Essential Scrum: A Practical Guide to the Most Popular Agile Process

A realistic advisor to the preferred Agile Process

The Single-Source, complete advisor to Scrum for All group contributors, Managers, and Executives

If you must use Scrum to increase leading edge services and products that pride your consumers, crucial Scrum is the full, single-source reference you’ve been trying to find. best Scrum trainer and coach Kenny Rubin illuminates the values, rules, and practices of Scrum, and describes versatile, confirmed methods which may assist you enforce it way more effectively.

Whether you're new to Scrum or years into your use, this booklet will introduce, make clear, and deepen your Scrum wisdom on the group, product, and portfolio degrees. Drawing from Rubin’s event supporting countless numbers of businesses be triumphant with Scrum, this publication presents easy-to-digest descriptions better by means of greater than 2 hundred illustrations in response to a wholly new visible icon language for describing Scrum’s roles, artifacts, and activities.

Essential Scrum will offer each staff member, supervisor, and govt with a standard figuring out of Scrum, a shared vocabulary they could use in employing it, and sensible wisdom for deriving greatest price from it.

Theory and Practice of Formal Methods: Essays Dedicated to Frank de Boer on the Occasion of His 60th Birthday

This Festschrift quantity has been released in honor of Frank de Boer, at the party of his sixtieth birthday.
Frank S. de Boer is a sought after member of the learn neighborhood in formal tools and theoretical machine technological know-how. a quick examine his long ebook checklist unearths a large niche and a flexible modus operandi with: common sense and constraint programming; deductive evidence structures, soundness, and completeness; semantics, compositionality, and whole abstraction; method algebra and decidability; multithreading and actor-based concurrency; agent programming, ontologies, and modal good judgment; real-time platforms, timed automata, and schedulability; company architectures, choreography, and coordination; trying out and runtime tracking; and cloud computing and service-level agreements. For some time, he additionally beloved disasters, particularly in semantics, and expectantly concluded with the failure of mess ups. in truth, Frank has an opportunistic method of learn. instead of seeing hindrances, he reveals possibilities.

Let us now concentrate on fuel cell behaviour and assume that electrolysers will behave more or less symmetrically (which they almost do). Figure 12 shows a ‘typical’ I–V curve for a fuel cell device. The curve is only linear in its central section, indicating that here Ohm’s law is valid, although only in the formulation according to Eq. (34) for voltage differentials DU ¼ DI Ã Ri ð35Þ Both the region close to I = 0 and towards large currents require more explanation, though. Figure 13 shows a ‘Tafel plot’ which is essentially a modified I–V diagram.

A plot of efficiency versus cell voltage shows a linear dependency, as expected (Fig. 14). This indicates that in contrast to the Carnot efficiency (Fig. 6), a fuel cell can potentially reach extremely high efficiencies as long as materials can be employed that produce extremely low overpotentials. In essence even, any fuel cell operating at low current densities will by principle have very high efficiencies. Technically this is meaningless, because the power delivered will be low. But it does go to show the valuable potential dormant in fuel cell technology.

The electrochemical driving force of an electrode process is the overpotential, and the current density is reflecting the resulting reaction rate. Thus, the natural test method should be potentiostatic (constant voltage), but due to historical reasons and Testing of Electrodes, Cells, and Short Stacks 47 the easiness of doing galvanostatic (constant current) tests, almost all reported cell tests have been galvanostatic. The galvanostatic test results may be significantly different from the potentiostatic, because a change in driving force (overpotential) may cause changes in electrode mechanisms during the test.
