This book details both the basic concepts of software performance analysis and state-of-the-art methodologies. It starts from performance primers and goes through software and performance modeling notations to the latest transformation-based methodologies.
This book offers a comprehensive guide to model-based engineering of embedded systems, with sections titled Starting Point, SPES Modeling Theory, Application and Evaluation of the SPES Methodology and Impact of the SPES Methodology.
This book details how to use model-driven engineering for ontology development on the Semantic Web. It explains in detail how to use standards like MDA and UML for ontology development and offers the first detailed description of OMG’s upcoming ODM standard.
This book explains how to use standards like MDA and UML for ontology development. It provides the first detailed description of OMG’s upcoming ODM (Ontology Definition Metamodel) standard and fills a gap by covering the subject of MDA application for ontology development on the Semantic Web.
This book provides a comprehensive analysis of meta-programming, focusing on insights of meta-programming techniques, heterogeneous meta-program development processes in the context of model-driven, feature-based and transformative approaches.
This book describes the principles of model building in financial engineering. It explains those models as designs and working implementations for Java-based applications. It is the first book to cover Java implementations for finance/investment applications.
