Self-Repair Networks: A Mechanism Design (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.



book describes the struggle to introduce a mechanism that enables

next-generation information systems to maintain themselves. Our generation

observed the birth and growth of information systems, and the Internet in

particular. Surprisingly information systems are quite different from

conventional (energy, material-intensive) artificial systems, and rather

resemble biological systems (information-intensive systems). Many artificial

systems are designed based on (Newtonian) physics assuming that every element

obeys simple and static rules; however, the experience of the Internet suggests

a different way of designing where growth cannot be controlled but

self-organized with autonomous and selfish agents. This book suggests using game

theory, a mechanism design in

particular, for designing next-generation information systems which will be

self-organized by collective acts with autonomous components. The challenge of mapping a probability to time appears repeatedly in many forms throughout

this book.

The book contains interdisciplinary

research encompassing game theory, complex systems, reliability theory and

particle physics. All devoted to its central theme: what happens if

systems self-repair themselves?
