The book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences is designed to help under-
graduate and PhD students, postdocs, and professionals to ﬁ nd quick solu-
tions for common problems in data analysis in earth sciences. The book
provides a minimum amount of theoretical background, but then tries to
teach the application of all methods by examples. The software MATLAB
is used since it provides numerous ready-to-use algorithms for most meth-
ods of data analysis, but also gives the opportunity to modify and expand
the existing routines and even develop new software.
The purpose of the thesis is to develop a theoretical background for life insurance business law, and then to assess the statement of current legislation and recommend the solutions for improving legislation of life insurance business in order to meet the requirements of the economy and international integration
I could not complete my assignment without the great help and useful advice from my teacher, my family as well as my friends. Firstly, I would like to express my great thanks to y supervisor, M.A. Nguyen Thi Van Lam for her enthusiastic help. Secondly, I would like to express my deep thanks to all the teachers in Foreign Language Department of Vinh University for giving me helpful lectures. My thanks also go to my director, Ms Nguyen Thi Yen and all the colleagues at
At the end of the course, the students will be able to:
understand the special characteristics of children as language learners;
manage children language classes;
create, adapt and analyse activities and resources for YL
apply theoretical background into practice of teaching language skills.
This thesis has been done in an effort to investigate how euphemism is
translated from English into Vietnamese in translated works as well as to
find out what are the main approaches taken by translators in translating
euphemism from English into Vietnamese. A collection of samples taken
from literary works written in English and their Vietnamese versions have
been analyzed to explore ways in which euphemisms are transferred.
Besides, quantitative analyses have also been carried out to show
distribution of ways of translating, on the basis of which to identify
A dual fluidized beds system essentially comprises of two fluidized bed reactors coupled
together with a provision of gas or materials transfer in between. It may be a combination of
circulating-circulating or bubbling-circulating or bubbling-bubbling type systems. A noble
application is in a gasification process for coal or biomass where nitrogen of air is not
allowed to dilute the product gas.
Clear and concise, this easy-to-use text offers an introductory course on the language of gene cloning, covering microbial, plant, and animal systems. The essential concepts in biology relevant to the understanding of gene cloning are presented in a well-organized and accessible manner. This updated version of the first edition is an invaluable book for nonscientists as well as scientists with little background knowledge in gene cloning, providing a wealth of information for anyone wishing to gain proficiency in reading and speaking the language of gene cloning....
As motive force of processes, heat must be transferred from one fluid to other, task
that is performed by means of heat exchangers. From this point of view, heat
exchangers represent an important element of thermal facilities that has substantially
contributed to technical development of the society. Today it is impossible to imagine
any branch of process engineering and energy technology without involvement of heat
exchangers. Advanced models of these apparatus were proposed in the middle of the
18th century, while theoretical backgrounds have been completed a century later....
Part III: Theoretical background 12 Plant nutrients
The elements that plants need to survive are called nutrients. Nutrients are usually adsorbed from the soil solution in the form of ions. Ions are dissolved salts (nutritive salts) that have an electrical charge.
As WLANs (Wireless Local Area Networks) become increasingly common, it's becoming vital to be able to test them for proper performance and to optimize their operation. This book, written by a member of the IEEE committee that develops WLAN standards, is the first book addressing that need. It covers test equipment and methods for the RF (wireless) and physical layers of WLAN, protocols, the application layer, and manufacturing testing.
A comprehensive introduction to the most popular class of neural network, the multilayer perceptron, showing how it can be used for system identification and control. The book provides readers with a sufficient theoretical background to understand the characteristics of different methods, and to be aware of the pit-falls so as to make the correct decisions in all situations. This is a very application-oriented text that gives detailed and pragmatic recommendations to guide users through the plethora of methods suggested in the literature.
The field of biochemistry is diverse and forms parts of diverse
fields including cell biology, molecular biology and medical sciences.
Biochemistry is the study of the molecules of life like
proteins, lipids, carbohydrates and nucleic acids. Studying the
structure, properties and reactions of these important molecules
would help in better understanding life as a whole. The practical
aspect along with the theoretical background would help
in better understanding these mechanisms. This book tries to
address and compile some of the routinely used protocols in biochemistry
for easy access.
This is the ninth book of examples from Probability Theory. The topic Stochastic Processes is so big
that I have chosen to split into two books. In the previous (eighth) book was treated examples of
Random Walk and Markov chains, where the latter is dealt with in a fairly large chapter. In this book
we give examples of Poisson processes, Birth and death processes, Queueing theory and other types
of stochastic processes.

Prior to construction of any structural system, an extensive engineering design and analysis process must be undertaken. During this process, many engineering assumptions are routinely used in the application of engineering principles and theories to practice.
This book is about how to construct and use computational models of specific
parts of the nervous system, such as a neuron, a part of a neuron or a
network of neurons. It is designed to be read by people from a wide range of
backgrounds from the biological, physical and computational sciences. The
word ‘model’ can mean different things in different disciplines, and even researchers
in the same field may disagree on the nuances of its meaning.
With the development of computing technologies, digital media security becomes an ever
increasing issue of daily life. As computer software and hardware evolves and as more
of it becomes accessible as an Internet application or service, information security has
gone from initially protecting digital images, into the area of multimedia. This area of
multimedia includes computer graphics, images, digital video and digital audio. As the
Internet expands, so does the significance of multimedia security.
One of the benefits of applying to clinical and counseling psychology programs is that
you earn the right to commiserate about it afterwards. It was a night of anecdotes
and complaints (while doing laundry) that led us to review our travails and compare
notes on the difficulties we each experienced during the admission process. We emerged
from three diverse backgrounds: one of us (T. J. M.) graduated from a large state university,
took time off, and then entered a doctoral program; one of us (M. A. S.
