Stochastic dynamics of reacting biomolecules

This can be a ebook in regards to the actual procedures in reacting advanced molecules, fairly biomolecules. some time past decade scientists from diverse fields reminiscent of medication, biology, chemistry and physics have accrued an immense volume of knowledge in regards to the constitution, dynamics and functioning of biomolecules.

Lectures on Stochastic Programming: Modeling and Theory

Optimization difficulties regarding stochastic versions ensue in just about all parts of technological know-how and engineering, resembling telecommunications, drugs, and finance. Their life compels a necessity for rigorous methods of formulating, studying, and fixing such difficulties. This publication specializes in optimization difficulties concerning doubtful parameters and covers the theoretical foundations and up to date advances in parts the place stochastic versions can be found.

Damage and Fracture of Disordered Materials

The significant goal of this e-book is to narrate the random distributions of defects and fabric power at the microscopic scale with the deformation and residual power of fabrics at the macroscopic scale. to arrive this aim the authors thought of experimental, analytical and computational versions on atomic, microscopic and macroscopic scales.
