This unique book commemorates the 65th birthday of Stephen H. Crandall - one of the founding fathers and most active developers and elucidators of the science of random vibrations. Leading scientists from all over the world have contributed 33 papers addressing almost every important problem of random vibrations. The book thus represents both the state-of-the-art as well as the most recent developments, and will appeal to those in industry and academia who want to achieve a rigorous understanding of the many facets of the subject. A thorough study of the book will also help lay the foundations for future directions in research.
