#### 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...

#### Liapunov Functions and Stability in Control Theory

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 209.00This book presents a modern and self-contained treatment of the Liapunov method for stability analysis, in the framework of mathematical nonlinear control theory. A Particular focus is on the problem of the existence of Liapunov functions (converse Liapunov theorems) and their regularity, whose interest is especially motivated by applications to automatic... 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...

#### A First Course in Harmonic Analysis

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 64.95This book introduces the central topics and techniques in harmonic analysis. In contrast to the competitive literature available, this book is based on the Riemann integral and metric spaces, in lieu of the Lebesgue integral and abstract topology. This edition has been revised to include two new chapters on distributions and the Heisenberg Group. more...
