Data Fusion Techniques and Applications for Smart Healthcare covers cutting-edge research from both academia and industry, with a particular emphasis on recent advances in algorithms and applications that involve combining multiple sources of medical information. The book can be used as a reference for practicing engineers, scientists, and researchers, but it will also be useful for graduate students and practitioners from government and industry as well as healthcare technology professionals working on state-of-the-art information fusion solutions for healthcare applications.Medical data exists in several formats, from structured data and medical reports to 1D signals, 2D images, 3D volumes, or even higher dimensional data such as temporal 3D sequences. Healthcare experts can make auscultation reports in text format; electrocardiograms can be printed in time series format, X-rays saved as images; volume can be provided through angiography; temporal information by echocardiograms, and 4D information extracted through flow MRI.
Sequences and the de Bruijn Graph: Properties, Constructions, and Applications explores the foundations of theoretical mathematical concepts and their important applications to computer science, electrical engineering, and bioinformatics. The book introduces the various concepts, ideas, and techniques associated with the use of the de Bruijn Graph, providing comprehensive coverage of sequence classification, one-dimensional and two-dimensional properties, constructions, and interconnection networks. This book is suitable for researchers, graduate students, professors, and professionals working in the fields of applied mathematics, electrical engineering, computer science, and bioinformatics.The de Bruijn graph was defined in 1946 to enumerate the number of closed sequences where each n-tuple appears exactly once as a window in a sequence. Through the years, the graph and its sequences have found numerous applications – in space technology, wireless communication, cryptography, parallel computation, genome assembly, DNA storage, and microbiome research, among others.
Computation and Modeling for Fractional Order Systems provides readers with problem-solving techniques for obtaining exact and/or approximate solutions of governing equations arising in fractional dynamical systems presented using various analytical, semi-analytical, and numerical methods. Various analytical/semi-analytical/numerical methods are applied for solving real-life fractional order problems. The comprehensive descriptions of different recently developed fractional singular, non-singular, fractal-fractional, and discrete fractional operators, along with computationally efficient methods, are included for the reader to understand how these may be applied to real-world systems, and a wide variety of dynamical systems such as deterministic, stochastic, continuous, and discrete are addressed.Fractional calculus has gained increasing popularity and relevance over the last few decades, due to its well-established applications in various fields of science and engineering. It deals with the differential and integral operators with non-integral powers. Fractional differential equations are the pillar of various systems occurring in a wide range of science and engineering disciplines, namely physics, chemical engineering, mathematical biology, financial mathematics, structural mechanics, control theory, circuit analysis, and biomechanics, among others.

Longitudinal Data Analysis, Volume 50 in the Handbook of Statistics series covers how data consists of a series of repeated observations of the same subjects over an extended time frame and is thus useful for measuring change. Such studies and the data arise in a variety of fields, such as health sciences, genomic studies, experimental physics, sociology, sports and student enrollment in universities. For example, in health studies, intra-subject correlation of responses must be accounted for, covariates vary with time, and bias can arise if patients drop out of the study.

Fractional Difference, Differential Equations, and Inclusions: Analysis and Stability is devoted to the existence and stability (Ulam-Hyers-Rassias stability and asymptotic stability) of solutions for several classes of functional fractional difference equations and inclusions. Covered equations include delay effects of finite, infinite, or state-dependent nature, and tools used to establish the existence results for the proposed problems include fixed point theorems, densifiability techniques, monotone iterative technique, notions of Ulam stability, attractivity and the measure of non-compactness, as well as the measure of weak noncompactness. The tools of fractional calculus are found to be of great utility in improving the mathematical modeling of many natural phenomena and processes occurring in the areas of engineering, social, natural, and biomedical sciences. All abstract results in the book are illustrated by examples in applied mathematics, engineering, biomedical, and other applied sciences.
The Essential Criteria of Graph Databases collects several truly innovative graph applications in asset-liability and liquidity risk management to spark readers’ interest and further broaden the reach and applicable domains of graph systems. Although AI has incredible potential, it has three weak links: 1. Blackbox, lack of explainability, 2. Silos, slews of siloed systems across the AI ecosystem, 3. Low-performance, as most of ML/DL based AI systems are SLOW. Hence, fixing these problems paves the road to strong and effective AI.
