Scale Construction and Psychometrics for Social and Personality Psychology
Providing conceptual and practical foundations in scale construction and psychometrics for producers and consumers of social/personality research, this guide covers basic principles, practices, and processes in scale construction, scale evaluation, scale use, and interpretation of research results in the context of psychological measurement. It explains fundamental concepts and methods related to dimensionality, reliability, and validity. In addition, it provides relatively non-technical introductions to special topics and advanced psychometric perspectives such as Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Generalizability Theory, and Item Response Theory.

The SAGE Library in Social and Personality Psychology Methods provides students and researchers with an understanding of the methods and techniques essential to conducting cutting-edge research.

Each volume within the Library explains a specific topic and has been written by an active scholar (or scholars) with expertise in that particular methodological domain. Assuming no prior knowledge of the topic, the volumes are clear and accessible for all readers. In each volume, a topic is introduced, applications are discussed, and readers are led step by step through worked examples. In addition, advice about how to interpret and prepare results for publication are presented.

Essays on Non-classical Logic: v. 1

FREEDownload : Essays on Non-classical Logic: v. 1

Heinrich Wansing, "Essays on Non-classical Logic: v. 1"
English | ISBN: 9810247354 | 2001 | 276 pages | PDF | 12 MB

Essays on Non-classical Logic: v. 1
This book covers a broad range of up-to-date issues in non-classical logic that are of interest not only to philosophical and mathematical logicians but also to computer scientists and researchers in artificial intelligence. The problems addressed range from methodological issues in paraconsistent and deontic logic to the revision theory of truth and infinite Turing machines. The book identifies a number of important current trends in contemporary non-classical logic. Among them are dialogical and substructural logic, the classification of concepts of negation, truthmaker theory, and mathematical and foundational aspects of modal and temporal logic.

Proceedings of the Sixth Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiements by Lars Arge
English | 2004 | 240 Pages | ISBN: 0898715644 | DJVU | 4 MB

Proceedings of the Sixth Workshop on Algorithm Engineering and Experiements
The aim of the annual ALENEX workshop is to provide a forum for the presentation of original research in the implementation and experimental evaluation of algorithms and data structures. This research presents significant studies in experimental analysis or in the implementation, testing, and evaluation of algorithms for realistic environments and scenarios.

The paper presentations address specific applied areas that present unique challenges in their underlying algorithmic problems as well as methodological issues and standards in the context of empirical research on algorithms and data structures. The ANALCO workshop presents a collection of original research in the analysis of algorithms and associated combinatorial structures. The papers study properties of fundamental combinatorial structures that arise in practical computational applications (such as permutations, trees, strings, tries, and graphs) and address the precise analysis of algorithms for processing such structures, including average-case analysis; analysis of moments, extrema, and distributions; and probabilistic analysis of randomized algorithms. This proceedings collects extended versions of the 14 papers that were selected for presentation from the ALENEX workshop and 10 papers selected for presentation from the ANALCO workshop.

Making Ancient Cities: Space and Place in Early Urban Societies

FREEDownload : Making Ancient Cities: Space and Place in Early Urban Societies

Making Ancient Cities: Space and Place in Early Urban Societies by Andrew T. Creekmore III and Kevin D. Fisher
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1107046521 | 437 pages | PDF | 22 MB

Making Ancient Cities: Space and Place in Early Urban Societies
This volume investigates how the structure and use of space developed and changed in cities, and examines the role of different societal groups in shaping urbanism. Culturally and chronologically diverse case studies provide a basis to examine recent theoretical and methodological shifts in the archaeology of ancient cities. The book's primary goal is to examine how ancient cities were made by the people who lived in them. The authors argue that there is a mutually constituting relationship between urban form and the actions and interactions of a plurality of individuals, groups, and institutions, each with their own motivations and identities. Space is therefore socially produced as these agents operate in multiple spheres.

Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models:- A roughness penalty approach

FREEDownload : Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models:- A roughness penalty approach

Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models: A roughness penalty approach By P.J. Green, Bernard. W. Silverman
1994 | 184 Pages | ISBN: 0412300400 | PDF | 4 MB

Nonparametric Regression and Generalized Linear Models:- A roughness penalty approach
In recent years, there has been a great deal of interest and activity in the general area of nonparametric smoothing in statistics. This monograph concentrates on the roughness penalty method and shows how this technique provides a unifying approach to a wide range of smoothing problems. The method allows parametric assumptions to be realized in regression problems, in those approached by generalized linear modelling, and in many other contexts.

The emphasis throughout is methodological rather than theoretical, and it concentrates on statistical and computation issues. Real data examples are used to illustrate the various methods and to compare them with standard parametric approaches. Some publicly available software is also discussed. The mathematical treatment is self-contained and depends mainly on simple linear algebra and calculus.

This monograph will be useful both as a reference work for research and applied statisticians and as a text for graduate students and other encountering the material for the first time.

The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Geropsychology
Throughout the world, the population of older adults continues to grow. The rise in geriatric populations has seen an increase in research on clinical diagnostic, assessment, and treatment issues aimed at this population. Clinical geropsychologists have increased their interest both in providing mental health services as well as developing approaches to improve quality of life for all older adults.

is a landmark publication in this field, providing broad and authoritative coverage of the research and practice issues in clinical geropsychology today, as well as innovations expanding the field's horizons. Comprising chapters from the foremost scholars in clinical geropsychology from around the world, the handbook captures the global proliferation of activity in this field.

In addition to core sections on topics such as sources of psychological distress, assessment, diagnosis, and intervention, the handbook includes valuable chapters devoted to methodological issues such as longitudinal studies and meta-analyses in the field, as well as new and emerging issues such as technological innovations and social media use in older populations. Each chapter offers a review of the most pertinent international literature, outlining current issues as well as important cultural implications and key practice issues where relevant, and identifying possibilities for future research and policy applications.

The book is essential to all psychology researchers, practitioners, educators, and students with an interest in the mental health of older adults.

Controversies Within the Scientific Revolution

FREEDownload : Controversies Within the Scientific Revolution

Controversies Within the Scientific Revolution by Marcelo Dascal and Victor D. Boantza
English | 2011 | ISBN: 9027218951 | 295 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Controversies Within the Scientific Revolution
From the beginning of the Scientific Revolution around the late sixteenth century to its final crystallization in the early eighteenth century, hardly an observational result, an experimental technique, a theory, a mathematical proof, a methodological principle, or the award of recognition and reputation remained unquestioned for long. The essays collected in this book examine the rich texture of debates that comprised the Scientific Revolution from which the modern conception of science emerged. Were controversies marginal episodes, restricted to certain fields, or were they the rule in the majority of scientific domains? To what extent did scientific controversies share a typical pattern, which distinguished them from debates in other fields? Answers to these historical and philosophical questions are sought through a close attention to specific controversies within and across the changing scientific disciplines as well as across the borders of the natural and the human sciences, philosophy, theology, and technology.
