Numerical Methods for Least Squares Problems

Buy
The method of least squares was discovered by Gauss in 1795. It has since become the principal tool for reducing the influence of errors when fitting models to given observations. Today, applications of least squares arise in a great number of scientific areas, such as statistics, geodetics, signal processing, and control.

In the last 20 years there has been a great increase in the capacity for automatic data capturing and computing. Least squares problems of large size are now routinely solved. Tremendous progress has been made in numerical methods for least squares problems, in particular for generalized and modified least squares problems and direct and iterative methods for sparse problems. Until now there has not been a monograph that covers the full spectrum of relevant problems and methods in least squares.

This volume gives an in-depth treatment of topics such as methods for sparse least squares problems, iterative methods, modified least squares, weighted problems, and constrained and regularized problems. The more than 800 references provide a comprehensive survey of the available literature on the subject.

Mathematics for Econometrics
Mathematics for Econometrics

This book deals with a number of mathematical topics that are of great importance in the study of classical econometrics. There is a lengthy chapter on matrix algebra, which takes the reader from the most elementary aspects to the partitioned inverses, characteristic roots and vectors, symmetric, and orthogonal and positive (semi) definite...

A Dictionary of Real Numbers
How do we recognize that the number .93371663... is actually 21og1 0(e + 7r)/2 ? Gauss observed that the number 1.85407467... is (essentially) a rational value of an elliptic integral—an observation that was critical in the development of nineteenth century analysis. How do we decide that such a number is actually a special value of a...
Bayesian Argumentation: The practical side of probability (Synthese Library)
Bayesian Argumentation: The practical side of probability (Synthese Library)

Relevant to, and drawing from, a range of disciplines, the chapters in this collection show the diversity, and applicability, of research in Bayesian argumentation. Together, they form a challenge to philosophers versed in both the use and criticism of Bayesian models who have largely overlooked their potential in argumentation. Selected from...

WordPress 2.8 Theme Design
WordPress 2.8 Theme Design
Theme design can be approached from two angles. The first is simplicity; sometimes it suits the client and/or the site to go as bare-bones as possible. In that case, it's quick and easy to take a very basic, pre-made theme and modify it. The second is "Unique and Beautiful". Occasionally, the site's theme needs to be created from scratch...
