Most problems encountered in practice involve the optimization of multiple criteria. Usually, some of them are conflicting such that no single solution is simultaneously optimal with respect to all criteria, but instead many incomparable compromise solutions exist. In recent years, evidence has accumulated showing that Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs) are effective means of finding good approximate solutions to such problems. One of the crucial parts of EAs consists of repeatedly selecting suitable solutions. In this process, the two key issues are as follows: first, a solution that is better tha

Explains an innovative research project called żSustainable Technologies, Accelerated Research-Transformative Innovation for Develop. and Emergency Support,ż better known as STAR-TIDES. It is an internat., networked, knowledge-sharing effort that encourages innovative approaches to public-private collaboration, whole-of-govżt. solutions, and transnat. engagement. Its goals are to enhance the ability of civilian coalitions to operate in stressed environ., extend the militaryżs ability to work with civilians in such situations, and identify cost-effective logistic solutions.

The Little Book of Semaphores is a textbook that introduces the principles of synchronization for concurrent programming. In most computer science curricula, synchronization is a module in an Operating Systems class. OS textbooks present a standard set of problems with a standard set of solutions, but most students don’t get a good understanding of the material or the ability to solve similar problems. The approach of this book is to identify patterns that are useful for a variety of synchronization problems and then show how they can be assembled into solutions. After each problem, the book

This new book, after two years’ discussion among 70 members in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Australia, and New Zealand, looks at the root causes of global problems and points the way to solutions. It explains the growing gap between rich and poor, offers routes to greater democracy, exposes the global corporate oligarchy, addresses the tyranny of the banking structure, details the concentrated control of media, explores spiritual approaches to sustainable living, and suggest
