https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13785
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=13785Created by Lewis Blake for the Connected Curriculum Project, the purposes of this module are to introduce the concepts of transition matrices and Markov chains; to provide motivation for the definition of matrix multiplication in the context of an interesting application; and to lay the groundwork for applied problems that can be solved later with eigenvalues and eigenvectors. This is part of a larger collection of learning modules hosted by Duke University.Tue, 1 Jun 2010 03:00:02 -0500Statistical Reference Datasets: Archives
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9081
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9081The datasets on this page are classified by analysis techniqueand by level of difficulty (lower, average, higher). They were originally intended to test statistical software. The sets cover these topics: ANOVA, linear regression, Markov Chain Monte Carlo, nonlinear regression, and univariate summary statistics. This is a nice collection as it not only contains raw data but also helps explain the different methods and tests.Tue, 18 Aug 2009 03:00:02 -0500True-False Quizzes for Finite Mathematics and Applied Calculus (2nd Ed.)
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9097
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9097Created by Steven R. Costenoble and Stefan Waner or Hofstra University, this site contains ninteen true/false quizzes that cover topics such as: sets, counting, probability, random variables ,statistics, Markov systems, and game theory. The computer automatically tallies the number of correct and incorrect responses. This is a nice resource for an instructor of either a statistics or calculus course.Tue, 4 Aug 2009 03:00:02 -0500Matrix Analytic Methods for Stochastic Fluid Flows
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8421
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8421This presentation, created by V. Ramaswami of AT&T Labs - Shannon Laboratory, addresses the matrix analytic approach to stochastic fluid flows. The author structures the overview in this manner: the Markov modulated fluid flow, review: quasi birth and death processes, matrix-exponential structure for the MMFF, the Markov renewal approach to MMFF and a summary. The resource employs charts, graphs and basic mathematical formula to demonstrate these concepts. While this is a complex topic, the author boils it down to a fairly understandable and concise overview.Thu, 12 Mar 2009 03:00:01 -0500Markov Chains
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9174
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9174Created by Kyle Siegrist of the University of Alabama-Huntsville, this is an online, interactive lesson on Markov chains. The author provides examples, exercises, and applets to introduce the subject. More specifically, the lesson covers: recurrence, transience, periodicity, time reversal, as well as invariant and limiting distributions. In addition, the author has provided links to external resources for further research. Overall, this is a great resource for those interested in this statistical process. It provides basic examples to introduce the topic, but also provides a more in-depth study to further challenge students.Mon, 2 Mar 2009 03:00:02 -0600Renewal Processes
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9177
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=9177Created by Kyle Siegrist of the University of Alabama-Huntsville, this is an online, interactive lesson on the renewal processes. The resource provides examples, exercises, and applets which include renewal equations and renewal limit theorems. This is the fifteenth of seventeen different statistics lessons presented by Siegrist. This site is broken up much like an online textbook. Each lesson is separable, but together, they form a cohesive look at different aspects of statistics.Fri, 27 Feb 2009 03:00:03 -0600Markov Chains
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8914
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8914This website, created by Everett F. Carter of Taygeta Scientific Inc., discusses Markov chains, transition probabilities, and the transition probability matrix. The website is simple, but is still a good resource to demonstrate these principles. Its use of mathematical formulas, intertwined with the text, allows the user to interact with both simultaneously. Overall, this is a good website for anyone interested in statistics.Fri, 26 Dec 2008 03:00:02 -0600Markov Chains

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8079
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8079This course, presented by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, introduces students to the modeling, quantification, and analysis of uncertainty. Topics covered include: formulation and solution in sample space-random variables, transform techniques, simple random processes, probability distributions, Markov processes, limit theorems, elements of statistical inference. This course has a complete set of lecture tools, and also assignments as learning aids.Mon, 10 Nov 2008 03:00:01 -0600ZweigMedia Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=623Stefan Waner and Steven Costenoble of Hofstra University's Department of Mathematics (mentioned in the February 14, 1997 Scout Report) provide the Finite Mathematics & Applied Calculus Resource Website as a parallel resource for their textbook on these subjects. This excellent resource offers a plethora of opportunities for the user to enhance his or her mathematical skills. Sections included at the site are Simplex Method Tool, Matrix Algebra Tool, Markov System in Action, and On-Line Numerical Integration, among others. Each section discusses the subject as it relates to Finite Mathematics Applied to the Real World, Calculus Applied to the Real World, and Finite Mathematics & Calculus Applied to the Real World. A highlight of the site is the On-line Interactive Tutorials section. Each tutorial (Algebra, Finite Mathematics, and Calculus) section provides a brief summary of the discussed topic along with a review exercise and true/false quizzes. This site is well worth a visit.Tue, 1 Nov 2005 08:14:16 -0600
