Horowitz, Asher
Asher Horowitz explores the philosophies of Levinas and the critical theorists of the Frankfurt School, demonstrating the ways in which their works diverge from and complement each other. As Horowitz explains, the manner in which these thinkers are here related to each other resembles Adorno's suggestion, or even program, for thinking in constellations. Demonstrating an authoritative command of both the thinkers themselves - including Benjamin, Horkheimer, and Marcuse - and the various philosophical contexts (German idealism, phenomenology, Marxism, psychoanalysis) in which they are embedded, Horowitz offers a politically thoughtful and philosophically provocative analysis based on a wide range of texts and a critical reconstruction and confrontation between the positions.While a few studies have previously addressed the philosophical relationship between Levinas and Adorno, in particular, "Ethics at a Standstill" is unique in arguing that each of these ways of thinking calls forth from the other, respectively, a social-critical and ethical supplement that is insufficiently developed in their own work. 404pp.

Maas, Marnix C.
Molecular imaging techniques enable the visualization of biological processes in living organisms. These techniques rely on synthetic biomolecules ('tracers') that specifically target a physiological process of interest without significantly disturbing it, and that poses some property which allows them to be detected externally. If the detectable property is radioactivity, the molecules are referred to as radiotracers, and the imaging technique is referred to as nuclear imaging. The aims of the research presented in this work are to determine the spatial resolution experimentally, the energy resolution and time resolution attainable with monolithic scintillator detectors, to analyze the dependence of these detector properties on physical quantities such as the scintillator light yield, the APD gain and the noise characteristics of the front-end electronics, and to predict the performance of a small animal PET system based on these detectors. The research presented in this publication is primarily based on experimental work on prototype detector modules. Simulation studies have been carried out in parallel; these are presented elsewhere. Some of the results of these simulation studies are also used in this work. 168pp. N.B. Small crease to bottom corner of rear cover.

Tsuji,Gordon Y.,Hoogenboom,Gerrit and Thornton,Philip K. Editors
This volume describes the outputs of the IBSNAT network, including topics on data standards and the minimum data set, crop simulation models of major food crops, and application programs to assess risk resulting from implementation of different management options and strategies. These outputs were integrated into a single portable and functional software product referred to as DSSAT (Decision Support System for Agrotechnology Transfer). Complete descriptions of the CERES, CROPGRO, SUBSTOR, and CROPSIM models in DSSAT are presented here by their developers. Applications of these models and DSSAT to explore options and outcomes, ranging from irrigation and fertilizer management at the plot level, to global climate change studies at the country level, are presented by users of the systems approach to agricultural production and development in both developing and more developed countries. Slight fading base spine.398pp.
