#### Optimal Control with Engineering Applications

Springer 2007; US$ 109.00Because the theoretical part of the book is based on the calculus of variations, the exposition is very transparent and requires mostly a trivial mathematical background. In the case of open-loop optimal control, this leads to Pontryagins Minimum Principle and, in the case of closed-loop optimal control, to the Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman theory which... more...

#### Mean Oscillations and Equimeasurable Rearrangements of Functions

Springer 2007; US$ 49.95Considers various applications of equimeasurable function rearrangements to the "best constant"- type problems. This volume includes a product-space extension of the Rising Sun lemma, a product-space version of the John-Nirenberg inequality for bounded mean oscillation (BMO) functions with sharp exponent, and Gurov-Reshetnyak, reverse Holder. more...

#### Nonsmooth Vector Functions and Continuous Optimization

Springer 2007; US$ 129.00Focusing on the study of nonsmooth vector functions, this book presents a comprehensive account of the calculus of generalized Jacobian matrices and their applications to continuous nonsmooth optimization problems and variational inequalities in finite dimensions. more...

#### Advances in Metaheuristics for Hard Optimization

Springer 2007; US$ 179.00Contains chapters which are organized into parts on simulated annealing, tabu search, ant colony algorithms, general-purpose studies of evolutionary algorithms, applications of evolutionary algorithms, and various metaheuristics. This book gathers contributions related to: theoretical developments in metaheuristics; and software implementations. more...

#### Mathematical Modeling, Simulation, Visualization and E-learning

Springer 2007; US$ 109.00This book is a collection of articles written by some of the most prominent leading applied mathematicians, as well as articles from young and promising scientists from Africa, Asia and Europe. The common objective of these articles is to present an important issue which is currently widely discussed in scientific investigation with major human, economic... more...

#### Nonparametric System Identification

Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 74.00A 2008 overview of non-parametric system identification for nonlinear block-oriented systems for researchers and practitioners. more...

#### Representations, Wavelets, and Frames

Springer 2008; US$ 129.00Motivated by applications, an underlying theme in analysis is that of finding bases and understanding the transforms that implement them. These may be based on Fourier techniques or involve wavelet tools; they may be orthogonal or have redundancies (e.g., frames from signal analysis). Representations, Wavelets, and Frames contains chapters pertaining... more...

#### Pareto Optimality, Game Theory and Equilibria

Springer 2008; US$ 229.00This comprehensive work examines important recent developments and modern applications in the fields of optimization, control, game theory and equilibrium programming. In particular, the concepts of equilibrium and optimality are of immense practical importance affecting decision-making problems regarding policy and strategies, and in understanding... more...

#### Discrete Spectral Synthesis and Its Applications

Springer 2007; US$ 139.00Spectral analysis and synthesis deal with the description of translation invariant function spaces over locally compact Abelian groups. This book studies the situation over discrete Abelian groups with a range of applications in the fields of classical functional equations, difference and differential equations, and more. more...

#### Harmonic Analysis and Applications

Springer 2007; US$ 169.00This self-contained volume in honor of John J. Benedetto covers a wide range of topics in harmonic analysis and related areas. These include weighted-norm inequalities, frame theory, wavelet theory, time-frequency analysis, and sampling theory. The chapters are clustered by topic to provide authoritative expositions that will be of lasting interest.... more...
