This Very Short Introduction explores the science of sound and its nature, hearing and harmony. Considering sound we can´t hear, the author also covers different sound worlds, as well as noise and its reduction.
Written by world-renowned authorities on mechanics, this classic ranges from theoretical explanations of 2- and 3-D stress and strain to practical applications such as torsion, bending, and thermal stress. 1961 edition.
In ´´The End of Certainty´´, world-renowned chemist Ilya Prigogine draws together probability and certainty, Einstein and Shakespeare, and chaos and complexity to explain why our fundamental beliefs about time are wrong. Prigogine´s work formulates a groundbreaking link between instability and chaos and the evolutionary framework in which we exist. Illustrations. Glossary.
This book introduces and reviews all of the currently available methods being used for computational electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis, from the fundamentals through to the state-of-the-art. The aim of the book is to help biomedical engineers and medical doctors who use EEG to better understand the methods and applications of computational EEG analysis from a single, well-organized resource. Following a brief introduction to the principles of EEG and acquisition techniques, the book is divided into two main sections. The first of these covers analysis methods, beginning with preprocessing, and then describing EEG spectral analysis, event-related potential analysis, source imaging and multimodal neuroimaging, and functional connectivity analysis. The following section covers application of EEG analysis to specific fields, including the diagnosis of psychiatric diseases and neurological disorders, brain-computer interfacing, and social neuroscience. Aimed at practicing medical specialists, engineers, researchers and advanced students, the book features contributions from world-renowned biomedical engineers working across a broad spectrum of computational EEG analysis techniques and EEG applications.
