The theory of complex variables is significant in pure mathematics, and the basis for important applications in applied mathematics (e.g. fluids). This text provides an introduction to the ideas that are met at university: complex functions, differentiability, integration theorems, with applications to real integrals. Applications to applied mathematics are omitted, although Fourier transforms are mentioned. The first part is based on an introductory lecture course, and the second expands on the methods used for the evaluation of real integrals. Numerous worked examples are provided throughout.

Review: This book gives students an accessible introduction to the world of complex analysis and how its methods are used. A First Course in Complex Analysis is reader-friendly to the newcomer and therefore is ideal for use by both undergrads as well as graduates. For undergrads, the authors refrain from abstractness and maintain an appreciated level of transparency. While for graduates, they effortlessly fill in the gaps that many standard course texts tend to leave wide open. Each chapter is followed by a section detailing the applications of the previously discussed topic. Additionally a quick review quiz for further verification and cultivation of skills is also included with each chapter. More info.

The first step in any long-read analysis is basecalling, or the conversion from raw data to nucleic acid sequences (Fig. 1c). This step receives greater attention for long reads than short reads where it is more standardised and usually performed using proprietary software. Nanopore basecalling is itself more complex than SMRT basecalling, and more options are available: of the 26 tools related to basecalling that we identified, 23 relate to nanopore sequencing.

Indels and substitutions are frequent in nanopore data, partly randomly but not uniformly distributed. Low-complexity stretches are difficult to resolve with the current (R9) pores and basecallers , as are homopolymer sequences. Measured current is a function of the particular k-mer residing in the pore, and because translocation of homopolymers does not change the sequence of nucleotides within the pore, it results in a constant signal that makes determining homopolymer length difficult. A new generation of pores (R10) was designed to increase the accuracy over homopolymers . Certain k-mers may differ in how distinct a signal they produce, which can also be a source of systematic bias. Sequence quality is of course intimately linked to the basecaller used and the data that has been used to train it. Read accuracy can be improved by training the basecaller on data that is similar to the sample of interest . ONT regularly release chemistry and software updates that improve read quality: 4 pore versions were introduced in the last 3 years (R9.4, R9.4.1, R9.5.1, R10.0), and in 2019 alone, there were 12 Guppy releases. PacBio similarly updates hardware, chemistry, and software: the last 3 years have seen the release of 1 instrument (Sequel II), 4 chemistries (Sequel v2 and v3; Sequel II v1 and v2), and 4 versions of the SMRT-LINK analysis suite.

Despite increasing accuracy of both SMRT and nanopore sequencing platforms, error correction remains an important step in long-read analysis pipelines. Published assemblies that omit careful error correction are likely to predict many spurious truncated proteins . Hybrid error correction, leveraging the accuracy of short reads, is still outperforming long-read-only correction . Modern short-read sequencing protocols require small input amounts (some even scale down to single cells) so sample amount is usually not a barrier to combining short- and long-read sequencing. Removing the need for short reads, and higher coverage via improvements in non-hybrid error correction tools and/or long-read sequencing accuracy, would reduce the cost, length, and complexity of genomic projects.

As we have seen, structural equation modeling is a broad framework that encompasses a vast array of linear models, namely linear regression, multivariate regression, path analysis, confirmatory factor analysis and structural regression. These models are parameterized rigorously under the LISREL (linear structural relations) framework developed by Karl Joreskög in 1969 and 1973. Understanding the matrix parameterizations is important not so much for practical implementation but to allow the data analyst to fully understand the nuances of each SEM model subtype. For example, a latent model must be identified by its corresponding observed indicators, a restriction that is not needed in path analysis models where all variables are observed. Additionally, a model that apparently predicts a latent variable to an observed endogenous variable is in fact a latent structural regression where the observed endogenous variable is forced to become a single indicator measurement model with constraints. These subtleties are not apparent to the causal analyst until he or she understands that $\Gamma$ and $B$ matrices in structural regression specify relationships only between latent variables. Although not a necessity for implementation, distinguishing between matrices such as $\Gamma$ and $B$ determine what type of model is considered. For example in a path analysis model, setting $B=0$ is equivalent to the multivariate regression where the only predictions are between observed exogenous and observed endogenous variables. Knowing that path analysis models do not contain $\eta$ or $\xi$ variables means understanding that path analysis is only appropriate for observed variables. Once the analyst is able to distinguish between these parameters, he or she will begin o understand the theoretical underpinnings of the structural equation model. However, distinguishing between $B$ and $\Gamma$ is not sufficient to understanding all of SEM, and we do not purport to instill mastery to the reader in one succinctly written website. Further pages may delve more deeply into estimation, as well as more complex topics such as multigroup SEM, latent growth models, and measurement invariance testing. There are also a tremendous number of literature and books on SEM that we hope the reader will take the time to read. At the very least, we hope you have found this introductory seminar to be useful, and we wish you best of luck on your research endeavors.
