PET-CT and PET-MRI in Oncology: A Practical Guide by Patrick Peller
English | PDF(Repost),EPUB | 2012 | 437 Pages | ISBN : 3642011381 | 38.97 MB

Over the past decade, PET-CT has achieved great success owing to its ability to simultaneously image structure and function, and show how the two are related. More recently, PET-MRI has also been developed, and it represents an exciting novel option that promises to have applications in oncology as well as neurology. The first part of this book discusses the basics of these dual-modality techniques, including the scanners themselves, radiotracers, scan performance, quantitation, and scan interpretation. As a result, the reader will learn how to perform the techniques to maximum benefit. The second part of the book then presents in detail the PET-CT and PET-MRI findings in cancers of the different body systems. The final two chapters address the use of PET/CT in radiotherapy planning and examine areas of controversy. The authors are world-renowned experts from North America, Europe, and Australia, and the lucid text is complemented by numerous high-quality illustrations.

L2-Gain and Passivity Techniques in Nonlinear Control, Third Edition (Repost)

L2-Gain and Passivity Techniques in Nonlinear Control, Third Edition by Arjan van der Schaft
English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 | 334 Pages | ISBN : 3319499912 | 10.23 MB

This standard text gives a unified treatment of passivity and L2-gain theory for nonlinear state space systems, preceded by a compact treatment of classical passivity and small-gain theorems for nonlinear input-output maps. The synthesis between passivity and L2-gain theory is provided by the theory of dissipative systems. Specifically, the small-gain and passivity theorems and their implications for nonlinear stability and stabilization are discussed from this standpoint. The connection between L2-gain and passivity via scattering is detailed.

Lifestyle Migration and Colonial Traces in Malaysia and Panama By Michaela Benson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 321 Pages | ISBN : 1137511575 | 8.26 MB

Leading scholars in the sociology of migration, Michaela Benson and Karen O’Reilly, re-theorise lifestyle migration through a sustained focus on postcolonialism at its intersections with neoliberalism. This book provides an in-depth analysis of the interplay of colonial traces and neoliberal presents, the relationship between residential tourism and economic development, and the governance and regulation of lifestyle migration.

Globalization and Health Inequities in Latin America

Globalization and Health Inequities in Latin America By Ligia Malagón de Salazar
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 315 Pages | ISBN : 3319672916 | 9.09 MB

This book critically analyses the influence of international policies and guidelines on the performance of interventions aimed at reducing health inequities in Latin America, with special emphasis on health promotion and health in all policies strategies. While the implementation of these interventions plays a key role in strengthening these countries’ capacity to respond to current and future challenges, the urgency and pressures of cooperation and funding agencies to show results consistent with their own agendas not only hampers this goal, but also makes the territory invisible, hiding the real problems faced by most Latin American countries, diminishing the richness of local knowledge production, and hindering the development of relevant proposals that consider the territory’s conditions and cultural identity.

Algorithmic and Experimental Methods in Algebra, Geometry, and Number Theory By Gebhard Böckle
English | EPUB | 2017 | 763 Pages | ISBN : 3319705652 | 10.69 MB

This book presents state-of-the-art research and survey articles that highlight work done within the Priority Program SPP 1489 “Algorithmic and Experimental Methods in Algebra, Geometry and Number Theory”, which was established and generously supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG) from 2010 to 2016. The goal of the program was to substantially advance algorithmic and experimental methods in the aforementioned disciplines, to combine the different methods where necessary, and to apply them to central questions in theory and practice. Of particular concern was the further development of freely available open source computer algebra systems and their interaction in order to create powerful new computational tools that transcend the boundaries of the individual disciplines involved.
