Most of the problems arising in science and engineering are nonlinear. They are inherently difficult to solve. Traditional analytical approximations are valid only for weakly nonlinear problems, and often break down for problems with strong nonlinearity. This book presents the current theoretical developments and applications of the Keller-box method to nonlinear problems. The first half of the book addresses basic concepts to understand the theoretical framework for the method. In the second half of the book, the authors give a number of examples of coupled nonlinear problems that have been solved by means of the Keller-box method. The particular area of focus is on fluid flow problems governed by nonlinear equation.

From the author of the highly acclaimed Book of VB .NET comes this comprehensive introduction to Visual Basic 2005, the newest version of Microsoft’s popular programming language. If you’re a developer who is new to the language, you will learn to use VB 2005 effectively. If you’re from the old school of VB but haven’t yet made the jump to .NET, you will be able to make the transition seamlessly. And you won’t have to wade through boring, unnecessary material before you get there. This guide covers all the necessities, ditching jargon and getting right to the substance of how to: * Implement object-oriented programming with classes, interfaces, and inheritance * Design well-behaved multithreaded applications * Work with XML, file streams, and ADO.NET, the .NET toolkit for relational databases * Build code-driven web pages and rich Windows applications * Deploy your applications with snazzy setup programs Conversational in tone and eminently readable, this book tackles VB 2005’s hot new features and explains how to work with .NET, but it doesn’t water the information down for beginners. After a brief overview of changes from VB 6, you’ll get real-world examples in each chapter that will get you up to speed and ready to perform in the VB 2005 environment. Helpful code examples, references to additional online material, and tips on planning, design, and architecture round out The Book of Visual Basic 2005. Professional developers who need to master VB 2005 will want this book by their side.

This book is the result of frustration. When I first became interested in digi tal simulation in 1967 (I didn't know the name then), there were no texts to tell one the how of it. This has not changed greatly since then; it is significant that just about all publications about the technique refer to a chapter by Feldberg in an electrochemical series, written in 1969. When I ran a course on the method recently, it became evident that this chapter is not enough for the raw beginner. Neither does he/she get much help from the mathematical textbooks which, at best, leave the special electrochemical aspects (if not a lot else) to one's imagination. This book, then, is written for practical digital simulators who do not have a friend who will tell them how to do it. The beauty of the digital approach is that one can separate out various dynamic processes taking place simultaneously. I have structured the book in this way. The major computing usually lies in the diffusion of substance, while the major program ming effort (and preparatory paper work) goes into the boundary conditions. These are treated separately.

Beekeeping is the maintenance of honey bee colonies, commonly in hives, by humans. Bees are accommodated in artificial lives where they live comfortably within easy reach of the bee keeper for examination and extraction of surplus lovely, after keeping of sufficient lovely in the combs for the bees. Honey is a part of bees, which gather sugar containing nectars from flowers. Honey should be processed as soon as possible after removal from the hive. Honey processing is a sticky operation, in which time and patience are required to achieve the best results. Careful protection against contamination by ants and flying insects is needed at all stages of processing. Bee honey is natural, unrefined food consumed as much in fresh or canned state. It is readily assimilated and is more acceptable to the stomach, particularly in the case of ailing persons, than cane sugar. It is an antiseptic and is applied to wounds and burns with beneficial results. Honey collection and its marketing in India are still not fully organised. The main uses of honey are in cooking, baking, as a spread on breads and as an addition to various beverages such as tea and as a sweetener in commercial beverages. Honey is the main ingredient in the alcoholic beverages mead, which is also known as honey wine or honey bear, honey is also used in medicines. A number of small scale industries depend upon bees and bee products. Honey and bees products finds use in several industries which are under; pharmaceuticals, meat packing, bees wax in industries, bee venom, royal jelly, bee nurseries, bee equipments and hives etc. There is considerable demand for the honey and other products. Outside the thousands of homemade recipes in each cultural tradition, honey is largely used on a small scale as well as at an industrial level. Some of the fundamentals of the book are history of beekeeping in India present, all India co ordinate research project on honey bee research and training, future plan for development, the pattern of beekeeping today, development of beekeeping equipments, beekeeping industry and honeybee species, bee hive products, medicinal properties of honey, bees and agriculture, pesticidal poisoning to honeybees, handling bees, queen rearing and artificial queen, beekeeping and ancillary industries, honey based industries, honey in pharmaceuticals, honey in meat packing, beeswax in industries, bee stings precautions and treatment. The book contains the steps of bee keeping in proper manner and details of honey processing. This book is an invaluable resource for new entrepreneurs, technocrats and also for established enterprises.

This essay collection explores the cultural functions the printed book performs in the digital age. It examines how the use of and attitude toward the book form have changed in light of the digital transformation of American media culture. Situated at the crossroads of American studies, literary studies, book studies, and media studies, these essays show that a sustained focus on the medial and material formats of literary communication significantly expands our accustomed ways of doing cultural studies. Addressing the changing roles of authors, publishers, and readers while covering multiple bookish formats such as artists’ books, bestselling novels, experimental fiction, and zines, this interdisciplinary volume introduces readers to current transatlantic conversations on the history and future of the printed book.
