Secure Connected Objects

Dominique Paret, Consultant Jean-Paul Huon, Consultant

Although the Internet of Things (IoT) is still a relatively new topic, there is already a wealth of literature on the topic.
In this book, the authors focus on the concrete aspects of IoT: the daily operation, on the ground, of this domain, including concrete and detailed discussion of the designs, applications and realizations of Secure Connected Things and IoT.
As experts in the developmen...

Banach, Fréchet, Hilbert and Neumann Spaces

Analysis for PDEs Set – Volume 1

Jacques Simon, CNRS, France

This book is the first of a set dedicated to the mathematical tools used in partial differential equations derived from physics.
Its focus is on normed or semi-normed vector spaces, including the spaces of Banach, Fréchet and Hilbert, with new developments on Neumann spaces, but also on extractable spaces.
The author presents the main properties of these spaces, which are useful for the construc...

Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields

From Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) to Radio Frequency

Patrick Staebler, Consultant

Everyone, whether they like it or not, is exposed to electromagnetic fields, most of the time, at very low levels. In this case, they are inconsequential, but they can cause adverse health effects when they become intense enough. This topic is complex and sensitive.
Covering frequencies from 0 Hz to 300 GHz, Human Exposure to Electromagnetic Fields provides an overview of this vast topic. After a...

Semi-Markov Migration Models for Credit Risk

Stochastic Models for Insurance Set – Volume 1

Guglielmo D’Amico, “G. d’Annunzio” University of Chieti-Pescara, Italy Giuseppe Di Biase, “G. d’Annunzio” University of Chieti-Pescara, Italy Jacques Janssen, Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management, Belgium Raimondo Manca, University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Italy

Credit risk is one of the most important contemporary problems for banks and insurance companies. Indeed, for banks, more than forty percent of the equities are necessary to cover this risk. Though this problem is studied by large rating agencies with substantial economic, social and financial tools, building stochastic models is nevertheless necessary to complete this descriptive orientation.

Enterprise Interoperability


Edited by Bernard Archimède, ENIT (Ecole Nationale d'Ingénieurs de Tarbes), France Bruno Vallespir, University of Bordeaux, France

Interoperability of enterprises is one of the main requirements for economical and industrial collaborative networks. Enterprise interoperability (EI) is based on the three domains: architectures and platforms, ontologies and enterprise modeling.
This book presents the EI vision of the “Grand Sud-Ouest” pole (PGSO) of the European International Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability...

Sociobiology vs Socioecology

Consequences of an Unraveling Debate

Sejin Park, Seoul National University, South Korea Georges Guille-Escuret, CNRS, France

As a theory, sociobiology is opposed to socio-ecology, a discipline hampered since its birth. The indictment of the ideological intentions of the first has obscured the notion that the growing domination of the image of the “selfish gene” has obstructed the necessary rise of the second.
For 40 years, a terrible force of inertia has thus frozen the global analysis of socio-ecological interacti...
