By E. B. Dynkin

Eugene Dynkin is an extraordinary instance of a modern mathematician who has accomplished extraordinary ends up in particularly diverse parts of study: algebra and chance. In either components, his principles represent a necessary a part of smooth mathematical wisdom and shape a foundation for extra improvement. even supposing his final paintings in algebra was once released in 1955, his contributions proceed to persuade present learn in algebra and within the physics of simple debris. His paintings in chance is a part of either the historic and the fashionable improvement of the subject. This quantity offers Dynkin's medical contributions in either parts. integrated are remark by way of famous specialists within the corresponding fields who describe the time, position, position, and influence of Dynkin's study and achievements. Biographical notes and the memories of his scholars also are featured.

**Max-linear Systems: Theory and Algorithms**

Contemporary years have visible an important upward push of curiosity in max-linear idea and methods. as well as delivering the linear-algebraic history within the box of tropical arithmetic, max-algebra presents mathematical conception and methods for fixing a variety of nonlinear difficulties coming up in parts comparable to production, transportation, allocation of assets and data processing know-how.

Then for h > fh,, px-'(A) 5 2p(x)/A0 for x E X . 1 of Appendix A) and the continuity of p X - l lim U(A) = lim A-Ao A-ho n = = J x px-'(A)dx [ lim p X - l ( A ) ] dx IX x s A-tAo p x - l ( A 0 ) dx = U(h,). The fact that p X - l is strictly decreasing in (0, p(x, 0)) may be used to show that U is strictly decreasing on (0,A,,), which proves (i). 14). Thus (ii) follows from the continuity of U and the definition of A,. 2). This proves the existence of U - l and the theorem. 2 Regular Detection Functions 49 For the case of a discrete target distribution, define for z 2 0, j p,(z) = p ( j , z) = p(j)b'(j, z ) inverse of p, evaluated at h E J, for 0 < A I p,(O), for > Pj(O), As above, U - l denotes the inverse function for U.

I1 Uniformly Optimal Search Plans 42 For this example, effort is measured in swept area so that the effort density z is dimensionless. Suppose the amount of effort K is fixed, and one wishes to maximize the probability of detecting the target within effort K. 3, let 3 = F and for c(x,z) = z Then CLfl =I f(x)dx X XE X, z 2 0. for f E F ( X ) , and we seek an f* that is optimal for cost K. 9) where Z ( x ) = [0, co)for x E X. The pointwise Lagrangian is /(x, A, z) = p(x)(l - e - 3 - For the moment fix A for x E X.

1. , when the dimensions of the search region are large compared to Wand u), then the probability of detecting the target depends only on the ratio u/W. This probability is shown in Fig. 5. Observe that as the ratio u/ W approaches CL), the probability of detection approaches 1 - e-l. The track length required to complete this parallel-path search plan is A/W. 2) that the probability of detection resulting from a random search of track length A/W is 1 - e-l. 0 o/w Fig. 5. 0 Probability of detection for parallel-path search.
