    Modern Experimental Biochemistry (3rd Edition)
    Publisher: Benjamin Cummings 2000 | ISBN: 0805331115 | Pages: 480 | PDF | 5.32 MB

    I had to get this book for a class (experimental lab). For that it was practically useless since the instructor showed us everything anyway for fear of us breaking things :-)Now, this book needs to be thumbed-through every time you are stuck, looking for a new or different method to analyze something in your biological experiments. Every time I do that I get a new idea which, of course, had nothing to do with my original idea.Also, I did not get the hardcover version. I got the cheap softcover, printed in India with ink peeling off on my fingers and printed on nearly toilet paper. However, I cannot lessen the stars for the review I got exactly what I paid for, a very cheap version of a great reference book.

    Elementary Probability Theory: With Stochastic Processes and an Introduction to Mathematical Finance
    Publisher: Springer | 2010 | ISBN: 1441930620 | Pages: 418 | PDF | 3.4 MB

    In this edition two new chapters, 9 and 10, on mathematical finance are added. They are written by Dr. Farid AitSahlia, ancien eleve, who has taught such a course and worked on the research staff of several industrial and financial institutions. The new text begins with a meticulous account of the uncommon vocab­ ulary and syntax of the financial world; its manifold options and actions, with consequent expectations and variations, in the marketplace. These are then expounded in clear, precise mathematical terms and treated by the methods of probability developed in the earlier chapters. Numerous graded and motivated examples and exercises are supplied to illustrate the appli­ cability of the fundamental concepts and techniques to concrete financial problems. For the reader whose main interest is in finance, only a portion of the first eight chapters is a "prerequisite" for the study of the last two chapters. Further specific references may be scanned from the topics listed in the Index, then pursued in more detail.

    Publisher: Cambridge University Press; 1 edition (June 30, 2011) | ISBN: 1107008123 | Pages: 564 | PDF | 4.80 MB

    Despite a decades-long debate, starting with the 'Tuna-Dolphin' disputes of the 1990s, questions on the status of national regulatory measures linked to processes and production methods in WTO law have yet remained unsolved. Likewise, labelling requirements relating to unincorporated aspects of a product's life cycle remain strongly contested. These ongoing disputes at the WTO as well as global social and environmental challenges related to economic activities show how topical and important the search for adequate answers still is.

    Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures: Critical Essays
    Publisher: Lexington Books (July 2003) | ISBN: 073910568X | Pages: 448 | PDF | 31.9 MB

    The recent rise of Francophone studies within French studies has created the need for a one-volume exploration of the range of expression in the French language following the colonial period. Francophone Post-Colonial Cultures collects discussions of literary texts and cultural identity from Europe, North Africa, the Caribbean, and South Asia—regions of the world that seem to have only the French language in common. Despite enormous differences among all the countries where French is spoken, Francophone literatures tend to deal with a similar spread of issues.

    Freud's Literary Culture
    Publisher: Cambridge University Press (June 5, 2000) | ISBN: 0521663164 | Pages: 276 | PDF | 1 MB

    This original book investigates the role played by literature in Sigmund Freud's creation and development of psychoanalysis. Graham Frankland analyzes the whole range of Freud's own texts from a literary-critical perspective, providing a comprehensive reappraisal of his life's work. His study reveals how Freud was deeply rooted in European literary tradition, examining in detail the rhetoric and imagery of his writing, the influence of literary criticism on his approach to analyzing patients and his creation of psychoanalytical "novels," quasi-literary fictions fraught with profoundly personal subtexts.
