This book provides a comprehensive overview of the latest research and standardization progress towards the 5th generation (5G) of mobile communications technology and beyond. It covers a wide range of topics from 5G use cases and their requirements, to spectrum, 5G end-to-end (E2E) system architecture including core network (CN), transport network (TN) and radio access network (RAN) architecture, network slicing, security and network management. It further dives into the detailed functional design and the evaluation of different 5G concepts, and provides details on planned trials and pre-commercial deployments across the globe. While the book naturally captures the latest agreements in 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) New Radio (NR) Release 15, it goes significantly beyond this by describing the likely developments towards the final 5G system that will ultimately utilize a wide range of spectrum bands, address all envisioned 5G use cases, and meet or exceed the International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) requirements for the year 2020 and beyond (IMT-2020). 5G System Design: Architectural and Functional Considerations and Long Term Research> is based on the knowledge and consensus from 158 leading researchers and standardization experts from 54 companies or institutes around the globe, representing key mobile network operators, network vendors, academic institutions and regional bodies for 5G. Different from earlier books on 5G, it does not focus on single 5G technology components, but describes the full 5G system design from E2E architecture to detailed functional design, including details on 5G performance, implementation and roll-out.</ '</ </ '</ </ '</ </ '</ </ '</ '</

The investigation of the behavior of ferromagnetic particles in an external magnetic field is important for use in a wide range of applications in magnetostatics problems, from biomedicine to engineering. To the best of the author's knowledge, the systematic analysis for this kind of investigation is not available in the current literature. Therefore, this book contributes a complete solution for investigating the behavior of two ferromagnetic spherical particles, immersed in a uniform magnetic field, by obtaining exact mathematical models on a boundary value problem. While there are a vast number of common numerical and analytical methods for solving boundary value problems in the literature, the rapidly growing complexity of these solutions causes increase usage of the computer tools in practical cases. We analytically solve the boundary value problem by using a special technique called a bispherical coordinates system and the numerical computations were obtained by a computer tool. In addition to these details, we will present step-by-step instructions with simple explanations throughout the book, in an effort to act as inspiration in the reader's own modeling for relevant applications in science and engineering. On the other hand, the resulting analytical expressions will constitute benchmark solutions for specified geometric arrangements, which are beneficial for determining the validity of other relevant numerical techniques. The generated results are analyzed quantitatively as well as qualitatively in various approaches. Moreover, the methodology of this book can be adopted for real-world applications in the fields of ferrohydrodynamics, applied electromagnetics, fluid dynamics, electrical engineering, and so forth. Higher-level university students, academics, engineers, scientists, and researchers involved in the aforementioned fields are the intended audience for this book.

This book results from many years of teaching an upper division course on communication networks in the EECS department at the University of California, Berkeley. It is motivated by the perceived need for an easily accessible textbook that puts emphasis on the core concepts behind current and next generation networks. After an overview of how today's Internet works and a discussion of the main principles behind its architecture, we discuss the key ideas behind Ethernet, WiFi networks, routing, internetworking, and TCP. To make the book as self-contained as possible, brief discussions of probability and Markov chain concepts are included in the appendices. This is followed by a brief discussion of mathematical models that provide insight into the operations of network protocols. Next, the main ideas behind the new generation of wireless networks based on LTE, and the notion of QoS are presented. A concise discussion of the physical layer technologies underlying various networks is also included. Finally, a sampling of topics is presented that may have significant influence on the future evolution of networks, including overlay networks like content delivery and peer-to-peer networks, sensor networks, distributed algorithms, Byzantine agreement, source compression, SDN and NFV, and Internet of Things.

  • The domestication of counterinsurgency
  • From counterinsurgency to the counterrevolution.
A distinguished political theorist sounds the alarm about the counterinsurgency strategies used to govern Americans Militarized police officers with tanks and drones. Pervasive government surveillance and profiling. Social media that distract and track us. All of these, contends Bernard E. Harcourt, are facets of a new and radical governing paradigm in the United States--one rooted in the modes of warfare originally developed to suppress anticolonial revolutions and, more recently, to prosecute the war on terror. The Counterrevolution is a penetrating and disturbing account of the rise of counterinsurgency, first as a military strategy but increasingly as a way of ruling ordinary Americans. Harcourt shows how counterinsurgency's principles--bulk intelligence collection, ruthless targeting of minorities, pacifying propaganda--have taken hold domestically despite the absence of any radical uprising. This counterrevolution against phantom enemies, he argues, is the tyranny of our age. Seeing it clearly is the first step to resisting it effectively.
