Crowdsourced Data Management: Hybrid Machine-Human Computing by Guoliang Li
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 169 Pages | ISBN : 9811078467 | 21.10 MB

This book provides an overview of crowdsourced data management. Covering all aspects including the workflow, algorithms and research potential, it particularly focuses on the latest techniques and recent advances. The authors identify three key aspects in determining the performance of crowdsourced data management: quality control, cost control and latency control. By surveying and synthesizing a wide spectrum of studies on crowdsourced data management, the book outlines important factors that need to be considered to improve crowdsourced data management. It also introduces a practical crowdsourced-database-system design and presents a number of crowdsourced operators. Self-contained and covering theory, algorithms, techniques and applications, it is a valuable reference resource for researchers and students new to crowdsourced data management with a basic knowledge of data structures and databases.

Restaurant Chains in China: The Dilemma of Standardisation versus Authenticity by Guojun Zeng
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 137 Pages | ISBN : 981130985X | 10.75 MB

This book explores the paradox of the hospitality industry: customers demand not only personal and innovative tourism products and services, but also cost-effective ones. Enterprises have the option to meet the former demand by offering authentic products and services while the latter could be achieved through standardization. Although it seems ideal to combine both concepts, they seemingly contradict each other leading to suppliers facing an authenticity-standardization paradox. The authors identify, analyze, and provide solutions for this authenticity-standardization paradox based on a series of case studies of restaurants in China. This book will be of interest to scholars, business owners, and consultants.

Advances in Biological Treatment of Industrial Waste Water and their Recycling for a Sustainable Future by Ram Lakhan Singh
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 376 Pages | ISBN : 9811314675 | 22.81 MB

With rampant industrialization, the management of waste generated by various industries is becoming a mammoth problem. Wastewater discharges from industrial and commercial sources may contain pollutants at levels that could affect the quality of receiving waters or interfere with potable water supplies. Thousands of small and large-scale industrial units dump their waste, which is often toxic and hazardous, in open spaces and nearby water sources. Over the last three decades, many cases of serious and permanent damage to the environment and human health on the part of these industries have come to the fore.

Cardiovascular Complications in Cancer Therapy by Antonio Russo
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 228 Pages | ISBN : 3319934015 | 18.36 MB

This proposed text is designed to provide a useful and comprehensive resource and state-of-the-art overview to readers about vascular damage potentially induced by antineoplastic drugs. Thanks to more and more effective antineoplastic treatments the survival of cancer patients is enormously increasing, but at the same time it is increasing the burden of related cardiovascular complications that affect morbidity and mortality. On this basis a new branch of cardiology has been developed, that is Cardio-Oncology.

Spectral Methods for Incompressible Viscous Flow by Roger Peyret
English | PDF | 2002 | 438 Pages | ISBN : 0387952217 | 33.62 MB

This book provides a comprehensive discussion of Fourier and Chebyshev spectral methods for the computation of incompressible viscous flows, based on the Navier-Stokes equations. The book is in three parts. The first part presents the fundamentals of the Fourier and Chebyshev methods for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations considered in vorticity-streamfunction and velocity-pressure formulations. The third part of the book is concerned with the solution of stiff and singular problems, and with the domain decomposition method.

If you place a large number of points randomly in the unit square, what is the distribution of the radius of the largest circle containing no points? Of the smallest circle containing 4 points? Why do Brownian sample paths have local maxima but not points of increase, and how nearly do they have points of increase? Given two long strings of letters drawn i. i. d. from a finite alphabet, how long is the longest consecutive (resp. non-consecutive) substring appearing in both strings?

Optimal Control Theory by Leonard D. Berkovitz
English | PDF | 1974 | 315 Pages | ISBN : 1441928049 | 17.8 MB

This book is an introduction to the mathematical theory of optimal control of processes governed by ordinary differential eq- tions. It is intended for students and professionals in mathematics and in areas of application who want a broad, yet relatively deep, concise and coherent introduction to the subject and to its relati- ship with applications. In order to accommodate a range of mathema- cal interests and backgrounds among readers, the material is arranged so that the more advanced mathematical sections can be omitted wi- out loss of continuity. For readers primarily interested in appli- tions a recommended minimum course consists of Chapter I, the sections of Chapters II, III, and IV so recommended in the introductory sec­ tions of those chapters, and all of Chapter V. The introductory sec­ tion of each chapter should further guide the individual reader toward material that is of interest to him.

Integral Transforms and Their Applications by B. Davies
English | PDF | 1978 | 427 Pages | ISBN : 0387903135 | 18.86 MB

This book is intended to serve as introductory and reference material for the application of integral transforms to a range of common mathematical problems. It has its im­ mediate origin in lecture notes prepared for senior level courses at the Australian National University, although I owe a great deal to my colleague Barry Ninham, a matter to which I refer below. In preparing the notes for publication as a book, I have added a considerable amount of material ad- tional to the lecture notes, with the intention of making the book more useful, particularly to the graduate student - volved in the solution of mathematical problems in the physi­ cal, chemical, engineering and related sciences.

Dynamics of Evolutionary Equations by George R. Sell
English | PDF | 2002 | 680 Pages | ISBN : 0387983473 | 55.38 MB

The theory and applications of infinite dimensional dynamical systems have attracted the attention of scientists for quite some time. Dynamical issues arise in equations that attempt to model phenomena that change with time. The infi­ nite dimensional aspects occur when forces that describe the motion depend on spatial variables, or on the history of the motion. In the case of spatially depen­ dent problems, the model equations are generally partial differential equations, and problems that depend on the past give rise to differential-delay equations. Because the nonlinearities occurring in thse equations need not be small, one needs good dynamical theories to understand the longtime behavior of solutions.

Wave Packets and Their Bifurcations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics by Huijun Yang
English | PDF | 1991 | 253 Pages | ISBN : 0387972579 | 19.80 MB

The material in this book is based predominantly on my recent work. It is the first monograph on the subject, though some support material may overlap other monographs. The investigation of wave packets and their bi­ furcations is very interesting, and useful theoretically and in practice, not only in geophysical fluid dynamics, which is the field to which the theory is being applied here, but also in other fields in mathematics and the natural sciences.

The Boundary Value Problems of Mathematical Physics by O. A. Ladyzhenskaya
English | PDF | 1985 | 350 Pages | ISBN : 0387909893 | 32.99 MB

In the present edition I have included "Supplements and Problems" located at the end of each chapter. This was done with the aim of illustrating the possibilities of the methods contained in the book, as well as with the desire to make good on what I have attempted to do over the course of many years for my students-to awaken their creativity, providing topics for independent work. The source of my own initial research was the famous two-volume book Methods of Mathematical Physics by D. Hilbert and R. Courant, and a series of original articles and surveys on partial differential equations and their applications to problems in theoretical mechanics and physics.
