Algebraic Structures and Operator Calculus: Volume I: by Philip Feinsilver, René Schott (auth.)

By Philip Feinsilver, René Schott (auth.)

This sequence offers a few instruments of utilized arithmetic within the parts of proba­ bility thought, operator calculus, illustration idea, and specified services used at the moment, and we predict a growing number of sooner or later, for fixing difficulties in math­ ematics, physics, and, now, desktop technological know-how. a lot of the fabric is scattered all through to be had literature, even though, we now have nowhere present in available shape all of this fabric gathered. The presentation of the fabric is unique with the authors. The presentation of likelihood thought in reference to staff represen­ tations is new, this seems in quantity I. Then the functions to desktop technology in quantity II are unique besides. The technique present in quantity III, which offers largely with infinite-dimensional representations of Lie algebras/Lie teams, is new to boot, being encouraged by means of the will to discover a recursive approach for calcu­ lating staff representations. One concept in the back of this can be the opportunity of symbolic computation of the matrix parts. during this quantity, Representations and likelihood thought, we current an intro­ duction to Lie algebras and Lie teams emphasizing the connections with operator calculus, which we interpret via representations, mostly, the motion of the Lie algebras on areas of polynomials. the most positive aspects are the relationship with likelihood concept through second structures and the relationship with the classical ele­ mentary distributions through illustration concept. a few of the platforms of polynomi­ als that come up are the most fascinating features of this study.

The doctrine of chances; or, A method of calculating the probabilities of events in play

Within the yr 1716 Abraham de Moivre released his Doctrine of probabilities, during which the topic of Mathematical likelihood took numerous lengthy strides ahead. many years later got here his Treatise of Annuities. whilst the 3rd (and ultimate) version of the Doctrine used to be released in 1756 it seemed in a single quantity including a revised version of the paintings on Annuities.

Statistical analysis: an interdisciplinary introduction to univariate & multivariate methods

This can be an accelerated variation of the author's "Multivariate Statistical research. " two times as lengthy, it comprises the entire fabric in that variation, yet has a extra huge therapy of introductory equipment, in particular speculation checking out, parameter estimation, and experimental layout. It additionally introduces time sequence research, determination research, and extra complicated likelihood themes (see the accompanying desk of contents).
