For the last four decades, parallel computing platforms have increasingly formed the basis for the development of high performance systems primarily aimed at the solution of intensive computing problems, and the application of parallel computing systems has also become a major factor in furthering scientific research. But such systems also offer the possibility of solving the problems encountered in the processing of large-scale scientific data sets, as well as in the analysis of Big Data in the fields of medicine, social media, marketing, economics etc. This book presents papers from the International Research Workshop on Advanced High Performance Computing Systems, held in Cetraro, Italy, in July 2016. The workshop covered a wide range of topics and new developments related to the solution of intensive and large-scale computing problems, and the contributions included in this volume cover aspects of the evolution of parallel platforms and highlight some of the problems encountered with the development of ever more powerful computing systems. The importance of future large-scale data science applications is also discussed. The book will be of particular interest to all those involved in the development or application of parallel computing systems.

Revised edition of Transportation planning handbook, 2009.
This book on performance fundamentals covers UNIX, OpenVMS, Linux, Windows, and MVS. Most of the theory and systems design principles can be applied to other operating systems, as can some of the benchmarks. The book equips professionals with the ability to assess performance characteristics in unfamiliar environments. It is suitable for practitioners, especially those whose responsibilities include performance management, tuning, and capacity planning. IT managers with a technical outlook also benefit from the book as well as consultants and students in the world of systems for the first time in a professional capacity.
This book gives the reader a realistic perspective of what management is and what managers really do. Management as a profession is dynamic, challenging and exciting for those who want to excel at it. Each day brings new and often unanticipated challenges despite the plans made by even the best managers and leaders. The relatively new challenges of sustainable development are integrated into every chapter of this book. The authors have included the most recent management thinking and research, as well as the contemporary application of management ideas in organisations. The combination of established scholarship, new ideas and real-life applications gives students a taste of the energy, challenge and adventure inherent in the dynamic field of management Along with current management theory and practice, the text integrates coverage of social media and new technology throughout This fifth edition includes new emphases on Entrepreneurship and Innovation, a growing area of importance and interest in management studies and the foregrounding of management as an Integrative Practice. There will be linkages of topics within and across chapters, reflective of management as it occurs.
High Performance Buildings: A Guide for Owners and Managers, is a template - a blueprint for action for those making decisions about how to improve the energy efficiency and performance of new or existing buildings. It is designed to have broad appeal, both for the seasoned veteran facility or energy manager and for the new manager alike, but can also be utilized as a practical desk reference by professionals such as architects, engineers, and construction managers. The full spectrum of topics relevant to achieving optimum building performance is addressed, including analysis of overall building energy use and performance, building commissioning, applicable codes, standards and rating systems, building envelope, onsite power generating options, optimizing performance of building mechanical and electrical equipment, and importance of effective building operation and maintenance practices. Fundamental principles are discussed and illustrated with case studies.
The design, construction, operation, and retrofit of buildings is evolving in response to ever-increasing knowledge about the impact of indoor environments on people and the impact of buildings on the environment. Research has shown that the quality of indoor environments can affect the health, safety, and productivity of the people who occupy them. Buildings are also resource intensive, accounting for 40 percent of primary energy use in the United States, 12 percent of water consumption, and 60 percent of all non-industrial waste. The processes for producing electricity at power plants and delivering it for use in buildings account for 40 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. federal government manages approximately 429,000 buildings of many types with a total square footage of 3.34 billion worldwide, of which about 80 percent is owned space. More than 30 individual departments and agencies are responsible for managing these buildings. The characteristics of each agency's portfolio of facilities are determined by its mission and its programs. In 2010, GSA's Office of Federal High-Performance Green Buildings asked the National Academies to appoint an ad hoc committee of experts to conduct a public workshop and prepare a report that identified strategies and approaches for achieving a range of objectives associated with high-performance green federal buildings. Achieving High-Performance Federal Facilities identifies examples of important initiatives taking place and available resources. The report explores how these examples could be used to help make sustainability the preferred choice at all levels of decision making. Achieving High-Performance Federal Facilities can serve as a valuable guide federal agencies with differing missions, types of facilities, and operating procedures.
High performance buildings maximize operational energy savings; improve comfort, health, & safety of occupants & visitors; & limit detrimental effects on the environment. These Guidelines provide instruction in the new methodologies that form the underpinnings of high performance buildings. They further indicate how these practices may be accommodated within existing frameworks of capital project administration & facility management. Chapters: city process; design process; site design & planning; building energy use; indoor environment; material & product selection; water mgmt.; construction admin.; commissioning; & operations & maintenance.
