The authors introduce the work of each part, which mainly includes a brief introduction (mainly for readers to understand) and academic discussion (rigorous theoretical and experimental support), in a vivid and interesting way through excellent pictures and literary compositions. To help readers learn and make progress together, each part of this book provides relevant literature, code, experimental data, and so on.
API Design for C++, Second Edition provides a comprehensive discussion of Application Programming Interface (API) development, from initial design through implementation, testing, documentation, release, versioning, maintenance, and deprecation. It is the only book that teaches the strategies of C++ API development, including interface design, versioning, scripting, and plug-in extensibility. Drawing from the author's experience on large scale, collaborative software projects, the text offers practical techniques of API design that produce robust code for the long-term. It presents patterns and practices that provide real value to individual developers as well as organizations.The Second Edition includes all new material fully updated for the latest versions of C++, including a new chapter on concurrency and multithreading, as well as a new chapter discussing how Objective C++ and C++ code can co-exist and how a C++ API can be accessed from Swift programs. In addition, it explores often overlooked issues, both technical and non-technical, contributing to successful design decisions that produce high quality, robust, and long-lived APIs. It focuses on various API styles and patterns that will allow you to produce elegant and durable libraries. A discussion on testing strategies concentrates on automated API testing techniques rather than attempting to include end-user application testing techniques such as GUI testing, system testing, or manual testing. Each concept is illustrated with extensive C++ code examples. Fully functional examples and working source code for experimentation are available online.
Advanced Calculus for Mathematical Modeling in Engineering and Physics: With Discrete and Numerical Analogies introduces the principles and methods of advanced calculus for mathematical modeling through a balance of theory and application using a state space approach with elementary functional analysis. This framework facilitates a deeper understanding of the nature of mathematical models, and of the behavior of their solutions. The work provides a variety of advanced calculus models for mathematical, physical science, and engineering audiences, with discussions on how calculus-based models and their discrete analogies are generated. This valuable textbook offers scientific computations driven by Octave/MATLAB script.

Bio-Inspired Strategies for Modeling and Detection in Diabetes Mellitus Treatment focuses on bioinspired techniques such as modeling to generate control algorithms for the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The book addresses the identification of diabetes mellitus using a high-order recurrent neural network trained by an extended Kalman filter. The authors also describe the use of metaheuristic algorithms for the parametric identification of compartmental models of diabetes mellitus widely used in research works such as the Sorensen model and the Dallaman model. In addition, the book addresses the modeling of time series for the prediction of risk scenarios such as hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia using deep neural networks. The detection of diabetes mellitus in the early stages or when current diagnostic techniques cannot detect glucose intolerance or prediabetes is proposed, carried out by means of deep neural networks present in the literature. Readers will find leading-edge research in diabetes identification based on discrete high-order neural networks trained with an extended Kalman filter; parametric identification of compartmental models used to describe diabetes mellitus; modeling of data obtained by continuous glucose-monitoring sensors for the prediction of risk scenarios such as hyperglycaemia and hypoglycaemia; and screening for glucose intolerance using glucose-tolerance test data and deep neural networks. Application of the proposed approaches is illustrated via simulation and real-time implementations for modeling, prediction, and classification.

Smart Spaces covers the latest concepts and technologies surrounding smart spaces, providing technical personnel engaged in smart space related research and industries a more in-depth understanding of smart spaces. This book can be used as a reference for practicing this emerging discipline, but it will also be useful for researchers, scientists, developers, practitioners, and graduate students working in the fields of smart spaces and artificial intelligence. It combines the study of working or living spaces with computing, information equipment, and multimodal sensing devices, and with natural and convenient interactive interfaces to support how people can easily obtain services from computer systems.People's work and life in smart spaces use computer systems; it is a process of uninterrupted interaction between people and the computer system. In this process, the computer is no longer just an information processing tool that passively executes explicit human operation commands but a collaborator with people to complete tasks – a partner to human beings. International research on smart spaces is quite extensive, which shows the important role of smart spaces in ubiquitous computing research.
