High Performance Liquid Chromatography Edited by Phyllis Brown and Richard Hartwick This contributed volume is designed to consolidate the basic theories of chromatography along with the more exciting developments in the field. This monograph addresses some questions that concern researchers in separation science, including: what is the current state of the art in liquid chromatography; has the development of liquid chromatography plateaued; if so, what new methods will take its place or complement it; and if not, where will the new frontiers be and what direction will liquid chromatography take? 1989 (0 471-84506-X) 688 pp. Quantitative Structure-Chromatographic Retention Relationships R. Kaliszan Written by a pioneer in the field, this book extends and updates research on quantitative structure retention relationships by consolidating and critically reviewing the extensive literature on the subject, while also providing the basic theoretical and practical information required in all investigations involving chromatography, analytical chemistry, biochemistry, and pharmaceutical research. Among the topics covered are the nature of chromatographic interactions, molecular interpretation of distribution processes in chromatography, topological indices as retention descriptors, and multiparameter structure-chromatographic retention relationships. 1987 (0 471-85983-4) 303 pp. Detectors for Liquid Chromatography Edited by Edward S. Yeung With its singular coverage of this fast-growing field, Detectors for Liquid Chromatography presents the state of the art in this subject area. It offers a comprehensive examination of the basic principles behind the detector response, instrumentation, and selected applications for comparison and evaluation of potential. Specifically, topics given in-depth coverage include polarimetric, indirect absorbance, refractive index detectors, absorption detectors for HPLC, FTIR and fluorometric detection, detection based on electrical and electromechanical measurements, and mass spectroscopy as an on-line detector for HPLC. 1986 (0 471-82169-1) 366 pp.
Computational Optimization: A Tribute to Olvi Mangasarian serves as an excellent reference, providing insight into some of the most challenging research issues in the field.
A presentation of general results for discussing local optimality and computation of the expansion of value function and approximate solution of optimization problems, followed by their application to various fields, from physics to economics. The book is thus an opportunity for popularizing these techniques among researchers involved in other sciences, including users of optimization in a wide sense, in mechanics, physics, statistics, finance and economics. Of use to research professionals, including graduate students at an advanced level.
With indispensable advice for students from all social science backgrounds, this handbook provides the core conceptual and practical skills to embark on succesful research. The organization of the book reflects the knowledge that is required in order to become a competent and effective researcher. It follows the life-cycle of the research project: it begins with a discussion of ethical and philosphical issues; presents guides to both quantitative and qualitative data collection and analysis; provides help on using computers in research; and includes advice on how to write up and present a research project. Based on the UK Economic and Social Research Council advice on the training which students should undertake in preparation for postgraduate research, this book will be invaluable for all beginning researchers.
This book will present the papers delivered at the first U.S. conference devoted exclusively to global optimization and will thus provide valuable insights into the significant research on the topic that has been emerging during recent years. Held at Princeton University in May 1991, the conference brought together an interdisciplinary group of the most active developers of algorithms for global optimization in order to focus the attention of the mathematical programming community on the unsolved problems and diverse applications of this field. The main subjects addressed at the conference were advances in deterministic and stochastic methods for global optimization, parallel algorithms for global optimization problems, and applications of global optimization. Although global optimization is primarily a mathematical problem, it is relevant to several other disciplines, including computer science, applied mathematics, physical chemistry, molecular biology, statistics, physics, engineering, operations research, communication theory, and economics. Global optimization problems originate from a wide variety of mathematical models of real-world systems. Some of its applications are allocation and location problems and VLSI and data-base design problems.
