Adaptive Backstepping Control of Uncertain Systems with Actuator Failures, Subsystem Interactions, and Nonsmooth Nonlinearities

Wei Wang, Changyun Wen, Jing Zhou
October 13, 2017

In practice, actuators often undergo failures and various factors influence its effectiveness. Also due to the increasing complexity of large-scale systems, subsystems are often interconnected, whereas the interactions between any two subsystems are difficult to deal with. This book details a...

An Invitation to the Rogers-Ramanujan Identities

Andrew V. Sills
October 12, 2017

The Rogers--Ramanujan identities are a pair of infinite series—infinite product identities that were first discovered in 1894. Over the past several decades these identities, and identities of similar type, have found applications in number theory, combinatorics, Lie algebra and vertex operator...

Recursive Identification and Parameter Estimation

Han-Fu Chen, Wenxiao Zhao
October 12, 2017

Recursive Identification and Parameter Estimation describes a recursive approach to solving system identification and parameter estimation problems arising from diverse areas. Supplying rigorous theoretical analysis, it presents the material and proposed algorithms in a manner that makes it easy to...

Distributed Strategic Learning for Wireless Engineers

Hamidou Tembine
October 12, 2017

Although valued for its ability to allow teams to collaborate and foster coalitional behaviors among the participants, game theory’s application to networking systems is not without challenges. Distributed Strategic Learning for Wireless Engineers illuminates the promise of learning in dynamic...

A Concise Introduction to Hypercomplex Fractals

Andrzej Katunin
October 11, 2017

This book presents concisely the full story on complex and hypercomplex fractals, starting from the very first steps in complex dynamics and resulting complex fractal sets, through the generalizations of Julia and Mandelbrot sets on a complex plane and the Holy Grail of the fractal geometry – a 3D...

Rough Fuzzy Image Analysis: Foundations and Methodologies

Sankar K. Pal, James F. Peters
October 06, 2017

Fuzzy sets, near sets, and rough sets are useful and important stepping stones in a variety of approaches to image analysis. These three types of sets and their various hybridizations provide powerful frameworks for image analysis. Emphasizing the utility of fuzzy, near, and rough sets in image...

Physical Components of Tensors

Wolf Altman, Antonio Marmo De Oliveira
October 01, 2017

Illustrating the important aspects of tensor calculus, and highlighting its most practical features, Physical Components of Tensors presents an authoritative and complete explanation of tensor calculus that is based on transformations of bases of vector spaces rather than on transformations of...

Spectral Methods in Geodesy and Geophysics

Christopher Jekeli
September 28, 2017

The text develops the principal aspects of applied Fourier analysis and methodology with the main goal to inculcate a different way of perceiving global and regional geodetic and geophysical data, namely from the perspective of the frequency, or spectral, domain rather than the spatial domain. The...

Theory of Differential Equations in Engineering and Mechanics

Kam Tim Chau
September 22, 2017

This gives comprehensive coverage of the essential differential equations students they are likely to encounter in solving engineering and mechanics problems across the field -- alongside a more advance volume on applications. This first volume covers a very broad range of theories related to...

Concise Introduction to Linear Algebra

Qingwen Hu
September 21, 2017

Concise Introduction to Linear Algebra deals with the subject of linear algebra, covering vectors and linear systems, vector spaces, orthogonality, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, singular value decomposition. It adopts an efficient approach to lead students from vectors, matrices...

Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process

Ali Emrouznejad, William Ho
September 19, 2017

This book is the first in the literature to present the state of the art and some interesting and relevant applications of the Fuzzy Analytic Hierarchy Process (FAHP). The AHP is a conceptually and mathematically simple, easily implementable, yet extremely powerful tool for group decision making...

Radar Detection Theory of Sliding Window Processes

Graham Weinberg
September 14, 2017

Constant false alarm rate detection processes are important in radar signal processing. Such detection strategies are used as an alternative to optimal Neyman-Pearson based decision rules, since they can be implemented as a sliding window process running on a radar range-Doppler map. This book...
