Fundamentals Wind Driven Water Book Summary : This monograph offers a comprehensive reference work for engineers, researchers and students involved in the design, testing and improvement of wind-driven water pumps. By providing a thorough treatment of the factors which affect the success of pump performance, combined with the fundamentals of machine design, this book distinguishes itself from a simple design manual, and therefore allows the reader to determine the most efficient wind-pump configuration based on their specific needs and resources. The latest international developments in wind-driven water pumping technologies, including a survey of the advantages and disadvantages of the alternative configurations to the more "standard" designs are discussed. In a field where technical information is limited, "The Fundamentals of Wind-Driven Water Pumpers" will serve as a valuable resource for the wind-engineering community. Water-pumping windmills are used in crop irrigation and water supply for livestock in various semi-arid regions
Driven Book Summary : From New York Times Best-Selling Author K. Bromberg comes an unforgettable series about lust, love, redemption, and healing... Our paths should never have crossed. Colton Donavan was arrogant, exuded that bad boy vibe, and embodied everything I never wanted. And yet all it took was one night, one hallway, and one stolen kiss for me to know I hated him and desired him instantly. My heart was healing. His soul was damaged. But with one bid, one little boy, and one carnival date, I couldn’t walk away and he wouldn’t let me in. This is our story. Our fight. Our perfectly imperfect love.
Business Driven Research Development Book Summary : Business-Driven Research & Development demonstrates how science and technology can be managed in order to meet well defined business directives. The book argues that it should be a fundamental business premise that the primary role of research and development is to fulfil strategic objectives, within a framework of time and cost targets. The book examines the traditional disconnection between research and development and the market place, and presents the means to derive competitive advantage through overcoming it.

Soliton driven Photonics Book Summary : It is ironic that the ideas ofNewton, which described a beam of light as a stream ofparticles made it difficult for him to explain things like thin film interference. Yet these particles, called 'photons', have caused the adjective 'photonic' to gain common usage, when referring to optical phenomena. The purist might argue that only when we are confronted by the particle nature of light should we use the word photonics. Equally, the argument goes on, only when we are face-to face with an integrable system, i. e. one that possesses an infinite number of conserved quantities, should we say soliton rather than solitary wave. Scientists and engineers are pragmatic, however, and they are happy to use the word 'soliton' to describe what appears to be an excitation that is humped, multi humped, or localised long enough for some use to be made of it. The fact that such 'solitons' may stick to each other (fuse) upon collision is often something to celebrate for an application, rather than just evidence that, after all, these are not really solitons, in the classic sense. 'Soliton', therefore, is a widely used term with the qualification that we are constantly looking out for deviant behaviour that draws our attention to its solitary wave character. In the same spirit, 'photonics' is a useful generic cover-all noun, even when 'electromagnetic theory' or 'optics' would suffice.

Goal driven Learning Book Summary : Brings together a diversity of research on goal-driven learning to establish a broad, interdisciplinary framework that describes the goal-driven learning process. In cognitive science, artificial intelligence, psychology, and education, a growing body of research supports the view that the learning process is strongly influenced by the learner's goals. The fundamental tenet of goal-driven learning is that learning is largely an active and strategic process in which the learner, human or machine, attempts to identify and satisfy its information needs in the context of its tasks and goals, its prior knowledge, its capabilities, and environmental opportunities for learning. This book brings together a diversity of research on goal-driven learning to establish a broad, interdisciplinary framework that describes the goal-driven learning process. It collects and solidifies existing results on this important issue in machine and human learning and presents a theoretical framework for future investigations. The book opens with an an overview of goal-driven learning research and computational and cognitive models of the goal-driven learning process. This introduction is followed by a collection of fourteen recent research articles addressing fundamental issues of the field, including psychological and functional arguments for modeling learning as a deliberative, planful process; experimental evaluation of the benefits of utility-based analysis to guide decisions about what to learn; case studies of computational models in which learning is driven by reasoning about learning goals; psychological evidence for human goal-driven learning; and the ramifications of goal-driven learning in educational contexts. The second part of the book presents six position papers reflecting ongoing research and current issues in goal-driven learning. Issues discussed include methods for pursuing psychological studies of goal-driven learning, frameworks for the design of active and multistrategy learning systems, and methods for selecting and balancing the goals that drive learning.

Data Driven Techniques in Speech Synthesis Book Summary : This first review of a new field covers all areas of speech synthesis from text, ranging from text analysis to letter-to-sound conversion. At the leading edge of current research, the concise and accessible book is written by well respected experts in the field.
User Driven Product Development Book Summary : User-driven product development is the art of interacting with users in all stages of the innovation process. The quest for user-driven product development creates a collaborative mindset of user-involvement in new product projects. Users are to be regarded as valuable, knowledgeable and innovative resources to product development. The book starts with the design elements of a user-involving product development culture. Based on this, managers and students are invited to study the complexity and challenges of performing user-driven product development in organizations. The significant mechanisms of user-driven product development are described and discussed in detail and through generous use of examples and cases. The main themes of the book are: * The framework of user-driven product development * Information competences demanded by user-driven product development * How to collaborate with users about new product projects * The user-interacting potential of information and web technol
Model Driven Engineering and Ontology Development Book Summary : Defining a formal domain ontology is considered a useful, not to say necessary step in almost every software project. This is because software deals with ideas rather than with self-evident physical artefacts. However, this development step is hardly ever done, as ontologies rely on well-defined and semantically powerful AI concepts such as description logics or rule-based systems, and most software engineers are unfamiliar with these. This book fills this gap by covering the subject of MDA application for ontology development on the Semantic Web. The writing is technical yet clear, and is illustrated with examples. The book is supported by a website.
Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems Book Summary : This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (formerly UML conferences), MoDELS 2006. The book presents 51 revised full papers and 2 invited papers. Discussion is organized in topical sections on evaluating UML, MDA in software development, concrete syntax, applying UML to interaction and coordination, aspects, model integration, formal semantics of UML, security, model transformation tools and implementation, and more.
Knowledge Driven Entrepreneurship Book Summary : The Springer book series Innovation, Technology, and Knowledge Management was launched in March 2008 as a forum and intellectual, scholarly “podium” for global/local, transdisciplinary, transsectoral, public–private, and leading/“bleeding” -edge ideas, theories, and perspectives on these topics. The book series is accompanied by the Springer Journal of the Knowledge Economy, which was launched in 2009 with the same editorial leadership. The series showcases provocative views that diverge from the current “conv- tional wisdom,” that are properly grounded in theory and practice, and that consider 1 2 the concepts of robust competitiveness, sustainable entrepreneurship, and demo- 3 cratic capitalism, central to its philosophy and objectives. More specifically, the aim of this series is to highlight emerging research and practice at the dynamic intersection of these fields, where individuals, organizations, industries, regions, and nations are harnessing creativity and invention to achieve and sustain growth. Books that are part of the series explore the impact of innovation at the “macro” (economies, markets), “meso” (industries, firms), and “micro” levels. (teams, indi viduals), drawing from such related disciplines as finance, organizational psychology, research and development, science policy, information systems, and 1 We define sustainable entrepreneurship as the creation of viable, profitable, and scalable firms. Such firms engender the formation of self-replicating and mutually enhancing innovation networks and knowledge clusters (innovation ecosystems), leading toward robust competitiveness (E.G. Carayannis, International Journal of Innovation and Regional Development, 1(3), 235–254, 2009).
Model Driven Architecture Foundations and Applications Book Summary : Model-Driven Architecture, including model-drivenapproaches in general, holds the big promise of moving software development towards a higher level of - straction. Given the challenges in the software industry of delivering more c- plex functionality with less e?ort, I am convinced that it isn't a question of whether model-driven development will succeed, but rather a question of when it will break through. However, before this can happen, we have many challe- ing problems to conquer. There are both theoretical and pragmatic problems to solve and therefore we need a close collaboration between industry and the academic world. ThegoaloftheEuropeanConferenceonModel-DrivenArchitecture-Fo- dations and Applications (ECMDA-FA) is to bring together industry and academia to tackle the problems in model-driven development. This volume includes 18 foundation papers and 12 application papers, which is a ?ne b- ance between both worlds. ECMDA-FA 2006 also hosted six workshops on both theoretical and practical aspects of MDA. Furthermore, the keynote speakers, David Frankel and Bran Selic, from some of the world's largest IT companies proved that industry is very much involved in MDA.
