Lecture Notes: Tropical Medicine is a comprehensive introduction to tropical medicine. The new edition is in full colour throughout with over 40 colour images integrated with the text. There is a new chapter on syndromes of undernutrition (in both children and adults), and the section on non-communicable diseases has been extended to include mental health problems in the tropics. The core information is presented in a clear and concise way, with extensive use of diagrams, algorithms, tables and boxes. All chapters have been updated to reflect current best practice and the annotated bibliographies and lists of web-based resources have been extended. The chapters on HIV, tuberculosis and malaria have undergone particularly extensive revision, reflecting rapid changes in these areas since the last edition. Lecture Notes: Tropical Medicine is particularly aimed at postgraduate doctors attending tropical medicine courses, as well as medical students taking a tropical medicine elective period. It will also be useful to a wide range of other health professionals involved with medicine in the tropics, or imported tropical disease.

This book is a formal presentation of lectures given at the 1987 Summer School on Turbulence, held at the National Center for Atmospheric Research under the auspices of the Geophysical Turbulence Program. The lectures present in detail certain of the more challenging and interesting current turbulence research problems in engineering, meteorology, plasma physics, and mathematics. The lecturers-Uriel Frisch (Mathematics), Douglas Lilly (Meteorology), David Montgomery (Plasma Physics), and Hendrik Tennekes (Engineering) ? are distinguished for both their research contributions and their abilities to communicate these to students with enthusiasm. This book is distinguished by its simultaneous focus on the fundamentals of turbulent flows (in neutral and ionized fluids) and on a presentation of current research tools and topics in these fields.

The Lecture Notes series is ideal for medical students, junior doctors and other allied health professionals. Lecture Notes: Haematology concentrates on providing the required core subject knowledge and has been extensively revised and updated to reflect the considerable advances in the understanding of the molecular biology and pathogenesis of haematological disorders, while continuing the tradition of successfully integrating the physiological, pathological and clinical aspects of haematology. Each chapter begins with a list of learning objectives that identifies the key elements that students need to know, whilst also taking learning to the next level. This new edition includes brief sections on the approaches to investigation and treatment of haematological problems, the underlying mechanisms and relationships concerning lymphomas and other neoplastic diseases of the bone marrow, and the rapidly changing area of bone marrow transplantation. Illustrated in full colour throughout, with new illustrations and photographs of important normal and abnormal blood cells, this eighth edition is a comprehensive guide to haematology and an essential aid for anyone who wants a concise introduction to the subject.

This book emphasises those features in solution chemistry which are difficult to measure, but essential for the understanding of both the qualitative and the quantitative aspects. Attention is paid to the mutual influences between solute and solvent, even at extremely small concentrations of the former. The described extension of the molecular concept leads to a broad view ? not by a change in paradigm ? but by finding the rules for the organizations both at the molecular and the supermolecular level of liquid and solid solutions.

Lecture Notes on Composite Materials

Lecture Notes on Composite Materials

Page: 237

View: 814

Composite materials are heterogeneous by nature, and are intended to be, since only the combination of different constituent materials can give them the desired combination of low weight, stiffness and strength. At present, the knowledge has advanced to a level that materials can be tailored to exhibit certain, required properties. At the same time, the fact that these materials are composed of various, sometimes very different constituents, make their mechanical behaviour complex. This observation holds with respect to the deformation behaviour, but especially with respect to the failure behaviour, where complicated and unconventional failure modes have been observed. It is a challenge to develop predictive methods that can capture this complex mechanical behaviour, either using analytical tools, or using numerical me- ods, the ?nite element method being the most widespread among the latter. In this respect, developments have gone fast over the past decade. Indeed, we have seen a paradigm shift in computational approaches to (composite) ma- rial behaviour. Where only a decade ago it was still customary to carry out analyses of deformation and failure at a macroscopic level of observation only – one may call this a phenomenological approach – nowadays this approach is being progressively replaced by multiscale methods. In such methods it is r- ognized a priori that the overall behaviour is highly dependent on local details and ?aws.

Lecture Notes on Principles of Plasma Processing

Lecture Notes on Principles of Plasma Processing

Author: Francis F. Chen

Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media

ISBN: 0306474972

Page: 208

View: 784

Plasma processing of semiconductors is an interdisciplinary field requiring knowledge of both plasma physics and chemical engineering. The two authors are experts in each of these fields, and their collaboration results in the merging of these fields with a common terminology. Basic plasma concepts are introduced painlessly to those who have studied undergraduate electromagnetics but have had no previous exposure to plasmas. Unnecessarily detailed derivations are omitted; yet the reader is led to understand in some depth those concepts, such as the structure of sheaths, that are important in the design and operation of plasma processing reactors. Physicists not accustomed to low-temperature plasmas are introduced to chemical kinetics, surface science, and molecular spectroscopy. The material has been condensed to suit a nine-week graduate course, but it is sufficient to bring the reader up to date on current problems such as copper interconnects, low-k and high-k dielectrics, and oxide damage. Students will appreciate the web-style layout with ample color illustrations opposite the text, with ample room for notes. This short book is ideal for new workers in the semiconductor industry who want to be brought up to speed with minimum effort. It is also suitable for Chemical Engineering students studying plasma processing of materials; Engineers, physicists, and technicians entering the semiconductor industry who want a quick overview of the use of plasmas in the industry.

This book is an introduction to the subject of mean curvature flow of hypersurfaces with special emphasis on the analysis of singularities. This flow occurs in the description of the evolution of numerous physical models where the energy is given by the area of the interfaces. These notes provide a detailed discussion of the classical parametric approach (mainly developed by R. Hamilton and G. Huisken). They are well suited for a course at PhD/PostDoc level and can be useful for any researcher interested in a solid introduction to the technical issues of the field. All the proofs are carefully written, often simplified, and contain several comments. Moreover, the author revisited and organized a large amount of material scattered around in literature in the last 25 years.

The text is presented in chunks of approximately 10 True/False questions on specific concepts in research methodology and statistics. This is followed by clear explanations, from first principles, that assume no prior knowledge. This book is for the paper critique section of the MRCPsych 2 examination but clinical tutors, organisers of journal clubs and clinicians interested in research will find the book helpful. It is particularly invaluable for clinicians interested in evidence based medicine. This book is intended to be used as an aide memoir, carried in the pocket and referred to as often as necessary. It enables self-assessment to be carried out in the hope that any gaps in knowledge will be identified. Much of this book focuses on practical application of statistical and research methodology concepts into critical paper reading. The reader is encouraged to attempt the questions before the reading the suggested answers.
