This book offers a comprehensive introduction to workflow management, the management of business processes with information technology. By defining, analysing and redesigning an organisation's resources and operations, workflow management systems ensure that the right information reaches the right person or computer application at the right time. The book provides a basic overview of workflow terminology and organisation, as well as detailed coverage of workflow modelling with Petri nets. Because Petri nets make definitions easier for non-experts to understand, they facilitate communication between designers and users. The book includes a chapter of case studies, review exercises and a glossary.

In recent years, great progress has been made in the understanding of recombination processes controlling the number of excess free carriers in semiconductors under nonequilibrium conditions. As a result, it is now possible to give a comprehensive theoretical description of these processes. The authors have selected a number of experimental results which elucidate the underlying physical problems and enable a test of theoretical models. The following topics are dealt with: phenomenological theory of recombination, theoretical models of shallow and deep localized states, cascade model of carrier capture by impurity centers, capture restricted by diffusion, multiphonon processes, Auger processes, effect of electric field on capture and thermal emission of carriers.

Recently there has been intense research activity on the subject of wavelet/subband theory and application. Experts in such diverse fields as mathematics, physics, electrical engineering and image processing have provided original and pioneering works and results. But this diversity, while rich and productive, has lead to a sense of fragmentation, especially to those new to the field, and nonspecialists, trying to understand the connections between the different aspects of wavelet and subband theory. The book is designed to present an understanding of wavelets and their development from a continuous-domain transformation to a frame representation and finally to multiresolution analysis tools such as subband decomposition. The book presents a theoretical understanding of the subject that is intertwined with practical examples and practical applications of wavelets in ultrasonic and biomedical applications. There is special emphasis on applications in communications and compression as well as image processing. This book provides an understanding of the link between continuous wavelet transform, the fast wavelet transform and subband decomposition. Algorithms and numerical examples are implemented in Matlab. The design of wavelet bases, and how to implement the transform both in hardware and software is discussed in detail. This book covers the fundamentals and the developments of the links between areas such as time-frequency analysis, digital signal processing, image processing and Fourier and wavelet transform, both continuous and discrete. It provides extended mathematical treatment and numerous examples, with particular emphasis to the transition from the continuous domain to multiresolution and subband. The book is an essential text/reference for graduates, researchers, and professionals in electrical engineering, communications engineering and computer engineering. Practitioners and professionals engaged in signal processing, wavelets and Fourier analysis will find the book a useful resource and comprehensive guide.

There are new implementations of most of the major programming systems in this revised book, including the interpreters and compilers, and the authors have incorporated many small changes that reflect their experience teaching the computer science course at MIT since the first edition was published. A new theme has been introduced that emphasizes the central role played by different approaches to dealing with time in computational models: objects with state, concurrent programming, functional programming and lazy evaluation, and nondeterministic programming. There are new example sections on higher-order procedures in graphics and on applications of stream processing in numerical programming, and many exercises. In addition, all the programmes have been reworked to run in any Scheme implementation that adheres to the IEEE standard.

This work began with the author's exploration of the applicability of the finite deformation theory of elasticity when various standard assumptions such as convexity of various energies or ellipticity of the field equations of equilibrium are relinquished. The finite deformation theory of elasticity turns out to be a natural vehicle for the study of phase transitions in solids where thermal effects can be neglected. This is an essential work to those interested in the development and application of continuum-mechanical models that describe the macroscopic response of materials capable of undergoing stress- or temperature-induced transitions between two solid phases. The focus is on the evolution of phase transitions which may be either dynamic or quasi-static, controlled by a kinetic relation which in the framework of classical thermomechanics represents information that is supplementary to the usual balance principles and constitutive laws of conventional theory. The book should be of interest to mechanicians, materials scientists, geophysicists, and applied mathematicians.

``Fundamentals of the Theory of Metals'' has grown out of courses and lectures given by the author over a period of years. Part I is devoted to normal metals and is basically a thoroughly revised version of the author's book ``An Introduction to the Theory of Normal Metals'', originally published in Russian in 1972. It covers the electronic spectra of metals, electrical and thermal conductivities, galvanomagnetic and thermoelectrical phenomena, the behaviour of metals in high-frequency fields, sound absorption and Fermi-liquid phenomena. Part I also deals with the present-day concept of the energy spectra of electrons in metals and with methods that make it possible to study the behaviour of metals in dc and ac fields. Part II is concerned with the theory of superconductivity and offers a detailed description of two fundamental methods: the microscopic theory based on the Bogoliubov method and the Ginzburg-Landau theory, which allows the description of the behaviour of superconductors close to the critical temperature.
