Описание: This treatise explores the relevance of biological evolution to the study of behaviour. It argues that the study of human social behaviour must take into consideration the physiology, biochemistry and social mechanisms of behaviour, in addition to the evolution of behavioural traits.

Описание: Analog Optical Links presents the basis for the design of analog links. Following an introductory chapter, there is a chapter devoted to the development of the small signal models for common electro-optical components used in both direct and external modulation. However this is not a device book, so the theory of their operation is discussed only insofar as it is helpful in understanding the small signal models that result. These device models are then combined to form a complete link. With these analytical tools in place, a chapter is devoted to examining in detail each of the four primary link parameters; gain, bandwidth, noise figure and dynamic range. Of particular interest is the inter-relation between device and link parameters. A final chapter explores some of the trade offs among the primary link parameters.
Описание: An AHA Press/Jossey-Bass ResourceUntapped Options is an invaluable resource for health care leaders who want to help their organizations succeed. Bea Northcott and Janette Helm, experts in the field of health care management, have created a practical approach that explores how human resources and marketing managers can combine forces and work together to create mission, vision, and values statements that will drive a common strategy to organizational excellence. Step-by-step, Northcott and Helm show how to implement this innovative approach that, once in place, will contain costs, bolster employee satisfaction and productivity, and increase customer satisfaction.
Описание: This book assembles current theoretical contributions to monetary theory, banking and finance. The papers published in this collection span a wide variety of themes, from monetary policy to the optimal design of financial systems, from the study of the causes of financial crises to payment systems design. Thereby, the book serves as a useful reference to all researchers interested in the study of financial systems and monetary economics. The papers contribute to two strands of literature: A first group of papers focuses on topics related to the optimality of financial mechanisms, banking regulation, financial crises, financial fragility, and payment systems. A second group of papers is broadly concerned with the efficiency of the decentralized monetary solution in economies characterized by equilibrium heterogeneity.
Описание: Mesopotamian mathematics is known from a great number of cuneiform texts, most of them Old Babylonian, some Late Babylonian or pre-Old-Babylonian, and
has been intensively studied during the last couple of decades. In contrast to this Egyptian mathematics is known from only a small number of papyrus texts, and the few books and
papers that have been written about Egyptian mathematical papyri have mostly reiterated the same old presentations and interpretations of the texts. In this book, it is shown that the
methods developed by the author for the close study of mathematical cuneiform texts can also be successfully applied to all kinds of Egyptian mathematical texts, hieratic, demotic, or
At the same time, comparisons of a large number of individual Egyptian mathematical exercises with Babylonian parallels yield many new insights into the
nature of Egyptian mathematics and show that Egyptian and Babylonian mathematics display greater similarities than expected.
Описание: The Halletts` investigation differs from anything that has been written about the relationship between Thomas More and William Shakespeare in that it approaches the subject from a dramaturgical point of view. This book defines, in specific terms, what Shakespeare learned from his study of More`s History and how he learned it.
Описание: With the world and its structures becoming ever more complex, and the nature of future employment becoming ever more unpredictable, the notion of ‘cognitive flexibility’ has a high profile in educational and psychological debate. The contributions in this volume analyze the nature of cognitive flexibility, as well as the impact of different types of beliefs on cognitive flexibility. Making adequate decisions requires considering input from a variety of continuously evolving sources rather than adhering to predetermined procedures. Adopting a position in a debate necessitates the critical evaluation of different alternatives, while solving a problem entails selecting appropriate problem-solving strategies. Meanwhile, studying requires students to integrate a range of interventions, and treating a patient involves making a differential diagnosis. The common factor, cognitive flexibility, lies at the core of effective functioning in complex, domain-specific environments. Cognitive flexibility can be described as the disposition to consider diverse information elements while deciding on how to solve a problem or to execute a learning-related task in a variety of domains. The concept of ‘disposition’ implies that individuals will not always demonstrate cognitive flexibility even if they are in principle able to act in a cognitively flexible way. The notion does not require that alternatives are always deliberately considered, which is why this volume’s tandem discussion of beliefs is key element of the discussion. Beliefs play a central role in cognitive flexibility and relate to what individuals consider to be important, valid and/or true. Of specific interest is the relationship between epistemological beliefs and cognitive flexibility, especially as a particular subset of epistemological beliefs seems to be a prerequisite to a cognitively flexible disposition.
This book examines return mobilities to and from ancestral homelands of the second generation and beyond. It presents cutting-edge empirical research framed within the mobilities, transnational and return migration/diaspora paradigms on a trans/local and global scale. The book is unique in presenting not only a variety of return movements, including short-term visits and longer-term return migrations, but also circulatory movements within transnational social fields while engaging with notions of 'home', belonging, identity and generation. The individual contributions range widely over different ethnic, national, regional and global settings, including Europe, North America, the Caribbean, the Gulf and Africa. The result is a remapping of the conceptualisation of 'diaspora' and of the role of successive generations in the diasporic experience, as well as a nuancing of the concepts of return migration and transnationalism by their extension to the second and subsequent generations of 'immigrants'.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Mobilities.
