Nevertheless, one must acknowledge that Bonfand’s book takes risks, and can even
be called a theoretical tour de force. By rejecting citation and confronting painting and
cinema according to their ‘phenomenologicallity’, Bonfand truly ponders the relation
between painting and cinema beyond the box, even though the correlation between the
two may sometimes seem too loose in a couple of chapters. Additionally, the different
essays remain too randomly juxtaposed, which deprives the book from having a solid
structure and argument.
The first edition of this text was written in the early 1990s. Since then, the field of
clinical research methods has continued to develop rapidly, and this second
edition has been extensively updated to reflect these developments. We have also
tried to make the whole book more user friendly, both in layout and in content.
All chapters now have summaries and boxes highlighting the key points, and we
have provided many more illustrative examples.
The biggest area of change is in our treatment of qualitative methods.
In this study we explore some of the issues in depth for a particular example. We then suggest ways to improve the quality of metamodeling by striking a synthesis between statistical and more phenomenological approaches.
Pain is the most common physical complaint while depression is the second most debilitating chronic medical condition. The co-occurrence of pain and depression is well known but a detailed understanding of their phenomenology, interrelationship, and effective therapies remains speculative.
This book presents a mathematical development of a recent approach to
the modeling and simulation of turbulent flows based on methods for
the approximate solution of inverse problems. The resulting Approximate
Deconvolution Models or ADMs have some advantages (as well as some
disadvantages) over more commonly used turbulence models:
ADMs are supported by a mathematically rigorous theoretical foundation.
ADMs are a family of models of increasing accuracy O(δ2N+2), where δ is
the averaging (or filter) radius...
Editors bring together a diverse group of scholars who share valuable qualitative research techniques and rich case examples. Qualitative methodologies and the different paradigms which guide them can be seen as both an alternative and complementary approach to quantification and positivism in social, personality, developmental, health, clinical, counseling, community, and school psychology.
The increasing demand on ultra miniturized electronic devices for ever improving
performances has led to the necessity of a deep and detailed understanding
of the mathematical theory of charge transport in semiconductors.
Dystonia has many facets, and among those, this book commences with the
increasingly associated genes identified, including a construct on how biology
interacts with the dystonia genesis. The clinical phenomenology of dystonia as
approached in the book is interesting because, not only were the cervical,
oromandibular/lingual/laryngeal, task-specific and secondary dystonias dealt with
individually, but that the associated features such as parkinsonism, tremors and
spasticity were also separately presented.
