Image-Based Multilevel Biomechanical Modeling for Fall-Induced Hip Fracture

Fall-induced hip fracture is a scourge health and wellbeing chance between aged humans. This e-book offers an image-based multilevel modeling method of figuring out the biomechanics concerned about fall-induced hip fracture. via hierarchically integrating a body-level dynamics version, a femur-level finite point version, and an area bone failure version, the biomechanics strategy is ready to simulate all levels in sideways falls and to include all biomechanical variables affecting hip fracture.

Singularities in Geometry, Topology, Foliations and Dynamics: A Celebration of the 60th Birthday of José Seade, Merida, Mexico, December 2014

This ebook positive factors state of the art study on singularities in geometry, topology, foliations and dynamics and gives an outline of the present kingdom of singularity thought in those settings. Singularity thought is on the crossroad of varied branches of arithmetic and technological know-how ordinarily. lately there were extraordinary advancements, either within the thought itself and in its family members with different components.

Advances in Memristors, Memristive Devices and Systems

This e-book studies at the most up-to-date advances in and functions of memristors, memristive units and structures. It gathers 20 contributed chapters via topic specialists, together with pioneers within the box comparable to Leon Chua (UC Berkeley, united states) and R. S. Williams (HP Labs, USA), who're really good within the a variety of issues addressed during this booklet, and covers vast components of memristors and memristive units reminiscent of: memristor emulators, oscillators, chaotic and hyperchaotic memristive structures, regulate of memristive structures, memristor-based min-max circuits, canonic memristors, memristive-based neuromorphic purposes, implementation of memristor-based chaotic oscillators, inverse memristors, linear memristor units, not on time memristive platforms, flux-controlled memristive emulators, and so forth.
