Frama-C is a popular open-source toolset for analysis and verification of C programs, largely used for teaching, experimental research, and industrial applications. With the growing complexity and ubiquity of modern software, there is increasing interest in code analysis tools at various levels of formalization to ensure safety and security of software products. Acknowledging the fact that no single technique will ever be able to fit all software verification needs, the Frama-C platform features a wide set of plug-ins that can be used or combined for solving specific verification tasks. This guidebook presents a large panorama of basic usages, research results, and concrete applications of Frama-C since the very first open-source release of the platform in 2008. It covers the ACSL specification language, core verification plug-ins, advanced analyses and their combinations, key ingredients for developing new plug-ins, as well as successful industrial case studies in which Frama-C has helped engineers verify crucial safety or security properties. The C programming language continues to be used in foundational software such as device drivers, networking software, operating systems, and controllers, and such software is of growing importance as computers are used in more and more products and cyber-physical systems. C is an attractive programming language for such systems because it provides low-level access to machine capabilities, explicit storage allocation, and pointer arithmetic. However, these same features make it difficult to use C safely and reliably. Programming safely and reliably in language such as C benefits greatly from tool support, which can record a programmer’s decisions and check that they are carried out consistently and without running into any semantic problems.

The book’s first coaching game uses LEGO, Chocolate, and role cards to explore the roles and interdependencies of Dev, Ops, and Security. Readers will experience Aha! moments, expand their individual roles, develop T-shaped skills, and experiment with changing organizational culture. The simulations depict an end-to-end product delivery process, highlighting bottlenecks in the value delivery flow. Additionally, the book is updated with two new games, "Fear in the Workplace" and "Safety in the Workplace" which provide insights into safety culture, drawing inspiration from the works of Ron Westrum, William Kahn, Amy C. Edmondson, and Dr. David Rock. Through open conversations, participants learn to identify signs of a fear-ridden culture and apply safety-enhancing practices to foster a culture of experimentation and learning. This Second Edition is enhanced with real-life examples and includes the insights from important State of DevOps reports. For programmers or system admins/project managers who are new to DevOps.

Symbolic Regression (SR) is one of the most powerful Machine Learning (ML) techniques that produces transparent models, searching the space of mathematical expressions for a model that represents the relationship between the predictors and the dependent variable without the need of taking assumptions about the model structure. Currently, the most prevalent learning algorithms for SR are based on Genetic Programming (GP), an evolutionary algorithm inspired from the well-known principles of natural selection. This book is an in-depth guide to GP for SR, discussing its advanced techniques, as well as examples of applications in science and engineering. The basic idea of GP is to evolve a population of solution candidates in an iterative, generational manner, by repeated application of selection, crossover, mutation, and replacement, thus allowing the model structure, coefficients, and input variables to be searched simultaneously. Given that explainability and interpretability are key elements for integrating humans into the loop of learning in Artificial Intelligence (AI), increasing the capacity for data scientists to understand internal algorithmic processes and their resultant models has beneficial implications for the learning process as a whole. This book represents a practical guide for industry professionals and students across a range of disciplines, particularly Data Science, engineering, and applied mathematics. Focused on state-of-the-art SR methods and providing ready-to-use recipes, this book is especially appealing to those working with empirical or semi-analytical models in science and engineering.

Artificial intelligence in application: Legal aspects, application potentials and use scenarios

The book shows application potentials of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in various industries and presents application scenarios on how a practical implementation can take place. The starting point is the description of legal aspects, which includes a European regulation for Artificial Intelligence and addresses the question of the permissibility of automated decisions. The description of various application potentials, mostly industry-related, and the presentation of some application scenarios form the focus of the topic volume. Four mobility scenarios, in which cars are privately owned or shared on the one hand and are driven by a driver or move autonomously on the other, are changing the most important business processes in the automotive trade, such as car sales, maintenance, repairs and used car purchases. In all processes, application scenarios for the Artificial Intelligence (AI) subfields computer vision, natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning can be identified. The analysis shows that the current degree of implementation varies widely, from the already widespread predictive maintenance in maintenance, to the first approaches of computer vision for diagnosis in repair and used car purchase, to the still novel use of chatbots in consulting and Machine Learning in recommendation processes. For car dealers, the question arises of specialization, e.g. as a service factory or for the fleet management of a mobility service provider, each of which requires different AI scenarios. The book is based on the question of how Artificial Intelligence can be used in entrepreneurial practice. It offers important information that is just as relevant for practitioners as for students and teachers.

This unique volume covers two fundamental elements of computational methods — numbers and functions. It provides an in-depth discussion of the behaviors of numbers, including both real and complex numbers. The discussion leads to the important closure properties of numbers, ensuring solution consistence and existence, and also possible failure in numerical computations in science and engineering.This text then introduces types of functions that take numbers as independent variables and produce a single number. Approaches for constructing inverse functions are also provided. Frequently used basis functions are introduced, with detailed studies on their properties and behaviors. Techniques are presented for constructing basis functions and their use in function approximation in computational methods. Taking advantage of the fast development of computer hardware and software, our discussions will largely be accompanied by computer codes, so that the concepts, theories, and formulations can be immediately demonstrated using examples with results plotted. We will use primarily Python in the first handful of volumes on more fundamental topics and possibly other suitable languages for more advanced topics. Python codes are used because they are currently, and in the foreseeable time, the most popular and easy-to-use tool. The idea is to break down all these difficult topics into simpler ones and conquere one by one immediately using the codes provided. As Python codes are provided, readers can easily see how the theory is formulated and how the solutions are obtained in terms of formulas, numbers, and graphs. Readers may also deepen their understanding via playing with codes and even further develop his/her own codes for solving other related problems. The book is written in Jupyter Notebook format, so that description of theory, formulation, derivation, and coding can all be done in a unified document.
