  • The Internet of Medical Things: Enabling technologies and emerging applications
  • The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) allows clinicians to monitor patients remotely via a network of wearable or implantable devices. The devices are embedded with software or sensors to enable them to send and receive data via the internet so that healthcare professionals can monitor health data such as vital statistics, metabolic rates or drug delivery regimens, and can provide advice or treatment plans based on this real-world, real-time data. This edited book discusses key loT technologies that facilitate and enhance this process, such as computer algorithms, network architecture, wireless communications, and network security. Providing a systemic review of trends, challenges and future directions of IoMT technologies, the book examines applications such as breast cancer monitoring systems, patient-centric systems for handling, tracking and monitoring virus variants, and video-based solutions for monitoring babies. The book discusses machine learning techniques for the management of clinical data and includes security issues such as the use of blockchain technology. Written by a range of international researchers, this book is a great resource for computer engineering researchers and practitioners in the fields of data mining, machine learning, artificial intelligence and the loT in the healthcare sector.

image of Light Filaments: Structures, challenges and applications
  • Light Filaments: Structures, challenges and applications
  • A laser of sufficient intensity traveling through air will-by itself-engineer a narrow channel over which light will propagate for tens or even hundreds of meters. Such filaments of laser light were first created at the end of the twentieth century, and investigators are now beginning to explore new applications for them. Light Filaments: Structures, challenges and applications brings together exciting results from this area of research. With the development of high repetition rate sources, new aspects of waveguiding are emerging based on the hydrodynamic perturbation created by each filamenting pulse. This book is organized from general overviews to more specialized topics and is aimed at those involved in lasers and other optical wave propagation systems. The goal of this book is to cover the multiple aspects of light filamentation from strong field ionization and molecular properties to laser development and beam shaping, and the wide range of radiation associated with it from THz, lasing in air to supercontinuum generation. The book starts with tutorial chapters about the science of filamentation, followed by in depth chapters on the latest research, technologies and applications in atmospheric studies, guiding waves, laser induced discharge and lightning. This book is the result of a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives (MURI) Program on light filaments from the USA Army Research Office.

image of Edge Caching for Mobile Networks
  • Edge Caching for Mobile Networks
  • Caching enables the storage of Internet-based content, including web objects, videos and software updates. When web objects are downloaded from the Internet or across wide-area network (WAN) links, edge caching stores them at the edge of the network. Content can also be proactively cached at the edge based on its predicted popularity. When subsequent requests come for cached material, the content is quickly delivered from edge caching, without the need to download the data again over the WAN. The result is the ability to help save bandwidth, particularly at times of peak network load, increase content delivery, and provide users with a faster and better network experience. In this comprehensive edited book, the editors and authors introduce edge caching in mobile networks from a fundamental perspective and discuss its role in saving bandwidth and reducing latency over wireless channels. Many physical layer models and techniques, including interference alignment and beamforming are considered, as well as recent advances on intelligent and proactive communication systems capable of recommending content to users to improve quality of experience and spectral efficiency. The book provides systematic and thorough coverage of edge caching for mobile networks for an audience of researchers, engineers and scientists from academia and industry working in the fields of information and communication technology, data science and AI.

  • Advanced Theoretical and Numerical Electromagnetics. Volume 1: Static, stationary and time-varying fields
  • This comprehensive and self-contained resource conveniently combines advanced topics in electromagnetic theory, a high level of mathematical detail, and the well-established ubiquitous Method of Moments applied to the solution of practical wave-scattering and antenna problems formulated with surface, volume, and hybrid integral equations. Originating from the graduate-level electrical engineering course that the author taught at the Technical University of Eindhoven (NL) from 2010 to 2017, this well-researched two-volume set is an ideal tool for self-study. The subject matter is presented with clear, engaging prose and explanatory illustrations in logical order. References to specialized texts are meticulously provided for the readers who wish to deepen and expand their mastery of a specific topic. This book will be of great interest to graduate students, doctoral candidates and post-docs in electrical engineering and physics, and to industry professionals working in areas such as design of passive microwave/ optical components or antennas, and development of electromagnetic software. Thanks to the detailed mathematical derivations of all the important theoretical results and the numerous worked examples, readers can expect to build a solid and structured knowledge of the physical, mathematical, and computational aspects of classical electromagnetism. Volume 1 covers fundamental notions and theorems, static electric fields, stationary magnetic fields, properties of electromagnetic fields, electromagnetic waves and finishes with time-varying electromagnetic fields. Volume 2 starts with integral formulas and equivalence principles, then moves on to cover spectral representations of electromagnetic fields, wave propagation in dispersive media, integral equations in electromagnetics and finishes with a comprehensive explanation of the Method of Moments.

image of Uncertainty Quantification of Electromagnetic Devices, Circuits, and Systems
  • Uncertainty Quantification of Electromagnetic Devices, Circuits, and Systems
  • Uncertainty Quantification of Electromagnetic Devices, Circuits, and Systems describes the advances made over the last decade in the topic of uncertainty quantification (UQ) and stochastic analysis. The primary goal of the book is to educate and inform electronics engineers about the most recent numerical techniques, mathematical theories, and computational methods to perform UQ for electromagnetic devices, circuits, and systems. Importantly, the book offers an in-depth exploration of the recent explosion in surrogate modelling (metamodeling) techniques for numerically efficient UQ. Metamodeling has currently become the most attractive, numerically efficient, and popular approach for UQ. The book begins by introducing the concept of uncertainty quantification in electromagnetic device, circuit, and system simulation. Further chapters cover the theory and applications of polynomial chaos based uncertainty quantification in electrical engineering; dimension reduction strategies to address the curse of dimensionality in polynomial chaos; a predictor-corrector algorithm for fast polynomial chaos based statistical modeling of carbon nanotube interconnects; machine learning approaches towards uncertainty quantification; artificial neural network-based yield optimization with uncertainties in EM structural parameters; exploring order reduction clustering methods for uncertainty quantification of electromagnetic composite structures; and mixed epistemic-aleatory uncertainty using a new polynomial chaos formulation combined with machine learning. A final chapter provides concluding remarks and explores potential future directions for research in the field. The book will be a welcome resource for advanced students and researchers in electromagnetics and applied mathematical modelling who are working on electronic circuit and device design.
