An Introduction to Calculating Areas: A Micro E-book: with Question and answers

Calculation of Areas is an important subject. It has applications in both the theoretical and practical problems. This text is a starting key stone in this subject matter. The purpose of this work is to introduce the basic calculations of areas by using measurement and simple formulas.

The only prerequisite is that the learner is familiar with units of measurements, and very basic arithmetic operations. This level of work is not uncommon at primary school level or the junior years of secondary school. Regardless of the audience, the subject matter is relevant to anyone who is required to work with regular shapes and their areas.

Let us take some practical example. A person planning on laying regular shaped tiles on a kitchen wall may need to know the area that the ties need to cover so that they can get sufficient tiles to complete the required space. Another example could be while selling property. The seller may measure and calculate the floor space of the property for sale. Most homes and rooms inside home are of some regular shape. In most cases this is often square or rectangular. Having read and understood this work the student will be able to attempt to solve such problems with relative accuracy.

Finally at this time it is my intention is to write a second text, following this. The subject matter for that will be the calculation of volumes. Calculation of volumes is very closely related to this topic so it the natural progression on wards.

Quantization on Nilpotent Lie Groups (Progress in Mathematics)

This book presents a consistent development of the Kohn-Nirenberg type global quantization theory in the setting of graded nilpotent Lie groups in terms of their representations. It contains a detailed exposition of related background topics on homogeneous Lie groups, nilpotent Lie groups, and the analysis of Rockland operators on graded Lie groups together with their associated Sobolev spaces. For the specific example of the Heisenberg group the theory is illustrated in detail. In addition, the book features a brief account of the corresponding quantization theory in the setting of compact Lie groups. The monograph is the winner of the 2014 Ferran Sunyer i Balaguer Prize.

Ship and Offshore Structure Design in Climate Change Perspective (SpringerBriefs in Climate Studies)

This book summarizes results of longstanding research and scientific contributions from many projects and relevant working groups. It collects and evaluates wind and wave climate projections under changing climate having design needs and marine safety in focus. Potential impact of projected climate change in met-ocean conditions on ships and offshore structures is discussed and illustrated by an example of the expected wave climate change on tanker design. The monograph is intended for students, researchers and industry based engineers who want a summary of the many studies that have been carried out on climate change effects on wind and waves and their importance for design and operations of ship and offshore structures. The reader needs only a moderate knowledge of marine wind and wave climate to follow the text.

Thirty Years with Stata: A Retrospective

This volume is a sometimes serious and sometimes whimsical retrospective of Stata, its development, and its use over the last 30 years. The view from the inside opens with an essay by Bill Gould, Stata's president and cofounder, that discusses the challenges and concepts that guided the design and implementation of Stata. This is followed by an interview of Bill by Joe Newton that discusses Bill's early interest in computing, his early work on a program for matching prom dates in the days when you had to purchase time on computers, and further exploration of the guiding principles behind Stata. Finally, Sean Becketti, Stata's first employee, delves into the not-to-be-missed culture of Stata in its infancy. The view from the outside comprises 14 essays by prominent researchers and members of the Stata community. Most discuss Stata's use and evolution in disciplines such as behavioral sciences, business, economics, epidemiology, time series, political science, public health, public policy, veterinary epidemiology, and statistics. Some take a sweeping overview. Others are more intimate personal recollections. Mostly, we simply wanted to celebrate the relationship between Stata users and Stata software. We hope that this volume holds something interesting for everyone.
