Ecocriticism, Ecology, and the Cultures of Antiquity

Christopher Schliephake

Ecocriticism, Ecology, and the Cultures of Antiquity by Christopher SchliephakeBy focusing on ancient culture and its reception, this book fills integrates antiquity into our current ecocritical theory and practice to fill in a gap in our environmental debates. It aims at a re-evaluation of antiquity in the light of present-day environmental concerns and re-frames our contemporary outlook on the more-than-human world in the light of cultures far removed from our own.

Liquid-Solid Separators

Jean-Paul Duroudier

Liquid-Solid Separators by Jean-Paul Duroudier

Liquid-Solid Separators, part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering set, presents detailed information on the filtration parameters that are used to calculate and measure the properties of filters that separate a divided solid from a liquid. Well-known equations are used to describe the passing of a solution through a membrane, deducing the expression of membrane rejection for solutes.

Biological membranes are used as examples, and their ionic flows and involvement in reactions within the membrane are discussed. The author also provides information on the methods needed for understanding...

Fuzzy Differential Equations and Applications for Engineers and Scientists

S. Chakraverty & Smita Tapaswini & Diptiranjan Behera

Fuzzy Differential Equations and Applications for Engineers and Scientists by S. Chakraverty & Smita Tapaswini & Diptiranjan Behera

Differential equations play a vital role in the modeling of physical and engineering problems, such as those in solid and fluid mechanics, viscoelasticity, biology, physics, and many other areas. In general, the parameters, variables and initial conditions within a model are considered as being defined exactly. In reality there may be only vague, imprecise or incomplete information about the variables and parameters available. This can result from errors in measurement, observation, or experimental data; application of different operating conditions; or maintenance induced errors. To overcome...

Multi-State Survival Models for Interval-Censored Data

Ardo van den Hout

Multi-State Survival Models for Interval-Censored Data by Ardo van den Hout

Multi-State Survival Models for Interval-Censored Data introduces methods to describe stochastic processes that consist of transitions between states over time. It is targeted at researchers in medical statistics, epidemiology, demography, and social statistics. One of the applications in the book is a three-state process for dementia and survival in the older population. This process is described by an illness-death model with a dementia-free state, a dementia state, and a dead state. Statistical modelling of a multi-state process can investigate potential associations between the risk of moving...

Imperial Rome, Indian Ocean Regions and Muziris: New Perspectives on Maritime Trade

K. S. Mathew

Imperial Rome, Indian Ocean Regions and Muziris: New Perspectives on Maritime Trade by K. S. MathewThe battle of Actium waged in 31 BC and the annexation of Egypt in 30 BC to the Roman Empire opened up avenues for increased commercial contact between the Roman Empire, South Asia in general and India in particular and the port of Muziris was the premier trading post of India. In this volume, eminent international scholars from the USA, Switzerland, United Kingdom, France, Italy as well as India provide detailed analysis of maritime trade in the Indian Ocean region in the early historic period.

Syntax-Phonology Interface: Argumentation from Tone Sandhi in Chinese Dialects

Hongming Zhang

Syntax-Phonology Interface: Argumentation from Tone Sandhi in Chinese Dialects by Hongming Zhang

This book centers on theoretical issues of phonology-syntax interface based on tone sandhi in Chinese dialects. It uses patterns in tone sandhi to study how speech should be divided into domains of various sizes or levels.

Tone sandhi refers to tonal changes that occur to a sequence of adjacent syllables or words. The size of this sequence (or the domain) is determined by various factors, in particular the syntactic structure of the words and the original tones of the words. Chinese dialects offer a rich body of data on tone sandhi, and hence great evidence for examining the phonology-syntax...

How to Attract Investors: A Subjective Guide to the Mindset of Investors and their Requirements

Uffe Bundgaard-Jorgensen

How to Attract Investors: A Subjective Guide to the Mindset of Investors and their Requirements by Uffe Bundgaard-Jorgensen

Investors are often looked upon as one homogeneous group of people with money ready to invest; however, this group is very diverse. In some ways, investors are like car buyers who seek common denominators in a car, such as the engine, wheels, brakes and seats, but the car they end up buying depends on personal preferences, needs and the money available. For investors the common denominator is the good business case, the 'engine, wheels, brakes, seats' being a comprehensive business plan. However, which business case they will prefer in the end depends on their personal preference and financial...

Handbook of Carbohydrate-Modifying Biocatalysts by Peter Grunwald

This book provides an actual overview of the structure, function, and application of carbohydrate-modifying biocatalysts. Carbohydrates have been disregarded for a long time by the scientific community, mainly due to their complex structure. Meanwhile, the situation changed with increasing knowledge about the key role carbohydrates play in biological processes such as recognition, signal transduction, immune responses, and others. An outcome of research activities in glycoscience is the development of several new pharmaceuticals against serious diseases such as malaria, cancer, and various storage...

Ragamuffin Man: The World of Syd Fischer

David Salter

Ragamuffin Man: The World of Syd Fischer by David SalterYou either lie down and die, or you fight.

In 1938 a knockabout 11-year-old kid from Marrickville, Sydney, is suddenly confronted by mortality. His mother dies. His father has little time for him and at 14 he leaves school to learn a trade.

In 2016 that same boy is a multi-millionaire. He owns - and runs - the Australian Development Corporation, Sydney City Marine, a host of associated companies and countless office and housing blocks. He is also one of the world's most successful sailors, having won Sydney-Hobart races in his Ragamuffin yachts and competed eight times for Australia in the Admiral's...
