the many features of molecular interaction networks within a cell are shared to a large degree by theother complex systems mentioned above, such as the Internet, computer chips and society. Thus knowledge ga ined from the study of complex non-biological systems can be applied to the intricate braided relationships that govern cellularfunctions

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences

Note:Point process statistics is successfully used in fields such as material science, human epidemiology, social sciences, animal epidemiology, biology, and seismology. Its further application depends greatly on good software andinstructive case studies that show the way to successful work. This book satisfies this need by a presentation of the spatstat package and many statistical examples. Researchers, spatial statisticians and scientists from biology,geosciences, materials sciences and other fields wi ll use this book as a helpful guide to the application of point process statistics. No other book presents so many well-founded point process case studies. Adrian Baddeley is Professorof Statistics at the University of Western Australia (Perth, Australia) and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. His main research interests are in stochastic geometry, stereology, spatial statistics, image analysis andstatistical software. Pablo Gregori is senior lecturer of Statistics and Probability at the Depar tment of Mathematics, University Jaume I of Castellon.

Title:An R and S-PLUS Companion to Multivariate Analysis [electronic resource]
Author(s): Brian Sidney Everitt
Date:2005
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Most data sets collected by researchers are multivariate, and in the majority of cases the variables need to be examined simultaneously to get the most informative results. This requires the use of one or other of the manymethods of multivariate anal ysis, and the use of a suitable software package such as S-PLUS or R. In this book the core multivariate methodology is covered along with some basic theory for each method described. The necessary R andS-PLUS code is given for each analysis in the book, with any differences between the two highlighted. A website with all the datasets and code used in the book can be found at http://biostatistics.iop.kcl.ac.uk/publications/everitt/.Graduate students, and advanced undergraduates on applied statistics cours es, especially those in the social sciences, will find this book invaluable in their work, and it will also be useful to researchers outside of statistics whoneed to deal with the complexities of multivariate data in their work. Brian Everitt is Emeritus Professor of Statistics, Kings College, London

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
