This book – specifically developed as a novel textbook on elementary classical mechanics – shows how analytical and numerical methods can be seamlessly integrated to solve physics problems. This approach allows students to solve more advanced and applied problems at an earlier stage and equips them to deal with real-world examples...

This textbook provides semester-length coverage of computer architecture and design, providing a strong foundation for students to understand modern computer system architecture and to apply these insights and principles to future computer designs.

It is based on the author’s decades of industrial experience...

This edited volume on the latest advances in data science covers a wide range of topics in the context of data analysis and classification. In particular, it includes contributions on classification methods for high-dimensional data, clustering methods, multivariate statistical methods, and various applications. The book gathers a selection...

Focusing on an approach of solving rigorous problems and learning how to prove, this volume is concentrated on two specific content themes, elementary number theory and algebraic polynomials. The benefit to readers who are moving from calculus to more abstract mathematics is to acquire the ability to understand proofs through...

This book is a snapshot of current research in multiscale modeling, computations and applications. It covers fundamental mathematical theory, numerical algorithms as well as practical computational advice for analysing single and multiphysics models containing a variety of scales in time and space. Complex fluids, porous media flow and...

“Hypernumbers and Extrafunctions” presents a rigorous mathematical approach to operate with infinite values. First, concepts of real and complex numbers are expanded to include a new universe of numbers called hypernumbers which includes infinite quantities. This brief extends classical calculus based on real functions by...

This brilliantly illustrated manual on neck dissection is a roadmap for advanced surgeons and beginners alike. It guides the reader through the cervical structures with practical step-by-step exercises. The illustrations provide an overview of all relevant surgical anatomy important for the identification and treatment of oncologic patients....

Ausgehend von neuesten internationalen Forschungs- und Entwicklungsarbeiten wird in dem Band eine Übersicht über die Realisierungsmöglichkeiten zukünftiger Antriebskonzepte präsentiert: von batteriebetriebenen Elektromotoren und Hybridsystemen über Brennstoffzellen bis hin zu alternativen Energieträgern wie...

Many engineering, operations, and scientific applications include a mixture of discrete and continuous decision variables and nonlinear relationships involving the decision variables that have a pronounced effect on the set of feasible and optimal solutions. Mixed-integer nonlinear programming (MINLP) problems combine the numerical...

Product and service innovations are the result of mutually interacting creative and coordination tasks within a system that has to balance technical decisions, marketplace taste, personnel management, and stakeholder commitment. The constituent elements of such systems are often scattered across multiple firms and across the globe and...

The book covers the totality of bilirubin (and heme from which bilirubin is derived biogenetically) the structural relationship of bilirubin to its solution properties and metabolism and to phototherapy for the jaundiced newborn - a common medical procedure used nowadays for lowering serum bilirubin, which is neurotoxic.

This up-to-date, self-contained review of the theory of gravitational interactions presents a traditional introduction, then discuss analogies and differences between a geometric theory of gravity and the gauge theories of the other fundamental interactions.
