This work concentrates on application of nature inspired meta-heuristic algorithms for graph based problems for optimization. The applications are concentrated on multi-objective formulation and coordinated swarm intelligence focusing on road networks. Multi-objective formulation is based on real life constraints and other road network related limitations. These approaches improved previous works and introduced novel algorithms in this field.
This book is based on the latest software development methodology ´´Agile Software development´´. In this book, The author has given a review about Agile methodology and a case study on applying agile software methodology on student´s projects. This work will provide you knowledge about the industry adaption of Agile as well. Most of the IT companies are now using Agile software development for their projects so it will be very good for the students to know more about Agile and become Agile.
This book presents a new suite of benchmarks for and examples of porous media mechanics collected over the last two years. It continues the assembly of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics published in 2014. The book covers various applications in the geosciences, geotechnics, geothermal energy, and geological waste deposition. The analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to many applications in environmental engineering, such as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilisation, carbon capture and storage, water resources management, hydrology, and even climate change. In order to assess the feasibility and safety of geotechnical applications, process-based modelling is the only tool that can effectively quantify future scenarios, a fact which also creates a huge burden of responsibility concerning the reliability of computational tools. The book shows that benchmarking offers a suitable methodology for verifying the quality of modelling tools based on best practices, and together with code comparison fosters community efforts. It also provides a brief introduction to the DECOVALEX, SeSBench and MOMAS initiatives. This benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open source project designed to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation.
The implementation of Information Communication and Technology (ICT) in the government of Timor-Leste was at a cross-road. The ICT planners implemented a variety of ICT systems across the country based on many different frameworks that have been adopted during the first decade of development. The government of Timor-Leste needs to collectively improve the ICT systems in order to be more secure and cost-effective. The proposed modern framework will help the government institutions to implement ICT with a high Return of Investment (ROI). The designed modern framework provides a flowchart and hypothesis questions as either a basis for the evaluation and validation of the existing Information and Technology (IT) system or the construction of a new IT system that is secure, in line with business requirements, open standard, cross-platform, meets regulations, has social capabilities, workflow, and a high ROI. A Lotus Domino single directory provides a central point of contact which would enable the connection, communication, coordination and collaboration (4 Cs) within the government of Timor-Leste, the communities in Timor-Leste, and the rest of the world.
Malware cases are increasing both in numbers and fatality. Hackers design malware to compromise systems security mostly confidentiality, integrity, and availability. Malware elimination techniques exist but the malware must be detected first. Malware detection techniques still have weaknesses of high false positive/negatives rates. The emergency of polymorphic malware has made the situation worse. Recent studies have shown data mining to be promising in identifying malware by analyzing API calls. However, in this approach, a file is detected as malicious or not. It is not classified on to which malware class it belongs. This makes its elimination harder as elimination schemes are mostly class based. Classification as a post detection process is important if the malware is to be eliminated from the system. We experiment on the use of data mining approach to classify malware using 4-gram API system calls. We use Windows Portable Executables (PE) with their corresponding API calls. Using the Cuckoo sandbox. Relevant 4-gram API call features are extracted using Term Frequency-Inverse Document Frequency(TF-IDF). Machine Learning algorithms are then applied to classify the malware.
