Soil Physical Chemistry, Second Edition takes up where the last edition left off. With comprehensive and contemporary discussions on equilibrium and kinetic aspects of major soil chemical process and reactions this excellent text/reference presents new chapters on precipitation/dissolution, modeling of adsorption reactions at the mineral/water interface, and the chemistry of humic substances. An emphasis is placed on understanding soil chemical reactions from a microscopic point of view and rigorous theoretical developments such as the use of modern in situ surface chemical probes such as x-ray adsorption fine structure (XAFS), Fournier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies, and scanning probe microscopies (SPM) are discussed.

Daily Warm-Up Exercises for Jazz Ensemble was written as a series of studies to aid the jazz group in performance. It is published in two volumes, Volume I for the young or beginning ensemble, and Volume II for the more advanced group. All musical groups need a short period of time during the beginning of a rehearsal to reacquaint their body functions with the needs of making music. Even though individuals warm-up by themselves in preparation for performance, the group as a whole needs to experience basic musical qualities -- blend, balance, precision, intonation -- together to ensure good ensemble performance. Hopefully, this series will provide the jazz ensemble with materials organized in a logical manner to accomplish these goals.

Many biological systems and objects are intrinsically fuzzy as their properties and behaviors contain randomness or uncertainty. In addition, it has been shown that exact or optimal methods have significant limitation in many bioinformatics problems. Fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic are ideal to describe some biological systems/objects and provide good tools for some bioinformatics problems. This book comprehensively addresses several important bioinformatics topics using fuzzy concepts and approaches, including measurement of ontological similarity, protein structure prediction/analysis, and microarray data analysis. It also reviews other bioinformatics applications using fuzzy techniques.
