Описание: Recent decades have witnessed explosive growth in new and powerful tools for timeseries analysis. These innovations have overturned older approaches to forecasting, macroeconomic policy analysis, the study of productivity and long-run economic growth, and the trading of financial assets. Familiarity with these new tools on time series is an essential skill for statisticians, econometricians, and applied researchers. Introduction to Time Series Using Stata provides a step-by-step guide to essential timeseries techniques—from the incredibly simple to the quite complex—and, at the same time, demonstrates how these techniques can be applied in the Stata statistical package. The emphasis is on an understanding of the intuition underlying theoretical innovations and an ability to apply them. Real-world examples illustrate the application of each concept as it is introduced, and care is taken to highlight the pitfalls, as well as the power, of each new tool. Sean Becketti is a financial industry veteran with three decades of experience in academics, government, and private industry. Over the last two decades, Becketti has led proprietary research teams at several leading financial firms, responsible for the models underlying the valuation, hedging, and relative value analysis of some of the largest fixed-income portfolios in the world.

Описание: To write an accomplished program in the DATA step of SAS®, programmers must understand programming logic and know how to implement and even create their own programming algorithm. Handbook of SAS® DATA Step Programming shows readers how best to manage and manipulate data by using the DATA step. The book helps novices avoid common mistakes resulting from a lack of understanding fundamental and unique SAS programming concepts. It explains that learning syntax does not solve all problems; rather, a thorough comprehension of SAS processing is needed for successful programming. The author also guides readers through a programming task. In most of the examples, the author first presents strategies and steps for solving the problem, then offers a solution, and finally gives a more detailed explanation of the solution. Understanding the DATA steps, particularly the program data vector (PDV), is critical to proper data manipulation and management in SAS. This book helps SAS programmers thoroughly grasp the concept of DATA step processing and write accurate programs in the DATA step. Numerous supporting materials, including data sets and programs used in the text, are available on the book’s CRC Press web page.

Описание: Whether you are new to Stata graphics or a seasoned veteran, A Visual Guide to Stata Graphics, Third Edition will reach you how to use Stata to make publication-quality graphics that will stand out and enhance your statistical results. With over 900 illustrated examples and quick-reference tabs, this book quickly guides you to the information you need for creating and customizing high-quality graphs for any type of statistical data. Each graph is displayed in full color with simple and clear instructions that illustrate how to create and customize graphs using either Stata commands or the Stata Graph Editor. Stata’s powerful graphics system gives you complete control over how the elements of your graph look, from marker symbols to lines, from legends to captions and titles, from axis labels to grid lines, and more. Whether you use this book as a learning tool or a quick reference, you will have the power of Stata graphics at your fingertips. The third edition has been updated and expanded to reflect new Stat graphics features, and includes many additional examples. This updated edition illustrates new features to specify fonts and symbols. New sections have been added that illustrate the use of the marginsplot command as well as the use of contour plots.
Extreme value theory (EVT) deals with extreme (rare) events, which are sometimes reported as outliers. Certain textbooks encourage readers to remove outliers--in other words, to correct reality if it does not fit the model. Recognizing that any model is only an approximation of reality, statisticians are eager to extract information about unknown distribution making as few assumptions as possible.
Extreme Value Methods with Applications to Finance concentrates on modern topics in EVT, such as processes of exceedances, compound Poisson approximation, Poisson cluster approximation, and nonparametric estimation methods. These topics have not been fully focused on in other books on extremes. In addition, the book covers:
Extremes in samples of random size
Methods of estimating extreme quantiles and tail probabilities
Self-normalized sums of random variables
Measures of market risk
Along with examples from finance and insurance to illustrate the methods, Extreme Value Methods with Applications to Finance includes over 200 exercises, making it useful as a reference book, self-study tool, or comprehensive course text.
A systematic background to a rapidly growing branch of modern Probability and Statistics: extreme value theory for stationary sequences of random variables.
Описание: The material covered by this book has been taught by one of the authors in a post-graduate course on Numerical Analysis at the University Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris. It is an extended version of a previous text (cf. Girault & Raviart [32J) published in 1979 by Springer-Verlag in its series: Lecture Notes in Mathematics.
In the last decade, many engineers and mathematicians have concentrated their efforts on the finite element solution of the Navier-Stokes equations for incompressible flows. The purpose of this book is to provide a fairly comprehen- sive treatment of the most recent developments in that field. To stay within reasonable bounds, we have restricted ourselves to the case of stationary prob- lems although the time-dependent problems are of fundamental importance.
This topic is currently evolving rapidly and we feel that it deserves to be covered by another specialized monograph. We have tried, to the best of our ability, to present a fairly exhaustive treatment of the finite element methods for inner flows. On the other hand however, we have entirely left out the subject of exterior problems which involve radically different techniques, both from a theoretical and from a practical point of view.
Also, we have neither discussed the implemen- tation of the finite element methods presented by this book, nor given any explicit numerical result. This field is extensively covered by Peyret & Taylor [64J and Thomasset .
Описание: This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Energy Minimization Methods in Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition, EMMCVPR 2001, held in Sophia Antipolis, France in September 2001. The 42 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 70 submissions. The book offers topical sections on probabilistic models and estimation; image modeling and synthesis; clustering, grouping, and segmentation; optimization and graphs; and shapes, curves, surfaces, and templates.
Описание: Electromagnetic wave theory is based on Maxwell's equations, and electromagnetic boundary-value problems must be solved to understand electromagnetic scattering, propagation, and radiation. Electromagnetic theory finds practical applications in wireless telecommunications and microwave engineering. This book is written as a text for a two-semester graduate course on electromagnetic wave theory. As such, Electromagnetic Wave Theory for Boundary-Value Problems is intended to help students enhance analytic skills by solving pertinent boundary-value problems. In particular, the techniques of Fourier transform, mode matching, and residue calculus are utilized to solve some canonical scattering and radiation problems.

Описание: Data Analysis Using Stata, Third Edition is a comprehensive introduction to both statistical methods and Stata. Beginners will learn the logic of data analysis and interpretation and easily become self-sufficient data analysts. Readers already familiar with Stata will find it an enjoyable resource for picking up new tips and tricks. The book is written as a self-study tutorial and organized around examples. It interactively introduces statistical techniques such as data exploration, description, and regression techniques for continuous and binary dependent variables. Step by step, readers move through the entire process of data analysis and in doing so learn the principles of Stata, data manipulation, graphical representation, and programs to automate repetitive tasks. This third edition includes advanced topics, such as factor-variables notation, average marginal effects, standard errors in complex survey, and multiple imputation in a way, that beginners of both data analysis and Stata can understand. Using data from a longitudinal study of private households, the authors provide examples from the social sciences that are relatable to researchers from all disciplines. The examples emphasize good statistical practice and reproducible research. Readers are encouraged to download the companion package of datasets to replicate the examples as they work through the book. Each chapter ends with exercises to consolidate acquired skills.
Описание: Several very powerful numerical linear algebra techniques are available for solving problems in data mining and pattern recognition. This application-oriented book describes how modern matrix methods can be used to solve these problems, gives an introduction to matrix theory and decompositions, and provides students with a set of tools that can be modified for a particular application. Part I gives a short introduction to a few application areas before presenting linear algebra concepts and matrix decompositions that students can use in problem-solving environments such as MATLAB. In Part II, linear algebra techniques are applied to data mining problems. Part III is a brief introduction to eigenvalue and singular value algorithms. The applications discussed include classification of handwritten digits, text mining, text summarization, pagerank computations related to the Google search engine, and face recognition. Exercises and computer assignments are available on a Web page that supplements the book.
