This book provides a formal analysis of alternative, non-relational data models and storage mechanisms and gives a decent overview of non-SQL query languages. It describes a perspective beyond SQL and relational database management systems and thus covers the theoretical background of modern data management. It also helps to take informed decisions about what database systems to use.

The book addresses the impact of ambient intelligence, particularly its user-centric context-awareness requirement on data management strategies and solutions. Techniques of conceptualizing, capturing, protecting, modelling, and querying context information, as well as context-aware data management application are discussed, making the book is an essential reference for computer scientists, information scientists and industrial engineers.

This book discusses questions of numerical solutions of applied problems on parallel computing systems. Nowadays, engineering and scientific computations are carried out on parallel computing systems, which provide parallel data processing on a few computing nodes. In constructing computational algorithms, mathematical problems are separated in relatively independent subproblems in order to solve them on a single computing node.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is the most popular method for chemists to analyze molecular structures while Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive diagnostic tool for medical doctors that provides high-contrast images of biological tissue depicting the brain function and the beating heart. The book offers a basic introduction to NMR with portable devices, the equipment, the experimental set-up, types of NMR experiments, example applications, and data evaluation procedures. Each description follows the same didactic pattern: introduction, basic theory, pulse sequences and parameters, beginners-level measurements, advanced-level measurements, data processing. Mobile NMR simplified to approach the level of operating a smart phone!

Covering both physical as well as mathematical and algorithmic foundations, this graduate textbook provides the reader with an introduction into modern biomedical imaging and image processing and reconstruction. These techniques are not only based on advanced instrumentation for image acquisition, but equally on new developments in image processing and reconstruction to extract relevant information from recorded data. To this end, the present book offers a quantitative treatise of radiography, computed tomography, and medical physics. Contents Introduction Digital image processing Essentials of medical x-ray physics Tomography Radiobiology, radiotherapy, and radiation protection Phase contrast radiography Object reconstruction under nonideal conditions
