The Physical Chemistry In Brief offers a digest of all major formulas, terms and definitions
needed for an understanding of the subject. They are illustrated by schematic figures, simple
worked-out examples, and a short accompanying text. The concept of the book makes it
different from common university or physical chemistry textbooks. In terms of contents, the
Physical Chemistry In Brief embraces the fundamental course in physical chemistry as taught
at the Institute of Chemical Technology, Prague, i.e.
Dramatic progress has been made in all branches of physics since the National Research Council's 1986 decadal survey of the field. The Physics in a New Era series explores these advances and looks ahead to future goals. The series includes assessments of the major subfields and reports on several smaller subfields, and preparation has begun on an overview volume on the unity of physics, its relationships to other fields, and its contributions to national needs.
Exciting new observational and theoretical advances lead today's solar physicists to challenge many of the predictions of even recent models. This volume summarizes the major questions at the forefront of solar physics theory and observations, and proposes priority recommendations to explore these questions.
Greenway is one of several examples of how the private sector is committed to this
transformation and has taken charge through leading the health information technology
and electronic health record industry. Greenway was founded on the premise that HIT &
EHRs dramatically reduce medical errors, lower costs, improve quality and efficiency
and create a substantial return on investment for physicians and practices among many
This chapter examines the various issues related to the process of moving a product from one country to another, beginning by comparing and contrasting the major transportation modes. The discussion then focuses on insurance and packing for export.

Unit Two PHYSICS
Physics is the major science dealing with the fundamental constituents of the universe, the forces they exert on one another, and the results produced by these forces. Sometimes in modern physics a more sophisticated approach is taken that incorporates elements of the three areas listed above; it relates to the laws of symmetry and conservation, such as those pertaining to energy, momentum, charge, and parity. Physics is closely related to the other natural sciences and, in a sense, encompasses them. ...
A Public Health Perspective of Women’s Mental Health examines major issues in
the organization, financing, and provision of women’s mental health services. It also
presents an overview of the epidemiology of mental disorders across the lifespan
of women, an in-depth discussion of selected mental and substance use disorders
that particularly affect women, and includes an examination of emerging issues in
women’s mental health.
This is an intermediate level post-calculus text on mathematical and statistical
methods, directed toward the needs of chemists. It has developed out of a
course that I teach at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for thirdyear
undergraduate chemistry majors and, with additional assignments, for
chemistry graduate students.
This book brings together many authoritative scientific and technological papers
which demonstrate the way in which systematic studies can help decision-makers
understand the linkages between land- and water-use practices and their impacts on
coral reef processes and structure.
Mobile and Wireless Communications have been one of the major revolutions of the late
twentieth century. We are witnessing a very fast growth in these technologies where mobile
and wireless communications have become so ubiquitous in our society and indispensable
for our daily lives. The relentless demand for higher data rates with better quality of services
to comply with state-of-the art applications has revolutionized the wireless communication
field and led to the emergence of new technologies such as Bluetooth, WiFi, Wimax, Ultra
We have compiled and written this textbook to highlight the clinical indications and
applications of cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Over the past few decades,
MRI has become an essential element of decision making for many medical specialties.
However, though cardiovascular diseases are a major cause of morbidity and mortality
throughout the world, MRI of the heart and great vessels has experienced relatively slow
During development, cells and tissues undergo dynamic changes in pattern
and form that employ a wider range of physical mechanisms than at any other
time during an organism’s life. Biological Physics of the Developing Embryo presents
a framework within which physics can be used to analyze these biological
Written to be accessible to both biologists and physicists, major stages
and components of biological development are introduced and then analyzed
from the viewpoint of physics. The presentation of physical models requires no
mathematics beyond basic calculus.
Nanoscale physics, nowadays one of the most topical research subjects, has
two major areas of focus. One is the important field of potential applications
bearing the promise of a great variety of materials having specific properties
that are desirable in daily life. Even more fascinating to the researcher in
physics are the fundamental aspects where quantum mechanics is seen at work;
most macroscopic phenomena of nanoscale physics can only be understood and
described using quantum mechanics. The emphasis of the present volume is
on this latter aspect....
Ultrasound has become an integral component of obstetric care, with the vast majority of patients having at least one ultrasound examination during pregnancy. From the determination of early pregnancy and gestational age to the evaluation of fetal growth and well being, ultrasound is a valuable diagnostic tool for the practicing obstetrician. Recent advances in obstetric ultrasonography have increased its importance in managing pregnancies at risk for aneuploidy, structural anomalies, preterm delivery, and blood flow abnormalities. ...
After the ground breaking discovery of electrical charge carrier transport in
polymers in the late 1980s by Alan J. Heeger, Alan G. MacDiarmid and Hideki
Shirakawa [1–3], who were awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2000, the
question arose as to whether organic materials would also find applications as
organic semiconductors. This field really started to attract major attention after
the demonstration of the first organic light emitting device (OLED) in 1987 by
Tang and Van Slyke .
From the Preface to the Third Edition, by Russell K.
Between 1971 and 1973 I audited all the
courses medical students take in their first two
years at the University of Minnesota. I was
amazed at the amount of physics I found in these
courses and how little of it is discussed in the
general physics course.
I found a great discrepancy between the
physics in some papers in the biological research
literature and what I knew to be the level of understanding
of most biology majors or premed
students who have taken a year of physics....
In 2003, the National Research Council (NRC) published the first decadal strategy for solar and
space physics: The Sun to the Earth—and Beyond: A Decadal Research Strategy in Solar and Space
Physics.1 That report included a recommended suite of NASA missions that were ordered by priority,
presented in an appropriate sequence, and selected to fit within the expected resource profile for the next
Th is book represents what we have learned in our combined seventy years
as clinical psychologists, sex and marital therapists, and teachers and
researchers. We are especially indebted to our clients and students who
have taught us so much and added to the quality of the material in this
Two hundred years ago, Lewis and Clark led their “Corps of Discovery”
on an unprecedented expedition to explore the vast dimensions of the
nation’s longest and largest river basin—the Missouri. Their central charge
was to seek a water route to the Pacific Ocean to support commerce and
development. Since those early days, the Missouri River and its tributaries
have occupied a unique place in United States history.
