Anthropology

DELIGE

Anthropology of the Family and

Kinship, 2nd ed.

ROBERT DELIGE, Professor of Anthropology, University

of Louvain-la-Neuve. He is a member of the Royal

Academy of Belgium.

From the Greek Kings to the Indian Brahman Priests,

the social behaviour and the continuity of human

clans have always been a subject of erudition for the

researchers; as the societies are evolving and so are

our families!

This book, which is the English translation of original

French version, unearths the origin, behaviour, and

the physical, social, and cultural development of

humans since the evolution of the society. It also

discusses the Morgans theory of evolution and

marriage along with the concepts of polygamy and

matrifocalization. The book elaborates on some of the

bizarre practices, such as Nair marriage practiced in

South of India (Kerala), and suggests ways to

reconsider the customs as per the modern norms.

The book also educates on the anthropological

findings of Malinowski, Murdock, Levi-Strauss and

Evans-Pitchard. Besides, it explains kinship as one of

the most basic principles for organizing individuals

into social groups, roles, categories, and genealogy.

This book is specifically intended for the

undergraduate and postgraduate students of

Anthropology and Social Sciences.

This book presents a detailed account of the

morphological features of the primates and, in the

process, it provides a clear exposition of the story of

human evolution. It discusses the theories of

biological evolution, the origin of the primates, the

morphology of the living primates, the social

behaviour of the nonhuman primates, and the

phylogenetic relationship between the large apes and

man on the basis of immunological and molecular

analyses.

The text focuses on the Miocene hominoids and their

role in the subsequent developments of the

hominids. It discusses three theoriesthe Single

Lineage Theory, the Double Lineage Theory, and the

Triple Lineage Theorydeveloped through the study

of the anatomical features of the australopithecine

fossils found mainly in South and East Africa. The

text also gives up-to-date information on the recent

discoveries of several hominid species.

The emergence of Homo erectus from one of the

australopithecines, its cultural attainments, and the

gradual transition to modern man are described in

the text. The doubts about the phylogenetic lineage

of the Neanderthals and the emergence of the early

Biotechnology for Waste and

Wastewater Treatment

NICHOLAS P. CHEREMISINOFF, a chemical engineer by

trade, has over 20 years of industry and applied

research experience in the field of environmental

control and industrial waste management.

Biological treatment, or biotechnology, is an

expanding field which has shown success in

remediation of industrial and municipal waste

problems. Industrial waste problems, especially those

involving hazardous waste, are an ongoing concern

since they pose a serious hazard to human health or

living organisms. The range of hazardous wastes is

large and their effects diverse. There are numerous

instances of mishaps all over the world. During the

last few years, there has been a worldwide move to

remedy these problems.

This book chiefly examines the practices employed

for biological treatment of waste/wastewater and

hazardous wastes. The technologies described involve

conventional treatment processes, their variations as

well as recent research. A promising new technique is

in the field of in-situ bioreclamation of contaminated

groundwater for cleaning up aquifers contaminated

with organic pollutants, such as chlorinated solvents,

petroleum products and pesticides. This particular en-

vironmental problem, being one of the most critical

of recent times is dealt with in a separate chapter.

The book is intended for a wide range of audience.

It will be useful to students and academia of civil/

chemical/environmental/public health engineering,

environmental sciences and biotechnology, as well as

to professionals, researchers, environmental specia-

lists, and administrators working in the field of

pollution control. Industrialists wishing to seek an

overview of the field for control of contaminants and

treatment of wastes will also benefit immensely from

Engineering Introduction to

Biotechnology, An

J. PATRICK FITCH.

There are many ways to define biotechnology.

Sometimes biotechnology is considered to be the use

of engineering principles in biology. In this book,

biotechnology is any technique, technology or appli-

cation that depends on or benefits from information

obtained through the ability to extract, copy, modify

or reintroduce the nucleic acids of an organism.

An Engineering Introduction to Biotechnology is an

insightful text for technical professionals. It is aimed

at creating an opportunity for engineers, physical

scientists, technical managers and marketers to

determine if their technologies and organizations

have relevant application in the life sciences. The

author has more than a decade of experience in this

growing field, primarily as a division leader at

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, where his

staff has conducted investigations in genomics, bio-

engineering, and related engineering research areas.

The book caters to the needs of the non-specialists

wanting to know about biotechnology by introducing

the basic concepts of biology, emphasizing omic or

whole mass approaches, describing large-scale

applications such as DNA sequencing, and demons-

trating technical successes with a few case studies of

bioinstrumentation.

Introduction to Molecular Biology

LAWRENCE E. HUNTER, a founder of the International

Society for Computational Biology, is Director of the

Computational Bioscience Program and of the Center

for Computational Pharmacology at the University of

Colorado School of Medicine.

Becoming conversant with the intricacies of

molecular biology and its extensive technical

vocabulary can be a challenge, though, as

introductory materials often seems more like a barrier

than an invitation to the study of life. This text

offers a concise and accessible introduction to

molecular biology, requiring no previous background

in science; it covers the basics in all aspects of

molecular biology, from biochemistry and evolution

to molecular medicine and biotechnology.

A reader who has mastered the information in The

Processes of Life is ready to move on to more

complex material in almost any area of contemporary

biology.

The Processes of Life is an excellent introduction

to molecular biology. By deconstructing an

exceedingly complicated body of information into a

set of core principles, Hunter provides the reader

with a framework for grasping the strengths and

challenges of modern biology... this books clarity

and frankness make it an invaluable resource for any

person, from any profession, seeking an introduction

to molecular biology.

SCHNEIDER & SAGAN

Into The Cool: Energy Flow,

Thermodynamics, and Life

ERIC D. SCHNEIDERof National Oceanic and

Atmospheric Administration; National Marine Water

Quality Laboratory.

DORION SAGANcoauthor of Microcosmos and What

Is Life? Science writer to New York Times, Natural

History, and Wired.

Into the Cool is a dazzling exposition of an idea:

that life is fundamentally not a noun, or a thing, but

a verb. Building upon the beautiful subtleties of the

Second Law of Thermodynamics, Eric Schneider and

Dorion Sagan take us on a tour de force through

biology, touching upon the origin of life, sex,

evolution, ecology, and even economics. Along the

way, they dethrone the idea that the gene is the

central actor in the drama of life and put the focus

properly back on the plotthe organized flows of

matter and energy that make life what it is. This

book is destined to be a classic.

STILING

Ecology: Theories and Applications,

4th ed.

PETER D. STILING, University of South Florida

at Tampa.

This substantially revised fourth edition brings to

fore the fascinating aspects of ecology. As, an

understanding of ecological principles is so essential

for students as well as environmental scientists, this

book provides a conceptual framework of ecology on

which environmental science is based. A knowledge

of such concepts enables one to take conservation

measures and make attempts to restore the planet

after the ravages of pollution.

This edition has undergone major changes. The

introduction has been completely rewritten to

introduce the students to the discipline of

evolutionary and behavioural ecology, population

ecology, community ecology, and ecosystems

ecologythe four pillars on which this book is built.

The population ecology section continues its focus on

factors affecting population growth; however, more

attention has been devoted to mutualism and

commensalism and to parasitism.

While the format of the fourth edition remains

similar to the third edition, with each chapter

starting on an explanation of a concept followed by

examples well illustrated with data, figures and

tables, the pedagogical emphasis has been refocussed.

For example, each chapter begins with a one-

sentence outline on what each section in the chapter

is about. Not only have a large number of diagrams

but also some of colour photographs been added to

trade, has over 20 years of industry and applied

research experience in the field of environmental

control and industrial waste management.

Biological treatment, or biotechnology, is an

expanding field which has shown success in

remediation of industrial and municipal waste

problems. Industrial waste problems, especially those

involving hazardous waste, are an ongoing concern

since they pose a serious hazard to human health or

living organisms. The range of hazardous wastes is

large and their effects diverse. There are numerous

instances of mishaps all over the world. During the

last few years, there has been a worldwide move to

remedy these problems.

This book chiefly examines the practices employed

for biological treatment of waste/wastewater and

hazardous wastes. The technologies described involve

conventional treatment processes, their variations as

well as recent research. A promising new technique is

in the field of in-situ bioreclamation of contaminated

groundwater for cleaning up aquifers contaminated

with organic pollutants, such as chlorinated solvents,

petroleum products and pesticides. This particular

environmental problem, being one of the most critical

of recent times is dealt with in a separate chapter.

The book is intended for a wide range of audience. It

will be useful to students and academia of civil/

chemical/environmental/public health engineering,

environmental sciences and biotechnology, as

Human vulnerability to natural disasters is an age-old

phenomenon. Besides natures wrath, human

interventions, too, have led to many calamities in

the recent past. Most of the worlds people live in

developing economies, as do most of the worlds

poor. They also face the most debilitating

consequences in the form of economic and social

disruption caused by disasters. Disaster mitigation

entails measures to reduce the physical, economic

and social vulnerability of a community to disasters.

It is still an untouched domain, suffering for want of

systematic and committed research and development

inputs. This collection of articles from several

contributors illuminates the pertinence of those

mitigation efforts that would prepare everyone

related with disaster management to comprehend and

approach the problem more holistically.

Disaster Risk Reduction in

South Asia

PARDEEP SAHNI, Professor of Public Administration at

the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU),

New Delhi.

MADHAVI MALALGODA ARIYABANDU, is the

Programme Manager, Disaster Mitigation, at the

Intermediate Technology Development Group (ITDG),

South Asia.

South Asia represents a region highly prone to

natural disasters. Disasters not only disrupt

the normal life of the affected communities and the

countries but also impede developmental efforts. By

and large, the approach of the major stakeholders

has been reactive rather than proactive. There

is indeed, a dire need for concerted and well-planned

efforts to achieve risk reduction through risk identifi-

cation, and sharing and transfer of information.

This edited volume explores how the risk of disasters

can be reduced by structural and non-structural mea-

sures with detailed, comprehensive and participatory

strategies. Twenty-seven contributors, both academi-

cians and practitioners, investigate the challenges

that the region faces and how changes can be effec-

ted at the community, society, government and non-

government levels to foster a culture of preparedness.

The overall focus is on risk reduction through

prevention, preparedness, mitigation, response,

recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction. Some case

studies from different settings dealing with various

disasters have also been included. Since disaster risk

reduction is an area of great concern and there is

absolute dearth of literature addressing this issue

with regard to South Asia, this volume will be of

immense utility and interest to government

departments, NGOs, insurance companies, univer-

sities, training institutions, professional associates,

media, general public, and students pursuing courses

in disaster management.

SRINIVASAN

Environmental Engineering

D. SRINIVASAN, has been a Professor with Department

of Chemical Engineering, Anna University, Chennai.

During the last two decades, the environmental

pollution regulations have undergone a vast change.

Attempts have been made to refine the conventional

technologies and to develop new technologies to

meet increasingly more stringent environmental

quality criteria. The challenge that one faces today is

to meet these stringent requirements in an environ-

mentally acceptable and cost effective manner.

The present book addresses the application of the

state-of-the-art technology to the solutions to

todays problems in industrial effluent pollution

control and environmental protection. The highlight

of this book is the inclusion of the salient features

of process modifications and other important

methods and techniques for the minimization of

wastes. The chapter on process modification for waste

minimization provides new technical features

and tools, latest technologies and techniques, and

other industrial operations. Besides, the text covers

the role of an environmental engineer in the

methodology for making pollution control decisions.

KEY FEATURES

Includes numerous self-explanatory tabular and

diagrammatic representations.

Presents pollution problems of few chemical and

processing industries.

Provides case studies on environmental pollution

problems and their prevention.

Analyzes thoroughly the planning and strategies of

environmental protection.

Designed as a textbook for the undergraduate

students of civil and chemical engineering, this book

will also be useful to the postgraduate students of

environmental science and engineering.

STILING

Ecology: Theories and Applications,

4th ed.

PETER D. STILING, University of South Florida at

Tampa.

This substantially revised fourth edition brings to

fore the fascinating aspects of ecology. As, an

understanding of ecological principles is so essential

for students as well as environmental scientists, this

book provides a conceptual framework of ecology on

which environmental science is based. A knowledge

of such concepts enables one to take conservation

measures and make attempts to restore the planet

after the ravages of pollution.

This edition has undergone major changes. The

introduction has been completely rewritten to

introduce the students to the discipline of

evolutionary and behavioural ecology, population

ecology, community ecology, and ecosystems

ecologythe four pillars on which this book is built.

The population ecology section continues its focus on

factors affecting population growth; however, more

attention has been devoted to mutualism and

commensalism and to parasitism.

While the format of the fourth edition remains

similar to the third edition, with each chapter

starting on an explanation of a concept followed

by examples well illustrated with data, figures and

tables, the pedagogical emphasis has been refocussed.

For example, each chapter begins with a one-

sentence outline on what each section in the chapter

is about. Not only have a large number of diagrams

but also some of colour photographs been added to

56 O PHI Learning CATALOGUE 2011

illustrate the point of discussion. Finally, a summary

at the end of each chapter recollect the major points

and should prove to be an invaluable study aid.

Students pursuing courses in environmental science

which is increasingly being taught in universities

across the country, and environmental scientists will

find this in-depth study highly useful.

TESTER, et al.

Sustainable Energy: Choosing

Among Options

JEFFERSON W. TESTER, ELISABETH M. DRAKE,

MICHAEL J. DRISCOLL, MICHAEL W. GOLAY, and

WILLIAM A. PETERS.

This book states that a better future might depend

on how individuals and institutions choose amongst

diverse and potentially contradictory technical,

sociological, geopolitical, and environmental options,

and how we set priorities for changing our present

courses. It clearly presents the trade-offs and

uncertainties inherent in evaluating and choosing

different energy options and provides a framework

for assessing policy solutions.

The text reviews the main energy sources of today

and tomorrow, including fossil fuels, nuclear power,

biomass, geothermal energy, hydropower, wind

energy, and solar energy, examining their techno-

logies, environmental impacts, and economics. It also

discusses about energy storage, transmission, and

distribution; about the electric power sector; trans-

portation, industrial energy usage, commercial and

residential buildings, and synergistic complex

systems.

It considers sustainable energy as a complex system

that, in the broader context, is subservient to the

super system of sustainable development then it

provides the prospects for sustainable energy having

practical global impacts.

The book is a valuable resource for all postgraduate

courses concerned with energy and its many

ramificationsas in engineering, public policy, and

environmental science.

Applied geography, a new frontier in geographic

discipline, distinguishes itself from other branches of

geography through the application of geographical

knowledge and its techniques in solving practical

problems of the land and the environment.

Explorations in Applied Geography is a felicitation

volume in honour of Professor L.R. Singh, Department

of Geography, University of Allahabad, who has

established his international credentials as a

leading exponent of Applied Geography. He considers

public policy to be one of the applications of applied

geographic principles, since many problems facing

society today have a geographical dimension. To

Professor L.R. Singh, Applied Geography is the

strategy of the trinity of men, space and resources

which need to be harmonized in advancing human

well-being.

This volume, contributed by geographers of eminence

within the country and from other parts of the

globe, focuses on the following thrust areas:

Natural and environmental hazards

Environmental change and management

Challenges of the human environment

Application of techniques of spatial analysis

In a nutshell, the book emphasizes the important

proactive role that the Applied Geography must play

in the formulation of public policies and programmes

for sustainable human development.

This comprehensive and classic compendium will

not only be useful to post-graduate students in

MATHUR

Elements of Geology

SHANKER M. MATHUR, formerly Director, Geological

Survey of India.

Aimed at B.Sc. students of geology, this introductory

text develops a basic understanding of the Earth as a

complex, evolving system of geological processes.

This book will also be of immense use to those

postgraduate students of geology who opt for this

stream after graduating in disciplines other than

geology.

Geology as a science has recently gained increasing

importance because of the current developments in

oil and mineral exploration and also because of

recent occurrences of earthquakes and tsunamis.

This book covers the entire spectrum of the geologic

concepts and relates them to the main processes of

geomorphology, earthquakes and volcanoes.

Important types of the three categories of rocks

igneous, sedimentary and metamorphicthat form

the crust of the Earth are described with their

characteristic mineralogy. Major structures that

are born of tectonic activities are discussed.

Palaeontological descriptions cover not only the plant

and animal groups but also other evidences of life in

the geological record and evolution. An important

feature of the text is that modern stratigraphic

methods of classification are outlined clearly, and the

latest geologic time scale with numerical ages as

approved in 2004 by the International Commission on

Stratigrahy of the International Union of Geological

Sciences is incorporated.

MATHUR

Guide to Field Geology

(Revised Edition)

SHANKER M. MATHUR, formerly Director, Geological

Survey of India.

Fieldwork in geology is an essential requirement of

undergraduate and postgraduate courses in geology.

Like any other course, Field Geology also requires

good course materials. Students of geology have been

deprived of the very basic knowledge and specialized

procedures of identification of geologic structures in

the absence of a suitable text on field training.

This book is an attempt to fill this lacuna. Written by

an eminent geologist with rich field experience, this

book in an easily readable style covers fieldwork

right from the preparation for the trip to mapping

and observation of various geological features, and

collection of materials for further study in the

laboratory. The text with its straightforward

presentation should prove to be a boon to students

of geology. It is primarily written to assist students

in field training.

ARNOLD

Ordinary Differential Equations

V.I. ARNOLD.

This work of translation of the classic Russian

textbook emphasizes a fresh modern approach to the

geometric qualitative theory of ordinary differential

equations. The subject matter of this book is domi-

nated by two central ideas and their ramifications:

the theorem on rectifiability of a vector field and

the theory of one-parameter groups of linear

transformations. While the author has taken the

liberty to omit some of the more specialized topics

usually included in books on ordinary differential

equations, the applications of these equations to

mechanics, on the contrary, have been considered in

more detail than the customary approach.

KEY FEATURES

Emphasizes the geometrical and intuitive aspects

while familiarizing the students with the concepts

of flows on manifolds and tangent bundles.

Presents a wealth of topics accompanied by many

thought-provoking examples, problems and figures.

Assumes the reader to possess a knowledge not

beyond the scope of the standard elementary

courses on analysis and linear algebra.

Physics and Mathematics)

SRIRANJAN BANERJI is presently working in Relativity

and Cosmology Research Centre, Department of Physics,

Jadavpur University.

ASIT BANERJEE, Professor, Department of Physics,

Jadavpur University.

The special theory of relativity, a monumental

achievement of scientific creativity, appeared in 1905

as a culmination of deep and careful analysis of

contradictions in old notions. The subject is now

taught in almost all universities and colleges in the

departments of physics and mathematics.

This text is designed to give students a solid

foundation in experimental background of the

theory, relativistic kinematics, relativistic dynamics,

and relativistic electrodynamics. What distinguishes

the text are some special features, not found in

other similar texts, that give a more intuitive

understanding of the subject. An important feature

of the text is its clarity and correctness with which

the principles, their relations, and their applications

are set forth.

The book will also be useful to B.Sc. (Hons.) students

in physics for a study of this topic as part of the

course in Modern Physics.

SPECIAL FEATURES

Discusses relativistic mechanics and electro-

dynamics of continuous media.

Presents the covariant four-dimensional formula-

tion of relativistic mechanics and electrodynamics.

Explains the Lagrangian and Hamiltonian

formulations in mechanics and electrodynamics.

Describes the Terrell effect (visual appearance of

moving objects) and the Thomas precession.

Includes a large number of solved problems.

University; formerly, with Universities of Illinois,

Chicago, Brasilia, and Laurentian University (Canada);

Visiting Professor: IPN (Mexico), University of Regina,

MacMaster University, and University of Ottawa (all

Canada), and Indian Statistical Institute, Calcutta.

Intended primarily for the graduate-level students

offering courses in statistics and mathematics (pure

and applied), this book skillfully combines measure

theory and probability. For, in contrast to many

books where probability theory is usually developed

after a thorough exposure to the theory and

techniques of measure and integration, this text

develops the Labesgue theory of measure and

integration, using probability theory as the

motivating force. What distinguishes the text is

the illustration of almost all theorems by examples

and applications. The only prerequisites for under-

standing the text are a sound knowledge of advanced

calculus and an elementary knowledge of probability

theory.

KEY FEATURES

Measure theory and probability are well integrated

for enhanced understanding of both these fields.

Exercises are given at the end of each chapter,

with solutions provided separately.

A section is devoted to large sample theory of

statistics, and another to large deviation theory (in

the Appendix).

metrically intuitive concepts are presented first.

The advanced level students will benefit from the

initial treatment of modules and the theory of the

Smith canonical form, exposed in the later sections

of Chapters 5, 6 and 7. In addition, a thorough

treatment of alternating forms of modules over com-

mutative rings is presented. The material on inner

products has been revised and expanded. This will

Fuzzy Sets and Fuzzy Logic:

Theory and Applications

GEORGE J. KLIR and BO YUAN.

This is the expanded version of the earlier highly

successful book, Fuzzy Sets, Uncertainty and

Information, reflecting the tremendous advances that

have taken place subsequently. The primary purpose

of this book is to provide the student with a

comprehensive coverage of theoretical foundations of

fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic, as well as a broad

overview of the increasingly important applications

of these novel areas of mathematics. No previous

knowledge of fuzzy sets or fuzzy logic is required.

Basic ideas such as neural networks, general

algorithms and rough sets are also explained.

Throughout the book, examples are used to illustrate

concepts, methods, and generic applications as they

are introduced. Extensive and carefully selected

bibliography, together with bibliographical notes at

the end of each chapter and a bibliographical index,

is an invaluable resource for further study of fuzzy

theory and applications. Each chapter is followed by

a set of exercises, which are intended to enhance an

understanding of the material presented in the

chapter.

It should be on the desk of everyone who is

interested in acquiring a solid understanding of

the foundations of fuzzy sets and fuzzy logic and

the competence that is needed to apply them to the

solution of real-world problem.

Approach

S. KUMARESAN, Professor of Mathematics and

Statistics, University of Hyderabad, Hyderabad.

This clear, concise and highly readable text

is designed for a first course in linear algebra and is

intended for undergraduate courses in mathematics.

It focusses throughout on geometric explanations to

make the student perceive that linear algebra is

nothing but analytic geometry of n dimensions. From

the very start, linear algebra is presented as an

extension of the theory of simultaneous linear

equations and their geometric interpretation is shown

to be a recurring theme of the subject. The

integration of abstract algebraic concepts with the

underlying geometric notions is one of the most

distinguishing features of this bookdesigned to

help students in the pursuit of multi-variable calculus

and differential geometry in subsequent courses.

Explanations and concepts are logically presented

in a conversational tone and well-constructed

writing style so that students at a variety of levels

can understand the material and acquire a solid

foundation in the basic skills of linear algebra.

KEY FEATURES

Entices students to geometric way of thinking

about linear algebra.

Includes about 100 solved examples for consoli-

dation of the important concepts introduced.

Gives about 400 exercises of various levels of

difficulty to prepare students for original thinking.

KRISHNAN

Textbook of Functional Analysis:

A Problem-Oriented Approach

V.K. KRISHNAN, Former Professor of Mathematics,

St. Thomas College, Thrissur (Kerala).

This unique, comprehensive, and student-friendly

book provides problems in functional analysis along

with their solutions. Such a practical approach will

greatly facilitate students to have a thorough grasp

of the subject. This stands in stark contrast to the

method followed in most books where a great

amount of theory is given, with a smattering of

problems to elucidate the topics discussed.

The book begins with a discussion on normed linear

spaces, then it goes on to give a detailed discussion

on such topics as Banach spaces, duality, and

bounded linear maps. The text also provides a clear-

cut analysis of Hilbert spaces, including operators on

and spectral theory in Hilbert spaces.

Intended as a text for postgraduate courses in

mathematics, this book with its systematic and

precise presentation, and provision of a large number

of exercises, should prove to be a trend-setter in its

approach to the subjectthis novelty of approach

appealing particularly to students.

KEY FEATURES

Contains a very large number of solved problems.

This will build up confidence among the students

in solving problems.

The book is not just a compendium of problems;

enough theory is given, presenting the major

concepts in functional analysis.

Gives exercises at the end of each section, which

help sharpen the intelligence of students.

Presentation of topics is straightforward and easy

to understand.

This well-organized and comprehensive text gives

an in-depth study of the fundamental principles

of Quantum Mechanics in one single volume.

Appropriate for the postgraduate courses, the book

deals with both relativistic and non-relativistic

quantum mechanics.

The distinguishing features of the text are its logical

and systematic coverage of the fundamental

principles and the applications of the theory, besides

Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) and the

American Society of Mechanical Engineering (ASME),

addresses those topics in nanotechnology that have

acquired a reasonable degree of theoretical maturity,

though according to the author-editor, nano-

technology is still in embryonic stage.

Mathematical modeling and simulation are two

valuable techniques which have myriads of uses in

almost all branches of sciences and engineering. They

are particularly indispensable in understanding

nanotechnology. This text focuses on modeling and

simulation at the nanoscale presenting significant

theory based on sound physical laws.

The leading researchers worldwide have contributed

eight substantive chapters to this volume covering

nanostructured thin films, photonic bandgap

structures, quantum dots, carbon nanotubes,

atomistic techniques, nanomechanics, nanofluidics,

and quantum information processing.

While the intent is to serve as a reference source for

expert researchers, there is sufficient content

for beginner researchers and students as well. The

level of presentation in each chapter assumes

a fundamental background at the level of an

engineering or a science graduate.

JAIN

Quantum Mechanics: A Textbook for

Undergraduates

MAHESH C. JAIN, Reader, Department of Physics,

Hindu College, University of Delhi.

The book is written specifically as a textbook for the

undergraduates in physics. Students of engineering

and chemistry will also find this book very useful to

get a basic understanding of quantum mechanics.

It is an attempt to fill the gap between the available

Quantum Mechanics books which are written mainly

for the postgraduate students, and the ones on

modern physics, which give a rather incomplete

treatment of quantum mechanics leaving out many

mathematical and conceptual details.

The book is written in an easy-to-understand style so

that the student gets a good grasp of the funda-

mental principles as well as of basic mathematical

structures.

It starts with Plancks quantum hypothesis and takes

the student along gently through the new concepts

and ideas, at a pace at which they feel comfortable

and can enjoy this wonderful subject.

A large number of solved problems, exercises and

review questions are given at the end of each

chapter, making the book self-sufficient in preparing

for the examination.

pedagogical order. Standard topics are dealt with

exclusively in the domain of classical mechanics, save

for the last chapter, although electrodynamics

extends with unique simplicity to the other three

realms of mechanics. A large collection of fully-

worked examples and numerous problems promote

comprehension and retention of the material studied.

KEY FEATURES

Friendly and informal style.

Clear focus on basic electromagnetic theory.

Expanded sections on energy, momentum, and

angular momentum.

New and revised examples and problems.

OMNS

Understanding Quantum Mechanics

ROLAND OMNS, Professor of Physics, University of

Paris XI.

The growth of quantum mechanics has been like a

giant jigsaw puzzle, to which numerous imaginative

minds have made diverse and individual

contributations. Its kaleidoscopic nature presents

different and startling facets depending on how one

twists and turns the formalism. The main difficulty of

quantum mechanics is in interpreting it. In this

compact and readable book, being much less

technical and more explanatory, the author

endeavours to explain the interpretation of quantum

mechanics, simply and completely as far as possible.

The book presents a more streamlined version of

the Copenhagen interpretation, showing its logic

consistency and completeness. The theory of

quantum measurements represents another important

contribution to interpretation, and the author

surveys its history from Planck to Heisenberg before

describing the recent advances that led to a revision

of the old interpretation. The author particularly

highlights three of them:

The decoherence effect related to the modern

resolution of the famous Schrdingers cat problem.

An exact formulation of the correspondence

between quantum and particle physics implying a

derivation of classical determinism from quantum

probabilism.

The constitution of a universal and sound language

of interpretation using the so-called consistent

histories.

The book is addressed to students of physics both at

undergraduate and postgraduate levels who have

acquired some elementary knowledge of the quantum

theory. It will also be useful to physicists and

mathematicians who wish to refresh their memory

and see what the present state of interpretation is.

Electromagnetism: Problems with

Solutions, 2nd ed.

A. PRAMANIK, D.J. Gandhi Distinguished Visiting

Professor at IIT Bombay. Formerly, Dy. Gen. Manager,

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Hyderabad.

The second edition of this book contains 40 new

problems over and above the original 440 problems.

The additional problems cover the whole range of

new topics as introduced in the second edition of the

authors main text entitled Electromagnetism: Theory

and Applications.

What Is NEW in This Edition

A number of new problems demonstrate the use of

Bessel and Legendre functions required for practical

solutions to guidance and transmission problems

of electromagnetic waves in waveguides and

antennae.

Bessel and Legendre functions have also been

introduced in the initial topics on electrostatics

and magnetostatics so that the readers would

develop familiarity with these important

mathematical functions at an earlier stage to be

able to solve problems dealing with cylindrical and

spherical geometries.

Some problems in antennae have been solved by

using the Hertz vector to show how the use of

Hertz vector makes the solving of these problems

easier.

Some problems on transmission lines requiring the

use of Bicylindrical coordinate system have also

been included.

A new appendix on Bicylindrical coordinate system

has been added.

There has been no change in the philosophy of this

book. It has been designed to serve as a companion

volume to the main text to help students gain a

thorough quantitative understanding of EM concepts

that are somewhat difficult to learn. The problems

included, as a result of the authors long industrial

and academic experience, illuminate the concepts

developed in the main text.

Besides meeting the needs of undergraduate students

of electrical engineering and postgraduate students

and researchers in physics, the book will also be

immensely useful to engineers and applied physicists

in industry.

Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL) Hyderabad.

The second edition of Electromagnetism: Theory and

Applications has been updated to cover some

additional aspects of theory and nearly all modern

applications. The semi-historical approach is

unchanged, but further historical comments have

been introduced at various places in the book to give

a better insight into the development of the subject

as well as to make the study more interesting and

palatable to the students.

What is NEW to This Edition

Vector transformations in different coordinate

systems have been included in the chapter on

Vector Analysis. The treatment forms the basis of

vector potentials for three-dimensional problems.

Chapter 13 on Vector Potentials has been

significantly expanded for a clear understanding of

the properties of vector potentials, in order to also

solve three-dimensional EM problems numerically.

A section dealing with the derivation and

interpretation of Hertz Vector has been included in

Chapter 13.

A practical problem on induction heating of flat

metal plates has been added to the chapter on

Magnetic Diffusion.

The topics of wave guidance and radiation have

been expanded with emphasis on practical aspects.

Sections on analysis of cylindrical dielectric

waveguide (e.g. of optical fibres) have been added

to Chapters 18 and 22.

New sections on basis and explanations of modal

transmissions have been added.

Characteristics and practical details of basic

antenna structures and arrays have been treated in

greater detail.

Provides comprehensive treatment of FEM (Finite

Element Method), covering both its variational

basis and procedural details, to enable the readers

to use this method without going into the heavy

mathematics underlying the method.

Describes FDM (Finite Difference Method) in more

detail with its convergence requirement.

Introduces modern numerical methods like FDTD

(Finite Difference Time Domain) and method of

moments (MOM).

A new chapter on Modern Topics and Applications

covers both high frequency and low frequency

applications.

Appendices contain in-depth analysis of self-

inductance and non-conservative fields (Appendix

6), proof regarding the boundary conditions

(Appendix 8), theory of bicylindrical coordinate

system to provide the physical basis of the circuit

approach to the cylindrical transmission line

systems (Appendix 10), and properties of useful

functions like Bessel and Legendre functions

(Appendix 9).

The book is designed to serve as a core text for

students of electrical engineering. Besides, it will be

useful to postgraduate physics students as well as

research engineers and design and development

engineers in industries.

ERIC D. SCHNEIDERof National Oceanic and

Atmospheric Administration; National Marine Water

Quality Laboratory.

DORION SAGANcoauthor of Microcosmos and What

Is Life? Science writer to New York Times, Natural

History, and Wired.

Into the Cool is a dazzling exposition of an idea:

that life is fundamentally not a noun, or a thing, but

a verb. Building upon the beautiful subtleties of the

Second Law of Thermodynamics, Eric Schneider and

Dorion Sagan take us on a tour de force through

biology, touching upon the origin of life, sex,

evolution, ecology, and even economics. Along the

way, they dethrone the idea that the gene is the

central actor in the drama of life and put the focus

properly back on the plotthe organized flows of

matter and energy that make life what it is. This

book is destined to be a classic.

students of social sciences, researchers in the field of

social sciences should find this book immensely

useful.

offers insights into the principles of classical

mechanics and, in particular, deals with the problems

of dynamical systems.

Divided into seven chapters, the text begins with a

discussion on some elementary results of statics and

dynamics. It then goes on to analyze at length the

Hamiltonian formulation along with the Poisson

bracket, the variational principle (taking Eulers

equation of calculus of variation as the base), and

different forms of the variational principle. Finally,

the text explains the integral invariants, canonical

transformations, and the HamiltonJacobi theory.

JOHN W. PRATT, HOWARD RAIFFA & ROBERT

SCHLAIFER.

This book is a classic.... The strengths of this text

are twofold. First, it gives a general and well-

motivated introduction to the principles of Bayesian

decision theory that should be accessible to anyone

with a good mathematical statistics background.

Second, it provides a good introduction to Bayesian

inference in general with particular emphasis on the

use of subjective information to choose prior

distributions.

MARK J. SCHERVISH

Journal of the American Statistical Association

Introduction to Statistical Decision Theory integrates

statistical inference with decision making and

discusses real-world actions involving economic

payoffs and risks. Besides developing the rationale

and demonstrating the power and relevance of the

subjective, decision approach, the text also examines

and critiques the limitations of the objective,

classical approach.

Thus, in a self-contained comprehensive way, the

book shows that the Bayesian approach in statistics

integration of statistics with decision making in areas

such as management, engineering, public policy and

clinical medicine, is operational and relevant for

real-world decision making under uncertainty.

are provided that cover some highlights of modern

biology and physiology to even out the life science

backgrounds of the students. A chapter that explains

how quantitative analysis is performed is often

preceded by a chapter that provides a pictorial

description of important phenomena. The mathe-

matical level is primarily algebraic, but repeated use

of some calculus techniques (e.g. optimization,

separation of variables) in different problem contexts

is done to challenge students with advanced

placement and to motivate others on the relevance of

their concurrent coursework in mathematics.

The first half of the book covers molecular and

cell-level phenomena, and applications featuring

Enzyme-based diagnostic technology

Neurons

GORDON L. FAIN is Professor of Physiological Science,

Ophthalmology, and Neuroscience at the University of

California, Los Angeles.

For understanding the functions of the brain, it is

essential to understand how the individual molecules

and cells within the nervous system function and

how they ultimately shape our behavior. This book

provides a comprehensive and up-to-date account of

what we know, what we want to know, and what we

can expect to discover in the near future about the

functioning of brain at the level of molecules and

cells.

The text presents the subject from fundamentals

to the most sophisticated concepts and latest

discoveries: from membrane potentials to recent

experiments on voltage-gated ion channels, from

descriptions of receptors, G protein, effector mole-

cules, and secondary messengers to an account of our

current understanding of long-term potentiation.

Each chapter discusses individual experiments and

illustrates the techniques and approaches that have

formed our present view of nerve-cell function.

The book aims at graduate and postgraduate students

of physiology, medical biotechnology and students of

neural and cognitive sciences. It should also be of

NAVNEET KUMAR

Textbook of Neurology

NAVNEET KUMAR, Director, Professor and Head,

Department of Medicine, as well as Head of Neurology

Division, GSVM Medical College, Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh

(UP).

Neurology, a subject considered to be complex,

studies the nervous system, and the disorders and

diseases associated with it. Most medical students

find it a tough subject. Though quite a few books

are available in the market on the subject, somehow

they fail to explain the topics in an accessible style

to the students. What this comprehensive and reader-

friendly book strives to do is to demystify the subject

and make it comprehensible even to the average

reader.

The book encompasses, within the covers of a single

volume, all aspects of neurology with great skill and

dexterity. It gives an in-depth treatment of such

topics as disorders of consciousness, language and

speech disorders, sleep disorders, movement

disorders, vertigo and ataxia. Dr. Navneet Kumar,

with his expertise and long years of experience, gives

a masterly analysis of many other topics such as

headaches including migraine, backaches, meningitis

and strokesin both the young and the elderly. He

devotes four chapters exclusively to Epilepsy, a

disease dreaded by many. Whats more, he discusses

in detail about a host of other topics in neurology,

for example, the early diagnosis of dementia,

Alzheimers disease, nervous system tumours, and

psychiatric disorders.

KEY FEATURES

Describes modern investigative techniques in the

diagnosis of nervous system disorders, these

include EEG, CAT scan, MRI, PET scan, and EMG.
