Safety-Critical Systems: The Convergence of High Tech and by R. C. Sugden, M. R. Strens, J. E. Dobson (auth.), Felix

By R. C. Sugden, M. R. Strens, J. E. Dobson (auth.), Felix Redmill, Tom Anderson (eds.)

Safety-critical platforms, within the feel of software-based platforms utilized in security­ severe purposes, are 'high-tech'. they're items of contemporary expertise. Their powerful, effective and secure functioning relies not just at the devel­ opment of the proper applied sciences but additionally at the correct use of them. the protection of a approach should be compromised not just by way of faults within the procedure but additionally by means of the use within the first position of an unreliable, hazardous, or unproved expertise in its improvement. the major to the advance and use of either applied sciences and platforms is the man or woman. till lately, the significance of human involvement, except on the direct operational point, used to be hardly ever admitted. yet now the unreliability of people is acknowledged, as is the potential of latent faults to be brought into structures at any aspect of their lifestyles cycles, via all who're in­ volved with them, together with designers and strategic selection makers.

Crystallization of Nanoscaled Colloids by Philip G. Born

By Philip G. Born

This thesis bargains with the approaches that create ordered assemblies from disordered nanoparticles. Ordered packings of nanoscale debris can convey strange houses. This paintings investigates the self-assembly of such debris, a strategy largely hired for the new release of ordered buildings, yet now not but good understood. In situ tools are used to monitor the meeting of sub-micron polymer lattices and sub-10 nm gold debris into crystalline monolayers and aggregates. at the foundation of those effects, the publication develops new versions that describe the contest among diverse impacts, akin to thermal agitation and directional forces. It indicates important standards that bring about the emergence of order.
