This book provides a clear and thorough introduction to meta-analysis, the process of synthesizing data from a series of separate studies. Meta-analysis has become a critically important tool in fields as diverse as medicine, pharmacology, epidemiology, education, psychology, business, and ecology. "Introduction to Meta-Analysis" Outlines the role of meta-analysis in the research processShows how to compute effects sizes and treatment effectsExplains the fixed-effect and random-effects models for synthesizing dataDemonstrates how to assess and interpret variation in effect size across studiesClarifies concepts using text and figures, followed by formulas and examplesExplains how to avoid common mistakes in meta-analysisDiscusses controversies in meta-analysisFeatures a web site with additional material and exercises

"A superb combination of lucid prose and informative graphics, written by four of the world's" "leading experts on all aspects of meta-analysis. Borenstein, Hedges, Higgins, and Rothstein" "provide a refreshing departure from cookbook approaches with their clear explanations of" "the what and why of meta-analysis. The book is ideal as a course textbook or for self-study." "My students, who used pre-publication versions of some of the chapters, raved about the" "clarity of the explanations and examples." David Rindskopf, Distinguished Professor of Educational Psychology, City University of New York, Graduate School and University Center, & Editor of the Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics.""

"The approach taken by" Introduction to Meta-analysis "is intended to be primarily conceptual, " "and it is amazingly successful at achieving that goal. The reader can comfortably skip the" "formulas and still understand their application and underlying motivation. For the more" "statistically sophisticated reader, the relevant formulas and worked examples provide a superb" "practical guide to performing a meta-analysis. The book provides an eclectic mix of examples" "from education, social science, biomedical studies, and even ecology. For anyone considering" "leading a course in meta-analysis, or pursuing self-directed study, Introduction to" "Meta-analysis would be a clear first choice." Jesse A. Berlin, ScD

Introduction to Meta-Analysis "is an excellent resource for novices and experts alike.

Differential Equations (Paperback, Dover): F.G. Tricomi Differential Equations (Paperback, Dover)
F.G. Tricomi; Translated by Elizabeth A McHarg
R383 R309 Discovery Miles 3 090 Save R74 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Based on his extensive experience as an educator, F. G. Tricomi wrote this practical and concise teaching text to offer a clear idea of the problems and methods of the theory of differential equations. The treatment is geared toward advanced undergraduates and graduate students and addresses only questions that can be resolved with rigor and simplicity.
Starting with a consideration of the existence and uniqueness theorem, the text advances to the behavior of the characteristics of a first-order equation, boundary problems for second-order linear equations, asymptotic methods, and differential equations in the complex field. The author discusses only ordinary differential equations, excluding coverage of the methods of integration and stressing the importance of reading the properties of the integrals directly from the equations. An extensive bibliography and helpful indexes conclude the text.

Transfer Learning (Hardcover): Qiang Yang, Yu Zhang, Wenyuan Dai, Sinno Jialin Pan Transfer Learning (Hardcover)
Qiang Yang, Yu Zhang, Wenyuan Dai, Sinno Jialin Pan
R1,151 Discovery Miles 11 510 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Transfer learning deals with how systems can quickly adapt themselves to new situations, tasks and environments. It gives machine learning systems the ability to leverage auxiliary data and models to help solve target problems when there is only a small amount of data available. This makes such systems more reliable and robust, keeping the machine learning model faced with unforeseeable changes from deviating too much from expected performance. At an enterprise level, transfer learning allows knowledge to be reused so experience gained once can be repeatedly applied to the real world. For example, a pre-trained model that takes account of user privacy can be downloaded and adapted at the edge of a computer network. This self-contained, comprehensive reference text describes the standard algorithms and demonstrates how these are used in different transfer learning paradigms. It offers a solid grounding for newcomers as well as new insights for seasoned researchers and developers.
