Robotics, 2nd Edition – Matjaž Mihelj

It is perhaps difficult to agree on what a robot is, but most people working in robotics would probably quote the “Father of Robotics”, Joseph F. Engelberger (1925-2015), a pioneer in industrial robotics, stating “I can’t define a robot, but I know one when I see one”. The word robot does not originate from a scientific or engineering vocabulary, but was first used in the Czech drama “R.U.R.” (Rossum’s Universal Robots) by Karel Capek, that…

Pregnancy Fitness – Julia Di Paolo

When a woman becomes a mother, it is a transformative time in her life. It is a time when with significant changes occur in the mind, body, and spirit. Cultures around the world honor this time with various traditions that often focus on rest, nourishment, and support for the new mother so she can transition to her new role with ease. In Japan it is customary for the new mother to rest for three weeks…

Optically Induced Nanostructures: Biomedical and Technical Applications – Karsten König

Nanostructuring of materials is a task at the heart of many modern disciplines in mechanical engineering, as well as optics, electronics, and the life sciences. This book includes an introduction to the relevant nonlinear optical processes associated with very short laser pulses for the generation of structures far below the classical optical diffraction limit of about 200 nanometers as well as coverage of state-of-the-art technical and biomedical applications. These applications include silicon and glass wafer…

International Organization in the Anarchical Society – Tonny Brems Knudsen

The Institutional Structure of World Order This book has grown out of a long-standing ambition to give international organizations a proper place in the English School theory of international society and one that reflects their importance in contemporary interna­tional politics. As editors we were confident that the way to do it would be to relate international organizations more carefully to processes of continuity and change in the fundamental institutions of international society, including sovereignty, diplomacy,…

Inherited Metabolic Diseases: A Clinical Approach, 2nd Edition – Georg F. Hoffmann

Inborn errors of metabolism are often felt to be inaccessible as a huge group of numerous genetic defects that are understood only by the specialist. Many textbooks leave the uninitiated with complicated biochemical pathways, strange disease names, and the impossible task of reading through large lists of single enzyme and protein defects. This is unfortunate as metabolic disor­ders can be understood and remembered in clinically distinct disease groups that require similar investigations and therapeutic strategies….

Industrial Chemistry: For Advanced Students – Mark A. Benvenuto

The production of tens of thousands of commodity chemicals today yields a quality of life for many people which has never before been experienced throughout the rise and fall of all civilizations. Because of the ability to refine and use numerous chemicals from crude oil, we have a wide variety of long-lasting, durable plastics that help enable everything from modern medicine to long-distance food transport. This same source provides us with huge quantities of several…

Geometric Algebra Applications Vol. I: Computer Vision, Graphics and Neurocomputing – Eduardo Bayro-Corrochano

This book presents the theory and applications of an advanced mathematical lan­guage called geometric algebra that greatly helps to express the ideas and concepts and to develop algorithms in the broad domain of robot physics. In the history of science, without essential mathematical concepts, theories would have not been developed at all. We can observe that in various periods of the history of mathematics and physics, certain stagnation occurred; from time to time, thanks to…

Geometric Algebra and Applications to Physics – Venzo de Sabbata

Bringing geometric algebra to the mainstream of physics pedagogy, Geometric Algebra and Applications to Physics not only presents geometric algebra as a discipline within mathematical physics, but the book also shows how geometric algebra can be applied to numerous fundamental problems in physics, especially in experimental situations. This reference begins with several chapters that present the mathematical fundamentals, including the essential features of postulates and their underlying framework; bivectors, multivectors, and their operators; spinor and…

Forensic Pathology Review: Questions and Answers – John M. Wayne

This book is an invaluable tool for studying and reviewing key concepts in forensic pathology. Written in a question-and-answer format, this accessible guide tests readers’ knowledge of manner of death, patterns of injury, lab data interpretation, postmortem radiography and imaging, and much more. Over 300 questions, more than half with visual examples, cover both common and more unusual examples of forensic pathology seen in practice. A great resource for preparing for examinations including the American…

Exercise in Action: CORE – Hollis Lance Liebman

An instant visual guide to developing a strong core Whether in movies, print, or sporting events, many forms of media have advertised, flaunted, and celebrated flat or visible abdominals and a strong core as desired perfection for decades (think of the Charles Atlas ads from the 1950s and beyond: “Do Bullies Kick Sand in Your Face?”). But athletes the world over train their core muscles not for appearance, but for performance. Motion, power, stability, and…
