Math Everywhere: Deterministic and Stochastic Modelling in Biomedicine, Economics and Industry by G. Aletti
English | PDF | 2006 | 330 Pages | ISBN : 3540444459 | 13.4 MB

These proceedings report on the conference "Math Everywhere", celebrating the 60th birthday of the mathematician Vincenzo Capasso. The conference promoted ideas Capasso has pursued and shared the open atmosphere he is known for. Topic sections include: Deterministic and Stochastic Systems. Mathematical Problems in Biology, Medicine and Ecology. Mathematical Problems in Industry and Economics. The broad spectrum of contributions to this volume demonstrates the truth of its title: Math is Everywhere, indeed.

Aortic Aneurysms: Pathogenesis and Treatment by Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr
English | PDF | 2008 | 381 Pages | ISBN : 1603272038 | 8.1 MB

As life expectancy is extended, the incidence and occurrence of Aortic Aneurysms are becoming increasingly common. Until recently, the treatment of aortic disease was primarily surgical, carrying a high mortality rate among the high risk elderly population. In Aortic Aneurysms: Pathogenesis and Treatment, Gilbert R. Upchurch Jr., Enrique Criado, and a panel of distinguished physicians comprehensively assess the rapidly evolving field of aneurysm treatment, focusing on aneurysms of the descending thoracic and abdominal aorta.

Thyroid and Heart Failure: From Pathophysiology to Clinics by Giorgio Iervasi
English | PDF | 2009 | 264 Pages | ISBN : 8847011426 | 4.2 MB

Both thyroid dysfunction and heart failure show a high prevalence in the adult population. Frequently, in clinical practice, a multidisciplinary approach is useful to optimize the management of patients with these conditions. Although there is no doubt regarding the close link between cardiovascular pathophysiology and thyroid homeostasis, our understanding of this association is far from being exhaustive.

Atlas of Real Time 3D Transesophageal Echocardiography by Francesco F. Faletra
English | PDF | 2010 | 188 Pages | ISBN : 1849960828 | 16.2 MB

This atlas provides a comprehensive description of normal anatomy of the internal structures of the heart (natives valves, interatrial septum, left atrial appendage, left atrium etc..) as seen by this revolutionary ultrasound technique. Normal TEE cardiac structures are described and compared with the corresponding anatomical specimens focusing on the fundamental as well as the details of the cardiac structures, providing a detailed understanding of the anatomy that has not previously been possible with either real-time transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) or reconstructed 3D TEE imaging technology.

Cardiorenal Syndrome: Mechanisms, Risk and Treatment by Adel E. Berbari
English | PDF | 2010 | 396 Pages | ISBN : 884701462X | 3.6 MB

Chronic kidney disease with a worldwide prevalence of 10% in the general population is emerging as a major public health priority. Renal dysfunction is associated with a high risk for cardiovascular complications. The relationship between renal insufficiency and cardiovascular disease, termed the cardiorenal syndrome exists whether impairment of renal function is a consequence of primary renal parenchymal disease or primary heart disease.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome Handbook by Maria L. Bertolaccini
English | PDF | 2010 | 93 Pages | ISBN : 1846285224 | 3.8 MB

This book discusses the major clinical features of the antiphospholipid syndrome. It provides a quick, practical and reader-friendly reference for the different problems that might be encountered in clinical practice. Treatment is a major concern in an area where evidence-based medicine is sparse and there are chapters dedicated to diagnosis from a laboratory point of view. Further chapters focus on subjects including pregnancy management, arterial thrombosis and prognosis. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of this disease, the primary readership groups are general and internal medicine physicians and sub-specialties, including rheumatologists, hematologists, cardiovascular physicians, and obstetricians, among others.

Heterotopia and Heritage Preservation: The Heterotopic Tool as a Means of Heritage Assessment by Smaranda Spanu
English | PDF | 2020 | 490 Pages | ISBN : 3030182584 | 5.5 MB

This book approaches the field of built heritage and its practices by employing the concept of heterotopia, established by the French philosopher Michel Foucault. The fundamental understandings of heritage, its evolution and practices all reveal intrinsic heterotopic features (the mirror function, its utopic drive, and its enclave-like nature).

Digitisation and Precarisation: Redefining Work and Redefining Society by Vyacheslav Bobkov
English | PDF | 2019 | 216 Pages | ISBN : 3658263830 | 2.1 MB

Currently it is fashionable to talk about digitisation, robotisation, industry 4.0, but also about the gig economy, the Millenials, precarisation and the like. However, the relevant issues are too often taken in isolation, referring to an extrapolation of overcome structures. The present collection aims on moving further by qualifying some aspects, and also by approaching the topic from distinct perspectives in order to arrive at an assessment of emerging changes of the socio-economic formation.

Districts, Documentation, and Population in Rupert’s Land by Aaron James Henry
English | PDF | 2019 | 145 Pages | ISBN : 3030327299 | 2.2 MB

This book interrogates how districts were used in British North America to inspect, and document indigenous people by the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC). In particular, it examines how the HBC utilized districts to create a political geography that allowed for closer surveillance of indigenous people and stabilized debt. An initial examination of how the district was used to rework earlier 18th-century conducts of observation into the more ordered and spatially limited regime of inspection is undertaken, followed by an investigation of how the district became central to the HBC’s efforts to limit the movement of indigenous people, individualize hunters, and spur ‘industriousness’.

Imaging the ICU Patient by Florian Falter
English | PDF | 2014 | 409 Pages | ISBN : 0857297805 | 26.6 MB

The critical care unit is an intense clinical environment with huge responsibilities on the professionals caring for these patients. Imaging is a key source of diagnostic information, but the conditions in which diagnostic imaging has to be performed are often extremely challenging and significantly different to imaging in the non acute setting. Imaging the ICU Patient reviews imaging procedures on the ICU in a highly practical and memorable manner. Swift and efficient clinical decision-making is rewarded on the ICU and this book serves as a practical handbook.

Inductive Fuzzy Classification in Marketing Analytics by Michael Kaufmann
English | PDF | 2014 | 125 Pages | ISBN : 3319058606 | 3.3 MB

To enhance marketing analytics, approximate and inductive reasoning can be applied to handle uncertainty in individual marketing models. This book demonstrates the use of fuzzy logic for classification and segmentation in marketing campaigns. Based on practical experience as a data analyst and on theoretical studies as a researcher, the author explains fuzzy classification, inductive logic and the concept of likelihood and introduces a blend of Bayesian and Fuzzy Set approaches, allowing reasonings on fuzzy sets that are derived by inductive logic.
