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.
In a series of lectures delivered in 1924, Dr. I.P. Pavlov reviewed his entire course of experiments, summarized his conclusions, and outlined his landmark psychological system. Until that time, Pavlov's investigations were known only through individual monographs, most of which had appeared in hard-to-find periodicals published in eastern Europe. This book- an expanded version of the lectures- is a full, authorized translation of the Novel Prize-winning scientist's work in experimental psychology.
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.
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.
A source of profound influence and controversy, this landmark 1915 work explains various phenomena of historical geology, geomorphy, paleontology, paleoclimatology, and similar areas in terms of continental drift. 64 illustrations. 1966 edition.
