Researchers in data management have recently recognized the importance of a new class of data-intensive applications that requires managing data streams, i.e., data composed of continuous, real-time sequence of items. Streaming applications pose new and interesting challenges for data management systems. Such application domains require queries to be evaluated continuously as opposed to the one time evaluation of a query for traditional applications. Streaming data sets grow continuously and queries must be evaluated on such unbounded data sets. These, as well as other challenges, require a major rethink of almost all aspects of traditional database management systems to support streaming applications.
Stream Data Management comprises eight invited chapters by researchers active in stream data management. The collected chapters provide exposition of algorithms, languages, as well as systems proposed and implemented for managing streaming data.
Stream Data Management is designed to appeal to researchers or practitioners already involved in stream data management, as well as to those starting out in this area. This book is also suitable for graduate students in computer science interested in learning about stream data management.
Generic Inference: A Unifying Theory for Automated Reasoning
Abstract mathematical structures usually have a large number of models. Algorithms
based on operations and laws of such structures therefore have an identical form:
they are generic. This means that for each particular instance of the structure, only
the basic operations have to be adapted, whereas the overall algorithm remains the... Practical Immunopathology of the Skin (Current Clinical Pathology)
Bruce R. Smoller, md, concisely reviews for practitioners and students alike the science of immunopathology, its many basic laboratory tools, and their multiple diagnostic uses in actual clinical case studies. The author presents in an easily digestible form a dictionary of antibody probes, summarizing for each antibody the targeted antigen...
Neuroethics: Challenges for the 21st Century
In the late 1960s, a new field of philosophical and moral enquiry
came into existence. Bioethics, as it soon came to be called, quickly
mushroomed: it developed its own journals, its own professional
associations, its own conferences, degree programs and experts.
It developed very rapidly for many reasons, but no doubt the main... Hands-On Guide to Windows Media Hands-On Guide to Windows Media is a practical guide that teaches how to distribute audio and video efficiently and effectively over computer networks.
