This book comprehensively addresses the physics and engineering aspects of human physiology by using and building on first-year college physics and mathematics. Topics include the mechanics of the static body and the body in motion, the mechanical properties of the body, muscles in the body, the energetics of body metabolism, fluid flow in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, the acoustics of sound waves in speaking and hearing, vision and the optics of the eye, the electrical properties of the body, and the basic engineering principles of feedback and control in regulating all aspects of function. The goal of this text is to clearly explain the physics issues concerning the human body, in part by developing and then using simple and subsequently more refined models of the macrophysics of the human body. Many chapters include a brief review of the underlying physics. There are problems at the end of each chapter; solutions to selected problems are also provided. This second edition enhances the treatments of the physics of motion, sports, and diseases and disorders, and integrates discussions of these topics as they appear throughout the book. Also, it briefly addresses physical measurements of and in the body, and offers a broader selection of problems, which, as in the first edition, are geared to a range of student levels. This text is geared to undergraduates interested in physics, medical applications of physics, quantitative physiology, medicine, and biomedical engineering.

The IOL technical specifications, the clinical data, and the necessary clinical and surgical skills comprise the scientific foundation for achieving a "premium" refractive outcome. To consistently achieve patient satisfaction, however, requires mastering the art of patient and IOL selection, communicating and counseling effectively, and providing a "premium" patient experience. This is a nontraditional book in which multiple experts are separately asked to discuss controversial subjects in a reader-friendly format. There is balanced coverage of all of the available refractive IOLs, as well as those that may become available in the near future. A major emphasis is placed on avoiding and managing complications or potentially dissatisfied patients. There are more than 200 chapters that are organized into 14 major sections, over 300 images, 100 tables, and 12 sidebars that cover every aspect of refractive IOL clinical practice. This is a comprehensive educational resource addressing the most demanding and rapidly evolving area in cataract and refractive surgery today and the first book to cover both the clinical and nonclinical aspects of offering refractive IOL services.

Noch bessere Didaktik, noch mehr Beispiele, noch mehr Aufgaben, noch mehr Spaß - die Neuauflage des "Halliday" erfüllt alle Wünsche an ein zeitgemäßes Lehrbuch der Physik! Das Lehrbuch bietet den gesamten Stoff der einführenden Experimentalphysik-Vorlesungen für Hauptfachstudenten. Mehrere Kapitel wurden im Sinne der besseren Verständlichkeit komplett umgeschrieben, etwa zum Gauß'schen Satz und zum elektrischen Potential. Die Kapitel zur Quantenmechanik sind deutlich umfangreicher und behandeln nun die Schrödinger-Gleichung ausführlicher bis hin zur Reflexion von Materiewellen an Potentialstufen und der Schwarzkörperstrahlung. Doch für die dritte Auflage wurden die Kapitel nicht nur überarbeitet, sondern didaktisch neu strukturiert: die Lerninhalte sind nun in Modulen organisiert, wobei jede Einheit die Lernziele explizit aufführt und die Schlüsselkonzepte zusammenfasst. So können Studentinnen und Studenten zielgerichtet lernen und den Lernerfolg nach der Lektüre selbst überprüfen. Das selbstständige Lernen wird unterstützt durch rund 300 im Text durchgerechnete Beispiele, 250 Verständnis-Checks, mehr als 650 konzeptionelle Fragen sowie mehr als 2500 Aufgaben unterschiedlichen Schwierigkeitsgrads.

Denis Johnson, dieser große amerikanische Autor, über den Jonathan Franzen schrieb, dass der Gott, an den er glauben möchte, eine Stimme und einen Humor wie Denis Johnson habe, erzählt in seinem neuen Roman über Freundschaft in einer Welt, die auseinanderbricht. Roland Nair gibt sich als Däne aus, ist aber mit einem amerikanischen Pass unterwegs. Als er in Freetown, der Hauptstadt von Sierra Leone, aus dem Flugzeug steigt, schlägt ihm die Hitze Afrikas entgegen. Zehn Jahre war er nicht mehr da, aber jetzt ist er gekommen, um seinen Freund Michael Adriko wiederzusehen, einen Abenteurer, mit dem zusammen er während des Bürgerkriegs eine Menge Geld verdiente. Obwohl Nair die Region für hoffnungslos hält, will er das Glück ein zweites Mal herausfordern. Zu seiner Überraschung kommt der Freund zu ihrem Treffen nicht allein. Er hat eine junge Frau mitgebracht, Davidia St. Claire, eine schwarze Collegestudentin aus Colorado. Die beiden wollen heiraten, und zwar im Kreis von Adrikos Sippe, und Nair soll sie in sein Dorf irgendwo im Grenzland zwischen Uganda und dem Kongo begleiten. Obwohl er den Verdacht hat, dass all das nur ein Vorwand ist, macht er sich mit den beiden auf den Weg. Aber jeder ist jedem ein Rätsel, Interpol, der Mossad und der MI6 sind hinter ihnen her, und die Reise durch ein geheimnisvolles, beklemmendes Afrika führt geradewegs ins Herz der Finsternis. In «Die lachenden Ungeheuer» erzählt Denis Johnson die atemraubende Geschichte kaleidoskopartig verschwimmender Loyalitäten in einer seit 9/11 immer undurchsichtiger, chaotischer und verzweifelter gewordenen Welt. Ein aufwühlender, schneller, dunkler Abenteuer- und Spionageroman in der Tradition von Joseph Conrad und Graham Greene – und ein neuer Beweis für die Meisterschaft eines der bedeutendsten amerikanischen Schriftsteller unserer Zeit.
