Parallel Coordinates

Author: Alfred Inselberg
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9780387686288
Release Date: 2009-08-15
Genre: Mathematics

This is one book that can genuinely be said to be straight from the horse’s mouth. Written by the originator of the technique, it examines parallel coordinates as the leading methodology for multidimensional visualization. Starting from geometric foundations, this is the first systematic and rigorous exposition of the methodology's mathematical and algorithmic components. It covers, among many others, the visualization of multidimensional lines, minimum distances, planes, hyperplanes, and clusters of "near" planes. The last chapter explains in a non-technical way the methodology's application to visual and automatic data mining. The principles of the latter, along with guidelines, strategies and algorithms are illustrated in detail on real high-dimensional datasets.

Trends in Interactive Visualization

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 1848002696
Release Date: 2008-12-17
Genre: Computers

II Challenges in Data Mapping Part II deals with one of the most challenging tasks in Interactive Visualization, mapping and teasing out information from large complex datasets and generating visual representations. This section consists of four chapters. Binh Pham, Alex Streit, and Ross Brown provide a comprehensive requirement analysis of information uncertainty visualizations. They examine the sources of uncertainty, review aspects of its complexity, introduce typical models of uncertainty, and analyze major issues in visualization of uncertainty, from various user and task perspectives. Alfred Inselberg examines challenges in the multivariate data analysis. He explains how relations among multiple variables can be mapped uniquely into ?-space subsets having geometrical properties and introduces Parallel Coordinates meth- ology for the unambiguous visualization and exploration of a multidimensional geometry and multivariate relations. Christiaan Gribble describes two alternative approaches to interactive particle visualization: one targeting desktop systems equipped with programmable graphics hardware and the other targeting moderately sized multicore systems using pack- based ray tracing. Finally, Christof Rezk Salama reviews state-of-the-art strategies for the assignment of visual parameters in scientific visualization systems. He explains the process of mapping abstract data values into visual based on transfer functions, clarifies the terms of pre- and postclassification, and introduces the state-of-the-art user int- faces for the design of transfer functions.

Handbook of Computational Statistics

Release Date: 2012-07-06
Genre: Computers

The Handbook of Computational Statistics - Concepts and Methods (second edition) is a revision of the first edition published in 2004, and contains additional comments and updated information on the existing chapters, as well as three new chapters addressing recent work in the field of computational statistics. This new edition is divided into 4 parts in the same way as the first edition. It begins with "How Computational Statistics became the backbone of modern data science" (Ch.1): an overview of the field of Computational Statistics, how it emerged as a separate discipline, and how its own development mirrored that of hardware and software, including a discussion of current active research. The second part (Chs. 2 - 15) presents several topics in the supporting field of statistical computing. Emphasis is placed on the need for fast and accurate numerical algorithms, and some of the basic methodologies for transformation, database handling, high-dimensional data and graphics treatment are discussed. The third part (Chs. 16 - 33) focuses on statistical methodology. Special attention is given to smoothing, iterative procedures, simulation and visualization of multivariate data. Lastly, a set of selected applications (Chs. 34 - 38) like Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging, Finance, Econometrics and Network Intrusion Detection highlight the usefulness of computational statistics in real-world applications.

New Techniques and Technologies for Statistics II

Author: Statistical Office of the European Communities
Publisher: IOS Press
ISBN: 9051993269
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Mathematics

The compilation and deployment of statistical techniques is nowadays almost universally based on computing systems. Rapidly changing technology is expanding the options available for improving the quality, range and delivery of statistics whilst reducing the cost, and at the same time is putting pressure on producers and users to keep up with the latest techniques, both as management views develop of what is possible and simply through peer group pressure. In the areas of official statistics, it is clear that new technologies will change our approach to the whole range to activities from systems design, through data collection, processing, analysis and dissemination, to the structure of the European Statistical System and internal organization of national statistical institutes. Eurostat has a central role in promoting and coordinating the development and use of statistics in public administrations, which extends to the adoption of new techniques and technologies as they are proven validated. An important aspect of this role is to anticipate needs, to stimulate, encourage and fund research work of common interest, to support national initiatives and to prove a forum for discussion. In this new book techniques and technologies in statistics are described. The needs and constraints of official staticians are described as well as the latest developments of researchers. The book presents the research and development projects funded by the European Commission in the development of statistical tools and techniques under the R&D framework programme and the progress to date in the current Development of Statistical Information Systems (DOSIS) programme.

Statistical Challenges in Modern Astronomy IV

Author: Gutti Jogesh Babu
Publisher: Astronomical Society of the pacific
ISBN: 1583812407
Release Date: 2007-01-01
Genre: Science

"This is the fourth in a series of international conferences for the vanguard of researchers in the cross-disciplinary field of astrostatistics. Both astronomical and statistical communities now recognize the wide array of fascinating methodological issues faced by the modern astronomer. Ranging from terabyte wide-field surveys to small-N samples, from cosmology to the search for Earth-like planets, astronomical research can no longer be pursued with a small toolbox of familiar statistical methods. Over thirty distinguished scholars from both fields presented invited talks and commentaries on leading problems in astrostatistics. The methodological challenges of inferring cosmological insights from the cosmic microwave background fluctuations, the distribution of galaxies in space, gravitational lensing, and galaxy structure wre describe in detail. Time series analysis is discussed in a variety of contexts: sparse Poisson data, multiply-periodic systems, gravitational wave detection, and most dramatically in the search for extrasolar planets. Here sophisticated Bayesian model selection with MCMC computations plays a critical role. Other topics covered include image processing, analysis of mega-datasets from large surveys, and small-N problems in both astronomy and particle physics. The volume ends with cross-disciplinary overviews and software tutorials. The book will be valuable to graduate students and researchers in both astronomy and statistics who seek insights into this promising avenue of cross-disciplinary research."--Publisher's website.

Genre: Mathematics

Mathematical Visualization is a young new discipline. It offers efficient visualization tools to the classical subjects of mathematics, and applies mathematical techniques to problems in computer graphics and scientific visualization. Originally, it started in the interdisciplinary area of differential geometry, numerical mathematics, and computer graphics. In recent years, the methods developed have found important applications. The current volume is the quintessence of an international workshop in September 1997 in Berlin, focusing on recent developments in this emerging area. Experts present selected research work on new algorithms for visualization problems, describe the application and experiments in geometry, and develop new numerical or computer graphical techniques.
