ICT-related industries are directing their business targets to home applications. Among these applications, entertainment will differentiate ICT applications in the private and personal market from the of?ce. Comprehensive research and development on ICT - plications for entertainment will be different for the promotion of ICT use in the home and other places for leisure. So far engineering research and development on enterta- ment has never been really established in the academic communities. On the other hand entertainment-related industries such as the video and computer game industries have been growing rapidly in the last 10 years, and today the entertainment computing bu- ness outperforms the turnover of the movie industry.

Description : Sport is assumed by many to promote those character traits generally deemed desirable, such as fair play, sportsmanship, obedience to authority, hard work and a commitment to excellence. As sport is a microcosm of society, the same types of deviant behaviour found in the larger social system can be expected to be found in sport. Society values winners and justifies the win at all costs mentality. Industrialization and capitalism have long legitimized this reality. Whether or not an athlete violates norms of acceptable behaviour will be determined by his or her own self-evaluation of ethic and morals. Written specifically for students of both Sports Science and Physical Education, "e;Sport and Physical Education: The Key Concepts"e; is a reference guide to the disciplines, themes, topics and concerns current in contemporary sport. Entries on such diverse subjects as professionalism, history, exercise physiology and education offer an up-to-date perspective on the changing face of sport science. It is hoped that the present book will be of immensely useful for the students of physical education and sports sciences and other related courses.

Description : Modelling and simulation techniques are of central importance to conducting research in sport and exercise science, informing data collection and helping to analyze patterns of movement and physical performance. Modelling and Simulation in Sport and Exercise is the first book to offer an instructive reference for modelling and simulation methods for researchers and sport and exercise scientists. Based around a series of research cases, describing core theories in applied, practical settings, the book draws on examples of modelling and simulation in ball games, biomechanical analysis, physiological testing and monitoring, predictive analysis and sports engineering and product design. Each research case presents a central problem, discusses different modelling approaches that could be used to deal with the issue, analysis of results and a reflection on the methodology and an exercise for students to put the techniques discussed into practice. This is an important reference for any active researcher or upper-level student in sport and exercise science with an interest in mathematical modelling, computer science or simulation techniques.

Description : Sport technology has to be seen from the holistic, as well as inter- and transdisciplinary point of view. Product development requires close collaboration between engineers, athletes, sports scientists, and business managers. It requires an in-depth understanding of engineering disciplines, life and sport sciences, as well as economics. The Impact of Technology on Sport II has in its core precisely this philosophy and approach. It aims to provide a deeper insight into the current status of sports technology and to present recent developments in this area from the perspective of different disciplines, industrial practice, academia and athletes. This book brings together work from researchers around the world and, in particular from the Asia-Pacific region. Most sport technologies are covered, including equipment and materials in various ball sports (golf, cricket, baseball, soccer, tennis, etc.), water sports, athletics, winter sports, mountaineering, motor sports and martial arts. The different technological areas extend to design; dynamics, vibrations and control; aerodynamics; instrumentation and measurements; modelling, simulation and optimisation; biomechanics and human performance; sports medicine; coaching and sports education.

Description : Predicting Fault-proneness of software modules is essential for cost-effective test planning. Fault-proneness could play a key role in quality control of software. Various studies have shown the importance of software metrics in predicting fault-proneness of the software. "Classic" set of metrics was planned by Chidamber and Kemerer in 1991. Chidamber and Kemerer (CK) metrics suite is the most widely used metrics suite for the purpose of object-oriented software fault-proneness prediction. CK metrics are used for numerous function of study, e.g. defect prediction. CK metrics are the good predictor of fault-proneness of classes.C5.0 algorithm is one of the classification techniques of data mining. It is necessarily selected to partition data set into several smaller subsets in every recursion of creating decision tree. Object-oriented metrics play a very important role to quantify the effect of key factors to determine the fault-proneness. For fault-prediction model CK Metrics: Weighted Methods for Class (WMC), Depth of Inheritance Tree (DIT), Number of Children (NOC), Lack of Cohesion of Methods (LCOM), Response for Class (RFC), and Coupling Between Objects (CBO), are used as a independent variables.

Description : Waterproof and Water Repellent Textiles and Clothing provides systematic coverage of the key types of finishes and high performance materials, from conventional wax and silicone, through controversial, but widely used fluoropolymers and advanced techniques, such as atmospheric plasma deposition and sol-gel technology. The book is an essential resource for all those engaged in garment development, production and finishing, and for academics engaged in research into apparel technology and textile science. Rapid innovation in this field is driving new performance demands in many areas, including the sporting and military sectors. However, another innovation driver is the regulatory framework in the USA, Europe and globally, addressing both health concerns (e.g. with PFOS / PFOA) and environmental impacts (e.g. C8 fluorocarbon finishes). Both of these aspects are fully covered, along with the replacement materials / technologies currently available and under development. In addition, oleophobic and multifunctional coatings are discussed, as are aspects of performance, testing and applications in sportswear, protective clothing, and footwear. Introduces innovative materials and technologies, exploring their current and potential use across different sectors Provides expert guidance on the health and environmental aspects of key waterproof materials and coatings and their associated regulations Demystifies testing processes and design principles
