Summary This book considers the challenge of building resilient complex systems and examines resilient adaptive systems from the perspectives of mobile systems, infrastructure systems, enterprise systems, and protecting critical infrastructure. It details various approaches for building adaptive, dynamic, and resilient systems, including: agile, grid, and autonomic computing; multi-agent-based and biologically inspired approaches; and self-organizing systems. Reporting on recent developments in adaptive systems, it begins with a survey of application fields and explains the requirements of such fields in terms of adaptation and resilience. It also provides some abstract relationship graphs that illustrate the key attributes of distributed systems to supply a better understanding of these factors and their dependencies. The book includes many stories of successful applications that illustrate a diversified range of cutting-edge approaches. It concludes by covering related topics and techniques that can help to boost adaptation and resilience in systems. -- Edited summary from book
