The few basic oncology textbooks are more often than not outdated. unmarried papers in really expert journals are informative yet seldom entire; those are extra frequently initial experiences on a truly constrained variety of sufferers. convinced basic journals fre­ quently submit stable in-depth studies of melanoma issues, and released sym­ posium lectures are frequently the simplest overviews to be had. regrettably, those experiences and supplementations seem sporadically, and the reader can by no means determine while a subject matter of specific curiosity may be lined. melanoma remedy and study is a chain of authoritative volumes which target to fulfill this want. it's an try and determine a serious mass of oncology literature protecting almost all oncology subject matters, revised usually to maintain the insurance brand new, simply on hand on a unmarried library shelf or by way of a unmarried own subscription. now we have approached the matter within the following style. First, via di­ viding the oncology literature into particular subdivisions corresponding to lung melanoma, genitourinary melanoma, pediatric oncology, and so on. moment, through asking eminent experts in each one of those components to edit a quantity at the particular subject on an annual or biannual foundation. each one subject and tumor style is roofed in a quantity showing usually and predictably, discussing present analysis, staging, markers, all different types of remedy modalities, simple biology, and more.

Sustainability Assessment: Einsatz der Fuzzy Logic zur by Rupert J. Baumgartner (auth.)

By Rupert J. Baumgartner (auth.)

Unternehmen stehen vor der Herausforderung, ihre Aktivitäten sowohl unter ökologischen als auch unter ökonomischen Gesichtspunkten verantwortungsbewusst und zukunftsfähig zu gestalten. Allerdings werden die ökologischen Auswirkungen von Produkten, Dienstleistungen und Technologien bislang kaum in Führungs- und Zielsystemen berücksichtigt. Wettbewerbschancen und Innovationspotenziale, die auf einer adäquaten Berücksichtigung ökologischer Fragen beruhen, können daher nur unzureichend genutzt werden.

Um in unternehmensstrategische Entscheidungen ökologische und ökonomische Anforderungen angemessen einbeziehen zu können, entwickelt Rupert J. Baumgartner ein Modell, welches ökologische Aspekte mit einem quantitativen Bewertungsverfahren und ökonomische Aspekte mit Methoden der Wirtschaftlichkeitsrechnung beurteilt und auf der foundation der Fuzzy common sense zu einer Gesamtbewertung zusammenführt. Die Anwendung der Fuzzy common sense bietet die Möglichkeit, Entscheidungssituationen flexibel und entsprechend den Präferenzen des Anwenders zu modellieren. Der Vorteil dieses Ansatzes liegt in einer umfassenden und strukturierten Berücksichtigung ökologischer Aspekte, womit auf operativer und strategischer Ebene concepts- und Verbesserungspotenziale erkannt und umgesetzt werden können. Es erfolgt dabei eine klare Ausrichtung am Konzept des Sustainable improvement, welches dadurch in das unternehmerische Entscheidungsverhalten integriert werden kann. Die Anwendung des Modells wird am Beispiel eines Innovationsprojektes aus der Automobilzulieferindustrie demonstriert.
Die Arbeit wurde mit dem Umweltforschungspreis 2003 des Industrieunternehmens Voestalpine AG ausgezeichnet.

Logic and Programming by Michel Parent, Claude Laurgeau (auth.)

By Michel Parent, Claude Laurgeau (auth.)

In distinction to the easy ease with which humans keep an eye on their limbs, the layout of controllers for robot manipulator hands is an in depth, meticulous company. automobiles controlling the hands have to be all started and stopped at simply the appropriate second in order that the functionality demanded through the consumer could be completed on the finish of a classy manoeuvre. And but, an analogous consumer needs to precise the duty for the robotic within the least difficult attainable phrases regardless of the minute information of keep an eye on sequences that his job calls for. it's the layout of such inter­ faces among guy and laptop that's the topic of trus quantity. mother or father and Laurgeau boost the topic in a right away and logical order. They first clarify the rules of maximal attempt keep watch over which not just make sure that cars are pushed to supply excessive accuracy, but in addition that this could be performed with the least waste of strength and within the shortest attainable time. during this context, they describe the operation of pneumatic logical units that make fast judgements at strength degrees that exceed, through numerous orders, those who will be accomplished with digital units. They do so when holding the reader conscious of the logical ideas which are fascinated with the layout of grasp regulate devices: the units accountable for acceptable activities being taken as a functionality of time.
