Описание: Multilevel analysis is the statistical analysis of hierarchically and non-hierarchically nested data. The simplest example is clustered data, such as a sample of students clustered within schools. Multilevel data are especially prevalent in the social and behavioral sciences and in the bio-medical sciences. The models used for this type of data are linear and nonlinear regression models that account for observed and unobserved heterogeneity at the various levels in the data. This book presents the state of the art in multilevel analysis, with an emphasis on more advanced topics. These topics are discussed conceptually, analyzed mathematically, and illustrated by empirical examples. The authors of the chapters are the leading experts in the field.Given the omnipresence of multilevel data in the social, behavioral, and biomedical sciences, this book is useful for empirical researchers in these fields. Prior knowledge of multilevel analysis is not required, but a basic knowledge of regression analysis, (asymptotic) statistics, and matrix algebra is assumed.
Описание: The numerical treatment of partial differential equations with meshfree discretization techniques has been a very active research area in recent years. Up to now, however, meshfree methods have been in an early experimental stage and were not competitive due to the lack of efficient iterative solvers and numerical quadrature. This volume now presents an efficient parallel implementation of a meshfree method, namely the partition of unity method (PUM). A general numerical integration scheme is presented for the efficient assembly of the stiffness matrix as well as an optimal multilevel solver for the arising linear system. Furthermore, detailed information on the parallel implementation of the method on distributed memory computers is provided and numerical results are presented in two and three space dimensions with linear, higher order and augmented approximation spaces with up to 42 million degrees of freedom.

Описание: This is a practical introduction to multilevel analysis suitable for all those doing research. Most books on multilevel analysis are written by statisticians, and they focus on the mathematical background. These books are difficult for non-mathematical researchers. In contrast, this volume provides an accessible account on the application of multilevel analysis in research. It addresses the practical issues that confront those undertaking research and wanting to find the correct answers to research questions. This book is written for non-mathematical researchers and it explains when and how to use multilevel analysis. Many worked examples, with computer output, are given to illustrate and explain this subject. Datasets of the examples are available on the internet, so the reader can reanalyse the data. This approach will help to bridge the conceptual and communication gap that exists between those undertaking research and statisticians.
Описание: Volume I is devoted to continuous Gaussian linear mixed models and has nine chapters. The chapters are organized in four parts. The first part provides a review of the methods of linear regression. The second part provides an in-depth coverage of the two-level models, the simplest extensions of a linear regression model. The mixed-model foundation and the in-depth coverage of the mixed-model principles provided in volume I for continuous outcomes, make it straightforward to transition to generalized linear mixed models for noncontinuous outcomes described in volume II.

This latest volume in The Minnesota Symposia on Child Psychology Series highlights recent research across multiple levels of analysis to understand processes that shape development toward and away from behavioral problems and disorders over the life course, including the pathways to mental health. The book examines how dramatic advances in technologies for research on gene-environment interaction, brain function, and the interactions of individuals in larger systems, have changed the study of human behavior and development, and in so doing, transformed both theory and practice in developmental psychopathology. In particular, the book reviews how research on the human genome, geneenvironment interactions, brain imaging, stress, and social networks have changed our understanding of problems and resilience in development.
Featuring contributions from leading researchers in developmental psychopathology, this volume presents integrative thinking and research across several levels of analysis and disciplines. The first three chapters highlight the interactions of biology and context in development, reviewing the latest work on genes-environment interplay in development, and how disorders arise from interactions of biological susceptibilities and exposure to pathogenic contexts. The next three chapters focus on social dynamics of children in families and peer groups, and how these social interactions shape and regulate behavior. Resilience processes are discussed, as well as the implications of research on peer dynamics for prevention, school policies, and treatment. Longitudinal research on depression is examined in relation to the interplay of vulnerability, context, stress, and cognition in development. The book concludes with an illustration of the challenges and benefits of encompassing multiple levels of analysis in a single research program.
Ideal for researchers and advanced students in developmental, clinical, and educational psychology, Multilevel Dynamics in Developmental Psychopathology provides a tantalizing preview of the future of this multidisciplinary science and its applications. This book illuminates the roads leading to more cohesive research on positive as well as pathological development, across levels of analysis and disciplines, and its potential for prevention and treatment.
Описание: Modern semiconductor devices have reached high current and voltage levels, and their power-handling limits can be extended if they are used in multilevel converter configurations. To create high-performance and reliable control designs, however, engineers need in-depth understanding of the characteristics and operation of these topologies. Multilevel Converters for Industrial Applications presents a thorough and comprehensive analysis of multilevel converters with a common DC voltage source. The book offers a novel perspective to help readers understand the principles of the operation of voltage-source multilevel converters as power processors, and their capabilities and limitations. The book begins with an overview of medium-voltage power converters and their applications. It then analyzes the topological characteristics of the diode-clamped multilevel converter, the flying capacitor multilevel converter, and the asymmetric cascaded multilevel converter. For each topology, the authors highlight particular control issues and design trade-offs. They also develop relevant modulation and control strategies. Numerous graphical representations aid in the analysis of the topologies and are useful for beginning the analysis of new multilevel converter topologies. The last two chapters of the book explore two case studies that analyze the behavior of the cascade asymmetric multilevel converter as a distribution static compensator and shunt active power filter, and the behavior of the diode-clamped topology configured as a back-to-back converter. These case studies demonstrate how to address the associated control problems with advanced control and modulation schemes. Examining recent advances, this book provides deep insight on the design of high-power multilevel converters and their applications. It is a valuable reference for anyone interested in medium-voltage power conversion, which is increasingly being used in industry and in renewable energy and distributed generation systems to improve efficiency and operation flexibility.
