Part of the SpringerBriefs in Mathematics book series (BRIEFSMATH)


This book collects available results on PHDs and MAPs and, in particular, it presents several of the available methods to determine the parameters of a PHD or MAP in order to capture the behavior of a real system described in form of some measurements. Our goal was to provide an application oriented presentation that helps to apply available techniques in practical modeling. We hope that the book helps a reader to solve her or his modeling problems when complex processes, which are common in many systems, have to be modeled and analyzed.
