Forest Analytics with R: An Introduction (Use R!)

Buy
R is an open-source and free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. R compiles and runs on a wide variety of UNIX platforms (e.g., GNU/Linux and FreeBSD), Windows, and Mac OSX. Since the late 1990s, R has been developed by hundreds of contributors and new capabilities are added each month. The software is gaining popularity because: 1) it is platform independent, 2) it is free, and 3) the source code is freely available and can be inspected to determine exactly what R is doing.

Our objectives for this book are to 1) demonstrate the use of R as a solid platform upon which forestry analysts can develop repeatable and clearly documented methods; 2) provide guidance in the broad area of data handling and analysis for forest and natural resources analytics; and 3) to use R to solve problems we face each day as forest data analysts.

This book is intended for two broad audiences: students, researchers, and software people who commonly handle forestry data; and forestry practitioners who need to develop actionable solutions to common operational, tactical, and strategic problems. We often mention better and more complete treatments of specific subject material for further reference (e.g., forest sampling, spatial statistics, or operations research).

We hope that this book will serve as a field manual for practicing forest analysts, managers, and researchers. We hope that it will be dog-eared, defaced, coffee/tea-stained, and sticky-noted to near destruction. We hope the reader will engage in the exercises, scrutinize its contents, forgive our weaknesses, possibly and carefully absorb suggestions, and constructively criticize.

Simulation-Based Algorithms for Markov Decision Processes (Communications and Control Engineering)
Simulation-Based Algorithms for Markov Decision Processes (Communications and Control Engineering)
Markov decision process (MDP) models are widely used for modeling sequential decision-making problems that arise in engineering, economics, computer science, and the social sciences.  Many real-world problems modeled by MDPs have huge state and/or action spaces, giving an opening to the curse of dimensionality and so making practical...
Foundations of Statistical Algorithms: With References to R Packages (Chapman & Hall/CRC Computer Science and Data Analysis)
Foundations of Statistical Algorithms: With References to R Packages (Chapman & Hall/CRC Computer Science and Data Analysis)

A new and refreshingly different approach to presenting the foundations of statistical algorithms, Foundations of Statistical Algorithms: With References to R Packages reviews the historical development of basic algorithms to illuminate the evolution of today’s more powerful statistical...

Probabilistic Databases (Synthesis Lectures on Data Management)
Probabilistic Databases (Synthesis Lectures on Data Management)
Probabilistic databases are databases where the value of some attributes or the presence of some records are uncertain and known only with some probability. Applications in many areas such as information extraction, RFID and scientific data management, data cleaning, data integration, and financial risk assessment produce large volumes of...

Network-Based Distributed Planning Using Coevolutionary Algorithms (Intelligent Control and Intelligent Automation - Vol. 13)
Network-Based Distributed Planning Using Coevolutionary Algorithms (Intelligent Control and Intelligent Automation - Vol. 13)
In this book, efficient and scalable coevolutionary algorithms for distributed, network-based decision-making, which utilize objective functions are developed in a networked environment where internode communications are a primary factor in system performance.A theoretical foundation for this class of coevolutionary algorithms is introduced...
Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)
Markov Chains: Models, Algorithms and Applications (International Series in Operations Research & Management Science)
Markov chains are a particularly powerful and widely used tool for analyzing a variety of stochastic (probabilistic) systems over time. This monograph will present a series of Markov models, starting from the basic models and then building up to higher-order models. Included in the higher-order discussions are multivariate models, higher-order...
