#### Debnath Pradip On Lacunary Ideal Convergence in Intuitionistic Fuzzy N-Normed Spaces This book deals with a concise study of convergence in intuitionistic fuzzy n-normed linear spaces. This book mainly contains the author's own research work in the area of lacunary ideal convergence. Fuzzy normed spaces have been an increasingly popular area of mathematical research in recent times, both in terms of theory and applications. But the availability of books in the area of fuzzy normed spaces is very rare. This book provides a good discussion on the development of both fuzzy and intuitionistic fuzzy set theory. The transition from fuzzy normed linear spaces to intuitionistic fuzzy n-normed linear spaces has been presented systematically. Anybody interested in the theory or application of fuzzy or intuitionistic fuzzy normed spaces will find this book more than useful. The book is written in such a way that mathematical prerequisites are minimum. Since the main subject of study in this book is a generalisaton of the concept of usual convergence, so all the related results in convergence have been incorporated in the book. This book may be used as a ready reference for an up to date account of results in the theory of fuzzy/intuitionistic fuzzy normed linear spaces.

#### Singh Pushpinder Ranking Approach to Solve Linear Programming Problems with Fuzzy Sets Linear programming is one of the most frequently applied operations research techniques. The classical tool for solving the linear programming problem in practice is the class of simplex algorithm which was proposed and developed by Dantzig. A lot of real world decision problems are described by linear programming models and sometimes it is necessary to formulate them with elements of imprecision or uncertainty. This imprecise nature has long been studied with the help of the probability theory. However, the probability theory might not provide the correct interpretation to solve some practical decision making problems. In these cases, the fuzzy set theory might be more helpful. In this book, the limitations and shortcomings of existing methods for solving linear programming problems with fuzzy sets are pointed out. Some new ranking approaches for the ordering of fuzzy sets and vague sets are developed and also new methods to find the unique optimal solutions of linear programming problems under fuzzy environment and vague environment are presented.

#### J. Prabhakara Naik,Balasiddamuni Pagadala and Ramesh Mummineni Statistical Modeling And Diagnostic Tests In the book an attempt has been made to develop some new diagnostic tests for statistical model building in the context of linear regression models. Diagnostics of outliers has been described and a test for identifying outliers by using predicted residuals has been proposed in the present study. Besides outliers, a measure of influence for diagnostics has been developed in the study. Some new modified R2 and criteria for model selection have been developed along with modified mean square prediction error criteria; and modified information criteria for model selection. A test for exogeneity in model specification by using augmented regression model; and a test for stability of regression parameters in model specification have been proposed under diagnostic tests. A new test for misspecification of the linear regression model has been derived along with a modified Rainbow Test by using Internally studentized residuals. The problem of misspecification of non-nested linear regression models, has been discussed together with a diagnostic test for functional form between loglinear and linear regression models.

#### Ammar Muslim Abdulhussein and Ameera Jaber Mohaisen Fuzzy sets penalized spline in Bayesian semiparametric regression We consider semiparametric regression model where the mean function of this model has two parts, the parametric is assumed to be linear function of p-dimensional covariates and nonparametric is assumed to be a smooth penalized spline. By using a convenient connection between penalized splines and mixed models, we can represent semiparametric regression model as a mixed model. Bayesian approach is employed to make inferences on the resulting mixed model coefficients, and we prove some theorems about posterior. We also investigate the large sample property of the Bayes factor for testing the polynomial component of spline model against the fully spline semiparametric alternative model, as well as Bayesian approach to semiparametric regression model which is described by using fuzzy sets and membership functions. The membership functions are interpreted as likelihood functions for the model, furthermore, we prove some theorems about posterior and Bayes factor in this case.

#### Bruce Bowerman, Emily Murphree Regression Analysis. Unified Concepts, Practical Applications, Computer Implementation Regression Analysis: Unified Concepts, Practical Applications, Computer Implementation is a concise and innovative book that gives a complete presentation of applied regression analysis in approximately one-half the space of competing books. With only the modest prerequisite of a basic (non-calculus) statistics course this text is appropriate for the widest possible audience including college juniors, seniors and first-year graduate students in business and statistics, as well as professionals in business and industry. The book is able to accommodate this wide audience because of the unique, integrative approach that is taken to the teaching of regression analysis. Whereas other regression books cover regression in four chapters, beginning with a statistical review, followed by chapters on simple linear regression, matrix algebra and multiple regression, this book introduces regression and covers both simple linear regression and multiple regression in single cohesive chapter. This is made possible through an efficient, integrative discussion of the two techniques. Additionally, in the same chapter (Chapter Two) basic statistical and matrix algebra concepts are introduced as needed In order to facilitate instruction. This approach avoids the needless repetition that is often found in longer treatments of the subject, while serving to bring a collective focus to students of widely varying mathematical backgrounds.

9989 RUR The control of uncertain non-linear plants is a challenging task. Adaptive Fuzzy Controllers have been applied widely for the control of such processes. The book discusses one particular approach to the fuzzy controllers. Adaptive Model Free Fuzzy Control is a goal oriented approach which tries to control the plant based on the information available without specifically modeling the plant. The prime objective of the controller is to reduce the control error. The book discusses two different model free control structures and their relative merits and de-merits. Four different fuzzy identification schemes have been discussed which can be used to train the controller parameters. The simulation results from both the controllers have been included to get a better understanding of the control performance. The cooling coil of an air handling unit is used for the realistic testing of the controllers.
