The third book in the Rats trilogy, international bestseller James Herbert´s Domain pits man against mutant rats, who are back with a vengeance and more terrifying than ever. The long-dreaded nuclear conflict. The city torn apart, shattered, its people destroyed or mutilated beyond hope. For just a few, survival is possible only beneath the wrecked streets - if there is time to avoid the slow-descending poisonous ashes. But below, the rats, demonic offspring of their irradiated forebears, are waiting. They know that Man is weakened, become frail. Has become their prey . . .
Key Features: * Illustrates idioms and best practices * Starts with Functional Programming basics * Progresses to advanced concepts and patterns * Offers radically different techniques from the standard RDBMS AUDIENCE Written for developers and architects comfortable with the basic ideas of functional programming and traditional domain modeling. No prior exposure to Akka or reactive application design is expected.
The economic effects and the desirability of copyleft licenses still remain unclear. Copyleft relies upon social norms and the effects of consumer perceived value of computer operating system and mobile phones. Thus, ICT firms are left with decisions of trade-off between profiting from their invention through Intellectual property right and diffusion of the technology without barriers in becoming the dominant design, to attain user critical mass. This study aims to investigate using an empirical approach, the effect of the interaction between consumer perceived value and network effect on customer purchase decision of computer operating system and mobile phones, to formulate and discuss market policies to ICT firms in their decisions of adopting copyright or copyleft licenses.
This book offers an in-depth study of the design and challenges addressed by a high-level synthesis tool targeting a specific class of cryptographic kernels, i.e. symmetric key cryptography. With the aid of detailed case studies, it also discusses optimization strategies that cannot be automatically undertaken by CRYKET (Cryptographic kernels toolkit. The dynamic nature of cryptography, where newer cryptographic functions and attacks frequently surface, means that such a tool can help cryptographers expedite the very large scale integration (VLSI) design cycle by rapidly exploring various design alternatives before reaching an optimal design option. Features include flexibility in cryptographic processors to support emerging cryptanalytic schemes; area-efficient multinational designs supporting various cryptographic functions; and design scalability on modern graphics processing units (GPUs). These case studies serve as a guide to cryptographers exploring the design of efficient cryptographic implementations.
This book presents basic research on delta operator systems (DOS) with actuator saturation. It proposes null controllable regions of delta operator systems, introduces the enlarging of the domain of attraction and analyzes the performance of DOSs subject to actuator saturation. It also discusses the domain of attraction on different systems in delta domain, and investigates the applications in complicated systems using delta operator approaches.
The purpose of this book is to make available to the student some fundamentals of mathematical analysis. Specifically, it is intended to make such fundamentals available in a form that meets their need in many applications, like integration, and operator theory. The principal point of view is to develop the basic structures of analysis, under which one can appropriately go on further in the domain of Functional analysis.
This is a softcover reprint of chapters four through seven of the 1990 English translation of the revised and expanded version of Bourbaki´s Algebre. Much material was added or revised for this edition, which thoroughly establishes the theories of commutative fields and modules over a principal ideal domain.
Tracking is a much-loved, yet difficult, subject that attracts at least some of the attention of almost every bush-goer who ventures into the wild places of southern Africa. The ability to accurately read difficult, partial or little-seen signs left in the soil or sand is rare and largely the domain of professionals.
This book investigates the evolution process of rockburst based on the energy dissipation theory and proposes appropriate active prevention and control technologies. It discusses the electromagnetic radiation (EMR) generated by coal rock fractures as a measurement of the amount of dissipated energy, and the use of EMR to experimentally observe the time domain characteristics of energy dissipation during coal rock failure processes. It then proposes the concept of the rockburst activity domain system (RADS), establishes a dynamic pressure model of rockburst, and describes the energy criterion for rockburst instability. Lastly, it presents two waterjet cutting-based cases of pressure relief and rockburst prevention. The book serves as a reference resource for mine safety workers, engineering technicians, scientists, graduate students and undergraduates engaged in research on dynamic hazards such as rockburst..
This book is a collection of papers from international experts presented at International Conference on NextGen Electronic Technologies (ICNETS2-2016). ICNETS2 encompassed six symposia covering all aspects of electronics and communications domains, including relevant nano/micro materials and devices. Presenting recent research on wireless communication networks and Internet of Things, the book will prove useful to researchers, professionals and students working in the core areas of electronics and their applications, especially in signal processing, embedded systems and networking.
