Mobile and Wireless Networks
Advanced Network Set – Volume 2
This book presents the state of the art in the field of mobile and wireless networks, and anticipates the arrival of new standards and architectures. It focuses on wireless networks, starting with small personal area networks and progressing onto the very large cells of wireless regional area networks, via local area networks dominated by WiFi technology, and finally metropolitan networks.
Metaheuristics for String Problems in Bio-informatics
Metaheuristics Set – Volume 6
So-called string problems are abundant in bioinformatics and computational biology. New optimization problems dealing with DNA or protein sequences are constantly arising and researchers are highly in need of efficient optimization techniques for solving them.
One obstacle for optimization practitioners is the atypical nature of these problems which require an interdisciplinary approach in order ...
Metaheuristics for Big Data
Metaheuristics set – Volume 5
Big Data is a new field, with many technological challenges to be understood in order to use it to its full potential. These challenges arise at all stages of working with Big Data, beginning with data generation and acquisition. The storage and management phase presents two critical challenges: infrastructure, for storage and transportation, and conceptual models. Finally, to extract meaning fr...
The book features comparative perspectives on the field of chemical ecology, present and future, offered by scientists from a wide variety of disciplines. The scientists contributing to this book –biologists, ecologists, biochemists, chemists, biostatisticians – are interested in marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems and work on life forms ranging from micro-organisms to mammals, including...
The Wave Concept in Electromagnetism and Circuits
Theory and Applications
The Wave Concept Iterative Procedure (WCIP) method has found an increasing number of users within electromagnetic theory and applications to planar circuits, antennas and diffraction problems. This book introduces in detail this new formulation of integral methods, based on the use of a wave concept with two bounded operators, and applications in a variety of domains in electromagnetics. This ap...
Electrical Energy Storage in Transportation Systems
To enable the sustainable development of complex modern transportation systems, the storage of electrical energy is crucial. This is particularly true given the rapid developments made for electric transportation services in smart cities, and the demand for interaction between different transport systems. This book presents tools to design such an energy management system, following a generic ap...
Reliability of Engineering Systems and Technological Risks
Stochastic Models in Survival Analysis and Reliability Set – Volume 1
This book is based on a lecture course to students specializing in the safety of technological processes and production.
The author focuses on three main problems in technological risks and safety: elements of reliability theory, the basic notions, models and methods of general risk theory and some aspects of insurance in the context of risk management.
Although the material in this book is aime...
Control of Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures
Research Project CEOS.fr
This book presents new guidelines for the control of cracking in massive reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Understanding this behavior during construction allows engineers to ensure properties such as durability, reliability, and water- and air-tightness throughout a structure’s lifetime. Based on the findings of the French national CEOS.fr project, the authors extend existing engine...
Ultra Low Power Electronics and Adiabatic Solutions
The improvement of energy efficiency in electronics and computing systems is currently central to information and communication technology design; low-cost cooling, autonomous portable systems and functioning on recovered energy all need to be continuously improved to allow modern technology to compute more while consuming less. This book presents the basic principles of the origins and limits of ...
Nanometer-scale Defect Detection Using Polarized Light
Reliability of Multiphysical Systems Set – Volume 2
This book describes the methods used to detect material defects at the nanoscale. The authors present different theories, polarization states and interactions of light with matter, in particular optical techniques using polarized light.
Combining experimental techniques of polarized light analysis with techniques based on theoretical or statistical models to study faults or buried interfaces of ...
