Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling (Mathematics and Visualization)Algebraic Geometry and Geometric Modeling are two distinct domains of research, with few interactions up to now, though closely linked. On the one hand, Algebraic Geometry has developed an impressive theory targeting the understanding of geometric objects defined algebraically. On the other hand, Geometric Modeling is using every day, in practical...   Mathematical Models of Beams and Cables
Nonlinear models of elastic and viscoelastic onedimensional continuous structures (beams and cables) are formulated by the authors of this title. Several models of increasing complexity are presented: straight/curved, planar/nonplanar, extensible/inextensible, shearable/unshearable, warpingunsensitive/ sensitive, prestressed/unprestressed...   Nonparametric Tests for Censored Data
This book concerns testing hypotheses in nonparametric models. Generalizations of many nonparametric tests to the case of censored and truncated data are considered. Most of the test results are proved and real applications are illustrated using examples. Theories and exercises are provided. The incorrect use of many tests applying most... 

Robust Statistics: Theory and Methods (Probability and Statistics)Classical statistical techniques fail to cope well with deviations from a standard distribution. Robust statistical methods take into account these deviations while estimating the parameters of parametric models, thus increasing the accuracy of the inference. Research into robust methods is flourishing, with new methods being developed and...   Nonparametric System IdentificationPresenting a thorough overview of the theoretical foundations of nonparametric system identification for nonlinear blockoriented systems, this books shows that nonparametric regression can be successfully applied to system identification, and it highlights the achievements in doing so. With emphasis on Hammerstein, Wiener systems, and their...   

Handbook of LasersLasers continue to be an amazingly robust field of activity, one of continually expanding scientific and technological frontiers. Thus today we have lasing without inversion, quantum cascade lasers, lasing in strongly scattering media, lasing in biomaterials, lasing in photonic crystals, a single atom laser, speculation about black hole lasers,...   Implicit Objects Computer GraphicsImplicit definition and description of geometric objects and surfaces plays a critical role in the appearance and manipulation of computer graphics. In addition, the mathematical definition of shapes, using an implicit form, has pivotal applications for geometric modeling, visualization and animation. Until recently, the parametric form has been...   Introduction to the Geometry of Complex Numbers
The present work briefly develops the lectures which we have given since 1930 to the engineering candidates who chose the section of electromechanics at the Faculte polytechnique de Mons.
A memoir by Steinmetz 1 emphasized the simplifying role that can be played by the geometric interpretation of complex numbers in the...
