Yet another book that my colleague suggested me to read. I also discussed it with another colleague who told me the same: this is a book that anyone in the oil and gas field should read. And what about people not in this industry?

Book review: Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering

I worked for a long time for the seismic department of my company, and switched to the reservoir department only last year. The problems that are tackled are quite different, and the way they are solved as well. So nothing to do with the book I reviewed a long time ago. So after 2 trainings in reservoir simulation, I also read this book that a colleague of mine labeled as the reference book.

Book review: Intelligent Systems in Oil Field Development under Uncertainty

How to know whether or not to produce an oil field, and how to know how? The oil industry is used to make a lot of simulations to satisfy the SEC rules, and to know how much oil they can drill today and in the future. This book goes further than just the usual how much from a field under specific condition, by adding the development plan as well as the oil price in the equation.

There are a lot of books on software project management best practices. But usually, they are not guides to work with people. And it is people who make projects, not money or computers.

Book review: A Brief Introduction to Continuous Evolutionary Optimization

1 Star2 Stars3 Stars4 Stars5 Stars (No Ratings Yet)
Loading...Loading...

When I developed my first tool based on genetic algorithms, it was to replace local optimization algorithm (“Simulated Annealing”, as advertised by Numerical Recipes) as a global optimization algorithm. Now a couple of years later, I found a small book on GE that seemed on topic with what I had to implement (I relied at the time on another book that I never reviewed ; perhaps another time). Is it a good brief introduction as the book says?

I’m happy to announce the release of a mono fixed delay line on the Audio Toolkit. It is available on Windows and OS X (min. 10.8) in different formats. The three knobs adjust the direct signal (blend), the delayed signal (feedforward) as well as the feedback signal from the delay line injected in the input. The delay can be set from 0 ms to 1 s by steps of 0.1 ms.

When I worked on the common reflection surface stack, one of our biggest issues was selecting the proper optimization algorithms. There are so many for global problems! The book tries to browse through several classical algorithms.
