Title:Software Reliability Modeling [electronic resource] : Fundamentals and Applications
Author(s): Shigeru Yamada
Date:2014
Publisher:Tokyo : Springer Japan : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Software reliability is one of the most important characteristics of software product quality. Its measurement and management technologies during the software product life cycle are essential to produce and maintainquality/reliable software systems. Part 1 of this book introduces several aspects of software reliability modeling and its applications. Hazard rate and nonhomogeneous Poisson process (NHPP) models are investigated particularly forquantitative software reliability assessment. Further, impe rfect debugging and software availability models are discussed with reference to incorporating practical factors of dynamic software behavior. Three software managementproblems are presented as application technologies of software reliability models: the optimal software release problem, the statistical testing-progress control, and the optimal testing-effort allocation problem. Part 2 of the bookdescribes several recent developments in software reliability modeling and their applications as quantitative techniques for software quality/reliability measurement and assessment. The discussion includes a quality engineeringanalysis of human factors affecting software reliability during the design review phase, which is the upper stream of software development , as well as software reliability growth models based on stochastic differential equations anddiscrete calculus during the testing phase, which is the lower stream. The final part of the book provides an illustration of quality-oriented software managemen t analysis by applying the multivariate analysis method and the existingsoftware reliability growth models to actual process monitoring data

Note:Complexity Science and Chaos Theory are fascinating areas of scientific research with wide-ranging applications. The interdisciplinary nature and ubiquity of complexity and chaos are features that provides scientists with amotivation to pursue genera l theoretical tools and frameworks. Complex systems give rise to emergent behaviors, which in turn produce novel and interesting phenomena in science, engineering, as well as in the socio-economic sciences.The aim of all Symposia on Chaos and Complex Syst ems (CCS) is to bring together scientists, engineers, economists and social scientists, and to discuss the latest insights and results obtained in the area of correspondingnonlinear-system complex (chaotic) behavior. Especially for the 4th International I nterdisciplinary Chaos Symposium on Chaos and Complex Systems, which took place April 29th to May 2nd, 2012 in Antalya, Turkey, the scope of thesymposium had been further enlarged so as to encompass the presentation of work from circuits to econophysics, and from nonlinear analysis to the history of chaos theory. The corresponding proceedings collected in this volumeaddress a broad spectrum of contemporary topics, including but not limited to networks, circuits, systems, biology, evolution and ecology, n onlinear dynamics and pattern formation, as well as neural, psychological, psycho-social,socio-economic, management complexity and global systems

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive and instructive coverage of vehicular traffic flow dynamics and modeling. It makes this fascinating interdisciplinary topic, which to date was only documented in parts by specializedmonographs, accessible to a b road readership. Numerous figures and problems with solutions help the reader to quickly understand and practice the presented concepts. This book is targeted at students of physics and traffic engineeringand, more generally, also at students and professi onals in computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary topics. It also offers material for project work in programming and simulation at college and university level. The mainpart, after presenting different categories of traffic data, is devoted t o a mathematical description of the dynamics of traffic flow, covering macroscopic models which describe traffic in terms of density, as well as microscopicmany-particle models in which each particle corresponds to a vehicle and its driver.Focus chapters on traffic instabilities and model calibration/validation present these topics in a novel and systematic way.Finally, thetheoretical framework is shown at work in selected applications such as traffic-state and travel-time estimation, intelligent transpor tation systems, traffic operations management, and a detailed physics-based model for fuelconsumption and emissions

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Industrial optimization lies on the crossroads between mathematics, computer science, engineering and management. This book presents these fields as a conversation between the theory of mathematics and computer science and casestudies demonstrating e ngineering and management. Most of all, the case studies illustrate what may reasonably be expected from an optimization project in a commercial enterprise. While many other books treat some of the aspects ofthis book, it is practical and may be used as a manual for conducting an optimization project. This book will not make its reader into a mathematician but it will help him to improve his plant. The book requires no mathematical ortechnical background beyond a good high school training all else is addr essed within. It is aimed at managers or engineers of industrial facilities and is also suitable for university students and their professors as an illustrationof how academic material may be used in real life. The book includes 19 case studies that were conducted in real plants. They include chemical plants, fossil power plants, wind power plants, nuclear power plants, oil refineries, oilproduction plants, injection molding fascilities and retail industry shops. All case studies were conducted by the aut hor in cooperation and co-authorship with some of the leading industrial enterprises including RWE, Vattenfall, EDF,PetroChina, Vestolit, Sasol, and Hella

Note:Waiting in lines is a staple of everyday human life.Without really noticing, we are doing it when we go to buy a ticket at a movie theater, stop at a bank to make an account withdrawal, or proceed to checkout a purchase fromone of our favorite depart ment stores.Oftentimes, waiting lines are due to overcrowded, overfilling, or congestionany time there is more customer demand for a service than can be provided, a waiting line forms.Queuingsystems is a term used to describe the methods and techniques mo st ideal for measuring the probability and statistics of a wide variety of waiting line models.This book provides an introduction to basic queuing systems, such asM/M/1 and its variants, as well as newer concepts like systems with priorities, networks of queues, and general service policies.Numerical examples are presented to guide readers into thinking about practical real-worldapplications, and students and researcherswill be able to apply the methods learned to designing queuing systems that extend bey ond the classroom.Very little has been published in the area of queuing systems, and this volume willappeal to graduate-level students, researchers, and practitioners in the areas of management science, applied mathematics, engineering, computer science, and statistics.

Note:Six Sigma has arisen in the last two decades as a breakthrough Quality Management Methodology. With Six Sigma, we are solving problems and improving processes using as a basis one of the most powerful tools of human development:the scientific method. For the analysis of data, Six Sigma requires the use of statistical software, being R an Open Source option that fulfills this requirement. R is a software system that includes a programming language widely usedin academic and research departments. Nowad ays, it is becoming a real alternative within corporate environments. The aim of this book is to show how R can be used as the software tool in the development of Six Sigma projects. Thebook includes a gentle introduction to Six Sigma and a variety of ex amples showing how to use R within real situations. It has been conceived as a self contained piece. Therefore, it is addressed not only to Six Sigma practitioners,but also to professionals trying to initiate themselves in this management methodology. The book may be used as a text book as well

Title:Parallel Coordinates [electronic resource] : Visual Multidimensional Geometry and Its Applications
Author(s): Alfred Inselberg
Date:2009
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 about visualization, systematically incorporating the fantastic human pattern recognition into the problem-solving process, and focusing on parallel coordinates. The barrier, imposed by our three-dimensionalhabitation and perceptual expe rience, has been breached by this innovative and versatile methodology. The accurate visualization of multidimensional problems and multivariate data unlocks insights into the role of dimensionality.Beginning with an introductory chapter on geometry, the mathematical foundations are intuitively developed, interlaced with applications to data mining, information visualization, computer vision, geometric modeling, collisionavoidance for air traffic and process-control. Many results appear for the first time . Multidimensional lines, planes, proximities, surfaces and their properties are unambiguously recognized (i.e. convexity viewed in any dimension)enabling powerful construction algorithms (for intersections, interior-points, linear-programming). Key featu res of Parallel Coordinates: * An easy-to-read self-contained chapter on data mining and information visualization * Numerousexercises with solutions, from basic to advanced topics, course projects and research directions * Fast Track markers throughout p rovide a quick grasp of essential material. * Extensive bibliography, index, and a chapter containinga collection of recent results (i.e. visualizing large networks, complex-valued functions and more) Parallel Coordinates requires only an elementary knowl edge of linear algebra. It is well-suited for self-study and as a textbook (orcompanion) for courses on information visualization, data mining, mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering, finance, management, manufacturing, in scientific disci plines and even the arts

Title:Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert A Meyers
Date:2009
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:Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science provides an authoritative single source for understanding and applying the concepts of complexity theory together with the tools and measures for analyzing complex systems in allfields of science and eng ineering. The science and tools of complexity and systems science include theories of self-organization, complex systems, synergetics, dynamical systems, turbulence, catastrophes, instabilities, nonlinearity,stochastic processes, chaos, neural networks, c ellular automata, adaptive systems, and genetic algorithms. Examples of near-term problems and major unknowns that can be approached through complexity and systems science include: Thestructure, history and future of the universe the biological basis of c onsciousness the integration of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics as systems biology human longevity limits the limits of computing sustainability oflife on earth predictability, dynamics and extent of earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, and other na tural disasters the dynamics of turbulent flows lasers or fluids in physics, microprocessor design macromolecular assembly inchemistry and biophysics brain functions in cognitive neuroscience climate change ecosystem management traffic management and busi ness cycles. All these seemingly quite different kinds of structure formation have a number ofimportant features and underlying structures in common. These deep structural similarities can be exploited to transfer analytical methods and understanding from one field to another. This unique work will extend the influence ofcomplexity and system science to a much wider audience than has been possible to date
