This book, which has been prepared by an international group of experts, provides comprehensive guidance for the design, planning and implementation of assessments and monitoring programmes for water bodies used for recreation. It addresses the wide range of hazards which may be encountered and emphasizes the importance of linking monitoring programmes to effective and feasible management actions to protect human health. It also provides details of sampling and analytical methods.
<b>Online learning from a signal processing perspective</b> <p> There is increased interest in kernel learning algorithms in neural networks and a growing need for nonlinear adaptive algorithms in advanced signal processing, communications, and controls. <i>Kernel Adaptive Filtering</i> is the first book to present a comprehensive, unifying introduction to online learning algorithms in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces. Based on research being conducted in the Computational Neuro-Engineering Laboratory at the University of Florida and in the Cognitive Systems Laboratory at McMaster University, Ontario, Canada, this unique resource elevates the adaptive filtering theory to a new level, presenting a new design methodology of nonlinear adaptive filters. <ul> <li> <p> Covers the kernel least mean squares algorithm, kernel affine projection algorithms, the kernel recursive least squares algorithm, the theory of Gaussian process regression, and the extended kernel recursive least squares algorithm <li> <p> Presents a powerful model-selection method called maximum marginal likelihood <li> <p> Addresses the principal bottleneck of kernel adaptive filters—their growing structure <li> <p> Features twelve computer-oriented experiments to reinforce the concepts, with MATLAB codes downloadable from the authors' Web site <li> <p> Concludes each chapter with a summary of the state of the art and potential future directions for original research </ul> <p> <i>Kernel Adaptive Filtering</i> is ideal for engineers, computer scientists, and graduate students interested in nonlinear adaptive systems for online applications (applications where the data stream arrives one sample at a time and incremental optimal solutions are desirable). It is also a useful guide for those who look for nonlinear adaptive filtering methodologies to solve practical problems.
