Comprehensive text and reference covers topics in probability, statistics, and random processes, plus methods for analyzing and controlling random vibrations. Suitable for graduate students and mechanical, structural, and aerospace engineers. 1995 edition.
A text for a graduate course in mechanical, structural, or aerospace engineering programs, containing enough material for a year but arranged so that much of it can be studied individually out of class for a one-semester course. Assumes undergraduate courses in probability and vibrations, but no knowledge of random processes or multiple-degrees-of-freedom dynamic systems. At the end of the course the students should be competent to begin masters-level research in random vibrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
