The Porphyrin Handbook Volume 10 - Roger Guilard, Karl Kadish, Kevin M. Smith
Scientists in such fields as mathematics, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and medicine are currently involved in investigations of porphyrins and their numerous analogues and derivatives. Porphyrins are being used as platforms for the study of theoretical principles, as catalysts, as drugs, as electronic devices, and as spectroscopic probes in biology and medicine. The need for an up-to-date and authoritative treatise on the porphyrin system has met with universal acclaim amongst

The Economics of Software Quality - Capers Jones, Olivier Bonsignour, Jitendra Subramanyam
""Whether consulting, working on projects, or teaching, whenever I need credible, detailed, relevant metrics and insights into the current capabilities and performance of the software engineering profession, I always turn first to Capers Jones' work. In this important new book, he and Olivier Bonsignour make the hard-headed, bottom-line, economic case, with facts and data, about why software quality is so important. I know I'll turn to this excellent reference again and again.""--Rex Black,

Annual Review of Neuroscience, Vol. 4 - W. Cowan, Eric R. Kandel, Zach Hall
Forty-one articles are presented, comprising an important report of developments in the field and a review of progress. It is, therefore, a disappointment to note that this highly respected publisher has allowed its production department to perfect bind Neuroscience and to hide that cheaper technique by notch adhesive binding: the signatures are left intact with the gutter edge cut through at several places to allow adhesive to reach part of each page. The head & tail remains not notched to

Atomic and Molecular Clusters - Roy L. Johnston
Cluster physics is the foundation of the increasingly important field of nanotechnology. Clusters, ranging in size from a few to many millions of atoms, constitute a fascinating field of research in physics, chemistry and materials science. They are formed by most of the elements of the Periodic Table, and the types of bonding and the resultant clusters are equally as varied. This book introduces atomic clusters, ranging from weakly-bonded clusters of argon to strongly-bonded carbon clusters
