Title  Signal Processing and Systems Theory : Selected Topics 
Author(s)  Chui, Charles K;Chen, Guanrong 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1992. 
Description  XI, 267 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  "Signal Processing and Systems Theory" is concerned with the study of Hoptimization for digital signal processing and discretetime control systems. The first three chapters present the basic theory and standard methods in digital filtering and systems from the frequencydomain approach, followed by a discussion of the general theory of approximation in Hardy spaces. AAK theory is introduced, first for finiterank operators and then more generally, before being extended to the multiinput/multioutput setting. This mathematically rigorous book is selfcontained and suitable for selfstudy. The advanced mathematical results derived here are applicable to digital control systems and digital filtering

Title  New Foundations for Classical Mechanics 
Author(s)  Hestenes, D 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1999. 
Description  XIV, 706 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  (revised) This is a textbook on classical mechanics at the intermediate level, but its main purpose is to serve as an introduction to a new mathematical language for physics called geometric algebra. Mechanics is most commonly formulated today in terms of the vector algebra developed by the American physicist J. Willard Gibbs, but for some applications of mechanics the algebra of complex numbers is more efficient than vector algebra, while in other applications matrix algebra works better. Geometric algebra integrates all these algebraic systems into a coherent mathematical language which not only retains the advantages of each special algebra but possesses powerful new capabilities. This book covers the fairly standard material for a course on the mechanics of particles and rigid bodies. However, it will be seen that geometric algebra brings new insights into the treatment of nearly every topic and produces simplifications that move the subject quickly to advanced levels. That has made it possible in this book to carry the treatment of two major topics in mechanics well beyond the level of other textbooks. A few words are in order about the unique treatment of these two topics, namely, rotational dynamics and celestial mechanics

Title  Geometrical Methods for the Theory of Linear Systems : Proceedings of a NATO Advanced Study Institute and AMS Summer Seminar in Applied Mathematics held at Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., June 18???29, 1979 
Author(s)  Byrnes, C.I;Martin, C.F 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1980. 
Description  X, 318 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The lectures contained in this book were presented at Harvard University in June 1979. The workshop at which they were presented was the third such on algebrogeometric methods. The first was held in 1973 in London and the emphasis was largely on geometric methods. The second was held at Ames Research CenterNASA in 1976. There again the emphasis was on geometric methods, but algebraic geometry was becoming a dominant theme. In the two years after the Ames meeting there was tremendous growth in the applications of algebraic geometry to systems theory and it was becoming clear that much of the algebraic systems theory was very closely related to the geometric systems theory. On this basis we felt that this was the right time to devote a workshop to the applications of algebra and algebraic geometry to linear systems theory. The lectures contained in this volume represent all but one of the tutorial lectures presented at the workshop. The lec?? ture of Professor Murray Wonham is not contained in this volume and we refer the interested to the archival literature. This workshop was jointly sponsored by a grant from Ames Research CenterNASA and a grant from the Advanced Study Institute Program of NATO. We greatly appreciate the financial support rendered by these two organizations. The American Mathematical Society hosted this meeting as part of their Summer Seminars in Applied Mathematics and will publish the companion volume of con?? tributed papers

Title  Linear Prediction Theory : A Mathematical Basis for Adaptive Systems 
Author(s)  Strobach, Peter 
Publication  Berlin, Heidelberg, Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 1990. 
Description  XVI, 422 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  Lnear prediction theory and the related algorithms have matured to the point where they now form an integral part of many realworld adaptive systems. When it is necessary to extract information from a random process, we are frequently faced with the problem of analyzing and solving special systems of linear equations. In the general case these systems are overdetermined and may be characterized by additional properties, such as update and shiftinvariance properties. Usually, one employs exact or approximate leastsquares methods to solve the resulting class of linear equations. Mainly during the last decade, researchers in various fields have contributed techniques and nomenclature for this type of leastsquares problem. This body of methods now constitutes what we call the theory of linear prediction. The immense interest that it has aroused clearly emerges from recent advances in processor technology, which provide the means to implement linear prediction algorithms, and to operate them in real time. The practical effect is the occurrence of a new class of highperformance adaptive systems for control, communications and system identification applications. This monograph presumes a background in discretetime digital signal processing, including Ztransforms, and a basic knowledge of discretetime random processes. One of the difficulties I have en?? countered while writing this book is that many engineers and computer scientists lack knowledge of fundamental mathematics and geometry

Title  ThreeDimensional Modeling with Geoscientific Information Systems 
Author(s)  Turner, A.K 
Publication  Dordrecht, Springer Netherlands, 1992. 
Description  XX, 443 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  A. K. TURNER Department of Geology and Geological Engineering Colorado School of Mines Golden, Colorado 80401 USA Geology deals with threedimensional data. Geoscientists are concerned with three?? dimensional spatial observations, measurements, and explanations of a great variety of phenomena. The representation of threedimensional data has always been a problem. Prior to computers, graphical displays involved specialized maps, crosssections, fence diagrams, and geometrical constructions such as stereonets. All were designed to portray threedimensional relationships on twodimensional paper products, and all were time?? consuming to develop. Until recently, computers were of little assistance to threedimensional data handling and representation problems. Memory was too expensive to handle the huge amounts of data required by threedimensional assessments; computational speeds were too slow to perform the necessary calculations within a reasonable time; and graphical displays had too Iowa resolution or were much too expensive to produce useful visualizations. Much experience was gained with twodimensional geographic information systems (GIS), which were applied to many landuse management and resource assessment problems. The twodimensional GIS field matured rapidly in the late 1980's and became widely accepted. The advent of the modern computer workstation, with its enhanced memory and graphical capabilities at ever more affordable prices, has largely overcome these earlier constraints
