Liu and Wu describe the major developments and technical issues related to learning, adaptation, and self-organization in multiagent robotic systems … the list of references is comprehensive … A good resource for researchers on robotic systems, which may serve as a course resource for graduate students.
Multiagent Robotic Systems addresses learning and adaptation in decentralized autonomous robots. It provides a guided tour of the pioneering work and major technical issues in multiagent robotics research. Its systematic examination demonstrates the interrelationships between the autonomy of individual robots and the emerged global behavior properties of a group performing a cooperative task. The authors also include descriptions of the essential building blocks of the architecture of autonomous mobile robots with respect to their requirement on local behavioral conditioning and group behavioral evolution.
Text filling a void in the literature on the important issues on obtaining the robot behaviors necessary for them to navigate in a spatially unknown environment. Emphasizes recent pioneering work in this area, with case studies, implementation details, graphs and examples. DLC: Robots--Control systems.
Troubleshooting SQL Server - A Guide for the Accidental DBA
I've spent much of the last six years of my working life trying to help people solve SQL
Server-related performance problems, either hands-on, at client sites in my capacity as a
consultant, or on various online community forums, answering people's questions.
Over that time I've been exposed to a few weird...

The Elements of MATLAB Style
In 2002, I wrote a brief set of observations and thoughts
on MATLAB style for my coworkers. Other programmers
found it useful, so I posted the “MATLAB Programming
Style Guidelines” document on my website datatool.com. It
has since been downloaded more than 40,000 times.
This book responds to that encouraging...
Configuring Sonicwall Firewalls Every enterprise requires at least one firewall to provide the backbone for its network
security architecture. Firewalls are the core component of your network’s security.
The risks today have greatly increased, so the call for a stronger breed of firewall
has been made. In the past, simple packet-filtering firewalls allowing...
Building Embedded Systems: Programmable Hardware
This is a book about developing the software and hardware you never think about. We're talking about the nitty-gritty behind the buttons on your microwave, inside your thermostat, inside the keyboard used to type this description, and even running the monitor on which you are reading it now. Such stuff is termed embedded systems,...
