Medicinal Uses It is a matter of astonishment to many that the luscious mango, Mangifera indica L. The extent to which the mango tree shares some of the characteristics of its relatives will be explained further on. The universality of its renown is attested by the wide usage of the name, mango in English and Spanish and, with only slight variations in French mangot, mangue, manguierPortuguese manga, mangueiraand Dutch manja.
In general, the forces of competition are imposing a need for more effective decision making at all levels in organizations. Progressive Approach to Modeling: Modeling for decision making involves two distinct parties, one is the decision-maker and the other is the model-builder known as the analyst.
Therefore, the analyst must be equipped with more than a set of analytical methods. Specialists in model building are often tempted to study a problem, and then go off in isolation to develop an elaborate mathematical model for use by the manager i.
Unfortunately the manager may not understand this model and may either use it blindly or reject it entirely. The specialist may feel that the manager is too ignorant and unsophisticated to appreciate the model, while the manager may feel that the specialist lives in a dream world of unrealistic assumptions and irrelevant mathematical language.
Such miscommunication can be avoided if the manager works with the specialist to develop first a simple model that provides a crude but understandable analysis.
After the manager has built up confidence in this model, additional detail and sophistication can be added, perhaps progressively only a bit at a time.
This progressive model building is often referred to as the bootstrapping approach and is the most important factor in determining successful implementation of a decision model. Moreover the bootstrapping approach simplifies otherwise the difficult task of model validating and verification processes.
What is a System: Systems are formed with parts put together in a particular manner in order to pursuit an objective. The relationship between the parts determines what the system does and how it functions as a whole. Therefore, the relationship in a system are often more important than the individual parts.
In general, systems that are building blocks for other systems are called subsystems The Dynamics of a System: A system that does not change is a static i. Many of the systems we are part of are dynamic systems, which are they change over time.
Whether a system is static or dynamic depends on which time horizon you choose and which variables you concentrate on. The time horizon is the time period within which you study the system. The variables are changeable values on the system.
In deterministic modelsa good decision is judged by the outcome alone. However, in probabilistic models, the decision-maker is concerned not only with the outcome value but also with the amount of risk each decision carries As an example of deterministic versus probabilistic models, consider the past and the future: Nothing we can do can change the past, but everything we do influences and changes the future, although the future has an element of uncertainty.
Managers are captivated much more by shaping the future than the history of the past. Uncertainty is the fact of life and business; probability is the guide for a "good" life and successful business. In very few decision making situations is perfect information - all the needed facts - available.
Most decisions are made in the face of uncertainty. Probability enters into the process by playing the role of a substitute for certainty - a substitute for complete knowledge. Probabilistic Modeling is largely based on application of statistics for probability assessment of uncontrollable events or factorsas well as risk assessment of your decision.
The original idea of statistics was the collection of information about and for the State.
According to tax statements, it looks like the gross earnings from the laundromat are $21, and the net is $9, This is an all-cash business and the current owners (brothers) are an attorney and a CPA. By L. Fambon, G. Joffroy, TOTAL E&P UK Drilling infill wells on HPHT fields after a significant depletion has occurred represents a difficult challenge. It requires drilling from a cap rock remaining at or close to virgin pressure into a reservoir in which pore and fracture pressures have largely decreased due to production. No mud-weight.

The word statistics is not derived from any classical Greek or Latin roots, but from the Italian word for state. Probability has a much longer history. Probability is derived from the verb to probe meaning to "find out" what is not too easily accessible or understandable.Contents Awards Printed Proceedings Online Proceedings Cross-conference papers Awards In honor of its 25th anniversary, the Machine Learning Journal is sponsoring the awards for the student authors of the best and distinguished papers.
For the purposes of the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA), an FEIS is a document intended to ensure that environmental values (both natural and built, including public health) are considered during the decision-making process by local and state agencies.
