#### Application of Nonlinear Systems in Nanomechanics and Nanofluids

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 200.00#### Advanced Methods in the Fractional Calculus of Variations

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99This brief presents a general unifying perspective on the fractional calculus. It brings together results of several recent approaches in generalizing the least action principle and the Euler?Lagrange equations to include fractional derivatives. The dependence of Lagrangians on generalized fractional operators as well as on classical derivatives... more...

#### Semi-Markov Models

Elsevier Science 2015; US$ 100.00Featuring previously unpublished results, Semi-Markov Models: Control of Restorable Systems with Latent Failures describes valuable methodology which can be used by readers to build mathematical models of a wide class of systems for various applications. In particular, this information can be applied to build models of reliability, queuing systems,... more...

#### Numerical Methods for Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 129.00The description of many interesting phenomena in science and engineering leads to infinite-dimensional minimization or evolution problems that define nonlinear partial differential equations. While the development and analysis of numerical methods for linear partial differential equations is nearly complete, only few results are available in the case... more...

#### State Space Consistency and Differentiability

Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 54.99?By investigating the properties of the natural state, this book presents an analysis of input-output systems with regard to the mathematical concept of state. The state of a system condenses the effects of past inputs to the system in a useful manner. This monograph emphasizes two main properties of the natural state; the first has to do with the... more...

Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 72.95Advances in Control Systems: Theory and Applications, Volume 1 provides information pertinent to the significant progress in the field of automatic control. This book presents several fundamental approaches to algorithms for the determination of optimum control inputs to a system. Organized into six chapters, this volume begins with an overview of... more...

#### Elementary Symplectic Topology and Mechanics

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 49.99This is a short tract on the essentials of differential and symplectic geometry together with a basic introduction to several applications of this rich framework: analytical mechanics, the calculus of variations, conjugate points & Morse index, and other physical topics. A central feature is the systematic utilization of Lagrangian submanifolds and... more...

#### Stochastic Control Theory

Springer Japan 2014; US$ 109.00This book offers a systematic introduction to the optimal stochastic control theory via the dynamic programming principle, which is a powerful tool to analyze control problems. First we consider completely observable control problems with finite horizons. Using a time discretization we construct a nonlinear semigroup related to the dynamic programming... more...

#### Instance-Specific Algorithm Configuration

Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 89.99This book presents a modular and expandable technique in the rapidly emerging research area of automatic configuration and selection of the best algorithm for the instance at hand. The author presents the basic model behind ISAC and then details a number of modifications and practical applications. In particular, he addresses automated feature generation,... more...
