Advances in Enterprise Engineering II: First NAF Academy by Erik Proper, Frank Harmsen, Jan L.G. Dietz

By Erik Proper, Frank Harmsen, Jan L.G. Dietz

This booklet constitutes the complaints of the 1st NAF Academy operating convention on Practice-Driven learn on firm Transformation, PRET 2009, held at CAiSE 2009, in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, on June eleven, 2009. The objective of this new occasion is to stimulate interplay among and academia within the region of company engineering, as this box calls for shut cooperation among the 2 communities.

The eleven papers awarded have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from 30 submissions. they supply functional insights and reviews of theories by way of reports from real-life perform, in addition to deciding upon practice-driven demanding situations for additional examine. the themes lined comprise firm structure, company technique administration, outsourcing, and IT governance.

Cancer and Energy Balance, Epidemiology and Overview by Rachel Ballard-Barbash, David Berrigan (auth.), Nathan A.

Cancer and Energy Balance, Epidemiology and Overview by Rachel Ballard-Barbash, David Berrigan (auth.), Nathan A.

By Rachel Ballard-Barbash, David Berrigan (auth.), Nathan A. Berger (eds.)

Energy stability and melanoma, Epidemiology and assessment is the 1st in a sequence of monographs to deal with the a number of elements of the realm extensive pandemic of obese and weight problems and its relation to melanoma. This quantity, authored by way of top specialists of their viewpoint fields, presents a extensive and finished assessment of the matter from the epidemiologic point of view with specialize in either common and distinct populations in addition to an outline of strength molecular mechanisms and reports of the newest reports of things impacting the organization of power stability and melanoma together with the consequences of genetics, caloric limit, workout, habit and the equipped environment.

The gathered chapters and the authors contributing to this preliminary quantity signify a transdisciplinary method of examine and strengthen novel methods to appreciate and resolve what, prior to now, is a globally refractory challenge. The ebook is written to be comprehensible and informative to participants from all involved disciplines. it may serve to orient scholars, investigators, nutritionists, public well-being officers, neighborhood planners, clinicians and coverage makers to the level of the matter, its a number of dimensions and capability techniques for study and corrective interventions.

PEM fuel cell electrocatalysts and catalyst layers: by Xiao-Zi Yuan, Haijiang Wang (auth.), Jiujun Zhang (eds.)

PEM fuel cell electrocatalysts and catalyst layers: by Xiao-Zi Yuan, Haijiang Wang (auth.), Jiujun Zhang (eds.)

By Xiao-Zi Yuan, Haijiang Wang (auth.), Jiujun Zhang (eds.)

Proton trade membrane (PEM) gasoline cells, together with H2/O2 (air) and methanol/O2 (air) gas cells, are promising fresh power changing units with excessive potency and occasional to 0 emissions. Such energy resources can be utilized in transportation, desk bound, moveable, and micro energy functions. the foremost elements of those gasoline cells are catalysts and catalyst layers.

PEM gasoline phone Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers covers the entire primary facets and functions of this box. the hole chapters introduce the fundamental themes on electrochemical concept and gas phone catalysis, together with: electrode thermodynamics, kinetics, and mass move; electrode/electrolyte interface electrocatalysis; electrocatalytic reactions, together with O2 reduction and H2/CH3OH oxidations; quantum chemistry simulations of catalyst task; catalyst infection; spectroscopic equipment for catalysis learn; porous gasoline electrode thought; and catalyst layers and modeling. Later chapters examine the synthesis, characterization, and task validation of PEM gas cellphone catalysts. All gasoline mobilephone comparable catalysts are reviewed, together with noble and non-noble catalysts and their preparation/performance. extra chapters describe intimately the mixing of the electrocatalyst/catalyst layers into the gas mobile, and their functionality validation, together with: catalyst layer constitution functionality and optimization, catalyst degradation and prognosis, and methods to mitigate the failure modes.

PEM gas telephone Electrocatalysts and Catalyst Layers offers a accomplished, in-depth survey of PEM gasoline phone electrocatalysts and catalyst layers, awarded through across the world popular gasoline phone scientists. Researchers and engineers within the gas telephone will locate this e-book a worthy source, as will scholars of electrochemical engineering and catalyst synthesis.

Agent-Oriented Software Engineering VII: 7th International by Scott A. DeLoach, Jorge L. Valenzuela (auth.), Lin Padgham,

Agent-Oriented Software Engineering VII: 7th International by Scott A. DeLoach, Jorge L. Valenzuela (auth.), Lin Padgham,

By Scott A. DeLoach, Jorge L. Valenzuela (auth.), Lin Padgham, Franco Zambonelli (eds.)

Software architectures that include many dynamically interacting parts, every one with their very own thread of regulate, and fascinating in complicated coordination protocols, are tricky to properly and successfully engineer. Agent-oriented modelling recommendations are very important for helping the layout and improvement of such purposes. This ebook offers a various and fascinating review of the paintings that's at the moment being undertaken by way of progressively more researchers and examine teams within the zone of Agent-Oriented software program Engineering. The papers current cutting edge study during this box, that is of serious significance in facilitating take-up of robust agent technologies.

This quantity constitutes the completely refereed post-proceedings of the seventh foreign Workshop on Agent-Oriented software program Engineering, AOSE 2006, held in Hakodate, Japan, in may perhaps 2006 as a part of AAMAS 2006. The thirteen revised complete papers have been conscientiously chosen from a variety of submissions in the course of rounds of reviewing and development and feature been complemented via invited papers from major researchers within the box. The papers are geared up in topical sections on modelling and layout of agent structures, modelling open agent platforms, formal reasoning approximately designs, in addition to checking out, debugging and evolvability.
