Web Engineering: The Discipline of Systematic Development of Web Applications

Buy
The World Wide Web has a massive and permanent influence on our lives. Economy, industry, education, healthcare, public administration, entertainment – there is hardly any part of our daily lives which has not been pervaded by the Internet.

Accordingly, modern Web applications are fully-fledged, complex software systems, and in order to be successful their development must be thorough and systematic. Web Engineering is the application of quantifiable approaches to the cost-effective requirements analysis, design, implementation, testing, operation and maintenance of high quality Web applications.

Web Engineers face the same traditional concerns as Software Engineers: the risks of failure to meet business needs, project schedule delays, budget overruns and poor quality of deliverables. But in the Web environment new and complicated issues demand attention, too. Web Engineering addresses the problems associated with shorter lead times which require rapid prototyping and agile methods, the interactivity and visual nature of the medium which make HCI aspects highly significant, and multimedia features of Web applications.

This well-organized guide takes a rigorous interdisciplinary approach to Web Engineering, covering Web development concepts, methods, tools and techniques, and is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students on Web-focused or Software Engineering courses, as well as Web software developers, Web designers and project managers.

GPU-Based Techniques for Global Illumination Effects (Synthesis Lectures on Computer Graphics)
Real-time rendering poses severe computational requirements to computers. In order to maintain a continuous looking motion for the human eye, at least 20 images need to be generated in each second. An image consists of about a million pixels, which means that for a single pixel the visible point and its color should be computed in less than 50 ns...

Have you ever seen a cell? Cells are the smallest unit of life. They are called the building blocks of life. We cannot see individual cells with our naked eyes.

We must use a microscope to...

Signal Processing for Remote Sensing
Signal Processing for Remote Sensing
Signal processing has been playing an increasingly important role in remote sensing, though most remote sensing literatures are concerned with remote sensing images. Many data received by remote sensors such as microwave and geophysical sensors, are signals or waveforms, which can be processed by analog and digital signal...
