Classical Mirror Symmetry (SpringerBriefs in Mathematical Physics)

This book furnishes a brief introduction to classical mirror symmetry, a term that denotes the process of computing Gromov–Witten invariants of a Calabi–Yau threefold by using the Picard–Fuchs differential equation of period integrals of its mirror Calabi–Yau threefold. The book concentrates on the best-known example, the quintic hypersurface in 4-dimensional projective

Statistical, Gradient, Block and Graft Copolymers by Controlled/Living Radical Polymerizations (Advances in Polymer Science)

The design and the realisation of well defined polymer architectures has become an important goal in macromolecular science. The prerequisite for achieving this goal is the availability of controlled polymerisation reactions. Living anionic polymerisation was the first reaction fulfilling these requirements. Cationic polymerisation only came into play when it was realised that it was possible t

Neonatal Advanced Practice Nursing: A Case-Based Learning Approach

This one-of-a-kind learning resource for neonatal nurse practitioner/clinical nurse specialist students, in both academic and clinical settings, uses complex case studies to reinforce the best practices in treating vulnerable neonatal patients. Based on applications and outcomes, the case study approach develops critical thinking and clinical decision making and fosters effective role transitio

The Mathematics of Shock Reflection-Diffraction and von Neumann's Conjectures (Annals of Mathematics Studies)

This book offers a survey of recent developments in the analysis of shock reflection-diffraction, a detailed presentation of original mathematical proofs of von Neumann's conjectures for potential flow, and a collection of related results and new techniques in the analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs), as well as a set of fundamental open problems for further development.

Introduction To Classical And Variational Partial Differential Equations

The book extensively introduces classical and variational partial differential equations (PDEs) to graduate and post-graduate students in Mathematics. The topics, even the most delicate, are presented in a detailed way. The book consists of two parts which focus on second order linear PDEs. Part I gives an overview of classical PDEs, that is, equations which admit strong solutions, verifying th

Aesthetics of Ugliness: A Critical Edition

In this key text in the history of art and aesthetics, Karl Rosenkranz shows ugliness to be the negation of beauty without being reducible to evil, materiality, or other negative terms used it's conventional condemnation. This insistence on the specificity of ugliness, and on its dynamic status as a process afflicting aesthetic canons, reflects Rosenkranz's interest in the metropolis -

Plant Biotechnology, Volume 2: Transgenics, Stress Management, and Biosafety Issues

This volume is the second of the new two-volume Plant Biotechnology set. This volume covers many recent advances in the development of transgenic plants that have revolutionized our concepts of sustainable food production, cost-effective alternative energy strategies, microbial biofertilizers and biopesticides, and disease diagnostics through plant biotechnology. With the advancements
