 Entrepreneurship: The Engine of Growth

Entrepreneurship: The Engine of Growth

Product Description
Entrepreneurship–”creativity plus ambition”–is credited for technological invention and the rise of corporate empires and directly linked to economic development around the world. This multi-volume set of original essays showcases emerging theory and practice in entrepreneurship to illuminate its many facets. From technology commercialization to new venture spinoffs, entrepreneurial personality characteristics to government policies in support of small business, these volumes cover the full spectrum of issues relating to entrepreneurship, including business models, entrepreneurial “mindset,” market research, capitalization, intellectual property, risk and uncertainty, and organizational culture. Volume 1, “People,” focuses on the intersection between individuals and entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on the cognitive, economic, social, and institutional factors that influence people’s behavior with respect to entrepreneurship. Volume 2, “Process,” explores such topics as idea generation, market entry, financing, team building, and growth strategies, following the lifecycle of a new venture. Volume 3, “Place,” considers the context in which entrepreneurship is practiced, including corporate venturing, family enterprise, franchising, and public policies designed to promote entrepreneurship and economic development. Featuring contributions from leading scholars and practitioners, and with a global perspective throughout, this unique set illuminates the dynamic role that entrepreneurship plays in promoting knowledge and economic opportunity, exploring new models, trends, and practices in entrepreneurship that will be of interest to a wide array of academics, professionals, and newcomers to the field.

Practical Embedded Security: Building Secure Resource-Constrained Systems

Product Description
The great strides made over the last decade in the complexity and network functionality of embedded systems have significantly enhanced their attractiveness for use in critical applications such as medical devices and military communications. However, this expansion into critical areas has presented embedded engineers with a serious new problem: their designs are now being targeted by the same malicious attackers whose predations have plagued traditional systems for years. Rising concerns about data security in embedded devices are leading engineers to pay more attention to security assurance in their designs than ever before. This is particularly challenging due to embedded devices’ inherent resource constraints such as limited power and memory. Therefore, traditional security solutions must be customized to fit their profile, and entirely new security concepts must be explored. However, there are few resources available to help engineers understand how to implement security measures within the unique embedded context. This new book from embedded security expert Timothy Stapko is the first to provide engineers with a comprehensive guide to this pivotal topic. From a brief review of basic security concepts, through clear explanations of complex issues such as choosing the best cryptographic algorithms for embedded utilization, the reader is provided with all the information needed to successfully produce safe, secure embedded devices.

.The ONLY book dedicated to a comprehensive coverage of embedded security!
.Covers both hardware and software-based embedded security solutions for preventing and dealing with attacks
.Application case studies support practical explanations of all key topics, including network protocols, wireless and cellular communications, languages (Java and C/++), compilers, web-based interfaces, cryptography, and an entire section on SSL

 Introduction to Scientific Visualization

Introduction to Scientific Visualization

Product Description
This is a 'how to' book for scientific visualization. An introduction on the philosophy of the subject sets the scene, showing why visualization works and what to aim for when presenting scientific data visually – different software architectures for visualization are covered briefly. The theory of colour perception and its value and use for conveying information about data is introduced. Next, using Brodlie's taxonomy to underpin its core chapters, it is shown how to classify data, choose a technique that's appropriate for its visualization, and alerts the reader to some of the pitfalls. Worked examples are given throughout the text and there are practical 'sidebars' – virtual laboratory classes for those readers with access to the IRIS Explorer software who can try out the demonstrations on an accompanying website. The book concludes with a 'taster' of ongoing research, including the move towards large-scale displays, visualization for computational steering and collaborative visualization.


Code Optimization: Effective Memory Usage [ILLUSTRATED]

Posted: 12 Aug 2009 02:34 AM PDT

A guide to optimizing programs on the PC and Unix platforms, this book covers the expediency of optimization and the methods to increase the speed of programs via optimization. Discussed are typical mistakes made by programmers that lessen the performance of the system along with easily implemented solutions. Detailed descriptions of the devices and mechanism of interaction of the computer components, effective ways of programming, and a technique for optimizing programs, are provided. Programmers will also learn how to effectively implement programming methods in a high-level language that is usually done in assembler with particular attention given to the RAM subsystem. The working principles of the RAM and the way in which it is coupled with the processor as well as a description of programming methods that allows programmers to overclock the memory to reach maximum performance are included.

Hacking Ebooks Series

Posted: 12 Aug 2009 02:12 AM PDT

Hack has several related meanings in the technology and computer science fields. It may refer to a clever or quick fix to a computer program problem, or to what may be perceived to be a clumsy or inelegant (but usually relatively quick) solution to a problem. The term is also used to refer to a modification of a program or device to give the user access to features that were otherwise unavailable, such as DIY circuit bending.

Multiplexed Networks for Embedded Systems: CAN, LIN, FlexRay, Safe-by-Wire…

Product Description
Multiplexed networks are essential for the unified, efficient and cost-effective exchange of electronic information within embedded component systems. This is especially important in automotive manufacturing as vehicles become increasingly reliant on robust electronic networks and systems for improved reliability, anti-lock brake systems (ABS), steering, on-board navigation systems, and much more. The latest systems such as X-by-Wire and FlexRay aim to produce faster, fault-tolerant network component interconnects, for state-of-the-art network implementation and safer, more reliable engineering of vehicular systems.


The Modern Algebra of Information Retrieval

Posted: 11 Aug 2009 08:47 PM PDT

 The Modern Algebra of Information Retrieval

The Modern Algebra of Information Retrieval

Product Description
This book takes a unique approach to information retrieval by laying down the foundations for a modern algebra of information retrieval based on lattice theory. All major retrieval methods developed so far are described in detail – Boolean, Vector Space and probabilistic methods, but also Web retrieval algorithms like PageRank, HITS, and SALSA – and the author shows that they all can be treated elegantly in a unified formal way, using lattice theory as the one basic concept. Further, he also demonstrates that the lattice-based approach to information retrieval allows us to formulate new retrieval methods. Sandor Dominich’s presentation is characterized by an engineering-like approach, describing all methods and technologies with as much mathematics as needed for clarity and exactness. His readers in both computer science and mathematics will learn how one single concept can be used to understand the most important retrieval methods, to propose new ones, and also to gain new insights into retrieval modeling in general. Thus, his book is appropriate for researchers and graduate students, who will additionally benefit from the many exercises at the end of each chapter.
