Phases Modeling Tools
Application to Gases
This book – one of a set of various volumes offering an in-depth examination of chemical thermodynamics – is dedicated to macroscopic and microscopic modeling tools and their application to gases.
The title is split into two parts. The first part introduces phase modeling tools and covers the fundamental steps in the modelling of a phase, constructing potential characteristic functions. The micro...
Virtualization, SDN, 5G and security
The goal of this book is to describe new concepts for the Internet’s next generation. This architecture is based on virtual networking using Cloud and datacenter facilities. The main problems to be dealt with are the placement of virtual resources for opening a new network on the fly, and the urbanization of virtual resources implemented on physical network equipment. This architecture deals with ...
This book discusses the key concepts that underpin the drive towards global sustainability in today’s complex world.
Based around the notion of transformative research, the authors propose novel social, economic and political concepts to favor new paradigms in the natural sciences, engineering and education. They argue for integrating interdisciplinarity, evolution and optimization principles, w...
Medical Information Systems Ethics
The exponential digitization of medical data has led to a transformation in the practice of medicine. This evolution gives rise to a new complexity of problems surrounding health NICT. Good usage of communication tools – telemedicine, e-health, m-health, medical big data – should enable us to improve the quality of care and responsibility of patients for an information system with a “human face”.
Basic Stochastic Processes
In this book, the authors focus on two big families of stochastic processes: stochastic calculus, including Lévy processes, and Markov and semi-Markov models. From a financial point of view, essential concepts such as the Black and Scholes model, VaR indicators, actuarial evaluation, market values and fair pricing play a central role and will be presented.
The first chapter presents the essentia...
From Creativity to Engineering
The world is changing; how enterprises carry out innovation needs to change with it. This book presents new methods and tools (from creativity to engineering), aimed at promoting and sustaining enterprise innovation and production improvement.
The primary (but not exclusive) focus is on the new approaches, methods, frameworks, and tools conceived for enterprise innovation and production improv...
Embedded Mechatronic Systems 1
Analysis of Failures, Predictive Reliability
Mechatronics brings together computer science, mechanics and electronics. It enables us to improve the performances of embedded electronic systems by reducing their weight, volume, energy consumption and cost. Mechatronic equipment must operate without failure throughout ever-increasing service lives.
The particularly severe conditions of use of embedded mechatronics cause failure mechanisms whic...
Embedded Mechatronic Systems 2
Analysis of Failures, Modeling, Simulation and Optimization
Mechatronics brings together computer science, mechanics and electronics. It enables us to improve the performances of embedded electronic systems by reducing their weight, volume, energy consumption and cost. These pieces of equipment must operate without failure throughout ever-increasing service lives.
Embedded Mechatronic Systems 2 presents advances in the research and applied industry withi...
Games with a Purpose (GWAPs)
FOCUS Series in Cognitive Science and Knowledge Management
Games with a Purpose (GWAPs) make it possible to collect data or solve problems that are too complex or too costly in terms of means to be solved by machines.These fun activities, which represent a type of serious gaming, are delicate to design since they must be both appealing and useful.
This book presents and analyzes GWAPs with specific themes (biology, medicine, automatic language process...
Decision-making and the Information System
Advances in Information Systems Set – Volume 3
The author of Decision-Making and the Information System analyzes the problems surrounding the engineering of decision support systems (DSS) by questioning the relationships these systems have with the decision-making process, the decision maker and the organization. While presenting the key elements of DSS (definitions, components, typologies, evolution, markets, tools, engineering methods), the ...
