This treatment of data was published independently in by the German polymath Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss, and the American mathematician Adrian, both of whom provided the bell-shaped curve as the representation of the Normal distribution of statistical variability. This approach evolved into the Law of Frequency of Errors as a consequence of the proof of the Central Limit Theorem provided a year later by Laplace Consequently the Law of Errors and the Normal distribution are consistent with the mechanical laws of motion formulated by Newton. These laws of motion predict certain outcomes for experiments; the measurements of those outcomes reveal a variation about the predicted value and the Normal distribution gives the degree of variability in the measurements about the predicted or average value. The narrower the bell-shaped curve the closer the measured value is to the predicted one. Put simply, the Normal distribution implies that there is a right answer to the question being experimentally asked. Thus, even through no theory of medicine existed at the time the average value was assumed to provide the predication of that theory if and when it would be formulated. Many phenomena are described by the Normal distribution or Normal statistics, but it is often forgotten that the measurement error in such phenomena must satisfy the four criteria of the Central Limit Theorem in order to be Normally distributed. Expressed in the language of the Law of Errors these criteria are: 1 the errors are independent; the error in a given experiment does not depend on the error in any other experiment; 2 the errors are additive; the total error made is the sum of the separate errors; 3 the statistics of each error is the same; the statistical process producing the error does not change from experiment to experiment; and 4 the width of the distribution is finite; the standard deviation converges to a finite value as the number of measured errors increases. These criteria are recorded here because complex medical phenomena often violate one or more of these conditions necessary to satisfy the mathematical proof of the Central Limit Theorem and it is here that the real world deviates from the expected variability imposed by Normal statistics West, There is a wide array of medical phenomena that manifest Normal statistics including height Quetelet, , birth weight O'Cathain et al. On the other hand, there is an even greater list of non-Normal statistical medical phenomena including heart rate variability Peng et al. It is the latter physiologic phenomena that we are interested in understanding and this requires the study of how the statistical properties modify our understanding.
PDEs and Boundary-Value Problems [AG Rjasanow]
In this book, there is a strong emphasis on application with the necessary mathematical grounding. There are plenty of worked examples with all solutions provided.
This enlarged new edition includes generalised Fourier series and a completely new chapter on wavelets. Only knowledge of elementary trigonometry and calculus are required as prerequisites. An Introduction to Laplace Transforms and Fourier Series will be useful for second and third year undergraduate students in engineering, physics or mathematics, as well as for graduates in any discipline such as financial mathematics, econometrics and biological modelling requiring techniques for solving initial value problems.
