Leadership and Women in Statistics

Learn How to Infuse Leadership into Your Passion for Scientific Research Leadership and Women in Statistics explores the role of statisticians as leaders, with particular attention to women statisticians as leaders. By paying special attention to women’s issues, this book provides a clear vision for the future of women as leaders in scientific and technical fields. It also shows how emerging and current leaders of both genders in man...

Mathematische Optimierung der Wahlkreiseinteilung für die Deutsche Bundestagswahl

Sebastian Goderbauer zeigt, dass das Einteilen von Wahlkreisen für die Deutsche Bundestagswahl aufgrund der gesetzlichen Vorgaben als ein mathematisches Optimierungsproblem angesehen werden kann. Er gibt eine detaillierte Komplexitätsanalyse des zugrundeliegenden Partitionsproblems an und untersucht, welches die beste Wahlkreisanzahl für Deutschland ist. Der Autor entwickelt einen optimierungsbasierten Algorithmus zum Einteilen von W...

Lectures on Random Interfaces

Interfaces are created to separate two distinct phases in a situation in which phase coexistence occurs. This book discusses randomly fluctuating interfaces in several different settings and from several points of view: discrete/continuum, microscopic/macroscopic, and static/dynamic theories. The following four topics in particular are dealt with in the book.Assuming that the interface is represented as a height function measured fro...

Value Distribution Theory and Related Topics

The Nevanlinna theory of value distribution of meromorphic functions, one of the milestones of complex analysis during the last century, was c- ated to extend the classical results concerning the distribution of of entire functions to the more general setting of meromorphic functions. Later on, a similar reasoning has been applied to algebroid functions, subharmonic functions and meromorphic functions on Riemann surfaces as well as t...

Advances in Multiresolution for Geometric Modelling

Multiresolution methods in geometric modelling are concerned with the generation, representation, and manipulation of geometric objects at several levels of detail. Applications include fast visualization and rendering as well as coding, compression, and digital transmission of 3D geometric objects. This book marks the culmination of the four-year EU-funded research project, Multiresolution in Geometric Modelling (MINGLE). The book c...

Quantile Regression

Quantile regression is gradually emerging as a unified statistical methodology for estimating models of conditional quantile functions. This monograph is the first comprehensive treatment of the subject, encompassing models that are linear and nonlinear, parametric and nonparametric. Roger Koenker has devoted more than 25 years of research to the topic. The methods in his analysis are illustrated with a variety of applications from e...

Cases for Mathematics Teacher Educators

The Association of Mathematics Teacher Educators (AMTE) in its 2015 position paper on Equity in Mathematics Teacher Education provides a list of actions for mathematics teacher educators (MTE's) to help them develop and implement equitable practices.The position paper states it is critical that mathematics teacher educators: "Model equity?based pedagogy that emphasizes rich and rigorous mathematics; elicit and build on children's and...
