The Coldest Coast

The Coldest Coast: The 1873 Leigh Smith Expedition to Svalbard in the Diaries and Photographs of Herbert Chermside by P. J. Capelotti
English | PDF | 2021 | 315 Pages | ISBN : 3030678792 | 10.7 MB

This book describes the 1873 voyage of the British explorer Benjamin Leigh Smith, based on the diaries and photographs of Lieutenant Herbert C. Chermside, who joined the expedition of the seas around Svalbard. Chermside’s photographs, long believed lost, have recently been uncovered in Sweden and are being curated there by the Grenna Museum. The three unpublished diaries of Herbert Chermside were lent to the Scott Polar Research Institute in 1939 by Mrs. Benjamin Leigh Smith. For the first time, Chermside’s diaries are published in their entirety, with the original photographs shown alongside modern images of the same locations. This includes the first photographic record of the north coast of Svalbard, images that are today being used as comparative data for the study of climate change in the archipelago.

Statistical Physics

Statistical Physics by A. M. Guénault
English | PDF | 1988 | 197 Pages | ISBN : 0415002591 | 13.3 MB

Statistical physics is not a difficult subject, and I trust that this will not be found a difficult book. It contains much that a number of generations of Lancaster students have studied with me, as part of their physics honours degree work. The lecture course was of twenty hours duration, and I have added comparatively little to the lecture syllabus. A pre­ requisite is that the reader should have a working knowledge of basic thermal physics (i.e. the laws of thermodynamics and their application to simple substances). The book Thermal Physics by Colin Finn in this series forms an ideal introduc tion.

Introduction to Robust and Quasi-Robust Statistical Methods

Introduction to Robust and Quasi-Robust Statistical Methods by William J. J. Rey
English | PDF | 1983 | 247 Pages | ISBN : 3540128662 | 16.9 MB

The term "robustness" does not lend itself to a clear-cut statistical definition. It seems to have been introduced by G. E. P. Box in 1953 to cover a rather vague concept described in the following way by Kendall and Buckland (1981). Their dictionary states:

Introduction to Statistical Inference

Introduction to Statistical Inference by Jack Carl Kiefer
English | PDF | 1987 | 342 Pages | ISBN : 1461395801 | 69.2 MB

This book is based upon lecture notes developed by Jack Kiefer for a course in statistical inference he taught at Cornell University. The notes were distributed to the class in lieu of a textbook, and the problems were used for homework assignments. Relying only on modest prerequisites of probability theory and cal­ culus, Kiefer's approach to a first course in statistics is to present the central ideas of the modem mathematical theory with a minimum of fuss and formality.

Limit Theorems and Some Applications in Statistical Physics

Limit Theorems and Some Applications in Statistical Physics by Boris Nahapetian
English | PDF | 1991 | 246 Pages | ISBN : 3322934330 | 10.7 MB

During the recent years the interest in limit theorems for dependent random variables has considerably grown being stimulated both by requirements of probability theory and by many applied disciplines. A special place among such disciplines belongs to statistical physics whose mathematical apparatus for a long time has been developing regardless the probability theory. However recently a process of mutual understanding between the specialists of this two fields started to develop. This resulted in a burst of activity for the benefit of both the subjects. For instance, the concept of Gibbs random field which has originated in statistical physics became a powerful stimulus for development of the theory of random fields while the Gibbsian fields themselves turned out to be excellent object for application of many general probabilistic results.

Matrix Tricks for Linear Statistical Models: Our Personal Top Twenty

Matrix Tricks for Linear Statistical Models: Our Personal Top Twenty

Matrix Tricks for Linear Statistical Models: Our Personal Top Twenty by Simo Puntanen
English | PDF | 2011 | 504 Pages | ISBN : 364210472X | 135.8 MB

In teaching linear statistical models to first-year graduate students or to final-year undergraduate students there is no way to proceed smoothly without matrices and related concepts of linear algebra; their use is really essential. Our experience is that making some particular matrix tricks very familiar to students can substantially increase their insight into linear statistical models (and also multivariate statistical analysis). In matrix algebra, there are handy, sometimes even very simple “tricks” which simplify and clarify the treatment of a problem—both for the student and for the professor. Of course, the concept of a trick is not uniquely defined—by a trick we simply mean here a useful important handy result.

Asymptotic Methods in Statistical Decision Theory

Asymptotic Methods in Statistical Decision Theory

Asymptotic Methods in Statistical Decision Theory by Lucien Le Cam
English | PDF | 1986 | 767 Pages | ISBN : 0387963073 | 68.3 MB

This book grew out of lectures delivered at the University of California, Berkeley, over many years. The subject is a part of asymptotics in statistics, organized around a few central ideas. The presentation proceeds from the general to the particular since this seemed the best way to emphasize the basic concepts. The reader is expected to have been exposed to statistical thinking and methodology, as expounded for instance in the book by H. Cramer [1946] or the more recent text by P. Bickel and K. Doksum [1977]. Another pos­ sibility, closer to the present in spirit, is Ferguson [1967].

The Statistical Analysis of Spatial Pattern

The Statistical Analysis of Spatial Pattern

The Statistical Analysis of Spatial Pattern by M. S. Bartlett
English | PDF | 1975 | 98 Pages | ISBN : 9400957572 | 5.5 MB

In a contribution (Bartlett, 1971 a) to the Symposium on Statistical Ecology at Yale in 1969, I noted in my introductory remarks that that paper was not intended to be in any way a review of statistical techniques for analysing spatial patterns. My contribution to a conference at Sheffield in 1973 aimed, at least in part, to supply such a review and forms the basis of this monograph; but in these prefatory remarks I must still make clear what I decided to discuss, and what I have omitted. Broadly speaking, the coverage is that included in seminars and lectures I have given on this theme since 1969. We may divide problems of spatial pattern (in contrast with complete random chaos) into (i) detecting departures from randomness, Oi) analysing such departures when detected, for example, in relation to some stochastic model and (iii) special problems which require separate consideration; for example, sophisticated problems of pattern recognition in specific fields, such as the computer reading of handwriting or recognition of chromosomes.
