Genre: Computers

Wenn Sie programmieren können, beherrschen Sie bereits Techniken, um aus Daten Wissen zu extrahieren. Diese kompakte Einführung in die Statistik zeigt Ihnen, wie Sie rechnergestützt, anstatt auf mathematischem Weg Datenanalysen mit Python durchführen können. Praktischer Programmier-Workshop statt grauer Theorie: Das Buch führt Sie anhand eines durchgängigen Fallbeispiels durch eine vollständige Datenanalyse -- von der Datensammlung über die Berechnung statistischer Kennwerte und Identifikation von Mustern bis hin zum Testen statistischer Hypothesen. Gleichzeitig werden Sie mit statistischen Verteilungen, den Regeln der Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung, Visualisierungsmöglichkeiten und vielen anderen Arbeitstechniken und Konzepten vertraut gemacht. Statistik-Konzepte zum Ausprobieren: Entwickeln Sie über das Schreiben und Testen von Code ein Verständnis für die Grundlagen von Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und Statistik: Überprüfen Sie das Verhalten statistischer Merkmale durch Zufallsexperimente, zum Beispiel indem Sie Stichproben aus unterschiedlichen Verteilungen ziehen. Nutzen Sie Simulationen, um Konzepte zu verstehen, die auf mathematischem Weg nur schwer zugänglich sind. Lernen Sie etwas über Themen, die in Einführungen üblicherweise nicht vermittelt werden, beispielsweise über die Bayessche Schätzung. Nutzen Sie Python zur Bereinigung und Aufbereitung von Rohdaten aus nahezu beliebigen Quellen. Beantworten Sie mit den Mitteln der Inferenzstatistik Fragestellungen zu realen Daten.

Das Chaos im Karpfenteich oder Wie Mathematik unsere Welt regiert

Author: Richard Elwes
Publisher: Springer-Verlag
ISBN: 9783642417931
Release Date: 2014-07-21
Genre: Mathematics

Von gespiegelten Universen, sozialen Netzwerken, dem Aufstieg des Homo oeconomicus und dem Ärger im Lehrerzimmer Kann uns die Mathematik helfen, besser zu lügen? Wird es Maschinen geben, die klüger sind als wir? Wie wäre es, in einem gespiegelten Universum zu leben? Was können wir von Fischen in einem Teich lernen? Ob Sie es glauben oder nicht – Antworten auf all diese Fragen finden Sie in der Welt der Zahlen. Mathematik ist einfach überall. Dieses Buch behandelt in 35 kurzen Kapiteln ihre überraschendsten Anwendungen im Alltag. Es holt das oft so ungeliebte Fach aus dem Klassenzimmer mitten ins Leben, und es zeigt, wie die Mathematik jenes „verborgene Netz“ knüpft, das unsere Welt durchdringt und beherrscht. Richard Elwes lädt sie zu einer anregenden Entdeckungsreise ein. Es geht um Wettervorhersagen, Wahlen und Warteschlangen, um bildgebende Verfahren und schwarze Löcher, um ein mathematisches Modell, wie man zu Reichtum gelangt, und um Einsteins Wegweiser durch den Raum. Sie werden die Formel für jedes jemals geschossene Foto kennenlernen und sich Ihrer eigenen Erbsubstanz nähern. Das Chaos im Karpfenteich zeigt, warum die oft so fremd erscheinende Welt der Mathematik Ihnen viel näher und vertrauter ist, als Sie es sich bisher vorstellen konnten.
