              The escalating demand for ubiquitous computing along with the complementary and flexible natures of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have sparked an increase in the integration of these two dynamic technologies. Although a variety of appli...cations can be observed under development and in practical use, there has been a need for a resource that brings together timely coverage of RFIS, Sensor Networks, and their integration. Filling this need, RFID and Sensor Networks: Architectures, Protocols, Security, and Integrations is the authoritative reference on RFID and WSNs. Covering a broad range of topics that includes everything from the basics to insights into future directions, this cutting-edge book reviews architectures, protocols, standards, security, and applications. With sections devoted to each individual element, the text starts by covering the tags, readers, and middleware associated with RFID. Next, it provides insights into the routing, medium access control, and cross-layer optimization of WSNs. The third section focuses on the integration of RFID and WSN, addresses contemporary challenges, and illustrates concepts and applications with practical examples. This forward looking resource details the enhanced visibility and monitoring capabilities that are possible with RFID and WSNs and highlights contemporary applications including smart homes, surveillance systems, and personal health care. Providing a complete understanding of the essential fundamentals behind RFID and WSNs, this book will help you foster the skills needed to materialize the enhancements possible when these two promising technologies are used together.

              The idea of the commons is a long-standing concept in the English-speaking world and in English law. A similar concept occurs in China. How different from or similar to the English idea of the commons is the idea in China; and how is the concept applied? This book explores this i...mportant subject. It examines the subject from a philosophical and theoretical perspective; considers the commons widely, including tangible commons of resources, intangible commons of culture, identity and social capital, and institutional commons of welfare, security and public goods; and goes on to examine the concept as it applies to the hydropower developments along the Lancang River, outlining the different competing interests of local people, central and provincial government, and environmental considerations. It argues that the concept of the commons in China is dual-dimensional, with a vertical dimension of public authority and a horizontal dimension of commonly sharing , that power structures in China have often been flexible and polycentric, and that, correctly applied, this approach will do much to serve the common interest of the people, ensuring positive impacts for shared prosperity for multiple stakeholders, whilst mitigating the negative impacts involved in the delivery of such positive impacts.

              Originally invented to explain complicated economic behaviors, game theory is poised to become a fundamental technique in the field of wireless communications and networks. This book explains how game theory can be used to address a wide range of issues in wireless communications... and examines how it can be employed in infrastructure-based wireless networks and multihop networks to reduce power consumption, improve system capacity, decrease packet loss, and enhance network resilience. The authors demonstrate how to effectively apply the game theoretic model to handle issues of resource allocation, congestion control, attack, routing, energy management, packet forwarding, and MAC.
