In this book invariant probabilities for a large class of discrete-time homogeneous Markov processes known as Feller processes are discussed. These Feller processes appear in the study of iterated function systems with probabilities, convolution operators, certain time series, etc. Rather than dealing with the processes, the transition probabilities and the operators associated with these processes are studied. Main features: - an ergodic decomposition which is a "reference system" for dealing with ergodic measures - "formulas" for the supports of invariant probability measures, some of which can be used to obtain algorithms for the graphical display of these supports - helps to gain a better understanding of the structure of Markov-Feller operators, and, implicitly, of the discrete-time homogeneous Feller processes - special efforts to attract newcomers to the theory of Markov processes in general, and to the topics covered in particular - most of the results are new and deal with topics of intense research interest.

Keep up-to-date in this fast moving field Dramatic changes in spinal stabilization have taken place in the last years and the pace of change continues to accelerate. This volume is an excellent mirror of the evolution of spinal stabilization. It brings together the latest and most comprehensive reviews in minimally-invasive and novel surgical approaches and spinal stabilization techniques. Highlights in new biomaterials including radiolucent, bioresorbable, and standard titanium are discussed by experts. Biological advances including the use of bone morphogenetic protein in anterior lumbar interbody fusion as well as computer-assisted image-guided surgical techniques are demonstrated. The section on instrumentation and technique represents the most up-to-date advances in surgical technique and management of spinal disorders. Illustrations included in each chapter document these excellent papers. Because it is a must for all surgeons performing spinal surgery to keep up-to-date in this fast moving field this book is indispensable reading for them. Neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons will find a wealth of information in this volume on the developments in surgical approaches, biomaterials and implants, and biological innovations.

The 33 papers from the December 1999 workshop report on current knowledge in the field of mechanics, physics and reliability of polymers, particularly those used in plastic packages of integrated circuit (IC) devices. Topics include fracture and damage investigations enhancing the thermo-mechanical reliability of plastic packages, the effect of polymer material properties on wire bonding to MCMs and advanced copper-low-K ICs, evaluation of the moisture sensitivity of molding compounds of IC packages, the influence of visco-elastic polymeric materials on flexural vibrations, application of the probabilistic approach in thermal stress modeling of packaging, and fiber optic sensor evaluation of epoxy-cured fiber optic connectors.
