"This cutting-edge volume provides a detailed look at the two main aspects of systems biology: the design of sophisticated experimental methods and the development of complex models to analyze the data. Focusing on methods that are being used to solve current problems in biomedical science and engineering, this comprehensive, richly illustrated resource shows you how to: design of state-of-the art methods for analyzing biological systems Implement experimental approaches for investigating cellular behavior in health and disease; use algorithms and modeling techniques for quantitatively describing biomedical problems; and integrate experimental and computational approaches for a more complete view of biological systems." --Book Jacket.
Due to the unprecedented growth in wireless applications over the past decade, development of low-cost solutions for RF and microwave communication systems has become of great importance. This practical new book is the first comprehensive treatment of lumped elements, which are playing a critical role in the development of the circuits that make these cost-effective systems possible. The books offers you an in-depth understanding of the different types of RF and microwave circuit elements, including inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, via holes, airbridges, and crossovers.
This newly revised edition offers a comprehensive and current treatment of the subject and includes expanded derivations and problem sets, helping to make the material even more accessible and easier to master.
As magnetic stripe cards are being replaced by chip cards that offer consumers and business greater protection against fraud, a new standard for this technology is being introduced by Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV). This volume presents a comprehensive overview of the EMV chip solution and explains how this technology provides a chip migration path, where interoperability plays a central role in the business model. The work offers an understanding of the security problems associated with magnetic stripe cards, and presents the business case for chip migration. Moreover, it explains the implementation of multi-application selection mechanisms in EMV chip cards and terminals, and shows you how to design a multi-application EMV chip card layout.
