  • Pronunciation, by definition, is to do with a language in its spoken form, i.e. with sounds. A printed book expresses whatever it has to say, even about pronunciation, through the very different medium of the written language. So, right at the outset of a book such as this we have a problem – or, rather, a number of interrelated problems. In particular, we have to ask and, one hopes, answer the questions: what justification is there for even attempting to discuss the spoken medium through the written medium? and, secondly, supposing such justification can be demonstrated, how do we set...

  • Algorithms play the central role both in the science and practice of computing. Recognition of this fact has led to the appearance of a considerable number of textbooks on the subject. By and large, they follow one of two alternatives in presenting algorithms. One classifies algorithms according to a problem type. Such a book would have separate chapters on algorithms for sorting, searching, graphs, and so on. The advantage of this approach is that it allows an immediate comparison of, say, the efficiency of different algorithms for the same problem.

  • Fractures are ubiquitous in the brittle lithosphere in the upper part of earth’s crust. They play a critical role in the transport of fluids. Moreover, all major discovered geothermal reservoirs and a considerable number of petroleum reservoirs are in fractured rocks. This restates the importance of studying multiphase flow behavior inside the opened fracture space. From the engineering point of view, a rock fracture as defined here is simply a complex-shaped cavity filled with fluids or solid minerals. Therefore it is understood to include cracks, joints, and faults.

  • Many chaotic circuit models have been developed and studied up to date. Autonomous and nonautonomous Chua’s circuits hold a special importance in the studies of chaotic system modeling and chaos-based science and engineering applications. Since a considerable number of hardware and software-based design and implementation approaches can be applied to Chua’s circuits, these circuits also constitute excellent educative models that have pedagogical value in the study of nonlinear dynamics and chaos.

  • A detailed empirical study of how small business owners finance their enterprises, this volume compares the experiences of women with those of men. The author redresses an over-reliance on subjective and anecdotal evidence of discrimination in this area with a controlled study of forty matched pairs of male/female owners, and their strategies for raising finances. The book finds considerable similarities between female and male entrepreneurs in the type and amount of finance used in the business.

  • Among performance audits, the number and complexity of the planning issues can be even greater. The methodology for assessing the operating efficiency of an entity will be quite different from that for attempting to measure the effectiveness of a programme in achieving its stated objectives. These two kinds of audits involve collecting and analysing different kinds of data from different sources.

  • One important consideration when examining database technologies is the user community—the number of users who need to be able to use the database. Users are not only the people, but also the other applications that can interactively access the database. If a different application or system needs to access a database, its impact on the database must be taken into account.

  • Lead-acid starter batteries are used in land, sea, and air vehicles. Batteries for vehicles are discussed in this chapter. The production of starter batteries approaches 60 million pieces. About 16 million pieces are used for motor vehicle production and about 38 million pieces keep the vehicles ready for operation as back-up batteries. A considerable number of imported and exported pieces play a part in this market. With these numbers Europe achieves about two-thirds of the U.S. production. ...

  • While many HIV-infected individuals do not wish to have children, others desire children despite their infected status. The desire and intent to have children among HIV-infected individuals may increase because of improved quality of life and survival following commencement of anti-retroviral treatment. In developing countries such as South Africa, where the largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide reside, specific government reproductive health policy and service provision for HIV-infected individuals is underdeveloped.

  • We were able to obtain satisfactory postoperative PSA levels by RTUR-PCa comparable with open radical prostatectomy. But we recently started to think that, after a considerable number of the procedures, minimal residual prostate tissue at the part where cancer was not detected by biopsy might not necessarily prevent the radicality of the disease in carefully selected patients. We performed prostate biopsy to get information about the localization of cancer. The results of cancer localization from operative specimens were consistent with those from biopsy specimens in 46.7%....

  • International travel is undertaken by large, and ever increasing, numbers of people for professional, social, recreational and humanitarian purposes. More people travel greater distances and at greater speed than ever before, and this upward trend looks set to continue. Travellers are thus exposed to a variety of health risks in unfamiliar environments. Most such risks, however, can be minimized by suitable precautions taken before, during and after travel.

  • THE number of English arithmetics before the sixteenth century is very small. This is hardly to be wondered at, as no one requiring to use even the simplest operations of the art up to the middle of the fifteenth century was likely to be ignorant of Latin, in which language there were several treatises in a considerable number of manuscripts, as shown by the quantity of them still in existence.

  • Three years ago I was a confused third-year medical student, not having any idea about the next step in my education and professional training. Deciding on a ca- reer in medicine was easy; choosing a specialty, on the other hand, was agoniz- ing. Like my classmates, I felt overwhelmed by the number of choices. I imag- ined myself as a future surgeon or emergency medicine physician, but after extensive research and clinical experiences, I soon discovered that anesthesiol- ogy was the perfect fit.

  • In our experiments, 42 MICAz nodes were used. The experimentswere conductedwith multiple randomly generated layouts under two different scenarios: (i) an open parking lot, and (ii) an indoor office. In each sce- nario, two types of experiments were conducted: Fixed Single Sender and Round Robin Sender. In the Fixed Single Sender experiment, the sender was placed in the center of the topology, while the other 41 nodes were randomly deployed as receivers. The sender broadcasted a packet in every 200ms. Each packet was identified by a sequence number.

  • Recent years have witnessed increasingly growing awareness for long-range planning in all sectors. Companies are concerned more than ever about long-term stability and profitability. The chemical process industries is no exception. New environmental regulations, rising competition, new technology, uncertainty of demand, and fluctuation of prices have all led to an increasing need for decision policies that will be ‘‘best” in a dynamic sense over a wide time horizon. Quantitative techniques have long established their importance in such decision-making problems.

  • Nanoelectronics is a rapidly expanding field with researchers exploring a very large number of innovative techniques for constructing devices intended to implement high-speed logic or high-density memory. Less common, however, is work intended to examine how to utilize such devices in the construction of a complete computer system. As devices become smaller, it becomes possible to construct ever more complex systems but to do so means that new and challenging problems must be addressed.

  • Using the property transaction data, we compute manager-specific characteristic timing and characteristic selectivity measures. We use property portfolio index returns at a CBSA level, a state level, a divisional level, a regional level and at the whole national level. The resulting characteristic timing and characteristic selectivity measures suggest that the vast majority of both public REIT and private portfolio managers possess little or even negative ability to successfully time their investments vis a vis the market regardless of the level of benchmark specialization.
