The nature of research : inquiry in academic contexts
Brew, Angela, 1943-
London ; Routledge/Falmer, 2001
What is research? -- Research and scholarship -- Following rules -- Knowledge -- Problems and questions -- New knowing -- Research as a commodity -- Research and learning -- Research and teaching -- Research as discourse -- Research and the future.

"Academic research is in crisis. Governments have taken over the research agenda. Academics are having to 'publish or perish', often before work is ready. Professionalism may be sacrificed in the pursuit of research grants and publications. Research, it seems, has lost its authority to define for society what knowledge is and how to get it. And at the same time, critical questioning of research agendas is considered taboo." "This book questions those taboos of academic research, and argues that research priorities need to be reordered to address the concerns of today's society. Angela Brew suggests that the academy can and must reclaim the research agenda by developing new forms of research, which will provide a new justification for its existence."

Fractional Order Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization : Applications and Evaluation of an Evolutionary Algorithm
Couceiro, Micael, author
Cham : Springer, [2016]
"This book examines the bottom-up applicability of swarm intelligence to solving multiple problems, such as curve fitting, image segmentation, and swarm robotics. It compares the capabilities of some of the better-known bio-inspired optimization approaches, especially Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO), Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization (DPSO) and the recently proposed Fractional Order Darwinian Particle Swarm Optimization (FODPSO), and comprehensively discusses their advantages and disadvantages. Further, it demonstrates the superiority and key advantages of using the FODPSO algorithm, such as its ability to provide an improved convergence towards a solution, while avoiding sub-optimality. This book offers a valuable resource for researchers in the fields of robotics, sports science, pattern recognition and machine learning, as well as for students of electrical engineering and computer science."--About this book.
