Title:Input Modeling with Phase-Type Distributions and Markov Models [electronic resource] : Theory and Applications
Author(s): Peter Buchholz
Jan Kriege
Iryna Felko
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Containing a summary of several recent results on Markov-based input modeling in a coherent notation, this book introduces and compares algorithms for parameter fitting and gives an overview of available software tools in thearea. Due to progress mad e in recent years with respect to new algorithms to generate PH distributions and Markovian arrival processes from measured data, the models outlined are useful alternatives to other distributions or stochasticprocesses used for input modeling. Graduate s tudents and researchers in applied probability, operations research and computer science along with practitioners using simulation or analytical models for performance analysis and capacityplanning will find the unified notation and up-to-date results pre sented useful. Input modeling is the key step in model based system analysis to adequately describe the load of a system using stochastic models. The goal of inputmodeling is to find a stochastic model to describe a sequence ofmeasurements from a real sys tem to model for example the inter-arrival times of packets in a computer network or failure times of components in a manufacturing plant.Typical application areas are performance and dependability analysis of computer systems, communication networks, log istics or manufacturing systems but also the analysis of biological or chemical reaction networks and similarproblems. Often the measured values have a high variability and are correlated. Its been known for a long time that Markov based models like phase type distributions or Markovian arrival processes are very general and allow one tocapture even complex behaviors. However, the parameterization of these models results often in a complex and non-linear optimization problem. Only recently, several new re sults about the modeling capabilities of Markov based models andalgorithms to fit the parameters of those models have been published
Contents:1. Introduction
2. Phase Type Distributions
3. Parameter Fitting for Phase Type Distributions

Title:Advances in Network Analysis and its Applications [electronic resource]
Author(s): Evangelos Kranakis
Date:2013
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:As well as highlighting potentially useful applications for network analysis, this volume identifies new targets for mathematical research that promise to provide insights into network systems theory as well as facilitating thecross-fertilization of ideas between sectors. Focusing on financial, security and social aspects of networking, the volume adds to the growing body of evidence showing that network analysis has applications to transportation,communication, health, finance, and social policy mor e broadly. It provides powerful models for understanding the behavior of complex systems that, in turn, will impact numerous cutting-edge sectors in science and engineering, such aswireless communication, network security, distributed computing and social networking, financial analysis, and cyber warfare. The volume offers an insider' s view of cutting-edge research in network systems, including methodologieswith immense potential for interdisciplinary application. The contributors have all presented mate rial at a series of workshops organized on behalf of Canadas MITACS initiative, which funds projects and study grants inmathematics for information technology and complex systems. These proceedings include papers from workshops on financial networks, netw ork security and cryptography, and social networks. MITACS has shown that the partlyghettoized nature of network systems research has led to duplicated work in discrete fields, and thus this initiative has the potential to save time and accelerate the pac e of research in a number of areas of network systemsresearch

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

Note:Mathematical Aspects of Network Routing Optimization provides a thorough introduction to the subject of algorithms for network routing and focuses on multicast and wireless ad hoc systems. The modern world is connected throughlarge-scale, computation al networked systems such as the Internet and because of the ever-advancing technology of networking, efficient algorithms have become increasingly necessary to solve some of the problems developing in thisarea. This work focuses on computational issues arising from the process of optimizing network routes, such as the quality of resulting links and their reliability. Algorithms are key to understanding the protocols underlyingmulticast routing. The main objective in the text is to derive efficient algor ithms, with or without the guarantee of approximation, that can be applied to address these problems.

Note:This volume covers recent developments in the design, operation, and management of telecommunication and computer network systems in performance engineering and addresses issues of uncertainty, robustness, and risk. Uncertaintyregarding loading and s ystem parameters leads to challenging optimization and robustness issues. Stochastic modeling combined with optimization theory ensures the optimum end-to-end performance of telecommunication or computer networksystems. In view of the diverse design optio ns possible, supporting models have many adjustable parameters and choosing the best set for a particular performance objective is delicate and time-consuming. An optimization based approachdetermines the optimal possible allocation for these parameters. Researchers and graduate students working at the interface of telecommunications and operations research will benefit from this book. Due to the practical approach, thisbook will also serve as a reference tool for scientists and engineers in telecommunica tion and computer networks who depend upon optimization

Title:Structural Analysis of Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Matthias Dehmer
Date:2011
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Because of the increasing complexity and growth of real-world networks, their analysis by using classical graph-theoretic methods is oftentimes a difficult procedure. As a result, there is a strong need to combine graph-theoreticmethods with mathemat ical techniques from other scientific disciplines, such as machine learning and information theory, in order to analyze complex networks more adequately. Filling a gap in literature, this self-contained bookpresents theoretical and application-oriented re sults to structurally explore complex networks. The work focuses not only on classical graph-theoretic methods, but also demonstrates the usefulness of structural graph theory as a toolfor solving interdisciplinary problems. Special emphasis is given to m ethods related to the following areas: * Applications to biology, chemistry, linguistics, and data analysis * Graph colorings * Graph polynomials * Informationmeasures for graphs * Metrical properties of graphs * Partitions and decompositions * Quantitati ve graph measures Structural Analysis of Complex Networks is suitable for a broad, interdisciplinary readership of researchers,practitioners, and graduate students in discrete mathematics, statistics, computer science, machine learning, artificial intelli gence, computational and systems biology, cognitive science, computational linguistics, and mathematicalchemistry. The book may be used as a supplementary textbook in graduate-level seminars on structural graph analysis, complex networks, or network-based machine learning methods

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Deeply rooted in fundamental research in Mathematics and Computer Science, Cellular Automata (CA) are recognized as an intuitive modeling paradigm for Complex Systems. Already very basic CA, with extremely simple micro dynamicssuch as the Game of Lif e, show an almost endless display of complex emergent behavior. Conversely, CA can also be designed to produce a desired emergent behavior, using either theoretical methodologies or evolutionary techniques.Meanwhile, beyond the original realm of applicati ons - Physics, Computer Science, and Mathematics CA have also become work horses in very different disciplines such as epidemiology, immunology, sociology, and finance. In thiscontext of fast and impressive progress, spurred further by the enormous attra ction these topics have on students, this book emerges as a welcome overview of the field for its practitioners, as well as a good starting point fordetailed study on the graduate and post-graduate level. The book contains three parts, two major parts on theory and applications, and a smaller part on software. The theory part contains fundamental chapters on how to design and/orapply CA for many different areas. In the applications part a number of representative examples of really using CA in a broad ran ge of disciplines is provided - this part will give the reader a good idea of the real strength of thiskind of modeling as well as the incentive to apply CA in their own field of study

Date:2010
Publisher:Boston : Birkhuser Boston
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents recently developed methodologies that utilize quantized information in system identification and explores their potential in extending control capabilities for systems with limited sensor information ornetworked systems. The result s of these methodologies can be applied to signal processing and control design of communication and computer networks, sensor networks, mobile agents, coordinated data fusion, remote sensing, telemedicine,and other fields in which noise-corrupted quantiz ed data need to be processed. Providing a comprehensive coverage of quantized identification, the book treats linear and nonlinear systems, as well as time-invariant and time-varyingsystems. The authors examine independent and dependent noises, stochastic - and deterministic-bounded noises, and also noises with unknown distribution functions. The key methodologies combine empirical measures andinformation-theoretic approaches to derive identification algorithms, provide convergence and convergence speed, e stablish efficiency of estimation, and explore input design, threshold selection and adaptation, and complexity analysis.System Identification with Quantized Observations is an excellent resource for graduate students, systems theorists, control engineers , applied mathematicians, as well as practitioners who use identification algorithms in their work.Selected material from the book may be used in graduate-level courses on system identification

Nowadays, it is hard to find an electronic device without some code inside. Grbner bases have emerged asthe main tool in comput ational algebra, permitting numerous applications, both in theoretical contexts and in practical situations. This book is the first book ever giving a comprehensive overview on the application of commutativealgebra to coding theory and cryptography. For e xample, all important properties of algebraic/geometric coding systems (including encoding, construction, decoding, list decoding) are individually analysed, reporting all significantapproaches appeared in the literature. Also, stream ciphers, PK cryptogr aphy, symmetric cryptography and Polly Cracker systems deserve each a separate chapter, where all the relevant literature is reported and compared. While manyshort notes hint at new exciting directions, the reader will find that all chapters fit nicely wi thin a unified notation

Title:Reliability, Life Testing and the Prediction of Service Lives [electronic resource] : For Engineers and Scientists
Author(s): Sam C Saunders
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is intended for students and practitioners who have had a calculus-based statistics course and who have an interest in safety considerations such as reliability, strength, and duration-of-load or service life. Manypersons studying statistic al science will be employed professionally where the problems encountered are obscure, what should be analyzed is not clear, the appropriate assumptions are equivocal, and data are scant. Yet tutorial problemsof this nature are virtually never encountered in coursework. In this book there is no disclosure with many of the data sets what type of investigation should be made or what assumptions are to be used. Most reliability practitionerswill be employed where personal interaction between disciplines is a necessity. A section is included on communication skills to facilitate model selection and formulation based on verifiable assumptions, rather than favorableconclusions. However, whether the answer is right can never be ascertained. Past and current appl ications of stochastic modeling to life-length can only be a guide for future adaptations under different conditions, with newmaterials in unknown usages. This book unifies the study of cumulative-damage distributions, namely, Wald and Tweedie (i.e., inve rse-Gaussian and its reciprocal) with fatigue-life. These distributions are most useful when thecoefficient-of-variation is more appropriate than is the variance as a measure of dispersion. It is shown, uniquely, that the same hyperbolic-sine transformati on of each life length variate has a Chi-square one-df distribution. Thisproperty is useful in the sample statistics. These IHRA distributions realistically model life-length, strength or duration of load under linear cumulative damage and can be combined as approximations in non-linear situations.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In the 1960s and 1970s deep space missions were dispatched in pairs in case one was lost in launch or failed during its journey. Following the triumphs of the Viking landings on Mars in 1976 and both Voyagers spacecraftsuccessfully surveying the oute r giant planets of the Solar System, it was decided by NASA to cut costs and send out just a single probe. Although Magellan successfully mapped Venus by radar, it suffered from problems during theflight. Then came the loss of Mars Observer, whose engine exploded as it was preparing to enter Mars orbit because it was using technology designed for Earths satellites and the engine was not suited to spending several months inspace. Later came the high-profile losses of Mars Climate Observer and Mars Polar La nder - a consequence of the faster, better, cheaper philosophy introduced by Dan Goldin in 1993. Even the highly successful Galileo mission suffered amajor setback when its high-gain antenna (also based on satellite mission suffered a major setback when i ts high-gain antenna (also based on satellite communication technology) failed to deploy fully, greatly diminishing the craftsradio transmission capabilities, forcing the ground crew to re-programme the on-board computer to enable it to fulfil its mission and provide stunning images of Jupiter and its moons. In Space Systems Failures, David Harland (hereworking with co-author Ralph Lorenz) describes the many quite fascinating tales of woe involving failures of rockets, satellites and deep space missions i n his inimitable style, providing a unique insight into the trials andtribulations of exploration at the high frontier
