Statistics in Theory and Practice
75,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Aimed at a diverse scientific audience, including physicists, astronomers, chemists, geologists, and economists, this book explains the theory underlying the classical statistical methods. Its level is between introductory "how to" texts and intimidating mathematical monographs. A reader without previous exposure to statistics will finish the book with a sound working knowledge of statistical methods, while a reader already familiar with the standard tests will come away with an understanding of their strengths, weaknesses, and domains of applicability. The mathematical level is that of an advanced undergraduate; for example, matrices and Fourier analysis are used where appropriate. Among the topics covered are common probability distributions; sampling and the distribution of sampling statistics; confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and the theory of tests; estimation (including maximum likelihood); goodness of fit (including c2 and Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests); and non-parametric and rank tests. There are nearly one hundred problems (with answers) designed to bring out points in the text and to cover topics slightly outside the main line of development.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book describes the interaction of living matter with photons, neutrons, charged particles, electrons and ions. The authors are specialists in the field of radiation protection. The book synthesizes many years of experiments with external radiation exposure in the fields of dosimetry and radiation shielding in medical, industrial and research fields. It presents the basic physical concepts including dosimetry and offers a number of tools to be used by students, engineers and technicians to assess the radiological risk and the means to avoid them by calculating the appropriate shields. The theory of radiation interaction in matter is presented together with empirical formulas and abacus. Numerous numerical applications are treated to illustrate the different topics. The state of the art in radiation protection and dosimetry is presented in detail, especially in the field of simulation codes for external exposure to radiation, medical projects and advanced research. Moreover, important data spread in different up to date references are presented in this book. The book deals also with accelerators, X-rays facilities, sealed sources, dosimetry, Monte Carlo simulation and radiation regulation. Each chapter is split in two parts depending on the level of details the readers want to focus on. The first part, accessible to a large public, provides a lot of simple examples to help understanding the physics concepts under radiation external exposure. The second part, called "Additional Information" is not mandatory; it aims on explaining topics more deeply, often using mathematical formulations. The book treats fundamental radiometric and dosimetric quantities to describe the interaction in materials under the aspects of absorbed dose processes in tissues. Definitions and applications on limited and operational radiation protection quantities are given. An important aspect are practical engineering tools in industrial, medical and research domains. Source characterization and shielding design are addressed. Also more "exotic" topics, such as ultra intense laser and new generation accelerators, are treated. The state of the art is presented to help the reader to work with the book in a self-consistent way. The basic knowledge necessary to apply Monte Carlo methods in the field of radiation protection and dosimetry for external radiation exposure is provided. Coverage of topics such as variance reduction, pseudo-random number generation and statistic estimators make the book useful even to experienced Monte Carlo practitioners. Solved problems help the reader to understand the Monte Carlo process. The book is meant to be used by researchers, engineers and medical physicist. It is also valuable to technicians and students.

Agriculture is a backbone of India. It is one of the major domains which decides the economy of the nation. During the yielding time pest is the major parameter which affects the product. In India almost every farmer uses chemical pesticides to protect his crops from diseases and pests. Due to pests and diseases attacks on the crops, farmer have to take economic losses every year. Pesticides exposure can cause neurological health effects like hypersensitivity, cancer and asthma. Because of all issue discussed above, it is very important to spread awareness about pest management to farmers. This paper would discuss and give a solution to the exiting shortcoming in the pesticide management during the cultivation process. This work focus on the development of identifying pests on the agriculture environment to get a good efficiency of organic food.

Global Governance of Intellectual Property in t...
123,55 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book analyses the governance foundations of innovation, brands, inventions, secrets and expression, which are the keys to a century based on knowledge. They are reflected in legal rights that have been fermenting over centuries of national policy deliberations on intellectual property rights, constantly in flux in the face of new advances in science, but overall a trend towards greater protectionism. As countries are challenged by the strictures of international agreements, often extorted through imbalanced power relationships, they seek their own national means for beneficial differentiation from the new global norms, whilst complying with international obligations. This book deals with the outcomes of regional governance of intellectual property, which often creates ripples in the search for harmony in the laws that form the basis for the future of intellectual property. The work has contributions that come from developing and developed nations, showing a common theme of the struggle to find the balance in an area of law that often does not provide clearcut solutions to real world environments.There are many intellectual property struggles illustrated in this work: patent at the boundaries of nature and invention, the need for drug development, which is driven by profit based on the patent monopoly, copyright, the expression of original thought, seeking to maximise exposure facilitated by the internet, but a system that facilitates rampant copying, trade marks, supporting company branding, seeks to exploit global branding through naming domains names, and other areas concomitant to the globalisation of intellectual property governance, such as foreign direct investment. This book holds up a mirror to the issues of world governance of intellectual property rights in this century, asking whether the direction we are currently following is in the best interest of global citizens, and showing the divergence that constraints are stimulating on a national level.

Primary Prevention of Dementia:Knowledge, Attit...
38,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book was aimed at identifying effective primary preventive measures for dementia. Through an in-depth literature review domains of knowledge, attitude and healthy lifestyle practices (KAPs) related to prevention of dementia were examined. The KAPs findings were compared with the KAPs findings in the community. Some protective risk factors identified for dementia include certain medications, control of certain medical and psychosocial problems, judicious alcohol and coffee intake, regular physical and mentally stimulating activities, intake of enough water, balanced diets, fruits and vegetables, and avoidance of head injuries, illicit substances and toxins. Some negative risk factors identified for dementia include exposure to excessive mental stress, alcohol and coffee intake, and certain medical problems. Upon scientific analysis and comparison of the findings in the literature with the findings in the community the author identified healthy lifestyle knowledge as the most significant factor for prevention of dementia. Some community-based intervention programs and primary preventive strategies for dementia are also covered.

Women in traditionally masculine domains must deal with the shadow of doubt that accompanies stereotypes alleging a sex-based inability. The threat of being personally reduced to one of these gender stereotypes can evoke a disruptive state among women-a situational predicament called "stereotype threat." The risk of experiencing stereotype threat in traditionally masculine fields (e.g., mathematics, leadership positions) can lead women to avoid those stereotype-relevant domains in an attempt to cope with the threat they impose. Employing gender stereotypic TV commercials to elicit the female stereotype, research discussed in this book examines the insidious effects that stereotype threat can have on women's educational and vocational aspirations. A series of 5 studies confirm that exposure to stereotypic commercials persuades women to withdraw from domains that evoke stereotype threat while seeking those that are immune to stereotype threat. Methods for eliminating these noxious effects are discussed, which makes this book indispensable for academia (e.g., psychology, education, business) and for all women who want to thrive in traditionally masculine domains.
