Mathematical Methods for Oceanographers: An Introduction by Edward A. Laws

By Edward A. Laws

Oceanography demands a large choice of mathematical and statistical options, and this available therapy presents the fundamentals each oceanographer must comprehend, together with
* sensible how one can take care of chemical, geological, and organic oceanographic information
* directions on detecting the lifestyles of styles in what seems to be noise
* various examples from the sector that spotlight the appliance of the equipment presented

Written by way of an oceanographer and in keeping with his winning direction on the college of Hawaii, the quantity is easily suited for a two-semester direction on the graduate point. The e-book experiences the mandatory calculus, clarifies statistical recommendations, and contains end-of-chapter difficulties that illustrate and extend a few of the issues. tips about utilizing MATLAB(r) software program in matrix operations supplement chapters that care for the formula of relationships by way of matrices.

the most physique of the textual content covers the particular tools of facing data--including least squares and linear regression, correlation features and research of variance, capability and mistake bounds, nonlinear innovations and weighted least squares, numerical integration, and different modeling ideas. in contrast to such a lot introductory texts, Mathematical equipment for Oceanographers discusses regression equipment in nice element, and contains an research of why sure equipment produce independent parameter estimates. eventually, the bankruptcy on time sequence research covers a space of specific curiosity to actual oceanographers.

the varied difficulties and suggestions incorporated within the booklet let readers to envision their knowing of techniques and methods in addition to their skill to use what they've got learned.

A must-read for college kids of oceanography, this text/reference can be important for execs within the box, in addition to for fisheries scientists, biologists, and people within the environmental sciences.

a scientific advent to the math oceanographers need

subject matters lined in Mathematical equipment for Oceanographers contain:
* A overview of the mandatory calculus
* version I linear regression
* Correlation research
* version II linear regression
* Polynomial curve becoming, linear a number of regression research, and nonlinear least squares
* Numerical integration
* field versions
* Time sequence analysis
