Monitoring of Respiration and Circulation provides biomedical engineers with a comprehensive source for understanding the variables of the respiratory and circulatory systems, which indicate how well these systems are functioning. This book covers techniques for measuring the variables, including modeling, medical instrumentation, and signal processing. It also discusses the reasons for the measurements.
A Guide to Choosing Your Children's Schools & Monitoring Their School Experiences is a must read for all current and prospective parents, ideally before their children reach school age. It will help them plan ahead to ensure successful educational experience for their children. The first part of the book draws attention to various factors parents should, but do not always, consider that affect their children's education. For example, what school is best for my child: Public or private; Charter, County or City school? Where you buy a home may take these choices out of your hands! The book challenges parents to use readily available information in print and on the internet, regarding school academic history, location, resources, curriculum and extra-curricular offerings, to plan ahead. It encourages parents to make deliberate choices that would position their children in the neighborhoods that would place them in the best schools. The second part of the book argues for, and illustrates, why parents should closely monitor their children's experiences from pre-school through high school, even in the best of schools. The book concludes with suggestions on various ways parents can forge effective partnerships with the school/teacher to facilitate a successful experience for their children/ward.
This book covers the basic statistical and analytical techniques of computer intrusion detection. It is aimed at both statisticians looking to become involved in the data analysis aspects of computer security and computer scientists looking to expand their toolbox of techniques for detecting intruders. The book is self-contained, assumng no expertise in either computer security or statistics. It begins with a description of the basics of TCP/IP, followed by chapters dealing with network traffic analysis, network monitoring for intrusion detection, host based intrusion detection, and computer viruses and other malicious code. Each section develops the necessary tools as needed. There is an extensive discussion of visualization as it relates to network data and intrusion detection. The book also contains a large bibliography covering the statistical, machine learning, and pattern recognition literature related to network monitoring and intrusion detection. David Marchette is a scientist at the Naval Surface Warfacre Center in Dalhgren, Virginia. He has worked at Navy labs for 15 years, doing research in pattern recognition, computational statistics, and image analysis. He has been a fellow by courtesy in the mathematical sciences department of the Johns Hopkins University since 2000. He has been working in conputer intrusion detection for several years, focusing on statistical methods for anomaly detection and visualization. Dr. Marchette received a Masters in Mathematics from the University of California, San Diego in 1982 and a Ph.D. in Computational Sciences and Informatics from George Mason University in 1996.
