The advent of instruments capable of measuring sound intensity, which represents the flow of energy in sound fields, has revolutionised audio-frequency acoustical metrology. Since publication of the first edition, two International Standards for the use of sound intensity for sound source power determination, and one International Standard for soun
Provides a concept which scholars, researchers and entrepreneurs themselves can use to e×plore the phenomenon of entrepreneurship and its impact on individuals, organizations and societies.
The result is a book that should be enthusiastically greeted and debated by scholars of Whitehead and by all who are interested in the field of process thought, including students of theology, literature, and feminist studies.
Offers an explanation for political activism and general political participation
Strives to make low-intensity conflict more understandable, as it poses important problems for American interests and policy. The U.S. will better secure its own interests only when it has developed a flexible capacity to deal with the root causes of conflicts around the world. Discusses the Middle East, Afghanistan, Guatemala and El Salvador, Africa, the Philippings and Indonesia.
The 2001 National Energy Policy calls for continued reductions in energy intensity (energy consumption per dollar of gross economic output). This study was part of an effort to identify state-level factors that may contribute to efficient energy use nationwide. The authors examined changes in energy intensity in 48 states and in the states' energy-consuming sectors from 1977 through 1999. Some factors that may explain differences in states' energy intensity are energy prices, new construction, capacity utilization, population, climate, tech innovations, and government energy policies.
Gifted children and adults are often misunderstood. Their excitement is viewed as excessive, their high energy as hyperactivity, their persistence as nagging, their imagination as not paying attention, their passion as being disruptive, their strong emotions and sensitivity as immaturity, their creativity and self-directedness as oppositional. This resource describes these overexcitabilities and strategies for dealing with children and adults who are experiencing them, and provides essential information about Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration. Learn practical methods for nurturing sensitivity, intensity, perfectionism, and much more.
This book provides a comprehensive treatment of intensity dependent particle beam instabilities in accelerating rings. Written for researchers, the material is also suitable for use as a textbook in an advanced graduate course for students studying accelerator physics.The presentation starts with a brief review of the basic concept of wake potentials and coupling impedances in the vacuum chamber followed by a discussion on static and dynamic solutions of their effects on the particle beams. Special emphasis is placed separately on proton and electron machines. Other special topics of interest covered include Landau damping, Balakin-Novokhatsky-Smirnov damping, Sacherer's integral equations, Landau cavity, saw-tooth instability, Robinson stability criteria, beam loading, transition crossing, two-stream instabilities, and collective instability issues of isochronous rings. After the formulation of an instability, readers are provided a thorough description of one or more experimental observations together with a discussion of the cures for the instability.Although the book is theory oriented, the use of mathematics has been minimized. The presentation is intended to be rigorous and self-contained with nearly all the formulas and equations derived.
This training system teaches how to perform the perfect rep, minimizing momentum and maximizing muscle tension to develop optimal strength in the targeted muscles. Triple progressive overload and other advanced training techniques will push you beyond muscle failure to help you reach your next level of performance, boost power and strength, and break through plateaus. Also learn to manipulate rest, recovery, time under tension, and load to match the demands of your sport.
In Managing High-Intensity Internet Projects, Ed Yourdon delivers instant, practical solutions for virtually every challenge you'll face in leading today's high-intensity, Internet-time projects. Yourdon's breakthrough management techniques cover strategies, politics, processes, tools, and the entire development lifecycle - from requirements through coding, monitoring progress through testing and delivery.
Presents the technical aspects of IMRT, and the clinical aspects of planning and delivery. The volulme explores a practical approach for radiation oncologists and medical physicists initiating or expanding and IMRT program, the fundamental biology and physics of IMRT, a site-by-site review of IMRT techniques with clinical examples, and reviews of published outcome studies.
After two brief attempts at boarding-school, Noelle finds herself living alone and utterly lost at the age of 16. While struggling to eek out an existence, Noelle unintentionally accesses several past life memories. At first in fun but then in search of a way to better herself, Noelle follows her own story through several lifetimes and into the uncertain present. Noelle soon recognizes her soul mate from these memories, but when he does not seem interested, her loneliness starts to get the best of her. Should she wait for him, or repeat a tantalizing past mistake?
Conformal radiation therapy represents a new challenge. It offers the prospect of either increasing the radiation dose to target tissues while delivering a similar dose to organs at risk, or reducing the dose to organs at risk while maintaining the dose to target tissues. First, lymph node areas at risk are established using the available data from pathological examination. Then, based on a three-dimensional description of the anatomical regions, guidelines for the delineation of the clinical target volumes are proposed. The data presented should enable the reader to make appropriate decisions regarding the selection and delineation of the target volumes when confronted with the most frequent tumor types and sites.
The E-Vision 2002 Conference, held in May 2002, was sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy as a step toward implementing a key recommendation of the Bush administration's National Energy Policy. It gathered 150 of the nation's leading energy experts to discuss ways of reducing the country's energy intensity. This volume and the additional volume enclosed on CD-ROM contain the presentations and discussions that took place at the conference, including the identification of goals and the means to achieve them. It is a key work for those involved in implementing the National Energy Policy.
