This third edition of a classic textbook presents a comprehensive introduction to Bayesian data analysis. Written for students and researchers alike, the text is written in an easily accessible manner with chapters that contain many exercises as well as detailed worked examples taken from various disciplines. This third edition provides two new chapters on Bayesian nonparametrics and covers computation systems BUGS and R. It also offers enhanced computing advice. The book 's website includes solutions to the problems, data sets, software advice, and other ancillary material.
Fractals are one of the most incredible branches of mathematics. They are a language that can describe the precise shape of a human brain or the universe. Everywhere we look, fractals fill our world. Over 10000 copies have been sold in the US. Using unique text and graphics it tells the story of fractals and shows why they are invaluable for everything, from understanding our own bodies to predicting where hidden oil reserves are located.
Complete works of ancient geometer feature such topics as the famous problems of the ratio of the areas of a cylinder and an inscribed sphere; the properties of conoids, spheroids, and spirals; more.
The boundary element method (BEM), also known as the boundary integral equation method (BIEM), is a modern numerical technique which has enjoyed increasing popularity over the past two decades. It is now an established alternative to traditional computational methods of engineering analysis. The main advantage of the BEM is its unique ability to provide a complete solution in terms of boundary values only, with substantial savings in modeling effort. This book is designed to provide readers with a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the method and its application to problems in engineering and science. Each chapter provides a brief description of historical development, followed by basic theory, derivation and examples.
Core-Plus Mathematics," is a standards-based, four-year integrated series covering the same mathematics concepts students learn in the Algebra 1-Geometry-Algebra 2-Precalculus sequence. Concepts from algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics are integrated, and the mathematics is developed using context-centered investigations. Developed by the CORE-Plus Math Project at Western Michigan University with funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), "Core-Plus Mathematics" is written for all students to be successful in mathematics. "Core-Plus Mathematics" is the number one high school NSF/reform program and it is published by Glencoe/McGraw-Hill, the nation's number one secondary mathematics company.
This concise but thorough history encompasses the enduring contributions of the ancient Greek mathematicians whose works form the basis of most modern mathematics. Discusses Pythagorean arithmetic, Plato, Euclid, more. 1931 edition.
Focusing on applicable rather than applied mathematics, this text is appropriate for advanced undergraduates majoring in any discipline. The author emphasizes basic real analysis as well as differential equations. 1986 edition. Includes 39 figures.
This text starts with Fourier series, summability, norm convergence, and conjugate function. Additional topics include Hilbert transform, Paley theory, Cauchy integrals on Lipschitz curves, and boundary value problems. 1986 edition.
