Modern Phylogenetic Comparative Methods and Their Application in Evolutionary Biology: Concepts and Practice

Modern Phylogenetic Comparative Methods and Their Application in Evolutionary Biology: Concepts and Practice by László Zsolt Garamszegi
English | PDF,EPUB | 2014 (corrected publication 2018) | 555 Pages | ISBN : 3662435497 | 17.03 MB

Phylogenetic comparative approaches are powerful analytical tools for making evolutionary inferences from interspecific data and phylogenies. The phylogenetic toolkit available to evolutionary biologists is currently growing at an incredible speed, but most methodological papers are published in the specialized statistical literature and many are incomprehensible for the user community.

The Therapeutic Use of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) in Medicine

The Therapeutic Use of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) in Medicine by Richard Eugene Frye
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 392 Pages | ISBN : 9811053103 | 13.16 MB

Focusing on the practical use of N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) in medicine, this book provides a comprehensive review of the basic biological and clinical studies documenting its benefits in treating medical disease. NAC is perhaps best known as an antidote for acetaminophen, but its therapeutic effect in a wide range of medical diseases has recently been realized. In addition to its well recognized use in radiological contrast prophylaxis for renal disease and pulmonary disorders, studies have suggested significant promise in psychiatric and neurological disorders such as addiction, Alzheimer’s disease, ataxia, autism, bipolar disorder, depression, epilepsy, neuropathy, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, traumatic brain injury and trichotillomania in addition to promising studies in audiology, cardiology, exercise physiology, gastroenterology, hematology, infectious disease, infertility and ophthalmology.

Test Generation of Crosstalk Delay Faults in VLSI Circuits

Test Generation of Crosstalk Delay Faults in VLSI Circuits by S. Jayanthy
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 161 Pages | ISBN : 9811324921 | 4.33 MB

This book describes a variety of test generation algorithms for testing crosstalk delay faults in VLSI circuits. It introduces readers to the various crosstalk effects and describes both deterministic and simulation-based methods for testing crosstalk delay faults. The book begins with a focus on currently available crosstalk delay models, test generation algorithms for delay faults and crosstalk delay faults, before moving on to deterministic algorithms and simulation-based algorithms used to test crosstalk delay faults. Given its depth of coverage, the book will be of interest to design engineers and researchers in the field of VLSI Testing.

Spin-Polarized Two-Electron Spectroscopy of Surfaces

Spin-Polarized Two-Electron Spectroscopy of Surfaces by Sergey Samarin
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 241 Pages | ISBN : 3030006557 | 20.29 MB

This book presents developments of techniques for detection and analysis of two electrons resulting from the interaction of a single incident electron with a solid surface. Spin dependence in scattering of spin-polarized electrons from magnetic and non-magnetic surfaces is governed by exchange and spin-orbit effects. The effects of spin and angular electron momentum are shown through symmetry of experimental geometries: (i) normal and off normal electron incidence on a crystal surface, (ii) spin polarization directions within mirror planes of the surface, and (iii) rotation and interchange of detectors with respect to the surface normal.

Denoising of Photographic Images and Video: Fundamentals, Open Challenges and New Trends

Denoising of Photographic Images and Video: Fundamentals, Open Challenges and New Trends by Marcelo Bertalmío
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 339 Pages | ISBN : 3319960288 | 33.79 MB

This unique text/reference presents a detailed review of noise removal for photographs and video. An international selection of expert contributors provide their insights into the fundamental challenges that remain in the field of denoising, examining how to properly model noise in real scenarios, how to tailor denoising algorithms to these models, and how to evaluate the results in a way that is consistent with perceived image quality. The book offers comprehensive coverage from problem formulation to the evaluation of denoising methods, from historical perspectives to state-of-the-art algorithms, and from fast real-time techniques that can be implemented in-camera to powerful and computationally intensive methods for off-line processing.
