  • Inverse Modeling by Gen Nakamura
    Inverse Modeling (English, Hardback) Gen Nakamura, Roland Potthast

    The book provides a concise introduction into inverse modeling, i.e the theory and methods of inverse problems and data assimilation. Inverse problems are widely spread today in science and technology, ranging from data analysis and modeling in science to remote sensing in industrial and natural applications as well as medical imaging and non-destructive testing. Further applications come from the data assimilation task, i.e. the use of inverse methods to control dynamical systems and provide initial states for forecasting, which is of central importance in weather and climate science and an emerging technique in neuroscience and medicine.

  • Evolutionary Dynamics by Hugo van den Berg
    Evolutionary Dynamics (English, Hardback) Hugo van den Berg

    Written for researchers and postgraduate students with a background in physics or applied mathematics and a desire to apply their skills to problems in the life sciences, this beautifully illustrated and stimulating book develops an understanding of the gene-to-trait problem in the context of evolutionary dynamics, from the modern perspective of integrative biology. The gene-to-trait problem resides at the heart of a great many questions in biology. The author presents both elementary and advanced material in a way that brings out how this gene-to-trait problem is treated in the contexts of bioinformatics and evolutionary dynamics. Key ideas and techniques that underlie some of the most-used bioinformatics methods are discussed in an integrative context and a wide range of examples of mathematical models of living things is developed in an evolutionary framework.

  • Bias in Science and Communication by Dr Matthew Welsh
    Bias in Science and Communication (English, Hardback) Dr Matthew Welsh

    Bias is a natural outcome of our thinking patterns. The nature of our cognitive processes leads to inherent limitations, resulting in predictable biases in both our own judgements and the interpretation of our communications by the public, by policymakers and even other scientists. This book will introduce the concept of biases arising from cognitive limitations and tendencies with a focus of the implications of this for scientists in particular. It begins with an initial quiz designed to demonstrate key biases ? allowing readers to look back at the responses that they provided prior to reading about specific biases and thus see, without the impact of hindsight bias, whether they were susceptible to the effects.

  • Entrepreneurship for Creative Scientists by Dawood Parker
    Entrepreneurship for Creative Scientists (English, Hardback) Dawood Parker, Dr Surya Raghu

    Through patenting and commercialization scientists today can develop their work beyond a publication in a learned journal. Indeed, universities and governments are encouraging today's scientists and engineers to break their fruits of their research out of the laboratory and into the commercial world. However, doing so is complicated and can be daunting for those more used to a research seminar than a board room. This book, written by experienced scientists and entrepreneurs, deals essentially with businesses started by scientists and based on innovation and sets out to clarify for scientists and engineers the steps necessary to take an idea along the path to commercialization and maximise the potential for success, regardless of the path taken.

  • Advanced Secure Optical Image Processing for Communications by Professor Ayman Al Falou
    Advanced Secure Optical Image Processing for Communications (English, Hardback) Professor Ayman Al Falou

    New image processing tools and data-processing network systems have considerably increased the volume of transmitted information such as 2D and 3D images with high resolution. Thus, more complex networks and long processing times become necessary, and high image quality and transmission speeds are requested for an increasing number of applications. To satisfy these two requests, several either numerical or optical solutions were offered separately. This book explores both alternatives and describes research works that are converging towards optical/numerical hybrid solutions for high volume signal and image processing and transmission. Without being limited to hybrid approaches, the latter are particularly investigated in this book in the purpose of combining the advantages of both techniques. Additionally, pure numerical or optical solutions are also considered since they emphasize the advantages of one of the two approaches separately.
