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
Homo sapiens in the context of human evolution
form the basis of various theories regarding the evo-
lution of modern man. These theories are thoroughly
examined in the text.

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

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.

Processes of Life, The: An
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.

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

basic chemistry behind them.
This edition is more accessible and chemistry oriented
than the previous edition with reorganization and
expansion of basic chemistry. More cutting edge
environmental topics and numerous worked-out
examples reinforce understanding of the basic
principles.
Undergraduate and postgraduate students of environ-

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
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.

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.

to geographic aspects of major economic activities.
Using an international perspective (to emphasize
global interdependence), it provides complete
treatment of all major economic activitiesfrom
primitive/subsistence activity, through fishing/
forestry, mineral resources, commercial and planta-
tion agriculture, manufacturing, services, trade, high
technology, and urban economic activity (including

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).

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

KUMARESAN
Linear Algebra: A Geometric
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.

in a separate chapter as the subject has wide
applications in computer science. In addition, the
book presents some of the classical problems of the
calculus of variations, including the brachistochrone
problem. The text concludes with a discussion on
tensor analysis which has important applications in
the study of continuum mechanics, theory of
relativity, and elasticity.

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.

Introduction to Acoustics
ROBERT D. FINCH, Professor Emeritus, Department of
Mechanical Engineering, University of Houston.
Focusing both on the systems theory (modern
information theory, the theory of stochastic
processes, modern control theory, exploitation of
nonlinearity, ....) and the engineering aspects
of acoustics, this post-graduate/senior undergraduate
book is appropriate for the introductory course in
acoustics, besides being useful for courses in
vibration transducers, acoustic radiation, noise
control etc. The author emphasizes real-world
applications while combining principles from both
electrical and mechanical engineering, alongwith
instrumentation and basic measurement techniques.
From vibrations and linear systems to noise control
and acoustic systems, the text encompasses both
simple and complex real-world applications.

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.

MROZOWSKI
Guided Electromagnetic Waves:
Properties and Analysis
MICHAL MROZOWSKI, Technical University of Gdansk,
Poland.
This book gives in-depth coverage of the full
spectrum of propagating, evanescent and complex
(semi-evanescent) modes. It elucidates the guided
wave propagation phenomena and introduces useful
analytical techniques that the students can easily
apply in solving practical problems. Providing
the necessary mathematical and electromagnetic
background, the book discusses the various topics
that concern the many classes of permittivity and
permeability (isotropic, anisotropic, gyrotropic) and
geometric symmetries of the waveguides themselves.
An important topic treated in this book is complex
waves. It discusses the circumstances under which
complex modes appear and explains how they relate
to their accompanying propagating and evanescent
modes.
The text is supplemented by four Appendices which
offer the reader additional background regarding
vector identities and properties of operators.
This book is suitable for students of electrical
engineering and physics at postgraduate level as well
as for researchers.

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

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

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).

ERIC D. SCHNEIDERof National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration; National Marine Water

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.

Introduction to Statistical Decision
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.

Introduction to Biomedical
Engineering
MICHAEL M. DOMACH, Carnegie Mellon University.
This is an introductory textbook that provides a
broader understanding of this frontline subject with
certain depth. The book aims to:
Explain the range of bioengineering activity in
order to orient starting engineering students.
Provide a sense of how engineering differs from
science.
Present some achievable depth on some salient
science and engineering facets that drive a cross
section of bioengineering practice.
Emphasis is placed on biomedical engineering, while
also providing some material that is relevant to
bioresource engineering and biochemical engineering.
The level of the discussion and homework problems
are geared to freshmen college students who possess
backgrounds in basic chemistry and physics. Chapters
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
Metabolic engineering
Tissue Engineering
The second half of the text covers human-scale
bioengineering featuring biomechanical, biomaterial,
and electrical sensing applications such as

FAIN
Molecular and Cellular Physiology of
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
interest to anyone interested in the role of molecules
and cells in the central nervous system.

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.

Hypertension is one of the major risk factors for
various heart ailments, such as congestive heart
failure, coronary heart disease, stroke, and renal
dysfunction, and accounts for 2025% of all
deaths due to cardiovascular damage. Owing to a
greater awareness of the public health, the need
for primary prevention, an early detection and
adequate treatment of the disease are being strongly
felt.
This report of the WHO Expert Committee contributes
to the understanding of hypertension by enumerating
its risk factors and predictors, and the best measures
for its prevention and control with emphasis on the
general usefulness of systolic blood pressure
measurements. The distinctive Key Features of
hypertension in children and adolescents,
women, elderly and diabetic people are extremely
