Discrete Mechanics

Jean-Paul Caltagirone, University of Bordeaux, France

Discrete mechanics is a primitive vision of Newton’s 2nd Law, the fundamental principle of dynamics, as stated in his Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica in 1686. The original path chosen to derive the mechanical equations is based on basic concepts of differential geometry where the conservation of the flows is expressed on a segment of the discrete topology. It thus discards the concept ...

Bandwidth Allocation for Video under Quality of Service Constraints

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Bushra Anjum, Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA Harry Perros, NC State University, USA

The famous trichotomous Quality of Service (QoS) triangle consists of three main players: the sender, the receiver and the Internet Service Provider (ISP), also known as the carrier. The sender wants to send any type of traffic any time, whereas the receiver expects to receive all this sent traffic intact, with low delay. In addition, the third player, the carrier, wants to use the minimum possibl...

COBOL Software Modernization

From Principles to Implementation with the BLU AGE® Method

Franck Barbier, University of Pau, France Jean-Luc Recoussine, BLU AGE® Corporation, Dallas, Texas

The digital economy is expanding faster and faster due to the constant advances in IT. There is a virtuous circle such that, in turn, more and more (often unpredictable) innovative usages boost IT. These usages are social and, in a broad sense, economical, meaning that the impact of IT on business is nowadays immense.
This book presents a reflection on software modernization to align old informat...

Ad Hoc Networks Telecommunications and Game Theory

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Malek Benslama, University of Constantine 1, Algeria Hadj Batatia, IRIT–ENSEEIHT, Toulouse, France Mohamed Lamine Boucenna, University of Constantine 1, Algeria

Since its first application to wireless and ad hoc networks dates in 1995, game theory has proved its abilities to direct networks towards a better state of equilibrium. This has led the authors of this book to propose a model based on game theory to analyze both the SALOHA and CSMA protocols, involving the random use of the redundancy of an erasure coder to reduce collision and improve network pe...

Tracking with Particle Filter for High-dimensional observation and State Spaces

Séverine Dubuisson, Pierre and Marie Curie University, Paris, France

Whilst the domains of electronics and micro-electronics saw much progress in the last three decades, the acquisition of video sequences became a task of increasing triviality. However, these advancements, which have given rise to rapid improvements in sensor quality and therefore image resolution, as well as increases in computer processing power and memory, have made it possible, perhaps essenti...

Non-volatile Memories

Pierre Camille Lacaze, University of Denis Diderot, Paris, France Jean-Christophe Lacroix, University of Denis Diderot, Paris, France

The reflection in terms of the optimization of data storage and processing speeds has recently led to new criteria for the functioning of electronic memories of the future. These memories, while consuming a very small amount of energy, should be able to ensure both archiving functions (data conservation over periods longer than 10 years) and be able to carry out logic operations at very high speed...

The Rayleigh-Ritz Method for Structural Analysis

Sinniah Ilanko, University of Waikato, New Zealand Luis E. Monterrubio, Robert Morris University, PA, USA with assistance from Yusuke Mochida, University of Waikato, New Zealand

In many practical engineering problems, it is neither possible nor convenient to develop exact solutions. A convenient method for solving such problems originated from attempts to calculate natural frequencies and modes of structures. This method is known as the Rayleigh–Ritz Method or simply the Ritz Method.
This book is a presentation of the theory behind the Rayleigh–Ritz (R–R) method, as well...

Radio Frequency Identification and Sensors

From RFID to Chipless RFID

Etienne Perret, Grenoble Institute of Technology, France

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is based on the exchange of information carried by electromagnetic waves between a label, or tag, and a readerfor the purpose of automatically identifying and tracking tags attached to objects. This technology is currently in full economic expansion, manifested inits widely backed research activities, some of which are examined in this book. The rate at which ...

Aeronautical Air–Ground Data Link Communications

FOCUS Series in Networks and Telecommunications

Mohamed Slim Ben Mahmoud, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Christophe Guerber, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Nicolas Larrieu, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France Alain Pirovano, Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile, France José Radzik, Institut Supérieur de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace, France

Due to both the constant increase in air traffic and the migration of air–ground communications from analog voice to digital data, the current, emerging and future communication systems are facing a tremendous challenge: to provide efficient links with suitable capacity, availability and integrity.
The aviation industry and airlines are expecting researchers, engineers and technicians to define, ...

Recommender Systems

Edited by Gérald Kembellec, University of Lille 3, France Ghislaine Chartron, CNAM, France Imad Saleh, University of Paris 8, France

Elected by the different content platforms (books, music, films) and online sales sites, recommender systems are the key elements of digital strategies. If their development was originally aimed at the performance of information systems, the issues today have been moved to a great extent to optimization logic of the client relationship, with the main objective being to maximize potential sales.
