Machine Learning A Bayesian and Optimization Perspective By Sergios Theodoridis

Description This tutorial text gives a unifying perspective on machine learning by covering both probabilistic and deterministic approaches -which are based on optimization techniques – together with the Bayesian inference approach, whose essence lies in the use of a hierarchy of probabilistic models. The book presents the major machine learning methods as they have been developed in different disciplines, such as statistics, statistical and adaptive signal processing and computer science. Focusing on the physical reasoning behind the mathematics, all the various methods and techniques are explained in depth, supported by examples and…

Hydraulics and Pneumatics A Technician’s and Engineer’s Guide Second Edition By Andrew Parr

Description Nearly all industrial processes require objects to be moved, manipulated or subjected to some sort of force. This is frequently accomplished by means of electrical equipment (such as motors or solenoids), or via devices driven by air (pneumatics) or liquids (hydraulics). This book has been written by a process control engineer as a guide to the operation of hydraulic and pneumatic systems for all engineers and technicians who wish to have an insight into the components and operation of such a system. This second edition has been fully updated…

Computer Aided Design and Design Automation The Circuits and Filters Handbook Third Edition By Wai Kai Chen

Introduction This volume of The Circuits and Filters Handbook, Third Edition focuses on computer-aided design and design automation.
