Fundamentals of Satellite Navigation Systems Book Excerpt:

The objective of this book is to provide you the reader a complete systems engineering treatment of GNSS. I am an expert with practical experience in GPS/GNSS design and similar areas that are addressed within the book. I provide a thorough, in-depth treatment of each topic. Within this and the rest of the series, updated information on GPS and GLONASS is presented. In particular, descriptions of new satellites, such as GPS III and GLONASS K2 and their respective signal sets (e.g., GPS III L1C and GLONASS L3OC), are included. In this part I are in-depth technical descriptions of each emerging satellite navigation system: BeiDou, Galileo, QZSS, and NavIC. Dedicated chapters cover each system's constellation configuration, satellites, ground control system and user equipment. Detailed satellite signal characteristics are also provided. Recently, I've heard from many engineers that they learned how GPS receivers work from this title. In this title, the design is included, and treatment of receivers is updated and expanded in several important ways. New material has been added on important receiver components, such as antennas and front-end electronics. The increased complexity of multiconstellation, multifrequency receivers, which are rapidly becoming the norm today, is addressed in detail. Other added features of this title are the clear step-by-step design process and associated trades required to develop a GNSS receiver, depending on the specific receiver application. This subject will be of great value to those readers who need to understand these concepts, either for their own design tasks or to aid their satellite navigation system engineering knowledge. To round out the discussion of receivers, updated treatments of interference, ionospheric scintillation, and multipath are provided along with new material on blockage from foliage, terrain, and man-made structures. Now there has been major developments in GNSS augmentations, including differential GNSS (DGNSS) systems, Precise Point Positioning (PPP) techniques, and the use of external sensors/networks. The numerous deployed or planned satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS) networks are detailed, including WAAS, EGNOS, MSAS, GAGAN, and SDCM, as are groundbased differential systems used for various applications. The use of PPP techniques has greatly increased in recent years, and the treatment in this title has been expanded accordingly. Material addressing integration of GNSS with other sensors has been thoroughly revamped, as has the treatment of network assistance as needed to reflect the evolution from 2G/3G to 4G cellular systems that now rely on multiconstellation GNSS receiver engines. While this title has generally been written for the engineering/scientific community, one of the series is devoted to GNSS markets and applications. Marketing projections (and the challenge thereof) are enumerated and discussion of the major applications is provided. As in the other series, this book is structured such that a reader with a general science background can learn the basics of GNSS. The reader with a stronger engineering/scientific background will be able to delve deeper and benefit from the more in-depth technical material. It is this ramp-up of mathematical/technical complexity along with the treatment of key topics that enables this publication to serve as a student text as well as a reference source.

Fundamentals of Transfer Pricing Book Excerpt:

Transfer pricing continues to be one of the most significant areas of heightened controversy in international taxation for multinational enterprises and tax administrations. Due to its far-reaching consequences, tax professionals and individual tax jurisdictions are required to understand the fundamentals of the topic, which is often caught in a maze of literature. Emerging from the joint research conducted by the WU Transfer Pricing Center at the Institute for Austrian and International Tax Law at WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business), the international tax law firm L&P – Ludovici Piccone & Partners, and the experiences from the annual advanced transfer pricing courses and conferences, this first edition of the book acts as a manual for understanding transfer pricing principles and their practical application. It provides a balanced approach by first detailing the basics of transfer pricing and second proceeding to specific topics that are highly relevant in today's tax environment. For the purpose of easy understanding, the book is presented in two parts: Part I: General Topics I. Introduction to Transfer Pricing II. Accurate Delineation and Recognition of Actual Transactions: Comparability Analysis III. Transfer Pricing Methods (Part I): Traditional Transaction Methods IV. Transfer Pricing Methods (Part II): Transactional Profit Methods V. Administrative Approaches to Avoiding/Minimizing Transfer Pricing Disputes VI. Administrative Approaches to Resolving Transfer Pricing Disputes VII. Transfer Pricing Documentation: Master File, Country File and Country-by-Country Reporting Part II: Specific Topics VIII. Attribution of Profits to Permanent Establishments IX. Transfer Pricing and Intra-group Services X. Transfer Pricing and Intra-group Financial Transactions XI. Transfer Pricing and Intangibles XII. Transfer Pricing, Supply Chain Management and Business Restructurings XIII. Transfer Pricing and Customs Valuation XIV. Transfer Pricing and EU State Aid In analysing the above topics, the work undertaken by the OECD, UN, EU, World Customs Organization, World Bank, International Monetary Fund and other international organizations is considered. Moreover, the book contains several practical examples, judicial precedents and illustrative explanations to complement the understanding. The book will be a catalyst for immense learning of students and young professionals who are at the introductory stage of understanding the nuances of transfer pricing. Further, the book also caters to tax lawyers, in-house tax counsels and academics working in international organizations, the business community and advisory firms as well as government officials interested in understanding transfer pricing.

FUNDAMENTALS OF EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION Book Excerpt:

Introduction Education is a complex process which involves different components such as pupils, teachers, employees, building, money, equipment, rules and regulations etc. All these components have to be managed properly in order to run the entire process smoothly. Educational Administration deals with all these components of education and integrates the different parts into a comprehensive whole for the smooth functioning of educational process. We all know that for any process to run, we need different components, a proper procedure and a machinery to fulfill its specific end in view. Educational administration is a comprehensive effort to integrate different components of education to achieve the aim and objectives of education. It is a dynamic side of education, which generally deals with the educational practices. Educational administration always deals with an educational organization or institution right from school, college, to university or any other seat of higher learning. It also deals with the different aspects of education such as planning, decision making, implementation of educational policies, evaluation, framing and implementing rules and regulations of the institution, finances, and different problems of pupils, teachers, employees and above all, realization of some specific aims of education.
