WILEY-INTERSCIENCE PAPERBACK SERIES

The Wiley-Interscience Paperback Series consists of selected books that have been made more accessible to consumers in an effort to increase global appeal and general circulation. With these new unabridged softcover volumes, Wiley hopes to extend the lives of these works by making them available to future generations of statisticians, mathematicians, and scientists.

" . . . [a] treasure house of material for students and teachers alike . . . can be dipped into regularly for inspiration and ideas. It deserves to become a classic."
?London Times Higher Education Supplement

"The author succeeds in his goal of serving the needs of the undergraduate population who want to see mathematics in action, and the mathematics used is extensive and provoking."
?SIAM Review

"Each chapter discusses a wealth of examples ranging from old standards . . . to novelty . . . each model is developed critically, analyzed critically, and assessed critically."
?Mathematical Reviews

A Concrete Approach to Mathematical Modelling provides in-depth and systematic coverage of the art and science of mathematical modelling. Dr. Mesterton-Gibbons shows how the modelling process works and includes fascinating examples from virtually every realm of human, machine, natural, and cosmic activity. Various models are found throughout the book, including how to determine how fast cars drive through a tunnel, how many workers industry should employ, the length of a supermarket checkout line, and more. With detailed explanations, exercises, and examples demonstrating real-life applications in diverse fields, this book is the ultimate guide for students and professionals in the social sciences, life sciences, engineering, statistics, economics, politics, business and management sciences, and every other discipline in which mathematical modelling plays a role.


Ocean Atmosphere Interaction And Climate Modeling

RRP $105.95

This 1995 text is addressed to advanced students in oceanography, meteorology and environmental sciences, as well as to professional researchers in these fields. It aims to acquaint them with advances in experimental and theoretical investigations of ocean-atmosphere interactions, a rapidly developing field in earth sciences. Particular attention is paid to the scope and perspectives for satellite measurements and mathematical modeling. Approaches to the construction of coupled ocean-atmosphere models (from the simplest one-dimensional to the most comprehensive three-dimensional ones) for the solution of key problems in climate theory are discussed in detail. Field measurements and the results of numerical climate simulations are presented, to help understand the variability arising from various natural and anthropogenic factors.


Modelling Of Chemical Wear

RRP $50.99

Modelling of Chemical Wear is a one-stop resource for students, researchers and professionals seeking quick and effective tribological evaluations of products which reduce environmental impact and energy efficiency. This book considers optimizing additive combinations by proper methodology, bridging the gap between theory and practice. It defines effective approaches to evaluate antiwear chemical additives commonly used in industry, enhancing the mapping ability of their performance to reduce the extent of full scale evaluations.

  • Provides full coverage of tribology in four concise chapters, including up-and-coming nano-level tribology and additive combination techniques
  • Offers effective empirical modelling of chemical wear, along with computer programs relevant to industry standards to help you improve your test methods.
  • Outlines effective methodology for optimization of additive packages, relevant to the present search for eco-friendly combinations.

By means of case studies in schools and hospitals, this text describes and evaluates the current issues faced by both education and health professionals. It argues that much can be learned by comparing the experiences of the two groups, and suggests ways in which education and health workers can respond positively to the changes of recent years to ensure that essential services are maintained and improved.


Longitudinal Structural Equation Modeling

RRP $420.99

This comprehensive resource reviews structural equation modeling (SEM) strategies for longitudinal data to help readers see which modeling options are available for which hypotheses. The author demonstrates how SEM is related to other longitudinal data techniques throughout. By exploring connections between models, readers gain a better understanding of when to choose one analysis over another. The book explores basic models to sophisticated ones including the statistical and conceptual underpinnings that are the building blocks of the analyses. Accessibly written, research examples from the behavioral and social sciences and results interpretations are provided throughout. The emphasis is on concepts and practical guidance for applied research rather than on mathematical proofs. New terms are highlighted and defined in the glossary. Figures are included for every model along with detailed discussions of model specification and implementation issues. Each chapter also includes examples of each model type, comment sections that provide practical guidance, model extensions, and recommended readings.

Highlights include:

  • Covers the major SEM approaches to longitudinal analysis in one resource.

  • Explores connections between longitudinal SEM models to enhance integration.

  • Numerous examples that help readers match research questions to appropriate analyses and interpret results.

  • Reviews practical issues related to model specification and estimation to reinforce connections.

  • Analyzes continuous and discrete (binary and ordinal) variables throughout for breadth not found in other sources.

  • Reviews key SEM concepts for those who need a refresher (Ch. 1).

  • Emphasizes how to apply and interpret each model through realistic data examples.

  • Provides the book's data sets at www.longitudinalsem.com along with the Mplus and R-lavaan syntax used to generate the results.

  • Introduces the LISREL notation system used throughout (Appendix A).

The chapters can be read out of order but it is best to read chapters 1 - 4 first because most of the later chapters refer back to them. The book opens with a review of latent variables and analysis of binary and ordinal variables. Chapter 2 applies this information to assessing longitudinal measurement invariance. SEM tests of dependent means and proportions over time points are explored in Chapter 3, and stability and change, difference scores, and lagged regression are covered in Chapter 4. The remaining chapters are each devoted to one major type of longitudinal SEM -- repeated measures analysis models, full cross-lagged panel models and simplex models, modeling stability with state-trait models, linearand nonlinear growth curve models, latent difference score models, latent transition analysis, time series analysis, survival analysis, and attrition. Missing data is discussed in the context of many of the preceding models in Chapter 13.

Ideal for graduate courses on longitudinal (data) analysis, advanced SEM, longitudinal SEM, and/or advanced data (quantitative) analysis taught in the behavioral, social, and health sciences, this text also appeals to researchers in these fields. Intended for those without an extensive math background, prerequisites include familiarity with basic SEM. Matrix algebra is avoided in all but a few places.
