'This is currently the best book covering the relationship between genome and computer architectures.' - JOHNATHAN BARTLETT, Author / Publisher / Speaker / Director of Technology ----- This book highlights the informational aspects of life that are generally overlooked or ignored in chemical and biological evolutionary scenarios. Each cell of an organism has millions of interacting computers reading and processing digital information, using digital programs and digital codes to communicate and translate information. Life is an intersection of physical science and information science. Both domains are critical for any life to exist, and each must be investigated using that domain's principles. Yet most scientists have been attempting to use physical science to explain life's information domain, a practice which has no scientific justification. -- As you can tell by the preceding words this research is a fascinating approach to the question of the origin of life. - (PUBLISHER) ----- 'Programming of Life is an excellent freshman level review of the formal programming, coding/decoding, integration, organization, Prescriptive Information (PI), memory, regulation and control required for a physical object to find itself 'alive.' DONALD E. JOHNSON is uniquely qualified to unpackage the strong parallels between everyday cybernetic design and engineering and the workings of the cell. I highly recommend this book.' -DAVID L. ABEL, Director, The Gene Emergence Project Department of ProtoBioCybernetics and ProtoBioSemiotics The Origin of Life Science Foundation, Inc. ----- (ABOUT THE AUTHOR:) DR. DON JOHNSON has earned Ph.D.s in both Computer & Information Sciences from the University of Minnesota and in Chemistry from Michigan State University. He was a senior research scientist for 10 years in pharmaceutical and medical / scientific instrument fields, served as president and technical expert in an independent computer consulting firm for many years, and taught for 20 years in universities in Wisconsin, Minnesota, California, and Europe. He now maintains scienceintegrity.net to expose unsubstantiated claims in science and has made presentations on most continents.

The first to address the solution of integral equations in both time and frequency domains Integral equations-based methods are among the most versatile techniques that one can use for the electromagnetic analysis of both conducting and piecewise homogeneous material bodies. They provide both efficient and accurate solutions for challenging problems, such as analysis of electrically large structures. Written by leading researchers in the field, Time and Frequency Domain Solutions of EM Problems Using Integral Equations and a Hybrid Methodology provides a compendium of solution techniques dealing with integral equations arising in electromagnetic field problems in the time and frequency domains. This book deals primarily with the novel solution of time domain integral equations. It documents the authors' unique space/time separation approach using associated Laguerre functions. A hybrid method based simultaneously on the time and frequency domains is presented to illustrate how to go beyond the limitations of the hardware resources of a computer to solve challenging electrically large electromagnetic field problems. User-friendly electromagnetic analysis computer codes are provided along with examples illustrating the various methodologies. The book also: * Provides a summary of the different types of spaces including the concept of mapping and projections leading to the formulation of operator equations * Discusses the solution of frequency domain integral equations using the popular triangular discretizations and the RWG basis functions * Describes how to solve time domain integral equations using the classic marching-on-in-time (MOT) and the new marching-on-in-degree (MOD) methodologies * Presents a new, improved version of the marching-on-in-degree (MOD) methodology * Presents a hybrid methodology by using early time and low frequency information to solve large problems no longer limited by the hardware resources of the computer With sample computer programs and examples, this book is ideal for graduate students and scientists in electrical engineering and computational electromagnetics who are looking to gain a basic understanding of the numerical solution of integral equations in frequency and time domains. A unique text designed to increase understanding of the content through hands-on material, Time and Frequency Domain Solutions of EM Problems Using Integral Equations and a Hybrid Methodology is useful for both research and teaching.

Detailed analyses of poverty and wellbeing in developing countries, based on household surveys, have been ongoing for more than three decades. The large majority of developing countries now regularly conduct a variety of household surveys, and the information base in developing countries with respect to poverty and wellbeing has improved dramatically. Nevertheless, appropriate measurement of poverty remains complex and controversial. This is particularly true in developing countries where (i) the stakes with respect to poverty reduction are high; (ii) the determinants of living standards are often volatile; and (iii) related information bases, while much improved, are often characterized by significant non-sample error. It also remains, to a surprisingly high degree, an activity undertaken by technical assistance personnel and consultants based in developed countries. This book seeks to enhance the transparency, replicability, and comparability of existing practice. In so doing, it also aims to significantly lower the barriers to entry to the conduct of rigorous poverty measurement and increase the participation of analysts from developing countries in their own poverty assessments. The book focuses on two domains: the measurement of absolute consumption poverty and a first order dominance approach to multidimensional welfare analysis. In each domain, it provides a series of flexible computer codes designed to facilitate analysis by allowing the analyst to start from a flexible and known base. The book volume covers the theoretical grounding for the code streams provided, a chapter on 'estimation in practice', a series of 11 case studies where the code streams are operationalized, as well as a synthesis, an extension to inequality, and a look forward.

The process of breaking up a physical domain into smaller sub-domains, known as meshing, facilitates the numerical solution of partial differential equations used to simulate physical systems. This monograph gives a detailed treatment of applications of geometric methods to advanced grid technology. It focuses on and describes a comprehensive approach based on the numerical solution of inverted Beltramian and diffusion equations with respect to monitor metrics for generating both structured and unstructured grids in domains and on surfaces. In this second edition the author takes a more detailed and practice-oriented approach towards explaining how to implement the method by: Employing geometric and numerical analyses of monitor metrics as the basis for developing efficient tools for controlling grid properties. Describing new grid generation codes based on finite differences for generating both structured and unstructured surface and domain grids. Providing examples of applications of the codes to the generation of adaptive, field-aligned, and balanced grids, to the solutions of CFD and magnetized plasmas problems. The book addresses both scientists and practitioners in applied mathematics and numerical solution of field problems.
