Progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science: Volume V
Publisher: Springer | 2009 | PDF | 212 pages | ISBN: 3642038247 | 5.7Mb
The PUILS series delivers up-to-date reviews of progress in Ultrafast Intense Laser Science, a newly emerging interdisciplinary research field spanning atomic and molecular physics, molecular science, and optical science, which has been stimulated by the recent developments in ultrafast laser technologies. Each volume compiles peer-reviewed articles authored by researchers at the forefront of each their own subfields of UILS. Every chapter opens with an overview of the topics to be discussed, so that researchers unfamiliar to the subfield, as well as graduate students, can grasp the importance and attractions of the research topic at hand; these are followed by reports of cutting-edge discoveries. This fifth volume covers a broad range of topics from this interdisciplinary research field, focusing on coherent responses of gaseous and condensed matter to ultrashort intense laser pulses, propagation of intense laser pulses, and laser-plasma interaction and its applications.

Handbook of Nutrition and Ophthalmology
Publisher: Humana Press | 2007 | PDF | 689 pages | ISBN: 1588291960 | 6.9Mb
The Handbook of Nutrition in Ophthalmology is the first general text on nutrition and eye health created for physicians, nutritionists, and researchers. Dr. Richard D. Semba provides important links between the epidemic of obesity and implications it has for eye disease and blindness. The volume addresses three broad themes throughout. The first is that a healthy diet as a major lifelong habit will likely have an impact on reducing a substantial portion of visual impairment and blindness. The second is that a historical perspective is essential to understanding current challenges in ophthalmology, medicine, and public health. The third theme is that many nutrients play a role in oxidative stress and inflammation, and this theory has emerged as a major underlying hypothesis in the pathogenesis of eye diseases. The volume also includes chapters addressing nutritional aspects of preventing eye disease in diabetes mellitus and other optical neuropathies, making the Handbook of Nutrition in Ophthalmology a unique book for a broad spectrum of physicians and practitioners.

The Impact of Environmental Variability on Ecological Systems
Publisher: Springer | 2007 | PDF | 231 pages | ISBN: 1402058500 | 6.4Mb
Fluctuations in the environmental conditions impacting life are ubiquitous. These fluctuations induce changes in the vital processes occurring within individual organisms (such as cellular metabolism) and the ecological processes occurring among individuals (such as competition, mutualism, and predation), ultimately leading to observable fluctuations in the commonly measured characteristics of ecological systems. From a very simple perspective, these processes are all modulators of environmental variability. We might best be able to understand the final form of this modulation – the impact of environmental variability on ecological systems - by building from an understanding of the responses of these life processes in isolation to an understanding of their responses in harmony. The impact of environmental variability on ecological systems is an issue that has been at the forefront of ecological research for many years. Research is taking place on many fronts, including theoretical mathematical based analyses, natural ecosystem observation and experimentation.

Variational Calculus and Optimal Control: Optimization with Elementary Convexity
Publisher: Springer | 1995 | PDF | 484 pages | ISBN: 0387945113 | 6.8Mb
The text provides an introduction to the variational methods used to formulate and solve mathematical and physical problems and gives the reader an insight into the systematic use of elementary (partial) convexity of differentiable functions in Euclidian space. By helping students directly characterize then the solutions for many minimization problems, the text serves as a prelude to the field theory for sufficiency. It lays the groundwork for further explorations in mathematics, physics, mechanical and electrical engineering, and computer science

The Shape of Space, 2th Edition
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | 1994 | PDF | 308 pages | ISBN: 0521450144 | 5.7Mb
This is a revised and updated edition of Graham Nerlich's classic book (1976). It develops a metaphysical account of space that treats it as a real and concrete entity, showing that shape plays a key explanatory role in space and spacetime theories. Arguing that geometrical explanation is very like causal explanation, Professor Nerlich prepares the ground for philosophical argument and investigates how different spaces would affect perception differently. Along the way Professor Nerlich criticizes and rejects conventionalism as a non-realist metaphysics of space, concluding that there is, in fact, no problem of underdetermination for this aspect of spacetime theories, while offering an extensive discussion of the relativity of motion.

Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics
Publisher: Longman | 2010 | PDF | 272 pages | ISBN: 1405899506 | 5.8Mb
Understanding and Teaching Primary Mathematics is a full colour, core textbook for anyone training to teach Maths at primary level. A self-audit is provided at the outset to assess your prior knowledge and highlight areas for your personal development. The book will then help you to develop your mathematical understanding by encouraging you to think mathematically. You will be asked to create an action plan to aid your development and this will also allow you to build up a portfolio of evidence to help you achieve QTS (Qualified Teacher Status). Rather than treating subject knowledge and pedagogy as two separate entities, the book sets maths subject knowledge in context, showing you how to apply it in the classroom, through models and cases of best practice. Misconception boxes appear throughout each chapter to highlight common misconceptions children have in maths and help you to make connections between different areas of mathematics so that your pupils will see mathematics as a whole rather than a series of separate and often disparate ideas. Case studies in each chapter also provide you with an exemplar lesson plan annotated by a new teacher which shows you how to deal with a common misconception. This book will help you to deliver Maths at primary level in a clear and confident manner.
