Waste-to-Energy: Sustainable Approaches for Emerging Economies presents the latest developments and applications for the conversion of waste into biofuels and other energy products.Divided into two parts, Section I reviews the major sources of solid waste and their management strategies in developing countries, and includes the collection, composition, segregation, and dispersal of various waste streams, as well as the generation of biogas and other value-added products. Section II examines the transformation of waste into biofuels and the management strategies required to efficiently implement waste-to-energy processes. Methods for the production of hydrogen, biomethane, biofuels, and bioenergy, as well as resource recovery are discussed in depth, and mathematical models are provided for anaerobic digestion techniques. The benefits and challenges of waste-to-energy as a waste management strategy are explored through dedicated chapters on the techno-economics, environmental and social regulation, the operation of WtE plants. The final chapter of the book presents a life cycle assessment and environmental impact analysis of the technologies and strategies discussed.Waste-to-Energy: Sustainable Approaches for Emerging Economies is a valuable reference for students and researchers interested in waste-to-energy, waste management, and biotechnology, and will be of interest to the wider environmental sciences and renewable energy communities.
Federated Learning for Medical Imaging: principles, algorithms and applications gives a deep understanding of the technology of federated learning (FL), the architecture of a federated system, and the algorithms for FL. It shows how FL allows multiple medical institutes to collaboratively train and use a precise machine learning (ML) model without sharing private medical data via practical implantation guidance. The book includes real-world case studies and applications of FL, demonstrating how this technology can be used to solve complex problems in medical imaging. The book also provides an understanding of the challenges and limitations of FL for medical imaging, including issues related to data and device heterogeneity, privacy concerns, synchronization and communication, etc.Federated Learning for Medical Imaging: Principles, Algorithms and Applications is a complete resource for computer scientists and engineers as well as clinicians and medical care policy makers wanting to learn about the application of federated learning to medical imaging.

Primate Adaptation and Evolution, Fourth Edition provides key features of extant families and references to more detailed texts. The book sets the scene and creates space for a thorough updating of exciting developments in primate paleontology and a reconstruction through early hominid species of our own human origins. This updated version covers recent developments in primate paleontology, the latest taxonomy, and includes new visuals, including helpful illustrations and evolutionary trees. It is an ideal text for undergraduate and post-graduate students studying the evolution and functional ecology of primates and early fossil hominids.The book retains its grounding in the extant primate groups as the best way to understand the fossil trail and evolution of these modern forms. However, this coverage is now more streamlined, referring to the many new and excellent books on living primate ecology and adaptation - a field that has burgeoned since this book's first publication.

Due to their efficient mechanical properties, light weight, and low noise during operation, plastic gears are replacing metallic gears in traditional and new applications. However, due to a lack of material characterization and complex relations between different geometric and operating parameters, polymer gear design remains an open challenge.This book serves as a comprehensive and professional guide on polymer gears design and processing. It will provide the reader with current developments carried out in the field of plastic gears production, characterization, and applications. This will include material development, tribological properties, simulations, and processing methods.
Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science, Third Edition, Five Volume Set, brings together the multidisciplinary expertise needed to understand the history of humans, life, environmental and climate change, and understand what we may expect over the coming decades.Quaternary Science comprises studies of the physical and biological world during the time of continental glaciations in the last 2.6 million years. This interval is critical to our understanding of the modern world, as the current flora, fauna, and physical environment have been shaped by events in the Quaternary. The Quaternary is the only geological period with one foot in the past and one foot in the present.Since publication of the previous edition, our understanding of many topics has been revolutionized by new discoveries and new techniques. The development of ancient DNA studies, for example, has revolutionized our thinking about the origins, dispersal, and population dynamics of our ancestors. Every new aDNA analysis from ancient human remains causes the story to become more complex. We are the sole survivors of the genus Homo, yet we harbor genetic fragments from other closely related but long-extinct lineages.The Quaternary is uniquely situated as a laboratory in which to study the shaping of the modern world, including biotic responses to large-scale environmental change. This new edition of Encyclopedia of Quaternary Science is the most comprehensive account of state-of-the-art research in the field.
