This monograph covers one of the divisions of mathematical theory of control which examines moving objects functionating under conflict and uncertainty conditions. To identify this range of problems we use the term "conflict con- trolled processes", coined in recent years. As the name itself does not imply the type of dynamics (difference, ordinary differential, difference-differential, integral, or partial differential equations) the differential games falI within its realms. The problems of search and tracking moving objects are also referred to the field of conflict controlled process. The contents of the monograph is confined to studying classical pursuit-evasion problems which are central to the theory of conflict controlled processes. These problems underlie the theory and are of considerable interest to researchers up to now. It should be noted that the methods of "Line of Sight", "Parallel Pursuit", "Proportional N avigation" ,"Modified Pursuit" and others have been long and well known among engineers engaged in design of rocket and space technology. An abstract theory of dynamic game problems, in its turn, is based on the methods originated by R. Isaacs, L. S. Pontryagin, and N. N. Krasovskii, and on the approaches developed around these methods. At the heart of the book is the Method of Resolving Functions which was realized within the class of quasistrategies for pursuers and then applied to the solution of the problems of "hand-to-hand", group, and succesive pursuit.
This book is a state-of-the art review for clinicians and dieticians with an interest in nutrition and inflammatory bowel diseases (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis). The volume covers new data about dietary risk factors for Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, examines the association between diet and microbiome, describes the various diets in the management of these diseases, and discusses macro- and micronutrient deficiency that occurs in such patients. The book also examines the management of patients on total parenteral nutrition, and management of the short gut syndrome with TPN and novel pharmacologic therapies. Written by experts in their fields, Nutritional Management of Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: A Comprehensive Guide is a valuable and uniquely specialized resource for gastroenterologists, nutritionists, primary care physicians, and other health care providers and researchers dealing with the management of these complex illnesses.
In The Sunflower Principle: Life Lessons from a Simple Flower, author Donna Austin chronicles the role sunflowers played in her recovery from the ashes of divorce. Sunflowers were a favorite flower of her daughter, but it wasn't until she faced the agony of divorce and an empty nest that she realized they symbolized hope and love for her. From these big, bold, beautiful sunflowers and during time spent in her garden, she learned many valuable lessons about how to withstand the storms of life, lift up her head, and stand tall again.
She has presented the lessons she learned from tending to the sunflowers in the form of seeds of wisdom in The Sunflower Principle. Through these lessons, she offers a simple guide for living, with all people--regardless of race, religion, or national origin. In order to become a sunflower, it is necessary to sow some seeds ourselves--seeds of compassion, love, peace, and understanding. The result of sowing these four tiny seeds make a difference in our lives, and become the catalyst for change in our world.
When Paige finds an old mix CD in a local charity shop, she can't help but wonder about the boy who made it and the girl he was thinking of when he chose the songs. The tracks tell the story of a boy looking for his perfect girl, a girl to understand him, a story of being alone, being let down, misunderstood and not knowing where to turn. Following the clues of the music, Paige sets out to find the mysterious boy, going from gig to gig and band to band, hoping to track him down. But will who she finds at the end of the trail, be the boy she's imagined? Another perfect girly read from Queen of Teen nominee Cathy Hopkins!
Patrick Heinemann combines and extends social psychology research on power and influence with insights from research on the use of information. He derives hypotheses on the relationships between influence strategies based on management accounting information, influence outcomes, and various moderating variables
