Written by leading experts in the field, this book offers an introduction to recent developments in port and hinterland strategies, operations and related specializations. The book begins with a broad overview of port definitions, concepts and the role of ports in global supply chains, and an examination of strategic topics such as port management, governance, performance, hinterlands and the port-city relationship. The second part of the book examines operational aspects of maritime, port and land networks. A range of topics are explored, such as liner networks, finance and business models, port-industrial clusters, container terminals, intermodality/synchromodality, handling and warehousing. The final section of the book provides insights into key issues of port development and management, from security, sustainability, innovation strategies, transition management and labour issues. Drawing on a variety of global case studies, theoretical insights are supplemented with real world and best practice examples, this book will be of interest to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates, scholars and professionals interested in maritime studies, transport studies, economics and geography.
Bringing together an international network of leading scholars, this multidisciplinary book unravels some of the most pressing challenges to shipping, ports, and logistics. Divided into five parts--shipping, the analysis of flows and networks, terminal operations and performance, logistics, and port development and governance--this record is an essential read for practitioners in the maritime and logistics world, postgraduate students, policy makers, and professional organizations. As market players expand and improve their services in line with increased requirements on rates, reliability, environmental footprint, and safety and security, this compendium encourages further systematic thinking.
The object of this book is to cover most of the currently relevant areas of data communications and networks. These include: Communications protocols (especially TCP/IP) Networking (especially in Ethernet, Fast Ethernet, FDDI and ATM) Networking operating systems (especially in Windows NT, Novell NetWare and UNIX) Communications programs (especially in serial communications, parallel communications and TCP/IP) Computer hardware (especially in PC hardware, serial communications and parallel communication) The book thus splits into 15 different areas, these are: General data compression (Chapters 2 and 3) Video, images and sound (Chapters 4-11 ) Error coding and encryption (Chapters 12-17) TCP/IP, WWW, Internets and Intranets (Chapters 18-20 and 23) Electronic Mail (Chapter 21 ) HTML (Chapters 25 and 26) Java (Chapters 27-29) Communication Programs (Chapters 20, 29 and 49) Network Operating Systems (Chapters 31-34) LANs/WANs (Chapters 35, 38-46) Serial Communications (Chapters 47 and 48) Parallel Communications (Chapters 50-52) Local Communications (Chapters 53-57) Routing and Protocols (Chapters 36 and 37) Cables and connectors (Chapters 58--60) Many handbooks and reference guides on the market contain endless tables and mathematics, or are dry to read and contain very little insight in their subject area. I have tried to make this book readable, but also contain key information which can be used by professionals.

Security of Information and Networks includes invited and contributed papers on information assurance, security, and public policy. It covers Ciphers, Mobile Agents, Access Control, Security Assurance, Intrusion Detection, and Security Software.
Complete full-spectrum guide to network planning and implementation by practicing systems professionals. Features step-by-step explanations of every aspect of data communications including cost/benefit, installation, and troubleshooting procedures.
Starting from the fundamentals, the present book describes methods of designing analog electronic filters and illustrates these methods by providing numerical and circuit simulation programs. The subject matters comprise many concepts and techniques that are not available in other text books on the market. To name a few - principle of transposition and its application in directly realizing current mode filters from well known voltage mode filters; an insight into the technological aspect of integrated circuit components used to implement an integrated circuit filter; a careful blending of basic theory, numerical verification (using MATLAB) and illustration of the actual circuit behaviour using circuit simulation program (SPICE); illustration of few design cases using CMOS and BiCMOS technological processes.
This updated guide presents expert information on analyzing, designing, and implementing all aspects of computer network security. Based on the authors' earlier work, Computer System and Network Security, this new book addresses important concerns regarding network security. It contains new chapters on World Wide Web security issues, secure electronic commerce, incident response, as well as two new appendices on PGP and UNIX security fundamentals.
