The volume is devoted to images in painting, photography and cinema invented by literature. At the same time it intends to question, through this perspective, the relationship between text and image, between verbal and visual in modern and contemporary literature. The authors involved study the mutual boundaries between literature and arts from the point of view of aesthetics, visual culture and literary theory, trying to build a map of the notional ekphrasis, a description which constitutes the work of art while telling it.

Cellular Network Planning
Author: Marcelo Sampaio de Alencar, Djalma de Melo Carvalho Filho
Publisher: River Publishers
Over the recent years, few books have been published covering all the subjects needed to understand the very fundamental concepts of cell planning. Most books which deal with this topic are destined to very specific audiences, and the vast majority introduce the subject at a very basic, or technical, level, or are destined to an academic audience. Cellular Network Planning begins with an introduction to the subject, covering conventional and contemporary wireless systems. Spectral allocation and the frequency plan are discussed, along with the essential characteristics of wireless systems. The design of mobile cellular systems includes cell planning, traffic and channel problems. The book presents a review of existing models, considering both green field dimensioning and network expansion strategies, and discusses multi-objective optimization and base station deployment based on artificial immune systems. It also discusses a cost-effective base station deployment approach based on artificial immune systems, and introduces the modified MO-AIS algorithm. Technical topics discussed in the book include: Mobile Cellular Network BasicsEvolution of Mobile Cellular SystemThe Mobile Communications ChannelPropagation ModelsCell PlanningGreen Field DimensioningNetwork ExpansionCost-effective Planning Strategies
