  • Being first in line earns a devoted fan the best seat in the stadi- um. The first runner to break the ribbon spanning the finish line receives a gold medal. The firstborn child inherits the royal throne. Certain advantages or privileges often accompany being the first, but sometimes the price paid is considerable.

  • Why did I decide to write this book? As an undergraduate student I could not make up my mind whether I wanted to be a zoologist or a botanist, so I decided to adopt ecology, in its broadest sense, as my area of interest. This led me to think about interactions among organisms and to try to look at ecosystems from a holistic, rather than from an autecological, point of view. As someone with little formal training in mycology, my interest in fungi started during my doctoral research, especially when attending university-wide lectures by C. T. Ingold,...

  • This study analyzes and provides empirical tests of early warning indicators of banking and currency crises in emerging economies. The aim is to identify key empirical regularities in the run-up to banking and currency crises that would enable officials and private market participants to recognize vulnerability to financial crises at an earlier stage. This, in turn, should make it easier to motivate the corrective policy actions that would prevent such crises from actually taking place.

  • Logic for Computer Science" provides an introduction to mathematical logic, with emphasis on proof theory and procedures for constructing formal proofs of formulae algorithmically. It is designed primarily for students, computer scientists, and, more generally, for mathematically inclined readers interested in the formalization of proofs and the foundations of automatic theorem proving. Since the main emphasis of the text is on the study of proof systems and algorithmic methods for constructing proofs, it contains features rarely found in other texts on logic.

  • This occasional paper defines an approach to strategic planning and then illustrates how one might implement the approach to define alternative counterterrorism strategies, using RAND researchers and research as a resource. It should be of interest to those in the incoming administration as well as throughout the U.S. government interested in doing strategic planning. The paper is also a resource for those involved in defining U.S. counterterrorism strategies inside and outside the U.S. government.

  • Every author owes debts more numerous than he can mention. Of some, he is barely aware, though they are no less real for that. More troubling are those that run so deeply that they cannot easily if ever be repaid, and certainly not by the bare acknowledgment of their existence. Still, it remains important to mention them, even if the gesture is brief and fleeting. I first became interested in epistemological issues surrounding the law about five years ago, having previously devoted myself to the philosophy of science and applied epistemology....

  • Lotfi Zadeh, the father of fuzzy logic, coined the phrase computing with words (CWW) to describe a methodology in which the computation objects are words drawn from a natural language. This text explains how to implement CWW for making subjective judgments using the three components of a Perceptual Computer (encoder, CWW engines, and decoder) and then providing detailed applications. The coverage divides the content into application chapters and detail chapters, including brief summaries of detail chapters for readers more interested in applications.

  • The IWC program was a newscast by Bill Howard, and the news was particularly vicious that night. Bill, his big homely face leaning across a desk toward the viewer, talked in horrified tones of the "pest-sub" that had reputedly got stuck in the Suez and spread epidemic across Cairo. It was easy to assume, Bill told his audience, that the nations most interested in creating a crisis in the world right now had put the sub there to make an excuse to accuse us of the terror. It was undoubtedly really there, and was undoubtedly really of American make, and...

  • Prior to 1970, texts concerned with comparative and international issues and dimensions were relatively rare. A few American commentators devoted some attention to developments in sport in the then Soviet Union and also produced, through assembled descriptive accounts, information on health, physical education and recreation in a number of countries around the world. After 1970, there was an increasing interest in international aspects of physical education, testimony to which was the plethora of descriptive articles contributed to professional journals by American physical educators.

  • The discovery of efficacious new human therapeutic agents is one of humanity’s most vital tasks. It is an enormously demanding activity that requires creativity, a vast range of scientific knowledge, and great persistence. It is also an exceedingly expensive activity. In an ideal world, no education would be complete without some exposure to the ways in which new medicines are discovered and developed. For those young people interested in science or medicine, such knowledge is arguably mandatory....

  • The topic of business process outsourcing (BPO) has become controversial and the subject of a great deal of media attention over the past year. As an executive who has been using outsourcing as a business strategy for more than a decade, the recent upsurge in interest in the topic was unexpected. Perhaps the fact that 2004 is an election year has something to do with it. Or maybe, as the authors point out, the convergence of a number of social and technological factors has only recently made BPO an option for organizations of nearly any size....

  • My interest in environmental pollution control microbiology began at MIT in 1948 when I realized that very little was known about this vital area of sanitary engineering technology. I became a serious student of environmental pollution control microbiology in 1950 when I began research on the microbiology and the biochemistry of floe-forming bacteria in activated sludge. I must admit that environmental pollution control microbiology has been my area of technical specialization since 1950. It has been a most interesting experience that I have never regretted.

  • The contents of this book are based loosely on presentations at a special symposium, “Application of Interface Science to Environmental Pollution Control,” held as part of the ACS National Meeting in Chicago, August 26–30, 2001. This symposium offered an opportunity for researchers from a range of disciplines to discuss the role of interface science in environmental remediation. The development of an archival book based on this meeting is a timely contribution to a burgeoning area of research that is now attracting the attention of a diverse research community.
