Editorial Review Product Description Based on a streamlined presentation of the authors' successful work Linear Systems, this textbook provides an introduction to systems theory with an emphasis on control. The material presented is broad enough to give the reader a clear picture of the dynamical behavior of linear systems as well as their advantages and limitations. Fundamental results and topics essential to linear systems theory are emphasized. The emphasis is on time-invariant systems, both continuous- and discrete-time.
Key features and topics: * Notes, references, exercises, and a summary and highlights section at the end of each chapter. * Comprehensive index and answers to selected exercises at the end of the book. * Necessary mathematical background material included in an appendix. * Helpful guidelines for the reader in the preface. * Three core chapters guiding the reader to an excellent understanding of the dynamical behavior of systems. * Detailed coverage of internal and external system descriptions, including state variable, impulse response and transfer function, polynomial matrix, and fractional representations. * Explanation of stability, controllability, observability, and realizations with an emphasis on fundamental results. * Detailed discussion of state-feedback, state-estimation, and eigenvalue assignment. * Emphasis on time-invariant systems, both continuous- and discrete-time. For full coverage of time-variant systems, the reader is encouraged to refer to the companion book Linear Systems, which contains more detailed descriptions and additional material, including all the proofs of the results presented here. * Solutions manual available to instructors upon adoption of the text.
A Linear Systems Primer is geared towards first-year graduate and senior undergraduate students in a typical one-semester introductory course on systems and control. It may also serve as an excellent reference or self-study guide for electrical, mechanical, chemical, and aerospace engineers, applied mathematicians, and researchers working in control, communications, and signal processing.

Editorial Review Product Description This book provides an introduction to the scientific fundamentals of groundwater and geothermal systems. In a simple and didactic manner the different water and energy problems existing in deformable porous rocks are explained as well as the corresponding theories and the mathematical and numerical tools that lead to modeling and solving them. This approach provides the reader with a thorough understanding of the basic physical laws of thermoporoelastic rocks, the partial differential equations representing these laws and the principal numerical methods, which allow finding approximate solutions of the corresponding mathematical models. The book also presents the form in which specific useful models can be generated and solved. The text is introductory in the sense that it explains basic themes of the systems mentioned in three areas: engineering, physics and mathematics. All the laws and equations introduced in this book are formulated carefully based on fundamental physical principles. This way, the reader will understand the key importance of mathematics applied to all the subjects. Simple models are emphasized and solved with numerous examples. For more sophisticated and advanced models the numerical techniques are described and developed carefully. |

Elucidates the Forgotten History behindMathematical Numbers
Number Mystery
A no frills, no fluffy bunny explanation of number theory
A bit stilted and dense, but fascinating nevertheless If you don'tmind sometimes long and verbose reading, then this is certainly one of thebest works on the subject out there.I would quibble that Menninger givesthe East less coverage than the West, but his comparisons of number wordsacross Indo-European languages is simply fascinating. Also, too are histheories about how the displacement of one language by another in a regioncan often lead to weird anomalies in number counting.

Editorial Review Product Description This book deals with several aspects of what is now called "explicit number theory." The central theme is the solution of Diophantine equations, i.e., equations or systems of polynomial equations which must be solved in integers, rational numbers or more generally in algebraic numbers. This theme, in particular, is the central motivation for the modern theory of arithmetic algebraic geometry. In this text, this is considered through three of its most basic aspects. The local aspect, global aspect, and the third aspect is the theory of zeta and L-functions. This last aspect can be considered as a unifying theme for the whole subject. |
