              Nature Inspired Optimization Algorithms is a comprehensive book on the most popular optimization algorithms that are based on nature. It starts with an overview of optimization and goes from the classical to the latest swarm intelligence algorithm. Nature has a rich abundance of ...flora and fauna that inspired the development of nature inspired optimization techniques. The study of the intelligent survival strategies of animals, birds and insects in a hostile and ever-changing environment has led to the development of techniques emulating their behaviour. Nature provides us with simple solutions to complex problems in an effective and adaptive manner. This book is a valuable resource for engineers, researchers, faculty and students who are devising optimum solutions to any type of problem. The problems range from computer science to economics covering diverse areas that require maximizing output and minimizing resources and this is the crux of all optimization algorithms. The book is a lucid description of fifteen of the existing important optimization algorithms that are based on swarm intelligence and superior in performance. Features: Detailed description of the algorithms along with pseudocode and flowchart Easily translatable to program code that is also readily available in Mathworks website for some of the algorithms Simple examples to demonstrate the optimization strategies have been given wherever possible that makes understanding easier Standard applications and benchmark datasets for testing and validating the algorithms have been enumerated This book is a reference for under-graduate and post-graduate students. It will be useful to faculty members teaching the subject on optimization. It also a comprehensive guide for researchers who are looking for optimizing resources in attaining the best solution to a problem. The nature inspired optimization algorithms are unconventional and this makes them more efficient than their traditional counterparts.

              In biological research, the amount of data available to researchers has increased so much over recent years, it is becoming increasingly difficult to understand the current state of the art without some experience and understanding of data analytics and bioinformatics. An Introdu...ction to Bioinformatics with R: A Practical Guide for Biologists leads the reader through the basics of computational analysis of data encountered in modern biological research. With no previous experience with statistics or programming required, readers will develop the ability to plan suitable analyses of biological datasets, and to use the R programming environment to perform these analyses. This is achieved through a series of case studies using R to answer research questions using molecular biology datasets. Broadly applicable statistical methods are explained, including linear and rank-based correlation, distance metrics and hierarchical clustering, hypothesis testing using linear regression, proportional hazards regression for survival data, and principal component analysis. These methods are then applied as appropriate throughout the case studies, illustrating how they can be used to answer research questions. Key Features: * Provides a practical course in computational data analysis suitable for students or researchers with no previous exposure to computer programming. * Describes in detail the theoretical basis for statistical analysis techniques used throughout the textbook, from basic principles * Presents walk-throughs of data analysis tasks using R and example datasets. All R commands are presented and explained in order to enable the reader to carry out these tasks themselves. * Uses outputs from a large range of molecular biology platforms including DNA methylation and genotyping microarrays; RNA-seq, genome sequencing, ChIP-seq and bisulphite sequencing; and high-throughput phenotypic screens. * Gives worked-out examples geared towards problems encountered in cancer research

              This book, presented in three volumes, examines "environmental" disciplines in relation to major players in contemporary science: Big Data, artificial intelligence and cloud computing. Today, there is a real sense of urgency regarding the evolution of computer technology, the ...ever-increasing volume of data, threats to our climate and the sustainable development of our planet. As such, we need to reduce technology just as much as we need to bridge the global socio-economic gap between the North and South; between universal free access to data (open data) and free software (open source). In this book, we pay particular attention to certain environmental subjects, in order to enrich our understanding of cloud computing. These subjects are: erosion; urban air pollution and atmospheric pollution in Southeast Asia; melting permafrost (causing the accelerated release of soil organic carbon in the atmosphere); alert systems of environmental hazards (such as forest fires, prospective modeling of socio-spatial practices and land use); and web fountains of geographical data. Finally, this book asks the question: in order to find a pattern in the data, how do we move from a traditional computing model-based world to pure mathematical research? After thorough examination of this topic, we conclude that this goal is both transdisciplinary and achievable.

              The concept of a data lake is less than 10 years old, but they are already hugely implemented within large companies. Their goal is to efficiently deal with ever-growing volumes of heterogeneous data, while also facing various sophisticated user needs. However, defining and build...ing a data lake is still a challenge, as no consensus has been reached so far. Data Lakes presents recent outcomes and trends in the field of data repositories. The main topics discussed are the data-driven architecture of a data lake; the management of metadata - supplying key information about the stored data, master data and reference data; the roles of linked data and fog computing in a data lake ecosystem; and how gravity principles apply in the context of data lakes. A variety of case studies are also presented, thus providing the reader with practical examples of data lake management.
