Introduction to mathematical theory of multistage decision processes takes a "functional equation" approach. Topics include existence and uniqueness theorems, optimal inventory equation, bottleneck problems, multistage games, Markovian decision processes, and more. 1957 edition.
Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this overview introduces theoretical and practical aspects of adaptive control, with emphasis on deterministic and stochastic viewpoints. 1995 edition.
Originally prepared for the Office of Naval Research, this important monograph introduces various methods for the asymptotic evaluation of integrals containing a large parameter, and solutions of ordinary linear differential equations by means of asymptotic expansions. Author's preface. Bibliography.
In a work of stunning and well-reasoned scholarship, a famous anarchist posits that the most effective human and animal communities are essentially cooperative, rather than competitive. A powerful counterpoint to the tenets of Social Darwinism.
A source of profound influence and controversy, this landmark 1915 work explains various phenomena of historical geology, geomorphy, paleontology, paleoclimatology, and similar areas in terms of continental drift. 64 illustrations. 1966 edition.
This classic text covers order statistics and their exceedances; exact distribution of extremes; the 1st asymptotic distribution; uses of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd asymptotes; more. 1958 edition. Includes 44 tables and 97 graphs.
This text covers several aspects and solutions of the problems of linear vibrating systems with a finite number of degrees of freedom. It offers a detailed account of the part of the theory of matrices necessary for efficient problem-solving, beginning with a focus on developing the necessary tools in matrix theory in the first four chapters. The following chapters present numerical procedures for the relevant matrix formulations and the relevant theory of differential equations. Directed toward a wide audience of applied mathematicians, scientists, and engineers, this book has much to offer all those interested in problem-solving from both practical and theoretical points of view. The mathe...
