› Find signed collectible books: 'Approximation and Weak Convergence Methods for Random Processes with Applications to Stochastic Systems Theory (Signal Processing, Optimization, and Control)'
Control and communications engineers, physicists, and probability theorists, among others, will find this book unique. It contains a detailed development of approximation and limit theorems and methods for random processes and applies them to numerous problems of practical importance. In particular, it develops usable and broad conditions and techniques for showing that a sequence of processes converges to a Markov diffusion or jump process. This is useful when the natural physical model is quite complex, in which case a simpler approximation la diffusion process, for example) is usually made.The book simplifies and extends some important older methods and develops some powerful new ones applicable to a wide variety of limit and approximation problems. The theory of weak convergence of probability measures is introduced along with general and usable methods (for example, perturbed test function, martingale, and direct averaging) for proving tightness and weak convergence.Kushner's study begins with a systematic development of the method. It then treats dynamical system models that have state-dependent noise or nonsmooth dynamics. Perturbed Liapunov function methods are developed for stability studies of nonMarkovian problems and for the study of asymptotic distributions of non-Markovian systems. Three chapters are devoted to applications in control and communication theory (for example, phase-locked loops and adoptive filters). Smallnoise problems and an introduction to the theory of large deviations and applications conclude the book.Harold J. Kushner is Professor of Applied Mathematics and Engineering at Brown University and is one of the leading researchers in the area of stochastic processes concerned with analysis and synthesis in control and communications theory. This book is the sixth in The MIT Press Series in Signal Processing, Optimization, and Control, edited by Alan S. Willsky.

Jewish Fathers: A Legacy of Love is a moving collection of heartfelt stories and stirring photographs celebrating and honoring the lives of contemporary American Jewish fathers. The image of the Jewish father is synonymous with the Yiddish word mensch, a good,kind, decent, human being. The word mensch has become part of America's vocabulary. The first mensch that we meet in life is usually our father. Honest. Hardworking. Fair. Reliable. Charitable. Funny. Reverent. Mature. Honorable. Learned. Righteous. Responsible. A mensch. It is a standard to be lived up to, a standard that Jewish fathers have been charged with since the times of the biblical patriarchs, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Family matters. Fathers matter.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Weak Convergence Methods and Singularly Perturbed Stochastic Control and Filtering Problems (Systems & Control: Foundations & Applications)'
The book deals with several closely related topics concerning approxima tions and perturbations of random processes and their applications to some important and fascinating classes of problems in the analysis and design of stochastic control systems and nonlinear filters. The basic mathematical methods which are used and developed are those of the theory of weak con vergence. The techniques are quite powerful for getting weak convergence or functional limit theorems for broad classes of problems and many of the techniques are new. The original need for some of the techniques which are developed here arose in connection with our study of the particular applica tions in this book, and related problems of approximation in control theory, but it will be clear that they have numerous applications elsewhere in weak convergence and process approximation theory. The book is a continuation of the author's long term interest in problems of the approximation of stochastic processes and its applications to problems arising in control and communication theory and related areas. In fact, the techniques used here can be fruitfully applied to many other areas. The basic random processes of interest can be described by solutions to either (multiple time scale) Ito differential equations driven by wide band or state dependent wide band noise or which are singularly perturbed. They might be controlled or not, and their state values might be fully observable or not (e. g. , as in the nonlinear filtering problem).

'There is no Answer but there are answers...' Rabbi Kushner's previous bestseller brought comfort to millions by helping them cope with life's shattering tragedies. Now he applies his compassionate mind to another kind of problem, one more delicate that that of sudden tradgedy, but just as dangerous - the felling that life is utterly meaningless. 'Again, I came away impressed and consoled...This book affectingly teaches what Ecclesiastes learned: happiness derives not from wealth, power, learning, indulgence even religiosity, but from living fully in the moment, becoming a good human being, risking the pain of giving yourself to what matters' Los Angeles Times. 'Sensible and helpful...At a time when most self-help manuals are topical consumer reading, it is refreshing to find one that attempts to deal with the timeless' New York Times 'A thoughtful, well-reasoned meditation and a useful spiritual manual' Washington Post 'Wise, compassionate, and sure to be in demand' New York Library Journal
