A successor to the first and second editions, this updated and revised book is a leading companion guide for students and engineers alike, specifically software engineers who design algorithms. While succinct, this edition is mathematically rigorous, covering the foundations for both computer scientists and mathematicians with interest in the algorithmic foundations of Computer Science. Besides expositions on traditional algorithms such as Greedy, Dynamic Programming and Divide & Conquer, the book explores two classes of algorithms that are often overlooked in introductory textbooks: Randomised and Online algorithms — with emphasis placed on the algorithm itself. The book also covers algorithms in Linear Algebra, and the foundations of Computation. The coverage of Randomized and Online algorithms is timely: the former have become ubiquitous due to the emergence of cryptography, while the latter are essential in numerous fields as diverse as operating systems and stock market predictions. While being relatively short to ensure the essentiality of content, a strong focus has been placed on self-containment, introducing the idea of pre/post-conditions and loop invariants to readers of all backgrounds, as well as all the necessary mathematical foundations. The programming exercises in Python will be available on the web (see http: //www.msoltys.com/book for the companion web site). Contents: Preliminaries Greedy Algorithms Divide and Conquer Dynamic Programming Online Algorithms Randomized Algorithms Algorithms in Linear Algebra Computational Foundations Mathematical Foundations Readership: Students of undergraduate courses in algorithms and programming and associated professionals.

Provides in-depth coverage of traditional and current topics in sequential algorithms, and also gives a solid introduction to the theory of parallel and distributed algorithms reflecting the emergence of modern computing environments such as parallel computers, the Internet, cluster and grid computing.
In a single volume, The Mobile Communications Handbook 2nd. Edition covers the entire field - from principles of analog and digital communications to cordless telephones, wireless local area networks (LANs), and international technology standards. The amazing scope of the handbook ensures that it will be the primary reference for every aspect of mobile communications.
Now fully updated in a third edition, this is a comprehensive textbook on combinatorial optimization. It puts special emphasis on theoretical results and algorithms with provably good performance, in contrast to heuristics. The book contains complete but concise proofs, also for many deep results, some of which have not appeared in print before. Recent topics are covered as well, and numerous references are provided. This third edition contains a new chapter on facility location problems, an area which has been extremely active in the past few years. Furthermore there are several new sections and further material on various topics. New exercises and updates in the bibliography were added.

Presents a multi-objective design approach to the many powermagnetic devices in use today Power Magnetic Devices: A Multi-Objective Design Approachaddresses the design of power magnetic devices—includinginductors, transformers, electromagnets, and rotating electricmachinery—using a structured design approach based on formalsingle- and multi-objective optimization. The book opens with a discussion of evolutionary-computing-basedoptimization. Magnetic analysis techniques useful to the design ofall the devices considered in the book are then set forth. Thismaterial is then used for inductor design so readers can start thedesign process. Core loss is next considered; this material is usedto support transformer design. A chapter on force and torqueproduction feeds into a chapter on electromagnet design. This isfollowed by chapters on rotating machinery and the design of apermanent magnet AC machine. Finally, enhancements to the designprocess including thermal analysis and AC conductor losses due toskin and proximity effects are set forth. Power Magnetic Devices: Focuses on the design process as it relates to power magneticdevices such as inductors, transformers, electromagnets, androtating machinery Offers a structured design approach based on single- andmulti-objective optimization Helps experienced designers take advantage of new techniqueswhich can yield superior designs with less engineering time Provides numerous case studies throughout the book tofacilitate readers’ comprehension of the analysis and designprocess Includes Powerpoint-slide-based student and instructor lecturenotes and MATLAB-based examples, toolboxes, and design codes Designed to support the educational needs of students, PowerMagnetic Devices: A Multi-Objective Design Approach also servesas a valuable reference tool for practicing engineers anddesigners. MATLAB examples are available via the book supportsite.
This new edition of Invitation to Computer Science follows the breadth-first guidelines recommended by CC2001 to teach computer science topics from the ground up. The authors begin by showing that computer science is the study of algorithms, the central theme of the book, then move up the next five levels of the hierarchy: hardware, virtual machine, software, applications, and ethics. Utilizing rich pedagogy and a consistently engaging writing style, Schneider and Gersting provide students with a solid grounding in theoretical concepts, as well as important applications of computing and information technology. A laboratory manual and accompanying software is available as an optional bundle with this text.

This volume includes extended and revised versions of a set of selected papers from the International Conference on Electric and Electronics (EEIC 2011) , held on June 20-22 , 2011, which is jointly organized by Nanchang University, Springer, and IEEE IAS Nanchang Chapter. The objective of EEIC 2011 Volume 3 is to provide a major interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of new approaches from Electrical Power Systems and Computers, to foster integration of the latest developments in scientific research. 133 related topic papers were selected into this volume. All the papers were reviewed by 2 program committee members and selected by the volume editor Prof. Xiaofeng Wan. We hope every participant can have a good opportunity to exchange their research ideas and results and to discuss the state of the art in the areas of the Electrical Power Systems and Computers.
