Statistical Data Mining Using SAS Applications not only introduces concepts but also enables readers to understand and apply data mining methods using downloadable SAS macro-call files. These techniques stress the use of visualization for studying the structure of data and the validity of statistical models. With the SAS macro-call files, readers explore: techniques for creating training and validation samples; exploratory graphical techniques; frequency analysis for categorical data; unsupervised and supervised learning methods; model validation techniques; and how to convert PC databases to SAS data.

This concise text covers the fundamentals of pure mathematical combinatorics, including combinations, permutations, and more sophisticated counting techniques; generating functions; difference equations; generalizations; and special functions. It also presents graph-theoretic terminology and elementary graph theory as it arises in combinatorics. The authors provide brief introductions to more advanced ideas, such as Latin squares, block designs, matrices, and Polya’s theory of counting. They also include exercises at both the elementary and advanced levels as well as additional exercises and solutions on a supplementary website.

Despite continued interest in Cognitive Work Analysis (CWA) there are few upto-date books in the area and none which comprehensively document the use of these methods in real-world applications. This is a critical shortcoming as more cognitive engineers and human factors professionals seek to use CWA methods in their own work. This book demonstrates how these often complicated methods can be applied in complex, real-world design contexts, subject to constraints of cost, time, and information. It shows how, when, and where CWA techniques can be integrated into the systems engineering design process and provides concrete evidence for the value that the CWA approach provides.

Series: Image Processing, 11

Having moved from the age of the mainframe to that of personal computing, we are now entering what some refer to as the third wave, ubiquitous computing, the era when computing moves from front-and-center to become more subtly integrated into our lives. However, much of the information on this third wave is not clear at all. Written by top experts from industry and academia, this book provides a comprehensive and well-organized overview of ubiquitous systems design and deployment. It covers everything from the application of quantitative methods to ubiquitous systems software.  

Adaptive image processing is one of the most important techniques in visual information processing, especially in early vision such as image restoration, filtering, enhancement, and segmentation. While existing books present some aspects of this important issue, there is not a single book that treats this problem from a purely computational intelligence (CI) viewpoint. With three new chapters and numerous updates throughout, this second edition includes substantial new material that focuses on applications of advanced CI techniques in image processing applications. It emphasizes developments in state-of-the-art CI techniques, such as CBIR.

Recent advances in RbD have identified a number of key issues for ensuring a generic approach to the transfer of skills across various agents and contexts. This book focuses on the two generic questions of what to imitate and how to imitate, which are concerned, respectively, with the problem of the extraction of the essential features of a task and the determining of a way to reproduce these essential features in different situations. The book proposes active teaching methods that places the teacher “in the loop” of the robots’ learning.

Through the use of questionnaires, interviews, and assessments, this volume demonstrates how to evaluate an organization’s culture and its ability to meet various security standards and requirements. It provides practical guidance for building, writing, and implementing policy architecture that is designed to specifically fit within that culture. Recognizing that the effectiveness of a policy is dependent on cooperation and compliance, the author also demonstrates how to communicate that policy and provides advice on how to gain support. Samples of effective policy architecture are included.

Critical Infrastructure (CI) is a little understood topic, which seems to generate more fear than rational discussion. CIs are considered fundamental to the functioning of modern economies. Moving beyond definitions, this volume looks at the iron triangle within CI: power, telecom, and finance. It introduces the concept of CIs as industrial and enterprise risk conductors, highlighting the fact that a CI failure can propagate an impact throughout an enterprise. This text rethinks the concept of a CI according to contemporary factors, providing guidance for mitigating risk within the framework of national economies.

This book illustrates how policies and procedures support the efficient running of an organization. It points out how security documents and standards are key elements in the business process, but should never be undertaken to satisfy a perceived audit or security requirement. Instead, policies, standards, and procedures should exist only to support business objectives or mission requirements; they are elements that aid in the execution of management policies. The authors detail how security policies support management directions, and they emphasize how information security must be integrated into all business processes. The book examines Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 policies.

Now in its third edition, this book is an excellent introductory reference to IT governance, controls, and auditing. It reviews pertinent legislation; discusses the future of auditing in the 21st century; and examines governance, strategy and standards, and acquisition and implementation. In a section on delivery and support, it explores service management, service continuity, systems management, and operations management. Finally, the authors review advanced topics such as virtual environment, virtual security, e-commerce, and enterprise resource planning. This new edition includes guidelines for preparing for the CISA Exam, and includes numerous illustrations to help readers visualize concepts.

Quality Assurance of Agent-Based and Self-Managed Systems

Secure and Resilient Software Development

Reiner Dumke, Steffen Mencke, & Cornelius Wille

Mark S. Merkow & Lakshmikanth Raghavan

Based on the authors’ more than fifteen years of experience in software agent technology, this book first presents the essential basics, aspects, and structures of the agent technology. It then covers the main quality aspects in software system development and gives current examples of agent measurement and evaluation. Focusing on software agent systems and multi-agent systems (MAS), the authors discuss the determination of quality properties. They also explain different techniques and approaches to evaluate the development of MAS. The final chapter summarizes quality assurance approaches for agent-based systems and discusses some open problems and future directions.

Many of the software books available clearly highlight the problems with current software development but don’t provide comprehensive, easily actionable, groundlevel solutions. Covering the entire secure software development life cycle that ties all development together, this book presents quality software development strategies and practices stressing resilience requirements with precise, actionable, and ground-level inputs that connect directly with their creators. The text helps developers understand fundamental problems  and provides them with best practices, principles, design methodology, programming guidance, and testing practices.

Textbook

Requirements Engineering for Software and Systems Phillip A. Laplante

Secure Java

The Pennsylvania State University, Malvern, USA Series: Applied Software Engineering, 5

For Web Application Development

With an intentional focus on software-intensive systems, this volume provides a probing and comprehensive review of the state of technology and developments in intelligent systems, soft computing techniques, and their diverse applications in manufacturing. To illustrate key ideas associated with requirements engineering, the text presents three common example systems: an airline baggage handling system, a point-of-sale system for one location of a large pet store chain, and a system for a “smart home” in which one or more PCs control various aspects of the home’s functions. The selected systems encompass a wide range of applications— from embedded to organic, covering industrial and consumer uses.

As the Internet has evolved, so have the various vulnerabilities, which largely stem from the fact that developers are unaware of the importance of a robust application security program. This book aims to educate readers on application security and building secure web applications using the new Java Platform. The text details a secure web application development process from the risk assessment phase to the proof of concept phase. The authors detail such concepts as application risk assessment, secure SDLC, security compliance requirements, web application vulnerabilities and threats, security implementation techniques using Java technologies, and web application security testing.

Scrum is an agile development methodology that is quickly gaining pace as a mainstream method in the software industry. This book highlights its practice and interweaves project experience with mandatory Scrum methods. Each chapter illustrates a particular aspect of Scrum and its application. Using a case study throughout, the authors detail how to implement agile practices in a corporation. They also discuss the need for a different kind of contract mechanism, which needs to be put in place with different metrics and estimation techniques. The book concludes with guidelines on how to convert a mainstream methodology to Agile.

Examining current trends and problems that have plagued application development for more than a decade, this book provides a foundation for security risk assessment and management during software development. It demonstrates how to achieve greater application security through assessing and managing risk throughout the entire software development life cycle using a test case based on the author’s personal experience in software development. The book covers methods used to assess risk, discussing the pros and cons of each method. Readers are then guided through each step of the process. The book concludes with discussions of how to sustain a risk assessment and risk management process within an organization.

Environmental Science and Engineering

It’s no coincidence that many of the issues in today’s headlines read like a list of CRC new releases… from five or even ten years ago. Just as it’s never been a coincidence that the fields of inquiry our authors pursue today often bear the greatest fruit tomorrow. Whether its advancing agriculture yield, improving infrastructure, developing clean and green alternatives, retrofitting industry, reorganizing healthcare, securing our homeland, streamlining public administration, or defining just who we are and where we are going, CRC has the resources and references to turn students into professionals and leaders, researchers into innovators and pioneers. In the classroom, in the laboratory, and out in the field, wherever challenges are being met by research, ingenuity, and determination, you will find those who create and rely on the authoritative content that is the power of CRC Press.
