Avi Loeb, chair of the Harvard Astronomy Department and director of the Institute for Theory and Computation, has published a new eBook: 'From the First Star to Milkomeda.'
The discipline of fracture mechanics is required only because of the limitations of continuum mechanics. What if a theory for the deformation of solids included both continuous and cracking behavior by design? The new book 'Introduction to Practical Peridynamics' by Walter Gerstle and published by World Scientific develops a computational approach to the simulation of solids that is much more efficacious than current finite element approaches.
'Methods in Yeast Genetics and Genomics: A Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Course Manual, 2015 Edition' covers the full repertoire of genetic approaches needed to dissect complex biological problems in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Over the past two decades, dramatic breakthroughs have occurred in the treatment of the inflammatory autoimmune diseases. In this volume, the recent progress, current status, and future development of therapy research for this large group of diseases are discussed by experts from different fields of medicine, including clinical immunology, dermatology, gastroenterology, neurology, pulmonology and rheumatology.
Sandia National Laboratories announces a new book, titled 'Laboratory Biorisk Management.' It's the first full-length manuscript detailing the implementation of biorisk management principles to improve the safety and security of biosciences labs.
Pope Francis recently made an impassioned plea for a 'cultural revolution' to combat climate change, calling for collective action and 'a conversation which includes everyone.' Thus far, the climate conversation has often neglected the contributions of one key group: social scientists. According to the new book 'Climate Change and Society: Sociological Perspectives,' engaging the social -- and not just natural -- sciences is essential for effecting large-scale change.
World Scientific's newly published book 'A Non-Hausdorff Completion: The Abelian Category of C-complete Left Modules over a Topological Ring,' introduces an entirely new invariant in commutative (and non-commutative) algebra and in homological algebra, and opens up a whole new area for study, with also probable applications to algebraic geometry and algebraic topology -- including p-adic cohomology in algebraic geometry.
Editors Nancy J. Dudney, William C. West, and Jagjit Nanda have brought together a highly diverse and accomplished group of expert theorists and experimentalists in the field of solid-state batteries. These 51 authors across a wide range of disciplines contributed 22 chapters encompassing three main aspects of the field: Enabling Technologies and Fundamental of Solid State Systems, Novel Solid Electrolyte Systems and Interfaces, and Devices and Three Dimensional Architectures.
Edited by Riley E. Dunlap and Robert J. Brulle, the forthcoming book, 'Climate Change and Society: Sociological Perspectives,' breaks new theoretical and empirical ground by presenting climate change as a thoroughly social phenomenon, embedded in behaviors, institutions, and cultural practices.
Dr. Jane O'Connell, Australia's first endorsed nurse practitioner specializing in emergency care, is leading the way in re-defining the role specialty nurse practitioners play in the health system. She has published the first set of clinical practice standards for emergency nurse practitioners.
