The role of data management becomes more and more crucial in a totally connected world. Having the right data at the right time at the right place is therefore one of the most challenging research issues we face in the coming years. This Festschrift volume is devoted to Hartmut Wedekind on the occasion of his 70th birthday and comprises a total of 18 articles discussing a broad spectrum of issues related to data management. All articles are (co-)authored by academic children and grandchildren of Hartmut Wedekind and therefore reflect the multifaceted selection of academic topics that he explored, discussed, and published on during his academic life. All articles are clustered into four different parts, focusing on motivation and modeling issues, infrastructural services, application design, and finally different applications. The scope of the articles reaches from visionary illustrations of data management in a connected world through core database techniques in the context of database caching, notification services, etc., to the design and description of data-intensive applications.

An integrated approach to environmental data management is necessitated by the complexity of the environmental problems that need to be addresses, coupled with the interdisciplinary approach that needs to be adopted to solve them. Agenda 21 of the Rio Environmental Conference mandated international programmes and organizations to take steps to develop common data and information management plans, and steps have been taken in this direction. The key word that defines the framework of the present book is `integration'. The book establishes the basics of integrated approaches and covers environmental data management systems within that framework, covering all aspects of data management, from objectives and constraints, design of data collection networks, statistical and physical sampling, remote sensing and GIS, databases, reliability of data, data analysis, and the transformation of data into information.

As the information contained in databases has become a critical resource in organizations, efficient access to that information and the ability to share it among different users and across different systems has become an urgent need. The interoperability of heterogeneous database systems-literally, the ability to access information between or among differing types of databases, is the topic of this timely book. In the last two decades, tremendous improvements in tools and technologies have resulted in new products that provide distributed data processing capabilities. This book describes these tools and emerging technologies, explaining the essential concepts behind the topics but focusing on practical applications. Selected products are discussed to illustrate the characteristics of the different technologies. This is an ideal source for anyone who needs a broad perspective on heterogeneous database integration and related technologies.

Students of mathematics learn best when taught by a teacher with a deep and conceptual understanding of the fundamentals of mathematics. In Mathematical Models for Teaching, Ann Kajander and Tom Boland argue that teachers must be equipped with a knowledge of mathematics for teaching, which is grounded in modelling, reasoning, and problem-based learning. A comprehensive exploration of models and concepts, this book promotes an understanding of the material that goes beyond memorization and recitation, which begins with effective teaching. This vital resource is divided into 15 chapters, each of which addresses a specific mathematical concept. Focusing on areas that have been identified as problematic for teachers and students, Mathematical Models for Teaching equips teachers with a different type of mathematical understanding--one that supports and encourages student development. Features: grounded in the most current research about teachers' learning contains cross-chapter connections that identify common ideas includes chapter concluding discussion questions that encourage critical thinking incorporates figures and diagrams that simplify and solidify important mathematical concepts offers further reading suggestions for instructors seeking additional information

* THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * Technological advances have benefited our world in immeasurable ways, but there is an ominous flipside. Criminals are often the earliest, and most innovative, adopters of technology and modern times have led to modern crimes. Today's criminals are stealing identities, draining online bank-accounts and wiping out computer servers. It's disturbingly easy to activate baby cam monitors to spy on families, pacemakers can be hacked to deliver a lethal jolt, and thieves are analyzing your social media in order to determine the best time for a home invasion. Meanwhile, 3D printers produce AK-47s, terrorists can download the recipe for the Ebola virus, and drug cartels are building drones. This is just the beginning of the tsunami of technological threats coming our way. In Future Crimes, Marc Goodman rips open his database of hundreds of real cases to give us front-row access to these impending perils. Reading like a sci-fi thriller, but based in startling fact, Goodman raises tough questions about the expanding role of technology in our lives. Future Crimes is a call to action for better security measures worldwide, but most importantly, will empower readers to protect themselves against these looming technological threats - before it's too late.

The main goal of the new field of data mining is the analysis of large and complex datasets. Some very important datasets may be derived from business and industrial activities. This kind of data is known as OC enterprise dataOCO. The common characteristic of such datasets is that the analyst wishes to analyze them for the purpose of designing a more cost-effective strategy for optimizing some type of performance measure, such as reducing production time, improving quality, eliminating wastes, or maximizing profit. Data in this category may describe different scheduling scenarios in a manufacturing environment, quality control of some process, fault diagnosis in the operation of a machine or process, risk analysis when issuing credit to applicants, management of supply chains in a manufacturing system, or data for business related decision-making. Sample Chapter(s). Foreword (37 KB). Chapter 1: Enterprise Data Mining: A Review and Research Directions (655 KB).
