Logic of Analog and Digital Machines
Computer Science is a very young discipline compared to most others. Alan Turing
published the seminal paper of the field in 1936. Around the same time, the militaries in
Germany, UK, and US commissioned the first digital electronic computer projects. One of
these, the Colossus at Bletchley Park in the UK, was used to break the... The Intelligent Web: Search, smart algorithms, and big data
As we use the Web for social networking, shopping, and news, we leave a personal trail. These days, linger over a Web page selling lamps, and they will turn up at the advertising margins as you move around the Internet, reminding you, tempting you to make that purchase. Search engines such as Google can now look deep into the data on the Web...

Traditional person authentication methods based on passwords and identity
documents often fail to meet the stringent security and performance demands of
these... George Silverman's Explanation WHAT do I know of Hoghton Towers? Very little; for I have been gratefully unwilling to disturb my first impressions. A house, centuries old, on high ground a mile or so removed from the road between Preston and Blackburn, where the first James of England, in his hurry to make money by making baronets, perhaps made some of those remunerative... Optimal Design of Queueing Systems
The First Comprehensive Book on the Subject
Focusing on the underlying structure of a system, Optimal Design of Queueing Systems explores how to set the parameters of a queueing system, such as arrival and service rates, before putting it into operation. It considers various objectives, comparing...
Signals and Boundaries: Building Blocks for Complex Adaptive Systems
Complex adaptive systems (cas), including ecosystems, governments, biological cells, and markets, are characterized by intricate hierarchical arrangements of boundaries and signals. In ecosystems, for example, niches act as semi-permeable boundaries, and smells and visual patterns serve as signals; governments have departmental hierarchies...
Distributed Multiple Description Coding: Principles, Algorithms and Systems
This book examines distributed video coding (DVC) and multiple description coding (MDC), two novel techniques designed to address the problems of conventional image and video compression coding. Covering all fundamental concepts and core technologies, the chapters can also be read as independent and self-sufficient, describing each...
Breast Cancer: Nuclear Medicine in Diagnosis and Therapeutic Options
