The future internet must integrate optical wired and wireless mobile networks to meet the demand for pervasive capacity. This volume examines a number of modifications to existing layered reference models that feature cross-layer design and optimization.
This book details the history of the computing applications, including the World Wide Web, that have been spurred on by the demands of high-energy physics experimentation such as that conducted at the CERN facility, and includes predictions for the future.
This new edition provides a comprehensive overview of emerging distributed-systems technologies and includes many state-of-the-art infrastructures and technologies. It also offers exercises and historical contexts for each of the technologies.
This 10th edited volume of the CoreGRID series is based on the 2008 CoreGRID Symposium, organized jointly with the Euro-Par 2008 conference, which seeks to strengthen and advance scientific and technological excellence in grid and peer-to-peer computing.
This book, one of the first of its kind, presents mechanisms, protocols, and system architectures needed to attain end-to-end Quality of Service over heterogeneous wired and wireless networks in the Internet.
Advances in wireless technologies are set to revolutionize the way we conduct business. This book offers complete coverage of the technologies needed to make wireless e-business effective. Written by internationally acclaimed authors the book is an ideal introduction for both self-study and taught e-business classes or commercial training courses.
Based on the 2008 workshop Managing Uncertainty and Competition through Dynamic Learning Networks, this book provides academics and company managers with an extended view of organizational learning networks from real cases and different perspectives.
This book studies algorithmic issues associated with cooperative execution of multiple independent tasks by distributed computing agents including partitionable networks. It is the first monograph that deals with do-all computing for distributed systems.
