This book is intended for anyone interested in advanced network analysis. If you wish to master the skills of analyzing and presenting network graphs effectively, then this is the book for you. No coding experience is required to use this book, although some familiarity with the Gephi user interface will be helpful.
If you want to learn network analysis and visualization along with graph concepts from scratch, then this book is for you. This is ideal for those of you with little or no understanding of Gephi and this domain, but will also be beneficial for those interested in expanding their knowledge and experience.
Master the robust features of R parallel programming to accelerate your data science computations About This Book Create R programs that exploit the computational capability of your cloud platforms and computers to the fullest Become an expert in writing the most efficient and highest performance parallel algorithms in R Get to grips with the concept of parallelism to accelerate your existing R programs Who This Book Is For This book is for R programmers who want to step beyond its inherent single-threaded and restricted memory limitations and learn how to implement highly accelerated and scalable algorithms that are a necessity for the performant processing of Big Data. No previous knowledge of parallelism is required. This book also provides for the more advanced technical programmer seeking to go beyond high level parallel frameworks. What You Will Learn Create and structure efficient load-balanced parallel computation in R, using R's built-in parallel package Deploy and utilize cloud-based parallel infrastructure from R, including launching a distributed computation on Hadoop running on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Get accustomed to parallel efficiency, and apply simple techniques to benchmark, measure speed and target improvement in your own code Develop complex parallel processing algorithms with the standard Message Passing Interface (MPI) using RMPI, pbdMPI, and SPRINT packages Build and extend a parallel R package (SPRINT) with your own MPI-based routines Implement accelerated numerical functions in R utilizing the vector processing capability of your Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) with OpenCL Understand parallel programming pitfalls, such as deadlock and numerical instability, and the approaches to handle and avoid them Build a task farm master-worker, spatial grid, and hybrid parallel R programs In Detail R is one of the most popular programming languages used in data science. Applying R to big data and complex analytic tasks requires the harnessing of scalable compute resources. Mastering Parallel Programming with R presents a comprehensive and practical treatise on how to build highly scalable and efficient algorithms in R. It will teach you a variety of parallelization techniques, from simple use of R's built-in parallel package versions of lapply(), to high-level AWS cloud-based Hadoop and Apache Spark frameworks. It will also teach you low level scalable parallel programming using RMPI and pbdMPI for message passing, applicable to clusters and supercomputers, and how to exploit thousand-fold simple processor GPUs through ROpenCL. By the end of the book, you will understand the factors that influence parallel efficiency, including assessing code performance and implementing load balancing; pitfalls to avoid, including deadlock and numerical instability issues; how to structure your code and data for the most appropriate type of parallelism for your problem domain; and how to extract the maximum performance from your R code running on a variety of computer systems. Style and approach This book leads you chapter by chapter from the easy to more complex forms of parallelism. The author's insights are presented through clear practical examples applied to a range of different problems, with comprehensive reference information for each of the R packages employed. The book can be read from start to finish, or by dipping in chapter by chapter, as each chapter describes a specific parallel approach and technology, so can be read as a standalone.
This book will help you get up and running on using CoreOS to develop effective computing networks. You will begin with understanding the basics of CoreOS. You will then discover what etcd is and how it is used, followed by launching Docker containers with systemd and fleet. Learn how to manage clusters, read system logs, and customize with cloud-config. You will set up the deployment to production using Docker builder and a private Docker registry. You will also see how to set up and use CoreUpdate and Enterprise Registry, and get an introduction to the new App Container called rkt and the newly introduced cluster manager known as Kubernetes. This book will equip you with all the information you need to leverage the power of CoreOS and the related containers for the effective deployment of your applications.
Proceedings of the 39th International Symposium 'Application of Computers and Operations Research in the Mineral Industry' (APCOM 2019), June 4-6, 2019, Wroclaw, Poland

Category: Technology & Engineering
The conferences on ‘Applications for Computers and Operations Research in the Minerals Industry’ (APCOM) initially focused on the optimization of geostatistics and resource estimation. Several standard methods used in these fields were presented in the early days of APCOM. While geostatistics remains an important part, information technology has emerged, and nowadays APCOM not only focuses on geostatistics and resource estimation, but has broadened its horizon to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in the mineral industry. Mining Goes Digital is a collection of 90 high quality, peer reviewed papers covering recent ICT-related developments in: - Geostatistics and Resource Estimation - Mine Planning - Scheduling and Dispatch - Mine Safety and Mine Operation - Internet of Things, Robotics - Emerging Technologies - Synergies from other industries - General aspects of Digital Transformation in Mining Mining Goes Digital will be of interest to professionals and academics involved or interested in the above-mentioned areas.
