Описание: Computer simulations is a fundamental tool of the design process in many engineering disciplines including aerospace engineering. However, although high-fidelity numerical models are accurate, they can be computationally expensive with evaluation time for a single design as long as hours, days or even weeks. Simulation-driven design using conventional optimization techniques may be therefore prohibitive.This book explores the alternative: performing computationally efficient design using surrogate-based optimization, where the high-fidelity model is replaced by its computationally cheap but still reasonably accurate representation: a surrogate. The emphasis is on physics-based surrogates. Application-wise, the focus is on aerodynamics and the methods and techniques described in the book are demonstrated using aerodynamic shape optimization cases. Applications in other engineering fields are also demonstrated.State-of-the-art techniques and a depth of coverage never published before make this a unique and essential book for all researchers working in aerospace and other engineering areas and dealing with optimization, computationally expensive design problems, and simulation-driven design.
Описание: Many problems in decision making, monitoring, fault detection, and control require the knowledge of state variables and time-varying parameters that are not directly measured by sensors. In such situations, observers, or estimators, can be employed that use the measured input and output signals along with a dynamic model of the system in order to estimate the unknown states or parameters. An essential requirement in designing an observer is to guarantee the convergence of the estimates to the true values or at least to a small neighborhood around the true values. However, for nonlinear, large-scale, or time-varying systems, the design and tuning of an observer is generally complicated and involves large computational costs. This book provides a range of methods and tools to design observers for nonlinear systems represented by a special type of a dynamic nonlinear model -- the Takagi--Sugeno (TS) fuzzy model. The TS model is a convex combination of affine linear models, which facilitates its stability analysis and observer design by using effective algorithms based on Lyapunov functions and linear matrix inequalities. Takagi--Sugeno models are known to be universal approximators and, in addition, a broad class of nonlinear systems can be exactly represented as a TS system. Three particular structures of large-scale TS models are considered: cascaded systems, distributed systems, and systems affected by unknown disturbances. The reader will find in-depth theoretic analysis accompanied by illustrative examples and simulations of real-world systems. Stability analysis of TS fuzzy systems is addressed in detail. The intended audience are graduate students and researchers both from academia and industry. For newcomers to the field, the book provides a concise introduction dynamic TS fuzzy models along with two methods to construct TS models for a given nonlinear system
Описание: This book is a wholly practical guide to the specification, development and programming of smart card systems, so you can eventually build your own smart card application. The book starts with a comprehensive introduction to the topic of smart cards, explaining component elements and the smart card microcontroller. It then moves on to providing information on operating systems, with application examples and case studies. The next chapters present design patterns for basic smart card systems and system architectures, leading up to setting out patterns for the realization of working applications. Chapter 7 gives useful advice on the monitoring of smart card applications, such as how to recognize potential attacks on its security and how to improve system integrity. The last two chapters go over issues that the smart card designer might encounter, discussing how to avoid and overcome design errors, and finally analysing real working applications.

Описание: Designing and Evaluating E-Managemnet Decision Tools presents the most relevant concepts for designing intelligent decision tools in an Internet-based multimedia environment and assessing the tools using concepts of statistical design of experiments. The design principle is based on the visual interactive decision modeling (VIDEMO) paradigm. Several case studies are discussed in detail, referring to online preference elicitation, collaborative decision making, negotiation and conflict resolution, and marketing decision optimization.

Описание: This book is designed to be a introductory reference/textbook for professionals and undergraduates and graduates in systems engineering. The book is also useful in related courses in other engineering programs that emphasize design methods and models. The book adopts the philosophy that performing systems engineering activities involves modeling of many different types. A number of generally understood systems are used to convey these modeling concepts and test the students' ability to create realistic models. This second edition will add some important new material regarding Systems Modeling Language (SysML) to several of the chapters. Object oriented, UML, and SysML architectural concepts will be introduced and accommodated in the book. There will be more descriptive material on usage scenarios based on literature from use case development. The homework assignments will be updated. The software product CORE (from Vitech Corporation) will be used to generate the SysML figures. This software product has been used by many professors as a teaching aid with the first edition.
Описание: Michael Mitchell's Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata is a clear treatment of how to carefully present results from model-fitting in a wide variety of settings. It is a boon to anyone who has to present the tangible meaning of a complex model in a clear fashion, regardless of the audience. As an example, many experienced researchers start to squirm when asked to give a simple explanation of the applied meaning of interactions in nonlinear models such as logistic regression. The tools in Mitchell's book make this task much more enjoyable and comprehensible. Mitchell starts with simple linear regression (which is simple in all ways), and then adds polynomials and discontinuities. This is followed by 2-way and 3-way interaction until interpretation of coefficients through words is difficult. By careful use of Stata's marginsplot command, Mitchell shows how well graphs can be used to show effects. He also includes careful verbal interpretation of coefficients to make communications complete. He then extends the methods from linear regression to various types of nonlinear regression, such as multilevel or survival models. A significant difference between this book and most others on regression models is that Mitchell spends quite some time on fitting and visualizing discontinuous models' models where the outcome can change value suddenly at thresholds. Such models are natural in settings such as education and policy evaluation, where graduation or policy changes can make sudden changes in income or revenue. This book is a worthwhile addition to the library of anyone involved in statistical consulting, teaching, or collaborative applied statistical environments.
