Network Design And Optimization For Smart Cities

English | 2017 | ISBN: 9813200006 | 404 Pages | ePUB | 19 MB

This comprehensive reference text is a collection of important research findings on the latest developments in network modeling for optimization of smart cities. Such models can be used from outlining the fundamental concepts of urban development to the description and optimization of physical networks, such as power, water or telecommunications. Networks help us understand city economics and various aspects of human interactions within cities with particular applications in quality of life and the flow of people and goods. Finally, the natural environment and even the climate of cities can be modeled and managed as networks.
This book’s title “Networks Design and Optimization for Smart Cities” highlights the focus areas in the broad theme of smart cities:
– it contains discussions about networked applications, not individual or isolated solutions and discusses complex case of integration,
– it discusses how to systematically design the functions of smart cities and behind it establish intelligence in the form of optimization methodologies,
– it presents real world applications that can be used to exemplify further developments.
The book encompasses a broad spectrum of applications aspiring to cover most of the functional aspects of a modern city:
– Network Models for City Economics and Integrated Urban Management
– Network Optimization and Integration for Utilities: Power, Water, Waste and Telecommunications
– Flow of Goods and People in Urban Networks
– Social Networking and Urban Nexus in Smart Cities
– Networks in Environmental Design and Urban Planning of Green Cities
– Understanding and Modeling Modern Cities as Networks.

by Boris Lazarevich Ioffe (Author)
This book is a collection of personal memories about the people who participated in the USSR atomic project — Landau, Alikhanov, Pomeranchuk, Alikhanian, Migdal Jr., Gribov, Zeldovich, Sakharov, Kurchatov, Vannikov, Eldian. As the author is the only living person who was involved in the project, these personal recollections are interesting and unique for a broad audience who has been unfamiliar with the details so far.

Circuit Cavity QED with Macroscopic Solid-State Spin Ensembles (Springer Theses) by Stefan Putz

English | 27 Oct. 2017 | ISBN: 3319664468 | 144 Pages | PDF | 10.92 MB

This thesis combines quantum electrical engineering with electron spin resonance, with an emphasis on unraveling emerging collective spin phenomena. The presented experiments, with first demonstrations of the cavity protection effect, spectral hole burning and bistability in microwave photonics, cover new ground in the field of hybrid quantum systems. The thesis starts at a basic level, explaining the nature of collective effects in great detail. It develops the concept of Dicke states spin-by-spin, and introduces it to circuit quantum electrodynamics (QED), applying it to a strongly coupled hybrid quantum system studied in a broad regime of several different scenarios. It also provides experimental demonstrations including strong coupling, Rabi oscillations, nonlinear dynamics, the cavity protection effect, spectral hole burning, amplitude bistability and spin echo spectroscopy.

The Energy of Physics Part II: Electricity and Magnetism by Christopher J. Fischer

English | 2016 | ISBN: 1631898566 | 558 pages | PDF | 6,4 MB

The Energy of Physics Part II: Electricity and Magnetism steps away from the traditional chronological organization of material and instead groups similar topics together, thus enabling students to better understand potentials and fields and the relationship between electricity and magnetism.
In the first section of the text, the concepts of potential and field are introduced in the context of gravitational, electric, and magnetic interactions. The second section discusses how electric and magnetic interactions influence each other as well as the electric and magnetic properties of material. The final section focuses on applications of electric and magnetic interactions to electric circuits and optics. Appendices provide additional support in applied mathematics, derivations of key equations, further discussion of select examples, and more that students can refer to throughout the book.
Written for the second semester of a two-semester, calculus-based physics curriculum The Energy of Physics, Part II builds on the energy-based approach to classical mechanics presented in Part I and has the similar goal of helping students develop their applied mathematics skills. The book can be used in any calculus-based introductory electricity and magnetism course, and is particularly suited to classes in the physical sciences, engineering, and mathematics.
Christopher J. Fischer holds a Ph.D. in applied physics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. An associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kansas, Lawrence, Dr. Fischer also serves as associate chair and director of undergraduate studies. He has been extensively involved in curriculum development, including the redesign of the university’s introductory calculus-based sequence. Dr. Fischer’s research focuses on biophysics with an emphasis on understanding the function of molecular motors, particularly those that manipulate DNA structure.
