Some commonly used conceptual modeling techniques and methods include; Data Flow Modeling, Entity Relationship Modeling, Event-Drive Process Chain, Joint Application Development, Place/Transition Net Modeling, State Transition Modeling, Object Role Modeling, and Unified Modeling Language (UML).< Less
Using Math to Defeat the Enemy: Combat Modeling for Simulation By Jeffrey Strickland
Paperback: List Price: $24.97 $23.72 | You Save: 5%
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book was written for the 2nd Annual Modeling and Simulation Summit, Pre-Conference Focus Day Workshop: Using Math to Defeat the Enemy: Combat Modeling for Simulation (Monday, August 29th... More > 2011). Although mathematics is key to combat model for simulation, this book provides just a cursory survey of mathematical model, and includes heuristics and other algorithms. The book covers behavior models, environmental models, communication models, target detection models, attrition model, entity and aggregate level models, and multi-resolution models. It provides examples of past and current model, simulations, and wargames to stimulate learning and discussion.< Less
Operations Research using Open-Source Tools By Jeffrey Strickland

In fact, all the graphs and plot in the book were generated with SCILAB and R. Code is provided for every example and solutions are available at the authors website. The book covers the typical topics in a one or two semester upper division undergrad program or can be used in a graduate level course.< Less
Logistic Regression Inside and Out By Jeffrey Strickland
Hardcover: List Price: $42.95 $32.21 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
If you have a yes or no question, then you can probably answer it with a logistic regression model. Logistic regression is most appropriate when the dependent variable has two possible outcomes. Will... More > customers respond to an offer or unsubscribe, will the enemy fight or flee, will subjects respond to treatment or grow ill, will livestock live or die? Yes or no? I am often asked if logistic regression is a machine learning algorithm. I say that it is not, for I can formulate it mathematically and solve it using matrix equations, for example. Its solution is derived deterministically, and estimation is performed mathematically, through optimization methods. The logit link functionis the mathematical expression—a nonlinear, exponential equation, and we transform it to a linear equation by applying the natural logarithm. Here we find mathematical modeling, probability, and statistics. Here I will take you on a journey into the art and science of predictive modeling using logistic regression, inside-and-out.< Less

This book is about Data Analytics. In that respect, it is like others. What distinguishes it from the rest is the variety of open-source tool applications. This book incorporates the use of R Studio,... More > Python, SAS Studio (University Edition), and KNIME. This book is also about manipulating Big Data. Apache Hadoop on Hortonworks Sandbox is introduced and we manage, move, handle, and transform data using Apache Hive, Apache Spark, MapReduce and TEZ, with terminal shell commands and Ambari. We show you how to set up a virtual machine in Microsoft Azure. We then use the data in later chapters for modeling. We cover Descriptive Modeling and Predictive. The content includes Support Vector Machines, Decision Tree learning, Random Forests, Naïve and Empirical Bayes, Gradient Boosting, Cluster Modeling, Generalized Linear Models, Logistic Regression, and Artificial Neural Networks. Every chapter includes completely worked examples using one or more open-source tools.< Less
Quantum Phaith By Jeffrey Strickland
eBook (PDF): $17.77
Typically, scientists try to prove/disprove Scripture, particularly as it relates Creation, then write books about their findings. Quantum Phaith is not one of those books. Instead, the author... More > accepts the Bible, a priori. It is a journey through quantum mechanics, chaos theory, and number theory. It is a journey through the author's faith and what he has discovered about science, and how his faith has been unshaken by science/mathematics. It examines the Creation story using the Inductive Method, and uses the results to support what scientists have discovered about the universe—the Bible is used as a 'science book', to explain science. What scientist discovered over centuries, and particularly within the last 100 years, about the universe was already contained in the Bible! It introduces pioneers such as Einstein. It uses characters such as Ian Malcolm (Jurassic Park) to weave its story. It draws analogies between quantum mechanics and the four horsemen of Revelation. It will certainly make you think.< Less

To Watch Over Them Day and Night By Jeffrey Strickland

I have been behind enemy lines. Once in a city in the middle of East Germany. Berlin was divided by a wall that to cross meant certain death. Now it is one thing to be behind enemy lines, but to live... More > there is another matter. Working behind enemy lines at least brings the hope of returning to friendly territory or overcoming the enemy completely. But the world we live in, even in America, we are smack dead center of enemy territory and the enemy isn’t going anywhere, at least not until the Lord comes back and kicks Lucifer's tail. That’s right, when your Christian children are at home, school, daycare, or VBS, they are in enemy territory, belonging to Lucifer. But, Israel was in the same boat, especially after Nehemiah returned to rebuild the destroyed vulnerable city of Jerusalem. And they all plotted together to come and fight against Jerusalem and to cause confusion in it. And we prayed to our God and set a guard as a protection against them day and night. Nehemiah 4:7-9 Now we set a guard.< Less
The Devil Did Not Make Me Do It By Jeffrey Strickland

Dr. Jeffrey Strickland is a mathematician who carefully calculates the measures of things, even to the extent of subatomic particles unseen by the naked eye. As he did with bosons and photons in... More > Quantum Phaith, he meticulously calculates the nature and impact of Lucifer, the fallen one. Taking a line from Flip Wilson's character, Geraldine Jones, Dr. Strickland proposes that we cannot blame all of our faults and failures on Satan. He suggests that by [sin] nature, we are perfectly capable of doing evil with no aid at all. For followers of Christ, Dr. Strickland affirms that the Devil is no match for the power of the Holy Spirit that indwells us. However, in order to be effective Christians, we must know our enemy and the environment that in which he operates. In "The Devil did not Make Me Do it," you will learn to discern between Lies of Lucifer and the Truth.< Less

Instead, the author... More > accepts the Word of God, a priori. Quantum Phaith is a journey through elementary quantum mechanics, chaos theory, number theory, and more. This is also a journey through the author’s faith and what he has discovered about science through it; his faith has been unshaken by science and mathematics. Quantum Phaith examines the Creation account, using the results to support what scientists have discovered about the universe. Their discoveries were already contained in the Bible! Quantum Phaith portrays God as perfect, His creation perfect in every regard. Imperfection was introduced by the Fall or Man. God is all-powerful, all-knowing, transcends time, space, and our understanding. God is order, and you will find that chaos contains unobservable order! Quantum Phaith will make you think. It may change your life.< Less
