An approach to a debated rejuvenator (rasayana) of traditional Hindu ayurvedic medicine. It shows that shilajit contains two compounds viz DCPs (dibenzo - a pyrone chromoproteins) and their key nuclear components DBPs (dibenzo - a pyrones).
Essential for students of both undergraduate and postgraduate classes, Modern Plant Physiology addresses new developments in tissue culture, stress physiology, and secondary metabolities. This detailed and comprehensive handbook, written by a renowned figure in botanical education, focuses on many essential concepts, including: the metabolisms of nitrogen, amino acids, protein, fat, and nucleic acid; photosynthesis; photorespiration; hormones; senescence, aging and abscission; photoperiodism; and the physiology of flowering. The text offers tabulated differences between allied processes such as Fluorescence and Phosphorescence, thus providing a clear conception and better understanding of the subject matter.
'Practical Ultrasonics' covers principles, procedures, techniques and applications of one of the most widely used NDT techniques, ultrasonics. Its contents are in line with the syllabi of various international and national bodies under their training and certification schemes.
In recent years, many concepts in mathematics, engineering, computer science, and many other disciplines have been in a sense redefined to incorporate the notion of fuzziness. Designed for graduate students and research scholars, Fuzzy Topology imparts the concepts and recent developments related to the various properties of fuzzy topology. The author first addresses fundamental problems, such as the idea of a fuzzy point and its neighborhood structure and the theory of convergence. He then studies the connection between fuzzy topological spaces and topological spaces and introduces fuzzy continuity and product induced spaces. Chapter Three examines fuzzy nets, fuzzy upper and lower limits, and fuzzy convergence and is followed by a study of fuzzy metric spaces. The treatment then introduces the concept of fuzzy compactness before moving to initial and final topologies and the fuzzy Tychnoff theorem. The final sections of the book cover connectedness, complements, separation axioms, and uniform spaces.
Environmental Pollution: Health and Toxicology offers a comprehensive account of environmental pollution, environmental heath and environmental toxicology. While introducing different types of pollution, it simultaneously describes their effects on ecosystems (ecotoxicology), man, animals and plants. Due emphasis has been given to recently emerging problems viz. indoor air pollution, ground water pollution and solid waste pollution. It incorporates separate chapters on environmental toxicology of heavy metals, pesticides, insecticides and organic solvents. The book is an invaluable resource for those studying environmental pollution, ecology, ecotoxicology, epidemiology, occupational health, public health, environmental chemistry, medicine, environmental engineering and other related disciplines.
Suitable for an introductory course or a second course in Instrumentation, this book includes: software-controlled measurements; time interval measurement when the two events occur arbitrarily, and to indicate the order of occurrence, and a practical set up for the time interval measurement; multi-phase sequence indicator; decibel meter; and more.
