The Internet of Things (IoT) has attracted strong interest from both academia and industry. Unfortunately, it has also attracted the attention of hackers. Security and Privacy in Internet of Things (IoTs): Models, Algorithms, and Implementations brings together some of the top IoT security experts from around the world who contribute their knowledge regarding different IoT security aspects. It answers the question "How do we use efficient algorithms, models, and implementations to cover the four important aspects of IoT security, i.e., confidentiality, authentication, integrity, and availability?" The book consists of five parts covering attacks and threats, privacy preservation, trust and authentication, IoT data security, and social awareness. The first part introduces all types of IoT attacks and threats and demonstrates the principle of countermeasures against those attacks. It provides detailed introductions to specific attacks such as malware propagation and Sybil attacks. The second part addresses privacy-preservation issues related to the collection and distribution of data, including medical records. The author uses smart buildings as an example to discuss privacy-protection solutions. The third part describes different types of trust models in the IoT infrastructure, discusses access control to IoT data, and provides a survey of IoT authentication issues. The fourth part emphasizes security issues during IoT data computation. It introduces computational security issues in IoT data processing, security design in time series data aggregation, key generation for data transmission, and concrete security protocols during data access. The fifth and final part considers policy and human behavioral features and covers social-context-based privacy and trust design in IoT platforms as well as policy-based informed consent in the IoT.

This book assembles new methods showing the automotive engineer for the first time how hybrid vehicle configurations can be modeled as systems with discrete and continuous controls. These hybrid systems describe naturally and compactly the networks of embedded systems which use elements such as integrators, hysteresis, state-machines and logical rules to describe the evolution of continuous and discrete dynamics and arise inevitably when modeling hybrid electric vehicles. They can throw light on systems which may otherwise be too complex or recondite. Hybrid Systems, Optimal Control and Hybrid Vehicles shows the reader how to formulate and solve control problems which satisfy multiple objectives which may be arbitrary and complex with contradictory influences on fuel consumption, emissions and drivability. The text introduces industrial engineers, postgraduates and researchers to the theory of hybrid optimal control problems. A series of novel algorithmic developments provides tools for solving engineering problems of growing complexity in the field of hybrid vehicles. Important topics of real relevance rarely found in text books and research publications—switching costs, sensitivity of discrete decisions and there impact on fuel savings, etc.—are discussed and supported with practical applications. These demonstrate the contribution of optimal hybrid control in predictive energy management, advanced powertrain calibration, and the optimization of vehicle configuration with respect to fuel economy, lowest emissions and smoothest drivability. Numerical issues such as computing resources, simplifications and stability are treated to enable readers to assess such complex systems. To help industrial engineers and managers with project decision-making, solutions for many important problems in hybrid vehicle control are provided in terms of requirements, benefits and risks.

Fast Solar Sailing

The range of solar sailing is very vast; it is a fully in-space means of propulsion that should allow us to accomplish various mission classes that are literally impossible using rocket propulsion, no matter if nuclear or electric. Fast and very fast solar sailings are special classes of sailcraft missions, initially developed only in the first half of the 1990s and still evolving, especially after the latest advances in nanotechnology. This book describes how to plan, compute and optimize the trajectories of sailcraft with speeds considerably higher than 100 km/s; such sailcraft would be able to explore the outer heliosphere, the near interstellar medium and the solar gravitational lens (550-800 astronomical units) in times significantly shorter than the span of an average career (~ 35 years), just to cite a few examples. The scientific interest in this type of exploration is huge.

Eines der »zehn besten Bücher« des Jahres 2012 der New York Times Zadie Smiths tragikomischer Roman erzählt von vier Londonern – Leah, Natalie, Felix und Nathan –, die zwar den sozialen Wohnungsbau ihrer Kindheit verlassen haben, doch bis zum heutigen Tag im Londoner Nordwesten leben, dem eigentlichen Zentrum der Stadt.Leah, Natalie, Felix und Nathan wachsen in einer Hochhaussiedlung auf, wie es sie in jeder Großstadt gibt – immer das Ziel vor Augen, Caldwell eines Tages zu verlassen und etwas Größeres, Besseres aus ihrem Leben zu machen. Dreißig Jahre später sind sie zwar erwachsen, doch richtig weit gekommen sind sie nicht. Nur Natalie hat es scheinbar geschafft. Als erfolgreiche Anwältin gibt sie mit ihrem Mann vornehme Dinnerpartys, auf denen sich ihre weit weniger zielstrebige Freundin Leah und deren Mann Michel alles andere als wohlfühlen. Überhaupt sind Natalie und Leah blind für die Probleme der jeweils anderen und neiden einander das vermeintlich perfekte Leben. Als eine Fremde an Leahs Tür klingelt und sie um Hilfe bittet, überschlagen sich die Ereignisse ...Zadie Smiths Roman über North West London, das jenseits der Touristenströme liegt, ist ein sehr heutiger, schneller, eindringlicher Text über einen multikulturellen Stadtteil und die Schicksale seiner Bewohner.
