Building and operating distributed systems is fundamental to large-scale production infrastructure, but doing so in a scalable, reliable, and efficient way requires a lot of trial and error. In this collection of essays and articles, three Site Reliability Engineers from Google explain how the company has successfully navigated these waters over the past decade.
You ll learn how Google continuously deploys and monitors some of the largest software systems in the world, how it s Site Reliability Engineering team learns and improves after outages, and how they balance risk-taking vs reliability with error budgets."
Описание: Engineering rock mechanics is the discipline used to design structures built in rock. These structures encompass building foundations, dams, slopes, shafts, tunnels, caverns, hydroelectric schemes, mines, radioactive waste repositories and geothermal energy projects. This book systematically explains the key principles behind rock engineering.
Описание: Uses a large number of industrially-significant problems to convey an in-depth understanding of modern calculation procedures. Includes numerous topical examples and problems, and both conventional and SI units.
Описание: "Introduction to Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics, 7/e", presents comprehensive coverage of the subject of thermodynamics from a chemical engineering viewpoint. The text provides a thorough exposition of the principles of thermodynamics a details their application to chemical processes. The chapters are written in a clear, logically organized manner, and contain an abundance of realistic problems, examples, and illustrations to help students understand complex concepts. New ideas, terms, and symbols constantly challenge the readers to think and encourage them to apply this fundamental body of knowledge to the solution of practical problems. The comprehensive nature of this book makes it a useful reference both in graduate courses and for professional practice. The seventh edition continues to be an excellent tool for teaching the subject of chemical engineering thermodynamics to undergraduate students.

Описание: Monte Carlo simulation has become an essential tool in the pricing of derivative securities and in risk management. These applications have, in turn, stimulated research into new Monte Carlo methods and renewed interest in some older techniques.This book develops the use of Monte Carlo methods in finance and it also uses simulation as a vehicle for presenting models and ideas from financial engineering. It divides roughly into three parts. The first part develops the fundamentals of Monte Carlo methods, the foundations of derivatives pricing, and the implementation of several of the most important models used in financial engineering. The next part describes techniques for improving simulation accuracy and efficiency. The final third of the book addresses special topics: estimating price sensitivities, valuing American options, and measuring market risk and credit risk in financial portfolios.The most important prerequisite is familiarity with the mathematical tools used to specify and analyze continuous-time models in finance, in particular the key ideas of stochastic calculus. Prior exposure to the basic principles of option pricing is useful but not essential.The book is aimed at graduate students in financial engineering, researchers in Monte Carlo simulation, and practitioners implementing models in industry.Mathematical Reviews, 2004: "... this book is very comprehensive, up-to-date and useful tool for those who are interested in implementing Monte Carlo methods in a financial context."
Описание: Risk and reliability analysis is an area of growing importance in geotechnical engineering, where many variables have to be considered. Statistics, reliability modeling anngineering judgement are employed together to develop risk and decision analyses for civil engineering systems. The resulting engineering models are used to make probabilistic predictions, which are applied to geotechnical problems.
Описание: Introduces an innovative reliability-based method for risk assessment in geotechnical engineering. Building on the Finite Element Mehtod, the Random Finite Element Method presented in this book allows the reader to create a better model for analyzing the properties and possible failure of a slope, mine shaft, foundation, embankment, or surface soil. By better modeling the spatially variable nature of soil and rock in the real world, the method presents a more accurate simulation which leads to safer designs. After introducing the threory the book presents 9 examples of the method in practice, utilizing the included software to demonstrate its use in the evaluation and design stages.
