Release Date: 2006-05-05
Genre: Science

Third Edition covers the latest advances in methodologies, sensors, detectors, and mIcrochips The greatly expanded Third Edition of this internationally respected text continues to provide readers with a complete panorama of electroanalytical techniques and devices, offering a balancebetween voltammetric and potentiometric techniques. Emphasizing electroanalysis rather than physical electrochemistry, readers gain a deep understanding of the fundamentals of electrodereactions and electrochemical methods. Moreover, readers learn to apply their newfoundknowledge and skills to solve real-world analytical problems. The text consists of six expertly crafted chapters: * Chapter 1 introduces fundamental aspects of electrode reactions and the structure of the interfacial region * Chapter 2 studies electrode reactions and high-resolution surface characterization, using techniques ranging from cyclic voltammetry to scanning probe microscopies * Chapter 3 features an overview of modern finite-current controlled potential techniques * Chapter 4 presents electrochemical instrumentation and electrode materials, including modified electrodes and ultramicroelectrodes * Chapter 5 details the principles of potentiometric measurements and various classes of ion selective electrodes * Chapter 6 explores the growing field of chemical sensors, including biosensors, gas sensors, microchip devices, and sensor arrays Among the new topics covered, readers discover DNA biosensors, impedance spectroscopy, detection of capillary electrophoresis, diamond electrodes, carbon-nanotube and nanoparticle-based arrays and devices, large-amplitude AC voltammetry, solid-state ion-selective electrodes, ion selective electrodes for trace analysis, and lab-on-a-chip devices. New figures, worked examples, and end-of-chapter questions have also been added to this edition. Given the rapid pace of discovery and growth of new applications in the field, this text is essential for an up-to-date presentation of the latest advances in methodologies, sensors, detectors, and microchips. It is recommended for graduate-level courses in electroanalytical chemistry and as a supplement for upper-level undergraduate courses in instrumental analysis. The text also meets the reference needs for any industry, government, or academic laboratory engaged in electroanalysis and biosensors.

Numerical Methods for Chemical Engineers with MATLAB Applications

Author: A. Constantinides
Publisher: Prentice Hall
ISBN: 0130138517
Release Date: 1999
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Master numerical methods using MATLAB, today's leading software for problem solving. This complete guide to numerical methods in chemical engineering is the first to take full advantage of MATLAB's powerful calculation environment. Every chapter contains several examples using general MATLAB functions that implement the method and can also be applied to many other problems in the same category. The authors begin by introducing the solution of nonlinear equations using several standard approaches, including methods of successive substitution and linear interpolation; the Wegstein method, the Newton-Raphson method; the Eigenvalue method; and synthetic division algorithms. With these fundamentals in hand, they move on to simultaneous linear algebraic equations, covering matrix and vector operations; Cramer's rule; Gauss methods; the Jacobi method; and the characteristic-value problem. Additional coverage includes: Finite difference methods, and interpolation of equally and unequally spaced points Numerical differentiation and integration, including differentiation by backward, forward, and central finite differences; Newton-Cotes formulas; and the Gauss Quadrature Two detailed chapters on ordinary and partial differential equations Linear and nonlinear regression analyses, including least squares, estimated vector of parameters, method of steepest descent, Gauss-Newton method, Marquardt Method, Newton Method, and multiple nonlinear regression The numerical methods covered here represent virtually all of those commonly used by practicing chemical engineers. The focus on MATLAB enables readers to accomplish more, with less complexity, than was possible with traditional FORTRAN. For those unfamiliar with MATLAB, a brief introduction is provided as an Appendix. Over 60+ MATLAB examples, methods, and function scripts are covered, and all of them are included on the book's CD

Neuere Entwicklungen der Entscheidungstheorie, die in der deutschsprachigen Literatur bislang noch kaum Beachtung fanden, sind Gegenstand dieses Buchs. Es geht um Alternativen zur subjektiven Erwartungsnutzentheorie, die der Erfassung intransitiver Präferenzen und der Berücksichtigung von Ergebnisplausibilitäten, Ambiguität, potentieller Enttäuschung und potentiellem Bedauern dienen. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein axiomatischer Ansatz, der die Entwicklung leicht verständlicher Axiomensysteme und die Lösung einiger bislang noch ungelöster Axiomatisierungsprobleme erlaubt. Die ausführlich dargestellten Beweise sind in Anhänge zu den einzelnen Kapiteln ausgelagert.
