Título : 40 Puzzles and Problems in Probability and Mathematical Statistics Tipo de documento: documento electrónico Autores: Schwarz, Wolfgang ; SpringerLink (Online service) Editorial: New York, NY : Springer New York Fecha de publicación: 2008 Colección: Problem Books in Mathematics, ISSN 0941-3502 Número de páginas: XII, 124 p. 29 illus Il.: online resource ISBN/ISSN/DL: 978-0-387-73512-2 Idioma : Inglés ( eng)Palabras clave: Mathematics Probabilities Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes Clasificación: 51 Matemáticas Resumen: "40 Puzzles and Problems in Probability and Mathematical Statistics" is intended to teach the reader to think probabilistically by solving challenging, non-standard probability problems. The motivation for this clearly written collection lies in the belief that challenging problems help to develop, and to sharpen, our probabilistic intuition much better than plain-style deductions from abstract concepts. The selected problems fall into two broad categories. Problems related to probability theory come first, followed by problems related to the application of probability to the field of mathematical statistics. All problems seek to convey a non-standard aspect or an approach which is not immediately obvious. The word puzzles in the title refers to questions in which some qualitative, non-technical insight is most important. Ideally, puzzles can teach a productive new way of framing or representing a given situation. Although the border between the two is not always clearly defined, problems tend to require a more systematic application of formal tools, and to stress more technical aspects. Thus, a major aim of the present collection is to bridge the gap between introductory texts and rigorous state-of-the-art books. Anyone with a basic knowledge of probability, calculus and statistics will benefit from this book; however, many of the problems collected require little more than elementary probability and straight logical reasoning. To assist anyone using this book for self-study, the author has included very detailed step-for-step solutions of all problems and also short hints which point the reader in the appropriate direction Nota de contenido: Preface -- Notation and Terminology -- Problems -- Hints -- Solutions -- References -- Index En línea: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-0-387-73512-2 Link: https://biblioteca.cunef.edu/gestion/catalogo/index.php?lvl=notice_display&id=34181 40 Puzzles and Problems in Probability and Mathematical Statistics [documento electrónico] / Schwarz, Wolfgang ; SpringerLink (Online service) . - New York, NY : Springer New York, 2008 . - XII, 124 p. 29 illus : online resource. - (Problem Books in Mathematics, ISSN 0941-3502) .ISBN: 978-0-387-73512-2

Título : Abstract Algebra Tipo de documento: documento electrónico Autores: Grillet, Pierre Antoine ; SpringerLink (Online service) Editorial: New York, NY : Springer New York Fecha de publicación: 2007 Colección: Graduate Texts in Mathematics, ISSN 0072-5285 num. 242 Número de páginas: XII, 674 p Il.: online resource ISBN/ISSN/DL: 978-0-387-71568-1 Idioma : Inglés ( eng)Palabras clave: Mathematics Algebra Associative rings Rings (Algebra) Group theory and Algebras Theory Generalizations Clasificación: 51 Matemáticas Resumen: "Abstract Algebra" is a clearly written, self-contained basic algebra text for graduate students, with a generous amount of additional material that suggests the scope of contemporary algebra. The first chapters blend standard contents with a careful introduction to proofs with arrows. The last chapters, on universal algebras and categories, including tripleability, give valuable general views of algebra. There are over 1400 exercises, at varying degrees of difficulty. For the new edition, the author has completely rewritten the entire text, streamlining the first chapters for rapid access to Galois theory, removing some material, and adding introductions to Groebner bases, Ext and Tor, and other topics. From a review of the First Edition: ...combines an exceptionally accessible discussion of the basic material with a just as thorough and well-organized treatment of the many additional (advanced) topics included.... represents an outstanding introduction to modern abstract algebra as a whole, with many unique features. It captivates the reader by its remarkable diversity, comprehensiveness, elegant succinctness, and coherence. - Werner Kleinert, Zentralblatt Nota de contenido: Groups -- Structure of Groups -- Rings -- Field Extensions -- Galois Theory -- Fields with Orders or Valuations -- Commutative Rings -- Modules -- Semisimple Rings and Modules -- Projectives and Injectives -- Constructions -- Ext and Tor -- Algebras -- Lattices -- Universal Algebra -- Categories En línea: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-0-387-71568-1 Link: https://biblioteca.cunef.edu/gestion/catalogo/index.php?lvl=notice_display&id=34527 Abstract Algebra [documento electrónico] / Grillet, Pierre Antoine ; SpringerLink (Online service) . - New York, NY : Springer New York, 2007 . - XII, 674 p : online resource. - (Graduate Texts in Mathematics, ISSN 0072-5285; 242) .ISBN: 978-0-387-71568-1

Título : Accounting Information and Equity Valuation : Theory, Evidence, and Applications Tipo de documento: documento electrónico Autores: Zhang, Guochang ; SpringerLink (Online service) Editorial: New York, NY : Springer New York Fecha de publicación: 2014 Otro editor: Imprint: Springer Colección: Springer Series in Accounting Scholarship, ISSN 1572-0284 num. 6 Número de páginas: XXIV, 233 p. 13 illus Il.: online resource ISBN/ISSN/DL: 978-1-4614-8160-7 Idioma : Inglés ( eng)Palabras clave: Business Accounting Bookkeeping Finance and Management Accounting/Auditing Finance, general Clasificación: 657.92 Valoración. Técnica de la estimación y evaluación Resumen: The purpose of this book is to offer a more systematic and structured treatment of the research on accounting-based valuation, with a primary focus on recent theoretical developments and the resulting empirical analyses that recognize the role of accounting information in making managerial decisions. Since its inception, valuation research in accounting has evolved primarily along an “empirically driven” path. In the absence of models constructed specifically to explain this topic, researchers have relied on economic intuition and theories from other disciplines (mainly finance and economics) as a basis for designing empirical analyses and interpreting findings. Although this literature has shed important light on the usefulness of accounting information in capital markets, it is obvious that the lack of a rigorous theoretical framework has hindered the establishment of a systematic and well-structured literature and made it difficult to probe valuation issues in depth. More recently, however, progress has been made on the theoretical front. The two most prominent frameworks are (i) the “linear information dynamic approach” and (ii) the “real options-based approach” which recognizes managerial uses of accounting information in the pursuit of value generation. This volume devotes its initial chapters to an evaluation of the models using the linear dynamic approach, and then provides a synthesis of the theoretical studies that adopt the real options approach and the empirical works which draw on them. The book also makes an attempt to revisit and critique existing empirical research (value-relevance and earnings-response studies) within the real options-based framework. It is hoped that the book can heighten interest in integrating theoretical and empirical research in this field, and play a role in helping this literature develop into a more structured and cohesive body of work. Value is of ultimate concern to economic decision-makers, and valuation theory should serve as a platform for studying other accounting topics. The book ends with a call for increased links of other areas of accounting research to valuation theory Nota de contenido: Chapter 1 Value Concept and Accounting Measures of Value Generation: The Residual Income Model -- Chapter 2 Mapping Accounting Data to Value via Linear Information Dynamics: the Early Approach -- Chapter 3 Capital Following Profitability: Why the Residual Income Dynamic is Nonlinear -- Chapter 4 A Basic Model of Equity Value: Incorporating Growth and Abandonment Options -- Chapter 5 Testing the Properties of the ROM -- Chapter 6 Casting Theoretical Light on the Empirical Valuation Literature -- Chapter 7 Valuing Multiple-segment Firms: How Segment-level Data are Incrementally Relevant -- Chapter 8 A Valuation-based Theory of Corporate Divestiture: Why Financial Reporting May Fail to Resolve Information Asymmetries -- Chapter 9 Accounting Information and Equity Returns: A Derivative of the Value Function -- Chapter 10 An Evaluation of the Return-Earnings Research -- Chapter 11 Fair Value Accounting and Income Measurement: An Application to Standard Setting -- Chapter 12 Interpreting Financial Information in an Industry Context -- Chapter 13 Limitations and Future Directions En línea: http://dx.doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4614-8160-7 Link: https://biblioteca.cunef.edu/gestion/catalogo/index.php?lvl=notice_display&id=35912 Accounting Information and Equity Valuation : Theory, Evidence, and Applications [documento electrónico] / Zhang, Guochang ; SpringerLink (Online service) . - New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer, 2014 . - XXIV, 233 p. 13 illus : online resource. - (Springer Series in Accounting Scholarship, ISSN 1572-0284; 6) .ISBN: 978-1-4614-8160-7
