Summary

This volume reviews the published knowledge about bioactive composites, protein scaffolds and hydrogels. Chapters also detail the production parameters and clarify the evaluation protocol for analysis or testing and scaffolding biomaterials. The volume concludes with a summary of applications of porous scaffold in medicine. Each chapter links basic scientific and engineering concepts to practical applications for the benefit of the reader.The text offers a wealth of information that will be of use to all students, bioengineers, materials scientists, chemists and clinicians concerned with the properties, performance, and use of tissue engineering scaffolds — from research engineers faced with designing the biomaterials and techniques to physicians and surgeons charged with shepherding the use of the scaffolds into the applied clinical settings.

    Humans may have reached the top of the food chain, but the world is still teeming with apex predators who retain the advantage in their own environments, and sometimes venture into ours, especially when they have gained a taste for human blood. Survivors, hunters, and witnesses recall first-hand accounts of hair-raising, fatal encounters with massive and dangerous beasts of the wild, describing the often rapid and unstoppable series of events that result in devastation and serve to bolster the legends of the world’s flesh-hungry maneaters.Relentless wolves and rogue elephants, swarms of fire ants and vicious sharks, ruthless panthers, grizzly bears, crocodiles, and even human cannibals?all have taken their toll on unsuspecting travelers.

    Fully illustrated with color photography, this eBook collects Road & Track’s coverage of the acclaimed BMW M Series from 1985 to 2014.   Since it debuted the BMW E2 in 1972, the legendary German car brand has taken a balanced approach to its M series cars, turning already competitive models into well-rounded, capable performance machines. Year after year, BMW’s Motorsport division has set the standard for power, style, and overall excellence.   This eBook collects Road & Track’s BMW M car coverage, including features, reviews, comparison tests, and interviews on everything from the M3 and M5 to the short-lived M1 supercar, and even the recent M-badged SUVs. Taken together, the nearly thirty years of expert automotive writing presents a critical history of BMW’s design and engineering achievements.

    This book is the seventh volume of “The Living in Space Series”. Each volume focuses on one particular technology of living in space. In this book the focus is on spaceships used to access and travel in space. In my research I was pretty amazed at how many spaceships have been designed, the large number available in the current era, and that many more are already on the drawing boards. Some spaceships like the Space Shuttle seemed like a great idea back in the 1970s and 1980s. But due to the compromises in design were very expensive for each flight and kind of dangerous too. Even though the Space Shuttle was flown for over 30 years it was eventually cancelled because of cost issues. The newer transportation systems focus on lowering costs through reusability. This will lead to a much better long term paradigm for expanding people’s entry into space because of the lower costs reusability provides. I also needed to determine what types of ships to include in this book. What is a valid spaceship? My decision was to use the Von Karmen Line which says that a spaceship flown higher than 50 miles (80 km) has entered space. Using the Von Karmen Line includes one manned device—the X-15 experimental rocket plane as a spaceship although most people wouldn’t think so. Lastly, I’ve included some notional spaceship designs which might be used to travel to Mars or other bodies in the Solar System.

    This “lucid, masterfully written introduction to an often difficult subject . . . belongs on the bookshelf of every student of statistical physics” (Dr. Brian J. Albright, Applied Physics Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory). 
     
    This book provides an accessible introduction to stochastic processes in physics and describes the basic mathematical tools of the trade: probability, random walks, and Wiener and Ornstein-Uhlenbeck processes. With an emphasis on applications, it includes end-of-chapter problems.  
     
    Physicist and author Don S. Lemons builds on Paul Langevin’s seminal 1908 paper “On the Theory of Brownian Motion” and its explanations of classical uncertainty in natural phenomena. Following Langevin’s example, Lemons applies Newton’s second law to a “Brownian particle on which the total force included a random component.” This method builds on Newtonian dynamics and provides an accessible explanation to anyone approaching the subject for the first time.  
     
    This volume contains the complete text of Paul Langevin’s “On the Theory of Brownian Motion,” translated by Anthony Gythiel.
