  • Publisher: CRC Press

Compositional Data Analysis in Practice is a user-oriented practical guide to the analysis of data with the property of a constant sum, for example percentages adding up to 100%. Compositional data can give misleading results if regular statistical methods are applied, and are best analysed by first transforming them to logarithms of ratios. This book explains how this transformation affects the analysis, results and interpretation of this very special type of data. All aspects of compositional data analysis are considered: visualization, modelling, dimension-reduction, clustering and variable selection, with many examples in the fields of food science, archaeology, sociology and biochemistr...

"This book is a great way to both start learning data science through the promising Julia language and to become an efficient data scientist."- Professor Charles Bouveyron, INRIA Chair in Data Science, Université Côte d’Azur, Nice, France Julia, an open-source programming language, was created to be as easy to use as languages such as R and Python while also as fast as C and Fortran. An accessible, intuitive, and highly efficient base language with speed that exceeds R and Python, makes Julia a formidable language for data science. Using well known data science methods that will motivate the reader, Data Science with Julia will get readers up to speed on key features of the Julia languag...

The First Book to Explain How a User of R or MATLAB Can Benefit from the Other In today’s increasingly interdisciplinary world, R and MATLAB® users from different backgrounds must often work together and share code. R and MATLAB® is designed for users who already know R or MATLAB and now need to learn the other platform. The book makes the transition from one platform to the other as quick and painless as possible. Enables R and MATLAB Users to Easily Collaborate and Share Code The author covers essential tasks, such as working with matrices and vectors, writing functions and other programming concepts, graphics, numerical computing, and file input/output. He highlights important differences between the two platforms and explores common mistakes that are easy to make when transitioning from one platform to the other.

Handbook of Mixture Analysis

Mixture analysis is very active research topic in statistics and machine learning. It is a good timing for a Handbook to present a broad overview of the methods and applications, suitable for graduate students and young researchers new to the field. This Handbook is divided into two main parts; the first part covers all the methods, with illustrative examples and guidance on computing where appropriate; and the second part includes some more advanced methodological topics, and a series of case studies presenting applications of mixture analysis in a number of fields, including genomics, medicine, economics, finance and more.

Dietary supplement companies and the food industry spend millions to reach resistance trainers—often with exaggerated marketing messages—while health practitioners continue to counsel athletes that their interest in protein is misguided and even dangerous. There appears to be a disconnect between scientists and almost everyone else in sports nutrition. With so much conflicting information, it’s difficult to know who to believe. With contributions from the world’s foremost experts, Dietary Protein and Resistance Exercise delivers the uncut scientific truth about the role of dietary protein in the well-being of athletes. Updating and clarifying the issues surrounding purposeful protein...

Climate is a soil-forming factor and soil can mitigate climate change through a reduction in the emissions of greenhouse gases and sequestration of atmospheric CO2. Thus, there is a growing interest in soil management practices capable of mitigating climate change and enhancing environmental quality. Soil and Climate addresses global issues through soil management and outlines strategies for advancing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Special topics on soil as a source or sink of CO2, silicate weathering and carbon sequestration, nutrients required for carbon sequestration, physical protection and the mean resident time, and predicting soil carbon stocks are discussed in detail throughout the book.
