"Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications" provides a clear, balanced and modern introduction to the subject. Written with the student's background and ability in mind the book takes an innovative approach to quantum mechanics by combining the essential elements of the theory with the practical applications: it is therefore both a textbook and a problem solving book in one self-contained volume. Carefully structured, the book starts with the experimental basis of quantum mechanics and then discusses its mathematical tools. Subsequent chapters cover the formal foundations of the subject, the exact solutions of the Schrodinger equation for one and three dimensional potentials, time-independent and time-dependent approximation methods, and finally, the theory of scattering.
The text is richly illustrated throughout with many worked examples and numerous problems with step-by-step solutions designed to help the reader master the machinery of quantum mechanics. The new edition has been completely updated and a solutions manual is available on request.Suitable for senior undergradutate courses and graduate courses.
Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) in the workplace is not only a strategic priority in terms of moral or social responsibility, it is also an obligation regulated and governed by law. A well-designed manufacturing process (the operations system) must be both productive and safe, without potential physical, emotional and mental health risks. OSH management has become a very complex multi-functional science within operations management and total quality management (TQM). It focuses on a non-legalistic approach whereby the organisational culture fosters spontaneous OSH and a high quality of work life. This is done by using a TQM approach, based on a functional TQM model.
An entrepreneur is different from a manager of a small business in many respects, but largely in attitude and approach. And the right approach hinges on appropriate entrepreneurial skills.

Atkins' Physical Chemistry epitomises the benchmark of achievement for a chemistry degree throughout the world. Its broad coverage, concise explanations, and robust mathematical support are clearly presented in an engaging style to furnish students with a solid foundation in the subject. In this ninth edition the authors continue to refine their presentation of physical chemistry. The coverage of introductory topics is streamlined, and the addition of a new fundamentals chapter provides students with an overview of key principles on which the subject is based. The text includes increased coverage of computational chemistry and additional contextual examples of materials chemistry throughout, mirroring the current needs of today's students and lecturers. Mathematics remains an intrinsic yet challenging part of physical chemistry. Extensive mathematical support, including a 'Checklist of key equations' at the end of every chapter, and 'Mathematical background' sections containing worked examples and self-tests, empower students to overcome any barriers to understanding that grasping the mathematical content might present. These features help to ensure the reader can master the subject without a need to sacrifice the rigour and depth of the mathematical content. The pedagogical framework, which is a hallmark of the authors' writing, has been further strengthened. New 'Key points' provide summaries of the main take-home messages of each section and enable students to gain an overview of the topic before tackling it in depth; 'Brief illustrations' give a concise insight into how a particular mathematical concept is applied in practice, providing students with the opportunity to contextualise their learning. All these exciting new features and innovations are presented within a refreshed full colour text design, to stimulate and engage students yet further. The Online Resource Centre contains Living Graphs, illustrations from the book, and web links. An Instructor's Solutions Manual (free to adopters) and a Student's Solutions Manual are also available. Access to the Physical Chemistry eBook is also included with the purchase of the printed text. Offering enhanced functionality, including notetaking and highlighting, it also includes access to 'Explorations in Physical Chemistry', which contains interactive Excel worksheets and exercises related to the Living Graphs, allowing students to visualise, actively explore and test their understanding of the subject.

Discover a structured, applied approach to behavioral finance with the first academic text of its kind--Ackert/Deaves' BEHAVIORAL FINANCE: PSYCHOLOGY, DECISION MAKING, AND MARKETS. This comprehensive text--ideal for today's behavioral finance elective--links finance theory and practice to human behavior. The book begins by building upon the established, conventional principles of finance before moving into psychological principles of behavioral finance, including heuristics and biases, overconfidence, emotion and social forces. Readers learn how human behavior influences the decisions of individual investors and professional finance practitioners, managers, and markets. The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. Readers see, first-hand, the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. This book spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used by practitioners today. Readers utilize theory and applications in every chapter with a wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments that reinforce the book's applied approach.

The advent of the electronic age has brought many changes to the world of marketing and sales. New methods of selling and communicating with customers are invented virtually on a daily basis. And the use of social media is placing new demands on marketers and sales managers around the world. Despite this upheaval, retailers and marketers believe that personal selling as practised over the past decades is here to stay - although it should be adapted to incorporate technological developments. There will however always be a place for the age-old art of person-to-person communication between a salesperson and a prospective customer. In this third edition of Personal Selling, the authors outline the key steps in the selling process that leads to a successful sale, from prospecting for a sale to the follow-up once the sale has been completed. In addition, the book seeks to explain the role and place of personal selling, the impact it has on the economy, and how it ties in with marketing. The importance of communication in the act of selling, as well as different approaches and sales presentation methods, are explained and clarified, and a comprehensive discussion on how sales people should manage themselves and their time is included.
