Over a few decades, the Internet has developed out of research project into an indispensable part of our lives. We are pretty sure almost everything is on the Web, but can we find it there? In real world, when navigating in a novel place, we look for familiar signs to guide us. On the Web too, we apply our experience to figure out the path. How well does it work? Browsing is still less productive and less popular than searching. Searching works when we know what we are looking for. But what if our need is not clear and we would rather look around? Has the Web reached the state when an intuitive navigation becomes possible?The study explored emerging conventions in content structure of academic and corporate sites. The identified trends were translated into the prototype content structures. The study also found users to possess some expectations of website content organization, which they relied on, interacting with the sites. Match between expectations and reality was shown to affect the success of this interaction. The book will be of interest to website architects, user experience professionals, as well as to developers of intelligent searching and browsing algorithms.

See Clearly Method
34,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The See Clearly Method is an eye exercise program that was marketed as an alternative to the use of glasses, contact lenses, and eye surgery to improve vision. Sales were halted by legal action in 2006. The method is not supported by basic science, and no research studies were conducted prior to marketing. The program is based in part on the Bates method, an alternative therapy devised in the early 20th century which lacks clinical evidence to support the claim that it can improve eyesight.Both the Journal of the American Optometric Association and the Journal of Behavioral Optometry declined to publish a study by the American Vision Institute purportedly demonstrating the efficacy of the method. The AVI then self-published the paper on their website.

Optomechanical Systems Engineering
241,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Covers the fundamental principles behind optomechanical design This book emphasizes a practical, systems-level overview of optomechanical engineering, showing throughout how the requirements on the optical system flow down to those on the optomechanical design. The author begins with an overview of optical engineering, including optical fundamentals as well as the fabrication and alignment of optical components such as lenses and mirrors. The concepts of optomechanical engineering are then applied to the design of optical systems, including the structural design of mechanical and optical components, structural dynamics, thermal design, and kinematic design. Optomechanical Systems Engineering: * Reviews the fundamental concepts of optical engineering as they apply to optomechanical design * Illustrates the fabrication and alignment requirements typically found in an optical system * Examines the elements of structural design from a mechanical, optical, and vibrational viewpoint * Develops the thermal management principles of temperature and distortion control * Describes the optomechanical requirements for kinematic and semi-kinematic mounts * Uses examples and case studies to illustrate the concepts and equations presented in the book * Provides supplemental materials on a companion website Focusing on fundamental concepts and first-order estimates of optomechanical system performance, Optomechanical Systems Engineering is accessible to engineers, scientists, and managers who want to quickly master the principles of optomechanical engineering.

Asante, M: History of Africa
81,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There is a paradox about Africa: it remains a subject that attracts considerable attention yet rarely is there a full appreciation of its complexity. African historiography has typically consisted of writing Africa for Europe—instead of writing Africa for itself, as itself, from its own perspectives. The History of Africa redresses this by letting the perspectives of Africans themselves take center stage. Authoritative and comprehensive, this book provides a wide-ranging history of Africa from earliest prehistory to the present day—using the cultural, social, political, and economic lenses of Africa as instruments to illuminate the ordinary lives of Africans. The result is a fresh survey that includes a wealth of indigenous ideas, African concepts, and traditional outlooks that have escaped the writing of African history in the West. The new edition includes information on the Arab Spring, the rise of FrancAfrica, the presence of the Chinese in Africa, and the birth of South Sudan. The chapters go up to the present day, addressing US President Barack Obama's policies toward Africa. A new companion website provides students and scholars of Africa with access to a wealth of supporting resources for each chapter, including images, video and audio clips, and links to sites for further research. This straightforward, illustrated, and factual text allows the reader to access the major developments, personalities, and events on the African continent. This groundbreaking survey is an indispensable guide to African history.

South Asia in the World: An Introduction
54,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This first book in the new Foundations in Global Studies series offers a fresh, comprehensive, multidisciplinary introduction to South Asia. The variations in social, cultural, economic, and political life in this diverse and complex region are explored within the context of the globalising forces affecting all regions of the world. In a simple strategy that all books in the series employ, the volume begins with foundational material (including chapters on history, language, and, in the case of South Asia, religion), moves to a discussion of globalisation, and then focuses the investigation more specifically through the use of case studies. The cases expose the student to various disciplinary lenses that are important in understanding the region and are meant to bring the region to life through subjects of high interest and significance to today's readers. Resource boxes, an important feature of the book, are included to maintain currency and add utility. They offer links that point readers to a rich archive of additional material, connections to timely data, reports on recent events, official sites, local and country-based media, visual material, and so forth. A website developed by Syracuse University's South Asia Center will feature additional graphic, narrative, and case study material to complement the book.
