Introduction to Robust Estimation and Hypothesis Testing

Author: Rand R. Wilcox
Publisher: Academic Press
ISBN: 9780123869838
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Mathematics

"This book focuses on the practical aspects of modern and robust statistical methods. The increased accuracy and power of modern methods, versus conventional approaches to the analysis of variance (ANOVA) and regression, is remarkable. Through a combination of theoretical developments, improved and more flexible statistical methods, and the power of the computer, it is now possible to address problems with standard methods that seemed insurmountable only a few years ago"--

Decision Making Uncertainty Imperfection Deliberation and Scalability

Author: Tatiana V. Guy
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319151441
Release Date: 2015-02-09
Genre: Computers

This volume focuses on uncovering the fundamental forces underlying dynamic decision making among multiple interacting, imperfect and selfish decision makers. The chapters are written by leading experts from different disciplines, all considering the many sources of imperfection in decision making, and always with an eye to decreasing the myriad discrepancies between theory and real world human decision making. Topics addressed include uncertainty, deliberation cost and the complexity arising from the inherent large computational scale of decision making in these systems. In particular, analyses and experiments are presented which concern: • task allocation to maximize “the wisdom of the crowd”; • design of a society of “edutainment” robots who account for one anothers’ emotional states; • recognizing and counteracting seemingly non-rational human decision making; • coping with extreme scale when learning causality in networks; • efficiently incorporating expert knowledge in personalized medicine; • the effects of personality on risky decision making. The volume is a valuable source for researchers, graduate students and practitioners in machine learning, stochastic control, robotics, and economics, among other fields.

Advances in Image Processing and Understanding

Author: Alan Conrad Bovik
Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9789812380913
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Technology & Engineering

This volume of original papers has been assembled to honor the achievements of Professor Thomas S Huang in the area of image processing and image analysis. Professor Huang's life of inquiry has spanned a number of decades as his work on imaging problems began in 1960's. Over these 40 years, he has made many fundamental and pioneering contributions to nearly every area of this field. Professor Huang has received numerous Awards, including the prestigious Jack Kilby Signal Processing Medal from IEEE. He has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, and named Fellow of IEEE, Fellow of OSA, Fellow of IAPR, and Fellow of SPIE. Professor Huang has made fundamental contributions to image processing, pattern recognition, and computer vision: including design and stability test of multidimensional digital filters, digital holography; compression techniques for documents and images; 3D motion and modeling, analysis and visualization of the human face, hand and body, multi-modal human-computer interfaces; and multimedia databases. Many of his research ideas have been seminal, opening up new areas of research. Professor Huang is continuing his contribution to the field in the new millennium This book is intended to highlight his contributions by showing the breadth of areas in which his students are working. As such, contributed chapters were written by some of his many former graduate students (some with Professor Huang as a coauthor) and illustrate not only his contributions to imaging science but also his commitment to educational endeavor. The breadth of contributions is an indication of influence of Professor Huang to the field of signal processing, image processing, computer vision and applications; the book includes chapters on learning in image retrieval, facial motion analysis, cloud motion tracking, wavelet coding, robust video transmission, and many other topics. The Appendix contains several reprints of Professor Huang's most influential papers from 1970's to 1990's. This book is directed towards image processing researchers, including academic faculty, graduate students and industry researchers, as well as toward professionals working in application areas.

Applied Data Analysis and Modeling for Energy Engineers and Scientists

Author: T. Agami Reddy
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1441996133
Release Date: 2011-08-09
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Applied Data Analysis and Modeling for Energy Engineers and Scientists fills an identified gap in engineering and science education and practice for both students and practitioners. It demonstrates how to apply concepts and methods learned in disparate courses such as mathematical modeling, probability,statistics, experimental design, regression, model building, optimization, risk analysis and decision-making to actual engineering processes and systems. The text provides a formal structure that offers a basic, broad and unified perspective,while imparting the knowledge, skills and confidence to work in data analysis and modeling. This volume uses numerous solved examples, published case studies from the author’s own research, and well-conceived problems in order to enhance comprehension levels among readers and their understanding of the “processes”along with the tools.
