Despite the different nature of financial engineering and electrical engineering, both areas are intimately connected on a mathematical level. The foundations of financial engineering lie on the statistical analysis of numerical time series and the modeling of the behavior of the financial markets in order to perform predictions and systematically optimize investment strategies. Similarly, the foundations of electrical engineering, for instance, wireless communication systems, lie on statistical signal processing and the modeling of communication channels in order to perform predictions and systematically optimize transmission strategies. Both foundations are the same in disguise. It is often the case in science that the same or very similar methodologies are developed and applied independently in different areas. A Signal Processing Perspective of Financial Engineering is about investment in financial assets treated as a signal processing and optimization problem. It explores such connections and capitalizes on the existing mathematical tools deveIoped in wireless communications and signal processing to solve real-life problems arising in the financial markets in ran-unprecedented way. A Signal Processing Perspective of Financial Engineering provides straightforward and systematic access to financial engineering for researchers in signal processing and communications so that they can understand problems in financial engineering more easily and may even apply signal processing techniques to handle some financial problems.
Preliminary: This study describes a global assessment of stem cell engineering research, achieved through site visits by a panel of experts to leading institutes, followed by dedicated workshops. The assessment made clear that engineers and the engineering approach with its quantitative, system-based thinking can contribute much to the progress of stem cell engineering research. Additionally, the increased need for complex computational models and new, innovative technologies, such as high-throughput screening techniques, organ-on-a-chip models and in vitro tumor models requires an increasing involvement of engineering and physical scientists. Additionally, this book will show that although the US is still in a leadership position in stem cell engineering, Asian countries like Japan, China and Korea, as well as European countries like the UK, Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands are rapidly expanding their investments in the field. Strategic partnerships between countries could lead to major advances of the field and scalable expansion and differentiation of stem cells. This study was funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Cancer Institute (NIH) and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST).
Since the major pioneering of joint replacement surgery more than fifty years ago, much research and progress has been made in the field of arthroplasty with new insights into better materials, types of cement and bone-cell compatible coatings, and a better understanding of the causes of implant failure. With an increasingly ageing population the requirement for arthroplastic surgery is manifest; over 800,000 hips worldwide are replaced each year, and replacement surgery is performed for almost every joint of the body.
The Engineering of Human Joint Replacements covers the design, engineering, production and manufacture of human joint replacements, as well as associated engineering concerns such as surface coatings, orthopedic bone cement, the causes and effects of wear and tear, and rapid prototyping for clinical evaluation. Materials evaluation and selection is discussed, as well as production processes and insertion methods. The author provides an overview of skeletal anatomy and the effects of pain and deterioration in order to put the engineering principles into a medical context. Examples of joint replacements for the most common regions of the body are included, and aspects of clinical studies of these cases are discussed.
? Provides an overview of the engineering materials and processes involved in the manufacture ofÂ Â Â human joint replacements
The Engineering of Human Joint Replacements bridges the divide between engineering and orthopaedic surgery, offering an introductory text to young engineers entering the field, as well as a reference for medical staff who will benefit from an understanding of the materials and methods used in their design, engineering and manufacture.
This book provides a thought-provoking guide to conducting collaborative arts-based research. Focusing on ways that social inquiry might be conducted with marginalised groups to promote social justice, the text offers chapters on: * Telling 'alternative' stories through a variety of methods from crafts to digital film * Visual and metaphorical approaches to social research including photography, art and poetry * Performative methods that include drama, dance, music and performance art Foster introduces relevant methodological debates, giving a context for understanding when arts-based research can be a fruitful approach to take and outlining a convincing rationale for using the arts as a way of understanding and representing the social world. The book also suggests a range of alternative criteria for evaluating the quality of arts-based research. Illustrative examples from around the world are used throughout the book and an extended case study is included that focuses on Foster's own collaborative arts-based research. With their emphasis on the value of participative research and social justice, arts-based methodologies are becoming increasingly popular in health and social research. This is the ideal text for anyone looking to introduce arts-based methods into their research practice.
