#### 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...

#### A Kalman Filter Primer

Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 41.95System state estimation in the presence of noise is critical for control systems, signal processing, and many other applications in a variety of fields. Developed decades ago, the Kalman filter remains an important, powerful tool for estimating the variables in a system in the presence of noise. However, when inundated with theory and vast notations,... 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...

#### 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...
