Download E-books Maximum-Entropy and Bayesian Methods in Science and Engineering: Foundations PDF

By E. T. Jaynes (auth.), Gary J. Erickson, C. Ray Smith (eds.)

This quantity has its foundation within the 5th, 6th and 7th Workshops on and Bayesian tools in utilized Statistics", held at "Maximum-Entropy the college of Wyoming, August 5-8, 1985, and at Seattle collage, August 5-8, 1986, and August 4-7, 1987. It was once expected that the court cases of those workshops will be mixed, so lots of the papers weren't gathered till after the 7th workshop. simply because the entire papers during this quantity are on foundations, it really is believed that the con­ tents of this quantity can be of lasting curiosity to the Bayesian group. The workshop was once geared up to collect researchers from diverse fields to seriously learn maximum-entropy and Bayesian equipment in technological know-how and engineering in addition to different disciplines. the various papers have been selected particularly to kindle curiosity in new components which can supply new instruments or perception to the reader or to stimulate paintings on urgent difficulties that seem to be best to the maximum-entropy or Bayesian process. a number of papers offered on the workshops will not be incorporated in those lawsuits, yet a couple of extra papers no longer awarded on the workshop are integrated. particularly, we're overjoyed to make on hand Professor E. T. Jaynes' unpublished Stanford collage Microwave Laboratory record No. 421 "How Does the mind Do believable Reasoning?" (dated August 1957). it is a attractive, specified educational at the Cox-Polya-Jaynes method of Bayesian likelihood thought and the maximum-entropy principle.

By Patrick Kilian, Thomas Burkart, Felix Spanier (auth.), Wolfgang E. Nagel, Dietmar B. Kröner, Michael M. Resch (eds.)

This ebook provides the state of the art in simulation on supercomputers. top researchers current effects accomplished on structures of the excessive functionality Computing heart Stuttgart (HLRS) for the yr 2011. The stories disguise all fields of computational technological know-how and engineering, starting from CFD to computational physics and chemistry, to computing device technology, with a unique emphasis on industrially proper functions. proposing effects for either vector platforms and microprocessor-based structures, the publication permits readers to match the functionality degrees and value of varied architectures. As HLRS operates not just a wide cluster method but additionally one of many greatest NEC vector structures on this planet, this publication additionally deals very good insights into the potential for vector structures. The ebook covers the most equipment utilized in high-performance computing. Its remarkable leads to reaching maximum functionality for construction codes are of specific curiosity for scientists and engineers alike. The ebook comes with a wealth of colour illustrations and tables of results.

By Kris Bosworth

This trouble-free quantity makes a robust, useful, research-based case for integrating prevention courses into center and excessive colleges. Written by way of specialists in prevention technological know-how and schooling, it examines academic pursuits and prevention of dicy behaviors as parallel and complementary methods and gives facts for health-promoting faculties as a serious discussion board for pupil improvement. Chapters exhibit the advantages of this collaboration, as teachers interact with prevention content material, prevention scientists research colleges and create interventions, and counselors strengthen and enforce actions, leading to stronger educational, social, and overall healthiness results. Examples of winning prevention options handle own and public health and wellbeing matters as different as substance abuse, relationship violence, throwing in the towel, and suicide.

 Among the subjects covered:

 

  • Engaging tuition leaders in prevention

Download E-books L'économie politique n'est pas une science morale PDF

By Bruno Amable, Stefano Palombarini

Les sciences sociales et l'économie politique sont menacées par le retour d'un moralisme qui nie le conflit social et discrédite l'opposition aux projets élaborés en vue d'un prétendu " bien commun ". Ce livre soumet à une critique raisonnée l'un des courants qui incarne le mieux ce phénomène : " l'économie des conventions ". Loin de proposer une development scientifique, ce courant offre une validation éthique aux projets politiques (en premiere lieu celui de l. a. " troisième voie ") qui disqualifient l'idéal égalitaire en privilégiant une hypothétique égalité des probabilities par rapport à celle des résultats. Les économistes Bruno Amable et Stefano Palombarini proposent ensuite une théorie néoréaliste du changement institutionnel qui
redonne toute sa position au caractère nécessairement sélectif du choix politique. Et qui permet de
reconnaître, derrière los angeles rhétorique du bien commun, l. a. frontière entre intérêts dominants et intérêts dominés.

This e-book, according to specific reports of 8 techniques in arithmetic and technological know-how schooling, has many insights to provide on present college reform. on account that each one innovation studied has taken its personal new angle, the set as an entire spans the spectrum from curriculum improvement to systemic reform, from c- centrating on specific tuition populations to addressing all of K-12 schooling. but those reform tasks percentage a standard context, an international view on what m- ters in technology and arithmetic for college kids of the Nineteen Nineties and past, conv- tions approximately what constitutes potent guideline, and a few notions approximately how university switch might be led to. those commonalities are drawn out within the booklet and illustrated with examples from the person case experiences which are reportedin complete in BoldVentures, Volumes 2 and three. The 8 innovations—all of them tasks which are famous, not less than through identify, to U. S. audiences—are in brief defined in bankruptcy 1. every one used to be the s- ject of an in-depth, three-year case learn. The study groups analyzed many files, attended quite a few undertaking conferences, visited a number of websites, condu- ed dozens of person interviews. The group leaders, having spent a lot time with arithmetic or technological know-how schooling over lengthy careers, checked out those reform initiatives via a number of lenses; the groups sifted during the mountains of information that they had gathered in an effort to inform the tale of every venture in wealthy detail.
