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:Data Storage for Social Networks [electronic resource] : A Socially Aware Approach

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Evidenced by the success of Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, online social networks (OSNs) have become ubiquitous, offering novel ways for people to access information and communicate with each other. As the increasing popularityof social networking is undeniable, scalability is an important issue for any OSN that wants to serve a large number of users. Storing user data for the entire network on a single server can quickly lead to a bottleneck, and,consequently, more servers are needed to expand sto rage capacity and lower data request traffic per server. Adding more servers is just one step to address scalability. The next step is to determine how best to store the data acrossmultiple servers. This problem has been widely-studied in the literature o f distributed and database systems. OSNs, however, represent a different class of data systems. When a user spends time on a social network, the data mostlyrequested is her own and that of her friends e.g., in Facebook or Twitter, these data are the statu s updates posted by herself as well as that posted by the friends. This so-called social locality should be taken into account whendetermining the server locations to store these data, so that when a user issues a read request, all its relevant data can b e returned quickly and efficiently. Social locality is not a design factor in traditional storage systems wheredata requests are always processed independently. Even for todays OSNs, social locality is not yet considered in their data partition schemes. T hese schemes rely on distributed hash tables (DHT), using consistent hashing to assignthe users data to the servers. The random nature of DHT leads to weak social locality which has been shown to result in poor performance under heavy request loads. Data Storage for Social Networks: A Socially Aware Approach is aimedat reviewing the current literature of data storage for online social networks and discussing new methods that take into account s

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The prevalence of imperfect structures, externalities, and imperfect information in existing market systems prevents the marketfrom serving asan efficient mechanism for resource allocation. In the presence ofsuch failures,optimization of economic act ivities provides an effective remedial measure. Cooperative optimization suggests the possibility of socially optimal and individually rational solutions to decision problems involving strategic action overtime however,to guarantee that cooperation will l ast throughout the agreement period,the stringent condition ofsubgame consistencyis required. This textbook presents a treatise on subgame consistent economicoptimization,developing game-theoretic optimization techniquesto establish the foundation for an effective policy menu to tackle sub-optimalcircumstancesthat the conventional market mechanism fails to resolve.Topics coveredinclude: * dynamic optimization * group optimality and individual rationality * time (optimal-trajectory-subgame) consistent econ omic optimization * dynamic economic optimization under uncertainty and subgame consistency *dynamically stable joint ventures * collaborative environmental management * discrete-time subgame consistent economic optimization. This is the first bookto thor oughly addressthe topic of subgame consistent economicoptimization.It will be of particular interest as a research reference forgame theorists, economists, mathematicians, policy makers, and corporate planners. With ample problems and exercises, it is als oauseful textforgraduate students in game theory

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:Grain Boundary Segregation in Metals [electronic resource]
Author(s): Pavel Lejcek
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Grain boundaries are important structural components of polycrystalline materials used in the vast majority of technical applications. Because grain boundaries form a continuous network throughout such materials, their propertiesmay limit their pract ical use. One of the serious phenomena which evoke these limitations is the grain boundary segregation of impurities. It results in the loss of grain boundary cohesion and consequently, in brittle fracture of thematerials. The current book deals with fund amentals of grain boundary segregation in metallic materials and its relationship to the grain boundary structure, classification and other materials properties

Note:A team of outstanding scientists in the field of modern magnetic nanotechnologies illustrates the state of the art in several areas of advanced magneto-electronic devices, magnetic micro-electromechanical systems and high densityinformation storage t echnologies. The physics and chemistry of nano-scale systems have made rapid advances and there are real prospects of translating exciting scientific findings into a new generation of processes and high technologyproducts with a potential impact on severa l industrial sectors. In particular the development of nano-structured magnetic materials plays a leading role in the increasing miniaturization of devices with superior performances. Theapplication areas considered are: i) magneto-electronics, where the control of electron spins in magnetic hetero-structures offers new and improved functionalities in devices of integrated digital electronics. Magnetic randomaccess memories, MRAM are among the principal applications for new non-volatile RAM with fast dyna mics, toward the pico-, femto-second range. ii) magnetic MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems), which are the integration ofmechanical and electro/ferromagnetic elements (micro-actuators and sensors) with conventional electronics MEMS, promise a revolut ion in several product categories. In fact the proposed integration enables the development of smartproducts, where sensors can gather information from the environment by measuring thermal, magnetic, electric, mechanical, biological chemical, optical char acteristics and the electronic section processes the information and theactuator promotes the action realizing a complete control of the environment. iii) Magnetic recording is a leading technology in the information storage domain and the most relevant a pplication in the field of magnetics, showingsurprising continuous progress over several decades towards the limit of terabit per square inch of areal density.>

Note:The rapid growth in electronic systems in the past decade has boosted research in the area of computational intelligence. As it has become increasingly easy to generate, collect, transport, process, and store huge amounts of data,the role of intellig ent algorithms has become prominent in order to visualize, manipulate, retrieve, and interpret the data. For instance, intelligent search techniques have been developed to search for relevant items in hugecollections of web pages, and data mining and inte rpretation techniques play a very important role in making sense out of huge amounts of biomolecular measurements. As a result, the added value of many modern systems is no longerdetermined by hardware only, but increasingly by the intelligent software th at supports and facilitates the user in realizing his or her objectives. This book is the outcome of a series of discussions at the Philips Symposium onIntelligent Algorithms, which was held in Eindhoven in December 2004. It contains many exciting and pra ctical examples of the use of intelligent algorithms in the areas of ambient and biomedical computing. It contains topics such asbioscience computing, database design, machine consciousness, scheduling, video summarization, audio classification, semantic reasoning, machine learning, tracking & localization, secure computing, and communication

Note:The paradigms of dynamic games play an important role in the development of multi-agent models in engineering, economics, and management science. The applicability of their concepts stems from the ability to encompass situationswith uncertainty, inco mplete information, fluctuating coalition structure, and coupled constraints imposed on the strategies of all the players. This bookan outgrowth of the 10th International Symposium on Dynamic Gamespresentscurrent developments of the theory of dynamic game s and its applications to various domains, in particular energy-environment economics and management sciences. The volume uses dynamic game models of various sorts to approach and solveseveral problems pertaining to pursuit-evasion, marketing, finance, cl imate and environmental economics, resource exploitation, as well as auditing and tax evasions. In addition, it includes some chapters on cooperative games, whichare increasingly drawing dynamic approaches to their classical solutions. The book is themati cally organized into six parts: * zero-sum game theory * pursuit-evasion games * games of coalitions * new interpretations of theinterdependence between different members of a social group * original applications to energy-environment economics * manageme nt science applications This work will serve as a state-of-the art account of recent advances in dynamic gametheory and its applications for researchers, practitioners, and graduate students in applied mathematics, engineering, economics, as well as envir onmental and management sciences

Title:Foundations and Applications of Mis [electronic resource] : A Model Theory Approach

Note:Foundations and Applications of MIS presents a unique systems theory approach to management information system (MIS) development. The development is driven by the need to eliminate ambiguity in specification, design andconstruction of the application software. Further, the authors show that the considerable effort being expanded nowadays on validation, verification and testing, as required in current software engineering practices, will be reduced.The approach also reinforces the belief that MIS deve lopment is independent of software development. The work presents an approach that provides a theoretical foundation for MIS development from the systems theoretic viewpoint alongwith practical applications ranging from a transaction processing system to a solver system. Both formal systems theory and automatic system generation based on the authors' newly extended Prolog offer a significant increase in theefficiency of specification, design and production of the application software, as well as an increa se in the functional reliability of the software produced. The book assumes a working knowledge of elementary set theory, logic, andfamiliarity with some systems concepts, such as the automaton model. Senior undergraduates and graduate students, researche rs in management information systems, systems engineers and systems scientists will benefit from this book

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This textbook provides a comprehensive modeling, reformulation and optimization approach for solving production planning and related supply chain planning problems, covering topics from a basic introduction to planning systems,mixed integer programmi ng (MIP) models and algorithms through the advanced description of mathematical results in polyhedral combinatorics required to solve these problems. This book addresses the solution of real life or industrialproduction planning problems (involving comple x production structures with multiple production stages) using a MIP modeling and reformulation approach. It is based on close to twenty years of research in which the authors have played asignificant role. One of the goals of this book is to allow non-ex pert readers, students in business, engineering, applied mathematics and computer science to solve such problems using standard modeling tools and MIP software. Toachieve this the book provides a unique collection of reformulation results, integrating the m into a comprehensive modeling and reformulation approach, as well as an easy to use problem-solving library. Moreover this approach isdemonstrated through a series of real life case studies, exercises and detailed illustrations. Graduate students and re searchers in operations research, management, science and applied mathematics wishing to gain a deeper understandingof the formulations and mathematics underlying this approach will find this book useful because of its detailed treatment of the polyhedral structure of the basic lot-sizing problems and simple mixed integer sets that arise in thedecomposition of more complicated problems. This book will allow the reader to improve formulations of non-standard MIP models and produce state-of-the-art models a nd algorithms
