Ornella Robutti
Nathalie Sinclair
Date:2014
Publisher:Dordrecht : Springer Netherlands : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This volume addresses the key issue of the initial education and lifelong professional learning of teachers of mathematics to enable them to realize the affordances of educational technology for mathematics. With invitedcontributions from leading sch olars in the field, this volume contains a blend of research articles and descriptive texts. In the opening chapter John Mason invites the reader to engage in a number of mathematics tasks that highlightimportant features of technology-mediated mathematic al activity. This is followed by three main sections: An overview of current practices in teachers use of digital technologies in the classroom and explorations of thepossibilities for developing more effective practices drawing on a range of research per spectives (including grounded theory, enactivism and Valsiners zone theory). Aset of chapters that share many common constructs (such asinstrumental orchestration, instrumental distance and double instrumental genesis) and research settings that have emer ged from the French research community, but have also been taken up by other colleagues. Meta-level considerationsof research in the domain by contrasting different approaches and proposing connecting or uniting elements

Title:The Welsh Language in the Digital Age [electronic resource]
Author(s): Georg Rehm
Hans Uszkoreit
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This white paper is part of a series that promotes knowledge about language technology and its potential. It addresses educators, journalists, politicians, language communities and others. The availability and use of languagetechnology in Europe vari es between languages. Consequently, the actions that are required to further support research and development of language technologies also differ for each language. The required actions depend on many factors,such as the complexity of a given language an d the size of its community. META-NET, a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission, has conducted an analysis of current language resources and technologies. This analysisfocused on the 23 official European languages as well as other importa nt national and regional languages in Europe. The results of this analysis suggest that there are many significant research gaps for each language. A more detailedexpert analysis and assessment of the current situation will help maximise the impact of add itional research and minimize any risks. META-NET consists of 54 research centres from 33 countries that are working with stakeholders fromcommercial businesses, government agencies, industry, research organisations, software companies, technology provide rs and European universities. Together, they are creating a common technology vision while developing a strategicresearch agenda that shows how language technology applications can address any research gaps by 2020

Title:Dressed Photons [electronic resource] : Concepts of LightMatter Fusion Technology
Author(s): Motoichi Ohtsu
Date:2014
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Authored by the developer of dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics, this book outlines concepts of the subject using a novel theoretical framework that differs from conventional wave optics. It provides aquantum theoretical d escription of optical near fields and related problems that puts matter excitation such as electronic and vibrational ones on an equal footing with photons. By this description, optical near fields are interpretedas quasi-particles and named dressed photo ns which carry the material excitation energy in a nanometric space. The author then explores novel nanophotonic devices, fabrications, and energy conversion based on the theoretical picture ofdressed photons. Further, this book looks at how the assembly of nanophotonic devices produces information and communication systems. Dressed photon science and technology is on its way to revolutionizing various applications indevices, fabrications, and systems. Promoting further exploration in the field, this book presents physically intuitive concepts, theories, and technical details for students, engineers, and scientists engaged in research anddevelopment in dressed photon science and technology as well as nanophotonics

Dan Nettleton
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) is the latest high throughput technology to revolutionize genomic research. NGS generates massive genomic datasets that play a key role in the big data phenomenon that surrounds us today. Toextract signals from high-d imensional NGS data and make valid statistical inferences and predictions, novel data analytic and statistical techniques are needed. This book contains 20 chapters written by prominent statisticians workingwith NGS data.

Title:Geomathematics: Theoretical Foundations, Applications and Future Developments [electronic resource]
Author(s): Frits Agterberg
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a wealth of geomathematical case history studies performed by the author during his career at the Ministry of Natural Resources Canada, Geological Survey of Canada (NRCan-GSC). Several of the techniques newlydeveloped by the author and colleagues that are described in this book have become widely adopted, not only for further research by geomathematical colleagues, but by government organizations and industry worldwide. These includeWeights-of-Evidence modelling, mineral resource e stimation technology, trend surface analysis, automatic stratigraphic correlation and nonlinear geochemical exploration methods. The author has developed maximum likelihood methodologyand spline-fitting techniques for the construction of the international numerical geologic timescale. He has introduced the application of new theory of fractals and multifractals in the geostatistical evaluation of regional mineralresources and ore reserves and to study the spatial distribution of metals in rocks. The book also contains sections deemed important by the author but that have not been widely adopted because they require further research. Theseinclude the geometry of preferred orientations of contours and edge effects on maps, time series analysis of Quaternary retreating ice sheet related sedimentary data, estimation of first and last appearances of fossil taxa fromfrequency distributions of their observed first and last occurrences, tectonic reactivation along pre-existing schistosity planes in fold belts, us e of the grouped jackknife method for bias reduction in geometrical extrapolations, andnew applications of the theory of permanent, volume-independent frequency distributions

Title:Alien Encounter [electronic resource] : A Scientific Novel
Author(s): Dirk Schulze-Makuch
Date:2014
Edition:2nd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:It has been nearly 100 years since the Apollo moon landings, when Jack and Vladimir, two astronauts on a mission to Venus, discover a mysterious void related to indigenous life on the planet. Subsequently more voids are detectedon Earth, Mars, Titan, and, quite ominously, inside a planetoid emerging from the Kuiper belt. Jack is sent to investigate the voids in the Solar System and intercept the planetoid - which, as becomes increasingly clear, is inhabitedby alien life forms. Jack and his crew will have little time to understand their alien biochemistry, abilities, behavior patterns, resilience, and technology, but also how these life forms relate to the voids. Humankind's firstencounter with these exotic life forms couldn't be more fateful, becomin g a race against time to save life on Earth and to reveal the true nature of the voids, which seem to be intrinsically related to life and the universe itself. Inthis novel, the author combines many topics related to state-of-the-art research in the field of astrobiology with fictional elements to produce a thrilling page turner. This new version significantly develops the astrobiologicaldenouement of the plot and features an extensive non-technical appendix where the underlying science is presented and d iscussed. From the reviews of the first edition (Voids of Eternity: Alien Encounter) Here's a thrilling yarn inthe best hard SF tradition of Asimov, James Hogan, and Ben Bova, written by a scientist who knows all about the possibilities of life in the so lar system and beyond. Dirk Schulze-Makuch weaves into his book all the astrobiologicalthemes he's worked on in recent years -- speculation about creatures in the atmosphere of Venus and on and under the surface of Mars and Titan -- together with some wel l-informed Eastern philosophy and a cracking good space battle. Agreat first novel from a rising talent. Highly recommended. David Darling, on amazon.com, 2009 The research interests of Dr. Schulz

Title:Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides [electronic resource]
Author(s): Xingcun Colin Tong Ph.D
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This book provides a comprehensive introduction to integrated optical waveguides for information technology and data communications. Integrated coverage ranges from advanced materials, fabrication, and characterization techniquesto guidelines for des ign and simulation. A concluding chapter offers perspectives on likely future trends and challenges. The dramatic scaling down of feature sizes has driven exponential improvements in semiconductor productivity andperformance in the past several decades. H owever, with the potential of gigascale integration, size reduction is approaching a physical limitation due to the negative impact on resistance and inductance of metal interconnects withcurrent copper-trace based technology. Integrated optics provides a potentially lower-cost, higher performance alternative to electronics in optical communication systems. Optical interconnects, in which light can be generated, guided,modulated, amplified, and detected, can provide greater bandwidth, lower power consumpt ion, decreased interconnect delays, resistance to electromagnetic interference, and reduced crosstalk when integrated into standard electroniccircuits. Integrated waveguide optics represents a truly multidisciplinary field of science and engineering, with continued growth requiring new developments in modeling, further advances in materials science, and innovations inintegration platforms. In addition, the processing and fabrication of these new devices must be optimized in conjunction with the developmen t of accurate and precise characterization and testing methods. Students and professionals inmaterials science and engineering will find Advanced Materials for Integrated Optical Waveguides to be an invaluable reference for meeting these research and deve lopment goals. Suitable as an in-depth introduction for students andtraining groups Serves as a comprehensive, one-stop reference for researchers and other materials science and engineering professional

Title:Debye Screening Length [electronic resource] : Effects of Nanostructured Materials
Author(s): Kamakhya Prasad Ghatak
Sitangshu Bhattacharya
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph solely investigates the Debye Screening Length (DSL) in semiconductors and their nano-structures. The materials considered are quantized structures of non-linear optical, III-V, II-VI, Ge, Te, Platinum Antimonide,stressed materials, Bi smuth, GaP, Gallium Antimonide, II-V and Bismuth Telluride respectively. The DSL in opto-electronic materials and their quantum confined counterparts is studied in the presence of strong light waves and intenseelectric fields on the basis of newly formula ted electron dispersion laws that control the studies of such quantum effect devices. The suggestions for the experimental determination of 2D and 3D DSL and the importance of measurement ofband gap in optoelectronic materials under intense built-in elect ric field in nano devices and strong external photo excitation (for measuring photon induced physical properties) have also been discussed in this context. The influenceof crossed electric and quantizing magnetic fields on the DSL and the DSL in heavily d oped semiconductors and their nanostructures has been investigated. This monograph contains 150 open research problems which form the integral partof the text and are useful for both PhD students and researchers in the fields of solid-state sciences, mate rials science, nano-science and technology and allied fields in addition to the graduate courses in modern semiconductornanostructures

Title:Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam [electronic resource] : Research, Teaching, Life
Author(s): Alexander Pechenkin
Date:2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This biography of the famous Soviet physicist Leonid Isaakovich Mandelstam (1889-1944), who became a Professor at Moscow State University in 1925, describes his contributions to both physics and technology, as well as discussingthe scientific communi ty which formed around him, usually called the Mandelstam school. Mandelstams life story is thereby placed in its proper cultural context. The following more general issues are taken under consideration: theimpact of German scientific culture on Russian s cience the problems and fates of Russian intellectuals during the revolutionary and post-revolutionary years the formation of the Soviet Academy of Sciences and transformation of thesystem of higher education in the USSR during the 1920's and 1930's.The a uthor shows that Mandelstams fundamental writings and his lectures notes allow to reconstruct his philosophy of science and his approach to the social andethical functions of science and science education. That reconstruction is enhanced through extensive use of hitherto unpublished archival material as well as the transcripts of personal interviews conducted by the author

Title:Small Satellites and Their Regulation [electronic resource]
Author(s): Ram S Jakhu
Joseph N Pelton
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Since the launch of UoSat-1 of the University of Surrey (United Kingdom) in 1981, small satellites proved regularly to be useful, beneficial, and cost-effective tools. Typical tasks cover education and workforce development,technology demonstration, verification and validation, scientific and engineering research as well as commercial applications. Today the launch masses range over almost three orders of magnitude starting at less than a kilogram up to afew hundred kilograms, with budgets of less th an US$ 100.00 and up to millions within very short timeframes of sometimes less than two years. Therefore each category of small satellites provides specific challenges in design,development and operations. Small satellites offer great potentials to gain responsive, low-cost access to space within a short timeframe for institutions, companies, regions and countries beyond the traditional big players in thespace arena. For these reasons (particularly the low cost of construction, launch and operation), sma ll (micro, cube or nano) satellites are being preferred by students and educational institutions, amateur radio operators, small anddeveloping countries, international aid agencies and most recently by defense agencies and satellite operators who are exam ining deployment of constellation clusters instead of conventional application satellites. In some cases thesenew capabilities are being deployed as hosted payloads on larger satellites. The advent of hosted payloads as a significant part of the satellite industry represents a key new topic that this book will address. The number of smallsatellitesof various types--is increasing fast as their benefits are being realized. This short and unique interdisciplinary book, covering both technical and regulatory aspects, examines all the different types of applications andreasons for small as well as exploring technical and operational innovations that are being introduced. Italso examinesthe new technic

Author(s): Larry A DeWerd
Michael Kissick
Date:2014
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Acomprehensive overview of all types of phantoms used in medical imaging, therapy, nuclear medicine and health physics is provided in this title. For ionizing radiation, dosimetry with respect to issues of material composition,shape, and motion/posit ion effects are all highlighted. For medical imaging, each type of technology will need specific materials and designs, and the physics and indications will be explored for each type. Health physics phantoms areconcerned with some of the same issues such as material heterogeneity, but also unique issues such as organ-specific radiation dose from sources distributed in other organs. Though some of the information enclosed is found in othersources, divided especially along the three categories of imaging, t herapy, and health physics, many medical physicists as well as professionals need to bridge these three catagories. Readers will be able to use this book to select theappropriate phantom from a vendor at a clinic, to learn from as a student, to choose mat erials for custom phantom design, to design dynamic features, and as a reference for a variety of applications

Note:The concept of 'shape' is at the heart of image processing and computer vision, yet researchers still have some way to go to replicate the human brain's ability to extrapolate meaning from the most basic of outlines. This volumereflects the advances of the last decade, which have also opened up tough new challenges in image processing. Today's applications require flexible models as well as efficient, mathematically justified algorithms that allow dataprocessing within an acceptable timeframe. Examin ing important topics in continuous-scale and discrete modeling, as well as in modern algorithms, the book is the product of a key seminar focused on innovations in the field. It is athorough introduction to the latest technology, especially given the tuto rial style of a number of chapters. It also succeeds in identifying promising avenues for future research. The topics covered include mathematical morphology,skeletonization, statistical shape modeling, continuous-scale shape models such as partial differ ential equations and the theory of discrete shape descriptors. Some authors highlight new areas of enquiry such as partite skeletons,multi-component shapes, deformable shape models, and the use of distance fields. Combining the latest theoretical analysis with cutting-edge applications, this book will attract both academics and engineers

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

Note:This book presents the current state of knowledge in the field of terahertz spectroscopy, providing a comprehensive source of information for beginners and experienced researchers alike whose interests lie in this area. Thebook aims to explain the fu ndamental physics that underpins terahertz technology and to describe its key applications. Highlights of scientific research in the field of terahertz science are also outlined in some chapters, providingan overview as well as giving an insight into futu re directions for research. Over the past decade terahertz spectroscopy has developed into one of the most rapidly growing areas of its kind, gaining an important impact across a widerange of scientific disciplines. Due to substantial advances in femtosec ond laser technology, terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) has established itself as the dominant spectroscopic technique for experimental scientistsinterested in measurements at this frequency range. In solids and liquids THz radiation is in reso nance with both phonon modes and hydrogen bonding modes, which makes it an ideal tool to study the interaction between molecules in aunique way thus opening a wealth of opportunities for research in physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and pharm aceuticals. This book provides easy access to scientists, engineers and students who want to understand thetheory and applications of modern THz spectroscopy.

Note:The sheer computing power of modern information technology is changing the face of research not just in science, technology and mathematics, but in humanities and cultural studies too. Recent decades have seen a major shift bothin attitudes and deplo yment of computers, which are now vital and highly effective tools in disciplines where they were once viewed as elaborate typewriters. This revealing volume details the vast array of computing applications thatresearchers in the humanities now have recou rse to, including the dissemination of scholarly information through virtual co-laboratories, data retrieval, and the modeling of complex processes that contribute to our natural andcultural heritage. One key area covered in this book is the versatility o f computers in presenting images and graphics, which is transforming the analysis of data sets and archaeological reconstructions alike. The papers publishedhere are grouped into three broad categories that cover mathematical and computational methods, r esearch developments in information systems, and a detailed portrayal of ongoing work on documenting, restoring and presenting culturalmonuments including the temples in Pompeii and the Banteay Chhmar temples of the Angkorian period in present-day Cambodi a. Originally presented at a research workshop in Heidelberg, Germany, they reflect the rapidly developing identityof computational humanities as an interdisciplinary field in its own right, as well as demonstrating the breadth of perspectives in this you ng and vibrant research area

Note:This book reviews a range of quantum phenomena in novel nanoscale transistors called FinFETs, including quantized conductance of 1D transport, single electron effect, tunneling transport, etc. The goal is to create a fundamentalbridge between quantum FinFET and nanotechnology to stimulate readers' interest in developing new types of semiconductor technology. Although the rapid development of micro-nano fabrication is driving the MOSFET downscaling trend thatis evolving from planar channel to nonplana r FinFET, silicon-based CMOS technology is expected to face fundamental limits in thenear future. Therefore, new types of nanoscale devices are being investigated aggressively to takeadvantage of the quantum effect in carrier transport. The quantum confin ement effect of FinFET at room temperatures was reported following the breakthrough to sub-10nm scale technology in silicon nanowires. With chapters written byleading scientists throughout the world, Toward Quantum FinFET provides a comprehensive introduc tion to the field as well as a platform for knowledge sharing and dissemination of the latest advances. As a roadmap to guide furtherresearch in an area of increasing importance for the future development of materials science, nanofabrication technology, and nano-electronic devices, the book can be recommended for Physics, Electrical Engineering, and MaterialsScience departments, and as a reference on micro-nano electronic science and device design. Offers comprehensive coverage of novel nanoscale transis tors with quantum confinement effect Provides the keys to understanding the emergingarea of the quantum FinFET Written by leading experts in each research area Describes a key enabling technology for research and development of nanofabrication and nanoele ctronic devices

Note:Advances in science and technology are driven by the development of rigorous mathematical foundations for the study of both theoretical and experimental models.With certain methodological variations, this type of study alwayscomes down to the applica tion of analytic or computational integration procedures, making such tools indispensible. With a wealth of cutting-edge research in the field, Integral Methods in Science and Engineering: Progress in Numericaland Analytic Techniquesprovides a detailed po rtrait of both the construction of theoretical integral techniques and their application to specific problems in science and engineering. The chapters in this volume are based on talksgiven by well-known researchers at the Twelfth International Conferenc e on Integral Methods in Science and Engineering, July 2327, 2012, in Porto Alegre, Brazil. They address a broad range of topics, from problems of existence anduniqueness for singular integral equations on domain boundaries to numerical integration via fi nite and boundary elements, conservation laws, hybrid methods, and other quadrature-related approaches. The contributing authors bringtheir expertise to bear on a number of topical problems that have to date resisted solution, thereby offering help and gu idance to fellow professionals worldwide. Integral Methods in Science and Engineering:Progress in Numerical and Analytic Techniques will be a valuable resource forresearchers in applied mathematics, physics, and mechanical and electrical engineering, forg raduate students in these disciplines, and for various otherprofessionals who use integration as an essential tool in their work

Title:Nonlinear Optimization Applications Using the GAMS Technology [electronic resource]
Author(s): Neculai Andrei
Date:2013
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
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:Despite significant achievements, the discipline of supply chain management is still unable to satisfactorily handle many practical real-world challenges. The authors of Networks Against Time claim that a unified supply chainnetwork analytics framewo rk is needed which should be able to handle optimization and competitive behavior while also maintain relevance to many industrial sectors in which perishable products are prominent, from healthcare to food andfrom fashion apparel to technology. This Brie f provides a wide range of critical supply chain problems which are modeled as generalized networks. Guidelines are provided to determine the arc multipliers that capture perish ability ofthe product whether food, radioisotopes, or even highly perishable blood in healthcare over space and time. Through case studies the authors portray the application of the models and algorithms to real-world sectors which illustratethe power of the framework in practice. The models and algorithms are fully described alon g with the input and output data in the case studies. This level of transparency is useful pedagogically as well as for future research and forapplications in practice. Researchers and practitioners in mathematics, in operations research and management sc ience, operations management, as well as in economics and computer science will find this book useful to gain a broaderappreciation of the richness of network supply chain structures, processes, and applications. This book can also be used by advanced und ergraduate students and graduate students in the disciplines noted above to familiarize themselveswith methodologies and supply chain network models and applications
