### Signal Theoretic Introduction to Random Processes Wiley

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

Presenting a rigorous introduction to the modelling and characterization of random phenomena, this book stands out from the existing texts in this field by characterizing random processes in signal theory. Instead of approaching randomness directly from random processes theory, the author places an emphasis on statistical signal theory, mathematical rigor, and using finite-time interval to establish results of random processes. One advantage to this theoretical approach is the unique framework provided to augment existing theory in the context of many unsolved problems. The use of a signal theory basis provides a general framework for defining functions used for characterizing random phenomena including the autocorrelation function and the power spectral density. The signal basis set approach for defining the power spectral density, which is the most widely used measure for characterizing random phenomena, provides a simple and natural interpretation of this function for the general case and for the usual case where a sinusoidal basis set is assumed. The usual approach to the power spectral density is through an autocorrelation function where an indirect interpretation can be provided for the restricted sinusoidal basis set case. Also, results for the important random phenomena encountered in the electronic and communications engineering field are given and include: the random walk, Brownian motion, the random telegraph signal, the Poisson point process, the Poisson counting process, shot noise, white noise, 1/f noise, signaling random processes, jittered random processes, random clustering, and birth-death random processes. Finally, the mathematical rigor underpins all aspects throughout the book, which demonstrates clarity and precision in the statement of results. The first five chapters provides the necessary background on the mathematical, signal theory, random variable theory, and random process theory to facilitate further development of random processes and random phenomena in the next chapters. Chapter 6 provides details the prototypical random processes that are fundamental to electrical, electronic, and communication engineering. Consequently, chapter 7-10 coverage includes details of the characterization of random phenomena from an engineering perspective: probability mass function/probability density function evolution, autocorrelation function, and power spectral density. Chapter 11 features an introduction to order statistics, which provides the background for a discussion of the Poisson point random process in Chapter 12. Chapter 13 introduces birth-death random processes and then Chapter 14 provides an introduction to first passage time theory.

### Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python University Press Group Ltd

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

This book introduces students with little or no prior programming experience to the art of computational problem solving using Python and various Python libraries, including PyLab. It provides students with skills that will enable them to make productive use of computational techniques, including some of the tools and techniques of "data science" for using computation to model and interpret data. The book is based on an MIT course (which became the most popular course offered through MIT's OpenCourseWare) and was developed for use not only in a conventional classroom but in a massive open online course (or MOOC) offered by the pioneering MIT-Harvard collaboration edX. Students are introduced to Python and the basics of programming in the context of such computational concepts and techniques as exhaustive enumeration, bisection search, and efficient approximation algorithms. The book does not require knowledge of mathematics beyond high school algebra, but does assume that readers are comfortable with rigorous thinking and not intimidated by mathematical concepts. Although it covers such traditional topics as computational complexity and simple algorithms, the book focuses on a wide range of topics not found in most introductory texts, including information visualization, simulations to model randomness, computational techniques to understand data, and statistical techniques that inform (and misinform) as well as two related but relatively advanced topics: optimization problems and dynamic programming. Introduction to Computation and Programming Using Python can serve as a stepping-stone to more advanced computer science courses, or as a basic grounding in computational problem solving for students in other disciplines.

### Introduction to Moroccan Arabic and Culture PLYMBRIDGE DISTRIBUTORS

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

"An Introduction to Moroccan Arabic and Culture" and the accompanying multimedia DVD are designed to enable students to communicate effectively using Moroccan Arabic. Since Moroccan Arabic is rarely written or used in formal communication, the strength of the book lies in training learners in speaking and listening skills that can be used in everyday situations. Upon completing this course, students should be able to: greet people; introduce themselves; ask and reply to simple questions; use days and numbers in context; order food; shop; make appointments and reservations; give directions; talk about future plans; and, use common idiomatic expressions. Each chapter includes: cultural introductions to social, religious, or cultural aspects of Moroccan society; listening comprehension exercises; vocabulary exercises; dialogues and texts; conversation practice; grammar instruction on how native speakers structure their speech; and, interactive and video materials to support cultural understanding, listening, speaking, and grammar explanations. This book uses Romanized transcription alongside Arabic script for the first three chapters and thereafter only the Arabic script. It also includes a glossary and answer key. It requires approximately 120 contact hours, plus 180-240 additional hours of preparation outside class. A novice student should reach the intermediate-mid level of proficiency by the end of this course.

### Distributed network protocols for anonymous stations in cooperative and noncooperative settings Politechnika Gdańska

**INFORMATYKA**

This work studies the effects of station anonymity and/or noncooperative (selfish) station behavior upon the design and performance of selected distributed network protocols. A set of stations interconnected by a computer network are assumed to be engaged in a collective activity for which some inter-station consistency is required. The considered protocols relate to group communication (where message delivery in agreed order is required), random multiple access over a single channel (where collision avoidance is required), and packet forwarding (where maintenance of end-to-end paths is required). Design of distributed protocols for anonymous stations permits to dispense with costly authentication mechanisms, and provides a "security lower bound" for systems in which station identities are relied upon. Modeling of noncooperative settings (where stations are allowed to behave selfishly) is justified in view of the increased autonomy and user configurability of today's network components; at the same time, as a departure from the traditional engineering paradigm, it opens up interesting areas of networking research. In Chapter 2, two agreed order multicast protocols are proposed for anonymous stations in a cooperative setting. Both are LAN-oriented i.e., designed to yield high group throughput by exploiting the natural synchronism of single-broadcast transmission media. A faulty communication environment is assumed with occasional reception misses - failures by one or more stations to receive a message. The Distributed Precedence Graph (DPG) protocol is network-independent in that multicast and reception primitives clearly define a protocol-to-network interface, and missed message recovery is separated from message ordering. In contrast, the Jamming Protocol (JP) is network-dependent and exploits in a novel way the "ideal synchronism" of LAN broadcast to couple missed message recovery and message ordering. Both proposed protocols are insensitive to membership control mechanisms and do without the knowledge of station identities. Even so, they compare favorably with existing agreed order multicast protocols like LANSIS or TOTEM, as demonstrated by the analysis of logicaltime properties and simulation of stochastic performance. Chapters 3 through 5 are devoted to game-theoretic analysis of random access MAC-layer protocols in a noncooperative setting. Chapter 3 deals with CSMA/CA, the multiple access mechanism of the IEEE 802.11 MAC protocol. It is argued that in an ad hoc wireless LAN, CSMA/CA is vulnerable to a selfish backoff attack consisting in systematic selection of short backoff times. Network performance under a backoff attack is evaluated via extension of Bianchi's Markovian approximation, as well as using more accurate models. A sufficient condition of solvability is given and a game-theoretic analysis is carried out with stations' bandwidth shares regarded as payoffs. Launching a backoff attack is established as a strictly dominating action, the payoff structure of the resulting one-shot CSMA/CA game being similar to a multiplayer Prisoners' Dilemma (with a unique and Pareto non-optmal Nash equilibrium). The notion of a Nash capacity is introduced to show that selfish station behavior reduces the achievable bandwidth utilization roughly by half compared with a cooperative setting. Incentive-based discouragement of backoff attacks is proposed in Chapter 4 using the concept of a repeated CSMA/CA game, where a station is allowed to reconfigure its CSMA/CA mechanism based upon past payoffs. Assuming that most stations are interested in enforcing cooperative behavior of the other stations, a satisfactory equilibrium play is shown possible. In particular, a selfish station can be expected to incline to honest play for fear of the other stations inclining to selfish play. This idea is elaborated upon and gives rise to two proposed strategies of playing the repeated CSMA/CA game, called Cooperation via Randomized Inclination to Selfish Play (CRISP) and Selfish Play to Elicit Live-and-Let-live (SPELL). By exploiting another property of the one-shot CSMA/CA game, called coarse profile observability, CRISP and SPELL are shown to asymptotically achieve Pareto optimality and the related Nash equilibrium becomes subgame perfect. It is shown how to extend the proposed strategies if some stations disengage the CSMA/CA backoff scheme. Chapter 4 concludeswith a discussion of QoS-sensitive station behavior, in which case the CSMA/CA game may change from a Prisoners' Dilemma into a form of a queuing game. Selfish behavior of CSMA/CA stations studied in Chapters 3 and 4 only affects specific protocol parameters, leaving the very principle of contention unchanged. In Chapter 5 we look at a slightly more general model of single-channel contention. In the proposed framework, the MAC protocol proceeds in cycles, each of which accommodates the stations' requests to transmit. This subsumes various existing random token-like protocols e.g., CSMA/CA, Random Token, slotted ALOHA, and HIPERLAN/1. A selection configuration determines how the requests are placed, whereas a winner policy decides the winner of a contention. It is argued that while the winner policy must be agreed upon by all the stations, the selection configuration is entirely within a station's discretion. For a wide class of winner policies, called Random Token with Extraneous Collision Detection (RT/ECD), the notions of verifiability and viability are introduced to factor out brute-force selfish behavior, and shown to lead to two interesting winner policies, RT/ECD-0 and RT/ECD--. The resulting games are found to be a multiplayer Prisoners' Dilemma and an anti-coordination game, respectively. Related repeated games are again found to potentially lead to cooperative behavior. In Chapter 6, selfishness considerations are extended to the network layer of a mobile ad hoc network (MANET). Each MANET station generates source packets and also is supposed to forward transit packets for pairs of stations currently out of each other's reception range. It is argued that forwarding transit packets becomes a dual liability: it shortens the station's battery life "in exchange for" sacrificing a portion of the channel bandwidth that could be used for source packets. Under the introduced packet anonymity model (no packet reveals its source station except at destination), undetectable selfish manipulation of the local congestion controls is possible. The issue is addressed in a noncooperative game-theoretic framework: each MANET station selects its own strategy (congestion control settings) at will, so as to maximize some defined payoff (a combination of source packet throughput and a reputation measure). For a class of Drop-and-Throttle (D&T) congestion control mechanisms, a generic model is formulated, whereby a station adjusts its D&T threshold in response to the other stations' adjusted thresholds; this model is subsequently translated into a simple extensive-form game. Types of reachable Nash equilibria are discussed and the notion of robustness of a Nash equilibrium is introduced. Finally, a novel packet forwarding protocol called Fair Forwarding with Forced Transmissions (F3T) is presented, which, if properly configured, leads to a desirable type of Nash equilibrium.

### Adventures of Augie March Penguin

**Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna**

Saul Bellow's American masterpiece, "The Adventures of Augie March" includes an introduction by Christopher Hitchens in "Penguin Modern Classics". A penniless and parentless Chicago boy growing up in the Great Depression, Augie March drifts through life latching on to a wild succession of occupations, including butler, thief, dog-washer, sailor and salesman. He is a 'born recruit', easily influenced by others who try to mould his destiny. Not until he tangles with the glamorous Thea, a huntress with a trained eagle, can he attempt to break free. A modern day everyman on an odyssey in search of reality and identity, Augie March is the star of star performer in a richly observed human variety show, a modern-day Columbus in search of reality and fulfilment. Saul Bellow (1915-2005) was a Canadian - born American writer who enjoyed a dazzling career as a novelist, marked with numerous literary prizes, including the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for Literature. His books include "The Adventures of Augie March", "Herzog", "More Die of Heartbreak", "Mosby's Memoirs and Other Stories", "Mr. Sammler's Planet", "Seize The Day" and "The Victim". If you enjoyed "The Adventures of Augie March", you might like John Updike's "Rabbit, Run", also available in "Penguin Classics". "The Adventures of Augie March is the Great American Novel. Search no further". (Martin Amis, "Guardian"). "Funny, poignant, crowded with carnivalesque types and yet narrated by a voice that is lonely and simple, it is Bellow's fat comic masterpiece". ("Observer").
