Note:Testbeds are gaining increasing relevance in research domains and also in industrial applications. However, very few books devoted to testbeds have been published. To the best of my knowledge no book on this topic has beenpublished. This book is part icularly interesting for the growing community of testbed developers. I believe the book is also very interesting for researchers in robot-WSN cooperation. This book provides detailed description of a systemthat can be considered the first testbed that al lows full peer-to-peer interoperability between heterogeneous robots and ubiquitous systems such as Wireless Sensor Networks, camera networks and pervasive computing systems. The systemarchitecture includes modules that allows full bidirectional communica tion between robots and WSN. One robot can The book describes the current state of the art in development of testbeds integrating Cooperating Object technologies. Itdescribes in detail the testbed specification and design using requirements extracted from surveys among experts in robotics and ubiquitous systems in academia and industry. The book also describes the testbed novel architecture andits hardware and software components. Moreover, it includes details on user support tools to facilitate its use s uch as remote use using a virtual private network and sets of functionalities of interest for members from the robotics,WSN and robot-WSN communities. Finally, the book illustrates its capabilities and potentialities describing the implementation of some of the experiments that have been performed.

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:The book is composed of two main parts: mathematical background and queueing systems with applications. The mathematical background is a self containing introduction to the stochastic processes of the later studies queueingsystems. It starts with a q uick introduction to probability theory and stochastic processes and continues with chapters on Markov chains and regenerative processes. More recent advances of queueing systems are based on phase typedistributions, Markov arrival processes and quasy bir th death processes, which are introduced in the last chapter of the first part. The second part is devoted to queueing models and their applications. After the introduction of thebasic Markovian (from M/M/1 to M/M/1//N) and non-Markovian (M/G/1, G/M/1) qu eueing systems, a chapter presents the analysis of queues with phase type distributions, Markov arrival processes (from PH/M/1 to MAP/PH/1/K). The nextchapter presents the classical queueing network results and the rest of this part is devoted to the appl ication examples. There are queueing models for bandwidth charing with different traffic classes, slotted multiplexers, ATMswitches, media access protocols like Aloha and IEEE 802.11b, priority systems and retrial systems. An appendix supplements the tech nical content with Laplace and z transformation rules, Bessel functions and a list of notations. Thebook contains examples and exercises throughout and could be used for graduate students in engineering, mathematics and sciences

Note:At the intersection of mathematics, engineering, and computer science sits the thriving field of compressive sensing. Based on the premise that data acquisition and compression can be performed simultaneously, compressive sensingfinds applications in imaging, signal processing, and many other domains. In the areas of applied mathematics, electrical engineering, and theoretical computer science, an explosion of research activity has already followed thetheoretical results that highlighted the efficien cy of the basic principles. The elegant ideas behind these principles are also of independent interest to pure mathematicians. A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing gives adetailed account of the core theory upon which the field is build. Key features include: The first textbook completely devoted to the topic of compressive sensing Comprehensive treatment of thesubject, including background material from probability theory, detailed proofs of the main theorems, and an outline of possible a pplications Numerous exercises designed to help students understand the material An extensive bibliography with over 500 references that guide researchers through the literature With only moderate prerequisites, A Mathematical Introduction to Compressive Sensing is an excellent textbook forgraduate courses in mathematics, engineering, and computer science. It also serves as a reliable resource for practitioners and researchers in these disciplines who want to acquire a careful understanding of the subjec t

Title:Isotope-Based Quantum Information [electronic resource]

Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The present book provides to the main ideas and techniques of the rapid progressing field of quantum information and quantum computation using isotope - mixed materials. It starts with an introduction to the isotope physics andthen describes of the i sotope - based quantum information and quantum computation. The ability to manipulate and control electron and/or nucleus spin in semiconductor devices provides a new route to expand the capabilities of inorganicsemiconductor-based electronics and to desi gn innovative devices with potential application in quantum computing. One of the major challenges towards these objectives is to develop semiconductor-based systems and architectures in whichthe spatial distribution of spins and their properties can be c ontrolled. For instance, to eliminate electron spin decoherence resulting from hyperfine interaction due to nuclear spin background, isotopically controlled devices areneeded (i.e., nuclear spin-depleted). In other emerging concepts, the control of the sp atial distribution of isotopes with nuclear spins is a prerequisite to implement the quantum bits (or qbits). Therefore, stable semiconductorisotopes are important elements in the development of solid-state quantum information. There are not only differen t algorithms of quantum computation discussed but also the different models of quantum computers are presented. Withnumerous illustrations this small book is of great interest for undergraduate students taking courses in mesoscopic physics or nanoelectron ics as well as quantum information, and academic and industrial researches working in thisfield

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: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

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

Note:For over a decade, complex networks have steadily grown as an important tool across abroad array of academic disciplines, with applications ranging from physics to social media.A tightly organizedcollectionofcarefully-selected papers on the subject, Towards an Information Theory of Complex Networks: Statistical Methods and Applications presents theoretical and practical results about information-theoretic and statisticalmodels of complex networks in the natural sciences and humanities.The book'smajor goal is to advocate and promote a combination of graph-theoretic, information-theoretic, and statistical methods as a way to better understand andcharacterize real-world networks. This volume is the first to present a self-contained, comprehensive overvi ew of information-theoretic modelsof complex networks with an emphasis on applications. It begins with four chaptersdeveloping the most significant formal-theoretical issues of network modeling,butthe majority of the book is devoted tocombining theoretica l results with an empirical analysis of real networks. Specific topics include: chemicalgraph theory ecosystem interaction dynamics social ontologies language networks software systems Thiswork marks a first step toward establishing advanced statistical i nformation theory as a unified theoretical basis of complexnetworksfor allscientific disciplines. As such, itcan serve asa valuable resource foradiverse audience of advanced students and professional scientists.It is primarilyintendedas a reference for re search, but couldalso be a useful supplemental graduate text in courses related to information science, graph theory, machine learning, and computational biology, among others

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

Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The science of graphs and networks has become by now a well-established tool for modelling and analyzing a variety of systems with a large number of interacting components. Starting from the physical sciences, applications havespread rapidly to the n atural and social sciences, as well as to economics, and are now further extended, in this volume, to the concept of innovations, viewed broadly. In an abstract, systems-theoretical approach, innovation can beunderstood as a critical event which destabili zes the current state of the system, and results in a new process of self-organization leading to a new stable state. The contributions to this anthology address different aspects of therelationship between innovation and networks. The various chapters in corporate approaches in evolutionary economics, agent-based modeling, social network analysis and econophysics and explore the epistemic tension between insights intoeconomics and society-related processes, and the insights into new forms of complex dynam ics

Note:The transportation problem can be formalized as the problem of finding the optimal way to transport a given measure into another with the same mass. In contrast to the Monge-Kantorovitch problem, recent approaches model thebranched structure of such supply networks as minima of an energy functional whose essential feature is to favour wide roads. Such a branched structure is observable in ground transportation networks, in draining and irrigationsystems, in electrical power supply systems and in natu ral counterparts such as blood vessels or the branches of trees. These lectures provide mathematical proof of several existence, structure and regularity properties empiricallyobserved in transportation networks. The link with previous discrete physical m odels of irrigation and erosion models in geomorphology and with discrete telecommunication and transportation models is discussed. It will bemathematically proven that the majority fit in the simple model sketched in this volume

Title:Statistical Analysis of Network Data [electronic resource] : Methods and Models
Author(s): Eric D Kolaczyk
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:In the past decade, the study of networks has increased dramatically. Researchers from across the sciencesincluding biology and bioinformatics, computer science, economics, engineering, mathematics, physics, sociology, andstatisticsare more and more involved with the collection and statistical analysis of network-indexed data. As a result, statistical methods and models are being developed in this area at a furious pace, with contributions comingfrom a wide spectrum of disciplines. This book provides an up-to-date treatment of the foundations common to the statistical analysis of network data across the disciplines. The material is organized according to a statisticaltaxonomy, although the presentation entails a conscious balance of concepts versus m athematics. In addition, the examplesincluding extended cases studiesare drawn widely from the literature. This book should be of substantialinterest both to statisticians and to anyone else working in the area of network science. The coverage of topics i n this book is broad, but unfolds in a systematic manner, moving from descriptive (or exploratory) methods, tosampling, to modeling and inference. Specific topics include network mapping, characterization of network structure, network sampling, and the mo deling, inference, and prediction of networks, network processes, and network flows. Thisbook is the first such resource to present material on all of these core topics in one place. Eric Kolaczyk is a professor of statistics, and Director of the Program in Statistics, in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics atBoston University, where he also is an affiliated faculty member in the Center for Biodynamics, the Program in Bioinformatics, and the Division of Systems Engineering. His publications on ne twork-based topics include work ranging fromthe detection of anomalous traffic patterns in computer networks to the prediction of biological function in networks of interacting protein

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The origins of Graph Theory date back to Euler (1736) with the solution of the celebrated 'Koenigsberg Bridges Problem' and to Hamilton with the famous 'Trip around the World' game (1859), stating for the first time a problemwhich, in its most recent version the 'Traveling Salesman Problem' -, is still the subject of active research. Yet, it has been during the last fifty years or sowith the rise of the electronic computersthat Graph theory hasbecome an indispensable discipline in terms of the numbe r and importance of its applications across the Applied Sciences. Graph theory has been especially central to Theoretical and Algorithmic Computer Science, and Automatic Control,Systems Optimization, Economy and Operations Research, Data Analysis in the E ngineering Sciences. Close connections between graphs and algebraic structures have been widely used in the analysis and implementation of efficientalgorithms for many problems, for example: transportation network optimization, telecommunication network o ptimization and planning, optimization in scheduling and production systems, etc. The primary objectives of GRAPHS, DIODS ANDSEMIRINGS: New Models and Algorithms are to emphasize the deep relations existing between the semiring and diod structures with gr aphs and their combinatorial properties, while demonstrating the modeling and problem-solvingcapability and flexibility of these structures. In addition the book provides an extensive overview of the mathematical properties employed by nonclassical algebr aic structures, which either extend usual algebra (i.e., semirings),or correspond to a new branch of algebra (i.e., diods), apart from the classical structures of groups, rings, and fields

Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is devoted to the study and optimization of spatiotemporal stochastic processes, that is, processes which develop simultaneously in space and time under random influences. These processes are seen to occur almosteverywhere when studying the global behavior of complex systems, including physical and technical systems, population dynamics, neural networks, computer and telecommunication networks, complex production networks, flexible manufacturing systems, logistic networks and transpor tation systems, environmental engineering, climate modelling and prediction, earth surface models. Classical stochastic dynamic optimization forms theframework of the book. Taken as a whole, the project undertaken in the book is to establish optimality or near-optimality for Markovian policies in the control of spatiotemporal Markovian processes. The authors apply this generalprinciple to different frameworks of Markovian systems and processes. Depending on the structure of the systems and the surround ings of the model classes the authors arrive at different levels of simplicity for the policy classes whichencompass optimal or nearly optimal policies. A set of examples accompanies the theoretical findings, and these examples should demonstrate some imp ortant application areas for the theorems discussed. Audience This book is intended forexperts in applied mathematics, cybernetics, and in the theory of optimal control

Title:Soliton Management in Periodic Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Boris A Malomed
Date:2006
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:During the past ten years, there has been intensive development in theoretical and experimental research of solitons in periodic media. This book provides a unique and informative account of the state-of-the-art in the field. Thevolume opens with a r eview of the existence of robust solitary pulses in systems built as a periodic concatenation of very different elements. Among the most famous examples of this type of systems are the dispersion management infiber-optic telecommunication links, and (more recently) photonic crystals. A number of other systems belonging to the same broad class of spatially periodic strongly inhomogeneous media (such as the split-step and tandem models) haverecently been identified in nonlinear optics, and transmission of s olitary pulses in them was investigated in detail. Similar soliton dynamics occurs in temporal-domain counterparts of such systems, where they are subject to strongtime-periodic modulation (for instance, the Feshbach-resonance management in Bose-Einstein condensates). Basis results obtained for all these systems are reviewed in the book. This timely work will serve as a useful resource for thesoliton community

Title:Phase-Modulated Optical Communication Systems [electronic resource]
Author(s): Keang-Po Ho
Date:2005
Publisher:Boston, MA : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Fiber-optic communication systems have revolutionized our telecommunication infrastructures currently, almost all telephone land-line, cellular, and internet communications must travel via some form of optical fibers. Inthese transmission systems, n either the phase nor frequency of the optical signal carries information only the intensity of the signal is used. To transmit more information in a single optical carrier, the phase of the opticalcarrier must be explored. As a result, there is renewed i nterest in phase-modulated optical communications, mainly in direct-detection DPSK signals for long-haul optical communication systems. When optical amplifiers are used tomaintain certain signal level among the fiber link, the system is limited by amplifi er noises and fiber nonlinearities. Phase-Modulated Optical Communication Systems surveys this newly popular area, covering the following topics: Thetransmitter and receiver for phase-modulated coherent lightwave systems Method for performance analysis of phase-modulated optical signals Direct-detection DPSK signal with fiber nonlinearities, degraded by nonlinear phase noise andintrachannel effects Wavelength-division-multiplexed direct-detection DPSK signals Multi-level phase-modulated optical signals, s uch as the four-phase DQPSK signal Graduate students, professional engineers, and researchers will allbenefit from this updated treatment of an important topic in the optical communications field
