Title:Computational Experiment Approach to Advanced Secondary Mathematics Curriculum [electronic resource]
Author(s): Sergei Abramovich
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book promotes the experimental mathematics approach in the context of secondary mathematics curriculum by exploring mathematical models depending on parameters that were typically considered advanced in the pre-digitaleducation era. This approac h, by drawing on the power of computers to perform numerical computations and graphical constructions, stimulates formal learning of mathematics through making sense of a computational experiment. It allowsone (in the spirit of Freudenthal) to bridge seri ous mathematical content and contemporary teaching practice. In other words, the notion of teaching experiment can be extended to include a true mathematical experiment. When usedappropriately, the approach creates conditions for collateral learning (in t he spirit of Dewey) to occur including the development of skills important for engineering applications of mathematics. In the context of a mathematics teachereducation program, this book addresses a call for the preparation of teachers capable of utilizi ng modern technology tools for the modeling-based teaching of mathematics with a focus on methods conducive to the improvement of the wholeSTEM education at the secondary level. By the same token, using the books pedagogy and its mathematical content in a pre-college classroom can assist teachers in introducing students to the ideas that develop the foundation ofengineering profession

Title:Introduzione al Laboratorio di Fisica [electronic resource] : Misure e Teoria delle Incertezze
Author(s): Giuseppe Ciullo
Date:2014
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Frutto dell'esperienza decennale come supporto per la didattica di laboratori di fisica sia a livello di corsi triennali che di corsi di laurea magistrale, il libro si concretizzato nella responsabilit di tali corsi dilaboratorio per fornire un oper a di utilizzo dei vari strumenti, che un approccio sperimentale alla fisica richiede. Si parte dalla descrizione delle problematiche delle incertezze in modo operativo e si introducono i concettifondamentali per l'analisi dei dati e la misura. Invece di u na serie dispersiva di testi, con approcci, convenzioni e simbolismi differenti, poco fruibili per l'applicazione diretta ad un laboratorio dei primi anni, il libro forniscele indicazioni utili per affrontare lo studio dei fenomeni fisici in modo immediat o, fornendo anche indicazioni rigorose e giustificazioni teoriche. Lo stimolo teorico-pratico, che uno sperimentale-scienziato deve percepire, non esuladal comprendere problematiche di maggiore approfondimento. L'opera rende fruibili concetti e strumenti, con giustificazioni intuitive e ove possibile rigorose, comunque forniti in un quadro scientificamente consolidato ed utilizzabilipraticamente, come richiesto proprio ad un approccio educativo e formativo utile per lo studio della disciplina scientifica

Hugo Perez Rojas
Anca Tureanu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Basic Concepts in Physics: From the Cosmos to Quarks is the outcome of the authors' long and varied teaching experience in different countries and for different audiences, and gives an accessible and eminently readableintroduction to all the main ide as of modern physics. The books fresh approach, using a novel combination of historical and conceptual viewpoints, makes it ideal complementary reading to more standard textbooks. The first fivechapters are devoted to classical physics, from planetary mot ion to special relativity, always keeping in mind its relevance to questions of contemporary interest. The next six chapters deal mainly with newer developments in physics,from quantum theory and general relativity to grand unified theories, and the book concludes by discussing the role of physics in living systems. A basic grounding in mathematics is required of the reader, but technicalities areavoided as far as possible thus complex calculations are omitted so long as the essential ideas remain clear. The book is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students in physics and will also be appreciated by many professionalphysicists. It will likewise beof interest to students, researchers and teachers of other natural sciences, as well as to engineers, h igh-school teachers and the curious general reader, who will come to understand what physics isabout and how it describes the different phenomena of Nature. Not only will readers of this book learn much about physics, they will also learn to love it.

Title:Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam [electronic resource] : Research, Teaching, Life
Author(s): Alexander Pechenkin
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This biography of the famous Soviet physicist Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam (1889-1944), who became a Professor at Moscow State University in 1925, describes his contributions to both physics and technology, as well as discussingthe scientific communi ty which formed around him, usually called the Mandelstam school. Mandelstams life story is thereby placed in its proper cultural context. The following more general issues are taken under consideration: theimpact of German scientific culture on Russian s cience the problems and fates of Russian intellectuals during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years the formation of the Soviet Academy of Sciences and transformation of thesystem of higher education in the USSR during the 1920's and 1930's.The a uthor shows that Mandelstams fundamental writings and his lectures notes allow to reconstruct his philosophy of science and his approach to the social andethical functions of science and science education. That reconstruction is enhanced through extensive use of hitherto unpublished archival material as well as the transcripts of personal interviews conducted by the author

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:This is the first comprehensive International Handbook on the History of Mathematics Education, covering a wide spectrum of epochs and civilizations, countries and cultures. Until now, much of the research into the rich and variedhistory of mathemati cs education has remained inaccessible to the vast majority of scholars, not least because it has been written in the language, and for readers, of an individual country. And yet a historical overview, howeverbrief, has become an indispensable element of nearly every dissertation and scholarly article. This handbook provides, for the first time, a comprehensive and systematic aid for researchers around the world in finding the informationthey need about historical developments in mathematics education, no t only in their own countries, but globally as well. Although written primarily for mathematics educators, this handbook will also be of interest to researchers of thehistory of education in general, as well as specialists in cultural and even social hist ory

Title:Statistical Analysis of Financial Data in R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ren Carmona
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Although there are many books on mathematical finance, few deal with the statistical aspects of modern data analysis as applied to financial problems. This book fills this gap by addressing some of the most challenging issuesfacing any financial engi neer. It shows how sophisticated mathematics and modern statistical techniques can be used in concrete financial problems. Concerns of risk management are addressed by the control of extreme values, the fittingof distributions with heavy tails, the comput ation of values at risk (VaR), and other measures of risk. Data description techniques such as principal component analysis (PCA), smoothing, and regression are applied to the constructionof yield and forward curve. Nonparametric estimation and nonlinear filtering are used for option pricing and earnings prediction. The book is intended for undergraduate students majoring in financial engineering, or graduate studentsin a Master in finance or MBA program. Because it was designed as a teaching vehicle, it is sprinkled with practical examples using market data, and each chapter ends with exercises. Practical examples are solved in the computingenvironment of R. They illustrate problems occurring in the commodity and energy markets, the fixed income markets as well as the equity markets, and even some new emerging markets like the weather markets. The book can helpquantitative analysts by guiding them through the details of statistical model estimation and implementation. It will also be of interest to resea rchers wishing to manipulate financial data, implement abstract concepts, and testmathematical theories, especially by addressing practical issues that are often neglected in the presentation of the theory

Note:Methods for making inferences from data about one or more probabilities and proportions are a fundamental part of a statisticians toolbox and statistics courses. Unfortunately many of the quick, approximate methods currentlytaught have recently been found to be inappropriate. This monograph gives an up-to-date review of recent research on the topic and presents both exact methods and helpful approximations. Detailed theory is also presented for thedifferent distributions involved, and can be used in a classroom setting. It will be useful for those teaching statistics at university level and for those involved in statistical consulting

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Complex system theory is rapidly developing and gaining importance, providing tools and concepts central to our modern understanding of emergent phenomena. This primer offers an introduction to this area together with detailedcoverage of the mathemat ics involved. All calculations are presented step by step and are straightforward to follow. This new third edition comes with new material, figures and exercises. Network theory, dynamical systems andinformation theory, the core of modern complex system sciences, are developed in the first three chapters, covering basic concepts and phenomena like small-world networks, bifurcation theory and information entropy. Further chaptersuse a modular approach to address the most important concepts in complex syst em sciences, with the emergence and self-organization playing a central role. Prominent examples are self-organized criticality in adaptive systems, life atthe edge of chaos, hypercycles and coevolutionary avalanches, synchronization phenomena, absorbing phase transitions and the cognitive system approach to the brain. Technical course prerequisites are the standard mathematical tools foran advanced undergraduate course in the natural sciences or engineering. Each chapter comes with exercises and suggesti ons for further reading - solutions to the exercises are provided in the last chapter. From the reviews of previouseditions: This is a very interesting introductory book written for a broad audience of graduate students in natural sciences and engineering . It can be equally well used both for teaching and self-education. Very well structured andevery topic is illustrated by simple and motivating examples. This is a true guidebook to the world of complex nonlinear phenomena. (Ilya Pavlyukevich, Zentralblat t MATH, Vol. 1146, 2008) Claudius Gros's Complex and AdaptiveDynamical Systems: A Primer is a welcome addition to the literature. . A particular strength of the book is its emphasis on analytical techn

Note:Advances in the synthesis of new materials with often complex, nano-scaled structures require increasingly sophisticated experimental techniques that can probe the electronic states, the atomic magnetic moments and the magneticmicrostructures respons ible for the properties of these materials. At the same time, progress in synchrotron radiation techniques has ensured that these light sources remain a key tool of investigation, e.g. synchrotron radiationsources of the third generation are able to suppo rt magnetic imaging on a sub-micrometer scale. With the Sixth Mittelwihr School on Magnetism and Synchrotron Radiation the tradition of teaching the state-of-the-art on modern researchdevelopments continues and is expressed through the present set of exte nsive lectures provided in this volume. While primarily aimed at postgraduate students and newcomers to the field, this volume will also benefit researchers andlecturers actively working in the field

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:To British television viewers, the name Patrick Moore has been synonymous with Astronomy and Space Travel since he first appeared on The Sky at Night in 1957. To amateur astronomers he has been a source of inspiration, joy,humour and even an eccentri c role model since that time. Most people know that his 55 years of presenting The Sky at Night is a world record, but what was he really like in person? What did he do away from the TV cameras, in hisobservatory, and within the British Astronomical Assoc iation, the organisation that inspired him as a youngster? Also, precisely what did he do during the War Years, a subject that has always been shrouded in mystery? Martin Mobberley,a friend of Patrick Moores for 30 years, and a former President of the Bri tish Astronomical Association, has spent ten years exhaustively researching Patricks real life away from the TV cameras. His childhood, RAF service,tireless voluntary work for astronomy and charity and his endless book writing are all examined in detail. His astronomical observations are also examined in unprecedented detail, along with the battles he fought along the way and hishatred of bureaucracy and political correctness. No fan of Sir Patrick Moore can possibly live without this work on their booksh elf!

Note:This book is based on over a dozen years teaching a Bayesian Statistics course. The material presented here has been used by students of different levels and disciplines, including advanced undergraduates studying Mathematics andStatistics and studen ts in graduate programs in Statistics, Biostatistics, Engineering, Economics, Marketing, Pharmacy, and Psychology. The goal of the book is to impart the basics of designing and carrying out Bayesian analyses, andinterpreting and communicating the results. In addition, readers will learn to use the predominant software for Bayesian model-fitting, R and OpenBUGS. The practical approach this book takes will help students of all levels to buildunderstanding of the concepts and procedures required to answer re al questions by performing Bayesian analysis of real data. Topics covered include comparing and contrasting Bayesian and classical methods, specifying hierarchicalmodels, and assessing Markov chain Monte Carlo output. Mary Kathryn(Kate) Cowles taught Suzu ki piano for many years before going to graduate school in Biostatistics. Her research areas are Bayesian and computational statistics,with application to environmental science. She is on the faculty of Statistics at The University of Iowa

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This Companion Textbook supplements the ActivEpi CD-ROM, sold separately. The ActivEpi CD-ROM provides a multimedia presentation of concepts, commonly taught in an introductory epidemiology course. ActivEpi mixes a full array ofmedia to motivate, exp lain, visualize and apply epidemiological concepts. Virtually all of the material on the ActivEpi CD-ROM is included in the Companion Textbook. Because individuals differ in their learning skills, the ActivEpiCD-ROM and the ActivEpi Companion Textbook off er readers different but related options on how to learn epidemiology. The Textbook can be used as a hardcopy reference of the textual materials contained on the CD-ROM, as a resource forthe practice exercises, as a general reference, or even a self-conta ined textbook. The ActivEpi CD-ROM uses: Video to instill real-world motivation for learning and applying epidemiological concepts Narrated Expositions to teach theconcepts using high-quality audio synchronized with text, pictures, and animations Quizzes to provide self-evaluation of basic terms and concepts Data Desk to provide practice applying the methods learned to real data NavigationalTools such as a dynamic table of contents, index and glossary, to allow easy-to-use methods for working through cont ent Web Links to augment the material on the CD with complementary content authored by others. ActivEpi includes 15lessons and over 50 hours of content via more than 250 launchable activities and homework exercises. It can be used in a variety of teaching formats: distance learning, self-paced learning, on-campus courses, and short courses.

Title:Laboratory Experiments in Physics for Modern Astronomy [electronic resource] : With Comprehensive Development of the Physical Principles
Author(s): Leslie Golden
Date:2013
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:This book presents experiments which will teach physics relevant to astronomy. The astronomer, as instructor, frequently faces this need when his college or university has no astronomy department and any astronomy course is taughtin the physics depar tment. The physicist, as instructor, will find this intellectually appealing when faced with teaching an introductory astronomy course. From these experiments, the student will acquire important analytical tools,learn physics appropriate to astronomy, and experience instrument calibration and the direct gathering and analysis of data. Experiments that can be performed in one laboratory session as well as semester-long observation projects areincluded. This textbook is aimed at undergraduate astronomy stud ents

Title:The Craft of Scientific Presentations [electronic resource] Critical Steps to Succeed and Critical Errors to Avoid
Author(s): Michael Alley
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
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:The Craft of Scientific Presentations, 2nd edition aims to strengthen you as a presenter of science and engineering. The book does so by identifying what makes excellent presenters such as Brian Cox, Jane Goodall, Richard Feynman,and Jill Bolte Taylo r so strong. In addition, the book explains what causes so many scientific presentations to flounder. One of the most valuable contributions of this text is that it teaches the assertion-evidence approach toscientific presentations. Instead of building pr esentations, as most engineers and scientists do, on the weak foundation of topic phrases and bulleted lists, this assertion-evidence approach calls for building presentations on succinctmessage assertions supported by visual evidence. Unlike the commonly followed topic-subtopic approach that PowerPoint leads presenters to use, the assertion-evidence approach is solidly grounded in research. By showing the differencesbetween strong and weak presentations, by identifying the errors that scientific presente rs typically make, and by teaching a much more powerful approach for scientific presentations than what is commonly practiced, this book placesyou in a position to elevate your presentations to a high level. In essence, this book aims to have you not just succeed in your scientific presentations, but excel. About the Author Michael Alley has taught workshops on presentationsto engineers and scientists on five continents, and has recently been invited to speak at the European Space Organization, Harvard Me dical School, MIT, Sandia National Labs, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Simula Research Laboratory,and United Technologies. An Associate Professor of engineering communication at Pennsylvania State University, Alley is a leading researcher on the effectiv eness of different designs for presentation slides

Title:Bayesian and Frequentist Regression Methods [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jon Wakefield
Date:2013
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:Bayesian and Frequentist Regression Methods provides a modern account of both Bayesian and frequentist methods of regression analysis. Many texts cover one or the other of the approaches, but this is the most comprehensivecombination of Bayesian and frequentist methods that exists in one place. The two philosophical approaches to regression methodology are featured here as complementary techniques, with theory and data analysis providing supplementarycomponents of the discussion. In particular, metho ds are illustrated using a variety of data sets. The majority of the data sets are drawn from biostatistics but the techniques are generalizable to a wide range of other disciplines.While the philosophy behind each approach is discussed, the book is not i deological in nature and an emphasis is placed on practical application. It is shown that, in many situations, careful application of the respective approachescan lead to broadly similar conclusions. To use this text, the reader requires a basic understan ding of calculus and linear algebra, and introductory courses in probability and statistical theory. The book is based on the author'sexperience teaching a graduate sequence in regression methods. The book website contains all of the code to reproduce all of the analyses and figures contained in the book

Note:The polycrystalline and nanocrystalline states play an increasingly important role in exploiting the properties of materials, encompassing applications as diverse as pharmaceuticals, catalysts, solar cells and energy storage. Aknowledge of the three- dimensional atomic and molecular structure of materials is essential for understanding and controlling their properties, yet traditional single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods lose their power when onlypolycrystalline and nanocrystalline samples are ava ilable. It is here that powder diffraction and single-crystal electron diffraction techniques take over, substantially extending the range of applicability of the crystallographicprinciples of structure determination. This volume, a collection of teaching contributions presented at the Crystallographic Course in Erice in 2011, clearly describes the fundamentals and the state-of-the-art of powder diffractionand electron diffraction methods in materials characterisation, encompassing a diverse range of disc iplines and materials stretching from archeometry to zeolites. As such, it is a comprehensive and valuable resource for thosewishing to gain an understanding of the broad applicability of these two rapidly developing fields
