We developed Micro SAINT computational networks for numerical integration and solving initial value problems for linear and nonlinear first- and second-order ordinary differential equations, as well as for systems of differential equations. These Micro SAINT computer programs are written with a user friendly approach where the user will be required to supply the input information and the functional form(s) of the function(s) in the function library section of Micro SAINT without any changes in the main programs. These computational modules could be used as subnetworks in modeling psychophysiological and biomedical problems of interest in naval aerospace medical research. For example, Micro SAINT developed models can be used by staff medical officers to predict psychophysiological performance of naval aircrew personnel under sustained operational work schedules. (KR).
This series is world-renowned as the leading compilation of current reviews of this vast field. Internationally acclaimed for more than forty years, The Alkaloids: Chemistry and Biology, founded by the late Professor R.H.F. Manske, continues to provide outstanding coverage of this rapidly expanding field. Each volume provides, through its distinguished authors, up-to-date and detailed coverage of particular classes or sources of alkaloids. * Up-to-date reviews on a large and very important group of natural products from both a chemical and biological perspective. * Comprehensive dynamic reviews written by the leading authors in the respective fields. * Broader coverage than before on the biological aspects.
Nowhere has the impact of ultrasonography been more dramatic than in reproductive medicine, particularly in the diagnosis of female and male infertility, the management of assisted reproductive procedures and the monitoring of early pregnancy. This authoritative textbook encompasses the complete role of ultrasonography in the evaluation of infertility and assisted reproduction. Covering every indication for ultrasonography in assisted reproductive technology, this will prove an invaluable resource in the evaluation of the infertile patient and optimization of the outcome of treatment. The interpretation of images to improve fertility and reproductive success is emphasized throughout. Ultrasonography in Reproductive Medicine and Infertility is essential reading for clinicians working both in IVF clinics and in office practice. It will be particularly useful to gynecologists, infertility specialists, ultrasonographers and radiologists working in reproductive endocrinology and infertility, assisted reproductive technology, ultrasonography and radiology.
Now available in paperback for the first time this edition of the World Encyclopedia of Contemporary Theatre series examines theatrical developments in Africa since 1945. Entries on thirty-two African countries are featured in this volume, preceded by specialist introductory essays on Anglophone Africa, Francophone Africa, History and Culture, Cosmology, Music, Dance, Theatre for Young Audiences and Puppetry. There are also special introductory general essays on African theatre written by Nobel Prize Laureate Wole Soyinka and the outstanding Congolese playwright, Sony Labou Tansi, before his untimely death in 1995. More up-to-date and more wide-ranging than any other publication, this is undoubtedly a major ground-breaking survey of contemporary African theatre.
The Man Who Lost His Shadow tells the story of Yusif Abdul Hamid, an ambitious Cairo journalist, through the eyes of four people: Mabruka, the young peasant girl who marries Yusif’s aging father while being attracted to Yusif; Samia, a minor actress, who Yusif lives with and almost marries but latter rejects; Muhammad Nagi, who Yusif pushes out of his job as newspaper editor after Muhammad marries Samia; and finally Yusif himself, editor-in-chief of the newspaper al-Ayyam, a stranger to himself.
