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 book contains some selected papers from the International Conference on Extreme Learning Machine 2015, which was held in Hangzhou, China, December 15-17, 2015. This conference brought together researchers and engineers to share and exchange R&D experience on both theoretical studies and practical applications of the Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) technique and brain learning. This book covers theories, algorithms ad applications of ELM. It gives readers a glance of the most recent advances of ELM.
Multiple relationships exist between antimicrobial resistance and bacterial virulence, and the spread of clones combining multiple antibiotic resistance and a high virulence level is an increasing problem. It was previously described how mutation-driven or horizontally acquired resistance mechanisms can also have effects on virulence. It was also reported that mobile genetic elements often carry both resistance determinants and virulence-modulating genes, which favors the co-selection of both traits. In the present volume, we present a collection of articles which document additional aspects of the interactions between antimicrobial resistance and virulence in bacteria, and describe their potential therapeutic consequences.
This book constitutes the refereeds proceedings of the International Conference on High Performance Architecture and Grid Computing, HPAGC 2011, held in Chandigarh, India, in July 2011. The 87 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 240 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on grid and cloud computing; high performance architecture; information management and network security.
Magnesium Alloys as Degradable Biomaterials provides a comprehensive review of the biomedical applications of biodegradable magnesium and its alloys. Magnesium has seen increasing use in orthopedic and cardiovascular applications over the last decade, particularly for coronary stents and bone implants. The book discusses the basic concepts of biodegradation mechanisms as well as strategies to control biodegradation mode and rate, microstructure, mechanical properties, corrosion resistance to body fluid, and in vitro and in vivo biocompatibility. The recently developed representative magnesium alloy systems—such as Mg-Ca, Mg-Zn, Mg-Sr, Mg-Ag, Mg-Li, and Mg-RE—are reviewed and their specia...
Written by leading experts from industry and academia, this first single comprehensive resource addresses recent developments in next generation DNA sequencing technology and their impact on genome research, drug discovery and health care. As such, it presents a detailed comparative analysis of commercially available platforms as well as insights into alternative, emerging sequencing techniques. In addition, the book not only covers the principles of DNA sequencing techniques but also social, ethical and commercial aspects, the concept of personalized medicine and a five-year perspective of DNA sequencing.
This advanced undergraduate and graduate text has now been revised and updated to cover the basic principles and applications of various types of stochastic systems, with much on theory and applications not previously available in book form. The text is also useful as a reference source for pure and applied mathematicians, statisticians and probabilists, engineers in control and communications, and information scientists, physicists and economists.
