More Details..

This book addresses the algorithm analysis and VLSI architecture of video encoders, especially for high definition and scalable video coder. The three design challenges and related system issues of memory bandwidth (including system memory and internal memory), hardware area, and power consumption (required operating frequency) are all discussed.  With the high definition encoder, the authors focus on algorithm modification and design parallelism to provide high processing capability for the video encoder. Several corresponding hardware schedules are also included to cooperate with proposed architecture. For scalable video coding, the emphasis is placed not only on video algorithms, but also on hardware performance. The algorithm modification, data reuse schemes from frame-level to candidates-level, and architecture design contribute in the developing of three scalabilities and first MCTF hardware design.  Finally, the first SVC encoder chip for HDTV1080p is presented and all above design issues are considered together.

More Details..

This work, designed for clinicians, adopts a coordinated multidisciplinary approach to a range of topics central to complexity in medicine, with the aim of offering an integrated, unitary perspective that stands in contrast to the traditional simplification inherent in the subdivision into single specialties. It recognizes that medicine today has to face emerging issues that current knowledge cannot accommodate because the properties to be addressed do not simply equate to the sum of the properties of single components but rather are the product of interactions among them or among different environments. Examples include the interactions among genetic, environmental, pathological, psychological, and ethical aspects. This new model, represented by so-called systems medicine, entails a different approach, already reflected in, for instance, the view of cancer as a cellular ecosystem in evolution rather than a unique disease and the acknowledgment that future guidelines for cardiovascular prevention will have to consider many factors beyond blood pressure or cholesterol levels. It also recognizes the impact of other fields upon medicine, as in the crucial contributions of CERN to projects of great medical importance and of grid computing to genomics research. The Handbook of Complexity in Medicine offers stimulating insights into this new reality; it will provide readers with a tool for deepening their understanding of topics that even today remain somewhat unclear and will hopefully assist in decision making that takes into account this uncertainty.

More Details..

The second edition of this extensive work addresses the grand challenge for science and engineering today. It provides unprecedented, peer-reviewed coverage of sustainability science and technology with contributions from nearly 1,000 of the world’s leading scientists and engineers, who write on more than 600 separate topics in 42 sections. The Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology (ESST) establishes a foundation for the many sustainability and policy evaluations being performed in institutions worldwide.
An indispensable resource for scientists and engineers in developing new technologies and for applying existing technologies to sustainability, the ESST is presented at the university and professional level needed for scientists, engineers, and their students to support real progress in sustainability science and technology.
Although the emphasis is on science and technology rather than policy, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is also a comprehensive and authoritative resource for policy makers who want to understand the scope of research and development and how these bottom-up innovations map on to the sustainability challenge.

'Essential reading.' Bernice Lee, Chatham House 'Lays out the energy security landscape with a commendable clarity that I have not seen elsewhere. It could help save the world.' Science, People & Politics �Accessible and exciting ... [this] is the first truly objective examination of the relationship between resource scarcity, security and ecological destruction.� Neues Deutschland �Cuts through the confusion and complexity, clarifying the options for a sustainable energy future.� Dan Esty, Yale University Humanity stands at a threshold: will its shared energy future be peaceful, or will it be threatened by resource wars? How can rapidly depleting resources be managed to the advantage of all, and therefore conflicts averted? How can we avoid irreparable damage to the last areas of untouched natural beauty, all in the name of accessing valuable resources? And how do we arrive at an international energy policy which not only provides safe, economical energy without conflict, but also addresses the all-important issue of climate change: What is the best way to achieve greater energy security? Energy Security addresses all of these questions, arguing for an urgent overhaul of international law and institutions to control relations with countries such as Russia, which own the world�s remaining fuel supplies. The book presents alternatives to fossil fuels as two diametrically opposing strategies: the increased use of atomic energy; and a comprehensive climate protection policy with a focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy. In times of international terrorism, there are heightened concerns about nuclear proliferation, and Energy Security argues that the future must belong to renewable energy.

More Details..

Dynamics is increasingly being identified by consulting engineers as one of the key skills which needs to be taught in civil engineering degree programs. This is driven by the trend towards lighter, more vibration-prone structures, the growth of business in earthquake regions, the identification of new threats such as terrorist attack and the increased availability of sophisticated dynamic analysis tools.

Martin Williams presents this short, accessible introduction to the area of structural dynamics. He begins by describing dynamic systems and their representation for analytical purposes. The two main chapters deal with linear analysis of single (SDOF) and multi-degree-of-freedom (MDOF) systems, under free vibration and in response to a variety of forcing functions. Hand analysis of continuous systems is covered briefly to illustrate the key principles. Methods of calculation of non-linear dynamic response is also discussed. Lastly, the key principles of random vibration analysis are presented – this approach is crucial for wind engineering and is increasingly important for other load cases.

An appendix briefly summarizes relevant mathematical techniques. Extensive use is made of worked examples, mostly drawn from civil engineering (though not exclusively – there is considerable benefit to be gained from emphasizing the commonality with other branches of engineering). This introductory dynamics textbook is aimed at upper level civil engineering undergraduates and those starting an M.Sc. course in the area.

More Details..

Human error is cited over and over as a cause of incidents and accidents. The result is a widespread perception of a 'human error problem', and solutions are thought to lie in changing the people or their role in the system. For example, we should reduce the human role with more automation, or regiment human behavior by stricter monitoring, rules or procedures. But in practice, things have proved not to be this simple. The label 'human error' is prejudicial and hides much more than it reveals about how a system functions or malfunctions. This book takes you behind the human error label. Divided into five parts, it begins by summarising the most significant research results. Part 2 explores how systems thinking has radically changed our understanding of how accidents occur. Part 3 explains the role of cognitive system factors - bringing knowledge to bear, changing mindset as situations and priorities change, and managing goal conflicts - in operating safely at the sharp end of systems. Part 4 studies how the clumsy use of computer technology can increase the potential for erroneous actions and assessments in many different fields of practice. And Part 5 tells how the hindsight bias always enters into attributions of error, so that what we label human error actually is the result of a social and psychological judgment process by stakeholders in the system in question to focus on only a facet of a set of interacting contributors. If you think you have a human error problem, recognize that the label itself is no explanation and no guide to countermeasures. The potential for constructive change, for progress on safety, lies behind the human error label.

Human error is cited over and over as a cause of incidents and accidents. The result is a widespread perception of a 'human error problem', and solutions are thought to lie in changing the people or their role in the system. For example, we should reduce the human role with more automation, or regiment human behavior by stricter monitoring, rules or procedures. But in practice, things have proved not to be this simple. The label 'human error' is prejudicial and hides much more than it reveals about how a system functions or malfunctions. This book takes you behind the human error label. Divided into five parts, it begins by summarising the most significant research results. Part 2 explores how systems thinking has radically changed our understanding of how accidents occur. Part 3 explains the role of cognitive system factors - bringing knowledge to bear, changing mindset as situations and priorities change, and managing goal conflicts - in operating safely at the sharp end of systems. Part 4 studies how the clumsy use of computer technology can increase the potential for erroneous actions and assessments in many different fields of practice. And Part 5 tells how the hindsight bias always enters into attributions of error, so that what we label human error actually is the result of a social and psychological judgment process by stakeholders in the system in question to focus on only a facet of a set of interacting contributors. If you think you have a human error problem, recognize that the label itself is no explanation and no guide to countermeasures. The potential for constructive change, for progress on safety, lies behind the human error label.
