              Urbanization refers to the process by which towns and cities are formed and expand. The populations of cities are increasing faster than the ability of local and national governments to plan and manage these changes. This requires an urgent need of sustainable urbanization to pro...perly manage the urban development. Well-managed cities have the potential to serve as engines of economic progress. Sustainable urbanization is also essential for promoting stability and preventing violence, crime and extremism. It also plays a significant role in strengthening rural-urban linkages and improving agricultural development. This book brings forth some of the most innovative concepts and elucidates the unexplored aspects of sustainable urbanization. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. This book, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.

              Grammar refers to the set of structural rules that define the composition of phrases, words and clauses in a language. This field involves the use of other disciplines such as morphology, phonology and syntax. It also draws concepts from the fields of pragmatics, phonetics and se...mantics. This field aims to establish precise scientific theories and frameworks that define the syntactic rules of grammar and their functions. Some of these frameworks are functional grammar, Montague grammar, generative grammar, cognitive grammar, generalized phrase structure grammar, dependency grammar, etc. The field plays an important role in the schooling of children from an early age and through advanced learning. The book studies, analyzes and upholds the pillars of grammar and its utmost significance in language learning. It strives to provide a fair idea about this discipline and to help develop a better understanding of the latest advances within this field. The extensive content of this book provides the readers with a thorough understanding of the subject.

              The presence of harmful gases, aerosols, particulates and biological molecules in the atmosphere is termed as air pollution. Air pollution poses serious health risks to humans such as strokes, asthma, heart disease and lung cancer. Animals and plants are also adversely affected b...y it. Both natural and anthropogenic sources are responsible for air pollution. Wildfires, dust storms and volcanic activity are some of its natural sources. The use of fossil fuels, production of fumes, water deposition in landfills, etc., are a few anthropogenic sources which can lead to air pollution. These activities result in release of carbon dioxide, oxides of sulfur, chlorofluorocarbons and nitrogen oxide. Air pollution can be controlled through the use of electric vehicles and switching to renewable sources of energy. From theories to research to practical applications, case studies related to all contemporary topics of relevance to this field have been included in this book. It aims to shed light on some of the unexplored aspects of air pollution and the recent researches in this field. This book is a vital tool for all researching or studying air pollution as it gives incredible insights into the prominent issues and concerns related to air pollution.

              The field of mechanics which focuses on the study of the propagation of cracks in materials is referred as fracture mechanics. It comprises the analysis of flaws that is used to discover which structures are safe and which ones are liable to propagate as cracks and thereby, resul...ting in the failure of the flawed structure. Safe operation of a structure can be achieved through damage tolerance analysis. The two kinds of fracture mechanics are linear elastic fracture mechanics and elastic-plastic fracture mechanics. Linear elastic fracture mechanics covers the concepts of Griffith's criterion, Irwin's modification, stress intensity factor, strain energy release and crack tip plastic zone. Elastic-plastic fracture mechanics focuses upon the concepts of crack tip opening displacement (CTOD), R-curve, J-integral, cohesive zone model and transitions flaw size. This book will also provide interesting topics for research which interested readers can take up. It studies, analyses and upholds the pillars of fracture mechanics and its utmost significance in modern times. This book includes contributions of experts and scientists which will provide innovative insights into this field.

              The branch of biology which focuses on the immune system of various organisms is termed as immunology. It involves the process of charting, measuring and contextualizing the physiological functioning of the immune system in states of both health and disease. The chemical, physica...l, and physiological characteristics of the components of the immune system are also studied under it. The discipline of immunology can be broadly categorized into classical immunology, clinical immunology and developmental immunology. It finds applications in numerous branches of medicine, especially in the domains of organ transplantation, oncology, rheumatology, virology, bacteriology and psychiatry. Immunotherapy is defined as the use of antigens and other immune system components to treat a disease or genetic disorder. In order to achieve the desired therapeutic goal, modern immunology has become increasingly selective in its manipulation of the body's immune system. This book is a valuable compilation of topics, ranging from the basic to the most complex theories and principles in the field of immunology. While understanding the long-term perspectives of the topics, it makes an effort in highlighting their impact as a modern tool for the growth of the discipline. This book attempts to assist those with a goal of delving into the field of immunology.

              Life is a quality that distinguishes physical beings having biological processes from those that do not. Plants, animals, bacteria, etc., are some of the various existing forms of life. Varied definitions of life have been put forward by scientists and philosophers over time. The...re also exist various schools of thought regarding the assessment of the quality of life. It is a subjective concept that varies with the population studied. It is generally conceptualized as a multi-dimensional construct made up of a number of independent domains encompassing physical health, psychological well-being, social relationships and functional roles. Different approaches, evaluations, methodologies and advanced studies on this topic have been included in this book. Such selected concepts that redefine quality assessment of life have been presented herein.

              The drugs which are used in the treatment of cancerous or malignant diseases are termed anti-cancer drugs. The different categories of anticancer drugs are antimetabolites, alkylating agents, hormones and natural products. There are some drugs which do not fall within these categ...ories but exhibit anticancer properties. The selection of a particular anticancer drug to treat a cancer depends on various factors such as the severity of cancer, the location and the type of cancer. The side effects of the drug and whether radiation therapy or surgery can be used are also reasons which help in the determination of which drugs should be administered. This book attempts to understand the multiple branches that fall under the discipline of anti-cancer drug discovery and how such concepts have practical applications. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe. Researchers and students in this field will be assisted by this book.
