#### Spatial Statistics and Spatio-Temporal Data

Wiley 2011; US$ 111.95In the spatial or spatio-temporal context, specifying the correct covariance function is fundamental to obtain efficient predictions, and to understand the underlying physical process of interest. This book focuses on covariance and variogram functions, their role in prediction, and appropriate choice of these functions in applications. Both recent... more...

#### MacLaurin's Physical Dissertations

Springer 2007; US$ 119.00The Scottish mathematician Colin MacLaurin (1698-1746) is known for developing and extending Newton's work in calculus, geometry and gravitation; his "Treatise of Fluxions" was the first exposition of Newton's methods. This book presents these important works in translation, preceded by a translation of MacLaurin's MA dissertation... more...

#### Statistics in a Nutshell

O'Reilly Media 2009; US$ 27.99Need to learn statistics as part of your job, or want some help passing a statistics course? Statistics in a Nutshell is a clear and concise introduction and reference that's perfect for anyone with no previous background in the subject. This book gives you a solid understanding of statistics without being too simple, yet without the numbing complexity... more...

#### The Oxford Handbook of Applied Bayesian Analysis

Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 149.99Bayesian analysis has developed rapidly in applications in the last two decades and research in Bayesian methods remains dynamic and fast-growing. Dramatic advances in modelling concepts and computational technologies now enable routine application of Bayesian analysis using increasingly realistic stochastic models, and this drives the adoption of... more...

#### Quasi-Monte Carlo Methods in Finance

Diplomica Verlag 2008; US$ 39.80Portfolio optimization is a widely studied problem in finance dating back to the work of Merton from the 1960s. While many approaches rely on dynamic programming, some recent contributions use martingale techniques to determine the optimal portfolio allocation. Using the latter approach, we follow a journal article from 2003 and show how optimal portfolio... more...

#### Statistical Analysis of Spherical Data

Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 84.00This is the first comprehensive, yet clearly presented, account of statistical methods for analysing spherical data. The analysis of data, in the form of directions in space or of positions of points on a spherical surface, is required in many contexts in the earth sciences, astrophysics and other fields, yet the methodology required is disseminated... more...

#### Systems of Frequency Curves

Cambridge University Press 1969; US$ 32.00It should be of especial value as a quick reference book for formulae and methods used in fitting frequency curves. more...

#### Introduction to Numerical Analysis

Cambridge University Press 2001; US$ 76.00This 2001 textbook provides an introduction to constructive methods that provide accurate approximations to the solution of numerical problems using MATLAB. more...

#### General Irreducible Markov Chains and Non-Negative Operators

Cambridge University Press 1984; US$ 44.00Presents the theory of general irreducible Markov chains and its connection to the Perron-Frobenius theory of nonnegative operators. more...

#### John Pell (1611-1685) and His Correspondence with Sir Charles Cavendish

Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 249.99The mathematician John Pell was a member of that golden generation of scientists Boyle, Wren, Hooke, and others which came together in the early Royal Society. Although he left a huge body of manuscript materials, he has remained an extraordinarily neglected figure, whose papers have never been properly explored. This book, the first ever full-length... more...
