Important though the general concepts and propositions may be with which the modem and industrious passion for axiomatizing and generalizing has presented us, in algebra perhaps more than anywhere else, nevertheless I am convinced that the special problems in all their complexity constitute the stock and core of mathematics, and that to master their difficulties requires on the whole the harder labor. HERMANN WEYL Die Arbeit an diesem Buch begann vor etwa zwanzig Jahren mit Aufzeichnungen zur Ergänzung meiner Algebravorlesungen. Ich wollte einige konkrete Themen, wie Symmetrie, lineare Gruppen und quadratische Zahlkörper, ausführlicher be­ handeln als dies im vorgesehenen Text der Fall war, und darüberhinaus wollte ich den Schwerpunkt in der Gruppentheorie von den Permutationsgruppen auf Matrixgruppen verlagern. Ein anderes ständig wiederkehrendes Thema, nämlich Gitter, sind spontan aufgetaucht. Ich hoffte, der konkrete Stoff könne das Interesse der Studenten wecken und gleichzeitig die Abstraktionen verständlicher machen, kurz gesagt, sie sollten weiter kommen, indem sie beides gleichzeitig lernten. Das bewährte sich gut. Es dauerte einige Zeit, bis ich entschieden hatte, welche Themen ich behandeln wollte, und allmählich verteilte ich mehr und mehr Aufzeichnungen und ging schließlich dazu über, die ganze Vorlesung mit diesem Skript zu bestrei­ ten. Auf diese Weise ist ein Buch entstanden, das, wie ich meine, etwas anders ist als die existierenden Bücher. Allerdings haben mir die Probleme, die ich damit hatte, die einzelnen Teile des Buches zu einem Ganzen zusammenzufügen, einige Kopfschmerzen bereitet; ich kann also nicht empfehlen, auf diese Art anzufangen, ein Buch zu schreiben.

John Hospers' Introduction to Philosophical Analysis has sold over 150,000 copies since its first publication. This new edition ensures that its success will continue into the twenty-first century. It remains the most accessible and authoritative introduction to philosophy available using the full power of the problem-based approach to the area to ensure that philosophy is not simply taught to students but practised by them. The most significant change to this edition is to respond to criticisms regarding the omission in the third edition of the famous opening chapter. A brand new chapter, Words and the World, replaces this in the fourth edition - which now features a large number of examples and illustrative dialogues. The rest of the text has been thoroughly revised and updated to take account of recent developments in some areas of philosophy.

More tables of assumptions and the effects of their violation including how to test them in SPSS. 33% new conceptual, computational, and all new interpretative problems. A website that features PowerPoint slides, answers to the even-numbered problems, and test items for instructors, and for students the chapter outlines, key concepts, and datasets that can be used in SPSS and other packages, and more. Each chapter begins with an outline, a list of key concepts, and a vignette related to those concepts. Realistic examples from education and the behavioral sciences illustrate those concepts. Each example examines the procedures and assumptions and provides instructions for how to run SPSS, including annotated output, and tips to develop an APA style write-up. Useful tables of assumptions and the effects of their violation are included, along with how to test assumptions in SPSS. 'Stop and Think' boxes provide helpful tips for better understanding the concepts. Each chapter includes computational, conceptual, and interpretive problems. The data sets used in the examples and problems are provided on the web. Answers to the odd-numbered problems are given in the book. The first five chapters review descriptive statistics including ways of representing data graphically, statistical measures, the normal distribution, and probability and sampling. The remainder of the text covers inferential statistics involving means, proportions, variances, and correlations, basic and advanced analysis of variance and regression models. Topics not dealt with in other texts such as robust methods, multiple comparison and nonparametric procedures, and advanced ANOVA and multiple and logistic regression models are also reviewed. Intended for one- or two-semester courses in statistics taught in education and/or the behavioral sciences at the graduate and/or advanced undergraduate level, knowledge of statistics is not a prerequisite. A rudimentary knowledge of algebra is required.

Der vorliegende dritte Band beschlieBt unsere EinfUhrung in die Analysis, mit der wir ein Fundament fUr den weiteren Aufbau des Mathematikstudiums gelegt haben. Wie schon in den ersten beiden Teilen haben wir auch hier wesentlich mehr Stoff behandelt, als dies in einem Kurs geschehen kann. Bei der Vorbereitung von Vorlesungen ist deshalb eine geeignete Stoffauswahl zu treffen, auch wenn die Lehrveranstaltungen durch Seminare erganzt und vertieft werden. Anhand der ausfiihrlichen Inhaltsangabe und der Einleitungen zu den einzelnen Kapiteln kann ein rascher Uberblick Uber den dargebotenen Stoff gewonnen werden. Das Buch ist insbesondere auch als BegleitlektUre zu Vorlesungen und fUr das Selbststudium geeignet. Die zahlreichen Ausblicke auf weiterfUhrende Theorien sollen Neugierde wecken und dazu animieren, im Verlaufe des weiteren Studiums tiefer einzudringen und mehr von der Schonheit und GroBe des mathematischen Gebaudes zu erfahren. Beim Verfassen dieses Bandes konnten wir wieder auf die unschatzbare Hil fe von Freunden, Kollegen, Mitarbeitern und Studenten ziihlen. Ganz besonders danken wir Georg Prokert, Pavol Quittner, Olivier Steiger und Christoph Wal ker, die den gesamten Text kritisch durchgearbeitet und uns so geholfen haben, Fehler zu eliminieren und substantielle Verbesserungen anzubringen. Unser Dank gilt auch Carlheinz Kneisel und Bea Wollenmann, die ebenfalls groBere Teile des Manuskripts gelesen und uns auf Ungereimtheiten hingewiesen haben.

Significant advances in DNA analysis techniques have surfaced since the 1997 publication of the bestselling An Introduction to Forensic DNA Analysis. DNA typing has become increasingly automated and miniaturized. Also, with the advent of Short Tandem Repeat (STR) technology, even the most minute sample of degraded DNA can yield a profile, providing valuable case information. However, just as the judicial system slowly and reluctantly accepted RFLP and AmpliType® PM+DQA1 typing, it is now scrutinizing the admissibility of STRs. Acknowledging STR typing as the current system of choice, An Introduction to Forensic DNA Analysis, Second Edition translates new and established concepts into plain English so that laypeople can gain insight into how DNA analysis works, from sample collection to interpretation of results. In response to the shift toward more efficient techniques, the authors cover the legal admissibility of STR typing, expand the chapter on DNA databases, and revise the section on automated analysis. They also present key decisions and appellate or supreme court rulings that provide precedent at the state and federal levels. Discussing forensic DNA issues from both a scientific and a legal perspective, the authors of An Introduction to Forensic DNA Analysis, Second Edition present the material in a manner understandable by professionals in the legal system, law enforcement, and forensic science. They cover general principles in a clear fashion and include a glossary of terms and other useful appendices for easy reference.

Dies ist der erste Band einer auf drei Bände angelegten Einführung in die reelle Analysis. Sie soll etwa den Stoff der an den Universitäten der Bundesrepublik Deutsch land üblichen dreisemestrigen einführenden Vorlesung umfassen. Ich habe diese Vor lesung viele Male gehalten. Die Darstellung des Buches ist verhältnismäßig kurz und von konzentrierter Diktion. Das Werk wird aber hinreichend umfassend sein, um als Fundament für das Gesamtgebäude der Analysis dienen zu können. Struktur und Stoffauswahl sind durch meine eigenen Arbeiten wesentlich mitbeeinflußt. Der erste Band umfaßt die Grenzwerttheorie und die Differential- und Integral rechnung für Funktionen einer reellen Veränderlichen. Er weist gegenüber den vor liegenden Darstellungen mehrere Besonderheiten auf. 1) Die Begriffe Limes inferior und Limes superior, die in praktisch allen einführenden Lehrbüchern nur für reelle Zahlenfolgen definiert werden, dienen auch bei den reellen Funktionen einer reellen Veränderlichen als Fundament der Grenzwerttheorie. Der Limes superior wird syste matisch zum Beweis von Grenzwertaussagen verwendet. Es ist den in der Analysis arbeitenden Forschern geläufig, daß diese Technik besonders kurze und übersichtliche Schlußweisen erlaubt. 2) Der Ideenkreis des Mittelwertsatzes der Differentialrechnung wird vollkommen neu dargestellt, und es wird mit besonderem Gewicht der Einsatz der Differentiation zum Gewinnen von Ungleichungen betrieben. 3) Das Buch entwickelt ausführlich das in der Analysis viel benutzte elementare Stieltjes-Integral, und zwar in einer die komplexwertigen Funktionen und damit die Kurvenintegrale der komplexen Analysis umfassenden Version. 4) Es finden sich viele neue Übungsaufgaben.

Der "Cormen" bietet eine umfassende und vielseitige Einführung in das moderne Studium von Algorithmen. Es stellt viele Algorithmen Schritt für Schritt vor, behandelt sie detailliert und macht deren Entwurf und deren Analyse allen Leserschichten zugänglich. Sorgfältige Erklärungen zur notwendigen Mathematik helfen, die Analyse der Algorithmen zu verstehen. Den Autoren ist es dabei geglückt, Erklärungen elementar zu halten, ohne auf Tiefe oder mathematische Exaktheit zu verzichten. Jedes der weitgehend eigenständig gestalteten Kapitel stellt einen Algorithmus, eine Entwurfstechnik, ein Anwendungsgebiet oder ein verwandtes Thema vor. Algorithmen werden beschrieben und in Pseudocode entworfen, der für jeden lesbar sein sollte, der schon selbst ein wenig programmiert hat. Zahlreiche Abbildungen verdeutlichen, wie die Algorithmen arbeiten. Ebenfalls angesprochen werden Belange der Implementierung und andere technische Fragen, wobei, da Effizienz als Entwurfskriterium betont wird, die Ausführungen eine sorgfältige Analyse der Laufzeiten der Programme mit ein schließen. Über 1000 Übungen und Problemstellungen und ein umfangreiches Quellen- und Literaturverzeichnis komplettieren das Lehrbuch, dass durch das ganze Studium, aber auch noch danach als mathematisches Nachschlagewerk oder als technisches Handbuch nützlich ist. Für die dritte Auflage wurde das gesamte Buch aktualisiert. Die Änderungen sind vielfältig und umfassen insbesondere neue Kapitel, überarbeiteten Pseudocode, didaktische Verbesserungen und einen lebhafteren Schreibstil. So wurden etwa - neue Kapitel zu van-Emde-Boas-Bäume und mehrfädigen (engl.: multithreaded) Algorithmen aufgenommen, - das Kapitel zu Rekursionsgleichungen überarbeitet, sodass es nunmehr die Teile-und-Beherrsche-Methode besser abdeckt, - die Betrachtungen zu dynamischer Programmierung und Greedy-Algorithmen überarbeitet; Memoisation und der Begriff des Teilproblem-Graphen als eine Möglichkeit, die Laufzeit eines auf dynamischer Programmierung beruhender Algorithmus zu verstehen, werden eingeführt. - 100 neue Übungsaufgaben und 28 neue Problemstellungen ergänzt. Umfangreiches Dozentenmaterial (auf englisch) ist über die Website des US-Verlags verfügbar.

Aus den Besprechungen: "Wodurch unterscheidet sich das hiermit begonnene Lehrwerk der Analysis von zahlreichen anderen, zum Teil im gleichen Verlag erschienenen, exzellenten Werken dieser Art? Mehreres ist zu nennen: (1) die ausführliche Berücksichtigung des Warum und Woher, der historischen Gesichtspunkte also, die in unserem von der Ratio geprägten Zeitalter ohnehin immer zu kurz kommen; (2) die Anerkennung der Existenz des Computers. Der Autor verschließt sich nicht vor der Tatsache, daß die Computermathematik (hier vor allem verstanden als numerische Mathematik) oft interessante Anwendungen der klassischen Analysis bietet. Als weitere attraktive Merkmale des Buches nennen wir (3) die große Fülle von Beispielen und nicht-trivialen (aber lösbaren) Übungsaufgaben, sowie (4) der häufige Bezug zu den Anwendungen. Man denke: Sogar die Theorie der gewöhnlichen Differentialgleichungen, vor der manche Lehrbuchautoren eine unüberwindliche Scheu zu haben scheinen, ist gut lesbar dargestellt, mit vernünftigen Anwendungen. Alles in Allem kann das Buch jedem Studierenden der Mathematik wegen der Fülle des Gebotenen und wegen des geschickten didaktischen Aufbaus auf das Wärmste empfohlen werden." ZAMP #1
