Reservoir Modelling offers a comprehensive guide to the procedures and workflow for building a 3D model. Designed to be practical, the principles outlined can be applied to any modelling project regardless of the software used. The author  a noted practitioner in the field  captures the heterogeneity due to structure, stratigraphy and sedimentology that has an impact on flow in the reservoir.
This essential guide follows a general workflow from data QC and project management, structural modelling, facies and property modelling to upscaling and the requirements for dynamic modelling. The author discusses structural elements of a model and reviews both seismic interpretation and depth conversion, which are known to contribute most to volumetric uncertainty and shows how largescale stratigraphic relationships are integrated into the reservoir framework. The text puts the focus on geostatistical modelling of facies and heterogeneities that constrain the distribution of reservoir properties including porosity, permeability and water saturation. In addition, the author discusses the role of uncertainty analysis in the static model and its impact on volumetric estimation. The text also addresses some typical approaches to modelling specific reservoirs through a mix of case studies and illustrative examples and:
* Offers a practical guide to the use of data to build a successful reservoir model
* Draws on the latest advances in 3D modelling software
* Reviews facies modelling, the different methods and the need for understanding the geological interpretation of cores and logs
* Presents information on upscaling both the structure and the properties of a finescale geological model for dynamic simulation
* Stresses the importance of an interdisciplinary teambased approach

Optimization is an inherent human tendency that gained new life after the advent of calculus; now, as the world grows increasingly reliant on complex systems, optimization has become both more important and more challenging than ever before. Engineering Optimization provides a practicallyfocused introduction to modern engineering optimization best practices, covering fundamental analytical and numerical techniques throughout each stage of the optimization process.
Although essential algorithms are explained in detail, the focus lies more in the human function: how to create an appropriate objective function, choose decision variables, identify and incorporate constraints, define convergence, and other critical issues that define the success or failure of an optimization project.
Examples, exercises, and homework throughout reinforce the author's "do, not study" approach to learning, underscoring the applicationoriented discussion that provides a deep, generic understanding of the optimization process that can be applied to any field.
Providing excellent reference for students or professionals, Engineering Optimization:
* Describes and develops a variety of algorithms, including gradient based (such as Newton's, and LevenbergMarquardt), direct search (such as HookeJeeves, Leapfrogging, and Particle Swarm), along with surrogate functions for surface characterization
* Provides guidance on optimizer choice by application, and explains how to determine appropriate optimizer parameter values
* Details current best practices for critical stages of specifying an optimization procedure, including decision variables, defining constraints, and relationship modeling
* Provides access to software and Visual Basic macros for Excel on the companion website, along with solutions to examples presented in the book
Clear explanations, explicit equation derivations, and practical examples make this book ideal for use as part of a class or selfstudy, assuming a basic understanding of statistics, calculus, computer programming, and engineering models. Anyone seeking best practices for "making the best choices" will find value in this introductory resource. <font color=#0000dd>[776 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781118936337">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

Safety principles are paramount to addressing structured handling of safety concerns in all technological systems. This handbook captures and discusses the multitude of safety principles in a practical and applicable manner. It is organized by five overarching categories of safety principles: Safety Reserves; Information and Control; Demonstrability; Optimization; and Organizational Principles and Practices. With a focus on the structured treatment of a large number of safety principles relevant to all related fields, each chapter defines the principle in question and discusses its application as well as how it relates to other principles and terms. This treatment includes the history, the underlying theory, and the limitations and criticism of the principle. Several chapters also problematize and critically discuss the very concept of a safety principle. The book treats issues such as: What are safety principles and what roles do they have? What kinds of safety principles are there? When, if ever, should rules and principles be disobeyed? How do safety principles relate to the law; what is the status of principles in different domains? The book also features:
* Insights from leading international experts on safety and reliability
* Realworld applications and case studies including systems usability, verification and validation, human reliability, and safety barriers
* Different taxonomies for how safety principles are categorized
* Breakthroughs in safety and risk science that can significantly change, improve, and inform important practical decisions
* A structured treatment of safety principles relevant to numerous disciplines and application areas in industry and other sectors of society
* Comprehensive and practical coverage of the multitude of safety principles including maintenance optimization, substitution, safety automation, risk communication, precautionary approaches, nonquantitative safety analysis, safety culture, and many others
The Handbook of Safety Principles is an ideal reference and resource for professionals engaged in risk and safety analysis and research. This book is also appropriate as a graduate and PhDlevel textbook for courses in risk and safety analysis, reliability, safety engineering, and risk management offered within mathematics, operations research, and engineering departments.

This book introduces readers to point estimation, confidence intervals, and statistical tests. Based on the general theory of linear models, it provides an indepth overview of the following: analysis of variance (ANOVA) for models with fixed, random, and mixed effects; regression analysis is also first presented for linear models with fixed, random, and mixed effects before being expanded to nonlinear models; statistical multidecision problems like statistical selection procedures (Bechhofer and Gupta) and sequential tests; and design of experiments from a mathematicalstatistical point of view. Most analysis methods have been supplemented by formulae for minimal sample sizes. The chapters also contain exercises with hints for solutions.
Translated from the successful German text, Mathematical Statistics requires knowledge of probability theory (combinatorics, probability distributions, functions and sequences of random variables), which is typically taught in the earlier semesters of scientific and mathematical study courses. It teaches readers all about statistical analysis and covers the design of experiments. The book also describes optimal allocation in the chapters on regression analysis. Additionally, it features a chapter devoted solely to experimental designs.
* Classroomtested with exercises included
* Practiceoriented (taken from daytoday statistical work of the authors)
* Includes further studies including design of experiments and sample sizing
* Presents and uses IBM SPSS Statistics 24 for practical calculations of data
Mathematical Statistics is a recommended text for advanced students and practitioners of math, probability, and statistics. <font color=#0000dd>[688 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119385288">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

Mathematicians have always sought to find analytical solutions to the equations encountered in the different sciences of the engineer (mechanics, physics, biology, etc.). These equations are sometimes complicated and much effort is required to simplify them. In the middle of the 20th century, the arrival of the first computers gave birth to new methods of resolution that will be described by numerical methods. They allow solving numerically as precisely as possible the equations encountered (resulting from the modeling of course) and to approach the solution of the problems posed. The approximate solution is usually computed on a computer by means of a suitable algorithm.
The objective of this book is to introduce and study the basic numerical methods and those advanced to be able to do scientific computation. The latter refers to the implementation of approaches adapted to the treatment of a scientific problem arising from physics (meteorology, pollution, etc.) or engineering (structural mechanics, fluid mechanics, signal processing, etc.) . <font color=#0000dd>[238 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781786302359">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

The M&A Formula brings together decades of research and case studies from recognised leaders into a model that anybody can use to grow their business using M&A, no matter large or small. Whether you see it as avoiding the painful failure that currently runs at a Global average of over 50%, or stacking the cards in your favour, business modeldriven M&A will definitely help you win by either seizing opportunities from your competition, or failing fast  before it really hurts you.
M&As fail because the thinking surrounding them fails the rigour of scientific examination; by observing the results of conventional processes and positions, the need for new direction becomes apparent. This book presents a new set of tactics based on data from highprofile M&As, constructing a modern map of practical and business modeldriven tactics that succeed in the real world. Case studies of successful deals illustrate ontheground implementation of a new M&A model, and tactics formulated by M&A specialists equip you with the wisdom to avoid common pitfalls and costly errors.
The M&A sector is continuing to grow, and the trend shows no sign of slowing. Business leaders need a robust, business modeldriven M&A strategy for handling these highstakes transactions, but the usual methods are no longer cutting it. This book provides a new way forward for businesses seeking smart M&A tactics, helping them to:
* Rethink conventional M&A wisdom in light of recent failures.
* Adopt new databacked tactics that help ensure success.
* Avoid litigation risk and the high cost of failures.
* Examine practical models and illustrative highprofile case studies.
M&A failures have reached global epidemic proportions, with economic impacts to scale. Businesses around the world are in dire need of direction, and as the stakes grow, so do the potential costs of mistakes. The M&A Formula provides sound guidance and a practical new model for successful M&As in the new economy. <font color=#0000dd>[256 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119397960">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

A unified introduction to linear algebra that reinforces and emphasizes a conceptual and handson understanding of the essential ideas. Promoting the development of intuition rather than the simple application of methods, this book successfully helps readers to understand not only how to implement a technique, but why its use is important. In addition, the author outlines an analytical, algebraic, and geometric discussion of the provided definitions, theorems, and proofs. For each concept, an abstract foundation is presented together with its computational output, and this parallel structure clearly and immediately illustrates the relationship between the theory and its appropriate applications. The Fourth Edition features new coverage on orthogonal wavelets, which is a cutting edge application of linear algebra that has only become prominent within the last 10 years.
The Student Solutions Manual contains solutions to the odd numbered problems and is available to further aid in reader comprehension, and an Instructor's Solutions Manual (inclusive of suggested syllabi) is available via written request to the Publisher. Both the Student and Instructor Manuals also have been enhanced with further discussions of the applications sections, which is ideal for readers who wish to obtain a deeper knowledge than that provided by pure algorithmic approaches. A related website houses the referenced MATLAB code as well as fullcolor images of select figures. <font color=#0000dd>[632 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781118911884">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

An Introduction to Proof through Real Analysis

<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119314721"><img src="http://www.wileyvch.de/books/rsssrv/var/www/html/books/rss/cover_80/9781119314721.jpg" border="0" align="top"> </a></td> <td valign="top"><img src="http://www.wileyvch.de/books/rss/rsstrack.gif?Section=MA00" width="1" height="1" border="0" align="top"> </td> <td valign="top">An engaging and accessible introduction to mathematical proof incorporating ideas from real analysis
A mathematical proof is an inferential argument for a mathematical statement. Since the time of the ancient Greek mathematicians, the proof has been a cornerstone of the science of mathematics. The goal of this book is to help students learn to follow and understand the function and structure of mathematical proof and to produce proofs of their own.
An Introduction to Proof through Real Analysis is based on course material developed and refined over thirty years by Professor Daniel J. Madden and was designed to function as a complete text for both first proofs and first analysis courses. Written in an engaging and accessible narrative style, this book systematically covers the basic techniques of proof writing, beginning with real numbers and progressing to logic, set theory, topology, and continuity. The book proceeds from natural numbers to rational numbers in a familiar way, and justifies the need for a rigorous definition of real numbers. The mathematical climax of the story it tells is the Intermediate Value Theorem, which justifies the notion that the real numbers are sufficient for solving all geometric problems.
* Concentrates solely on designing proofs by placing instruction on proof writing on top of discussions of specific mathematical subjects
* Departs from traditional guides to proofs by incorporating elements of both real analysis and algebraic representation
* Written in an engaging narrative style to tell the story of proof and its meaning, function, and construction
* Uses a particular mathematical idea as the focus of each type of proof presented
* Developed from material that has been classtested and finetuned over thirty years in university introductory courses
An Introduction to Proof through Real Analysis is the ideal introductory text to proofs for second and thirdyear undergraduate mathematics students, especially those who have completed a calculus sequence, students learning real analysis for the first time, and those learning proofs for the first time.
Daniel J. Madden, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at The University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona, USA. He has taught a junior level course introducing students to the idea of a rigorous proof based on real analysis almost every semester since 1990. Dr. Madden is the winner of the 2015 Southwest Section of the Mathematical Association of America Distinguished Teacher Award.

This unique guide to Markov chains approaches the subject along the four convergent lines of mathematics, implementation, simulation, and experimentation. It introduces readers to the art of stochastic modeling, shows how to design computer implementations, and provides extensive worked examples with case studies.
Markov Chains: From Theory to Implementation and Experimentation begins with a general introduction to the history of probability theory in which the author uses quantifiable examples to illustrate how probability theory arrived at the concept of discretetime and the Markov model from experiments involving independent variables. An introduction to simple stochastic matrices and transition probabilities is followed by a simulation of a twostate Markov chain. The notion of steady state is explored in connection with the longrun distribution behavior of the Markov chain. Predictions based on Markov chains with more than two states are examined, followed by a discussion of the notion of absorbing Markov chains. Also covered in detail are topics relating to the average time spent in a state, various chain configurations, and nstate Markov chain simulations used for verifying experiments involving various diagram configurations.
* Fascinating historical notes shed light on the key ideas that led to the development of the Markov model and its variants
* Various configurations of Markov Chains and their limitations are explored at length
* Numerous examplesfrom basic to complexare presented in a comparative manner using a variety of color graphics
* All algorithms presented can be analyzed in either Visual Basic, Java Script, or PHP
* Designed to be useful to professional statisticians as well as readers without extensive knowledge of probability theory
Covering both the theory underlying the Markov model and an array of Markov chain implementations, within a common conceptual framework, Markov Chains: From Theory to Implementation and Experimentation is a stimulating introduction to and a valuable reference for those wishing to deepen their understanding of this extremely valuable statistical tool.

The account of the fundamental interactions between the dislocations and other microscopic crystal defects is based on the use of smooth field quantities and powerful tools from the mathematical theory of partial differential equations. The resulting theory is able to describe the emergence of dislocation microstructures and their evolution along complex loading paths. Scale transitions are performed between the properties of the dislocation ensembles and the mechanical behavior of the body.
Several variants of this overall scheme are examined which focus on dislocation cores, electromechanical interactions of dislocations with electric charges in dielectric materials, the intermittency and scaleinvariance of dislocation activity, graintograin interactions in polycrystals, size effects on mechanical behavior and path dependence of strain hardening. <font color=#0000dd>[244 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781848213753">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

Existing studies on this topic have generally adopted a purely accountbased or strategyoriented approach to address this issue. However, this book draws upon a number of welldefined theoretical and empirical backgrounds and methodologies.
Since the 1980s, many changes have occurred and companies have increasingly focused their strategies on value creation. Consequently, new strategic directions have emerged, especially for managerial accounting. Management accounting and alignment with strategy could thus improve performance.
This book encourages further thought and reflection on these issues which should be pursued in the future as firms face new challenges associated with the acceleration of digital transformation. <font color=#0000dd>[184 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781848219762">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

M&A Disputes takes you inside the dispute resolution process to help you put together the many "moving parts" necessary to obtain a successful outcome. With deep insight from experts in the fieldincluding valuable advice from the arbitrator's perspectivethis book guides you through the entire process to explore the variables at work. The high volume of M&A transactions makes postclosing price adjustment provisions and accounting arbitrations a critical part of doing business. Yet, the field is opaque to nonpractitioners and important issues can be easily misunderstood without specific knowledge and experience. A resulting award can make or break a transaction; an intimate understanding of the process's inner working can help you plan your position to the greatest advantage. This book explores the many factors that that contribute to a successful resolution across the entire transaction life cycle from contract negotiation through the dispute phase including due diligence, determination of the target net working capital, conception and closing of the purchase agreement, postclosing negotiation and dispute resolution, the impact of accounting practices, guidance, and documentation as well as relevant auditing concepts, and various facts and circumstances surrounding the target business and the transaction that need to be considered.
M&A volume remains high and continues to result in large numbers of current and future postclosing M&A disputes. Clients rely on their attorneys and advisers to guide them through the process and counsel them toward a positive outcome. Those professionals will find that M&A accounting arbitrations carry a range of distinctions that require a specialized knowledge base to navigate correctly. This book provides realworld guidance from experts in the field, with invaluable insight for every stage of the process.
* Walk through the entire dispute resolution process from arbitrator selection through final award
* Understand how M&A agreement provisions impact the awarded amount as well as the options available to limit the scope of potential disputes and the "gaming" of the postclosing process by the counterparty
* Understand the nature of accounting estimates and guidance, their interaction with accounting arbitrations, and how to synthesize facts, circumstances, and GAAP into a persuasive argument to present to the accounting arbitrator
* Get situationspecific advice for different types of transactions
* Learn practitioner "dos" and "don'ts" from the arbitrator's perspective
M&A Disputes provides transaction parties and their representatives an inside view at the transaction and commonly disputed items through the eyes of the arbitrator to provide them with uniquely valuable insight.
In addition to being an invaluable tool for practitioners appearing before an accounting arbitrator, M&A Disputes also provides advice to wouldbe and experienced arbitrators alike to successfully resolve disputes that can be significant and complex. <font color=#0000dd>[384 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119331919">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

In contrast to the rich statistical literature, the regression methods actually employed in lifetime data analysis are limited, particularly in the biomedical field where D. R. Cox's famous semiparametric proportional hazards model predominates. Practitioners should become familiar with more flexible models. The first hitting time regression models (or threshold regression) presented here represent observed events as the outcome of an underlying stochastic process. One example is death occurring when the patient's health status falls to zero, but the idea has wide applicability  in biology, engineering, banking and finance, and elsewhere. The central topic is the model based on an underlying Wiener process, leading to lifetimes following the inverse Gaussian distribution. Introducing timevarying covariates and many other extensions are considered. Various applications are presented in detail. <font color=#0000dd>[200 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781848218895">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

The concept of the likelihood ratio of a set of observations under different hypotheses is applied for comparison among various models.
In shortterm models, known by the term ETAS, the occurrence space and time rate density of earthquakes is modeled as the sum of two terms, one representing the independent or spontaneous events, and the other representing the activity triggered by previous earthquakes. Examples of the application of such algorithms in real cases are also reported.
Dealing with longterm recurrence models, renewal timedependent models, implying a pseudoperiodicity of earthquake occurrence, are compared with the simple timeindependent Poisson model, in which every event occurs regardless of what has occurred in the past.

Spline Collocation Methods for Partial Differential Equations combines the collocation analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs) with the method of lines (MOL) in order to simplify the solution process. Using a series of example applications, the author delineates the main features of the approach in detail, including an established mathematical framework. The book also clearly demonstrates that spline collocation can offer a comprehensive method for numerical integration of PDEs when it is used with the MOL in which spatial (boundary value) derivatives are approximated with splines, including the boundary conditions.
R, an opensource scientific programming system, is used throughout for programming the PDEs and numerical algorithms, and each section of code is clearly explained. As a result, readers gain a complete picture of the model and its computer implementation without having to fill in the details of the numerical analysis, algorithms, or programming. The presentation is not heavily mathematical, and in place of theorems and proofs, detailed example applications are provided.
Appropriate for scientists, engineers, and applied mathematicians, Spline Collocation Methods for Partial Differential Equations:
* Introduces numerical methods by first presenting basic examples followed by more complicated applications
* Employs R to illustrate accurate and efficient solutions of the PDE models
* Presents spline collocation as a comprehensive approach to the numerical integration of PDEs and an effective alternative to other, well established methods
* Discusses how to reproduce and extend the presented numerical solutions
* Identifies the use of selected algorithms, such as the solution of nonlinear equations and banded or sparse matrix processing
* Features a companion website that provides the related R routines
Spline Collocation Methods for Partial Differential Equations is a valuable reference and/or selfstudy guide for academics, researchers, and practitioners in applied mathematics and engineering, as well as for advanced undergraduates and graduatelevel students. <font color=#0000dd>[576 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119301035">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

This book fills a gap in the literature by providing a theoretical framework for integrating techniques from adaptive dynamic programming (ADP) and modern nonlinear control to address datadriven optimal control design challenges arising from both parametric and dynamic uncertainties.
Traditional modelbased approaches leave much to be desired when addressing the challenges posed by the everincreasing complexity of realworld engineering systems. An alternative which has received much interest in recent years are biologicallyinspired approaches, primarily RADP. Despite their growing popularity worldwide, until now books on ADP have focused nearly exclusively on analysis and design, with scant consideration given to how it can be applied to address robustness issues, a new challenge arising from dynamic uncertainties encountered in common engineering problems.
Robust Adaptive Dynamic Programming zeros in on the practical concerns of engineers. The authors develop RADP theory from linear systems to partiallylinear, largescale, and completely nonlinear systems. They provide indepth coverage of stateoftheart applications in power systems, supplemented with numerous realworld examples implemented in MATLAB. They also explore fascinating reverse engineering topics, such how ADP theory can be applied to the study of the human brain and cognition. In addition, the book:
* Covers the latest developments in RADP theory and applications for solving a range of systems' complexity problems
* Explores multiple realworld implementations in power systems with illustrative examples backed up by reusable MATLAB code and Simulink block sets
* Provides an overview of nonlinear control, machine learning, and dynamic control
* Features discussions of novel applications for RADP theory, including an entire chapter on how it can be used as a computational mechanism of human movement control
Robust Adaptive Dynamic Programming is both a valuable working resource and an intriguing exploration of contemporary ADP theory and applications for practicing engineers and advanced students in systems theory, control engineering, computer science, and applied mathematics. <font color=#0000dd>[216 Pages, Hardcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781119132646">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>

In creating this book, the authors' intent was to provide graduate students, researchers, physicists, and engineers with a reasonable introduction to summability theory. Over the course of nine chapters, the authors cover all of the fundamental concepts and equations informing summability theory and its applications, as well as some of its lesser known aspects. Following a brief introduction to the history of summability theory, general matrix methods are introduced, and the SilvermanToeplitz theorem on regular matrices is discussed. A variety of special summability methods, including the Nörlund method, the Weighted Mean method, the Abel method, and the (C, 1)  method are next examined. An entire chapter is devoted to a discussion of some elementary Tauberian theorems involving certain summability methods. Following this are chapters devoted to matrix transforms of summability and absolute summability domains of reversible and normal methods; the notion of a perfect matrix method; matrix transforms of summability and absolute summability domains of the Cesàro and Riesz methods; convergence and the boundedness of sequences with speed; and convergence, boundedness, and summability with speed.
* Discusses results on matrix transforms of several matrix methods
* The only Englishlanguage textbook describing the notions of convergence, boundedness, and summability with speed, as well as their applications in approximation theory
* Compares the approximation orders of Fourier expansions in Banach spaces by different matrix methods
* Matrix transforms of summability domains of regular perfect matrix methods are examined
* Each chapter contains several solved examples and endofchapter exercises, including hints for solutions
An Introductory Course in Summability Theory is the ideal first text in summability theory for graduate students, especially those having a good grasp of real and complex analysis. It is also a valuable reference for mathematics researchers and for physicists and engineers who work with Fourier series, Fourier transforms, or analytic continuation.

The chief advantage of stochastic growth models over deterministic models is that they combine both deterministic and stochastic elements of dynamic behaviors, such as weather, natural disasters, market fluctuations, and epidemics. This makes stochastic modeling a powerful tool in the hands of practitioners in fields for which population growth is a critical determinant of outcomes.
However, the background requirements for studying SDEs can be daunting for those who lack the rigorous course of study received by math majors. Designed to be accessible to readers who have had only a few courses in calculus and statistics, this book offers a comprehensive review of the mathematical essentials needed to understand and apply stochastic growth models. In addition, the book describes deterministic and stochastic applications of population growth models including logistic, generalized logistic, Gompertz, negative exponential, and linear.
Ideal for students and professionals in an array of fields including economics, population studies, environmental sciences, epidemiology, engineering, finance, and the biological sciences, Stochastic Differential Equations: An Introduction with Applications in Population Dynamics Modeling:
* Provides precise definitions of many important terms and concepts and provides many solved example problems
* Highlights the interpretation of results and does not rely on a theoremproof approach
* Features comprehensive chapters addressing any background deficiencies readers may have and offers a comprehensive review for those who need a mathematics refresher
* Emphasizes solution techniques for SDEs and their practical application to the development of stochastic population models
An indispensable resource for students and practitioners with limited exposure to mathematics and statistics, Stochastic Differential Equations: An Introduction with Applications in Population Dynamics Modeling is an excellent fit for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, as well as practitioners who need a gentle introduction to SDEs.

The authors provide examples of chisquared tests for various distributions widely used in practice, and also consider chisquared tests for the parametric proportional hazards model and accelerated failure time model, which are widely used in reliability and survival analysis. Particular attention is paid to the choice of grouping intervals and simulations.
This book covers recent innovations in the field as well as important results previously only published in Russian. Chisquared tests are compared with other goodnessoffit tests (such as the Cramervon MisesSmirnov, AndersonDarling and Zhang tests) in terms of power when testing close competing hypotheses. <font color=#0000dd>[158 Pages, Softcover]</font><br><br><a href="http://www.wileyvch.de/publish/en/books/ISBN9781786300003">Read More...</a></td></tr></table><br><br>
