The goal of this book is to develop efficient optimization algorithms to solve diverse real-world problems of graded difficulty. Genetic and evolutionary mechanisms have been deployed for reaching the goal.

This book has made five significant contributions in the realm of genetic and evolutionary computation (GEC).

"...this volume represents a real mine of information...anyone working in the field would benefit from owning a copy." IEEE Communications Engineer

Embedded network systems (ENS) provide a set of technologies that can link the physical world to large-scale networks in applications, such as monitoring of borders,...

An updated guide to GNSS and INS, and solutions to real-world GPS/INS problems with Kalman filtering

Written by recognized authorities in the field, this second edition of a landmark work provides engineers, computer scientists, and others with a working familiarity with the theory and contemporary...

This book deals with information processing; so it is far from being a book on information theory (which would be built on description and estimation). The reader will be shown the horse, but not the saddle. At any rate, at the very beginning, there was a series of lectures on “Information theory, through the looking-glass of an...

The discussion about the manned spacecraft program was initiated at NASA in 1959.
Only one year later, Dr. Kalman and Dr. Schmidt linked the linear Kalman filter and the
perturbation theory in order to obtain the Kalman-Schmidt filter, currently known as the
extended Kalman filter. This approach would be implemented in 1961 using an...

‘Tarantola's book is undoubtedly the most important work on probabilistic inverse theory. It presents a complete theory where a physical parameter is represented, not by a number, but by a probability distribution.’ Klaus Mosegaard, Niels Bohr Institute

The use of actual observations to infer the properties of a...

Mathematical Statistics for Economics and Business, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles of mathematical statistics which underpin statistical analyses in the fields of economics, business, and econometrics. The selection of topics in this textbook is designed to provide students with a...

Researchers, graduate students, and practitioners in the financial market now have the first reference-style handbook detailing the mechanics of statistical testing on financial and accounting data. This one-of-a-kind book illustrates how to use SAS software to conduct basic empirical analyses of stock market and financial statement data. It covers...

Many probability books are written by mathematicians and have the built-in bias that the reader is assumed to be a mathematician coming to the material for its beauty. This textbook is geared towards beginning graduate students from a variety of disciplines whose primary focus is not necessarily mathematics for its own sake. Instead,...

This monograph covers theoretical aspects of simultaneous localization and map building for mobile robots, such as estimation stability, nonlinear models for the propagation of uncertainties, temporal landmark compatibility, as well as issues pertaining the coupling of control and SLAM. One of the most relevant topics covered in this monograph is...

Pricing is an essential aspect of the marketing mix for brands and products. Further, pricing research in marketing is interdisciplinary, utilizing economic and psychological concepts with special emphasis on measurement and estimation. This unique Handbook provides current knowledge of pricing in a single, authoritative volume and brings together...
