Bayesian inference provides a simple and unified approach to data analysis, allowing experimenters to assign probabilities to competing hypotheses of interest, on the basis of the current state of knowledge. By incorporating relevant prior information, it can sometimes improve model parameter estimates by many orders of magnitude. This book...

Long employed in electrical engineering, the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) is now applied in a range of fields through the use of digital computers and fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithms. But to correctly interpret DFT results, it is essential to understand the core and tools of Fourier analysis. Discrete and Continuous Fourier...

This book presents an introduction to the principles of the fast Fourier transform
(FFT). It covers FFTs, frequency domain filtering, and applications to video and
audio signal processing.

As fields like communications, speech and image processing, and related areas
are rapidly developing, the FFT as one of the essential...

Through previous editions, Peter O'Neil has made rigorous engineering mathematics topics accessible to thousands of students by emphasizing visuals, numerous examples, and interesting mathematical models. Advanced Engineering Mathematics features a greater number of examples and problems and is fine-tuned throughout to improve the clear...

In this text we present a technical overview of the emerging field of quantum computation along with new research results by the authors. What distinguishes our presentation from that of others is our focus on the relationship between quantum computation and computer science. Specifically, our emphasis is on the computational model of quantum...

It is hoped that this book will serve both as a text in time-series analysis and signal processing and as a reference book for research workers and practitioners. Timeseries analysis and signal processing are two subjects which ought to be treated as one; and they are the concern of a wide range of applied disciplines including statistics,...

I cannot help but find striking resemblances between scientific communities and schools of fish. We interact in conferences and through articles, and we move together while a global trajectory emerges from individual contributions. Some of us like to be at the center of the school, others prefer to wander around, and a few swim in multiple...

The goal of this Lecture Note is to prove a new type of limit theorems for normalized sums of strongly dependent random variables that play an important role in probability theory or in statistical physics. Here non-linear functionals of stationary Gaussian fields are considered, and it is shown that the theory of Wiener–Itô...

In recent years, Fourier transform methods have emerged as one of the major methodologies for the evaluation of derivative contracts, largely due to the need to strike a balance between the extension of existing pricing models beyond the traditional Black-Scholes setting and a need to evaluate prices consistently with the market...

The Kronecker product of matrices plays a central role in mathematics and in applications found in engineering and theoretical physics. These applications are signal processing, statistical physics, quantum groups and quantum computers. This text provides a comprehensive introduction to the Kronecker product of matrices together with its...
