VoLTE and ViLTE
Voice and Conversational Video Services over the 4G Mobile Network
This book presents the architecture of two networks that make up the backbone of the telephone service VoLTE and video service ViLTE.
The 4G mobile network makes it possible to construct bearers through which IP packets, containing either telephone signals (SIP, SDP) or voice or video media (RTP stream), are transported.
The IMS network performs the processing of the telephone signal to provid...
Digital Electronics 1
Combinational Logic Circuits
The omnipresence of electronic devices in our everyday lives has been accompanied by the downscaling of chip feature sizes and the ever increasing complexity of digital circuits.
This book is devoted to the analysis and design of digital circuits, where the signal can assume only two possible logic levels. It deals with the basic principles and concepts of digital electronics. It addresses all as...
Eyestrain Reduction in Stereoscopy
FOCUS Series in Computer Engineering
Stereoscopic processes are increasingly used in virtual reality and entertainment. This technology is interesting because it allows for a quick immersion of the user, especially in terms of depth perception and relief clues. However, these processes tend to cause stress on the visual system if used over a prolonged period of time, leading some to question the cause of side effects that these syste...
Thermodynamics of Surfaces and Capillary Systems
Chemical Thermodynamics Set – Volume 7
This book is part of a set of books which offers advanced students successive characterization tool phases, the study of all types of phase (liquid, gas and solid, pure or multi-component), process engineering, chemical and electrochemical equilibria, and the properties of surfaces and phases of small sizes. Macroscopic and microscopic models are in turn covered with a constant correlation between...
The Biogeochemical Cycle of Silicon in the Ocean
FOCUS Series in Earth System – Environmental Sciences
In the biogeochemical dynamics of marine ecosystems, silicon is a major element whose role has, for a long time, been underestimated. It is however indispensable to the activity of several biomineralizing marine organisms, some of which play an essential role in the biological pump of oceanic carbon.
This book presents notions indispensable to the knowledge on the silicon biogeochemical cycle in...
Materials and Infrastructures 2
Research for Innovative Transports Set - Volume 5B
This volume presents the second half of a diverse collection of chapters in the field of materials and infrastructures in transport systems, which illustrate the technological and methodological innovations required to rise to the challenge of building more sustainable transport infrastructures for the future. The authors explore the potential of these sustainable solutions to improve the perform...

Research for Innovative Transports Set - Volume 5A
This volume presents the first half of a diverse collection of chapters in the field of materials and infrastructures in transport systems, which illustrate the technological and methodological innovations required to rise to the challenge of building more sustainable transport infrastructures for the future. The authors explore the potential of these sustainable solutions to improve the performan...
The digital economy is now expanding rapidly, and is starting to overturn the past achievements of the Industrial Revolution. Initially engaging in the world of services, it is now turning to the manufacture of objects. Just as microcomputing evolved from large scale computing to more personal use, and as the Internet left behind the world of armies and universities to become universal, industrial...
From Ethical Review to Responsible Research and Innovation
Responsible Research and Innovation Set - Volume 3
The scientific and technological upheavals of the 20th Century and the questions and difficulties that went along with them (climate change, nuclear energy, GMO, etc.) have increased the necessity of thinking about and formalizing technoscientific progress and its consequences. Expert evaluations and ethics committees today cannot be the only legitimate sources for understanding the social accepta...
FOCUS Series in Earth System – Environmental Sciences
This book presents an in-depth guide to the subject matter and main points of hydrostructural pedology, as theorized for the first time. The authors focus on the underlying concepts, the purpose and role this field plays within agroenvironmental sciences. It is divided into two parts.
Part 1 presents the theory behind hydrostructural pedology. The systemic approach applied to the soil is presen...
