All organizations, whether for profit, not for profit, or government, face issues of information technology management. While the concerns involved may differ from organization to organization, the principles of good information technology management remain the same.
Using a compilation of articles on various topics relating to technology management, Handbook of Technology Management in Public Administration addresses the management, implementation, and integration of technology across a wide variety of disciplines.
This manual provides an introduction to Rational Rose. Rational Rose is the visual
modeling tool that is part of a comprehensive set of tools that embody software
engineering best practices and span the entire software development life cycle.
Rational Rose helps improve communication both within teams and across team
boundaries, reducing development time and improving software quality.
This guide is intended for all users of Rational Rose, including administrators,
analysts, architects, and developers....

The need for complete network security has never been greater nor as well understood. Malicious users
threaten to steal, manipulate, and impede information. Numerous solutions address perimeter defense,
but the greatest threat of information theft and unauthorized access remains within the internal network
One point of concern is the relative ease of physical and logical access to a corporate network. Both
physical and logical access has been extended to enable a greater level of mobility, providing several
benefits to business operations and overall productivity.
This type of coatings is also
characterized with a large number of grain boundaries with a crystalline/amorphous
transition across grain–matrix interfaces, restricting the rise and development of cracks.
Such mechanism explains the resistance to fragile cracking of nanocomposite coatings
(Veprek, 1997; Veprek, 1998; Rafaja et al., 2006).
Internetworks come in a variety of topologies and levels of complexity—from single-protocol,
point-to-point links connecting cross-town campuses, to highly meshed, large-scale wide-area
networks (WANs) traversing multiple time zones and international boundaries. The industry trend is
toward increasingly complex environments, involving multiple media types, multiple protocols, and
often interconnection to “unknown” networks. Unknown networks may be defined as a transit
network belonging to a Internet service provider (ISP) or a telco that interconnects your private

The concept of acoustic wave is a pervasive one, which emerges in any type of medium, from solids to plasmas, at length and time scales ranging from sub-micrometric layers in microdevices to seismic waves in the Sun's interior. This book presents several aspects of the active research ongoing in this field. Theoretical efforts are leading to a deeper understanding of phenomena, also in complicated environments like the solar surface boundary.
The basic idea behind any sonar system is as follows: an acoustic signal (or ping) is emitted
by the sonar into an area to be observed; the sonar then listens for echoes of the ping that
have been produced when bouncing back from the objects that might be present in the area.
Typically, sonar images are produced by plotting the intensity measured back by the sonar
versus time, and since the speed of sound underwater is known (or can be measured), the
time axis effectively corresponds to range from the sonar.
In this way, just as light illuminates a scene...
The term "country" as used in this publication also refers, as appropriate, to territories
and areas. The designations employed and the presentation of the material do not imply the
expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of the Secretariat of the United Nations

This research project was motivated by the possibility of using fracture mechanics to assist in optimizing gear design. The primary goal is to develop a state-of-the-art capability for modeling three-dimensional crack propagation in gears using boundary element method, finite element method, and fracture mechanics. It is being conducted by a grant between Cornell University and the NASA-Glenn Research Center (formerly known as Lewis Research Center).
The optical fibre technology is one of the hop topics developed at the beginning of the 21th
century and could do many services for application dealing with lighting, sensing and
communicating systems. Many improvements have been carried out since 30 years to reduce
the fibre attenuation and to improve the fibre performance. Nowadays, new applications
have been developed over the scientific community and this book titled “Optical Fibre, New
Developments” fits into this paradigm.
Because this is a book about web development and operations, you need to know more than
just how to build web sites. You also have to understand how teams within a company interact,
and which best practices it’s important to follow. The interaction of software engineers and system
administrators has given rise to the term developer operations or DevOps, because of the
way these teams cross each other’s boundaries to work as a single logical unit.
There is a very old saying that all cats look grey at night. Today, thanks partly to the growing trend to furnish private homes and gardens with sophisticated outdoor lighting, that saying is no longer as true as it once was. Facades subtly accentuated by light and encircled by greenery imbue such buildings with an inviting, homely atmosphere. Illuminated gardens extend the domestic living space outwards, illuminated boundaries enable the space to be experienced as a whole, even in winter.
In recent years, the ICT market has quickly moved toward the integration of a large
variety of functions into a single portable electronic equipment. The boundaries
among different devices like music players, digital cameras or mobile phones are
going to vanish. In this trend, one of the key factors is played by data storage, since all
these devices require a large amount of memory to store either audio or visual data.
Also, the energy consumption needs to be reduced to further extend battery duration
and the functionality of the devices....
Research in computer vision has exponentially increased in the last two decades due to the
availability of cheap cameras and fast processors. This increase has also been accompanied
by a blurring of the boundaries between the different applications of vision, making it truly
interdisciplinary. In this book we have attempted to put together state-of-the-art research
and developments in segmentation and pattern recognition.
It was estimated that 80% of the information received by human is visual. Image processing is evolving fast and continually. During the past 10 years, there has been a significant research increase in image segmentation. To study a specific object in an image, its boundary can be highlighted by an image segmentation procedure. The objective of the image segmentation is to simplify the representation of pictures into meaningful information by partitioning into image regions. Image segmentation is a technique to locate certain objects or boundaries within an image....
In this scholarly yet highly accessible work, Eva Hemmungs Wirten
traces three main themes within the scope of cultural ownership: au-
thorship as one of the basic features of print culture, the use of intellec-
tual property rights as a privileged instrument of control, and, finally,
globalization as a precondition under which both operate. Underwrit-
ten by rapid technological change and increased global interdepend-
ence, intellectual property rights are designed to protect a production
that is no longer industrial, but informational....
