Optics of Nanomaterials Vladimir I. Gavrilenko Norfolk State University, Virginia, USA

“Vladimir Gavrilenko has developed an extremely useful book for scientists who are interested in the rapidly developing field of nanomaterials with emphasis on the optical properties of these materials. Of particular importance is that the book covers many different kinds of optical properties (linear and nonlinear, coherent and incoherent) and many different kinds of materials (carbon and silicon-based, metals, semiconductors, and biological nanomaterials). For each topic there is a careful discussion of fundamental theory as well as specific applications that have proven important to the development of the field. There are also extensive citations to recent papers.” —George C. Schatz, Northwestern University

Through comparative analysis of the sizedependent optical response from nanomaterials, this text shows that although strides have been made in computational chemistry and physics, bridging length scales from nano to macro remains a major challenge. The book explains how organic, molecular, polymer, and biological systems are potentially useful models for assembly. It also examines how optical properties of biological nanomaterials are important driving forces for a variety of applications.

A practical road map to the key families of biomaterials and their potential applications in clinical therapeutics, Introduction to Biomaterials, Second Edition follows the entire path of development from theory to lab to practical application. It highlights new biocompatibility issues, metrics, and statistics along with new legislation for intellectual property. With 9 completely new chapters and 24 chapters extensively updated with new accomplishments and contemporary data, this dramatically revised edition includes both new and revised chapters on cells, tissues, and signaling molecules in wound healing cascades as well as two revised chapters on standardized materials testing with in vitro and in vivo paradigms consistent with regulatory guidelines. Emphasizing biocompatibility at the biomaterial-host interface, it investigates cell-cell interactions, cell-signaling and the inflammatory and complement cascades, specific interactions of protein-adsorbed materials, and other inherent biological constraints, including solid-liquid interfaces, diffusion, and protein types. Unique in its inclusion of the practicalities of biomaterials as an industry, the book also covers the basic principles of statistics, new U.S. FDA information on the biomaterials-biology issues relevant to patent applications, and considerations of intellectual property and patent disclosure.

“I enjoyed the easy writing style which, coupled with worked examples to compliment the theory, and self-learning exercises at the end of each chapter, make for a very useful book for industry, academia and R&D … . an enjoyable read providing some extremely valuable theoretical and practical information making it a very useful reference book and teaching aid.”

This book places recent developments in the context of more classical theories. Divided into three sections, the text evolves from fundamentals to applications. The first part presents the thermodynamics of solutions and then builds on that subject to describe equilibrium phase diagrams. The second part uses fundamental concepts for the treatment of nucleation, dendritic growth, microsegregation, eutectic and peritectic solidication, and microstructure competition. Through modeling tools and microstructure descriptions, the last part illustrates various types of defects.

This edition incorporates the most important developments that have occurred in the past two decades, including “living” radical polymerization, supramolecular polymerization, and block and graft copolymer synthesis methods. • Provides extensive, detailed, and balanced coverage of important aspects of polymer chemistry and polymer physics up to the final year at the undergraduate level and beyond • Reorganizes the content to make the text easier for teaching and learning • Illustrates all topics with extensive reaction schemes and/or diagrams • Derives equations from first principles, highlighting the inherent assumptions, limitations, and strengths in the use of each equation • Includes suggestions for further reading as well as end-of-chapter problems Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption

Selected Contents: Concepts, Nomenclature and Synthesis of Polymers. Characterization of Polymers. Phase Structure and Morphology of Bulk Polymers. Properties of Bulk Polymers. Answers to Problems. Index.


Technical Writing A Practical Guide for Engineers and Scientists Phillip A. Laplante The Pennsylvania State University, Malvern, USA

Written by a renowned engineer and widely published technical author, this guide enables students to write, edit, and publish materials of a technical nature, including books, articles, reports, and electronic media. Complementing the traditional writer’s reference manuals and other books on technical writing, it helps students understand the practical considerations in writing technical content. Drawing on his own work, the author presents many first-hand examples of writing, editing, and publishing technical materials. These examples illustrate how a publication originated as well as various challenges and solutions. • Offers precise, hands-on coverage of technical writing • Complements the traditional writer’s reference manuals and other books on technical writing • Includes a number of personal anecdotes and historical stories that serve as real-world examples of technical writing • Explores the various avenues for publishing your work • Explains how to write for blogs, social networks, and other e-media • Incorporates at least one figure, table, graphic, bullet list, or equation on most pages

Selected Contents: The Nature of Technical Writing. Technical Writing Basics. The Writing Process. Scientific Writing. Business Communications. Technical Reporting. Using Graphical Elements. Publishing Your Work. Writing for E-Media. Writing with Collaborators. Glossary. Index. July 2011, 250 pp. Soft Cover, ISBN: 978-1-4398-2085-8, £25.99

General A First Course in Differential Equations, Modeling, and Simulation Carlos A. Smith and Scott W. Campbell

Random Phenomena Fundamentals of Probability and Statistics for Engineers Babatunde A. Ogunnaike University of Delaware, Newark, USA

University of South Florida, Tampa, USA

Emphasizing a practical approach for students, this text avoids overly theoretical explanations and shows students how differential equations are derived by applying basic physical principles and experimental observations to engineering systems. This resource also covers classical methods for obtaining the analytical solution of differential equations and Laplace transforms. In addition, the authors discuss how these equations describe mathematical systems and how to use software to solve sets of equations in which analytical solutions cannot be determined. Numerical values are provided in all examples and problems.

“As an engineer involved in statistical data analysis, I would have loved to be taught from a book like this and I heartily recommend this book as a classroom textbook for both the clarity of the explanations and the amount of material covered. The book further accommodates such use with a large amount of review questions, exercises, application problems, and project assignments. …” —Pieter Bastiaan Ober, Journal of Applied Statistics, 2011 Solutions manual available upon qualifying course adoption
