Foreword

With the rapid development of research on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in worldwide scope, the relevant research on ITS technology applying to railway transportation began in about 2000; subsequently the Railway Intelligent Transportation System (RITS) construction became the focus of railway transportation improvement. Much remarkable progress, such as the ERTMS system in Europe and the CyberRail system in Japan etc., has been obtained in recent 5 years. The research on RITS in China is on going. RITS related framework, standard system and the development strategy have been initially formed up to now.

The book of “The Theory and Method of Design and Optimization for Railway Intelligent Transportation Systems (RITS)” is devoted to scholarly research on China’s RITS development courses, system framework, optimization design, key technologies and current situation etc. RITS utilizes synergistic technologies and system concepts to achieve high efficiency, high safety and high-quality service for railway transportation. It encompasses the full scope of information technologies used in railway transportation, including control, computation intelligent and communication, as well as the algorithms. RITS optimization design mainly resolves the problems of function optimization organization, sub-system partition and function optimization setting of the sub-system. These optimization design theories and methods are applied in practical system, such as Chinese Qinghai-Tabit railway comprehensive monitoring system etc.

Authors of the book have many years’ research and practical experience in RITS fields, and complete Chinese RITS framework and development strategy establishment. They have exerted their utmost effort in the book and have elaborated their work. I believe this academic monograph of RITS is indeed beneficial to readers of graduates and researchers in related fields of university or institute, as well as related people in railway transportation fields in their research and work.

Preface

Kidney transplantation is worldwide considered the best replacement therapy in patients with end-stage renal disease. However, although impressive improvements in surgical techniques and in the management of immunosuppression, long-term results have not significantly changed over the last decades.

The purpose of this book is not to be a comprehensive review on kidney transplantation, but it would overview the recent acquisitions in the field of kidney transplantation, by offering to clinicians the future directions and the possible fields of research to improve the long term outcome.

The book is divided into 27 chapters. The first part of the book is devoted to the basic principles of immunity and organ transplantation and the clinical evaluation of potential recipient. Moreover, in this section are discussed the most recent strategies to increase the donor pool trying to offer a kidney transplantation to a growing number of patients. The second part of the book is devoted to the immunosuppression. In these two chapters, the authors present an overview on the immunosuppressive management of kidney transplant recipients, with particular emphasis on the minimization of immunosuppression. The third part of the book is devoted to the complications of immunosuppression and to the psychological aspects of transplantation. This section is particularly detailed, and offers a complete point of view on the consequences and benefits of kidney transplantation. Last section is devoted to the future. The clinical tolerance and xenotransplantation are not still the present, but the authors illustrate the fields of application of these fundamental aspects of organ transplantation.

The authors and editors have tried to select an appropriate mix of citations, but it has not been possible to cite all the relevant articles. Apologies are due to those authors whose works we have failed to cite.

Our goal was to provide the most recent acquisitions in a practical manner. We hope that we have succeeded.

Special thanks to all the authors for their excellent and enthusiastic collaboration and special thanks to our patients to whom are dedicated all our efforts.
