This book discusses the semiotic and ethnographic bases for organizational analysis, including the related fieldwork issues confronting the investigator. It explains the importance of rhetorical-dramaturgic and phenomenological strategies for the study of organizations. The arbitrary and culturally based connections in which organizations abound require an understanding of the particulars of cultural scenes, first observed, later conceptualized through semiotic theory. Organizational Communication includes a series of examples from applied semiotics research in nuclear regulatory policy making, truth telling, regulatory control (by, among others, the police), and risk analysis. These data provide the basis for a critique of the limits of earlier analyses of organizational change, such as those offered by structuralist theories. Dr. Manning concludes with an assessment of the postmodernist ethnographic strategies that have evolved as a response to a larger representational crisis, and of the implications of these strategies for the study of organizational culture.

By 2020, if not before, mobile computing and wireless systems are expected to enter the fifth generation (5G), which promises evolutionary if not revolutionary services. What those advanced services will look like, sound like, and feel like is the theme of the book Advances in Mobile Computing and Communications: Perspectives and Emerging Trends in 5G Networks. The book explores futuristic and compelling ideas in latest developments of communication and networking aspects of 5G. As such, it serves as an excellent guide for advanced developers, communication network scientists, researchers, academicians, and graduate students. The authors address computing models, communication architecture, and protocols based on 3G, LTE, LTE-A, 4G, and beyond. Topics include advances in 4G, radio propagation and channel modeling aspects of 4G networks, limited feedback for 4G, and game theory application for power control and subcarrier allocation in OFDMA cellular networks. Additionally, the book covers millimeter-wave technology for 5G networks, multicellular heterogeneous networks, and energy-efficient mobile wireless network operations for 4G and beyond using HetNets. Finally, the authors delve into opportunistic multiconnect networks with P2P WiFi and cellular providers and video streaming over wireless channels for 4G and beyond.

Complex Systems and Clouds: A Self-Organization and Self-Management Perspective provides insights into the intricate world of self-organizing systems. Large scale distributed computer systems have evolved into very complex systems and are at the point where they need to borrow self-adapting organizing concepts from nature. The book explores complexity in big distributed systems and in the natural processes in physics and chemistry, building a platform for understanding how self-organization in big distributed systems can be achieved. It goes beyond the theoretical description of self-organization to present principles for designing self-organizing systems, and concludes by showing the need for a paradigm shift in the development of large-scale systems from strictly deterministic to non-deterministic and adaptive. Analyzes the effect of self-organization applied to computer clouds Furthers research on principles of self-organization of computing and communication systems inspired by a wealth of self-organizing processes and phenomena in nature and society Presents a unique analysis of the field, with solutions and case studies
