This volume provides the latest developments in the field of fractional dynamics, which covers fractional (anomalous) transport phenomena, fractional statistical mechanics, fractional quantum mechanics and fractional quantum field theory. The contributors are selected based on their active and important contributions to their respective topics. This volume is the first of its kind that covers such a comprehensive range of topics in fractional dynamics. It will point out to advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and young researchers the possible directions of research in this subject.
In addition to those who intend to work in this field and those already in the field, this volume will also be useful for researchers not directly involved in the field, but want to know the current status and trends of development in this subject. This latter group includes theoretical chemists, mathematical biologists and engineers.
Moral Machines: Teaching Robots Right from Wrong So in a single thought-provoking volume, the authors not only introduce machine ethics, but also an inquiry which penetrates to the deepest foundations of ethics. The conscientious reader will no doubt find many challenging ideas here that will require a reassessment of her own beliefs, making this text a must-read among recent books in philosophy,...
Real-Time Systems: Scheduling, Analysis, and Verification
This text is based on two rich sources: (1) materials in lecture notes I taught to senior
and graduate-level computer science and electrical engineering students at Rice University
and at the University of Houston, and (2) my research in the area of timing
analysis and verification of real-time systems since the late 1980s,... Hacking the Human
Information security is about people, yet in most organizations protection remains focused on technical countermeasures. The human element is crucial in the majority of successful attacks on systems and attackers are rarely required to find technical vulnerabilities, hacking the human is usually sufficient.Ian Mann turns the black art of...
PHP 5 / MySQL Programming for the Absolute Beginner Computer programming has often been seen as a difficult and arcane
skill. Programming languages are difficult and complicated, out of the
typical person’s reach. However, the advent of the World Wide Web has
changed that to some extent. It’s reasonably easy to build and post a
Web page for the entire world to see....
