The design and implementation of large scale telecommunication systems requires the interconnection and integration of diverse subsystems which need to provide a highly reliable system capable of offering high quality services. Over recent years, large scale systems designers have only had to deal with wireline systems and large scale operations have involved predominantly conventional subsystems. With the unprecedented expansion of IP systems and the parallel expansion of mobile, satellite and satellite/mobile systems and their implementation in large scale telecommunication applications, the requirements for the development of reliable networks providing high quality services have become of paramount importance. This volume clearly tackles this objective and uses the Olympic Games as the case study.
* Covers all of the major design aspects and quality metrics of large scale telecommunication systems
* Presents the quantitative measures of numerous design parameters for Internet based systems/ services, cellular/mobile, satellite/mobile as well as large switching and home wireless systems, to aid system designers
* Features the Olympic Games as the test-bed application on the basis of quantitative metrics of quality and reliability
* Includes a contribution by Hossein Eslambolchi, AT&T's chief technology officer and president of AT&T Labs, USA
Reliability, Survivability and Quality of Large Scale Telecommunication Systems will have wide-ranging appeal to practicing engineers, researchers and professionals as well as academics and graduate students in telecommunications and reliability engineering. It will also be of interest to standards bodies and organizations responsible for organizing, implementing and developing standards for World Class Events.
Representations for Genetic and Evolutionary Algorithms
One of the major challenges for researchers in the field of management science,
information systems, business informatics, and computer science is to develop
methods and tools that help organizations, such as companies or public institutions,
to fulfill their tasks efficiently. However, during the last decade,

Linear Algebra: A Geometric Approach
One of the most enticing aspects of mathematics, we have found, is the interplay of
ideas from seemingly disparate disciplines of the subject. Linear algebra provides
a beautiful illustration of this, in that it is by nature both algebraic and geometric.
