Ökten, Giray
 Abstract/Description

First Semester in Numerical Analysis with Julia presents the theory and methods, together with the implementation of the algorithms using the Julia programming language (version 1.1.0). The book covers computer arithmetic, rootfinding, numerical quadrature and differentiation, and approximation theory. The reader is expected to have studied calculus and linear algebra. Some familiarity with a programming language is beneficial, but not required. The programming language Julia will be...
Show moreFirst Semester in Numerical Analysis with Julia presents the theory and methods, together with the implementation of the algorithms using the Julia programming language (version 1.1.0). The book covers computer arithmetic, rootfinding, numerical quadrature and differentiation, and approximation theory. The reader is expected to have studied calculus and linear algebra. Some familiarity with a programming language is beneficial, but not required. The programming language Julia will be introduced in the book. The simplicity of Julia allows bypassing the pseudocode and writing a computer code directly after the description of a method while minimizing the distraction the presentation of a computer code might cause to the flow of the main narrative.

Show moreThis publication is based on the 2016 Society for Vocational Psychology (SVP) Biennial Conference, that was held at the Florida State University on May 1617, 2016. The conference theme was "Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology." The conference content and the resulting edited book are based on the assumption that the science and practice of vocational psychology are more successful with the integration of theory, research, and practice. This book's purpose is to examine the challenges and opportunities for integrating theory, research, and practice in vocational psychology from the perspectives of theorists, researchers, practitioners, and journal editors, with the hope that this knowledge will lead to improved science and career interventions. Following a Foreword by Saba Rasheed Ali and a Preface by James P. Sampson, Jr., Emily BullockYowell, V. Casey Dozier, Debra S. Osborn, and Janet G. Lenz, this book contains three sections and twenty chapters. Section 1, Challenges and Opportunities for Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology, contains: (1) Integration of Theory, Research, and Practice: A Social Cognitive Perspective (Robert W. Lent); (2) Holland's Integration of Career Theory, Research, and Practice (Robert C. Reardon); (3) Counseling for Work and Relationship:A PracticeDriven Theoretical Approach (Mary Sue Richardson); (4) The Systems Theory Framework of Career Development (Wendy Patton, Mary McMahon); (5) A Cognitive Information Processing Theory for Career Choices: Challenges and Opportunities for Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice (James P. Sampson, Jr.); and (6) Integration of Theory, Research, and Practice: Using Our Tools to Address Challenging Times (Saba Rasheed Ali, Samantha D. Brown). Section 2, Using Theory and Research to Improve EvidenceBased Practice, contains: (7) The Role of Theory in Improving EvidenceBased Career Interventions (Nadya A. Fouad); (8) MetaAnalysis and EvidenceBased Career Practice: Current Status and Future Directions (Steven D. Brown); (9) Conducting General Versus Population and SettingSpecific MetaAnalyses (Susan C. Whiston); (10) Improving the Design and Use of MetaAnalyses of Career Interventions (Betsy Jane Becker); (11) Personal Reflections on a Career Spent Creating and Sustaining ResearcherPractitioner Collaborations (V. Scott H. Solberg); and (12) Summary of Key Elements in Using Theory and Research to Improve EvidenceBased Practice (Patrick J. Rottinghaus). Section 3, A View from the Editor's Desk: Ensuring Quality in Theory, Research, and Practice contains: (13) Ensuring Quality in Theory, Research, and Practice: "The Career Development Quarterly" (Ryan D. Duffy); (14) Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice: A Viewpoint from a Member of the Editorial Board of the "Journal of Career Assessment" (Itamar Gati); (15) "Journal of Career Development": Recommendations for Future Journal Practices for Integrating Career Theory, Research, and Practice (Lisa Y. Flores); (16) Ensuring Quality in Theory, Research, and Practice: "Journal of Employment Counseling" (Dale Furbish, Angie Smith); (17) Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology: Perspectives of a "Journal of Vocational Behavior" Editorial Board Member (Donna E. Schultheiss); (18) The Role of Refereed Journals in Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice (Kimberly A. S. Howard); (19) Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice: Lessons Learned from the Evolution of Vocational Psychology (David L. Blustein); and (20) The State of the Art in Integrating Theory, Research, and Practice in Vocational Psychology (James P. Sampson, Jr., Emily BullockYowell, V. Casey Dozier, Debra S. Osborn, Janet G. Lenz, Nathan T. Ross). A keyword index and an author index are included.

Show moreIntroduction to Financial Mathematics: Concepts and Computational Methods serves as a primer in financial mathematics with a focus on conceptual understanding of models and problem solving. It includes the mathematical background needed for risk management, such as probability theory, optimization, and the like. The goal of the book is to expose the reader to a wide range of basic problems, some of which emphasize analytic ability, some requiring programming techniques and others focusing on statistical data analysis. In addition, it covers some areas which are outside the scope of mainstream financial mathematics textbooks. For example, it presents marginal account setting by the CCP and systemic risk, and a brief overview of the model risk. Inline exercises and examples are included to help students prepare for exams on this book.
