  • System Theory -- A Modern Approach, Volume 1
      The theory of dynamic systems is addressed in this book in accordance with the "modern" approach, heir to algebraic analysis, which has been implemented since the last decade of the 20th century. After a reminder of the evolution of the representation of systems based on transfer functions or matrices, the duality of controllability and observability is revisited, and new results are produced concerning time-varying discrete-time systems. To complete and improve the existing analyses, the poles and zeros of linear systems and their interconnections are presented in a new way, as well as the problem of systems governed by functional differential equations (of retarded or neutral type) and their stabilization. This book also proposes known and original mathematical complements. [320 Pages, Hardcover]

  • Measuring Climate Change to Inform Energy Transitions
      Measuring Climate Change to Inform Energy Transitions A useful assessment tool to inform energy transition decisions in view of climate change Climate change is without question the greatest global challenge of the twenty-first century. Among its many aspects is the need for energy transitions worldwide, as sustainable energy infrastructure must be rapidly created if the world is to forestall climate catastrophe. Methods for measuring CO2 concentration and other factors producing climate change will be critical to managing this transition and assessing its early impacts. Measuring Climate Change to Inform Energy Transitions proposes a method for measuring sinusoidal gradients of increasing temperatures and CO2 concentration in order to determine the ongoing impact of global warming and make recommendations. This method will be critical in informing key decisions as the energy transition proceeds. It is a must-read for academic, professional, and policy stakeholders looking to meet these challenges head-on. Readers will also find: * Concrete models and mechanisms for effecting energy transition * Detailed discussion of topics including vegetative sinks for carbon capture, power reforms from coal, carbon footprint of internal combustion engines, skills required for green jobs and many more * Examples and case studies to supplement quantitative analyses This book is ideal for professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers in the energy, environmental, government, and engineering fields.

  • Computational Methods and Mathematical Modeling in Cyberphysics and Engineering Applications 1
      Mathematical methods in engineering are characterized by a wide range of techniques for approaching various problems. Moreover, completely different analysis techniques can be applied to the same problem, which is justified by the difference in specific applications. Therefore, the study of the analyses and solutions of specific problems leads the researcher to generate their own techniques for the analysis of similar problems continuously arising in the process of technical development. Computational Methods and Mathematical Modeling in Cyberphysics and Engineering Applications contains solutions to specific problems in current areas of computational engineering and cyberphysics.

  • Game Theory
      Authoritative and quantitative approach to modern game theory with applications from areas including economics, political science, computer science, and engineering Game Theory acknowledges the role of mathematics in making logical and advantageous decisions in adversarial situations and provides a balanced treatment of the subject that is both conceptual and applied. This newly updated and revised Third Edition streamlines the text to introduce readers to the basic theories behind games in a less technical but still mathematically rigorous way, with many new real-world examples from various fields of study, including economics, political science, military science, finance, biological science, and general game playing. The text introduces topics like repeated games, Bayesian equilibria, signaling games, bargaining games, evolutionary stable strategies, extensive games, and network and congestion games, which will be of interest across a wide range of disciplines. Separate sections in each chapter illustrate the use of Mathematica and Gambit software to create, analyze, and implement effective decision-making models. A companion website contains the related Mathematica and Gambit data sets and code. Solutions, hints, and methods used to solve most problems to enable self-learning are in an Appendix. Game Theory includes detailed information on: * The von Neumann Minimax Theorem and methods for solving any 2-person zero sum matrix game. * Two-person nonzero sum games solved for a Nash Equilibrium using nonlinear programming software or a calculus method. Nash Equilibria and Correlated Equilibria. Repeated games and punishment strategies to enforce cooperation * Games in Extensive Form for solving Bayesian and perfect information games using Gambit. * N-Person nonzero sum games, games with a continuum of strategies and many models in economics applications, duels, auctions, of Nash Equilibria, and the Stable Matching problem * Coalitions and characteristic functions of cooperative games, an exact nucleolus for three-player games, bargaining * Game theory in evolutionary processes and population games A trusted and proven guide for students of mathematics, engineering, and economics, the Third Edition of Game Theory is also an excellent resource for researchers and practitioners in economics, finance, engineering, operations research, statistics, and computer science.
