Optical Networks: Architecture and Survivability by Hussein T. Mouftah

By Hussein T. Mouftah

Optical networks have moved from laboratory settings and theoretical learn to real-world deployment and service-oriented explorations. New applied sciences akin to Ethernet PON, site visitors grooming, neighborhood and metropolitan community architectures and optical packet switching are being explored, and the panorama is regularly and swiftly evolving. the various vital concerns concerning those new applied sciences contain the architectural, protocol, and function comparable matters. This ebook addresses lots of those concerns and offers a birds eye view of a few of the extra promising applied sciences. Researchers and people pursuing complex levels during this box may be in a position to see the place growth is being made and new applied sciences are rising.

    Introduction to Communication Science and Systems by John R. Pierce

    By John R. Pierce

    There are many beneficial and important books on electric communique (References 1-5 are a few examples), yet they've got definite risks for the newbie. The extra complex books current a few issues in a simple manner, yet they're very slim for an advent to communica­ tion. The introductory books are broader yet nonetheless slim by way of our stan­ dards. additional, they typically choose issues out of skinny air instead of derive them. This e-book is aimed toward giving the newbie a easy figuring out of a variety of themes that are crucial in communique platforms. those comprise antennas and transmission, thermal noise and its effects, Fourier transforms, modulation and noise, sampling and pulse code modulation, autocorrelation and gear spectrum, optimal filtering, gauss­ ian noise and blunders in electronic transmission, information transmission, limits on facts price together with info idea and quantum limits, and resource encoding. we've not incorporated communications site visitors, switching, and multiplexing, nor protocols for electronic and laptop communications. For those, Reference 6 is great. regularly, our e-book doesn't talk about the circuits used for verbal exchange or the physics of radio propagation. We imagine that those might be taught in really expert classes, yet such classes aren't must haves for this one. bankruptcy 1 introduces the transmission formulation or antenna equation and antenna directivity. just a very uncomplicated sophomore physics wisdom of electromagnetic concept is thought. The radar equation is additionally treated.

    Decentralized Systems with Design Constraints by Magdi S. Mahmoud

    By Magdi S. Mahmoud

    Decentralized platforms with layout Constraints offers a rigorous framework for reading the research, balance and keep an eye on of large-scale platforms, and addressing the problems that come up as a result of dimensionality, details constitution constraints, parametric uncertainty and time-delays.

    The achievements of this monograph are three-fold. It:

    · reports prior tools and effects from a modern perspective;

    · examines current developments and techniques to supply destiny probabilities; and

    · investigates powerful, trustworthy and/or resilient decentralized layout tools in accordance with a linear matrix inequalities framework.

    As good as delivering an total evaluate of large-scale platforms theories during the last a number of many years, the writer offers key similar options and effective computational equipment. consultant numerical examples, end-of-chapter difficulties, and standard procedure functions are incorporated, and theoretical advancements and useful functions of large-scale (interconnected) dynamical structures are mentioned extensive.

    5G Mobile Communications by Wei Xiang, Kan Zheng, Xuemin (Sherman) Shen

    By Wei Xiang, Kan Zheng, Xuemin (Sherman) Shen

    This publication offers a complete evaluate of the rising applied sciences for next-generation 5G cellular communications, with insights into the long term way forward for 5G. Written via overseas major specialists at the topic, this contributed quantity covers a variety of applied sciences, study effects, and networking equipment. Key permitting applied sciences for 5G platforms contain, yet usually are not restricted to, millimeter-wave communications, enormous MIMO know-how and non-orthogonal a number of access.
    5G will bring in a fair larger upward push within the prominence of cellular entry established upon either human-centric and machine-centric networks. in comparison with present 4G communications structures, unheard of numbers of shrewdpermanent and heterogeneous instant units can be gaining access to destiny 5G cellular structures. hence, a brand new paradigm shift is needed to accommodate demanding situations on explosively transforming into requisites in cellular information site visitors quantity (1000x), variety of attached units (10–100x), usual end-user information cost (10–100x), and device/network lifetime (10x). reaching those bold targets demands innovative candidate applied sciences in destiny 5G cellular systems. 
    Designed for researchers and execs concerned with networks and verbal exchange structures, 5G cellular Communications is an easy, easy-to-read research of the probabilities of 5G systems.

    The Wiki Way: Quick Collaboration on the Web by Bo Leuf

    By Bo Leuf

    Wiki dialogue servers provide a very versatile, open resource answer for a variety of collaborative functions. Wiki deals simplicity, vast compatibility with present applied sciences and criteria, and remarkably reasonable. Now, there is a whole consultant to deploying and coping with Wiki servers, co-authored by way of Wiki's author Ward Cunningham. The Wiki method starts with an summary of dialogue servers and their functions, and an advent to Wiki's services and elements. The authors stroll via fitting Wiki, protecting key Apache configuration and protection concerns; then introduce easy methods for looking, enhancing, content material improvement, markup, and structuring Wiki content material for various purposes. The booklet additionally offers various case reviews showcasing Wiki know-how in motion. An accompanying CD-ROM and better half website at http://wiki.org/ give you the most up-to-date Wiki resource code for a number of systems.

    Ontology Learning and Population from Text: Algorithms, by Philipp Cimiano

    By Philipp Cimiano

    Standard formalisms for wisdom illustration resembling RDFS or OWL were lately constructed by way of the semantic internet group and are actually in position. although, the the most important query nonetheless is still: how can we gather the entire wisdom to be had in people's heads to feed our machines?

    Natural language is THE technique of conversation for people, and accordingly texts are hugely on hand on the net. Terabytes and terabytes of texts containing reviews, principles, evidence and knowledge of all kinds are ready to be mined for attention-grabbing styles and relationships, or used to annotate files to facilitate their retrieval. A semantic net which ignores the big volume of data encoded in textual content, may possibly really be a semantic, yet no longer a truly helpful, net. wisdom acquisition, and particularly ontology studying from textual content, truly needs to be considered as a very important step in the imaginative and prescient of a semantic web.

    Ontology studying and inhabitants from textual content: Algorithms, assessment and Applications offers methods for ontology studying from textual content and may be suitable for researchers engaged on textual content mining, ordinary language processing, details retrieval, semantic internet and ontologies. Containing introductory fabric and a volume of similar paintings at the one hand, but in addition special descriptions of algorithms, overview techniques and so on. at the different, this booklet is appropriate for newcomers, and specialists within the box, in addition to lecturers.

    Datasets, algorithms and path fabric may be downloaded at http://www.cimiano.de/olp. Ontology studying and inhabitants from textual content: Algorithms, overview and Applications is designed for practitioners in undefined, in addition researchers and graduate-level scholars in desktop science.
