Title:Searching for the Long-Duration Gamma-Ray Burst Progenitor [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert Allan Mesler III
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Nominated as an outstanding thesis by the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of New Mexico, this thesis seeks to identify the gamma-ray burst (GRB) progenitor. GRBs are extragalactic explosions that brieflyoutshine entire galaxies, but the mechanism that can release that much energy over a < 100 second burst is still a mystery. The leading candidate for the GRB progenitor is currently a massive star which collapses to form a blackholeaccretion disk system that powers the GRB. GRB a fterglows, however, do not always show the expected behavior of a relativistic blast wave interacting with the stellar wind that such a progenitor should have produced before itscollapse. In this book, the author uses the Zeus-MP astrophysical hydrodynami cs code to model the environment around a stellar progenitor prior to the burst. He then develops a new semi-analytic MHD and emission model to producelight curves for GRBs encountering these realistic density profiles. The work ultimately shows that the circumburst medium surrounding a GRB at the time of the explosion is much more complex than a pure wind, and that observedafterglows are entirely consistent with a large subset of proposed stellar progenitors

Title:Euclid Vindicated from Every Blemish [electronic resource] : Edited and Annotated by Vincenzo De Risi. Translated by G.B. Halsted and L. Allegri
Author(s): Gerolamo Saccheri
Vincenzo Risi
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Birkhuser
Size:1 online resource
Note:This first complete English language edition of Euclides vindicatus presents a corrected and revised edition of the classical English translation of Saccheri's text by G.B. Halsted. It is complemented with a historicalintroduction on the geometrical environment of the time and a detailed commentary that helps to understand the aims and subtleties of the work. Euclides vindicatus, written by the Jesuit mathematician Gerolamo Saccheri, was publishedin Milan in 1733. In it, Saccheri attempted to reform elementary geometry in two important directions: a demonstration of the famous Parallel Postulate, and the theory of proportions. Both topics were of pivotal importance in themathematics of the time. In particular, the Parallel Postulate had escaped demon stration since the first attempts at it in the Classical Age, and several books on the topic were published in the Early Modern Age. At the same time, thetheory of proportion was the most important mathematical tool of the Galilean School in its pursuit o f the mathematization of nature. Saccheri's attempt to prove the Parallel Postulate is today considered the most importantbreakthrough in geometry in the 18th century, as he was able to develop for hundreds of pages and dozens of theorems a system in geom etry that denied the truth of the postulate (in the attempt to find a contradiction). This can beregarded as the first system of non-Euclidean geometry. Its later developments by Lambert, Bolyai, Lobachevsky and Gauss eventually opened the way to contempo rary geometry. Occupying a unique position in the literature of mathematicalhistory, Euclid Vindicated from Every Blemish will be of high interest to historians of mathematics as well as historians of philosophy interested in the development of non-Euclid ean geometries

Title:Dispersion Stability, Microstructure and Phase Transition of Anisotropic Nanodiscs [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ravi Kumar Pujala
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This thesis explores the dispersion stability, microstructure and phase transitions involved in the nanoclay system.It describes the recently discovered formation of colloidal gels via two routes: the first is through phaseseparation and second is by equilibrium gelation and includes the first reported experimental observation of a system with high aspect ratio nanodiscs. The phase behavior of anisotropic nanodiscs of different aspect ratio in theirindividual and mixed states in aqueous and hydrophob ic mediais investigated. Distinct phase separation, equilibrium fluid and equilibrium gel phasesare observed in nanoclay dispersions with extensive aging.The work thenexploressolution behavior, gelation kinetics, aging dynamics and temperature-induced ord ering in the individual and mixed states of these discotic colloids. Anisotropic ordering dynamics induced by a water-air interface, waiting time andtemperature in these dispersions were studied in great detail along with aggregation behavior of nanoplate lets in hydrophobic environment of alcohol solutions

Title:The Stars of Galileo Galilei and the Universal Knowledge of Athanasius Kircher [electronic resource]
Author(s): Roberto Buonanno
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:In this fascinating book, the author traces the careers, ideas, discoveries, and inventions of two renowned scientists, Athanasius Kircher and Galileo Galilei, one a Jesuit, the other a sincere man of faith whose relations withthe Jesuits deteriorate d badly. The Author documents Kirchers often intuitive work in many areas, including translating the hieroglyphs, developing sundials, and inventing the magic lantern, and explains how Kircher was a forerunnerof Darwin in suggesting that animal species ev olve. Galileos work on scales, telescopes, and sun spots is mapped and discussed, and care is taken to place his discoveries within their cultural environment. While Galileo is withoutdoubt the winner in the comparison with Kircher, the latter achieved ex traordinary insights by unconventional means. For all Galileos fine work, the author believes that scientists do need to regain the power of dreaming,vindicating Kirchners view

Title:Physics of Societal Issues [electronic resource] : Calculations on National Security, Environment, and Energy
Author(s): David Hafemeister
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides the reader with essential tools needed to analyze complex societal issues and demonstrates the transition from physics to modern-day laws and treaties. This second edition features new equation-orientedmaterial and extensive data s ets drawing upon current information from experts in their fields. Problems to challenge the reader and extend discussion are presented on three timely issues: National Security:Weapons, Offense, Defense, Verification, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism Environment: Air/Water, Nuclear, Climate Change, EM Fields/Epidemiology Energy: Current Energy Situation, Buildings, SolarBuildings, Renewable Energy, Enhanced End-Use Efficiency, Transportation, Economics Praise for the first edition: This insight is n eeded in Congress and the Executive Branch. Hafemeister, a former Congressional fellow with wideWashington experience, has written a book for physicists, chemists and engineers who want to learn science and policy on weapons, energy, and the environment. Scientists who want to make a difference will want this book. RichardScribner, first Director, Congressional Science and Engineering Fellow Program, AAAS Hafemeister shows how much one can understand about nuclear weapons and missile issues through simpl e back-of-the-envelope calculations. He alsoprovides compact explanations of the partially successful attempts that have been made over the past 60 years to control these weapons of mass destruction. Hopefully, Physics of Societal Issues will help interes t a new generation ofphysicists in continuing this work. Frank von Hippel, Professor, Princeton, former Assistant Director, National Security, White House, OSTP Energy policy must be quantitative. People who don't calculate economic tradeoffs oftenchampi on simplistic hardware. The solution is more... nuclear power, or electric cars, or photovoltaics, etc. Some simple physics will s

Title:XML and Web Technologies for Data Sciences with R [electronic resource]
Author(s): Deborah Nolan
Duncan Temple Lang
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Web technologies are increasingly relevant to scientists working with data, for both accessing data and creating rich dynamic and interactive displays. The XML and JSON data formats are widely used in Web services, regular Webpages and JavaScript cod e, and visualization formats such as SVG and KML for Google Earth and Google Maps. In addition, scientists use HTTP and other network protocols to scrape data from Web pages, access REST and SOAP Web Services,and interact with NoSQL databases and text sea rch applications. This book provides a practical hands-on introduction to these technologies, including high-level functions the authors have developed for data scientists. It describesstrategies and approaches for extracting data from HTML, XML, and JSON formats and how to programmatically access data from the Web. Along with these general skills, the authors illustrate several applications that are relevant todata scientists, such as reading and writing spreadsheet documents both locally and via GoogleD ocs, creating interactive and dynamic visualizations, displaying spatial-temporal displays with Google Earth, and generating code fromdescriptions of data structures to read and write data. These topics demonstrate the rich possibilities and opportunities to do new things with these modern technologies. The book contains many examples and case-studies thatreaders can use directly and adapt to their own work. The authors have focused on the integration of these technologies with the R statistical computing environment. However, the ideas and skills presented here are more general,and statisticians who use other computing environments will also find them relevant to their work. Deborah Nolan is Professor of Statistics at University of California, Berkeley. Duncan Temple Lang is Associate Professor of Statisticsat University of California, Davis and has been a member of both the S and R development teams

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the variousengineering and science dis ciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operationalvehicles that are closely interrelated to discipl ines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earthorbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroi ds have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of theincreased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material e xperiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA,HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain e ither poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work andtackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contributionto doing so

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work representsone of the first comprehensive attempts to seamlessly integrate two highly active interdisciplinary domains in soft matter science microfluidics and liquid crystals (LCs). Motivated by the lack offundamental experiments, Dr. Seng upta initiated systematic investigation of LC flows at micro scales,gaining new insights that are also suggestive ofnovel applications. By tailoring the surface anchoring of the LC molecules and thechannel dimensions, different topological constraintswere controllably introduced within the microfluidic devices. These topological constraintswere further manipulated using a flow field, paving the way for TopologicalMicrofluidics. Harnessing topologyon a microfluidic platform, as described in this thesis,ope ns up capabilities beyond the conventional viscous-dominated microfluidics, promising potential applications in targeted delivery andsorting systems, self-assembled motifs, and novel metamaterial fabrications

Title:Fluctuations in Markov Processes [electronic resource] : Time Symmetry and Martingale Approximation

Stefano Olla
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Diffusive phenomena in statistical mechanics and in other fields arise from markovian modeling and their study requires sophisticated mathematical tools. In infinite dimensional situations, time symmetry properties can beexploited in order to make ma rtingale approximations, along the lines of the seminal work of Kipnis and Varadhan. The present volume contains the most advanced theories on the martingale approach to central limit theorems. Using thetime symmetry properties of the Markov processes, th e book develops the techniques that allow us to deal with infinite dimensional models that appear in statistical mechanics and engineering (interacting particle systems,homogenization in random environments, and diffusion in turbulent flows, to mention ju st a few applications). The first part contains a detailed exposition of the method, and can be used as a text for graduate courses. The secondconcerns application to exclusion processes, in which the duality methods are fully exploited. The third part is about the homogenization of diffusions in random fields, including passive tracers in turbulent flows (including thesuperdiffusive behavior). There are no other books in the mathematical literature that deal with this kind of approach to the problem of the central limit theorem. Hence, this volume meets the demand for a monograph on this powerfulapproach, now widely used in many areas of probability and mathematical physics. The book also covers the connections with and application to hydrodynamic limit s and homogenization theory, so besides probability researchers it willalso be of interest to mathematical physicists and analysts

Title:The Synthesis of the Elements [electronic resource] The Astrophysical Quest for Nucleosynthesis and What It Can Tell Us About the Universe
Author(s): Giora Shaviv
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book describes the origins and evolution of the chemical elements we and the cosmos are made of. The story starts with the discovery of the common elements on Earth and their subsequent discovery in space. How do we learnthe composition of the d istant stars? How did progress in quantum theory, nuclear physics, spectroscopy, stellar structure and evolution, together with observations of stars, converge to provide an incredibly detailed picture of theuniverse? How does research in the micro-world explain the macro-world? How does progress in one affect the other, or lack of knowledge in one inhibit progress in the other? In short, Shaviv describes how we discovered the variouspieces of the jigsaw that form our present picture of the universe and h ow we sometimes put these in the wrong place before finding in the right one. En route we meet some fascinating personalities and learn about heatedcontroversies. Shaviv shows how science lurched from one dogma to the next, time and again shattering much of what had been considered solid knowledge, until eventually a stable understanding arose. Beginning with generally acceptedscience, the book ends in todays terra incognita of nuclear physics, astrophysics and cosmology. A monumental work that will fasci nate scientists, philosophers, historians and lay readers alike

Title:Mathematics and Modern Art [electronic resource] : Proceedings of the First ESMA Conference, held in Paris, July 19-22, 2010

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The link between mathematics and art remains as strong today as it was in the earliest instances of decorative and ritual art. Arts, architecture, music and painting have for a long time been sources of new developments inmathematics, and vice versa. Many great painters have seen no contradiction between artistic and mathematical endeavors, contributing to the progress of both, using mathematical principles to guide their visual creativity, enrichingtheir visual environment with the new objects creat ed by the mathematical science. Owing to the recent development of the so nice techniques for visualization, while mathematicians can better explore these new mathematical objects,artists can use them to emphasize their intrinsic beauty, and create quite new sceneries. This volume, the content of the first conference of the European Society for Mathematics and the Arts (ESMA), held in Paris in 2010, gives anoverview on some significant and beautiful recent works where maths and art, including architecture and music, are interwoven. The book includes a wealth of mathematical illustrations from several basic mathematical fields includingclassical geometry, topology, differential geometry, dynamical systems. Here, artists and mathematicians alike elucidate t he thought processes and the tools used to create their work

Title:Magnetothermal Properties near Quantum Criticality in the Itinerant Metamagnet Sr3Ru2O7 [electronic resource]

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The compound Sr3Ru2O7 of the strontium ruthenate family has been intensely studied because experimental evidence suggests that quantum fluctuations dominate the magnetic phase diagram in the vicinity of a novel low-temperaturephase. In order to under stand the interplay between the quantum critical fluctuations and the phase formation, comprehensive thermodynamic information is essential. This thesis reports the results of both specific-heat andmagnetocaloric experiments carried out with a bespoke exp erimental apparatus whose design particularly addresses the demanding constraints of the low-temperature, high-magnetic-field environment. The experimental data give evidence forunusual thermodynamic properties of the novel phase and its bounding phase tr ansitions. Furthermore they show that the phase formation takes place against a background of strongly peaking entropy, suggesting that quantum criticalityplays a key role in the physics of this system

Note:During the last three decades geosciences and geo-engineering were influenced by two essential scenarios: First, the technological progress has changed completely the observational and measurement techniques. Modern high speedcomputers and satellite based techniques are entering more and more all geodisciplines. Second, there is a growing public concern about the future of our planet, its climate, its environment, and about an expected shortage of naturalresources. Obviously, both aspects, viz. effic ient strategies of protection against threats of a changing Earth and the exceptional situation of getting terrestrial, airborne as well as spaceborne data of better and better qualityexplain the strong need of new mathematical structures, tools, and meth ods. Mathematics concerned with geoscientific problems, i.e., Geomathematics, is becoming increasingly important. The Handbook Geomathematics as a centralreference work in this area comprises the following scientific fields: (I) observational and measurem ent key technologies (II) modelling of the system Earth (geosphere, cryosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, biosphere) (III) analytic,algebraic, and operator-theoretic methods (IV) statistical and stochastic methods (V) computational and numerical analysis m ethods (VI) historical background and future perspectives

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume contains the proceedings of the Conference Protostellar Jets in Context held by the JETSET Marie Curie Research Training Network in July 2008. This meeting not only served to showcase some of the network's achievementsbut was also a platf orm to hear from, discuss and debate the recent findings of world-class astrophysicists in the field of protostellar jet research. Jets from young stars are of course not an isolated astrophysical phenomenon. It isknown that objects as diverse as young br own dwarfs, planetary nebulae, symbiotic stars, micro-quasars, AGN, and gamma-ray bursters produce jets. Thus in a series of talks, protostellar jets were put in context by comparing them withtheir often much larger brethren and also by considering the ub iquitous accretion disks that seem to be necessary for their formation. With this spectrum of contributions on observations and the theory of astrophysical jets andaccretion disks, this book serves as a comprehensive reference work for researchers and stu dents alike

Title:Viability Theory [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jean-Pierre Aubin
Date:2009
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This work examines viability theory and its applications to control theory and differential games. The emphasis is on the construction of feedbacks and dynamical systems by myopic optimization methods. Systems of first-orderpartial differential inclu sions, whose solutions are feedbacks, are constructed and investigated. Basic results are then extended to the case of fuzzy control problems, distributed control problems, and control systems with delays andmemory. Aimed at graduate students and research mathematicians, both pure and applied, this book offers specialists in control and nonlinear systems tools to take into account general state constraints. Viability theory also allowsresearchers in other disciplinesartificial intelligence, economics, gam e theory, theoretical biology, population genetics, cognitive sciencesto go beyond deterministic models by studying them in a dynamical or evolutionaryperspective in an uncertain environment. The book is a compendium of the state of knowledge about viabil ity...Mathematically, the book should be accessible to anyone who has had basic graduate courses in modern analysis and functionalanalysisThe concepts are defined and many proofs of the requisite results are reproduced here, making the present book essent ially self-contained. Bulletin of the AMS Because of the wide scope, the book is an ideal reference forpeople encountering problems related to viability theory in their researchIt gives a very thorough mathematical presentation.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Acoustics and the Performance of Music connects scientific understandings of acoustics with practical applications to musical performance. Of central importance are the tonal characteristics of musical instruments and the singingvoice including detai led representations of directional characteristics. Furthermore, room acoustical concerns related to concert halls and opera houses are considered. Based on this, suggestions are made for musical performance.Included are seating arrangements within the or chestra and adaptations of performance techniques to the performance environment. In the presentation we dispense with complicated mathematical connections and deliberately aim forconceptual explanations accessible to musicians, particularly for conductor s. The graphical representations of the directional dependence of sound radiation by musical instruments and the singing voice are unique. Since the firstedition was published in 1978, this book has been completely revised and rewritten to include current research. This translation corresponds to the latest (fifth) German edition (2004), which has become a standard reference work foraudio engineers and scientists. Acoustics and the Performance of Music addresses issues that are of interest to acousticians , orchestra performers and conductors, audio engineers, architects. Researchers and students of musicalacoustics will also find this text valuable

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Biology and Mechanics of Blood Flows presents the basic knowledge and state-of-the-art techniques necessary to carry out investigations of the cardiovascular system using modeling and simulation. Part I of this two-volumesequence, Biology, addresses the nanoscopic and microscopic scales. The nanoscale corresponds to the scale of biochemical reaction cascades involved in cell adaptation to mechanical stresses among other stimuli. The microscale is thescale of stress-induced tissue remodeling associate d with acute or chronic loadings. The cardiovascular system, like any physiological system, has a complicated three-dimensional structure and composition. Its time dependent behavioris regulated, and this complex system has many components. In this author itative work, the author provides a survey of relevant cell components and processes, with detailed coverage of the electrical and mechanical behaviors ofvascular cells, tissues, and organs. Because the behaviors of vascular cells and tissues are tightly coupled to the mechanics of flowing blood, the major features of blood flows and the Navier-Stokes equations of mass and momentumconservation are introduced at the conclusion of this volume. This book will appeal to any biologist, chemist, physicist, or a pplied mathematician with an interest in the functioning of the cardiovascular system

Note:For over forty years, Robert Gilmers numerous articles and books have had a tremendous impact on research in commutative algebra. It is not an exaggeration to say that most articles published today in non-Noetherian ringtheory, and some in Noetherian ring theory as well, originated in a topic that Gilmer either initiated or enriched by his work. This volume, a tribute to his work, consists of twenty-four articles authored by Robert Gilmers mostprominent students and followers. These articles combine surveys of past work by Gilmer and others, recent results which have never before seen print, open problems, and extensive bibliographies. In a concluding article, Robert Gilmerpoints out directions for future research, highlighting the open problems in t he areas he considers of importance. Robert Gilmers article is followed by the complete list of his published works, his mathematical genealogical tree,information on the writing of his four books, and reminiscences about Robert Gilmers contributions to t he stimulating research environment in commutative algebra at Florida State in the middle 1960s.

Title:Dose Finding in Drug Development [electronic resource]
Author(s): Naitee Ting
Date:2006
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:When you go to the pharmacy and fill a prescription, have you ever wondered if the dose of the medication is right for you? Can the dose be too low so that the drug will not work? Can the dose be too high that it may cause somepotential problem? How do people learn about dosing information? This book answers some of these questions. Dosing information on the drug label is based on discussion and agreement between the pharmaceutical manufacturer and the drugregulatory agency. A drug label is a high le vel summary of results obtained from many scientific experiments. Scientists with biological, chemical, medical, or statistical background working in the pharmaceutical industry designed andexecuted these experiments to obtain information to help understa nd the dosing information. This book introduces the drug development process, the design and analysis of clinical trials. Many of the discussions are based onapplications of statistical methods in the design and analysis of dose response studies. Although the book is prepared mainly for statisticians/biostatisticians, it also serves as a useful reference to a variety of professionalsworking for the pharmaceutical industry. The potential readers include pharmacokienticists, clinical scientists, clinical ph armacologists, pharmacists, project managers, pharmaceutical scientists, clinicians, programmers, datamanagers, regulatory specialists, and study report writers. This book is also a good reference for professionals working in a drug regulatory environment , for example, the FDA. Scientists and/or reviewers from both U.S. and foreigndrug regulatory agencies can benefit greatly from this book. In addition, statistical and medical professionals in academia may find this book helpful in understanding the drug development process and practical concerns in selectingdoses for a new drug.

Title:Missing Data and Small-Area Estimation [electronic resource] : Modern Analytical Equipment for the Survey Statistician
Author(s): Nicholas T Longford
Date:2005
Publisher:London : Springer London
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book develops methods for two key problems in the analysis of large-scale surveys: dealing with incomplete data and making inferences about sparsely represented subdomains. The presentation is committed to two particularmethods, multiple imputat ion for missing data and multivariate composition for small-area estimation. The methods are presented as developments of established approaches by attending to their deficiencies. Thus the change to moreefficient methods can be gradual, sensitive to the management priorities in large research organisations and multidisciplinary teams and to other reasons for inertia. The typical setting of each problem is addressed first, and then theconstituency of the applications is widened to reinforce the view that the general method is essential for modern survey analysis. The general tone of the book is not from theory to practice, but from current practice to betterpractice. The third part of the book, a single chapter, presents a method for efficient estimation under model uncertainty. It is inspired by the solution for small-area estimation and is an example of from good practice to bettertheory. A strength of the presentation is chapters of case studies, one for each problem. Whenever possible, turning to exam ples and illustrations is preferred to the theoretical argument. The book is suitable for graduate studentsand researchers who are acquainted with the fundamentals of sampling theory and have a good grounding in statistical computing, or in conjunction wi th an intensive period of learning and establishing one's own a modern computing andgraphical environment that would serve the reader for most of the analytical work in the future. While some analysts might regard data imperfections and deficiencies, such as nonresponse and limited sample size, as someone else'sfailure that bars effective and valid analysis, this book presents them as respectable analytical and inferential challenges, opportunitie

Note:Granular or particulate materials arise in almost every aspect of our lives, including many familiar materials such as tea, coffee, sugar, sand, cement and powders. At some stage almost every industrial process involves aparticulate material, and it is usually the cause of the disruption to the smooth running of the process. In the natural environment, understanding the behaviour of particulate materials is vital in many geophysical processes such asearthquakes, landslides and avalanches. This book i s a collection of current research from some of the major contributors in the topic of modelling the behaviour of granular materials. Papers from every area of current activity areincluded, such as theoretical, numerical, engineering and computational app roaches. This book illustrates the numerous diverse approaches to one of the outstanding problems of modern continuum mechanics

Title:The Basics of S-PLUS [electronic resource]
Author(s): Andreas Krause
Melvin Olson
Date:2005
Edition:Fourth Edition
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book explains the basics of S-PLUS in a clear style at a level suitable for people with little computing or statistical knowledge. Unlike the manuals, it is not comprehensive, but instead introduces the most important ideasof S-PLUS and R, its c ompanion in implementing the S language. The authors take the reader on a journey into the world of interactive computing, data exploration, and statistical analysis. They explain how to approach data sets andteach the corresponding S-PLUS commands. A col lection of exercises summarizes the main ideas of each chapter. The exercises are accompanied by solutions that are worked out in full detail, and the code is ready to use and to bemodified. The volume is rounded off with practical hints on how efficient work can be performed in S-PLUS, for example by pointing out how to set up a good working environment and how to integrate S-PLUS with office products. The bookis well suited for self-study and as a textbook. It serves as an introduction to S-PLUS as well as R. A separate chapter points out the major differences between R and S-PLUS. Over the last editions, the book has been updated to coverimportant changes like the inclusion of S Language Version 4, Trellis graphics, a graphical user interface, and many useful tips and tricks. The fourth edition is based on S-PLUS Version 7.0 for Windows and UNIX and has been updatedand revised accordingly
