Fundamentals of Statistical Signal Processing, Volume I: Estimation Theory (v. 1)

Fundamentals of Statistical Signal Processing, Volume I: Estimation Theory  (v. 1) Lowest new price: $104.97
Lowest used price: $104.00
List price: $137.00
Author: Steven M. Kay

A unified presentation of parameter estimation for those involved in the design and implementation of statistical signal processing algorithms. Covers important approaches to obtaining an optimal estimator and analyzing its performance; and includes numerous examples as well as applications to real- world problems. MARKETS: For practicing engineers and scientists who design and analyze signal processing systems, i.e., to extract information from noisy signals — radar engineer, sonar engineer, geophysicist, oceanographer, biomedical engineer, communications engineer, economist, statistician, physicist, etc.

This text is geared towards a one-semester graduate-level course in statistical signal processing and estimation theory. The author balances technical detail with practical and implementation issues, delivering an exposition that is both theoretically rigorous and application-oriented. The book covers topics such as minimum variance unbiased estimators, the Cramer-Rao bound, best linear unbiased estimators, maximum likelihood estimation, recursive least squares, Bayesian estimation techniques, and the Wiener and Kalman filters. The author provides numerous examples, which illustrate both theory and applications for problems such as high-resolution spectral analysis, system identification, digital filter design, adaptive beamforming and noise cancellation, and tracking and localization. The primary audience will be those involved in the design and implementation of optimal estimation algorithms on digital computers. The text assumes that you have a background in probability and random processes and linear and matrix algebra and exposure to basic signal processing. Students as well as researchers and practicing engineers will find the text an invaluable introduction and resource for scalar and vector parameter estimation theory and a convenient reference for the design of successive parameter estimation algorithms.

The Lazy Universe: An Introduction to the Principle of Least Action

The Lazy Universe: An Introduction to the Principle of Least Action Lowest new price: $36.27
Lowest used price: $35.75
List price: $39.95
Author: Jennifer Coopersmith
Brand: Ingramcontent

This is a rare book on a rare topic: it is about 'action' and the Principle of Least Action. A surprisingly well-kept secret, these ideas are at the heart of physical science and engineering. Physics is well known as being concerned with grand conservatory principles (e.g. the conservation of energy) but equally important is the optimization principle (such as getting somewhere in the shortest time or with the least resistance). The book explains: why an optimization principle underlies physics, what action is, what `the Hamiltonian' is, and how new insights into energy, space, and time arise. It assumes some background in the physical sciences, at the level of undergraduate science, but it is not a textbook. The requisite derivations and worked examples are given but may be skim-read if desired.

The author draws from Cornelius Lanczos's book "The Variational Principles of Mechanics" (1949 and 1970). Lanczos was a brilliant mathematician and educator, but his book was for a postgraduate audience. The present book is no mere copy with the difficult bits left out - it is original, and a popularization. It aims to explain ideas rather than achieve technical competence, and to show how Least Action leads into the whole of physics.

Surface Roughness and Tool Vibrations in Turning Operation: Prediction based on Cutting Variables in Turning Operation Lowest new price: $68.34
Lowest used price: $71.76
List price: $76.00
Author: Ossama Abouelatta
Brand: Abouelatta Ossama

The ability to predict the surface texture of a machined part allows engineers to select appropriate process inputs such as cutting conditions and tool geometry during the design process, in order to control the required surface quality. In machining operations, the quality of surface finish is an important requirement for many turned workpieces. Thus, the choice of optimized cutting parameters is very important for controlling the required surface quality. The focus of the this work is to find a correlation between surface roughness and cutting vibrations in turning, and to derive mathematical models for the predicted roughness parameters based both on cutting parameters and machine tool vibrations. The correlation coefficient was calculated by collecting and analyzing data generated by turning mild carbon steel samples at different levels of speed, feed, depth of cut, tool nose radius, tool length, approach angle, workpiece diameter, workpiece length and tool frequency. An additional aim of the work is to find a mathematical model for the predicted roughness parameters, based on both cutting parameters and machine tool vibrations.
