"All too often, Festschriften consist of contributions on all sorts of unrelated topics, and result in a charming mixture of extravagance and indulgence, which is supposed to be enjoyed first and foremost by the recipient. Sometimes such books serve as repositories for articles too eccentric in subject or in approach, or too sloppy in execution, to be published in scientific journals: what the journals cannot appreciate, the Festschrift editor often cannot refuse.
This is absolutely not the case with this volume, which is by any standard an outstanding one. Its excellent quality and timely publication owe much to the efforts of the editors...and of the publishing house Birkhauser. They have produced a Festschrift worthy of its ceremonial function in the career of an extremely influential scientist, educator, and engineer, and a book that also manages to give us a glimpse of the state-of-the-art in several important areas of signal processing and system and control theory.... A large number of readers will find in this volume a great deal to be learned and to be informed about, and the modest price of the book puts it within reach of the wide readership (graduate students, scientists, and engineers) it deserves."
A large number of readers will find in this volume a great deal to be learned and to be informed about, and the modest price of the book puts it within reach of the wide readership (graduate students, scientists, and engineers) it deserves. It has been a pleasure and an honour for the reviewer to be invited, albeit indirectly, to Kimura sensei's feast." - International Journal of Robust and Nonlinear Control
