This exciting primer on Solar Racing literally starts from the ground up, describing how the interactions of a vehicle with its environment circumscribe its ultimate success, from aerodynamics to resistance and propulsion. By demonstrating how to mathematically model these underlying physical phenomena, the author helps solar racing competitors...

Iterative algorithms often rely on approximate evaluation techniques, which may include statistical estimation, computer simulation or functional approximation. This volume presents methods for the study of approximate iterative algorithms, providing tools for the derivation of error bounds and convergence rates, and for the optimal design of...

Quantum computers will revolutionize the way telecommunications networks function.

Quantum computing holds the promise of solving problems that would be intractable with conventional computers, by implementing principles from quantum physics in the development of computer hardware, software and communications equipment....

Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging produces images of the human tissues in a noninvasive manner, revealing the structure, metabolism, and function of tissues and organs. The impact of this image technique in diagnostic radiology is impressive, due to its versatility and flexibility in joining high-quality anatomical images with functional...

The technological progress in multi-carrier (MC) modulation led orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) to become an important part of beyond 3G cellular mobile communication standards, including LTE and WiMAX. In addition, the flexibility offered by the spread spectrum (SS) and time division multiplexing (TDM) techniques motivated...

The pace of change in software-intensive systems continues to accelerate at a dizzying rate. This presents a huge challenge for people trying to develop useful software. In the early days of software development, developers could freeze the requirements for the software, develop the software to the requirements, and deliver the resulting software...

"As in the previous edition, this book is a good resource for practitioners and cross-disciplinary researchers who use data from complex survey designs." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, March 2006)

"The first edition of the book was one of the first books in the excellent Wiley U.K. series on...

Solve machine learning problems using probabilistic graphical models implemented in Python with real-world applications

About This Book

Stretch the limits of machine learning by learning how graphical models provide an insight on particular problems, especially in high dimension areas such as image...

Optimization of adaptive signal processing algorithms for wireless communications is based on a model of the underlying propagation channel. In practice, this model is never known perfectly. For example, its parameters have to be estimated and are only known with significant errors.

In this book, a systematic treatment of this practical design...
