Overview

Wireless mesh networking is a new technology that has the potential to revolutionize how we access the Internet and communicate with co-workers and friends. Wireless Mesh Networks examines the concept and explores its advantages over existing technologies. This book explores existing and future applications, and examines how some of the networking protocols operate.

The text offers a detailed analysis of the significant problems affecting wireless mesh networking, including network scale issues, security, and radio frequency interference, and suggests actual and potential solutions for each problem.

Although the book's primary focus is the potential use of wireless mesh networks in the commercial marketplace, it enables readers to gain an appreciation for use of the technology in the office, at government agencies, on campus, and in the home.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Richardson
This book is intended as a text for a one- or two- semester undergraduate introductory course in probability, statistics, and reliability with an emphasis on applications. The authors state that Probability, Statistics, and Reliability for Engineers was developed with an emphasis on engineering and technological problems.....and is intended to better prepare future engineers, as well as assist practicing engineers, in understanding the fundamentals of probability, statistics, and reliability methods, especially thier applications, limitations, and potentials.

Overall, Probability, Statistics, and Reliability for Engineers does a good job presenting real-life examples to illustrate each new concept, but not enough basic, nonapplied examples are given and absolutely no theory is presented to support any of the concepts introduced. It is my opinion that the reader would need prior exposure to statistical concepts in order to read, comprehend, and learn from this book.

This textbook for a first-course in the subject emphasizes the proper treatment of uncertainty to make the best decisions, and uses practical examples, such as time to failure of cranes, discharge and flow of rivers, hydraulic pump reliability, predicting defects in manufacturing, nuclear reactor reliability, and traffic flow patterns. Topics include Taylor series expansion; graphical analysis of data; the probabilistic characteristics of functions of random variables; parameter estimation, hypothesis testing, confidence-interval estimation, sample-size determination; Monte Carlo simulation; and Bayesian methods in engineering.
