Subject: New Book, The Statistical Theory of Linear Systems

Announcing the April 12, 2012, publication by SIAM of:
The Statistical Theory of Linear Systems, by
E. J. Hannan and Manfred Deistler

2012 / xlvi + 380 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611972-18-4 /
List Price $99.00 / SIAM Member Price $69.30 / Order Code CL70

Originally published in 1988, The Statistical Theory of Linear Systems
deals with identification (in the sense of obtaining a model from
data) of multi-input and multi-output linear systems, in particular
systems in ARMAX and state space form.

The book emphasizes the underlying theory. It covers structure theory,
in particular realization and parameterization of linear systems, with
special emphasis on the analysis of properties of parameter spaces and
parameterizations relevant for estimation and model selection;
Gaussian maximum likelihood estimation of the real-valued parameters
of linear systems, with an emphasis on asymptotic theory; model
selection, in particular order estimation, by information criteria
such as AIC or BIC, with an emphasis on asymptotic theory; procedures
for calculation of estimates; and approximation by rational functions.

This edition includes an extensive new introduction that outlines
central ideas and features of the subject matter, as well as
developments since the book’s original publication, such as subspace
identification, data-driven local coordinates, and the results on
post-model-selection estimators. It also provides a section of errata
and an updated bibliography.

Subject: New Book, Computational Matrix Analysis

Computational Matrix Analysis, by Alan J. Laub
2012 / xiv + 154 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611972-20-7 /
List Price $47.00 / SIAM Member Price $32.90 / Order Code OT125

Using an approach that author Alan Laub calls “matrix analysis for
grown-ups,” this new textbook introduces fundamental concepts of
numerical linear algebra and their application to solving certain
numerical problems arising in state- space control and systems
theory. It is written for advanced undergraduate and beginning
graduate students and can be used as a follow-up to Matrix Analysis
for Scientists and Engineers (SIAM, 2005), a compact single-semester
introduction to matrix analysis for engineers and computational
scientists by the same author.

Computational Matrix Analysis provides readers with a one-semester
introduction to numerical linear algebra; an introduction to
statistical condition estimation in book form for the first time; and
an overview of certain computational problems in control and systems

Contents: Preface; Chapter 1: Preliminaries and Notation; Chapter 2:
Introduction to Finite Arithmetic; Chapter 3: Conditioning and
Numerical Stability; Chapter 4: Introduction to Rounding Analysis;
Chapter 5: Numerical Matrix Algebra; Chapter 6: Gaussian Elimination;

Subject: Modeling and Sim of Wave Prop & Apps, Saudi Arabia, May 2012

Robust and accurate simulations of wave propagation in complex media
are essential for many important industrial applications ranging from
seismic imaging to medical tomography. Challenges in this area include
developing robust discretization techniques that are accurate, less
sensitive to wave number, and are scalable on state-of-the-art
computer architectures. The focus areas of this workshop are:
- Advanced discretization techniques.
- Modeling of wave propagation in heterogeneous and random media.
- Subgrid models and multiscale discretization techniques for wave
equations in complex media.
- Uncertainty quantification in wave propagation.
- Solvers for wave equations in complex media.
- Applications to geophysics.
- High-performance computation and visualization tools for large-scale
wave simulations.
This workshop will bring together researchers from academia and
industry, with the goal of facilitating the exchange of ideas to
improve modeling and simulation predictions. The workshop will consist
of a number of invited presentations. In addition, we particularly
encourage poster presentations from workshop participants.
The workshop will be hosted by the King Abdullah University of Science
and Technology (KAUST) in Thuwal, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The
location, schedule, and facilities will allow for plenty of
interactions among participants. Support will be provided by a
mixture of funds from KAUST, Texas A&M University's (TAMU) Institute
for Applied Mathematics and Computational Science (IAMCS), and TAMU's
Institute for Scientific Computation (ISC). There is no registration
fee. Interested participants should contact
for information and assistance with registration, accommodation, or
airport transfer. Information will be provided at .
