Succeeding in the financial markets requires a mastery of many
disciplines. Mastery begins with understanding the actors, rules,
and dynamics, and the ways in which they interact. This volume, the
last of a 4-volume series, presents a broad perspective on key
subjects such as regulation and compliance, risk and ways to
mitigate it, and the directions in which trading markets might
evolve. Like its predecessors, it presents alternative versions of
the future: will the sell side or buy side come to dominate, for
example, and how might new technologies shape global markets?
Mastery of the financial markets begins with its authoritative,
heavily illustrated presentation.
Unlike books currently on the market, this book attempts to satisfy
two goals: combine circuits and electronics into a single, unified
treatment, and establish a strong connection with the contemporary
world of digital systems. It will introduce a new way of looking
not only at the treatment of circuits, but also at the treatment of
introductory coursework in engineering in general.
This essential bundle featuring three definitive titles on wireless networking provides an in-depth, exhaustive, and invaluable asset to anyone working or studying in this rapidly evolving field.

Advanced PIC Microcontroller Projects in C is the ONLY project book devoted to the PIC 18 series. Packed with tried and tested hands-on projects, it is an essential guide for anyone wanting to develop more advanced applications using the 18F series. Bundled together for the firs time, this is the ideal way to learn how to create more powerful and cutting edge PIC designs, as quickly and as cheaply as possible.
Recent advances in the scientific understanding of the human mind
and brain along with the emphases on evidence-based practice and
competency-based education are creating increasing pressures to
update some of the traditional approaches to structuring and
organizing education and practice in the field. There have also
been many calls in recent years for a unified approach to
conceptualizing professional practice in psychology. This book
examines whether there exists a unified conceptual framework for
the field that is firmly based on current scientific understanding
regarding human development and functioning, that applies across
all the clinical populations and practice areas within the field,
and that would also help integrate professional psychology more
fully into health care and the sciences generally.
In the years since its first publication, "Paxinos and
Franklin's the Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates" has received
virtually universal acceptance in neuroscience as the authoritative
source for stereotaxic coordinates and delineations. This atlas is

Coordinates," the most cited publication in neuroscience. The
completely revised and updated 4e of "Paxinos and Franklin's the
Mouse Brain in Stereotaxic Coordinates" features high-quality color
plates scanned by the renowned microscopy unit of the Allen
Institute for Brain Science. Constructed by the leaders in
neuroanatomical atlas development, the new edition will maintain
the position of the atlas as an indispensable resource for
scientists working on the mouse brain.
Design and Evaluation of Physical Security Systems, 2e, includes
updated references to security expectations and changes since 9/11.

Dental defects may be the physical expression of genetic
defects, and so they can often be seen in a variety of syndromes
associated with malformations of organs. However, dental defects
are often not recognized, identified, nor characterised despite
representing a possible diagnostic sign for an undiagnosed
condition. This book addresses this gap by providing an
understanding of dental genetics and its developmental biology
counterpart. With approximately seventy well-illustrated examples,
the authors present the clinical oro-facial manifestations
accompanying various syndromes, providing the necessary knowledge
for diagnostic purposes, as well as giving insight into recent
development for each specific condition. The clarity and format of
this book make it an ideal support guide both in the clinic and
while conducting research.

positioning next to microscopes and cryotomes.
The Mediterranean region contains a diverse and interesting
climate ranging from areas with permanent glaciers to areas of
subtropical, semiarid regions. The region is potentially sensitive
to climate change and its progress has environmental, social, and
economic implications within and beyond the region. Produced by the
Mediterranean Climate Variability and Predictability Research
Networking Project, this book reviews the evolution of the
Mediterranean climate over the past two millennia with projections
further into the twenty-first century as well as examining in
detail various aspects of the Mediterranean region s climate
including evolution, atmospheric variables, and oceanic and land
elements. Integrated with this, the book also considers the social
and economic problems or vulnerabilities associated with the
region. Written and reviewed by multiple researchers to ensure a
high level of information presented clearly, Mediterranean Climate
Variables will be an invaluable source of information for
geologists, oceanographers, and anyone interested in learning more
about the Mediterranean climate.

Encompassing over fifty years of research, Professor Gotoh
addresses the correlation function of spatial structures and the
statistical geometry of random particle assemblies. In this book
morphological study is formed into random particle assemblies to
which various mathematics are applied such as correlation function,
radial distribution function and statistical geometry. This leads
to the general comparison between the thermodynamic state such as
gases and liquids and the random particle assemblies. Although
structures of molecular configurations change at every moment due
to thermal vibration, liquids can be regarded as random packing of
particles. Similarly, gaseous states correspond to particle
dispersion. If physical and chemical properties are taken away from
the subject, the remainder is the structure itself. Hence, the
structural study is ubiquitous and of fundamental importance. This
book will prove useful to chemical engineers working on powder
technology as well as mathematicians interested in learning more
about the subject.
