After more than 25 years of research into prediabetes and its progressive disease state, diabetes, Dr. Samuel Dagogo-Jack has written the first comprehensive textbook on prediabetes. Titled “Prediabetes: A Fundamental Text,” the book was published by the American Diabetes Association on July 27, and sold out that day.
The book “The Choice We Face: How Segregation, Race and Power Have Shaped America’s Most Controversial Education Reform Movement” (Beacon Press) was written by University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign education professor Jon Hale.
Exterior calculus is a branch of differential geometry in Mathematics that studies geometry of smooth shapes and spaces respectively using the techniques of differential Calculus, integral calculus, linear and multi linear algebra and with exterior algebra. The field has its origins in the study of spherical geometry as far back as antiquity. In Exterior calculus the concept of differentiations is generalized to asymmetric exterior derivatives and the notions of ordinary integration to differential forms of higher degree of arbitrary dimensions. It therefore generalizes the fundamental theorem of calculus to Stokes' theorem that links the concept of differentiating a function with the concept of integrating a function.
Medicinal and Environmental Chemistry: Experimental Advances and Simulations is a collection of topics that highlight the use of pharmaceutical chemistry to assess the environment or make drug design and chemical testing more environment friendly. The book has been compiled with the aim to provide researchers and medicinal chemists, information about the latest research and the modern techniques used to develop more effective and safer drugs that would not be harmful to the environment. It will also prove beneficial for academicians, students of environmental chemistry, pharmacy, researchers, scientists, computational chemists, pharmacologists, environmentalists, policymakers and postgraduate students.
The book Medicinal and Environmental Chemistry: Experimental Advances and Simulations (Part I) introduces the reader to environmental contaminants and techniques for their quantification and removal. A medicinal perspective for effects and remediation of environmental hazards, and therapeutic strategies available to design new and safer drugs, is addressed with a focus on knowledge about experimental and simulation methods. To further elaborate the importance of environmentally safe chemical practice, the concept of green chemistry has also been covered. It highlights the use of pharmaceutical chemistry to assess the environment or make drug design and chemical testing more environment friendly.
Anti-infective agents are a distinct class of pharmacologically important molecules that have served mankind in different capacities to combat life-threatening pathological conditions. They include antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antituberculosis, antimalarial and urinary anti-infective agents. However, evolutionary changes, adaptations and development of new strains of pathogenic microorganisms that have reduced the therapeutic efficacy of existing drugs, thus, limiting their clinical utility over the years.
Unique in its direct and comprehensive approach, the aim of Trefftz and Fundamental Solution-Based Finite Element Methods is to fill the gap mentioned above and present fundamental knowledge of boundary type FEM and comprehensive treatment of its algorithms. The volume summarizes the current state of practice and presents the most recent research outcomes in the subject. It details the development of each of the ideas and techniques beginning with fundamental principles, and new concepts are illustrated with simple examples wherever possible.
AI introduces new approaches to solve complex problems. It is interesting to note that AI introduces a significant shift in new models and algorithms. Advances in instrument technologies have seen a significant change as far as the tools and techniques are concerned. Subsequently, it has made and is going to make equally powerful influence on the process and manufacturing industry through Industry 4.0.
Human-Computer Interaction and Beyond: Advances Towards Smart and Interconnected Environments is a 2-part book set that presents discoveries, innovative ideas, concepts, practical solutions, and novel applications of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and related disciplines such as Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Data Mining, Computer Vision, and Natural Language Processing for the future of Smart and Interconnected Environments. This 2-part book presents a unique and diverse collection of the global advancements in HCI in the above-mentioned application domains. These two books contain chapters authored by experts in these fields from 15 different countries - Albania, China, Chile, Croatia, India, Indonesia, Iran, Malaysia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Spain, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
The book Psychological Assessment and Interventions for Individuals Linked to Radicalization and Lone Wolf Terrorism aims to cover a gap in understanding psychiatric aspects of radicalization and the lone-wolf phenomenon. Since recently, literature and research have treated the topic under the social assumption that a radicalized individual is only guided by personal, social, and ethnic reasons to commit a radicalized act. We took a different route to analyze the phenomenon, prompted by our clinical experience of mental health professionals working in the territory, being in contact with radicalized people living in our towns and problematic suburbs or prisons. The book is written in a comprehensible language. It is addressed to those working to prevent radicalization and terrorism in their territory and needing a practical tool for understanding and preventing the phenomena.
This book presents an introduction to Matlab for students and professionals working in the field of engineering and other scientific and technical sectors, who have an interest or need to apply Matlab as a tool for undertaking simulations and formulating solutions for the problems concerned.
