#### 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...

#### Fourier Series in Control Theory

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2006; US$ 109.00Uses techniques of Fourier series and functional analysis to deal with certain problems in differential equations. This book attempts to gather the available theory of the "nonharmonic Fourier series", combining results, to create a source of such material for practising applied mathematicians, engineers and other scientific professionals. 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...

#### 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...

#### Recent Advances in Optimization

Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 149.00Gives an overview of research done in optimization and related areas, such as optimal control, calculus of variations, and game theory. This book not only addresses abstract issues of optimization theory, but is also concerned with the modeling and computer resolution of specific optimization problems, arising in industry and applied sciences. more...

#### Essays and Surveys in Global Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 129.00Global optimization aims at solving the general problems of deterministic mathematical programming: to find the global optimum of a nonlinear, nonconvex, multivariate function of continuous and/or integer variables. This book examines its mathematical capability, power, and solutions to many fields in the applied sciences. more...

#### Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimization

Springer-Verlag New York Inc 2005; US$ 129.00The techniques of graph theory have been used in solving many classical problems. This book explores the field's classical foundations and its developing theories, ideas and applications to new problems. It also examines the geometric properties of graph theory and its widening uses in combinatorial optimization theory and application. more...
