Electromagnetics for Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Stephen E. Russek, Karl F. Stupic, Joshua R. Biller, Michael A. Boss, Kathryn E. Keenan, Elizabeth Mirowski
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is based on radio frequency (RF) interrogation of the human body at frequencies between 40 MHz to 300 MHz. An RF transmitter

Chalcogenide Topological Insulators

Practical Guidelines to 13C-based NMR Metabolomics

Arthur S. Edison, Adrien Le Guennec, Frank Delaglio, Eriks Kupce
We present an overview of 13C-based NMR metabolomics. At first glance, the low sensitivity of 13C relative to 1H NMR might seem like too great an obstacle to

Compositional Models for Complex Systems

Spencer J. Breiner, Ram D. Sriram, Eswaran Subrahmanian
In this chapter we argue for the use of representations from category theory to support better models for complex systems, and provide an example of such an


Thomas J. Bruno, Paris D. Svoronos
The following table provides some comparative data for interpretation of results from the more common detectors applied to high-performance liquid

Web Microanalysis of Big Image Data

Peter Bajcsy, Joe Chalfoun, Mylene H. Simon
This book looks at the increasing interest in running microscopy processing algorithms on big image data by presenting the theoretical and architectural

Accelerated Testing: Challenges and Opportunities.

Christopher C. White, Donald L. Hunston
Materials exposed to outdoor weathering will change properties. Currently there are no test methods that result in predictions for those materials. This lack of

Attribute Based Access Control

Chung Tong Hu, David F. Ferraiolo, Ramaswamy Chandramouli, David R. Kuhn
Until now, ABAC research has been documented in hundreds of research papers, but not consolidated in book form. This book explains ABAC's history and model
