Synopsis

A Functional Analysis Framework for Modeling, Estimation and Control in Science and Engineering by H.T. (North Carolina State University, Raleigh, USA) Banks

A Modern Framework Based on Time-Tested Material A Functional Analysis Framework for Modeling, Estimation and Control in Science and Engineering presents functional analysis as a tool for understanding and treating distributed parameter systems. Drawing on his extensive research and teaching from the past 20 years, the author explains how functional analysis can be the basis of modern partial differential equation (PDE) and delay differential equation (DDE) techniques. Recent Examples of Functional Analysis in Biology, Electromagnetics, Materials, and Mechanics Through numerous application examples, the book illustrates the role that functional analysis-a classical subject-continues to play in the rigorous formulation of modern applied areas. The text covers common examples, such as thermal diffusion, transport in tissue, and beam vibration, as well as less traditional ones, including HIV models, uncertainty in noncooperative games, structured population models, electromagnetics in materials, delay systems, and PDEs in control and inverse problems. For some applications, computational aspects are discussed since many problems necessitate a numerical approach.

Reviews

The book under review has the valuable advantage of being of interest to both mathematicians and engineers. ... appropriate tools are carefully introduced and discussed in detail, and they are readily applied to practical situations related to the models derived from the generic examples. The main thrust of the book consists of those parts and topics of functional analysis that are fundamental to rigorous discussions of practical differential equations and delay systems as they arise in diverse applications and in particular in control and estimation. -Larbi Berrahmoune, Mathematical Reviews, May 2013

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

Barry Griffiths

I love 'try before you buy' extracts. I love the wide range of authors & genres. I love the author info. I love books!

Judi Davies

Lovereading is pitched at just the right level for all the various types of people who enjoy reading in its many forms.

Pam Woodburn

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading helps me decide what real people read.

Kerry Bridges

I read new, exciting writers and established authors before publication and there is a great website full of brilliant books and opinions.

Lynda

Lovereading recommends, honestly reviews and promotes books-what more can I say?!
