Название: Stability Analysis and Controller Design of Local Model Networks Автор: Christian Mayr Издательство: Springer Год: 2021 Страниц: 125 Язык: английский Формат: pdf (true), epub Размер: 13,8 MB
This book treats various methods for stability analysis and controller design of local model networks (LMNs). LMNs have proved to be a powerful tool in nonlinear dynamic system identification. Their system architecture is more suitable for controller design compared to alternative approximation methods. The main advantage is that linear controller design methods can be, at least locally, applied and combined with nonlinear optimization to calibrate stable state feedback as well as PID controller. The calibration of stable state-feedback controllers is based on the closed loop stability analysis methods. Here, global LMIs (Linear Matrix Inequalities) can be derived and numerically solved. For LMN based nonlinear PID controllers deriving global LMIs is not possible. Thus, two approaches are treated in this book. The first approach works iteratively to get LMIs in each iteration step. The second approach uses a genetic algorithm to determine the PID controller parameters where for each individual the stability is checked. It allows simultaneous enhancement of (competing) optimization criteria.
Название: Cybersecurity and Third-Party Risk: Third Party Threat Hunting Автор: Gregory C. Rasner Издательство: Wiley Год: 2021 Страниц: 480 Язык: английский Формат: pdf, epub Размер: 10.1 MB
Strengthen the weakest links in your cybersecurity chain. Across the world, the networks of hundreds of different world-class organizations have been breached in a seemingly never-ending stream of attacks that targeted the trusted vendors of major brands. From Target to Equifax, Home Depot, and GM, it seems as if no company is safe from a third-party incident or breach, regardless of size. And the advanced threats are now exploiting the intersection of weaknesses in cybersecurity and third-party risk management. In Cybersecurity and Third-Party Risk, veteran cybersecurity specialist Gregory Rasner walks readers through how to lock down the vulnerabilities posed to an organization's network by third parties. You'll discover how to move beyond a simple checklist and create an active, effective, and continuous system of third-party cybersecurity risk mitigation.

Discover the latest developments in fiber-optic communications with the newest edition of this leading textbook In the newly revised fifth edition of Fiber-Optic Communication Systems, accomplished researcher and author, Dr. Govind P. Agrawal, delivers brand-new updates and developments in the science of fiber optics communications. The book contains substantial additions covering the topics of coherence detection, space division multiplexing, and more advanced subjects. You’ll learn about topics like fiber’s losses, dispersion, and nonlinearities, as well as coherent lightwave systems. The latter subject has undergone major changes due to the extensive development of digital coherent systems over the last decade. Space-division multiplexing is covered as well, including multimode and multicore fibers developed in just the last ten years. Finally, the book concludes with a chapter on brand-new developments in the field that are still at the development stage and likely to become highly relevant for practitioners and researchers in the coming years.
Название: Task Intelligence for Search and Recommendation Автор: Chirag Shah, Ryen W White Издательство: Morgan & Claypool Год: 2021 Страниц: 162 Язык: английский Формат: pdf (true) Размер: 10.1 MB
While great strides have been made in the field of search and recommendation, there are still challenges and opportunities to address information access issues that involve solving tasks and accomplishing goals for a wide variety of users. Specifically, we lack intelligent systems that can detect not only the request an individual is making (what), but also understand and utilize the intention (why) and strategies (how) while providing information and enabling task completion. Many scholars in the fields of information retrieval, recommender systems, productivity (especially in task management and time management), and artificial intelligence have recognized the importance of extracting and understanding people's tasks and the intentions behind performing those tasks in order to serve them better.
Название: Visual Analysis of Multilayer Networks Автор: Fintan McGee Издательство: Morgan & Claypool Год: 2021 Формат: PDF Страниц: 152 Размер: 10 Mb Язык: English
The emergence of multilayer networks as a concept from the field of complex systems provides many new opportunities for the visualization of network complexity, and has also raised many new exciting challenges. The multilayer network model recognizes that the complexity of relationships between entities in real-world systems is better embraced as several interdependent subsystems (or layers) rather than a simple graph approach. Despite only recently being formalized and defined, this model can be applied to problems in the domains of life sciences, sociology, digital humanities, and more. Within the domain of network visualization there already are many existing systems, which visualize data sets having many characteristics of multilayer networks, and many techniques, which are applicable to their visualization. In this Synthesis Lecture, we provide an overview and structured analysis of contemporary multilayer network visualization. This is not only for researchers in visualization, but also for those who aim to visualize multilayer networks in the domain of complex systems, as well as those solving problems within application domains.
Название: Telecom Extreme Transformation: The Road to a Digital Service Provider Автор: Kaveh Hushyar, Harald Braun Издательство: CRC Press Год: 2021 Страниц: 259 Язык: английский Формат: pdf (true) Размер: 10.9 MB
Telecommunication companies deliver digital bits to the customers for a fee. There are two kinds of bits: "fast and faster dumb bits" which is capital intensive with low margins, and "intelligent bits" with additional content component and with higher margin. Traditional Communication Service Providers (CSPs) have gone through transformation after transformation over the past several decades. All past transformations have had one thing in common, that is the delivery of faster dumb bits, leveraging the technology evolution from analog to digital, to wireless, to IP. The next wave of transformations will be very different, we call it extreme transformation, in that the CSPs have to become a Digital Service Provider (DSP) to stay relevant. In the DSP world, with billions of sensors and IoT devices, digital lifestyle will be enabled by data mining and analytics, leading to decision making, and entertainment.
