The book “Artificial Intelligence and Natural Algorithms” informs the reader about applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and nature-inspired algorithms in different situations. The contents include algorithms that can be used in systems designed for plant science research, load balancing, environmental analysis and healthcare. The goal of the book is to equip the reader - students and data analysts - with the information needed to apply basic AI algorithms to resolve actual problems encountered in a professional environment.
Occupational disease is certainly one of the most important public health problems of the 21st century. Occupational disease still accounts for much preventable illnesses and injuries in the workplace. It is important to incorporate modern knowledge of disease epidemiology and innovative diagnostic methods and treatment with the most recent developments in the management and prevention methods to better control work-related diseases and injuries. The book “Modern Occupational Diseases Diagnosis, Epidemiology, Management and Prevention” provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of selected occupational diseases and injuries. It offers accurate, current information on the history, causes, diagnosis, management, and prevention of occupational diseases.
Solar energy is the most abundant renewable energy that can meet all the energy requirements without getting depleted and harming the environment. A lot of research is going on to harness solar thermal energy for space heating, water distillation, and electricity generation. So, there is a need for a resource that can provide knowledge regarding solar energy and research on solar thermal systems. This will help develop more efficient solar systems that are more compact, reliable, portable, and able to eliminate the dependency on conventional energy sources for meeting the energy requirement for various daily life and industrial purposes.
In volume 1 of the book,” Industrial Applications of Soil Microbes” an attempt has been made here to present the basic and applied aspects of soil microbes with latest information about microbial diversity of soil, their involvement in different processes either directly or indirectly for enhancement of crop yield, maintaining the ecosystem, reducing the pollution, future applications of soil microorganism as Nano particle, Intellectual Property Rights and their management.
Individual politicians and their messages increasingly matter for our interest and trust in politics. Think only of the political figures in your country and how they influence your opinion. But little is known how the personalization of politics works out in European Union politics. Do we find personalization of politics at the EU level and does this influence our opinion of the EU? With a wealth of empirical evidence communication researcher Katjana Gattermann concludes that personalization of EU politics is conditional upon institutional media and temporal contexts and so far has limited consequences for European citizens’ awareness, trust and interest in EU politics.
Cancer which takes millions of lives every year has been cursed for human being for long time. Researchers all around the world are scrambling to find new cancer targets in order to develop effective anticancer therapeutics. The heterocyclic scaffolds and common heterocyclic moieties present in majority of the clinical drugs are foundation of anticancer drug discovery. Their intrinsic adaptability and unique physicochemical properties edged them as true keystones of anticancer drug research. Generally, Medicinal Chemists take heterocyclic moieties as a core part in the expansion of anticancer drug-design projects.
The book entitled “Neurodegenerative Diseases: Multifactorial degenerative processes, Biomarkers and Therapeutic approaches” consists of three parts and fourteen chapters. Part-I is related to Multifactorial degenerative processes in neurodegenerative diseases, containing four chapters. Part-II is focussed on pathophysiology, biomarkers in neurodegenerative diseases. This part consists of six chapters. Part-III of the book covers the therapeutic approaches in neurodegenerative diseases, this part consists of four chapters. This book covers pathogenesis, biomarker, diagnosis and treatment-related information. The goal of this book is to give readers an overview of multiple degenerative mechanisms in neurodegeneration, as well as biomarkers and therapeutic possibilities. The book is aimed to target students, research scholars, and neuro physicians who are interested in the topic and even patients and their families.

New book provides a fresh look on the basic foundation for mechanical, civil, aerospace, chemical and ceramic engineering. This comprehensive book presents material with a three-dimensional approach rather than two-dimensional analysis adopted by the existing books. It explains the fundamentals with many illustrations and anecdotes in simple language and a friendly style.
There are thousands of diseases classed as “rare” because they afflict only a small number of people. These patient groups were long ignored by a pharmaceutical industry that judged them too small to provide a return on the investment needed to develop an effective remedy. Forty years ago, a revolution started that transformed the prospects of patients with rare diseases. This book is in part a history, with eyewitness accounts of advances as they occurred and portraits of the pioneering scientists and physicians, tireless activists, and visionary business leaders who made the revolution happen, and it tells deeply personal stories of patients and parents willing to risk new, untried therapies.
A well-functioning corporate insolvency law that allows economically viable companies to restructure is critical for financial markets, especially in times like the COVID-19 period, which has resulted in widespread financial and economic distress. A new book, authored by a law professor at City University of Hong Kong (CityU), provides an in-depth analysis of four economically significant Asian jurisdictions, Mainland China, Hong Kong, India and Singapore, and offers timely policy recommendations for the design of corporate restructuring laws.
