Interpersonal Communication - Kory FloydKory Floyd's approach to interpersonal communication stems from his research on the positive impact of communication on our health and well-being. "Interpersonal Communication, 2e" demonstrates how effective interpersonal communication can make students' lives better. With careful consideration given to the impact of computer-mediated communication, the program reflects the rapid changes of the modern world in which today's students live and interact. The program also helps students understand and build interpersonal skills and choices for their academic, personal, and professional lives.

Microarrays for an Integrative Genomics - Isaac S. KohaneFunctional genomics--the deconstruction of the genome to determine the biological function of genes and gene interactions--is one of the most fruitful new areas of biology. The growing use of DNA microarrays allows researchers to assess the expression of tens of thousands of genes at a time. This quantitative change has led to qualitative progress in our ability to understand regulatory processes at the cellular level.This book provides a systematic introduction to the use of DNA microarrays as an investigative tool for functional genomics. The presentation is appropriate for readers from biology

Cellular Physiology Of Nerve And Muscle - Gary G. Matthews"Cellular Physiology of Nerve and Muscle "offers an introduction to the basic physical and chemical principles underlying electrical activity in nerve and muscle cells. This third edition retains the same structure as previous editions, with three main sections: the first addresses the origin of electrical membrane potential; the second looks at the cellular physiology of nerve cells; and the third examines the cellular physiology of muscle cells. The strength of the book lies in its clear descriptions of difficult concepts. The reader is asumed to have little knowledge of physics, chemistry or

Finite Mathematics: An Applied Approach - Abe Mizrahi, Michael   SullivanThis volume provides a sound treatment of discrete mathematics, it contains real life applications to business, economics, social, and life sciences demonstrating how mathematics can be applied to a student's fields of study. It is flexibly organised and provides a flowchart in the preface so that instructors can sequence chapters to meet specific needs. It also contains an abundance of realistic examples gradually increasing in difficulty to increase a student's conceptual understanding.

Qualitative Researching - Jennifer MasonThe Second Edition of this best-selling text offers students and first-time researchers invaluable guidance to the practice of qualitative social research. Throughout the author addresses the key issues which need to be identified and resolved in the qualitative research process, and through which researchers develop essential skills in qualitative research. The book highlights the difficult questions that researchers should get into the habit of asking themselves in the course of doing qualitative research, and outlines the implications of the different ways of responding to these questions.

Syntactic Structures - Noam Chomsky, David W. LightfootNoam Chomsky's first book on syntactic structures is one of the first serious attempts on the part of a linguist to construct within the tradition of scientific theory-construction a comprehensive theory of language which may be understood in the same sense that a chemical, biological theory is understood by experts in those fields. It is not a mere reorganization of the data into a new kind of library catalogue, nor another specualtive philosophy about the nature of man and language, but rather a rigorus explication of our intuitions about our language in terms of an overt axiom system, the

Introduction to Advanced Mathematics - William J. Barnier, Norman FeldmanFocused on "What Every Mathematician Needs to Know," this book focuses on the analytical tools necessary for thinking like a mathematician. It anticipates many of the questions readers might have, and develops the subject slowly and carefully, with each chapter containing a full exposition of topics, many examples, and practice problems to reinforce the concepts as they are introduced. "Find the Flaw" problems help readers learn to read proofs critically. Contains five core chapters on elementary logic, methods of proof, set theory, functions, and relations; and four chapters of examples,
