The Statistical Analysis of Interval-censored Failure Time Data

The Statistical Analysis of Interval-censored Failure Time Data by Jianguo Sun
English | PDF | 2006 | 310 Pages | ISBN : 0387329056 | 2.05 MB
Survival analysis, the analysis of failure time data, is a rapid developing area and a number of books on the topic have been published in last twenty-five years. However, all of these books deal with right-censored failure time data, not the analysis of interval-censored failure time data. Interval-censored data include right-censored data as a special case and occur in many fields.

Technical Analysis for Algorithmic Pattern Recognition

Technical Analysis for Algorithmic Pattern Recognition By Prodromos E. Tsinaslanidis, Achilleas D. Zapranis
English | PDF,EPUB | 2016 | 213 Pages | ISBN : 3319236350 | 6.89 MB
The main purpose of this book is to resolve deficiencies and limitations that currently exist when using Technical Analysis (TA). Particularly, TA is being used either by academics as an "economic test" of the weak-form Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) or by practitioners as a main or supplementary tool for deriving trading signals.

An Experimental Economic Analysis of Banker Behavior

An Experimental Economic Analysis of Banker Behavior by Martin Hülsen
English | PDF | 2018 | 271 Pages | ISBN : 3658228075 | 4.51 MB
Martin Hülsen explores individual behavioral trustworthiness of and within the banking industry in Germany based on an economic experiment combined with psychological instruments. He finds that bankers have a reputation for being untrustworthy. However, his evidence also shows that the true story of banker trustworthiness is more complex: In particular, he explores differences between employees of commercial banks on the one hand and employees of savings and cooperative banks on the other.

Cellular Automata: Analysis and Applications

Cellular Automata: Analysis and Applications By Karl-Peter Hadeler
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 467 Pages | ISBN : 3319530429 | 14.64 MB
This book provides an overview of the main approaches used to analyze the dynamics of cellular automata. Cellular automata are an indispensable tool in mathematical modeling. In contrast to classical modeling approaches like partial differential equations, cellular automata are relatively easy to simulate but difficult to analyze. In this book we present a review of approaches and theories that allow the reader to understand the behavior of cellular automata beyond simulations.

What Are These TAR Files?

While TAR is just an uncompressed archive used in UNIX-based OS'es, this speaks little of its importance for the mobile forensic specialist. Since the introduction of the iPhone 5s, physical acquisition has never been the same. For all iPhones and iPads with Apple's 64-bit processors, physical acquisition is exclusively available via file system extraction because of full-disk encryption. Even with a jailbreak, you must run the tarball command on the device itself to bypass the encryption. Since the file system image is captured and packed by iOS, you'll get exactly the same TAR file regardless of the tool performing physical acquisition.


What Can We Do With That TAR File?

Until now, most tools available for analysing information inside these TAR files were integral parts of fully-featured forensic toolkits. Your options would be limited to either time-consuming manual analysis or a highly sophisticated forensic suite. This is where Elcomsoft Phone Viewer 3.70 comes. It offers a perfect alternative to both the manual analysis and the use of complex forensic packages. With Elcomsoft Phone Viewer, you can access call logs, contacts, messages, notifications, browsing history and location data.


Why TAR Files Are Important?

Compared to logical acquisition, physical offers tangible benefits. You get the following in addition to what you'd see in a backup:

1. Notifications. Undismissed notifications used to be part of a backup, yet iOS 11 got rid of them. Today, you can only extract notifications from a TAR file. Notifications may contain critical evidence that would be otherwise unavailable, such as notifications from email accounts, social networks, banking, travel and taxi apps, etc.

2. Applications. In iOS, developers have control over what information gets backed up. Even if they opt to allow a backup, the developer may choose to make the data available to same device only - meaning it'll be encrypted with a hardware key that would be impossible to crack even with a jailbreak. The TAR file solves this problem by allowing unrestricted access to apps' sandboxed data. Elcomsoft Phone Viewer displays the list of installed packages and shows the exact location of each app's data.

3. Locations. You can see a lot more location data in a TAR file compared to a backup.


EPV 3.70 can extract locations from multiple sources:

Significant locations

Locations cache

Apple Maps

Google Maps

EXIF in media files

Calendar events

The UBER app

By accessing location data gathered from such a wide range of sources, you are no longer limited to evidence from just the location logs. Some sources are only available with physical extraction and some data may be limited when analyzing backups.


When Locations Can Lie

When analysing location data, do note that you can't blindly trust everything reported by the tool. For example, locations are extracted from all images on the device and not just those captured by the device. Calendar events could be automatically added without the user ever attending. Locations cache lists approximate coordinates of the nearest base station, while Wi-Fi coordinates are retrieved with a third-party service based on the access point's MAC address; this data should generally be questioned as hard evidence. Finally, Significant Locations are derived with a closed-source algorithm. However, they are among the more reliable indicators of the user's actual location, albeit without a time stamp.


Analyzing TAR Files with Elcomsoft Phone Viewer

First, make sure you are using the Forensic edition, which can be purchased separately. The Standard edition can't open TAR files. You'll also need a TAR file obtained with Elcomsoft iOS Forensic Toolkit or GrayKey.


Launch EPV. You'll see a new icon - "iOS device image". Click on it to open a TAR file.

Select the TAR file. Once it opens, you'll see a prompt asking whether to scan locations other than the Camera Roll for media files that may contain location data.

The archive will be unpacked.

The file will be processed to discover and index evidence.

Finally, you'll be able to access evidence! Due to background processing of the data you may be concerned with one or more question marks instead of the number of items. EPV resolves the number of entries once you open the corresponding category.


So what's inside?

First, the list of installed apps. If your computer has Internet access, you'll be prompted to allow matching package names against iTunes database. This allows seeing the actual app's name rather than the name of the package.

Locations. Click on the coordinates to open the map.

In addition, you can analyze Safari bookmarks, browsing history, notifications, call logs, messages and more.

Functional Analysis: An Introductory Course

Functional Analysis: An Introductory Course by Sergei Ovchinnikov
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 210 Pages | ISBN : 3319915118 | 6.77 MB
This concise text provides a gentle introduction to functional analysis. Chapters cover essential topics such as special spaces, normed spaces, linear functionals, and Hilbert spaces. Numerous examples and counterexamples aid in the understanding of key concepts, while exercises at the end of each chapter provide ample opportunities for practice with the material. Proofs of theorems such as the Uniform Bounded Theory, the Open Mapping Theorem, and the Closed Graph Theorem are worked through step-by-step, providing an accessible avenue to understanding these important results. The prerequisites for this book are linear algebra and elementary real analysis, with two introductory chapters providing an overview of material necessary for the subsequent text.
