This book proposes the reversible logic Multiplexer and also demarcates between reversible and irreversible logic Multiplexers. For power reduction in future computing technologies, reversible logic is a very productive approach of logic synthesis. The purpose of this book is to reduce power and area of 2:1 MUX, 4:1 MUX and reversible logic while maintaining the viable performance. The diverse configurations are designed using different topologies of 2:1 MUX and 4:1 MUX such as CMOS based MUX, transmission gate and pass transistor. The editors propose a new application of GDI (Gate-Diffusion Input) circuits to Reversible logic multiplexer with its Garbage input and output. The novel proposed design technique will consume less power than the other conventional gate. Reversible logic circuit has displayed less power dissipation in recent years. Additionally, this GDI cell technique decreases the power of the circuit, delay, Power-Delay Product (PDP) and it also compacts the frequency. The device scaling is partial as the power dissipations is more optimized in terms of delay, frequency jitter, bandwidth power supply, frequency and duty cycle of the signal and also establishes the noise of the circuit. In the reversible logic design, the GDI is efficient in lower delay, low power and low leakage current.
This work tackles the problems of understanding how energy is transmitted and distributed in power-grids as well as in determining how robust this transmission and distribution is when modifications to the grid or power occur. The most important outcome is the derivation of explicit relationships between the structure of the grid, the optimal transmission and distribution of energy, and the grid's collective behavior (namely, the synchronous generation of power). These relationships are extremely relevant for the design of resilient power-grid models. To allow the reader to apply these results to other complex systems, the thesis includes a review of relevant aspects of network theory, spectral theory, and novel analytical calculations to predict the existence and stability of periodic collective behavior in complex networks of phase oscillators, which constitute a paradigmatic model for many complex systems.

The development of electric power systems has been made up of incremental innovations from the end of the 19th century and throughout the 20th century. The creation of deregulated electricity markets has brought about an emerging paradigm in which the relationships between producers, power system operators and consumers have changed enormously compared to the monopolistic case.
The scope of this book is to provide fundamental concepts of the physics and operation of transmission and distribution lines, which is the content of Part 1, followed by the models and tools for the description and simulation of large electrical grids for steady state and transient operation. These advanced tools allow the physics and technology of power systems to be described and the algorithms of Ybus and Zbus matrices to be built for various studies such as short-circuit studies and load flow or transient phenomena analysis.
Part 3 deals with the new organization concepts in the frame of deregulated markets. In this part the restructuring of the power industry is presented where various actors interact together through market places or bilateral contracts. In addition, the operation of the power grids under this deregulated context is detailed and the relationships between power system operators and market actors (energy producers and providers, traders, etc.) is explained with several examples. The ancillary services, congestion management and grid access concepts are also described.
A large number of exercises and problems disseminated throughout the book with solutions at the end enable the reader to check his understanding of the content at any time.

The purpose of the book is to provide an exposition of recently developed adaptive and fault-tolerant control of underactuated nonlinear systems. Underactuated systems are abundant in real life, ranging from landing vehicles to surface ships and underwater vehicles to spacecrafts. For the tracking and stabilization control of underactuated mechanical systems, many methodologies have been proposed. However, a number of important issues deserve further investigation. In response to these issues, four important problems are solved in this book, including control of underactuated nonlinear systems with input saturation, output-feedback control in the presence of parametric uncertainties, fault-tolerant control of underactuated ships with or without actuator redundancy, and adaptive control of multiple underactauted nonlinear systems, including formation control and flocking control of multiple underactuated systems.
