Analytical Modelling of Fuel Cells

 

Elsevier, 2010.

ISBNs 9780444535603

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): In fuel cell research, the gap between fundamental electrochemical processes and the engineering of fuel cell systems is bridged by the physical modelling of fuel cells. This relatively new discipline aims to understand the basic transport and kinetic phenomena in a real cell and stack environment, paving the way for improved design and performance. The author brings his unique approach to the analytical modeling of fuel cells to this essential reference for energy technologists...

  • Covers recent advances and analytical solutions to a range of problems faced by energy technologists, from catalyst layer performance to thermal stability
  • Provides detailed graphs, charts and other tools (glossary, index) to maximize R&D output while minimizing costs and time spent on dead-end research
  • Presents Kulikovsky’s signature approach (and the data to support it)—which uses "simplified" models based on idealized systems, basic geometries, and minimal assumptions—enabling qualitative understanding of the causes and effects of phenomena

    Applied Computing in Medicine and Health

     

    Morgan Kaufmann, 2016.

    ISBNs 9780128034682

    Colección: ScienceDirect

    Resumen (en inglés):

    Applied Computing in Medicine and Health is a comprehensive presentation of on-going investigations into current applied computing challenges and advances, with a focus on a particular class of applications, primarily artificial intelligence methods and techniques in medicine and health.

    Applied computing is the use of practical computer science knowledge to enable use of the latest technology and techniques in a variety of different fields ranging from business to scientific research. One of the most important and relevant areas in applied computing is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in health and medicine. Artificial intelligence in health and medicine (AIHM) is assuming the challenge of creating and distributing tools that can support medical doctors and specialists in new endeavors. The material included covers a wide variety of interdisciplinary perspectives concerning the theory and practice of applied computing in medicine, human biology, and health care.

    Particular attention is given to AI-based clinical decision-making, medical knowledge engineering, knowledge-based systems in medical education and research, intelligent medical information systems, intelligent databases, intelligent devices and instruments, medical AI tools, reasoning and metareasoning in medicine, and methodological, philosophical, ethical, and intelligent medical data analysis.

    • Discusses applications of artificial intelligence in medical data analysis and classifications
    • Provides an overview of mobile health and telemedicine with specific examples and case studies
    • Explains how behavioral intervention technologies use smart phones to support a patient centered approach

    Academic Press, 2015.

    ISBNs 9780128013786

    Colección: ScienceDirect

    Resumen (en inglés):

    Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology: Distribution, Abundance, Species Richness offers a new synthesis of the state-of-the-art of hierarchical models for plant and animal distribution, abundance, and community characteristics such as species richness using data collected in metapopulation designs. These types of data are extremely widespread in ecology and its applications in such areas as biodiversity monitoring and fisheries and wildlife management.

    This first volume explains static models/procedures in the context of hierarchical models that collectively represent a unified approach to ecological research, taking the reader from design, through data collection, and into analyses using a very powerful class of models. Applied Hierarchical Modeling in Ecology, Volume 1 serves as an indispensable manual for practicing field biologists, and as a graduate-level text for students in ecology, conservation biology, fisheries/wildlife management, and related fields.

    • Provides a synthesis of important classes of models about distribution, abundance, and species richness while accommodating imperfect detection
    • Presents models and methods for identifying unmarked individuals and species
    • Written in a step-by-step approach accessible to non-statisticians and provides fully worked examples that serve as a template for readers' analyses
    • Includes companion website containing data sets, code, solutions to exercises, and further information

    Approaches to Research on the Systematics of Fish-Borne Trematodes

     

    Academic Press, 2014.

    ISBNs 9780124077201

    Colección: ScienceDirect

    Resumen (en inglés):

    Approaches to Research on the Systematics of Fish-Borne Trematodes is a concise guide for systematic studies of the prevalence of fish-borne trematodes both in the endemic areas and experimental laboratories. It includes methods to identify species of fish-borne trematodes to enhance the precision of research studies based on the metacercarial stage.

    Misidentification of trematode species is a common occurrence when researchers are new to the field and have no guidance. Consequentially, sometimes publications report inaccurate prevalence rates of these parasites. This compact guide gives clear direction on:

    • Collection of parasites in the final hosts
    • Collection of cercaria from snail first intermediate hosts
    • Collection of metacercaria from fish hosts
    • Molecular identification of parasites
    • Systematics of fish-borne trematodes
    • Provides research guidelines and protocols for studying systematics of fish-borne trematodes using both morphological and molecular data
    • Presents keys to enable identification of metacercariae of fish-borne trematodes in the Greater Mekong subregion
