A man is accused of attempted murder of a former crystal meth addict. He claims he shot in self-defense, responding to the extremely aggressive behavior the victim was exhibiting.

These proceedings contain the final versions of papers accepted for the workshops that were held in conjunction with the Fifth International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2007) that took place in Brisbane, Australia. Twenty workshop proposals were submitted for this conference of which seven were selected. Ultimately this resulted...
Variation-Aware Analog Structural Synthesis describes computational intelligence-based tools for robust design of analog circuits. It starts with global variation-aware sizing and knowledge extraction, and progressively extends to variation-aware topology design. The computational intelligence techniques developed in this book...
It is very difficult to observe the extraordinary creativity and fruitfulness of Nature without a sense of wonder. But wonder is at odds with reason. It has been said that humanity's schism with Nature was contrived so that we could develop our sense of reason to the extent that we now experience. One of the outcomes of this, because they are...
