Adversarial Risk Analysis

David L. Banks, Jesus M. Rios Aliaga, David Rios Insua
June 30, 2015

Flexible Models to Analyze Opponent Behavior A relatively new area of research, adversarial risk analysis (ARA) informs decision making when there are intelligent opponents and uncertain outcomes. Adversarial Risk Analysis develops methods for allocating defensive or offensive resources against...

Introduction to Computational Linear Algebra

Nabil Nassif, Jocelyne Erhel, Bernard Philippe
June 26, 2015

Teach Your Students Both the Mathematics of Numerical Methods and the Art of Computer Programming Introduction to Computational Linear Algebra presents classroom-tested material on computational linear algebra and its application to numerical solutions of partial and ordinary differential equations...

Differentiable Optimization

Michel Bierlaire
June 25, 2015

Optimization algorithms are critical tools for engineers, but difficult to use since none of them are universal in application. This introductery text builds up the knowledge set, from the basics, so that engineering students can understand the processes that govern optimization processes....

Partial Differential Equations with Variable Exponents: Variational Methods and Qualitative Analysis

Vicentiu D. Radulescu, Dusan D. Repovs
June 24, 2015

Partial Differential Equations with Variable Exponents: Variational Methods and Qualitative Analysis provides researchers and graduate students with a thorough introduction to the theory of nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) with a variable exponent, particularly those of elliptic type...

Search and Foraging: Individual Motion and Swarm Dynamics

Eugene Kagan, Irad Ben-Gal
June 23, 2015

Since the start of modern computing, the studies of living organisms have inspired the progress in developing computers and intelligent machines. In particular, the methods of search and foraging are the benchmark problems for robotics and multi-agent systems. The highly developed theory of search...

Stochastic Analysis for Gaussian Random Processes and Fields: With Applications

Vidyadhar S. Mandrekar, Leszek Gawarecki
June 23, 2015

Stochastic Analysis for Gaussian Random Processes and Fields: With Applications presents Hilbert space methods to study deep analytic properties connecting probabilistic notions. In particular, it studies Gaussian random fields using reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHSs). The book begins with...

Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach

Roman V. Yampolskiy
June 19, 2015

A day does not go by without a news article reporting some amazing breakthrough in artificial intelligence (AI). Many philosophers, futurists, and AI researchers have conjectured that human-level AI will be developed in the next 20 to 200 years. If these predictions are correct, it raises new and...

A Practical Guide to Geometric Regulation for Distributed Parameter Systems

Eugenio Aulisa, David Gilliam
June 18, 2015

A Practical Guide to Geometric Regulation for Distributed Parameter Systems provides an introduction to geometric control design methodologies for asymptotic tracking and disturbance rejection of infinite-dimensional systems. The book also introduces several new control algorithms inspired by...

June 12, 2015

Provides One Unified Formula That Gives Solutions to Several Types of GSEs Generalized Sylvester equations (GSEs) are applied in many fields, including applied mathematics, systems and control, and signal processing. Generalized Sylvester Equations: Unified Parametric Solutions presents a unified...

The Shroud of Turin: First Century after Christ!

Giulio Fanti, Pierandrea Malfi
June 10, 2015

The Turin Shroud is the most important and studied relic in the world. Many papers on it have recently appeared in important scientific journals. Scientific studies on the relic until today fail to provide conclusive answers about the identity of the enveloped man and the dynamics regarding the...

Mathematics and Archaeology

Juan A. Barcelo, Igor Bogdanovic
June 08, 2015

Although many archaeologists have a good understanding of the basics in computer science, statistics, geostatistics, modeling, and data mining, more literature is needed about the advanced analysis in these areas. This book aids archaeologists in learning more advanced tools and methods while also...
