The purpose of this book is to provide updated status of the polymers that are clinical use and those that are now being developed for clinical use and hopefully will reach the clinic during the next 5 years. The book provides information that of interest to academics and practicing researchers including chemists, biologists and bioengineers and users: physicians, pharmacists.
System on Chip Interfaces for Low Power Designprovides a top-down understanding of interfaces available to SoC developers, not only the underlying protocols and architecture of each, but also how they interact and the tradeoffs involved. The book offers a common context to help understand the variety of available interfaces and make sense of technology from different vendors aligned with multiple standards. With particular emphasis on power as a factor, the authors explain how each interface performs in various usage scenarios and discuss their advantages and disadvantages. Readers learn to make educated decisions on what interfaces to use when designing systems and gain insight for innovating new/custom interfaces for a subsystem and their potential impact.Provides a top-down guide to SoC interfaces for memory, multimedia, sensors, display, and communicationExplores the underlying protocols and architecture of each interface with multiple examplesGuides through competing standards and explains how different interfaces might interact or interfere with each otherExplains challenges in system design, validation, debugging and their impact on development
If you are a developer who wants to use Drupal to enhance your website project and web application to manage content, this book is for you. Whether you are new to Drupal or an experienced web developer, you will be able to master both basic configuration and advanced module development in Drupal through this book.What You Will LearnSet up your Drupal development environmentBrush up on your understanding of the concepts of object-oriented programming, module development, and test-driven developmentInstall and configure Drupal, add new content type, and work through lot of dummy content to create listing pages using viewsEnhance the content author's user experience and custom blockFind out about field Type API and explore custom theme developmentManage various media types in Drupal for your content-rich websiteIn Detail
Drupal is one of the most popular platforms with which to develop websites. With more and more organizations looking to build engaging digital experience for their stakeholders, the Drupal Content Management System offers a mobile-first platform with native support for integrations, better performance, and scalability. The new version brings significant changes to its module development and theme creation techniques, improving performance and refining the development experience.
This book will help you develop your own website using Drupal 8 in a step-by-step manner. You'll start off by setting up your development environment, enabling you to begin writing custom code for a Drupal-powered website through PHPStorm. You will learn about configuration management and creating custom content types before exploring the HTML5 features included with Drupal 8.
You will then get familiar with Drupal 8's mobile-first features, explore the built-in WYSIWYG and in-line editing capabilities of Drupal 8, and enhance the overall authoring experience. Later, you will create and enhance a Media Entity Lightbox module, before taking an in-depth look at the Views module.
We then cover some advanced search concepts and walk you through the installation and integration of the Java-based Apache Solr search engine. Finally, you will explore and configure the built-in support for REST and extend its support by installing the RESTful module. By the end of the book, you will have created a recipe sharing website while gaining a solid understanding of development best practices for Drupal 8.Style and approach
Each chapter provides examples in a sequential manner from basic to advanced, and each example is explained using easy-to-understand language and a step-by-step approach. This programming experience will enable you to create a wide range of content authoring as well as end user experience.
This is assessed and evaluated via a standard case study: the cardiac pacemaker. Additionally a formalisation of an Electrocardiogram (ECG) is used to identify anomalies in order to improve existing medical protocols. This allows the key issue - that formal methods are not currently integrated into established critical systems development processes - to be discussed in a highly effective and informative way.
Using Event-B for Critical Device Software Systems serves as a valuable resource for researchers and students of formal methods. The assessment of critical systems development is applicable to all industries, but engineers and physicians from the health domain will find the cardiac pacemaker case study of particular value.
The main aim of the present book is to suggest some improved estimators using auxiliary and attribute information in case of simple random sampling and stratified random sampling and some inventory models related to capacity constraints.
This volume is a collection of five papers, written by six co-authors (listed in the order of the papers): Dr. Rajesh Singh, Dr. Sachin Malik, Dr. Florentin Smarandache, Dr. Neeraj Kumar, Mr. Sanjey Kumar & Pallavi Agarwal.
In the first chapter authors suggest an estimator using two auxiliary variables in stratified random sampling for estimating population mean.
In second chapter they proposed a family of estimators for estimating population means using known value of some population parameters.
In Chapter third an almost unbiased estimator using known value of some population parameter(s) with known population proportion of an auxiliary variable has been used.
In Chapter four the authors investigates a fuzzy economic order quantity model for two storage facility. The demand, holding cost, ordering cost, storage capacity of the own - warehouse are taken as trapezoidal fuzzy numbers.
In Chapter five a two-warehouse inventory model deals with deteriorating items, with stock
dependent demand rate and model affected by inflation under the pattern of time value of
money over a finite planning horizon. Shortages are allowed and partially backordered
depending on the waiting time for the next replenishment. The purpose of this model is to
minimize the total inventory cost by using the genetic algorithm.
This book will be helpful for the researchers and students who are working in the field of sampling techniques and inventory control.
