Title:Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy [electronic resource] : Fundamentals and Applications
Author(s): Reinhard Noll
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is a comprehensive source of the fundamentals, process parameters, instrumental components and applications of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The effect of multiple pulses on material ablation, plasmadynamics and plasma emissi on is presented. A heuristic plasma modeling allows to simulate complex experimental plasma spectra. These methods and findings form the basis for a variety of applications to perform quantitativemulti-element analysis with LIBS. These application potenti als of LIBS have really boosted in the last years ranging from bulk analysis of metallic alloys and non-conducting materials, via spatially resolved analysis and depthprofiling covering measuring objects in all physical states: gaseous, liquid and solid. Dedicated chapters present LIBS investigations for these tasks with special emphasis on the methodical and instrumental concepts as well as theoptimization strategies for a quantitative analysis. Requirements, concepts, design and characteristic features of LIBS instruments are described covering laboratory systems, inspections systems for in-line process control, mobilesystems and remote systems. State-of-the-art industrial applications of LIBS systems are presented demonstrating the benefits of inline p rocess control for improved process guiding and quality assurance purposes

Title:System Identification with Quantized Observations [electronic resource]

Date:2010
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents recently developed methodologies that utilize quantized information in system identification and explores their potential in extending control capabilities for systems with limited sensor information ornetworked systems. The result s of these methodologies can be applied to signal processing and control design of communication and computer networks, sensor networks, mobile agents, coordinated data fusion, remote sensing, telemedicine,and other fields in which noise-corrupted quantiz ed data need to be processed. Providing a comprehensive coverage of quantized identification, the book treats linear and nonlinear systems, as well as time-invariant and time-varyingsystems. The authors examine independent and dependent noises, stochastic - and deterministic-bounded noises, and also noises with unknown distribution functions. The key methodologies combine empirical measures andinformation-theoretic approaches to derive identification algorithms, provide convergence and convergence speed, e stablish efficiency of estimation, and explore input design, threshold selection and adaptation, and complexity analysis.System Identification with Quantized Observations is an excellent resource for graduate students, systems theorists, control engineers , applied mathematicians, as well as practitioners who use identification algorithms in their work.Selected material from the book may be used in graduate-level courses on system identification

Note:The paradigm of complexity is pervading both science and engineering, leading to the emergence of novel approaches oriented at the development of a systemic view of the phenomena under study the definition of powerful tools formodelling, estimation, and control and the cross-fertilization of different disciplines and approaches. This book is devoted to networked systems which are one of the most promising paradigms of complexity. It is demonstrated thatcomplex, dynamical networks are powerful tools t o model, estimate, and control many interesting phenomena, like agent coordination, synchronization, social and economics events, networks of critical infrastructures, resourcesallocation, information processing, or control over communication networks. Mo reover, it is shown how the recent technological advances in wireless communication and decreasing in cost and size of electronic devices are promoting theappearance of large inexpensive interconnected systems, each with computational, sensing and mobile capabilities
