applied Mathematics A Classical Introduction to Galois Theory Stephen C. Newman, Univ. of Alberta, Canada This book provides an introduction to Galois theory and focuses on one central theme – the solvability of polynomials by radicals. Both classical and modern approaches to the subject are described, with the theme of the book providing a platform for exploring both classical and modern concepts. This book examines a number of problems arising in the area of classical mathematics. The classical material within the book includes theorems on polynomials, fields, and groups due to such luminaries as Gauss, Kronecker, Lagrange, Ruffini and, of course, Galois. Over the course of the book, three versions of the Impossibility Theorem are presented: the first relies entirely on polynomials and fields, the second incorporates a limited amount of group theory, and the third takes full advantage of modern Galois theory. This progression through methods that involve more and more group theory characterizes the first part of the book. The latter part of the book is devoted to topics that illustrate the power of Galois theory as a computational tool, but once again in the context of solvability of polynomial equations by radicals. 296 pages • July 2012 Print: 978-1-118-09139-5 • CL • US$74.95 Online: 978-1-118-33681-6

applied Mathematics in engineering Bayesian Estimation and Tracking A Practical Guide Anton J. Haug This book presents a practical approach to estimation methods that are designed to provide a clear path to programming all algorithms. Readers are provided with a firm understanding of Bayesian estimation methods and their interrelatedness. Starting with fundamental principles of Bayesian theory, the book shows how each tracking filter is derived from a slight modification to a previous filter. Such a development gives readers a broader understanding of the hierarchy of Bayesian estimation and tracking. This book also presents the development and application of track performance metrics, including how to generate error ellipses when implementing in real-world applications, how to calculate RMS errors in simulation environments, and how to calculate Cramer-Rao lower bounds for the RMS errors. These are also illustrated in the case study presentations. 400 pages • June 2012 Print: 978-0-470-62170-7 • CL • US$124.95 Online: 978-1-118-28779-8

The Blind Side of Statistics Herbert I. Weisberg This provocative new book posits how the tacit principle of “willful ignorance” has led to a deep divide between qualitative and quantitative modes of research that will increasingly constrain scientific progress unless bridged by a broadened conception of statistical methodology. It presents numerous examples, both hypothetical and real, to illustrate and support the main premise; offers a non-technical, historical survey of core statistical concepts; and speculates about the future evolution of statistics. Clinicians will find this book to be of particular interest, as will others interested in observational statistics.

A Short Course

Textbook

M. Panik, Univ. of Hartford Statistical Inference: A Short Course is general in nature and is appropriate for undergraduates and first-year graduates majoring in the natural sciences, the social sciences, or in business. While most beginning statistics books discuss the concepts of simple random sampling and normality, this book takes such discussions a bit further. Other unique topics found in the book include determining a confidence interval for a population median, ratio estimation (a technique akin to estimating a population proportion), general discussions of randomness and causality, and nonparametric methods that serve as an alternative to parametric routines when the latter are not strictly applicable. 440 pages • June 2012 Print: 978-1-118-22940-8 • CL • US$114.95 Online: 978-1-118-30977-3

applied Probability & statistics Classic Problems of Probability

Previously Announced

Prakash Gorroochurn Detailing the history of probability, this book examines the classic problems of probability, many of which have shaped the field, and emphasizes problems that are counter-intuitive by nature. Classic Problems of Probability is rich in the history of probability while keeping the explanations and discussions as accessible as possible. Each of 33 presented problems contains listing of the latest relevant publications on the topic, and the author provides detailed and rigorous mathematical proofs as needed. For example, in the discussion of the Buffon needle problem, readers will find much more than the conventional discussion found in other books on the topic. The author discusses alternative proofs by Barbier that lead to much more profound and general results. The choice of random variables for which a uniform distribution is possible is also presented, which then naturally leads to a discussion on invariance. Other topics discusses include Cardano, the Chevalier de Mere paradoxes, Jacob Bernoulli and the law of large numbers, the discovery of the normal curve, the lady tasting tea, the Monty-Hall problem, and many more. 330 pages • June 2012 Print: 978-1-118-06325-5 • PB • US$59.95 Online: 978-1-118-31434-0

Modelling Under Risk and Uncertainty An Introduction to Statistical, Phenomenological and Computational Methods Etienne de Rocquigny, Electricite De France Modelling Under Risk and Uncertainty goes beyond the ‘black-box’ view that some risk analysts or statisticians develop the underlying phenomenology of the environmental or industrial processes, without valuing enough their physical properties and inner modelling potential; conversely it is also to attract environmental or engineering modellers to more elaborate statistical and risk analysis material beyond for example, elementary variance analysis, taking advantage of advanced scientific computing, to face new regulations departing from deterministic design or decision-making. Researchers in applied statistics, scientific computing, reliability, advanced mechanics, physics or environmental science will benefit from this book. 488 pages • May 2012 Print: 978-0-470-69514-2 • CL • US$115.00 Online: 978-1-119-96949-5

Patrick Muldowney, Univ. of Ulster This book presents a self-contained study of the Riemann approach to the theory of random variation and assumes only some familiarity with probability or statistical analysis, basic Riemann integration, and mathematical proofs. The author focuses on non-absolute convergence in conjunction with random variation. The central and recurring theme throughout this book is that, provided the use a non-absolute method of summation, every finitely additive, function of disjoint intervals is integrable. In contrast, more traditional methods in probability theory exclude significant classes of such functions whose integrability cannot be established whenever only absolute convergence is considered. An example such as the Feynman “measure-which-is-not-a-measure” – the so-called probability amplitudes used in the Feynman path integrals of quantum mechanics. This book presents a framework in which the Feynman path integrals are actual integrals, and they are utilized to express Feynman diagrams as convergent series of integrals. 512 pages • July 2012 Print: 978-1-118-16640-6 • CL • US$114.95 Online: 978-1-118-34595-5

Previously Announced

Emmanuel Lesaffre, Catholic University of Leuven; Andrew B. Lawson, University of South Carolina

The growth of biostatistics has been phenomenal in recent years and has been marked by considerable technical innovation in both methodology and computational practicality. The growing use of Bayesian methodology has taken place partly due to an increasing number of practitioners valuing the Bayesian paradigm as matching that of scientific discovery. In addition, computational advances have allowed for more complex models to be fitted routinely to realistic data sets. Through examples, exercises and a combination of introductory and more advanced chapters, this book provides an invaluable understanding of the complex world of biomedical statistics illustrated via a diverse range of applications taken from epidemiology, exploratory clinical studies, health promotion studies, image analysis and clinical trials. 536 pages • July 2012 Print: 978-0-470-01823-1 • CL • US$75.00 Online: 978-1-119-94241-2

Log-Linear Modeling

Causality

Alexander von Eye, Eun-Young Mun Over the past ten years, there have been many important advances in log-linear modeling, including the specification of new models, in particular non-standard models, and their relationships to methods such as Rasch modeling. While most literature on the topic is contained in volumes aimed at advanced statisticians, Applied Log-Linear Modeling presents the topic in an accessible style that is customized for applied researchers who utilize log-linear modeling in the social sciences. The book begins by providing readers with a foundation on the basics of log-linear modeling, introducing decomposing effects in crosstabulations and goodness-of-fit tests. Popular hierarchical log-linear models are illustrated using empirical data examples, and odds ratio analysis is discussed as an interesting method of analysis of crosstabulations. Next, readers are introduced to the design matrix approach to log-linear modeling, presenting various forms of coding (effects coding, dummy coding, Helmert contrasts etc.) and the characteristics of design matrices. Additional topics of coverage include models of marginal homogeneity, rater agreement, methods to test hypotheses about differences in associations across subgroup, the relationship between log-linear modeling to logistic regression, and reduced designs. Throughout the book, Computer Applications chapters feature SYSTAT, Lem, and R illustrations of the previous chapter’s material, utilizing empirical data examples to demonstrate the relevance of the topics in modern research.

Textbook

2ND EDITION

Stephen Westland, University of Leeds; Caterina Ripamonti, University College London; Vien Cheung, University of Leeds Computational Colour Science Using MATLAB 2nd Edition offers a practical, problem-based approach to colour physics. The book focuses on the key issues encountered in modern colour engineering, including efficient representation of colour information, Fourier analysis of reflectance spectra and advanced colorimetric computation. Emphasis is placed on the practical applications rather than the techniques themselves, with material structured around key topics. These topics include colour calibration of visual displays, computer recipe prediction and models for colour-appearance prediction. Each topic is carefully introduced at three levels to aid student understanding. First, theoretical ideas and background information are discussed, then explanations of mathematical solutions follow and finally practical solutions are presented using MATLAB.
