Nature-Inspired Design of Hybrid Intelligent Systems (Studies in Computational Intelligence)
English | 2017 | ISBN: 3319470531 | 838 Pages | PDF | 26.98 MB

This book highlights recent advances in the design of hybrid intelligent systems based on nature-inspired optimization and their application in areassuch as intelligent control and robotics, pattern recognition, time series prediction, and optimization of complex problems. The book is divided into seven main parts, the first of which addresses theoretical aspects of and new concepts and algorithms based on type-2 and intuitionistic fuzzy logic systems. The second part focuses on neural network theory, and explores the applications of neural networks in diverse areas, such as time series prediction and pattern recognition. The book’s third part presents enhancements to meta-heuristics based on fuzzy logic techniques and describes new nature-inspired optimization algorithms that employ fuzzy dynamic adaptation of parameters, while the fourth part presents diverse applications of nature-inspired optimization algorithms. In turn, the fifth part investigates applications of fuzzy logic in diverse areas, such as time series prediction and pattern recognition. The sixth part examines new optimization algorithms and their applications. Lastly, the seventh part is dedicated to the design and application of different hybrid intelligent systems.

Nature, Nurture and Chance The Lives of Frank and Charles Fenner

Nature, Nurture and Chance: The Lives of Frank and Charles Fenner

Nature, Nurture and Chance: The Lives of Frank and Charles Fenner by Frank Fenner
English | Sep. 28, 2011 | ISBN: 1920942629 | 376 Pages | PDF | 8 MB
Judging by the numbers of newspaper reviews, biographies (including autobiographies) are amongst the most common literary works published these days. However, it is uncommon to find one book that combines a biography and an autobiography, as this book, Nature, Nurture and Chance:
Judging by the numbers of newspaper reviews, biographies (including autobiographies) are amongst the most common literary works published these days. However, it is uncommon to find one book that combines a biography and an autobiography, as this book, Nature, Nurture and Chance: The Lives of Frank and Charles Fenner, does. As the author, Frank Fenner, sees it, ‘nature’ means the combination of genes that we inherit from our parents; ‘nurture’ means the way that our physical and social environment, especially during childhood, influence our mental and emotional characteristics; and chance is defined as ‘the way things fall out’. These three elements define the careers of all human beings. The author uses them to compare his father’s life and his own.

Nature, Environment and Culture in East Asia

Nature, Environment and Culture in East Asia

Nature, Environment and Culture in East Asia (Climate and Culture) by Carmen Meinert
English | 2013 | ISBN: 9004230688 | 375 pages | PDF | 5,3 MB
Since in the current global environmental and climate crisis East Asia will play a major role in negotiating solutions, it is vital to understand East Asian cultural variations in approaching and solving environmental challenges in the past, present, and future.
The interdisciplinary volume Nature, Environment and Culture in East Asia. The Challenge of Climate Change, edited by Carmen Meinert, explores how cultural patterns and ideas have shaped a specific understanding of nature, how local and regional cultures develop(ed) coping strategies to adapt to environmental and climatic changes in the past and in the present and how various institutions and representatives might introduce their ideas and agendas in future environmental and climate policies on national levels and in international negotiating systems.

Native American Fiction A User’s Manual

Native American Fiction: A User’s Manual

Native American Fiction: A User’s Manual by David Treuer
2006 | ISBN: 155597452X | English | 224 pages | EPUB | 0.6 MB
An entirely new approach to reading, understanding, and enjoying Native American fiction
This book has been written with the narrow conviction that if Native American literature is worth thinking about at all, it is worth thinking about as literature. The vast majority of thought that has been poured out onto Native American literature has puddled, for the most part, on how the texts are positioned in relation to history or culture.
Rather than create a comprehensive cultural and historical genealogy for Native American literature, David Treuer investigates a selection of the most important Native American novels and, with a novelist’s eye and a critic’s mind, examines the intricate process of understanding literature on its own terms.
Native American Fiction: A User’s Manual is speculative, witty, engaging, and written for the inquisitive reader. These essays?on Sherman Alexie, Forrest Carter, James Fenimore Cooper, Louise Erdrich, Leslie Marmon Silko, and James Welch?are rallying cries for the need to read literature as literature and, ultimately, reassert the importance and primacy of the word.
