Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Textbooks in Computing

Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Textbooks in Computing

This book begins by asking the question, “What is it that we do and know as computer scientists that is most valuable to the non-computer scientist?” Consistent with the spirit of Jeanette Wing’s seminal CACM article that introduced the concept of computational thinking, this class-tested textbook presents concepts and techniques from computer science to a broader audience. The book demonstrates the ways that computer science concepts are applicable in other fields through material that is both accessible and relevant to non-computer science majors.

Suitable for newcomers to computer science, this text provides a concise yet complete first course in computer science using the Python programming language. The author presents basic programming constructs early, so that beginners can use them throughout the course. He then covers objects and defines classes. Each chapter introduces a main idea through a concrete example and a series of exercises. The examples, exercises, and projects reflect a wide range of applications in biology, textual analysis, and other areas.

Applied Nonparametric Statistical Methods Fourth Edition Peter Sprent Dundee University, Scotland, UK

The field of proteomics has had a tremendous impact on our understanding of biological systems. While proteomics encompasses multiple approaches, the application of mass spectrometry-based techniques has generated large, information-rich data sets that have enabled a much clearer understanding of areas such as cell signaling. For example, protein post-translational modifications are critically involved in signal transduction in almost all biological systems; much progress has been made to identify these protein alterations during signal transduction. This book focuses specifically on the application of these approaches to understanding signaling in biological systems.

Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata Michael N. Mitchell UCLA Academic Technology Services Consulting Group, California, USA

For social scientists, it is often confusing how to determine when missing data is a problem in analyses and how to handle it. This book presents a comprehensive overview of the available methods, focusing on which method should be used for specific problems. It features numerous real and simulated data examples to illustrate how the methods can be applied once the appropriate technique has been determined. It also includes exercises, computer-based problems, and suggestions for further reading. R code and the data sets are available on the book’s website.

Michael Mitchell’s Interpreting and Visualizing Regression Models Using Stata provides a clear treatment of how to carefully present results from model-fitting in a wide variety of settings. It is a boon to anyone who has to present the tangible meaning of a complex model in a clear fashion, regardless of the audience. As an example, many experienced researchers start to squirm when asked to give a simple explanation of the applied meaning of interactions in nonlinear models such as logistic regression. The tools in Mitchell’s book make this task much more enjoyable and comprehensible.

Introduction to Quantum Biology

Introduction to Time Series using Stata

Victor Anisimov and James J.P. Stewart

Sean Becketti

This book introduces readers to the theory and methodology of quantum-mechanical modeling of chemical and biological systems. Given the immense complexity of such systems, there is a constant search for new methods. The goal of this text is to derive approximate (semi-empirical) methods to address this class of problems and to provide insight for their continued development. The authors cover such important topics as molecular dynamics, high performance computing, free energy calculations, statistical mechanics, long-range electrostatics, and many-electron systems.

Introduction to Time Series Using Stata provides a step-by-step guide to essential timeseries techniques—from the incredibly simple to the quite complex—and, at the same time, demonstrates how these techniques can be applied in the Stata statistical package. The emphasis is on an understanding of the intuition underlying theoretical innovations and an ability to apply them. Realworld examples illustrate the application of each concept as it is introduced, and care is taken to highlight the pitfalls, as well as the power, of each new tool.

Additive, Time Series, and Spatial Models Using Random Effects James S. Hodges University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, USA Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science

Using mixed linear models to analyze data often leads to results that are mysterious, inconvenient, or wrong. Further compounding the problem, statisticians lack a cohesive resource to acquire a systematic, theorybased understanding of models with random effects. This book takes a first step in developing a full theory of richly parameterized models, which would allow statisticians to better understand their analysis results. It examines what is known and unknown about mixed linear models and identifies research opportunities. Supporting materials are available on the author’s website.

Handbook of Differential Entropy Joseph Victor Michalowicz, Jonathan M. Nichols, and Frank Bucholtz

Computer Engineering

Unlike related books, this handbook brings together background material, derivations, and applications of differential entropy. The book first reviews probability theory as it enables an understanding of the core building block of entropy. The authors then carefully explain both discrete and differential entropy. They present detailed derivations of differential entropy for numerous probability models, discuss challenges with interpreting and deriving differential entropy, and show how differential entropy varies as a function of the model variance. They also explore the application of differential entropy in several areas. Print ISBN: 978-1-4665-8316-0 November 2013, 6-1/8 x 9-1/4, 244 pp. Suggested Price: $79.95 / £49.99

This volume introduces Nostega—a novel noiseless steganography paradigm. Rather than hiding data in noise or producing noise, Nostega camouflages messages as well as their transmission in the form of unquestionable data in the generated steganographic cover. The book explains how to use Nostega to determine suitable domains capable of generating unsuspicious steganographic cover in which messages are embedded in the form of innocent data compatible with the chosen domain. It presents a number of Nostega-based methodologies and discusses their implementation and steganalysis validation.

Unlike classical mixture models that are limited by the assumption that each object or individual belongs to only one mixture component, mixed membership models handle various data structures and multivariate data of mixed types, including longitudinal, sparse, and relational data structures. A compilation of peer-reviewed articles from researchers in genetics and computer science, this volume examines the characteristics of mixed membership distribution. It gives a fresh take on cluster and classical modeling with a focus on posterior membership probabilities.

Based on the authors’ research from the past ten years, this book unveils computational models that address performance and scalability to achieve higher levels of reliability. Drawing on concepts from pattern recognition, parallel processing, distributed systems, and data networks, it explores different ways of implementing pattern recognition using machine intelligence. The authors offer an extendable template for Internet-scale pattern recognition applications as well as guidance on the programming of large networks of devices.

Series: Advances in Police Theory and Practice

With the increasing barrage of big data, it becomes vital for organizations to make sense of this data in a timely and effective way to improve their decision making and competitive advantage. That’s where business analytics come into play. This book explores case studies from industry leaders in big data domains such as cybersecurity, marketing, finance, emergency management, healthcare, and transportation. It offers a concise guide for CEOs and senior managers, as well as for business, management, and technology students interested in this emerging field.

There are many approaches to understanding white collar crime. This volume looks at the topic from an information management strategy perspective as opposed to the more traditional approach, which revolves around knowledge management strategy. Information management strategy focuses on the identification, retrieval, storage, and application of information resources. By focusing on this perspective, law enforcement organizations can better develop and implement detection and prevention methods and can best use the critical element of police intelligence to help circumvent the tactics of white collar criminals.

Lean IT

Personal Mobile Devices in the Enterprise

Enabling and Sustaining Your Lean Transformation

Security and Privacy Concerns

Steven C. Bell and Michael A. Orzen

Lawrence Gerard Dobranski

Information technology is supposed to enable business performance and innovation, improve service levels, manage change, and maintain quality and stability, all while steadily reducing operating costs. Yet when an enterprise begins a Lean transformation, too often the IT department is either left out or viewed as an obstacle. What is to be done? Winner of a 2011 Shingo Research and Professional Publication Prize, this book shares practical tips, examples, and case studies to help you establish a culture of continuous improvement to deliver IT operational excellence and business value to your organization.

Leaders of many public and private organizations face increased pressure to allow the use of personal mobile devices in their enterprises. This book provides an understanding of the increased risks that accompany the introduction of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) into the enterprise. These risks are examined from the perspectives of the four primary stakeholders: the user, the carrier, the third-party content provider, and the enterprise itself. The book discusses how this trend affects access, risk, and security and examines solutions to the conundrum of access and risk reduction.

Alan Wagner and Janardhan Iyengar Multihomed communication is clearly a trend of next generation networks, which will be heterogeneous in nature. There is no known book covering this topic exclusively. This is probably because a good framework for its implementation has only recently been established by SCTP. There are very few books about SCTP in general and no known book exploring multihomed communication with SCTP. A book in this topic should help many researchers and programmers to learn about multihomed communications in general, and to take full advantage of multihomed communications with SCTP specifically.

Enterprise Security Architecture

The Frugal CISO

A Business-Driven Approach

Using Innovation and Smart Approaches to Maximize Your Security Posture

Nicholas A Sherwood Consultant, Anaesthesia and Critical Care Medicine, City Hospital, Birmimgham, UK

Security is too important to be left in the hands of just one department or employee—it must be a concern to the entire enterprise. Enterprise Security Architecture shows that having a comprehensive plan requires more than the purchase of security software—it requires a framework for developing and maintaining a system that is proactive. The book is based around the SABSA layered framework. It provides a structured approach to the steps and processes involved in developing security architectures.

Introduction to Computer and Network Security Navigating Shades of Gray Richard R. Brooks Clemson University, South Carolina, USA

Compliance standards, of which there are many, can and should be used as a guide to write comprehensive and effective security policies. Many standards cover much of the same topics, but they each state the requirements in slightly different ways. This book provides security managers with a simplified way to address the regulatory requirements of an organization by writing policy statements that specifically address these requirements. The book enables them to more efficiently write policies that meet the major regulatory requirements.

Combining hands-on work with an overview of fundamentals, this text integrates security analysis into a technical computing curriculum. It educates students on security issues, such as side-channel attacks, and deepens their understanding of how computers and networks work. The book presents basic principles and concepts, along with examples of current threats to illustrate how the principles can either enable or neutralize exploits. Classroom-tested case study projects prompt students to stage exploits and choose countermeasures to neutralize the attacks.

Frank Siepmann

No Dark Corners University of Alaska, Fairbanks, USA

Biometric techniques have proven their ability to provide secure access to shared resources in various domains and software agents. In addition, multi-agent systems (MAS) have shown their efficiency in resolving critical network problems. This volume proposes a new model— the IrisCryptoAgentSystem (ICAS)—which is based on a biometric method for authentication using the iris of the eye. The book explains how MAS can be used to solve security problems in complex systems and demonstrates how the intersection of biometric systems, cryptography, and MAS can apply to iris recognition for secure network access.

An adversary who attacks an organization from within can prove fatal to the organization and is generally impervious to conventional defenses. One of the first to use social science research to explain why traditional methods fail against these betrayers, this book identifies new management, security, and workplace strategies for categorizing and defeating insider threats. Each chapter offers questions to stimulate discussion and exercises suitable for team projects. The text will help those charged with protecting an organization from internal threats to circumvent these predators before they jeopardize the workplace and sabotage business operations.

José L. Risco Martín Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain

Model-driven engineering (MDE) offers a promising approach to realize systems of systems (SoS). However, MDE has largely been unachieved in complex dynamical systems and netcentric SoS, in part because modeling and simulation frameworks are not designed for SoS composability. Addressing this gap, this groundbreaking book presents a platform-independent modeling and simulation methodology for realizing the MDE vision using DEVS Unified Process (DUNIP). Addressing the increasing complexity facing heterogeneous systems, it provides a foundation for netcentric SoS software and systems engineering and executable architectures using DoDAF.
