Title:Emerging Space Powers [electronic resource] : The New Space Programs of Asia, the Middle East, and South America
Author(s): Brian Harvey
Henk H. F Smid
Tho Pirard
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Praxis
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work introduces the important emerging space powers of the world. Brian Harvey describes the origins of the Japanese space program, from rocket designs based on WW II German U-boats to tiny solid fuel 'pencil' rockets, whichled to the launch of the first Japanese satellite in 1970. The next two chapters relate how Japan expanded its space program, developing small satellites into astronomical observatories and sending missions to the Moon, Mars, cometHalley, and asteroids. Chapter 4 describes ho w India's Vikram Sarabhai developed a sounding rocket program in the 1960s. The following chapter describes the expansion of the Indian space program. Chapter 6 relates how the Indian spaceprogram is looking ahead to the success of the moon probe Chandray an, due to launch in 2008, and its first manned launching in 2014. Chapters 7, 8, and 9 demonstrate how, in Iran, communications and remote sensing drive spacetechnology. Chapter 10 outlines Brazil's road to space, begun in the mid-1960's with the launch of the Sonda sounding rockets. The following two chapters describe Brazil's satellites and space launch systems and plans for the future.Chapters 13 and 14 study Israel's space industry. The next chapters look at the burgeoning space programs of North and South Korea. The book ends by contrasting and comparing all the space programs and speculating how they may evolvein the future. An appendix lists all launches and launch attempts to date of the emerging space powers

Title:Reactive Search and Intelligent Optimization [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Battiti
Mauro Brunato
Franco Mascia
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Reactive Search integrates sub-symbolic machine learning techniques into search heuristics for solving complex optimization problems. By automatically adjusting the working parameters, a reactive search self-tunes and adapts,effectively learning by d oing until a solution is found. Intelligent Optimization, a superset of Reactive Search, concerns online and off-line schemes based on the use of memory, adaptation, incremental development of models,experimental algorithms applied to optimization, intell igent tuning and design of heuristics. Reactive Search and Intelligent Optimization is an excellent introduction to the main principles of reactive search, as well as an attempt todevelop some fresh intuition for the approaches. The book looks at differen t optimization possibilities with an emphasis on opportunities for learning and self-tuning strategies. While focusing more on methods than on problems,problems are introduced wherever they help make the discussion more concrete, or when a specific proble m has been widely studied by reactive search and intelligent optimization heuristics. Individual chapters cover reacting on theneighborhood reacting on the annealing schedule reactive prohibitions model-based search reacting on the objective function rela tionships between reactive search and reinforcement learning and much more. Each chapter isstructured to show basic issues and algorithms the parameters critical for the success of the different methods discussed and opportunities and schemes for the auto mated tuning of these parameters. Anyone working in decision makingin business, engineering, economics or science will find a wealth of information here

Title:Modern Multivariate Statistical Techniques [electronic resource] : Regression, Classification, and Manifold Learning
Author(s): Alan J Izenman
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Remarkable advances in computation and data storage and the ready availability of huge data sets have been the keys to the growth of the new disciplines of data mining and machine learning, while the enormous success of the HumanGenome Project has op ened up the field of bioinformatics. These exciting developments, which led to the introduction of many innovative statistical tools for high-dimensional data analysis, are described here in detail. The authortakes a broad perspective for the first time i n a book on multivariate analysis, nonlinear methods are discussed in detail as well as linear methods. Techniques covered range from traditional multivariate methods, such as multipleregression, principal components, canonical variates, linear discrimina nt analysis, factor analysis, clustering, multidimensional scaling, and correspondence analysis, to the newer methods of density estimation, projection pursuit,neural networks, multivariate reduced-rank regression, nonlinear manifold learning, bagging, bo osting, random forests, independent component analysis, support vector machines, and classification and regression trees. Another uniquefeature of this book is the discussion of database management systems. This book is appropriate for advanced undergradu ate students, graduate students, and researchers in statistics, computer science, artificial intelligence,psychology, cognitive sciences, business, medicine, bioinformatics, and engineering. Familiarity with multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and pro bability and statistics is required. The book presents a carefully-integrated mixtureof theory and applications, and of classical and modern multivariate statistical techniques, including Bayesian methods. There are over 60 interesting data sets used as e xamples in the book, over 200 exercises, and many colorillustrations and photographs. Alan J. Izenman is Professor of Statistics and Director of the Center for Statistical and Information Science at Te
