Phases Modeling Tools

Application to Gases

Michel Soustelle, École Nationale Supérieure des Mines, St Etienne, France

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...

Software Networks

Virtualization, SDN, 5G and security

Guy Pujolle, University Pierre and Marie Curie, France

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 ...

Sustainability Calling

Underpinning Technologies

Pierre Massotte, Consultant Patrick Corsi, Consultant

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

Jérôme Béranger, Senior Consultant

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

Pierre Devolder, University of West Brittany, Brest, France Jacques Janssen, Solvay Business School, Brussels, Belgium Raimondo Manca, University of Roma, Italy

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...

Embedded Mechatronic Systems 1

Analysis of Failures, Predictive Reliability

Abdelkhalak El Hami, INSA-Rouen, France Philippe Pougnet, Valeo, France

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...

Games with a Purpose (GWAPs)

FOCUS Series in Cognitive Science and Knowledge Management

Mathieu Lafourcade, University of Montpellier, France Nathalie Le Brun, Consultant Alain Joubert, IUT in Montpellier, France

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

Maryse Salles, University of Toulouse, France

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 ...
