Version 5.3 of emgr - EMpirical GRamian framework - has been released.

In system theory and control engineering the system Gramian matrices

of linear input-output systems have wide-spread use, for example:

model reduction, decentralized control, optimal placement or

sensitivity analysis. Empirical Gramian matrices correspond to the

linear system Gramians, but extend to parametric and nonlinear systems

due to their data-driven computation. The empirical Gramian framework

is an open-source Matlab toolbox, compatible with Octave and MATLAB,

which enables the computation of the following empirical system

Gramians:

- Empirical controllability Gramian

- Empirical observability Gramian

- Empirical cross Gramian

- Empirical linear cross Gramian (fast variant for linear systems)

- Empirical sensitivity Gramian (controllability of state and

parameters)

- Empirical identifiability Gramian (observability of state and

parameters)

- Empirical joint Gramian (observability of parameters and minimality

of state)

Computing Highly Oscillatory Integrals

Alfredo Deano, Daan Huybrechs, and Arieh Iserles

x + 180 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611975-11-6 / List Price $79.00

/ SIAM Member Price $55.30 / Order Code OT155

Highly oscillatory phenomena range across numerous areas in science

and engineering and their computation represents a difficult

challenge. A case in point is integrals of rapidly oscillating

functions in one or more variables. The quadrature of such integrals

has been historically considered very demanding. Research in the past

15 years (in which the authors played a major role) resulted in a

range of very effective and affordable algorithms for highly

oscillatory quadrature. This is the only monograph bringing together

the new body of ideas in this area in its entirety.

The text is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students,

as well as applied mathematicians, scientists, and engineers who

encounter highly oscillatory integrals as a critical difficulty in

their computations.

MATLAB), S. D. Conte and Carl de Boor

xxiv + 456 pages / Softcover / ISBN 978-1-611975-19-2 / List Price

$76.00 / SIAM Member Price $53.20 / Order Code CL78

This book provides a thorough and careful introduction to the theory

and practice of scientific computing at an elementary, yet rigorous,

level, from theory via examples and algorithms to computer

programs. The original FORTRAN programs have been rewritten in MATLAB

and now appear in a new appendix and online, offering a modernized

version of this classic reference for basic numerical algorithms.

The intended audience is upper-division undergraduates in engineering,

mathematics, and the sciences, including computer science. The book

has served well as a text book.

damped oscillations; 5. Boundary-value problems; 6. Eigenvalues of

Fundamentals of Numerical Computation

Tobin A. Driscoll and Richard J. Braun

xxx + 553 pages / Hardcover / ISBN 978-1-611975-07-9 / List Price

$104.00 / SIAM Member Price $72.80 / OT154

This is an advanced undergraduate-level introduction to the

mathematics and use of algorithms for the fundamental problems of

numerical computation: linear algebra, finding roots, approximating

data and functions, and solving differential equations. The book is

organized with simpler methods in the first half and more advanced

methods in the second half, allowing use for either a single course or

a sequence of two courses. The authors take readers from basic to

advanced methods, illustrating them with over 200 self-contained

MATLAB functions and examples designed for those with no prior MATLAB

experience. Although the text provides many examples, exercises, and

illustrations, the aim of the authors is not to provide a cookbook per

se, but rather an exploration of the principles of cooking.

Professors Driscoll and Braun have developed an online resource that

includes well-tested materials related to every chapter. Among these

materials are lecture-related slides and videos, ideas for student

projects, laboratory exercises, computational examples and scripts,

and all the functions presented in the book.
