♥ Book Title : The Critical Link 4
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book is a collection of papers presented in Stockholm, at the fourth Critical Link conference. The book is a well-balanced mix of academic research and texts of a more practical, professional character.The introducing article explicitly addresses the issue of professionalism and how this has been dealt with in research on interpreting. The following two sections provide examples of recent research, applying various theoretical approaches. Section four reports on the development of current, more or less local standards. Section five raises issues of professional ideology. The final section tells about new training initiatives and programmes. All contributions were selected because of their relevance to the theme of professionalisation of interpreting in the community. The volume is the fourth in a series, documenting the advance of a whole new empirical and professional field. It is of central interest for all people involved in this development, interpreters, researchers, trainers and others."Article| Cecilia Wadensjö| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Micro-macro Link
☯ Full Synopsis : "The work of fifteen nationally and internationally known theorists in sociology, this volume demonstrates an exciting new trend in sociological thinking. Each essay proposes a link between the two distinguishable traditions of sociological theory--the microscopic, which stresses the self and the interaction among persons, and the macroscopic, which concentrates on the institutional, cultural, and societal levels. Each mode of analysis has had its champions, and the proponents of each have often taken positions of polemic opposition to one another."Article| Jeffrey C. Alexander| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Link Adaptation for Relay-Based Cellular Networks
☯ Full Synopsis : "Link Adaptation for Relay-Based Cellular Networks focuses on the implementation of various link adaptation methods in OFDM(A) (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing/Multiple Access)-Time Division Duplex (TDD) based two-hop cellular networks. The analysis and design consider infrastructure based relays. New link adaptive transmission methods which dynamically select the channel coding, modulation, forwarding, relaying mechanisms and the packet size have been designed and evaluated for such networks. The selection among various schemes is based on maximizing the end-to-end throughput. This book provides a channel adaptive scheduler which considers the multiplexing loss caused by the two-phase nature of wireless relaying. The scheduler dynamically schedules the users on the frequency-time radio resources with efficient Modulation and Coding Schemes (MCS)s selected by Adaptive Modulation and Coding (AMC). Relaying is used only if it can provide throughput enhancement. The guidelines for efficient deployment of infrastructure based relay terminals are given. For the two-hop cellular communication systems, the system level performance of various cooperative diversity schemes has been investigated with the scheduler developed and the relays efficiently deployed in the cell. This investigation for low mobility scenarios shows that, a simple cooperative diversity scheme that dynamically chooses the best scheme among direct transmission and two-hop conventional relaying is a promising choice when compared to various more complex cooperative diversity schemes. In this book, a hop adaptive Medium Access Control (MAC)-Protocol Data Unit (PDU) size optimization is proposed for wireless relay networks. With this proposal, the MAC-PDU size in different hops can be different and it is optimized based on the channel condition of each hop. Such optimization improves the end-to-end goodput via MAC-PDU size optimization. The proposal further reduces the total overhead transmitted in the end-to-end path via transmitting longer length packets in the potentially robust Base Station (BS)-to-Relay Station (RS) links. The time and carrier frequency offset issues and the hardware complexity of various cooperative diversity scheme implementations are investigated for the MS. The investigations show a significant complexity increase with the cooperative diversity schemes which require coherent signal combining at the MS. Hence, coherent signal combining at the MS should be used if there is a throughput gain."Article| Basak Can| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Control of Flexible-link Manipulators Using Neural Networks
☯ Full Synopsis : "Control of Flexible-link Manipulators Using Neural Networks addresses the difficulties that arise in controlling the end-point of a manipulator that has a significant amount of structural flexibility in its links. The non-minimum phase characteristic, coupling effects, nonlinearities, parameter variations and unmodeled dynamics in such a manipulator all contribute to these difficulties. Control strategies that ignore these uncertainties and nonlinearities generally fail to provide satisfactory closed-loop performance. This monograph develops and experimentally evaluates several intelligent (neural network based) control techniques to address the problem of controlling the end-point of flexible-link manipulators in the presence of all the aforementioned difficulties. To highlight the main issues, a very flexible-link manipulator whose hub exhibits a considerable amount of friction is considered for the experimental work. Four different neural network schemes are proposed and implemented on the experimental test-bed. The neural networks are trained and employed as online controllers."Article| H.A.

♥ Book Title : Link Reversal Algorithms
☯ Full Synopsis : "Link reversal is a versatile algorithm design technique that has been used in numerous distributed algorithms for a variety of problems. The common thread in these algorithms is that the distributed system is viewed as a graph, with vertices representing the computing nodes and edges representing some other feature of the system (for instance, point-to-point communication channels or a conflict relationship). Each algorithm assigns a virtual direction to the edges of the graph, producing a directed version of the original graph. As the algorithm proceeds, the virtual directions of some of the links in the graph change in order to accomplish some algorithm-specific goal. The criterion for changing link directions is based on information that is local to a node (such as the node having no outgoing links) and thus this approach scales well, a feature that is desirable for distributed algorithms. This monograph presents, in a tutorial way, a representative sampling of the work on link-reversal-based distributed algorithms. The algorithms considered solve routing, leader election, mutual exclusion, distributed queueing, scheduling, and resource allocation. The algorithms can be roughly divided into two types, those that assume a more abstract graph model of the networks, and those that take into account more realistic details of the system. In particular, these more realistic details include the communication between nodes, which may be through asynchronous message passing, and possible changes in the graph, for instance, due to movement of the nodes. We have not attempted to provide a comprehensive survey of all the literature on these topics. Instead, we have focused in depth on a smaller number of fundamental papers, whose common thread is that link reversal provides a way for nodes in the system to observe their local neighborhoods, take only local actions, and yet cause global problems to be solved. We conjecture that future interesting uses of link reversal are yet to be discovered.

♥ Book Title : The Man who Found the Missing Link
☯ Full Synopsis : "Born eighteen months after the first Neanderthal skeleton was found and a year before Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species, Eugene Dubois vowed to discover a powerful truth in Darwin's deceptively simple ideas. There is a link, he declared, a link as yet unknown, between apes and Man. It takes a brilliant writer to elucidate a brilliant mind, and Pat Shipman shines as never before. The Man Who Found the Missing Link is an irresistible tale of adventure, scientific daring, and a strange and enduring love--and it is true."Article| Pat Shipman| Statement ..."
