Four new titles for casual nightime reading.
International Textbook of Diabetes Mellitus
Sections covered include epidemiology, diagnosis, pathogenesis, management and complications of diabetes and public health issues worldwide.
You can search the Textbook by subject, article and keyword. The first chapters launched online in August 2003, with further chapters added subsequently. Online publication of the core chapters is now complete. With new and revised articles to be added, this work will stay at the forefront of developments within the various fields of diabetes.
Encyclopedia of Genetics, Genomics, Proteomics and Bioinformatics
Genomics is a rapidly growing field, driving technological advances and increasing our understanding of biology and disease. Systematic experimental approaches and large-scale computational analyses are bringing us a more complete knowledge of cellular processes and how these are coordinated within organisms.
By integrating articles on genetics, genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics, this major reference work reflects the broad nature of this field and ensures a truly multidisciplinary approach. The focus is on the human and mouse genomes, but other important model eukaryotes, as well as pathogenic bacteria, are given in-depth coverage. Topics include Genetic Variation and Evolution, Epigenetics, The Human Genome, Expression Profiling, Proteome Families, Structural Proteomics, Gene Finding/Gene Structure, and Protein function and annotation. The work incorporates a vast amount of topical information, profiling cutting-edge techniques and presenting the current scientific understanding in the field.
Encyclopedia of Imaging Science and Technology
Exploring all aspects and fields of imaging science—from archaeology to life sciences to engineering to analytical chemistry. In the past this area has been approached on a field-by-field basis (medical imaging, analytical chemistry, nondestructive testing, structural analysis), but there has been no single reference work bringing all this information together. The rich content provided here can be categorized as follows:
* Imaging Applications
* End User
* Image Formation
* Detector Technology
* Digital Image Processing
* Display Technology
* Image Techniques and Systems.
By addressing both the theory as well as the application of imaging science this encyclopedia will appeal to the academic as well as the industrial divisions of this large and diverse industry.
Wiley encyclopedia of Telecommunications
Engineers have long required a comprehensive yet concise resource to turn to for reliable, up-to-date information on the continually evolving field of telecommunications. In five easily searched volumes, the Wiley Encyclopedia of Telecommunications provides a broad, clear overview of both the fundamentals of and recent advances in telecommunications. This essential reference—the only one dedicated to telecommunications for electrical engineers—is available in print and online formats.
* Optical communications
* Modulation and demodulation
