This volume contains papers presented at the Fourth International Workshop on Mathematical Methods, Models and Architectures for Computer Network Security (MMM-ACNS 2007) held in St. Petersburg, Russia, during September 13–15, 2007. The workshop was organized by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS) in cooperation with Binghamton University (SUNY, USA). The organizers are proud that the MMM-ACNS workshops hosted by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation in 2001, 2003 and 2005 evolved into a bi-annual series recognized in the professional community. These events not only demonstrated the keen interest of the participating researchers in the subject matter and the opportunity to present and disseminate individual achievements, but also promoted the spirit of cooperation, camaraderie, free exchange of ideas, and intellectually stimulating interaction between colleagues. Again, MMM-ACNS 2007 provided an international forum for sharing or- inal research results among specialists in fundamental and applied problems of computer network security. An important distinction of the conference was its focus on mathematical aspects of information and computer network security addressing the ever-increasing demands for secure computing and highly - pendable computer networks. A total of 56 papers from 18 countries related to signi?cant aspects of both theory and applications ofcomputer networkand informationsecurity weres- mitted to MMM-ACNS 2007. In total, 18 papers were selected for regular p- sentationsand 12 for short presentations(32 % of acceptance for full papers and 53 % for all papers).
The prominence of the Bupleurum species cannot be overstated. Across China and Japan, it serves as a main or supplementary ingredient in over two thirds of traditional medications. For over 2000 years, it has been used to treat fevers, intestinal maladies, malaria, and countless other afflictions. Modern research indicates that it may possess anti-tumor qualities, and researchers continue to report its impact on a wide range of ailments, from hepatitis and epilepsy, to irregularity and menopause, as well as psychosis and schizophrenia.

Bupleurum Species: Scientific Evaluation and Clinical Applications brings together the work of leading researchers from Asia and Europe who examine this remarkable genus of plants. Providing a comprehensive look at all aspects relevant to the species, this historic volume-
q Examines the botany of the species, including detailed descriptions of the plant parts used in medicine
q Discusses cultivation worldwide, looking at how environmental factors influence plant content
q Details its chemistry and biology, covering plants in Asia, as well as Spain and Italy
q Explores what is currently understood about its pharmacology
q Looks at its effectiveness in clinical applications, including a summary of recent findings on its use as a treatment for septic shock
q Provides the most complete compendium available on patents containing Bupleurum, listing over 500, and detailing each one's application and inventor

Edited by the renowned Sheng-Li Pan, who has discovered six new species of Bupleurum, this important work should be considered required reading for those who wish to explore the properties of this remarkable natural product, along with its proven and potential applications. It has also been effectively organized as a reference for those involved with the application and research of natural products, as well as botanists and those employed with drug discovery and development.
With the advantages of high strength, lightweight, no corrosion and excellent fatigue resistance, Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) cables have the potential to replace steel cables in a broad range of applications. The ideal structures for such cables are highly pre-tensioned cable systems that are loaded orthogonally to their cable axes. This type of structures with CFRP cables, such as cable net facades, spoked wheel cable roofs and stressed-ribbon bridges, can be built economically with large or small spans.

This book is the first in the world to demonstrate the advantages of using CFRP cables in orthogonally loaded cable structures, including detailed analyses of mechanical properties and economic efficiencies. Furthermore, in order to solve the anchorage problem which hinders the application of CFRP cables, two new CFRP cable anchorages, especially suitable for orthogonally loaded cable structures, are proposed in this book. In addition, a prototype of CFRP spoked wheel cable roof built by the author is presented to show the feasibility of CFRP orthogonally loaded cable structures based on the present technology; a novel design, i.e. the CFRP Continuous Band Winding System, is also conceptually introduced, so as to show a feasible form of CFRP orthogonally loaded cable structures in the future.

This book is written to encourage the use of CFRP cables and show that CFRP cable structures are feasible and have advantages over steel cable structures. It will be read by researchers of structural engineering and by consulting engineers.
