This book concerns an investigation how modern technology could be used to enhance children’s learning, which had an outcome in an application for Android tablets. A theory study was conducted regarding what is considered as good pedagogics and what is needed in order to motivate students to learn. This study stood as a foundation while conceptualizing the resulting application. The final application is called Flisan at the supermarket and is an educational application with gaming components, directed to 7-year-old boys and girls. This degree project is done in collaboration with the interaction design agency Screen Interaction.
The term 'ASIC' stands for 'application-specific integrated circuit'. An ASIC is basically an integrated circuit designed specifically for a special purpose or application. Strictly speaking, this also implies that an ASIC is built only for one and only one customer. An example of an ASIC is an IC designed for a specific line of cellular phones of a company, whereby no other products can use it except the cell phones belonging to that product line. The opposite of an ASIC is a standard product or general purpose IC, such as a logic gate or a general purpose microcontroller, both of which can be used in any electronic application by anybody.

The purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the different types of image file formats and their processing, and to present an application based on a technique of image search called content-based image retrieval. The application uses Google to retrieve results that are similar to an original image. The application searches for similar images by comparing the colour composition of regions in the template image to the colour composition of regions in the candidate image. The purpose of the application is to be used as an aid for the Google search engine.
Operations Research (OR) is a branch of mathematics which is concerned with the application of scientific methods and techniques to decision making problems. The optimum seeking methods are also known as mathematical programming techniques and are generally studied as a part of OR. Stochastic Programming, a mathematical programming technique for modeling and solution of optimization problems with uncertain data parameters, especially when we have random variables with known distributions. An application of Stochastic programming to the optimization of Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM) data communication networks design.
Application security encompasses measures taken throughout the application’s life-cycle to prevent exceptions in the security policy of an application or the underlying system (vulnerabilities) through flaws in the design, development, deployment, upgrade, or maintenance of the application. Applications only control the use of resources granted to them, and not which resources are granted to them. They, in turn, determine the use of these resources by users of the application through application security.

This book is an advancement of the Age-Structured Matrix by introduced by Leslie P.H. in 1945. It gives an Extension that was not foreseen by Leslie, where individuals exhibit Migration characteristics. The text is ideal in the study of population structures for any Undergraduate or Graduate studies both in the areas of Mathematical Biology and Population Ecology. An application has been made to estimation of population size and structure of whale sharks. Only one application has been discussed, but the model is sufficient for wide applications in population dynamics.

Here an attempt has been made to discuss the application of Queueing theory as applicable to hospital registration services i.e. outpatient registrations, inpatient registrations and registration for ICU admissions. Then illustrates the practical application of queueing theory to a simple problem in manpower planning: how large staff is required to give adequate service for a central laboratory? The problem is simple enough to be amenable to an analytic solution, and the optimal solution arrived at by the use of queueing theory resulted in a considerable saving to the central laboratory studied. A model of the patient care process, based on queueing theory, is described and its parameters defined empirically for application to an ICU unit. The model is descriptive, with an output of expected waiting times for various priorities of patient demand. The waiting times so estimated constitute an index of the quality of nursing care and afford a means of predicting changes in quality with changes in staffing or inpatient load. The model facilitates investigation of the relationships among three factors: patient condition, nurses' activity priorities, and patient load per nurse.

The story of Hester Prynne--found out in adultery, pilloried by her Puritan community, and abandoned, in different ways, by both her partner in sin and her vengeance-seeking husband--possesses a reality heightened by Hawthorne's pure human sympathy and his unmixed devotion to his supposedly fallen but fundamentally innocent heroine. The Scarlet Letter rightly deserves its stature as the first great novel written by an American, a work of moral force and narrative power that announced an American literature equal to any in the world.
This work presents procedures for generating solutions to the n-Queens problem using 2-circulant matrices, maximal cliques of graphs and 0-1 integer programming. Some constructions on matrices to prove that a solution exists for n > 3 are also presented. The use of maximal cliques is an application from the field of graph theory; the use of 0-1 integer programming is an application from the field of operations research.
