Category Theory for the Sciences
Category theory was invented in the 1940s to unify and synthesize different areas in mathematics, and it has proven remarkably successful in enabling powerful communication between disparate fields and subfields within mathematics. This book shows that category theory can be useful outside of mathematics as a rigorous, flexible, and coherent modeling language throughout the sciences. Information is inherently dynamic; the same ideas can be organized and reorganized in countless ways, and the ability to translate between such organizational structures is becoming increasingly important in the sciences. Category theory offers a unifying framework for information modeling that can facilitate the translation of knowledge between disciplines. Written in an engaging and straightforward style, and assuming little background in mathematics, the book is rigorous but accessible to non-mathematicians. Using databases as an entry to category theory, it begins with sets and functions, then introduces the reader to notions that are fundamental in mathematics: monoids, groups, orders, and graphs — categories in disguise. After explaining the "big three" concepts of category theory — categories, functors, and natural transformations — the book covers other topics, including limits, colimits, functor categories, sheaves, monads, and operads. The book explains category theory by examples and exercises rather than focusing on theorems and proofs. It includes more than 300 exercises, with selected solutions. is intended to create a bridge between the vast array of mathematical concepts used by mathematicians and the models and frameworks of such scientific disciplines as computation, neuroscience, and physics.

Molecular Mechanisms Underpinning the Development of Obesity by Clevio Nobrega PhD and Raquel Rodriguez-Lopez PhD
English | 2014 | ISBN: 3319127659 | 194 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Molecular Mechanisms Underpinning the Development of Obesity
Obesity is a multi-factorial disease, in which an excess of accumulated body fat can reach levels capable of affecting health. It results from an interplay between environmental factors, eating behavior, genes, epigenetics, and neuronal stimuli. The main aim of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art revision about the molecular mechanisms underpinning the development of obesity, reviewing the current knowledge in areas like monogenic and polygenic obesity forms, but also providing an updated view of the emerging knowledge about epigenetics, nutrigenomics, and neuronal aspects that also contribute to obesity.

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts by Sophie Hermans and Thierry Visart de Bocarme
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1849738297 | 316 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Atomically-Precise Methods for Synthesis of Solid Catalysts
There is much interest in preparing catalysts with specific structures for a desired catalytic activity. Although there has been a great amount of research into correlating particles sizes and microstructure to catalytic activity, knowledge about practical catalysts still remain ill-defined. The current challenge is now to understand atomic control.

provides an overview of recent developments in heterogeneous catalysts preparation which aim at controlling the microstructure of such catalysts at the atomic scale. Each chapter provides a different synthetic approach to achieve atomic-scale control along techniques to characterize the atomically-precise solids. Topics covered include bimetallic supported catalysts from single-source precursors zeolite-supported molecular metal complex catalyst, surface organometallic chemistry, atomic layer deposition and electron microscopy of catalysts.

Edited by active researchers in the area, the book aims to bridge the gap between surface science and heterogeneous catalysis. The book is suitable for graduate students as well as researchers in academia in industry from various disciplines including engineering, inorganic/organometallic chemistry, surface science and physical chemistry interested in catalyst design.

Modeling and Simulation-Based Systems Engineering Handbook

Modeling and Simulation-Based Systems Engineering Handbook (Engineering Management) by Daniele Gianni and Andrea D'Ambrogio
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1466571454 | 513 pages | PDF | 49,7 MB

Modeling and Simulation-Based Systems Engineering Handbook
The capability modeling and simulation (M&S) supplies for managing systems complexity and investigating systems behaviors has made it a central activity in the development of new and existing systems. However, a handbook that provides established M&S practices has not been available. Until now. details the M&S practices for supporting systems engineering in diverse domains. It discusses how you can identify systems engineering needs and adapt these practices to suit specific application domains, thus avoiding redefining practices from scratch.

Although M&S practices are used and embedded within individual disciplines, they are often developed in isolation. However, they address recurring problems common to all disciplines. The editors of this book tackled the challenge by recruiting key representatives from several communities, harmonizing the different perspectives derived from individual backgrounds, and lining them up with the book's vision. The result is a collection of M&S systems engineering examples that offer an initial means for cross-domain capitalization of the knowledge, methodologies, and technologies developed in several communities. These examples provide the pros and cons of the methods and techniques available, lessons learned, and pitfalls to avoid.

As our society moves further in the information era, knowledge and M&S capabilities become key enablers for the engineering of complex systems and systems of systems. Therefore, knowledge and M&S methodologies and technologies become valuable output in an engineering activity, and their cross-domain capitalization is key to further advance the future practices in systems engineering. This book collates information across disciplines to provide you with the tools to more efficiently design and manage complex systems that achieve their goals.

Mike Furr, "Scale Construction and Psychometrics for Social and Personality Psychology"
English | ISBN: 0857024043 | 2011 | 160 pages | PDF | 5 MB

Scale Construction and Psychometrics for Social and Personality Psychology
Providing conceptual and practical foundations in scale construction and psychometrics for producers and consumers of social/personality research, this guide covers basic principles, practices, and processes in scale construction, scale evaluation, scale use, and interpretation of research results in the context of psychological measurement. It explains fundamental concepts and methods related to dimensionality, reliability, and validity. In addition, it provides relatively non-technical introductions to special topics and advanced psychometric perspectives such as Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Generalizability Theory, and Item Response Theory.

The SAGE Library in Social and Personality Psychology Methods provides students and researchers with an understanding of the methods and techniques essential to conducting cutting-edge research.

Each volume within the Library explains a specific topic and has been written by an active scholar (or scholars) with expertise in that particular methodological domain. Assuming no prior knowledge of the topic, the volumes are clear and accessible for all readers. In each volume, a topic is introduced, applications are discussed, and readers are led step by step through worked examples. In addition, advice about how to interpret and prepare results for publication are presented.
