Introductory Differential Equations, Sixth Edition provides the foundations to assist students in learning not only how to read and understand differential equations, but also how to read technical material in more advanced texts as they progress through their studies. The book's accessible explanations and many robust sample problems are appropriate for a first semester course in introductory ordinary differential equations (including Laplace transforms), for a second course in Fourier series and boundary value problems, and for students with no background on the subject.
Handbook of Truly Concurrent Process Algebra provides readers with a detailed and in-depth explanation of the algebra used for concurrent computing. This complete handbook is divided into five Parts: Algebraic Theory for Reversible Computing, Probabilistic Process Algebra for True Concurrency, Actors – A Process Algebra-Based Approach, Secure Process Algebra, and Verification of Patterns. The author demonstrates actor models which are captured using the following characteristics: Concurrency, Asynchrony, Uniqueness, Concentration, Communication Dependency, Abstraction, and Persistence. Every pattern is detailed according to a regular format to be understood and utilized easily, which includes introduction to a pattern and its verifications.Patterns of the vertical domains are also provided, including the domains of networked objects and resource management. To help readers develop and implement the software patterns scientifically, the pattern languages are also presented.
Handbook of Whale Optimization Algorithm: Variants, Hybrids, Improvements, and Applications provides the most in-depth look at an emerging meta-heuristic that has been widely used in both science and industry. Whale Optimization Algorithm has been cited more than 5000 times in Google Scholar, thus solving optimization problems using this algorithm requires addressing a number of challenges including multiple objectives, constraints, binary decision variables, large-scale search space, dynamic objective function, and noisy parameters to name a few. This handbook provides readers with in-depth analysis of this algorithm and existing methods in the literature to cope with such challenges. The authors and editors also propose several improvements, variants and hybrids of this algorithm. Several applications are also covered to demonstrate the applicability of methods in this book.

Fundamentals of Data Science: Theory and Practice presents basic and advanced concepts in data science along with real-life applications. The book provides students, researchers and professionals at different levels a good understanding of the concepts of data science, machine learning, data mining and analytics. Users will find the authors’ research experiences and achievements in data science applications, along with in-depth discussions on topics that are essential for data science projects, including pre-processing, that is carried out before applying predictive and descriptive data analysis tasks and proximity measures for numeric, categorical and mixed-type data. The book's authors include a systematic presentation of many predictive and descriptive learning algorithms, including recent developments that have successfully handled large datasets with high accuracy. In addition, a number of descriptive learning tasks are included.
Optical Communications from a Fourier Perspective: Fourier Theory and Optical Fiber Devices and Systems covers Fourier theory and signal analysis over photonic components, including time lenses in optical communication. Sections cover wave propagation in optical waveguides based on Maxwell equations and the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. Optical Fourier transform in the form of time lens is covered, for example in modulation format conversion and spectrum magnification, and couplers and their use for optical discrete Fourier transformation are also discussed. Other important subjects are discussed such as shot noise, thermal noise and also the basics of four wave mixing in relation to time lenses. Detailed derivations and a deeper background for the chapters are provided in appendices where appropriate. Some of the theory is more generally applicable beyond optical communication and is of relevance also for communications engineering. The Fourier theory dimension of the book presents the relationship between Fourier series and Fourier integrals and also the related Laplace transform.

Picture Fuzzy Logic and Its Applications in Decision Making Problems provides methodological frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the field of picture fuzzy operators and their applications in scientific research and real-world engineering problems. In this book, picture fuzzy sets are investigated, and different types of operators are defined to solve a number of important decision-making and optimization problems. The hybrid operator on picture fuzzy set based on the combination of picture fuzzy weighted averaging operators and picture fuzzy weighted geometric operators is developed and named Hybrid Picture Fuzzy Weighted Averaging Geometric (H-PFWAG) operator. In addition, another operator is developed for interval-valued picture fuzzy environment, which is named Hybrid Interval-Valued Picture Fuzzy Weighted Averaging Geometric (H-IVPFWAG) operator. These two operators are then demonstrated as solutions to Multiple-Attribute Decision-Making (MADM) problems. The picture fuzzy soft weighted aggregation operators (averaging and geometric) are defined, and these are applied to develop a multi-criteria group decision making system.
