Recent Advances in Technologies

Edited by Maurizio Adriano Strangio

University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy

The techniques of computer modelling and simulation are increasingly important in many fields of science since they allow quantitative examination and evaluation of  the most complex hypothesis. Furthermore, by taking advantage of the enormous amount of computational resources available on modern computers scientists are able to suggest scenarios and results that are more significant than ever. This book brings together recent work describing novel and advanced modelling and analysis techniques applied to many different research areas.
