The Unified Modelling Language, or the UML, is a graphical modelling language that
provides us with a syntax for describing the major elements (called artifacts in the
UML) of software systems. In this course, we will explore the main aspects of the
UML, and describe how the UML can be applied to software development projects.
Through to its core, UML leans towards object oriented software development, so in
this course, we will also explore some of the important principles of object
So, you’ve decided to take a public speaking course. This choice should prove to be as valuable to
you as many of the significant achievements in your life: advancing your career, starting a family, buying
peanut butter without partially hydrogenated soybean oil. At the least, Principles of Public Speaking should
enable you to develop the essential knowledge and skills for any successful and responsible member of civic
Rather than focusing on earlier treatments, based largely on the simplifications of geometrical acoustics, Physical Principles of Medical Ultrasonics examines concepts of wave acoustics, introducing them in the very first chapter. Practical implications of these concepts are explored, first the generation and nature of acoustic fields, and then their formal descriptions and measurement. Real tissues attenuate and scatter ultrasound in ways that have interesting relationships to their physical chemistry, and the book includes coverage of these topics.
The field of toxicology has grown enormously since Industrial Toxicology: Safety and Health Applications in the Workplace was first published in 1985. And while the original edition was hugely popular among occupational health professionals, the time is ripe to address toxic agents not only in the industrial setting but also in the environment at large.
Its goals are to present basic concepts in a general setting, to show students how the principles of electrical engineering apply to specific problems in their own fields, and to enhance the overall learning process. Circuit analysis, digital systems, electronics, and electromechanics are covered.
Presents the first unified exposition of the physical principles at the heart of NanoMEMS-based devices and applications Provides newcomers with a much needed coherent scientific base for undertaking study and research in this field Takes great pains in rendering transparent advanced physical concepts and techniques, such as quantum information, second quantization, Luttinger liquids, bosonization, and superconductivity
In 1899, the famous American psychologist, William James published
a little book called Talks to Teachers , in which he sought
to explain how to apply psychology to education — that is, he
sought to use what he called “ the science of the mind ’ s workings ”
to generate practical advice for classroom teachers. At the time,
the book was not much of a success, largely for two reasons: (a)
there was a lack of research evidence on how learning works (that
is, the science of learning), and (b) there was a lack of research -
based principles concerning how to help people learn (that is,...
With growth and development rapidly in Vietnam, is a danger of overuse and
poor management of natural resources, thus affecting sustainable development.
Level of understanding, knowledge and use of the principles of natural resources
management (NRE) is limited to Vietnam's agriculture. Design results
project is to start with the concept of resource management is used in many
organizations in Vietnam (Universities, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, and system extensions) and
enhanced to provide the set of policy knowledge, and advice to farmers in
The fundamental concepts, ideas and methods underlying all vibration phenomena are explained and illustrated in this book. The principles of classical linear vibration theory are brought together with vibration measurement, signal processing and random vibration for application to vibration problems in all areas of engineering. The book pays particular attention to the dynamics of structures, but the methods of analysis presented here apply readily to many other fields.
By means of the Hardy-Littlewood method, we apply a new mean value theorem for exponential sums to conﬁrm the truth, over the rational numbers, of the Hasse principle for pairs of diagonal cubic forms in thirteen or more variables. 1. Introduction Early work of Lewis  and Birch , , now almost a half-century old, shows that pairs of quite general homogeneous cubic equations possess non-trivial integral solutions whenever the dimension of the corresponding intersection is suitably large (modern reﬁnements have reduced this permissible aﬃne dimension to 826; see ). ...
You have in your possession the definitive and final answer to all business leadership
and organizational growth strategies. If you are a leader of any field, you are holding the
answer before all other answers for leadership in any and all fields! There will never be
another business book that can be before this book. You now have the fundamental power to
enhance your leadership abilities and your organization’s productivity. It may be true this book
is fresh off the press, but the information in this book is before all other business and self-help
Exercise Physiology for Health, Fitness, and Performance, Second Edition, reprinted by LWW, integrates basic exercise physiology with research studies to stimulate learning, allowing readers to apply principles in the widest variety of exercise and sport science careers. It combines basic exercise physiology with special applications and contains flexible organization of independent units, so instructors can teach according to their own approach.
That every idea in consciousness is energizing and carries with it an impulse to some kind of muscular activity
is a comparatively new but well-settled principle of psychology. That this principle could be made to serve
practical ends seems never to have occurred to anyone until within the last few years.
In this chapter you will: See how economists apply the methods of science, consider how assumptions and models can shed light on the world, learn two simple models - the circular flow and the production possibilities frontier, distinguish between microeconomics and macroeconomics,...
