Whether we changed the Web or the Web has changed us is difficult to discern, even with the wisdom of hindsight. Social Networks and the Semantic Web provides two major case studies.
The first case study shows the possibilities of tracking a research community over the Web, combining the information obtained from the Web with other data sources, and analyzing the results. Social network mining from the Web plays an important role in this case study for obtaining large-scale, dynamic network data beyond the possibilities of survey methods. The second study highlights the role of the social context in user-generated classifications in content, such as the tagging systems known as folksonomies.
Social Networks and The Semantic Web is designed for researchers and advanced-level students of the semantic Web and Web services, information systems, social and information sciences. This book is useful for practitioners in industry as well.

Foundations of Modern Cosmology
Recent discoveries in astronomy, especially those made with data collected by satellites such as the Hubble Space Telescope and the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe, have revolutionized the science of cosmology. These new observations offer the possibility that some long-standing mysteries in cosmology might be answered, including such...
Applications of Fourier Transforms to Generalized Functions
The generalized function is one of the important branches of mathematics
that has enormous application in practical fields. Especially, its applications
to the theory of distribution and signal processing are very much noteworthy.
The method of generating solutions is the Fourier transform, which has
great applications to the...
