Series: Horizons in Computer Science
BISAC: COM014000

This book presents original results on the leading edge of computer science research. Each article has been carefully selected in an attempt to present substantial research results across a broad spectrum. Topics discussed include coverage and intrusion detection in wireless sensor networks; computer networks, the internet, and green IT; security in wireless sensor networks; performance of tree routing topology for wireless sensor networks using different platforms; location estimation in modern mobile computing environments; methodologies and processes language for the software industry; design of Luria memory test for older adults on mobile devices; synchronizing nods of a computer-generated character and a speaker using thermal image processing; evaluation of effective parameters of energy consumption in wireless sensor networks; computer aided-thermal module design; and a high performance hybrid FAT32 file system.
