Good Clinical Practice II: Praxis der Studiendurchführung by P. Günzel, R. Baß (auth.), Lothar Lange, Wolf Seifert,

By P. Günzel, R. Baß (auth.), Lothar Lange, Wolf Seifert, Halvor Jaeger, Ingrid Klingmann (eds.)

Die neuen europ{ischen Richtlinien zur Durchf}hrung von klinischen Pr}fungenf}hren zu einschneidenden [nderungen in der Arzneimittelentwicklung. Da diese Richtlinien vor allem auf die Vorgehensweise bei Patienten zielen, istes notwendig, Konzepte zu entwickeln, wie guy diese Richtlinien auf Untersuchungen an Probanden adaptiert (Humanpharmakologie, klinische Pharmakologie). Im vordergrund des 2. Bandes steht die praktische Umsetzung der Forderungen in die t{gliche regimen der Planung, Durchf}hrung, Auswertung und Berichterstattung von klinischen Pr}fungen im Rahmen der Arzneimittelentwicklung.

Währungskrieg: Der Kampf um die monetäre Weltherrschaft by James Rickards

By James Rickards

An einem regnerischen Tag im wintry weather 2009 treffen 60 Experten aus Militär und Finanzwelt an einem geheimen Ort zusammen, um ein gewagtes scan durchzuführen: die Simulation einen Krieges! Mit einer Besonderheit: ohne Truppen, ohne Kriegsschiffe und ohne Armeen oder Kampfjets. Stattdessen: mit Währungen, Aktien, Bonds und Derivaten. Schlachtfeld sind die internationalen Finanzmärkte, und das Ziel des unblutig kriegerischen Experiments ist nichts Geringeres als die Vernichtung eines Staates durch die Macht des Geldes. So fern dieses Szenario im ersten Augenblick klingt, so nah ist der Kollaps des money oder Euros, wie die täglichen Schlagzeilen vermelden. James Rickards, Experte in Sachen Währungskrisen mit mehr als 35 Jahren Erfahrung an der Wall highway, legt dar, warum Währungskriege keine ausschließlich ökonomische oder monetäre Gefahr bedeuten, sondern die Existenz eine ganzes Landes oder gar Kontinents bedrohen können. Und er beweist am Beispiel der united states, dass der Versuch milliardenfach Geld zu drucken, um die Wirtschaft zu stimulieren, nichts anderes ist als das mit Abstand größte Glückspiel aller Zeiten.

Hard Real-Time Computing Systems: Predictable Scheduling by Giorgio C Buttazzo

By Giorgio C Buttazzo

Real-time platforms play a vital position in our society, assisting a number of vital software components, similar to nuclear and chemical plant keep an eye on, flight keep watch over structures, site visitors regulate in airports, harbors, and teach stations, telecommunication structures, commercial automation, robotics, protective army platforms, area missions, and so forth. regardless of the sort of huge variety of severe functions, lots of the present real-time structures are nonetheless designed and applied utilizing low point programming and empirical options with out the help of an exact medical method. The outcome of this method is a scarcity of reliability, which in serious functions can cause critical harm to the surroundings or bring about major human loss. difficult Real-Time Computing platforms: Predictable Scheduling Algorithms and purposes is a simple treatise on real-time computing, with specific emphasis on predictable scheduling algorithms. the most pursuits of the e-book are to introduce the elemental ideas of real-time computing, illustrate the main major ends up in the sphere, and supply the fundamental methodologies for designing predictable computing structures that are used to help serious keep an eye on purposes. challenging Real-Time Computing structures: Predictable Scheduling Algorithms and purposes provides primary options that are truly outlined before everything of every bankruptcy, and every set of rules is defined via concrete examples, figures and tables. After introducing the fundamental ideas of real-time computing, the ebook covers such themes as taxonomy of scheduling algorithms, versions of projects with particular time constraints, dealing with initiatives with priority family, periodic and aperiodic job scheduling, entry protocols to shared assets, asynchronous communique mechanisms, schedulability research, and dealing with overload stipulations. not easy Real-Time Computing structures: Predictable Scheduling Algorithms and functions used to be written to be used as a textbook and serves as an first-class reference for these drawn to real-time computing for designing and/or constructing predictable keep watch over functions, which could contain robotics, plant keep watch over, tracking structures, info acquisition, simulations of real-world structures, digital fact, interactive video games, and so on.
