  • Micro- and Nano-Transport of Biomolecules (en)
    Autor David Bakewell, ISBN 978-87-7681-513-4, 1. Edition, 96 Seiten,
    Vorwort
    The micro- and nano- transport of biomolecules is of interest to a wide range of scientific and engineering communities. Application areas include miniaturized technology that will support and advance key sectors, including healthcare, food provisioning, environment services, etc. This ebook is generally intended for undergraduate students from chemical, life and physical sciences wanting to find out about the basic properties of biomolecules and how they can be transported in liquids on the micro- to nano-scale. The e-book tends to be oriented towards engineering aspects, especially with the transport of biomolecules in micro-devices powered electrically. It is hoped it will also be useful for interdisciplinary researchers surveying the field of biomolecule transport.
    Much of the book can be read with no more than high school level of science and mathematics and selected areas that require engineering mathematics can be omitted if need be. Vector notation for example has been deliberately omitted until Chapter 4. At the same time the more mathematical sections in Chapter 4 are expected to be useful for researchers entering this area of science.

  • Kinetics for Bioscientist (en)
    Autor Peter Klappa, ISBN 978-87-7681-469-4, 1. Edition, 221 Seiten,
    Beschreibung
    This book starts off by discussing the basics of kinetics, using everyday examples. It then moves on to describing kinetics in mathematical terms. Special chapters in this book are dedicated to cases relevant for Bioscientists, e.g. zero, first and second order kinetics. In the last part of the book, the focus is on more complex applications of kinetics, e.g. steady-state reactions and the kinetics of equilibria. An important aspect is to provide relevant examples and model calculations. Every theoretical approach is underpinned by several model calculations of real-life examples.
    Vorwort
    In general, the subject of reaction kinetics includes analysis of how fast reactions occur, the predictions of concentrations of reactants and products and how reactions can be altered by changing conditions. The study of kinetics is fundamental in any modern Bioscience and Pharmacology degree programme worldwide, however, in my experience undergraduate students often find this topic rather difficult. Reasons for this are i) the subject requires some mathematical skills in the interpretation of data and solving of problems and ii) often kinetics is taught in a fairly conceptual style, which does not provide students with an understanding as to why and what they should learn. For example, the principles of reaction kinetics and the methodology to solve problems in this area are not restricted to chemical reactions, but can be transferred to population growth, predator-prey systems, physiology and toxicology. However, traditionally reaction kinetics is taught mainly with reference to chemical concepts, which leaves many students (Biochemistry, Biology, Forensic Biology, Biomedical Sciences, Pharmacy, Pharmacology, Forensic Sciences, etc.) unable to transfer their knowledge to the areas they are interested in.
    In addition to the question of relevance there is another very important issue often neglected by many textbooks, namely the way students learn. In my experience very often students acquire knowledge through ‘problem-centered’ learning. They use problem questions and model answers to understand underlying concepts. For many students, especially in the early stages of their academic careers, this approach is more natural than the ‘academic’ approach, which is focused on a theoretical conceptualization of a topic. Although it would not be possible to explain complex concepts like reaction kinetics without some theoretical discussion, this should be kept to a minimum with emphasis being placed on conveying concepts through problem-questions.
    Also, for many undergraduate students it is important to get the information required in an easy and effective way. In other words, students are usually not interested in reading a whole textbook to obtain the knowledge they require for the problem-solving test next week. What they are really interested in is to see, what they need to know in the test and how to get this knowledge in the most effective way. In my experience students want a very brief(!) summary of the most important equations and concepts (perhaps in form of a bullet point list) and how to apply them to a problem. Students also appreciate if this information is provided in a concise form as a separate section in such a way that it can be easily identified.
    Many textbooks are written in a very ‘academic’ manner, i.e. they often ignore the way undergraduate students learn. In this book I aimed to adopt a problem-centered approach by:
    1. Presenting reaction kinetics with relevance to biological problems in a student-centred language, which makes this book suitable for undergraduate students, without prior knowledge of the subject. 2. Focussing on problem solving and data analysis through worked examples and model calculations.
    The general concept of the book has been designed to make it useful for in-class teaching as well as self-study. The chapters of the book are arrange in so that they follow a logic flow, however, most chapters are self-contained and do not necessarily require knowledge from previous chapters.
    In this book I have tried to give as many life science-related examples as possible and although the general concepts of the problems are correct, often the parameters of reactions are fictional. For example, it is well known that HIV reverse transcriptase forms a dimer; however the rate constant of this process, as used in chapter 5, has been set more or less arbitrarily. This book is therefore NOT intended as a reference for accurate numbers, but should rather exemplify concepts of reaction kinetics in a Bioscience-context.
    I have also attempted to provide help with mathematical concepts and equations relevant to reaction kinetics. In my experience students often find the mathematical nature of data analysis and interpretation challenging – another reason why students might find reaction kinetics difficult. I therefore deliberately incorporated various mathematical concepts in this book, wherever it seemed reasonable from a pedagogical point of view. From many years of teaching experience I know that students very much appreciate this step-by-step approach when it comes to solving problem questions.

    The rationale, aim and purpose of this study guide
    The rationale for a study guide on how to read and interpret annual reports is that this is a skill that can prove valuable in many contexts, situations and job positions. Whether you are the decision maker in, or you are contributing to the decision of, selecting a business partner or a supplier or a client, you will find that being able to have an informed insight in the financial performance and position of these third parties that you are considering is rather useful. You can be a project manager, the responsible for a product line, a production manager, an independent consultant, and still be interested in making your opinion about the current solidity and future perspective of a business with which you are considering collaborating.
    This study guide is aimed at anyone, with no or basic accounting expertise and knowledge, interested in reading and making sense of corporate annual reports. Also readers who have been trained in bookkeeping might find this study guide useful.
    Whilst the purpose of the study guide is to guide the readers through the corporate document called ‘annual report’, for them to interpret its meaning, the readers will not learn how to prepare the annual report.
    Upon completing this study guide, the readers should be able to read and interpret any annual report based on International Accounting Standards and, even though they might still lack the full knowledge of unusual or very technical information, they should be able to make their own informed opinion about the financial performance, situation and perspective of the reporting entity that published that annual report.

    Autor Christopher Wood, ISBN 978-87-7681-545-5, 1. Edition, 36 Seiten
    Beschreibung
    The three-dimensional shape of a protein determines its function. The shape of proteins can change by small or large amounts; another term for shape is conformation.
    Molecular Conformations introduces the fundamental physical and biochemical concepts that determine the conformation of a protein. The book starts by describing how DNA is converted into proteins and then continues with those factors that influence conformational change in a protein. The book is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how proteins execute their biochemical functions.

    Vorwort
    This book is written primarily to engineering students in the fields of basic chemistry, environmental chemistry, food production, chemical and biochemical engineering who in the beginning of their university studies receive education in inorganic chemistry and applied chemistry in general.
    The aim of this book is to explain and clarify important terms and concepts which the students are supposed to be familiar with. The book can not replace existing educational textbooks but it gives a great supplement to the education within chemistry. Many smaller assignments and examples including solutions are given in the book.
    The book is divided into six chapters covering the introductory parts of the education within chemistry at universities and chemical engineering schools. One of the aims of this book is to lighten the shift from grammar school/high school/gymnasium to the university.
    We alone are responsible for any misprints or errors and we will be grateful to receive any critics and suggestions for improvement.

    Vorwort
    The ‘electronic book’ is a feature of this early 21st Century. I have been in academic life for several decades, and have I hope responded with flexibility to changes over that time. I have been using a word processor on a daily basis for twenty years and am deeply conscious of the advantages over even the most advanced typewriters. The first time I gave a presentation using Microsoft PowerPoint was in India about six years ago. I have with enthusiasm used PowerPoint for every invited talk or conference contribution I have given since. Such talks and contributions have been in countries including Australia, Bahrain, Trinidad and Tobago, Kuwait and Armenia.
    About a year ago I published, by invitation from Ventus, ‘Atmospheric Pollution’. This was my eighth book, and my first electronic one. Once it became available I was quite delighted with the result, and sent a link to it to friends and professional associates around the world. I used the book as the recommended text in an MSc course at Aberdeen and student response was very positive. I hasten to add that I do not believe that the positive response was due solely to the fact that the book, unlike a ‘conventional’ book, was available free of charge. University students are too shrewd and perceptive to extend their acceptance to something simply because it comes for nothing. Even so, the endeavours of Ventus Publishing and Boon Books in making quality texts available at no cost deserve support. I was therefore pleased to respond in the affirmative to an invitation to write a second book for Ventus. The result is this tome on the physical properties of hydrocarbons.
    I expect that this book will be of interest to students and professionals in chemical engineering, fuel technology and mechanical engineering. I have myself used bits of it, prior to publication, in the newly set up chemical engineering degree course at the University of Aberdeen. I shall be pleased to receive feedback from readers.

  • Electromagnetism for Electronic Engineers Examples (en)]
    Autor Richard Carter, ISBN 978-87-7681-557-8, 1. Edition, 156 Seiten,
    Beschreibung
    This is a companion volume to Electromagnetism for Electronic Engineers (3rd edn.) (Ventus, 2009). It contains the worked examples, together with worked solutions to the end of chapter examples, which featured in the previous edition of the book. I have discovered and corrected a number of mistakes in the previous edition.
    I hope that students will find these 88 worked examples helpful in illustrating how the fundamental laws of electromagnetism can be applied to a range of problems. I have maintained the emphasis on examples which may be of practical value and on the assumptions and approximations which are needed. In many cases the purpose of the calculations is to find the circuit properties of a component so that the link between the complementary circuit and field descriptions of a problem are illustrated.

    Vorwort
    Electronics is a science about the devices and processes that use electromagnetic energy conversion to transfer, process, and store energy, signals and data in energy, control, and computer systems. This science plays an important role in the world progress. Implementation of electronic devices in various spheres of human activity largely contributes to the successful development of complex scientific and technical problems, productivity increase of physical and mental labour, and production improvement in various forms of communications, automation, television, radiolocation, computer engineering, control systems, instrument engineering, as well as lighting equipment, wireless technology, and others. Contemporary electronics is under intense development, which is characterized by emergence of the new areas and creation the new directions in existing fields.
    The goal of this work is to introduce a reader to the basics of electronic engineering. The book is recommended for those who study electronics. Here, students may get their first knowledge of electronic concepts and basic components. Emphasis is on the devices used in day-to-day consumer electronic products. Therefore, semiconductor components diodes, transistors, and thyristors are discussed in the first step. Next, the most common electronic circuits, such as analogue, differential and operation amplifiers, suppliers and references, filters, math converters, pulsers, logical gates, etc. are covered.
    After this course, students can proceed to advanced topics in electronics. It is necessary to offer an insight into the general operation of loading as well as into the network distortions caused by variables, and possibilities for reducing these disturbances, partly in power electronics with different kinds of load. Such problems, as the design and methods for implementing digital equipment, Boolean algebra, digital arithmetic and codes, combinatorial and sequential circuits, network instruments, and computers are to be covered later. Modeling circuits and analysis tools should be a subject of interest for future engineers as well. Further, electronics concerns the theory of generalized energy transfer; control and protection of electronic converters; problems of electromagnetic compatibility; selection of electronic components; control algorithms, programs, and microprocessor control devices of electronic converters; cooling of devices; design of electronic converters.
    Clearly, in a wide coverage such, as presented in this book, deficiencies may be encountered. Thus, your commentary and criticisms are appreciated: valery.vodovozov@ttu.ee.
