The new science of cities
Batty M., The MIT Press, Cambridge, MA, 2013. 520 pp. Type: Book (978-0-262019-52-1)
Michael Batty is a British urban planner and geographer who has devoted a lengthy (48 years) academic career to understanding cities as processes on networks rather than simply as things at locations. His latest book draws together a w...

Incorporating household structure into a discrete-event simulation model of tuberculosis and HIV
Mellor G., Currie C., Corbett E. ACM Transactions on Modeling and Computer Simulation 21(4): 1-17, 2011. Type: Article
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is known to increase the probability of developing tuberculosis (TB) and accelerating its progression. During the last 20 years, as a result of the rise in the number of HIV infections, the number of ...

Middleware for enterprise scale data stream management using utility-driven self-adaptive information flows
Kumar V., Cooper B., Cai Z., Eisenhauer G., Schwan K. Cluster Computing 10(4): 443-455, 2007. Type: Article
The goal of self-optimization is to distribute the services of an application in such a way that the considered resources are utilized evenly. This paper describes an approach that uses data streams to enable self-optimization of a dep...
