              Carbon nanomaterials include: one-dimensional (1D) structures, like nanotubes; two-dimensional (2D) crystal lattice with only one-atom-thick planar sheets, like graphenes; composites based on carbon nanotube or graphene, and diamond nanowires and thin films. In the past two decad...es, rapid developments in the synthesis and processing of carbon-based nanomaterials have created a great desire amongst scientists to gain a greater understanding of thermal transport in these materials. Thermal properties in nanomaterials differ significantly from those in bulk materials because the characteristic length scales associated with the heat carriers, phonons, are comparable to the characteristic length. Carbon nanomaterials with high thermal conductivity can be applied in heat dissipation. This looks set to make a significant impact on human life and, with numerous commercial developments emerging, will become a major academic topic over the coming years. This book sets the subject into context by firstly describing the thermal properties of various carbon nanomaterials and then looking at the applications in thermal management and renewable energy. This authoritative and comprehensive book will be of great use to both the existing scientific community in this field, as well as for those who wish to enter it.

              The Law of Emergencies, Second Edition, introduces the American legal system as it interacts disaster management, public health, and civil unrest issues. Nan Hunter shows how the law in this area plays out in the context of real life emergencies where individuals often have to ma...ke split-second decisions. This book covers the major legal principles underlying emergency policy and operations and analyzes legal authority at the federal, state and local levels, placing the issues in historical context but concentrating on contemporary questions. It includes primary texts, reader-friendly expository explanation, and sample discussion questions in each chapter, as well as scenarios for each of the three major areas to put the concepts in to action. Prior knowledge of the law is not necessary in order to use and understand this book, and it satisfies the need of professionals in a wide array of fields related to emergency management to understand both what the law requires and how to analyze issues for which there is no clear legal answer. It features materials on such critical issues as how to judge the extent of Constitutional authority for government to intervene in the lives and property of American citizens. At the same time, it also captures bread-and-butter issues such as responder liability and disaster relief methods. No other book brings these components together in a logically organized, step by step fashion.

              Nanostructures for Antimicrobial Therapy discusses the pros and cons of the use of nanostructured materials in the prevention and eradication of infections, highlighting the efficient microbicidal effect of nanoparticles against antibiotic-resistant pathogens and biofilms. Conven...tional antibiotics are becoming ineffective towards microorganisms due to their widespread and often inappropriate use. As a result, the development of antibiotic resistance in microorganisms is increasingly being reported. New approaches are needed to confront the rising issues related to infectious diseases. The merging of biomaterials, such as chitosan, carrageenan, gelatin, poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) with nanotechnology provides a promising platform for antimicrobial therapy as it provides a controlled way to target cells and induce the desired response without the adverse effects common to many traditional treatments. Nanoparticles represent one of the most promising therapeutic treatments to the problem caused by infectious micro-organisms resistant to traditional therapies. This volume discusses this promise in detail, and also discusses what challenges the greater use of nanoparticles might pose to medical professionals. The unique physiochemical properties of nanoparticles, combined with their growth inhibitory capacity against microbes has led to the upsurge in the research on nanoparticles as antimicrobials. The importance of bactericidal nanobiomaterials study will likely increase as development of resistant strains of bacteria against most potent antibiotics continues.

              Adaptive Control seeks for optimal action based on the current characteristics of a system and learning how the characteristics change along the way, opposed to a plain Robust Control approach that establishes a range of variation in the parameters and ensures the stability of th...e systems within those values. Two are the main approaches to the learning process: Model Based and Model Free being so that in the first case you have to precisely model the characteristics of a system and they have to remain stable. For Model Free Adaptive Control you start knowing nothing about the system and learning from action (inputs) and reaction (outputs). This will be the first book that offers a blended approach to Adaptive Control having some physical modeling but allowing the characteristics to evolve naturally over time maintaining the stability of the system. In the cases presented by the author there is remarkable gain in performance and adaptability of the systems by applying his findings. * Includes a good number of Mechatronics Examples of the techniques* Compares and blends Model-free and Model-based learning algorithms* Coverage of fundamental concepts, state of the art research, necessary tools for modeling, and applications

              This book provides a comprehensive overview of how use of micro- and nanotechnology (MNT) has allowed major new advance in vaccine development research, and the challenges that immunologists face in making further progress. MNT allows the creation of particles that exploit the in...herent ability of the human immune system to recognize small particles such as viruses and toxins. In combination with minimal protective epitope design, this permits the creation of immunogenic particles that stimulate a response against the targeted pathogen. The finely tuned response of the human immune system to small particles makes it unsurprising that many of the lead adjuvants and vaccine delivery systems currently under investigation are based on nanoparticles. * Provides a comprehensive and unparalleled overview of the role of micro- and nanotechnology in vaccine development* Allows researchers to quickly familiarize themselves with the broad spectrum of vaccines and how micro- and nanotechnologies are applied to their development* Includes a combination of overview chapters setting out general principles, and focused content dealing with specific vaccines, making it useful to readers from a variety of disciplines
