To investigate the exploitation and contamination by self-propagating Internet worms, a provenance-aware tracing mechanism is highly desirable. Provenance unawareness causes difficulties in fast, accurate identification of a worm’s break-in point, and incurs significant log inspection overhead. This paper presents the design, implementation, and evaluation of process coloring, an efficient provenance-aware approach to worm break-in and contamination tracing. More specifically, process ...

Using complementary codes in conjunction with wideband pulse compression waveforms can yield high resolution spatial and temporal weather measurements with low range sidelobe contamination. For extended targets such as precipitation systems, range sidelobes mask and corrupt observations of weak phenomena occurring near areas of strong echoes. Therefore, having low range sidelobes is extremely important in precisely determining the echo scattering ...

  • Radial-Basis Function Networks

    This chapter focuses on the radial-basis function (RBF) network as an alternative to multilayer perceptrons. It will be interesting to find that in a multilayer perceptron, the function approximation is defined by a nested set of weighted summations, while in a RBF network, the approximation is defined by a single weighted sum. The chapter focuses on the use of a Gaussian function as the radial-basis function. The reason behind the choice of the Gaussian function as the radial-basis function in building RBF networks is that it has many desirable properties, which will become evident as the discussion progresses. It is important to point out that RBF networks and multilayer perceptrons can be trained in alternative ways besides those presented. For multilayer perceptrons, the backpropagation algorithm is simple to compute locally and it performs stochastic gradient descent in weight space when the algorithm is implemented in an online learning mode.

  • PV Arrays in Non¿¿¿homogeneous Conditions

    The design of any photovoltaic (PV) system is based on an awareness of the phenomena that might lead a decrease in plant power production, in real conditions, over its whole lifetime. Mismatching is one of the main sources of power reductions in a PV system's lifetime. The literature describes the closed loop existing between mismatching and cell aging, thus revealing the amplification of the detrimental effects of uneven aging of the cells. This chapter analyzes the main sources of mismatching and describes their effects on power production using data from the current literature. Bypass diodes are key components when the PV array is forced to work in mismatched conditions because of external or internal factors. They allow more power to be extracted from the PV array and to limit the probability of permanent damage to the cells. In some cases, modules are shipped from the factory with some bypass diode failures.

  • The New Limeco Story: How One Produce Company Used Third-Party Food Safety Audit Scores to Improve Its Operation

    Food safety is a major concern of many food operations. Over the past 30 years especially, companies both large and small have focused on ensuring that the food they produce is safe as well as wholesome. Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) programs are designed to prevent food contaminations through chemical, biological, or physical elements and are unique in that they were designed to prevent contamination during production rather than as a system for inspecting finished products. This chapter presents New Limeco's journey to safety. New Limeco is a medium-sized firm located in Homestead, Florida, and an example of one company that has experienced great success with food safety management. While some food firms might view third-party audits as an intrusion, firms with a strong food safety culture, such as New Limeco, benefit greatly from the process of external evaluation and scoring.
