Handbook of Writing for the Mathematical Sciences provides advice on all aspects of scientific writing, with a particular focus on writing mathematics. Its readable style and handy format, coupled with an extensive bibliography and comprehensive index, make it useful for everyone from undergraduates to seasoned professionals. This third edition revises, updates, and expands the best-selling second edition to reflect modern writing and publishing practices and builds on the author's extensive experience in writing and speaking about mathematics. Some of its key features include coverage of fundamentals of writing, including English usage, revising a draft, and writing when your first language is not English; thorough treatment of mathematical writing, including how to choose notation, how to choose between words and symbols, and how to format equations; and many tips for exploiting LaTeX and BibTeX. Higham also provides advice on how to write and publish a paper, covering the entire publication process, and includes anecdotes, quotes, and unusual facts that enliven the presentation. The new edition has been reorganized to make the book easier to use for reference; treats modern developments in publishing such as open access, DOIs, and ORCID; and contains more on poster design, including e-posters and the poster blitz. The new edition also includes five new chapters on the following topics: · workflow covering text editors, markup languages, version control, and much more; · the principles of indexing and how to prepare an index in LaTeX; · reviewing a paper, book proposal, or book; · writing a book, including advice on choosing a publisher and LaTeX tips particular to books; and · writing a blog post.

MATLAB is an interactive system for numerical computation that is widely used for teaching and research in industry and academia. It provides a modern programming language and problem solving environment, with powerful data structures, customizable graphics, and easy-to-use editing and debugging tools. This third edition of MATLAB Guide completely revises and updates the best-selling second edition and is more than 30 percent longer. The book remains a lively, concise introduction to the most popular and important features of MATLAB and the Symbolic Math Toolbox. Key features are a tutorial in Chapter 1 that gives a hands-on overview of MATLAB; a thorough treatment of MATLAB mathematics, including the linear algebra and numerical analysis functions and the differential equation solvers; and a web page at http://www.siam.org/books/ot150 that provides example program files, updates, and links to MATLAB resources. The new edition contains color figures throughout; includes pithy discussions of related topics in new ?Asides" boxes that augment the text; has new chapters on the Parallel Computing Toolbox, object-oriented programming, graphs, and large data sets; covers important new MATLAB data types such as categorical arrays, string arrays, tall arrays, tables, and timetables; contains more on MATLAB workflow, including the Live Editor and unit tests; and fully reflects major updates to the MATLAB graphics system. This book is suitable for both beginners and more experienced users, including students, researchers, and practitioners.

Exploratory Data Analysis Using R provides a classroom-tested introduction to exploratory data analysis (EDA) and introduces the range of "interesting" – good, bad, and ugly – features that can be found in data, and why it is important to find them. It also introduces the mechanics of using R to explore and explain data. The book begins with a detailed overview of data, exploratory analysis, and R, as well as graphics in R. It then explores working with external data, linear regression models, and crafting data stories. The second part of the book focuses on developing R programs, including good programming practices and examples, working with text data, and general predictive models. The book ends with a chapter on "keeping it all together" that includes managing the R installation, managing files, documenting, and an introduction to reproducible computing. The book is designed for both advanced undergraduate, entry-level graduate students, and working professionals with little to no prior exposure to data analysis, modeling, statistics, or programming. it keeps the treatment relatively non-mathematical, even though data analysis is an inherently mathematical subject. Exercises are included at the end of most chapters, and an instructor's solution manual is available. About the Author: Ronald K. Pearson holds the position of Senior Data Scientist with GeoVera, a property insurance company in Fairfield, California, and he has previously held similar positions in a variety of application areas, including software development, drug safety data analysis, and the analysis of industrial process data. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and has published conference and journal papers on topics ranging from nonlinear dynamic model structure selection to the problems of disguised missing data in predictive modeling. Dr. Pearson has authored or co-authored books including Exploring Data in Engineering, the Sciences, and Medicine (Oxford University Press, 2011) and Nonlinear Digital Filtering with Python. He is also the developer of the DataCamp course on base R graphics and is an author of the datarobot and GoodmanKruskal R packages available from CRAN (the Comprehensive R Archive Network).
