Streifzüge durch die Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie by Olle Häggström,A. Ring,C. Ring

By Olle Häggström,A. Ring,C. Ring

Dies ist eine Einführung in die Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie - der Mathematik des Zufalls. In einer mehr oder weniger losen Folge von Kapiteln werden veschiedene Themen angesprochen: Ein Teil behandelt klassische Begriffe, wie Irrfahrten oder die Gesetze der großen Zahlen, während andere Kapitel zeigen, wie die Mathematik in aktuelle Forschungen, z.B. die der Evolutionsbiologie, eingreift. Anschaulich wird der Zusammenhang zur Spieltheorie erläutert.


Der textual content widmet sich ausführlich einigen der am meisten diskutierten Paradoxa der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie, deren Betrachtung zu lehrreichen Einsichten führt. Einen wichtigen Raum nimmt auch die Perkolation und ihre Anwendungen ein, so wird zum Beispiel das so genannte "kleine Welt"-Phänomen mathematisch untersucht.


Das Buch ist in erster Linie als Zusatzlektüre für Vorlesungen zur Stochastik und mathematischen Statistik im Grundstudium an Universität und Hochschule gedacht. Darüber hinaus gibt es Anregungen für Gymnasiallehrer und ihre Schüler. Häggströms Buch leistet für die Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie das, was once Jänichs für die Topologie tut.

Radiative Transfer in the Atmosphere and Ocean (Cambridge by Gary E. Thomas,Knut Stamnes

By Gary E. Thomas,Knut Stamnes

this article offers a starting place in either the theoretical and functional facets of radiative move, for complex scholars of atmospheric, oceanic and environmental sciences. The move of sun and infrared radiation via optically-thick clouds, aerosol layer, and the oceanic combined layer is gifted by using heuristic types of scattering and absorption, and a scientific method of formula and answer of the radiative move equation. difficulties resembling the transmission of ultraviolet radiation throughout the surroundings and ocean, distant sensing, sun heating and infrared cooling tactics, UV organic dose premiums, and greenhouse warming are solved utilizing numerous equipment. This self-contained, systematic remedy will arrange scholars from more than a few disciplines in difficulties in regards to the results of sun and infrared radiation on traditional structures. The hardback variation obtained very good reviews.

Probability Theory: The Logic of Science: Principles and by E. T. Jaynes,G. Larry Bretthorst

By E. T. Jaynes,G. Larry Bretthorst

the traditional principles of likelihood will be interpreted as uniquely legitimate rules in good judgment. during this ebook, E. T. Jaynes dispels the imaginary contrast among 'probability concept' and 'statistical inference', leaving a logical solidarity and straightforwardness, which supplies larger technical strength and adaptability in functions. This booklet is going past the traditional arithmetic of likelihood concept, viewing the topic in a much wider context. New effects are mentioned, besides purposes of likelihood conception to a large choice of difficulties in physics, arithmetic, economics, chemistry and biology. It includes many routines and difficulties, and is appropriate to be used as a textbook on graduate point classes regarding information research. the cloth is geared toward readers who're already accustomed to utilized arithmetic at a sophisticated undergraduate point or greater. The publication could be of curiosity to scientists operating in any sector the place inference from incomplete details is necessary.

Mechanical Properties of Ceramics (Solid Mechanics and Its by Joshua Pelleg

By Joshua Pelleg

This booklet discusses the mechanical homes of ceramics and goals to supply either an exceptional history for undergraduate scholars, in addition to serving as a textual content to deliver working towards engineers modern with the newest advancements during this subject to allow them to use and practice those to their genuine engineering work.

Generally, ceramics are made through moistening a mix of clays, casting it into wanted shapes after which firing it to a extreme temperature, a approach referred to as 'vitrification'. The particularly past due improvement of metallurgy was once contingent at the availability of ceramics and the information to mildew them into the perfect kinds. as a result features of ceramics, they provide nice benefits over metals in particular purposes within which hardness, put on resistance and chemical balance at excessive temperatures are crucial. truly, smooth ceramics production has come some distance from the early clay-processing fabrication process, and the final 20 years have noticeable the improvement of subtle suggestions to provide a wide number of ceramic material.

The chapters of this quantity are ordered to aid scholars with their laboratory experiments and consultant their observations in parallel with lectures in response to the present textual content. hence, the 1st bankruptcy is dedicated to mechanical testing.  A bankruptcy of ductile and superplastic ceramic is additional to stress their position in smooth ceramics (chapter 2). those are by means of the theoretical foundation of the topic. numerous features of the mechanical houses are mentioned within the following chapters, between them, strengthening mechanisms, time established and cyclic deformation of ceramics. Many useful illustrations are supplied representing a variety of observations encountered in real ceramic-structures of fairly technical value. A accomplished record of references on the finish of every bankruptcy is integrated during this textbook to supply a wide foundation for additional learning the subject. The paintings additionally features a targeted bankruptcy on a subject no longer mentioned in different textbooks on ceramics bearing on nanosized ceramics.

This paintings may also be valuable as a reference for fabrics scientists, not just to those that focus on ceramics.
