A new book, Decoding CEO-Speak, critiques the public language of a powerful class of people – the Chief Executive Officers of major companies. Interest in the behavior and thinking of CEOs is not confined to their corporation’s direct stakeholders only: the public is increasingly interested in how CEOs stand on current issues and community debate.
The astronomer’s observing chair as both image and object, and the story it tells about a particular kind of science and a particular view of history.
An investigation of the work and workers in fossil preparation labs reveals the often unacknowledged creativity and problem-solving on which scientists rely.
"T-Cell Memory" reviews the arsenal of memory T-cell subtypes in the body and how they function as key components of the adaptive immune system. The contributors examine the heterogeneity and diversity of memory T-cell subtypes, how they are classified and named, and their biological characteristics—their transcriptional and metabolic features, migration patterns, life spans, and surveillance activities. The differentiation of T cells from a naive state, how they establish and maintain a primed memory state, and factors that contribute to their decline are all covered.
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.
