#### Protein Homology Detection Through Alignment of Markov Random Fields

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This work covers sequence-based protein homology detection, a fundamental and challenging bioinformatics problem with a variety of real-world applications. The text first surveys a few popular homology detection methods, such as Position-Specific Scoring Matrix (PSSM) and Hidden Markov Model (HMM) based methods, and then describes a novel Markov Random... more...

#### Random Fields and Stochastic Lagrangian Models

De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00Probabilistic approach and stochastic simulation become more and more popular in all branches of science and technology, especially in problems where the data are randomly fluctuating, or they are highly irregular in deterministic sense. As a rule, in such problems it is very difficult and expensive to carry out measurements to extract... more...

#### Lectures on Gaussian Processes

Springer 2012; US$ 49.95Gaussian processes can be viewed as a far-reaching infinite-dimensional extension of classical normal random variables. Their theory presents a powerful range of tools for probabilistic modelling in various academic and technical domains such as Statistics, Forecasting, Finance, Information Transmission, Machine Learning - to mention just a few. The... more...

#### Counting Processes and Survival Analysis

Wiley 2011; US$ 163.00The Wiley-Interscience Paperback Series consists of selected books that have been made more accessible to consumers in an effort to increase global appeal and general circulation. With these new unabridged softcover volumes, Wiley hopes to extend the lives of these works by making them available to future generations of statisticians, mathematicians,... more...

#### Wiener Chaos: Moments, Cumulants and Diagrams

Springer 2011; US$ 139.00The concept of Wiener chaos generalizes to an infinite-dimensional setting the properties of orthogonal polynomials associated with probability distributions on the real line. It plays a crucial role in modern probability theory, with applications ranging from Malliavin calculus to stochastic differential equations and from probabilistic approximations... more...

#### Poisson Point Processes

Springer US 2010; US$ 149.00Offers an overview of non-homogeneous Poisson point processes Covers applications ranging from emissions tomography to multi-target tracking Discusses topics wihich competitive texts lack, such as intensity estimation techniques and finite random sets more...

#### The Gaussian Approximation Potential

Springer 2010; US$ 129.00Simulation of materials at the atomistic level is an important tool in studying microscopic structures and processes. The atomic interactions necessary for the simulations are correctly described by Quantum Mechanics, but the size of systems and the length of processes that can be modelled are still limited. The framework of Gaussian Approximation... more...

#### Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields

Wiley 2009; US$ 144.00A timely and comprehensive treatment of random field theory with applications across diverse areas of study Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields discusses how to understand the properties of the level sets of paths as well as how to compute the probability distribution of its extremal values, which are two general classes of problems... more...

#### Random Fields and Geometry

Springer 2009; US$ 99.00A monograph that is devoted to a fresh approach to geometric problems arising in the study of random fields, namely, the geometry of excursion sets of random fields and the related Euler characteristic approach to extremal probabilities. more...

#### Symmetric Functionals on Random Matrices and Random Matchings Problems

Springer 2007; US$ 129.00Drawn from the literature on the asymptotic behavior of random permanents and random matchings, this book presents a connection between the problem of an asymptotic behavior for a certain family of functionals on random matrices and the asymptotic results in the classical theory of the U-statistics. more...
