            Computational science is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary field concerned with the design, implementation and use of mathematical models to analyse and solve real-world problems. It is an area of science which spans many disciplines that involves the development of models and ...allows the use of computers to perform simulations or numerical analysis to understand the problems that are computational and theoretical. Computational Science and its Applications provides an opportunity to readers to develop abilities to pose and solve problems that combine insights from one or more disciplines from the natural sciences with mathematical tools and computational skills. This provides a unique combination of applied and theoretical knowledge and skills. The topics covered in this edited book are applications of wavelet and fractals, modeling by partial differential equations on flat structure as well as on graphs and networks, computational linguistics, prediction of natural calamities and diseases like epilepsy seizure, heart attack, stroke, biometrics, modelling through inverse problems, inter-disciplinary topics of physics, mathematics and medical science, modeling of terrorist attack and human behavior. The focus of this book is not to educate computer specialists, but to educate the readers with a solid understanding in basic science as well as an integrated knowledge on how to use essential methods from computational science. Features: * Modelling of complex systems * Cognitive computing systems for real-world problems * Inverse problems in medical science and their numerical solutions will be presented into the volume. * Provides challenging research problems in many areas of computational science. This book could be used as a reference book for the researchers working in theoretical research as well as those who are doing modelling and simulation in the disciplines like physics, biology, geoscience, mathematics etc. with a background in computational science.

            By presenting the conditions, methods and techniques of monetisation of business models in the digital economy, this book combines implementation of the theoretical aspects of monetisation with the presentation of practical business solutions in this field. The scope of the book ...includes the relationship between the monetisation and scalability degree of business models. The book describes the place and role of the digital business ecosystem in the process of digital transformation. It demonstrates ideological and functional conditions for the use of the concept of sharing to design innovative business models while also presenting a multi-dimensional approach to the use of Big Data and their monetisation in the context of business models. The book shows the place and role of ecological and social factors in building digital business models that are part of the concept of the circular economy and presents the contemporary conditions of a sustainability concept that meets the ethical challenges of doing digital business. It demonstrates how important the social factors of business model design and the creation of social value are in modern business and demonstrates. The book explores the servitisation of digital business models using digital technologies and features case studies on the effective solutions of business models that use servitisation as a factor supporting the monetisation of business models. Written for scholars exploring the efficiency and effectiveness of business models related to contemporary concepts - Sharing Economy, Circular Economy, Network Economy, Big Data, etc - and those designing business models taking into account social aspects, it will also be of direct interest to entrepreneurship courses.

            Congruences are ubiquitous in computer science, engineering, mathematics, and related areas. Developing techniques for finding (the number of) solutions of congruences is an important problem. But there are many scenarios in which we are interested in only a subset of the solutio...ns, in other words, there are some restrictions. What do we know about these restricted congruences, their solutions, and applications? This book introduces the tools that are needed when working on restricted congruences and then systematically studies a variety of restricted congruences. It defines several types of restricted congruence, obtains explicit formulae for the number of their solutions using a wide range of tools and techniques, and discusses their applications in cryptography, information security, information theory, coding theory, string theory, quantum field theory, parallel computing, artificial intelligence, computational biology, discrete mathematics, number theory, and more. This the first book devoted to restricted congruences and their applications. It will be of interest to graduate students and researchers across computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics.

            It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the proceedings of the 2019 AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society - AIES 2019. The second edition of this conference was co-located with AAAI-19 on January 27-28, 2019 in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. Concerns about the impact of AI on... society have continued to grow in the year since AAAI and ACM joined to create the first Conference on AI, Ethics and Society. In the vision of this joint effort, it is only through multidisciplinary engagement and scholarship that we can hope to develop good responses to the challenge of ensuring that AI develops in a way that is safe and beneficial for everyone. This year's conference contributed to building a community of shared concepts and concerns. With submissions ranging across a diverse array of fields - computer science, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, and law - we enjoyed two days of engaging contributions that provided new paths for research. A panel and four invited talks set the stage. The opening panel on Responsible Artificial Intelligence: Aligning Technology, Engineering and Ethics (with Yolanda Gil, Huw Price, Francesca Rossi, and Dekai Wu, moderated by Peter Hershock) was held at the University of Hawaii - Manoa in the evening preceding the main conference. The main program led off with Ryan Calo's invited talk titled How We Talk About AI (And Why It Matters). He highlighted the dangers of how we talk about AI: terms like killer robot and arms races may increase rather than decrease international cooperation, and Calo argued that focusing on ethics may reduce our attention to formal law and governance. In her talk titled Guiding and Implementing AI, Susan Athey (Stanford) drew on the theories of causal inference and incentive design to generate insights and research paths for the design of AI systems and organizations that integrate AI and human decision makers. Anca Dragan (Berkeley) urged a reconceptualization of the challenge of building robots that achi

            Classical Concert Studies: A Companion to Contemporary Research and Performance is a landmark publication that maps out a new interdisciplinary field of Concert Studies, offering fresh ways of understanding the classical music concert in the twenty-first century. It brings togeth...er essays, research articles, and case studies from scholars and music professionals including musicians, music managers, and concert designers. Gathering both historical and contemporary cases, the contributors draw on approaches from sociology, ethnology, musicology, cultural studies, and other disciplines to create a rich portrait of the classical concert's past, present, and future. Based on two earlier volumes published in German under the title Das Konzert (The Concert), and with a selection of new chapters written for the English edition, this companion enables students, researchers, and practitioners in the classical and contemporary music fields to understand this emerging field of research, go beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries and methodologies, and spark a renaissance for the classical concert.

            What does a place sound like--and how does the sound of place affect our perceptions, experiences, and memories? The Sound of a Room takes a poetic and philosophical approach to exploring these questions, providing a thoughtful investigation of the sonic aesthetics of our lived e...nvironments. Moving through a series of location-based case studies, the author uses his own field recordings as the jumping-off point to consider the underlying questions of how sonic environments interact with our ideas of self, sense of creativity, and memories. Advocating an awareness born of deep listening, this book offers practical and poetic insights for researchers, practitioners, and students of sound.
