 Description
 Book — xiii, 495, G7, R44, I39 pages : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 28 cm
 Summary

The leading text in the field, Animal Behavior shows how researchers use scientific logic to study the underlying mechanisms and evolutionary bases of behavior, now with a streamlined presentation and enhanced eBook.Be introduced to a rich array of fascinating examples of animal behavior and uses a vivid narrative voice that conveys the excitement of the subject. The upcoming 12th edition's enhanced eBook will make the subject come alive with numerous video and audio clips that will be presented inline as students read. The enhanced eBook will also include 50 new interactive figures. Another objective instructors have is to help students master concepts and then demonstrate that mastery. To assist instructors with this goal, the 12th edition enhanced eBook will incorporate allnew inline selfassessments, as well as gradable chapter assessment quizzes.Recognise the rigorous scientific methodology involved in animal behavior research with an allnew "Behind the Scenes" feature, where each chapter will highlight a single research paper and look indepth at how the research was conducted, taking a balanced view of the ultimate and proximate causes underlying how and why animals behave as they do. Rubenstein is renowned for its empirical presentation of the ultimate causes of animal behavior, and this edition will do an even better job of integrating concepts across levels of scale at the proximate level. This need will be addressed by including an even greater focus on Tinbergen's "Four Questions" and by including more integrative studies that cross levels of analysis. A 10% streamline across the content, a redesign of the chapter summaries and the addition of synthetic sections that link topics across the text and media resources will help you traverse Animal Behaviour with ease.NEW TO THIS EDITION:Enhanced integration of concepts across levels of scale: Greater focus on Tinbergen's "Four Questions" & Inclusion of more integrative studies that cross levels of analysis.Streamlined by approximately 10%, primarily by removal of extraneous examples.Added more proximate explanations and integrative examples.Redesigned chapter summaries.Synthetic sections that link topics across the text and media resources will help students get through the information overload.Enhanced eBook edition with numerous video and audio clips presented inline as students read, 50 new interactive figures, inline selfassessments, lab manual, and discussion questions.This title is available as an enhanced eBook.

 Summary

"In this monograph, for elliptic systems with block structure in the upper halfspace and tindependent coefficients, the authors settle the study of boundary value problems by proving compatible wellposedness of Dirichlet, regularity and Neumann problems in optimal ranges of exponents.In this monograph, for elliptic systems with block structure in the upper halfspace and tindependent coefficients, the authors settle the study of boundary value problems by proving compatible wellposedness of Dirichlet, regularity and Neumann problems in optimal ranges of exponents. Prior to this work, only the twodimensional situation was fully understood. In higher dimensions, partial results for existence in smaller ranges of exponents and for a subclass of such systems had been established. The presented uniqueness results are completely new, and the authors also elucidate optimal ranges for problems with fractional regularity data.The first part of the monograph, which can be read independently, provides optimal ranges of exponents for functional calculus and adapted Hardy spaces for the associated boundary operator. Methods use and improve, with new results, all the machinery developed over the last two decades to study such problems: the Kato square root estimates and Riesz transforms, Hardy spaces associated to operators, offdiagonal estimates, nontangential estimates and square functions, and abstract layer potentials to replace fundamental solutions in the absence of local regularity of solutions."
