Risk, Complexity and ICT This book explores the challenges regarding risks and risk management related to the growing complexity of ICT solutions.
The main argument of the book is that the complexity of ICT solutions has continued to grow throughout the history of ICT, and that it has now reached a level that goes beyond our current understanding of...
Software by Design: Shaping Technology and The Workplace As computers become more and more integral to business and other organizational operations around the world, software design must increasingly meet the social demands of the workplace. This book provides an informative, cogent examination of how various social factors--such as organizational structure, workplace relations, and market... Luminescence and the Solid State, Second Edition (Studies in Inorganic Chemistry) Since the first date of publication of this book in 1991, the subject of phosphors and luminescence has assumed even more importance in the overall scheme of technological development. Many new types of displays have appeared which depend upon phosphors in their operation. Some of these were pure conjecture in 1991 but are a reality in 2004....
The Doctor in the Victorian Novel
With the character of the doctor as her subject, Tabitha Sparks follows the decline of the marriage plot in the Victorian novel. As Victorians came to terms with the scientific revolution in medicine of the mid-to-late nineteenth century, the novel's progressive distance from the conventions of the marriage plot can be indexed through a rising...
Environmental Pollution and Control, Fourth Edition
Complex environmental problems are often reduced to an inappropriate level of simplicity. While this book does not seek to present a comprehensive scientific and technical coverage of all aspects of the subject matter, it makes the issues, ideas, and language of environmental engineering accessible and understandable to the nontechnical...
Multimedia Systems: Algorithms, Standards, and Industry Practices
Multimedia is now a broad “umbrella” that innovatively combines different fields of
research and industry to produce practical solutions that are used on a wide scale
today. Some of these fields are signal processing, imaging and color science, video and
audio analysis, 2D/3D graphics, information theory, compression,...
Elements of Data Compression
The data compression field has always been an important part of computer science,
and it is becoming increasingly popular and important today. Although computers
become faster and data storage becomes less expensive and more efficient, the in
creased importance of sound and video necessitates the use of at least a small mea
Algorithms in Modern Mathematics and Computer Science: Proceedings, Urgench
Some TIME ago a group of mathematicians and computer scientists (including the editors
of this volume) thought of making a scientific pilgrimage to the birthplace of al-Khw&rizmf,
the outstanding ninth-century mathematician who gave his name to the word "algorithm".
As his name indicates, al-Khwarizmi came from the Khorezm...
