Description: Imaging Heat and Mass Transfer Processes: Visualization and
Analysis applies Schlieren and shadowgraph techniques to complex
heat and mass transfer processes. Several applications are
considered where thermal and concentration fields play a central
role. These include vortex shedding and suppression from stationary
and oscillating bluff bodies such as cylinders, convection around
crystals growing from solution, and buoyant jets. Many of these
processes are unsteady and three dimensional. The interpretation
and analysis of images recorded are discussed in the text.

From scientific instrument to industrial machine: Coping with architectural stress in embedded systems (SpringerBriefs in Electrical and Computer Engineering) (by Richard Doornbos, Sjir van Loo)


Author(s): Richard Doornbos, Sjir van Loo

Publisher: Springer

ISBN-10: 9400741464
ISBN-13: 9789400741461
Language: English
Description:
Architectural stress is the inability of a system design to
respond to new market demands. It is an important yet often
concealed issue in high tech systems. In From scientific
instrument to industrial machine, we look at the phenomenon
of architectural stress in embedded systems in the context of a
transmission electron microscope system built by FEI Company.
Traditionally, transmission electron microscopes are manually
operated scientific instruments, but they also have enormous
potential for use in industrial applications. However, this new
market has quite different characteristics. There are strong
demands for… more…

Nonlinear Optical Properties of Materials (Springer Series in Optical Sciences) (by Rashid A. Ganeev)


Author(s): Rashid A. Ganeev

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2013-01-08
ISBN-10: 9400760213
ISBN-13: 9789400760219
Language: English
Description: This book is mostly concerned on the experimental research of the
nonlinear optical characteristics of various media, low- and
high-order harmonic generation in different materials, and
formation, and nonlinear optical characterization of clusters. We
also demonstrate the inter-connection between these areas of
nonlinear optics.  

Nonlinear optical properties of media such as optical limiting can
be applied in various areas of science and technology. To define
suitable materials for these applications, one has to carefully
analyse the nonlinear optical characteristics of various media,
such as the nonlinear refractive indices,… more…

Creativity in the Digital Age (Springer Series on Cultural Computing) (by Nelson Zagalo, Pedro Branco)


Author(s): Nelson Zagalo, Pedro Branco

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2015-05-14
ISBN-10: 1447166809
ISBN-13: 9781447166801
Language: English
Description: This edited book discusses the exciting field of Digital
Creativity. Through exploring the current state of the creative
industries, the authors show how technologies are reshaping our
creative processes and how they are affecting the innovative
creation of new products. Readers will discover how creative
production processes are dominated by digital data transmission
which makes the connection between people, ideas and creative
processes easy to achieve within collaborative and co-creative
environments. Since we rely on our senses to understand our world,
perhaps of more significance is that technologies through 3D
printing are returning from the… more…

International Handbook of Metacognition and Learning Technologies (Springer International Handbooks of Education) (by Roger Azevedo, Vincent Aleven)


Author(s): Roger Azevedo, Vincent Aleven

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2013-04-23
ISBN-10: 1441955453
ISBN-13: 9781441955456
Language: English
Description: Education in today's technologically advanced environments makes
complex cognitive demands on students pre-learning, during, and
post-learning. Not surprisingly, these analytical learning
processes–metacognitive processes–have become an important focus
of study as new learning technologies are assessed for
effectiveness in this area.Rich in theoretical models and empirical
data, the International Handbook of Metacognition and Learning
Technologies synthesizes current research on this critical topic.
This interdisciplinary reference delves deeply into component
processes of self-regulated learning (SRL), examining theories and
models of… more…

Who Gets Funds from China’s Capital Market?: A Micro View of China’s Economy via Case Studies on Listed Chinese SMEs (SpringerBriefs in Business) (by Jiazhuo G. Wang, Juan Yang)


Author(s): Jiazhuo G. Wang, Juan Yang

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2014-01-13
ISBN-10: 3642449123
ISBN-13: 9783642449123
Language: English
Description:
The subject of this book is an analysis of the business models
developed or adopted by Chinese small and medium sized
enterprises (SMEs), specifically those that are successfully
listed on China’s capital market; in other words, it is a
dissection of those Chinese business models that have “worked.”
In China, there are over 10 million companies that are registered
with China’s State Industrial and Commercial Administration and
over 40 million unregistered businesses. Among them, only about
1,000 companies became successfully listed on China’s capital
market and were able to obtain public funds from equity
investors…. more…

Automatic Design of Decision-Tree Induction Algorithms (SpringerBriefs in Computer Science) (by Alex A. Freitas, Rodrigo C. Barros, André C. P. L. F. de Carvalho)


Author(s): Alex A. Freitas, Rodrigo C. Barros, André C. P. L. F. de Carvalho

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2015-02-04
ISBN-10: 3319142305
ISBN-13: 9783319142302
Language: English
Description:
Presents a detailed study of the major design components that
constitute a top-down decision-tree induction algorithm,
including aspects such as split criteria, stopping criteria,
pruning and the approaches for dealing with missing values.
Whereas the strategy still employed nowadays is to use a
'generic' decision-tree induction algorithm regardless of the
data, the authors argue on the benefits that a bias-fitting
strategy could bring to decision-tree induction, in which the
ultimate goal is the automatic generation of a decision-tree
induction algorithm tailored to the application domain of
interest. For such, they discuss… more…

design. Particularly, this works describes the modifications inside
the AIDA Framework, an electronic design automation framework fully
developed by at the Integrated Circuits Group-LX of the Instituto
de Telecomunicações, Lisbon. It focusses on AIDA-CMK, by enhancing
AIDA-C, which is the circuit optimizer component of AIDA, with a
new multi-objective multi-constraint optimization module that
constructs a base for multiple algorithm implementations. The
proposed solution implements three approaches to multi-objective… more…

Time Series Modeling for Analysis and Control: Advanced Autopilot and Monitoring Systems (SpringerBriefs in Statistics) (by Kohei Ohtsu, Hui Peng, Genshiro Kitagawa)


Author(s): Kohei Ohtsu, Hui Peng, Genshiro Kitagawa

Publisher: Springer
Publish date: 2015-05-14
ISBN-10: 4431553029
ISBN-13: 9784431553021
Language: English
Description: This book presents multivariate time series methods for the
analysis and optimal control of feedback systems. Although ships’
autopilot systems are considered through the entire book, the
methods set forth in this book can be applied to many other
complicated, large, or noisy feedback control systems for which it
is difficult to derive a model of the entire system based on theory
in that subject area. The basic models used in this method are the
multivariate autoregressive model with exogenous variables (ARX)
model and the radial bases function net-type coefficients ARX
model. The noise contribution analysis can then be performed
through the… more…
