Active System Control Design of System Resilience by Igor Schagaev( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book introduces an approach to active system control design and development to improve the properties of our technological systems. It extends concepts of control and data accumulation by explaining how the system model should be organized to improve the properties of the system under consideration. The authors define these properties as reliability, performance and energy-efficiency, and self-adaption. They describe how they bridge the gap between data accumulation and analysis in terms of interpolation with the real physical models when data used for interpretation of the system conditions. The authors introduce a principle of active system control and safety—an approach that explains what a model of a system should have, making computer systems more efficient, a crucial new concern in application domains such as safety critical, embedded and low-power autonomous systems like transport, healthcare, and other dynamic systems with moving substances and elements. On a theoretical level, this book further extends the concept of fault tolerance, introducing a system level of design for improving overall efficiency. On a practical level it illustrates how active system approach might help our systems be self-evolving. Presents the rationale for, and theory of, redundancy, presented for easy application in system design; Describes the role of activeness in system design in terms of what is needed to making systems efficient; Estimates the benefit of using a new approach of active system control system

Young orphan Pip wants no more from life than to one day join his brother-in-law Joe at the blacksmith's forge. Until, that is, fate intervenes - twice. First, an escaped convict (Winstone) ambushes Pip in the marshes; and not long after, a wealthy, reclusive neighbor at the macabre Satis House - Miss Havisham (Andersen) - seeks Pip out as a playmate for her adopted daughter, Estella. Pip falls almost instantly in love with Estella, and realizes that he needs to be more than a simple blacksmith's apprentice if he ever hopes to win her. But Miss Havisham - a bride-to-be who was jilted at the altar years ago and still wears her wedding dress amidst the fossilized ruins of her wedding feast - has gone to great lengths to ensure that Estella will never so much as risk heartbreak, raising her more as a tool for vengeance than a child. But when Pip is mysteriously plucked from obscurity and lured to London by an anonymous benefactor hoping to make a gentleman out of him, he suddenly has unlimited wealth at his disposal - and true love in his future. Or so he thinks

Missional youth ministry : moving from gathering teenagers to scattering disciples by Brian Kirk( Book )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Missional Youth Ministry offers a new paradigm for youth ministry. Using blog entries and responses, authors Brian Kirk and Jacob Thorne invite readers into a conversational, engaging, and compelling discussion about why program-based, entertainment-focused ministries fail to develop young people into life-long participants in the mission of the church. They also propose a new way forward. For all those working 'in the trenches' of youth ministry who long to offer teens a deeper, more substantial, more active role as members of the body of Christ, Missional Youth Ministry is a practical and theologically-sound guide for building a ministry grounded in prayer, worship, community, education, mission, and spirituality
