Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics XI

This carefully edited volume is the outcome of the eleventh edition of the Workshop on Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics (WAFR), which is the premier venue showcasing cutting edge research in algorithmic robotics. The eleventh WAFR, which was held August 3-5, 2014 at Boğaziçi University in Istanbul, Turkey continued this tradition. This volume contains extended versions of the 42 papers presented at WAFR. These contributions highlight the cutting edge research in classical robotics problems (e.g. manipulation, motion, path, multi-robot and kinodynamic planning), geometric and topological computation in robotics as well novel applications such as informative path planning, active sensing and surgical planning.

Robot Building for Beginners, 3rd Edition

Robot Building for Beginners, 3rd Edition provides basic, practical knowledge on getting started in amateur robotics. There is a mix of content: from serious reference tables and descriptions to personal stories and humorous bits. The robot described and built in this book is battery powered and about the size of a lunch box. It is autonomous; that is, it isn't remote controlled.

Arduino Wearable Projects

The demand for smart wearable technologies is becoming more popular day by day. The Arduino platform was developed keeping wearables, such as watches that track your location or shoes that count the miles you've run, in mind. It is basically an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board and a development environment in which you create the software for the board. If you're interested in designing and creating your own wearables, this is an excellent platform for you.

Interactive Applications Using Matplotlib

Matplotlib makes it easy to generate plots, histograms, power spectra, bar charts, error charts, and other kinds of plots, with just a few lines of code. Interactive Applications Using Matplotlib will teach you how to turn your plots into fully interactive applications for data exploration and information synthesis. After being introduced to the plotting library, you'll learn how to create simple figures and come to grips with how they work. After these first steps, we will start work on a weather radar application.

Sleep Apnea: Implications in Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease

Sleep Apnea: Implications in Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease specifically addresses the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular consequences of sleep apnea and is geared toward a broad readership of physicians that will ultimately aid patients suffering from sleep apnea.

Rare Hematological Malignancies

This hugely practical work will be a bible in the pocket of hematologists and other practitioners everywhere, covering as it does malignant hematologic diseases that physicians will only occasionally see. It provides accurate, up-to-date information on the disease biology as well as practical recommendations concerning disease management. Information concerning these diseases, and particularly regarding their management, can be extremely difficult to find. Not any more.

Six Modern Plagues and How We Are Causing Them

West Nile Virus - Mad Cow Disease - HIV/AIDS - Hantavirus - Lyme Disease ... and a new strain of Salmonella. Such modern epidemics have emerged over the past few decades as mysterious, yet significant risks to human health. These "plagues" are forcing us to modify our lifestyles in ways that minimize our chances of becoming a statistic in the latest tally of the afflicted.

Self-ligating Brackets in Orthodontics

Offering advantages in design, efficiency, treatment time, and retention, self-ligating brackets have become a major part of modern orthodontic practice. Self-Ligating Brackets in Orthodontics: Current Concepts and Techniques summarizes all information and clinical studies on these popular systems, integrating them with the authors' practical, hands-on experience. From materials and mechanics, to diagnostic and therapeutic principles, to step-by-step treatment techniques, the book is a visual guide and compendium to this groundbreaking field.

The Outpatient Breast Clinic: Aiming at Best Practice

This full-colour, richly-illustrated book is an excellent source of rapidly retrievable information on aspects of relevance in daily clinical practice in the outpatient breast clinic. Expert guidance is provided on a full range of topics, including pitfalls of clinical examination, imaging and related tissue diagnosis, approaches to management decision-making in different disorders, the role of surgery and adjuvant therapy, follow-up and rehabilitation.

Dental Materials and Their Selection, 4th edition

Fundamental principles of material science are closely integrated with everyday dental practice in the newly revised edition of this classic textbook. Written in a practical, straightforward manner with the student practitioner in mind, this book presents the essential knowledge of material structure and properties. A glossary of terms and discussion questions are included with each chapter to help students focus on the concepts they will need as practicing dentists. Promoting problem-based learning through the use of real-life clinical scenarios, the authors show how to apply the framework of material science to restorative treatment plans.
