This book contains some of the contributions that have been carefully selected and peer-reviewed, which were presented at the International Symposium MME06 Mathematical Methods in Engineering, held in Cankaya University, Ankara, April 2006. The Symposium provided a setting for discussing recent developments in Fractional Mathematics, Neutrices and Generalized Functions, Boundary Value Problems, Applications of Wavelets, Dynamical Systems and Control... more...

Chaos control refers to purposefully manipulating chaotic dynamical behaviors of some complex nonlinear systems. There exists no similar control theory-oriented book available in the market that is devoted to the subject of chaos control, written by control engineers for control engineers.  World-renowned leading experts in the field provide their state-of-the-art survey about the extensive research that has been done over the last few years in this... more...

A comprehensive overview of modern particle physics, which seeks to be accessible to anyone with a true passion for wanting to know how the universe works. We are introduced to the known particles of the world we live in. An explanation of quantum mechanics and relativity paves the way for an understanding of the laws that govern particle physics. These laws are put into action in the world of accelerators, colliders and detectors found at institutions... more...

The Workshop on Stochastic Theory and Control, sponsored by the NSF and KU, with co-technical sponsorship of the CSS, was held on October 18-20, 2001 at the University of Kansas in Lawrence, Kansas. A group of leading scholars in the field of stochastic theory and control, gathered at this event to discuss leading-edge topics of stochastic control, which includes risk sensitive control, adaptive control, mathematics of finance, estimation,... more...

Model-Based Control will be a collection of state-of-the-art contributions in the field of modelling, identification, robust control and optimization of dynamical systems, with particular attention to the application domains of motion control systems (high-accuracy positioning systems) and large scale industrial process control systems.The book will be directed to academic and industrial people involved in research in systems and... more...


This book provides the first clear, comprehensive, and accessible account of complex adaptive social systems, by two of the field's leading authorities. Such systems--whether political parties, stock markets, or ant colonies--present some of the most intriguing theoretical and practical challenges confronting the social sciences. Engagingly written, and balancing technical detail with intuitive explanations, Complex Adaptive Systems focuses on the key... more...

The role of singular trajectories in control theory is analysed in this volume that contains about 60 exercieses and problems. A section is devoted to the applications of singular trajectories to the optimisation of batch reactors. The theoretical paart based on the Martinet case concerns the singulatrity analysis of singular trajectories in sub-Riemannian geometry. An algorithm is gibven to evaluate conjugate points and a final chapter discusses open... more...

You may be: • trying to fix the healthcare system in your country... • dealing with family break-up... • exploring change - and making it happen - in your organisation... • worrying about how to look after your elderly parents... In any case, you'll know that with some problems it's hard to know where to start - we can't define them, we get in a muddle thinking about them, we may try to ignore some aspect/s of them and - when we finally do... more...

Systems biology is a critical emerging field that seeks to define the interactions of all biological components by examining underlying biochemical and genetic processes. It is a discipline that quantifies and annotates the complexity of biological systems in order to construct algorithmic models to predict outcomes from component input. Applications in medicine are revolutionizing our understanding of biological processes and systems. Systems... more...

Patterns are everywhere in nature - in the ranks of clouds in the sky, the stripes of an angelfish, the arrangement of petals in flowers. Where does this order and regularity come from? It creates itself. The patterns we see come from self-organization. Whether living or non-living, scientists have found that there is a pattern-forming tendency inherent in the basic structure and processes of nature, so that from a few simple themes, and the repetition... more...
