Fundamentals of Advanced Mathematics 1

Categories, Algebraic Structures, Linear and Homological Algebra

Henri Bourlès, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, France

The three volumes of this series of books, of which this is the first, put forward the mathematical elements that make up the foundations of a number of contemporary scientific methods: modern theory on systems, physics and engineering.
This first volume focuses primarily on algebraic questions: categories and functors, groups, rings, modules and algebra. Notions are introduced in a general frame...

An Introduction to Organic Lasers

Advanced Lasers Set

Azzedine Boudrioua, University of Paris 13, France Mahmoud Chakaroun, University of Paris 13, France Alexis Fischer, University Paris 13, France

One of the biggest challenges of organic optoelectronics is the realization of the first organic laser diode (electrically pumped) which has a very strong potential for many applications.
Similar to what happened in the field of inorganic optoelectronics when transforming LEDs into LDs, the race is on to transform an OLED into an OLD. This involves the development of innovative solutions to ov...

Predictive Control

Daniel Lequesne, Consultant

This work proposes a simple predictive controller where the control laws are given in clear text and require no calculations. Adjustment, reduced to one or two parameters, is particularly easy, by means of charts allowing the operator to choose the horizon according to the desired performances. Implementation is discussed in detail in two forms: RS or RST controller in z-1, and pseudo-code realiza...

Gas Hydrates 1

Fundamentals, Characterization and Modeling

Edited by Daniel Broseta, University of Pau and Pays de l’Adour, France Livio Ruffine, French Research Institute for the Exploitation of the Sea (Ifremer), France Arnaud Desmedt, University of Bordeaux, France

Gas hydrates, or clathrate hydrates, are crystalline solids resembling ice, in which small (guest) molecules, typically gases, are trapped inside cavities formed by hydrogen-bonded water (host) molecules. They form and remain stable under low temperatures – often well below ambient conditions – and high pressures ranging from a few bar to hundreds of bar, depending on the guest molecule. Their pre...

Supply Chain Management and Business Performance

The VASC Model

Christelle Camman, Aix-Marseille University, France Claude Fiore, Aix-Marseille University, France Laurent Livolsi, Aix-Marseille University, France Pascal Querro, Aix-Marseille University, France

Against this current trend of low growth and high uncertainty, business directors must work with their shareholders to set strategic objectives and define business models.
The great number of possible strategies makes this type of management very complex, and the actual deployment of strategic choices is often limited by a lack of overall coherence within the organization.
This problem calls fo...

Chi-squared Goodness-of-fit Tests for Censored Data

Stochastic Models in Survival Analysis and Reliability Set – Volume 3

Mikhail S. Nikulin, University Victor Segalen, France Ekaterina V. Chimitova, Novosibirsk State Technical University, Russia

This book is devoted to the problems of construction and application of chi-squared goodness-of-fit tests for complete and censored data. Classical chi-squared tests assume that unknown distribution parameters are estimated using grouped data, but in practice this assumption is often forgotten. In this book, we consider modified chi-squared tests, which do not suffer from such a drawback. The auth...

Baidu SEO

Challenges and Intricacies of Marketing in China

Véronique Duong, Consultant

SEO practices for Baidu and other Chinese search engines are little known in the Western world. However, in order for a company to promote itself successfully in the Middle Kingdom, it is absolutely necessary to go online in China. Chinese SEO is not only about working on the on-site and off-site aspects of a site, there are also many administrative tasks to take into account: the creation of a si...

Innovation, Between Science and Science Fiction

Smart Innovation Set - Volume 10

Thomas Michaud, Consultant

Fantasy and science fiction are both involved in the process of innovation in techno-scientific societies. Long regarded as a hindrance to rationality, and to science, science fiction has become the object of praise in recent decades.
Innovative organizations use science fiction to stimulate the creativity of their teams, and more and more entrepreneurs are using its influence to develop innov...

Smart Decisions in Complex Systems

Pierre Massotte, Consultant Patrick Corsi, Consultant

Faced with ever-increasing complexity on a daily basis, the decision-makers of today are struggling to find the appropriate models, methods and tools to face the issues arising in complex systems across all levels of global operations.
Having, in the past, resorted to outdated approaches which limit problem-solving to linear world views, we must now capitalize on complexities in order to succeed ...

Asymmetric Alliances and Information Systems

Issues and Prospects

Karim Saïd, ISM Graduate School of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines University (UVSQ)/Paris-Saclay University, France Fadia Bahri Korbi, Consultant

This book explores the impact of information systems on the management of North–South asymmetric strategic alliances through a series of in-depth case studies which analyze different types of partnerships.
Positioned at the heart of the value creation process, the choice of information system seems to be becoming a strategic issue which should be centered not only on the organizational decisio...
