Originally published in 1953, this book examines the historical growth of Russian from the 11th century to its modern form. Matthews includes an anthology of texts reflective of this evolution accompanied by an English translation on the facing page. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in linguistics or philology.
In 1979 Dr Sperelakis published the `Origin of the Cardiac Resting Potential' in the Handbook of Physiology of the Heart. Since that time, many investigators and teachers of membrane biophysics have used this article as a source of reference on the fundamental principles and equations describing the factors that establish the resting potential in excitable and non-excitable cells. Professor Sperelakis has expanded the scope of this article to provide the present book, creating a comprehensive work and an invaluable reference on the electrophysiological concepts underlying cellular excitability. There has long been a need for a text which precisely defines the assumptions underlying the deriv...
This reference grammar is intended for adult speakers of English who are at the elementary through the intermediate levels of acquisition of the Slovene language. It begins with a brief description of the Slovene language, its major dialects and its place among the Slavic languages. Information on the alphabet, pronunciation, and spelling rules follows. The major part of the work treats the major categories of speech: nouns, adjectives, pronouns, numeral declensions, and verbal conjugations. There are brief sections treating prepositions, adverbs, information on syntactic constructions relevant to the early stages of Slovene language study, and word order and word formation. Word and subject indexes and a bibliography are included. (Contains 30 references.) (Author)
These 22 contributions concentrate primarily on newer applications of the staple EIS technique, and secondarily, on the more recent use of ENA in corrosion research. Papers treat experimental aspects of EIS and data analysis; EIS for investigating the protective properties and degradation of polymer coatings; and EIS in combination with other techniques to study specific corrosion phenomena, e.g., the corrosive rates of steel in soil environments. Mansfeld (U. of Southern California), et al., describe the use of both techniques to monitor the corrosion behavior of active and passive systems exposed to chloride media. The volume includes facts about the Electrochemical Society. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR.
