Circular Economy and Sustainable Development Enterprises By Jiansu Mao
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 310 Pages | ISBN : 9811085234 | 9.42 MB

This textbook systematically addresses why and how Circular Economy should be developed and practiced by employing a Discussion and Research (D&R) teaching method. This method allows us to show the whole process of academic research, from formulating the key questions, to methodology design, and ultimately to conclusions and applications. In addition, the suggested class discussions and group homework provide good opportunities for participant cooperation and exchange.

Earthquake Analysis and Design of Industrial Structures and Infra-structures by Indrajit Chowdhury
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 1066 Pages | ISBN : 3319908316 | 79.29 MB

Despite significant development in earthquake analysis and design in the last 50 years or more, different structures related to industry, infra structure and human habitats get destroyed with monotonic regularity under strong motion earthquake. Even the recent earthquake in Mexico in September 2017 killed a number of people and destroyed national assets amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars.

Multi-photon Quantum Secure Communication by Pramode K. Verma
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 226 Pages | ISBN : 9811086176 | 13.36 MB

This book explores alternative ways of accomplishing secure information transfer with incoherent multi-photon pulses in contrast to conventional Quantum Key Distribution techniques. Most of the techniques presented in this book do not need conventional encryption. Furthermore, the book presents a technique whereby any symmetric key can be securely transferred using the polarization channel of an optical fiber for conventional data encryption. The work presented in this book has largely been practically realized, albeit in a laboratory environment, to offer proof of concept rather than building a rugged instrument that can withstand the rigors of a commercial environment.

Das Gespinst der Digitalisierung: Menschheit im Umbruch – auf dem Weg zu einer neuen Weltanschauung by Ulrich Sendler
German | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 313 Pages | ISBN : 3658218967 | 4.84 MB

Übernehmen bald die Roboter? Hat die Menschheit noch eine Zukunft? Und was hat das mit der Ausbreitung des Populismus zu tun? Das Buch spannt einen Bogen von der Digitalisierung zu aktuellen gesellschaftspolitischen Umbrüchen. Übersichtlich strukturiert und leicht verständlich geschrieben, hilft das Buch Lesern, das Wesen der digitalen Transformation zu begreifen – unter anderem, indem es Parallelen zur industriellen Revolution aufzeigt. Für seine Analyse verknüpft der Autor die Digitalisierung mit politischen, historischen, wirtschaftlichen, soziologischen und philosophischen Fragestellungen.

Physics of Quantum Rings, Second Edition by Vladimir M. Fomin
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 600 Pages | ISBN : 3319951580 | 62.29 MB

This book, now in its second edition, introduces readers to quantum rings as a special class of modern high-tech material structures at the nanoscale. It deals, in particular, with their formation by means of molecular beam epitaxy and droplet epitaxy of semiconductors, and their topology-driven electronic, optical and magnetic properties. A highly complex theoretical model is developed to adequately represent the specific features of quantum rings.

Die fortschreitende Digitalisierung verändert unsere Kommunikation, unsere Bildung, unser Sozialleben, nicht zuletzt unsere Wahrnehmung von uns selbst. Wie wirken sich diese Veränderungen inzwischen und zukünftig auf Gesellschaft, Familie und den Einzelnen aus? In welcher Weise beeinflussen WhatsApp, Facebook & Co. den Umgang mit Partnern, Freunden, aber auch uns fremden Netzwerk-Usern? Beschneiden soziale Medien und Algorithmen unsere Autonomie und Mündigkeit; wenn ja - wie können wir uns schützen?

It describes biological data types and representations with examples for creating a workflow in bioinformation discovery. The concepts in knowledge discovery from data are illustrated using line diagrams. The principles and concepts in knowledge discovery are used for the development of prediction models for simulations of biological reactions and events. Advanced topics in molecular evolution and cellular & molecular biology are addressed using bioinformation gleaned through discovery. Each chapter contains approximately 10 exercises for practice. This will help students to expand their problem solving skills in Bioinformation Discovery. In this new edition, there are three new chapters covering single nucleotide polymorphism, genes, proteins and disease, and protein functions driven by surface electrostatics.
