Matthew Stein, PE
Disasters often strike without warning and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. Yet armed with the right tools and information, survivors can fend for themselves and get through even the toughest circumstances. This book provides a thorough, practical guide for how to prepare for and react in many of life's most unpredictable scenarios.
Matthew Stein, PE
This book, comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe.

    United States
    phone: 4088501242
    Ioannis-Kanellakopoulos-Telecommunications-Expert-Photo.jpg
    Dr. Kanellakopoulos is a technology leader with 25+ years of experience in R&D and engineering management in both academia and industry.

    He has designed and built telecom products such as DSL and Carrier Ethernet hardware and software, as well as a prototype fully automated electric vehicle. He has conducted applied research in adaptive control of nonlinear systems, with applications to automotive driver assistance systems (adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, vehicle collision avoidance) and active suspensions. He has significant experience with international telecommunication standards (ITU-T SG15/Q4), and has directed collaborative projects with several automotive/truck manufacturers and vendors (Ford, Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler, Freightliner, Gentex, Visteon).

    His deep technical expertise in the areas of telecommunications and automotive driver assistance systems has allowed him to analyze patents and products in detail, and explain clearly (in expert reports, depositions, and court testimony) the main issues that the judge and jury need to comprehend in order to understand the essence of the case. His extensive educational experience allows him to help judges and jurors understand the topic they are dealing with, instead of confusing them with unnecessary technical details.

    After all, it takes excellent teaching skills and a deep understanding of a complex technical concept to convey the essence of that concept to non-experts without talking down to them.
    Ioannis Kanellakopoulos, PhD, et al
    Using a pedagogical style along with detailed proofs and illustrative examples, this book opens a view to the largely unexplored area of nonlinear systems with uncertainties. The focus is on adaptive nonlinear control results introduced with the new recursive design methodology--adaptive backstepping. Describes basic tools for nonadaptive backstepping design with state and output feedbacks.
    Ioannis Kanellakopoulos, PhD
    Abstract: A systematic procedure for the design of adaptive regulation and tracking schemes for a class of feedback linearizable nonlinear systems is developed. The coordinate-free geometric conditions, which characterize this class of systems, do not constrain the growth of the nonlinearities. Instead, they require that the nonlinear system be transformable into the so-called parametric-pure feedback form...
