Note:State-space models as an important mathematical tool has been widely used in many different fields. This edited collection explores recent theoretical developments of the models and their applications in economics and finance. Thebook includes nonlin ear andnon-Gaussian time series models, regime-switching and hidden Markov models, continuous- or discrete-time state processes, and models of equally-spaced or irregularly-spaced (discrete or continuous)observations.The contributed chapters are divided i nto four parts. The first part is on Particle Filtering and Parameter Learning in Nonlinear State-Space Models.The second part focuseson the application of Linear State-SpaceModels in Macroeconomics and Finance.The third part deals with Hidden Markov Mode ls, Regime Switching and Mathematical Finance and the fourth part is on Nonlinear State-Space Models for High Frequency Financial Data. The book willappeal to graduate students and researchers studying state-space modeling in economics, statistics, and ma thematics, as well as to finance professionals. Yong Zeng is a professor in Department of Mathematics and Statistics atUniversity of Missouri at Kansas City. His main research interest includes mathematical finance, financial econometrics, stochastic nonl inear filtering, and Bayesian statistical analysis. Notably, he developed the statistical analysisvia filtering for financial ultra-high frequency data, where the model can be viewed as a random-arrival-time state space model. He has published in Mathemat ical Finance, International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Finance,Applied Mathematical Finance, IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control, Statistical Inference for Stochastic Processes, among others. He held visiting associate professor positions at Pr inceton University and the University of Tennessee.He received his B.S. from Fudan University in 1990, M.S. from University of Georgia in 1994, and Ph.D. from University of Wisconsin at Ma

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:I believe that the authors have written a first-class book which can be used for a second or third year graduate level course in the subject... Researchers working in the area will certainly use the book as a standardreference... Given how well the b ook is written and organized, it is sure to become one of the major texts in the subject in the years to come, and it is highly recommended to both researchers working in the field, and those who wantto learn about the subject. SIAM Review (Review of the First Edition) This book is devoted to one of the fastest developing fields in modern control theory---the so-called 'H-infinity optimal control theory'... In the authors'opinion 'the theory is now at a stage where it can easily be incorporated into a sec ond-level graduate course in a control curriculum'. It seems that this book justifies this claim. Mathematical Reviews (Review of the FirstEdition) This work is a perfect and extensive research reference covering the state-space techniques for solving lin ear as well as nonlinear H-infinity control problems. IEEE Transactions on Automatic Control (Review of theSecond Edition) The book, based mostly on recent work of the authors, is written on a good mathematical level. Many results in it are original, inte resting, and inspirational...The book can be recommended to specialists and graduatestudents working in the development of control theory or using modern methods for controller design. Mathematica Bohemica (Review of the Second Edition) This book is a sec ond edition of this very well-known text on H-infinitytheory...This topic is central to modern control and hence this definitive book is highly recommended to anyone who wishes to catch up with this important theoretical development in applied mathematics and control.

Title:Graphs, Dioids and Semirings [electronic resource] : New Models and Algorithms
Author(s): Michel Gondran
Michel Minoux
Date:2008
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The origins of Graph Theory date back to Euler (1736) with the solution of the celebrated 'Koenigsberg Bridges Problem' and to Hamilton with the famous 'Trip around the World' game (1859), stating for the first time a problemwhich, in its most recent version the 'Traveling Salesman Problem' -, is still the subject of active research. Yet, it has been during the last fifty years or sowith the rise of the electronic computersthat Graph theory hasbecome an indispensable discipline in terms of the numbe r and importance of its applications across the Applied Sciences. Graph theory has been especially central to Theoretical and Algorithmic Computer Science, and Automatic Control,Systems Optimization, Economy and Operations Research, Data Analysis in the E ngineering Sciences. Close connections between graphs and algebraic structures have been widely used in the analysis and implementation of efficientalgorithms for many problems, for example: transportation network optimization, telecommunication network o ptimization and planning, optimization in scheduling and production systems, etc. The primary objectives of GRAPHS, DIODS ANDSEMIRINGS: New Models and Algorithms are to emphasize the deep relations existing between the semiring and diod structures with gr aphs and their combinatorial properties, while demonstrating the modeling and problem-solvingcapability and flexibility of these structures. In addition the book provides an extensive overview of the mathematical properties employed by nonclassical algebr aic structures, which either extend usual algebra (i.e., semirings),or correspond to a new branch of algebra (i.e., diods), apart from the classical structures of groups, rings, and fields

Note:This volume is an outgrowth of the workshop Applications of Advanced Control Theory to Robotics and Automation, organized in honor of the 70th birthdays of Petar V. Kokotovic and Salvatore (Turi) Nicosia. Both Petar and Turihave carried out distingui shed work in the control community and have long been recognized as mentors, experts, and pioneers in the field of automatic control, covering many topics in control theory and several different applications.The variety of their research is reflected in t his book, which includes contributions from leading experts in the field ranging from mathematics to laboratory experiments. Main topics covered include: * State Estimation andIdentification: observer designs for nonlinear systems and linear time-delay sy stems, as well as identification techniques for linear, nonlinear, piecewise linear, and hybrid systems. * Control and System Theory: theoretical resultsrelated to the analysis and control of dynamical systems, including a presentation of Lyapunov tools f or linear differential inclusions, a study of the control of constrained systems, and a treatment of finite-time stability concepts.* Robotics: new studies of robot manipulators, parameter identification, and different control problems for mobile robots. * Control of Electromechanical Systems: applications of modern control techniques to port-controlled Hamiltoniansystems, different classes of vehicles, and web processing systems. * Manufacturing Systems: applications of the max-plus algebra to system agg regation, optimal machine scheduling problems, and inventory control with cooperationbetween retailers. * Networked Control Systems: analysis and design problems related to linear and nonlinear networked control systems. The scope of the work is quite bro ad, and although each chapter is self-contained, the book hasbeen organized into thematically related chapters, and in some cases, convenient reading sequences are suggested to the reader.
