With the increasing applications of intelligent robotic systems in various fields, the design and control of these systems have increasingly attracted interest from researchers. This edited book entitled Design and Control of Intelligent Robotic Systems in the book series of Studies in Computational Intelligence is a collection of some...

Incorporating intelligence in industrial systems can help to increase productivity, cut-off production costs, and to improve working conditions and safety in industrial environments. This need has resulted in the rapid development of modeling and control methods for industrial systems and robots, of fault detection and isolation methods for...

The author defines “Geometric Algebra Computing” as the geometrically intuitive development of algorithms using geometric algebra with a focus on their efficient implementation, and the goal of this book is to lay the foundations for the widespread use of geometric algebra as a powerful, intuitive mathematical language for...

This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlying mathematical principles, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational...

This volume does much more than survey modern advanced color processing. Starting with a historical perspective on ways we have classified color, it sets out the latest numerical techniques for analyzing and processing colors, the leading edge in our search to accurately record and print what we see. The human eye perceives only a fraction of...

Software Defined Radio makes wireless communications easier, more efficient, and more reliable. This book bridges the gap between academic research and practical implementation. When beginning a project, practicing engineers, technical managers, and graduate students can save countless hours by considering the concepts presented in these...

This book is intended to give students at the advanced undergraduate or introductory
graduate level, and researchers in computer vision, robotics and computer
graphics, a self-contained introduction to the geometry of three-dimensional (3-
D) vision. This is the study of the reconstruction of 3-D models of objects from
a...

This book is the result of a series of lectures on linear algebra and the geometry of multidimensional spaces given in the 1950s through 1970s by Igor R. Shafarevich at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Moscow State University.

Notes for some of these lectures were preserved in the faculty library, and these were used...

Excel 2010 for Business Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Business Problems
helps anyone who wants to learn the basics of applying Excel’s powerful statistical
tools to their business or to their classes. If understanding statistics isn’t your
strongest suit, you are not mathematically inclined, or you are wary...

Stressing common characteristics and real applications of the most used microcontrollers, this practical guide provides readers with hands-on knowledge of how to implement three families of microcontrollers (HC11, AVR, and 8051). Unlike the rest of the ocean of literature on individual chips, Microcontrollers in Practice supplies side-by-side...

These proceedings contain the papers that were presented at the 5th International
Conference on Language and Automata Theory and Applications (LATA
2011), held in Tarragona, Spain, during May 26–31, 2011.

The scope of LATA is rather broad, including: algebraic language theory;
algorithms for semi-structured...

The objective of this book is to give an introduction to the software process improvement
field to computer science students. The well-known Capability Maturity Model Integration
(CMMI1) is used as the vehicle for software process improvement as it has become the
de facto standard2 for implementing best practice in software...
