The fifth edition of this classic book continues its excellence in teaching numerical analysis and techniques. Interesting and timely applications motivate an understanding of methods and analysis of results. Suitable for students with mathematics and engineering backgrounds, the breadth of topics (partial differential equations, systems of nonlinear equations, and matrix algebra), provide comprehensive and flexible coverage of all aspects of all numerical analysis.
Online reviews are often accompanied with numerical ratings provided by users for a set of service or product aspects. We propose a statistical model which is able to discover corresponding topics in text and extract textual evidence from reviews supporting each of these aspect ratings – a fundamental problem in aspect-based sentiment summarization (Hu and Liu, 2004a). Our model achieves high accuracy, without any explicitly labeled data except the user provided opinion ratings.
The scope of this electrical installation handbook is to provide the designer and
user of electrical plants with a quick reference, immediate-use working tool.
This is not intended to be a theoretical document, nor a technical catalogue,
but, in addition to the latter, aims to be of help in the correct definition of
equipment, in numerous practical installation situations.
Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is concerned with the efficient numerical solution of the partial differential equations that describe fluid dynamics. CFD techniques are commonly used in the many areas of engineering where fluid behavior is an important factor. Traditional fields of application include aerospace and automotive design, and more recently, bioengineering and consumer and medical electronics.
This book contains chapters on nanocomposites for engineering hard materials for high performance aircraft, rocket and automobile use, using laser pulses to form metal coatings on glass and quartz, and also tungsten carbide-cobalt nanoparticles using high voltage discharges. A major section of this book is largely devoted to chapters outlining and applying analytic methods needed for studies of nanocomposites. As such, this book will serve as good resource for such analytic methods.

During the last years, spectacular progress has been made in all aspects of heat transfer.
Heat transfer is a branch of engineering science and technology that deals with the
analysis of the rate of transfer thermal energy. Its fundamental modes are conduction,
convection, radiation, convection vs. conduction and mass transfer. It has a broad application
to many diff erent branches of science, technology and industry, ranging from
biological, medical and chemical systems, to common practice of thermal engineering
Diatoms are being used increasingly in a wide range of appli-
cations, and the number of diatomists and their publications
continues toincrease rapidly.Althoughseveralbookshavedealt
with various aspects of diatombiology, ecology, and taxonomy,
the ﬁrst edition of this volume, published over a decade ago,
was the ﬁrst to summarize the many applications and uses of
diatoms. However, many new and exciting papers have been
published in the intervening years.
In this book, a wide range of different topics related to analytical as well as numerical solutions of problems related to scattering, propagation, radiation, and emission in different medium are discussed. Design of several devices and their measurements aspects are introduced. Topics related to microwave region as well as Terahertz and quasi-optical region are considered. Bi-isotropic metamaterial in optical region is investigated.
Intuitively, a simple event notiﬁcation service that provides no selection
mechanism can be reduced to a multicast routing and transport mechanism
for which there are numerous scalable implementations. However, once the
service provides a selection mechanism, then the overall efﬁciency of the ser-
vice and its routing of notiﬁcations are affected by the power of the language
used to construct notiﬁcations and to express ﬁlters and patterns. As the power
of the language increases, so does the complexity of the processing.
Since the discovery of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in 1989, there has been an explosion
of research and information on the virus. This is evidenced by the more than 20 000
papers onHCV(as of December, 2000), as well as the numerous reviews in journals
and edited books. The purpose of this book is to present an overview of the
diVerent disciplines that have contributed to an understanding of the virus, its
diseases, current and proposed treatments, and much more.
The end of the 1970s saw the idea of fractal geometry spread into numerous
areas of physics. Indeed, the concept of fractal geometry, introduced by B.
Mandelbrot, provides a solid framework for the analysis of natural phenomena
in various scientific domains. As Roger Pynn wrote in Nature, “If this opinion
continues to spread, we won’t have to wait long before the study of fractals
becomes an obligatory part of the university curriculum.”
Shape memory alloys have become in the past decades a well established research subject. However, the complex relations between properties and structure have created a continuously growing interest for a deeper insight all this time. The complexity of relationships between structure and properties is mostly related to the fact that strong ?multidimensional? interactions are taking place: from the early studies focusing on the thermal and/or mechanical induced phase transformations to the more recent findings on the magnetically induced structural changes.
This book covers comprehensive text and reference work on atmospheric models for
methods of numerical modeling and important related areas of data assimilation and
predictability. It incorporates various aspects of environmental computer modeling
including an historical overview of the subject, approximations to land surface and
atmospheric physics and dynamics, radiative transfer and applications in satellite
remote sensing, and data assimilation.
A public bad bank must be in a position to address numerous challenges. First, the
transparent removal of troubled assets is necessary in order to ensure that the rescued
bank has real prospects for a fresh start. Second, the costs of the bailout for the taxpayer
should be minimized. Third, no incentives or new opportunities for opportunistic
behavior in the future should be created.
Navigant conducted initial meetings with the Port Authority’s Chief Administrative Officer and
Human Resource departments. Subsequent to the meetings, information requests were sent in
order to facilitate the review of key documents and other pertinent information. Navigant
reviewed multiple documents, conducted numerous in person and telephonic interviews as
well as performed detailed analyses of base pay, overtime, “add‐on” compensation, healthcare
costs, and other benefit analyses.
Young people deserve special attention in development settings, where they
often lack access to services that adults in many countries take for granted. This
makes young people vulnerable. Millions do not know how to protect themselves
against unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, or are
ill equipped to do so. Young women and girls lack decision-making power and
many are subjected to gender-based violence every day. In many places, lesbian,
gay, bisexual and transgender young people live in fear of discrimination and
Useful as it is however, the NCI Metathesaurus is not well suited to serve as a coding nomenclature1
hierarchies of the NCI terminology in NCI Metathesaurus are not true IS_A hierarchies, for example. The
NCI Thésaurus, which became operational in late 2001, is designed to address this need. It is intended for
NCI offices and divisions to use the Thésaurus as a source of codes associated with terminology concepts
to annotate data and other information artifacts and facilitate information retrieval.
This wide-ranging introduction to the basic techniques in business mathematics and statistics is broken down into ten separate parts, each of which covers standard examination testing areas. Each chapter concludes with a summary, review notes and student exercises which concentrate on the more practical numerical aspects covered in the chapter.
This effect creates the effect of card choreography by segmenting layers into numerous cards and then
controlling all geometric aspects of the cards using a second layer. For example, Card Dance can simulate
an extruded pin sculpture, a crowd “doing the wave,” or letters ﬂoating on the surface of a pond.
