Brexit and Internal Security: Political and Legal Concerns on the Future UK-EU Relationship

Brexit and Internal Security: Political and Legal Concerns on the Future UK-EU Relationship by Helena Carrapico
English | PDF | 2019 | 196 Pages | ISBN : 303004193X | 2.17 MB

This book explores the viability of future UK-EU internal security arrangements in light of Brexit, including their impact on the UK’s and the EU’s security and international standings. The authors discuss on-going negotiations and address the main political and legal concerns of possible future arrangements. As the UK prepares to leave the EU, the country is faced with having to develop new cooperation models with its neighbours to fight growing transnational security threats, as well as new strategies to maintain its leading role as an international security actor. In exploring these issues, the book aims to contribute to the general knowledge on the risks and opportunities associated with the disentanglement of the UK from European internal security cooperation; to shed more light on the debates surrounding the negotiations; and to inform the policy discussions that form the basis of proposed cooperation models and that are likely to significantly shape the future UK-EU security relationship.

From Crisis to Crisis: The Transformation of Merchant Banking, 1914–1939 by Brian O'Sullivan
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 422 Pages | ISBN : 3319966979 | 8.32 MB

From Crisis to Crisis examines the impact of the harsh conditions of the interwar economy on the British merchant banks. The financial crises of 1914 and 1931 are assessed using primary sources. The competitive threats, including the rise of New York as a rival financial centre, are considered. It challenges alleged special treatment and provides fresh perspectives on the interwar rationalisation of industry.

Quantum Mechanics for Pedestrians 2: Applications and Extensions, Second Edition

Quantum Mechanics for Pedestrians 2: Applications and Extensions, Second Edition by Jochen Pade
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 587 Pages | ISBN : 303000466X | 43.13 MB

This book, the second in a two-volume set, provides an introduction to the basics of (mainly) non-relativistic quantum mechanics. While the first volume addresses the basic principles, this second volume discusses applications and extensions to more complex problems. In addition to topics dealt with in traditional quantum mechanics texts, such as symmetries or many-body problems, it also treats issues of current interest such as entanglement, Bell’s inequality, decoherence and various aspects of quantum information in detail. Furthermore, questions concerning the basis of quantum mechanics and epistemological issues which are relevant e.g. to the realism debate are discussed explicitly. A chapter on the interpretations of quantum mechanics rounds out the book.

Productivity and Efficiency Analysis: An Economic Approach to Measuring and Explaining Managerial Performance

Productivity and Efficiency Analysis: An Economic Approach to Measuring and Explaining Managerial Performance by Christopher J. O'Donnell
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 434 Pages | ISBN : 9811329826 | 26.15 MB

This book provides a coherent description of the main concepts and statistical methods used to analyse economic performance. The focus is on measures of performance that are of practical relevance to policy makers. Most, if not all, of these measures can be viewed as measures of productivity and/or efficiency. Linking fields as diverse as index number theory, data envelopment analysis and stochastic frontier analysis, the book explains how to compute measures of input and output quantity change that are consistent with measurement theory.

Electrochemical Biosensor: Point-of-Care for Early Detection of Bone Loss

Electrochemical Biosensor: Point-of-Care for Early Detection of Bone Loss by Nasrin Afsarimanesh
English | PDF,EPUB | 2019 | 114 Pages | ISBN : 3030037053 | 23.76 MB

This book presents the design of a robust, portable and low-cost PoC sensing system for the early detection of bone loss. The device can measure the level of CTx-I – one of the most sensitive biochemical markers of bone resorption – in serum and transmit the measured value to an IoT-based cloud server. The selectivity of the sensing system to CTx-I has been achieved by coating the sensor with artificial antibodies, prepared by means of molecular imprinting technology. Explaining all aspects of the system’s development in detail, the book will be of great interest to all engineers, researchers and scientists whose work involves the development of electrochemical sensors and PoC devices.

Employee Voice at Work

Employee Voice at Work by Peter Holland
English | PDF | 2019 | 242 Pages | ISBN : 9811328196 | 3.16 MB

This book addresses the contemporary aspects of employee voice through theoretical and practical analysis. In addition to case studies of employee voice in the workplace, it also looks at emerging forms of voice associated with the use of technology such as social media. Because of the breadth of the concept of employee voice, the focus of the book lends itself to an international perspective on employment relations and human resources management – analyses and experiences drawn from one country will be usefully considered or applied in relation to others.

Neuropsychodynamic Psychiatry by Heinz Boeker
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 630 Pages | ISBN : 3319751115 | 21.39 MB

This book presents a comprehensive neuropsychodynamic strategy for treating psychiatric disorders. Rather than pursuing an exclusively biological, psychological, or psychodynamic approach, it offers a methodology that links all three aspects in a unifying, integrative model. Central to this approach is the view of the brain as a bio-psychosocial organ in a neuro-ecological model, rather than the purely neuronal model often presupposed in current neuroscience and psychiatry.
