'This second edition remains true to the remarkable standards of scholarship established by the first edition ... it will no doubt be a very welcome addition to the literature.' Peter W. Glynn, Prologue to the Second Edition

Meyn & Tweedie is back! The bible on Markov chains in general state spaces has been brought up to date to reflect developments in the field since 1996 - many of them sparked by publication of the first edition. The pursuit of more efficient simulation algorithms for complex Markovian models, or algorithms for computation of optimal policies for controlled Markov models, has opened new directions for research on Markov chains. As a result, new applications have emerged across a wide range of topics including optimisation, statistics, and economics. New commentary and an epilogue by Sean Meyn summarise recent developments and references have been fully updated. This second edition reflects the same discipline and style that marked out the original and helped it to become a classic: proofs are rigorous and concise, the range of applications is broad and knowledgeable, and key ideas are accessible to practitioners with limited mathematical background.

Geographic Information Metadata for Spatial Data Infrastructures: Resources, Interoperability and Information Retrieval
Geographic Information Metadata for Spatial Data Infrastructures: Resources, Interoperability and Information Retrieval
Metadata play a fundamental role in both DLs and SDIs. Commonly defined as "structured data about data" or "data which describe attributes of a resource" or, more simply, "information about data", it is an essential requirement for locating and evaluating available data. Therefore, this book focuses on the study of...

Development and Modelling of a Thermophotovoltaic System
The thermophotovoltaic (TPV) generation of electricity is based on the direct conversion of a thermal radiation coming from an emitter at high temperature into electric power by using photovoltaic (PV) cells. As shown in Figure 1.1 a heat source (generally a combustion process) is used to heat up an emitter material that converts...
