This revolutionary two-volume work uncovers a wide range of amazing paradigms, algorithms, architectures and implementations of computation far outside the comfort zone of mainstream, conventional, computing sciences.
The dynamic world of the very small is the focus of a new textbook, “Stochastic Thermodynamics: An Introduction”, co-authored by Luca Peliti, professor emeritus of statistical mechanics at the University of Naples Federico II in Italy, and Simone Pigolotti, associate professor and head of the Biological Complexity Unit at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST).
A new book Power, for All: How It Really Works and Why It’s Everyone’s Business offers a timely, democratized vision of power. Everyone can understand how power operates, and research shows that once you understand, you can take action to improve life for yourself and others.
Most "how to learn" books focus only on study techniques. However, knowing these study techniques doesn't guarantee they will be successfully implemented. Based on Professor Kamei's popular undergraduate course at the National University of Singapore, the author shares his unique perspective as an educator and physician to provide a strategic approach to learning that will benefit students of all ages looking to optimize their learning.
Though a lack of iron is a factor limiting algal growth in the oceans, more dissolved iron in the ocean East of Greenland due to the melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet does not lead to more algae there. Off the coast of Antarctica, on the other hand, algae do profit from more dissolved iron in the water as a consequence of melting ice. The cause of this difference is the fact that near Antarctica, organic molecules help keep the iron in solution, while near Greenland, they don’t, NIOZ researcher Indah Ardiningsih discovered.
Education expert Yong Zhao has authored "Learners Without Borders: New Learning Pathways for all Students," a book that argues educational reform efforts have failed and will continue to do so. Instead, American schools and educators should transform education by helping make students owners of their learning in a global sense; and that the pandemic may have provided a great opportunity to do just that.
South Korea's Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) has announced that a recent publication by its faculty members sets out the key research directions and new alternatives towards becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
This unique compendium covers applications of state-of-the-art AI techniques to the key areas of software engineering. This reference text will benefit researchers, academics, professionals, and postgraduate students in AI, machine learning and software engineering.
Cardiac Care and COVID-19: Perspectives in Medical Practice is an accessible reference on diagnoses and treatment modalities for cardiac diseases in general, and emergency cardiac conditions to be more specific, with respect to the current COVID-19 pandemic
The aim of this book was to review central concepts of nanoscale by designing and synthesizing different nanomaterials with variable nanoarchitecture, and developing nanodevices and microdevices for nanophotonics, biophotonics and drug delivery applications. Topics ranging from Fluorescence, Plasmonics, Enhanced Plasmonics (EP) to Metal Enhanced Fluorescence (MEF) from colloidal dispersion to single luminescent nanoplatforms and nano-spectroscopy were discussed.
In The Generalized Relative Gol‘dberg Order and Type: Some Remarks on Functions of Complex Variables, the authors have discussed the generalized comparative growth analysis of entire functions of several complex variables at length. The discussion covers the important branch of complex analysis specially the theory of analytic functions of several variables. The book culminates in an explanation of the sum and product theorems depending on the generalized relative Gol'dberg order (α,β). This monograph is intended for mathematical researchers and enthusiasts who wish to expand their understanding about complex variables of several functions and complex and related aspects of complex analysis.
