#### Emergence Of Dynamical Order

World Scientific Publishing Company 2004; US$ 149.00Synchronization processes bring about dynamical order and lead to spontaneous development of structural organization in complex systems of various origins, from chemical oscillators and biological cells to human societies and the brain. This book provides a review and a detailed theoretical analysis of synchronization phenomena in complex systems with... more...

#### Applied Research in Uncertainty Modeling and Analysis

Springer 2007; US$ 209.00Uncertainty has been a concern to engineers, managers, and scientists for many years in engineering and sciences. Uncertainty has for a long time been considered synonymous with random, stochastic, statistic, or probabilistic. Since the early sixties views on uncertainty have become more heterogeneous and more tools that model uncertainty than statistics... more...

#### Nonlinear Optimization with Financial Applications

Springer 2005; US$ 139.00The book introduces the key ideas behind practical nonlinear optimization. Computational finance ? an increasingly popular area of mathematics degree programs ? is combined here with the study of an important class of numerical techniques. The financial content of the book is designed to be relevant and interesting to specialists. However, this material... more...

#### Handbook of Combinatorial Optimization

Springer 2006; US$ 259.00This is a supplementary volume to the major three-volume Handbook of Combinatorial Optimization set, as well as the Supplement Volume A. It can also be regarded as a stand-alone volume which presents chapters dealing with various aspects of the subject, including optimization problems and algorithmic approaches for discrete problems more...

#### Algebraic and Differential Topology of Robust Stability

Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 209.99This book brings together the seemingly unrelated fields of algebraic topology and robust control. It develops algebraic/differential topology from an application-oriented point of view. It should be suitable for students in engineering and/or applied mathematics and academic researchers. more...

#### Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists

Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 125.95The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds,... more...

#### Modelling and Identification with Rational Orthogonal Basis Functions

Springer 2005; US$ 209.00Models of dynamical systems are of great importance in almost all fields of science and engineering and specifically in control, signal processing and information science. A model is always only an approximation of a real phenomenon so that having an approximation theory which allows for the analysis of model quality is a substantial concern. The use... more...

#### Subspace Methods for System Identification

Springer 2006; US$ 239.00An in-depth introduction to subspace methods for system identification in discrete-time linear systems thoroughly augmented with advanced and novel results, this text is structured into three parts. Part I deals with the mathematical preliminaries: numerical linear algebra; system theory; stochastic processes; and Kalman filtering. Part II explains... more...

#### Optimization and Control with Applications

Springer 2006; US$ 289.00This book contains refereed papers which were presented at the 34th Workshop of the International School of Mathematics "G. Stampacchia," the International Workshop on Optimization and Control with Applications. The book contains 28 papers that are grouped according to four broad topics: duality and optimality conditions, optimization algorithms,... more...

#### Collective Dynamics of Nonlinear and Disordered Systems

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2005; US$ 189.00Phase transitions in disordered systems and related dynamical phenomena are a topic of intrinsically high interest in theoretical and experimental physics. This book presents a unified view, adopting concepts from each of the disjoint fields of disordered systems and nonlinear dynamics. Special attention is paid to the glass transition, from both experimental... more...
