Topics covered include, but are not limited to, the evolution of spatial patterns on metapopulations, problems related to cardiovascular diseases and modeled by boundary control techniques in hemodynamics, algebraic modeling of the genetic code, and multi-step biochemical pathways. Also, new results are presented on topics like pattern recognition of probability distribution of amino acids, somitogenesis through reaction-diffusion models, mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, and many others. Experts, scientific practitioners, graduate students and professionals working in various interdisciplinary fields will find this book a rich resource for research and applications alike.
This volume presents infectious diseases modeled mathematically, taking seasonality and changes in population behavior into account, using a switched and hybrid systems framework. The scope of coverage includes background on mathematical epidemiology, including classical formulations and results; a motivation for seasonal effects and changes in population behavior, an investigation into term-time forced epidemic models with switching parameters, and a detailed account of several different control strategies. The main goal is to study these models theoretically and to establish conditions under which eradication or persistence of the disease is guaranteed. In doing so, the long-term behavior of the models is determined through mathematical techniques from switched systems theory. Numerical simulations are also given to augment and illustrate the theoretical results and to help study the efficacy of the control schemes.

This book lists general information about a Monte Carlo simulation methodology in radio. In addition to providing general information, the text also constitutes a specification of the first generation of software SEAMCAT (spectrum engineering advanced Monte Carlo analysis tool) that uses the Monte Carlo method applied to radio cases.The problem of unwanted emissions, an important factor affecting the efficiency of radio spectrum use is the subject of an in-depth treatment in various forums both internal and external to the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT). While the need to re-evaluate the limits of unwanted emissions within Section 3 of the Radio Regulations (RR) is supported, it is generally considered to be preferable to use for this purpose a generic method.One of the many reasons why generic methods are preferred is their ability, a priori, to deal with new systems and communication technologies as they arise. Another reason is that only a generic method can aspire to become the basis of an analytical tool widely recognized.The tool for radio Monte Carlo simulation described in this report was developed based on the above considerations, in the process of the European Radiocommunications Committee (ERC).SEAMCAT is the application of a Monte Carlo simulation model for radio, developed by a group of CEPT administrations, members of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and international scientific bodies. SEAMCAT is a computer program whose object code is public, being distributed by the European Radiocommunications Office (ERO) of the CEPT.Computing and information technology area courses have as objectives the training of human resources for the technological development of computing (hardware and software) in order to meet society''s needs for the application of computer technology in the interests of society and the formation teachers for middle and vocational education. Between the needs of society can be met with the aid of computers can be mentioned: storage of large volumes of information of all kinds and shapes and their recovery in an acceptable time; computing complex mathematical calculations in extremely short time; secure communication, fast and reliable; automation, control and monitoring of complex systems; fast computing repetitive calculations involving large amounts of information; processing images from different sources; games and tools to support teaching, etc. Application examples are found in the daily routine of companies (computing involving economic, financial and administrative information generated by business activities, industrial and services); in processing images generated by satellites for weather forecasts; in related to health activities (hospitals, doctors'' offices and public health agencies); in air traffic control systems; communication via the Internet; in the banking system, etc. The computation is for man an indispensable and fundamental tool in modern life. In the context of higher education in the field of Information Technology and its generation processes and automation of knowledge, we must consider the importance of curricula that can effectively prepare critical people, active and increasingly aware of their social roles and its contribution to scientific and technological advancement of the country. The social, humanitarian and ethical content of such training must orient curricula to ensure the expansion of human capabilities in close relation to the technical and scientific learning in the field of Computer and Information Technology. It is therefore a higher education in which individuals are also being trained to deal with human and ethical dimensions of knowledge and social relations.Applications of computing and computer area courses can be composed of four major areas of training: * Basic training, which comprises the basic principles of the area of computing, computer science, mathematics necessary to define them formally, physics and electricity needed to enable the understanding and design of viable computers technical and pedagogical training that introduces the basic knowledge the construction of knowledge, necessary for the development of the practice of computer education.* technological formation applying the basic technological development in computing * additional training allowing an interaction of the graduates of the courses with other professions
The articles that comprise this distinguished annual volume for the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics series have been written in honor of Gilbert Strang, a world renowned mathematician and exceptional person. Written by leading experts in complementarity, duality, global optimization, and quantum computations, this collection reveals the beauty of these mathematical disciplines and investigates recent developments in global optimization, nonconvex and nonsmooth analysis, nonlinear programming, theoretical and engineering mechanics, large scale computation, quantum algorithms and computation, and information theory.
Computational biology, mathematical biology, biology and biomedicine are currently undergoing spectacular progresses due to a synergy between technological advances and inputs from physics, chemistry, mathematics, statistics and computer science. The goal of this book is to evidence this synergy by describing selected developments in the following fields: bioinformatics, biomedicine and neuroscience. This work is unique in two respects - first, by the variety and scales of systems studied and second, by its presentation: Each chapter provides the biological or medical context, follows up with mathematical or algorithmic developments triggered by a specific problem and concludes with one or two success stories, namely new insights gained thanks to these methodological developments. It also highlights some unsolved and outstanding theoretical questions, with a potentially high impact on these disciplines. Two communities will be particularly interested in this book. The first one is the vast community of applied mathematicians and computer scientists, whose interests should be captured by the added value generated by the application of advanced concepts and algorithms to challenging biological or medical problems. The second is the equally vast community of biologists. Whether scientists or engineers, they will find in this book a clear and self-contained account of concepts and techniques from mathematics and computer science, together with success stories on their favorite systems. The variety of systems described represents a panoply of complementary conceptual tools. On a practical level, the resources listed at the end of each chapter (databases, software) offer invaluable support for getting started on a specific topic in the fields of biomedicine, bioinformatics and neuroscience.

The practice of modeling is best learned by those armed with fundamental methodologies and exposed to a wide variety of modeling experience. Ideally, this experience could be obtained by working on actual modeling problems. But time constraints often make this difficult. Applied Mathematical Modeling provides a collection of models illustrating the power and richness of the mathematical sciences in supplying insight into the operation of important real-world systems. It fills a gap within modeling texts, focusing on applications across a broad range of disciplines. The first part of the book discusses the general components of the modeling process and highlights the potential of modeling in practice. These chapters discuss the general components of the modeling process, and the evolutionary nature of successful model building. The second part provides a rich compendium of case studies, each one complete with examples, exercises, and projects. In keeping with the multidimensional nature of the models presented, the chapters in the second part are listed in alphabetical order by the contributor's last name. Unlike most mathematical books, in which you must master the concepts of early chapters to prepare for subsequent material, you may start with any chapter. Begin with cryptology, if that catches your fancy, or go directly to bursty traffic if that is your cup of tea. Applied Mathematical Modeling serves as a handbook of in-depth case studies that span the mathematical sciences, building upon a modest mathematical background. Readers in other applied disciplines will benefit from seeing how selected mathematical modeling philosophies and techniques can be brought to bear on problems in their disciplines. The models address actual situations studied in chemistry, physics, demography, economics, civil engineering, environmental engineering, industrial engineering, telecommunications, and other areas.

This volume gathers selected contributions from the participants of the Banff International Research Station (BIRS) workshop Coupled Mathematical Models for Physical and Biological Nanoscale Systems and their Applications, who explore various aspects of the analysis, modeling and applications of nanoscale systems, with a particular focus on low dimensional nanostructures and coupled mathematical models for their description. Due to the vastness, novelty and complexity of the interfaces between mathematical modeling and nanoscience and nanotechnology, many important areas in these disciplines remain largely unexplored. In their efforts to move forward, multidisciplinary research communities have come to a clear understanding that, along with experimental techniques, mathematical modeling and analysis have become crucial to the study, development and application of systems at the nanoscale. The conference, held at BIRS in autumn 2016, brought together experts from three different communities working in fields where coupled mathematical models for nanoscale and biosystems are especially relevant: mathematicians, physicists (both theorists and experimentalists), and computational scientists, including those dealing with biological nanostructures. Its objectives: summarize the state-of-the-art; identify and prioritize critical problems of major importance that require solutions; analyze existing methodologies; and explore promising approaches to addressing the challenges identified. The contributions offer up-to-date introductions to a range of topics in nano and biosystems, identify important challenges, assess current methodologies and explore promising approaches. As such, this book will benefit researchers in applied mathematics, as well as physicists and biologists interested in coupled mathematical models and their analysis for physical and biological nanoscale systems that concern applications in biotechnology and medicine, quantum information processing and optoelectronics.
