Description - Bio-Inspired Computing and Networking by Yang Xiao

Seeking new methods to satisfy increasing communication demands, researchers continue to find inspiration from the complex systems found in nature. From ant-inspired allocation to a swarm algorithm derived from honeybees, Bio-Inspired Computing and Networking explains how the study of biological systems can significantly improve computing, networking, and robotics. Containing contributions from leading researchers from around the world, the book investigates the fundamental aspects and applications of bio-inspired computing and networking.
Presenting the latest advances in bio-inspired communication, computing, networking, clustering, optimization, and robotics, the book considers state-of-the-art approaches, novel technologies, and experimental studies, including bio-inspired: Optimization of dynamic NP-hard problems Top-down controller design for distributing a robot swarm among multiple tasks Self-organizing data and signals cellular systems Dynamic spectrum access in cognitive radio networks QoS-aware architecture for scalable, adaptive, and survivable network systems Locomotion control of the Hexapod Robot Gregor III The book explores bio-inspired topology control and reconfiguration methods, as well as bio-inspired localization, synchronization, and mobility approaches. Providing wide-ranging coverage that includes past approaches, current challenges, and emerging concepts such as the evolution and self-healing of network architectures and protocols, this comprehensive reference provides you with the well-rounded understanding you need to continue the advancement of the development, design, and implementation of bio-inspired computing and networking.

Author Biography - Yang Xiao

Dr. Yang Xiao worked in the industry as a medium access control (MAC) architect and was involved in the IEEE 802.11 standard enhancement work before joining the Department of Computer Science at the University of Memphis in 2002. He is currently with the Department of Computer Science (with tenure) at the University of Alabama. Dr. Xiao was a voting member of the IEEE 802.11 Working Group from 2001 to 2004. He is also a senior member of the IEEE. Dr. Xiao serves as a panelist for the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI)'s Telecommunications Expert Committee, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS). He also serves as a referee/reviewer for many national and international funding agencies. His research interests include security, communications/networks, robotics, and telemedicine. He has published more than 160 refereed journal papers and over 200 refereed conference papers and book chapters related to these areas. His research has been supported by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), U.S. Army Research the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI), Fleet Industrial Supply Center--San Diego (FISCSD), FIATECH, and the University of Alabama's Research Grants Committee. He currently serves as editor-in-chief for the International Journal of Security and Networks (IJSN) and the International Journal of Sensor Networks (IJSNet). He was also the founding editor-in-chief for the International Journal of Telemedicine and Applications (IJTA) (2007--2009).
