Wave propagation in random media: diffusion vs. localization
Dr. Thomas Wellens (Physikalisches Institut, Univ. Freiburg): As it is well known, waves are fundamentally distinct from (classical) particles in their ability to display interference. However, in presence of disorder, interferences tend to be washed out. In this case, wave propagation reduces to a simple diffusion process - like a random walk of a classical particle ("soccer ball in the forest"). But under appropriate circumstances, some interferences may also survive the disorder average and i

02 - The Universal Principle of Risk Management: Pooling and the Hedging of Risks
Statistics and mathematics underlie the theories of finance. Probability Theory and various distribution types are important to understanding finance. Risk management, for instance, depends on tools such as variance, standard deviation, correlation, and regression analysis. Financial analysis methods such as present values and valuing streams of payments are fundamental to understanding the time value of money and have been in practice for centuries.

The package was created to solve many of the problems which exist with the delivery and use of modern statistical software. Many times statisticians develop procedures in languages such as Splus, SAS, Minitab, etc.., which are very specific to statisticians. Students and other potential users may not have access to these languages, and therefore may not be able to use the procedures. By using Java and the World Wide Web, StatCrunch should reach the broadest possible audience of any statistical s
