Geometry and topology of manifolds by Hans U. Boden, Ian Hambleton, Andrew J. Nicas, B. Doug Park

By Hans U. Boden, Ian Hambleton, Andrew J. Nicas, B. Doug Park

This booklet comprises expository papers that supply an updated account of contemporary advancements and open difficulties within the geometry and topology of manifolds, besides numerous learn articles that current new effects showing in released shape for the 1st time. The unifying topic is the matter of realizing manifolds in low dimensions, particularly in dimensions 3 and 4, and the options comprise algebraic topology, surgical procedure idea, Donaldson and Seiberg-Witten gauge conception, Heegaard Floer homology, touch and symplectic geometry, and Gromov-Witten invariants. The articles accumulated for this quantity have been contributed through individuals of the convention 'Geometry and Topology of Manifolds' held at McMaster collage on could 14-18, 2004 and are consultant of the various very good talks added on the convention.

Integration of the Semantic Web and Model-Driven Software by Fernando Silva Parreiras

By Fernando Silva Parreiras

The following firm computing period will depend upon the synergy among either applied sciences: semantic net and model-driven software program improvement (MDSD). The semantic net organizes procedure wisdom in conceptual domain names in keeping with its that means. It addresses a variety of firm computing wishes via determining, abstracting and rationalizing commonalities, and checking for inconsistencies throughout process requirements. at the different part, model-driven software program improvement is ultimate the space between enterprise requisites, designs and executables through the use of domain-specific languages with custom-built syntax and semantics. It makes a speciality of utilizing modeling languages as programming languages.

Among many components of software, we spotlight the world of configuration administration. examine the instance of a telecommunication corporation, the place dealing with the a number of configurations of community units (routers, hubs, modems, etc.) is important. firm structures determine and record the practical and actual features of community units, and regulate adjustments to these features. employing the mixing of semantic net and model-driven software program improvement permits for

(1) explicitly specifying configurations of community units with tailored languages,

(2) for checking the consistency of those specifications

(3) for outlining a vocabulary to proportion gadget necessities throughout firm structures. via dealing with configurations with constant and particular options, we decrease rate and danger, and improve agility in keeping with new specifications within the telecommunication area.

This e-book examines the synergy among semantic net and model-driven software program improvement. It brings jointly advances from disciplines like ontologies, description logics, domain-specific modeling, version transformation and ontology engineering to take firm computing to the following level.

Raspberry Pi Cookbook: Software and Hardware Problems and by Simon Monk

By Simon Monk

With hundreds of thousands of recent clients and several other new types, the Raspberry Pi environment keeps to expand—along with loads of new questions on the Pi’s features. the second one version of this well known cookbook presents greater than 240 hands-on recipes for operating this tiny reasonably cheap desktop with Linux, programming it with Python, and hooking up sensors, vehicles, and different hardware—including Arduino and the net of Things.

Prolific hacker and writer Simon Monk additionally teaches uncomplicated rules that can assist you use new applied sciences with Raspberry Pi as its atmosphere keeps to advance. This cookbook is perfect for programmers and hobbyists accustomed to the Pi via assets, together with Getting all started with Raspberry Pi (O’Reilly). Python and different code examples from the ebook can be found on GitHub.

  • Set up your Raspberry Pi and fasten to a network
  • Work with its Linux-based working system
  • Program Raspberry Pi with Python
  • Give your Pi "eyes" with machine vision
  • Control in the course of the GPIO connector
  • Use Raspberry Pi to run forms of motors
  • Work with switches, keypads, and different electronic inputs
  • Use sensors to degree temperature, mild, and distance
  • Connect to IoT units in quite a few ways
  • Create dynamic initiatives with Arduino

Atlas of Muscle Innervation Zones: Understanding Surface by Marco Barbero, Roberto Merletti, Alberto Rainoldi

By Marco Barbero, Roberto Merletti, Alberto Rainoldi

Invasive electromyography is a well-established diagnostic software that has been used for many years through neurologists. lately, new and substitute units have more and more develop into to be had that allow analysis with out using needles. This constructing zone of technological know-how and the recent instruments haven't, even though, been sufficiently investigated in educational education. therefore a niche exists among what technological know-how is making attainable and the competence received in the course of graduate reviews. this useful quantity has the purpose of filling this hole by way of offering the knowledge required through clinical practitioners in rehabilitation, activities, and occupational healthiness in addition to via rehabilitation therapists, ergonomists, and recreation coaches. The ideas which are provided and defined may help in tracking and recording adjustments, comparing the effectiveness of remedies and coaching, comparing paintings stations, and fighting and documenting the evolution of occupational issues of the neuromuscular system.

An introduction to topology and homotopy by Allan J. Sieradski

By Allan J. Sieradski

This article is an creation to topology and homotopy. issues are built-in right into a coherent complete and built slowly so scholars are usually not crushed. the 1st half the textual content treats the topology of whole metric areas, together with their hyperspaces of sequentially compact subspaces. the second one half the textual content develops the homotopy type. there are lots of examples and over 900 workouts, representing quite a lot of trouble. This publication may be of curiosity to undergraduates and researchers in arithmetic.

Utility Computing Technologies, Standards, And Strategies by Alfredo Mendoza

By Alfredo Mendoza

Software computing is an more and more very important architectural version that permits IT provider orientated companies and departments to make computing assets to be had to the top person on an as wanted foundation. The aim of software computing is to maximise the effective use of computing assets and reduce linked expenditures. supplying pros with specialist tips on integrating software computing inside their association, this well timed, easy-to-understand source deals a unified view of this service-provisioning version. slicing during the advertising and marketing hype, the e-book in actual fact explains the explanation in the back of application computing innovations from significant proprietors like IBM, HP, and solar. Practitioners achieve a radical realizing of the applied sciences in the back of application computing and observe how they are often carried out and tailored inside state-of-the-art SOO (service orientated association) surroundings. This authoritative reference provides real-world case reviews of proprietors who've effectively applied software computing recommendations and describes how software computing transcends assorted industries.
