Characterizing Pedagogical Flow presents conclusions from a multi-disciplinary, multi-national research project blending quantitative and qualitative approaches through a discourse methodology. The work produced portraits of mathematics and science education that were dramatically different for each of the countries involved: France, Japan, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, and the United States. To explain these differences, it is proposed that the... more...

Edited by three pioneers in the field – each with longstanding experience in the biotech industry – and a skilled scientific writer, this is the first book to cover every step in the development and production of immunoglobulin Fc-fusion proteins as therapeutics for human disease: from choosing the right molecular design, to pre-clinical characterization of the purified product, through to batch optimization and quality control for... more...

Cyberpsychology is an emerging area of psychological study that aims to understand and explain all facets of online behaviour.

Rather than follow the traditional approach of stating mathematical principles and then citing some physical examples for illustration, Professor Mei puts applications at center stage. Beginning with the problem, he finds the mathematics that suits it and closes with a mathematical analysis of the physics. He selects physical examples primarily from applied mechanics. Among topics included are Fourier series, separation of variables, Bessel functions,... more...

Essential background reading for engineers and scientists working in such fields as communications, control, signal, and image processing, radar and sonar, radio astronomy, seismology, remote sensing, and instrumentation. The book can be used as a textbook for a single course, as well as a combination of an introductory and an advanced course, or even for two separate courses, one in signal detection, the other in estimation.

The number of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) operations has increased continually over the past decade. To date, roughly one-third of these are performed on women. Despite the tremendous progress made in cardiovascular surgery, not all patients profit equally from it, and the mortality rate of women still exceeds that of men by a factor of two. Studies conducted to investigate this marked gender difference have yielded conflicting... more...

In analysing speeches made by legislators, this book provides theoretical and empirical answers to questions such as: Why do some Members of Parliament (MPs) take the parliamentary floor and speak more than others, and why do some MPs deviate more than others from the ideological position of their party? The authors evaluate their hypotheses on legislative speechmaking by considering parliamentary debates in seven European democracies: Czech Republic,... more...
