This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Engineering Multi-Agent Systems, EMAS 2014, held in Paris, France, in May 2014. The 22 full papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 41 submissions. The focus of the papers is on following topics: intelligent agents, multi-agent systems, software design engineering, model-driven software engineering, reasoning about belief and knowledge, cooperation and coordination, constraint and logic programming, software verification, design patterns.
In recent years, much progress has been made in the understanding of interface dynamics of various systems: hydrodynamics, crystal growth, chemical reactions, and combustion. Dynamics of Curved Fronts is an important contribution to this field and will be an indispensable reference work for researchers and graduate students in physics, applied mathematics, and chemical engineering. The book consist of a 100 page introduction by the editor and 33 seminal articles from various disciplines.
This comprehensive, detailed reference provides readers with both a working knowledge of Mathematica in general and a detailed knowledge of the key aspects needed to create the fastest, shortest, and most elegant implementations possible. It gives users a deeper understanding of Mathematica by instructive implementations, explanations, and examples from a range of disciplines at varying levels of complexity. The three volumes - Programming, Graphics, and Mathematics - each with a CD, total 3,000 pages and contain more than 15,000 Mathematica inputs, over 1,500 graphics, 4,000+ references, and more than 500 exercises. This second volume covers 2 and 3D graphics, providing a detailed treatment of creating images from graphic primitives such as points, lines, and polygons. It also shows how to graphically display functions that are given either analytically or in discrete form and a number of images from the Mathamatica graphics gallery. The use of Mathematicas graphics capabilities provides a very efficient and instructive way to learn how to deal with the structures arising in solving complicated problems.

This study is aimed to identify the major issues Asian developing countries must address to enhance export competitiveness through trade facilitation. The paper is composed of four parts. Part 1 examines the definition and scope of trade facilitation; part 2 presents the concept of export competitiveness and relevant indices; part 3 discusses the role of trade facilitation in enhancing export competitiveness; and part 4 identifies the major issues that developing countries in Asia should address in terms of trade facilitation to enhance export competitiveness and provides some policy recommendations.
