An observational study is an empiric investigation of effects caused by treatments when randomized experimentation is unethical or infeasible. Observational studies are common in most fields that study the effects of treatments on people, including medicine, economics, epidemiology, education, psychology, political science and sociology. The quality and strength of evidence provided by an observational study is determined largely by its design. Design... more...

This new edition details the important features of beam shaping and exposes the subtleties of the theory and techniques that are best demonstrated through proven applications. New chapters cover illumination light shaping in optical lithography; optical micro-manipulation of live mammalian cells through trapping, sorting, and transfection; and laser beam shaping through fiber optic beam delivery. The book discusses applications in lithography, laser... more...

A unique and accessible account of Newton's popular and scientific reputation. Isaac Newton is now universally celebrated as a genius of science, renowned for his innovatory work on gravity and optics. Yet the term 'scientist' was not coined until the 1830s, a hundred years after his death. And Newton did not always enjoy such legendary status. A reclusive scholar who wrote more about alchemy and theology than natural philosophy, he has been heroised... more...


Gooley’s more than two decades of pioneering outdoor experience include research among the Dayak people of Borneo and the Tuareg of the Sahara. With his first book, The Natural Navigator, he started a renaissance in the rare art of reading nature’s clues. Now, in The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs, Gooley has compiled more than 850 outdoor tips—many not found in any other book in the world—that will open readers’... more...


Computerized data acquisition systems are often the principal method of recording experimental results. This book takes the reader step-by-step through the process of data acquisition and analysis, explaining how to set up the systems and obtain useful information from the data recorded. In an easy-to-read style, the author guides researchers through the basics of data acquisition systems, explaining the important underlying concepts, and giving... more...

This detailed account of the controversy surrounding the publication of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity explores the ferocious popular and academic opposition which at one time encircled one of the most important scientific breakthroughs of the twentieth century. Based on extensive archival research, this fascinating discourse includes a compelling and entertaining examination of the contemporary literature created by Einstein's detractors.... more...

Network Science is the emerging field concerned with the study of large, realistic networks. This interdisciplinary endeavor, focusing on the patterns of interactions that arise between individual components of natural and engineered systems, has been applied to data sets from activities as diverse as high-throughput biological experiments, online trading information, smart-meter utility supplies, and pervasive telecommunications and surveillance... more...

Machine-based Intelligent Face Recognition discusses the general engineering method of imitating intelligent human brains for video-based face recognition in a fundamental way, which is completely unsupervised, automatic, self-learning, self-updated and robust. It also overviews state-of-the-art research on cognitive-based biometrics and machine-based biometrics, and especially the advances in face recognition. This book is intended for scientists,... more...
