This second edition of Evolving Connectionist Systems presents generic computational models and techniques that can be used for the development of evolving, adaptive modelling systems, as well as new trends including computational neuro-genetic modelling and quantum information processing related to evolving systems. New applications, such as autonomous robots, adaptive artificial life systems and adaptive decision support systems are also covered.
The models and techniques used are connectionist-based and, where possible, existing connectionist models have been used and extended. Divided into four parts the book opens with evolving processes in nature; looks at methods and techniques that can be used in evolving connectionist systems; then covers various applications in bioinformatics and brain studies; finishing with applications for intelligent machines.

XML in Theory and Practice
XML is a powerful cross-platform mark-up language which has been readily adopted as a standard in many spheres of web and software development. Real benefits include its ease of integration into existing systems, the simplicity of using it in object-oriented environments and its wide applicability. Chris Bates shows how to use XML in modern...

Cacti 0.8 Network Monitoring Cacti is a web-based, PHP/MySQL graphing solution to monitor network bandwidth with SNMP using the RRDTool engine—developed by Tobi Oeticker who is already the creator of the famous MRTG. RRDtool is a program developed in C and it stores collected data on .rrd files. Cacti's strength lies in the fact that it can be installed and used easily.... NetSuite OneWorld Implementation 2011 R2
When I first heard of NetLedger in an internal Oracle e-mail around the turn of the
century, it was one of those 'aha' moments that we all have in life. There was, at this
time, a fledgling industry of Application Service Providers (ASPs), who offered to
host enterprise software at a data center. But I was skeptical, since I... Novell's ZENworks for Servers 3 Administrator's Handbook
Novell ZENworks for Servers (ZENworks stands for Zero Effort Networking) is the cross-platform solution for server content and configuration management. It provides server consistency across Windows, Linux, Solaris and NetWare platforms, enables intelligent network automation, and increases management efficiency so everything works together as...
