Examine what would happen if we were to deploy blockchain technology at the sovereign level and use it to create a decentralized cashless economy. This book explains how finance and economics work today, and how the convergence of various technologies related to the financial sector can help us find solutions to problems,...

This volume provides the latest developments in the field of fractional dynamics, which covers fractional (anomalous) transport phenomena, fractional statistical mechanics, fractional quantum mechanics and fractional quantum field theory. The contributors are selected based on their active and important contributions to their respective...

“a comprehensive overview of both DDS architectures and fractional-N frequency synthesizers.Â” Microwave Journal said this book Â“is aimed specifically at practical designers and utilizes many intuitive explanations and design examples.” Microwaves & RF magazine

Discontinuity in Nonlinear Physical Systems explores recent developments in experimental research in this broad field, organized in four distinct sections. Part I introduces the reader to the fractional dynamics and Lie group analysis for nonlinear partial differential equations. Part II covers chaos and complexity in nonlinear Hamiltonian...

This book features challenging problems of classical analysis that invite the reader to explore a host of strategies and tools used for solving problems of modern topics in real analysis. This volume offers an unusual collection of problems — many of them original — specializing in three topics of mathematical analysis: limits,...

The authors have written a rigorous yet elementary and self-contained book to present, in a unified framework, generalized convex functions, which are the many non-convex functions that share at least one of the valuable properties of convex functions and which are often more suitable for describing real-world problems. The book will be a useful...

Finally, the first comprehensive guide to MQL programming is here! Expert Advisor Programming guides you through the process of developing robust automated forex trading systems for the popular MetaTrader 4 platform. In this book, the author draws on several years of experience coding hundreds of expert advisors for retail traders worldwide....

How do we recognize that the number .93371663... is actually 21og1 0(e + 7r)/2 ? Gauss observed that the number 1.85407467... is (essentially) a rational value of an elliptic integral—an observation that was critical in the development of nineteenth century analysis. How do we decide that such a number is actually a special value of a...

This volume first introduces the mathematical tools necessary for understanding and working with a broad class of applied stochastic models. The toolbox includes Gaussian processes, independently scattered measures such as Gaussian white noise and Poisson random measures, stochastic integrals, compound Poisson, infinitely divisible and stable...

"For anyone wanting to learn about design of experiments, this book has it all. This book combines easy-to-read concepts and methods of design of experiments (DOE) with everyday examples and pictures. Anyone with even a cursory understanding of DOE can pick up this book and gain a very high-level understanding of DOE. The bottom line: This is...

Advances in Applied Mathematics and Approximation Theory: Contributions from AMAT 2012 is a collection of the best articles presented at “Applied Mathematics and Approximation Theory 2012,” an international conference held in Ankara, Turkey, May 17-20, 2012. This volume brings together key work from authors in the field...

Covering fractional order theory, simulation and experiments, this book explains how fractional order modelling and fractional order controller design compares favourably with traditional velocity and position control systems. The authors systematically compare the two approaches using applied fractional calculus. Stability theory in...
