Provides authoritative guidance on statistical analysis techniques and inferential methods for one-shot device life-testing Estimating the reliability of one-shot devices—electro-expolsive devices, fire extinguishers, automobile airbags, and other units that perform their function only once—poses unique analytical challenges to conventional approaches. Due to how one-shot devices are censored, their precise failure times cannot be obtained from testing. The condition of a one-shot device can only be recorded at a specific inspection time, resulting in a lack of lifetime data collected in life-tests. Accelerated Life Testing of One-shot Devices: Data Collection and Analysis addresses the fundamental issues of statistical modeling based on data collected from accelerated life-tests of one-shot devices. The authors provide inferential methods and procedures for planning accelerated life-tests, and describe advanced statistical techniques to help reliability practitioners overcome estimation problems in the real world. Topics covered include likelihood inference, competing-risks models, one-shot devices with dependent components, model selection, and more. Enabling readers to apply the techniques to their own lifetime data and arrive at the most accurate inference possible, this practical resource: Provides expert guidance on comprehensive data analysis of one-shot devices under accelerated life-tests Discusses how to design experiments for data collection from efficient accelerated life-tests while conforming to budget constraints Helps readers develops optimal designs for constant-stress and step-stress accelerated life-tests, mainstream life-tests commonly used in reliability practice Includes R code in each chapter for readers to use in their own analyses of one-shot device testing data Features numerous case studies and practical examples throughout Highlights important issues, problems, and future research directions in reliability theory and practice Accelerated Life Testing of One-shot Devices: Data Collection and Analysis is essential reading for graduate students, researchers, and engineers working on accelerated life testing data analysis.

TENNIS--One Shot at a Time offers lots of ideas and tips for the recreational tennis player. It is based on the simple idea that tennis should, most of all, be a fun activity, as well as providing challenge and competition. It covers topics like How to keep things simple in tennis How to focus and enhance your consistency Winning for fun, but never at all cost Finding people you enjoy playing and competing with Making tennis a fun game for kids, and how to be a tennis parent Tips for doubles and mixed doubles Full of humorous comments and drawings, there are also many practical tips on how to play a tie-breaker, how to set up a recreational tournament, how to select a racket and string, what to do about tennis elbow, and many more. "There is no more glory in winning your match from your regular tennis buddy than the satisfaction that, today, what you tried to do, worked. The fun was in trying to win, not to defeat your friend. If you go out on the court with the desire to do your best, your share of wins will happen. Best of all, you give yourself and your opponent a good time." Ron Mescall won Junior Titles while growing up in Indiana, and was a Big Ten Champion for Michigan State University. He has been a tennis coach and teacher for 40 years.

Get to grips with building powerful deep learning models using PyTorch and scikit-learn Key FeaturesLearn how you can speed up the deep learning process with one-shot learningUse Python and PyTorch to build state-of-the-art one-shot learning modelsExplore architectures such as Siamese networks, memory-augmented neural networks, model-agnostic meta-learning, and discriminative k-shot learningBook Description One-shot learning has been an active field of research for scientists trying to develop a cognitive machine that mimics human learning. With this book, you'll explore key approaches to one-shot learning, such as metrics-based, model-based, and optimization-based techniques, all with the help of practical examples. Hands-On One-shot Learning with Python will guide you through the exploration and design of deep learning models that can obtain information about an object from one or just a few training samples. The book begins with an overview of deep learning and one-shot learning and then introduces you to the different methods you can use to achieve it, such as deep learning architectures and probabilistic models. Once you've got to grips with the core principles, you'll explore real-world examples and implementations of one-shot learning using PyTorch 1.x on datasets such as Omniglot and MiniImageNet. Finally, you'll explore generative modeling-based methods and discover the key considerations for building systems that exhibit human-level intelligence. By the end of this book, you'll be well-versed with the different one- and few-shot learning methods and be able to use them to build your own deep learning models. What you will learnGet to grips with the fundamental concepts of one- and few-shot learningWork with different deep learning architectures for one-shot learningUnderstand when to use one-shot and transfer learning, respectivelyStudy the Bayesian network approach for one-shot learningImplement one-shot learning approaches based on metrics, models, and optimization in PyTorchDiscover different optimization algorithms that help to improve accuracy even with smaller volumes of dataExplore various one-shot learning architectures based on classification and regressionWho this book is for If you're an AI researcher or a machine learning or deep learning expert looking to explore one-shot learning, this book is for you. It will help you get started with implementing various one-shot techniques to train models faster. Some Python programming experience is necessary to understand the concepts covered in this book.

They are the lone wolves of the battlefield. Tracking the enemy, lying in wait for the target to appear -- then they shoot to kill. Armed with an unerring eye, infinite patience and a mastery of camouflage, combat snipers stalk the enemy with only one goal... In World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Beirut, American snipers honed the art of delivering a single deadly shot from nowhere -- and devastating enemy morale. They met the enemy on his own turf, picking off officers, unwary soldiers, and even other snipers from extraordinary distances of up to 1 ½ miles. Now, these uncommon men tell their stories: of the emotions felt when a man's face came into their crosshairs and they pulled the trigger, of the nerve-wracking hours and days of waiting, motionless, for the enemy, of the primal savagery of a sniper duel. Often trained haphazardly in wartime, and forgotten in times of peace, combat snipers were officially recognized after the Vietnam War, when the Marine Corps became the first military branch to start a full-time sniper school. One Shot-One Kill is their powerful record of desperate trials and proud victories. A MAIN SELECTION OF THE MILITARY BOOK CLUB
