Computer and Communications networks are key infrastructures of the information society with high socio-economic value as they contribute to the correct operations of many critical services (from healthcare to finance and transportation). Internet is the core of today’s computer-communication infrastructures. This has transformed the Internet, from a robust network for data transfer between computers, to a global, content-rich, communication and information system where contents are increasingly generated by the users, and distributed according to human social relations. Next-generation network technologies, architectures and protocols are therefore required to overcome the limitations of the legacy Internet and add new capabilities and services. The future Internet should be ubiquitous, secure, resilient, and closer to human communication paradigms.

Computers and Biomedical Research

The Journal of Biomedical Informatics (formerly Computers and Biomedical Research) has been redesigned to reflect a commitment to high-quality original research papers and reviews in the area of biomedical informatics. Although published articles are motivated by applications in the biomedical sciences (for example, clinical medicine, health care, population health, imaging, and bioinformatics), the journal emphasizes reports of new methodologies and techniques that have general applicability and that form the basis for the evolving science of biomedical informatics. Articles on medical devices, and formal evaluations of completed systems, including clinical trials of information technologies, would generally be more suitable for publication in other venues. Papers on applications of signal processing and image analysis are often more suitable for biomedical engineering journals, although we do publish papers that emphasize the information management and knowledge representation/modeling issues that arise in the storage and use of biological signals. System descriptions are welcome if they illustrate and substantiate the underlying methodology that is the principal focus of the report.

Pervasive and Mobile Computing

Pervasive computing, often synonymously called ubiquitous computing, is an emerging field of research that brings in revolutionary paradigms for computing models in the 21st century. Tremendous developments in such technologies as wireless communications and networking, mobile computing and handheld devices, embedded systems, wearable computers, sensors, RFID tags, smart spaces, middleware, software agents, and the like, have led to the evolution of pervasive computing platforms as natural successor of mobile computing systems. The goal of pervasive computing is to create ambient intelligence where network devices embedded in the environment provide unobtrusive connectivity and services all the time, thus improving human experience and quality of life without explicit awareness of the underlying communications and computing technologies. In this environment, the world around us (e.g., key chains, coffee mugs, computers, appliances, cars, homes, offices, cities, and the human body) is interconnected as pervasive network of intelligent devices that cooperatively and autonomously collect, process and transport information, in order to adapt to the associated context and activity.

The highlights include: clarification of topics which are often misunderstood and misused, such as bias classes and PA nomenclatures; the consideration of both hybrid and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (MMICs); discussions of switch-mode and current-mode PA design approaches and an explanation of the differences; coverage of the linearity issue in PA design at circuit level, with advice on low distortion power stages; and, analysis of the hot topic of Doherty amplifier design, plus a description of advanced techniques based on multi-way and multi-stage architecture solutions. “High Efficiency RF and Microwave Solid State Power Amplifiers” is: an ideal tutorial for MSc and postgraduate students taking courses in microwave electronics and solid state circuit/device design; and, a useful reference text for practising electronic engineers and researchers in the field of PA design and microwave and RF engineering. With its unique unified vision of solid state amplifiers, you won’t find a more comprehensive publication on the topic.

Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence

Author C. Foias … [et al.].
Place of Publication Cambridge New York
Date of Publication c2001
Publisher Cambridge University Press

Navier-Stokes equations and turbulence

This book aims to bridge the gap between practising mathematicians and the practitioners of turbulence theory. It presents the mathematical theory of turbulence to engineers and physicists, and the physical theory of turbulence to mathematicians. The book is the result of many years of research by the authors to analyse turbulence using Sobolev spaces and functional analysis. In this way the authors have recovered parts of the conventional theory of turbulence, deriving rigorously from the Navier-Stokes equations what had been arrived at earlier by phenomenological arguments. The mathematical technicalities are kept to a minimum within the book, enabling the language to be at a level understood by a broad audience. Each chapter is accompanied by appendices giving full details of the mathematical proofs and subtleties. This unique presentation should ensure a volume of interest to mathematicians, engineers and physicists.

Running an agile software development project

This book offers a practical approach to building small to medium software systems for real business clients. Based on more than 100 actual commercial projects, this book clearly explains how to run an agile software development project that delivers high-quality, high-value solutions to business clients. It concentrates on the practical, social, business, and management aspects as well as the technical issues involved. Professor Holcombe successfully connects readers with the wave of ‘Agile 2.0′ concepts that take the techniques of agile development and place them in the service of business goals. Since it is widely believed that the use of Windows XP will become much more common in coming years, readers should be armed with cutting-edge knowledge of the latest practices in the field. Further features of the book include case studies that provide real-world examples and describe how XP was introduced into the environment. Analysis is provided to help readers determine which elements of XP are suitable for the unique challenges and environments for different projects. Problems of a failing agile project and how they can be fixed are covered, including insight into which managerial techniques can be employed. An Instructor’s Guide provides practical advice on how to motivate students, organize real group projects, and deal, in a simple and effective way, with many of the problems that arise. A sample syllabus, sample tests, and additional case study information are available on an instructor’s password-protected ftp site. “Running an Agile Software Development Project” is an indispensable guide for professional software developers, engineers, and project managers interested in learning how to use agile processes. It is also a valuable textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level students in computer engineering and software engineering courses.

Introduction to engineering ethics

Author Mike W. Martin, Roland Schinzinger
Place of Publication Boston
Date of Publication c2010
Publisher McGraw-Hill Higher Education

Introduction to engineering ethics

“Introduction to Engineering Ethics” provides the background for discussion of the basic issues in engineering ethics. Emphasis is given to the moral problems engineers face in the corporate setting. It places those issues within a philosophical framework, and it seems to exhibit both their social importance and their intellectual challenge. The primary goal is to stimulate critical and responsible reflection on moral issues surrounding engineering practice and to provide the conceptual tools necessary for pursuing those issues. As per new ABET 2000 guidelines, more and more introductory engineering courses cover engineering ethics as part of their instruction. Students preparing to function within the engineering profession need to be introduced to the basic issues in engineering ethics. This book places those issues within a wider philosophical framework than has been customary in the past and aims to stimulate critical and responsible reflection on the moral issues surrounding engineering practice and to provide the conceptual tools necessary for pursuing those issues..

Computers and intractability : a guide to the theory of Np-completeness

Author Michael R. Garey
Place of Publication New York
Date of Publication c1979
Publisher W. H. Freeman

Computers and Intractability: A Guide to the Theory of Np-Completeness

This book’s introduction features a humorous story of a man with a line of people behind him, who explains to his boss, “I can’t find an efficient algorithm, but neither can all these famous people.” This man illustrates an important quality of a class of problems, namely, the NP-complete problems: if you can prove that a problem is in this class, then it has no known polynomial-time solution that is guaranteed to work in general. This quality implies that the problem is difficult to deal with in practice.

 

The focus of this book is to teach the reader how to identify, deal with, and understand the essence of NP-complete problems; Computers and Intractability does all of those things effectively. In a readable yet mathematically rigorous manner, the book covers topics such as how to prove that a given problem is NP-complete and how to cope with NP-complete problems. (There is even a chapter on advanced topics, with numerous references.) Computers and Intractability also contains a list of more than 300 problems–most of which are known to be NP-complete–with comments and references.

Using information technology : a practical introduction to computers & communications

The Williams, Using Information Technology, 8th Edition” utilizes a practical, applied approach to technology. This text is user-focused and has been highly updated including topics, pictures and examples. “The Williams” text contains less theory and more application to engage students who might be more familiar with technology. Continually published and updated for over 15 years, “Using Information Technology” was the first text to foresee and define the impact of digital convergence – the fusion of computers and communications. It was also the first text to acknowledge the new priorities imposed by the Internet and World Wide Web and bring discussion of them from late in the course to the beginning. Today, it is directed toward the ‘Always On’ generation that is at ease with digital technology – comfortable with iPhones, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Wikipedia, and the blogosphere – but not always savvy about its processes, possibilities, and liabilities. This 8th edition continues to address the two most significant challenges that instructors face in teaching this course – trying to make the course interesting and challenging and trying to teach to students with a variety of computer backgrounds. In addition, this text correlates with Simnet Online for full integration of resources within the Computing Concepts course.
