  • Texts in Applied Mathematics 36: A Course in Robust Control Theory: A Convex Approach (Hardback)

    Texts in Applied Mathematics 36: A Course in Robust Control Theory: A Convex Approach (Hardback)

    $68.29

    "This goal of this book is to give a graduate-level course on robust control theory that emphasizes ... new developments, but at the same time conveys the main principles and ubiquitous tools at the heart of the subject. Its pedagogical objectives are to introduce a coherent and unified framework for studying robust control theory, to provide students with the control-theoretic background required to read and contributed to the research literature, and the present the main ideas and demonstrations of the major results of robust control theory." — From the back cover

  • Introduction to Applied Mathematics (Hardback)

    Introduction to Applied Mathematics (Hardback)

    $51.99

    "It is a pleasure to teach a subject when it is moving forward, and this one is—but the book has to share in that spirit and help to establish it. ... This book is a text for applied mathematics and advanced calculus and engineering mathematics. It aims to explain what is essential, as far as possible within one book and one year. It also reaches beyond the usual courses, to introduce more recent ideas..." — Gilbert Strang, Author, in the Preface

  • Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

    Classical Mechanics: Theory and Mathematical Modeling (Hardcover)

    $49.95

    "Classical mechanics is a chief example of the scientific method organizing a 'complex' collection of information into theoretically rigorous, unifying principles; in this sense, mechanics represents one of the highest forms of mathematical modeling. This textbook covers standard topics of a mechanics course, namely, the mechanics of rigid bodies, Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism, stability and small oscillations, an introduction to celestial mechanics, and Hamilton-Jacobi theory, but at the same time features unique examples—such as the spinning top including friction and gyroscopic compass—seldom appearing in this context. In addition, variational principles like Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics are treated in great detail." — From the back cover

  • Introduction to Symmetry Analysis (Softcover with CD-ROM)

    Introduction to Symmetry Analysis (Softcover with CD-ROM)

    $74.79

    "Symmetry analysis based on Lie group theory is the most important method for solving nonlinear problems aside from numerical computation. ... The text emphasizes applications, and numerous worked examples are used to illustrate basic concepts." — From the back cover

  • Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability 51: Applied Probability and Queues, Second Edition (Hardback)

    Stochastic Modelling and Applied Probability 51: Applied Probability and Queues, Second Edition (Hardback)

    $91.29

    "This book serves as an introduction to queueing theory and provides a thorough treatment of tools such as Markov processes, renewal theory, random walks, Lévy processes, matrix-analytic methods, and chagne of measure. ..." — From the back cover

  • Fundamentals of Queueing Networks: Performance, Asymptotics, and Optimization (Hardback)

    Fundamentals of Queueing Networks: Performance, Asymptotics, and Optimization (Hardback)

    $70.95

    "This timely and synoptic text contains the essentials of queueing networks, from the classical product-form theory to the more recent developments such as diffusion and fluid limits, stochastic comparisons, stability, dynamic scheduling, and optimization." — From the back cover

  • Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems (Softcover)

    Iterative Methods for Solving Linear Systems (Softcover)

    $46.59

    "For a course in matrix iterations, this is just the right book. It is wide ranging, careful about details, and appealingly written—a major addition to the literature in this important area." — Nick Trefethen, Oxford University Computing Laboratory, England

  • Frontiers in Applied Mathematics: Computational Frameworks for the Fast Fourier Transform (Softcover)

    Frontiers in Applied Mathematics: Computational Frameworks for the Fast Fourier Transform (Softcover)

    $36.29

    "The fast Fourier transform (FFT) is one of the truly great computational developments of [the 20th] century. It has changed the face of science and engineering so much so that it is not an exaggeration to say that life as we know it would be very different without the FFT." — From the Preface (page ix)

  • Applied Mathematical Sciences 40: Linear Operator Theory in Engineering and Science (Softcover)

    Applied Mathematical Sciences 40: Linear Operator Theory in Engineering and Science (Softcover)

    $72.95

    "The goal of this book is to present the basic facts of functional analysis in a form suitable for engineers, scientists, and applied mathematicians. Although the Definition-Theorem-Proof format of mathematics is used, careful attention is given to motivation of the material covered and many illustrative examples are presented." — Preface
