Strategic planning, including the required quantitative methods, is
an essential part of bank management and control. In this book
capital, risk and yield are treated comprehensively and seamlessly.
And a thorough introduction to the advanced methods of risk
management for all sectors of banking is discussed. In addition,
directly applicable concepts and data such as macroeconomic
scenarios for strategic planning and stress testing as well as
A Handbook of Statistical Analyses Using SPSS clearly describes how
to conduct a range of univariate and multivariate statistical
analyses using the latest version of the Statistical Package for
the Social Sciences, SPSS 11. Each chapter addresses a different
type of analytical procedure applied to one or more data sets,
primarily from the social and behavioral sciences areas. Each
chapter also contains exercises relating to the data sets
Very broad overview of the field intended for an interdisciplinary audience; Lively discussion of current challenges written in a colloquial style; Author is a rising star in this discipline; Suitably accessible for beginners and suitably rigorous for experts; Features extensive four-color illustrations; Appendices featuring homework assignments and reading lists complement the material in the main text
Addressing graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and mathematics, this book presents a new formulation of the theory of gravity. In the new approach the gravitational field has the same ontology as the electromagnetic, strong, and weak fields. In other words it is a physical field living in Minkowski spacetime. Some necessary new mathematical concepts are introduced and carefully explained. Then they are used to describe the... more...
The book brings together state of the art papers in nonlinear PDEs with applications to: dynamical systems, CFD, computational mechanics, bio engineering, bio mathematics, medical applications, reduction models, optimal control, and mathematical finances
George Thomas' clear, precise calculus text with superior applications defined the modern-day, three-semester or four-quarter calculus course. The ninth edition of this proven text has been carefully revised to give students the solid base of material they will need to succeed in math, science, and engineering programs. This edition includes recent innovations in teaching and learning that involve technology, projects, and group work.
While theoretical particle physics is an extraordinarily fascinating field, the incredibly fast pace at which it moves along, combined with the huge amount of background information necessary to perform cutting edge research, poses a formidable challenge for graduate students. This book represents the first in a series designed to assist students in the process of transitioning from coursework to research in particle physics. Rather than reading... more...
This text explains the features of quantum and statistical field systems that result from their field-theoretic nature and are common to different physical contexts. It supplies the practical tools for carrying out calculations and discusses the meaning of the results. The central concept is that of effective action (or free energy), and the main technical tool is the path integral, although other formalisms are also mentioned. The author emphasizes... more...
This third volume completes the Work Mechanical Systems, Classical Models. The first two volumes dealt with particle dynamics and with discrete and continuous mechanical systems. The present volume studies analytical mechanics. Topics such as Lagrangian and Hamiltonian mechanics, the Hamilton-Jacobi method, and a study of systems with separate variables are thoroughly discussed. Also included are variational principles and canonical transformations,... more...
