Linear Algebra constitutes a foundation course for those specializing in the fields of mathematics, engineering and science. The course normally takes one semester, but for those needing a more rigorous study of the subject, it involve up to two semesters.This book is based on the lecture notes given for the linear algebra course at the Department of Mathematics in Wuhan University.

This invaluable book contains selected papers of Prof Chuan-Chih Hsiung, renowned mathematician in differential geometry and founder and editor-in-chief of a unique international journal in this field, the Journal of Differential Geometry.During the period of 1935-1943, Prof Hsiung was in China working on projective differential geometry under Prof Buchin Su. In 1946, he went to the United States, where he gradually shifted to global problems. Altogether Prof Hsiung has published about 100 research papers, from which he has selected 64 (in chronological order) for this volume.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Conference on Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing, EUC 2004, held in Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Japan, in August 2004. The 104 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from more than 260 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on embedded hardware and software; real-time systems; power-aware computing; hardware/software codesign and systems-on-chip; mobile computing; wireless communication; multimedia and pervasive computing; agent technology and distributed computing, network protocols, security, and fault-tolerance; and middleware and peer-to-peer computing.
This volume contains the 37 papers presented at the 9th International Con- rence on Real-Time and Embedded Computing Systems and Applications (RT- CSA 2003). RTCSA is an international conference organized for scientists and researchers from both academia and industry to hold intensive discussions on advancing technologies topics on real-time systems, embedded systems, ubiq- tous/pervasive computing, and related topics. RTCSA 2003 was held at the Department of Electrical Engineering of National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan. Paper submissions were well distributed over the various aspects of real-time computing and embedded system technologies. There were more than 100 participants from all...
Viruses are the causes of approximately 25% of human cancers. Due to their importance in carcinogenesis, there is a desperate need for a book that discusses these viruses. This book is therefore timely, providing a comprehensive review of the molecular biology of oncogenic viruses and the cancers they cause. Viruses that are discussed in the individual chapters include hepatitis B virus, hepatitis C virus, human papilloma viruses, EpsteinOCoBarr virus, Kaposi's sarcoma virus and human T-cell leukemia virus type 1. This book provides up-to-date information for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical students, physicians and non-experts who are interested in learning more about the on...
All papers were peer-reviewed. The SRI2006 Proceedings features the most recent developments in present synchrotron radiation sources and up-to-date free electron lasers and photon energies from the infrared to hard X-rays, beamline instrumentation to transport the radiation to the experiments, as well as experimental techniques to utilize it. Also included are recent experimental results in synchrotron radiation sciences. Topics included are: SR-sources and advanced sources; insertion devices; beamlines and optics; detectors; time-resolved techniques; micro/nanoscopy; sysnchrotron radiation for nanoscience and technology; lithography and micromachining; industrial applications; surface and interface analysis; magnetism and spintronics; chemistry and materials science; life sciences and medical sciences.
