Stochastic Processes in Mechanical Engineering By J.J.H. Brouwers
Paperback: $9.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
Stochastic or random vibrations occur in a variety of applications of mechanical engineering. Examples are: the dynamics of a vehicle on an irregular road surface; the variation in time of... More > thermodynamic variables in municipal waste incinerators due to fluctuations in heating value of the waste; the vibrations of an airplane flying through turbulence; the fluctuating wind loads acting on civil structures; the response of off-shore structures to random wave loading. Attention is focussed on problems of external noise. That is, models of mechanical engineering structures are considered where the source of random behavior comes from outside: e.g. a prescribed random force or a prescribed random displacement. The structures inhibit inertia, damping and restoring, linear and non-linear. Questions addressed are: how do these structures respond to random excitation, and how to quantify the random behavior of response variables in a manner that an engineer is able to make rational design decisions.< Less

STOCHASTIC PHILOSOPHY OF COSMOGENESIS By Michel XILINAS
Hardcover: List Price: $19.00 $17.10 | You Save: 10%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Michel Xilinas describes three time episodes of the Universe: the evolution from the so called Big Bang to our days, the pre-Bing Bang events and the post our time future. The first episode unveils... More > a Universe from the automatic creation of an elementary particle up to the extraordinary evolution to the human being as we are on Earth. The materials are exposed in an organized scheduled sequence. The second episode is the stochastic proposal of a fully automatic creational process that allows the formation from an immaterial situation named as “beyond” of a new Universe. This revolutionary approach is based on the Casimir effect, Heisenberg uncertainty principle, Dirac’s delta function and Dirac’s superposition research incorporated in Michel’s stochastic approach. The third episode is the future with a new theory on the end of the Universe. Michel Xilinas, MD, DSc, DPH, is a Physician working in Drug Development and has numerous inventions. He is the author of medical, philosophical and drama books.< Less

This book discusses subjects related to pre Big Bang creation and the automatic genesis of Universes concluding to a general theory of creation and evolution. In this approach, experimental evidence... More > and scientific hypotheses are presented leading to the conclusion of an automatic endless creation prior to the initial Bing Bang up to the development of the human mind. The basis of the automatic pre Big Bang creation is the postulation of a situation defined as “beyond” or επέκεινα, that is free of all dimensions, time, fields, functions, variables and other properties, excluding the function of bouncing from virtual particles to real particles. The Casimir effect and Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle are used as supportive evidence. The twenty-nine plates illustrate the principles described in the various chapters. A section resuming the main points of the book follows as Q&A section. Michel Xilinas, MD, DSc is a medical researcher, writer and philosopher.< Less

Approximation and Solution Schemes for Stochastic Dynamic Optimization Problems By Lisa A. Korf
Paperback: $14.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Optimization and control problems often need to be formulated in a way that takes the uncertainty of the future into account in order to accurately reflect a "good" decision that can stand... More > up to a variety of possible future outcomes. One way of including uncertainty in such problems treats the uncertain parameters as a random vector with an underlying probability distribution. Doing this creates a stochastic programming model which is inherently infinite dimensional, or at best extremely large, in particular when many time stages are present. In order to solve such problems, a good approximation framework is needed that encompasses various approaches such as sampling and analytical methods for various problem classes. Complementing this should be a development of solution procedures that exploit a problem's structure, for example taking advantage of convexity and decomposability wherever possible. This dissertation addresses these key issues in four parts.< Less
