TheexplosivegrowthandthewidespreadaccessibilityoftheWWW has led to a surge of research activity in the area of information retrieval on VI Preface the WWW. The three aspects of web mining follow the taxonomy of the above diagram: Link Analysis, Search engines, and User s web behavior are considered in the unifying approach. The book is organized in three sections as follows: 1. In section I of the book (chapters 2 4) we study Link Analysis within the hubs and authorities framework. Link Analysis is the science of hyperlink structures ranking, which are used to determine the relative authority of a Web page and produce improved algorithms for the ranking of Web search results. We use the HITS Algorithm developed by Kleinberg and we propose to study HITS in a 2-D new space: In-degree and Out Degree variables. After we categorize each web page into a speci?c toplogy we study the impact of each web topology on HITS in the new 2-D space. We describe why HITS does not fare well in almost all the di?erent topologies of web graphs. We also describe the PageRank Algorithm in this new 2-D space."
Despite the different nature of financial engineering and electrical engineering, both areas are intimately connected on a mathematical level. The foundations of financial engineering lie on the statistical analysis of numerical time series and the modeling of the behavior of the financial markets in order to perform predictions and systematically optimize investment strategies. Similarly, the foundations of electrical engineering, for instance, wireless communication systems, lie on statistical signal processing and the modeling of communication channels in order to perform predictions and systematically optimize transmission strategies. Both foundations are the same in disguise. It is often the case in science that the same or very similar methodologies are developed and applied independently in different areas. A Signal Processing Perspective of Financial Engineering is about investment in financial assets treated as a signal processing and optimization problem. It explores such connections and capitalizes on the existing mathematical tools deveIoped in wireless communications and signal processing to solve real-life problems arising in the financial markets in ran-unprecedented way. A Signal Processing Perspective of Financial Engineering provides straightforward and systematic access to financial engineering for researchers in signal processing and communications so that they can understand problems in financial engineering more easily and may even apply signal processing techniques to handle some financial problems.
This volume of Methods in Enzymology looks at Protein Engineering for Therapeutics. The chapters provide an invaluable resource for academics, researchers and students alike. With an international board of authors, this volume is split into sections that cover subjects such as Antibodies, Protein conjugates, Peptides, Enzymes and Scaffolds

This book is the longest-standing text in the field of social work research and evaluation. Since the first edition in 1981, it has been designed to provide beginning graduate social work students the basic methodological foundation they need in order to successfully complete more advanced research courses that focus on single-system designs or program evaluations. Its content is explained in extraordinarily clear, everyday language. New to this editionContains five new chapters, including The Mixed Methods Approach, Becoming an Evidence-Based Practitioner, Designing Measuring Instruments, Qualitative Content Analysis, and Qualitative Data Analysis: A Theoretical ApproachExtensively revised, updated, and edited chapters. Group Research Designs is now structured around one-group designs and two-group designs, rather than on the three knowledge-level categories: exploratory, descriptive, and explanatory. This reorganization makes it much easier for the students to understand the logic of research designs.Provides students with a solid rationale of why the positivistic and interpretive research approaches within the scientific method have value, in addition to showing that the greatest benefit that the research enterprise can bring to our profession is combining both approaches in a single research study.Emphasizes generalist social work practice, and fully complies with the Council on Social Work Education's research requirements in this respect.Uses numerous examples throughout the text in an effort to emphasize the link between practice and research within generalist social work settings.Contains an extensive discussion on human diversity and ethics.Includes numerous new illustrations to complement and expand on the chapters: these illustrations present interesting research examples; provide additional aids to learning; and offer historical, social, and political contexts of social work research.Student-oriented companion website enhances the learning experience for students, and the ease of use for instructors.
This text is an unbound, binder-ready edition.
Principles of Engineering Economic Analysis, 6th edition teaches engineers to properly and methodically evaluate their work on an economic basis, and to convey it effectively to those who have the power to say "yea" or "nay." The 6th edition is updated and expanded to be comprehensive and flexible - it includes all standard topics plus stronger coverage of more advanced analysis techniques than other books, with the most thorough integration and guidance for spreadsheet use. The text provides a unified treatment of economic analysis principles and techniques from a cash flow perspective, a proven classroom approach that is very successful in practice. Chapter-opening stories about well-known companies, engineering and personal finance examples throughout the text, and external web resources help motivate students. FE-Like problems at the end of each chapter give students practice with the kinds of problems they'll encounter on the FE exam. The 6th edition provides students and instructors the latest tax information, and up-to-date company and industry information in the chapter opening stories, reflecting changes resulting from the recent tumult in the economy, so that students can work with the most current and relevant information.
