Air traffic controllers need advanced information and automated systems to provide a safe environment for everyone traveling by plane. One of the primary challenges in developing training for automated systems is to determine how much a trainee will need to know about the underlying technologies to use automation safely and efficiently. To ensure safety and success, task analysis techniques should be used as the basis of the design for training in automated systems in the aviation and aerospace industries. Automated Systems in the Aviation and Aerospace Industries is a pivotal reference source that provides vital research on the application of underlying technologies used to enforce automation safety and efficiency. While highlighting topics such as expert systems, text mining, and human-machine interface, this publication explores the concept of constructing navigation algorithms, based on the use of video information and the methods of the estimation of the availability and accuracy parameters of satellite navigation. This book is ideal for aviation professionals, researchers, and managers seeking current research on information technology used to reduce the risk involved in aviation.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 28th International Conference on Applications and Theory of Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency, ICATPN 2007, held in Siedlce, Poland. It covers all current issues on research and development in the area of Petri nets and modeling of concurrent systems including system design and verification, structure and behavior of nets, logical and algebraic calculi, and standardization of nets.
This book is a comprehensive, systematic survey of the synthesis problem, and of region theory which underlies its solution, covering the related theory, algorithms, and applications. The authors focus on safe Petri nets and place/transition nets (P/T-nets), treating synthesis as an automated process which, given behavioural specifications or partial specifications of a system to be realized, decides whether the specifications are feasible, and then produces a Petri net realizing them exactly, or if this is not possible produces a Petri net realizing an optimal approximation of the specifications. In Part I the authors introduce elementary net synthesis. In Part II they explain variations of elementary net synthesis and the unified theory of net synthesis. The first three chapters of Part III address the linear algebraic structure of regions, synthesis of P/T-nets from finite initialized transition systems, and the synthesis of unbounded P/T-nets. Finally, the last chapter in Part III and the chapters in Part IV cover more advanced topics and applications: P/T-net with the step firing rule, extracting concurrency from transition systems, process discovery, supervisory control, and the design of speed-independent circuits. Most chapters conclude with exercises, and the book is a valuable reference for both graduate students of computer science and electrical engineering and researchers and engineers in this domain.
This volume consists of invited papers written by eminent researchers working in the areas of theoretical computer science. The contents of the papers reflect the current trend of research being carried out in each of the areas. Some of the areas featured are petri-nets, distributed systems, map-generating systems, Lindenmayer systems, logic, cryptography, graph grammars, probabilistic automata, array grammars and pattern recognition. Many of these areas contain open problems and it is hoped that younger research workers will be motivated to work on them. In addition, some of the models designed, constructed and presented are suitable for practical applications such as in computer graphics, cryptography and distributed computing. Contents:The Constructive Engine (G Huet)Complexity of Acceptance Problems for Two-Dimensional Automata (K Inoue)Decidability and Undecidability in Distributed Transition Systems (R Parikh)An Architecture for Picture Parsing (A Rosenfeld)A Petri Net Model of Asynchronously Communicating Sequential Processes (M Mukund & P S Thiagarajan)and also other papers by K Culik II & J Karhumahi, N Koblitz, M Kudlek, K Krithivasan, A Nakamura, A Paz, Z Pawlak, A Salomaa, R K Shayamasundar, P S P Wang, V R Dare & K G Subramanian Readership: Computer scientists and mathematicians.
This is the first textbook treatment of the algebraic approach to graph transformation, based on algebraic structures and category theory. It contains an introduction to classical graphs. Basic and advanced results are first shown for an abstract form of replacement systems and are then instantiated to several forms of graph and Petri net transformation systems. The book develops typed attributed graph transformation and contains a practical case study.
