English | PDF | 2022 | 396 Pages | ISBN : 3031111575 | 13.5 MB

This book offers extensive information on the operation of gravimeters, including airborne, marine and terrestrial ones, and on the associated data processing methods such as optimal and adaptive filtering, smoothing, structural and parametric identification. Further, it describes specific features relating to the study of the gravitational field in remote areas of the Earth, with the necessary modifications of equipment and software for all-latitude applications. Findings from gravity studies in such remote areas are also presented. Advanced methods for studying the gravitational field, including those for simultaneous determination of gravity anomalies and deflection of the vertical are described and analyzed in detail. Gravity gradiometers and cold atom gravimeters are also covered.

Pacific-Indigenous Psychology: Galuola, A NIU-Wave of Psychological Practices

Pacific-Indigenous Psychology: Galuola, A NIU-Wave of Psychological Practices by Siautu Alefaio-Tugia
English | PDF | 2022 | 221 Pages | ISBN : 3031144317 | 6.9 MB

This book provides an overview of Pacific-Indigenous knowledge as insights of Oceanic citizen-science to inform culturally-safe practice for psychology. It profiles contemporary Pacific needs in areas of crisis such as family violence, education disparities and health inequities, and points to ancient Pacific-indigenous knowledges as tools of healing for global diasporic communities in need. The historical evolution of psychology’s knowledge base and practice illustrates a fundamental crisis in the method of producing knowledge for psychology - the absence of Pacific-indigenous cultural knowledge. It suggests more effective research methodologies grounded in Pacific-Indigenous epistemologies and ontologies for psychology and overall community capability. It fosters practice perspectives and strategies based on NIU-psychology (New Indigenous Understandings) for innovative solutions to modern-day crises of humanity.

Interdisciplinary Statistics in Mexico

Interdisciplinary Statistics in Mexico: AME Virtual Meeting, September 10–11, 2020, and 34 FNE, Acatlán, Mexico, September 22–24, 2021 by Isadora Antoniano-Villalobos, Ruth Fuentes-García, Lizbeth Naranjo, Luis E. Nieto-Barajas, Silvia Ruiz-Velasco Acosta
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 234 Pages | ISBN : 3031127773 | 75.5 MB

​The volume includes a collection of peer-reviewed contributions from among those presented at the FNE, the main conference organized every two years by the Mexican Statistical Society (AME), and the 2020 AME Virtual Meeting. Statistical research in Latin America is prolific and research networks span both within and outside the region. As much of the work is typically carried out and published in Spanish, a large portion of the interested public is denied access to interesting findings, and the goal of this volume is therefore to provide access to selected works from Mexican collaborators and their international research networks to a wider audience. It may be especially attractive to academics interested in the latest methodological advances, while professionals from other disciplines may also find value in these new tools for data analysis. In 2021, the conference broadly focused on the interdisciplinary aspects of Statistics.

The Mathematics of Marine Modelling: Water, Solute and Particle Dynamics in Estuaries and Shallow Seas

The Mathematics of Marine Modelling: Water, Solute and Particle Dynamics in Estuaries and Shallow Seas

The Mathematics of Marine Modelling: Water, Solute and Particle Dynamics in Estuaries and Shallow Seas by Henk Schuttelaars, Arnold Heemink, Eric Deleersnijder
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 324 Pages | ISBN : 3031095588 | 58 MB

Over the past few decades, numerical simulation has become instrumental in understanding the dynamics of seas, coastal regions and estuaries. The decision makers rely more and more frequently on model results for the management of these regions. Some modellers are insufficiently aware of the theoretical underpinning of the simulation tools they are using. On the other hand, a number of applied mathematicians tend to view marine sciences as a domain in which they would like to use the tools they have a good command of. Bridging the gap between model users and applied mathematicians is the main objective of the present book. In this respect a vast number of issues in which mathematics plays a crucial role will be addressed.

When Form Becomes Substance

When Form Becomes Substance: Power of Gestures, Diagrammatical Intuition and Phenomenology of Space by Luciano Boi, Carlos Lobo
English | PDF | 2022 | 607 Pages | ISBN : 3030831248 | 18.8 MB

This interdisciplinary volume collects contributions from experts in their respective fields with as common theme diagrams.
Diagrams play a fundamental role in the mathematical visualization and philosophical analysis of forms in space. Some of the most interesting and profound recent developments in contemporary sciences, whether in topology, geometry, dynamic systems theory, quantum field theory or string theory, have been made possible by the introduction of new types of diagrams, which, in addition to their essential role in the discovery of new classes of spaces and phenomena, have contributed to enriching and clarifying the meaning of the operations, structures and properties that are at the heart of these spaces and phenomena.

STEM English in Japan: Education, Innovation, and Motivation

STEM English in Japan: Education, Innovation, and Motivation by Glen Hill, Joseph Falout, Matthew Apple
English | PDF | 2022 | 390 Pages | ISBN : 303111115X | 6.2 MB

This book focuses on Japanese science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) students and their experiences of learning English. Students majoring in STEM face unique circumstances regarding their English language education. Despite the global use of English in these fields, the authors argue that Japanese STEM students fail to take advantage of coursework, extracurricular materials, teachers, peers, and other resources to raise their communicative abilities to a sufficient level for the workplace.

Infrastructural Being: Rethinking dwelling in a naturecultural world

Infrastructural Being: Rethinking dwelling in a naturecultural world by Jarno Valkonen, Veera Kinnunen, Heikki Huilaja, Teemu Loikkanen
English | PDF | 2022 | 217 Pages | ISBN : 3031158261 | 3.8 MB

This book provides a comprehensive insight into the contemporary naturecultural world by exploring infrastructures through the dwelling approach. The notion of naturecultures has been utilized in environmental humanities and social sciences to emphasize the inherent messiness of the lived world and the inseparability of social and biophysical elements. Concept of naturecultures stresses that seemingly “natural” is always simultaneously “cultural” and vice versa. This approach allows fleshing out the messy engagements with infrastructures, which in this book is conceptualized as infrastructural being.

Emerging Topics in Modeling Interval-Censored Survival Data

Emerging Topics in Modeling Interval-Censored Survival Data by Jianguo Sun, Ding-Geng Chen
English | PDF,EPUB | 2022 | 322 Pages | ISBN : 3031123654 | 25.9 MB

This book primarily aims to discuss emerging topics in statistical methods and to booster research, education, and training to advance statistical modeling on interval-censored survival data. Commonly collected from public health and biomedical research, among other sources, interval-censored survival data can easily be mistaken for typical right-censored survival data, which can result in erroneous statistical inference due to the complexity of this type of data.
