#### 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...

#### Mathematical Theory Of Adaptive Control

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 248.00The theory of adaptive control is concerned with construction of strategies so that the controlled system behaves in a desirable way, without assuming the complete knowledge of the system. The models considered in this comprehensive book are of Markovian type. Both partial observation and partial information cases are analyzed. While the book focuses... 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...

#### Practical Mathematical Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 89.95Presents basic optimization principles and gradient-based algorithms to a general audience. This work pays attention to the difficulties - such as noise, discontinuities, expense of function evaluations, and the existence of multiple minima - that often unnecessarily inhibit the use of gradient-based methods. more...

#### Global Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00Addresses the following topics: descriptions of implementations of general-purpose or problem-specific global optimization algorithms; algorithms in global optimization, some with numerical results and a discussion of the implementation; and surveys discussing software packages. more...

#### Multiscale Optimization Methods and Applications

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 199.00As optimization researchers tackle larger and larger problems, scale interactions play an increasingly important role. One general strategy for dealing with a large or difficult problem is to partition it into smaller ones, which are hopefully much easier to solve, and then work backwards towards the solution of original problem, using a solution from... more...

#### Handbook on Modelling for Discrete Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 209.00Aims to demonstrate and detail the pervasive nature of Discrete Optimization. This book utilizes the tools of mathematical modeling, optimization, and integer programming to solve a range of problems. It is intended for researchers in the domains of the Computer Science, Math Programming, Applied Mathematics, Engineering, and Operations Research. more...

#### Foundations of Generic Optimization

Springer 2006; US$ 139.00The success of a genetic algorithm when applied to an optimization problem depends upon several features present or absent in the problem to be solved, including the quality of the encoding of data, the geometric structure of the search space, deception or epistasis. This book deals essentially with the latter notion, presenting for the first time... more...
