This book is the productof my research at the EndowedChair of Corporate Finance and Capital Markets at the European Business School. Many people devoted their inspiration, time, and knowledge in order to support me with my interdisciplinary research. Thank you all for your support. Especially, I thank my academic supervisor Prof. Ulrich Hommel, Ph.D., who provided me with the freedom to pursue my research interests and who always s- ported me generously. In addition, I am very grateful to my co-supervisor Prof. Dr. Susanne Strahringer (TU Dresden), who graciously accepted the task of refer- ing my book. Also, I thank Prof. Dr. Matthias Krause of the Chair for Theoretical Computer Science in Mannheim for the technical and computer scienti?c support. During my research visits I received generous support from Prof. Yaneer Bar- Yam (NECSI and Harvard) and Prof. John D. Sterman (MIT), who introduced me to the ?eld of System Dynamics and Complex Systems, as well as from Prof. Victor Mossotti (U.S. Geological Survey), Prof. Hiroki Sayama (NECSI and Bingh- ton), Prof. Markus de Aguiar (Universidade Estadual de Campinas), Prof. Michel Baranger (MIT), Prof. Jay W. Forrester (MIT), and Prof. Brian D. Josephson (Cambridge). Thank you very much for numerous inspiring discussions.


Domain Modeling-based Software Engineering

RRP $110.00

Many approaches have been proposed to enhance software productivity and reliability. These approaches typically fall into three categories: the engineering approach, the formal approach, and the knowledge-based approach. The optimal gain in software productivity cannot be obtained if one relies on only one of these approaches. Thus, the integration of different approaches has also become a major area of research.
No approach can be said to be perfect if it fails to satisfy the following two criteria. Firstly, a good approach should support the full life cycle of software development. Secondly, a good approach should support the development of large-scale software for real use in many application domains. Such an approach can be referred to as a five-in-one approach.
The authors of this book have, for the past eight years, conducted research in knowledge-based software engineering, of which the final goal is to develop a paradigm for software engineering which not only integrates the three approaches mentioned above, but also fulfils the two criteria on which the five-in-one approach is based. Domain Modeling- Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach explores the results of this research.
Domain Modeling-Based Software Engineering: A Formal Approach will be useful to researchers of knowledge-based software engineering, students and instructors of computer science, and software engineers who are working on large-scale projects of software development and want to use knowledge-based development methods in their work.

Among the first casebooks in the field, Software and Internet Law presents clear and incisive writing, milestone cases and legislation, and questions and problems that reflect the authors' extensive knowledge and classroom experience. Technical terms are defined in context to make the text accessible for students and professors with minimal background in technology, the software industry, or the Internet.

Always ahead of the curve, the Fourth Edition adds coverage and commentary on developing law, such as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's Safe Harbor, the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, and the Stored Communications Act.

Hard-wired features of Software and Internet Law include:

  • consistent focus on how lawyers service the software industry and the Internet
  • broad coverage of all aspects of U.S. software and internet law;with a focus on intellectual property, licensing, and cyberlaw

The Fourth Edition responds to this fast-changing field with coverage of :

  • the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's Safe Harbor
  • the Electronic Communications Privacy Act
  • the Stored Communications Act
  • Hot News; Misappropriation
  • Civil Uses of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act


Computer Design Of Diffractive Optics

RRP $1.00

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Diffractive optics involves the manipulation of light using diffractive optical elements (DOEs). DOEs are being widely applied in such areas as telecommunications, electronics, laser technologies and biomedical engineering. Computer design of diffractive optics provides an authoritative guide to the principles and applications of computer-designed diffractive optics.

The theoretical aspects underpinning diffractive optics are initially explored, including the main equations in diffraction theory and diffractive optical transformations. Application of electromagnetic field theory for calculating diffractive gratings and related methods in micro-optics are discussed, as is analysis of transverse modes of laser radiation and the formation of self-replicating multimode laser beams. Key applications of DOEs reviewed include geometrical optics approximation, scalar approximation and optical manipulation of micro objects, with additional consideration of multi-order DOEs and synthesis of DOEs on polycrystalline diamond films.

With its distinguished editor and respected team of expert contributors, Computer design of diffractive optics is a comprehensive reference tool for professionals and academics working in the field of optical engineering and photonics.

  • explores the theoretical aspects underpinning diffractive optics
  • discusses key applications of diffractive optical elements
  • a comprehensive reference for professionals and academics in optical engineering and photonics


Software Methods For Business Reengineering

RRP $326.99

It is said that business re-engineering is part of our transition to a post-industrial society. The purpose of this book is to present an approach to how to reorganize businesses using the discipline of software engineering as a guiding paradigm. The author's thesis is that software engineering provides the necessary analytical expertise for defining business processes and the tools to transform process descriptions to support systems.
The author begins by introducing the concepts and needs for business reengineering and principles and practice of software engineering. He then shows how by concentrating on processes, a business can define the information base required and how it is to be constructed. As a result, any manager or technically-minded person will learn how to implement the reengineering of a business.
