Searching for Patterns Thomas Chesney


Data mining is about finding patterns hidden inside data. It’s how the supermarket knows when your kids leave home or when your granny comes to visit; it’s how the credit card company detects fraud and how your insurance company decides whether to cover you. Searching For Patterns guides you through the techniques used to do this and the people behind them, in an easily accessible and entertaining way. Data mining is mathematical, but all the maths in this book has been kept separate from the main text, so you can skip it if you want. Data mining technologies have a wide range of applications from an online bookseller recommending a new book to an existing customer, to an autopilot flying a plane. The book does not shy away from the complexities involved, but explains them in a straightforward and understandable fashion. Searching for Patterns guides us through the tools and techniques that can be used to get to know things about people without having to ask. Also included is a review of the ethics involved in data mining.

The Physics of Rugby Trevor Davis Lipscombe What if Einstein played rugby? Surely Time Magazine’s “Man of the Century” might offer useful tips and techniques to defeat the opposition? In this book, the world of physics joins forces with the world of rugby, to show you how to tackle harder, pass safer, run faster, and scrum better - all the things you need to do to win. Blending simple physics, the kind you meet in high school, with anecdotes and stories from the world of rugby, Trevor Lipscombe takes us on a journey from scrum ruck and maul, to the running and passing of the offence, the chasing and tackling of the defence, through the kicking of penalties, to dressing for success in scorching summer sevens or winning in the winter. Physics at last comes alive, for here we look at a scrum, say, show what Newton’s laws have to say about it, and then use the physics to see how to improve rugby. For any rugby fan with a smattering of science, or any science buff who knows the rudiments of rugby, “The Physics of Rugby” should delight, entertain, and instruct.

Meat Inspection handbooks by Andy Grist Aimed primarily at students undertaking examinations in meat inspection, these fully illustrated books guide the reader through anatomy and physiology; explaining the diseased state, including how diseases can be recognised at the inspection stage and what action should be taken; parasites and their zoonotic potential; neoplasia (tumours); “Conditions encountered at post mortem inspection in abattoirs” illustrates graphically some of the lesions and abnormalities to look out for; and the three final sections give a brief overview of anatomy, causative agents of disease and possible diagnoses of specific lesions, listed by anatomical parts.


The full colour photographs make these invaluable tools for all those for whom knowledge of anatomy, diseases and other conditions is required, including veterinary surgeons and meat inspectors within the abattoir.

Spot the Difference: are cheetahs really just big cats?


This book draws together information from a variety of sources on comparisons between what is known about cats vs what is known about cheetahs. It is relevant to the husbandry and breeding of captive cheetahs and assesses the validity of the assumptions often made when using the domestic cat as a model for the cheetah. 2009 Paperback 250 pages (approx) ISBN 978-1-904761-60-0 £TBC

Gamete Biology Emerging frontiers in fertility and contraceptive development SRF Vol 63 In recent years, an impressive progress has been made in our understanding of the developmental processes involved in the formation of the spermatozoa and egg in various species. Interestingly, using stem cell biology, researchers have created both male and female gametes from totipotent cells. Further, progress has been made in our understanding of cellular and molecular basis of the sperm-egg interaction leading to fertilization. 2007 Hardback 556 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-43-3 £75.00

Spermatology SRF Vol 65


S Gupta et al. (Eds.)

E. Roldan et al. (Eds.) This book reveals the enormous potential that the study of spermatozoa has to improve our understanding of basic questions about evolution and about cellular function, and to develop new ways of manipulating sperm cells for applied purposes. 2007 Hardback 552 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-48-8 £75.00



The Alcohol Textbook - 5th Edition WM Ingledew et al (Eds) The Alcohol Textbook, in its 5th edition, is designed to provide in-depth knowledge of the processes of making fuel ethanol and distilled beverage alcohol. The authors are a mix of select university professors, research scientists and prominent members of the alcohol industry. Located in countries where the industry already thrives, most have had considerable involvement in teaching the multidisciplinary aspects of the alcohol manufacturing process. The book fills a void in the scientific literature that is also addressed by Ethanol Technology Institute’s Alcohol Schools and Operators Schools for new employees and continuing staff – many of whom have had little exposure to the discipline due to the rapid growth of production plants around the world. Like the Schools, the textbook is designed to avoid commercialism. This text has been expanded and adapted to provide the most up-to-date treatise of its kind, as the industry moves from art to science, grows and is inundated with new technologies that make decisions more difficult to make regarding plant layout, design and operation. 2009 Hardback 552 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-65-5 £160.00

Distilled Spirits FOOD AND DRINK

Production, Technology and Innovation JH Bryce, J Piggott and GG Stewart (Eds.) The distilled spirits industry is changing rapidly to meet the demands of globalisation. These demands are being met by the use of completely novel raw materials and also by the continued development of raw materials that are currently in use. Novel spirits of high quality are being manufactured at a price and with flavours that meet the aspirations of consumers. These products are being made at a time of ever increasing demands by legislatures to ensure that production is sustainable, with a minimal impact on the environment. As always, the continued growth and success of well established brands makes them a target for those who try to produce counterfeit products and take advantage of the established name of a product that has been developed and perfected over many years. Therefore, in 2008 there are many exciting challenges facing the distilled spirits industry, but also a number of threats. This book on distilled spirits contains 50 chapters which arose out of the Worldwide Distilled Spirits Conference - 2005 organised by the Institute of Brewing & Distilling, Scottish Section. 2008 Hardback 262 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-64-8 £55.00

Meat Cuts and Muscle Foods Second Edition An International Glossary Howard J Swatland The three principle aims of this substantially enlarged and revised volume are to define standardised patterns of meat cutting and ethnic variations, to provide a ready reference to the mainstream muscle foods available commercially or being developed scientifically around the world, and to help explain the properties of different meat cuts and muscle foods in terms of meat quality. 2004 Paperback 258 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-15-0 £30.00

Medicinal Plants from the East


The purpose of this book is to give its readers a comprehensive and complete compendium of medicinal plants from the East which will provide them with a logical concept that will be used as a compass for the discovery of drugs. Many of the plants have not yet been studied and readers may use it as a reference material to start new research projects or to start international research collaborative programs. Clear, precise, botanical plates for each plant are used. Details on flowers, fruits, leaves, even anthers are given. Each plate provides origin of the herbarium, location of the plant and date of collection, plus some field notes including ecological data. A very precise botanical description, based both on fresh samples and herbaria, is also given.


C Wiart

Also included is a fully searchable CD-rom which enables the reader to search for plant names, diseases, countries, or any other parameter. No other existing book covers so many disciplines of sciences and geographical distribution. 2009 Paperback 712 pages ISBN 978-1-904761-85-3 £95.00

COMING SOON - CHECK WEBSITE FOR LATEST INFORMATION Anatomists and Eponyms: An Illustrated History of Anatomy Kurt O Gilliland and Royce L Montgomery The current trends in most medical school curricula have reduced the subject matter in Human Anatomy to its barest essentials with the elimination of all eponyms. Both students and teachers are now deprived of learning the history associated with many of the former great anatomists. The objective of this book is therefore to introduce eponyms with pictures or plates depicting the investigator for which the anatomical structure is named. Only the more common eponyms associated with the various anatomical systems of the human body are included. 2010 Paperback 250 pages (approx) ISBN 978-1-904761-73-0 £TBC
