Mathematical Methods of Statistics PMS 9

Author: Harald Cramér
Publisher: Princeton University Press
ISBN: 9781400883868
Release Date: 2016-06-02
Genre: Mathematics

In this classic of statistical mathematical theory, Harald Cramér joins the two major lines of development in the field: while British and American statisticians were developing the science of statistical inference, French and Russian probabilitists transformed the classical calculus of probability into a rigorous and pure mathematical theory. The result of Cramér's work is a masterly exposition of the mathematical methods of modern statistics that set the standard that others have since sought to follow. For anyone with a working knowledge of undergraduate mathematics the book is self contained. The first part is an introduction to the fundamental concept of a distribution and of integration with respect to a distribution. The second part contains the general theory of random variables and probability distributions while the third is devoted to the theory of sampling, statistical estimation, and tests of significance.

Release Date: 1998-01-01
Genre: Science

This comprehensive, well organized and easy to read book presents concepts in a unified framework to establish a similarity in the methods of solutions and analysis of such diverse systems as algebraic equations, ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations. The distin-guishing feature of the book is the clear focus on analytical methods of solving equations. The text explains how the methods meant to elucidate linear problems can be extended to analyse nonlinear problems. The book also discusses in detail modern concepts like bifurcation theory and chaos.To attract engineering students to applied mathematics, the author explains the concepts in a clear, concise and straightforward manner, with the help of examples and analysis. The significance of analytical methods and concepts for the engineer/scientist interested in numerical applications is clearly brought out.Intended as a textbook for the postgraduate students in engineering, the book could also be of great help to the research students.

Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering

Author: K. F. Riley
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781139450997
Release Date: 2006-03-23
Genre: Science

The third edition of this highly acclaimed undergraduate textbook is suitable for teaching all the mathematics for an undergraduate course in any of the physical sciences. As well as lucid descriptions of all the topics and many worked examples, it contains over 800 exercises. New stand-alone chapters give a systematic account of the 'special functions' of physical science, cover an extended range of practical applications of complex variables, and give an introduction to quantum operators. Further tabulations, of relevance in statistics and numerical integration, have been added. In this edition, half of the exercises are provided with hints and answers and, in a separate manual available to both students and their teachers, complete worked solutions. The remaining exercises have no hints, answers or worked solutions and can be used for unaided homework; full solutions are available to instructors on a password-protected web site,

Mathematical Methods in Science

Author: George Pólya
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0883856263
Release Date: 1977
Genre: Mathematics

This book captures some of Pólya's excitement and vision. Its distinctive feature is the stress on the history of certain elementary chapters of science; these can be a source of enjoyment and deeper understanding of mathematics even for beginners who have little, or perhaps no, knowledge of physics.

Advanced Mathematical Methods

Author: Adam Ostaszewski
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521289645
Release Date: 1990
Genre: Mathematics

Written in an appealing and informal style, this text is a self-contained second course on mathematical methods dealing with topics in linear algebra and multivariate calculus that can be applied to statistics, operations research, computer science, econometrics and mathematical economics. The prerequisites are elementary courses in linear algebra and calculus, but the author has maintained a balance between a rigorous theoretical and a cookbook approach, giving concrete and geometric explanations, so that the material will be accessible to students who have not studied mathematics in depth. Indeed, as much of the material is normally available only in technical textbooks, this book will have wide appeal to students whose interest is in application rather than theory. The book is amply supplied with examples and exercises: complete solutions to a large proportion of these are provided.

Mathematical Methods in Linguistics

Author: Barbara B.H. Partee
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789400922136
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Elementary set theory accustoms the students to mathematical abstraction, includes the standard constructions of relations, functions, and orderings, and leads to a discussion of the various orders of infinity. The material on logic covers not only the standard statement logic and first-order predicate logic but includes an introduction to formal systems, axiomatization, and model theory. The section on algebra is presented with an emphasis on lattices as well as Boolean and Heyting algebras. Background for recent research in natural language semantics includes sections on lambda-abstraction and generalized quantifiers. Chapters on automata theory and formal languages contain a discussion of languages between context-free and context-sensitive and form the background for much current work in syntactic theory and computational linguistics. The many exercises not only reinforce basic skills but offer an entry to linguistic applications of mathematical concepts. For upper-level undergraduate students and graduate students in theoretical linguistics, computer-science students with interests in computational linguistics, logic programming and artificial intelligence, mathematicians and logicians with interests in linguistics and the semantics of natural language.

Texture Analysis in Materials Science

ISBN: 9781483278391
Release Date: 2013-09-03
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Texture Analysis in Materials Science Mathematical Methods focuses on the methodologies, processes, techniques, and mathematical aids in the orientation distribution of crystallites. The manuscript first offers information on the orientation of individual crystallites and orientation distributions. Topics include properties and representations of rotations, orientation distance, and ambiguity of rotation as a consequence of crystal and specimen symmetry. The book also takes a look at expansion of orientation distribution functions in series of generalized spherical harmonics, fiber textures, and methods not based on the series expansion. The publication reviews special distribution functions, texture transformation, and system of programs for the texture analysis of sheets of cubic materials. The text also ponders on the estimation of errors, texture analysis, and physical properties of polycrystalline materials. Topics include comparison of experimental and recalculated pole figures; indetermination error for incomplete pole figures; and determination of the texture coefficients from anisotropie polycrystal properties. The manuscript is a dependable reference for readers interested in the use of mathematical aids in the orientation distribution of crystallites.
