Design and Implementation of Practical Schedulers for M2M Uplink Networks: Using MATLAB

Design and Implementation of Practical Schedulers for M2M Uplink Networks: Using MATLAB By Akshay Kumar
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 222 Pages | ISBN : 3319780808 | 4.15 MB

This book presents the design of delay-efficient packet schedulers for heterogeneous M2M uplink traffic classified into several classes, based on packet delay requirements, payload size, arrival process, etc. Specifically, the authors use tools from queuing theory to determine the delay-optimal scheduling policy. The proposed packet schedulers are designed for a generic M2M architecture and thus equally applicable to any M2M application.

Bioactive Polysaccharide Materials for Modern Wound Healing

Bioactive Polysaccharide Materials for Modern Wound Healing By Tina Maver
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 105 Pages | ISBN : 3319896075 | 6.28 MB

This is the first concise book that includes different aspects of naturally-derived components for wound healing. It presents the first exhaustive review of modern techniques in wound dressing development. With a growing, ageing population and the rapid growth of the wound-care market, the authors explore the current trend of bio-based products (active components and host materials) in this field. After a short introduction into modern solutions in wound-care and modern techniques in wound-dressing development, the authors, leaders in the field, explore natural-based components (drugs, extracts, materials etc.); safety and efficiency assessments (biocompatibility, cytotoxicity and in vitro performance etc.); and model films as a platform for the development of new wound dressings.

Dividendenpolitik der Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken: Eine Analyse im Zuge der Niedrigzinspolitik der Europäischen Zentralbank

Dividendenpolitik der Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken: Eine Analyse im Zuge der Niedrigzinspolitik der Europäischen Zentralbank By Markus Meyer
German | PDF | 2018 | 155 Pages | ISBN : N/A | 2.97 MB

Auf Basis einer empirischen Untersuchung von Jahresabschlüssen der Jahre 2006 bis 2015 von 250 Volks- und Raiffeisenbanken analysiert Markus Meyer Determinanten der Dividendenpolitik und zeigt deren Bedeutung als Element der Mitgliederförderung auf. Dabei werden wichtige Einflussfaktoren identifiziert: Dividendenkontinuität, Erfolgskennzahlen und die langfristige Zinsentwicklung. Weiterhin untersucht der Autor die Abhängigkeit bezüglich der Betriebsgröße anhand der Bilanzsumme und die Dividendenentwicklung bei Fusionen der genossenschaftlichen Institute.

Konzepte der Funktionentheorie: Reelle und komplexe Analysis einer Variablen

Konzepte der Funktionentheorie: Reelle und komplexe Analysis einer Variablen By Jürgen Müller
German | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 332 Pages | ISBN : 3662562596 | 8.46 MB

In diesem Lehrbuch wird ein direkter Weg von der reellen Analysis einer Variablen in die Funktionentheorie aufgezeigt. Dabei werden schon klassische Themen der eindimensionalen reellen Analysis (wie die Differenzial- und Integralrechnung) weitgehend aus komplexer Sichtweise dargestellt. Das Ziel ist eine in sich geschlossene Darstellung bis hin zu den Rungesätzen und der Dynamik ganzer Funktionen. Den einzelnen Kapiteln angehängte kurze Abschnitte über Konzepte der Funktionentheorie geben Ausblicke auch in die höherdimensionale Analysis sowie einen Eindruck von deren universeller Bedeutung für die Mathematik. Das Buch ist so aufgebaut, dass Teile auch als Grundlage für ein Seminar genutzt werden können.

Morphogenesis of the Sign, Second Edition

Morphogenesis of the Sign, Second Edition By David Piotrowski
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 304 Pages | ISBN : 3319898477 | 6.79 MB

This book develops a morphodynamical approach to linguistic and sign structures as an integrated response to multilevel and interrelated problems in semiolinguistic research. More broadly, the content is linked to the realities of living speech through a connection (via the concept of diacriticity) with the Merleau-Pontian phenomenology, and beyond the formal determinations of a semiolinguistic system and its calculus. Such problems are mainly epistemological (concerning the nature and legitimate scope of semiolinguistic knowledge), empirical (concerning the observational device and the data’s composition), and theoretical (regarding the choice of a conceptual and formalized explicative frame).

Forms, Matter and Mind: Three Strands in Plato’s Metaphysics

Forms, Matter and Mind: Three Strands in Plato’s Metaphysics

Forms, Matter and Mind: Three Strands in Plato’s Metaphysics By Erik Nis Ostenfeld
English | PDF,EPUB | 1982 | 348 Pages | ISBN : 9400976836 | 34.31 MB

The present work is an attempt to analyse critically Plato's views on mind and body and more particularly on the mind-body relationship within the wider setting of Plato's metaphysics. We seek to achieve this by a philosophical examination"-of the dialogues on the basis of a generally accepted order (some revision of this order is a by-product of our examination). Strictly speaking "soul" ought perhaps to be substituted for "mind" in the above. But it seems to be in terms of "mind" that modern philosophers deal with and refer to the problem that Plato tackled (mainly) in terms of psyche, and as it is part of the motivation for dealing with Plato's treatment that it is of importance for the modern debate, it has been felt necessary to stress the rough identity* of the problem in the title of the book (and in the Introduction, in the title of Part Three and a few other places). Below this superordinate level we try to keep "mind" as a translation typically of nous and "soul" as a translation of psyche.

Topics in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics: Atmospheric Dynamics, Dynamo Theory, and Climate Dynamics By M. Ghil
English | PDF | 1987 | 505 Pages | ISBN : 0387964754 | 19.73 MB

The vigorous stirring of a cup of tea gives rise, as we all know, to interesting fluid dynamical phenomena, some of which are very hard to explain. In this book our "cup of tea" contains the currents of the Earth's atmosphere, oceans, mantle, and fluid core. Our goal is to under­ stand the basic physical processes which are most important in describing what we observe, directly or indirectly, in these complex systems.
