Differential equations with “maxima”—differential equations that contain the maximum of the unknown function over a previous interval—adequately model real-world processes whose present state significantly depends on the maximum value of the state on a past time interval. This book guides readers toward further investigations and applications of these equations for a more accurate study of real-world problems. It explains how to find solutions to initial value and boundary value problems as well as how to study stability and oscillatory properties of solutions.

This work illustrates the value of Fourier series methods in solving difficult nonlinear PDEs. Using these methods, the author presents results for stationary Navier-Stokes equations, nonlinear reaction-diffusion systems, and quasilinear elliptic PDEs and resonance theory. He also establishes the connection between multiple Fourier series and number theory, presents the periodic Cα-theory of Calderon and Zygmund, and explores the extension of Fatou’s famous work on antiderivatives and nontangential limits to higher dimensions. The importance of surface spherical harmonic functions is emphasized throughout.

A Numeraire Approach

Sven Sandow

Jan Vecer Columbia University, New York, New York, USA Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics

Morgan Stanley, New York, New York, USA Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Machine Learning & Pattern Recognition

This classroom-tested text provides a deep understanding of derivative contracts. Unlike much of the existing literature, the book treats price as a number of units of one asset needed for an acquisition of a unit of another asset instead of expressing prices in dollar terms exclusively. This numeraire approach leads to simpler pricing options for complex products, such as barrier, lookback, quanto, and Asian options. With many examples and exercises, the text relies on intuition and basic principles, rather than technical computations.

This book provides a pedagogical, self-contained discussion of probability estimation methods via a coherent approach from the viewpoint of a decision maker who acts in an uncertain environment. This approach is motivated by the idea that probabilistic models are usually not learned for their own sake; rather, they are used to make decisions. By taking this point of view, the book sheds light on and generalizes some popular statistical learning approaches, connecting ideas from information theory, statistics, and finance.

Stochastic Financial Models

Accurate Condensed-Phase Quantum Chemistry Edited by

Douglas Kennedy

Frederick R. Manby

Trinity College, Cambridge, UK Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Financial Mathematics

University of Bristol, UK Series: Computation in Chemistry

Developed from the esteemed author’s courses at the University of Cambridge, this text provides a hands-on, sound introduction to mathematical finance. Assuming no prior knowledge of stochastic calculus or measure-theoretic probability, the author includes the relevant mathematical background as well as many exercises with solutions. He first presents the classical topics of utility and the meanvariance approach to portfolio choice. Focusing on derivative pricing, the text then covers the binomial model, the general discrete-time model, Brownian motion, the Black–Scholes model, and various interest-rate models.

Much of the success of the theoretical methods of quantum chemistry can be attributed to the maturation of hierarchies of approximation, which allow one to approach very high accuracy provided that sufficient computational resources are available. Until recently, these hierarchies have not been available in condensedphase chemistry. Recent advances in the field now have led to a group of methods that are capable of reaching this goal. This book addresses these new methods and the problems to which they can be applied.

Based on our knowledge of the functioning human brain, artificial neural networks (ANNs) serve as a modern paradigm for computing. This book provides a comprehensive introduction and practical guide to the development, optimization, and application of ANNs in modern environmental and biological analysis. Presenting basic principles together with simulated biological and environmental data sets and real applications in the field, the text helps scientists use the power of the ANN model to explain physical concepts and to demonstrate complex natural processes.

It is essential for modern students of molecular behavior to understand the physics at the heart of modern molecular science, but traditional presentations of this material are often difficult to penetrate. This volume brings down to earth some of the most intimidating but important theories of molecular biophysics. Students build understanding by focusing on probability theory, low-dimensional models, and the simplest molecular systems. The book’s accessible development of equilibrium and dynamical statistical physics makes it a valuable text for students with limited physics and chemistry backgrounds.

Modern Statistics for the Social and Behavioral Sciences A Practical Introduction

Introduction to Data Analysis with R for Forensic Scientists James Michael Curran

Rand Wilcox University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA

Designed for graduate students in the social sciences, this text introduces three major insights: 1) justifying normality via the central limit theorem can require much larger sample sizes than once thought; 2) the impact of heavytailed distributions on power, measures of effect size, and measures of association can be devastating even with large sample sizes; and 3) heteroscedasticity can invalidate classic methods. Focusing on conceptual issues rather than complex computational details, the book provides a library of R functions for applying modern methods that effectively deal with these insights. Catalog no.

Uppsala University, Sweden Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science

Brian S. Everitt

Based on the authors’ lecture notes, this text presents concise yet complete coverage of statistical inference theory, focusing on the fundamental classical principles. Unlike related textbooks, it combines the theoretical basis of statistical inference with a useful applied toolbox that includes linear models. Suitable for an undergraduate course on statistical inference, the text offers proofs to support the mathematics and does not require any use of measure theory. It illustrates core concepts using cartoons and provides solutions to all examples and problems.

This book introduces basic probability and statistics through bite-size coverage of key topics. An ideal revision aid and study guide for undergraduate students, it describes key concepts from probability and statistics in self-contained sections. For non-statisticians from various scientific disciplines, the book provides an easy-to-follow reference for basic statistical techniques. It shows how statistics can be applied in the real world, with lots of interesting examples and plenty of diagrams and graphs to illustrate the concepts more clearly.

R for Statistics Pierre-Andre Cornillon, Arnaud Guyader, Francois Husson, Nicolas Jegou, Julie Josse, Maela Kloareg, Eric Matzner-Lober, and Laurent Rouviere This text explores the use of R for classical statistical analysis. The first half of the book introduces R, data manipulation and visualization, statistical models, graphics, and R programming. The second half presents various statistical analysis techniques by first introducing the data example, then describing the problem to solve, and finally conducting the analysis using R. This examplebased approach enables readers to replicate the analyses using their own data. Some of the techniques covered include simple regression, multiple regression, ANOVA, logistic regression, principal component analysis, and clustering. Catalog no.
