Graph-related Optimization and Decision Support Systems

FOCUS Series in Computer Engineering

Saoussen Krichen, LARODEC Laboratory and Faculty of Law, Economics and Management, University of Jendouba Jouhaina Chaouachi, IHEC Carthage, Tunisia

Constrained optimization is a challenging branch of operations research that aims to create a model which has a wide range of applications in the supply chain, telecommunications and medical fields. As the problem structure is split into two main components, the objective is to accomplish the feasible set framed by the system constraints. The aim of this book is expose optimization problems that c...

Real-time Systems Scheduling 1

Fundamentals

Edited by Maryline Chetto, Institute of Technology of the University of Nantes, France

Real-time systems are used in a wide range of applications, including control, sensing, multimedia, etc. Scheduling is a central problem for these computing/communication systems since it is responsible for software execution in a timely manner. This book, the first of two volumes on the subject, is of interest as a general course on scheduling in real-time systems.
It addresses foundations as we...

Real-time Systems Scheduling 2

Focuses

Edited by Maryline Chetto, Institute of Technology of the University of Nantes, France

Real-time systems are used in a wide range of applications, including control, sensing, multimedia, etc. Scheduling is a central problem for these computing/communication systems since it is responsible for software execution in a timely manner. This book, the second of two volumes on the subject, brings together knowledge on specific topics and discusses the recent advances for some of them.

Model-Based Systems Engineering

Fundamentals and Methods

Patrice Micouin, Laboratoire des Sciences de l'Information et des Systèmes, Aix-en-Provence, France

This book is a contribution to the definition of a model-based system engineering (MBSE) approach that would meet the objectives laid out by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
After a reminder about complexity, which jeopardizes many system developments, and the MBSE objectives to face this complexity, the book addresses fundamental ontological and epistemological aspects...

Transport and Coherent Structures in Wall Turbulence

Sedat Tardu, Grenoble University, France

Wall bounded turbulent flows are of capital importance in industrial and environmental fluid mechanics. The structure of the wall turbulence is intimately related to the coherent structures that play a fundamental role in the transport process. The comprehension of their regeneration mechanism is indispensable for the development of efficient strategies in terms of drag control and near-wall turbu...

Formal Languages, Automata and Numeration Systems 1

Introduction to Combinatorics on Words

Michel Rigo, University of Liège, Belgium

The interplay between words, computability, algebra and arithmetic has now proved its relevance and fruitfulness. Indeed, the cross-fertilization between formal logic and finite automata (such as that initiated by J.R. Büchi) or between combinatorics on words and number theory has paved the way to recent dramatic developments, for example, the transcendence results for the real numbers having a ôs...

Bio-inspired Routing Protocols for Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Salim Bitam, University of Biskra, Algeria Abdelhamid Mellouk, University of Paris-Est (UPEC), France

Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) play a key role in developing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) aiming to achieve road safety and to guarantee the needs of drivers and passengers, in addition to improving transportation productivity.
One of the most important challenges of this kind of network is the data routing between VANET nodes which should be routed with a high level of Quality o...

Integral and Measure

From Rather Simple to Rather Complex

Vigirdas Mackevicius, Faculty of Mathematics of Vilnius University, Lithuania

This book is devoted to integration, one of the two main operations in calculus.
In Part 1, the definition of the integral of a one-variable function is different (not essentially, but rather methodically) from traditional definitions of Riemann or Lebesgue integrals. Such an approach allows us, on the one hand, to quickly develop the practical skills of integration as well as, on the other hand...

Musical Rhetoric

Foundations and Annotation Schemes

Patrick Saint-Dizier, ILPL research group (Computational Linguistics and Logic Programming), Toulouse, France

Rhetoric is the discipline that uses any type of discourse, e.g. spoken, written, gestural, with the aim of persuading an audience to approve a fact, a decision or an attitude.
This book explores the various roles played by music in a rhetoric discourse or in an argumentative construction. Music turns out to be a very strong, persuasive and expressive means of great interest for rhetoric. Its ass...
