Computational Geomechanics and Hydraulic Structures

Computational Geomechanics and Hydraulic Structures by Sheng-Hong Chen
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 908 Pages | ISBN : 9811081344 | 50.79 MB

This book presents recent research into developing and applying computational tools to estimate the performance and safety of hydraulic structures from the planning and construction stage to the service period. Based on the results of a close collaboration between the author and his colleagues, friends, students and field engineers, it shows how to achieve a good correlation between numerical computation and the actual in situ behavior of hydraulic structures.

Wavelet Packets and Their Statistical Applications

Wavelet Packets and Their Statistical Applications by Khalil Ahmad
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 249 Page s| ISBN : 9811302677 | 10.38 MB

This book presents the basic concepts of functional analysis, wavelet analysis and thresholding. It begins with an elementary chapter on preliminaries such as basic concepts of functional analysis, a brief tour of the wavelet transform, Haar scaling functions and function space, wavelets, symlets wavelets and coiflets wavelets. In turn, Chapters 2 and 3 address the construction of wavelet packets, selected results on wavelet packets, band-limited wavelet packets, characterisations of wavelet packets, multiresolution analysis (MRA) wavelet packets, pointwise convergence, the convergence of wavelet packet series and convolution bounds. Chapter 4 discusses characterisations of function spaces like Lebesgue spaces, Hardy spaces and Sobolev spaces in terms of wavelet packets, while Chapter 5 is devoted to applications of wavelets and wavelet packets in speech denoising and biomedical signals. In closing, Chapter 6 highlights applications of wavelets and wavelet packets in image denoising.

The Philosophy of Quantum Physics

The Philosophy of Quantum Physics by Cord Friebe
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 34 Pages | ISBN : 3319783548 | 6.74 MB

This book provides a thorough and up-to-date introduction to the philosophy of quantum physics. Although quantum theory is renowned for its spectacular empirical successes, controversial discussion about how it should be understood continue to rage today. In this volume, the authors provide an overview of its numerous philosophical challenges: Do quantum objects violate the principle of causality? Are particles of the same type indistinguishable and therefore not individual entities? Do quantum objects retain their identity over time? How does a compound quantum system relate to its parts? These questions are answered here within different interpretational approaches to quantum theory. Finally, moving to Quantum Field Theory, we find that the problem of non-locality is exacerbated.

Introduction to Diagnosis of Active Systems

Introduction to Diagnosis of Active Systems by Gianfranco Lamperti
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 360 Pages | ISBN : 3319927310 | 6.83 MB

This book is an up-to-date self-contained compendium of the research carried out by the authors on model-based diagnosis of a class of discrete-event systems called active systems. After defining the diagnosis problem, the book copes with a variety of reasoning mechanisms that generate the diagnosis, possibly within a monitoring setting. The book is structured into twelve chapters, each of which has its own introduction and concludes with bibliographic notes and itemized summaries.
