2016 | English | 220 pages | ASIN: B009MAC94O | PDF | 5.14 MB

This book discusses how to design “good” geometric puzzles: two-dimensional dissection puzzles, polyhedral dissections, and burrs. It outlines major categories of geometric puzzles and provides examples, sometimes going into the history and philosophy of those examples.


Handbook of Analysis of Edible Animal By-Products

6gh78t34xdnv70Handbook of Analysis of Edible Animal By-Products by Leo M.L. Nollet and Fidel Toldra
2011 | English | 471 pages | ISBN: 1439803609 | PDF | 10.5 MB

Considered high-priced delicacies or waste material to be tossed away, the use and value of offal?edible and inedible animal by-products?depend entirely on the culture and country in question. The skin, blood, bones, meat trimmings, fatty tissues, horns, hoofs, feet, skull, and entrails of butchered animals comprise a wide variety of products including human or pet food or processed materials in animal feed, fertilizer, or fuel. Regardless of the final product’s destination, it is still necessary to employ the most up-to-date and effective tools to analyze these products for nutritional and sensory quality as well as safety.


Low Power Interconnect Design

This book provides practical solutions for delay and power reduction for on-chip interconnects and buses. It provides an in depth description of the problem of signal delay and extra power consumption, possible solutions for delay and glitch removal, while considering the power reduction of the total system.


Fish Reproductive Biology

9u5t3945t46ht34Fish Reproductive Biology: Implications for Assessment and Management by Tore Jakobsen, Michael J. Fogarty, Bernard A. Megrey and Erlend Moksness
2016 | English | 488 pages | ISBN: 1118752740 | AZW3 + EPUB + PDF | 8.40 MB + 6.34 MB + 12.6 MB

Fish recruitment is a key process for maintaining sustainable fish populations. In the marine environment, fish recruitment is carried out in many different ways, all of which have different life history strategies. The objective of this book is to argue for greater linkages between basic and applied research on fisheries recruitment, and assessment and management of exploited fish stocks.
