#### Computational Physics

Wiley 2015; US$ 135.00The use of computation and simulation has become an essential part of the scientific process. Being able to transform a theory into an algorithm requires significant theoretical insight, detailed physical and mathematical understanding, and a working level of competency in programming. This upper-division text provides an unusually broad survey... more...

#### Mathematics for Physicists

Wiley 2015; US$ 181.50Mathematics for Physicists is a relatively short volume covering all the essential mathematics needed for a typical first degree in physics, from a starting point that is compatible with modern school mathematics syllabuses. Early chapters deliberately overlap with senior school mathematics, to a degree that will depend on the background of the... more...

#### Zur Robustheit von Konfidenzbereichen und Tests für Erwartungswerte

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2015; US$ 59.99Achim Mees untersucht Fragen zur Robustheit von Konfidenzbereichen und statistischen Tests, wobei der Fokus auf Konfidenzbereichen und Tests für den Erwartungswert unabhängiger identisch verteilter Beobachtungsgrößen liegt. Neben der Zusammenfassung und Ausarbeitung bereits bestehender Ergebnisse werden zwei neue Resultate präsentiert. Zum einen wird... more...

#### Optimized Response-Adaptive Clinical Trials

Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2014; US$ 89.99Two-armed response-adaptive clinical trials are modelled as Markov decision problems to pursue two overriding objectives: Firstly, to identify the superior treatment at the end of the trial and, secondly, to keep the number of patients receiving the inferior treatment small. Such clinical trial designs are very important, especially for rare diseases.... more...

Wiley 2014; US$ 138.50The new edition is significantly updated and expanded. This unique collection of review articles, ranging from fundamental concepts up to latest applications, contains individual contributions written by renowned experts in the relevant fields. Much attention is paid to ensuring fast access to the information, with each carefully reviewed article... more...

#### Stochastik für das Lehramt

De Gruyter 2014; US$ 42.00Students of the teaching profession view stochastics as difficult to understand and complex. This book provides a clear, precise, and structured introduction to this material. It includes many descriptive examples, such as games of chance, which help promote understanding. Thus, the textbook is not only an ideal accompaniment to courses... more...

#### A Finite Element Primer for Beginners

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 54.99The purpose of this primer is to provide the basics of the Finite Element Method, primarily illustrated through a classical model problem, linearized elasticity. The topics covered are: (1) Weighted residual methods and Galerkin approximations, (2) A model problem for one-dimensional linear elastostatics, (3) Weak formulations in one dimension,... more...

#### Differential Geometry and Kinematics of Continua

World Scientific Publishing Company 2014; US$ 44.00This book provides definitions and mathematical derivations of fundamental relationships of tensor analysis encountered in nonlinear continuum mechanics and continuum physics, with a focus on finite deformation kinematics and classical differential geometry. Of particular interest are anholonomic aspects arising from a multiplicative decomposition... more...
