The presence of uncertainty in a system description has always been a critical issue in control. The main objective of Randomized Algorithms for Analysis and Control of Uncertain Systems, with Applications (Second Edition) is to introduce the reader to the fundamentals of probabilistic methods in the analysis and design of systems subject to deterministic and stochastic uncertainty. The approach propounded by this text guarantees a reduction in the computational complexity of classical control algorithms and in the conservativeness of standard robust control techniques. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to reflect recent research and new applications with chapters on statistical learning theory, sequential methods for control and the scenario approach being completely rewritten. Features: · self-contained treatment explaining Monte Carlo and Las Vegas randomized algorithms from their genesis in the principles of probability theory to their use for system analysis; · development of a novel paradigm for (convex and nonconvex) controller synthesis in the presence of uncertainty and in the context of randomized algorithms; · comprehensive treatment of multivariate sample generation techniques, including consideration of the difficulties involved in obtaining identically and independently distributed samples; · applications of randomized algorithms in various endeavours, such as PageRank computation for the Google Web search engine, unmanned aerial vehicle design (both new in the second edition), congestion control of high-speed communications networks and stability of quantized sampled-data systems. Randomized Algorithms for Analysis and Control of Uncertain Systems (second edition) is certain to interest academic researchers and graduate control students working in probabilistic, robust or optimal control methods and control engineers dealing with system uncertainties. The present book is a very timely contribution to the literature. I have no hesitation in asserting that it will remain a widely cited reference work for many years. M. Vidyasagar

Explicit and Implicit Parallel Functional Progr...
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book investigates the relation between the two conflicting goals of explicitness and abstraction, for the implementation of parallel functional languages and skeletons. The first part describes the implementation of the parallel Haskell extension Eden in layers of increasing abstraction. The author derives a minimal monadic sublanguage for elementary parallel coordination, and discusses a generic runtime system for parallel computations, major parts of which are Haskell. The second main part concentrates on parallel skeletons - abstract algorithmic patterns with parallel implementation. Exemplarily, the author discusses implementations for data parallel skeletons (map, map-reduce, Google-MapReduce), and for topology skeletons, which describe interaction and communication in regularly structured process networks. The book is an in-depth study of parallel functional programming, both for researchers interested in the first part, and for professionals seeking new impulses for practical development of parallel programs. It shows that functional languages provide a suitable abstraction level to reason about parallel programming and to circumvent its complexity.

SMADL - The Social Machines Architecture Descri...
71,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The term 'Social Machine' (SM) has been commonly used as a synonym for what is known as the programmable web or web 3.0, where several web-based systems make their APIs publicly available and establish connections with each other under several and complex restrictions. Some definitions of a Social Machine have already been provided and they basically support the notion of relationships between distributed entities. The type of relationship molds which services would be provided or required by each machine, and under which constraints. In order to deal with the complexity of this emerging web, we present a language that can describe networks of Social Machines, named SMADL - the Social Machine Architecture Description Language. In few words, SMADL is as a relationship-driven language which can be used to describe the interactions between any number of machines in a multitude of ways, as a means to represent real machines interacting in the real web, such as, Twitter running on top of Amazon AWS or mash-ups built upon Google Maps, and obviously, as a means to represent interactions with other social machines too.

Integrated quantum photonics show monolithic waveguide chips to be a promising platform for realizing the next generation quantum optical circuits. This book proposes the implementation of Quantum PageRank, the quantum version of famous Google PageRank, on a photonic waveguide lattice. The book uses the paradigm of Quantum Stochastic Walk for the Quantum PageRank problem. The quantum version of Facebook Graph Search is modeled as a multidimensional quantum search used in generating Quantum PageRank. The book uses the metric Kolmogorov Complexity to detect the eavesdropping in BB84 Quantum Cryptography protocol. The Kolmogorov Complexity is used as an added layer of security on the quantum channel.

Obfuscated TCP
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Obfuscated TCP is a transport layer protocol which implements opportunistic encryption over TCP. It is designed to prevent mass wiretapping and malicious corruption of TCP traffic on the internet, with lower implementation cost and complexity than TLS. ObsTCP was created by Adam Langley, a former Maths and Computing student and systems administrator at Imperial College London, currently an employee of Google in California. The concept of obfuscating TCP communications using opportunistic encryption evolved through several iterations. The experimental iterations of ObsTCP used TCP options in 'SYN' packets to advertise support for ObsTCP, the server responding with a public key in the 'SYNACK'. An IETF draft protocol was first published in July 2008. Packets were encrypted with Salsa20/8, and signed packets with MD5 checksums.

The Responsibilities of Online Service Providers
136,88 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume focuses on the responsibilities of online service providers (OSPs) in contemporary societies. It examines the complexity and global dimensions of the rapidly evolving and serious challenges posed by the exponential development of Internet services and resources. It looks at the major actors - such as Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Yahoo! - and their significant influence on the informational environment and users' interactions within it, as well as the responsibilities and liabilities such influence entails. It discusses the position of OSPs as information gatekeepers and how they have gone from offering connecting and information-sharing services to paying members to providing open, free infrastructure and applications that facilitate digital expression and the communication of information. The book seeks consensus on the principles that should shape OSPs' responsibilities and practices, taking into account business ethics and policies. Finally, it discusses the rights of users and international regulations that are in place or currently lacking.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book presents a review of traditional context-aware computing research, identifies its limitations in developing social context-aware pervasive systems, and introduces a new technology framework to address these limitations. Thus, this book provides a good reference for developments in context-aware computing and pervasive social computing. It examines the emerging area of pervasive social computing, which is a novel collective paradigm derived from pervasive computing, social media, social networking, social signal processing and multimodal human-computer interaction. This book offers a novel approach to model, represent, reason about and manage different types of social context. It shows how users' social context information can be acquired from different online social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Calendar. It further presents the use of social context information in developing innovative smart mobile applications to assist users in their daily life. The mix of both theoretical and applied research results makes this book attractive to a variety of readers from both academia and industry.This book provides a new platform for implementing different types of socially-aware mobile applications. The platform hides the complexity of managing social context, and thus provides essential support to application developers for the development of socially-aware applications. The book contains detailed descriptions of how the underlying platform has been implemented using available technologies such as ontology and rule engines, and how this platform can be used to develop socially-aware mobile applications using two exemplar applications. The book also presents evaluations of the proposed platform and applications using real-world data from Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. Therefore, this book is a syndication of scientific research with practical industrial applications, making it useful to researchers as well as to software engineers.
