The highly competitive environment in today's wireless and cellular network industries is making the management of systems seek for better and more advance techniques to keep masses of data, complexity of systems and deadline constrains under control with a lower cost and higher efficiency. Therefore, the management is getting significant attentions by researchers in order to increase the efficiency of the resource usage to provide high quality services. Two of the cornerstones of the management system in wireless and cellular network are carrier assignment and packet scheduling. Therefore, this work focuses on analysis and development of carrier assignment and packet scheduling methods in multi-band Wi-Fi and LTE-A networks.
The efficient management of Change Requests (CRs) is fundamental for successful software maintenance; however the assignment of CRs to developers is an expensive aspect in this regard, due to the time and expertise demanded. To overcome this, researchers have proposed automated approaches for CR assignment. Although these proposals present advances to this topic, they do not consider many factors inherent to the assignments, such as: developers’ workload, CRs severity, interpersonal relationships, and developers know-how. Actually, as we demonstrate in this work, CR assignment is a complex activity and automated approaches cannot rely on simplistic solutions. Ideally, it is necessary to consider and reason over contextual information in order to provide an effective automation. Beyond investigating all these aspects through an extensive systematic literature review, this work also proposes a context-aware architecture solution to semi-automated assignment of CRs.

This study is situated within the field of instructional design and sought to identify competencies specific to online designers-by-assignment in high school learning environments. Since existing instructional design standards currently available to guide designers-by-assignment differ from one another, a lack of clarity remains about which specific standards actually benefit this emerging professional group in the process of developing and revising courses they eventually teach. The purpose of this qualitative Delphi study was to identify, through expert agreement, instructional design competencies that can benefit high school online designers-by-assignment and the instructional design profession. This study employed the qualitative Delphi design to achieve consensus among experts in five fields (high school online practitioners, instructional design academics, university pre-service instructors, online high school administrators and high school online instructional designers).
Revision with unchanged content. This study investigated the influence of computer-generated reminders on the rate in which distance learners submitted assignments and completed courses. The computer-generated reminders, sent via email, served as a time management support strategy. Participants were randomly divided into two groups: control and treatment. Both groups received a list of target due dates for course assignments. The control group did not receive reminders. The treatment group received reminders when they failed to submit an assignment by a target due date. The results indicated no significant difference between the control and treatment groups in terms of assignment submission rates and course completion rates. However, results of this study did reveal that the number of assignments in a distance course influences the timeliness of assignment completion and the likelihood of course completion.
When dealing with stress assignment on the word level, many exceptions to hitherto defined principles can be found in the English language. While some exceptions can be explained by word or morpheme boundaries, others do not fit so easliy into the underlying systematicity of English stress behaviour. Some are often described as simply being idiosyncratic. A new statistical analysis reveals that many of these exceptions do share some common features to a certain extent, in particular in their orthography. Can this kind of features be used to establish additional rules in order to account for exceptional cases of English stress assignment? Or is there no other means but to consider these cases as lexcially exceptional?
This book explains the port operations and proposes approaches that aim to improve the most important successive steps in container terminal management activities. A multi-period assignment problem that seeks to allocate vessels to berthing spaces and quay cranes is proposed to handle the quayside operations. Subsequently, on the yard side, a discrete-event simulation model for the real life detailed processes performed during the handling of import containers is developed. In particular, the model focuses on the storage assignment problem at the operational level in a container terminal with a multiple-berth structure. An approach by means of a hierarchical structure is adapted to partition the assignment problem into two sub-problems and solve each of them using separate decision rules. Suggested storage policies are evaluated in view of the overall performance of the container terminal.
Islamic periods witnessed dramatic transformation through continuous dialectic relations between the built environment and human activity which in turn caused rich development for the features and urban spaces of the built environment that correlated strongly with actual human needs. This book reviews evidence on the ideality of built environment from Islamic point of view. The book solely dedicated to the Islamic concept in built environment and highlighted the hidden spirit in the Islamic urban form. The book is an opportunity to introduce readers to the principles of Islamic values which produced the unique built environment in a way that contributes bridging the gaps in this field of research.
Light is important for sight of human to function properly. Without lights, moving and doing things will be difficult. It is the reason why we are able to see things and moving around us.What we are seeing is it stimulates our sight then sends signal to the brain that deciphers information allowing us to understand and recognize . The goal of lighting is to make the environment visible, the visual environment is a visible environment. The aim of lighting is to create an adequate visual environment.
‘Environment’ simply means ‘surroundings’ and that is why Einstein defined as “Environment is everything that isn’t me”. The environment is everything that surrounds us, including the air, the land, the oceans, and all livings things, the relationship between human being and his environment has varied from time to time. Over the course of the last century, the relationship between human beings and the planet on which they live changed fundamentally. Man is nature’s best promise and worst enemy. There is a close relationship which exists between a healthy environment and economic condition of the community at large. It is a basic right of all to live in a healthy environment. Different society has, time immemorial, been conscious of the necessity of protecting environment and ecology. The main motto of social life has been “to live in harmony with nature”. It was regarded as a sacred duty of everyone to protect them.It is difficult to clearly delineate the causes and consequences of environmental degradation in terms of simple one-to-one relationships. The causes and effects are often interwoven in complex webs of social, technological and environmental factors.

Architecture and built environment clearly co-exist in terms of interaction, interdependency and mutual borrowing. Today, alongside the traditional task of designing architecture, understanding the complexity of the built environment remains a challenge for architects and planners. This book studies decentralization, wholeness and the relations of dominance in form and space, and a specific theoretical framework is created to approach the inherent underlying order of the built environment. Three case studies based on different built environments are used to demonstrate the potential of the analytical and interpretational method proposed in the specific framework, and to create operative links with the urban design process. The findings confirm the applicability of the framework and contribute greater knowledge of the built environment. This greater understanding reveals a constant relation between endogenous and external models, and some suggestions for their coexistence are discussed.
This book aims to explore the relationship among three elements of the restaurant physical environment (i.e., ambient conditions, decor and artifacts, and spatial layout), emotional response, hedonic experience and consume behavioral intentions.The findings reveal that the three factors of the physical environment strongly influenced by customers emotional response, hedonic experience and consume behavioral intentions. Simultaneously, both emotional response and hedonic experience also positively affected consume behavioral intentions. Hedonic experience was the most significant predictors that affected consume behavioral intentions.This study emphasize how important it is that managers of restaurant consider the significance of the physical environment construct of design that it contributes positively to customer’s emotional response, hedonic experience and consume behavioral intentions of service settings. This research represents an attempt to develop a more comprehensive model explain how physical environment affect customer emotional response, hedonic experience and consume behavioral intentions.

In this book several multilayer particle deposition models are studied using simulations and analytical calculations. Multilayer particle deposition models are an extension of the classic car parking problem, first studied by the Hungarian mathematician Renyi. Several interesting properties of these type of processes are revealed. The focus of the book lies on the non-equality of end-densities of the layers. In some models the end-densities are lower in higher layers whereas in other models the end-densities are higher in higher layers. It is shown that in the latter case this is a result of self-organization. As an application, the results are used to analyze the so-called sequential frequency assignment process. For this purpose, the assignment of radio frequencies by national telecom authorities (using the foremost priority procedure) is regarded as a two-dimensional multilayer deposition model with discs.
