Destitute and desperate, George Lassiter breaks into the kitchen of a stranger's house for food and shelter. There he witnesses the murder of a beautiful girl. But when the police search the house minutes later, they find nothing. The corpse has vanished, as if by magic. Even George's friend and rescuer Jack Haldean believes it was nothing more…
The first chapter gives a wide overview of the data assimilation steps starting from Gauss' first methods to the most recent as those developed under the Monte Carlo methods.The second chapter treats the representation of the physicalsystem as an ontological basis of the problem. The third chapter deals with the classical Kalman filter, while the fourth chapter deals with the advanced methods based onrecursive Bayesian Estimation. A special chapter, the fifth, deals with the possible applications, from the first Lorenz model, passing trough the biology and medicine up to planetary assimilation, mainly on Mars.
This book serves both teachers and college students, and other interested parties providing the algorithms and formulas to manage the data assimilation everywhere a dynamic system is present.
