Local Gradient Theory for Dielectrics: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition

Olha Hrytsyna, Vasyl Kondrat
December 27, 2019

This book is devoted to the development of the local gradient theory of dielectrics. It presents a brief description of the known approaches to the construction of generalized (integral- and gradient-type) continuous theories of dielectrics. It describes a new continuum–thermodynamic approach to...

Glyconanotechnology: Nanoscale Approach for Novel Glycan Analysis and Their Medical Use

1st Edition

Tomáš Bertók
December 20, 2019

Glycomics (a comprehensive study of glycans, often denoted as the third alphabet of molecular biology, besides nucleic acids and proteins) relies on techniques that use "heavy machinery", such as mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography, and capillary electrophoresis. The use of biosensors and...

Interfacial Mechanics: Theories and Methods for Contact and Lubrication

1st Edition

Jane Wang, Dong Zhu
December 17, 2019

Understanding the characteristics of material contact and lubrication at tribological interfaces is of great importance to engineering researchers and machine designers. Traditionally, contact and lubrication are separately studied due to technical difficulties, although they often coexist in...
