This brief provides a complete yet concise description of modern dive computers and their operations to date in one source with coupled applications for added understanding. Basic diving principles are detailed with practical computer implementations. Interrelated topics to diving protocols and operational procedures are included. Tests, statistics and correlations of computer models with data are underscored. The exposition also links phase mechanics to dissolved gases in modern decompression theory with mathematical relationships and equations used in dive computer synthesis. Applications focus upon and mimic dive computer operations within model implementations for added understanding. This comprehensive resource includes a complete list of dive computers that are marketed and their staging models, as well as a complete list of diveware marketed and their staging algorithms, linkage of pertinent wet and dry tests to modern computer algorithms, a description of two basic computer models with all constants and parameters, mathematical ansatz of on-the-fly risk for surfacing at any dive depth, detailing of statistical techniques used to validate dive computers from data, and a description of profile Data Banks for computer dive model correlations. The book will find an audience amongst computer scientists, doctors, underwater researchers, engineers, physical and biosciences diving professionals, explorers, chamber technicians, physiologists and technical and recreational divers.
Continuous Delivery shows how tocreate fully automated, repeatable, and reliable processes for rapidly moving changes through build, deploy, test, and release. Using these techniques, software organizations are getting critical fixes and other new releases into production in hours - sometimes even minutes - evenin large projects with complex code bases. Jez Humble and David Farley begin by presenting the high-level principles and practices required to succeed with regular, repeatable, low-risk releases. Next, they introduce the ´´deployment pipeline,´´ an automated process for managing all changes, from check-in to release. Finally, they discuss the ´´ecosystem´´ needed to support deployment pipelines, from infrastructure to data management and governance. The authors introduce many state-of-the-art techniques, including in-production monitoring and tracing, dependency management, and the use of virtualization. For each, they review key issues, demonstrate how to mitigate risks, and identify best practices. Coverage includes · Overcoming ´´anti-patterns´´ that slow down releases and reduce quality · Automating all facets of configuration management and testing · Implementing deployment pipelines at team and organizational levels · Scripting highly-effective automated build and deployment processes · Triggering automated processes whenever a change is made · Automating acceptance testing, from analysis to implementation · Testing capacity and other non-functional requirements · Utilizing continuous deployment, rollbacks, and zero-downtime releases · Managing infrastructure, data, components, dependencies, and versions · Navigating risk management, compliance, and other obstacles Whether you´re a developer, architect, tester, or manager, this book will help you move from idea to release faster than ever - so you can deliver far more value, far more rapidly.

Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is an edited volume based on the Quality of Protection Workshop in Milano, Italy (September 2005). This volume discusses how security research can progress towards quality of protection in security comparable to quality of service in networking and software measurements, and metrics in empirical software engineering. Information security in the business setting has matured in the last few decades. Standards such as IS017799, the Common Criteria (ISO15408), and a number of industry certifications and risk analysis methodologies have raised the bar for good security solutions from a business perspective. Designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry, Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is also suitable for advanced-level students in computer science. Information security in the business setting has matured in the last few decades. Standards, such as IS017799, the Common Criteria s, and a number of industry and academic certifications and risk analysis methodologies, have raised the bar on what is considered good security solution, from a business perspective. Yet, the evaluation of security solutions has largely a qualitative flavor. Notions such as Security Metrics, Quality of Protection (QoP) or Protection Level Agreement (PLA) have only surfaced in the literature. Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is an edited volume based on the Quality of Protection Workshop at ESORICS 2005, the flagship European Symposium on Research in Computer Security. This book discusses how security research can progress towards a notion of quality of protection in security, comparable to the notion of quality of service in networking and software measurements and metrics, in empirical software engineering. Quality of Protection: Security Measurements and Metrics is designed for a professional audience, composed of researchers and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science and telecommunications.
This book addresses the basics of interval/fuzzy set theory, artificial neural networks (ANN) and computational methods. It presents step-by-step modeling for application problems along with simulation and numerical solutions. In general, every science and engineering problem is inherently biased by uncertainty, and there is often a need to model, solve and interpret problems in the world of uncertainty. At the same time, exact information about models and parameters of practical applications is usually not known and precise values do not exist. This book discusses uncertainty in both data and models. It consists of seven chapters covering various aspects of fuzzy uncertainty in application problems, such as shallow water wave equations, static structural problems, robotics, radon diffusion in soil, risk of invasive alien species and air quality quantification. These problems are handled by means of advanced computational and fuzzy theory along with machine intelligence when the uncertainties involved are fuzzy. The proposed computational methods offer new fuzzy computing methods that help other areas of knowledge construction where inexact information is present.
Founder and bestselling author Alan Cooper contributes the Foreword to this much-anticipated hands-on guide, and the masters of design at Cooper offer unparalleled insight on designing web sites, software, handhelds, and all other interactive products from start to finish. You'll discover proven methods developed by leading interaction design consultancy Cooper, while the book focuses on process and work practices, rather than on the principles. Topics covered include creating personas, evolving the visual design, collaborating within and outside of the design team, understanding potential users and customers, and more. Whether you´re designing consumer electronics, medical devices, enterprise Web apps, or new ways to check out at the supermarket, today´s digitally-enabled products and services provide both great opportunities to deliver compelling user experiences and great risks of driving your customers crazy with complicated, confusing technology. Designing successful products and services in the digital age requires a multi-disciplinary team with expertise in interaction design, visual design, industrial design, and other disciplines. It also takes the ability to come up with the big ideas that make a desirable product or service, as well as the skill and perseverance to execute on the thousand small ideas that get your design into the hands of users. It requires expertise in project management, user research, and consensus-building. This comprehensive, full-color volume addresses all of these and more with detailed how-to information, real-life examples, and exercises. Topics include assembling a design team, planning and conducting user research, analyzing your data and turning it into personas, using scenarios to drive requirements definition and design, collaborating in design meetings, evaluating and iterating your design, and documenting finished design in a way that works for engineers and stakeholders alike.
