Modelling and computations in electromagnetics is a quite fast-growing research area. The recent interest in this field is caused by the increased demand for designing complex microwave components, modeling electromagnetic materials, and rapid increase in computational power for calculation of complex electromagnetic problems. The first part of this book is devoted to the advances in the analysis techniques such as method of moments, finite-difference time- domain method, boundary perturbation theory, Fourier analysis, mode-matching method, and analysis based on circuit theory....

Wavelets in Boundary Integral Equations
Numerical treatment of integral equations can be found in classic books [1, 2]. In this chapter the integral equations obtained from ﬁeld analysis of electromagnetic wave scattering, radiating, and guiding problems are solved by the wavelet expansion method [3–7]. The integral equations are converted into a system of linear algebraic equations. The subsectional bases, namely the pulses or piecewise sinusoidal (PWS) modes, are replaced by a set of orthogonal wavelets.
Although much of its discovery process is descriptive and qualitative, chemistry is fundamentally a
quantitative science. It serves a wide range of human needs, activities, and concerns. The mathematical sciences
provide the language for quantitative science, and this language is growing in many directions as computational
science in general continues its rapid expansion. A timely opportunity now exists to strengthen and increase the
beneficial impacts of chemistry by enhancing the interaction between chemistry and the mathematical sciences.
Locating fault equipment
If BSC has fault, usually it will affect some Sites or all of Sites
If BTS has fault, usually it just affect itself and the handover success rate of adjacent cells
During implementation or expansion, we can “Interchange ” BTS and judge whether the fault is because of BSC or BTS
During maintenance, BSC faults don’t just affect one BTS

The investment in stock market is increasing at a faster rate in the recent years because of FIIs, FDIs, Stock
market awareness etc. investment in Debentures, Bank Deposits, are not so attractive because of less amount of
interest, as in real terms the value of money decreases over a period of time. The other option is to invest money
in stock market, but a common man is not much aware of market and he is not much component enough to
understand the functions of stock market and also it is an expansive proposal. The question to be answered is:...

Ho Chi Minh City is a one of the biggest cities of Vietnam. Before 1945, there were about 400,000 inhabitants living in the city. During the last two decades, it became the biggest industrial and commercial center of the country. According to the statistics in 2005, its population was about 6.2 million people. In the suburban areas of the city, particularly in the northern part, agricultural activities produce the main income of these local residents.
If the initial target is set as a result of competitive tendering, then the
employer may feel some assurance that he is obtaining ‘value for money’. But
if the target is negotiated or later has to be varied, then the employer may feel
that the contractor’s knowledge of his intended methods and costs may
enable him to add a margin in the target estimate to safeguard his position.
This means that it is improbable that the target cost will ever be lower than the
contractor’s privately estimated bottom line price....
Of course, credit expansion for reasons beyond economic merit might for a while help
increasing economic growth. If credit expansion works toward the extension of productive
capacity, this process might go on for an extended period of time, even if borrowers in the
long run will not be able to pay back their loan. The downside in this case is the accumulation
of non-performing loans in the banking sector which in the end might lead to high fiscal cost.
This might actually be what has been observed in China: One could argue that a non-trivial
part of the loans by...
One of the main tasks of economics is to explode the basic in-
flationary fallacy that confused the thinking ofauthors and statesmen
from the days ofJohn Law down to those of Lord Keynes. There
cannot be any question of monetary reconstruction and economic
recovery as long as such fables as that of the blessings of 'expansion-
ism' form an integral part ofofficial doctrine and guide the economic
policies of the nations.
None of the arguments that economics advances against the
inflationist and expansionist doctrine is likely to impress demagogues.
Empirical models for money holdings are
applied for two purposes. First, they are used to
guide the analysis of monetary developments,
as a means of quantifying the contribution of
various economic determinants to money growth
in order to provide a deeper understanding of the
causes of money growth. This is necessary in
order to develop a view of underlying monetary
expansion. Second, the models provide a
normative framework to assess whether the stock
of money in the economy is consistent with price
stability and to interpret the nature of deviations
from this norm.
Voluntary carbon offsets have been traded in relatively small volumes and on a
demonstration basis since the late 1980s. Some organizations, such as the Climate Trust
in Oregon, have many years of experience in purchasing and retiring offsets on behalf of
clients or customers (the Climate Trust was established in 1997 to assist new power
plants in Oregon to meet a state regulatory requirement for net CO2 emissions).
This paper develops a minimally supervised
approach, based on focused distributional sim-
ilarity methods and discourse connectives,
for identifying of causality relations between
events in context. While it has been shown
that distributional similarity can help identify-
ing causality, we observe that discourse con-
nectives and the particular discourse relation
they evoke in context provide additional in-
formation towards determining causality be-
Zambia’s economic growth slowed to 6.6% in 2011 from 7.6% in 2010, mainly as a result of a weaker mining
sector performance. However, the medium-term economic outlook appears favourable, underpinned by
sustained expansion in agriculture, construction, manufacturing, transport and communications, and by a
rebound in mining. Inﬂation is projected to remain in single digits, reﬂecting prudent monetary policy, while the
objective of exchange rate policy is to maintain external competitiveness.
The Total Suspended Solids (TSS) standard identified in the USEPA Cluster Rules for
New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) is the benchmark for existing mills, as
Alberta mills currently apply the technology required to achieve this standard. This was
based on a review of the current performance values for Alberta mills, other Canadian
mills, top performing mills in the U.S., and allows for sufficient flexibility for plant
operations during shutdown, start-up and upset conditions. Alberta’s standards for TSS
are a monthly average of 4.0 kg/ADt and daily maximum of 8.
