Convex Optimization & Euclidean Distance Geometry By Jon Dattorro
Hardcover: $174.00
Ships in 6-8 business days.
Convex Analysis is the calculus of inequalities while Convex Optimization is its application. Analysis is inherently the domain of the mathematician while Optimization belongs to the engineer. In... More > layman’s terms, the mathematical science of Optimization is the study of how to make a good choice when confronted with conflicting requirements. The qualifier Convex means: when an optimal solution is found, then it is guaranteed to be a best solution; there is no better choice. As any Convex Optimization problem has geometric interpretation, this book is about Convex Optimization, convex geometry (with particular attention to distance geometry), and nonconvex, combinatorial, and geometrical problems that can be relaxed or transformed into convex problems. A virtual flood of new applications follows by epiphany that many problems, presumed nonconvex, can be so transformed. Color Hardcover< Less

Learning algorithms and statistical software, with applications to bioinformatics By Toby Dylan Hocking
Paperback: $50.00
Ships in 3-5 business days.
Toby Dylan Hocking's PhD thesis is divided into two parts: learning algorithms and statistical software. Algorithms for segmentation, clustering, and model selection are discussed in the first part,... More > and the second part explains how to implement several statistical software packages in the R language. The content, which includes 47 color figures, should be appreciated by a reader with a background in statistics, data analysis, machine learning, or programming.< Less
Large Scale Methods to Enumerate Extreme Rays and Elementary Modes (b/w print) By Marco Terzer
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Download immediately.
A major challenge in systems biology is to improve the understanding of complex metabolic networks. Here, we focus on structural analysis since it requires mainly reaction stoichiometries, in... More > contrary to detailed dynamic methods that are often limited by insufficient knowledge on mechanisms and parameters. Thermodynamic reaction constraints and the steady state assumption reduce the solution space for valid reaction fluxes to a convex polyhedral cone. Pathway analysis methods aim at finding a unique generating set for the flux cone---called extreme rays or elementary modes. We describe critical aspects for an efficient implementation of the double description method for large scale application. The efficiency of introduced techniques is demonstrated with large application examples from combinatorics and systems biology.< Less
