Performance Analysis of Broadcast Schemes in MANET
Exploratory Data Analysis Using Fisher Information
This book analyzes unexpected preference query results for three problems: causality and responsibility problems, why-not and why questions, and why-few and why-many questions. Further, it refines preference queries and discusses how to modify the original preference query based on different objectives, in order to obtain satisfying results. This highly informative and carefully presented book provides valuable insights for researchers, postgraduates and practitioners with an interest in database usability.
