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

Title:Modelling of Plasmonic and Graphene Nanodevices [electronic resource]
Author(s): Javier Munrriz Arrieta
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The thesis covers a broad range of electronic, optical and opto-electronic devices and various predicted physical effects. In particular, it examines the quantum interference transistor effect in graphene nanorings tunablespin-filtering and spin-depe ndent negative differential resistance in composite heterostructures based on graphene and ferromagnetic materials optical and novel electro-optical bistability and hysteresis in compound systems and thereal-time control of radiation patterns of optical n anoantennas. The direction of the main radiation lobe of a regular plasmonic array can be changed abruptly by small variations in external control parameters. This optical effect,apart from its relevance for applications, is a revealing example of the Umk lapp process and, thus, is a visual manifestation of one of the most fundamental laws of solid state physics: the conservation of the quasi-momentum to withina reciprocal lattice vector. The thesis analyzes not only results for particular device designs b ut also a variety of advanced numerical methods which are extended by the author and described in detail. These methods can be used as asound starting point for further research.

Title:Stochastic Optimization in Insurance [electronic resource] : A Dynamic Programming Approach
Author(s): Pablo Azcue
Nora Muler
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:The main purpose of the book is to show how a viscosity approach can be used to tackle control problems in insurance. The problems covered are the maximization of survival probability as well as the maximization of dividends inthe classical collectiv e risk model. The authors consider the possibility of controlling the risk process by reinsurance as well as by investments. They show that optimal value functions are characterized as either the unique or thesmallest viscosity solution of the associated Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equation they also study the structure of the optimal strategies and show how to find them. The viscosity approach was widely used in control problems related tomathematical finance but until quite recently it was not used to solve control problems related to actuarial mathematical science. This book is designed to familiarize the reader on how to use this approach. The intended audience isgraduate students as well as researchers in this area

Date:2014
Publisher:London : Springer London : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Value- and risk-oriented management is a holistic method of managing businesses. In this book both actuarial methods and methods pertaining to classical internal control and classical risk management are used. Therefore theapproach taken is necessari ly interdisciplinary. Indeed, there is a new dynamically developing field for actuaries as a result of the emphasis now on the measurement of risk. This book provides the required basic knowledge for thissubject from an actuarial perspective. It enables t he reader to implement in practice a risk management system that is based on quantitative methods. With this book, the reader will additionally be able to critically appraise theapplicability and the limits of the methods used in modern risk management. V alue- OrientedRisk Managementof Insurance Companiesfocuses on risk capital, capital allocation, performance measurement and value-oriented management. It also makes a connection to regulatory developments (for example, Solvency II). The reader should hav e a basic knowledge of probability and familiarity with mathematical concepts.

Title:Consensus and Synchronization in Complex Networks [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ljupco Kocarev
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:Synchronization in complex networks is one of the most captivating cooperative phenomena in nature and has been shown to be of fundamental importance in such varied circumstances as the continued existence of species, thefunctioning of heart pacemake r cells, epileptic seizures, neuronal firing in the feline visual cortex and cognitive tasks in humans. E.g. coupled visual and acoustic interactions make fireflies flash, crickets chirp, and an audienceclap in unison. On the other hand, in distributed sy stems and networks, it is often necessary for some or all of the nodes to calculate some function of certain parameters, e.g. sink nodes in sensor networks being tasked withcalculating the average measurement value of all the sensors or multi-agent system s in which all agents are required to coordinate their speed and direction. When all nodes calculate the same function of the initial values in thesystem, they are said to reach consensus. Such concepts - sometimes also called state agreement, rendezvous, and observer design in control theory - have recently received considerable attention in the computational science andengineering communities. Quite generally, consensus formation among a small group of expert models of an objective process is challengin g because the separate models have already been optimized in their own parameter spaces. Themathematical framework for describing synchronization and consensus in natural and technical sciences is similar and the aim of this book is to provide the first comprehensive work in which synchronization and consensus are presentedjointly, thereby allowing the reader to learn about the similarities and differences of the two concepts in both a systematic and application-oriented fashion. The ten chapters have be en carefully selected so as to reflect the currentstate-of-the-art of synchronization and consensus in networked systems in particular two chapters dealing with a novel application of synchronization

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Epitaxial integration of III-V semiconductors on silicon substrates has been desired over decades for high application potential in microelectronics, photovoltaics, and beyond. The performance of optoelectronic devices isstillseverely impaired by cri tical defect mechanisms driven by the crucial polar-on-nonpolar heterointerface. This thesisreports almost lattice-matched growth of thin gallium phosphide films as a viable model system forIII-V/Si(100) interface investigations. The impact of antiphase d isorder on the heteroepitaxial growth surface provides quantitative optical in situ access to one of the most notorious defect mechanisms, even in the vapor phase ambientcommon for compound semiconductor technology. Precise control over the surface struct ure of the Si(100) substrates prior to III-V nucleation prevents the formation of antiphase domains. The hydrogen-based process ambient enables thepreparation of anomalous double-layer step structures on Si(100), highly beneficial for subsequent III-V int egration

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology develops a wide spectrum of nonlinear optimization applications expressed in the GAMS (General Algebraic Modeling System) language. The book is highly self-containedand is designed to pres ent applications in a general form that can be easily understood and quickly updated or modified to represent situations from the real world. The book emphasizes the local solutions of the large-scale, complex,continuous nonlinear optimization application s, and the abundant examples in GAMS are highlighted by those involving ODEs, PDEs, and optimal control. The collection of these examples will be useful for software developers andtesters. Chapter one presents aspects concerning the mathematical modeling process in the context of mathematical modeling technologies based on algebraic-oriented modeling languages. The GAMS technology is introduced in Chapter 2,mainly as a system for formulating and solving a large variety of general optimization models. The bulk of the82 nonlinear optimization applications is given in Chapter 3. This book is primarily intended to serve as a reference forgraduate students and for scientists working in various disciplines of industry/mathematical programming that use optimizat ion methods to model and solve problems. It is also well suited as supplementary material for seminars inoptimization, operations research, and decision making, to name a few

Note:This book is a comprehensive source of the fundamentals, process parameters, instrumental components and applications of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The effect of multiple pulses on material ablation, plasmadynamics and plasma emissi on is presented. A heuristic plasma modeling allows to simulate complex experimental plasma spectra. These methods and findings form the basis for a variety of applications to perform quantitativemulti-element analysis with LIBS. These application potenti als of LIBS have really boosted in the last years ranging from bulk analysis of metallic alloys and non-conducting materials, via spatially resolved analysis and depthprofiling covering measuring objects in all physical states: gaseous, liquid and solid. Dedicated chapters present LIBS investigations for these tasks with special emphasis on the methodical and instrumental concepts as well as theoptimization strategies for a quantitative analysis. Requirements, concepts, design and characteristic features of LIBS instruments are described covering laboratory systems, inspections systems for in-line process control, mobilesystems and remote systems. State-of-the-art industrial applications of LIBS systems are presented demonstrating the benefits of inline p rocess control for improved process guiding and quality assurance purposes

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

Note:Agreement assessment techniques are widely used in examining the acceptability of a new or generic process, methodology and/or formulation in areas of lab performance, instrument/assay validation or method comparisons, statisticalprocess control, goo dness-of-fit, and individual bioequivalence. Successful applications in these situations require a sound understanding of both the underlying theory and methodological advances in handling real-life problems. Thisbook seeks to effectively blend theory and applications while presenting readers with many practical examples. For instance, in the medical device environment, it is important to know if the newly established lab can reproduce theinstrument/assay results from the established but outdating lab. Wh en there is a disagreement, it is important to differentiate the sources of disagreement. In addition to agreement coefficients, accuracy and precision coefficientsare introduced and utilized to characterize these sources. This book will appeal to a broad range of statisticians, researchers, practitioners and students, in areas of biomedical devices, psychology, medical research, and others, inwhich agreement assessment are needed. Many practical illustrative examples will be presented throughout the book in a wide variety of situations for continuous and categorical data

Note:Both refining and extending previous publications by the authors, the material in thismonograph has been class-tested in mathematical institutions throughout the world. Covering some of the key areas of optimal control theory(OCT)a rapidly expanding field that has developed to analyze the optimal behavior of a constrained process over timethe authors use new methods to set out a version of OCTs more refinedmaximum principle designed tosolve the problem of constructing optimal control strategies for u ncertain systems where some parameters are unknown. Referred to as a min-max problem, this type of difficulty occurs frequently when dealing with finite uncertainsets. The text begins with a standalone section that reviews classical optimal control theory ,coveringthe principal topics of themaximum principle and dynamic programming and considering the important sub-problems of linearquadratic optimal control and time optimization. Moving on to examine the tent method in detail, the book thenpresents its co re material, which is a more robust maximum principle for both deterministic and stochastic systems.Theresults obtainedhave applicationsin production planning, reinsurance-dividend management, multi-model sliding mode control, and multi-model differential games.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Due to inherent limitations in human sensing organs, most data collected for various purposes contain uncertainties. Even at the rare occasions when accurate data are available, the truthful predictions derived on the data tend tocreate chaotic conse quences. So, to effectively process and make sense out of available data, we need methods to deal with uncertainty inherently existing inside the data. The intent of this monograph is to explore the fundamentaltheory, methods, and techniques of practical application of grey systems theory, initiated by Professor Deng Julong in 1982. This volume presents most of the recent advances of the theory accomplished by scholars from around the world.From studying this book, the reader will not only acquire an over all knowledge of this new theory but also be able to follow the most current research activities. All examples presented are based on practical applications of the theorywhen urgent real-life problems had to be addressed. Last but not the least, this book concludes with three appendices. The first one compares grey systems theory and interval analysis while revealing the fact that interval analysis isa part of grey mathematics. The second appendix presents an array of different approaches of studying unce rtainties. And, the last appendix shows how uncertainties appear using general systems approach

Note:This is an introductory-level text on stochastic modeling. It is suited for undergraduate students in engineering, operations research, statistics, mathematics, actuarial science, business management, computer science, and publicpolicy. It employs a large number of examples to teach the students to use stochastic models of real-life systems to predict their performance, and use this analysis to design better systems. The book is devoted to the study ofimportant classes of stochastic processes: discre te and continuous time Markov processes, Poisson processes, renewal and regenerative processes, semi-Markov processes, queueing models, and diffusion processes. The book systematicallystudies the short-term and the long-term behavior, cost/reward models, and first passage times. All the material is illustrated with many examples, and case studies. The book provides a concise review of probability in the appendix.The book emphasizes numerical answers to the problems.

A graphical user interface to access the above filescan be downloaded from http://www.unc.edu/~vkulkarn/Maxim/maximgui.zip . The second edition incorporates several c hanges. First its title reflects the changes in content: the chapters on design and control have been removed. The booknow contains several case studies that teach the design principles. Two new chapters have been added. The new chapter on Poisson process es gives more attention to this important class of stochastic processes than the first edition did.The new chapter on Brownian motion reflects its increasing importance as an appropriate model for a variety of real-life situations, including finance.

Title:Nonlinear Power Flow Control Design [electronic resource] : Utilizing Exergy, Entropy, Static and Dynamic Stability, and Lyapunov Analysis

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Nonlinear Powerflow Control Design presents an innovative control system design process motivated by renewable energy electric grid integration problems. The concepts developed result from the convergence of three research anddevelopment goals: to c reate a unifying metric to compare the value of different energy sources coal-burning power plant, wind turbines, solar photovoltaics, etc. to be integrated into the electric power grid and to replacethe typical metric of costs/profit to develop a new nonlinear control tool that applies power flow control, thermodynamics, and complex adaptive systems theory to the energy grid in a consistent way and to apply collectiverobotics theories to the creation of high-performance teams of people and key indivi duals in order to account for human factors in controlling and selling power into a distributed, decentralized electric power grid. All three of thesegoals have important concepts in common: exergy flow, limit cycles, and balance between competing power f lows. In place of the typical zero-sum, stability vs. performance, linear controller design process, the authors propose a uniqueset of criteria to design controllers for a class of nonlinear systems with respect to both performance and stability, and sea mlessly integrating information theoretic concepts. A combination of thermodynamics with Hamiltonian systemsprovides the theoretical foundation which is then realized in a series of connected case studies. It allows the process of control design to be vie wed as a power flow control problem, balancing the power flowing into a system againstthat being dissipated within it and dependent on the power being stored in it an interplay between kinetic and potential energies. Highlights of several of the case stu dies feature current renewable energy problems such as thefuture of electric power grid control, wind turbine load alleviation, and novel control designs for micro-grids that incorpo

Title:Statistical Models for Test Equating, Scaling, and Linking [electronic resource]
Author(s): Alina A Davier
Date:2011
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:The goal of this book is to emphasize the formal statistical features of the practice of equating, linking, and scaling. The book encourages the view and discusses the quality of the equating results from the statisticalperspective (new models, robus tness, fit, testing hypotheses, statistical monitoring) as opposed to placing the focus on the policy and the implications, which although very important, represent a different side of the equatingpractice. The book contributes to establishing equating as a theoretical field, a view that has not been offered often before. The tradition in the practice of equating has been to present the knowledge and skills needed as acraft, which implies that only with years of experience under the guidance of a knowledg eable practitioner could one acquire the required skills. This book challenges this view by indicating how a good equating framework, a soundunderstanding of the assumptions that underlie the psychometric models, and the use of statistical tests and stati stical process control tools can help the practitioner navigate the difficult decisions in choosing the final equatingfunction. This book provides a valuable reference for several groups: (a) statisticians and psychometricians interested in the theory beh ind equating methods, in the use of model-based statistical methods for data smoothing, and in theevaluation of the equating results in applied work (b) practitioners who need to equate tests, including those with these responsibilities in testing compani es, state testing agencies, and school districts and (c) instructors inpsychometric, measurement, and psychology programs. Dr. Alina A. von Davier is a Strategic Advisor and a Director of Special Projects in Research and Development at Educational Testing Service (ETS).

Note:Stochastic Energetics by now commonly designates the emerging field that bridges the gap between stochastic dynamical processes and thermodynamics. Triggered by the vast improvements in spatio-temporal resolution innanotechnology, stochastic energeti cs develops a framework for quantifying individual realizations of a stochastic process on the mesoscopic scale of thermal fluctuations. This is needed to answer such novel questions as: Can one coola drop of water by agitating an immersed nano-particle? How does heat flow if a Brownian particle pulls a polymer chain? Can one measure the free-energy of a system through a single realization of the associated stochastic process?This book will take the reader gradually from the basics to the applications: Pa rt I provides the necessary background from stochastic dynamics (Langevin, master equation), Part II introduces how stochastic energetics describes suchbasic notions as heat and work on the mesoscopic scale, Part III details several applications, such as control and detection processes, as well as free-energy transducers. It aims in particular at researchers and graduate studentsworking in the fields of nanoscience and technology
