 Queueing Theory with Applications to Packet TelecommunicationSoon after Samuel Morse’s telegraphing device led to a deployed electricaltelecommunications system in 1843, waiting lines began to form by thosewanting to use the system. At this writing queueing is still a significant factor indesigning and operating communications services, whether they are providedover the Internet...

 Digital Dice: Computational Solutions to Practical Probability Problems"Paul Nahin's Digital Dice is a marvelous book, one that is even better than his Duelling Idiots. Nahin presents twenty-one great probability problems, from George Gamow's famous elevator paradox (as corrected by Donald Knuth) to a bewildering puzzle involving two rolls of toilet paper, and he solves them all with the aid... Level Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and FieldsLevel Sets and Extrema of Random Processes and Fields discusses how to understand the properties of the level sets of paths as well as how to compute the probability distribution of its extremal values, which are two general classes of problems that arise in the study of random processes and fields and in related applications. This book... Foundations of Dependable Computing: Models and Frameworks for Dependable SystemsFoundations of Dependable Computing: Models and Frameworks for Dependable Systems presents two comprehensive frameworks for reasoning about system dependability, thereby establishing a context for understanding the roles played by specific approaches presented in this book's two companion volumes. It then explores the range of models and...
 Flexible Shift Planning in the Service Industry: The Case of Physicians in HospitalsThe book presents new ideas to model and solve the flexible shift planning problem of personnel workers in the service industry. First, a new modeling approach is proposed that requires shifts to be generated implicitly rather than employing a predefined set of shift types like three 8-hour or two 12-hour shifts to cover varying forecast demand.... The Red Gate Guide to SQL Server Team-based Development Only small projects, relevant to very few people, are built by the sweat and toil of a lone developer. Larger projects, affecting whole organizations, will invariably require a team of people to design and develop the application and its storage layer, or database. In some cases, this will mean some developers and one or two DBAs,... 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...
 Equidistribution in Number Theory, An Introduction From July 11th to July 22nd, 2005, a NATO advanced study institute, as part of the series “S´eminaire de math´ematiques sup´erieures”, was held at the Universit ´e de Montr´eal, on the subject Equidistribution in the theory of numbers. There were about one hundred participants from sixteen... Advanced XML Applications from the Experts at The XML Guild The foundations of XML are found in two World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) recommendations: Extensible Markup Language and Namespaces in XML. Using just these foundations, it is very simple and straightforward to express a set of information in a labeled hierarchy. The hierarchy has simple parent, child, and sibling relationships,... The Black Death (Great Historic Disasters) In 1346, Europe was hit by the worst natural disaster in its recorded history: the Black Death. Generally believed to be a combination of bubonic plague and two other plague strains, the Black Death ravaged the length and breadth of Europe from Sicily to Norway, from Ireland to Russia, for five terrible years. Scholars can...
