Quantum Networking

Rodney Van Meter, Keio University, Fujisawa, Japan

Quantum repeater networks enable — and depend upon — quantum teleportation to create quantum states over long distances using entanglement (the ability of distant quantum particles to share a state in a way no classical particles can). These networks will enhance classical computer security, improve the sensitivity of telescopes and other scientific instruments, and ultimately connect quantum com...

Biomechanics of the Musculoskeletal System

Modeling of Data Uncertainty and Knowledge

Tien Tuan Dao and Marie-Christine Ho Ba Tho, University of Technology of Compiègne (UTC), France

This book is a forerunner regarding data uncertainty and knowledge modeling in the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system. It begins with the state of the art in related topics such as data uncertainty, knowledge modeling, and the biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.
This is followed by the presentation of fundamental and conceptual aspects of data uncertainty modeling in biomechanics....

Joint Optimization of Maintenance and Production Policies

FOCUS Series in Industrial Engineering

Nidhal Rezg, University of Lorraine, Metz, France Sofiene Dellagi, University of Lorraine, Metz, France Abdelhakim Khatab, Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Metz, France

This book presents a literature review of the recent works regarding the different approaches developed in the framework of the joint optimization of intelligent maintenance and production strategies. The originality of these strategies is that they take various constraints into account, including production management, subcontracting environmental degradation, inspection, and product quality. Opt...

Software Architecture 1

Edited by Mourad Chabane Oussalah, University of Nantes, France

Over the past 20 years, software architectures have significantly contributed to the development of complex and distributed systems. Nowadays, it is recognized that one of the critical problems in the design and development of any complex software system is its architecture, i.e. the organization of its architectural elements.
Software Architecture 1 presents the software architecture paradigms ...

UHF RFID Technologies for Identification and Traceability

FOCUS Series in Waves

Jean-Marc Laheurte, University of Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée, France Christian Ripoll, ESIEE Engineering School, France Dominique Paret, dp-Consulting Christophe Loussert, TAGSYS

UHF Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is an electronic tagging technology that allows an object, place or person to be automatically identified at a distance without a direct line-of-sight using a radio-wave exchange. A reference document on the tag antenna design and chip technologies in UHF RFID, this book also includes perspectives on end-users, market and production.
Chapter 1 provides a...

Strategic Decisions and Weak Signals

Anticipation for Decision-making

Humbert Lesca, Pierre Mendés-France University, Grenoble, France Nicolas Lesca, Claude Bernard University, Lyon, France

The study of the exploitation of weak signals in organizational strategy is a tricky business, and one which has only been practiced in organizations surprisingly recently. The concepts involved are relatively numerous, and the definitions given for such concepts may well vary from one author to the next. The real-world application of these concepts is rarely touched on in the existing body of lit...

Mechanics and Uncertainty

Maurice Lemaire, French Institute for Advanced Mechanics, Clermont-Ferrand, France

The relationship between mechanics and uncertainty is a complex one. Mechanics is used to denote a science, a set of technologies and an industry. Science tells us it is impossible to create an entirely deterministic model. Technologies are subject to limits of robustness and reliability, and in industry we must be aware of dangers generated by products and systems throughout their lifecycle. Unce...

Acoustic Particle Velocity Measurements using Lasers

Principles, Signal Processing And Applications

Jean-Christophe Valière, University of Poitiers, France

This book concerns the presentation of particle velocity measurement for acoustics using lasers, including Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV or Anemometry (LDA)) and Particle Imagery Velocimetry (PIV).
The author presents the importance of measuring acoustic velocity, particularly when acoustics is nonlinear, as well as characterizing the near fields. However, these applications need to use non-inva...

VBR Video Traffic Models

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Savera Tanwir and Harry Perros, North Carolina State University, USA

Phenomenal growth in video applications over the last few years, along with the growing number of multimedia users, has increased bandwidth requirements exponentially. Consumers are increasingly discerning about the quality and performance of video-based products and therefore there is a strong incentive for continuous improvement in multimedia technologies and communication infrastructure. Howeve...
