Title:Solving Non-standard Packing Problems by Global Optimization and Heuristics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Giorgio Fasano
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book results from a long-term research effort aimed at tackling complex non-standard packing issues which arise in space engineering. The main research objective is to optimize cargo loading and arrangement, in compliancewith a set of stringent rules. Complicated geometrical aspects are also taken into account, in addition to balancing conditions based on attitude control specifications. Chapter 1 introduces the class of non-standard packing problemsstudied. Chapter 2 gives a detailed explanatio n of a general model for the orthogonal packing of tetris-like items in a convex domain. A number of additional conditions are looked at in depth, including the prefixed orientation ofsubsets of items, the presence of unusable holes, separation planes and structural elements, relative distance bounds as well as static and dynamic balancing requirements. The relative feasibility sub-problem which is a special casethat does not have an optimization criterion is discussed in Chapter 3. This setting can be ex ploited by introducing an ad hoc objective function, aimed at facilitating the finding of integer-feasible solutions. The third chapter alsodiscusses the issue of tightening the general MIP model by introducing valid inequalities. A MIP-based heuristic ap proach is developed in Chapter 4, where the basic concept of abstract configuration is presented. Chapter 5 is devotedto experimental results relevant to a real-world application framework. Chapter 6 adopts both extensions of the general MIP model and non -linear formulations to tackle two further non-standard packing issues. The final Chapter 7presents conclusions and provides insights regarding prospective developments (including non-standard scheduling aspects). Practitioners and researchers interested in advanced optimization model development and solution in the contextof logistics, transportation systems, complex structures, manufacturing and electronics will find this book useful. The book can als

Note:This book deals with basic aspects of polymer electronics and optoelectronics. There is an enormous world-wide effort both in basic scientific research as well as in industrial development in the area of organic electronics. It isbecoming increasingl y clear that, if devices based on organic materials are ever going to have a significant relevance beyond being a cheap replacement for inorganic semiconductors, there will be a need to understand interfaceformation, film growth and functionality. A contr ol of these aspects will allow the realisation of totally new device concepts exploiting the enormous flexibility inherent in organic chemistry. In this book we focus onoligomeric/molecular films as we believe that the control of molecular structures and interfaces provides highly defined systems which allow, on the one hand the study of the basic physics and on the other hand to find the importantparameters necessary to improve organic devices

Note:The goals of the 10th International Space Conference on Protection of Materials and Structures from Space Environment ICPMSE-10J, since its inception in 1992, have been to facilitate exchanges between members of the variousengineering and science dis ciplines involved in the development of space materials, including aspects of LEO, GEO and Deep Space environments, ground-based qualification, and in-flight experiments and lessons learned from operationalvehicles that are closely interrelated to discipl ines of the atmospheric sciences, solar-terrestrial interactions and space life sciences. The knowledge of environmental conditions on and around the Moon, Mars, Venus and the low Earthorbit as well as other possible candidates for landing such as asteroi ds have become an important issue, and protecting both hardware and human life from the effects of space environments has taken on a new meaning in light of theincreased interest in space travel and colonization of other planets. And while many material e xperiments have been carried out on the ground and in open space in the last 50 years (LDEF, MEEP, SARE, MISSE, AOP, DSPSE, ESEM, EURECA,HST, MDIM, MIS, MPID, MPAC and SEED), many questions regarding the environmental impact of space on materials remain e ither poorly understood or unanswered. The coming generations of scientists will have to continue this work andtackle new challenges, continuing to build the level of confidence humans will need to continue the colonization of space. It is hoped that the proceedings of the ICPMSE-10J presented in this book will constitute a small contributionto doing so

Title:Physics of Collisional Plasmas [electronic resource] : Introduction to High-Frequency Discharges

Note:The Physics of Collisional Plasmas deals with the plasma physics of interest to laboratory research and industrial applications, such as lighting, fabrication of microelectronics, destruction of greenhouse gases. Its emphasis ison explaining the phys ical mechanisms, rather than the detailed mathematical description and theoretical analysis. At the introductory level, it is important to convey the characteristic physical phenomena of plasmas, before addressingthe ultimate formalism of kinetic theory, with its microscopic, statistical mechanics approach. To this aim, this text translates the physical phenomena into more tractable equations, using the hydrodynamic model this considers theplasma as a fluid, in which the macroscopic physical parameters ar e the statistical averages of the microscopic (individual) parameters. Thisbook is an introduction to the physics of collisional plasmas, as opposed to plasmas inspace. It is intended for graduate students in physics and engineering . The first chapter in troduces with progressively increasing detail, the fundamental concepts of plasma physic. The motion of individual charged particles invarious configurations of electric and magnetic fields is detailed in the second chapter while the third chapter conside rs the collective motion of the plasma particles described according to a hydrodynamic model. The fourth chapter ismost original in that it introduces a general approach to energy balance, valid for all types of discharges comprising direct current(DC) an d high frequency (HF) discharges, including an applied static magnetic field. The basicconcepts required in this fourth chapter have been progressively introduced in the previous chapters. The text is enriched with approx. 100 figures, and alphabetical in dex and 45 fully resolved problems. Mathematical and physicalappendices provide complementary information or allow to go deeper in a given subject

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This bookis botha course book and a monograph. In fact, it has developed from notes given to graduate course students on materials processing in the years 1989 to 2006. Electromagnetic Processing of Materials (EPM),originatesfroma branchof materials science and engineeringdeveloped in the1980s as a field aiming to create new materials and/or design processes by making use of various functions which appear when applying the electric andmagnetic fieldsto materials. It is based on transport phenomena, m aterials processing and magnetohydrodynamics. The first chapter briefly introduces the history, background and technology of EPM. In the second chapter, the concept oftransport phenomena is concisely introduced and in the third chapter the essential part of magnetohydrodynamics is transcribed and readers areshown that the concept of transport phenomenadoes not only applyto heat, mass andmomentum, but also magnetic field. The fourth chapter describes electromagnetic processing of electrically conductive ma terials such as electromagnetic levitation, mixing, brake, and etc., which are caused by the Lorentz force. Thefifth chapter treats magnetic processing of organic and non-organic materials such as magnetic levitation, crystal orientation, structural align ment and etc., which are induced by the magnetization force. This part is a new academicfield named Magneto-Science, which focuseson the development of super-conducting magnets. This book is written so as to be understood by any graduate student in engine ering courses but also to be of interest to engineers andresearchers in industries

Note:Effective evacuation of people from closed spaces is an extremely important topic, since it can save real lives in emergency situations that can be brought about by natural and human made disasters. Usually there are static mapsposted at various plac es at buildings that illustrate routes that should be taken during emergencies. However, when disasters happen, some of these routes might not be valid because of structural problems due to the disaster itself andmore importantly because of the distributi on of congestion of people spread over the area. The average flow of traffic depends on the traffic density. Therefore, if all the people follow the same route, or follow a route withoutknowing the congestion situation, they can end up being part of the c ongestion which results in very low flow rate or worse a traffic jam. Hence it becomes extremely important to design evacuations that inform people how fast and inwhich direction to move based on real-time information obtained about the people distributio n using various sensors. The sensors used can include cameras, infra red sensors etc., and the technology used to inform people about thedesired movement can be communicated using light matrix, small speakers, and in the future using wireless PDAs. This b ook provides mathematical models of pedestrian movements that can be used specifically for designing feedback controllaws for effective evacuation. The book also provides various feedback control laws to accomplish the effective evacuation. The book uses the hydrodynamic hyperbolic PDE macroscopic pedestrian models since they are amenable to feedbackcontrol design. The control designs are obtained through different nonlinear techniques including Lyapunov functional techniques, feedback linearization in th e distributed model, and some discretized techniques

Title:Discrete-Time Markov Chains [electronic resource] : Two-Time-Scale Methods and Applications
Author(s): G. George Yin
Qing Zhang
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Focusing on discrete-time-scale Markov chains, the contents of this book are an outgrowth of some of the authors' recent research. The motivation stems from existing and emerging applications in optimization and control of complexhybrid Markovian sys tems in manufacturing, wireless communication, and financial engineering. Much effort in this book is devoted to designing system models arising from these applications, analyzing them via analytic and probabilistictechniques, and developing feasible comp utational algorithms so as to reduce the inherent complexity. This book presents results including asymptotic expansions of probability vectors, structural properties of occupation measures,exponential bounds, aggregation and decomposition and associated limit processes, and interface of discrete-time and continuous-time systems. One of the salient features is that it contains a diverse range of applications on filtering,estimation, control, optimization, and Markov decision processes, and financial engin eering. This book will be an important reference for researchers in the areas of applied probability, control theory, operations research, as well asfor practitioners who use optimization techniques. Part of the book can also be used in a graduate course of applied probability, stochastic processes, and applications
