How can you take advantage of feedback control for enterprise programming? With this book, author Philipp K. Janert demonstrates how the same principles that govern cruise control in your car also apply to data center management and other enterprise systems. Through case studies and hands-on simulations, you’ll learn methods to solve several control issues, including mechanisms to spin up more servers automatically when web traffic spikes.
Feedback is ideal for controlling large, complex systems, but its use in software engineering raises unique issues. This book provides basic theory and lots of practical advice for programmers with no previous background in feedback control.

Herpes Zoster: Recent Aspects of Diagnosis and Control (Monographs in Virology)
Herpes zoster is a serious neurocutaneous disease which has been underestimated
in terms of its burden, particularly in the elderly population. The
overall incidence of herpes zoster in Europe is about 3 per 1,000 people and
