Applications of Synchrotron Radiation: Micro Beams in Cell Micro Biology and Medicine (Biological and Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering)
Springer | ISBN3540464247 | 2007-01| PDF | 212pages | 13.75 Mb

This book demonstrates the applications of synchrotron radiation in certain aspects of cell microbiology, specifically non-destructive elemental analyses, chemical-state analyses and imaging (distribution) of the elements within a cell. The basics for understanding and applications of synchrotron radiation are also described to make the contents easier to be understood for a wide group of researchers in medical and biological sciences who might not be familiar with the physics of synchrotron radiation. The two main techniques that are discussed in this book are the x-ray fluorescence spectroscopy (XRF) and the x-ray fine structure analysis (XAFS). Application of these techniques in investigations of several important scientific fields, such as neurodegeneration and other diseases related to cell malfunctioning, are demonstrated in this book.

The Next 4 Billion: Market Size and Business Strategy at the Base of the Pyramid
WRIIFC | March 19, 2022 | ISBN-10: 1569736251 | 160 pages | PDF | 10 mb

Four billion low-income consumers, a majority of the world s population, constitute the base of the economic pyramid (BOP). New empirical measures of their aggregate purchasing power and behavior as consumers suggest significant opportunities for market-based approaches to better meet their needs, increase their productivity and incomes, and empower their entry into the formal economy. This volume, based on unique access to the household income and consumption surveys of developing and transition countries, offers a new and compelling perspective on low-income communities worldwide. Drawing on income data from 110 countries and standardized expenditure data from 36 countries across the globe, The Next 4 Billion is an important first look at the market opportunity represented by four billion individuals who make up the BOP. The analysis for the first time provides a quantitative assessment and characterization of BOP markets, at several levels of analysis.

The Cube-A Window to Convex and Discrete Geometry (Cambridge Tracts in Mathematics)
Cambridge University Press | February 20, 2022 | ISBN-10: 0521855357 | 184 pages | PDF | 7 MB

Eight topics about the unit cubes are introduced within this textbook: cross sections, projections, inscribed simplices, triangulations, 0/1 polytopes, Minkowski's conjecture, Furtwangler's conjecture, and Keller's conjecture. In particular Chuanming Zong demonstrates how deep analysis like log concave measure and the Brascamp-Lieb inequality can deal with the cross section problem, how Hyperbolic Geometry helps with the triangulation problem, how group rings can deal with Minkowski's conjecture and Furtwangler's conjecture, and how Graph Theory handles Keller's conjecture.

Discrete Dynamical Systems
Springer | December 28, 2021 | ISBN-10: 3540367756 | 153 pages | PDF | 1.14 mb

This book provides an introduction to discrete dynamical systems - a framework of analysis that is commonly used in the fields of biology, demography, ecology, economics, engineering, finance, and physics. The book characterizes the fundamental factors that govern the quantitative and qualitative trajectories of a variety of deterministic, discrete dynamical systems, providing solution methods for systems that can be solved analytically and methods of qualitative analysis for those systems that do not permit or necessitate an explicit solution.

Variational Problems in Materials Science (Progress in Nonlinear Differential Equations and Their Applications)
Birkhäuser Basel | April 28, 2022 | ISBN-10: 3764375647 | 159 pages | PDF | 1.64 mb

The study of variational problems in materials science has a long history, and it has contributed a lot in shaping our understanding on how materials work and perform. There is, however, a recent renewed interest in this subject as a consequence of the fruitful interaction between mathematical analysis and the modelling of new, technologically advanced materials. On one hand, a sizable group of analysts has found in materials science a valuable source of inspiration for new variational theories and interesting problems. On the other hand, workers in the fields of theoretical, applied, and computational mechanics are increasingly using innovative variational techniques. The workshop intended to review some of the recent advances stemming from the successful interaction between the two communities, and to identify promising areas for further cooperation.
Modal Array Signal Processing: Principles and Applications of Acoustic Wavefield Decomposition

Modal Array Signal Processing: Principles and Applications of Acoustic Wavefield Decomposition
Springer | March 5, 2022 | ISBN-10: 3540408932 | 253 pages | PDF | 3.69 mb

Many applications of acoustic signal processing, such as teleconferencing and surveillance systems, require an estimate of several parameters present in the observed acoustic wavefield. The most important parameters are the number as well as the location of active acoustic sources. This book deals with the problem of detecting and localizing multiple simultaneously active wideband acoustic sources by applying the notion of wavefield decomposition using circular and spherical microphone arrays. The decomposed wavefield representation is used to serve as a basis for so-called modal array signal processing algorithms, which have the significant advantage over classical array signal processing algorithms that they inherently support multiple wideband acoustic sources. A rigorous derivation of modal array signal processing algorithms for unambiguous source detection and localization as well as performance evaluations by means of measurements using an actual real-time capable implementation are discussed.

"This monograph is dedicated to the theory of singularities, a subject with a central role in modern mathematics. … This very well written book has a unified point of view based on the theory of analytic spaces, which allows a coherent presentation of both of its main themes: the theory of singularities and deformations of singularities. … The book includes many examples and exercises … . This monograph can serve as a source for several special courses in singularity theory and local analytic geometry."

Springer; 1 edition (December 6, 2021) | ISBN:3540421394 | 240 pages | Djvu | 3,4 Mb

Over the past decade, many major advances have been made in the field of graph colouring via the probabilistic method. This monograph provides an accessible and unified treatment of these results, using tools such as the Lovasz Local Lemma and Talagrand's concentration inequality.The topics covered include: Kahn's proofs that the Goldberg-Seymour and List Colouring Conjectures hold asymptotically; a proof that for some absolute constant C, every graph of maximum degree Delta has a Delta+C total colouring; Johansson's proof that a triangle free graph has a O(Delta over log Delta) colouring; algorithmic variants of the Local Lemma which permit the efficient construction of many optimal and near-optimal colourings.

Microdosimetric Response of Physical and Biological Systems to Low- and High-LET Radiations: Theory and Applications to Dosimetry
Elsevier Science | ISBN 0444516433 | 2021-08-18 | PDF | 500 pages | 5.64 MB

One of the aims of this book was to focus the attention of specialists to the diversity of the effects of the ionising radiation on biological and physical systems. Special emphasis has been placed on the exquisite complexities/differences introduced by high ionisation density versus low ionisation density irradiation in both biological and physical systems (Scholz Chapter 1, Horowitz Chapter 2, Olko Chapter 3). As well we wanted to point out the need for novel experimental and theoretical approaches required to advance the important fields of micro and nanodosimetry.
