Radar-based imaging of aircraft targets is a topic that continues to attract a lot of attention, particularly since these imaging methods have been recognized to be the foundation of any successful all-weather non-cooperative target identification technique. Traditional books in this area look at the topic from a radar engineering point of view. Consequently, the basic issues associated with model error and image interpretation are usually not addressed in any substantive fashion. Moreover, applied mathematicians frequently find it difficult to read the radar engineering literature because it is jargon-laden and device specific, meaning that the skills most applicable to the problem's solution are rarely applied. Enabling an understanding of the subject and its current mathematical research issues, Radar Imaging of Airborne Targets: A Primer for Applied Mathematicians and Physicists presents the issues and techniques associated with radar imaging from a mathematical point of view rather than from an instrumentation perspective. The book concentrates on scattering issues, the inverse scattering problem, and the approximations that are usually made by practical algorithm developers. The author also explains the consequences of these approximations to the resultant radar image and its interpretation, and examines methods for reducing model-based error.
As the prevalence of cancer in the population increases -- due to an aging populus and increased survivorship -- the need for nurses to recognize and apply the appropriate interventions when oncologic emergencies rise becomes even more important. The second edition of Understanding and Managing Oncologic Emergencies: A Resource for Nurses provides nurses and other healthcare providers with a comprehensive resource on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, assessment, and management of common oncologic emergencies.Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of this crucial resource continues to provide a definitive and practical one-stop guide to understanding and managing oncologic emergencies, with the nursing perspective in mind. In this new edition, you will find chapters on the most common oncologic emergencies including: Bleeding and thrombosis; Cardiac tamponade; Disseminated intravascular coagulation; Hypercalcemia of malignancy; Increased intracranial pressure; Infusion reactions; Malignant pleurel effusion; Sepsis and septic shock; Spinal cord compression; Superior vena cava syndrome; Syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion; and Tumor lysis syndrome. Each chapter focuses on the epidemiology of the oncologic emergency, includes details on the pathophysiologic mechanisms, clinical manifestations, patient assessments, diagnostic evaluations, and therapeutic management modalities. Whether you're caring for patients who been newly diagnosed with cancer, are in the process of being treated, or have completed treatment years ago, you'll want to access the updated information that you'll find in this second edition.
The core of the research reported in this study was a survey of men and women 55 years and older sampled from a comprehensive list of residents. The authors asked questions about social networks, control over household assets, household composition, life satisfaction, and subjective health, among other things. The social network questions had been used in an earlier study done in Kentucky. Nearly everything else had been developed for the Delhi study. The findings were similar to those in the earlier study: the size of people's networks does not decline materially until they are older (80 plus). Age itself did not seem that important, but health was crucial. Persons who reported they were healthy had larger networks. As one might expect, joint family life has great impact on the nature of social life among older people. This has to do with the big difference in the situation of men and women in India. In addition to being patrilineal kin groups, joint families are dominated by male economic interests. The males as a collective group inherit property. Women have much less control of household assets. This ethnographic fact appeared very clearly in the answers to questions about participation in household decision making. High involvement in decisions, which the authors construed as a measure of power, spilled over into other aspects of the social aging process. Persons who were powerful in their households tended to have large networks, better subjective health, and much higher life satisfaction. They also tended to be men. The women tended to have small networks, low life satisfaction, lower subjective health, and less power. These differences between men and women were all substantialand highly significant. Gender is an extraordinarily important factor in the outcomes of social aging processes in India.
What is the true story behind the fabled lost continent of Atlantis, and what power did the Atlanteans wield? When archaeologist Sofia Perez unearths the remains of an Atlantean city, she unwittingly gives the Dominion the power to remake the world after its own design. From the depths of the Caribbean to the streets of Paris, to Japanese islands and beyond, Join Dane and Bones on a race to stop the Dominion from unleashing its greatest threat yet in the thrilling adventure, Atlantis! "David Wood's Atlantis hits all the marks that a blockbuster should. With rapid-fire pacing, Wood gives you perhaps his greatest Dane and Bones adventure yet with a tale that spins and reels out of control with action. With elements of mystery, lost technology and a mythical city, this book reads like vintage Clive Cussler. His best yet!" Rick Jones, Author of The Crypts of Eden "Flooded with action!"
