Modern Problems of Stochastic Analysis and Statistics: Selected Contributions In Honor of Valentin Konakov By Vladimir Panov

English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 506 Pages | ISBN : 3319653121 | 15.64 MB

This book brings together the latest findings in the area of stochastic analysis and statistics. The individual chapters cover a wide range of topics from limit theorems, Markov processes, nonparametric methods, acturial science, population dynamics, and many others.

The volume is dedicated to Valentin Konakov, head of the International Laboratory of Stochastic Analysis and its Applications on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Contributions were prepared by the participants of the international conference of the international conference “Modern problems of stochastic analysis and statistics”, held at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow from May 29 – June 2, 2016. It offers a valuable reference resource for researchers and graduate students interested in modern stochastics.

J. S. Milne, “Elliptic Curves”

English | 2006 | ISBN: 1419652575 | PDF | pages: 246 | 3.4 mb

This book uses the beautiful theory of elliptic curves to introduce the reader to some of the deeper aspects of number theory. It assumes only a knowledge of the basic algebra, complex analysis, and topology usually taught in advanced undergraduate or first-year graduate courses.

Reviews

Indeed, the book is affordable (in fact, the most affordable of all references on the subject), but also a high quality work and a complete introduction to the rich theory of the arithmetic of elliptic curves, with numerous examples and exercises for the reader, many interesting remarks and an updated bibliography.

Mathematical Reviews, Álvaro Lozano-Robledo

J. S. Milne’s lecture notes on elliptic curves are already well-known … The book under review is a rewritten version of just these famous lecture notes from 1996, which appear here as a compact and inexpensive paperback that is now available worldwide.

Fernando Q. Gouvea, Noriko Yui – Advances in Number Theory

Published: 1993-05-20 | ISBN: 0198536682 | PDF + DJVU | 560 pages | 17.95 MB

This book contains the proceedings of the third conference of the Canadian Number Theory Association. The 38 technical papers presented in this volume discuss relevant and timely issues in the fields of analytic number theory, arithmetical algebraic geometry, and diophantine approximation. The book includes several papers honoring Paulo Ribenboim, to whom this conference was dedicated.

There is no one best way for an undergraduate student to learn elementary algebra. Some kinds of presentations will please some learners and will disenchant others. This text presents elementary algebra organized accord ing to some principles of universal algebra. Many students find such a presentation of algebra appealing and easier to comprehend. The approach emphasizes the similarities and common concepts of the many algebraic structures. Such an approach to learning algebra must necessarily have its formal aspects, but we have tried in this presentation not to make abstraction a goal in itself. We have made great efforts to render the algebraic concepts intuitive and understandable. We have not hesitated to deviate from the form of the text when we feel it advisable for the learner. Often the presenta tions are concrete and may be regarded by some as out of fashion. How to present a particular topic is a subjective one dictated by the author’s estima tion of what the student can best handle at this level. We do strive for consistent unifying terminology and notation. This means abandoning terms peculiar to one branch of algebra when there is available a more general term applicable to all of algebra. We hope that this text is readable by the student as well as the instructor. It is a goal of ours to free the instructor for more creative endeavors than reading the text to the students.

Practical Tools for Designing and Weighting Survey Samples (Statistics for Social and Behavioral Sciences) by Richard Valliant

English | 16 May 2013 | ISBN: 146146448X | 694 Pages | EPUB | 5.13 MB

Survey sampling is fundamentally an applied field. The goal in this book is to put an array of tools at the fingertips of practitioners by explaining approaches long used by survey statisticians, illustrating how existing software can be used to solve survey problems, and developing some specialized software where needed. This book serves at least three audiences: (1) Students seeking a more in-depth understanding of applied sampling either through a second semester-long course or by way of a supplementary reference; (2) Survey statisticians searching for practical guidance on how to apply concepts learned in theoretical or applied sampling courses; and (3) Social scientists and other survey practitioners who desire insight into the statistical thinking and steps taken to design, select, and weight random survey samples.
