Title:Towards Autonomous Soft Matter Systems [electronic resource] : Experiments on Membranes and Active Emulsions
Author(s): Shashi Thutupalli
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book focuses on the assembly, organization and resultant collective dynamics of soft matter systems maintained away from equilibrium byan energy flux. Living matter is the ultimate example of such systems, which arecomprised of different constit uents on very different scales (ions, nucleic acids, proteins, cells). The result of their diverse interactions, maintained using the energy from physiological processes, is a fantastically well-organizedand dynamic whole. This work describes results from minimal, biomimetic systems and primarily investigates membranes and active emulsions, as well as key aspects of both soft matter and non-equilibrium phenomena. It isshown thatthese minimal reconstitutions are already capable of a range of complex behavi our such as nonlinear electric responses, chemical communication and locomotion. These studies will bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of complexsystems by reconstituting key aspects of their form and function in simple model systems. Further, they may also serve as the first technological steps towards artificial soft functional matter

Title:Materials and Reliability Handbook for Semiconductor Optical and Electron Devices [electronic resource]

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Materials and Reliability Handbook for Semiconductor Optical and Electron Devices provides comprehensive coverage of reliability procedures and approaches for electron and photonic devices. These include lasers and high speedelectronics used in cell phones, satellites, data transmission systems and displays. Lifetime predictions for compound semiconductor devices are notoriously inaccurate due to the absence of standard protocols. Manufacturers have reliedon extrapolation back to room temperature of accelerated testing at elevated temperature. This technique fails for scaled, high current density devices. Device failure is driven by electric field or current mechanisms or low activationenergy processes that are masked by other mechanisms at high temp erature. The Handbook addresses reliability engineering for III-V devices, including materials and electrical characterization, reliability testing, and electroniccharacterization. These are used to develop new simulation technologies for device operation and reliability, which allow accurate prediction of reliability as well as the design specifically for improved reliability. The Handbookemphasizes physical mechanisms rather than an electrical definition of reliability. Accelerated aging is useful only if the failure mechanism is known. The Handbook also focuses on voltage and current acceleration stress mechanisms.Provides the first handbook to cover all aspects of compound semiconductor device reliability Systematically describes research results on r eliability and materials issues of both optical and electron devices developed since 2000Covers characterization techniques needed to understand failure mechanisms in compound semiconductor devices Includes experimental approaches in reliability studies P resents case studies of laser degradation and HEMT degradation

Title:Game Theory for Control of Optical Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Lacra Pavel
Date:2012
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Optical networks epitomize complex communication systems, and they comprise the Internets infrastructural backbone. The first of its kind, this book develops the mathematical framework needed from a control perspective totackle various game-theoretic al problems in optical networks. In doing so, it aims to help design control algorithms that optimally allocate the resources of these networks. The books main focus is a control-theoretic analysis ofdynamic systems arising from game formulations with non -separable player utilities and with coupled as well as propagated (modified) constraints. Compared with the conventional static optimization approach, this provides a morerealistic model of how optical networks operate. Its methods and techniques could b e used to improve networks functionality and adaptivity, potentially enhancing thespeed and reliability of communications throughout the world.With its fresh problem-solving approach, Game Theory for Control of Optical Networks is a unique resource for re searchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics and systems/control engineering, as well as those inelectrical and computer engineering

Title:E.T. Talk [electronic resource] : How Will We Communicate with Intelligent Life on Other Worlds?

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Although we have done extensive studies of the Solar System and thus far found over 300 extrasolar planets planets outside our Solar System we have not yet found life, even primitive life, on any planet other than Earth.Might there be life on some of these newly discovered extrasolar planets? Not likely, as most are gas giants or are too close or too far from their sun. However, of late we are finding more and more Earthlike planets. It is nowestimated that about 15 percent of the planets in the ga laxy are Earthlike, and many of these will likely orbit their suns at the right distance to support life as we know it. No one knows yet if radio searches or other means ofdetection will reveal that we are not alone in the universe. But if we do discover intelligent life elsewhere, how will we communicate with it? Are there some universal methods of communication we can use? Is music or mathematicsa universal language? Are there alien intelligences right here on Earth we can use to help us figure out ways of communicating? The answers may surprise you. All of these issues and more are covered in this exciting, readable, andauthoritative book on a subject that is not mere idle speculation anymore. We are certainly getting closer to finding out who, if anyb ody, is out there. This book will not only inform you about the search and the likelihood of findinglife, it will also actually teach you how to talk to aliens!

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book introduces readers to a new and exciting cross-disciplinary field of digital communications with chaos. This field was born around 15 years ago, when it was first demonstrated that nonlinear systems which producecomplex non-periodic noise-l ike chaotic signals, can be synchronized and modulated to carry useful information. Thus, chaotic signals can be used instead of pseudo-random digital sequences for spread-spectrum and private communicationapplications. This deceptively simple idea spun h undreds of research papers, and many novel communication schemes based on chaotic signals have been proposed. However, only very recently researchers have begun to make a transition fromacademic studies toward practical implementation issues, and many pro mising schemes had to be discarded or re-formulated. This book describes the state of the art (both theoretical and experimental) of this novel field. The book iswritten by leading experts in the fields of Nonlinear Dynamics and Electrical Engineering who participated in US Army sponsored Multi-University Research Initiative on Digital Communication using Nonlinear Dynamics. It will be usefulfor active researchers and advanced graduate students interested in this exciting new field

Note:The 2002 Pan-American Advanced Studies Institute School on Quantum Gravity was held at the Centro de Estudios Cientificos (CECS),Valdivia, Chile, January 4-14, 2002. The school featured lectures by ten speakers, and was attendedby nearly 70 students from over 14 countries. A primary goal was to foster interaction and communication between participants from different cultures, both in the laymans sense of the term and in terms of approaches to quantumgravity. We hope that the links formed by students and the school will persist throughout their professional lives, continuing to promote interaction and the essential exchange of ideas that drives research forward. This volumecontains improved and updated versions of the lectures given at the School. It has been prepared both as a reminder for the participants, and so that these pedagogical introductions can be made available to others who were unable toattend. We expect them to serve students of all ages well
