• 25 Recipes for Getting Started with R

R is a powerful tool for statistics and graphics, but getting started with this language can be frustrating. This short, concise book provides beginners with a selection of how-to recipes to solve simple problems with R. Each solution gives you just what you need to know to use R for basic statistics, graphics, and regression.

• Biology, Sociology, Geology by Computational Physicists

Physicists pretend not only to know everything, but also to know everything bet- ter. This applies in particular to computational statistical physicists like US. Thus many of our colleagues have applied their computer simulation techniques to ﬁelds outside of physics, and have published sometimes in biological, economic or sociological journals, and publication ﬂow in the opposite direction has also started.

• Basic data analysis and more - a guided tour using python

n these lecture notes, a selection of frequently required statistical tools will be introduced and illustrated. They allow to post-process data that stem from, e.g., large-scale numerical simulations. From a point of view of data analysis, the concepts and techniques introduced here are of general interest and are, at best, employed by computational aid. Consequently, an exemplary implementation of the presented techniques using the Python programming language is provided.

• Monte Carlo Methods and Models in Finance and Insurance

Monte Carlo methods are ubiquitous in applications in the finance and insurance industry. They are often the only accessible tool for financial engineers and actuaries when it comes to complicated price or risk computations, in particular for those that are based on many underlyings. However, as they tend to be slow, it is very important to have a big tool box for speeding them up or – equivalently – for increasing their accuracy. Further, recent years have seen a lot of developments in Monte Carlo methods with a high potential for success in applications.

• Tools for Computational Finance

Basic principles underlying the transactions of financial markets are tied to probability and statistics. Accordingly it is natural that books devoted to mathematical finance are dominated by stochastic methods. Only in recent years, spurred by the enormous economical success of financial derivatives, a need for sophisticated computational technology has developed. For example, to price an American put, quantitative analysts have asked for the numerical solution of a free-boundary partial differential equation.

• COMPUTATIONAL FINANCE

It was in late 1995 to early 1996 (shortly after the birth of his first daughter Claire) that the author first began to read the currently available finance books in order to write C/Cþþ financial software. However, apart fromthe book Options Futures and Other Derivatives by John Hull, he found very little information of practical help and had to trawl through the original journal articles in the Bodleian library for more information. Even then much information on how to implement and test various models was not included.

• Applied and Numerical Harmonic Analysis: Frames And Bases An Introductory Course

Based on a streamlined presentation of the author’s successful work, An Introduction to Frames and Riesz Bases, this book develops frame theory as part of a dialogue between mathematicians and engineers. Newly added sections on applications will help mathematically oriented readers to see where frames are used in practice and engineers to discover the mathematical background for applications in their field. The book presents basic results in an accessible way and includes extensive exercises.

• Building Successful Virtual Teams

In 1978, I enrolled in a bachelor of commerce degree program at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec. Upon graduation, and with little business experience, I decided to pursue a master’s degree in business administration, specializing in information systems and statistics. I remember the asynchronous terminals, the computer cards, and getting very interested and curious about the Argyris theory. His theory, as discussed in Section 3.2, focuses on organizational and action learning.

• So You Want to Learn to Program?

Learn to program a computer without the jargon and complexity of many programming books. Suitable for anybody age 10 to 100+ who wants to learn and is ready to experiment. This book engages through media (sound, color, shapes, and text to speech) and then introduces the concepts of structured programming (loops, conditions, variables...), using BASIC-256. You will learn to program as you make animations, games, and fun applications. Full source code to example programs are given to start experimentation and self exploration....

• GCE Edexcel GCE in Mathematics Mathematical Formulae and Statistical Tables

While such experience in high school may not be directly relevant to K-4, it should nevertheless give one pause about the supposed beneﬁcial eﬀects of calculators in general. No one denies that calculators and computers are essential in certain aspects of mathematical instruction, but in the absence of any long-range scientiﬁc study of their impact on students, their use in the classroom needs to be accompanied by a great deal of circumspection. Such circumspection seems not to have been exercised thus far.
