Performance Analysis of Queuing and Computer Networks develops simple models and analytical methods from first principles to evaluate performance metrics of various configurations of computer systems and networks. It presents many concepts and results of probability theory and stochastic processes.

Coalgebraic logic is an important research topic in the areas of concurrency theory, semantics, transition systems and modal logics. It provides a general approach to modeling systems, allowing us to apply important results from coalgebras, universal algebra and category theory in novel ways. Stochastic systems provide important tools for...

Praise for STRUCTURED FINANCE MODELING with Object-Oriented VBA

"This book is an excellent and interesting integration of financial engineering, structured finance, and structured programming, and the book accomplishes this with easy-to-follow examples, using the most commonly available tools, MS VBA and spreadsheets. The author is clearly...

Traditional methods for handling spatial data are encumbered by the assumption of separate origins for horizontal and vertical measurements. Modern measurement systems operate in a 3-D spatial environment. The 3-D Global Spatial Data Model: Foundation of the Spatial Data Infrastructure offers a new model for handling digital...

"This interesting monograph is devoted to the study of multi-agent, populations of biological cells and robot teams. … The main objective of the approach is to provide solutions to the problem of how dynamics of an individual agent propagates to the population dynamics. … This original monograph has a wide...

Digital Transmission – A Simulation-Aided Introduction with VisSim/Comm is a book in which basic principles of digital communication, mainly pertaining to the physical layer, are emphasized. Nevertheless, these principles can serve as the fundamentals that will help the reader to understand more advanced topics and the associated...

Risk control, capital allocation, and realistic derivative pricing and hedging are critical concerns for major financial institutions and individual traders alike. Events from the collapse of Lehman Brothers to the Greek sovereign debt crisis demonstrate the urgent and abiding need for statistical tools...

The importance of path-integral methods in theoretical physics can hardly be disputed. Their applications in most branches of modern physics have proved to be extremely fruitful not only for solving already existing problems but also as a guide for the formulation and development of essentially new ideas and approaches in the description of...

Random signals and noise are present in many engineering systems and networks. Signal processing techniques allow engineers to distinguish between useful signals in audio, video or communication equipment, and interference, which disturbs the desired signal.

With a strong mathematical grounding, this text...

This is a textbook for a one-semester graduate course in measure-theoretic probability theory, but with ample material to cover an ordinary year-long course at a more leisurely pace. Khoshnevisan's approach is to develop the ideas that are absolutely central to modern probability theory, and to showcase them by presenting their various...

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this book provides coverage from seismological and engineering, deterministic and stochastic, as well as physical and mathematical points of view. The author describes the estimation of spatial variability from recorded data, its physical interpretation, and the development of spatial variability/coherency...
