This tutorial reference takes the reader from use cases to complete architectures for real-time embedded systems using SysML, UML, and MARTE and shows how to apply the COMET/RTE design method to real-world problems. The author covers key topics such as architectural patterns for distributed and hierarchical real-time control and other real-time software architectures, performance analysis of real-time designs using real-time scheduling, and timing analysis on single and multiple processor systems. Complete case studies illustrating design issues include a light rail control system, a microwave oven control system, and an automated highway toll system. Organized as an introduction followed by several self-contained chapters, the book is perfect for experienced software engineers wanting a quick reference at each stage of the analysis, design, and development of large-scale real-time embedded systems, as well as for advanced undergraduate or graduate courses in software engineering, computer engineering, and software design.
This pack consists of the Student's Book with answers with CD-ROM and Class Audio CDs. The Student's Book fully prepares students to tackle each part of every exam paper. Unique grammar and vocabulary exercises train students to avoid common mistakes. The interactive CD-ROM provides comprehensive extra practice of the language and topics covered in the book and supports mixed ability focusing on students' own particular areas of difficulty. The Class Audio CDs contain the recordings for the listening exercises in the Student's Book. A full practice test is available online for teachers to access.
Learning RF/microwave design fundamentals for the first time can be challenging. Keysight Technologies has created the RF Design Software Learning Kit to make it easier. Many texts used for introductory RF/microwave courses contain examples using CAD simulation software; however, they do not explain how to set up those simulations. This learning kit includes a 170-page downloadable book, along with links to the associated ADS projects and videos. This book provides step-by-step examples highlighting the theory and application of an RF/microwave curriculum within the Keysight ADS software environment. Keysight ADS is the world's leading electronic design automation software for RF, microwave, signal and power integrity applications. ADS is used by RF engineers in a range of industries. This text aims to provide the reader with the basic tools necessary to succeed when entering the workforce. Therefore, the intended audience is a student enrolled in an introductory microwave course, and the material is presented in the familiar homework style format. The topics covered range from basic transmission line theory to passive filters, and include three design projects intended to be used in the laboratory setting. The structure of the homework questions is designed to teach the user to apply the theory, expect a solution, and validate the hypothesis. Often, the problem with using a CAD tool is that the user does not know how to set up a correct simulation, and the software will only simulate what it is instructed to do. These examples are designed to show the capabilities of the software while building an understanding of how it works and how to set up correct simulations. Although the material is presented in a classroom setting, the emphasis on fundamental theory opens the demographic to anyone interested in learning basic microwave theory and how to use ADS software.

"... a book of striking originality and depth, a brilliant and quite new interpretation of the nature and history of philosophy." -- John Sallis In Broken Hegemonies, the late distinguished philosopher Reiner SchÃ1⁄4rmann offers a radical rethinking of the history of Western philosophy from the Greeks through Heidegger. SchÃ1⁄4rmann interprets the history of Western thought and action as a series of eras governed by the rise and fall of certain dominating philosophical ideas that contained the seeds of their own destruction. These eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. Analyzing philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, through Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, SchÃ1⁄4rmann traces the arguments by which these ideas gained hegemony and by which their credibility was ultimately demolished. Recognizing the failure of ultimate norms, Broken Hegemonies questions how humanity today is to think and act in the absence of principles.

"... elegant and provocative... Exhibit[s] a subtle mastery of Heidegger's works." —Review of Metaphysics "... splendidly precise study of Heidegger... to be recommended not only to Heidegger scholars but also to those interested in the question of what philosophical thinking has as its task in the modern technological world." —Religious Studies Review "... indispensable to understanding the later Heidegger." —Choice
Is it possible to create a community where everyone lives according to their own rhythm, and yet respects the individual rhythms of others? This volume contains new essays which investigate and actualize the concepts that Roland Barthes discussed in his famous 1977 lecture series on "How to Live Together" at the Collège de France. The anthology presents original and thought-provoking approaches to questions of conviviality and "idiorrhytmic life forms" in literature, arts and other media. The essays are written by 32 highly competent scholars from seven countries, representing literary studies, philosophy, social sciences, theology, church history, psychoanalysis, art history, architecture, media studies, history of ideas, and biology.
This 1989 book is about chaos, fractals and complex dynamics.

The relationship between economy, finance and society has become opaque. Quantum leaps in complexity and scale have turned this deeply interdependent web of relations into an area of incomprehensible abstraction. And while the economization of life has come under widespread critique, inquiry into the political potential of representational praxis is more crucial than ever. This volume explores ethical, aesthetic and ideological dimensions of economic representation, redressing essential questions: What are the roles of mass and new media? How do the arts contribute to critical discourse on the global techno-economic complex? Collectively, the contributions bring theoretical debate and artistic intervention into a rich exchange that includes but also exceeds the conventions of academic scholarship.
