Continuing interest in the subject of reliability and the heretofore unavailability
of our book Mathematical Theory of Reliability have encouraged publication of
this SIAM Classics edition. We have not revised the original version, although
much has transpired since its original publication in 1965. Although many
contemporary reliability books are now available, few provide as mathematically
rigorous a treatment of the required probability background as this one.
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.
This book is structured in three parts. In Part I, we aim to sensitise you,
the reader, to the complex issues that challenge qualitative researchers
at the planning stage of their projects. In Part II, the challenge of using
different methodologies in practice is critically explored by 15 authors
who share their individual research experiences. Part III examines the
choices we make when we evaluate and present research.
We hope you will find this book both exciting and helpful. Inevitably,
there are many gaps in terms of topics and issues covered, and methodologies
Since the publication of this book, in 1983, several new and exciting
developments have taken place in the field of Plant Tissue Culture, and
it now forms a major component of what is popularly called Plant Biotechnology.
Many of the important crop plants which were then regarded
as recalcitrant are now amenable to regeneration from cultured protoplasts,
cells, and calli, enabling subjection of these crops to improvement
by biotechnological methods of cell manipulation.
The most widely used analytical separation technique for the qualitative and quantitative determination of chemical mixtures in solution in the pharmaceutical industry is high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). However, conventional detectors used to monitor the separation, such as UV, refractive index, ﬂuorescence, and radioactive detectors, provide limited information on the molecular structure of the components of the mixture. Mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) are the primary analytical techniques that provide structural information on the analytes.
Chirality plays a major role in biological processes, and the enantiomers of a bioactive molecule often possess different biological effects. For example, all pharmacological activity may reside in one enantiomer of a molecule, or enantiomers may have identical qualitative and quantitative pharmacological activity. In some cases, enantiomers may have qualitatively similar pharmacological activity, but different quantitative potencies.
The classic text on helicopter aerodynamics, "Aerodynamics of the Helicopter" has been in continuous print for over fifty years. Clearly written and well illustrated, the book focuses on fundamental physical relationships without a highly complex mathematical development. The emphasis on fundamentals makes the book an ideal - indeed, necessary - first step towards more advanced study.
Russian mathematics (later Soviet mathematics, and Russian mathematics once
again) occupies a special place in twentieth-century mathematics. In addition
to its well-known achievements, Russian mathematics established a unique style
of research based on the existence of prominent mathematical schools. These
schools were headed by recognized leaders, who became famous due to their
talents and outstanding contributions to science.
The Fuzzy Set Theory developed by L. Zadeh (Zadeh 1965) as a possible way to
handle uncertainty is particularly useful for the representation of vague expert
knowledge and processing uncertain or imprecise information. The Fuzzy Set
Theory is based on an extension of the classical meaning of the term "set" and
formulates specific logical and arithmetical operations for processing information
defined in the form of fuzzy sets and fuzzy rules.

A third group of experiments explored possible differences
in willingness to pay and willingness to accept. In these experiments, the choices involved
valuations of everyday objects (e.g. a coffee mug). It has been suggested that observed
differences are due to an asymmetry of preferences between losses and gains that might be
exacerbated by age. Finally, both younger and older subjects participated in beauty contest
games, in which strategic thinking plays a central role.
The Toulouse School of Economics regularly appears as number one in Europe in rankings based on publication records.
Econphd.net ranked TSE among the best in Europe across all economics fields (first in the world in the economics of
information, and second in the world in industrial organization).
Faculty members are recognized as leaders in their fields and have published many books and articles in top academic

This collection offers new perspectives on ethical naturalism, narrowly
construed as the conjunction of two core theses. One holds that there
are moral properties and facts, the other that at least some such properties
and facts are natural properties and facts. Thus understood, ethical
naturalism is distinct from, though usually motivated by, philosophical
naturalism, a more general metaphysical outlook according to which all
there is is the world as conceived by science.

Financial and insurance markets always operate under various types of uncertainties
that can affect nancial positions of companies and individuals. In nancial and
insurance theories these uncertainties are usually referred to as risks. Given certain
states of the market, and the economy in general, one can talk about risk exposure.
Any economic activities of individuals, companies and public establishments aiming
for wealth accumulation assume studying risk exposure. The sequence of the corresponding
actions over some period of time forms the process of risk management.
