Recently, criterion functions based on information theoretic measures (entropy, mutual information, information divergence) have attracted attention and become an emerging area of study in signal processing and system identification domain. This book presents a systematic framework for system identification and information processing, investigating system identification from an information theory point of view. The book is divided into six chapters, which cover the information needed to understand the theory and application of system parameter identification. The authors’ research provides a base for the book, but it incorporates the results from the latest international research publications.
Named a 2013 Notable Computer Book for Information Systems by Computing Reviews
One of the first books to present system parameter identification with information theoretic criteria so readers can track the latest developments
Contains numerous illustrative examples to help the reader grasp basic methods
Managed DirectX 9 Kick Start : Graphics and Game Programming Managed DirectX was released with the latest version of the core DirectX libraries in DirectX9. It enables developers using the new .NET languages (i.e. C#, VB.NET, etc.) to develop rich multimedia applications with DirectX. Unfortunately the Managed DirectX runtime was released without adequate documentation, and developers are having a hard time... AVIEN Malware Defense Guide for the Enterprise Members of AVIEN (the Anti-Virus Information Exchange Network) have been setting agendas in malware management for several years: they led the way on generic filtering at the gateway, and in the sharing of information about new threats at a speed that even anti-virus companies were hard-pressed to match. AVIEN members represent the best-protected... Physics of Organic Semiconductors "... is a useful contribution to the field and well worth buying." ChemPhysChem

Cabling: The Complete Guide to Network Wiring, 3rd Edition
The physical linkages responsible for carrying a company's data continue to be the most neglected components of the typical network—to the extent that nearly 700f all network-related problems result from poor cabling.
In this third edition of a widely acclaimed resource, three networking experts...
macromedia® COLDFUSION® MX 7 Web Application Construction Kit With more than 75 of the Fortune 100 companies using it (and more than 10,000 organizations employing it worldwide), it's pretty much a given that if you're developing applications for the Web, you're going to need to know ColdFusion at some point! Not to worry: Macromedia ColdFusion MX 7 Web Application Construction... XML Programming (Core Reference)
When first exposed to the Extensible Markup Language (XML), you might ask yourself how it fits in the overall picture of Web-related items. This is the same question developers, managers, and presidents ask, not only of their peers, but of themselves as well. Ironically, this is the same question people in those roles asked themselves years ago...
