Pawlowsky-Glahn Vera Compositional Data Analysis. Theory and Applications

It is difficult to imagine that the statistical analysis of compositional data has been a major issue of concern for more than 100 years. It is even more difficult to realize that so many statisticians and users of statistics are unaware of the particular problems affecting compositional data, as well as their solutions. The issue of ``spurious correlation'', as the situation was phrased by Karl Pearson back in 1897, affects all data that measures parts of some whole, such as percentages, proportions, ppm and ppb. Such measurements are present in all fields of science, ranging from geology, biology, environmental sciences, forensic sciences, medicine and hydrology. This book presents the history and development of compositional data analysis along with Aitchison's log-ratio approach. Compositional Data Analysis describes the state of the art both in theoretical fields as well as applications in the different fields of science. Key Features: Reflects the state-of-the-art in compositional data analysis. Gives an overview of the historical development of compositional data analysis, as well as basic concepts and procedures. Looks at advances in algebra and calculus on the simplex. Presents applications in different fields of science, including, genomics, ecology, biology, geochemistry, planetology, chemistry and economics. Explores connections to correspondence analysis and the Dirichlet distribution. Presents a summary of three available software packages for compositional data analysis. Supported by an accompanying website featuring R code. Applied scientists working on compositional data analysis in any field of science, both in academia and professionals will benefit from this book, along with graduate students in any field of science working with compositional data.

Strain Driven Self Assembly Strain Driven Self Assembly Новинка

Strain Driven Self Assembly

An appealing approach to manufacturing future generation nanoscale devices envisioned for electronic, magnetic and photonic applications is to exploit the natural tendency of small material clusters to self-organize into well-defined patterns. While strain- driven self-assembly is widely viewed as a promising technique for patterning at the nanoscale, to follow this approach and create structures in a desired manner, a reliable means to engineer the characteristic size and shapes that the clusters adopt during self- assembly is essential. Motivated by a significant potential technological impact, a systematic elucidation of how long-range elastic interactions couple with surface and bulk thermodynamics and kinetics to control shape, size and compositional patterns assumes a paramount importance. The work presented here describes a detailed analysis of evolution of morphological and compositional patterns in various strain-driven self-assembled systems. The examples include alloy quantum dots and 2D patterns such as surface stress domains and epitaxial nanowires.

Dangerous Negotiations Dangerous Negotiations Новинка

Dangerous Negotiations

Violent screen females appear as a ubiquitous, still elusive, staple of contemporary Hollywood cinema, a genre-transcending trope whose full interpretive potential is yet to be explored. The cinematic examples of violent women and consequently the types of violence drawn upon in Dangerous Negotiations are highly diverse, both in terms of the characters’ motives – which can be revenge, self-defense as well as rage or greed – and their actions’ intensity, with the violent acts of the serial-queen melodramas’ heroines, for instance, ranking on the lower end of a scale of fierceness and brutality from today’s perspective. Taking such a kaleidoscopic approach towards female screen violence, Dangerous Negotiations investigates the interpretative practices which feminist scholars have deployed in the assessment of a plethora of violent female characters in contemporary Hollywood cinema and thereby fleshes out genre-transcending reading patterns.

Rational Choice Theory Rational Choice Theory Новинка

Rational Choice Theory

Few approaches in political science have generated so much controversy as rational choice theory. Some claim that the approach has made political science scientific. Its critics argue that it involves unrealistic assumptions about individual behaviour. While its tenets and benefits remain the subject of heated debate, rational choice theory is now established as a core approach in political science and one that is vital for contemporary students of the discipline to understand. With an impressive degree of clarity, the book introduces the philosophical foundations, the methodology and the key issues of rational choice theory. It shows how the approach has been constructively used to explain political phenomena and also reflects more broadly on how theories are developed and used in political science. Balanced and insightful, this important new text gives a nuanced and elegant evaluation of the potential and limits of rational choice theory.

Five Ways to Make Architecture Political: An Introduction to the Politics of Design Practice Five Ways to Make Architecture Political: An Introduction to the Politics of Design Practice Новинка

Five Ways to Make Architecture Political: An Introduction to the Politics of Design Practice

Five Ways to Make Architecture Political presents an innovative pragmatist agenda that will inspire new thinking about the politics of design and architectural practice. Moving beyond conventional conversations about design and politics, the book shows how recent developments in political philosophy can transform our understanding of the role of designers. Introducing the framework of contemporary post-foundational politics in a way that is accessible to designers, it asks: how, when, and under what circumstances can design practice generate political relations? How can architectural design become more ‘political’? Five central chapters, which can be read alone or in sequence, explore the answers to these questions. Powerfully pragmatic in approach, each presents one of the ‘five ways to make architecture political’, and each is illustrated by case studies from a range of contemporary situations around the world. We see how politics happens in architectural practice, learn how different design technologies have political effects, and follow how architects reach different publics, trigger reactions and affect different communities worldwide. Combining an accessible introduction to contemporary political concepts with a practical approach for a more political kind of practice, this book will stimulate debate among students and theorists alike, and inspire action in established and start-up practices.

An Infusion of Eastern and Western Music Styles into Art Song

This research book introduces two sets of her art songs written for mezzo-soprano voice, reviewing the features of these compositions that represent the unique style of her music, which is influenced by Chinese folk music idioms and Western modern music elements. It is anticipated that research into the compositional values of Chen’s vocal works and promotion of her art songs will spark new exploration of contemporary women composers’ works. By offering musical analyses and performing strategies on Chen’s art songs, a new variety of contemporary vocal repertoire for mezzo-soprano voice will become available to professional singers, singing students, and voice teachers for their further studies. Therefore, many of these individuals will make renewed contributions to continuing the tradition of art song and developing its artistry through their performing and teaching practices.

Eli Broad The Art of Being Unreasonable. Lessons in Unconventional Thinking

Unorthodox success principles from a billionaire entrepreneur and philanthropist Eli Broad's embrace of «unreasonable thinking» has helped him build two Fortune 500 companies, amass personal billions, and use his wealth to create a new approach to philanthropy. He has helped to fund scientific research institutes, K-12 education reform, and some of the world's greatest contemporary art museums. By contrast, «reasonable» people come up with all the reasons something new and different can't be done, because, after all, no one else has done it that way. This book shares the «unreasonable» principles—from negotiating to risk-taking, from investing to hiring—that have made Eli Broad such a success. Broad helped to create the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Broad Contemporary Art Museum at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and The Broad, a new museum being built in downtown Los Angeles His investing approach to philanthropy has led to the creation of scientific and medical research centers in the fields of genomic medicine and stem cell research At his alma mater, Michigan State University, he endowed a full-time M.B.A. program, and he and his wife have funded a new contemporary art museum on campus to serve the broader region Eli Broad is the founder of two Fortune 500 companies: KB Home and SunAmerica If you're stuck doing what reasonable people do—and not getting anywhere—let Eli Broad show you how to be unreasonable, and see how far your next endeavor can go.

A Defense of Rule

While political theorists tend to regard rule as a necessary evil, this book aims to explain how rule need not be understood as anathema to political life. By looking at some of the earliest traditions of political thought, Stuart Gray establishes a new analytic approach to understanding fundamental political ideas of other cultures and time periods, and he uses this comparative analysis to re-envision the meaning of rule in contemporary political life.
Advanced pricing of loans using the risk-neutral approach Advanced pricing of loans using the risk-neutral approach Новинка

Advanced pricing of loans using the risk-neutral approach

This book describes a new methodology that allows the Banks to evaluate the loans using a risk neutral approach. More in detail it illustrates the methodological framework behind the definition of the risk neutral default probabilities used to estimate the loans credit spreads. These risk neutral probabilities are calculated using a contingent-claims approach conceptually similar to the Black-Scholes and Merton framework for modeling corporate liabilities. The proposed risk neutral approach is suitable at producing estimates, in a fair value computation context, that are as close as possible to the exit price as mandated by IFRS 13 with a lower dependency on internal parameters. The methodology is compatible with the income approach, usually adopted for the loans evaluation, and is coherent with the discounted cashflows methodologies used for the pricing of securities subject to default risk.
