Accessible to nonmathematical students. Introduction. 1962 edition.
Introduction to mathematical theory of multistage decision processes takes a "functional equation" approach. Topics include existence and uniqueness theorems, optimal inventory equation, bottleneck problems, multistage games, Markovian decision processes, and more. 1957 edition.
Suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students, this overview introduces theoretical and practical aspects of adaptive control, with emphasis on deterministic and stochastic viewpoints. 1995 edition.
Originally prepared for the Office of Naval Research, this important monograph introduces various methods for the asymptotic evaluation of integrals containing a large parameter, and solutions of ordinary linear differential equations by means of asymptotic expansions. Author's preface. Bibliography.
This classic text covers order statistics and their exceedances; exact distribution of extremes; the 1st asymptotic distribution; uses of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd asymptotes; more. 1958 edition. Includes 44 tables and 97 graphs.
In a work of stunning and well-reasoned scholarship, a famous anarchist posits that the most effective human and animal communities are essentially cooperative, rather than competitive. A powerful counterpoint to the tenets of Social Darwinism.
"As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he" forms the basis of this inspirational classic stressing positive thinking as the key to happiness. Includes Morning and Evening Thoughts, a collection of daily meditations.
Detailed enough to serve as both text and reference, this volume addresses topics vital to understanding high-power accelerators and high-brightness-charged particle beams, including stochastic cooling, high-brightness injectors, and free electron laser. 1990 edition.
