Survivability and Traffic Grooming in WDM Optical Networks

The arrival of fiber optic transmission platforms and wavelength department multiplexing has ended in a dramatic elevate within the usable bandwidth of unmarried fiber platforms. This ebook presents designated assurance of survivability (dealing with the danger of wasting huge volumes of site visitors facts because of a failure of a node or a unmarried fiber span) and site visitors grooming (managing the elevated complexity of smaller consumer requests over excessive means facts pipes), either one of that are key concerns in sleek optical networks.

Principles of Semiconductor Network Testing (Test & Measurement)

This ebook gathers jointly accomplished details which attempt and approach execs will locate useful. The recommendations defined can assist make sure that try out equipment and information amassed replicate real equipment functionality, instead of 'testing the tester' or being misplaced within the noise flooring. This e-book addresses the basic matters underlying the semiconductor try out self-discipline.

Opportunistic Spectrum Sharing and White Space Access: The Practical Reality

Information the paradigms of opportunistic spectrum sharing and white area entry as powerful skill to fulfill expanding call for for high-speed instant communique and for novel instant conversation functions This booklet addresses opportunistic spectrum sharing and white house entry, being quite conscious of functional concerns and recommendations.

From photon to pixel : the digital camera handbook

The camera conceals outstanding technological strategies that impact the formation of the picture, the colour illustration or computerized measurements and settings. ** From photon to pixel photon ** describes the equipment either from the perspective of the physics of the phenomena concerned, as technical parts and software program it makes use of.

Cooperative coevolution offers many benefits when building content creation tools. Each module can easily encapsulate a particular design task, such as level design, which helps conceptually separate the different elements of content creation. Methodology 23 It is also easily amenable to mixed-initiative design, where a human contributes to the content generation process alongside an AI system. Because fitness functions react to the context provided to them by the other species, we can remove a CCE species and replace it with a static, human-generated piece of content, and the CCE system will design and adapt its other species to the content provided.

Eating a pill, eating a power-pill, eating a ghost, getting eaten by a ghost, eating a fruit, finishing a level, and changing the movement direction; rate of player actions: pills per minute, ghosts eaten per power pill, ghosts eaten per minute, power pills per minute, key strokes per pill, changes in movement directions per pill. 5. The most insightful tool to interpret the traits generated by the LDA algorithm is analyzing the weights of the base vectors defining the LDA-transformed space. These vectors define the mapping of player metrics into the LDA space, where each weight associated with a player feature indicates its influence in separating players in that dimension.

In the sections below, we consider some different approaches to measuring content and players. 1 Measuring the Game We understand the quality of a game to mean the potential for the game to engage players: the capacity of that game to interest players and to keep them in that state. Gauging the quality of a generated game or piece of game content can be difficult, as the notion of quality can depend on the context and vary from player to player. One approach is to define quality metrics which provide a computational assessment of an aspect of game quality.
