Boreal Shield Watersheds: Lake Trout Ecosystems in a Changing Environment brings together the work of a renowned international group of scientists who specialize in aquatic science and environmental management. They explore the functioning of Boreal Shield ecosystems, focusing on the lake trout, the classic coldwater species of northern glaciated lakes, using it as an indicator of environmental change and as a model to measure the effectiveness of management actions. This book demonstrates how boreal waters have served as a crucible for decades of environmental research into the impacts of nu

"This is the book about Combinatory Categorial Grammar (CCG) that the community has been waiting for!" -- Mark Johnson, Brown University In this book Mark Steedman argues that the surface syntax of natural languages maps spoken and written forms directly to a compositional semantic representation that includes predicate-argument structure, quantification, and information structure, without constructing any intervening structural representation. His purpose is to construct a principled theory of natural grammar that is directly compatible with both explanatory linguistic accounts

This book looks at the attempts economists have made to understand the significance and implications of time for economic theory. It primarily considers the role of time in microeconomic theory and does so by examining its role in the work of major economists who have considered it either implicitly or explicitly. Among mainstream economists, it looks at the work of Marshall, Walras, Hicks and Debreu, but it also reassesses the contribution of economists outside the mainstream, including Lindahl, Shackle and Lachmann. The book examines issues fundamental to all economic analysis, among them th

It provides a general introduction along with details of analysis and design of a wide range of structures and examination of design according to British and then European Codes. Highly illustrated with numerous line diagrams, tables and worked examples, Reynolds’s Reinforced Concrete Designer’s Handbook is a unique resource providing compreh

To balance the competing goals of reduced infrastructure and enhanced information technology (IT) skills, the Army must manage all its workforces in the IT field. Using Fort Bragg as a test case, this report shows how a linear programming framework helps gauge the impact of decisions that change the IT workforce. With a determination of who can do what in the IT field, the authors conclude that with linear programming the effects of policy changes can be quantified and better understood, various policies can be studied, and the approach can be extended beyond the installation level.
