Grid Computing
Designed for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students, Grid Computing : Techniques and Applications shows professors how to teach this subject in a practical way. Extensively classroom-tested, it covers job submission and scheduling, Grid security, Grid computing services and software tools, graphical user interfaces, workflow editors, and Grid-enabling applications. The book begins with an introduction that discusses the use of a Grid computing Web-based portal. It then examines the underlying action of job submission using a command-line interface and the use of a job scheduler. After describing both general Internet security techniques and specific security mechanisms developed for Grid computing, the author focuses on Web services technologies and how they are adopted for Grid computing. He also discusses the advantages of using a graphical user interface over a command-line interface and presents a graphical workflow editor that enables users to compose sequences of computational tasks visually using a simple drag-and-drop interface. The final chapter explains how to deploy applications on a Grid. The Grid computing platform offers much more than simply running an application at a remote site. It also enables multiple, geographically distributed computers to collectively obtain increased speed and fault tolerance. Illustrating this kind of resource discovery, this practical text encompasses the varied and interconnected aspects of Grid computing, including how to design a system infrastructure and Grid portal. Supplemental Web Resources The author's Web site offers various instructional resources, including slides and links to software for programming assignments. Many of these assignments do not require access to a Grid platform. Instead, the author provides step-by-step instructions for installing open-source software to deploy and test Web and Grid services, a Grid computing workflow editor to design and test workflows, and a Grid computing portal to deploy portlets.

Petascale Computing
Although the highly anticipated petascale computers of the near future will perform at an order of magnitude faster than today's quickest supercomputer, the scaling up of algorithms and applications for this class of computers remains a tough challenge. From scalable algorithm design for massive concurrency toperformance analyses and scientific visualization, Petascale Computing: Algorithms and Applications captures the state of the art in high-performance computing algorithms and applications. Featuring contributions from the world's leading experts in computational science, this edited collection explores the use of petascale computers for solving the most difficult scientific and engineering problems of the current century. Covering a wide range of important topics, the book illustrates how petascale computing can be applied to space and Earth science missions, biological systems, weather prediction, climate science, disasters, black holes, and gamma ray bursts. It details the simulation of multiphysics, cosmological evolution, molecular dynamics, and biomolecules. The book also discusses computational aspects that include the Uintah framework, Enzo code, multithreaded algorithms, petaflops, performance analysis tools, multilevel finite element solvers, finite element code development, Charm++, and the Cactus framework. Supplying petascale tools, programming methodologies, and an eight-page color insert, this volume addresses the challenging problems of developing application codes that can take advantage of the architectural features of the new petascale systems in advance of their first deployment.

Membrane Computing
This volume contains a selection of papers presented at the Eighth Workshop on Membrane Computing, WMC8, which took place in Thessaloniki, Greece, during June 2528, 2008. The ?rst three workshops on membrane computing were organized in Curtea de Arge s, Romania they took place in August 2000 (with the proceedings published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science,volume 2235), in August 2001 (with a selection of papers published as a special issue of Fundamenta Informaticae, volume 49, numbers 13, 2002), and in August 2002 (with the proceedings published in Lecture Notes in Computer Science, volume 2597). The next four workshops were organized in Tarragona, Spain, in July 2003, in Milan, Italy, in June 2004, in Vienna, Austria, in July 2005, and in Leiden, The Netherlands, in July 2006, with the proceedings published as volumes 2933, 3365, 3850, and 4361, respectively, of Lecture Notes in Computer Science. The 2007 edition of WMC was organized by the South-East European - search Centre in Thessaloniki, under the auspices of the European Molecular Computing Consortium (EMCC). Special attention was paid to the interaction of membrane computing with biology and computer science, focusing on the - ological roots of membrane computing, on applications of membrane computing in biology and medicine, and on possible electronically based implementations. The pre-proceedings of WMC8 were published by the South-East European Research Centre, Thessaloniki, and they were available during the workshop. Each paper was refereed by two members of the Program Committee.

Computing Action
Computing Action takes a new approach to the phenomenon of narrated action in literary texts. It begins with a survey of philosophical approaches to the concept of action, ranging from analytical to transcendental and finally constructivist definitions. This leads to the formulation of a new model of action, in which the core definitions developed in traditional structuralist narratology and Greimassian semiotics are reconceptualised in the light of constructivist theories. In the second part of the study, the combinatory model of action proposed is put into practice in the context of a computer-aided investigation of the action constructs logically implied by narrative texts. Two specialised literary computing tools were developed for the purposes of this investigation of textual data: EVENTPARSER, an interactive tool for parsing events in literary texts, and EPITEST, a tool for subjecting the mark-up files thus produced to a combinatory analysis of the episode and action constructs they contain. The third part of the book presents a case study of Goethe's Unterhaltungen deutscher Ausgewanderten. Here, the practical application of theory and methodology eventually leads to a new interpretation of Goethe's famous Novellenzyklus as a systematic experiment in the narrative construction of action - an experiment intended to demonstrate not only Goethe's aesthetic principles, but also, and more fundamentally, his epistemological convictions.

Trusted Computing
Trusted Computing markiert einen grundstzlichen Wandel der IT-Sicherheitsarchitekturen. Erstmals werden die Potenziale von sicherer integrierten Hard- und Software verfgbar. Seit 1999 sind die wesentlichen Konzepte, Standards, Baugruppen und Softwaremodule entwickelt und zur Anwendungsreife gebracht worden. Das Buch fasst die vorliegenden Grundlagen zusammen. Es behandelt erstmals wichtige Anwendungsszenarien mit signifikantem Sicherheitsgewinn fr IT-Systembetreiber und -anwender. Besonders bercksichtigt wird dabei Open Source Software als Beitrag zur Vertrauenswrdigkeit der Lsungen. Es wird gezeigt, dass Trusted Computing die traditionellen chipkartenbasierten Konzepte der IT-Sicherheit wirkungsvoll ergnzt und dass Datenschutz und andere rechtliche Vorgaben erfllt werden.
