Evolutionary Algorithms for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

Free sample

Describes how evolutionary algorithms (EAs) can be used to identify, model, and minimize day-to-day problems that arise for researchers in optimization and mobile networking

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs), vehicular networks (VANETs), sensor networks (SNs), and hybrid networks—each of these require a designer’s keen sense and knowledge of evolutionary algorithms in order to help with the common issues that plague professionals involved in optimization and mobile networking.

This book introduces readers to both mobile ad hoc networks and evolutionary algorithms, presenting basic concepts as well as detailed descriptions of each. It demonstrates how metaheuristics and evolutionary algorithms (EAs) can be used to help provide low-cost operations in the optimization process—allowing designers to put some “intelligence” or sophistication into the design. It also offers efficient and accurate information on dissemination algorithms, topology management, and mobility models to address challenges in the field.

Evolutionary Algorithms for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks:

  • Instructs on how to identify, model, and optimize solutions to problems that arise in daily research
  • Presents complete and up-to-date surveys on topics like network and mobility simulators
  • Provides sample problems along with solutions/descriptions used to solve each, with performance comparisons
  • Covers current, relevant issues in mobile networks, like energy use, broadcasting performance, device mobility, and more

Evolutionary Algorithms for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks is an ideal book for researchers and students involved in mobile networks, optimization, advanced search techniques, and multi-objective optimization.

One of the most challenging issues for the intelligent decision systems is to effectively manage the large-scale complex distributed environments such as computational clouds, grids, ad hoc and P2P networks, under the different types of users, their relations, and real-world uncertainties. In this context the IT resources and services usually belong to different owners (institutions, enterprises, or individuals) and are managed by different administrators. These administrators conform to different sets of rules and configuration directives, and can impose different usage policies on the system users. Additionally, uncertainties are presented in various types of information that are incomplete, imprecise, fragmentary or overloading, which hinders the full and precise determination of the evaluation criteria, their subsequent and selection, the assignment scores, and eventually the final integrated decision result.

This book presents new ideas, analysis, implementations and evaluation of the next generation intelligent techniques for solving complex decision problems in large-scale distributed systems. In 15 chapters several important formulations of the decision problems in heterogeneous environments are identified and a review of the recent approaches, from game theoretical models and computational intelligent techniques, such as genetic, memetic and evolutionary algorithms, to intelligent multi-agent systems and networking are presented. We believe that this volume will serve as a reference for the students, researchers and industry practitioners working in or are interested in joining interdisciplinary works in the areas of intelligent decision systems using emergent distributed computing paradigms. It will also allow newcomers to grasp key concerns and potential solutions on the selected topics.

La ragazza immigrata
Di Patricia Ruiz Steele
Era il 1911. Una storia di immigrazione spagnola raccontata attraverso gli occhi di una bambina di 9 anni.
Era il 1911. Hanno lasciato tutto quello che conoscevano — a volte anche tutti quelli che amavano — per iniziare una nuova vita in un paese lontano chiamato Hawaii e poi in America. La loro storia di immigrazione è epica, piena di tragedia, trionfo, avversità e amore. Allontanamento e promesse. Studiare la storia spagnola e le massicce risorse sull'immigrazione la hanno aiutata a dipingere un ritratto ricco di persone che sono venuti qui e della vita che hanno creato. Questa è la loro storia di immigrazione.
Manuela, la figlia maggiore di una famiglia povera di Fuentesaúco, nella provincia di Zamora, nel nord della Spagna, che prende la strada verso sud in direzione La Linea presso la Rocca di Gibilterra e la nave degli immigrati, l'ss Orteric con la sua famiglia allargata. Eccitata, ma spaventata, attende l'avventura, Hawaii e da lì, l'America, la terra promessa. Sebbene riluttante a lasciare la nonna, lei si adatta alla vita sulla nave, l'SS Orteric, ma desidera tornare sulla terra. Mentre eventi storici reali spostano la trama, influenzano i suoi pensieri, la maturità e il futuro.
Questa è la vita della nonna dell'autore in cui si rivivono la Spagna e le Hawaii. È un racconto toccante sull'importanza della famiglia e sui legami culturali in cui si impara a bilanciare i valori del vecchio mondo con la promessa del sogno americano.
