  • The Biostatistics Cookbookby S. Michelson; T. Schofield

    Springer Netherlands 2007; US$ 105.23

    We live in a very uncertain world. Variation surrounds our work. There is noise in our experiments, in our measurements, and in our test subjects. From all these sources of uncertainty and variation, we try to extract a coherent picture of very complex and sometimes dynamic, biological and chemical processes. In fact, one of our major challenges is... more...

In a sense, this book supplements conventional textbooks on quantum mechanics by including the theory of irreversibilities.... more...

  • Annual Reports in Combinatorial Chemistry and Molecular Diversityby W.H. Moos; M.R. Pavia; B.K. Kay; Andrew D. Ellington

    Springer Netherlands 1997; US$ 198.77

    Combinatorial chemistry and molecular diversity approaches to scientific inquiry and novel product R&D have exploded in the 1990s!
